This July, Paxful is officially half-a-decade old and we can’t be more proud of how far we’ve come! Of course, we wouldn’t have been able to make it this far if it wasn’t for your support along the way, so read on to see how we’re giving back to our community this month. 

Weekly $1,000 #MyPaxfulStory Giveaway*

You know our story, but we don’t know much about yours.

Throughout July, we’re going to post a question per week on all our social channels to get to know your journey on Paxful. There will be four questions in total.

For each question, we’ll be giving away a total of 1,000 USD worth of BTC to 5 lucky storytellers (200 USD each) whose comments got the most likes. All you need to do is:

  1. Follow @paxful on social media 
  2. Like the #MyPaxfulStory post that we post every Monday throughout July at 7AM EST 
  3. Answer our #MyPaxfulStory question in the comments with the hashtags #MyPaxfulStory and #Paxful5

This is your chance to tell us how your journey’s been—we truly want to know how our service has impacted your life and what you think about us. Spill your beans now! 

“Paxful5” Trade and Win – $5,000 in Total Prize**

Competition period: July 7, 2020 (0:00 AM EST) to July 31, 2020 (11:59 PM EST)

Besides telling us your story, you can also change your luck at taking money home as you continue to trade with us. Here’s how:

  1. Create a new offer with any payment method 
  2. Add Paxful5 as an offer tag 
  3. Start trading!

You’ll get one raffle entry after every 5 successful trades (not canceled or disputed) using the Paxful5 offer tag.

The total trading amount of these 5 trades has to be more than $500, which is $100 on average per trade. That’s right, the more you trade, the more raffle entries you get, and the higher the chance of winning you have! There will only be one winner for this giveaway.

It’s $5,000 we’re talking about, so get ready and start trading! 💥
