Background

The Homework Task Week-3(Season 3) draws to a close on 17th July 2021. During the last week, we witnessed as many as 99 entries.

I would like to congratulate all who participated and submitted their assignments during this week.

This week we covered-- Multiple Transfers/Batch Send at one click. I hope you all now have a better insight into the practical side of "Batch Send/Multi Send at one click" along with your experience with "wrong/invalid/duplicate addresses" and "invalid format".

Those who participated this week in Homework Task-3 are well-informed now with various use-cases like "single transaction--single output", "single transaction--multiple outputs", "different amounts to different recipients", "repetitive/recurring amounts at a predefined interval to different recipients", etc

I hope Week 3 was productive, persuasive, informative, and educative for you all.

Steemit Crypto Academy is helping you all to bridge the gap between concept and gaining experience, particularly for naive users; thereby inducing practical intelligence. The tasks are designed & structured in a way to make you familiar with the practical exploration of a use-case. In essence, you gain real experience, and you earn as well in Steemit Crypto Academy.

I would like to convey my gratitude to the Steemit Team for coming up with such an idea and organizing a team for that cause, fostering crypto literacy.

This week, we have visited all the posts that have been submitted with the correct tag( #sapwood-s3week3, #cryptoacademy). So I would request all the participants to make sure that they use the correct tags and that should be among the first five tags. And also make sure you post in the Steemit Crypto Academy community.

Observation & Thoughts

We found 99 entries in the last week(Week-3). We have visited them all.

This week we covered how we can batch send to a number of addresses at one click, yet paying the same amount of fees(approx) as that of a single transaction with a single output. Further, in Steem Blockchain using the Steemyy tool, we explored a number of variants and additions to this use case.

Those who have performed a real transaction in this Task have explored the practical side of multi send/batch send at one click. Such users have definitely scored better. Nevertheless, all of you have gained first-hand information and experience with multi send/Batch send features of a Blockchain wallet.

The simple average score for Week 3 (#sapwood-s3week3) stands at "6.63". Percentage of posts with a score below 5 stands at 8%.

Organized writing and a curated directory of organized articles on the Trending page will also add fundamental value to Steem Blockchain & Steemit Crypto Academy. It's a continuous process and we must evolve as organized authors every day/every week through such Tasks/assignments.

This week we did not find any plagiarized content. That's a good sign. We have zero-tolerance for spam/plagiarism. So any such act(and/or repeating such act) will diminish your potential in Steem Blockchain.

Always go through the rules/guidelines/deadline before submitting your assignment.

I would like to highlight a few areas which need to be addressed.

(1) Presentation:-

Screenshots (Either too small to make it readable, or not properly outlined/emphasized)

  • In a practical task, you always have to provide a lot of screenshots. At times your article becomes heavy and too noisy. So you should always capture a screenshot that is really needed for the subject, neither too much, nor too little. You should crop and adjust the outer edges so that it brings the attention of the readers and becomes clearly visible & readable.

  • Always outline and emphasize the specific areas in a way that it takes less effort for the readers/curators to decipher.

  • If you are using different styling techniques, make it consistent with its style and color.

  • Any watermark or your username on the screenshot should not be too big.

  • Proper alignment of the screenshot renders a professional touch.

Repetitive/Redundant Words or sentences

Many users repeated the same sentence/word at multiple places, even they described the entire steps of "multiple transfers using Steemyy" in their analysis with wrong/invalid addresses. There is no need for such an approach, in fact, it makes the overall structure poor.

So I would request our participants to avoid redundant words/sentences. Please note that an excessively lengthy post is always a turn-off, you might not score better with such an approach. Short, sweet, concise post always wins the attention, in Crypto Academy, your approach should be to the merit of the Task, subject, and its requirement. Always try to be precise & make your approach straight to the point, make it less noisy.

Proofreading
I would also request, before hitting the submit button, please read it at least once/twice. At the final stage of your writing, you must go for one round of proofreading to surface out the misspelling and grammatical errors. It was a major issue for most of the users this week too. Please take it seriously, it will enhance the structure of your content to make it readable, succinct. You can take the help of the Grammarly app for proofreading.

Proper Formatting
Proper formatting is essential to make your content more organized, your content might be good, but you need to learn the skill of presentation to make it more attractive. That always wins the attention of the reader at the first sight. Use markdown styling to present it in a professional way. If you do that on a day-to-day basis you also evolve as a professional blogger in the long run.

(2) Consistency & Compliance

It's more about assertion and correct reasoning of the same which makes your research and understanding comprehensive to make it a true representation/response to the subject.

For instance, if you say that "multi send/batch send" is cost-effective than a "single transaction with a single output", then the reasoning must also be attached to chain link your understanding of the subject.

(3) Quality of Analysis

When you develop a relationship with a dApp or a use-case(by gaining sufficient user experience), you jerked into the reality of the variants and the different challenges(e.g. address typos in a transaction) associated with it. That's where you encounter different confounding variables.

Your research, analysis, understanding, and practical exposure to such variables will help you to draw a conclusion on the common mistakes; that will ultimately help you to appropriately demonstrate them, making you a more reliable author.

(4) Real Transactions

Try to bridge the gap between "what you know" and "How you deliver" in a Task. That is much more important, and please bear in mind that if you are attending an Advanced Tier course, your analysis & the approach should be outcome-based with realistic examples/use-cases.


The level of engagement is very poor. We want our participants to visit other's posts and produce insightful comments, make it an interactive session. At present only the professor is interacting with the participants. The student-to-student interaction is missing. We can't build an interconnected web and better content discovery without engagement. I request all of you to visit other's posts.in Steemit Crypto Academy.

We have evaluated all the entries on the basis of the following parameters:-

  • Proper representation of a task
  • Whether covered all the sub-parts of an assignment or not
  • Real Transaction to demonstrate multi send/batch send
  • Consistency/Compliance/Reasoning
  • Proper formatting
  • True representation of the text/subject(with illustration/screenshot)
  • Quality of Analysis
  • Grammar/Spelling
  • Free of Spam/Plagiarism.
  • Adhering to the laid rules or not
  • Proof-Reading
  • Original content

Of the 99 entries, I found the following three as the best entries this week.

S NoAuthorPost LinkRemarks
1@focusnowLinkThe author has beautifully explained multi send features taking into account the real-world implementation in Steem Blockchain, he has described in a way where the use-case has become a necessity for community leaders in Steem Blockchain.
2@dharampsLinkThe author has demonstrated with proper multivariate analysis of each use-case making it appear like a useful and with real-world implementation/application.
3@aneukpineung78LinkThe author has produced an exceptionally well-written article, it's revealing, educational, expertly researched with top-class presentation skills.

NB- Selection of a winner may not be absolute, most of the time, it is based on the relative performance. As long as you focus on all the sub-parts of Homework Task and gain sufficient user experience, include real examples & analysis, you stand better to win it.

Conclusion

We all are committed to creating an enriched communication environment, organizational interactions, etc which is a precursor to building a foundation of crypto literacy. The right information and education should percolate down the line and the PoB will come along to reward you(extrinsic motivation).

We will try our best to structure a task to draw real-life experiences for you, to motivate you for sustained attention to the task/academy. The participants should also reciprocate in line with the Task requirement, particularly if it demands a real trade/transactions/experience. Healthy participation and effective discussion are key to the overall success of the Crypto Academy.

We will also try our best to reinforce the principle of collectivism/democracy (but always on the basis of performance) through the crypto academy.

The crypto academy is also an avenue to learn to reason and to find & explore the passions and talents of the users in this ecosystem.

Gain as much user experience as you can. But always be your own. Don't hesitate to write what you have understood(even if you are wrong), We will take care of corrections if needed. The most important thing at the end of the day is what you learned.

The take-home message-- Develop a relationship with dApp/Exchange(or as the Task demands), Learn, Experience, Perform a real Trade, Analyze; then submit your assignment. This is the ideal path to economic advantage(upvote) & crypto literacy.

Thank you.

Hello @chinma. The professors use a tool which helps track all assignment posts. When I tried, I wasn't able to find your post. We have already identified a bug which might have caused this to happen. Could you please explain the things that you did after creating the initial post. Looking at your blockchain history, I can see that there were 3 separate edits made on your main post. Did you by any chance hit the delete button after your post was created? This is just so that I understand the bug better to be able to probably fix it.
