This realisation hit me. Currently, you can do 40 full-strength upvotes before they go down in power and value. After the upcoming hardfork, that has been reduced to 10 votes starting at 100%, or 20 votes at 50%, 40 votes at 25%, and so on.
The crux, however: the amount of Steem that is created per day doesn't change, so the distribution value doesn't change either. Seeing as the amount of possible upvotes at full-strength is reduced by factor 4, does that mean our upvotes will get approximately 4 times the value they are now?
