Redfish Booster [steem-bounty: resteem this post to win the bounty]

in help •  8 months ago  (edited)

Hardfork 20 has introduced the very controversial resource credits system, making interactions with the chain significantly more expensive. While designed to combat spam and enable a fairer use policy for the resources that exist on the chain, it may discourage new users from joining the steem community and therefore poses a threat to the healthy growth of our userbase.

Currently the new user experience is really abysmal. I created a new test account and this is how it looks like:
Screenshot 2018-10-22 22.13.20.png
I can make slightly less than 2 posts a day, assuming I dont vote nor do any transfers. That is not enough. New users should be able to comment a lot and interact with other users. Two posts a day is not going to convince may people to stay. Its a social network that makes social interaction impossible.

But there is some good in HF20 and in fact it may allow us to build a better and more sustainable system. For steem to succeed I believe the following points to bee crucial.

  • discourage spam
  • discourage useless bots (let the bots pay by powering up)
  • welcome new users and give them the ability to interact and get an impression for free
  • make sure people producing great content can publish without barriers as they create a lot of value
  • give enough incentives to power up

Currently these goals are not met and because steem is a decentralised project it is really up to use to make this a reality. We do have to potential to help the redfish! By giving delegations to honest new accounts, we can at the same time prevent spam and still give new users the ability to interact with the steem community.
And while this sounds like a charity, it is really crucial for the continued success of steem and everyone who has a stake should be very much interested to make this vision a reality. User growth is one of the best ways to push the price of steem and help making this project a success.

The Redfish Booster: @curatorbot

To do my part in realising this vision I have created a bot that will give out delegations to redfish accounts. The conditions for support are:

  • less than 50 steem power. At that level it is possible to make about 30 posts a day and that should be enough to give a basic functionality.
  • only real human accounts
  • no spam, no plagiarism
    Other than that the bot gives out delegations to any account no matter the discussed topics, style of post or anything else. We do not select who deserves to be here, any human producing original content is welcome. Accounts will be supported with 50 sp for 90 days, after which they are hopefully able to survive on their own, or ready to invest a little money. The bot will verify most of the requirements automatically, before passing the final candidates on for manual verification.

Such a bot is not needed to support redfish. In fact I know several people that host their own contests to support new accounts and I value these initiatives very much. The advantage @curatorbot offers is taking care of the administration and providing one place where new people can start looking for support.

The bot will further comment on the new posts of new accounts letting them know how they can get support.

Supporting @curatorbot

In order to give out these delegations the bot needs to have enough steem. I will put some of my steem in the project, but any additional support is more than welcome. If you want to support this project, please either delegate to @curatorbot or directly send some steem.

As a thanks for the supporters @curatorbot will upvote at least one post of the delegators and donators per day, at roughly 500% of the given sp. The bot automatically saves up these upvotes and will vote more frequent if you have not posted in a while. No need to make exactly one post per day!
If you dont want to receive these upvotes and instead support redfish with 100% of your sp you can opt out of the upvotes by sending the memo limit:none to the bot.

In addition, please resteem this post to make sure as many potential delegators and redfish as possible will find it. I will set up a steem-bounty to reward everyone who resteems this post and makes a comment mentioning it.

For the Redfish

At the centre of this project are the redfish, people that are new to steem and still have a very small stake.

Getting supported is simple! Just send a transaction with the memo request to @curatorbot, or reply to this post with the words request. The bot will automatically check your account and within 24 hours you should get your delegation (given the bot has sufficient funds.).

Please resteem and/or donate/delegate to make this project a success!
Delegation links: 20SP; 50SP ; 100SP ; 200SP ; 500SP


The first delegation is out to @kipswolfe. We currently have more requests than we can fill so any delegation or donation to @curatorbot is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in particular to @sivehead and @simplymike for delegating to @curatorbot and making this project possible.

I love this project: resteemed with joy!

A huge hug from @amico!

Sent a delegation and resteemed.
I do not want to receive upvotes in exchange for my delegation. Do I just send you a transaction with the memo you mentioned?

This is an awesome initiative. I hope a lot of redfish can be given their rights back.

·

Thanks for the support!
I will disable upvotes for your account. If you at any time want to gain upvotes again simply send me the memo limit:1000

That is an excellent idea. I was looking how to delegate Steem Power to minnows by myself, but I will consider delegate SP to @curatorbot instead.

·

Hi @ropaga! I`m here to help :) If you want to delegate, please make a comment (for example replay to this one) like this:
I want to delegate X sp to @user
Where X is the amount of SP and @user is the steem user you want to delegate to. For example:
I want to delegate 100 sp to @frdem3dot0
@tipU will answer with a delegation link. Hope this helps!:)

Ok, I can't afford much being quite new myself but I'll delegate 20sp, and of course give it a #resteem... Hope that helps. 👍

·

Thanks a lot, your contribution is very much appreciated!

Not a problem my friend. I would of liked it to be more. Maybe in the future I can up it a bit.

Resteemed to give you more visibility

Resteemed! Good luck with your endeavor, I think you have a great idea.

Resteemed.

Upvoted and Resteemed...

Resteemed and request !! My RC will only allow me to make under 10 posts/comments a week and this comment is one of my two posts for today. I would really appreciate some help so I can not only add interesting and different content to Steemit but to help out others in this same situation.

Hi kipswolfe,

You are the first redfish to be selected for a delegation.
Your delegation is already there, hope that your will be able to interact with less restrictions now.

·
·

Thank you so much for helping me. I will make sure and pay it forward in the coming days/months/whatever.

Gracias por ese gran proyecto, sera de mucha ayuda, para gallineta nórdica, un cariñoso abrazo, @frdem3dot0

En el centro de este proyecto se encuentran la gallineta nórdica, personas que son nuevas en Steem y que aún tienen una participación muy pequeña

Resteemed. I'd love to see this work and benefit red fish. I don't have much right now but I'll be around and see what I can do to help soon.

Resteemed. Thank you!

👏 wonderful kind efforts, good assessment of the situation!
I've resteemed and upvoted it, to help boost it up and get noticed by more other people.

... very controversial resource credits system... may discourage new users from joining the steem community and therefore poses a threat to the healthy growth of our userbase...
Its a social network that makes social interaction impossible...

that's right, totally agree with you! these are my thoughts as well.

for Steem to succeed I believe the following points to bee crucial...
Currently these goals are not met and because steem is a decentralised project it is really up to us to make this a reality...

glad to see here more examples of caring people who does realize that this project can continue ONLY if people who can would help others. because I see too much of a HYIP mentality all around (which is actually encouraged or even urged by the System itself)

What is ROI of the bot??

·

The ROI is not that great since your steem is partially used to support redfish. You will get upvotes corresponding to 1000% of your delegation or donation every two days. That is roughly half of what a normal upvote bot schould give you.

You just Stump on Redfish Community

·

Redfish community is a great project. It would be extremely nice if we could work together so I can find the engaged redfish that can use a little more sp to interact.

·
·

Honestly, There is less Redfish active users on this moment! I know a lot before and they are now in Minnow stage, Some that are still in Redfish are not active

I love this concept. Anything that helps make newcomers feel welcome and able to contribute is great. Time to have a trawl through my contacts and see who here may have gone quiet but could qualify - I'm thinking I've not heard a lot from @brickblaze lately
