in crowdfundedwhale •  3 years ago 


A quick status update after 30 days since the initial announcement of the Crowdfunded Whale Bot Project on Steemit. Things are continuing to build up step by step with more users joining and the voting power continuing to grow. Make sure that you read on the whole post as there are some changes and minimums introduced in how new users are accepted! There were already 113 people that support the project for the moment with 5 new joining in the last day, the full list can be found below:

The Steem Power of the @crowdfundedwhale is currently at over 2559 SP, so it is already at a pretty good level, but far from the goal of the project. Hopefully it will continue to grow steadily over time and now it is the perfect time to join and support the project with the low price of Steem. There are already some people that have donated more than once to the project and this is also helping a lot. Remember that you are the ones powering up the @crowdfundedwhale and the more power it has, the more it will give back to you as votes for your posts. The speed of growth after the initial good start has slowed down a bit, but things are still moving, even if it is a bit slow... it will take some time and effort, but we are going to get there eventually.

Delayed voting has been implemented to the bot code, so @crowdfundedwhale will now vote after about 30 minutes since the post has been published instead of about a minute delay like it was initially. This change has been made in order for the bot to be able to also get some curation rewards from the posts it votes on and use them in order to further grow its voting power. The recent change to use 70% for votes in order to counter the drop of voting power on a daily basis has made some effect in terms of stopping the further drop. Ideally the increase of total Steem Power should be able to compensate for any reduction on voting power of each votes being cast, though that is not the case yet as the bot still needs to grow its available SP.

How to Participate in the Project

You can get included in the list of authors the bot votes on if you:

Transfer the minimum amount of STEEM, Steem Power or Steem Dollars to crowdfundedwhale

Send an amount of Bitcoin (BTC) that meets the minimums to the address: 1LCFwZTpTzHNfHSdsSfjptHUNee2JBFLcy

The BTC address above is from Blocktrades and will automatically convert anything received to it into Steem Power to the @crowdfundedwhale account, if you do sent Bitcoins this way make sure you drop a comment with the transaction ID, so that it is known who you are and you can be added in the list of authors.

The project is now almost a month old and with over 100 users, up until today there were no minimums defined to join in the @crowdfundedwhale initiative, however as warned in the last few days it is now time to add some in order for the continue growing and function as intended. Below you can see the new minimum amounts of STEEM and Steem Dollars required from new users to join, you are still welcome to send less than the minimum, but then it will just be considered a donation and it will not get you included in the list of users the bot votes back for!

Minimum STEEM to send to join @crowdfundedwhale: 10

Minimum Steem Dollars to send to join @crowdfundedwhale: 1

The future growth and development of the project also requires some additional rules to be set, some of these will happen along the way as a part of the project evolving and adjusting to the situation. The first such rule to be set is regarding the number of posts user makes, users that post more than 4 Blog posts per day may not be accepted in the project and some that are already included may also get excluded. Since the voting bot has limited voting power available and it needs to be distributed among many users already, voting for more than 4 Blog posts per day is not something that will be encouraged on Steemit by this project in favor of the fairness of voting power distribution.

HI , I´ve done 11 steem donation as you can see in my wallet, but I think the bot is not working whit my account @seisges. I mean when I do a coment, not yesterday and not today posting, I refer only in coments.


The bot votes only for Blog Posts, not for comments...

Ahhh...Thanks for the explanation and sorry for my ignorance.

Best regards!!!!

Hi there, Just donated as per your request, I am just a small account so it kinda hurts LOL, but I am in -- TY very much for the add to this project, Barry

Nice! I wonder why I did not read anything about it before.

It is a month old project already.

Yes, I see. Maybe I should visit more different tags/topics.

LOL - doing that is helpful. I tend to scroll through the NEW tab at least twice a day to find new-to-me people and content.

I do that every day 2-3x myself so I can find new people and content, share and vote for their work.

Well, I am here for photography mainly. And I am not constantly checking for new stuff, don't have the time. Even my feed is loaded with hundreds of posts after a day or two. Too much for me. But a bit more diversity is probably good. Anyway, I have withdrawn some of my steem, and when they're available I'm going to participate.

Also UV and RS this post for you to spread awareness.

Can you make it automatic to vote only two posts per person per day?
I'd think this would be the way to go.

Great job. I think you'll be seeing more support now :)

this post is now at $3.49, definitely starting to fire up!!..thanks for being part of it!!

This post has been ranked within the top 25 most undervalued posts in the first half of Nov 23. We estimate that this post is undervalued by $9.68 as compared to a scenario in which every voter had an equal say.

Hi again.

I checked this thread and the replies, seeing you seem to get back to people pretty quickly. I transferred the funds to you, as you will see here or in your wallet but have not heard from you or seen that I am added.

Just wondering what's going on, figured I would be added when the transfer went thru within a few hours, don't want to miss out on a whole day or more of rewards, TY very much. // BD

You have been added, but you have not posted since then, so the bot hasn't voted for your posts yet.

Thanks for replying. I posted an hour ago. I had just not seen a reply to me, like I said, when I noticed your replies to others on everything answering questions or acknowledging them once they had stated they had donated.
