Well, that’s what your aim of it is. But I was proposing that there may not be a way to do this that is seen as lucrative to SH unless it is an option that we make and cover ourselves. I am saying this because while coins may be ‘virtual’ currency via SH, there is still monetary value placed behind it the way that SH has structured it.
We, right now, have to ‘buy’ coins. So coins have a monetary value, and therefore that would be value that may impact SH in some way if they were to do such for every contest as that would be considered a non-gain of revenue. They may not actually be ‘losing’ anything as it is virtual in that regard, but they also are not gaining anything as they would with a tradition purchase of the coins. And because the coins can be used as a granter of a service, a way to do something advantageous, things that require time/effort on SH’s part, etc. etc. – SH would then be covering those amenities, services, time/effort, or things of value without recouping anything for it. So it may not be a traditional loss but it is kinda a loss/non-gain.
Edited to add:
I would like to add, however, that I do like the idea. Maybe SH would like the idea as well. We can hope that they would, because as you even said, it would help to offset things and also reward us a bit. But, effectively, I’m acknowledging that I can see both sides of the argument and why it may not be possible. It would definitely be amazing if SH could think that it would be possible. But, I just wanted to be realistic and outline the possible other side of the ‘coin’ (pun intended)
