What exactly is the Steem Round?


The Steem Round is a 1oz, .9999 fine silver, limited mintage coin. It has been produced each year by the Steem Silver Gold (SSG) Community to promote Steem, celebrate all of the platform's communities and to showcase SSG's passion - buying silver and gold as a means to hold and accumulate wealth. 2019 marks the third year of the round!

How can you win the 2019 round?


Community is the name of the game. We would like YOU to nominate ONE PERSON who you believe exemplifies the BEST of the Steem blockchain. Tell us what makes this person special to you and why you believe they deserve a 2019 Steem Round. Are they generous? Do their posts inspire you to stay on the blockchain? Did they get you an account on Steem or did their actions impact you in a very special way? Tell us their story and YOU and YOUR NOMINEE will be entered for a chance to win!

WHO ARE OUR JUDGES?


@soyrosa is living in The Netherlands and on Steem - as a photographer and traveler and behavioral scientist there's always something to write about. Actually, blogging has been part of her life before 'paid blogging' and Steem even existed. She loves to read about people's lives: there’s content that anyone could’ve written, but your life’s story… That one is only yours. She's a true newbie silver stacker who got introduced to it by @silversaver888. That's also how she got to know the Steem Silver Gold Community as a very passionate group of people who engage a lot with each other - now let's try to get more people to know them!

@newageinv has been a part of the Steem community since December 2017 when he joined as part of his passion to learn and engage regarding investing and cryptocurrencies. Despite a career in the financial sector, technology has always been an important part of the journey as discovering bitcoin led to a slippery slope down the rabbit hole of decentralization and disruptive technology. After becoming a Minnow during the first year, the journey has gotten even better as the involvement in many Steem related projects has engaged him with many community members that demonstrate the greatness of this ecosystem. Interest in precious metals came as part of following the great community of Numismatic interest here in the platform as well!

@dfinney is one of the moderators for Steem Silver Gold (SSG). In this role, she tracks the community's membership list and is one of a small contingency who approves all new nominees to the group. @dfinney started coin collecting at the same time she joined Steemit - just two short years ago. For her, the friendships and connections made on Steem are the BEST parts of the blockchain. She is passionate about travel, music, ALL the holidays (especially Christmas), and her two little dachshunds, Jasper and Kodi.

Judges are ineligible to enter/win this contest.

2019 Steem Silver Rounds are currently on sale HERE.

Only 1500 rounds will be minted. Each round costs $24.50 USD excluding shipping. Payment may be made via PayPal, Steem or a selection of other crypto currencies.

Don't miss out on your chance to HOLD Steem history in your own two hands!


Special thanks to @smooth for sponsoring this contest, and to @sevinwilson for being the brainchild behind the initial creation of the Steem Silver Round.


Thanks also to @raybrockman for organizing everything related to the creation, sale and distribution of this year's round. We at Steem Silver Gold are so grateful for all that you do!


EDIT - IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Please note: It has come to our attention that some countries do not allow the import of precious metals (including silver). Please be aware of the rules and regulations of your own country. An alternate prize is NOT available should you live in one of these nations. Please also note that any duties that may be collected by customs are the responsibility of prize recipients. Thank you.


Keep on Steeming!

I'd recommend @zekepickleman.. he's a Canadian but don't hold that against him. He's very active on the blockchain always posting quality content.. usually about beer.. he actively engages with other steemians and has participated in every #spud showing his dedication to the long term growth for the STEEM token. He is active in several tribes.. plus he was gracious enough to bless me with 20 STEEM just for being a Vikings fan..

Damn Canadians...

Sounds like a great Steemian! You have to follow the rules (a comment alone is not enough to enter) to be considered for the Steem ROUND for both you and Zeke :-) Good luck!

I hate being a rule breaker.. I should have picked the screen name @blacksheep !tip

I was getting ready to go to work when I read the post. I must admit that I was in such a hurry that I did not read the rules. I quickly generated the reply, hit the post button, and rushed out the door to work.

I will put a post together tonight.

Thanks!!

Steem on,

@SILVERSAVER888



...and here is why!
She was a great advocate for Stacking well before she came to Steem, as her youtube channel attests. She has brought many into Stacking, which is preserving one's Wealth against all manner of economic disruption. It is very prudent and smart, plus she does it in a way that bolsters #SSG which is Steem's PREMIER Wealth Preservation Community ❣ @SILVERSAVER888 has also given away much stack, not only as prizes but as starters to new stackers. She has also inspired many of us to greater dedication, I know her tutelage has helped me tremendously! If a young, well-to-do and beautiful Shoe Addict can reform her ways and SAVE in PMs, then I can too! I know SADIE a bit better than most, and she has a very good heart for people, nit just Stackers! STEEM is the perfect platform for her to be using and STEEM is better for her presence.

I could go on and on... 👍

@underground. Gotta write a 500 word post and leave the link here. There is a section in the post with the rules. ☺️🤗

I am nominating @snook. You can read all about it here:
