It's been over a month since we started our beta, and we have some quite impressive stats to present!

Payouts to delegators keep exceeding expectations, with an apr of 8.4% (sample size last 7 days) they are higher than what most bid bots are able to offer these days, in some cases very significantly.
We implemented a throttling system similar to steem mana for our curators which is intended to make them focus on the best quality posts and by popular request are working on our own trail, so this may even go further up in the future. Anyone still delegating to bots should seriously question their motives now!
The distributed downvote system is doing a great job in taking rewards off bot abusers and circle jerks, in some cases we proud ourselves in having contributed to stopping them. Others are more resilient, and as you may have noticed we are on the retaliation list of one of the past big offenders, but that had to be expected and doesn't have the slightest influence on our efforts.
All in all it's been a very successful month, and we're looking forward to helping with bringing #newsteem forward! See you soon!
