What exactly is the Steem Round?
The Steem Round is a 1oz, .9999 fine silver, limited mintage coin. It has been produced each year by the Steem Silver Gold (SSG) Community to promote Steem, celebrate all of the platform's communities and to showcase SSG's passion - buying silver and gold as a means to hold and accumulate wealth. 2019 marks the third year of the round!

WHO ARE OUR JUDGES?
@soyrosa is living in The Netherlands and on Steem - as a photographer and traveler and behavioral scientist there's always something to write about. Actually, blogging has been part of her life before 'paid blogging' and Steem even existed. She loves to read about people's lives: there’s content that anyone could’ve written, but your life’s story… That one is only yours. She's a true newbie silver stacker who got introduced to it by @silversaver888. That's also how she got to know the Steem Silver Gold Community as a very passionate group of people who engage a lot with each other - now let's try to get more people to know them!
@newageinv has been a part of the Steem community since December 2017 when he joined as part of his passion to learn and engage regarding investing and cryptocurrencies. Despite a career in the financial sector, technology has always been an important part of the journey as discovering bitcoin led to a slippery slope down the rabbit hole of decentralization and disruptive technology. After becoming a Minnow during the first year, the journey has gotten even better as the involvement in many Steem related projects has engaged him with many community members that demonstrate the greatness of this ecosystem. Interest in precious metals came as part of following the great community of Numismatic interest here in the platform as well!
@dfinney is one of the moderators for Steem Silver Gold (SSG). In this role, she tracks the community's membership list and is one of a small contingency who approves all new nominees to the group. @dfinney started coin collecting at the same time she joined Steemit - just two short years ago. For her, the friendships and connections made on Steem are the BEST parts of the blockchain. She is passionate about travel, music, ALL the holidays (especially Christmas), and her two little dachshunds, Jasper and Kodi.
Judges are ineligible to enter/win this contest.

Special thanks to @smooth for sponsoring this contest, and to @sevinwilson for being the brainchild behind the initial creation of the Steem Silver Round.
