2019 Steem Round (2.5 entries 😂🤣)

in steemsilvergold •  2 months ago  (edited)

It is that time again!


Time to submit your design for the 2019 Steem Round!


What is the Steem Round?

Two years ago steem silver gold community member @sevinwilson had a brilliant idea! He suggested the community should design a one ounce silver round especially for Steemit. Designs were submitted. Votes were cast and the round was made. 1500 were minted and they sold like hot cakes. In 2018 the whole process was repeated.

2017 and 2018 Rounds

Throwing my hat in the ring.

So I was mucking around over the weekend and came up with a couple of my own entries. I am so, so at drawing and don’t have any amazing design software. Here are three mock ups from my phone! 😄

@dfinney option 1:

Here we have a phoenix rising from the ashes. Steem value was low, hard fork 20 got us down, but as we all keep steeming ahead, Steem will rise to bigger and better things.

The words at the top of the round are from Seneca, a Roman philosopher/statesman. Ignis aurum probat, miseria fortes homines. In English this translates to:

“As gold is tempered by fire, so strong men are tempered by suffering". The meaning is that in order to become pure gold, the original gold-bearing ore must go through the tempering process of fire; the analogy being that for a man strong in spirit, adversity and suffering are the tempering agents necessary to refine his character and bring out his true potential. Source

In the case of Steem and Steemit, there have been challenges, but ultimately our communities have become stronger as a result. ☺️

@dfinney option 2:

Steem to the moon! We all hope the value of Steem will rise. The little steem rocket here is launching past constellations of minnows, dolphins and whales to do just that.

@dfinney option 3:

This one is super simple. This is a triquetra - interlocking half circles creating a three pointed cross.This symbol has been used over centuries to highlight the specialness of things occurring in threes. Using something symbolic of three seems appropriate considering this year’s round will The the third in the series. I also like how the arms of this cross interlock without end. To me this highlights the durability of friendships made on Steemit. The border of this design has a Celtic vibe to match the cross. The word community under the cross symbolizes that community is the base for success on Steemit.


Everyone on Steemit is invited to create a design for the round!😃

Very thoughtful designs @dfinney
I'm holding back as my version bring too dark, macabre and downright scary. What do you expect from a vampire-ish Goth? "I hear those mourning church bells again." Uh huh, not for the feint of heart, maybe save it for Gothcoin.

·

Whaaat? Goth and scary are awesome on silver! 😍

Cool design ideas @dfinney. If I had to choose, I'd vot for #2 right now... I like the moon reference and the constellations.

·

Thanks @plaid. The time to choose will be here soon. I am excited to see what other designs get submitted.

I know you said you did those from your phone, but they are great designs @dfinney. Looks very professional.

·

Thanks @knowledgeseeker. I loved your constellations 🌌 so was totally inspired by your design!

Great designs d-fin! Right on 😎👍👍

Thanks silverd! ☺️

Phoenix one is awesome! I would go with that! It's my favourite so far!

·

You ar so kind @bengy. Sounds like welshstacker may have a similar idea from his discord coments. 🔥 ☺️

·
·

You were first, so that makes him the plagiarist?

Thanks @pbock! I am fond of that one too. ☺️

All three are cool designs but I think number one has to be my favorite

·

Ahhh thank you!

·
·

Most welcome

These are awesome!! My favorite is definitely the first one but I would be proud to own any of them. The Phoenix rising from the ashes, I love that symbol and what it means. Good Luck babe!! I hope to see one of your designs as the winner!!

·

Awe thanks! 😍 How are you? I have been thinking about you because we have TWO sets of 311 concerts coming up! You are my concert sis in spirit. ☺️🖤

I vote for option 1!!! Love it!!!!

·

😍 Well coming from you that means a lot. You are the Steem Round master! Did you see Welshstacker and independently basically came up with the same idea? 😂🤣

·
·

Haha yep I saw! Love how youve all tapped in to the same theme. Feels like this is the direction this year's coin should go.

All that said, I like your version best!! 🤗🤗

I really like Option 2! I like the little rocket because it reminds me of old cartoons for some reason.

Love the phoenix design, the first steem round was water theme, the second earth and to have a fire related coin for the 3rd would be cool

·

Thank you @russellbury! Did you see welshstacker and independently came up with very similar designs? 😂🤣

Great minds think alike. ☺️
