# Introducing @smartvote, the Steem quality content upvote system

in #introduceyourelf6 years ago (edited)

Hello Steemians, we are excited to introduce you to SmartVote, a new SP delegation-based content upvote service. SmartVote service has been designed for quality content creators who are willing to submit posts or comments on a daily basis. It will allow you get the best of your voting power.

SmartVote Services Banner

The SmartVote team is composed of Steemians who love and believe in Steem. We want to work on the long term and help improving Steem by giving incentives to quality content creators. By providing with a simple and reliable way for content creators to get return on their effort, we are hoping to make Steem even more attractive to not only retain existing users by also bring new bloggers in.

SmartVote does not target just Steemians with a large wallet, we also want to help Planktons and Minnows to grow into bigger fishes. So our entry SP delegation amount is very accessible (more on that in the the min/max section below).

The concept

The SmartVote system works via SP delegation from its members and combines the received delegated SP to provide a return the form of daily upvotes on your posts or comments at 10x your delegate SP.

The rules

These rules are created to protect both parties involved and to promote better content to the Steem blockchain and add value to it. The major rules to participate in the SmartVote community are:

  1. Quality content: single photo, short posts, plagiarism, copy/pasting, spam and scam posts are not allowed.
  2. Violence, self-harm, politics & political opinion, religion, nsfw and drugs are not allowed.
  3. We won’t allow transfer of your vote quota to a second choice if you don’t have any posts or comments during the day.
  4. SmartVote reserves the right to refuse members that don’t meet those criteria and stop upvoting existing authors breaking them.

Get rewarded for quality content

Quality content

Our aim is to help Steemians grow on the Steem blockchain but also to add value to the blockchain itself. This is why, we will require posts and comments to meet certain quality criteria.

In order to be selected for a daily upvote, your content must meet these minimum requirements in addition to the rules above:

  • Posts have to be at least 170 words long
  • Comments have to be at least 10 words long and related to the post they are added on

The process

We wanted to make this service as simple to use and as safe as possible. Here are 5 simple steps to receive upvotes from SmartVote:

  1. Delegate an amount of SP (see the min/max section below) to our @smartvote account and you will receive in return 10x of that SP as daily upvote on your posts or comments.
  2. We will start to upvote your posts or comments every day at 12:00 AM (Midnight) EST, upvoting for your oldest (up to 5 days old) content first.
  3. If no eligible (see the rules and quality content sections above) content is found, you will not receive any vote. Unused votes cannot be accumulated for later use. Left-over SP from unused votes will be later used for Minnow Support contests to encourage community growth on the platform.
  4. The bot will not leave any comments on your content.
  5. At any time, if you are not satisfied with our service, you can simply un-delegate and take back all your SP. You have full control and nothing to loose.

Taking a break

One of the recipes for success on Steem is: quality over quantity (write less often but of higher quality), dedication (keep up with the good work) and engagement (don’t be a lonewolf, socialize, comment on other’s posts, reply to comments on your posts).

But there are times when you might need to take a break and won’t be able to write content for an extended period of time, you can choose to switch from daily upvotes to daily payout mode (see the list of transfer memo commands further down). In the daily payout mode, you will receive daily transfers of STEEM into your wallet at a rate of 13% per year (see details below).

The return On Investment (ROI)

SmartVote is offering one of the highest ROI from your own Steem Power (SP) in comparison to other similar services on the Steem blockchain.

Daily upvote on your content

For every SP you delegate to the @smartvote account, you will receive one daily upvote at 100% vote weight from a vote power equal to 10x the delegated SP.

For example:

  • If you delegate 75 SP, @smartvote will upvote you at 100% weight with 750 SP.
  • If you delegate 200 SP, @smartvote will upvote you at 100% weight with 2000 SP.
  • If you delegate 500 SP, @smartvote will upvote you at 100% weight with 5000 SP.
  • If you delegate 1000 SP, @smartvote will upvote you at 100% weight with 10000 SP.
  • If you delegate 5000 SP, @smartvote will upvote you at 100% weight with 50000 SP.

To help you estimate your ROI, we have built the SmartVote Calculator

Smartvote Daily Steem Payout.jpg

Daily payout of STEEM your wallet

If you need to go on holidays and are not able to post any content, you can choose to switch from daily upvotes to daily payout. Delegate some SP to @smartvote to help us upvote quality content on the Steem blockchain and get rewarded at a rate of 13% per annum relative to the amount of SP you have delegated.

For example:

  • If you delegate 100 SP, @smartvote will pay you 0.0356 Steem daily
  • If you delegate 200 SP, @smartvote will pay you 0.07123 Steem daily
  • If you delegate 400 SP, @smartvote will pay you 0.1425 Steem daily
  • If you delegate 500 SP, @smartvote will pay you 0.178 Steem daily
  • If you delegate 1000 SP, @smartvote will pay you 0.356 Steem daily
  • If you delegate 5000 SP, @smartvote will pay you 1.78 Steem daily

In the Add or Update Delegation pane, enter smartvote as delegatee, enter the Amount in SP you want to delegate and click on the Delegate! button.

IMPORTANT NOTES: Minimum and maximum SP to delegate

We are hopping to create a quality service that can be sustainable. So as the SmartVote community is growing, we will need to support all the members and manage to still upvote existing members to the value of their delegations. This is why there is a minimum and maximum amount of SP a new member can delegate to the @smartvote account. As we are trying to be flexible, if you are willing to delegate an amount outside of this range, please contact us on Discord and we will try to get to an arrangement.

Minimum amount of SP to delegate = 0.1% of @smartvote total SP.
So if @smartvote has 75,000 SP, the minimum to delegate is 75 SP.

Minimum amount of SP to delegate = 25 SP

Maximum amount of SP to delegate = 11% of @smartvote total SP.
So if @smartvote has 75,000 SP, the maximum to delegate is 8250 SP

SmartVote transfer commands

You can set your SmartVote membership preferences by simply making a 0.001 STEEM transfer with the following commands in the transfer MEMO:

  • daily upvote all: this transfer MEMO command will enable a daily upvote on your posts and fall back to your comments if no posts are found
  • daily upvote posts: this transfer MEMO command will enable a daily upvote on your posts only, if no posts are found then you will not receive any upvotes
  • daily upvote comments: this transfer MEMO command will enable a daily upvote on your comments only, if no comments are found then you will not receive any upvotes
  • daily payout: this transfer MEMO command will enable a daily payout. You will receive a daily transfer of STEEM to your wallet.

This sounds like an interesting thing to be part of. Very attractive. I’m really looking forward to see how this works.

Particularly pleased to see there are also some guidelines clearly stated about quality of posts that will be upvoted.

I’m also quite impressed at the option for when one needs to take a break – something I feel is important from a self-care perspective!!

Hi, thanks for coming around.
We are trying to be as transparent as possible and offer a features to make it flexible. As we go we will add more interesting features.

You can always start with a small delegation to see how it goes, you can un-delegate at anytime.

Please join our Discord server https://discord.gg/nGkEtAc if you have more question or feel free to continue this comment thread.

It is a good way to help grow newbies in the community and also help the older members to achieve greater heights. I love the philosophy behind this great idea. I sure will be a part of it. Thanks for the information.

Thank you for your support

You are welcome @smartvote!

I want to use it How to work @smartvote

Hi @taithanhvu, I sent you a DM on Discord.

This sounds like an interesting thing to be part of. Very attractive. I’m really looking forward to see how this works.

Hi @victorialuxx, the best way to see how it works is to try it with a small delegation which you can increase or cancel at anytime without risk. Don't hesitate to ask for more info or clarification.

Awesome idea, thank you! How does the actual return compare to delegating so to minnowbooster?

Posted using Partiko Android

Hi @origin-al, MB and SV operate differently. SV should be giving more ROI than MB as we don't take any fees. This is delegation, so you can always try to delegate a small amount of SP to both services and see how they compare and then cancel the delegation at anytime.

Please tell us what criteria of quality content for Dtube and Dlive in what case people will receive votes for their videos?

Posted using Partiko Android

Thanks for asking, videos are a tricky case. Until we find a better way to assess them, we will upvote our members’ DLive and Dtube videos regardless of whether or not it contains any text in the description. The team is currently not big enough for the task.

We will see how it goes for now and will sure make an update post if the rule changes.

Thank you! We will wait for next update in rules.

Congrats on your launch!

Looks like, that is what we needed here.Will follow up closely, I sense a huge potential.

Feel free to trial with a small delegation and see it for yourself and don’t hesitate to ask if you have any question

Really? So instead of using our Steem Power to curate, we get to waste it all on ourselves? THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE ALL NEED. Steemit will be so much better now, no doubt about it.

/rant


This is the exact opposite of what I'm doing.

@felipejoys thanks for your feedback. We don't recommend anyone to delegate all their SP to our service, our delegation tool does say it. Curation is one important aspect of the platform. The team members are fans of the Steem Blockchain and think for it for the long term.

I was really rude and sorry for that. I firmly stand by my point, though.

No worries and we do respect your point of view.

Best of luck for bright future of this concept
