4년 전

No kidding: a 2,000 SBD prize pool and ANYONE who can make a post, can join in the fun!

In only 14 days the biggest sports event in the world will begin: The Football World Cup celebrated in Russia.


@blocktrades loves to sponsor this type of community engaging projects and @acidyo & @anomadsoul 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 @acidyo, 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.

For the Group Stage of this @blocktrades cup, all you have to do is make a post with your match predictions in each of these matches:

Russia v Saudi Arabia

Egypt v Uruguay

Morocco v Iran

Portugal v Spain

France v Australia

Argentina v Iceland

Peru v Denmark

Croatia v Nigeria

Germany v Mexico

Brazil v Switzerland

Sweden v South Korea

Belgium v Panama

Tunisia v England

Poland v Senegal

Colombia v Japan

Russia v Egypt

Portugal v Morocco

Uruguay v Saudi Arabia

Iran v Spain

France v Peru

Denmark v Australia

Argentina v Croatia

Brazil v Costa Rica

Nigeria v Iceland

Serbia v Switzerland

Belgium v Tunisia

Germany v Sweden

South Korea v Mexico

England v Panama

Japan v Senegal

Poland v Colombia

Uruguay v Russia

Saudi Arabia v Egypt

Spain v Morocco

Iran v Portugal

Denmark v France

Australia v Peru

Nigeria v Argentina

Iceland v Croatia

South Korea v Germany

Mexico v Sweden

Serbia v Brazil

Switzerland v Costa Rica

Japan v Poland

Senegal v Colombia

All you have to do is make a post where you put W (for win), L (for lose) and T (for tie) in each game.

Someone is already going to translate it my friend but thanks :)


I'm very sorry for translating this post in Thai language,.. I'm sorry for not asking the permission @anomadsoul..


Your reputation is not upto 40


Do you mean am out?

I think I've got what it takes to win. Love these kind of contests. Come on bring it on. Thanks to @acidyo and @anomadsoul for such a great idea.

My suggestion

I am suggesting that mini or weekly draws enroute to the final draw. This could be done by rewarding the contestant with the highest points each week. This will lift moral high until the final announcement.
I hope my suggestion will be conceded.
Thank you.

Hello all, here is my entry,

Keep glowing @anomadsoul for the best ever steemit contest.
You are appreciated @blocktrades
Goodluck everyone.......
