Actifit Witness Status: Why voting for Actifit (& other dapps) is great for Steem
10 days ago, we officially launched our Actifit witness. This was a major move that we have been considering for quite a while.
Being a witness on the Steem blockchain is a big deal. Witnesses are individuals (and dapps) that you are choosing to be your representatives under Steem's DPOS (distributed Proof of Stake) system for block production. By voting for a witness, you are basically saying that this witness represents me, and I believe in their capability to do a great job to maintain the Steem blockchain and help it grow.
So why did we make this move?
We believe dapps of Steem will be the real backbone for future growth of the Steem BC as a whole.
While as a blogging platform, Steem has done well so far, yet with dapps and SMTs, we are opening up the platform for far more potential beyond simple blogging.
Large dapps such as Utopian, SteemHunt, SteemMonsters, Steempress, Actifit and others have the potential to reach thousands and millions of active users who are well established outside the Steem ecosystem, and are waiting to learn about us, and for the right doors to open up to onboard them.
So how does this relate to witness status?
Those dapps, whose most interest is the growth and success of the Steem blockchain, and who have the technical know-how and interest to properly manage witness servers (and full nodes), are essential to be part of the witnesses, and even top 20 witnesses. Having a voice to decide how Steem should move forward is of great importance, hence why witnesses and top witnesses need to be a combination of serious Steem visionaries, entrepreneurs, alongside Steem dapps.
We as Actifit are committed more than full-time (however humanly possible) to the Steem blockchain, and this is due to our belief that Steem is the perfect environment to have all those amazing dapps. We couldn't think of a better place for Actifit to grow.
Hence why we started our own witness, and as mentioned above when we have the financial capabilities we also plan on launching our own full node, which we believe is an even bigger contribution and commitment to the growth and success of the Steem BC.
In terms of our witness, we have climbed several positions in the last 10 days, reaching now position 134 (effective 118). We are running Steem version 0.20.6, and we haven't missed any block.
A big thank you for everyone voting for Actifit.

Top Daily Actifitters
Our latest voting round included 259 activity reports.
Below are the top 10 actifitters from this round. Well done guys !!
|Rank||Actifit Member||User Rank||Activity Count||AFITs Rewarded||@actifit Upvote||Post Link|
A kind reminder to all actifitters: some versions of esteem app still cause issues when used to edit your reports, via removing essential info Actifit uses to identify proper reports. This prevents related reports from receiving rewards.
Until this issue is officially fixed via the esteem team, we advise that you use other Steem interfaces for editing, including our own actifit.io, steemit, busy or others.
Under our new Actifit reward and rank system, the amount of delegated SP has a large influence over not only the daily/weekly delegation reward, but also on the amount of rewards the actifitter receives on daily reports, as it constitutes a key element in User Rank.
Which is why being an Actifit delegator now has more influence on your rewards, coupled with number of AFIT tokens and other factors highlighted before.
Add to that, and a key important item that will benefit Actifit by receiving more delegation, is the ability to claim and create more user accounts. At the moment, Actifit is claiming a max of around 7 account spots per day. Although this is a good start, yet the number is still small compared to the potential that Actifit has to bring in masses. Simply another reason to delegate to Actifit!
Actifit continues to receive amazing delegations and support by more members of our community.
Below is the recent list:
Accordingly, @actifit account is now at 164,467 SP
Thank you to all delegators for the wonderful support! To see the list of all our delegators, check out actifit.io/delegators
Delegators share a max cap of 100K AFIT tokens according to their delegation amount, and also earn a 5% beneficiary reward from actifit posts' beneficiary earnings.
Since many ask, here we describe again an easy way to calculate your AFIT tokens for a full day of delegations:
(Your Delegated SP) * 100,000 AFIT MAX / (Actifit Account Delegated SP - without account own SP and any delegators who opted out).
So for instance if you had delegated 100 SP, your daily earnings would be around:
100 * 100,000 / 162,000 = 61.34 AFITs
We are always appreciative of more delegations to be able to better award actifitters and support our project, so thank you for doing that !
When you are looking to increase your delegation, you need to use the new total amount as the delegation amount, and not only the increased amount. Otherwise only the new amount will be used, and the remaining amount will be undelegated.
To delegate, you can use any of the following links:
10SP, 20SP, 30SP, 50SP, 100SP, 250SP, 500SP, 1,000SP, 5,000SP, 10,000SP, 20,000SP, Custom Amount
Make sure you have at least 15 SP left on your account.
