    Gumby's Crypto Investment Challenge - Official Entries Thread

    GumbyNoTalent's most excellent fun challenge idea is almost set to go ahead, with the format and starting date to be finalised over the NXT next week or less (on or before Saturday 20 January 2018).

    -------

    This is the official thread for entries only.

    At this stage, please post only once in this thread, to get yourself added to the Participants List.

    Getting yourself on the Participants List implies no obligation on your part - naturally, if you decide not to take part, or to pull out at any stage, then that's perfectly fine. However, if you are NOT on the Participants List on the date when the Challenge officially starts (to be determined, but on or before next Saturday 20th), then you won't be eligible for judging. This respects a level playing field for all.

    For the sake of organisation, please chat in the other thread.

    -------

    HOW TO TAKE PART

    Post once in this thread, right now, to get added to the Participants List. Keep watching this post. Further information will become available in the coming days. The latest starting date will be next Saturday 20th Jan, so check back here at least every day!

    [[ SIMPLIFIED RULES AND GUIDELINES WILL BE ASSEMBLED HERE OVER THE COMING DAYS ]]

    Monday 15th January comment: The latest plan is to have the rules finalised by Thursday 18th, and for the starting date to be Saturday 20th.

    Wednesday 17th January comment: Confirming that the rules will be finalised by midnight Thursday 18th. The crypto amounts to start with will be published midnight at the end of Friday 19th, with the starting date being then immediate - Saturday 20th at 00:00 AEDT. The amount involved is likely to be the rough equivalent of 50 AUD, in specified cryptos.


    -------

    HOW IT WILL BE JUDGED

    Upon the conclusion of the challenge (at the finish date to be determined), a set of 3 judges will carry out any necessary verification, and reach unanimous agreement before releasing a final decision upon the placings. The top three place winners will be required to undergo detailed verification by the judges using a method to be revealed at the time (so that nobody can easily "prepare" for it), however under no circumstances will anybody ever be required to reveal any kind of login credentials.

    Respected member DarkStyle has nominated as the judges: myself, Koss, and GumbyNoTalent.
    For any objections or comments regarding this, please post in the other thread.

    Sorry everyone, you'll all have to settle for the minor placings, I've got this.

    PS: My intention still stands, if I do win funds will be pooled and we all vote for a coin to dump into and check back on it in say 12/24 months and split what's there evenly amongst the participants.
