Hey everyone! Thank you to those who had patience with us during our migration on to hive. Good news is that now it is fully working again and will begin to send out payouts.
For those of you still delegating to @ocdb on the Steem database please note that it is halted there indefinitely. So make sure to undelegate if you haven't already, if you have a difficult time deciding what to do we can tell you that we've never seen so many undelegations that followed with a powerdown in such a quick succession before. ;)
Here's some info on @ocdb for those who may not be aware!
Ocdb used to be a bid bot with a curated whitelist that took no cut itself. When the EIP was put in place it went fully manual curation and now takes a 10% cut which is one of the lowest of any curation projects out there. Another 5% was meant to initially go towards tipping but the tip bot has been delayed for a long time and we're hoping it will exist soon so we can start tipping content creators outside of our platform with Hive to get them to check it out. That 5% was instead used for giveaways and tournaments to grow the Gods Unchained community on Steem and after that it was used to buy up the ENGAGE token which we'll continue to do once steem-engine has migrated over to hive and given us access over our ENGAGE tokens again.
Ocdb curates mainly in the OCD community but also the daily nominated posts by the OCD curation team that are featured in the compilation posts of @ocd. Other than that it is also curating posts in the Hive Gaming Community. One thing it has in common with all communities is that it does not attempt to maximize curation rewards but instead encourages all stakeholders to curate manually in the communities we curate by casting votes late (usually after 6h of post age). This means that those who want to use their stake to curate and curate in line to what we like to reward will earn some higher curation rewards knowing the @ocdb vote comes in later.
If you are a stakeholder who doesn't have the time to curate yourself but want to earn daily returns from your stake you can delegate to @ocdb and see your returns live on our website which updates after one payout showing your username as well if your delegation is over at least 250 Hive Power.
Here is a simple way to delegate to @ocdb, just copy the link below and switch the "1000" into the Hive Power you want to delegate:
After you have delegated your username will appear on our website: https://thegoodwhales.io/delegators.html after the first payout which occurs daily at 8 PM GMT+0
If you like what we do and would want to support our consensus witness, you can do so through HiveSigner as well through this link here, we appreciate every vote!

*Additional info about the bot:
It usually takes 7 days for post payouts so in reality you'd have to wait 7 days until you can start receiving a curation cut but with @ocdb you can after 1 payout start getting a share depending on your size of the delegation compared to the total, in return you will instead stop receiving payouts 1 day after you undelegate.
The account is in constant powerdown to be able to pay delegators their share, usually curation rewards are always in Hive Power but by delegating to @ocdb you can enjoy your rewards in liquid Hive. For fastest growth you can power up your liquids every now and then and re-delegate your new stake to @ocdb which many stakeholders like to do. When re-delegating remember to use your total Hivepower as it doesn't "add to your existing delegation" and when you want to undelegate you simply "delegate 0 HP" to @ocdb.
Let us know in the comments if you have any questions!
Come grow with us and post in our community knowing someone will check out your post and possibly curate it if it abides by our rules! See ya on the chain! :)
Huge thanks to @jga for migrating the bot over to Hive! Post rewards going to him!
