I came across something particularly interesting on Twitter yesterday. By reviewing your portion of nachos through a new Android:iOS application, you can earn 1 Bitcoin.
I’m not talking about splitting said Bitcoin with multiple reviewers, just one person will be picked randomly and receive 1 Bitcoin.
The application is called iNacho, and it’s an application for….well, you know, nacho lovers! Although I do think nacho enthusiasts qualify as well.
We’ll get into the application itself in a bit, but I want to share the rules of participation first , so you know what is required of you :
1. Review nachos. Enough said.
2. Take a picture before you dig into the nachos, try them, and then review them selecting the picture you took before.
3. Share your reviews and the contest with your friends. It’s in your own best interest because no winner will be selected if not enough reviews are submitted.
However, there are also some contest details you should be aware of :
1. Valid nacho reviews include a picture, a star rating, a location, and various toppings as provided by the app. Description is not required but appreciated. Reviews must also be done at the time of service and cannot be from a past experience. They also must be at an establishment, not in your own home. Finally, they cannot be duplicate reviews for the same establishment by the same person. Outside of these guidelines, iNacho reserves the right to determine what is a valid review.
2. Invalid nacho reviews will not be counted towards the end goal (100 reviews) or the drawing for the prize.
3. Valid nacho reviews must be from the United States of America.
4. Winner will be selected from a random drawing of all of the valid reviews that have been entered in the time period allotted. Multiple entries are accepted and will increase each person’s odds of winning.
5. Prize awarded to the winner is 1 bitcoin. Winner will be contacted via email for their receiving bitcoin wallet address (public key). Once this is received, we will transfer 1 bitcoin to the winner.
6. If minimum number of reviews (100) is not reached within the allotted time (90 days) then no winner will be selected.
Alright, now that we’ve got all the technicalities out of the way, let’s take a look at the iNacho application itself.
iNacho lets users find and write reviews of nacho-fests. Whether you have them in a public place , or just at home, is entirely up to you. Although it is better to have them away from home of course!
In order to write reviews, there is an easy sign-in process through Facebook, which is easy and fast, so no issues there.
When you submit a nacho-fiesta review, you have several factors to take into account : location, a picture , 1-5 star rating of the meal in general and the cheese and/or sour cream rating.
If you want to supply more details, you can also disclose the type and color of cheese you had, whether or not you had beans with your nachos, and if there was any meat involved.
While testing out this application for the review on both of my Android devices, I ran into some very odd issues.
My phone, a Cubot GT99, could install iNacho from the Google Play Store, but the sign-in through Facebook doesn’t work. Even after clearing cache, reinstalling, no success.
However, on my tablet, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, I couldn’t install iNacho through the Google Play Store and had to use a Chrome extension to get it, but the Facebook sign-in worked fine.
Maybe it has something to do with different versions of Android, but it worked eventually, and that’s the most important thing.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t check any reviews of nearby places, as nachos aren’t that big over here in Belgium, unless at the movie theatre.
However, as I’m not really a nacho person, I will definitely giving nachos another try now, and will send in a picture of it , even though I do not qualify for the competition.
