Steemit Crypto Academy Weekly Update #11 [ April 26th, 2021 ]

in SteemitCryptoAcademy2 months ago

Artboard@3x (1).png

The Steemit Crypto Academy is now into the third week of Season 2.

The number of homework posts being submitted each week is becoming quite overwhelming.

It is great to see the number of genuine homework posts growing so strongly.

It is not so great however to see the number of plagiarists and content farmers continuing to grow as well.

To help curb these malpractices we have introduced two new voting rules regarding minimum Reputation level, and powering down.

We welcome everyone, with honest intentions, to participate and learn with the Crypto Academy.



The Steemit Crypto Academy Courses - Week 11

These are the courses for Week #11…


@abcallen [ China ]

This week Professor @Abcallen’s lesson is an introduction to the operation of blockchain wallets and exchanges.

The homework task involves writing a post demonstrating the buying and selling of STEEM or TRX on an exchange.



@alphafx [ Nigeria ] - assisted by @levycore [ Indonesia ]

This week Professor @Alphafx is looking at trading and holding cryptocurrencies.

The homework task involves writing about what type of wallet you use, and also demonstrating how to do spot trading for any pair of your choice.



@imagen [ Venezuela ] - assisted by @pelon53 [ Venezuela ]

This week Professor @Imagen is exploring Blockchain Projects.

The homework task involves creating your own fictional blockchain project including a whitepaper and roadmap.



@sapwood [ India ] - assisted by @fendit [ Argentina ]

This week Professor @Sapwood is all about JustLend.

The homework task covers a practical exploration with set tasks of using JustLend and jTokens.



@yousafharoonkhan [ Pakistan ] - assisted by @stream4u (India)

This week Professor @Yousafharoonkhan is investigating decentralized and centralized exchanges, how to use Uniswap and the best cryptocurrency exchanges.

The homework task involves answering questions about the differences between decentralized and centralized systems, and practical tasks on using Metamask and Uniswap.



@yohan2on [ Uganda ] - assisted by @kouba01 [ Tunisia ]

This week Professor @Yohan2on is looking at designing a cryptocurrency investment portfolio.

The homework task involves building your own investment portfolio of at least 6 cryptocurrencies.



Homework Guidelines

We are keen to ensure that all contributions to the Steemit Crypto Academy are of as high a standard as possible.

While the Crypto Professors may set specific requirements for some of their homework tasks we would suggest all students follow these basic guidelines…

  • Title the post with the format - Crypto Academy Week 11 - Homework Post for [name of Crypto Professor] …
  • Homework posts should be at least 300 words
  • All work should be your own - plagiarism will not be tolerated
  • Any graphs, screenshots, quotes etc used from other sources should be fully referenced
  • Any images used should be from copyright-free sources and fully referenced
  • Homework posts should include the tag #cryptoacademy and any tag specifically required by the Crypto Professor in the first five tags. It will also be good to include a tag for your country.
  • Tag the relevant Crypto Professor to help them find your homework post.

Please make sure you send your homework posts into the Crypto-Academy community…

Homework posts should be submitted no later than 11.59pm UTC, on Saturday, May 1st 2021. Note this is one day earlier than usual.


Please check each Professor’s post carefully for any special instructions they have given for their homework task. Once you have completed your homework post make sure you leave a link on the Professor’s post to ensure they see it.

Following all these guidelines carefully will help you gain higher vote rewards for your homework posts.



New Voting Rules for Season 2

To encourage people to do more research and put more effort into producing higher quality homework posts @steemcurator02 will now only be voting on posts that achieve a grade of 5 out of 10 or above from the Professor.

Additionally to discourage ‘content farming’ from multi-accounts set up purely to harvest votes from the Crypto Academy @steemcurator02 will only consider giving votes on homework posts submitted by people with reputations of 50 or above.

If you are new to Steem we suggest you join the Newcomers Community and do the Achievement Tasks there to get to know the platform and build up your reputation before joining the Crypto Academy…

To further discourage content farmers who commonly power down and cash out on a continual basis we will not, at our discretion, be voting on any posts from authors who are powering down.



The Steemit Crypto Academy community

The Crypto Academy community is ONLY for posts to do with the courses being run by the Crypto Professors…

Alongside the course posts from the Crypto Professors, the only other posts in the Steemit Crypto Academy community should be homework posts for the tasks set by the professors.

Please do not post general crypto related posts now in the Steemit Crypto Academy Community. Any non-Academy posts may be muted.



We hope as many of you as possible will join in with the Steemit Crypto Academy courses and do the homework tasks set by the Crypto Professors. You are free to follow as many of the courses as you want.

In this second season of the Academy we will be putting a greater emphasis on improving the quality of the homework posts.

We will also be putting even more resources into curbing plagiarism, content farming and other abuse.


We are keen for the Steemit Crypto Academy to provide a high quality learning opportunity for those willing to put in the effort to expand their knowledge and understanding of the world of cryptocurrencies.

Thank you

The Steemit Team

Hello, excuse me if I leave my post here from week 3 in steemit crypto academy, it is that my post last week was not rewarded, if I am wrong to leave my post here, let me know so I won't do it again.

https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@ruzmaira/steemit-crypto-academy-semana-3-or-proyectos-blockchain-conectividad-contiv

hello i am new in steemit and i wish to learn more about crypto currency

I recommend that you follow @steemitblog to be aware of the steemit Crypto Academy contests.I also recommend taking a look at the hashtag #steemitcryptoacademy every Sunday they will be giving homework that we must do.

If you do not know anything about crypto there you will gradually learn some fundamental aspects of this fascinating cryptographic world.

But first of all, make your presentation in Newcomers Community and complete the verification steps there, you can choose to obtain a 500 SP delegation that will help you take a step forward on the platform.

By the way, place a photo on your profile, you can do it where it says settings on your blog.

Thanks so much I appreciate

Excelente pero que revisen en orden por favor, el profesor @levycore corrije al azar, corrijiendo a los que estaban después de mi y hasta ahora no me ha calificado está tarea. https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@abigailaadap/steemit-crypto-academy-season-2-una-introduccion-a-los-tokens-no-fungibles-nft-profesor-levycore-tarea-acerca-de-sorare-por a demás de otra que tengo sin ser curada

No siempre te votaran las tarea realizada ya que hay muchas publicaciones en Steemit Crypto Academy que buscan ser recompensado por su trabajo algunos correr con la suerte de ser votados, como hay usuarios que no corren con la misma suerte así su calificación este por encima de 8 puntos y entiendo que a lo mejor te siente frustrada ya que estas tarea llevan tiempo e investigación para realizarla y duele ver que nuestra publicaciones quedan en cero pero así es este ecosistema, solo tenemos que ser constante y seguir perseverando hasta que alguien se fije en nuestro talento.

Es así? Pensé que recompensaban el esfuerzo de todos los participantes que aprobaban la tarea. Eso si que es desalentador!! Bueno, hay que ver el lado positivo. Estamos aprendiendo. Al menos yo esto viendo con más claridad este universo de las criptomonedas.

The posts are very nice and instructive. I liked it very much, but unfortunately I cannot attend. Because the reputation limitation, which was 45 last week, was 50 this week. I am trying to raise my reputation score rapidly. I think I am successful. but 50 reputation points is too much for me. I think I will do good homework for professors on this platform where I can show myself and make good posts. I would appreciate it if you rearrange the 50 reputation points rule. Of course I love steemit despite everything. Thank you in advance for your interest.

I see your reputation is 50, I think you are ready to perform some tasks at the academy.

I understand but there is a homework of mine that has not been corrected by @levycore and is about to expire. I advise you to correct orderly without skipping homework.

Good day, nice post. My work for Professor @stream4u expires tomorrow and it still hasn't been curated. Below is link
https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@hadassah26/crypto-academy-week-10-homework-post-for-professor-stream4u
@steemcurator02

Excelente oportunidad esta semana seguir aprendiendo, una sugerencia es que creo que se podría mejorar el método de sistema de calificación en base quizás a 10 todos por igual, por ejemplo la gramática para algunos es en base a (1) para otros es (2) o 1,5. También he visto algunas personas con una calificación de mas de 5 y no son visitados por los curadores siendo de reputación más de 50 .

Otra sugerencia es que seria bueno que la Crypto Academia de Steemit tenga discord para comunicarnos con los profesores, aclarar dudas y soltar el enlace en el canal, hay veces debemos esperar mucho tiempo para que el profesor responda el comentario, necesitamos comunicación así podemos aprovechar el tiempo .

Gracias por la información

verry well post...all good

Thanks @steemitblog but out of all the assignments I did only 1 was reviewed it really inspired me to do a good job.

hello good morning, I have an assignment graded by @ pelon53 with 9.5 and it has not yet been cured by @steemcurator02, I would appreciate if you could help me. The task has 6 days.

Tarea 2

Siento que cada día ponen las cosas más complicadas, así nunca vamos a superar a los coreanos. A parte algo está sucediendo a medida que las personas me dan votos la recompensa bajá y nadie explica el por qué sucede esto. Otra cosa a tener en cuenta es si tenemos un profesor chino no veo el motivo de por qué es racista con los demás usuarios ya que solo acepta tareas de chinos.. esto está en contra de la decentralizacion y la libertad que steem ofrece. Que opinan ustedes @steemitblog

Thanks team for updating, I'm already done with two home work post

I Like This Season

Hello @steemitblog, I am just three weeks into Steemit platform and want to join the SteemitCrypto academy courses.

But the post says, the course is already in the 3rd week of season 2. How and when can I join this course. Please through some light on it. Thank You.

No hay problema solo publica tus tareas en la academia, copia el enlace de tu post y colocalo en los comentarios de la clase del profesor para su debida revisión.

No hay un protocolo para la iniciación. Solo que debes tener minimi 50 de experiencia.

gracias por la información. muy apreciado. 👍😊 @perezzambrano

La oportunidad que se nos brinda todos los dias es más comodo con estos excelentes post que nos ayudan a crecer cada día mas y mas ,, gracias por su aporte, felicidades y éxitos para ti

Good day,

Hola como están, encantada de participar nuevamente esta semana, supongo el profesor @levycore debe tener muchas tareas por corregir ya que no ha pasado por la mía, esperare con calma su corrección.

This is great
Expect my maximum participation in these homework tasks

Loading...

@steemcurator02, I'm very happy for the new rules and more emphasis on great content development steemed from good research on set tasks from the crypto professors.
However, any homework tasks that have been verified by all the relevant bodies due to strictly adherence to those unique rules by the professor in action. Will it not be curated? These are links of my homework posts that are duly verified:

Please if there's a reason of not these posts curated. I really want to know and learn

Okay. That's interesting. But they are only 4 days old. I guess they will be curated soon.

I don't know. Sorry.

Steemit is giving me more information about crypto than Google

Hola @steemitblog espero que esté muy bien. Tengo una queja y no es contra usted pero se la informo por aquí porque sé que usted puede hablarlo ... Tengo una tarea que nunca fue corregida por el profesor @imagen y yo la hice dentro del plazo de su tarea, ésta se venció y nunca fue calificada ni recompensada, es ésta: https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@abigailaadap/steemit-crypto-academy-semana-1-or-ico-oferta-inicial-de-monedas-tarea-de-la-semana-y-profesor-imagen
Por otro lado, tengo una tarea la cual fue calificada por el profesor pero nunca fue curada por @ steemcurator02 o @ steemcurator01en esta tuve una calificación de 8, esta tarea se venció hace unas horas y no fue recompensada, es ésta: https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@abigailaadap/steemit-crypto-academy-season-2-una-introduccion-a-los-tokens-no-fungibles-nft-profesor-levycore-tarea-acerca-de-sorare-por
Y por último, hay otra tarea el cual ya fue calificada con una puntuación de 8.3 y no ha pasado @ steemcurator02 o @ steemcurator01 y ya le falta poco para que llegue a vencerse, espero que no me pase como las tareas anteriores. Es ésta: https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@abigailaadap/crypto-academy-week-10-publicacion-de-tareas-para-pelon53-security-token-utility-token-equity-token
Yo me esfuerzo en mi tareas para obtener buenas calificaciones pero no recibió recompensa de los curadores, estoy pensando en dejar de hacer las tareas.

Thanks @steemitblog for this wonderful initiative but please kindly let Professor @pelon53 to review my homework task. His task requested we submit from 19/04/2021 to 25/04/2021 which I respected the deadline just for him to comment that I participated late. It is not fair judgement. Let him kindly revisit his decision and review my homework task. Here is the link https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@chant/steemit-crypto-academy-week-2-season-2-homework-task-for-professor-pelon53. Let him consider different time zones because he never emphasized on that.

good academy work

@steemitblog and @steemcurator01 thank you so much for your grand project CryptoAcademy and your support to all participants.

Hello! @steemitblog

Hi @steemitblog my homework has been verified since 6 days ago but has not been vistd by @steemcurator02 and it is left with just few hours to payout. Below is the link of the homework
https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@predomina/crypto-academy-week-10-homework-post-for-stream4u

Good day,
New rules are welcomed. But still many posts of last week checked by professor @stream4u actively, is not visited by @steemcurator02 as the posts are old even 5 days. Please pay attention.

Example: https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@azamrai/steemit-crypto-academy-homework-task-week-10-post-for-stream4u

Thank you

Yes bro, even me. I have a post with 9/10 ratings but didn't reward yet and it is about to payout tomorrow.

Therefore I was the first who commented about this.

You're right, I noticed that there are many posts that are being downloaded without receiving a vote from @steemcurator02 and with good ratings. Studying at the academy requires time and dedication, we need support from the votes to be able to dedicate time and continue studying and progressing. Here is my publication that has not received a vote yet

https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@michellechristie/week2-or-token-parte-1-by-pelon53

@steemitblog If there is anything I can do to help speed up the process, I am at your service, more and more students will join every day

firma Michelle.png

Wait till 6 days and if vote is not done, you must comment the relevant professor of his new post.

Thank you very much, we are still waiting

Yes, you should wait.

It's alright @loloy2020. the steemcurators do their best to vote on posts before payout. You have nothing to worry about, the delay, as stated in the post is as a result of the huge turnout of participants. I've also gotten post voted at the last few hours of expiration 👍

Hopefully it will get curated before payout tomorrow. Despite all happened, I still support the academy, maybe next time this issue will be solve.

Mine was too.

Hello @steemurator01 sir why removing deligatiom takes too much time , sir it should be minimised to some extent.

I really enjoyed the class but do not have enough reputation to take part in the assignments as I'm a newbie here! Nice lessons though.

Been away for some times. i think this is a nice place to restart.

It's very helpful update. Thanks for share with us.

Hello @steemitblog, @steemcurator01 @steemcurator02 we are many students who are not receiving the votes despite having a grade above 5 points, we try hard to investigate and we really need your support, our publications have more than 3 days without being cured, and there are tasks of other students in other countries with just 19 hours already curated, please we need an answer since the effort is great, we dedicate time to learn each concept since we are in the beginning phase of the blockchain and cryptography world, Please there are many overdue tasks and some to be shut down. What should we do?

HELP ! how to drop steem on steemit ? please I’m debutant

Thank you for sharing this informations @steemitblog

Hola, good day to all of you, I must say that I am grateful for the excellent work and all the effort put in by the Steemit Crypto Academy team. I understand the chaos that can be behind the entire verification process and that there are some issues.

So I make a request that you please have a look at to my homework tasks before it payouts end.
The following posts had a curation delay, I tried to contact the teachers but I did not have a response in time

Please forgive me for the inconvenience with the application, but this means a lot of help to me. @steemitblog @steemcurator01 @steemcurator02

Agradecido por su tiempo y ayuda. Muchas gracias!

The posts are very nice and instructive. I liked it very much, but unfortunately I cannot attend. Because the reputation limitation, which was 45 last week, was 50 this week. I am trying to raise my reputation score rapidly. I think I am successful. but 50 reputation points is too much for me. I think I will do good homework for professors on this platform where I can show myself and make good posts. I would appreciate it if you rearrange the 50 reputation points rule. Of course I love steemit despite everything. Thank you in advance for your interest.

Hi @steemcurator02

This post is approved with 7 grades by @stream4u and expiring in one day. Kindly visit. thanks in advance for your time.

No tenía idea que esto era un caos con las curaciones!

Creo que el estímulo de muchos para participar en estas tareas que requieren horas de investigación es la recompensa prometida.

No sé dónde lo dice exactamente, pero llegué a leer que todas las tareas con buenas calificaciones serían curadas, pero había que tener paciencia y esperar con confianza que así sería. Ahora leo que no es así, que hay personas con todas sus tareas con buenas calificaciones a las que no han curado ni una vez.

A la persona a quien se le ocurrió esta dinámica, obviamente se ha visto superada por la cantidad de participantes.

Voy con una tormenta de ideas:

  • Asignar más curadores con poder de voto.
  • Asignar una cuota a los profesores para que por si mismo asigne la curación. Cada calificación debería tener un valor fijo.
  • Abrir un plazo de inscripción para participar en las tareas que cierra los domingos a las 12am. El profesor debería llevar una lista de sus estudiantes. No quedarían tareas sin evaluar y sin curar.

Otro punto, los profesores deberían ser evaluados semanalmente, para evitar que se engreían y se vuelvan unos exquisitos al que no se les puede contrariar.

Hay que buscar ponerle solución a esto pronto, porque hay mucho descontento.

Hacemos muchas preguntas pero todos estamos sin recibir respuestas, sólo queda esperar alguna información de @steemitblog @steemcurator02 @steemcurator01

My reputation is 61.
