We are just putting out a short announcement to let everyone know we are back to business as usual. @smartsteem has recovered it’s voting power, now called mana, and is back online.
We have already resumed vote selling through our system for a few days now, as you may have noticed but many vote-sellers needed to wait for their voting capacity to replenish before jumping back on the train tracks.
So if you're in need of promotion, Smartsteem.com is there for you again.
Now, before we end this post, there are 2 important changes.
1.) Are you powering down?
One of the new changes for Steem is that Steempower for the current week that is powered down, isn't able to be used for vote-selling.
That means, if you have 1000 SP and are currently powering down 500 SP, then you're only able to sell your vote worth 961.6 SP. The rest is only available if you stop the power-down.
2.) 15 minute post-age
Besides that, another change is that all (or parts) of the curation rewards before 15 minutes are being re-distributed to the reward-pool.
This is why @smartsteem as well as @smartmarket are only processing transfers once they are 15 minutes old. But fear not: if you send a transfer for promotion before the post is 15 minutes old, we will simply wait until the given time.

To sum it up:
All operations are back to normal.
Thank you for your patience!
