RE: New Feature: Request a Curation Review By Burning STEEM & SBD

in #smartsteem5 years ago (edited)

I applaud this initiative

This is an immense improvement over the previous smartsteem that like all other vote selling services, merely acted as an intermediary of helping stakeholders launder the value of their votes and in the process out compete honest curation and undermine our entire proof of brain value proposition. That's not really a criticism of smartsteem directly, as you were merely a product of a broken economy.

Now that the new economy is in I'm glad to see you adapt in a way that isn't just some 'raising standards of vote buying' which we both have acknowledged doesn't do anything in practice.

This is fantastic, let me clarify a few issues:

  • So this is entirely a curation initiative? No exchange of money for votes in any way correct? Just a burn to null, or is this in addition to smartsteem still serving as a vote selling service?
  • How will your services be funded?
  • Finally, are you willing to consider moving your smartmarket buisness into the same or similar curation service, as last I estimated you have at least 8m SP assets under management there still contributing to undermining honest curation unfortunately

Either way I'm very happy to hear this wolf. Hopefully before too long curation will be the dominant form of staking returns and honest voting will be the norm. I think this will benefit everyone the most in the long term.

Correct. It's without any sort of agreement or exchange in the form of votes/money. This is purely for the good of the platform.

How will your services be funded?

Currently via curation rewards in exchange for SmartPoins, which can be utilized sometime in the near future.

Finally, are you willing to consider moving your smartmarket buisness into the same or similar curation service, as last I estimated you have at least 8m SP assets under management there still contributing to undermining honest curation unfortunately

Yes, but only as soon as we've got an alternative for our users. So far, we've stopped accepting transfers to @smartsteem and am currently redirecting them to @smartmarket. But this is only a temporary measure. The ultimate goal is to move completely to curation and services which are 100% in-line with attracting and retaining users.

I cant argue with this, and hope the other bot services do the same.

I want to know the answer to these questions too. Though I'm pretty sure this is another service for #smartsteem on top of what they have, rather than changing of their services.

The suspense is killing me! 😜
