Are you interested in World Cup 2022? This may be for you!

HiveBuzz is known to be part of special events where badges are shared when you do certain tasks. Maybe the most popular of them on Hive are the PowerUp Days (HPUD, LPUD) and PowerUp Months (PUM).

World Cup is the ultimate competition for football fans, at the national teams level. Being once every 4 years, it might be an even higher attraction than the Champions League, which is every year. Or maybe not. Because the World Cup is the culmination of the national team matches, while Champions League is the same at the club's level (in Europe). So they are different things, even if the sport is played in both cases with feet (mostly).

Anyway, WC22 just started yesterday with a match between the controversial host of the competition, Qatar, and Ecuador. The game ended expectedly with the victory of the Ecuadorians.

I haven't watched the match, but have seen the brief highlights and it seems I didn't miss much.

I started with HiveBuzz and went to WC22. Is there a link between them?

Yes, there is.

HiveBuzz organizes a very interesting contest on Hive, related to the World Cup, which just started.

The contest has some serious prizes, and the interesting part is that everyone wins, not just the Top 3. 65% of the prizes are split by everyone not in the Top 3, based on how many correct prognostics they have.

First 3 receive

  • 1st place: 20% of the prize pool
  • 2nd place: 10% of the prize pool
  • 3rd place: 5% of the prize pool

There is a 1 HIVE registration fee for the contest, which will more than likely be recovered entirely from the prizes and, let's not forget, the curation rewards (because your prognostic for every match is expressed as an upvote on the right comment).

For the full rules, do consult the post by HiveBuzz!

It is not too late to join. You can join at any time, but the sooner the better because you have the chance to gather more badges and win a higher share of the prizes.

At this point, if you haven't joined, chances are you only lost the prognostic for the inaugural game. Maybe a few more games if you read this post later than it was published. But it is still early.

Good luck to you!

This post has @hivebuzz.pool set as 50% rewards beneficiary.

This is a very interesting contest and I would love to join in thanks for sharing. I'll read more to know about other rules.

Try to do it sooner because matches started to roll in and you lose the possibility to have a valid prognostic on them (you can't vote after the match starts).

Thanks I'll do that now. I think the first match is up and people are already voting.

That is the second match, ENG-IRN, and voting opened 24 hours before the match started. Once the match starts or after, the vote becomes invalid. The first match was between Qatar and Ecuador (0-2).

Currently, people can vote on 4 matches:

  • Senegal - Nederlands
  • USA - Wales
  • Argentina - Saudi Arabia
  • Denmark - Tunisia

In less than one hour Senegal - Nederlands starts and voting won't be possible on it.

Haha, haven't played since I was a kid. But a remote spectator, that I can be, from time to time.

It's easy and everyone can win, even if they know nothing about football, just by following the majority votes.

I am not a huge World Cup fan, but I am a fan of badges and Hive.
This contest is a no-brainer.
I have already had two out of three winners.

Thanks for sharing this, Adrian.

Cool! Indeed, even non-football fans can participate and earn without knowing anything about football (i,e, soccer).

I saw the contest and I decided to join in. I try to not comment on anything there so I don't get caught up in breaking the rules and just vote once per night.

Yep, it might be hard for you not to comment. :)

But the rule makes sense, as comments could influence the votes, plus there could be made duplicates of the official comments to vote on and people might vote on those by mistake.

It's not that hard. It's late at night when I get around to doing things anyways and I am tired by then. I'd rather go through my feed and voting is faster.

Yeah, what I meant was that you comment a lot, and you might comment by the force of habit.
