UpFundMe Update: Power Up Bonus Paid Out + Bots & Last Chance For Whale Packages!
Bonus UFM Power
Earlier today everyone with staked UFM received a bonus in the form of more UFM Power! This amount was based on how much UFM Power you already had.
We set up 2 more accounts to automate basic rewards for posting in #upfundme.
@ufm.pay (1500 UFM Power) - Will upvote any #upfundme post a small reward in UFM and STU as long as our excluded tags are not used.
@ufm.reserve (125000 UFM Power) - Will upvote with a higher weight any #upfundme posts in one of our encouraged tags. (crowdfund, charity, projects, ufm, services, contest and giveaway)
The idea is to reward our general posters a little bit, while encouraging users to post content in our encouraged tags with a higher weighted upvote. Hopefully we see more projects, crowdfunds, services, contests and giveaways being posted because of it.
Anyone caught abusing this system will be blacklisted (after a warning) from receiving any rewards from either account.
Curation via the @upfundme account will still remain manual.
We are getting closer to launching our bidbot sink, @ufmbot. It will burn all UFM it earns each day reducing the supply of UFM! It will also create a much needed demand for the supply in our market. It will not have any UFM Power so using it will not effect posts on upfund.me, only on STEEM sites.
To encourage users to delegate Steem Power to @ufmbot, we are working on a way to have it vote on #upfundme posts for those who delegate to it, but only when it doesn't have any bidbot bids. Sometimes bidbots sit idle with full vote power waiting for a bid, so we can use this idle time to reward those who delegate to it with upvotes on their upfundme posts. SP is currently low on @ufmbot, but we plan to lease more to add to any delegated amounts closer to it's launch.
If you delegate over 50 Steem Power to @ufmbot, it will activate this feature. Delegating more than 50 SP will not increase your vote weight received but it will create more demand for UFM increasing it's value. This feature is currently active but still in testing.
