- HOW THIS COMPETITION WORKS
The promoter of this competition is Centbee (Pty) Ltd, with Registration Number: 2017/014560/07 (“Centbee”). In these rules we refer to Centbee as the promoter. We refer to participants and winners as “you”.
Centbee will automatically enter your name into a draw each time you top up your Centbee wallet with Bitcoin SV (BSV) at a participating Pay@ retailer between 1 October 2019 (“opening date”) and 1 December 2019 (“the closing date”). “Top up” means you will create a Pay@ voucher in your Centbee wallet, and have the voucher barcode scanned, or the voucher number entered, by the cashier, at any participating retailer in South Africa, and then pay for the voucher at the retailer’s till point. The equivalent amount of Bitcoin SV is shortly thereafter credited (“loaded”) to your Centbee wallet. Participating retailers that accept Pay@ bill payments in South Africa are listed here .
Centbee reserves the right to extend the competition. Notice of this will be posted in these rules.
After the closing date, Centbee will select one winner by randomly drawing a name from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified by Centbee by calling the mobile number that was registered with their Centbee wallet.
The winner will win R10 000 (ten thousand rand only) in Bitcoin SV (“the Prize”) which will be sent to their Centbee wallet address. For purposes of these rules, Bitcoin SV will mean the cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin Satoshi Vision, Bitcoin SV, or BSV, all of which are interchangeable terms, and shall be valued at the most recently traded open market price as published in the Centbee app. Important note: Bitcoin SV is not the same as Bitcoin Core (BTC) or Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and is not interchangeable with these. You agree that the promoter is not responsible for fluctuations in the value of the Prize. As the value of Bitcoin SV is not centrally controlled or fixed, you understand that it may fluctuate according to supply and demand or any other market factors which influence price. The Prize will only be paid in Bitcoin SV at the prevailing exchange rate at the time the Bitcoin SV is sent to the winner’s Centbee wallet. No cash or other payments will be made. The prize is not exchangeable for cash or any other cryptocurrency by Centbee.
Bitcoin SV is not currently regarded as a financial instrument, and is not regulated in South Africa. Centbee is not a registered Financial Services Provider and is not providing investment advice.
