RE: I've delegated 25,000 SP to @steem-ua today because I want to be part of "Steem Movement"

in #busy3 years ago

Hi @nathanmars, that's a great approach! And a great example. I am currently delegating some SP to minnowbooster and smartsteem... it's made me think about getting that back and spreading the votes on people that will actually hold the steem rewards they receive and power it up, rather than sell the rewards onto an exchange pushing the steem price lower.

Being a kid who was born in a village in the middle of a 3rd world country, I get where you're coming from. Steem on!

But smartsteem is a bidbot

Hello @stellabelle

Yea, I wasn't too sure about delegating to it, but as most of my rewards are being wiped out by a certain whale, I needed someway to get some growth on my steem power.

I have undelegated the 1,000 SP from minnow booster, so I can use that to give a meaningful upvote to others.

I also wanted to experience what it was like delegating to a vote bot so I could discuss it from a more informed position.

Smart steem was the only one I could delegate to as I like the way @therealwolf works and his support for @steem-ua and @helpie.

@kabir88

I like the way it’s run as well and I think it’s the best one but as you may know there were no bidbots before and people actually voted....

But it's very hard to put the cat back in the bag. Hopefully we will find some form of middle ground where those who are not active can use bid bots to earn passive income and support the platform with their investment. But it's then upto the bid bot owners to be responsible and ensure the votes don't create incentives for behaviour that damages the platform

Yeah I agree

I do like the way you’re running this and the fact that you support UA is good too, I’m just not a huge fan of the bidbots even though I’ve considered delegating to smartsteem too

If @partiko manages to get their trending page with bidbot promoted posts seperated, then people will need to engage more SP holders and get organic votes to get to trending. That would be a good outcome in my view

Thanks @kabir88

I appreciate your compliments!!

Happy Steeming 😊 And please let me know if I can assist you with something. My contact details are on my homepage

Thanks @nathanmars, that's a very generous offer. For now, just keep doing what you're doing. We need more great examples like you of people really investing in the future of the steem network
