Tough cookie to swallow. Got me some milk ready not to give away all my sbd.

Just the same as throwing your money in the garbage!

·

Thank you @stokjockey, trying to keep up here :)

With SBD still high its better to power up and not waste money on bot votes... minnows don't have enough money to make a difference and after SBD payout is cut in half with only the addition of a small amount of Steem... its usually a loss. I've run the numbers and as long as SBD is being paid out so high its silly to give more than half of that SBD away every time you recycle with a paid vote.

·

its usually a loss

True

·

But... when i pay 0.5 SBD i get upvoted for like 0.56 SBD + 0.17 SP. How is that a waste?!

·
·

and what about 25%*0.56 SBD for curators ?

·
·
·

Don't curators get 25% if they upvote in the first 30 minutes or am i mistaken? I rarely get curation rewards and they are like 0.0001 SP

·

The bots get bigger curation rewards because its proportional to the vote value. I assume you have low voting power... your curation award is based on the vote value you give with your upvote which is probably only $0.01. The Steem reward system doesn't pay at 0.0001 SP the minimum payout is .001 SP which is more than 25% of $0.01. The bots are collecting curation rewards on every upvote regardless of timing however the payout percentages are adjusted depending on timing between 15-25%.

Thank you for explaining it to me. Time to power up i guess! :)

·

Actually the curation reward system is quite complex. Early voters get a higher % of the reward, but if the upvote is done just after post is published, most of the reward for that vote would actually go to the post author. Technically the best moment to vote is when the post is at least 30 minutes old and you are among the first voters. This is likely never going to be the case for a low value post at payout though...

·
·

·
·

So if i see one of the big people i follow posting like 2-3 mins ago and i upvote it i might get better post rewards? :)

·
·
·

Sadly not, the curation rewards ramps up during the first 30 minutes after the post is published. Voting just after the post is up will get you close to no reward. This is done to avoid bots from immediately voting everything just to get the max reward possible. My advise is.... upvote post when you really like them, when you see them.

Until you get more SP in your account you will not receive any significant curation awards. It doesn't matter how big the person you are voting on is because its your voting power that determines your curation award. This is also why whales take large curation awards from all their bid-bot votes.

When I was a minnow I felt pretty good buying votes because they seemed to pay a lot better.

·

That’s true, so much demand for upvotes these days 😂

And they are not profitable anymore also ahha

·

It get that little boost though 😀

Is it profitable buying big votes? I've never tried before but I see people earning a lot just from small investments into some bots. I remember many LQ people using bots before and now they are way bigger than me as they shitpost lol.

Well it was great to check up on your posts again @stackin

·

They are not but useful at times when you want to hit the “Hot Page” 😀

·

Some bots are profitable, but the post boost to get visibility is what's really interesting.

·
·

Yeah. I don’t see why people are such haters. If you do it right, it’s pretty useful.

They are pillaging our money. But I like to bid for them😂😂

At that point, they just want to punch the whale and pull out his teeth.

·

Na, I want to pull more money out haha

Hahaha, oh my, this got me laughing to tears 😂😂😂

·

The look on the minnows faces 😂

hahahah epic lol and whales be like after that
giphy (1).gif

All bot RIO( -)

·

Use it to boost your posts 😬

Lmao it is definitely close to that honestly.

minnow got no chill too spending like crazy

·

Tons of SBD flowing lol

I have done this calculation before, there is actually not much benefit in the bot votes. I started doing it after reaching a certain level and now I see a little conversion of that, but yes in the initial days it was a waste

·

It helps get you on the hot feed somewhat 😀

voting bots be like waiting line is too big do fast

So wait I shouldn't use the bot votes lol, you could of told me this two hours ago :( thanks for the information

👍👍👍👍

the Richie rich show hahahah

hahaha......very funny.........osthir......

Sometimes, I even feel worse.

@stackin Do you think purchasing BOT Votes is really good? I don't think so. A week ago I used a bot. I purchase vote with 3SBD. After 7 days I got only 2 SBD. Which means I lost 1 SBD. Then how can BOT Votss are profitable? :( Feeling SAD
