Welcome to the #GooglyPrize,
the googliest award on the blockchain.
We're coming into the 4th week at 0% SBD print-rate and I still haven't come up with a good solution to adapt the prize-pool to work without liquid steem-dollars. Right now 100% of all winner-announcement-rewards are going directly into the googly delegation pool.
Throughout the past issues we have drained the googly-piggy-bank to keep issuing some liquid SBD-prizes, but as the situation continues, we'll have to switch over to using the liquid STEEM rewards to fund the cash-prizes to our winners. I think it might be a nice idea to pay out liquid STEEM through sponsoring @steembasicincome shares for our winners. This way the winners and the @googlyeyes account would gain a long term upvote subscription, a lasting prize for the winners with the positive side effect, that @sbi upvotes will also continue to contribute to the prize-pool itself in the future... please let me know what you think about that in the comments!
I don't have much experience with this @sbi thing, but I'd like to give it a try... now I don't want to mess with the googly-community-funding just to try something... so, for today, I'll just put up 2SBD and 3STEEM from my own (fraenk's) wallet to fund 3 sbi-shares as well as a small cash-prize for today's winners while we also still keep 100% of the post-rewards powering up the delegation pool. Enjoy ;)
The Prize Pool:
the SBD pool remains empty: 0.096 SBD
upvote purchases are suspended due to the obvious lack of cash in the pool
and an available delegation-prize of 188.818 SP
100% of all rewards on last week's winner announcement:
0.000 SBD and 2.920 SP and 2.920 STEEM
that makes 0.096 SBD in the cash pool: 40% will be used for next week, 60% will be paid out today!
3rd - 10%; 2nd - 20%; 1st - 30%
The cash-pool is drained, @fraenk is sponsoring 2 SBD and some SBI shares
That's 2.000 SBD in cash prizes!
3rd - 0.4; 2nd - 0.6; 1st -1.0
three @steembasicincome shares!
one for each winner
194.658 SP will be delegated to our googly winners!

We had six entries to chose from today, and as usual, some googly friends and family members volunteered to pick their three personal favourites over on Planet Googly (Discord).
this week's qualifying posts were submitted by:
@bucipuci, @ragnar29, @yogattitude, @mandysp, @kaerpediem and @kristyglas
today's guest judges were:
@dexterdev, @hopehuggs, @isnogud and @mathowl
disclaimer: guest judges are not allowed to vote for their own entries!
🥁 HERE ARE THE WINNERS: 🥁
🥉 Today's 3rd winner is: 🥉
this creepy googly glow in the dark critter, courtesy of @kristyglas' siblings, received 2 favourite votes from the googly community and made it to the third spot on the pedestal today, but, spoiler alert... it'll actually win big today!
🥈 The 2nd winner is: 🥈
@mandysp is back to tell us about her struggles with getting a working internet connection from Venezuela, she took the opportunity she had to share some #googlyeyes. With two jury votes on her post she even makes it onto the pedestal, too. So at least there's that little victory for you here.
🥇 And Our Grand Winner is: 🥇
@yogattitude graces us with a rare post after 3 months of silence on her account. And this one is a piece of googly gold, no wonder all four guest judges in the jury picked this one as a favourite!
another drumroll, please
🥁 this week's Googly-Delegation-Winner is: 🥁
you'll receive the full delegation of 194.658SP for a week.
While it does make me feel a bit warm and fuzzy inside to see two completely inactive steemians come back just for this show, an active voting pattern is a prerequisite to qualifying for the delegation award, we wouldn't want that steem-power to go unused. So unfortunately, since @mandysp and @yogattitude have barely used their accounts at all, besides posting their entries, this round's delegation share is left all to our third winner, @kristyglas.
The #GooglyPrize continues!
prizes are being awarded every 7-8 days
No mandatory resteems, upvotes or follows are required!

More Winners Every Week!
The prize-pool for the next issue contains:
0.096 SBD :( and a delegation-prize of 188.818 SP
100% of all rewards on THIS POST!
since we don't need to expect the SBD-print-rate to suddenly come back before HF20 gets pushed to the network, we'll continue the SBI trial next week, so you can expect to see some SBD and 3 more shares to be sponsored by @fraenk ;)
