The Stellar Content Battle is a community-driven (and funded) contest. Content writers are asked to write content on a specific subject. The best submissions win (part) of the community-funded prize pool. Read more here.

It is very special that the first Battle reached a total prize pool of 2073 XLM, with 5 excellent submissions! Thank you to everyone who was involved!

The First Battle

The first subject to write about was: “How to use Keybase to send Value”?

A total of 5 writers submitted an article. Through a community voting round the winner was picked. A total of 23 million photons (Stellar Reddit community points) were used to determine the winner(s).

The winners

#1 u/anzqa |35.6% of votes | 738 XLM

All winners just received their winnings through Keybase (if you did not prove your Reddit account, please do so to claim the prize).


The next round

The next round of the content battle will start soon. It will be a three-step process:

  1. A voting round on the subject
  2. Prize pool funding opens for the community
  3. A voting round on the submitted articles

In the keybase group “Contentbattle” we will determine a set of possible subjects, which will be voted on on the Stellar sub-Reddit. If you have good ideas for content, or want to contribute in the brainstorm, please join the group.

If you are a company building on Stellar and want to sponsor a contest, please get in touch too!
