Upvote Shares Level 20 Available...

in #curation7 months ago

@upvoteshares is a project from @costanza that aims to provide Daily Upvotes based on a fair model that is proving to be sustainable and scalable over time. This Project is mainly aimed towards Steemians with a long term mindset. The model mechanics are better explained here and Curation Dividend Rewards were introduced recently to overcome the 50/50 Reward Split gap recently.

If you are not fully up to date with this project, I highly recommend reading all the details in the links above.

Quality Control

This project since the start has had both minimum content quality and SP investment requirements in order to be part of it. So far this never really has been an issue and only a notice has been sent out in regards to lazy Actifit posts. With everything that has been happening with downvote squads, I want to make sure the model of this project does not get under fire and will be keeping a closer eye out for content that can be considered a 'vote farming operation'.


Each post should have something Unique or Personal. This can be the main thumbnail image, post title, content itself, the purpose of the post,...

The account has reached 5082 SP unlocking level 20 (See Table) after level 19 opened up over a month ago. This means 50 new shares from the @upvoteshares account that spreads out daily upvotes become available.

Share Price4.400 STEEMCan be recovered at any given time by selling the share on the market, but comes with a 0.200 STEEM exit cost which benefits all other shareholders.
Share Entry Cost0.300 STEEMWill fully be used to Buy Delegation to slightly increase the upvote worth and allows 1 Minnow Share Sponsorship.
Total4.700 STEEMThe total Steem for 1 Share

1 Daily upvote from the @upvoteshares AccountThis for as long as this project runs. (the 4.400 STEEM Share Price can be claimed back in case the project ever ends or sold at any given time!)
Tribe Upvotes800 PAL-500 LEO-82000 SPORTS is staked by the account which will increase the payouts on posts with that tag!
1 @minnowshares Sponsorship GiveawayCan be Sponsored to someone by choice. Only accounts with roughly around <500$ worth of STEEM or that currently have between 1 and 9 sponsorships qualify. The current sponsorship count will be updated soon on the @minnowshares account.

At any given time, the amount of SP in the account will at least be 10% higher compared to the current share price based on the number of shares. [ Example Level 20 Price = 4.400 STEEM | Minimum Powered Up SP in Account = (4.400 STEEM x 1050 SHARES)x1.1 = 4840 SP ]

Each share represents an equal minimum daily voting % from the account that can be calculated. For Level 20 this is 1000% / 1050 Shares = 0.95% Upvote.

This is the Minimum Guaranteed number in case every single share is active and all daily upvotes are used without counting any of the value creating mechanisms the project offers. The minimum value goes up each time a new level is reached because shares will always become more expensive as the account grows and extra SP is being added each new level. Those who got in on previous levels paid less for each share and have increased their minimum return a bit (see numbers).

To compensate for the 50/50 curation rewards that were introduced with HF21, this program now also pays out Curation Dividend Rewards. The latest payout report can be found here

The account currently has 6778SP and the upvote percentage for each share will be set between 2.8%-3%. Add to that the extra upvotes that are given out from the staked tribe tokens, the Curation Reward Dividends, the fact that the minimum returns for each share increase every new level and it's easy to see how the returns currently for active shareholders are far greater compared to the 10x self-upvote reference. The model that is used which always makes the shares more expensive each new level along with the fact that all unused upvotes flow back to active shareholders make this all possible.

  1. Every Upvote Share comes with 1 Minnow Share that can be sponsored. The ones that get sponsored get on the auto-upvote list from the @minnowshares account until the next level is reached. Everyone who manages to get sponsored 9 Minnow Shares over time can claim 1 Upvote Share.

  2. The account of every Shareholder will be followed by the @upvoteshares account, this will help to increase the followers_mvest needed to get/increase busy.org | busy.pay upvotes and also helps to boost your @steem-ua score.

Send the required STEEM for the number of shares you want (Shares x 4.700 STEEM) to the @upvoteshares account with the memo

Payment "enter amount of shares" Level 20 Shares, I understand how this project works and agree with all terms and conditions (https://steemit.com/steemit/@upvoteshares/upvote-shares-or-terms-and-conditions)

I will review the request (make sure you have read what this program is about) and grant the shares adding you to the upvote list leaving a message below this post or decline the request and send the Steem back to you along with the reason it was declined. If you are not sure if you qualify or if there are shares left available feel free to make a request in the comments below.

If you are new to this project, feel free to do all the calculations yourself and ask any of the existing shareholders about their experience with this project during the ~20 months it has been running.

@upvotebuilders was another project that provided Steemians with some basic upvotes but shut down recently due to the fact that they got targetted by downvoters. Anyone who was part of that Project that meets the minimum quality requirements and wants to become part of this project as a way to replace the lost upvotes can do so while the entry cost of 0.300 STEEM for each share will be covered by the program this Level!

The reward of this comment goes 100 % to the author upvoteshares. This is done by setting the beneficiaries of this comment to 100 %.

Please 2 Shares for me!

Hey @levo-miron. While I personally don't really have an issue with Lotto type posts, I am forced to be more selective with what gets upvotes by this project from now on as downvoters likely will see posts like yours as 'vote farming' as they also get marked by cheetah.

I will refund the steem that was sent over for the 2 shares right after making this reply and hope you understand. Good luck regardless to get things going on the Steem Blockchain.

Kind Regards,

That's no problem at all for me! You're in charge here, and you have to make sure that everything runs according to the rules. After all, since hf21 we have "other times".

Just to explain, for my projects "no upvote, no resteem, no follow" is valid, therefore no vote-farming can be seen here.

cheetah only points out that a similar contribution already exists, no wonder, the rules always stay the same. :-)

I think you are doing a great job here, steem on

I've just sent the payment for 3 Shares. Thank you!

Thanks @trincowski

3 shares [Share 1003 to 1005] have succesfully been assigned to you. Feel free to let me know everyone you want to sponsor. You now have 42 Shares and your upvotes remain at 100% and the curation reward dividend multiplier for all your shares has increased from +7.8% to +8.4%

Thanks !

Payment one share sent, sponsor @shasta

Thanks @bashadow

1 shares [Share 1006] has succesfully been assigned to you and the sponsorship has been noted . You now have 16 Shares and your upvotes have been increased to 48% (the % for each share might drop a bit still in case the voting power doesn't hold up) the curation reward dividend multiplier for all your shares has increased from +3% to +3.2%

Didn't we talk about my actifits not meeting the requirements?
If not, I would like 10 shares then :D
Wanna hear you out before transffering :D

Hey @cwow2, yes indeed. I still can't accept those unfortunately as I can't give reasons for downvoters to start targetting this project. I tagged everyone who was part of the @upvotebuilders project that stopped their activity recently. Thanks for showing interest and good luck hitting your 10k SP goal before 2021

Not sure how you have your voting set up, but you can use steemrewarding.com to add your shareholders to an auto-vote list, but WAIT, hear me out..

you can set up TONS of parameters to filter out/filter in only the types of posts from these authors that you feel fit quality control. You can for example vote on all @cwow2's post automatically BUT exclude any post with the actifit tag (or even the word "actifit" in the post), or you can only vote if the word count is higher than 'x', or only vote on an actifit post if it has a higher than 'x' word count. You can also set parameters to only vote if the posts reward is higher/lower than x.xx STEEM, or only vote if another specific person also voted on that post.. And more filters I am forgetting (plus, you can mix and match all filters and set up multiple rule sets per author until your heart is content with the combination that fits your quality control ;)

(Also almost forgot! I feel I should mention, as well as all kinds of rules you can set, you can also set the max number of votes per day & per week that you should give each author too!)

$rewarding 50%

Hmm. Thanks for letting me know about this aswell :D
I didn't knew

The reward of this comment goes 100 % to the author upvoteshares. This is done by setting the beneficiaries of this comment to 100 %.

Sorry for the delay in reply, usually I'm much quicker on this but I've been busy.

Thanks for the steemrewarding info, sounds super uselful and I will sure look into it /test it out today and tomorrow.

The voting is currently done with steemauto set at 1 upvote max each day, some of the tribe tokens that the account has staked are done with multipliers.

Ye no problem! - I just couldn't remember if it was this project or another I talked to about it xD

Thanks! I have upped my game a bit with posts daily + actifit and having curation at 50+ effientive(spellcheck) :D

Nice to see you are "keeping on keeping on" here @upvoteshares / @costanza. Without any change to the original program. I believe, for all of your shareholders, that is very important.

Also good to see the "reach out" to the "sister" community. It will be interesting to see, given their recent experiences, what response you receive from these fellow Steemians.

If I don't have the opportunity otherwise, let me take it now to wish you and yours a 🎄 very merry Christmas! 🎄 And can't speak for your part of the world, but here we prefer ours to be a ... ☃ white Christmas! ❄ 😉

I've sent steem for ten if that's ok?

Sure @meesterboom, Thanks

10 shares [Share 1007 to 1016] have succesfully been assigned to you. Feel free to let me know everyone you want to sponsor. You now have 29 Shares and your upvotes have been increased to 87% (It might come down a bit for everyone if VP doesn't hold up). The curation reward dividend multiplier for all your shares has increased from +3.8% to +5.8%

Cheers man! Can I sponsor a new kid on the block @obercreative?

Hello, @upvoteshares / @costanza. Thanks for keeping this project going.

I've sent the payment for 5 shares. Thank you!



Thanks @ervin-lemark

5 shares [Share 1017 to 1021] have succesfully been assigned to you. Feel free to let me know who you want to sponsor. You now have 30 Shares and your upvotes have been increased to 90% (It might come down a bit for everyone if VP doesn't hold up). The curation reward dividend multiplier for all your shares has increased from +5.0% to +6.0%

Hey @upvoteshares, here is a little bit of BEER from @ervin-lemark for you. Enjoy it!

If you still have some shares. 2 for me please!
Let me know if they are still available and I will sent the Steem.


Thanks Peter, 29 are currently still available, that will be 27 if you take the 2. allready assigned them, feel free to send the 9.40 STEEM when you can

2 shares [Share 1022 and 1023] have succesfully been assigned to you. Feel free to let me know who you want to sponsor. You now have 30 Shares and your upvotes have been increased to 90% (It might come down a bit for everyone if VP doesn't hold up). The curation reward dividend multiplier for all your shares has increased from +5.0% to +6.0%

That is very good of you to be keeping in mind the people who were impacted by the other project. May they find upvoteshare as good alternative and may it not be targeted by the drama.

I've just sent the payment for 1 Share. And I was a part of @upvotebuilders

Thank You Very Much

Thanks @wongbraling and welcome to this project.

1 shares [Share 1024] has succesfully been assigned to you. Feel free to let me know who you want to sponsor. You are now followed by this account and have been added to the upvote list for 3%. In order to also receive Curation Reward Dividendes each new level you will need at least 11 Shares. If there is anything unclear, always feel free to ask.

I am afraid that all of these "circle voting" projects will be attacked like upvotebuilders was 🤔 even SBI is in the hot seat right now!

I don't see projects like @qurator or @steem-ua being attacked and @upvoteshares is similar to those as there are both quality and SP investment requirements before it's possible to join and the model itself is really solid. I can in a way understand that downvoters have problems if a program just upvotes anything or if it's build on a highly questionable economic model like SBI. It' hard to argue that programs that provide some basic upvotes push the price down as they really help people stay on the platform from my experience.

Well what ever their reasoning hf21 and #newsteem has already caused a bit of discomfort for previously regular posters... who knows past the seemingly obvious agenda of increasing their own rewards as whales where the enforcement of control will stop.

So 10 "shares" cost 47 STEEM?

Payment for 10 shares sent. I think.

Thanks @davedickeyyall! I returned 3 STEEM (10x0.300 STEEM as part of the promo for Upvotebuilders members this leve, the usual entry Fee that is used to buy delegation this level is covered by the program)

10 shares [Share 1025 to 1034] have succesfully been assigned to you. You have 10 sponsorships to give ou (max 2 to the same person and only accounts that have <500$ worth of SP powered up) so feel free to let me know who you want them to go to. You are now followed by this account and have been added to the upvote list for a 30% daily upvote. In order to also receive Curation Reward Dividendes each new level that opens up you will need at least 11 Shares. If there is anything unclear, always feel free to ask.

Kind Regards,

10 sponsorships?

Yes, similar to SBI this program allows each share a Sponsorship to help smaller accounts along the way with the difference that it doesn't come at the cost of shareholder returns. (with SBI it's 50-50) Basically there is a second account (@minnowshares) where the ones that get sponsored each round will get upvotes from during the entire duration of that level. Everyone who manages to get enough sponsorships gets a free share (paid for by the program) in the @upvoteshares account for permanent upvotes. Over 50 of these shares have been given out the past 20 months.

So feel free to let me know if you know some steemians that you want to show some support (it's not mandatory). The idea is that only smaller accounts can be sponsored (max 500$ worth of SP) and you can give out maximum 2 to the same account each level (just to avoid abuse of this mechanic).

I hope that clears it out.

(I know everything can be quite complicated at first but many of the small rules have a function and the model itself actually works really well)

Hey thank you Dave for thinking of me! This is cool! Thanks for sharing this. Maybe in time I'll buy some shares.

Nice, if you have any questions about this program free to ask away and I'll do my best to clear it out.

Thanks, Sponsorships have been noted (I assigned 2 to some of them based on SP and post payouts). All will be added to the @minnowshares upvote list once level 20 is complete.

Oh No... seems I've been sleeping this round... are there any shares left for lvl 20?

Hey @braaiboy, sorry for the delay in reply. I've been taking this period where things have slowed down a bit to let it all run on it's own. There are still shares left in Level 20. I must say that I am currently way more selective when it comes down to allowing shares just to reduce the chance of this project ever getting into trouble. If that regard, I'm not sure the incubot account should get more shares. I don't have any issues with it being part of this project though.

Feel free to let me know your thought.

Congratulations @upvoteshares! You have completed the following achievement on the Steem blockchain and have been rewarded with new badge(s) :

You distributed more than 20000 upvotes. Your next target is to reach 21000 upvotes.

You can view your badges on your Steem Board and compare to others on the Steem Ranking
If you no longer want to receive notifications, reply to this comment with the word STOP

Vote for @Steemitboard as a witness to get one more award and increased upvotes!

Not sure if this is still happening, I know it's old now..

I was on hiatus for awhile and was so sad to come back and see the downvote brigade was still causing drama..

Sadly, I removed my delegation from @upvotebuilders today.

I was a member of @upvotebuilders, loved that project and I've always loved SBI. Can I still get on board with this?

Hey @kharma.scribbles, sure you can still get on board and there are still shares left in current level. Things have been going a bit slower as of late because of the state of Steem but this project continues to go strong and growing the value for it's members.

Feel free to let me know is you want to get in or if anything is unclear (all info and numbers are available to check). I'm planning to make an update post on the progression to Level 21 along with some staked tribe tokens that have been added.

So as a former @upvotebuilders member, how much is it per share? 3 STEEM?

The price for 1 share for former @upvotebuilders members this level is 4.4 STEEM instead of 4.7 STEEM.

That 0.3 Steem for each share is always used to buy 90 day delegation which benefits all existing shareholders and will be provided by the project.

The 4.4 Steem gets fully powered up and you don't lose it as it will be powered down and refunded in case the project ever ends and it can also be sold to someone else at any given time given a small exit fee that gets burned benefitting all existing shareholders.

The upvote % for each share is currently set at 3% (It gets lowered as the account grows and more shares become available) from the account that has 5355 SP + 1315 Leased SP and also includes tribe upvotes with multipliers. (920 Pal x2 | 200000 SPORTS x5 | 500 LEO x5 | 1000 DBLOG x2)

Since the price of shares always goes up each level the returns also go up ( See Table. Also everyone with 11 shares or more gets curation reward dividends each time a new level opens up (See Lateste Report

I will be making an update poste tomorrow which will state how many shares are currently left in Level 20.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask!
