You still have time! Join the @blocktrades World Cup and win 2,000 SBD in prizes

Already more 1,200 entries from 1,200 different Steemians and you still have one week to submit your entry!

This is probably the contest with the highest number of participants in the history of Steemit... how awesome is that?

The previous announcement post already paid out and it can´t be resteemed anymore. Since we want EVERYONE on Steemit to join this contest and one of the rules for joining the @blocktrades Cup is resteeming the announcement post, we decided to make a new announcement.


@blocktrades loves to sponsor this type of community engaging projects and @anomadsoul & @acidyo know a lot of Steemians love this game, so we decided to organize this enormous Football World Cup event.

You don´t have to be a professional analyst of the game, your national team doesn´t have to participate, you don´t need to know much about Football to join...

All you need to do is write a post picking every match winner and, the Steemian who makes the most points, wins.

As simple as that

Hey @anomadsoul, I want a piece of those 2,000 SBD, how do I join?

It´s very easy: In the world cup there are two stages, The Group Stage and The Knockout Stage.

@worldcup-russia Is my entry valid? I edit my post because I didn't copy/paste Score Team Team Score above list of matches, so my post didn't look right. Once I edited, it look ok. Is my entry valid? Thanks.

Hi, I created analysis of most posts that will help others to guess right winner of most matches. E.g. Uruguay's chances to beat Russia are 52% to 20 % for losing according to Steemit users.

ahh too bad I can't join since I'm kinda newish here...this looks like fun :)

Argentina are always claiming to be the champions of the World Cup, captain Messi.

The two world champions in the Latin America World Cup qualify once in a row. In the last match, Messi's extraordinary hat-trick took Argentina out of the main event by eliminating Ecuador. On the main stage, everyone will give their best, believe Messi

"We have all the great players. It's not about how Argentine teams always claim to win the World Cup. "

My reputation is only 25, so I guess I'm not eligible...

Thank you for the opportunity to participate!
May the best Team and Steem(ian) win!

Here are my picks

I was just thinking with a few of these posts the total revenue will be above 2,000 SBD. What will happen with the revenue of these posts (this Steemit account)?

Will it be a reward for the owner of this account and all the effort put in to the organization? To cover expenses for something like a coder to stake the data and build an automated model?
Or will it be added to the prize pool?

2000 SBD !!!! It's like 3.4k$

Thanks You
