If you haven't heard, Byteball is doing a massive airdrop to Steem users with 30-70+ reputation. Users are getting $10 - $160 worth of Byteball that can be held or sold immediately Bittrex.
If for whatever strange reason you haven't done it yet, you can download the wallet here. Hit me up on Discord or Steem.chat and I'll send you some bytes to get your account unlocked. You can read more in my original post.
Based on your rep, this is what you can expect to get in the airdrop, half now half in a smart contract a year from now.
- Steem reputation above (30): you get a $10 reward
- Steem reputation above (40): you get a $20 reward
- Steem reputation above (50): you get a $40 reward
- Steem reputation above (60): you get a $80 reward
- Steem reputation above (70): you get a $160 reward
Anyway, I'm not going to spend time pitching Byteball when someone else is going to steal the rewards while I spend time walking through people who to claim theirs.
I've been collecting a list of all the users who go around stealing referral rewards from other people's threads. They do this because the first person who sends the initial bytes gets the referral reward. So they go around and let people introduce others to ByteBall, walk them through getting setup, then take credit for it by stealing the referral credit.
One user comes up a lot, in fact quite a bit. The user is no real surprise, to be honest, but it is @resteem.bot. I sent him some flags to let him know I'm thinking of him. I'm sure he would love to hear back from everyone who has been wrong to let him know you are thinking about him as well.
While he doesn't always get the referral as other users are sometimes faster, he is doing it constantly attempting it and sometimes succeeding. Referrals for Byteball are quite large, giving losers a large incentive to sniper other users posts.
Steemit has a natural attraction to users who want to get free money for little to noeffort. The Byteball airdrop is a big example of that, much to their surprise though, they are not anonymous or hard to find.
I have flagged a few users who have been going around sniping Byteball referrals, and considering releasing the list I have built. Other who are doing it, you are no anonymous and likely will be flagged in the near future.
