You will ALL get your part from the prize pool. Indeed, the announcement mentioned that:

The remaining of the prize pool (56%) will be split among all participants proportionally to the number of MSC points collected.

There were a total of 2065 valid mutual meetings
Altogether, the top 10 contestants made 555 valid mutual meetings
All other contestants made 1510 valid mutual meetings (2065 - 555)

The prize pool was 2333 STEEM thanks to our awesome sponsors!

1026.52 STEEM have been awarded to the top 10 contestants.
The remaining of the prize pool for other contestants is 1306.48 STEEM (2333 - 1026.52)

Therefore, each valid mutual meeting is worth 0.865 STEEM (1306.48 / 1510)

Rewards will be distributed in 24 hours, which should allow those who would like to challenge these results (errare humanum est) to come forward.

An additional reward for everyone!

Finally, each participant of the Meet the Steemians Contest will also receive this commemorative badge, which will be displayed on your personal page.

Congratulations to all the contestant, to the winners and thank you all for your friendly participation in this contest!

A last word from @arcange

This post put an end to the SteemFest³ Meet the Steemians Contest.

Steemfest has been absolutely amazing to me and I hope you enjoyed the contest as I did. I saw a lot of people walking around with their smartphone at hand, ready to scan meet someone they had not talked to yet. The SteemFest app, which has existed since the very first edition, has never been used so much.

I am delighted that the financial aspect of the contest, while being a motivating element, has quickly disappeared from everyone's mind, giving way to fun and the pleasure of human encounters.

I received a lot of feedback from many participants, expressing their gratitude and explaining how this contest has allowed them to break the ice and talk to people they would never dare to approach.

This was my main goal at organizing this contest and I can not find words to say how pleased I am with the success of this initiative.

There has been a tremendous amount of work done and I want to warmly thank the entire team who worked with me behind the scenes. I will once more say thank you to @roelandp and to the sponsors for their trust and unconditional support!

I look forward to next year for a new contest and new rules. I learned a lot from this first experiment and I already have plenty of new ideas... ^^

Thank you and see you all at SteemFest 4!

Congratulations! You have all won. If not points or prize, at least a new connection or two.

(Gamification, right?)

I will be donating my whole prize to @t-r-f (SteemFest Travel Reimbursement Fund to help cover (some of the) travel expenses of SteemFest attendees.

Some improvements to the next version of a game:
"Connected with 25% attendees - free drinks unlocked"
etc ;-)


Congratulations for reaching the 4th position @gtg!
This is so generous from you to transfer your prize to the @t-r-f, as I know you already contributed a lot to it!

Nice Contest, but in my opinion the Gold/Silver/Bronze bonus points are overvalued, for instance I got kicked down from #12 to #23 due to the bonus points. I'm not complaining about my rank and I also don't care about the lower reward, but it feels weird when you fall behind someone where you have almost two and a half times as many scans (example: RemyHuxley #19 with 12 scans, myself #23 with 28 scans). In my opinion it would be better if for example Gold moves you up 5 positions, Silver 3 postitions and Bronze one position.


Thanks for your feedback @twinner

in my opinion the Gold/Silver/Bronze bonus points are overvalued

The purpose of this rule was to encourage people to go to those they do not know, those who are less famous, because they could potentially be worth a lot of points. I was aware that it would have a big impact on the ranking order and it was totally wanted.

I discussed it with several contestants and many of them, who gave more importance to fun and meetings, didn't care and found it amusing, although I can understand that it is different from the usual competitions and that it may seem strange.

Anyway, I learned a lot from this first experiment and we may operate differently next time.


Yeah I also went from 10 to 14 and so out of the big rewards :(

Sad ;(

Yay :) now I only need to decide what project to donate the money to... :D


Donate it to @t-r-f :) @gtg already does it, maybe @roxane and @arcange will too 😊 would be a nice twist to the contest 😇


Seems like it hasn't paid out yet, so here we go!


That is a really cool and community orientated activity.

Thanks for helping all that people from @t-r-f- aka the SteemFest Travel Reimbursement Fund


Congratulation for your 2nd place @suesa! Great come back thanks to the special attendees ;)

Payment of reward will be done in a few hours. This delay is intended, to allow people who might contest the results to do so.

Apart of that, I'm positively impressed by your generosity. Great move!


Only special people like 2nd place winners. Go 2nd!


The contest was a fun thing to do, and to me, it was never about the money :) It only feels right to give the money back to those who made those few days the great experience it was!


If it isn't paid out yet, sure! Seems like a good idea.


Oh btw do you two still want to collaborate on the Bitcoin Around the World documentary?? Perhaps showcase some Steemit projects in the film?


Ahh dang I forgot to respond to that email :/ chat me up on discord and then let's talk :)


I'm new to Discord so not terribly sure how to find you, sorry :(
Here's me: BitcoinAroundtheWorld#1821

Wow 5th place seems to be my lucky number this steemfest haha first at poker and now here! Was a lot of fun and a great initiative!! I loved to use the scan to get in touch with as many people as possible :) Of course @roxanne hit it off haha. Thanks for the hard work! Already looking forward to next year! Cheers, Liz


Thank you Liz, see you next year!

Sure. I may setup a meetup in Belgium or something like @beersaturday with @detlev

Fantastic job all around guys!!!! The contest was a blast as well as pretty much every aspect of SteemFest. Thank you for doing all the things needed to allow us to enjoy ourself so much. You are all rockstars. Also, congrats to the winners!!!!

Congrats to all that played the game. I think the idea behind it was amazing and the 2 min catch made people even more competitive. I believe it is important how many real connections/conversation we had and I am happy to say that it did happen in my case. Congrats @roxanne, you rock

Hi i am new here so everyone help

Congratulations! Nice Contest.

Hi @arcange, first at all great job!

You made all of us engaging with all other attendees of SteemFest

I got as well a bit confused with that bonus points and my account was falling from 10/11 back to 20 as I had not a clue what to do.

Anyway, love to see your new flux project working live soon and like to say thank you for being on my moderation on steemfest stage 2

Hello Sir, Topu777, hacked my Google account by hacking my Google account, I have not given any money to me, I have told you with a dollar and many of them have steam accounts, they are deceiving people with simple simple people. Bangladesh is a smart hacker.Sir first 1325 from me and then 210 sb then another account onik444 took it from 43.041 steam.People like them are making us simple simple people like us, if they do not take any action against them, then nobody can work in the stream.

Was indeed a fun contest and a good app. Thank you :)

Ooh look. @steevc in 12th place.

What someone says is far more important than how they say it!
