I’m not exactly a hell of a writer but I sent my story (will post it here if I win).
I'll ask my friends to vote for me - I guess it won't hurt.
Wish me luck, I want the 3 btc!

I’m not going to win the prize because I’m not participating, but it’s been a few days only since I discovered ShapeShift and I would like to share my experience (this might be the wrong thread, if so, I beg your pardon).

I’m sort of hard to please and I would not often recommend a thing, but I used the Lens service and I was impressed with how simple it is to use and how fast it works.

Not only the contest looks great, Cointelegraph is one of the best resources there is to find out about crypto world news.

I wish I had a story to tell so I could participate.

Have you actually seen this article?
http://cointelegraph.com/news/112951/tell-cointelegraph-your-banking-horror-stories-by-november-28-and-win-3btc

The three stories it mentions are something to think about. I couldn’t just believe IRS did just that:

This one: https://transferwise.com/blog/2014-01/banking-scars-a-money-transfer-horror-story/

has not exactly told me something I didn’t know existed or happened it’s just shown once more
how obsolete and screwed up the modern banking system is in many ways.

Yet a few more reasons to stay away from classical banking and fiat money.

I sent a couple of stories and I hope I win! A friend had told me a really crazy one so I sent it as well.

btw, Shapeshift is a nice exchange service and with the guys being an active part of the community I’m willing to support them by using and recommending them (as long as their rates stay reasonable).

It’s been discussed here at this forum and elsewhere that the fiat money system and traditional banking system won’t play fair and will gladly take advantage of an average user (most often with the help form the government).

And I guess one of the tasks of the community is to draw everyone’s attention to it. More people should know the alternative and learn how to us it. So what Cointelegraph and Shapeshift are doing in this context is great. Thanks!

I have joined the contest just to be a part of it (though I do not mind winning at all nut I don’t think I will).

Is it ok to send a story that happened to my sister ?

She said she didn't want to participate and told me to go head and post her story.

As if we could totally stay away from banks - it would take decades for crypto money to get a noticeable share of payments.
But what should happen will happen, slowly as it might.

Can you provide a link to the page where the chosen stories are posted?

Here's one about a client getting screwed when using an overseas ATM - and imagine being able to avoid it by using btc from your smartphone/tablet.
How safer, faster and cheaper things van become if crypto currencies keep spreading throughout the world.
