$5,000 HAPI Buy&HODL competition

, August 20, 2021

You, who bought crypto a few years ago and still not planning to sell it. You, who’s hodling on for dear life despite the market rallies. Your time has come. 

We’re full of HAPIness to announce the hodlers competition on CEX.IO with a total prize fund of $5,000 HAPI tokens!

👉 From August, 23 to September, 6 👈


  • Buy at least 2 HAPI tokens before August 30, 2021.
  • HODL them on your CEX.IO account through September 6, 2021
  • Get a chance to win up to $1,200 🤩

How to join the contest 

Just do what you like — buy HAPI on CEX.IO and HODL it. Like never before! 😎

Once you buy at least 2 HAPI tokens via our Instant Buy service or on the Trade page, you become a participant in the HAPI hodlers Contest. 

Then, just keep these tokens on your CEX.IO account through September 6. During this time you can buy more HAPI and increase your chances to win the main prize — $1,200 in HAPI tokens.
On September 7, at 00:00 UTC we’ll take a snapshot of all participants’ balances. We’ll count the total amount of HAPI tokens that you bought since August 23. If you sold or withdrew your HAPI tokens before September 7, they will not count.

What about prizes?

Oh, we’ve got a lot of them! 🎁 The total prize fund is $5,000 HAPI and here’s how we’ll share it.

We’ll form this rating depending on how many HAPI participants have on their balances at the moment of the snapshot. There will be 4 groups of Top HAPI hodlers: 

  • Top-10 (1-10 places) 
  • Top-20 (11-20 places) 
  • Top-30 (21-30 places) 
  • Top-40 (31-40 places)

On September 13-15 we’ll randomly choose 1 winner in each group with the following rewards distribution: 

  • Winner from the Top-10 gets $1200 HAPI
  • Winner from the Top-20 — $800 HAPI
  • Holder from the Top-30 gets $700 HAPI 
  • And $500 HAPI goes to a winner from Top-40

💰 The more HAPI you bought = The higher rank in our Top lists = The better chances to win the main prize.

Yet, if you’re not ready to spend all your savings on HAPI, you still have a chance to win money. We’ll share $1,800 HAPI among ALL the eligible participants. 

3 lucky HODLers will get $600 each. 🤑
