LeoFinance overtakes GEMS as the most rewarded community on Hive

in LeoFinance3 months ago

Good day!

Well, it is unless you look at the Crypto market 🙈

Long-term, long-term - close the price feed and write a post, that's what I'm doing anyway.


During my sleep, I received a message on discord regarding Communities on Hive.

Have you been keeping track of how many active communities Hive has in given week/month that have at least 1 post in them?

We seem to have a metric ton now. Perhaps I never noticed it was over 300 just from a quick look down the communities page on PeakD seeing how many have 1 Hive in rewards pending.

Well yes of course, I regularly monitor all these metrics.... Not really, but it sounded like something worth further investigation, and so thank you for the inspiration today.

According to HiveSQL, there are 2291 Communities registered and 2208 of these have at least one account subscribed.

Three Communities (hive-148441, hive-174578, hive-196037, or GEMS, OCD, DTUBE) have over 5000 accounts subscribed, and 45 Communities have at least 1000 accounts signed up.


As far as activity, lets cut straight to the pending payouts and payouts.

As of Monday February 22, 2021, 16:06 Central European Time (CET), there is 'active' content in 434 Communities. However, 47 of these Communities currently have content in which the total pending payout is 0.

Here are the top 20 Communities, ordered by pending payout value (past 7 days).

CommunityPending_payout_value
hive-16792213432.7170
hive-14844110786.0620
hive-1402174507.5520
hive-1050174223.7900
hive-1205863258.6310
hive-1637722745.7310
hive-1294962660.1790
hive-1949132586.8790
hive-1967082065.2380
hive-1752541858.4610
hive-1960371856.9090
hive-1036781649.0240
hive-1745781634.2390
hive-1935521619.3220
hive-1565091528.5280
hive-1938161430.6230
hive-1200781406.1300
hive-1813351351.9640
hive-1290171144.1890
hive-1101351075.7110

I have purposely left the Community 'codename' as is, partly for a little suspense (although the post title is a bit of a giveaway and partly) because I'm lazy. However, I've pulled my socks up for the all important chart....


Content is 'active' for 7 days and so the above doesn't tell much of a story, only that 'hive-167922' (Yes that is LeoFinance!) has content totaling the highest pending payout values this past week.

Importantly, the above values and those in the chart below are the HBD/HIVE(VESTS) pending, not Tribe tokens.

And so what do the the top 10 Communities in terms of pending payout look like when totaling the total payout values of content within them since late March last year.

image.png

Last April, it is obvious from the chart which Community was the mostly heavily rewarded. 36502 pieces of content (posts and comments) in the GEMS Community received a payout, compared with 6180 items in LeoFinance.

Also, GEMS had/has the backing of three large accounts, although it was stated that they would not curate solely in this community.

The major supporters of GEMS @appreciator, @rocky1 and @upmewhale regularly curate in other communities and at times we are supporting more outside the community. source

Since last April the total rewards have fallen, along with price of Hive, across almost all long-standing Communities with a clear exception, LeoFinance.

We can see from the chart that the total payout value of base layer rewards in the LeoFinance was higher than that of GEMS in January 2021. And so far this month, including or excluding what is pending in the table above, the rewards within the LeoFinance Community are ahead again.

As far as rewarded content in January 2021, GEMS had 25364 items receiving a reward (30.5% less items than April 2020). And in LeoFinance, 63893 content items were rewarded - over 10 times more than in April 2020.

There is likely much more than can be discussed here, but the main take away is that LeoFinance (not including the LEO token currently valued at around 2.49 HIVE!), is currently the most rewarded Community on Hive, in HIVE.

Cheers!

Sort:  

I posted in GEMS for a while and then moved on because I was basically told I would never get an upvote because my account is too large. While upvotes aren't the only reason I post, it just made more sense to move along and not have my content cluttering up their feed. I still use the tag from time to time, but I know I will never get any attention from them. They seem to support smaller accounts and a handful of their "favorites" so it is hard to break into that community anyway. Thankfully, Leo seems to be a really great fit for me.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Hmm. Well I guess it is good that their focus in newer content. How that new account/content arrives in GEMS so quickly is a bit of a mystery though.

I suspect most people here have some sort of interest in Finance (personal finance, crypto, etc), and so there should be room for all.

Yeah, without directly calling them out, there was always something a bit fishy there. I didn't really feel like my account was that big back then, yet they apparently did. Meanwhile they were consistently supporting other accounts that were obviously on their way to becoming larger than mine. I know I probably just sound bitter, but there were some definite red flags at times.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Hmm, yeah. I'll not go digging, some things are better left unsaid :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Content is King, information is valuable, Hive communities growth is slowly developing with adoption of clear numbering used.

Call it the settling in stage, now for real growth, stop watching growth to bounce from place to place, it is happening even with ebb and flow of crytpcurrencies all around being hailed bigger or better.

@tipu curate

I'd like to think that this is only the stage setting phase, and we are preparing for a major influx of investors and users :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

People are so distracted with crypto becoming a household name to many, older members are watching markets more closely, keeping up to date.

My deep gut feel, settling down will take place with members and investors arriving, so many excellent front-ends working hard to access new.

!ENGAGE 25

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

Laying a foundation, that is for sure.

The key will be filling in the communities with users.

Overall, the growth rate on Hive is rather flat. We still require that "breakthrough" community.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Is Project Blank going to be a community on Hive like Leofinance, or is it something else entirely? I think that would be the "breakthrough" community.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I think it is going to be more of an application similar to Peakd and Hive.blog. I guess it could have a community opened up but it is more of an interface that is general in nature similar to what I just mentioned.

Either way, I expect it to be a very popular application. We all can promote if rather easily and I think attract newer users.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The key will be filling in the communities with users.

Everything has been spread thin, all tokens ans/or communities opening are simply attracting current members within the Hive already.

Press releases, content on Medium or similar should be on-going, sharing to older platforms helps keep momentum up, more places to be used to attract.

Hive split under a year ago March 20th, finding "breakthrough" needs a robust push from excellent content marketers we have here in Hive.

Hahaha good advice.

close the price feed and write a post

Pretty much my plans for the day, keep CMC closed and find something else to do!

I've never heard of the GEMS community. Where can I see what is posted in it?

I'm rather enjoying the dip. I got an order, I put in a few weeks ago, filled. I thought I'd well and truly missed the boat for that one. 😁

Still one left outstanding. Let's see if that gets filled too!

It's not like you to be slightly behind the times Gillian :D

Well done on the dip buy, I presume that's BTC and not HIVE :P

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

<It's not like you to be slightly behind the times Gillian :D

Ha, ha, bloody ha! 😂 I can't believe that's the number one community. I've never seen a reference to it anywhere else.

I presume that's BTC

Of course. 😁 Actually I panicked a bit when it started going up and that trade was higher than the current price.

Then there were 2 that were pretty much the bottom that I set up a few weeks ago.

They were all teeny, tiny though so it's neither here nor there in the big scheme of things. I maybe need to get a bit braver next time.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah, I've never heard of GEMS either.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Glad it's not just me then. 😂

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I didn't expect this at all. I thought the Leo community was the most rewarded when you add up the hive and leo earnings. This makes Leo Finance even better than I imagined :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah I wasn't sure either until today, I thought the same. Now, with LEO as well it's a cakewalk :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Time for Leo to be top 20 witness now!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The time for that was 6 months ago.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yep. I'm a little annoyed this isn't already the case. Looking at the top 20 there are a few witnesses who have seemingly done very little (apart from producing blocks) for Hive thus far.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yes that is a travesty.

Some are still getting rewards and arent even really on hive anymore.

Hopefully we will see more Leo supporters powering up and moving Leofinance into consensus.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I don't understand why they aren't already. They need some whale votes.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Let's make it happen soon :)

If you come across HIVE whales please let them know about LeoFinance.

At the same time HIVE needs more middle class stakeholders.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Interestingly enough, your chart rather tracks the price of Bitcoin. lol Coincidence? I think not. Between that and the amazing things the devs are working on, I can't see this place going quiet any time soon. Something is building and people want to be a part of it.

Always interesting to see these statistics. Thanks for taking the time to pull and organize them.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Nice spot :)

I guess the market upswing is a part of it, that and the huge effort the team have put in these past couple of years. They deserve much credit.

Sweet. That sounds quite bullish for Hive with that many active.

I was surprised at the total number on Communities, and the total with at least a potential payout on the way. Will be interesting to check back on those numbers in a few months time.

Thanks for the encouragement :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

We only need a few more to flip Reddit 😂.

I was shocked as well. It should really be bigger news.

Am I wrong if I say that Leofinance is also the community with the highest rewards in tribe token (using hive exchange rate) ?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Very likely although I couldn't say for sure as it would require 2nd layer parsing skills, which I don't possess :)

Hard for a targeted app like Leofinance to top peakd and hiveblog since they are general purpose.

I can pretty much guarantee that the blank app will have numbers that top all other apps.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

well, alexa rank tells a different story. Give it a couple months :)

Or to quote you

"I see you have low standards "

😂

How soon? I think with Project Blank, comments could take the lead. I'd be surprised if more top level posts were produced than on hive.blog / peakd though.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

top posts can be from alts and bots. Check alexa rank, for a better idea of real users amd traffic. Not perfect, but better.

The gap is closing. fast.

True. But it's likely a bot would have nothing in the metadata for the app - unless someone like peakd are trying to inflate their numbers! :O

Well I wanted to see where LF stands right now - I just pulled some data for only posts created through various frontends - Top 5 are

Yeah, room for growth in top level posts.

For that query you want to remove everything after, and including, the '/', especially if you want to dive further back.

Oh yeah right you are right , got it.

Hey no . Bots posts will not show peakd , hive.blog. they will appear as beem or some other app . The above data are only real users posting from those particular frontends.

I know one person doing 4 posts on peakd from 4 accounts. Every day. Do you count it as 4 real users?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Oh got your point now. I was mentioning about just bots. Yes data becomes inaccurate when we consider Alts.

NNNNNNNNNNIIIIIIIIIIIIICCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Considering the size of those accounts that have focused on GEMS (and still are looking through recent votes), it is a huge feat. This is where the content and engagement is flowing at present.

I wasnt even familiar with GEMS.

Not even sure what that is.

I like that we have communities within Hive as like minded people can now interact with each other. I should also mention it's a big part of those admins and curators that keep the hype within those communities and it's good to see all the work they put in.

Question:
Is there a way to tie a community on hive into a default post to another tribe token? Communities and tribes seem to get intermixed and I feel it's going to lead to confusion pressing forward.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah I think community leader hyping things up, when there is reason to, is a positive for a community.

I think yes is the answer to your question. I posted using the leo interface today but also tagged 3 other tribes, so I get some tokens there too. Is that what you mean?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Wow..... Alright! This all comes about as a consequence of the value that the community is providing and giving back! Great content equals followers!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Agreed. And much more to come from the LeoFinance tribe this year.

Yup. More people and more finance focused content has done it.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Leo is the king of communities and tribes! an extremely awesome thing is that leo shows the road to every other tribe and that they can do it too!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The team seem to have a crazy work ethic, building during the low times to take advantage of the bull, nice!

Leofinance has become my favorite community because I can just use it without much thinking. It's all thanks to the way it does the curation rewards. It's linear without time of curation gamification like on Hive. I upvote posts that I like. I upvote comments that I like. I don't care at all whether anyone else has upvoted the post or comment before me.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Linear rewards have encouraged some sizeable investment, a winner for LEO.

Wow, thumbs up to leofinance, a lot has really been put to place over the year. With time, Leo will definitely climb high enough to compete with the likes of litecoin and binance 😎😎

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's a bold statement, but who knows!

I'm not surprised, Leofinace is like the unfulfilled promise of conventional "Blog and Earn" on the blockchain.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

LeoFinance is currently the most rewarded Community in HIVE.

I think, the major cause of that is the commitment of Leo Whales - may be we don't have the same in HIVE.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's a lot of money spread around but it only makes sense, considering that it is the place people go to when they want to talk or read about money 🤷‍♂️

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

With the upcoming launch of ProjectBlank, it will surely boost Leo.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Let's be honest, it's been more genuinely reward a long time. I know its difficult to pick up factually, but three former bid bot owners simply using their huge stakes to create an income from creation for themselves is hardly a sincere reflection.
Having said that, they don't make many mistakes with the posts they reward and users get a nice upvote so swings and roundabouts I guess.
I think it would now be nice to see the quality improve here on Leo, the amount of cheap re-written low effort dross is staggering!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I can see the charts, but I'm always quick to explain that LEOfinance posts need to be about "finance". Don't want anyone getting a finger pointed for using the community, but posting the wrong content.

So... I guess what I'm saying is; what if people don't post about finance?

Of course, this is good news, but I think it will bring more disadvantages than advantages in the end. That brings many to the idea that you could have your piece of the pie and before you know it, you're sinking into spam.

What a journey and, interesting part, it is still continued. This is not a competition but, I think, it would be positive for the chain if communities consider it as a competition.
