The World Cup 2022 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.
It only takes place every 4 years and 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.
Therefore, the @hivebuzz team has prepared a fun contest that will last for the whole duration of the World Cup and will allow you to collect badges and maybe win some HIVE or other prizes!
The contest 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 2022 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 2022 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 need to register for the contest by sending 1 HIVE to @hivebuzz.pool with the memo
This is a one-time registration to avoid the contest being screwed up by bots. 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 enter the competition at any time and the sooner you register and play the more chances you have of winning a bigger prize.
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 like:
- 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 any of the above-mentioned comments 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 Qatar vs Ecuador is scheduled 2022-11-20 at 16:00 UTC time
On 2022-11-19 at 16:00 UTC, @hivebuzz will unlock the badge on your board and publish a post “World Cup Contest - Qatar vs Ecuador” with 3 comments:
“QAT - Qatar win”
“ECU - Ecuador win”
“TIE - no winner”
If you think Qatar will win, upvote the first comment.
If you think Ecuador will win, upvote the second comment.
If you think the result will be a tie, upvote the last comment.
Each time you successfully guessed a match result, the related badge on your board will light up!
What reward can you receive?
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 are the winners determined?
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.
If there is still a tie after applying the previous rule, the guess time (upvote) of the players will decide, the winner being the first to have made their guess (upvote).
