Bitshares sponsors SteemFest3 in Kraków and gives away 5 full conference tickets

With only about a month to go, Kraków is slowly heating up to the thought of Steemians warming up the town. We can't wait either and help out some of you in dire need but with less funds to get a shot at a free ticket to the event as part of the Bitshares sponsorship of SteemFest3.

If you don't know Bitshares, read on, because we're going to interrogate you if you make it to Kraków :)

What is Bitshares?

Bitshares offers a stack of financial services including exchange and banking on a blockchain which core technology is similar, and actually a predecessor to the Steem chain.

The Bitshares blockchain is most known for enabling a Decentralised Exchange platform which has similar features as centralised exchanges such as Bittrex/Huobi/Poloniex/Binance and the likes but then with all accounts stored on a blockchain. A blockchain with similar API's and core foundations as Steem's by the way. Obvious advantages are transparency, accountability and a trustless environment as you don't need to put trust in the owners of a central exchange. The beauty of having the blockchain and the interface separated is that one chain can host several 'interface' exchanges.

Just like Steem has Steemit.com, Busy.org, D.tube and many, many other dApps and interfaces, Bitshares has seen built on top of it's chain interfaces such as Bitshares.org, Openledger DEX, RuDex, Cryptobridge or for example the MagicWallet app.

If you are a developer and want to learn more about Bitshares API's you should devinetely checkout https://dev.bitshares.works

Next to these "regular" exchange features, anyone can issue a "token" or "digital asset" through Bitshares' regulation compatible cryptoasset issuance service. Also, the chain boast the existence of several Smartcoins or so-called Market Pegged Assets, which are stable coins pegged to the dollar or other fiat currencies or assets.

One of the very first DAC's

Bitshares founded in 2013 and has seen several forks since then. Development of the chain is funded through the chain's Decentralised Autonomous Cooperation system, called "Workers". It is this feature which enables anyone (with an account) to propose work to be done for the chain such as "develop an app" or "work on implementing new authorization permissions" but also "sponsor SteemFest" and see if enough stakeholders can align and vote for the worker proposal, which then vests the funds proposed over a configurable course of time.

BTS - a utility token and your stake to the DEX

Unlike Steem, Bitshares is a fee-based chain where operations are (normally) paid in bits of BTS. BTS is also the core counter pair on the exchange itself and the more BTS one holds, the more influence you can execute on the governance of the blockchain, election of witnesses, committee members and voting of worker proposals. Did you know you can also buy your SteemFest ticket with BTS?

The Bitshares blockchain is funding its sponsorship of SteemFest thanks to Worker Proposal 1.14.123

Part of the proposed sponsorship is this SteemFest ticket give-away competition :) And we guess that might be what you are here for. In total there are 5 SteemFest Kraków tickets to be given away to some lucky winners, it could be you!

I have already booked my flight and accomodation in Krakow. However I'm lacking the the funds to buy the @steemfest ticket. Here's the proof of flight and accomodation.

It would be amazing for me to win this ticket. As of now I am getting nervous because of the price hike in 3 days. I could pay it but it would mean being broke in Krakow. Worst thing that could happen is I end up tailgating Steemfest. Lol.

Thanks a lot

Cheers

Woop woop! Bitshares and Steem have a lot of synergy potential - great that such thinking is being leveraged here. Even more of a pity that I won't make it to Steem Fest :-/

Thanks so much for this support of the Steem community :)
My only concern is that the price of tickets goes up before the competition closes, so I can't wait to see if I win here to get the current price of tickets, which means I might have to buy a ticket with whatever money I can find and may end up winning one that I can't use.

·

Hey I just read this. I think a good one would then be selling that ticket or the won ticket for e.g. 50% of the price so you find someone, and both of you have a very good deal?

·
·

Ahoy! Sure, there could be options like that - I am not complaining about the possibility of winning a free ticket. How much do the prices go up in 2 weeks time?

·
·
·

by 20% of the costprice (which is a 111 eur hike) but should one extra sponsor be found I am able to keep the 444 eur i think, but i have to look at the budget carefully.

·
·
·
·

OK, thanks for letting me know. One last question:)
Is it possible to let the chefs know for the event that I eat vegan food? Do I fill a field in after paying for the ticket?

·
·
·
·
·

we will inquiry about dietary requests 1 week prior to the event

·
·

OK, great :)
