Competition — pitch cheqd



Winner: 5,000 $CHEQ
Runner-up: 2,000 $CHEQ
Competition: 2 minutes cheqd pitch
Duration: 2 weeks — from Fri 27 Jan to Fri 10 Feb at 11am UTC

Thanks to your efforts, Fraser will be heading to the European Blockchain Convention in Barcelona, Feb 15–17, 2023. And, the boss has already prepared and submitted a killer pitch to the EBC awards.

What does this have to do with a competition, you ask? 🤔

You’ll recall our SSI in 60 seconds competition from last year, where the community had a chance to explain self-sovereign identity using memes, videos and infographics. This time, it is all about how you pitch cheqd.

Share with us how you pitch cheqd to your connections, friends, and colleagues. You can be as serious or as funny as you like, and throw in a meme, a video or infographic.

Here are the rules:

  1. The pitch has to be done in 2 minutes or less
  2. You can only submit one entry
  3. Tweets (including tweetstorms), voice messages, videos, and images are accepted on Twitter, Discord, and Telegram if you use the hashtag #cheqdPitch

Our team will forward all submissions (even if just a screenshot) to the
#🎤-pitch channel on Discord and pick their two favourite pitches.

Winner will receive 5,000 $CHEQ and the runner up 2,000 $CHEQ.

This competition will run for two weeks starting Friday 27th January and will end on Friday 10th February at 11am (that’s the time we’ll stop accepting entries to the competition). 🎁

Good luck and we’re looking forward to seeing your pitch.

It has been a while since we ran our last ‘official competition’ (I’m aware that Matt is running some unofficial competitions during weekdays late at night — naughty naughty Matt) so we thought it would be fun to see how good your understanding of Self-Sovereign Identity is.

Join our SSI in 60 seconds or less competition!

To participate simply follow these steps:

The video, infographic, or meme has to be on topic. You need to explain what Self-sovereign identity is in 60 seconds or less. If you’re creating an infographic, people should not spend more than 60 seconds to read it, if it’s a video it can’t be longer than 60 seconds.

We will pick the winner based on creativity and clarity of the explanation, so focus on being able to summarise what SSI is. Remember, you can use facts, stories, analogies, examples, use cases… be free and creative!

Get inspired by our video below.

6 Winners

We will select TWO winners for each category (video, infographic, and meme). We will pick our favourite one and the other will be picked based on the amount of engagement/interaction the entry had.

Prize: 1,500 $CHEQ per winner

Winners will be announced on the 11th October at 11pm GMT+1.

Additional information

  1. You can submit as many entries as you want in any category
  2. You must submit an original entry
  3. We reserve the right to use any of the entries in our community, presentation, or any other material that we see fit
  4. NSFW materials will not be accepted/considered
  5. We reserve the right to decide on giving out a surprise reward if our community grows in number by the end of the competition

Get ready, set, GO CREATE cheqmates. Good luck.

Community… you’ll be able to claim your Mission Two rewards very soon!

Hey, cheqmates! We originally planned on making Mission Two, Stage One claims for our airdrop available this week (week starting 14th March 2022), but based on the feedback that we have received, we’ll move it tothe middle of next week, 23rd March 2022, making it easier for you to claim all of your rewards in one go!

Mission Two: Reminder & Update


To be eligible for the rewards, a token wallet must already have been staking the following minimum amounts at the time the snapshots were taken:

  1. 10 ATOM: Snapshot taken at 10 March 2022 17:29:05 UTC

The eligibility criteria for staking $ATOM, $OSMO and $JUNO remains the same. For a more detailed view, please visit this page.

The eligibility criteria for staking $CHEQ and adding liquidity to the pool remains the same, but now you know when the snapshots took place and when the next one will take place. For a more detailed view, please visit this page.

Classic #Cosmos

Howdy community,

Thank you so much for your participation in our first mission. The engagement was fantastic and at the same time a bit overwhelming. Let me be very candid, we didn’t expect so much engagement! That’s why we had to pull the plug on day two, as we had overreached our maximum number of entries.

If you feel there’s something wrong with your airdrop please raise a ticket on the following link and we’ll cheq it for you:

Here are some cool numbers from Mission one.

Total number of entries: 25,729 (max number of participants was originally 20,000)

Eligible entries: ~15,500

Top 3 reasons for not being eligible:

  • Didn’t provide a cheqd wallet address (many provided ETH and BTC)
  • Didn’t follow us on Twitter
  • Didn’t join us on Telegram and/or Discord

Wrong wallet address:

  • ~9,000 people didn’t provide a wallet address
  • ~30 people provided the help text as their wallet address
  • >20 people provided a truncated cheqd wallet address (i.e. didn’t copy the FULL address “cheqd1xxx….xxx
  • 1 person used >70 fake email addresses to have multiple entries
  • 1 person (possibly the same person) used >90 fake email addresses
  • 1 person shared a wallet’s MNEMONIC! 😩

Bonus: >50 individuals provided more than one wallet address from different networks linked to the same account


  • >8,000 people didn’t follow us on Twitter


  • ~9,000 people didn’t join our Telegram group and/or Discord

Busiest day: February 23rd

Number of countries with at least one entry: 162

Top three countries with most entries:

  • Indonesia
  • Vietnam
  • Nigeria

Countries that participated in our 1st Mission

Our community also grew a lot:

  • Twitter: from ~25,000 to ~46,000
  • Telegram: from ~12,000 to ~26,000
  • Discord: from maybe 30 to ~15,000

In a nutshell, we only have to thank you for the support and engagement.

The reason for social-task based airdrop

We wanted everyone to have a little bit of $CHEQs to participate in our second Mission. The rewards are higher and also requires more involvement with Cosmos.

Cosmos, The Internet of Blockchains, is an ecosystem of interconnected apps and services. cheqd was built on Cosmos SDK so we’re part of this ever-growing ecosystem.

Therefore, we want to give back to the community. Either through the airdrop or by getting more people to know about Cosmos’ ecosystem.

First Mission. Status: Accomplished.

Airdrop reward

If you completed every task of the Mission, including referring a friend, you should have received 250 $CHEQs in your cheqd wallet.

Voting: JUNO is the Winner

If you completed all the tasks AND voted for Juno, you should have received an additional 50 $CHEQs.

Top three projects:

  1. Juno
  2. Secret Network
  3. OmniFlix

Ok, I got 250 $CHEQs (or 300), what’s next?

You should definitely stake your CHEQ tokens, and participate in our mission to build a decentralised governance system for digital identity. In addition to that, you can participate in the Osmosis DEX liquidity pools for CHEQ:OSMO (pool #602) or CHEQ:ATOM (pool #617).

Read this blog post on Liquidity Pool for more information on what it is and how you can participate in one.

Mission Two - Are you ready?

Mission Two is broken into two stages.

First stage - Cosmos

ATOM (block height 9703992), OSMO (block height 3534866), and JUNO (block height 2223587) chains on Thursday, 10th March 2022. For more information please visit this page. If you had been staking at least the following amounts…

  1. 10 ATOM
  2. 20 OSMO
  3. 20 JUNO

…you will be eligible to claim an airdrop of CHEQ tokens some time on the week commencing Monday 14th March on We’ll let you know when the airdrop claim is live.

You will get a reward for each of the completed tasks above.

More $CHEQ for you to stake and especially to participate in our Liquidity Pools.

Note: The amount you need to stake is counted across all validators, not just a single validator.

Second Stage - cheqd

We really incentivise you to help cheqd by participating in our Liquidity Pools. To be eligible for more airdrops, do the following:

  1. Stake at least 100 $CHEQ — you can do it on any validator, with any amount, just make sure that the total amount staked is a 100 $CHEQ or more
  2. Add at least 250 $CHEQ and the equivalent in OSMO on Liquidity Pool 602 (i.e. CHEQ:OSMO with a 50/50 balance)
  3. Add at least 250 $CHEQ and the equivalent in ATOM on Liquidity Pool 617 (i.e. CHEQ:ATOM with a 50/50 balance)

For each of the tasks above that you complete, you will receive a reward. In other words, if you want to receive the maximum reward, you simply need to stake and participate in both Liquidity Pools.

You should be eligible to claim the reward on the same rewards page.


  1. If you completed all the tasks on Mission One, you should have been airdropped already. cheq out your cheqd wallet.
  2. Mission Two starts today Thursday 10th March 2022
  3. If you were already staking 10 $ATOM, $20 OSMO, and $20 JUNO before Thursday, 10th March 2022 — you’ll receive a reward PER chain. To use an example, if you were staking some $ATOM but not $OSMO or $JUNO, you’ll receive a one of three rewards available, whilst if you had staked $ATOM, $OSMO and $JUNO you’ll receive all three rewards
  4. Claim your Mission Two stage one airdrop sometime on the week commencing Monday 14th March 2022 — we’ll let you know when the site is live
  5. Add your airdrop to our Liquidity Pool 602 and Liquidity Pool 617, and stake 100 $CHEQ. More details on the deadline for this will be mentioned on the rewards site.
  6. Claim your Mission Two stage two airdrop — we’ll let you know the exact date soon
  7. Get ready for Mission Three

Final thoughts

Airdrops are not simple or easy to run. We get thousands of people trying to game the rules. It took us 3 more days than we originally planned to sort out all the wrong information people used in their entries, cleanse all the thousands of duplicate entries AND to give some people a second chance.

A good example of this, we clearly stated that you must provide a cheqd wallet address to be eligible for the airdrop. Surprise, surprise, we had more than 700 entries that provided a range of other wallet addresses (cosmos, osmo, juno, regen, umee, etc.).

Instead of simply removing them, we decided to convert all these wallets to cheq, as we appreciate the effort people have put to spread the word about cheqd.

But… and there’s always ‘buts’… we could easily see that many people tried to pull a fast one on us and in fact provided different network addresses for the same wallet. Let’s be frank, my frens, our team has identity experts, we can’t be fooled that easily.

Going through this experience, we see that projects running airdrops are crying out for a better identity solution, so we might explore this opportunity and help out other projects that are thinking about doing airdrops.

And, that’s it folks… if you haven’t already, follow us on Twitter, join our Telegram group and Discord server for more information. Come and say hi!

Cosmos Community Airdrop



For the Cosmonauts and our community members in the USA, we’re sorry to say that you won’t be eligible for this airdrop due to regulatory uncertainty. As you are aware, the USA is a big market for us and we want to enter it with a clean bill of health. We’re thinking in ways to get you involved, so watch this space.

Hi community!

Back in December 2021, when everything was locked down in the UK, we ran our first Rewards Program. The goal back then was to reward our early community members, people that believed in our mission and helped us shape our network, grow our community, and educate our Telegram members and Twitter followers.

December was nuts. The engagement in our Telegram group and Twitter was so high that I went insane for a few weeks. And, I personally want to go insane again, so we’re pleased to announce our new Cosmos Community Airdrop!

This may or may not be our Head of Marketing & Community

This time we want the #IBCGang and the #Cosmonauts to be part of it.


Well, back then we were so focused on getting our network ready and live that we missed out on how engaged and loyal the Cosmos community is. My bad. 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

A journey into the cosmos

Now, we invite you to join us in an adventure into the Cosmos. We’re looking to recruit Cosmonauts to help us reclaim ownership and full control of our data. We believe you should own your data, take it wherever and use it however you want. Our Cosmos Community Rewards will consist of three missions and… they will all be linked!

First mission

The socials — we want the whole Cosmos community to benefit from this program. However, we’re well aware that not everyone in the community knows about us, so to maximise reach we’ll kick-off with a follow us, invite your friends and share our name with your contacts.

This mission will officially start on Wednesday 23rd February and end on Wednesday 9th March at 11.45pm. It’s good to point out that to be fair with our Telegram community, we gave them a head start on the 22nd of February.

Due to the massive amount of interest, we’ll have to cap to around 20,000 Cosmonauts. As soon as we hit this number, we’ll consider this first mission accomplished.

One of the tasks to complete the mission involves choosing another Cosmos project. We will add an extra reward for everyone that votes for the project that ends up with the most votes. We recommend you to invite your friends from other Cosmos projects to participate and vote.


This may or may not be our Head of Marketing & Community

Second mission

Oh, the classic network snapshot.

Wait a minute, is that why you wanted us to invite our friends for the first airdrop? So they could participate in LP and get snaps… Oooooh.

Second mission

We’ll provide more details when the first mission is over. But… the rewards for this mission will be higher. 😉

Third mission

This one will be fun. I’m very excited about it, but our CTO asked me to keep it a secret. 🙊

More information will be shared when the second mission is over. However, stay tuned, this one will be amazing.

Nice, but... how much will the rewards be?

I can’t say it now, but you won’t be disappointed, ser.

Wise words from Yoda

Are you ready to help us in the fight against the dark forces that hold our data, and reclaim ownership and full control of our data? Take your data wherever and use it however you want. Be a rebel and join us in the Data Wars!
