SteemitBoard World Cup Contest - Collect badges and win free SBD - 1700 SBD prize pool!

in steemitboard •  last month

The Football World Cup 2018 organized by Russia will kick off tomorrow!

To participate to this worldwide event, @Steemitboard has prepared funny contest that will last for the whole duration of the competition and will allow you to collect badges and win free SBD.

The prize pool is currently 1700 SBD!

The contest is open to everybody, whether you are a football fan or not, and we made the participation process and rules as simple as possible.

Check the Word Cup 2018 tab on your board

Go to SteemitBoard website and type your name to access your board.
(You can install the SteemitBoard Google Chrome Extension to speed up this process.)

You will notice there is a new Word Cup 2018 tab which contains a badge for each match of the competition.

Your goal is to light up a maximum of badges among the 64 ones available!

How it works?

For each match, @steemitboard will publish a related post 24 hours before the match begins. You can check when match is scheduled by clicking on the locked badge.

Under each post, there will be comments made by @steemitboard:

  1. Team A win
  2. Team B win
  3. Tie

PS: The 3rd comment will only be present during group phase.

You simply have to vote for the comment that corresponds to the result you expect for the match.

Example:

  • The match Russia vs Saudi Arabia is scheduled 2018-06-14 at 15:00 UTC time

  • On 2018-06-13 at 15:00 UTC, @steemitboard will unlock the badge on your board and publish a post “World Cup Contest - Russia vs Saudi Arabia” with 3 comments:
    “RUS - Russia win”
    “SAU - Saudi Arabia win”
    “TIE - no winner”

  • If you think Russia will win, vote for the first comment.
    If you think Saudi Arabia will win, vote for the second comment.
    If you think the result will be a tie, vote for the last comment.

Each time you successfully guessed a match result, the related badge on your board will light up!

What prize will you receive?

The prize pool will be split among participants using the following rules:

1st place: 20% of the prize pool
2nd place: 10% of the prize pool
3rd place: 5% of the prize pool

The remaining of the prize pool will be split among all participants proportionally to their number of lightened badges and the total of successful votes among participants.

Example:
All participants (excluded the 3 top winners) together lightened 1000 badges
You successfully guessed 34 match results.
You will receive 34/1000th of the remaining prize pool.

How to win the contest?

When the competition is over, we will count the number of badges collected by each participant. The more badges you have enabled, the higher your place in the ranking.

In the event of a tie between the top players, the winner will be the one who first lightened all his badges. This means that the badges obtained during the group stage will weigh more than those in the final.

Example:

  • Player A collected 10 badges during the group phase
  • Player B collected 9 badges during the group phase and 1 for the final
    Therefore Player A will be the winner.

If there is still a tie after applying the previous rule, the voting time of the players will decide, the winner being the first to vote.

Contest Global Rules

Register the contest by sending 0.010 SBD or 0.010 STEEM to @steemitboardpool with “worldcup2018” in the memo. This is a one time registration to avoid the contest being spammed by bots.

Your registration will be added to the prize pool so you might get it back at the end of the contest.

You can join the contest at any time, but the sooner you get in, the more chances you have to win the 1st prize.

For each match:

  1. Vote for you preferred team BEFORE the match begins (official time)

  2. Only one vote will be taken into account.
    If you remove your vote and/or vote for another result, you will be disqualified for the match. Think twice before voting for your result!

  3. Votes cast after the scheduled start time of the match will be rejected.
    Be careful, all times mentioned within this contest will be UTC based! Check your timezone!

Good luck and enjoy the World Cup 2018!

Sounds really cool - But will I really need to resteem EVERY Match post?

Upvoted for visibility!

·

Resteem requirement has been removed. Thanks for your feedback.

·
·

Thanks!

·
·
·

I registrred myself how to join the contest @arcange Sir?

·
·

Do we need to vote 100 percent ? I just registered.

·

OMG, for sure not, this would spam the blockchain to death :)

·
·

We are really far away from spamming the blochchain with a few reblog transactions.

·
·
·

If each game is resteemed by only 300 gamers, then its a few thousand unnecessary transactions. I am not worried about the Steem blockchain not absorbing this, just many individual feeds will get clogged.
And in addition I hardly resteem, because I want to keep an overview in my blog about what I have written. As you know there is still no filter possibility in steemit.com.
And these multiple repetitive resteems add no value.

That's good that you chamge your previous assumptions

·

Yes, that's in the rule. Is that so exhausting?

·
·

Yes, I think it's the wrong approach. Require a resteem on every post will lower the engagement, IMO. I won't participate in every match if it requires me to flood my users with resteems. How about a compromise and go with one resteem per week or something like that (or maybe not at all)? I've never liked the "I'll give you something if you share my post" approach because it lowers the value of the resteem. I try to only resteem things I think my followers will enjoy, and I won't sell their attention for a contest. That said, I do think this is a really cool idea and will share this post to let people know about it, but as a gold sponsor, I hope you remove the resteem requirement. I'd rather people have so much fun with this contest that they write original posts about it instead of just resteems which they were required to do in order to play along.

Just my two cents.

·
·
·

Thanks you for this constructive and elaborated comment. You made the point and the resteem requirement has been removed.
Thanks for being such an engaged sponsor!

·
·
·
·

I'm very glad to hear it. I hope more and more people enjoy the contest and share it with their friends.

·
·

Not too exhausting - but I can't do that to my followers, will have to use a small secondary account than. Would probably be wiser to let the players resteem one post in total (in the best case the intro).

·
·
·

Yes, this makes most sense.

·
·

I like to resteem important posts. Resteeming daily contests isn't my cup of tea neither.

·
·
·

We removed the resteem requirement

·

I am wondering if a hundred accounts on my list resteemed the same football post 3 or 4 times in day. It will all be messed up.

I hope those i am following are not considering that...then we see again soon, sometimes in july.
😁

·

just wanted to post exactly this. I was planning on using my secondary account for this contest, as resteeming every single post is something that would have completely hidden any content of my blog. But even with the secondary acc, it felt not good.

Glad that it's been removed!

·
·

so a secondary account means you have two accounts? Is it allowed in Steemit? i am a newbie so help me understand about this part. Thank you @sco and @golddeejay

·
·
·

Hi. Yes, you are allowed to have unlimited numbers of accounts. BUT: You have to pay a 5 STEEM creation fee for them, and aquire them via anonsteem, not steemit.

·

Can I write a post in Hindi

·

Can I write a post in Hindi

·
·

Yes. You are encouraged to add to the diversity of steemit. There should be a tag you can use for your language.

·

It's really an amazing contest. I want to participate in this. But To participate in this contest there is need to send some steem or SBD. And I have no any steem so I cannot participate.
Sorry...
And thanks for organising this contest.

·

Really want to register, how can I register my self??

Amazing contest. I will participate

Do the votes have to be 100%?

I'm excited about fun stuff like this on STEEM! Thanks for putting this together, @arcange. I hope a lot of people enjoy it and come together for some fun.

·

Yeah, I hope we will all enjoy this contest and have fun with it.
Thanks a lot for your great support and awesome sponsorship!

·

You’re the man Luke!

·
·

@Lukestokes and @Arcange thanks for letting us enjoy the contest.
Also, thank you for sponsoring this. i voted your witness too.

That's a beautiful idea :-) I will certainly participate :-) Thank you for creating this betting game !

Thanks a lot for organizing this! I have participated (and guessed) different times but now that I know the rules better :-) I will use this better.

nice idea, u guys de creme de la creme . greez s. error

I haven’t been keeping up with soccer, but I will play - sounds like fun! 😊

I look forward. It will be fun.

That's a great idea! Brings the community together! :)

I try to find the "World Cup 2018" page on my steemitboard but there is none. I am able to see the board of others so I am kind of wondering what's wrong with my account ?

Looking forward to a solution - want to collect those badges :D

·

You may need to refresh your browser to see it (CTRL+F5)

Wow! Awesome sponsorship!

This is very lovely... I can't wait to be part of this 😁😁

Great.
I will participate.

great =)

Will play with the new experience of the game. and taking the world Cup

  1. The match posts will be created by @steemitboard or @steemitboardpool? Just wondering which account to follow.
  2. Any minimum vp % for the comment?
·
  1. @steemitboard will be publish posts . @steemitboardpool is just a fund holder account
  2. No minimum required. We made it simple.
    Anyway, feel free to use some VP to kind of "sponsor" the event. There is a lot of work done under the hood ;)

This is fantastic concept, this is beautiful I'm participating, can I send my 0.010 already? before doing anything?

·

Thanks for your comment @josediccus. Great to have you onboard.

can I send my 0.010 already

Yes, registrations are open!

·
·

I already did instantly waiting for 4; 00 WAT

Very much looking forward to this! :D

If I understand correctly, we will need to resteem 64 posts? If so, that is little bit stupid. No offense.

·

The resteem requirement has been removed. Thanks for your feedback.

Its an amazing thought

Nice one, and i will love to be part of it

Count me in this could be really fun!

·

I guess one question I had was is the .01 SBD/Steem only for registration or do we have to send it for every game? Thanks

·
·

You do not have to send it for each match. As explained in the post, it is a one time registration.

I am kind of discourage @steemitboard, bcus i dont get upvoted on my post and its like i am just wasting my time. Well want to let you know how i feel i'm not encourage thanks.

·

Getting success on Steemit is a long run. Stay committed, focus on quality and interact with others to create your network.
Good luck @ehiso.

·
·

Thanks for your advice

·
·
·

@ehiso follow me for a follow back. I will give you some upvotes

Nice one @arcange - I also started a contest that combines 50% prizes for steemians and the other 50% overall prize pot that goes to charity. If you are interested check the account @sportsgeek that handles the contest. The more contests we have, the better. Any question on rules let me know.

Never been a fan of the World Cup but I am this year!!! :D

Big thanks to the sponsors and @steemitboard!

Awesome to see the sponsorship increasing.

I love the contest idea, but resteeming so many posts...sometimes 3 or 4 in a day will messed up someone's blog and everything.

·

The resteem requirement has been removed. Thanks for your feedback.

·
·

That is amazing. Thanks for considering our opinions!

Hi everyone, my question is, should I register with 0.010 SBD in each game?

By the way, this is your spectacular contest.

·

Hey @edgarf1979,

should I register with 0.010 SBD in each game?

No, send ONLY ONE TIME.

It's a one-time fee to discourage bots.

Great idea and exciting World Cup Football Contest, @arcange. I registered already. I just promised myself on the weekend that I'd stop resteeming so many posts so I'll only enter a few of the match contests. That's ok, though. I will enjoy the rest of the contests from the sidelines. Sending you lots of energy for all the work you'll be putting in overseeing this. ;)

·

The resteem requirement has been removed. Thanks for your feedback.

·
·

Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know @arcange aka @steemitboard. I will still resteem some of the match posts and/or maybe even write up a post or two. ;)

I had a few chuckles reading up on Russia and Saudi Arabia last night, then decided I'd sleep on it before voting. Now I have to go decide. Nervous! ;)

Thanks so much again for all this fun. I haven't followed and cheered on WC for a few years so I'm so happy for this Contest.

Sorry please clarify:

Register the contest by sending 0.010 SBD or 0.010 STEEM to @steemitboardpool with “worldcup2018” in the memo.

IF we dont send this sbd would our correct guesses be awarded still ?

·

No, the transfer of SBD/STEEM is what register you and allows you to be rewarded

Saudi Arabia is won the match.This is new team in this world cup but they are play well.

I registered newly and dont have SBD yet.
Can anyone lend me 0.01 SBD until I got mine granted? =)

Ya hice la transferencia pero no me salen las preguntas, como hago?

This will be fun! Its great to see how the blockchain can facilitate these concepts.

@steemitboard this is so awesome.
Lovely one for the world cup. Am in and i want other folks to see beyond spam. I dont mind resteem almost all post either.
So much fun watching , playing and winning too. Russia see me in your street.
But please i think lots of new users if steemit it like myself need lots of encouragement with upvotes and the like, so our participation in all these contest.
Thanks to @steemitboard for their efforts often time.
Still Elisedaniels...Love for the Gospel.

My Mother, This is great. Very good. Congratulations. They are very beautiful.

Hello friends @steemitboard. I am posting the contest and making certain translations into Spanish for all Spanish speakers and to publicize the contest.

I did not want to do something wrong, I did not translate from English into Italian and I put the comment as in the first post ... . is it possible to delete comments and remove these flags ... since I just wanted to participate in your competition? I apologize for my English use the translator ..

Tom
There are so many things to fix on Steemit.

It's not to late to join the contest. You may have some fun and in all case a (small) share of the prize pool if you successfully guess some match results.
