Define ‘World Domination’ on SLictionary for a $500 prize

What does the term “World Domination” mean to you? Popularity? Military conquest? A large social media following? Mass fame? Or something else entirely? If you think you have an original definition for World Domination, here’s your chance to dominate the SLictionary Word Bounty polls and earn yourself $500 for the trouble. But get in quick because the contest ends this Saturday night.

Go straight to the contest by clicking here.

“Word Bounties” are regular contests by creative word definitions and the dictionary app SLictionary. It’s a great Bitcoin app because anyone can use it anywhere in the world. You don’t have to have any knowledge of Bitcoin, finance, or alt-finance to join in. As founder and CEO Jack Pitts said, “even your nonagenarian Grandma can onboard herself to Bitcoin (if she’s any good).”

Why is this particular contest special? Well, the record-setting prize money for starters of the World Domination contest is $504.40, sponsored by nChain CEO Christen Ager-Hanssen. There are many others up for grabs, too, though the prize is usually between a few cents and $5 (for example, you can create a definition for the term “Christen Ager-Hanssen” itself and win $4).

Having wit and originality helps, though SLictionary says all you need is “a faint interest in words and a competitive spirit” to make some money. If you’re reading this far, you probably qualify for that. You don’t have to pay anything to join in, so a good definition could be your first-ever BSV. The most talented definition wins.

“The record-setting World Domination bounty really shows off the power of our own-your-own-data dictionary product,” Pitts says. “Mr. Ager-Hanssen, a newspaper magnate, will have what he’s always wanted: a majority ownership share of a phrase in the English lexicon which can generate him passive cash-flows in perpetuity. He will have cornered the market on World Domination by Monday, LITERALLY 😉 … or hell, just put up another $500 for the wink emoji on Word Bounty and corner that market too! It’s possible on the world’s most sporting dictionary!”

If you’re already a BSV user, you can log in to SLictionary with a HandCash wallet. If you’re not, you can create an account with a regular email address. The app recommends adding an image, audio file, or an original example sentence to make your entry stand out.

Here’s a video showing how to do it:

Allowing users who aren’t already Bitcoin users is part of SLictionary’s onboarding drive for 2023. Of course, if you win a Word Bounty contest, you’ll need to get your own BSV wallet to collect the prize money, but by then you’ll want to anyway, right?

Keep using SLictionary even after the contest

If you have a new word you’d like to define, you can also create your own bounty and set the prize money (you’ll have to provide that). Maybe there’s a slang word you don’t really get, or maybe you just want to see people get creative with a term that’s already popular.

SLictionary uses Bitcoin’s online micropayment economy concept to earn revenue and payout to users, similar to other BSV social networks like Twetch and LaMint. You can search for existing and already-defined words for a cent or vote on other people’s definitions you like.

“Word Barons” are the people who sponsor Bounties. “WordSmiths” are the creative ones who define words. It’s an educational, fun, and gamified way to play with words and make some money along the way. Or maybe even achieve… world domination.
