$1,000 Bitcoin prize for the most appreciated post on this forum

Wed Sep 23, 2015 9:33 am

In order to attract more users, and quality posts to this forum, I'm glad to offer 4 BTC, or $1,000 USD in bitcoin, whichever is more, prize to the user who makes the most appreciated post on this forum.

Satoshi Labs has stepped up to offer a free Trezor to the winner as well!
In this post, Bit-X, has agreed to include a free Bit-X credit card valued at $99.95

The submission deadline will be whenever this forum reaches 10,000 human registered users, or, so long as the forum has at least 5,000 registered human users, Jan 1st, 2016, whichever comes sooner.

At that time, we will start a thread where people can nominate posts for the prize.
After two weeks for nomination submissions, the polling will begin, and be open for two weeks.
Forum members that registered before the deadline will be allowed to vote for which post was the most appreciated.

At the conclusion of the two weeks:
4 BTC or $1,000 USD in bitcoin, whichever is more, plus a Trezor, and a Bit-X card, and a T-shirt, will be paid to the author of the most appreciated post.

Some examples of posts that I already appreciate on this forum are:

beginners-help/documentaries-on-bitcoin ... -t246.html
beginners-help/overview-bitcoin-hardwar ... -t200.html
bitcoin-discussion/i-m-charlie-shrem-bi ... -t239.html
readings/huge-list-of-free-cypherpunk-c ... -t233.html

So now is your chance to write interesting things about Bitcoin, contribute to the Bitcoin community, and have a chance to win $1000 all at the same time!
Be sure to tell all your friends to make sure we can hit 10,000 users quickly!

The whole community will get to vote for which post they appreciate the most, so we have at least 3 months to go still.
This is far from a done deal.
Welcome to the forum, and start sharing some interesting content!

This $1000 usd in bitcoin prize sounds like a great incentive to bring more members to this forum.

I seen a link to this forum in a post on bitcointalk so came and signed up, looks good so far, i really like the news section and i wont lie, i could sure do with 1k worth of BTC, beats the hell out of faucets and signature campaigns.
Good luck to all!

By popular demand, I have now denominated the prize in terms of bitcoin.
The prize will be 4 BTC, or $1,000 USD worth of bitcoin, whichever is more at the time of the payment.

I updated the original post to reflect this as well.

Please help spread the word!
I think there is a good chance we can have more than 1,000 users by the end of the month!

Hi there! So I want to take home the prize. :D

Fwiw, unlike Twitter where my alter ego Bitcoin Belle runs amok, I am committed to behaving so well on here. There should probably be a separate award for that!

May the best bitcoiner win! <3

Good Morning Roger,

I know i will never win this competition because i am not very good with my words, but Ill give it a go anyway. Honestly, what I love about bitcoin is that it could finally end the era of debt spending. Debt spending is the root of theift from every individual both today and tomorrows generations, Wars all over the planet, welfare that disincentives individuals to innovate and invent. Deficit spending has transferred wealth out of the hands of hard working people all over the planet; it is the root of all that is wrong with this world. However, Bitcoin for the first time in human history gives us all hope, hope to recreate our future, where free human beings interact with each other voluntarily. Harmony of individuals choosing what is right for them, with out another individual intervening and throwing them into a cage. A future where we are tolerant of others and we all respect each other as individuals able to govern ourselves. Where peace is talked about all the time on the news, where we highlight what we do good among ourselves. A future where the love of humanity preserves.

and as always,

For Liberty,

Charles

We need another forum because the only two news sources are controlled by one guy. This cant be a good thing.

Welcome by the way ;)

The only real thing that I really miss is the reputation of the users, and I don't mean about to be Legendary or not, I mean about the reputation saying a user is a scammer. I've seen the spanish forum, two posts, and one is from a known scammer trying to restart its reputation.

Please save the 1000 prize (even if I need money, as everybody) and create a reputation profile on this forum too.

$1000 is a lot of money. If I should win this price I would share it with the last 5 people who registered here at this forum at that time.
Shouldn't be a problem to find out who this guys would be then.
You might call me crazy why I would do that. I just say...why not?! ;)
