The Contest

A little over a week ago I launched the second edition of my Appreciation Contest, in which I invited people to express their appreciation for two fellow Steemians.

I had to set the limit to two because I knew I would be reading book-length comments all week if I didn't. I knew choosing only two people out of all the amazing people on this platform was difficult for many people. I apologize for that.

If you want to re-read all the beautiful things people had to say about others, you can visit the original contest post by clicking the link below:

🏆 [CONTEST] Appreciate Your Fellow Steemians And Win Amazing Prizes! (Part 2)

I think I'm not exaggerating if I say the contest was a huge success. With 58 contestants and no less than 252 comments, a whole lot of happiness was spread around.

The Prizes

Another reason why I hosted the contest, was to celebrate that I had turned myself into a SteemIt dolphin. At that time, I was so overwhelmed that I made the prize pool a little over the top.

This is the list of prizes I offered:

Prizes include:

  • 4x @steemmonsters boosterpacks (unopened)
  • 8x randomly chosen @steemmonsters cards
  • 3x @steembasicincome shares
  • 2x 25% upvote on a post a day for a week (approximately $0.04) (I orginally said 5x, but I need to keep an eye on my VP)
  • 2x 50% upvote on a post a day for a week (approximately $0.09)
  • 2x 100% full upvote on your next post
  • 3x 3Steem
  • 2x 75P delegation for 4 weeks

You can see I crossed one out. The reason for that is that I never manage to get my VP up to 100%.

But, yesterday, I discovered a brand new initiative that I can use as a replacement for the prize I crossed out.


@incinboost is a service that works like @steembasicincome.

While looking at our competition, the main one was by far @steembasicincome. We had to make sure that our bot could run more profitable than it, less time consuming and have quality customer service. When you look at @steembasicincome, currently 1 share is worth $.0109 per week. In order to beat this, we have doubled the per share value to $.02 a week.
(..) In order to be a member of @incinboost you must have at least 5 shares.
Read their introduction post here


So, instead of the full 100% upvote, I will reward a participant with 5 @incinboost shares.

Altogether I will be giving away no less than 25 prizes!

The Winners

To select the winners for my SteemMonsters Card Giveaway, I used a tool called Random Picker. For me, it appeared to be the fairest and easiest tool to use to select random winners.

So I've used it again. It did take me quite some time to list all participants, lol.
But I managed.

And The Winners Are...

Congrats to all the winners .. .

·

Sorry you didn't win, @rentmoney

·
·

No sorry needed, it was a cool contest that I had fun participating in :)

Nice!

Thanks for the prize, looking forward to my 'Legendary' already!

·

Who knows... lol

Congratulations to the winners!!

It must have been fun. By the way, what is a dolphin?

·

It was fun.
On SteemIt, every category of Steemians has been given the name of a sea creature

-500SP is a redfish or plankton
500-5000SPis minnow
+5000Sp is a dolphin
And I'm not sue how many SPyou need to first turn into an orca, and later into a whale

Yowsah!!! 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽
I am off to bed and dancing all the way
Thank you so much @simpleymike
I cannot imagine how you did it with the response you received...

Congratulations to all the winners!!

·

Congratulations on winning the Steem prize. I will send it out first thing tomorrow.

Congrats again on making to the level you are at but you earned it. Also invested in it. Thanks for the contest was cool to win a pack of cards. Thanks so much and I do appreciate you.

·

Congrats on winning a booster pack.
This was fun, but from now on, the prizes for my contests will be brought back to a normal level, lol. Or I'll be broke in no time :0)

I am pretty sure a lot of people appreciate you. I know I am over the top happy about my prize. That helps so much! Thank you.
Congrats to all of the winners and congrats on such a successful contest.

·

I thought you would be. I'll be sending out the prizes tomorrow

·
·

Yeah you know my goals and intentions well enough by now I suppose lol
Thanks again :)

Yay, a card! Thank you!

And I had never heard of @incinboost before. I'll look into it.

Edit: just checked Incinboost. It's just started yesterday! No wonder I hadn't heard of it yet. :D

·

Spots are almost filled up!

·

Yep, they are brand new, @aiyumi

·
·

Sounds interesting. I've just published a post to tell my readers about them.

Yay! I'm a winner! But the real winners are all the people who got to feel that little bit of extra appreciation. What a great community. <3

Now what is Steem Basic Income? Let me get my search button working. :-)

·

A share of @steembasicincome gives you a small upvote on your posts. the more shares you have, the bigger the upvte will be, @mattifer

·
·

Sounds like a winner to me. Thanks! I read a bit about it and it looks like a person sponsors another person by sending 1 SP. Is that correct? And then each person, the sponsor and the sponsee get the SBI? I get lost easily in steem posts. :-)

·
·
·

Yep, you've got it (Sorry, it being a sponsorship system was an important part I forgot to mention, lol)

And it is 1 Steem instead of 1SP.

·
·
·
·

I know there are a million posts that answer this question, but in a nutshell, what's the difference in value between steem and SP?

·
·
·
·
·

Steem is liquid and can be cashed out by exchanging it to fiat. SP is what determines your vote value and account power and is 'stuck'. Hereby I mean that you can't exchange it back to fiat instantly. You first have to power down, which takes some time, to turn it into Steem again, which than can be exchanged into fiat.
That's it in a nutshell, just before I'm off to bed.

There's some detailed info in the SteemIt FAQ: https://steemit.com/faq.html#What_is_the_difference_between_STEEM__STEEM_Power__and_Steem_Dollars

Thanks for making it succinct. I get sooooo lost in long posts that explain all the nuances. :-)

Congratulations to all the winners, and thanks to @simplymike for hosting such a fun contest! I've found some new people already to follow. :)

Looking forward to see what @incinboost does vis-a-vis SBI, of which I already have numerous shares. This is exciting!

·

We do a lot more, that’s for sure 😃

·
·

LOL! Well played, good sir. :)

·

I was not sure whether you would like the prize. I'm happy to hear you do. I've just sent the sponsorship

·
·

And it's already been paying off, @simplymike. I really can't thank you enough for the reward, and I'm getting together the resources to sponsor some others into it. :)

·
·
·

you're welcome. And that's nice to hear that you're already working towards sponsoring others into the program

·

Congratulations,@pardinus. Thanks again for joining.

Another successful contest @simplymike! I loved reading all the beautiful comments too :) You're pretty awesome; do you know that??! :)

·

Thanks, but I think especially the people who joined the contest and their nominees are pretty awesome.
I love to host this contest, so many smiles, and even tears of joy this time :0)

And you know what's strange? When I went to the steemmonsters site to start giving away the prizes, I noticed I was gifted 6 packs - exactly the numbe i needed to give everyone his prize. I was so stunned that I forgot to check who had sent them to me, lol.
Life works in mysterious ways :0)

·
·

awww that's awesome! I love when someone anonymously gives something ... so truly selfless :)

Yeahh, my first SteemMonster Card ever, I love them and I always wanted one :) that's so cool!!!

Thank you so much @simplymike what a wonderful surprise and what an amazing contest!!!

·
·

Thank you for being so generous!

·
·
·

You're welcome. Thanks again for joining the contest.

Thank you for the prize @simplymike, it is really great and I think that it should however be awarded to someone I know can make the best use thereof, since she is chasing her target of 500 I would if allowed nominate maquemali to receive the upvotes for a week... or is it a use it or lose it situation :)

·

No problem, I will change it.
Very generous gesture, @penderis

·
·
·

Awesome thank you. congrats again on hitting Dolphin.
