Read.cash took another exciting initiative and held a competition between its users. Total prize pool was 60$ , Rules were simple the first one who post hash of block 632825 wins 10$ and for winning 50$ procedure was :


"3) Bitcoin Cash blockchain determines the winner
We'll take all the read.cash profile URLs below the correct hash (sorted by "new") and sort them alphabetically.
Let's say there are 12 participants.
We'll take last 6 digits from the block's hash, for example: ...5bd01f
convert it to decimal (Google "0x5bd01f to decimal") = 6017055
take a 6017055 mod number of participants (12) = Google "6017055 mod 12" = 3
So the participant #3 wins.
Note that numbering will start with zero, because "mod" ("remainder") can be zero
Only unique profile links will be considered, so don't post twice."

So I was lucky enough to get on block explorer on block 632824 so I thought I could be the winner of 10$ and luckily only after 2 mins block 632825 was mined so I rush to post the hash. I was confident that I would be the first one to do that. But for my surprise I was the third one to post that hash. So the winner for 10$ prize was ramonoropeza. Congratulations to him.

50$ prize goes to one of my favorite @Telesfor , Congratulations to him for winning this competition.

I really appreciate read.cash for doing this activity and I admire their efforts to continue evolving this platform and making it more beautiful and more engaging for writers as well as readers.

P.S: I am not liking this homepage which they implemented today .

Another thing that happened which made me confused why people downvoted my comment :D ? and made it -1 point .

Joke aside being the member of this community we should support and admire those who are putting their full efforts in making this community great.

I don't know, but it seems like r/btc didn't really enjoy the sweepstakes being there. We thought it would be fun to include more r/btc users, since basically nothing is required to enter the sweepstakes and get $50 in Bitcoin Cash :) but I think we were wrong and r/btc didn't enjoy it. We'll probably hold the next one on read.cash directly.

Just click this thing: https://i.imgur.com/T2EplYx.png

We didn't implement it today, we just changed the default. It's up to you to select the layout you want to see.

Thank you. Maybe you can make default the blocks one, I think it has better UI so new users can feel comfortable. Just an opinion

First contest I've read about on here, but I am only newly active on the side. I am enjoying read.cash more and more each day, and hopefully, I will be able to participate in one of these contests soon instead of reading about it later!
