Retweet and Reblog Contest, $200 + Payout Giveaway

in steemit •  2 years ago

CONTEST HAS ENDED

I will give $50 SBD to a randomly selected user who upvotes this Steemit post.

Oh, that's just vote buying, right? Well I'll give the full SBD value of this post payout and $100 extra to a randomly selected user who retweets the following tweet:

https://twitter.com/EoinCarroll50/status/807288862519283713

I stake my public reputation that I will make these payouts, however it works out. Payout for the tweet will be via your choice of Bitcoin, PayPal or Steem Dollars (if you register with Steemit). How I choose the random users can be discussed in the comments if needed.

Edit: Gonna give an additional $50 to a random user who resteems. Also, competition ends with the first payout for this post.

Another update: the payout will include that from related posts such as this:

Edit2: Contest is over, I will take a snapshot of retweets now, and random selection and announcement of winners will happen tomorrow.

Curious what result your experiment will bring. I wonder in principle what value attention will have going forward into the attention economy. The telecom industry already predicts that in a number of years communication will be free of charge because the costs will be covered by companies who live of the attention economy. I myself wonder when attention will reach a value that you can travel free of charge by plane to key destinations.

Hmm, as steempower holders, steemit is our key to a piece of the attention economy revenue. Your initial question is a good one, and a philosophical one at that.

Upvoted and resteemed. Interested to see how this one turns out, regardless of whether I win anything or now.

I usually don't do these but your angle caught my eye. Good on you

To prove that your attention is worth money I will give $100 plus the payout of this post to a random retweeter.

You've got my vote.

Retweeted.
sorry that took me a while to do. I had to find out how to retweet something.
I've never done that before ;-)

As for how to randomly select the winner, my favourite strategy is to pick someone with a name that sounds like... Trevor.

Then from that list pick someone who lives in a small south pacific country like..... New Zealand.

And then from that list pick the one who is closest in age to a specific number, like oh, I don't know.... 50.

So there you are give that strategy a whirl and see how it works out. It has always worked well for me :-)

Well, you got my attention. Retweeted, resteemed, upvoted, etc.
Curious to see how this pans out.

Done upvote , resteem , retweet and write u a comment in twitter ;) . May the best winner win :p

Retweeted under user name @HoosierDeb2.

Interesting experiment!

I've upvoted but I'll exclude myself from the experiment. I'm also sorry to @beanz but I'll have to exclude her too as an immediate relative, just in case.

·

Omitted by my own brother :'(

haha

I resteemed, tweeted and upvoted all the same because at least this votebuying is good for steemit and promotes the platform!

Great experiment. Upvoted and tweet retweeted.

Let's do it! Retweeted!

Upvoted and resteemed, but I lack the Twitter account. haha

Here we go lets see what happens

voted and resteemed...
:D i'm not a tweeting kinda guy

i don't use twitter and resteems stick around forever.

·

Ok, I'll count it for the reward. However I'll have to avoid counting every possible share to prevent it getting too complex.

·
·

I've resteemed it, too.

·

I "reminded" yours @freebornangel.

@demotruk I've also upvoted this post, and retweeted your tweet under the account AmbyR00.

I'm curious about your experiment : )
upvoted and resteemed.
Good luck

Interesting experiment, but this is more of a contest entry than actually buying each one of our attention or retweets! The possibility of winning a lot is what catches our interest, not the immediate reward of being paid.

Edit: Still interesting and seems genuine, also I am not against vote buying. Upvoted and retweeted!

·

True. If it was easy to split the money out between everyone (especially on Twitter that will be hard) I would do the 'buy attention' thing more literally.

·
·

Yeah it definitely is not easy, you need a script for steemit and for twitter it would be brutally hard to manually do it! I know you would ^_^

Hi @ballinconscious, congratulations, you won the main prize!

https://steemit.com/contest/@demotruk/congratulations-to-ballinconscious-codydeeds-alexpmorris-retweet-contest-winners

$110, how would you like it sent? Steem Dollars is ideal for me, but I can also send it via Bitcoin or PayPal.

Holy crap this is freaking awesome! i have been more lucky with winning contests on steemit than I have been with all other contests during my whole life combined I think! So glad I tweeted, at first I was thinking,"well there is no guarantee since it is a contest and it looks like my odds will be low because of all the other entries". :p

Wow thank you so much. I really appreciate you and the random algorithm that you chose that chose me ^_^ Obviously I am following you now :p

P.S. Mmmm definitely not paypal :p either bitcoin since it might go up or SBD since there is 9% interest. Let me check the bitcoin chart now first before i decided :p

Have you decided Steem Dollars or Bitcoin?

If you want Bitcoin just send me an address (it will have to be done publicly that I can prove that I sent it.

Because this will be ending so late in the day for me, I will try to take a snapshot of the retweets etc. at the end of the competition, but I will have to wait until tomorrow to do the winner selection and payouts.

Here's how I'll select the winners in a verifiable way:

I've created lists as replies to this post, with a number for each entrant. They are verifiable on the blockchain.

For each contest (retweet, upvote, reblog) I will choose a coming Bitcoin block which has not occurred at the time of this post.

Retweet: 422935
Upvote: 422936
Reblog: 422937

For each contest I will take the hash of the block, and get the mod of the result vs. the number of entrants. Mod(hash, total_entrants) + 1 = the winner.
