Upvoteshares | Numbers & Calculations Explained
The Steem algorithm works in a way where 10 full upvotes get recharged every single day. This means that making a full upvote every 2.4 hours is the most optimal way to use your Steem Power since you will always upvote when your voting power reaches 100% and you will never run out of it (This is exactly what bid bots do). Calculating how much 1 STEEM is currently worth in daily upvotes can be done with the Steemit Upvote Calculator
(The numbers change based on current Steem Price)
1 Steem Power = 101.28 / 1000000 = 0.00010128$ Upvote Worth
10 x 0.00010128$ = ~0.001$ Daily Upvote Worth
1 STEEM = ~0.001$ Daily Upvote Worth
Support Groups are great for people on Steemit that want to make a bit of extra income from blogging about the subjects they are passionate about. After all, Steemit is mainly a blogging platform. This can be quite the challenge especially if you want to have a real blog here writing about a rather niche topic that is not centered around Steemit or Crypto which most people are interested in here. Groups basically allow Steemians to get some basic daily income on their posts without having to hope for the rare dolphin or whale upvote to get some post earnings.
The main idea is to have a central account that upvotes the people that have shares in the Steem Power of that account. The total Steem Power of the account will at any given time be at least worth 10% more compared to the individual shares combined. Every time the account has grown to a specific point, new shares become available at an increased price which offers similar entry value because the account got bigger. This way, the minimum return existing members get from their shares increases each new level. There will be many mechanics in place to grow the account and give extra value to shareholders.

Row Explained for Level 2
Once the owned SP in the @upvoteshares account reaches 549SP, 50 Level 2 shares become available for 3.33 STEEM each and there will be 150 shares in circulation in total. Those 50 Level 2 shares bring in ~167 STEEM that will get powered up after which there will be 716SP in the account. 10% extra gets added by me (16.7SP) which makes the account needing to grow 17.3SP in order to reach the next level. This cycle repeats over and over again each time getting a bit more difficult because all previous levels need to increase to the value of the new level.
All The Columns and Numbers Explained...
LevelThese are the different levels. Every time the account reaches a predetermined amount of SP, the next level will unlock and more shares will become available to acquire.
OpenThis is the SP that the @upvoteshares account needs to have powered up in order for a new level to open. There will always be at least 10% extra SP in the account compared to the latests share price. The calculation for this number (Total Shares x Share Price)*1.1
Shares | TotalThere will be 50 shares available each level, the reason for this is to limit the supply so they can mainly ge granted to accounts that behave properly on Steemit while keeping it all managable. The Total Shares number increases by 50 each round. (In case the steem price would increase a lot, the shares can be split)
Share PriceThe absolute price of 1 share will always increase by 0.08 STEEM every new level, but the relative price will always be similar where the SP in the account devided by the total amount of shares is worth at least 10% more. By keeping the increase amount fixed it actually decreases a bit percentage wise each level.
Total |SPThe total price of all shares sold in each level. (50x Share Price) Once a new level opened and all shares are distributed, the collected STEEM will be used to Power Up. Each level is fully funded in advance which creates extra value to each shareholder and makes the account close to the number it needs to reach to unlock the next level.
Add | Need10% on top of the total Steem that comes in will always at least be added as my investment. This creates extra value and increases the progression rate. The Need column is the amount of Steem the account has to grow in order to reach the next level. This will mainly come from curation rewards, post earnings or an extra investment done by me.
This table shows the progression rate of how much your share is worth relative to the Steem Power in the account. No matter at what level someone steps in, there will always be at least 10% extra SP in the account you get upvotes from. The share of someone who stepped in at level 2 will have increased to a point where it is at least worth +25.9% in the upvote they get returned and this will continue to grow as long as this project runs. The price of steem going up or down has no influence on any of these numbers.
Entry Cost 0.300 STEEM / ShareMost upvote groups heavily rely on getting (monthly) funds or upvotes to buy delegation to make their upvotes worth something. While I am not the biggest fan of this, I would make each share come along with a one time entry cost of 0.300 STEEM that will be fully used to buy some 90 day delegation to increase the upvote worth and allow for a minnow sponsorship. At later stages, new members will get a bigger share of the upvotes that are not used to counter the entry cost until the next level is reached.
Exit Cost 0.200 STEEM / ShareShareholders will remain having promised ownership of their Steem that got Powered Up in the account. There will never be Power Downs until the project decides it's better to stop or is forced to stop somehow. (on which everyone can claim and get back their initial Steem investment obviously.). It is still possible to exit the group and get your Steem back by selling your Share to someone else (There will probably be auction posts on the @upvoteshares account in the future to do that). As a mechanic to prevent too many of these time consuming transactions and a way to create extra value for existing shareholders, 0.200 Steem worth will be burned from the shares that are sold. Since Buying from someone else instead of from the program does not require an entry cost they will be prioritised In the end it will be up to supply and demand.
- Someone Gets 1 Share at level 2 for which they paid 3.60 Steem (3.30+0.30)
- They want to sell their share at Level 8.
- The price of 1 share at level 8 = 3.78 Steem
- (3.30-0.200)/3.78 = 0.82 Shares at current price.
- 0.82 shares are worth 3.1 Steem and can be sold based on supply and demand.
This is basically a small cost for shareholders that give up on steemit at the benefit of existing shareholders since the amount of shares go down which increases the value of each share.
The idea of having +10% extra SP in the account and the numbers above are all the bare minimum and there will be quite some mechanics in place to create extra value for shareholders...
Core mechanic of rising share priceThis is constantly increases the value for existing shareholders as the value of the account increases. This will probably go slow but steady.
1100%+ DistributionNot every shareholder will end up making a daily post. When you skip a day, you know your vote will be redistributed to the other shareholders and the other way around. There will be minimum requirements in place when it comes down to quality and proper steemit behavior for shareholders so none will go to empty posts.
Pre-Funded LevelsEvery new level starts off close to the next level being reached since the first level got funded in advance and new steem that comes in directly Powered Up. In the early stages this makes a huge difference and provides a lot of extra value !
Minnowshares SponsorshipEvery Upvote Shares comes along with 1 Minnow Share. The @minnowshares account has 500SP in it and will give daily auto-upvotes to minnows that got sponsored until the point the next level is reached which brings a new cycle to this mechanic. Someone who collects 6 or 7 Minnow Shares will be able to trade them for a non transferrable Upvoteshare.
Inactive SharesTo provide for the upvoteshares that get claimed for minnowshares in the future, there will be many inactive shares. All shares of level 0 are reserved for this and will stay inactive for probably a really long time. These shares also paid the entry cost which was used for extra delegation to the account.
@minnowshares delegationThe minnowshares account will stay at 500SP and all earned curation rewards will be delegated or moved over to the @upvoteshares account to give it extra value.
Post EarningsI intend to make weekly update posts on the @upvoteshares account. Those post earnings will be used to grow the account faster or even lease some extra steem power to give extra value to the shareholders.
Destroyed SharesPeople who ends up giving up on Steemit and sells their shares provide value to existing shareholders since part of their share gets destroyed.
Extra Personal InvestmentThe number in the table of added Steem is the bare minimum of 10% on top of what comes in. In reality I will likely be tempted to put more on top of that to create a steady growth.
This initiative is an experiment as a way to create a program I would be happy to be part off and use myself along with a way to see if it is possible for a group support account to get worthy curation rewards on the made investment in a fair and transparent way. All upvotes will be done at the 24th minute which takes ~20% in curation rewards that will be used to grow the account. All the needed info to calculate the true return will be open and available at any given time.
I am aware of the major flaw in the entire system that there is a central failing point of the person who holds the private key since Steem needs to be send in order to take part in this project. Unfortunately there is no other way and my intention is to do this so everyone is satisfied and I have no intention whatsoever to scam anyone.
