HiveBuzz Women's World Cup Contest - Collect Badges and Prizes - Thousands of HIVE, Tokens or NFTs to be won!
The Women's World Cup 2023 will kick off soon!
The World Cup is a global event that brings together people from all over the world around a sporting competition well known to all.
We believe that women also play an essential role both in real life and in the Hive ecosystem. Therefore we wanted to give them as much importance in this event as we did for the men's world cup in 2022.
We didn't want to miss the opportunity to have fun all together by organizing our own competition in which all members of the community can participate.
This competition is likely to be as fun as last year's men's edition, if not more. Indeed, the teams and players are much less known to the masses and it will be much more difficult to anticipate the results of the matches. We can therefore expect to see a lot of upheaval in the rankings during the competition.
The contest will last for the whole duration of the world cup (one full month) and will allow you to collect badges and maybe win some HIVE!
It is open to everyone, whether you're a football fan or not, and we've made the entry process and rules as simple as possible.
Check the Word Cup 2023 tab on your board
Go to HiveBuzz website and type your name to access your board.
You will notice there is a new Word Cup 2023 tab which contains a badge for each match of the competition.
Your goal is to collect as many badges as possible among the 64 available!
How to participate?
1. Register for the contest
You can Register for the contest by sending 1 HIVE to @hivebuzz.pool with the memo “worldcup2023”.
If Keychain Mobile is installed on your smartphone, an easy way to do this is to scan the following QR code:
This is a one-time registration and it will be added to the prize pool so you might get it back at the end of the contest if you are lucky or smart enough.
You can join the contest at any time, but the sooner you get in, the more chances you have to win the bigger prizes.
2. Make your bet for each match
Each World Cup game is represented by a badge on your board. You can click on it to see information about the match, including when it starts.
Note the presence of the red lock which indicates that bets for this match are not yet open. @hivebuzz will publish a post for each match and unlock the badge 24 hours before the match begins.
From this moment, bets will be open and you can place yours.
Under each post, @hivebuzz will create up to 3 comments:
- Team A win
- Team B win
PS: The 3rd comment (TIE) will only be present during the group phase.
What you need to do is to cast a vote on the comment that corresponds to the result you expect for the match.
Replying to the comment made by @hivebuzz will be considered a fault. You will receive a red card (downvote) and you will be excluded from the match, meaning you will not get your badge!
The match New Zealand vs Norway is scheduled for 2023-07-20 at 07:00 UTC
On 2023-07-19 at 07:00 UTC, i.e. 24 hours before the match begins, @hivebuzz will unlock the badge on your board and publish a new post titled “World Cup Contest - New Zealand vs Norway” with 3 comments:
“NZL - New Zealand win”
“NOR - Norway win”
“TIE - no winner”
If you think New Zealand will win, upvote the first comment.
If you think Norway will win, upvote the second comment.
If you think the result will be a tie, upvote the last comment.
Your bets are made, all you have to do now is wait for the result of the match.
Each time you successfully guessed a match result, the related badge on your board will light up!
What prizes can you win?
The prize pool will be split among participants using the following rules:
1st place: 20% of the prize pool
2nd place: 10% of the prize pool
3rd place: 5% of the prize pool
The rest of the prize pool will be distributed among all the participants in proportion to the number of badges they collected and the total of successful bets from the participants.
All participants (except the first 3 winners) collected 1000 badges
You have successfully guessed 34 match results.
You will receive 34/1000th of the rest of the prize pool.
How to win the contest?
When the competition is over, we will count the number of badges collected by each participant. The more badges you have collected, the higher your place in the ranking.
In the event of a tie between the top players, the winner will be the one who first collected all his badges. This means that badges obtained during the group stage will weigh more than those in the final.
- Player A collected 10 badges during the group phase
- Player B collected 9 badges during the group phase and 1 for the final
Therefore Player A will be the winner.
In the event of a tie between participants, the one who has been the fastest throughout the competition will thus have the advantage over his competitor.
Fastest bettors always take advantage
To reward those who take the most risk when betting, we have added a parameter for our ranking.
If there is still a tie after applying the previous rule, the bet time (upvote) of the participant will decide, the winner being the fastest to have placed their bets (upvotes).
For this, a counter will be activated as soon as bets are open for a match. Each time you make a bet, the number of seconds elapsed will be added to your count.
|Participant||match 1||match 2||...||Total||Rank|
In the above table, you can see that Alice made her bet for match 1 only 60s after bets were open. Bob placed his bet 120s after the betting opened.
However, Alice trailed a lot for match 2. Fatal laziness as Bob was much faster this time.
Although they both bet correctly for both matches, Bob will rank higher as he was overall a faster bettor.
