Blockchain Decrypted Is Doing Its First Survey with a Prize!

Exciting news guys! Blockchain Decrypted is doing a survey with a $100 Amazon gift card raffle!

I’m looking for people with at least a basic understanding of cryptocurrency to answer some questions about a potential course I’ll be making.

If that sounds like you, feel free to sign up!

Look at it this way, if only 10 people sign up for my survey, you have a 10% chance to get a $100 Amazon gift card, free.

Seems pretty good to me!

This also means the survey application deadline is Sunday, April 7th at 11:30 AM EST. If you don’t sign up by then, unfortunately you won’t be a part of the raffle!

The winner will be shared (anonymously or with a first/first & last name, whichever they prefer) here on Blockchain Decrypted and our Facebook page.

The winner will be contacted via e-mail on Sunday at around 3:00 PM EST depending on the number of applicants.

Anyone with an understanding of crypto and an interest in online courses will really be helping me out by taking the survey. They’ll be earning a prize too.

Please note that it’s critical you put a real e-mail address into the survey if you want to participate in the raffle. You will be told if you’re the winner via e-mail.

Your e-mail will not be shared with anyone, and we will not send you a single e-mail unless you want us to.

Here’s hoping I get some participants! Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you participating in Blockchain Decrypted’s first raffle!

***UPDATE***Unfortunately, due to lack of entrants the raffle has been postponed. Only 5 people signed up, minimum participation was 15 people. Better luck next time!
