Steem2020 contest update - 1500 STEEM prize pool & judges announced

in #steem20203 years ago

2020 is going to be a pivotal year for Steem.

Smart Media Tokens and Hivemind Communities will take Steem into a whole new crypto arena.

But it will take us, all of us in the Steem community, to help propel the platform to the place it deserves to be.

There will be many ways and many ideas of what we should do and how we should get there.

This Steem2020 contest is a chance for everyone to give their input and their plan of action for the coming 12 months - and to win big prizes for doing so!

Thanks to generosity of the contest's new sponsors - @theycallmedan, @yabapmatt of Splinterlands, and @starkerz of the prize pool now stands at the equivalent of over 1500 STEEM.

How to enter...

The full details are in the original post...

In summary, to enter all you have to do is make a post or video with your plan of action for Steem to grow big in 2020.

The more specifics the better. Even targets and a month-by-month roadmap, January to December next year, would be great.

What should be done, who should do it, and how will it be resourced.

And most importantly, how you will get involved and help out.

I'm looking for written posts in the range of 1000 - 2000 words, or videos of 5 - 10 minutes.

Tag your entry posts with #steem2020 and drop a link in the comments of this post or my contest follow-up posts.

I am not sure how quickly people are going to respond to this. I will announce a closing date soon but it will likely run until SteemFest 4.


My original prize pool has been generously doubled by @theycallmedan, and the prizes now stand at...

  • 1st prize - 120 STEEM
  • 2nd prize - 80 STEEM
  • 3rd prize - 40 STEEM

But that is not all as @yabapmatt of @steemmonsters has offered 100 Untamed edition booster packs to be distributed amongst the winners.

Matt @starkerz of @yoodoo and @threespeak has also stepped forward and offered votes from the @oracle-d account - 100% upvote for 1st place, 75% for 2nd, and 50% for 3rd.

And as an added bonus there will be 10% upvotes from @oracle-d for all eligible entries, with an extra 5% for video entries posted on

If anyone else would would like to join in as a Contest Sponsor please contact me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

Thank you for your entry.

Thank you for your awesome contest..
Here is my submission-

Thank you for entering the contest.

I can hardly help, but good luck to the organizers and participants of the contest

Gentleman! That's a definitely interesting. But I think, if you add two things then it will be more interesting.

  1. sharing on social media
  2. Prize distribution between winner. As, I saw in one contest, so that more people may get chance to take something and steemit will get chance to promote.

Sorry! I said much. English is not my native language.
Thanks you!

Damn, top of HOT, you are! I really think we need to fix promoted (mix with trending) but I don't have a massive game plan (or maybe I DO but I can't tell you 😉😜)

Thank you @cadawg.

All game plans - big or small are welcome in the contest...

OK, I'll have to think about it!

That is great future for steem 2020 contest, we are going to rock steem and have freedom. Thanks very much @pennsif

clear and easy to understand. I hope that the successor of Steemit or eSteem 2019-2020 users will get ESTM awards and prizes that are greater than before.
if the steem is already in the form of a token, please make the tolen be disbursed into a real dollar form that will not have to bother exchanging it with bitcoin. so that tokens in the form of dollars can be sent directly to a credit card or bank ATM. Sponsored by

Direct exchange between STEEM and fiat currency will be very useful.

The reward is too small...

An interesting contest! I want to try to take part in it :), I am very glad that steemit is returning!!

Oh yeah, ideas are already poping ! 2020 will be big for us on the Travel Feed team and Steem as a whole.

Thank you for the info.🙂👍

For Steem to "grow big in 2020", we should post less contests, and more content. Less about Steem, and more about what the world needs.

@knowhow92 tipped 100 SKATE TOKENS for this post!

I can not wait

Hey @pennsif! Do you need a Spanish translation of the contest? I can give you a hand with that

Steem Engine and SMTs are the great achievement of Steem. A very simple thing we all can do is just being active and continue. Up and down are part of it, maybe it’s time to see things from another perspective.

Amazing initiative 👏

Nice Contest. Glad to know that its on till steemfest however I will submit my post this weekend. Thanks
