Become A Whale For A Day Using Ecency Boost

in #ecency4 months ago

whale_for_a_day

We have all seen those memes on Hive, when you go to your latest post and you have a lot of votes but they are dust votes and none of the whales has visited or the big curation accounts.

Well, I've been using the Ecency frontend quite a bit for some of my posts and one of the great features that was pointed out to me was the "Ecency Points".

This is like the token for using the Ecency Dapp. However, it isn't tradable on Hive Engine or anything but does give you some cool features that you can use.

Those features are Gift, Promotion or Boost.

To gift your points allows you to gift them to another user. Promote will allow you to use your points to highlight your post on the Ecency app. The final function is to boost a post.

Now I have tested the promotion function out and was using it mostly until I discovered the boost function. I tested this and boosted one of my posts and it got a great $1 vote which is nice.

However, what is the fun in boosting your own posts when you can boost somebody else's post and be a whale for a day!?!

My current vote at 100% is worth $0,20 or 0,37 Hive. So being able to give out a vote 5 times my 100% vote value is pretty cool. You can also adjust the vote to higher if you have more points but I have been sticking with $1 votes.

I've boosted a post today that I thought was pretty good and it feels great to support the community with a decent size vote and reward people making a great effort on their posts. There are so many good posts, that I want to give out more even.

More Whale Votes Thanks to Ecency

I am regularly checking on Ecency for points and I usually get 1 or 2 boosts per week. Some of the ways you can really boost gaining Ecency points are by commenting using the Ecency Dapp for up to 5000 points, Delegating to Ecency for daily points and if you write a post using Ecency for 15000 points.

I did a test over a few hours of my normal engaging with the hive community but used Ecency to comment and after 16 comments, I earned 39027 points! So if you can engage in the community with others for just 16 comments a day, you could give a huge Whale vote out every 2 or 3 days!!! Below you can see how I have gathered Ecency points in this experiment:

points1

As you can see with the commenting, the more you comment, the earned points go down daily until resetting for the next day. So it's important to log in and comment with Ecency every day.

If I can use Ecency more then I can then be a whale for a day- every 2 or 3 days for at least one post! The great thing about this is that it gives the author your support $0,50 (half of $1 vote) which is nearly 1 Hive and doesn't cost you anything!!

Over 1 week that is nearly 3 Hive or $1,50!!

Over 1 month that is 12 Hive or $6 that you can boost your curation of the community and it won't cost you anything!! The power of the blockchain never ceases to amaze me every day.

Have you discovered Ecency Boost yet?

Thanks for reading.

I boosted my own posts a couple of times but I felt real satisfaction when I boosted other people's posts. I felt like a whale indeed.

I don't get how you get a lot of points by just commenting. I don't think I get more than 10 points for doing that or am I not understanding your statement?

You are right, it starts with 5 points, but they use the decimal point which looks like 5.000 that means 5000 in German number system! Thanks for correction. 😉 !CTP

Oh.. okay. Thanks for clarifying.

Thanks for picking up on that ! 😎

Thanks Now I get the boost (honestly I did not know what it did), how about the promote what does that exactly do because I am not sure if I fully get it....but I am using ecency and I use it for commenting a lot but I did not know that commenting through it brought the bigger rewards (I thought any comment did the trick regardless of the frontend) !CTP

Promote is apparently giving your article more promenance on the ecency website, but I didn't notice any good effects from this.
Boost however is pretty good and gives a nice upvote on an article of your choice.

You only get the points if you use the ecency front end, so its worth to make sure you do at least 10+ comments on ecency each day. !CTP

Well in that case lets leave another and with promote I think my articles have a bigger chance to get voted as a part of Encouragement program. But that might be a coincidence

you have been hitting it out of the park with your articles. keep up the good work!

That's so nice of you to boost other people's post :)

Very detailed explanation about the use of Ecency points. Some of our newbies don't know what is used for. Thank you for sharing this post with us and I am reblogging it right away for more eyes.

Thank you. That is great that you can spread the word. !PIZZA

We have it as a contest so when you use the promote on Alive do 1-5 alive tokens to earn tickets daily then once a week the winners are announced. @mypathtofire 😎
You can use more than 5 that is just the limit on ticket entry to the contest

Ah, thanks for explaining Ben. I usually burn each ALIVE post. It's a great competition! 🙂 !CTP !ALIVE

I always forget about my Ecency points. I probably have a couple thousand saved up by now. I use the app for replying and commenting when I am at home, but I never really post from it.

You should check, you could give out some monster votes. 🙂
I've installed the App now, so hopefully, I can use it more often to give out some boosts. !CTP

It's been a lifesaver when I am at home and I don't feel like powering up my laptop!

I have 14,500 points.

woo. that's awesome!! smashing it.😎

This is a great, and altruistic way of using the boost @mypathtofire
I wasn't even aware of this function with Ecency, you learn something new every day it seems 😂
Well done to you for spreading the love around becoming a whale for a day 👍

Oh that looks like FUN! I use to use enency on my phone, but for some reason the photo thumbnails don't work anymore. I switched to plain-ol HIVE.blog on my phone, it seems to be working fine. I do miss earning those points though, I had a lot at one point. Should have held on to them!

Hopefully they will work that out, the points seem a great bonus on using Ecency. I do like to use Hive.blog too though 🙂 !ALIVE !CTP
