Welcome to 2022 folks! Been a crazy holidays especially Here at TheChiaPlot.net we ran our first (hopefully annual) Chialution contest with great success and are now going to share our winning submissions with everyone.
The end of 2021 was certainly a bit of a forgettable time in the history of Chia. But as a community we came into 2022 with a roar and the first few weeks are really starting to FOMO the Chia doubters once again. Reddit even saw its first memes and although it was certainly a flood, it was some refreshing content to say the least. (editor’s note: it was glorious)
Looks like a lot of people in the community had a few pent up. It’s good to see the community coming together like that. We need to see more of these meme weekends going forward; because if anyone has been following the recent BTC vs XCH twitter scuffles they have been calling our meme game weak from what I was told. So time to step it up people, let’s see those memes! I wasn’t a fan of warring on twitter until that comment so if the BTC maxis want a meme war I say in 2022 we start showing them those meme muscles we got from choreing on our Chia farms all summer.
On a less fanatical note 2022 also saw me purchase my first official NFT on the BNB blockchain and this has me REALLY excited for NFTs on the Chia blockchain. Can we just get marmot NFTs already? Seriously, how does a guy get on the waitlist for one of those? I’ll be super upset if I don’t have a marmot NFT twitter pfp by 2023, just saying.
Anyways onto the main point of this post is our 2022 Chialution contest. It was the first contest I’ve been a part of at thechiaplot.net and it went really well.. We had 25 entries across YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. With the winner coming from one of our Facebook entries. Which I want to say was really nice to see; a lot of the stuff I read in the Facebook groups has been pretty negative lately, awesome to see such a positive post come from that social medium.
First place went to Beau on Facebook who took home 20k SpaceBucks for his chialution entry.
Second place went to SpiritBreaker from twitter who actually gave us two really good entries!
Third place went to Aaron A Brown with a solid entry of his own.
Honorable mentions go to:
Chia in China.
Thank you to everyone who entered this year’s version. Hopefully we can do this again next year but bigger and better (maybe a marmot nft?). I think we really set a tone going into 2022; keep it rolling Chia community! Big thank you to thechiaplot discord and those who donated SpaceBucks to the contest.
Onto bigger and better things!
Chia to the moon pew pew 2022!!!
