I’m not sure how popular or rare these are, but I do know that people ask for them with some regularity on forums, Twitter, and Reddit. Ergo, I figured that there will be enough demand to have a little fun giving them away. If there isn’t, well, it’ll just be easy for you to win. As a way to sweeten the contest beyond just the Coinsetter codes, I’m also giving away .1 BTC each to what I consider the three best answers. Read on to find out how to enter.
I got in touch with Coinsetter awhile ago and asked them for a beta key. They kindly sent me 5. I used one for myself and looked around their platform. It’s pretty cool, and I like what they’re doing. I think many of my readers would also like to give them a spin.
Anyway, they told me to do whatever I wanted with them. I gave one to my friend and trading associate Dominic Williams. That left me 3, which isn’t quite enough to do a giveaway with, and I didn’t know anyone else that wanted one. So I held off for a bit.
Then they sent me 5 more! I’d signed up to be included in their beta before I contacted them, and whoops, they added me. So now I have 8. (I HAD 8 before I started the contest. Thanks to a contribution of additional keys from Yo Sub Kwon, Coinsetter co-founder, I now have 23.) And I had to come up with a good way to give them away, so I’m running a contest in honor of the two great deities of cryptotrading, Karhu and WhaleGod.
I sort of just made that second one up earlier today, but whatever.
Enter to Win a Coinsetter Beta Code from TheBlogChain:
- Compose a clever Tweet. It should be funny, and it can be a little offensive, but don’t get too crazy. I’ll disqualify anything I think a significant number of people would find offensive. No swears, slurs, etc.
- Add either #Karhu or #WhaleGod. Karhu lowers prices, WhaleGod brings the tide that raises them.
- Add the current Bitstamp ticker price according to BitcoinWisdom. Feel free to round–if it says 626.34 and you write 627 I won’t care. Be as close to accurate as possible.
- No cheating
- The earliest entry wins if multiple entries are too similar.
- Entries accepted until 11PM EST 3/21/14
3 of the keys will be given to my favorite three “prayer” Tweets to Karhu and WhaleGod, regardless of correctness of call. These 3 winners will also each receive .1 BTC.
The other 20 keys will be given to 20 random people who requested the intercession of the correct deity. If you call on #Karhu and the price at midnight EST on 3/21/14 is lower than when you sent your Tweet, you get entered in that drawing. If you call on #WhaleGod and the price at midnight EST on 3/21/14 is higher than when you sent your tweet, you get entered. Guess the price movement correctly and get a chance to win. If you don’t enter a Bitstamp price, you can’t win one of these 20 keys, but you can still win the other 3 and a share of the .3BTC.
Or make me laugh and win. They both work.
If you don’t want to craft a clever intercessory Tweet, you can still enter for a chance to win with the most barebones Tweet by just writing:
#(deity) (Bitstamp Price)
Contest ends at Midnight EST on 3/21/14. You may not enter after 11PM EST on 3/21/14. One entry per person.
I’ll be checking the Bitstamp closing price for 3/21/14 when judging winners/losers. Beta codes will be distributed via Twitter direct message–follow me if you want to get them quickly.
Have fun! I hope to see some clever tweets from those of you who twat.
Special thanks to Yo Sub Kwon of Coinsetter for adding keys to the contest!
