# 15 STEEM + 10 SBD Giveaway (Out of The 75 STEEM I Won as Prize!)

I won a contest yesterday which had 75 Steem prize for the first place. I am so thankful to @timcliff for arranging the Steem Shilling Contest and choosing me as the winner. As a token of gratitude, I wish to spread the happiness and involve my followers via this giveaway.

I also hope that this contest will serve as something positive in a market which has seen Steem and SBD fall in value for a few months now. Honestly speaking, I am confused and hopeful at the same time about the crypto market situation. I understand that many people are really upset. I wanted to do this giveaway to bring some hope and smiles back.

## Prize

15 STEEM will be distributed between two winners as follows. 10 SBD prize added to facilitate multiple winners.

**10 STEEM**for the winner number one.**5 STEEM**for the winner number two.**EDIT**: Due to massive engagement, I have reserved 10 SBD for distribution among those people who have written winning number but after the original winner.So,

**6.77 SBD**will be distributed eqaully among all the participants with the winning number one.Likewise,

**3.33 SBD**will be distributed eqaully among all the participants with the winning number two.

How these two winners will be decided is clearly mentioned below.

## Procedure to Participate

I am doing this for my followers only so if you are not a follower, you can follow me to be eligible. Here are the rules to participate.

Resteem this post. Comfirm this in your comment. Upvoting this post is not compulsory.

For 10 STEEM prize, comment with any number from 1-100.

For 5 STEEM prize, comment with any number from 101-200.

You can comment with both numbers and theoratically can win both the prizes. Make sure both numbers are from the ranges specified above.

Make sure your numbers are unique. In case winning number is shared by more than one participants, the participant who commented first will be the winner.

Not doing any of the actions above will render you ineligible.

The last time to participate is 7:00 PM UCT, Wednesday 21 March, 2018. Comments after this time will not be counted.

These rules are fair and simple I think. Anyone from my followers can participate and win.

PS: If more than one participants have the winning number, the original price will go to the first person as mentioned in rules. *However, I will reward the second participant with 10 SBD outside the 15 STEEM prize money, as amended in prize description.*

## Choosing Winners

I will simply use Random.org to generate two random numbers as per the ranges defined in the contest. The participant who wrote the closest number to the random number thus generated will be the winner.

For example, if the resulting number from Random.org is 53 and Bob wrote 55 (for 10 STEEM prize), with all other numbers bigger than 55 or smaller than 51, Bob will be the winner because 55 is the closest number to 53. I hope you get it.

Winner will be announced on Thursday. Good luck to you. Steem on!

Winners Announcement

aiyumi (59)7 years agoHi, @ilyastarar. I ran into one of your posts while trying to understand Steemit rewards better (thank you for the great explanation!). I had taken a peek at your blog and found some helpful posts, though hadn't pressed the follow button at the time. But a few minutes ago I stumbled on this giveaway through observing my account's upvotes from a curation trail I'm in. Followed now!

Congratulations on winning the contest! It's so generous of you to share the prize, and through a simple contest that anyone can participate. I've just won the second place in a comment contest yesterday and can feel the happiness! Though my only way to spread the happiness is through upvotes, as the prize was a 200 SP delegation for one week.

Followed, upvoted and resteemed this post. My numbers: 79 and 180.

ulqu3 (66)7 years ago (edited)Lol I'm tempted to post my links. Congrats as well!

aiyumi (59)7 years agoThank you! I got tempted to link to my post where I talked about my surprise when I won second place, but decided against it :P .

ilyastarar (64)7 years agoCongrats. I reached your post anyway and gave a little upvote. ;)

aiyumi (59)7 years agoWow, thank you! :)

yairdd (67)7 years agoResteemed. Wouldn't resteem any contest, but everything you post is just straight quality so why not :)

Numbers - 25 and 125.

ilyastarar (64)7 years agoThank you! :)

steemcleanse (36)7 years agoWow congratulations on your win and thank you for doing your own contest. I resteemed and I select the numbers 54 and 123.

How nice you choose to share your winnings with the Steemit community!

ilyastarar (64)7 years agoSharing is caring. :)

And going for 7 and 114 as my lucky numbers.

aishaali (53)7 years agoThis is lottery/gambling. it’s tempting to participate in things like this, but I think it’s better to ask your followers to do something productive.

Besides this small criticism, I would like to say that you you are doing great work by writing useful posts about steemit and helping other steemians succeed on steemit.

Many Congratulations on winning the contest.

Wishing you all the very best.

My numbers are 69&159

Btw if you want to participate as participant number 50+, you got a hell of a job to find numbers that are not yet chosen 😁

ilyastarar (64)7 years agoAnd one hell of a job to find the winning number. 😀

I am worried about participation though. If it exceeds hundred participants, there is going to be some trouble.

ilyastarar (64)7 years agoI decided to reward in case of duplicate number winning as well. The payout of this post will be enough to give some reward even if the winning number is mentioned by two or more participants.

However, original prizes of 10 & 5 STEEM will not be split and will be given to the deserving winners in full!

crypto-econom1st (57)7 years agoPay out of the post seems to get so high you can have 200 participants 😬
