The competition has a $10 participation fee and a $100 reward for the winner. If you stake $10, and you rank 1st; you win $100 (10x your investment), 2nd place wins you $50. People get paid based on their risk taking ability (stake) + intelligence (rank).

IOLOGICS

Most people post a review of a restaurant after a bad night: Positive or neutral experiences are often overlooked, and people don’t get incentivized to share them. Plus, how do you make sure a review is genuine? IOLogics wants to let users earn tokens in exchange for posting reviews. Their Branded Tokens can then be redeemed at participating restaurants.
