To enter, complete the steps as instructed for any one of the following methods of entry during the Sweepstakes Period:
Limit: FIVE PORTFOLIOS PER ACCOUNT DURING SWEEPSTAKES SUBMISSION PERIOD. LIMIT ONE ACCOUNT PER PERSON. Any attempt to obtain additional entries, including through multiple or duplicate accounts will result in disqualification.
By following the instructions above to create a Portfolio, you agree that your Portfolio conforms to these Official Rules and that you only have one account. Sponsor may choose to remove any Portfolio or disqualify you from the Sweepstakes if it believes that your Portfolio fails to conform the Official Rules.
If participating in this Sweepstakes via your mobile device (which service may only be available via select devices and participating wireless carriers, and is not required to enter), you may be charged for standard data use from your mobile device according to the terms in your wireless service provider’s data plan. Normal airtime and carrier charges and other charges may apply to data use and will be billed on your wireless device bill or deducted from your pre-paid balance. Wireless carrier rates vary, so you should contact your wireless carrier for information on your specific data plan.
All Portfolios must be submitted by the individual entrant. Bulk or automated entries will be disqualified (including entries made using any script, macro, bot, or promotional service). Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email account. Any attempt to obtain additional entries through fraud or other illegitimate means will result in disqualification, at Sponsor’s discretion.
In the event of a dispute about the identity of the entrant, entries will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the account on which the Portfolio submission is made. An “authorized account holder” means the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. A potential winner may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that a potential winner is the authorized account holder of the account associated with the winning entry.
Three daily and three week prizes will be awarded based on the performance of the Portfolios.
Daily Prize: Every day, beginning on December 28, 2017 and ending on January 1, 2018, the Portfolios will be monitored to determine the three cryptocurrency Portfolios with the highest percentage growth from the start of the day to the end of the day (12:00:00 a.m. UTC to 11:59:59 p.m. UTC). Beginning on December 26, 2017, each of the three daily winners from the previous day will receive their prize in their ethereum account, calculated for their USD equivalence as of 12:00:00 a.m. UTC on the day following the day for which they have been selected as a winner (e.g., 12:00:00 a.m. UTC on December 27 for the December 26 prize period), as set forth in Section 6. LIMIT: One prize per Portfolio per day.
Week Prize: The three Portfolios with the highest percentage growth in the cryptocurrency portfolio from the start to the end of the Week Sweepstakes Period will each receive a prize in their ethereum account, calculated for their USD equivalence as of 12:00:00 a.m. UTC on the day following the end of the Week Sweepstakes Period (January 1, 2018) as set forth in Section 6. LIMIT: One weekly prize per Portfolio during the Week Sweepstakes Period.
Tiebreaker: If any Portfolios are tied for the amount of growth, the tiebreaker will be the Portfolio with the single cryptocurrency with the highest amount of growth during the applicable period.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Sponsor may require each potential winner to sign and return, within five days of being notified, an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release in order to claim his/her prize, or otherwise request verification information from potential winner. Sponsor will verify that the ethereum account of each potential winner is valid and complete, and accounts with invalid ethereum addresses will result in the prize being forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner. If (i) the attempted notification is returned as undeliverable without a forwarding address; (ii) any required documents are not returned within five days, such as the Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release, tax forms, or verification requests; or (iii) if potential winner is otherwise unable to accept the prize as stated, the prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner. Only three alternate winners will be selected for each prize, after which the remaining prizes will not be awarded. If, by reason of a print or other error, more prizes are claimed than the number set forth in these Official Rules, an alternate winner will be selected in accordance with the above selection process from among all eligible claimants making purportedly valid claims to award the prizes available.
Verification of Potential Winner: EACH POTENTIAL WINNER IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE SWEEPSTAKES. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A PRIZE WINNER UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE AND NO FURTHER ACTION IS NEEDED.
