ARK Christmas Sweepstake 2017

Posted by

Hello Fellow Arkers!

With Christmas just being 20 weeks away, or 145 sleeps away, we thought it might be a good idea to try and do something cool.  So we’ve created an ARK Christmas sweepstake to give three lucky people a festive Christmas bonus!

The idea of the sweepstake is simple, anyone can predict the price of what 1 (one) ARK coin will be on Christmas day. The cost of 1 prediction is 10 ARK.  Whoever predicts closest to the price on Christmas day will receive a nice bag of ARK for their Christmas stocking.

The sweepstake will run from the 7th – 31st of August 2017, entries received either side of these date will not be counted.

A Google sheet will be created with everyone’s predictions.  Check the link at the bottom of this post to view current predictions.

The 10 ARK coin deposited by Slack users will be held in Escrow by Ark’s very own @lars, and will be sent to the winning wallets on Christmas Day.

For transparency the Escrow address is ALdQjDfQyDHQrUm4uf3DjiE4vLn1Hx7yA1

The Rules

Please make sure you read them:
  • The cost of participating in the ARK Christmas Sweepstake is 10 ARK.
  • Each slack user can predict submit one prediction. Your prediction cannot be edited so choose wisely.  
  • Your guess should be no more than two decimal places and your prediction should be in US Dollars only (e.g. $1.02).
  • The Total ARK Received will be distributed to the winners in the following way: –
    • 1st Place – 70%
    • 2nd Place – 20%
    • 3rd Place – 10%
  • Price is to be determined by Slack’s very own Arkbot at 00:00 GMT on the 25th of December.
  • The sweepstake will run from the 7th – 31st of August. Any entries received after this date will be rejected.

Prediction

To make a prediction:
  • Please Direct Message either @pieface & @jamiec79 in ARK Slack.
  • We’ll ask for your prediction in USD ($)
  • We will provide you with the Escrow Ark Sweepstake address for you to send your 10 ARK.  At the same time we will provide you with a randomly generated code to be included with your prediction via the Smartbridge field in the Ark Desktop Wallet.
  • Once your 10ARK are confirmed via the blockchain we will update the shared Google Sheet with your prediction.  For obvious reasons the document will be view only.
  • No two predictions can be the same, we will advise you if you have a duplicated prediction which you can then amend.

  1. What is correct:
    “The sweepstake will run from the 7th – 31st of August 2017, entries received either side of these date will not be counted.”
    OR
    “The sweepstake will run from the 17th – 31st of August. Any entries received after this date will be rejected.”
    ?

    1. Apologies, it should have read, 7th August, we had a last minute change and i didn’t update both sets of date information.

      Thanks for highlighting this 🙂

    1. Poloniex like big volume coins, and they make the final decision on which coins are added to their trading platform. Thank you for the question 🙂
