Why can’t Quebec residents enter?
Quebec has unique legislation that restricts the ability of companies to giveaway valuable property (like Bitcoin) in the Province of Quebec. As a Quebec-based corporation, we wish we could open this up to everyone and we may in the future be able to do so, but for now, The Daily Referral Giveaway is only open to Canadians outside of Quebec in order for us to be compliant with Quebec law.
Quebec residents are not eligible to win the daily giveaway. However, residents of other provinces can refer Quebec residents and be eligible to win the Daily Referral Giveaway.
When will I receive a prize if I win?
Every day starting July 10th, the winner will be announced on both Shakepay’s Discord community and the official Shakepay Twitter page once they have been selected. If you are selected as the daily winner, your prize will be added to your Shakepay account within 24 hours (once all of the requirements are met).

We’re a registered Money Services Business so please note that prior to receiving your prize you will be asked to confirm your current residential address and answer a skill-testing question. You might also be asked to submit a Proof of Address document if needed.

The value in Sats of each Prize will be calculated at the time of awarding the Prize, using the then current Shakepay conversion rate. Thus, the value in Sats may vary accordingly.
There will be only 1 Winner each day. The Prize shall be sent to the Shakepay Account of the selected Winner of the day.
4. PROCEDURE FOR AWARDING PRIZES
Every day, starting July 10th, 2021, a random winner will be picked from a list of the Participants. The winner will then need to answer a skill-testing question in order to qualify for the awarding of the Prize, and you must answer the question correctly. You must and warrant that you will answer the question without the assistance of any other person.
If the winners agree, their shaketag (username) will be shared publicly on the official Shakepay Discord community and the official Shakepay Twitter page (and any other website or app used by Shakepay). Winners will be announced each day, starting July 10th, 2021. The Winner will also receive a message from the Shakepay team in the Shakepay app. If the Winner does not have the Shakepay app set up, they will receive an email from [email protected].
The Winner must confirm their current residential address prior to receiving the Prize. We expect every Winner will confirm their address but a Winner who does not complete this requirement (and the skill-testing question) within 30 days will be deemed not to be a Winner, and no Prize will be awarded for that day. Being announced as a Winner by Shakepay is not sufficient to be awarded a Prize as all of the Contest Rules must be complied with before any Prize shall be awarded.
If the Winner’s address is up to date and matches the address on the Winner’s Shakepay account, the Winner will receive a Prize based on their residency. If the Winner’s address is changed from either non-Quebec to Quebec residency, or Quebec to non-Quebec residency, the Winner must submit a Proof of Address prior to receiving the Prize. Notwithstanding the foregoing, determination of “residency” shall be in Shakepay’s sole discretion and its decision regarding residency shall be final.
The Winner can participate in the Contest again and is eligible for having a chance to win the Contest if the criteria are met.
If a winner does not respond within seven days following the first attempt of contact, refuses to provide their current residential address, or declines the Prize, the Prize shall be forfeited and Shakepay shall have the right, at its sole discretion, to select another Winner for that day or pick an additional Winner for another day (but it is not obligated to do so).
