Winners — Get Minted NFT Contest with Popcorn DAO

Today we are excited to announce the winners of the Get Minted NFT contest produced in collaboration with Popcorn. As a refresher the theme of this NFT contest was Popcorn Saves the Planet. Artists were tasked to create original artwork in this theme and submit it either through Twitter or through an online intake form.

In this post we will cover:

  1. Vote tally
  2. Winners of the 9000 $POP rewards (artists)
  3. Winners of the 1000 $POP rewards ($BLES stakers / voters)

Without further delay, here are the final vote results.

Final vote tally: ties all around

After all the votes were counted we found there to be multiple choices that received identical numbers of votes. The breakdown was as follows:

Entry B — 27.3%

Entry E — 27.3%

Entry A — 15.2%

Entry C — 15.2%

Entry D — 15.2%

Prize distribution

As the above tally shows, we have a two-way tie for 1st place and a three-way tie for 3rd place. We considered numerous solutions to this, including holding a tie-breaker vote on Twitter. However, the key issue with that plan is that we would run the risk of arriving at yet another tie.

Instead, we will do the following:

  • Split the first place prize pool (6,500 $POP) between Entry B and Entry E
  • Fold the original 2nd place prize pool (1,500 $POP) in the original 3rd place prize pool (1,000 $POP) to create a proforma 3rd place pool (2,500 $POP)
  • Split the proforma 3rd place pool between Entry A, Entry C, Entry D

1st place winners:

Entry E — @sereniffty
Entry B — Anonymous

3rd place winners

Entry A — @fundraisingInn1
Entry C — @intuition__lab
Entry D — Anonymous

$BLES and $POP rewards to Voters

To increase the fun and participation we created two separate pools, especially for voters. These $POP and $BLES rewards will be distributed by Popcorn and Blind Boxes respectively.

  • 1000 $POP will be distributed to ten randomly selected voters that are staking $BLES
  • 50% staking bonus will be distributed to all BLES stakers that participated

The following ten staking addresses will split 1000 $POP. These addresses were selected using an online randomizer. The drawing can be viewed at anytime here:

About Popcorn

Popcorn is a new eco-friendly paradigm for DeFi, where users can earn high yield on their cryptoassets while creating real world impact. Protocol fees are distributed not only to POP Token holders, but to impact initiatives selected by the community.

The amount of wealth created in DeFi within 1 year is staggering. Surprisingly, there are close to zero protocols that allocate a percentage of revenue towards social impact. Blue chip centralized exchanges such as Binance and FTX donate to charitable organizations, however total earmarked funds thus far are microscopic compared to the $ billions in daily volume.

Smart contracts present the opportunity to bake social good into DeFi by contributing a substantial percentage of fees to create impact. This is why we created Popcorn. We believe in doing good with DeFi.
