πŸ† #GooglyPrize πŸ‘€ This Week's Winners - Issue No. 57 πŸ‘€

in googlyprize β€’Β  21 days ago


Welcome to the #GooglyPrize,

celebrating #GooglyEyes on the blockchain.

The ongoing lack of SBD rewards still keeps the prize-pool calculation a bit out-of-tune. But in the meantime we're trying some things with @steembasicincome to spice things up.

100% of all winner-post-rewards (all SP&STEEM) currently grow the funds in the googly-delegation pool with extra oomph, but it still feels like there should be something more permanent to stay with the individual winners here. I am sponsoring the funding for 3 SBI-shares and 2 SBD in cash prizes from my own (@fraenk's) pocket on top of it.

And then there's also the marvellous @marty-art, he must have heard me whining about not having any SBD left, too, and so he sent over another 1 SBD to help out with the liquidity problems in the SBD pool.

So there you have it, it's bonus prizes on top of bonus prizes again. I'll keep an eye on how these SBI-shares work out and we'll see about how we progress with the prize-scheme over here. HF20 should bring back the SBD print-rate in late September, at least for a while, but we might as well develop a permanently sustainable contingency plan.

The Prize Pool:

the SBD pool remains empty: 0.096 SBD
upvote purchases are suspended due to the obvious lack of cash in the pool
and an available delegation-prize of 193.443 SP
100% of all rewards on last week's winner announcement:
0.000 SBD and 10.377 SP and 10.376 STEEM

that makes 0.096 SBD in the cash pool:

40% will be used for next week, 60% will be paid out today!
3rd - 10%; 2nd - 20%; 1st - 30%
The cash-pool is drained, @fraenk is sponsoring 2 SBD and some SBI shares
@marty-art is sponsoring 1 SBD
That's 3.000 SBD in cash prizes!
3rd - 0.500; 2nd - 1.000; 1st - 1.500
plus three @steembasicincome shares!
one for each winner


214.196 SP will be delegated to our googly winners!

@mathowl with

Peggy by @mathowl

Taking a break from his holidays, @mathowl had an unexpected guest to motivate him with his mundane household chores. It's a tough life, but awesome enough for a 3rd prize today!



πŸ₯ˆ The 2nd winner is: πŸ₯ˆ

@kaerpediem with
"Master Shoemacher"

Master Shoemacher by @kaerpediem

This plush eyed shoe tells poetry when there's no foot in his mouth. But apparently a heel to the lip can get you a 2nd prize here. Congrats!



πŸ₯‡ And Our Grand Winner is: πŸ₯‡

@mileidy10 with
"Dr. Blanket"

Dr. Blanket by @mileidy10

A carrot without pants is something special, yes, but this week's winning fruit is truly exotic! And apparently it's healthy, too... did I mention the side-effects might include winning today's grand prize?! Kudos!




another drumroll, please

πŸ₯ this week's Googly-Delegation-Winners are: πŸ₯

@mileidy10; @kaerpediem and @mathowl

you'll receive the delegationf of 107,098; 64,258 and 42,839 SP for a week.

None of our winners is an excessive self-voter nor filthy rich by themselves already, so all of them qualify for a share of this week's googly delegation (50/30/20). Awesome!

since we don't need to expect the SBD-print-rate to suddenly come back before HF20 gets pushed to the network, we'll continue the SBI trial next week, maybe we'll start using the liquid steem funding from this post's rewards. I'll keep you posted...
