Whaleshares Fueled Cooking Challenge. Great Things Inside

in #whaleshares3 years ago (edited)


The Whaleshares chain is launching on September 1st and everyone in the community couldn't be happier about it. To celebrate we're launching several contests and challenges here on Steemit and rewarding the lucky winners with awesome prizes.

The original idea to run these contests belongs to @seveaux as far as I'm aware, he's a long term member of Steemit, Whaleshares Discord and one of the early testers of the new Whaleshares chain. I thought it was a great initiative on his part and volunteered to start this cooking challenge.


Now get in your kitchen and let the Whaleshares inspire you! You can either cook a dish or a drink, it can be absolutely anything at all. Extra points for those who actually fries up some whales, just kidding!

The point is to be creative and being able to describe how exactly Whaleshares encouraged you to make a certain meal or made you feel crave something in particular. I want it to be pretty versatile, without many restrictions, although there are some rules.

The rules of the cooking contest:

  • it is preferred that only Steemians without an account on Whaleshares take part in this challenge;
  • the food must be prepared by you;
  • you must use your own pictures;
  • you must upvote and share this post on your page;
  • you must have a BTS wallet to claim your prize;
  • you must post the link to your entry in the comment section of this post along with your BTS wallet name;
  • you must use a verification sign with your Steemit username written on it.

Now, as far as tags go, I am not going to limit your imagination haha, just use appropriate tags. It will be a one time contest.
If you violate any of these little rules, your entry will be disqualified, sorry!


The contest starts right now and ends on Tuesday, August 21st, 12 AM EST. No entries will be accepted after that time.


Get excited because we have some amazing prizes for you. There will be 2 winners and both of them will be awarded 250 whaleshare each which they can use to get an early access to the Whaleshares chain and put towards account creating fees, how awesome is that?!
These amazing prizes would not be possible without the core community member (and a Whaleshares witness) @krazykrista that kindly agreed to sponsor this cooking challenge. Thank you, Krista! 💖

The winners will be decided the day the contest ends which is sometime on August 21st and will be announced on my blog.
The challenge judges are @krazykrista, myself and @seveaux. Basically, what we're looking for in a great entry is creativity, fun and good food :).
Yes, the picks will be subjective.

Whale status depends on the amount of vests, not reputation. Check out @arcange stats for more info.
