10 KMD [GRAPHICS] 51% Attack graphic


perhaps, but still.. c'est la vie


yeah, in case they replace it that would be fine!

I was just thinking if there is person 4 and 5 designing (as @Daniel mentioned they want to wait for at least 5 proposals) but as they didn't say that it is closed already other members are still working on it … what could be avoided, no?


Hey all,

yes, sorry we had to go ahead and post that article. We will still wait for 5 people to submit and award a bounty but, unfortunately, we won't actually use the graphic. But we'll still keep it open and pay the bounty, as promised. Apologies that the winning image won't actually be published.

In general, it looks like we'll be moving away from posting bounties for graphics here on KIN. A few main reasons for that. First, we're changing our visual representation of Komodo (for example, see the graphics for the "5 pillars of blockchain" posts).

Second, we've just started working with a design agency. They'll be helping us with web design, visual assets, and some other design stuff. So we're hoping to leverage that for graphics.

In the meantime, I think we'll be handling all graphics in-house.

Thanks for all the work and contributions!



thanks for the reply.

but isn't it kind of superfluous to wait for other members creating sth that will never have a use case?? as you said that graphics will handled in-house it would make sense to close the bounty and move on?

what about just distributing the 10KMD to all three contributors equally, that sounds fair doesn't it?

@Daniel, @Brenny, @Wilms


Nope, that doesn't sound fair at all.

I said in the original post that we would wait for 5 people to submit, pick our favorite, and then award the bounty to the winner. And that's exactly what we will do.

It would have been ideal if we could have used the graphic and published it online. Unfortunately, things didn't turn out that way.

I'm sorry for that but we never promised we'd publish anything-- just that we'd award a 10 KMD bounty after 5 people submit. We will stick to our word.

Thanks for your understanding.


Again, please remember that KIN isn't just about paying people to do freelance graphic design work for us. That's not the idea here.


sure, no problem! thanks for your response


Thanks for the response daniel I think this is fair and understandable :slight_smile:


absolutely – I said no word about payment, but just have the feeling that it is strange asking for sth (or stick to it) that you even confirmed it will never be used. but no problem, I'm looking forward to the results of other members. just wanted to share my thoughts. :v:


oh, and just to add – I meant to distribute the bounty like 3.33 for each of us (not 10).


Is this still going on?


I think there is still time for a few submissions. The original post states there has to be minimum 5 participants before the award can be given :slight_smile:
I would love to see what you come up with


This is my idea!


I should've checked the dates before I took the time to make something but I just wanted a chance at the bounty and to be the 5th entry lol


cool idea here but needs to be more polished... and delayed proof of work / security works by recycling bitcoin's energy and backing up...

so perhaps it would be a set of scales one a set of scales if that makes sense? the point is that it creates a restore point or checkpoint on bitcoin which has a huge hashrate (i.e. huge amount of energy being invested in it).


This isn't polished enough to use... and not sure of the concept itself. See my comment about how dpow is recycling bitcoin's energy to create a checkpoint on bitcoin.



Warming up before the infographic contest,
I create an infographic about 51% attack.


Another design concept about 51% attack

dPoW vs PoW

I am also making a design concept about KMD. who are immune to Mantisa Attack, Sybil Attack and Knapshack Attack, it's just that I'm still learning how to describe the attack.

Thanks @Brenny for your love, do you love me :slight_smile: ?


@Brenny is ths still open?


Yes. This is still open.
