It's a fifth of a share, probably from marketing.

I gotta correct myself.  I said a few days ago there were a few people with 70+K words so I asked why a winner was announced a few days early.  I looked at the distribution again and the people who show 70K or more that's actually their total.  One has to look at the last column (Payout) to see the total from this round or round 24.  And in that case there's nobody even close to the 77K "Lawyer" did in which case I see why the results were announced. 

Man, it was much harder than I thought to do a significant amount of writing without burning out.  Wish I could program, that would be a lot more fun.

Congrats to Lawyer, 77K is a crazy amount to write.  I nearly broke myself and I got significantly less than that. lol.

How do you write 80k in a round? How much is that going to be worth next round?

Are you talking about round 24?  I didn't see anybody with 80K. If you do then give a heads up cause you're probably in first place.  I think first round ends at 93,300.  That's what I've seen on here from reputable posters.

it wasn't over the round chaps, was a private comp jasinlee ran over a specific period (think it was 1st-31st may) so the count would have been marked on those days.

Thanks for the updated list.  I remember like 3 or 4 days ago Jaisn asking for "Lawyer's" address to ship him the first place prize which was a tablet.  I'm not sure why this was done almost a week prematurely.  Perhaps cause there was nobody close to "Lawyer" with such little time left.  

I hope you didn't lose your prize.  Congrats on 80K, that's really a hard thing to do, unless you have pre-existing articles already.  It's good for devcoin to see so much more content flowing out.  I wonder how much a share will be worth in round 24?  My gut feeling is around 145,000 coins as opposed to 359,000 for round 23 and around 1.41 million for round 22.  I'm also curious to see how many people continue contributing with both, the value of devcoin and the actual coins per share, having plummeted this past round.  

Cause at this point it's like working for about $2 per hour, unless of course, you have articles which you have already written for other sites.  And I think going forward as we get more and more third wolrd country contributors from places like Asia, India and Eastern Europe, it should only get more and more competitive.  That's great for devcoin but not so good if you're trying to earn and you have to give up a more profitable opportunity cost when compared to the current payout of devcoin. I'm banking on the idea that devcoin will reach much higher levels eventually.  

Good luck!

To answer your question about why the Lawyer was contacted, the tablet contest ended on the 31st. Really I still would have won but I was told only a few days earlier by two of the more prominent members not to go over 60k because it would be lost, so I purposely stopped there, Sad. It was just recently that it was boosted to 80k max.

But such is life!

Oh, man, sorry to hear that.  I read a few days ago that the cutoff used to be 60K, I guess I'm lucky I'm new cause it's been 80K since I got here about 5 or 6 weeks ago.

Well, at least you'll get some decent amount of coins due to your output.  Congrats and thanks for your effort and hard work.

Nope, you would have to read the posts that  unthinkingbit linked, but....the contest was run only by me, just for the month and had nothing to do with the round.

Not sure if you're talking to me, Jaisn.  I said about a week early cause I'm also counting the remaining 3-4 days we still have left.

I didn't know initially it was a may contest only which is why I asked why a winner was announced prematurely.  It's your contest, your money, thanks a lot for being generous and thoughtful.  This is the kind of generosity that brings a lot of awareness to devcoin.

Ranlo, you mind if I ask:  are you a writer or did you have articles pre-written from other sites perhaps?  Just curious cause I worked really hard and I'm far from 80K.  Some nights I wrote straight thru until the next evening.  Maybe that's why I burned out, I hit it too hard and furious.  Lol.

I was just so excited to have found a way to earn crypto-coins.  I was posting page long posts on here until I got called a troll.  Ahaaaaa.

At any rate, at roughly $2 per hour now I don't know how much writing I'm gonna do.  I'll still write some but it's hard when I know I can allocate my time for things much more valuable, either monetarily or family-wise.  But I really believe in this thing, I'm a long term holder - i will not sell any of my crypto-coins, and I really want devcoin to succeed so I'll write even if it's just a charitable thing but I don't know if I'll have the chutzpah to write 18 hours straight when the financial reward is no longer there.  

But with Devtome and Devcoin's skyrocketing popularity, on a global scale now, I don't expect this type of reaction to have a significant impact on new content going forward.  It will definitely be an interesting case study to see how things develop over the next few months.  We definitely need a catalyst in the short run to help drive the price of Devcoin back up - to mitigate the sharp drop in share value.  Maybe some big development such as a huge investment by Wallstreet or a big name such as a Soros.  I' convinced it's coming and soon - 3-12 months.

Good luck, bro.

Not sure what you're talking about with the $2 an hour thing Vlad. I got 17.2 shares last round = ~6179641dvc = ~7.6btc = ~$823 at current exchange rates. Now, I posted some stuff I had written in the past, and I also got some shares for programming work (which actually took more time than writing), but assuming I had got those shares for writing 17k words, that'd mean I had spent over 400hrs, at ~40 words an hour. I definitely write faster than that!

I think if you're writing about something you know a lot about, 400 words an hour is a reasonable pace, which would give an estimate of about $20 an hour. Not bad for freelance writing. Granted, some people might write slower than that, and the exchange rate is crashing a bit, but it seems to me writing is still worth your while. I haven't had as much time this round to write (finals week in my university right now), and it is a bit discouraging seeing how many words the top writers have contributed, while I've only written about 4000. But even if there are twice as many shares that is still about $100! And I don't know about your situation, but as a college student, an extra $100 a month is very helpful. Smiley

That was last round. This current round is less than half that, and is expected to keep getting lower and lower.
