The prize pool is part of "The Steemit Fantasy League". The Steemit Fantasy League is a league in the official Premier League Fantasy Game. The Premier League Fantasy Game has more than eight million participants this year, but they are not aware that another prize pool might end being bigger than the official one. If the support from the Steemit community will continue and the price of STEEM will increase, it might actually happen.
We have passed week 7 out of 38 weeks of the game which, as written, equals into almost 660 STEEM. If that trend continues we will end up with a prize pool of 3564 STEEM. At the current price of STEEM that will end up being 3813 $. As the game does not end until the end of may, we hopefully see the price of STEEM increasing a lot before that. With the arrival of SMT in 2018, we believe the chances are good. If the price of STEEM goes to 2,5 $ pr STEEM, the prize pool will be 8910 $. 2,5 seems realistic to happen within the next 7 months. Let's imagine the best. Let's imagine STEEM goes to 5 $. That would take the prize pool to 17820 $. If that happens, there's not only beneficial for the participants in this league but benefit the whole community.
The Premier League is something a lot of sports interested fancy. Acidyo decided to create this game to add a little bit more fun to the game. He thought it would be great fun to create a league for Steemit users only. Games like these are great for the community. They are exclusive for Steemit users, and bonds the community in a great way. None of the users participating have to pay anything to take part, and therefore it's a win/win.
This game and prize pool is ONLY available for users on Steemit.
When the game is over, the prize pool has been split amongst the winners, another game begins. The Game of Marketing. I believe there is huge marketing potential in this. The interest for Premier League is huge, and so is the Premier League Fantasy Game. If the prize pool ends up being a huge success, which it actually already is, we could use this case to promote Steemit within the sports community outside of Steemit. Let's continue this post in the comments. What do you guys think the potential could be if this game ends up being just as rewardable as the official game?
