The Jackpot rolls over to May… $1,500 has to go!
April was another outstanding month for Skycoin Rewards. The quality and quantity of content from the Skyfleet continues to amaze! There’s plenty more to come in future months, we’re only just getting started.
For April’s awards show results, scroll down to the results section of this article (near the bottom). Under that, you’ll also find some promotions for May which will help to maximize your ticket earning potential for the month ahead.
Let’s get into the craziness that was April!

The list goes on and our ranks continue to grow exponentially! I’m excited to see how SRP matures and grows over the next 6 months and have started to track all the statistics to see just how much of an impact we’re really having!
Because this wasn’t a live-stream there were no spot prizes, the jackpot wasn’t won either, so that makes Aprils prize pool of $1,500. (-$500 for jackpot roll-over) The pool is distributed evenly to the Shark and Dolphin prizes ($750 each)
- Trophy (50 Skycred): Won 18 times
- 250 Skycred: Won 15 times
- Dolphin: Won 12 times ($62.5 per prize)
- Shark: Won 5 times ($150 per prize)
All monitory rewards will be paid out in Skycoin. We will aim to have the prizes distributed before the 15th of May.
2x Dolphin ($125 USD)
6x250 Skycred (1,500 Skycred)

Congratulations to our winners for April. It’s clear that some of you are submitting massive amounts of content and reaping the rewards. As we look to scale we will scale and tweak the system to accommodate and fairly compensate everyone involved.
May SRP Update:
We’ve added two new SRP submission options for May and are running a temporary graphic design opportunity.
Your new options are:
- 3D printing designs: 3D prints must be Skycoin relevant (with name or logo ect.). They can be reworks. All submissions MUST be added to the Skycoin Thingiverse and then submit the link in the SRP room. Prints are worth a max of 20 tickets per submission. Join this room to get started.
- CX Labs submissions: 20 tickets will be awarded to submissions that qualify and don’t win the 1st or 2nd prize. For more info about CX Labs, check out this article.
CX Labs graphics competition.
We’re looking for infographics, attention-grabbing graphics, posters, quotes etc. No set design guidelines apart from following Skycoin design guidelines.
1st: 700 SkyCred (70 tickets)
2nd: 400 SkyCred (40 tickets)
3rd: 200 SkyCred (20 tickets)
Acceptable submissions up to 10 tickets.
Post the graphic on Twitter with #CXLabs and /submit the twitter link in the SRP room to enter. Use these articles, here and here and the CX Labs Telegram for inspiration. End date for this is 17/05/19 at 12pm ICT
Double Points/May Promotions
