Another round of the Top 3 fun is coming to a close! As usual, the last order of business for the month is sharing which picks out of our awesome entries topped the “charts” for the round.
We very much enjoyed jamming out with the windows down to all of the great road trip songs our entrants shared for the August theme. The tracks spanned all different generations and genres, coming together for one ultimate playlist for an epic trip. We all found some new selections to add to our personal playlists thanks to the creative entries! Music is definitely a medium that can bring us all together, and we are very thankful for the growing community that continues to join us for this contest each month. You all rock!
Of course, we would like to once again thank @curie for increasing their sponsorship this month up to an amazing 40 extra Steem for prizes on top of the prize pool created by entry fees! This means not only the top 3 reap the rewards, but the top 5 will receive a split of the generous contribution from @curie. We are so grateful for the support for this and next month and hope it continues in future contests.
Without further ado, it is time to present our winners for this round. Using dpoll, we let you, the audience, vote for your favorites thus giving us the ultimate results! We then assign points to those voting positions and add up the three nominations for each contestant to make a final league table.
Here is the final league table:
1st place @erixinkLink to post - Entry fee paid $0.43 Prize $5.17 Plus 15 Steem
2nd place @dksartLink to post - Entry fee paid $0.11 Prize $0.88 Plus 10 Steem
3rd place @theunderbakerLink to post - Entry fee paid $0.50 Prize $2.01 Plus 7 Steem
4th place @mono.rosadoLink to post Prize 5 Steem
5th place @fmbs25Link to post Prize 3 Steem
Congratulations to the winners for the excellent nominations and winning this month’s contest round ! Be sure to check your wallets as the prize payouts will be with you shortly!
How does the prize payout work?
We have utilised some clever mathematicians all over the world to come up with a mathematically fair way of paying out. The payout is based on three things, the total prize pool, your final placing and your entry fee.
Why did second place win more than me?
This is possible. For instance, if the 1st place prize winner only paid a $0.50 entry fee but the 2nd place prize winner paid a $5.00 entry fee. That is a difference of x10 the amount and will be reflected in the final payout. Everybody has a chance to win an amount based off of their entry fee.
What are the percentages of payout based on the winning positions?
In the scenario that the three prize positions have all paid the same entry fee then the distribution of the prize pool would be so: 1st 50%, 2nd 33.3% and 3rd 16.6%.
