HOBONICKELS GPU CONTEST – WIN A FREE XFX 7950

Recommended Posts

presstab

Alright fellow HoboNickelers the time has come to start a fun contest/drawing.  I have a used XFX 7950 that is in good hashing condition that I am donating to this drawing. The winner will be shipped the card.  I will throw up some pictures of the card soon.

 

Here is how the contest will work:

 

- On Sunday, April 27th the first Proof of Stake block accepted by the network will be used as the official drawing.  How it will work is that the hash of the block will be taken and the first 7 numbers that appear in the hash will be the official drawn number.  So for example if a block has the hash 240f3bf3bbf0be2fff428e3a20e4855ef83006ebb216baac90372977d878826d the official drawn number will be 2,403,302.  Whoever has the closest number will take the prize. The guess can be above or below and still win (not price is right rules).

 

- Each user will be given one free guess.  Each user will need to have an account on Cryptocointalk or Bitcointalk that was created before the date of this post.

 

-Each guess should be a 7 digit number.

 

-Guesses will need to be sent via private message to Presstab on cryptocointalk

 

- Additional guesses can be purchased for 30 HBN

 

- Time zone is UTC and will be as is reported by hbn.blockx.info

 

-As this card is my own, I have the right to change the rules at any time. I am fair and will only change rules if there is an unfair exploit.

 

The card will be shipped to anywhere in the US for free, and for international shipping I will give a $15 credit and the rest of shipping will need to be paid by winner.

I'm not a big XFX fan but I'm a huge HBN fan so I might as well give it a shot.

Yeah XFX isn't the best. But they do have a lifetime warranty. I just RMA'd one of these and they sent me a brand new 280x.
