It has been an exciting week with many great minnows posting on the #ecotrain tag to get a chance for an up-vote worth up to $4 USD! I've been busy every day this last week selecting the best posts that I can find with low rewards, and up-voting people who write great articles. I have spent almost 12 months on Steemit, and during those first few months I know first hand how deflating it can be to put so much effort into a post only to be completely ignored! Ouch! That's why I created the @ecotrain, and now the minnow support project!

This last week I have up-voted 28 minnows which I know from the comments has made many people very happy. It is a real joy to be able to give money away every day, and I have only been able to do this because of your up-votes and support. I would like to give a HUGE thank you to the supporters of this project, especially @canadian-coconut, @jerrybanfield, @kennyskitchen, @adamkokesh & @tribesteemup. They are what make this project possible, and it's Steem Ambassadors like them who add real value to Steemit and ensure it will have a healthy and long life!

This week the following Minnows have been supported! Congratulations to the following Steemians!

You have ALL been whitelisted to use the @ecotrain bot, now giving 11% ROI.

Please read this post if you need help on how to use the voting bots


I am proud to say that the @ecotrain bot is now dedicated to helping minnows! It is the first bot on to only allow approved / whitelised people to use it! Many thanks to @yabapmatt for making a lot of effort to get this working for me and iron out the bugs! Not only that but I have set the ROI to give 11% returns to all whitelisted users. This means that the @ecotrain bot only up-votes great posts, and will give minnows a great return on their bids. It doesn't get much better than that!

The @ecotrain is ALL about quality and engagement, and so this is a great change for everyone!

Im still.. Very slowly learning how @eco-train works!

Thanks @eco-alex. It's great to get this support. I'm loving being part of steem even though it's dishearting when there are so many bots up voting junk content. Thanks for supporting us minnows and working helping quality content rise up.
