This is what we love about the writing contest - it’s a HUGE win for the sponsor as they own the tag (in this case, the mighty #blockchain tag) on HackerNoon, it’s a win for our community, as their stories get rewarded, and it’s a win for HackerNoon as we get to publish fantastic stories on HackerNoon.

Kudos to our sponsor Tatum. Hats off to the HackerNoon blockchain community.

“I like this because of the timeline included in there and this goes a bit more in-dept into the history, structure and specifics of the blockchain as well as potential use cases for a very rounded out article for those new to the topic” - HackerNoon Editor.

Congratulations, @zartaj, on taking first place and winning 500 USDT!!

The SECOND place goes to Metamask - Is It Really A Wallet? by @moderneremite.

“This starts off as a really good tongue-in-cheek look at Metamask and how it functions and whether it should be called a wallet at all, and also provides some really good analogies. The writing style is very interesting and engaging, and draws in the reader. Love the use of gifs throughout.” - HackerNoon Editor

@moderneremite, You have won 300 USDT for winning second place; great job!!!

In the THIRD place, we have Understanding the Blockchain: The Foundation of Cryptocurrency by @infinity.

“Buffett choking out Elon!? How is that not the best image of all time. This story should win all the awards.
In all seriousness though, this is a good introduction to the Blockchain from a novice's POV of learning about it from scratch. Had good infographics in it as well.” - HackerNoon Editor

Congratulations to @infinity, You have won 100 USDT!!

Last but not least, the “Most Read Story” Award goes to Metamask - Is It Really A Wallet? by @moderneremite.
