Octominer & gpuMining Christmas Contest Giveaway!!!

We are back at it again with another contest for the community! This time we wanted to partner with a community that has been a big user of Octominer server rigs for some time. We reached out to Zn2Plus which is the main mod over at /r/gpumining to collaborate to bring you all an awesome and creative contest we think everyone will have fun being a part of. With over 84k subscribers, there is a wide variety of members that contribute and call /r/gpumining their home and favorite place to talk about crypto mining. We’re very thankful for the opportunity to continue to team up with such great people in our community!

This isn’t your typical contest where you blast everything on social media or submit your email address for a chance to win, no. We wanted this to be an experience and give everyone an opportunity that wants to be involved a chance to win!

We’ll be creating 6 threads with various topics. Each thread will have a prize of an Octominer rig model. Each thread will have a theme for a photo that the community will need to submit in order to enter the contest. After each submission period is done, we will create a poll and have the community vote on the winner of each thread for the specific photo. The post with the most votes will win.
