Here anyone can nominate Who you think is the most broken-hearted member of the sports world for last week, and then try to cheer them up or give them some advice.

This contest is for anyone in any Scorum domain and is designed to give everyone something fun to write about every week with a guaranteed minimum upvote income that you can count on. There are always fails and goofs in sports, so even if you have nothing else to write about you can find a subject for a Happy Moan-Day blog. Although this contest does have solid prizes, it is not about winning the contest and collecting the SCR it is about writing a steady weekly blog that will provide you with a constant and steady income stream. It is also about having fun, most people enjoy a chuckle about a funny fail, how many of us can help but laugh when someone slips and falls? In sports such gaffes can provide grounds for a funny blog as long as no one was seriously injured. Upset losses seem to be the easiest targets for Moan-Day blogs followed by managers, coaches and players who were released or who have otherwise lost their jobs. While not always funny it can be easier for the victim to take when a little light-hearted ribbing is applied, especially when followed by some timely words of encouragement or advice.

You all probably know by now that I have been expecting the markets to crash followed closely by a complete collapse of the global economy. The advent of COVID-19 seems to have been the pin that burst the first bubbles and began the descent, but before it could even start to accelerate toward recession territory we found out that there had been a complete collapse of the OPEC consortium, and the price of oil has plummeted and has yet to bottom out. I'm pretty sure that emergency measures are going to kick in soon to try to stop this slide and prop everything back up for a while longer, but how in the world can they ever expect to keep it up for long when the world is shutting down one Country at a time as the corona virus marches like a huge army of microscopic soldiers wrecking all industries and trade in its path?

So what does that mean for us? I'm not sure, sporting events are going to be called off or played without fans, and if that happens what will we write about? What will people place bets on? I have to believe that even in the midst of disaster, life will go on and some order will remain or it will return in short order after a brief period of chaos. Perhaps the central bankers will succeed somehow in propping up the economy for a little longer, who knows. But these events are going to affect us and we may have to get creative in order to survive it here on Scorum. There is a lot of history in sports to talk about, and there are lots of online games that we can branch off into and discuss if needed. But no matter what I believe that we all have enough imagination that in the event games do get cancelled we can still find enough to write about to keep Scorum operating.

Now I will talk about those predictions that I made 2 years ago for the future of Scorum, I have never wavered from those bold predictions and I'm not going to start now. Part of my prediction was for $100 SCR within 5 years, and we still have 3 years remaining.Part of my reasoning in that prediction was because I have expected a big recession or a depression within that time frame. I do not believe, like some people do, that cryptocurrency prices will follow the stock markets. I believe just the opposite because it is my opinion that cryptocurrencies were established with this very time in mind. The reason I believe that cryptos appear to be following the markets right now is because people with long positions are getting slaughtered and there are some major margin calls going out, investors who are caught up in it will have to liquidate some of their other assets to cover those positions. It will not be until things level out a little before cryptos can start to be ready to become that flight to safety that we were expecting. Right now all of the money is flying to cash and bonds, but that will change when the debt market also begins to collapse.

I believe that financial experts realized back in 2008 that they could not repair the economic system and that it was one day doomed to utter collapse and destruction. When that happened how were the wealthy and the banks going to preserve their wealth? How would they rebuild the system and what would represent a better system less prone to failure? The use of a commodity like gold for sure, but it is extremely hard to do massive international trade with metals and who is to say that we will not be able to mine the ocean floor or harvest asteroids for gold within the next 100 years? The world needed an encrypted digital currency that was not controlled by any government and thus could not be manipulated, and it had to be non-inflationary and fair for everyone. That currency could be Bitcoin, or some other cryptocurrency, or it could be something new that will soon be launched, but crypto just seems to me like the best choice to base a new financial system on. So I believe that very soon trillions of dollars worth of wealth are going to come pouring into the crypto market.

One of the things that I have thought about is that before long, probably less than two months, the Casinos are all going to have to shut their doors, any gambling that takes place is about to move online. Whether this will be permanent, or not, I don't know, but being in a Casino would be worse than riding on a cruise ship during this pandemic if you were trying to avoid catching the virus. I am also pretty sure that the use of cash and things like poker chips will be a big no no in the days ahead, to handle things like that would just be inviting the disease to take you away!

So this was my scenario, minus the pandemic. This is when we find out if I am correct and soon we may see whether Scorum receives adoption. I believe that there are about to be millions of people out of work, and most of those jobs are not coming back! Over the next few years automation is going to kick into high gear, and AI will be doing everything that it can be taught to do. People will have to find somewhere to earn money, and I'm pretty sure that money will come in the form of digital assets. Scorum has the best, or one of the best economic models in all of crypto, and if masses of people and investors were to start signing up for accounts then in the blink of an eye you would see the Scorum engine go to work and begin to crank out the kind of profits and income that we all know are possible or we wouldn't even still be here.

An alternate scenario, and one that would be terrible for us, is if none of the investment money comes into crypto for a long time, instead it stays on the sidelines and allows the job losses to take their toll and savings accounts to dry up. Doing this would mean that crypto hodlrs would be forced to start liquidating their holdings in order to buy the food and necessities they need to live. If that were to happen then the prices of cryptocurrencies would continue to drop until as much as possible has been squeezed out of the small time investors, and then the big boys will swoop in and buy all of the good projects up at dirt cheap prices.

I had hoped that this day wouldn't come in my lifetime, but since it appears to be here, or only months away, I hope that we get the first scenario and new blockchain adopters start coming into the crypto space in droves looking for a way to earn a little bit of cryptocurrency.

(This contest is all about Sports Losers, Fails, Muffs, Falls, Goofs, or anything else that would make a player, coach, fans or spectators moan and groan. It is meant to be funny and light-hearted so please, no post that would cause us to mourn like fatalities, or serious injuries, diseases or any other true personal tragedies. This is meant to be in fun, there are always funny fails that happen and there are losers that need to be cheered up. This is simply a way to cheer up all of those losers of the week who are trying to pull themselves back together again for the next competition.)

  1. The power of this competition is in recognition, by entering a blog in this contest you are sure to have some readers checking it out. I will up-vote every qualifying blog as soon as I see the link posted below so that it gets bumped up on the trending pages. My hope is that readers will soon begin to recognize the blog title and make it a practice to support the entries. To enter this contest you must write and publish your own blog with the Title "Happy Moan-day ______________!" Fill in the blank with the name of a person, group, place, or team. This must be concerning something that has happened during the previous week prior to the contest blogs posting. So this current contest is for sports-related items that have happened between last Monday a week ago and yesterday, Midnight Sunday.
  2. Next include a photo, meme, short video clip, a screenshot or something similar that best represents the subject that you used to fill in the title blank. Make sure that you have usage rights and provide any necessary links
  3. Now you need to write a blog of at least 450 but no more than 2,000 words to describe what happened and who was involved, as well as the reason that you are nominating them for moaners of the week.
  4. Provide a link back to this blog somewhere in your Moanful Monday Blog.
  5. Last you must say something at the end, one final quote or comment that is meant to cheer up or encourage the subject of your blog. This could be something simple like "C'est la vie," or a quote from a famous author or poet, a proverb or religious text, or best of all your very own words of wisdom or consolation. You are welcome to have your own signature encouraging comment and use it on all of your Moan-day blogs, or give a different comment or quote every week that best fits the situation.
  6. Once your Moanful Monday blog has been posted then leave a link to it in the comment section below so that I will know that you have entered the contest and I can then visit and up-vote your blog.
  7. Your blog can be posted at any time before midnight Sunday night where you live, but the content must be from the previous weeks sporting events.
  8. You may enter this contest using any language, just post your blog in the native domain and provide links as stated above. Just know that I will be using a translator in order to read and judge your entry which may affect my ability to properly and fairly do so depending on the accuracy of the translator that I use.
  9. The first three entries posted by different account holders and that meet all of the above requirements will receive 100% up-votes. The next two qualifying entries by any account holder will receive 50% up-votes and all subsequent entries will receive 35% up-votes. You are free to post multiple entries but each new entry must cover a different sport to add a little variety to the contest.
  10. You may post your blog translated into as many languages as you like but the qualifying word count will be done in English and only one translation will be used for the word count. So if your entry is posted in another language, even if on a domain other than the English Domain, then I will use an automatic translator in order to convert it to English in order to do the qualifying word count.

Notes on Judging the Contest

Several factors go into judging the Happy Moan-Day blogs, here are a few of them.

  • The blog is unique and engaging, it keeps the readers interest.
  • The blog is fun and light hearted, it leaves the reader with a smile on their face.
  • The reader learns something about the subject from reading the blog.
  • The advice or quotes at the end are appropriate and helpful to the subject of the blog.
  • While all of the words in the blog will count toward qualification, only those words that actually add to the story are used for judging, fluff words are ignored for this part of the contest.
  • Spelling and grammar are not directly judged in the contest, but readability is. If the judge can't read or make sense of the story then it is hard to judge it's quality.


Tiebreakers include how many of the other contest blogs you read and support and your overall engagement and activity on Scorum. The goal of this contest is to help support and build good blogging members that will in turn help build and grow the Scorum Platform. In a close decision the contestant that appears most active on Scorum will usually get the nod from the judge or judges. If there is nothing else to clearly set one entry apart from another, then the judge or judges will be looking for anything that the contestants have done recently to boost Scorum or help another blogger.

Everyone is encouraged to read and support as many of the Moanful Monday blogs as possible during the week. I will try to get these blog posts out early every Monday so that you can begin posting your blogs. I encourage you to write about an event that happens during the week and save it as a draft so that you will be ready to post it on Monday as soon as the new contest blog has been added.
