Introducing Infestor: Claim and create discounted STEEM accounts on your command line

in infestor •  6 months ago

One of the new features of HF20 is ability to claim and create discounted accounts paid by your resource credits. You can skip burning the account creation fee and instead you can use your RCs.

Created accounts example with this method doesn't have any SP on it but have a couple of RCs to interact with the chain.

RC levels on a newly created account with this way.


infestor is a multi-platform command line application to claim and create accounts easily.

Claiming accounts requires lots of resource credits, but if you have enough SP to create a couple then you can constantly claim new accounts and use if to onboard your friends, or new users for your dApp, etc.

It also gives information about the RC costs, your limits, etc.

Thanks for the contribution, @emrebeyler! I just claimed one account with it and now my RC are down to 3.3% lol. I guess I can set up a cron job that runs every ~4 days...

Anyway, cool CLI once again! Funny name for it as well. There are some grammatical errors, but that's obviously not a big deal. Will probably submit a pull request for that later if you don't mind.

Thanks for the review.

Good to hear that you can at least claim :) Infestor uses getpass to get the active key on account claims, so it's not really crontab friendly. But I guess adding an optional support for environment var on the active key might work.

Yeah, literally posted it and went out straight to eat some burgers. I will fix some of them, now. :)

Ofc, I would love to see PRs.

Thank you for your review, @amosbastian!

So far this week you've reviewed 14 contributions. Keep up the good work!

Can you convert it to float please, 0 is hurting my feelings, I'm able to create half an account.

Thanks for another helpful tool. I'm gonna give it a try after some power-ups/leases.

lol, maybe you can find similar accounts and combine your SP? :)

How do I install this... $ pip install infestor? Do i need to run this in a python compiler?

Gawd, could anything be more complicated for the average user? Not your fault, it's a good idea but even I can do this.

Really?? It seems so complex. It took me a few months to figure out what was going on here. I do hope it gets easier.
