Congratulations CoinParty and Bitcoin Unlimited and everyone who made their flipstarter a success!

This is the drawing thread for the 5 BCH lottery announced here (see that link for the rules and how the drawing is done).

There were 152 total pledges, and each valid pledge 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 draw were 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.

Had to add some distinguishing information to a couple of Anonymous donations. You can see which ones they are by the amounts / SLP address or the #1 / #2 which refers to their position in the archived final pledge list.

Also had to eliminate my own two pledges (them's the rules):

btcfork "spend and replace"

Play the 5 BCH lottery! ""

That leaves 150 entrants, here is the numbered list, sorted according to the rules (we number it from 0 ... 149 due to the way we pick the winner).

The decisive block

The flipstarter's funding transaction, 002e20d1bc9077bfca7b7e807cefa56d265046b5f2ac775f5ef70611371ad94e, was confirmed in block 663207 which has the hash:


As we have 152 entrants, we need to use the last 8 bits, i.e. last two hexadecimal digits which are 0x16 which is 22 in decimal. So our lucky winner (1st drawing) is...



Please get in touch in the comments below, or on Twitter/Memo, to provide the receiving bitcoincash: address for the 5 BCH prize.

EDIT: he got in touch and collected the prize

Consolation prize of 0.1 BCH for funniest comment

This category is obviously subjective, and there were some good entries, but ultimately this won it:

p0oker "BCHA is the best SoV"

Well, that's it for this lottery. To all who participated, thanks.

Special thanks to all those who pushed it significantly towards completion in the last few days.

Now, have a good party, and see you on another flipstarter lottery sometime!

If instead of trolling, you provide some content of real value, then you can very likely earn many more bits.
