VOTE: Steem Silver Round

VOTING IS SOOOOOO TIGHT in the Steem Silver Round design competition!

Have YOU voted?

If not, I would be SUPER chuffed (aka: stoked, excited, thrilled) if you would consider voting for my design HERE.


Coin like rendeng.


Top round designed by @bearone, bottom round designed by @welshstacker

This year marks the THIRD iteration of this .999 pure silver piece.

If you have a moment I would like to tell you about my design, and why I believe it captures the current spirit of our blockchaincenter>

y rounound features phoenix rising from the ashes. Steem value has been low, hard fork 20 got us down, but as we all keep steeming ahead, the hope is the platform and Steem will rise to bigger and better things.

The words at the top of the round are from Seneca, a Roman philosopher/statesman. Ignis aurum probat, miseria fortes homines. In English this translto:

β€œAs gold gold is tempered by fire, so strong men are tempered by suffering". The meaning is that in order to become pure gold, the original gold-bearing ore must go through the tempering process of fire; the analogy being that for a man strong in spirit, adversity and suffering are the tempering agents necessary to refine his character and bring out his true potential. Source

In the case of Steem and Steemit, there have been challenges, but ultimately our communities have become stronger as a result.☺center>

here re are currently three designs left in the competition. One submitted by @welshstscker - also a Phoenix! He and I weirdly and independently came up with the same idea! (I completed and shared mine FIRST before knowing Welshie was working on something similar). 😁 The other design is an intricate sea themed shield crd by @edxserveruverus.

As @welshstacker has pointed out, the first Steem round had a water theme. The second round had and earth theme. It would be pretty cool if this year’s round highlighted another element - Fire. πŸ”₯ ☺️

It would also be cool to feature a different artist/designer for each year’s round. I would be so honored if the Steemit community selected my design for 9.

Thank you so much for reading my post and for casting your vote HERE.

I voted (by clicking the upvote button in the article under your design). I noticed that others may have commented that they like a specific did not upvote the design. I am looking forward to the 2019 steem silver round, @dfinney!

22.07.2019 14:00

Yeah, the whole thing gets a bit muddled. Or someone will say, I like design 2 but the position of the designs shits with upvote value so what looks like two one day might be one or three a different day.πŸ˜„ Oh well. 😊

22.07.2019 14:03

Good luck!! I went and voted! I like the phoenix idea and how it relates to the state of steemit. :)
