So, what is Nugget’s 12 Days of Crypto?


Understanding Nugget’s 12 Days of Crypto is super easy. All you need to know is this:

  • On each of the first three Sundays of December (i.e., the 1st, 8th, and 15th), we’ll post a question across our socials—Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
  • From the time of posting until 6:00pm (AEDT) on the following Thursday (i.e., the 5th, 12th, and 19th), you can answer the corresponding week’s question by commenting on the relevant post.
  • Strictly one weekly entry per person. That means if you, for example, answer through Twitter on a given week, you cannot post a different answer through Facebook or Instagram. We’ll be watching!
  • After each Thursday night deadline, we here at Nugget’s News will select four lucky winners.
  • These winners will be announced across our socials on each of the first three Fridays of December (i.e., the 6th, 13th, and 20th). Keep your eyes peeled for that Friday winner announcement!
  • Please note, only those currently living in Australia are eligible for Nugget’s 12 Days of Crypto prizes.


Just so we’re clear: four winners per week for a three-week period. 12 winners all up. Capiche?


What’s up for grabs?

12 prize bundles worth over $500 each!

You’ve already seen what our outstanding sponsors are each pledging to Nugget’s 12 Days of Crypto, now it’s time to see how we’re divvying all these prizes up. Also, now is a good time to tell you that we too are chiming in with a number of our own prizes. Take a look below to see what the 12 prize winners will be receiving.


Quite the haul, no? We’ve worked hard with our generous sponsors to ensure all 12 winners will receive prizes they can actually get value out of. Indeed, these are no flimsy Christmas cracker prizes we’re talking about—miniature plastic comb, anyone?


Week #1: How will you explain bitcoin to your family over Christmas?








So, there’s three questions. Got it. Can I please know the three windows in which I can answer each question? Sure thing. We’ve listed them below for you. Remember that 6:00pm (AEDT) is the time of all three deadlines. 

  • Week #1: December 1st – 5th
  • Week #2: December 8th – 12th
  • Week #3: December 15th – 19th


And the winners will be announced on the Friday of the same week, correct? Spot on. The four winners of the first, second, and third question will be announced via our socials on December 6th, 13th, and 20th, respectively.

Am I more likely to win if I answer towards the start of the week? No. The timing of your submission is irrelevant. Just make sure you enter before 6:00pm (AEDT) on Thursday of the relevant week.

I know I’m only allowed to enter once for each question. But can I duplicate my answer across multiple Nugget’s News social media accounts? Does it help my chances of winning? Whilst you’re welcome to submit the same answer across our channels, it’ll have no effect on your chances of winning. We’ll consider your answer regardless of where it’s posted—provided it’s submitted before the relevant deadline.

I answered earlier in the week and I’ve since thought of what I believe is a higher quality response. Can I delete my earlier entry and submit a new one? No. We feel it would be unfair on existing entrants if you were able to delete your earlier entry and submit a new one—which may or may not be inspired by another entrant’s answer. We hope you can appreciate where we’re coming from.

It’s Friday and I’ve just heard about Nugget’s 12 Days of Crypto. I think I have a great response for the previous question. Will you please consider it? Unfortunately, we cannot. It just wouldn’t be fair on eligible entrants. Assuming there are still questions remaining, we encourage you to enter next week!

I already won a prize in the first or second week. If I enter again, am I eligible to win? Whilst you’re welcome to answer questions after having already won a prize earlier in the Nugget’s 12 Days of Crypto competition, you unfortunately will not be eligible to win another prize. Christmas is about sharing, after all!

I’m a 15-year-old die-hard crypto enthusiast. Am I allowed to enter Nugget’s 12 Days of Crypto? Absolutely! The competition is open to all ages. Please note, however, that the full functionality and value of various Nugget’s 12 Days of Crypto prizes are accessible only to persons over the age of 18.

I was chosen as a winner! What happens now? Good on you! On the Friday you’re announced a winner, we’ll reach out to you through the social media channel you used to submit your winning answer. We’ll then discuss the logistics regarding the distribution of your prizes. Please note that prizes will be distributed after Christmas.

How are the winners chosen? Our founder Alex Saunders and other Nugget’s News team members will sift through each eligible submission and select what they deem the four best answers to the relevant week’s question. We’re looking for quality and creativity above all else. Remember, just because an answer is lengthy, doesn’t automatically mean it’s quality!

How do you decide who gets what bundle? Once we select the four weekly winners, we then allocate each of them a prize bundle at random.

I just got told I need to send funds to be eligible for Nugget’s 12 Days of Crypto. Is this true? No, it most definitely is not. Odds are the person telling you this is a Grinch trying to steal Christmas—and your money! Please understand that we do not require you to provide us with any personal details or funds in order to be eligible for Nugget’s 12 Days of Crypto. Notify us if someone is telling you otherwise. We’ll deal with them!
