- ACON4 Place Your Bets Contest Winners Announced

Although the results of the ACON4 finals were announced some time ago now, a contest for outsiders had been taking place alongside it by the name of the "Place Your Bets Contest". This consisted of 6,563 freely entered participants which were to guess which of the ACON4 finalists would reign supreme. People who guessed correctly were entered into a random drawing for the number 1 prize, the ACON4 SuperSystem. Turns out a X. Y. Zheng from China was the lucky chap to get his hands on that. Full details on final results, overall vote tallies, and prizes can be read within ABIT's official press release.
