UpFundMe Update: Posting Rewards and Crowdfund Structure + More

in #upfundme2 years ago (edited)


Posting Rewards

UFM posting and curation rewards are now available for those posting in and voting on posts in #upfundme.

Crowdfunding will remain the core of UpFundMe, however more is required to keep us from becoming a spam machine.

We would like to see contests, giveaways, airdrops, services and posts related to your crowdfund (if you have one).

Please note, SCOT settings may change after we launch the site.

Crowdfunding Structure

In the past, things felt a little spammy in #upfundme but we intend to bring that to an end. We will no longer upvote or support a copy and paste of the same post over and over again.

  • To start a crowdfund, create a post on UpFundMe (or using #upfundme on your favorite front end).

  • Be sure to add in #crowdfunding.

  • This should be only posted once, and you can refer back to it in future posts.

  • Give lots of details and pictures.

  • Make sure your crowdfund has a clearly stated goal, preferably in either UFM, STEEM or USD.

  • Your UFM balance will be considered your progress towards this goal.

  • Updates on your funding progress are encouraged, but must be new content not already posted.

  • If you're starting a project or service for STEEM, consider adding benefit options for those who support you.

  • Communicate with those who engage you on your posts, answering a question could mean the difference between a big upvote, or a large downvote.

  • Power up some UFM to support others, this may encourage them to support you.

  • Try to be open and honest when doing your initial crowdfunding post, as well as in updates.

  • You can also post your quality content within #upfundme, helping you attain your crowdfunding goals faster.

Encouraged Tags

Besides the obvious crowdfunding and charity tags, we would also like to see content from the following tags within UpFundMe:

  • airdrop
  • contest
  • giveaway
  • services (steem, tribe and others)
  • crypto
  • blockchain
  • news
  • life

More tags may be added to this list over time. You can use other tags and content on #upfundme, but the majority of our vote power will go towards crowdfunding, charity and the above tags.

SBI Donation

We donated 100 UFM power to @sbi1 - @sbi10, 900 UFM power total. The hope is that this will give most users a little boost when they use #upfundme. If need be, we may increase this amount to make it effective.

But didn't get, what address are you using for your nitrous instance? Where can I check my Voting Power / Manna for UFM?

The nitrous instance is next on the list of things to get, we are over 20% funded towards the nitrous front end. I estimate less than a week before it is launched. But for now people can still get ready by posting content in #upfundme and earn posting and curation rewards by doing so.

Edit: You can also use scot.today and check the voting power and stake of all your scots here: http://scot.today/user/?name=xyzashu

Thanks! Let's hope it to happen sooner than that!
Why not host some resteem contest or something to spread the word about UFM?

Hey Guys,

Great project! Just checking the rules here. Would i be allowed to use #upfundme t #crowdfunding to help make me a minnow? Or is that not appropriate? I have 150SP to go! last stretch! Let me know!

Well... It's been done before using our old system, but ultimately it would be up to the community. If they support it, we will.

Your best bet would be to make regular posts using #upfundme, and reports on your progress by also adding #crowdfund. Use #crowdfund instead of #crowdfunding though.

awesome! Thanks for the tip! Just wanted to check if its legit. so many new tribes, the rules aren't always clear! Thanks again!
