Cosmos Riders: Social Grid

December 09 ,2022

Last week’s launch of our Cosmos Riders contest brought our community together to solve riddles and work through a series of tasks. This week, we’re bringing the next competition to your doorstep... Social Grid. Important Note: If you didn’t take part in last week’s Entrance Plaza competition, you’ll have to do that first before joining the Social Grid competition. We recommend reading our Entrance Plaza blog article to get started.

2nd Competition: Social Grid

Welcome to Social Grid, the second competition in our community contest! This competition will run for a month with a focus on content! Every week, new participants can join the competition for a chance to complete the task and show us what you've got. We'll keep you updated with status reports at the end of each week.

Video creator? Create a 2 to 5 minute video reviewing IST and upload it to Youtube. Writer? Ink a 500-word article about an aspect of Inter Protocol and publish on Medium.

Tweet lord? Write a 10-tweet thread about your favorite aspect of Inter Protocol. The key rule is that all submissions must be in English.

Even if you are not chosen as a winner for the Social Grid competition, you will still receive the Content Guru role, which grants you access to the next competition! 

Additional Details
  • Up to 5 winners can each earn 400 BLD every week that the Social Grid is open

  • If any BLD remains at the end of a week during the competition, it will be transferred to the next week's pool of BLD.

  • Participants can only win once per competition

We’re excited to share this Cosmos Riders community contest with you and are very much looking forward to seeing what you produce.

Ready to start? Join the Inter Protocol Discord to begin your journey.


How do I know I’ve completed the Social Grid competition? 

Participants who complete the task of the Social Grid channel will receive the Content Guru role on Discord after the update of the competition is posted.

I completed the competition, but I didn’t receive any BLD

Up to 5 competitors can receive 400 BLD each. If you were not selected, you will have a new chance each week to improve the content that you previously created until we close the Social Grid competition at the beginning of January 2023. 

Why can't I see the Social Grid channel?

The Cosmos Riders contest requires participants to complete every competition to advance to the next. If you cannot see the Social Grid channel, it means that you first have to complete the Entrance Plaza competition.

11.2.   Certain Risks Associated with BLD Tokens and Other Digital Blockchain Assets.

11.2.1.   The Giveaway and any allocation of BLD tokens in connection with the Giveaway are not intended to be an offering or sale of securities, swaps on either securities or commodities or a financial instrument of any kind as may be determined by any law, rule, or regulation. The Giveaway may not be subject to the protections of any laws governing those types of financial instruments. Neither these Official Rules, nor any other content on the Sponsor’s websites or social media accounts or content distributed in connection with the Giveaway, constitute a prospectus or offering document, and are not an offer to sell. In the event that Sponsor deposits BLD tokens into an incorrect address, Sponsor may not have the ability, and is under no obligation or duty, to return such digital assets or BLD tokens to the Winner(s).

11.2.2.   Sponsor does not give any advice or recommendation regarding digital blockchain assets or BLD tokens, including, but not limited to, advice or recommendation relating to the suitability and/or appropriateness of, and investment strategies for, the purchase of such digital block chain assets for financial investment purposes. You are solely responsible for determining the nature, potential value, suitability, and appropriateness of Your involvement with the Giveaway and acceptance of BLD tokens for any purpose. The BLD tokens allocated in connection with the Giveaway are not designed for investment purposes and Sponsor does not give any advice or recommendation that the BLD tokens are to be considered as a type of financial investment by any law, rule, or regulation. You acknowledge and agree that You are not expecting to profit from the BLD tokens based on any efforts by Sponsor or its affiliates. The allocation of the BLD token is a non-reversible event. Sponsor shall not have any obligation or liability for the secure custody or use of the BLD token or any losses arising from such custody or use thereof.

11.3.   Please note the following risks in accessing or using BLD tokens: The value and liquidity of blockchain assets, including BLD tokens, are extremely volatile and may be subject to large fluctuations; fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect BLD tokens and the underlying currency supporting such BLD tokens, which may also be subject to significant volatility; legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal, or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of BLD tokens; BLD tokens are not legal tender and are not backed by the government; transactions in BLD tokens may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable; some transactions in BLD tokens shall be deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time of the transaction; the value of BLD token may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange fiat currency or digital assets for BLD tokens, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular BLD token should the market for that BLD token disappear; the nature of BLD tokens may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyber- attack, and may mean that technological difficulties experienced by Sponsor may prevent the access to, use or transfer of the digital assets described herein and/or any of the Winners’ personal information may create a risk that Your access to the Giveaway and BLD tokens will suffer.

11.4.   You are solely responsible for determining the nature, potential value, suitability, and appropriateness of the risks described in the Official Rules for Yourself. You are entering the Giveaway at Your own risk, without the expectation of any financial or other economic gain; however, You also acknowledge that this brief statement does not disclose all of the risks associated with BLD tokens and other digital blockchain assets. Sponsor will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays any Winner may experience when using BLD tokens or blockchain technology generally.

12.  Privacy. Sponsor, its representatives, affiliates, and any suppliers, partners, advertising and promotion agencies involved in the Giveaway may collect and process certain personal information and other data, including Discord identifiers and wallet addresses, to administer the Giveaway, award prizes and communicate with You. You hereby affirmatively consent to this collection and processing of data. You acknowledge that if You do not consent to this collection and processing of data, You must not enter the Giveaway.
