MAXUV Weekly Statement & Token Distribution - over 22% APR - 20 September 2020 [MAP Steem FinTech]
Welcome to our weekly MAXUV account statement.
Our hybrid votes-and-rewards model seems to be working well, with total income significantly higher than anything else I've seen.
Overall earnings have been stable this week, and our minimum estimate is still a healthy 22.3% APR.
Note that the balance between rewards from votes and income is, again, nudging in favour of income. This is part of the design, so that modest amounts of SP can yield far more than mere votes. I understand that users enjoy receiving votes to boost visibility, so am happy to retain this mixed model, but worth mentioning that our distributions add a significant amount to the value of a MAXUV token.
Indeed, this week has seen a significant drop in the vote yield on the Steem blockchain and yet we are able to post a modest increase. This is partly due to payouts from delegations; I have said many times that those returns seemed quite high and that blockchain yields would be coming down. We are now reaping the benefits of those leases.
This week also sees the slightly unusual situation in that the gross returns have dropped slightly and yet the net returns have nudged up. As I said above, this is due to the gross vote yield of the blockchain dropping, yet our management of the income stream continues to produce dividends.
Notice also that the volatility in the underlying STEEM (and SBD) price has very little effect on our profitability in STEEM terms. This has always been the case; the blockchain median price and the reward pool adjust to compensate. The real effect on earnings comes from activity, which is measured in the recent claims.
Notice that our "Other STEEM" is now a rather low figure, as most investments in third-party tokens have been either sold off or marked down. This means we can concentrate on our own program, which seems to be earning nicely.
Another reminder that the MAXUV market is there to trade tokens. This is all very obvious but the price has fallen below our customary 0.90 STEEM buyback and there are some heavy sales before we ever get back to that level. This is all normal and how the market works; I have increased our power-downs to accommodate such sales but this takes time. There is no point the fund holding a huge reserve as that money would not be earning anything. So, if you are waiting for a sale, then just be patient - if not, then any quick sales will be a buying opportunity for someone.
A further reminder, that the voting will remain at 100% for 2,000 tokens, and the capital limit is 5,000 tokens for a share in the weekly rewards. You may, of course, hold more than this like a deposit account.
The difference between MAXUV and MAPR is that MAXUV will have no delegators and will be paying out in MAXUV tokens whereas MAPR does accept delegators, pays out in tokens to auto-compound but does not give upvotes nor measures posting activity.
I hope these two programs will help members achieve greater rewards from both staking and posting.
Enjoy your week!

Note that "Other STEEM" is the sum of all holdings not powered up as SP: liquid STEEM and SBD plus holdings within Steem Engine. Also note that such values are volatile, especially any holdings priced in US$, so the above numbers are a snapshot and may have changed when you look at the @MAXUV account.
The Asset Backed Value (ABV) is our total holdings calculated in STEEM divided by the number of active MAXUV tokens.
Full details of how the MAXUV token operates can be found at our launch document, although there have been tweaks and updates since.
