Delegating SP to @minnowsupport with Steem Python

in minnowsupport •  2 years ago


The Minnow Support Team is changing Steemit forever for minnows. By pooling our combined Steem Power, @minnowsupport has become a force for good on the platform.

One great way that Steemians can help this cause is by delegating Steem Power to the @minnowsupport account. When you delegate Steem Power, you essentially are "lending" a bit of your power to the account you delegate it to. You still own the SP and can remove the delegation at any time.

For those that are interested in contributing to the cause, but want to keep their keys locally, Steem Python is a great option!

This simple Python script makes it easy to delegate SP to @minnowsupport!

Would love to hear feedback.

print('MinnowSupport Delegator')

from steem import Steem
from steem.converter import Converter

stact = input('Please provide your account name.')
stkey = input('Please provide your private active key. This information is stored locally and will not be transmitted elsewhere. ===> ')

steem = Steem(keys=[stkey])
sp = int(input('How much SP do you want to delegate to @minnowsupport? '))
vests = '{} VESTS'.format(Converter().sp_to_vests(sp))

steem.delegate_vesting_shares('minnowsupport', vests, stact)
print(sp, 'SP delegated to @minnowsupport from ', stact, '. Thank you for your support!')

@jaredcwillis I'm new steemian here and know knowledge about lending or leasing steem to minnowbooster or minnowsupport.kindly make me understand what is its benefits?I m also interested in it but due to technical inefficiency i can not perticipate in this platform.would you help me please?


Let me explain :
If you lend your steempower in Minnowbooste that would be delegating to someone for 4 weeks for example and then you will be paid for it between 15-30 % annual but you can delegate to minnowbooster too and to that you will get rewarded a Percentage of the sells, you can even just keep your SP and just sell your vote in Smartsteem or minnowbooster. the benefits you sell your votes or SP to get passive income and to support the community so that every SP in put in good use. This not all you still need to do some research but that was the basics ^^

I'd also recommend the Vessel Steem wallet client. It's a great app that has an easy UI for delegating SP.


Great option, I haven't used it yet myself. Have preferred the DIY approach!


Yeah man, definitely second this. I'd say Vessel is the best, especially for newcomers.

And I tried to upvote your comment but since I delegated all my SP, the $0.00 is all I got lol


I'm with you! When I first started playing around with it, I actually delegated all my SP out of an account to the point that I couldn't post, or even undelegate the SP I'd delegated! We need some warning signs!


HAHHA happened to me today. Playing with bots so I delegated all my SP. Then I couldn't do anything from my main account. So I had to delegate SP from another account I had to keep my main account going... turning into a huge clusterF@ck lol


Same here, I was just trying to pool the power of a couple accounts after the recent hardfork, because I switched off my autovoting. So now I can just vote manually on my main account here. But I've done the same! Had to delegate power back to an account delegating to me, so that I could keep posting from it.

Can i join this event?

@bryan-imhoff just mentioned vessel. This is a much easier place to start if you're new!


wow, I just downloaded Vessel. It's a beautiful tool.

Hey guys. This looks like a great initiative and would ;love to support the team. i'm quite new to all this so need some guidance for the same.

I keep seeing these bots, and have read a post about other pay bots. but how do these free bots work for the minnows?
