Possible GOLOS bubble

Steem price has been roughly following a hype cycle peaking in July and falling to the pre-bubble levels in September. While it's impossible to accurately predict future states of complex systems, it's probable that Golos' bubble won't be as pronounced.
Latest Steem hardforks with economy changes are expected to be implemented by Golos team in the coming days. Preliminary announcement indicate plans to change power down period to 20 weeks. In comparison, Steem power down period in July 2016 was 102 weeks. These changes should significantly increase selling pressure. Obviously, there are a lot of other factors in play.

Curation bot services

If you are a STEEM whale (some dolphins too), you've been sharedropped Golos Power tokens. I'm running a curation bot for Golos, so get in touch if you are interested in getting curation rewards.



Very interesting stats and comparison. Looks like Golos activity is spiking the last few days, which has not yet translated into a price increase.

On your curation bot, is that open sourced? I'm looking for more projects to implement on my new Raspberry Pi 3. If not, I might be interested in what you are offering and i would like to email you about it, or email me at kenny at, thanks!

Nice analysis. Are you a Russian speaker? Do you know a rough timeline for when they'll change the interest payments and power down time metrics? I'm dostoyevsky on Golos.

Thanks! Economy changes hard fork is being tested and prepared for deployment. AFAIK it's a matter of days. Same username on Golos :)

I was hoping someone would take the time I don't have and do this. Thank you!
Keep it up. upvoted and resteemed

What is GOLOS ? lots of information in russian I cant read. TLDR ?

That is, Golos - is russian Steem.

It took another 100 days. Will there be new stats? )
