Ethereum Outreach and Onboarding Initiative 2 | Earn 400 HIVE + 550 LEO

in LeoFinance7 months ago (edited)


Now that we've integrated Metamask signups on, we're going to run Ethereum-targeted outreach initiatives each week with the goal of onboarding new authors and LeoFinance users. Last week, we ran a contest with the prompt "Join LeoFinance With Metamask and Earn ETH Rewards for Your Crypto Content".

The goal of last week's contest was to get some content out there and share it on other social media sites where ETH users live. We wanted to let them know that they could come here and earn ETH and other crypto rewards for their content creation. The winner for last week is @whatageek. With the post entry Earn Ethereum By Blogging About Finance (Seeking Writers For Online Work).

LeoFinance also has a Growth Team with ~10 members. This team works on social media outreach. The growth team is also judging the entries for these contests and each week, we'll leverage the winning entry and run extra campaigns, social outreach and paid ads with the content. @whatageek won 400 HIVE and 550 LEO for last week's contest. Congrats!



Week 2 Contest Rewards & Details:

The Rewards

@theycallmedan and @threespeak have graciously donated HIVE each week to the pool of rewards for this contest. @leofinance is also adding HIVE to this pool along with a matching amount of LEO from the bounties fund.

Community members @hitmeasap donated 50 LEO to this week's prize and @empoderat donated 100 LEO.

Total Rewards:

  • 400 HIVE

1 Winner Will Be Chosen Each Week:

How to Enter

This week, we want you to write about your favorite project in the crypto space. Most of us know about Hive and the goal is to outreach to other communities and onboard them into our community and blockchain. Please write about a non-Hive project and try to relate it to Ethereum or an ETH-based project if possible - since this is our target audience.


  • Minimum of 750 words in length
  • Shared on at least 2 social media platforms targeting the project and their community: For example, tagging the official project account and hashtag with a link back to your post (link to these social posts in a comment on your post - similar to #posh)
  • Post using the frontend
  • Include the #leocontest tag in your post

This week's contest idea was inspired by @jk6276 who continues to write great content about Thorchain and the RUNE cryptocurrency. These are the kind of posts that we're always looking for on LeoFinance (and especially in this contest) as his outreach initiatives to the Thorchain community and project have been extremely successful. You can also see his latest tweet getting retweeted by the official Thorchain account on twitter:

We're all acutely aware of how awesome it is to see people talking about your favorite crypto project. Whenever you see a great post about Hive either on Hive or on another platform, you get excited. This is generally what we're trying to do with this contest - write about a Non-Hive crypto project that has your interest and then tag and target their official account and audience. Get their attention and share a great piece of content about the project they are obsessed with. This is one of the best ways to onboard new users to LeoFinance x Hive.

I was genuinely shocked when I saw the Leo in my account and thought it was a mistake. Especially seeing how many great entries there were.

Thank you again, the Leo is already staked in my account lol.

This. This is a great initiative. 👆

Congrats @whatageek! All the entries were great, and I hope you win next time!

A contest that motivates each member to participate and try win it all. The prize pool is considerable as well which should bring some buzz around it. The only thing that remains is to come up with a great story either from own experience or seeing it from aside. Let's call for the inspirations gods to bless me!

Congratulations @whatageek.
I also think a little percentage of the pool should be allocated to participants.

This is a great Idea and I felt really pumped up with this and did a post
With the idea that I could promote the on boarding process.
However in my Adrenalin rush I missed the #leocontest tag
Now when I edit the post I find the text is editable but the tags are not.
I remember in the old blockchain it used to be just the fist tag which we could not change but in my case none of the tags are editable.
Can you please suggest a way out or a workaround of some sort.

I am keen to play my part to help in the on boarding process

This is awesome. I love how the community helps the little people! I'm new to Hive ecosystem. I'm trying my hardest to transition from the construction world to Blockchain sustainability. Anyone that would like to help? Pls. do so. I don't have but one or 2 Hive so far. But thank you for inspiring content.
