Indiaunited 2.0 - Active again with a lot more energy this time

in IndiaUnited6 months ago

Namasthe from the Indiaunited community. We hope everyone is doing good. It has been nearly two years since the community and the Discord server was active. There were several reasons for the same. We couldn't move forward due to various factors. To quote a few things:

  • We had a crypto ban in India where the government announced that cryptocurrencies will not be considered as legal tender.
  • The price of Steem and other cryptocurrencies dropped slowly and people lost interest.
  • We did not have enough investors and community leaders from India to drive this and many people lost hope.
  • Many Indian exchanges were closed and there were very few options to exchange crypto for INR.

Now the first good news is that Crypto is back in India. Though we still don't have any big exchanges yet in India, we do have options to trade crypto using peer to peer options provided by some of the exchanges. With this good news, we also wanted to reinstate activities on the Indiaunited community. We wanted to make a good start after we moved to Hive blockchain. The existing funds we had in the account have been moved to Hive now and we have also initiated a power-down on Steem to move the remaining funds to the hive.

Indiaunited Community is waking up again

Two years back this community was started on Steem blockchain by a group of like-minded individuals. We even came up with this name for a reason to unite all Indians on this blockchain. After a nice 2 years of sleep, we are back again with the same moto but this time with more new ideas for community development. Two years back we had a curation trail and an active discord server all the discussions and fun used to happen. Today we have over 700 members in our discord server where some are still very active. With this post, we would like to reinstate all the activities. Below are the plans to move forward:

Community Registration

We had a registration process earlier where people used to send 1 Steem with their details to get themselves registered with the community. Unfortunately, that was not a sustaining model for community growth. We have now introduced a new registration scheme where members should delegate a minimum of 100 HP to be a registered member of the community. All the registered members will get a Registered role on Discord. All the members with the Registered role will have access to the #post-promotion channel in the Indiaunited discord server where they can share their posts. The below steps can be followed to get yourself registered:

Step 1: Join Indiaunited discord server.

Step 2: Delegate a minimum of 100 HP to Indiaunited account.

You can visit #play-with-bots channel and use the command $india delegate 1000 to get a delegation link for 1000 HP delegation. You can enter any value as you desire and get the delegation link. The minimum is 100 and the maximum is anything.

There are also other ways by which you can do the delegation. Listing out some of the options below :

  • Peakd.com wallet page
  • Hive Keychain
  • Hive.blog wallet
  • Vessel wallet

I will let you figure out which will be the best way for you to delegate to Indiaunited account. Here are some handy links for delegations: 100HP, 250HP, 500HP, 1000HP. You can also delegate even more than that as 80% of the curation reward the community account gets will be shared with the delegators.

Step 3: Use the register command $india register <Your hive handle> in #play-with-bots channel to register. Please refer to the below screenshot to get more clarity.

Upon successful registration, the user will be granted with Registered role to get access to the post-promotion channel. The registered members can share their posts in the #post-promotion channel and it will be curated by the other community members. If the post is of great quality, the post will also receive a vote from the community account. Only the posts that have the tags - India, indiaunited, and hive-186042 will be accepted in the channel. Indiaunited bot in the discord server will take care of that.

What about newbies who do not have even 100 HP in their account?

Answer: Registration is FREE for them!

Yes, you heard it right. This is the important part. We provide free registration to members who do not have a minimum of 150 HP in their accounts. During the registration process, the bot will check if the member has a minimum of 150 HP and if their HP is below 150, they get a free registration. Please note that this free registration will only last for a limited period of time. As and when the newbie gradually increases their HP, they can delegate 100 HP or more to @indiaunited account as a token of giving back to the community.

Sharing the daily curation reward with the delegators

As Hive is based on proof of stake, the more HP we have in the community account, the more we will be able to curate and grow as a community. We would like to welcome new delegators to the community with an 80% curation reward share gained by the account in a day. The payout will be distributed every day and the share will be based on the amount of HP an individual delegates to the account. Yesterday we did a test run to distribute the rewards.

All the current delegators received the reward share for their delegations. The curation reward distribution is automatically done every day. The remaining 20% of the curation rewards every day will be used to grow the community.

Introducing manual curation

We used to have this earlier and we were having a channel on our discord for doing manual curation. The channel is back again and quality posts that are free from plagiarism and duplication and within the community guidelines will get a vote from the community account. In the current setup, all the delegators who have been delegating a minimum of 50 HP to indiaunited receive a vote from the community account. They were set as fanbase in Hive.vote. This will be removed and a manual curation will happen every day. The registered members of the community will still have a high chance to get most of the votes.

We already have a few curators in our server who will be doing the curation and in the coming weeks, we will also be adding additional curators if required based on how much stake we get on the community account.

Community Curation Trail

Curation trail is a voting trail offered by Hive.vote. We have an active curation trail for the Indiaunited community. Many members of the community have already joined the curation trail. It is not a mandatory thing to join the curation trail but if you would like to just follow the pattern of the community vote and not worry about voting individually, you can be a part of the curation trail. Please make sure you scale the votes based on the community's voting weight. If you leave it fixed, there is a high possibility that you can end up draining your voting mana.

That's it for now. There will be regular updates going forward from the community. United we stand. Let's all unite together to build the community together.


We value your contributions, feedback, and comments. If you think you can add any value to this community by any means, please contact us in discord server.

Yay, to India United! And namaste!

I was wondering what was with the Hive that was coming in every evening. Now I know! 😊 😊

Yes please increase your delegation to increase your daily curation reward. 😊 By the way, it will be great to see you active again on our discord server. 😊

There you go @indiaunited. Increased my delegation and I will keep increasing periodically. :)

I hope we also get to see an India coin or sth like that too and a few exchanges so that more people are attracted to joining Hive because of the smooth txns between fiat and crypto

Yes, that's right. We need some good exchanges that will let us exchange between fiat and crypto.

Indian coin, I don't know, that would be too much....government will be after people who created it....

Wow.. It's really a great news. I will delegate. Please make sure to add this and future posts to indiaunited's blog. People are not able to see since it is under 'all posts' part. Blog is the first part an outsider see when he/she visits the profile.

Yes, that's right. It is a sad thing about the user interface. Yes, next time onwards let's see what we can do.

Will Join @indiaunited on discord.

Great welcome. :)

Namate Love to be the part of the iniaunited.
The above payout are daily payouts?

Namasthe @guurry123. Yes, those are daily payouts.

Ok
Is the trail is still active?
If yest then what will be the requirement to get added into trail?

I am with indiaunited since 2018. I always wished that the community may grow like other communities but, unfortunately it was not possible. It is good to know that this initiative will help the growth of this community. I already had delegated 100HP. I want to delegate 200HP total. Please provide a link.

Yes, this time we will try to be a lot better and be active once again. Thanks for the delegation. Cheers!

Hey.. this is such an amazing new. Welcome back!! Such positive vibes :)

I have just contributed 100 HP Delegation and will surely contribute more in time to come. wish you guys luck.

Let's join hands together to make this a great community again. United we stand. :)

Always ready...we have to make it one...👍

Yes, let's do it together.

It's good to see the Indian community reviving back, and I am hopeful that we will keep the gear on with more and more fellow indians actively participating. I am not much on Discord but I will try to keep up with the updates.
I already have some delegation and I will increase my share, at the same time I will now remove the delegation from Steem, hope that would work.
Thank you once again for making this happen

Yes that will be great. We are no longer on steem and things are getting difficult on Steem. We are fully into hive now. Thanks for the delegation and ya now you get 80% share of the curation rewards as well. So, delegation can also be a good passive income opportunity. :)

Thank you so much for your long term support.

I have done the delegation.

Thank you so much :)

Awesome 👌 we already getting NRI investors here 😉....hahaha

Jokes apart, it's good to build on what we have started. Great to see people are enthusiast about it.

Hahaha.....very funny 😜
Yes, it would be nice to see more involvement from people in India and then soon we can have India Hive Fest 😀

With NRI investment.🤪...we can have a grand hive fiesta....and I belive if we can make it big will be the first one to do so....actually it's a nice idea...to make Indiaunited very popular..but maintaing a social distancing...😄

Awesome, let's start it again and make it more energetic than ever before.

Yes, let's do it. It will be great if you can curate some of the posts shared in the #post-promotion channel.

This is lovely news! Thank you for reviving this. Will be delegating asap.
More power to the Indian community 🌟

Thank you so much. It will be great to see you around the discord. 😊 Thanks for the delegation by the way.

Dear @indiaunited

Your publication has been recommended by @bala41288. Surely it's one of those posts, which surely are worth checking out and reading through.

Thank you @crypto.piotr.
Really appreciate the word of encouragement.
IndiaUnited is and has always been aiming for the community building but for the reasons mentioned in the post were struggling. But we are starting again. And this time with more enthusiasm.

Stay tuned for more updates from IndiaUnited.

Thank you so much for your nice words and support. :)

I just delegated 1500 HP. I'm interested to see how the reward share paid out compares to others I delegate to. Namaste

Thanks for the delegation @atma.love. You will start getting payouts in 7 days from now. I hope you have a good experience here. Namasthe. :) You can also join us in our discord server.
