Vessel 0.0.6 - Steem Power Delegation

3 months ago
69 in steem-project

Thanks to some help from @fabien with steem-js and @vandeberg for pointing out the APIs, the newest release of Vessel now lets you manage Steem Power Delegation.

Newest Version: 0.0.6a

Download available on github for macOS, Windows and Linux.

Screenshots

Steem Power Delegation Screen

https://steemdb.com/vessel/21.png

The interface is found within the Accounts section. This interface shows all accounts loaded, their total vests, available vests to delegate, how many vests are already delegated and where they are delegated to. The green plus button lets you start a new delegation.


Delegation Setup

https://steemdb.com/vessel/21.png

Clicking the + button will prompt you for two pieces of information:

  • An Account Name: Which account you'd like to delegate to.
  • The Amount: The slider allows you to configure how many vests will be delegated to that account.

I've also included a messages at the bottom of the screen with a small explanation of delegation.


Displaying Active Delegations

https://steemdb.com/vessel/21.png

The overview screen now displays your active delegation(s), who they are to, the amount, and the date it can be revoked. Each row also has a small orange trash can, which let's you remove the delegation and revoke your vests.

When revoking the delegation, the VESTS will be locked in limbo for 7 days. This is to prevent people from double voting with the same Steem Power twice.

Change Log

  • Added Steem Power Delegation and Cancelling
  • Sending Interface
    • After a transaction is sent, only the to, amount and memo fields will reset, instead of everything.
    • Added OpenLedger to the list of exchanges (as well as memo fields in the settings).
  • Vesting/Power Down
    • The power down popup got a slight facelift and a few colors.
  • Accounts
    • Added the SP Delegation Tab
    • Added icons to each of the menu items.
  • Experimental Key Generation
    • Added a close button so you can get out without restarting
    • Added copy to clipboard for all sections - thanks to @AugustoL for adding that in!
  • Various bug fixes + linting

Next up

I'm planning to stop on Vessel for a little bit and focus on chainBB for the coming weeks. I will address any critical issues that arise as they're reported but no new features will be implemented in the near future. At this point I'm personally using the wallet for all of my accounts daily.

One last thing, are you a twitter user?

If so - make sure to take part in Bobby Lee's twitter poll and vote for Steem as the currency that should be added to BTCC. The more exchanges we can get supporting Steem, the more options all of us will have to buy or sell Steem :)

Explain to me what is delegation?

Someone else gets to vote with your steem power - you delegate it. It is mostly for people with a LOT of steem power who have a reason to share it. What are some of the most obvious reasons, anyone?

Say you go on Vacation and you wont be around a computer. It might be nice to delegate some power for that time to one of your followers/friends.

hi jesta, I have downloaded the mac version but honestly speaking it doesn't work for me. I have followed the easy instructions but once I am on Accounts, I can't accede to SP delegation. I am clicking on it but nothing change. Any advice? And thank you for your great job

Not sure if it was you to whom I replied on Github, but sorry I forgot to give the link (kind of unuseful comment). So yea, use /releases to watch for them. By the way, just migrated to the new version 0.0.6-h.

Phenomenal tool. I have a question about the "Experimental - Generating Keys". My understanding, when I generate new keys, if I send a small amount of SBD to the new account, will that create it on the steem network?

·

Not exactly, but close.

With that feature of Vessel, you can create 3x public/private keys, of which you can use the public keys to create a new account through the command line wallet.

The goal is to eventually allow account creation through the wallet, but right now you'd have to take those public keys and use them within the cli_wallet to do the creation. Someone else could also do the creation if you gave them the public keys (which is safe, just never give away the private keys) - which is also something I'd like to add to the wallet.

It'd be super nice to be able to say "Hey friend, download Vessel and generate some keys. Then send me the public keys, and I'll create an account for you in my Vessel wallet!". Then I'd pay the fee for their account creation, and they'd have an account, all while never sharing those private keys with anyone!

·
·
56

What's the fee to create accounts? Who do you pay it to?
There's always the possiblity to create a frontend for the cli_wallet and use the keys to generate an account. Perhaps I'll play with that in Delphi or Lazarus.
Even if they shared the private keys with you, they can always change them once the account is active on steemit :)

·

It changes occasionally, but you can do it one of two ways:

  • With delegation (cost would be like 0.2 STEEM + 65k VESTS delegated)
  • Without delegation (last I knew this method was like 20 STEEM)

They also shouldn't have to share the private keys. The create account API call only needs public keys. So having them generate the keys safely offline and sharing the public keys creates a very safe (and potentially offline) method of registration.

I need to dig into account creation services at some point here soon for chainBB, I'm hoping to pair it with Vessel :)

What an interesting post, thank you for sharing. When I joined steemit last year I was overwhelmed by the obvious potential of the "platform" and the "ground breaking" commitment of the individuals involved. Like anything else, there's good and bad; but like any "infant" it must be guided and encouraged to reach its full potential. The same must be said for its members; I'm proud to say that I/we have played a part in the development so far and only want BIG things for both steem and all the individuals involved.

Excellent news!!!

this is great, @jesta. Congrats to you (and all of us fellow-Steemians here) on this important milestone.

Good choice to now focus on chainBB as I cannot wait to see this one!

Your latest focus chainBB will be revolutionizing things again, I am pretty sure, this time the likes from bitcointalk or microstockgroup.com all the way down to Blogger- and WordPress.com-hosted sites...

Followed earlier already and Upvoted, of course, in order to keep the party here going ;)

Steem delegation is a nice feature on Steemit. Basically we can delegate our SP to others so they can curate for us?

Hi @jesta. To delegate to another account. Do you need to have the account at your wallet or you can delegate to any user? My app is not allowing me to select the delegation tab... any suggestions? really need that... Thansk in advance! AAMAAAAZZIIINNNGGG WORK! =)

·
69
  ·  3 months ago

You can delegate to anyone and no, you don't need the designated account in your wallet.

I'm going to look into why that's happening today and hopefully release a quick hotfix build to fix it.

Hi @jesta, this is good project.
Can I translate this article into Chinese?

52
  ·  3 months ago

Hi @jesta, can I kindly ask (when possible) to add the option to insert the amount of SP in the SP delegation section? Like, clicking on it will allow the edit (and then after pressing enter to fix it up the wallet will update the vesting total and move the sliding dot to the correct position):

Ignore the error message... I was testing delegating to myself. =)

for some reason tabs do not works for me, and I cannot switch to last one :/

BTW. could you add somewhere to the interface a version number?

·
69
  ·  3 months ago

Good call on that. I'll add it into the settings page or something for reference.

·
·
63

and also some minor things which really bothers me... when I chose particular section, like Overview, Send, Vesting.... there is no graphical indication, which section is currently chosen.

Currently chosen section should be highlighted somehow.

Also I just saw a github report the same thing, do you know if you're using 0.0.6a or was that why you were asking for a version number somewhere? :)

·
·
63
  ·  3 months ago

I was asking for this because at the beginning I looked for "SP Delegation" in the wrong tab, and I wasn't able to find it... so I started wondering whether upgrade was successful.

I just discovered on macOS you can use this dropdown:

Not sure if that exists for the other OSes, but it's probably there :)

·

·
·
63
  ·  3 months ago

good to know, but still I think I would be better if that would be more visible. Then people will no have troubles to report on which version they encounter some problems. :)

·
·
·
·
63
  ·  3 months ago

and... there is no such option in Linux :(

·
·
·
·

I also cannot switch to SP delegation tab @Jesta. I tried on Windows 10 and windows 7.

·

I'll dig back into this over the weekend and test why both Linux and Windows are having issues with the new tab.

Love this app! I did just recently try to adjust a delegation to add more power to it, but it reset the delegation to only the added amount and withdrew the initial SP. Is this something an interface change could solve or is that kind of adjustment unavailable at the blockchain level?
Thanks again for all the work on this and ChainBB.

52

I downloaded the mac version, and added in my account, but I can't see the + sign in the SP delegation tab, all I could see was the garbage bin.

Is there a minimal limit of SP to the account before they are allowed to delegate SP?
Please tell me what to do, as I would really want to help my community by delegating some of my SP, thank you

Hello @jesta - nothing critical.
Installed Vessel w/o problem on OSX.
All working as designed, except the savings are not displayed.
Although there are only 0.777 SBD in my savings, it does display 0.000 SBD.

Otherwise - love the clear design and straight forward functionality.
A shoutout to @ausbit for pointing me to Vessel.
