Time do fly really fast as it felt like it was just yesterday when I decided to avail of Blocktrades' delegation service and got myself some 590 SP delegation from their account.
And 7 hours ago, I got this encrypted memo informing me that the delegation will expire in 48 hours. T_T
In order to read encrypted memos like that, you need to log.in with your 'master key' or if you have steemplus extension installed (or other third party extension/services), use your private memo key.
There was actually a time where a 500 SP+ delegation made a noticeable impact in post payouts from curating or upvoting other people's content but sad to say with Steem still below $0.5 USD, this kind of things are often taken for granted. XD
Case in point: at the moment I have 1967 effective Steem Power and my full upvote gives only around $0.05.
Excluding the delegation, my full upvote would then become around $0.03. A difference of only $0.02! XD
If someone were to ask me now if availing the delegation was worth it, well I'm not really sure on how to answer that. XD
But if you want some numbers, I did spend around 34 liquid Steem months ago for 592 SP.
According to Accusta, a site that also tracks curation reward stats in a monthly basis for one's Steem Account, it seems just through curation rewards I got 31.63 SP, which I really think is not at all bad considering I am no longer sniping curation rewards and is just upvoting posts/comments I like.
