Promote Steem Posts and Fund Budget Proposals with Our Voting Bot!

in #budget6 years ago

Transferring 0.1+ SBD to @jerrybanfield with the link to a post on now results in an automatic upvote based on the existing bids with half of the amount sent going to fund budget proposals to grow Steem from while the other half is returned to investors delegating Steem power to @jerrybanfield!

To track bids on the @jerrybanfield voting bot, visit by @yabapmatt. The bot votes 10 times a day at the same times every day.

Steem Post Promotion Tutorial!

To make a bid on the bot for promoting a post, visit while replacing jerrybanfield with our username. Next, go to SBD and select "transfer"

Then, enter in jerrybanfield into the account name, choose the amount of SBD to send with a minimum of 0.1 SBD, and place only the post URL from in the memo field.

Finally, hit send to complete the transfer using the active key to sign in! The vote will then automatically be placed within 3 hours at the most along with a comment thanking you for promoting the post! Invalid bids will automatically be returned.

Currently we are only accepting SBD but soon Steem will be an option too! When the bot starts voting, it takes 20 seconds to process each vote because of the comments meaning it may take 20 or more minutes during large rounds of votes to make every single vote.

Ideal Bidding Strategy

The simple strategy is to send the same bid on every new post after making it because this gives every post a consistent boost which helps maximize potential for more upvotes. For maximum profitability, learn what times the bot votes at and check the bot 10 to 30 minutes before it votes to see if a vote is profitable. Alternatively, sending a vote at the beginning of a round helps others decide whether to bid and often will ensure a vote that at least breaks even.

For most of us, what we are short on is time and attention. Checking every bot for the most profitable upvote takes some of our very valuable and limited time. This time could also be spent writing a post, reading other posts, enjoying life with family, earning money another way, etc. In everything I do I try to maintain awareness for what is my time worth. Spending 30 minutes to find the most profitable voting bot and then spending another 30 minutes obsessing over how much the vote was worth and what the return is may help a few of us earn an extra few dollars while often leading to about the same result we would have gotten using another bot. When our efforts to profit fail and we end up losing money in the transaction, we feel bad not because of the money but because we know we could have spent that hour in a better way.

When we make simple systems and use those systems every day, our lives are often much happier even if we end up with a few less dollars in our pockets. Our hope for this voting bot is that it works to promote posts consistently AND we feel good using it because we know that half the funds are being use to fund growth projects for Steem while the other are helping investors stay motivated to hold Steem power.

Investors, Delegations, and Funding!

Our voting bot is funded to begin with my approximately 100,000 Steem power plus the delegations of investors supporting our projects and earning a 50% return. To see how to delegate and earn a 50% return on the entire voting power delegated plus a bonus for my voting power, will we please follow the instructions in the last post at because inside are screenshots showing two ways to delegate Steem power?

To summarize, delegating Steem power to @jerrybanfield now essentially converts our voting power into 50% payments for Steem budget proposals and 50% in returns paid in whatever the bot receives which is currently SBD. Soon Steem will be accepted also! Investor reports each week will show the exact numbers based on each delegation. Those of us delegating early get a huge bonus because I am putting all of my Steem power in without getting any return meaning those delegating get returns on my Steem power also.

Our hope is that providing this simple option to delegate to jerrybanfield in exchange for both funding Steem budget proposals and providing a 50% return on the bot's earnings will motivate investors to hold onto Steem power through providing a consistent and transparent return which adjusts immediately with the Steem and SBD prices.

Thank You For Joining Us!

We are excited to begin this journey together in collaborating to fund projects on Steem! Will you please join over 2,500 of us in voting for jerrybanfield as a witness at because 100% of the witness earnings are helping increase the voting power of the bot which makes for more profitable upvotes and higher returns for both budget proposals and investors delegating Steem power?

Jerry Banfield


So your account will now only be used for bid-bot voting? You're not doing any manual or automated voting other than with the bid-bot?


...delegations of investors supporting our projects and earning a 50% return.

This isn't a good deal for delegators. They can get much higher returns by voting manually or through any number of automated services.

Our hope is that providing this simple option to delegate to jerrybanfield in exchange for both funding Steem budget proposals...

To me, it seems that this is really the main reason for your new bot: to attempt to do with this what you have continued to try to do when you were with DASH and now here with Steem/Steemit, which is to fund your own "marketing" campaigns where you give Facebook a bunch of money to "promote" Steem/Steemit to your fake followers.

And since your previous attempts at receiving these "budgets" have pretty much failed, you figured you'd just create a bid-bot and disguise it as a "community benefit" once again. This time, however, you know that all of the poor helpless minnows that "just can't get ahead" will be more than willing to send you money because they think that there's no possible way to earn money or get noticed without the bid-bots...because people like you and others keep filling their heads with this nonsense.

Anyway - that's just my opinion. Have a great day!

Oh, I just read Jerry's other post where he introduced the bid-bot the first time. Looks like I was right...

Design a project intended to add value to the Steem blockchain such as hosting a meetup, building an app, advertising Steem online, scheduling a meeting to pitch Smart Media Tokens, marketing Steem to an existing audience, etc. For example, I will be submitting proposals for ads for Steem on Google and Facebook...

So,'re going to be submitting your own proposals for your own budget review from the money earned from your own bid-bot. But you'll at least be returning half of half of the payments from your bid-bot to its delegators.

Seems legit.

Yes naturally this is designed to fund all of our project ideas including those we have worked together on for months with the ads and the exchange!

The flaws with your ideas have already been pointed out by many people. I expected nothing other than you continuing down the same path of failure. It's your MO.

Good luck with that.

Should i agree with you?

Yes I will not vote anymore on Steem because the bot will do all of it! We are having a great day here and appreciate you thinking of us!

least now i know why he ignored me when i suggested bots will kill steemit. lol. think it is time to unfollow someone...

and follow @ats-david . nice to meet you, appreciate your words, thanks for this comment.

You haven't already done this?

Thanks! You can also approve my witness, if you like it!

Top comment and earning $17 atm because the real steemit knows.

@tpot demolishes him by far

Try to look at it with a different perspective. If you view Uber as an investment, it's economic suicide. But Uber has made the world a better place. @jerrybanfield isn't using the rewards for his personal use. He's trying to spread awareness about steemit and other proposals that try to bring value to steemit. Even many people in the crypto-sphere are unaware of steemit. So I think what Jerry is doing is a great thing.

It's simply not the best way for you to make money. If you think of the whole project as a low-profit charity instead of investment, things would actually look pretty nice.

Existence of bid-bots is a completely different topic and there are many bots on steemit already. All I'm saying is to look at what @jerrybanfield is doing from a different perspective. He's not actively trying to do anything malicious or forcing anybody to do anything. So let it run.

Bunch ofads on internet with low ROI is still better than having nothing at all woth zero ROI as long as funds are acquired without violating the NAP.

Happy steeming!

Bernie gave the perfect name to jerry. Veryscamfield.

Really, it does match him very well.

This is an interesting post for two reasons.
.Easy to read.
. This is a good way to help steemians.
Keep on steemit.

This is an interesting comment to read for two reasons.

  • Noobies know nothing about competitor bid bots
  • Noobies don't know how to markdown.

And you're level 59?

I'm just givin you a hard time mane, you should def check out the competition though. Jerry is garbo and he entered garbo^3

So finally you are into bot business sir @jerrybanfiled

I will try your bot definitely, just saw you bot in last voting cycle u received around 7 sbd that s a great start..

Thank you.

Hi ,
Thanks for the great content

@jerrybanfield I just used it, and will get your first bot upvote of all times soon. A new thing for the history of the platform.

This is a great time to get SBD liquid assets now, and the voting bot will help you achieve this and get more funds for all the contributions and promotion you are doing for all the steemit community and platform.

Thanks for all your efforts.

Regards, @gold84

FYI: I sent 1 sbd and just received a 2.48 SBD Upvote from @jerrybanfield first time voting bot round! Thanks Jerry for adding this service for a good cause of the steemit community!

@gold84 thank you for continuing to promote posts with the bot!

@jerrybanfield thanks to you for creating the bot, and use it to the benefit of the steemit community. I think your ideas, will finally get the right path, sooner or later.

I have been posting a series of 20 ideas in order to improve the steemit front-end interface. The main idea behind this is to make it easier for new visitors and new members to learn important things from the platform, that will definitely increase the capture, and retain of many members, and I believe many inactive members will be active if this things were available.

Not everyone is like you and me searching for everything if we don't find it. Some people don't like to search that much or do not have the time to do so. So, if we make some features easier to undertstand and learn, I am convinced we can get a faster growth on steemit.

It will be perfect, when you get a chance to check some of this posts/ideas and give comments on how to develop them, or make them better.

Regards, @gold84

@tpot gives better returns.

Did you do the math right?

Hey sir your efforts to make Steemit Community great again are appreciable and I personally wish you all the best for every movement you run for the betterment of Steemit and I am big fan of your Innovative ideas and your every new idea is far ahead from last one so I wish you my gratitude and saying all the best.
Thanks for making Steemit Community great again.


You have your own bot named after you?!? Now I'm waiting for the Papa Pepper bot! 😀

Yes we are running a bot on this account now for voting!

@Papa-Pepper does manual curation.

I will definitely use this feature.
