Cointelegraph is pleased to announce the winners of the Christmas price prediction contest sponsored by Virtex and EgoPay!

We received a huge number of entries and have found those which qualify for first and second prize. The price on Virtex at noon on December 25 was US$319.30.

An Reo was the closest with a predication of $322.20, followed by Raduque AK with $327.60!

First prize consists of 2 bitcoins – one from Cointelegraph and one from Virtex. Second prize consists of $500 sent to a nominated EgoPay account.

Congratulations to our winner and runner up!

We would ask Raduque AK to get in touch with us so that we can send the prize to the correct account.

Unfortunately, several closer predictions we received were unfortunately disqualified. Either these were not done in tandem with sharing on social media, were too late or did not specify the currency used to make the prediction.

Nevertheless, the response was incredible and we look forward to running additional giveaways in future! In the meantime, why not check out our General Manager Maria’s Christmas riddle? You could win free tickets to next year’s Texas Bitcoin Conference!
