Congratulations Joey B. Wong and the flipstarter team behind The Sphere.

This is the drawing thread for the 1 BCH lottery announced here (see that link for the rules and how the drawing is done).

There were 58 pledges, and each of them gets an equal chance of winning. It's all provably fair because the rules are published in advance and the winner is picked in a deterministic manner based on the hashes of blocks on the Bitcoin Cash chain.

The funds for this lottery winner are still on the address announced in the proof-of-funds post.

The Entrants

I've made archived posts of the completed flipstarter, so you can see I'm not leaving anyone out who pledged.

Since there were some "Anonymous" entrants with the same amount, I've had to give their tickets some more identifying information (so I wrote "the first" if it was the first with that name when read from top down in the final list on the site).

Here is the numbered list (we number it from 0 ... 57 due to the way we pick the winner).

     0	Anonymous (0.06 BCH the first)
     1	Anonymous (0.06 BCH the second) "simpleledger:qqsnhyuyenk2jytqmxmed78nlc34kzsa4vnx9ugn7d"
     2	Anonymous 0.04 BCH "simpleledger:qpr4maq6dgeuasr0r7rwawggm0lwk3yzmq4xvsusww"

The Hash of the Block that confirmed the Flipstarter

... is found by looking up the transaction that was produced to pay out the flipstarter, which was transaction b241375ee4461586e3f41fd6c1727c65eed4ff5a17a6edd8a31eae7bc1e41a31

in block 660673

which has the hash:

0000000000000000022727ba0877493e07a5c93b056000a02f556782ac9a7546

We have more than 32 entrants this time, but not quite 64.

So the last 6 bits of the hash will be enough. They are:

000110

which in decimal is 6, which gives us our lucky winner:

Colibri from mars!

Please get in touch, Colibri from mars. Thanks for donating to the flipstarter (I think you did so before this lottery was announced).

However, to make sure I don't pay out to the wrong person, I'm going to need to vet that you're really the deserving winner, which means I will need some proof that you are Colibri from mars.

It's quite likely the only way I'll be able to do that, is through proof that you control the input address to the pledge you made to the flipstarter. One easy way for you to show that to me, is to sign any message with that address qqsu6674yrd9fm8y36yek0gvgghpafwzd5dueyd2mg which funded the 1.57 BCH that you contributed. (ref. https://blockchair.com/bitcoin-cash/address/qqsu6674yrd9fm8y36yek0gvgghpafwzd5dueyd2mg)

Hint: you can use Electron Cash's 'Tools -> Sign/Verify Message..' menu option to sign some text like "This is Colibri from mars, collecting the 1 BCH prize" or something.

Your winnings await!


Note: If I can't get a hold of Colibri within 5 days after announcing the winner on various social media, I'll have to proceed according to section 3.4 of the Rules to choose another winner.
