Thanks to all the participants and followers of this Challenge

Thank you everyone for the support and criticisms, it's been a long month of promoting trying to get votes culminating to the end. All the submissions here look very competitive and I wish them the best of luck. Finally thank you to The Royal Canadian Mint and Challenge Post for coming up with a challenge that will drive innovation in commerce.

    I ditto that sentiment. Also as the contest draws to an end, we wanted to show our appreciation for the Royal Canadian Mint for giving us an opportunity to play with a cool idea.
    We are open sourcing the code for our app (MintX) in the hope that some one else may be able to put it to some use that we did not consider.
    Please go to http://mintxca.com/ and download the source. Drop us a line if you ever use it or make changes to the code. We would love to hear from you.

    Thanks

    What was the point of all the voting, if the voting didn't count for squat. What a sham this whole process to out to be. Thanks for wasting my time and I won't be getting a Windows Phone, so I won't be able to use the winning entry of this crooked contest.

    Hi Robert,

    Thanks for writing. During the public voting period, public votes were displayed on the Competition website, on a real-time basis, before being verified for integrity. Those unverified votes did not necessarily reflect accurately the voting for the Popular Choice Award.

    The Popular Choice Award was determined after verifying all the votes and counting all legal votes.

    Thank you for the opportunity. We truly loved working on this competition. Congratulations to all the winners. The apps look fantastic!

    Will there be any explanation as to why the most popular public suggestion (you know, the one that mentioned the "B" word) didn't even get a look in? I just can't believe that a national central bank would be so disingenuous!

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for writing. The rules of the MintChip Ideas Challenge state that public voting will narrow down the entries to 25 finalists, from which the judges will then pick the 10 winners.

    The rules of the challenge were followed to the letter.

    Also, you might know this but the main challenge, http://mintchipchallenge.com, is an apps challenge where software was made using MintChip. This ideas challenge was a complementary challenge designed to come up with ideas using MintChip.

    Best,
    Marny
