Hot on the heels of @crowdfundedwhale's initiative which I wrote about in The Crowd Funded Whale Experiement, @virtualgrowth has expanded the Steemprentice project to include an auto voted guild of supporters. You can read the full details here on the annoucement thread: ANN: Steemprentice Account Group Investing, Sharing, Voting, Writing - 10 STEEM to join or donate or write a post.
The premise seems similar to the crowd funded whale in that if you are an original content creator seeking to gain another upvote behind your posts you can donate to the project to get on a auto vote bot. The price is a minimum of 10STEEM. I have sent over that amount and will let you guys know if it was worth it after giving the project a chance to grow.
