RE: Has your usage of voting bots been changed after HF21?

  • No - Didn't use them before. Don't use them now

I'm not that keen on bidbots, but now that the convergent linear curve is in place, it makes it more difficult to get to the coveted 20 STEEM mark without bidbots, unless you already have a pretty significant network of folks that you may or may not be participating in a circle vote with. Or, have a pretty high self-upvote, which according to my calculations, would start about 175,000 SP. So, I find it interesting that the little news about bidbots at this point I've read has to do with them going under. I can't believe that's true, but I guess we'll see as time continues to tick by and people decide and implement their behavioral changes, if any, going forward.

All they have to do is make some adjustments to the algorithms. At most the bidbots will be less profitable for users and owners. That's all I could see happening.

Since I made that comment, I've ran across a post and comment or two that basically has at least one bidbot owner, if not more, coming to chat with some community members about how things should look going forward. If chat is the proper term. I'm getting concerned that this new community led STEEM has it's downsides, too—some ultimatums going around that makes it sound like the same thing we've been working to get free of here. :)
