A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.
Hey Bitcoiners! Know someone who can paint/draw/photoshop really well? Better yet, is that somebody you
? Whoever it is, they may have a chance at getting Magic Internet Money from a stranger! I pledge to spend 1.24 btc on this contest, 1 btc of which I'll send to the first place winner.
The winner can be a group or an individual!
Here's the prompt: Create an epic picture of The Bitcoin Wizard.
as an inspiration if you want, but as long as the picture features some version of a Bitcoin Wizard
who is epic
, the entry qualifies. I'm not looking to "upgrade" that wizard; what I'm asking for is some other kind of Epic Bitcoin Wizard.
Further, I am calling upon the legendary generosity of Bitcoin holders both great and small. Either pledge your own, or bitcointip something to me and I'll send yours where I send my bitcoin. I'll keep this post updated with the total pledged/tipped. The contest (or at least, my fork of it ;) ) will
last exactly one week end exactly on 0:00 UTC, new years day
. I'm predicting that my choice will be close to popular opinion, but that's not a promise! 1+ btc:
The first 1 btc will go to whoever I've decided has won. If others contribute to the bounty, their portions will obviously go to whoever they
think won, so multiple first-place winners are possible. Also, keep in mind that the picture itself could make more than just the bounty, when tips are factored in. This image
, for example, included a Bitcoin address for donations, and has received over 0.3 btc since it was published only 12 days ago. As stated above, the deadline for this is midnight of January 1st, UTC
, and will be awarded immediately. 0.1 btc:
My choice of second place! Same deadline.
The rest of my bounty is going toward more managerial things, but will still be pretty subjective. 0.05 btc:
I'll give out a bit of this per day around this time to whoever has provided the best blog on the progress of the contest. This is a bounty that might be split among multiple people each day, but it could just as easily all go toward one consistently good blog for the whole week. Style is great, but I'm looking for more of an informational log than a personalized writeup. 0.05 btc:
0.05 btc will be spread
among those who take this proposal/event and present it in a better way: reword things, rewrite entirely, add pictures, make a flier, translate something etc. Most of this bounty will go to the best material. I'll cough this up 2 days from now, as I'd rather have it created quickly. 0.03 btc:
0.03 btc will be spread
among those who effectively advertise or spread awareness of the contest, as soon as they provide some easily-verified account of what it was they did. Forums, blogs, whatever--the more effectively you spread awareness, the more of the bounty you'll get. If you help this cause in a relatively big
way (again, according to my subjective opinion), I'll dig at least a little deeper into my wallet than 0.03 btc. Just don't repost or be otherwise annoying! I'll pay this bounty at the same time as the winners are awarded. 0.001 btc (x10):
I'll give 1 mBTC to the first 10 verifiably independent donations of greater than 1.5 mBTC, offering a sort of rebate for the earlier tippers. Note that I can't offer this for pledges
unless you have a reputation that actively demonstrates trustworthiness.
For those of you who want to donate but don't use the bitcointip bot, use 15ymWo7bXwAN2QfAjgYXJ2N3kbCo1QmGp4.
Well, that's just about all I came here to say. Let's do this!
EDIT 1: You guys can make up your own minds, but I would consider any material that is produced by this contest free of licensing and restriction
. If you want to maintain copyrights and licenses throughout your artwork, that's your call, but free ideas are usually more beautiful.
EDIT 2: At 9:00 UTC every day til the contest ends, I'll give out an award of
20 mBTC 10 mBTC to the current first-place holder.
(Sorry to change my mind, but I'm not made of money and apparently couldn't do basic math when I made this edit originally)
EDIT 3: There is a placement post showing the ordering of my top picks
, which I try to update as often as this post.
(on the 29th something came up, so I don't know who was actually in the lead... if it was you, speak up!)
The first place winner, on new years day UTC, was gapmunky, with this fantastic piece.
EDIT: ...Then, it was pointed out to me that it was a photoshop edit of someone else's work. gapmunky returned the most of the prize money. 0.9 BTC of it went to zeedox (originally second place) for this piece, and 0.046 went to jharsem (originally third place) for this piece.

Other than that, just take a look around! Things are organized primarily with the [C] and [T] tags:
