Operation Slider Delegation

in ocd •  3 days ago

O.C.D (Operation Curation & Decentralization) was born two years ago with one main focus on the Steem blockchain: Curate and help with a fair stake distribution on the platform.

We began to push this objective with the @OCD project (Operation Curation Delegation) to distribute the reward pool among High Quality content creators by giving high votes and rewarding authors through a rigorous curation process operated by an experienced team. In these two years, we have supported thousands of users posting in ten languages and distributed tens of thousands of Steem among them.

After the bid-bots became popular we launched @OCDB (Operation curation Bot). The first 100% non-profit distribution bot available only to whitelisted authors. By distributing among the delegators all the liquid steem sent to the bot and also the curation rewards and, at the same time ensuring that the post authors always get a profit - as long as the market isn't too volatile - we kept striving for stake distribution.

We know we need more users to join the Steem Blockchain, which is exactly why @steemonboarding was created and we are already coming up with ways to help the platform reach mass adoption and at the same time, support these new accounts via curation and thus, continuing on the path for Stake distribution.

Recently, a big part of the stake holders have decided to back @ocd-witness and we are currently among the top 20 witnesses.

First of all, thank you very much for your trust and support, we really appreciate this big signal that so far, we are going in the correct direction as a community focused witness.

Our rewards as witness have taken a huge boost. The witness team has a long term vested Steem mindset, so we are not planning on powering down these rewards in the near future, except for a small percentage which will help us cover costs.

@OSD - Operation Slider Delegation

Instead of only using these witness rewards we are generating for curation with OCD and thus helping the stake distribution, we have decided to empower long term thinking, high quality content creators who are new and have little Steem Power but have proven they trust, are committed and most importantly, give value to the Steem Community.

We will pick five users per week to receive a delegation from our witness so they get enough SP delegation to enable their Voting Slider, being able to curate content in a more effective way and increasing engagement by being able to cast more votes daily and contributing themselves to the stake distribution among other users in the platform.

This delegation will stay with the users as long as they don't power down and they post at least 3 times a week, among other smaller details. These users will also receive direct support on their posts from our witness account and the personal accounts of @acidyo and @anomadsoul to help them reach the slider level, then once they get there we take in new users. In a combined effort this will lead to one of the fastest and ways of creating minnows this platform has ever seen before.

This means that every week we will have a fixed amount of 5 new users getting this delegation plus a variable amount of users graduating from the program, opening spots for more people to receive a delegation.

Know that if you decide to delegate to @ocd-witness, the stake will only be used for this purpose.

Next Sunday we will announce the first group of users that will be part of the first Operation Slider Delegation. for transparency purposes, every Sunday we will post an update on the project and once a month we will include some statistics and KPIs.

Thanks for reading and supporting OCD throughout the years, we're looking forward to see more minnows on Steem than ever before.

Good work guys, it's amazing how many different programs are available to get started on the platform. It can truly make someone new to the community feel special and appreciated. Hat off to all supporters.

That's exactly what we aim for, a more robust "middle class" made out of more and more minnows!

I'm proud to be part of a team that's spreading so much support through the Steem Ecosystem <3

Well I really like this idea! Good luck with choosing the right Steemians because that will be a hell of a task! Will follow the lead and upvote theirs posts also from time to time. It is also a $0.06 upvote but all small things do add up!
Cheers,
Peter

congrats on top 20!

Thanks man!

We will pick five users per week to receive a delegation from our witness so they get enough SP delegation to enable their Voting Slider,

This is great. I have been helping new members for a few months now with my SP delegation giveaway and very happy to see that others are doing more then I can possibly do with my limited resources.

·

Every individual effort works towards the same goal! We might be open to suggestions in the future about people who could do wonders with the slider :)

·

I will keep my eye open for that. I also run the Minnow Builder project which is giving free upvotes to plankton to help move them to minnowhood. Have a decent list of people that would benefit from a delegation. Our requirements are that they create original content (not just app spam) and power up earnings (within reason).

I love this initiative :D I'm delegating myself to some newbies but I think more powerful delegators than a smol spider will make the platform more welcoming to new users! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay~

·

Smol spider is also changing some Plankton's reality! I'd say smoke spider is doing good :k

This is fantastic news and will go a long way in getting the 10k minnows by the end of the year.

Great work guys.

The so long wanted steem middle class, hopefully we reach that number this year

Is there a way to apply to be looked at or is it just a whatever you guys find and like type of thing?

It'll be a mix of curators finding accounts posting quality and original content combined with accounts already whitelisted of @ocdb that are not at 500 SP yet, this is something that can change in the near future, though. :)

Thanks! By any chance is there a guide on how to apply for whitelisting?

Just keep creating above mentioned content and an OCD curator is bound to stumble upon you at some point, we're trying to get as many whitelisted as fast as possible but thorough curation is required to avoid abuse of @ocdb. :)

Fair enough. Thanks!

Combined with @steemonboarding this could have some pretty awesome results over time. Good luck!

·

Exactly! Really hoping we can make a full wheel and work in sincronicity, growing exponentially the number of planktons, minnows and why not, dolphins on the platform :)

Sounds good!

I hope it’s really helping people without voice but with great contents!

Next Sunday we will announce the first group of users that will be part of the first Operation Slider Delegation. for transparency purposes, every Sunday we will post an update on the project and once a month we will include some statistics and KPIs.

🖕That’s lovely, we’ll wait eagerly!!

Glad to be in OCD team to help more new people here. Exciting times are coming!

Grateful to have been here with the @ocd team since day 1. They've helped many steemians!

Excellent initiative, I would like to be taken into account for some delegation or participate in some way in these projects.

Valuable contribution to the community, it is necessary to support the quality content that is emerging.

Long live @acidyo @ocd @anomadsoul @ocd-witness for supporting this initiative.

Great idea, congratulations.
