gator.rb - STEEM Power Delegation script for STEEMsteemCreated with Sketch.

in radiator •  last year

Overview

Gator allows you to delegate STEEM Power from one account to another. This script is especially useful for dealing with multiple delegator accounts, like mined accounts.


Install

To use this Radiator script:

Linux
$ sudo apt-get install ruby-full git openssl libssl1.0.0 libssl-dev
$ gem install bundler
macOS
$ gem install bundler

I've tested it on various versions of ruby. The oldest one I got it to work was:

ruby 2.0.0p645 (2015-04-13 revision 50299) [x86_64-darwin14.4.0]

First, clone this gist and install the dependencies:

$ git clone https://gist.github.com/3107372d2a52fed7c8f1a2e943cf6300.git gator
$ cd gator
$ bundle install

Edit the file delegators.txt and add all of the accounts you want to delegate from. You must use the active-wif.


Upgrade

Typically, you can upgrade to the latest version by this command, from the original directory you cloned into:

$ git pull

Usually, this works fine as long as you haven't modified anything. If you get an error, try this:

$ git stash --all
$ git pull --rebase
$ git stash pop

If you're still having problems, I suggest starting a new clone.


Usage

To do the actual delegation:

$ ruby gator.rb vesting_shares:42437.7 delegatee:inertia broadcast:true

Gator will now delegate 42437.700000 VESTS to inertia (for example).

To delegate a dynamic amount based on the current vesting balance of each delegator:

$ ruby gator.rb vesting_shares:auto delegatee:inertia broadcast:true

Gator will now delegate 100% of vesting - 1 STEEM to inertia. It is advisable to leave some VESTS on the account, otherwise it won't have enough bandwidth to do anything.

To reset delegation:

$ ruby gator.rb vesting_shares:0 delegatee:inertia broadcast:true

Gator will now remove all delegation for each delegator from inertia. Keep in mind, when resetting delegation, any amount that was previously delegated will be in limbo and take 7 days to return to the original delegator.

Troubleshooting

Problem: What does this error mean?
gator.yml:1: syntax error, unexpected ':', expecting end-of-input
Solution: You ran ruby gator.yml but you should run ruby gator.rb.

for it to work I had to add gem "json" to Gemfile

·

I trying in not work, can you share how to add JSON to Gemfile?

Yes, lets get this foible going so we can fix it, sooner.

We already know that whale feeding starves the minnows, do we really have to go backwards to go forwards, it appears so,...

I mean that by allowing the whales to powerup their friends they will starve everybody else.

We have already seen what happens when the whales are given a free run at the reward pool.

I know it sounds good to spread the wealth, but when you give it to the people at the top it stays at the top.
If you give it to the bottom, the top will have it quick as the bottom can get to a store, anyways.

I don't know why you're on this platform.

Lol, it has nothing to do with rewards,....

·
·
·
·
·

Then why complain about rewards?

·
·
·

For the people that a few dollars changes their lives,...

thanks for sharing good information...^^

Thank you for the valuable information!

So basically, if you have say ... 2000 accounts, you can with this script power down all those accounts to 1 account... Happy Birthday @noganoo :)

Yeah, hopefully this can be the end of his 2000 accounts reign of terror :X

·
·

That is good news for everyone. Good for him.

·

Are you even allowed to have 2000 accounts? I could see how having a separate account for a witness would make sense but why would anyone have 2000?

·
·

Yes, you are allowed to have as many accounts as you want. As for "why," you'll just have to ask them.

Thanks dude! I ain't run root for months now!! ... I've got meme-itis!

This is what every decentralized whale needs. :-)

Congrats, @inertia! Lively post. Very engaging.
