Running My First Lottery: Pre-Pre-Alpha

Ok, so I've really been slacking on developing my lottery, but then I realized I actually don't need working code to run them.  I will do this one manually to get the data I need.  Hopefully this will fuel the fire to get more done. 

We are currenty on:
Bitcoin Block <code>545071</code>

The target for this lottery will be:
Bitcoin Block <code>545215</code>

This means the winner will be selected in about 24 hours.   
144 blocks * 10 minutes per = 1440 minutes = 24 hours

If you want to join the lottery simply reply with the first line:
>#ticket

Whoever guesses closest to Bitcoin block hash 545215 is the winner.
There can only be one winner.  No one can select the same hash.  
If you want to pick your own ticket reply with:

>#ticket [hash code]

example:
> #ticket 14069429150ABCBF244C4C2FB2C4C46A49C93CA9457263ECD9EBB176DE3A58BB

https://passwordsgenerator.net/sha256-hash-generator/
Use this website if you want to turn your favorite word or phrase into a ticket.  
Users who do not select their own ticket will get a ticket of their username hashed using SHA-256.

![lotto ticket hash.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmWPAP25T5FMvucLJDyasYuRuZXrewooXG9ayTMjZh4UyF/lotto%20ticket%20hash.png)

![SHA-256 bitcoin pow lottery.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmUp4zJBgWAtYF4jEmsWGrgMVa1S4BCjEV3aYo1oktPFjU/SHA-256%20bitcoin%20pow%20lottery.jpg)

Tickets may only contain hex values (number system base 16):
> 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E

-----

Your ticket does not need to contain all 32 characters.  If you don't pick 32 characters I will assume the leading characters are zeros.   

Examples:
> #ticket ABBACABBA
#ticket 1337DAD
#ticket 80085

These are all valid tickets. 

For frame of reference, you would have a one in a million chance of picking the first 5 numbers correctly.  

> 1/2^(5*4) = 1/2^20 = <code>1/1,048,576 </code>
(each hex value counts as 4 bits) 
(each bit has a 1/2 chance of being correct)

----

This is an honor system lottery, which makes it [totally legal](https://steemit.com/lotto/@edicted/research-legal-definition-of-gambling) by eliminating consideration, and even moreso by not guaranteeing a prize.  Your buy in to the lottery is paid for in reputation.  If you want your reputation back you will pay the winner.  

Because this is only a test the cost of purchasing back your reputation is 0.003 SBD.  This is a very very very low stakes lottery.

As the host, it is my job to choose who is allowed in the lottery and who isn't based on reputation.  Because the stakes are so low, and this is a test, and I have zero reputation information, I will allow everyone to join.

Those who participate in these tests will personally receive increased reputation from me when the app goes live. 

Help me out, friends.  Join my lottery.

haha orly? I'm going to blacklist you when you can't pay up haha.  Or maybe I'll just send you the money.  A third of a cent is pretty steep but I think I can swing it.

Alright gang, not many people entered the lottery, but plenty for a test.  I'll keep running these tests in the future and try to pick up some traction. 

Here's a consolidated list of everyone's ticket:

We're currently on bitcoin block <code>545195</code> so 20 more blocks to go.  Whoever guesses closest wins.  The most significant digits are on the right.
