Delegation to @steem-ua

Thanks to a post of @tarazkp I discovered @steem-ua. It was not the first time that I did hear about it, that honor is for @abh12345 who wrote about it more than a month ago.

User Authority is trying to replace the current reputation system on the Steem Blockchain. The idea behind it is that the upvotes doesn't matter but the User Authority score the upvotes has. This would eliminate the case, where you do buy upvotes from higher ranked (in rep) Steemians and increase your reputation.

My UA score

At the moment my UA score is 3.207 and this does place me on position 8229 in UA ranking.
While this seems low, this actually more or less reflects my reputation ranking according to mysteemitfriends.

Because 95% of my rep is grown the organic way, it does show that the algorithm behind it is working. Of course, I always what to get higher up, but it is what it is!

The current reputation score has some flaws. Suppose that you really earned you rep by posting great quality content and start posting picture of grass once a day. Nobody will probably flag this post and your reputation still will be the same.
If I did understand it correctly the UA is vivid, so it can increase but also decrease!

I will add the UA ranking and figures to my Steem tracking sheet, this way I can find out if it can decrease of if my UA is getting to the moon!

Why did I delegate

Well there are 2 reasons for this! 1 is to support the project and algorithm and see if it works!
The second reason is that based on your UA score and the amount you have delegated to them, you will get some free upvotes.
Depending on the amount you have delegated to them, the frequency of the upvotes changes. For a delegation of 25SP, you will get one upvote per week, this increases to two per week when you have delegated 50SP. For 100 SP this increase to 4 and the max is 7 upvotes per week for a delegation of 250SP.
The value of the upvote depends on the UA score. How higher this score is, the higher the upvote value will be!
To try it out, I decided to delegate 50SP to @steem-ua.
Not only will I get some free upvotes (twice per week), I will also support quality content and good authors on the Steem Blockchain!

You can find more information about the Steem User Authority on the @steem-ua blog.
The idea behind it is from @scipio who introduced it in this post: https://steemit.com/utopian-io/@scipio/how-to-solve-spam-on-steem-introducing-userauthority

Nice to see you also support the project. I delegated 25 SP to find out how the service is working.
My UA is now at 1.155, which places me at rank 45,000 something. Would be interesting to see the differences in upvote values between the two of us.

Did you already got an upvote from them? I will let you know if I got the first one!
Cheers,
Peter

No, not yet. I'll also let you know when I got one.
Cheers!

Got one now. It is worth $0.23, so not bad at all!

·
·
·

Got the same :)
It is indeed good enough to cover the costs of the delegation!
If it really is twice per week, the it would in total be around $0.46 per week. That wouldn't be possible with own upvotes of 50 SP. So worth the investment.

Clearly worth the investment indeed!
Somehow I expected you to get a higher upvote than me since your UA-score is higher. It might also be that they change it later and now give everybody the same (relative to their delegation).

Your posts are good You write well I pray You can succeed in the coming life I'd love to meet you I will be with each of your posts That you will be a successful person one day You should work harder Thank you very much You can become a successful man God always keeps your family happy Always be happy

I will be with each of your posts @fullcoverbetting hahahahaha... sorry that was too good to resist lol. :D Sounds like it was a very positively directed delegation! ;)

·
·
·

Just look at her profile and the account does place the same comment on all the posts! Hence the reputation!

Will see how the degation works. It is my first delegation on Steem 🤓

yeah I didn't even waste the time that it would have taken to do that LOL! ;) And yeah I hope it proves beneficial :)

Are you in, miss postalot? :P

So much PRESSURE!!!!! hahaha ;) Sounds good - I have only read about it here so will check it out direct and then make a call.

Oh... I saw your steemfest entry earlier when checking out all the entrants... why so shy on camera? :P haha

·

I don't see you on camera much? :P

I'm not normally that shy, it's just that the ticket is worth 400 STEEM so i think that was making me nervous. I'm a shy guy though!

And @steem-ua, get your act together yo!

I think it's well worth the investment!

·

Hope it is, and if not that at least I have used my SP in a good way!

Ik ga me er ook maar eens in verdiepen maar er is zo veel 😬😬😩

·

Inderdaad. Keuzes moeten gemaakt worden. Maar als ik zie dat Asher en Tarazkp dit ook een goed project vinden, dan is het al wat makkelijk om te steunen!

·

Dat was ook mijn idee. Maar zonder gekheid ik ben zo groen in vergelijking met veel anderen including you ik zie jullie blog en lees ze echt ook goed door , maar heel veel dingen snap ik NOG niet 😬 ik heb er even meer tijd voor nodig.
But Getting There 😉
