ARK Community Christmas Sweepstake 2018

Sep 2, 2018 · 3 min read

Christmas is now just 17 weeks away, so it seems a good time to start the annual Christmas sweepstake after a very successful event last year. A total of 1811 ARK was given to 3 lucky winners last Christmas, I hope we can exceed that figure this year!

The idea of the sweepstake is simple, anyone can predict the price of what 1 (one) ARK coin will be on Christmas day. The cost of 1 prediction is 5ARK. Whoever predicts closest to the price on Christmas day will receive a nice bag of ARK for their Christmas stocking.

The sweepstake will run from the 4th — 30th of September 2018, entries received either side of these date will not be counted.

A Google sheet will be created with everyone’s predictions. Check the link at the bottom of this post to view current predictions.

The 5 ARK coin deposited by Slack users will be held in Escrow by ARK’s very own @lars, and will be sent to the winning wallets on Christmas Day.

For transparency the Escrow address is AVUdzoVh5yRqg3ph9iytpAJnnHiZXx4R5u

The Rules

Please make sure you read them:

  • The cost of participating in the ARK Christmas Sweepstake is 5 ARK.
  • Each slack user can predict submit one prediction. Your prediction cannot be edited so choose wisely.
  • Your guess should be no more than two decimal places and your prediction should be in US Dollars only (e.g. $1.02).
  • The Total ARK Received will be distributed to the winners in the following way: –
  • 1st Place — 70%
  • 2nd Place — 20%
  • 3rd Place — 10%
  • Price is to be determined by Slack’s very own Arkbot at 00:00 GMT on the 25th of December.
  • The sweepstake will run from the 4th — 30th of September. Any entries received after this date will be rejected.


To make a prediction:

  • Please Direct Message @pieface in ARK Slack or Discord
  • I’ll ask for your prediction in USD ($)
  • I will provide you with the Escrow ARK Sweepstake address for you to send your 5 ARK. At the same time we will provide you with a randomly generated code to be included with your prediction via the Smartbridge field in the ARK Desktop Wallet.
  • Once your 5 ARK are confirmed via the blockchain we will update the shared Google Sheet with your prediction. For obvious reasons the document will be view only.
  • No two predictions can be the same, we will advise you if you have a duplicated prediction which you can then amend.
