How to Explain Blockchain Gaming to Your Grandma by @itooamcraig

Congratulations @itooamcraig! Humor always wins 🔥 You have won 1500 TON.

Here, just let me do it… Okay, Grandma, so you remember how during The Depression you stored all of your money in the walls because you didn't trust the banks, but then that money was eaten by squirrels? Well, think of blockchain technology as the walls, except for this time it's not full of squirrels that will eat your money. And we're not storing regular money in these walls; we're storing something called "digital assets".

Security in The Sea of Decentralized Finance by @elagai won second place with 19% of votes.

In this article, we will not talk about such simple things as the safety of private keys or seeds since this is an axiom for cryptocurrency users.

Here we will tell, for example, how to differentiate between DeFi projects to which you can entrust your funds from projects you need to avoid.

Yay, @elagai you have won 1000 TON crystals!

In the third place, we have Is Decentralisation Even Real? by @sh4rmini with 13% of the votes.

In summary - decentralisation as a concept and philosophy is one of the impulses of the cryptocurrency and digital assets industry. Yet as the industry matures from the fringe and counter-cultural early days towards the institutional inflow of 2021, it is clear that decentralisation and even the rails towards true decentralisation are yet to exist and must be built in collaboration with incumbents.

Couldn’t agree more, @sh4rmini! You have won 500 TON crystals.

On that note, let’s close the announcement.

The competition will last till the end of this year. See the rules here. Remember, decentralization is for everyone.

EVERYONE CAN PARTICIPATE!

See y'all next month!
