You must have a BuySellHODL Member Account (as that term is defined in the Terms of Service) to participate in the Contest. To register for a Member Account, download the BuySellHODL app from the iTunes App Store or the Google Play Store.
Any User participating in the Contest accepts and agrees to these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which shall be final and binding in all respects.

For purposes of the Sweepstakes, “household members” shall mean those people who share the same residence at least three months a year and “immediate family members” shall mean parents, step-parents, legal guardians, children, step-children, siblings, step-siblings, or spouses.
Contest is void where prohibited by law. Users are solely responsible for compliance with the laws in their jurisdiction. Some jurisdictions prohibit receipt of a prize in this Contest.
NOTE: Participation must be by the User only, and only through the BuySellHODL Platform as applicable. Participation by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any other website, platform or e-mail address, including but not limited to commercial promotion subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and may result in the cancellation of the corresponding Member Account at the sole discretion of Sponsor. The use of any device to automate the entry process is prohibited.
HOW IT WORKS: Contest start date and times will be announced through the BuySellHODL Platform. To participate in a Contest, you must log-in to your BuySellHODL Account at or before a Contest start time. During the Contest you will be given the opportunity to predict whether the price of the cryptocurrency selected will go up or down. The objective is to make as many accurate predictions in a row as you can, referred to as your ‘win streak.’ If there is a cash prize stated for the current contest, it will show how many correct predictions in a row you need to get a share of the prize. Your current ranking is shown on the leaderboard. If you achieve the minimum ‘win streak’ required to win, you will get a share of the prize for that Contest. There is a formula to determine each ranking’s share of the total prize. The higher your ranking, the higher your share of the total prize amount.
EXTRA LIVES: You may earn one (1) extra life each time your referral code is used during registration of a new Member. You may use only one (1) extra life in any single Contest.
The BuySellHODL Platform’s database clock will be the official timekeeper for each Contest. Contest Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Contest or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of entries in the Contest. The Contest Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries. In the event of a dispute over the identity of a User, participation will be deemed completed by the authorized account holder of the email address and/or mobile telephone number associated with such Member’s Member Account. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider, wireless carrier, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
The designated total prize available for each Contest will be set forth prior to the start of the corresponding Contest. This prize is split amongst the winners. The users with the longest win-streak and rank for the contest, viewable on the leaderboard, will get a larger share of the prize.
All prizes will accumulate in a Member’s Account until total combined winnings reach US$50. All winnings will be paid via paypal.com. Once a Member’s total combined winnings reach US$50, the Member will have ninety (90) days to claim his/her prize or the winnings will be forfeited. To claim your winnings you must be logged into the BuySellHODL Platform, then, go to “Account” and then “Balance”, and click on “Cashout” where you will be prompted to enter the email address associated with your PayPal Account.
Should any individual Member win US$600 or more in a single calendar year, additional verification of eligibility will be required to receive the prize. A representative of Sponsor will contact any Member who reaches this threshold with details on the additional requirements. Additionally, any potential prize winner may be required to execute an Affidavit (or Declaration, as applicable) of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize Claim Documents”) prior to claiming a prize. If any potential winner fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within the time frame required by Sponsor, such potential winner may be disqualified from receiving the applicable prize.
Members must have their own individual PayPal account in order to receive cash prizes. PayPal is subject to separate terms and conditions.

Should PayPal become unavailable for an extended period of time, Sponsor will select an alternate means for delivering cash prizes and shall alert all Members of same.
