It's time to discover the official result of our contest
This Women's World Cup has been absolutely amazing and we hope you enjoyed this contest as we did.
Despite the less notoriety and media coverage enjoyed by this Women's World Cup compared to its men's equivalent, we were enthusiastic about the participation of many users. We are also delighted to have noticed that several ladies from Hive took an interest in this contest and even made excellent scores.
Let's start first with a few numbers about the contest
1. Participants and badges
There were a total of 330 users who registered for the contest.
Out of this group, 314 users demonstrated their predictive skills by successfully guessing at least 1 match result.
In total, these 314 participants placed 17750 bets being recognized as valid entries. Among these valid bets, 9407 badges were earned by those who accurately predicted match outcomes.
The contest's top 3 winners amassed 129 badges collectively. This implies that the remaining 311 players collectively earned 9278 badges.
2. Prize pool
The amount collected by @hivebuzz.pool was
- 6000 HIVE from the sponsors
- 343 HIVE from registrations
Therefore, the final prize pool before distribution is 6343 HIVE and can be checked here.
NOTE: We will use "floor 3rd decimal rounding" for any reward computation since we can not distribute more than we have.
Breaking the ties
As you have seen, this World Cup has been full of twists and turns. On several occasions, the classification was turned upside down, especially during the group stage, due to the unexpected results of certain matches.
This had the effect of creating a crowd at the top of the leaderboard with several participants having the same number of badges.
Remember that for this contest we introduced the concept of "speed factor" so the fastest bettors will take advantage
To reward those who take the most risk when betting [...] the betting time of the participant will decide, the winner being the fastest to have placed their bets throughout the competition.

We would like to give an honorable mention to @shamzy and @bombus for their excellent performance throughout the tournament. Being in the top 3 just escaped them as the betting speed factor definitely played a very important role in this contest. Anyway, congratulations on your fighting spirit and your fair play.
We also want to give a special mention to two Hive ladies who also have excellent performances throughout the contest and end up in the top 10. @funshee finishes in a remarkable 7th place (just 1 badge short of finishing up in the top 3) and @ifarmgirl finished in 9th place.
We are delighted to see that our ladies were able to show not only their interest but their predictive ability. After all, this contest was dedicated to them.
Girls, you rock!
