Gridcoin HBI & STEM contest #30 - Nominate an awesome author and win!

in #stem10 months ago

Hello,

As you can see, I have decided to bring back the Gridcoin HBI program but this time with a twist. Instead of just having a list and give HBI in order, you will now have to do something. Nominate a post from the #STEM tribe or #science, #technology, #engineering, #mathematics, #gridcoin and #boinc categories and you could win a share of HBI, 50 GRC or 30 STEM tokens. Your nominee will also receive a prize.

What is @steembasicincome? FAQ

TLDR:

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content.

How this is going to work

It's fairly simple, you simply need to nominate a post that you find interesting from the STEM tribe or the gridcoin | boinc category by putting a link to it in comments.

Each following week, winning posts will be highlighted, both winners and nominated posts will receive a reward of their choice, if they answer in a timely manner. Otherwise I'll flip a coin.

Rules

  1. Nominate new posts no older than 1 week.
  2. Posts cannot contain plagiarized content.
  3. You can nominate boinc badge posts as long as they follow other rules.
  4. Do not nominate posts from blacklisted users.
  5. Put your GRC address in the comment if you want to be able to win the GRC prize.
  6. You can nominate your own posts.

Thank you and have a nice day.

It's a different type of post than the ones I've nominated in the past. I like this post because it shows how an average person without expensive telescope equipment can act as a "citizen scientist" and help document astronomy events. Looking at @fotosdenada past blog posts I can see astrophotography was something new and the blog post shows the dedication to trial and error in order to get a good photo of a rare comet.

It was posted on July 19 so it is less than a week old.

I have checked the post for plagiarism using plagiarismdetector.net.

I have checked that the post author is not currently on any blacklists being used by Hive.
