Delegation Opportunities to Strengthen Blockchain Writing Community!

in delegation •  4 months ago

In partnership with @eturnerx, The Writers’ Block announces our first-ever delegation drive and supplemental fundraiser for Steemhouse Publishing!

TWB has enjoyed a nice boost in activity lately, a very warm reception at Steemfest, and encouraging early feedback on the first novel we’re preparing for launch. Ideas plus strategy are paying off. We think the time is right to shake things up a bit. So let’s try something new!

Delegating SP to TWB means that we can support our community of writers. We want the larger platform involved in nurturing the writing talent on Steem. Our delegation post is here. You can keep up with the progress of the delegation drive on SteemReports.

TWB’s headline project is to publish the first book through Steemhouse publishing. “High Kill” will bring additional visibility to TWB and Steem.

The next expense Steemhouse will incur are the bulk ISBN numbers from Bowker. The smallest package offered is ten numbers for a total cost of just under $300 USD. Our post asking for contributions is here.

Here’s how you can help with both:

For each 50 SP you delegate to TWB, @eturnerx will give 1 SBD towards the ISBN costs.
For each 10 SBD you contribute towards the ISBN costs, @eturnerx will give another 1 SBD.

Conditions:

  • Please comment below with “I delegated” or “I contributed” so we can find your contribution.
  • @eturnerx will contribute until the ISBN costs are met.

How you can delegate:


50SP, 100SP, 250SP, 500SP, 1,000SP, 5,000SP or 10,000SP

How you can contribute to the ISBN costs:

Send a transfer of SBD or STEEM to @thewritersblock with “ISBN” in the memo field.

Don’t forget to comment below if you delegate or contribute: (We might’ve seen @eturnerx dispatch 20 SBI in the direction of the comments as randomish spot prizes.)

To us, this sounds like a lot of fun! It’s a way to get the Steem community involved as well as meet our goals. We will also acknowledge you by Steem username in either the front or back matter of the novel as having contributed to its publication. There’s nothing like seeing your name in print! Especially for a good cause, so consider getting involved with this delegation and funding drive today! Drive ends upon payout of this post.

Spot prize of 5 SBI units for the first combo contribution. Thanks.

I will try to help, but with my little bit of STEEM Power I may have rob Peter to pay Paul!

Oops, I delegated 100 SP.

Hm... do you accept/count SBI shares as donations for the ISBN costs?

And shouldn't be there some limit about how long to delegate? Not just get the delegation, grab the SBD and ran out again.

·

SBI units? Yes! Fun fact: I removed SBI units from early post drafts to reduce confusion and put the focus on building delegated SP. But here it is:

For every 20 SBI units you give to @thewritersblock, I'll give the SBD equivalent of 1 STEEM towards the ISBN costs (strike price to be determined at the time I do the transfer).

I know 20 SBI units looks high, but SBI has a give-one-get-one model so @thewritersblock gets only half the benefit, and you get the other half. SBI is also pegged to Steem and so my matching offer is pegged to STEEM too.

Time requirements on delegating: I'm the one with the downside risk and I can't be bothered policing it. So, I didn't request time limits. I going to rely on community good will here.

Ha! You beat me to it. I was going to say much the same thing. :-)

·
·

And how long does this offer go? I was planning to do a big SBI thing on the 12.12.
A double double up (because of date), and no worry if you don't understand the meaning of this.

·
·
·

"Drive ends upon payout of this post." So about six days to go yet. :-)

·
·
·

This offer is open until the post closes. But, if you message me (DM on discord) then I'll make a similar offer if I still have SBD.
Double 12 is couples day in China and probably the biggest shopping day in the world? I'm curious if it has some other meaning. Mind you 12 is a number that appears in a lot of relations.

Oh, I didn't know that! But it hits the spot in a way :D

No, the intention was for AkibaSteem to get more SBI shares.
So I thought if someone sponsors one share to AkibaSteem I make one back and one more to AkibaSteem, so both the sponsor ends up with 2 shares for one and AkibaSteem gets two shares for one.
1:2 and 1:2 double double up ;)

I would have included this, but if the time runs out...

·

I'm still confused. But, sure, if you give SBI shares to @thewritersblock on or near the 12 Dec, then msg me and I'll make a similar offer to the above.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Okay, I will keep it in mind.

I only just caught this before payout, I just delegated 100 SP, a little something!

·

Many thanks! I'll be doing the donations when this post pays out.

Awesome idea. I love things that translate to real objects such as books

Thank you all for contributing. My sums tell me that there was 21 SBD for me to pay and I have sent this to @thewritersblock.
