Vote-Selling: New Steempower Requirement

in #smartsteem2 years ago (edited)


Greetings Steemians,

we're coming to you with an important change to our vote-selling feature.

From now on, only accounts that have at least 100 effective Steempower are eligible for vote-selling.

Effective Steempower is essentially what your account is able to use, after subtracting outgoing-delegations and adding received-delegations.

Examples

Anna has 150 Steempower. She's delegating 100 Steempower to @smartsteem and is receiving 50 Steempower from another account. 150 - 100 + 50 = 100 Thus, she's eligible for vote-selling.

Frank has 15 Steempower, without any delegations. Thus, he's not eligible for vote-selling.

Lucy has 100 Steempower, is delegating 50 Steempower to another account but isn't receiving delegations. 100 - 50 = 50 Thus, she's not eligible for vote-selling. However, Lucy can delegate the remaining 50 Steempower to @smartsteem if she wants.

Why are we introducing this change?

We want to give everyone the ability to sell their votes, but we believe that this change is good for the blockchain, in multiple aspects.

Besides reducing the strain on the blockchain with very small votes and preventing abuse of free-delegation accounts, we also want to give people an incentive to "invest" in Steem and hold more Steempower.

We also believe that nearly everyone is able to achieve this threshold of 100 Steempower. At the point of this post, 100 Steempower equals to about ~42 USD. Which is not that difficult to achieve. Regardless if you buy some or earn it by participating on Steem.

My Steempower is below 100. What now?

Again, having at least 100 Steempower is very possible. You can either buy it, e.g. via an exchange or you can earn it over time.

And in the case that you still want to earn with your Steempower, while you're below 100 Steempower, you can delegate it to us. (minimum: 20 Steempower)

So, if you haven't achieved the 100 Steempower threshold already, here is another incentive to do so.

nachvollziehbare Änderung. Ab wann gilt das? Gibt es einen Übergangszeitraum?

I delegated 100SP on 4/13. But no incoming so far. Is that normal?

Hey ugghhhh suggestion. Have a support team at your site. (if there is tell me)

I have a problem with my payouts. The settings of my payout is 1 day.
I haven't received my payout after one day.

So right now my settings for my payout is 0 days. (note it was 0 days initially but changed it. Maybe the act of changing it while waiting for increased delegation made a glitch?)

It's weird because this never happened before. Please help

One more time we see popular services supporting and helping not those who need it most, minnows with low SP but strong accounts who already can earn Steem and can afford to promote it their posts. And people wonder why new users leave after a few days.

Why don't give me my daily revenue in 24hr

I have the feeling that for the last couple of days there is some very active vote buying which generally leaves the voting strength at only a couple of dollars. Could you guys check into this? thanks :)

P.S: I also want to apply for the whitelist, but I couldn't find a link anywhere

I have a question about Delegating Steempower to @SmartSteem .... I delegated 1,000 SteemPower and after a month I tried to undelegate. It says I need to wait for 5 days to receive my SteemPower back - I notice that I do not receive any Steem from @SmartSteem during these past 5 days and that after 5 days I have not had my 1,000 Steempower returned. Please advise on how this works ..... Do you send me the Balance owing ? Soon ?
