I am still getting SBD, why?

in sbd •  12 days ago

So we have broken the peg, which means we are above 10% debt ratio, but are still printing SBD?

I am still being rewarded with SBD. My understanding was that printing would stop when the peg is broken? or are we bouncing around 9% and 10% so much that sometimes I still get some SBD?

I am still confused how this works?

I have also been watching this as I have been surprised at a little SBD dusting coming as rewards. I think that the SBD conversion process is serving its purposes to reduce the SBD outstanding as I believe that over 3 million have been burnt. Given the slight increase in Steem price, we could be borderline the debt ratio.

We need about 0.405 on the STEEM price now, down from about 0.415 when the limit was hit. Unfortunately, the STEEM price is going in the other direction.

I saw that I got a very small amount of rewards in SBD. It could be that we were very close to the threshold and that when the price spiked, it pushed us back under 10% by a little thereby causing small amounts of SBD to be printed. Now that we're back over the threshold, the SBD seems to be gone again.


Its a bug. SBD is still printing at 1%.

I am also curious about this. In the last couple of days I only got STEEM and SP but no SBD. However, I see people getting SBD also. I think that the payout must be a little bit higher in order to get SBDs too. I only saw it when posts received more than 1$ in upvotes.

I never understood why we need to get two cryptos in the first place. It is just time taking converting SBD to STEEM and I think this also burns quite a lot of resources in the blockchain.

I really hope you were the only one with that bug, because, although it is a small amount, if it is broken then we might have a technical problem on our hands.

Me personally, I haven't received SBD from post´s payouts for a long time.

I have read through the discussions through this link; https://github.com/steemit/steem/issues/3184 provided by @timcliff in his comment above and I think the explanations were quite clear. Nothing more to add.

I'm also getting some SBD, I think it fluctuates between 9 and 10.

I'm getting a tiny bit too every day, in the .001-.004 range I'm still heading towards that elusive 500sp slider. 👍
