@SeanAlimov and I would like to thank all those that have entered the Cardano Meme contest. We had over 300 submissions from across the community, at the same time bring new members into the world of Cardano by spreading the joy!

As the contest was fierce, we had to make some tough decisions! :muscle:

For those that didn’t make the cut, I can assure you @SeanAlimov, myself and the community as a whole, appreciate your time and effort to bring us such awesome memes!

The contest was a blast, and I personally had great fun checking out every meme and hope to keep contests like this going in the future. Thanks again all, and if anyone has any questions then please feel free to reach out to either @SeanAlimov or I. :+1:


The contest : create an original :cardano: meme. It must be hilarious , fun and Cardano related, bonus points for being educational.”


I would not have voted for who I did if it had been clear that I only got one vote. It said “vote for the top five winners” and thus I presumed I would have five votes.

It’s unlikely I will return to this website after this. But, a final suggestion would be to redo this poll because I doubt I am the only person this happened to.

If you do not bother - I change my vote from Basia to fstyle.

while it was hard to avoid the urge to vote for myself, in such a small contest, what hugodeanda did fit all the boxes for me. i could feel it.

basia 's is amazing, i hope the Cardano Foundation reaches out to them for some real graphic design work in the future!

good luck all, and to everyone who made us chuckle daily in the MEME thread, for the last month,… thank you all! :cardano:

((EDIT: and a huge thanks to the contributors of ADA to the reward!))

This is indeed a little confusing.

Also as a side note, I would like to add that this is the community’s first major contest. Any constructive feedback revive for this one we can use to make future competitions even better!

I’m sorry Josh can’t agree here with you. There were quite a few great contests from @Haskell-plus also from @rickymac with very good to fantastic organisation.


I agree 100% and I do apologies! Thank you for reminding me :+1::+1:

All is not lost @lordless.exile! The community comprises of over 10k users, feel free to lobby for votes :ballot_box: for the submission you feel is most deserving!

That’s true, there’ve been a few good contests. I believe Josh was emphasizing major, with enough submissions to break the judges will to participate.

Ive tried to organize them in this “thread,” and it almost killed me :rofl:, and it’s not even all of them, Still missing some MEMES from this thread

Next contest will be self organizing one, with draconian rules regard submissions. Not everyone was following the guidelines, but we did our best to try to include everyone.

I’ll continue organizing all the submissions here and pretty it up a but so we can celebrate everyone’s amazing work!

We reward the few, to celebrate the many!


I believe memes should be short, catchy, and hilarious.

But by your judgement none of these 3 made it even to top-10, which is disappointing.

If it makes you feel any better I would not have picked any of these for my top ten. They’re pretty much what you would expect anyone to think of, and many did post similar memes.

There is a chance that might make you feel worse I realise. Lol. But, it shouldn’t.

That’s a lot of effort to go to. I feel I have spent enough here. None of my top ten were in the top ones picked, though a couple of the authors of my favourites were, just not with what I would have considered their best memes. But the fun has been largely stolen from this for me and I don’t see much point in putting in effort to rally votes for a meme I think is only half decent anyway. So, thanks - but no thanks.

I came back on to remove my account and do not see an option to. If you could show me how to do so, it would be greatly appreciated.

I believe you were on of the people pushing it to be judged this way. I in no way wanted to do it, may I remind the community . My idea was to collect the strongest MEME from all 60 contestants and have the community judge based on likes. But you guys felt it would take too long and would require too much effort. You’ve all made a choice on how this contest was to be judged, either by speaking out or by not speaking out…so this is what we’re stuck with now.

The submissions are very strong :muscle:, don’t simply judge them by the MEMES…judge by contestants and how much they’ve put into the contest.

It’s a meme contest - not an author-of-memes contest. So, respectfully, I disagree that I should seek to judge overall input rather than the quality and originality of the memes themselves.

I did push for them to be judged by judges, and not by the community. And I have no qualms with your decisions - they are your decisions and I never expected them to align perfectly with my own, even if I didn’t expect them to be so disparate from what mine would have been. I was merely explaining why I don’t have the will to put in effort to conjure support for my favourite of the thirteen. At this point my vote alone will suffice.

Are you able to advise me on how to delete my account?

I can back up my reasoning, I didn’t simply choose the MEMES I liked. If you share your top 10 that you believe should have been in the finals but aren’t, I’ll explain in detail why each submission did not qualify.

At the end of the day, this contest was not about making few people richer in :ada: . It was about promoting Cardano.

My friend, as I said - I do not have a problem with your choices. And I see no reason to share my top ten, because I wasn’t a judge, so what my favourites were matter none whatsoever given that neither of them are in the finals. So, again, I ask you - can you help me with account deletion or not?

I want to be clear that I am not deleting my account because of your choices. I always intended to. I entered this contest purely because I needed money and was looking for an opportunity to earn some. I was always intending to remove my account afterwards because I am quite against the blockchain as a concept and see it as the greatest threat to individual freedom in history.
