It seems that bots & self voting are gone in EOS

in #eos4 years ago

When I understand it right there are disincentives in EOS to reduce the harming influence of bots and self voting which the people here at steemit have to experience unfortunately.

The following paragraphs say this in my view:

"It is critical to have a minimum per-day payment so that wealthy individuals who have no intention of producing blocks don’t attempt to earn interest on their producer candidate by voting on themselves."

"We recommend that the constitution contain language forbidding the use of automated voting bots as the purpose of vote-decay was to ensure that voters re-evaluate their decisions rather than “set-it and forget it”. While it is not possible to prove the use of bots, it will be possible to prove that people do not use smart contracts to auto-vote."

What are your thoughts ?


I guess I will stay with steemit. lol

Hey Msio,
Thanks for your comment.
What do you think about this self voting and bot issue ?
My post was not against Steemit, I only observed the evolution in @dan´s new venture.

I think it is overrated and more people should use the bots. I don't see a problem with self voting as long as you vote for others. I think more people should self upvote especially if it is to save a vote. Like if I upvote your comment it doesn't count because of the .02 earnings threshold.

what is the .02 earnings threshold ?
I never heard of it ..

If your post gets .01 you don't get paid.

ah, ok thanks.
