It’s been a hassle for most people to delegate Steem Power (SP) to @minnowsupport. Incorrect information, confusing equations, a question of how much to delegate, etc. So here’s the deal: I’m going to tell you how to do it, and how much you should delegate. And I promise I’ll make it easy.

How Much to Delegate
The question of questions. Somewhere between 10-25% of your available SP seems reasonable. That’s AT MOST ¼ of the weight of your vote. A few cents for most members. That leaves you with plenty of additional SP for curating great content and for that initial boost on your own articles.
What matters is that you’re supporting the MinnowSupportProject. Because it’ll support back. Don't forget to re-evaluate your contribution every few weeks, and up your delegated SP as you grow!

Want to Delegate a Different Amount?
Delegation is sent in vests, which are calculated using the following equation, rounded to SIX decimal places:
(1,000,000 / steem_per_mvest) x (Desired SP Delegation)
Where steem_per_mvest is found by going to https://steemd.com/ and looking at the top right. Currently it’s 483.23
Example for 250 SP:
(1,000,000 / 483.23) x (250)
(2,069.407942) x (250)
Here’s the generic link:
Where username is your username, target is your targets username, and 0.000000 gets replaced with your desired vest amount (to six decimal places, even if they’re 0’s).
