After four members of the "Finger on the App" challenge continued to hold their fingers on the smartphone display for 70 hours, YouTube blogger MrBeast, famous for videos about making large donations or presenting challenges, urged them to go to sleep and each get $20,000 in instead of one prize of $25,000.
Finger on the App is a one-time mobile game created by MrBeast in collaboration with MSCHF. The rules of the game are extremely simple: you have to be the last to take your finger off the screen of your smartphone and get $25,000. The challenge started on the afternoon of June 30. It was completed only three days later when YouTube creator Jimmy "MrBeast" Donaldson promised to award the last four participants with a prize of $20,000.
Despite Donaldson's calls to "go to sleep," the pair of participants still continued to hold their finger on the display for some time. One of them did not believe the words of the blogger, as he considered these calls a trick. However, Donaldson kept his word and confirmed that he was able to contact all the finalists and discuss the nuances of receiving the prize.
By the way, MrBeast began to “bribe” the participants long before the end of the challenge. He convinced two players to leave the challenge on July 2 for $5,000 and two more on July 3 for $10,000.
