I do understand....

Or like maybe when a guess is made other person have to guess with a margin like 25 up and down of the other person like you chose 7200 then only from 7225 or below 7175 are available....

Or like every 200 $ starting from zero till...... is a box and every one in that box has to equally share the price ....
Like 10 persons in that box everyone gets 1/10 of the price....??

What would be best one of those

Or just how things are going....

And yes I buy some corn just to support the games after the personal losses .......

Yes both options could be valid. The first option (automatically reserving 25 over and under the guess price) would probably the better and easier to implement.

That would encourage participants to be faster in their predictions in contrast to what happens now in which it is "technically" better to wait. Of course it is "just" a game, a free one thanks to your generosity, but still there is money (and not a trivial amount for most) on the table. Plus everyone likes to try win, money or not, because that is part of the fun.

On the other hand, the predefined slots which multiple people can choose if they believe that will be the price even if they would have to share it has an additional advantage. There is a possibility there might be more happy winners. But on the contrary the prize would be less impresive for each of them.

So yes, both options might be interesting but they have different pros and cons.

If it would be me, probably I would go with the first option because everything is easy to understand and manage and it is the less change to current "rules". Instead of just making sure a pick hasn't been taken before, participants (and you when updating the list) just have to make sure their pick is $25 apart from any other previous picks.

Easy and it will encourage to make picks as soon as possible. And still there can be only "ONE winner that takes it all" lol

Or go with the shareable slots if you want to allow for the chance of multiple winners sharing the victory. That would also make for an interesting experiment to see how many people decides to go with their guess no matter if there are already a bunch of others on the same slot. That is not currently possible and people gets forced to either box someone (which I consider somewhat impolite and try to avoid) or go for a second best guess, or third...

BUT... that alternative would not encourage participants to make their pick fast. Maybe on the contrary, it would still be better to wait and decide as you can always share the spot even if previous participants picked it first.

So I would go for the first option, yeah.

P.S.: In fact both alternatives are the same being the difference if the slots can be shared (which doesn't encourage early picks) or are unavailable for next participants (which encourages early picks in some way).

Dragon, Christmas is approaching and I've been a very good boy. Maybe Santa ticks it up several rackets, enters top gear and burns the nitro.

Still very dull end of the year, so am hoping for a lot of fireworks in the final week. The way things been going, can't help but smell something round the 2020 corner. Pure psychology, something got to give.

Yeah, we're so close and it is 7 days left and this is very exciting.

I didn't see now that there is a chance to win those who are predicting $10k price up (including me).


I have also a thread contest like this inspired by @micgoossens works, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5190296.0.
Only one participant who predicting in a line of $7k range price and that was @cabalism13.

Thanks for your vote of confidence, but I think it's unlikely I'll win this bet. Coming in Top 10 I'd say is very likely, Top 5 probably, maybe even Top 3.
Going sideways for 5 days seems as unlikely, therefore we'd need to break down and back up, or visa versa, back to where we were... which I'm not entirely convinced about right now.

That'd be no problem, I'd gain more than $921.87 so can live with that  Cool

Like dragonvslinux asserted it seems very difficult that BTC prices are going to stay flat for nearly another week at this time of the year, but you really never know with Bitcoin. 

Also, remains much easier to attempt to bet on the possible winners when we are in the last lap of the race rather than nearly three months earlier, and frequently if we are in some kind of holding pattern, there can be some confidence to assert that the holding pattern is going to continue to hold, but there could be some whales who are waiting and waiting and waiting to pounce, and even they cannot really be certain that they are going to end up being correct when the do attempt to pounce.

I would say that betting nearly three months ago was a much larger crap shoot, but surely retrospectively seems reasonable that BTC prices have done a considerable correction down from their 3.5x jump earlier in the year (April to June).  Frequently, the BTC price moves can be described as "retrospectively reasonable" when we look at them much later, as compared to when we are caught in the midst of them... when as mere small fishes (speaking for myself and likely the vast majority of posters on this forum) it can frequently be difficult to see our hands in front of our faces.

Try doing the guessing game(s) for "real" free and don't give out any bitcoins and find out what happens?
