RE: Understanding Steemit : Know How Steemit Reward System Works and How Rewards Are Distributed!

in #tutorial4 years ago

Thank you so much for this article. It's the first one I have read that actually makes sense of the whole Steem business. I'm relatively new (and still a minnow) so it's good to finally understand why my SBD payout doesn't match the amount of $ shown underneath my post. One question though: why does the $ earned fluctuate? I have seen my rewards go down during the week before payout without the amount of votes changing. Thanks!

Sort:  

Steemit rewards (the $ amount) depends on price of Steem. Steemit takes median price (average of last three days) of Steem to assign USD value to your upvotes.

When price changes, the value of all future and currently pending payout votes also changes. That's why the fluctuation. I hope it is clear now.

Ah, thank you! For some reason I couldn't get it through my thick skull that the rewards are in USD rather than Steem dollars (although the $ should have been a giveaway!).
