Delegated 54% of my SP to steem-ua & my attempt to be the 500th Delegator

I had read about @steem-ua and had a quick chat with @scipio over the weekend about it but was a little caught up with some work.

However yesterday I was finally free and was getting around to the task of delegating to @steem-ua. I have only around 463 SP so when I went to go through the various SP delegations that they were picking up, the 250 SP option seemed to be the best thought that meant giving away about 54% of my native SP.

I did not mind this as I believe in the ideas behind this and it was about time we had something like this come up on Steemit that can actually better the whole existing stuff that we have here.

When I was at their discord page @scipio was announcing that 480 delegations have come in. My initial response was to count it as 481 as I was just about to.

But then I paused.....

What If....

What If I wait instead and try be the 500th Delegator. Would that be special? Their 500th milestone being my delegation. @scipio responded saying he loved all his delegators equally but I did tell him that I insisted on it. I just wanted to be and there was no turning around now.

This was at 6.37 PM IST.

He gave me the link to check the current count of delegators and I set to it. Refreshing the page every now then. As always, my luck being bad, this was moving really slow.

I did not give up!

In fact at one point @scipio came in to check if I am still sitting around refreshing the page and I said yes :) This was three hours later at 9.54 PM IST.

6 Hours and 30 mins later...... At 1.00 AM IST

Delegator count was at 498 and I had to finally give in. If I stayed up any more I would get lesser than 4 hrs sleep and resigned to being the 499th delegator to @steem-ua.

@bashadow turned out to be 500th delegator as per this DM from @scipio that broke my heart & that too being only 7 minutes behind me..

So children, let that be the moral lesson of never ever giving up!! Haha..

I am not going into details of why @steem-ua is awesome and why we need to delegate as there are better qualified people who have already wrote about it but you guys, JUST DO IT!

As of the time of posting this, there are 557 delegators with a combined SP of 349,379.12.

That's something eh?

Haha yes quite an adventure!

As a follower of @followforupvotes this post has been randomly selected and upvoted! Enjoy your upvote and have a great day!

So I'll take some time and know all there is about @steem-ua and when I'm ready, I hope to follow the footsteps of the first 500 delegators.....wish me luck

·

I hope you do it very soon. Seeing as you are new, do build up some SP soon by posting great content!

Pls permit me to ask if there is any advantage to this stuff, I mean what you derived from it.

·

Well, they do offer you 7 upvotes a week for 250 SP delegation but more than that it's about supporting an idea that can be a game changer in whichever way you can.

So do delegate, how much ever you can:)

Hahah.....when you be desperate for something it may not comento you so easily. Dont be sad and chill you have delegated enough to make @steem-ua trending everywhere

Haha better luck next time!! Regardless, I'm sure @steem-ua is thankful for the delegation.

·

Like @scipio was saying, I just hope that people don't get inspired from this that when the delegator count reaches 980+ people refrain from delegating, attempting to be the 1000th :P

I just did my first (of hopefully many) delegations to @steem-ua too!

·

Awesome! Were you the 500th?? Haha ..

·
·

Oh I don't know... lol

Nice try though you almost made it.

·

Yes, I was almost there :)

I am so sorry @mydivathings, I was gifted 50SP by @tarazkp to try out @steem-ua . I had no Idea that there were that many people donating, nor that I was even close to being number 500.

edited to fix the name mix-up

·

Not me, Taraz.

·
·

I knew that, I hate when I do that. To bad thats is not a name bot does not say hey you didn't mean him you meant @tarazkp

·

Ah, so I meet my arch nemesis! Buhahahaha!
Just kidding, that was such a cool thing to do by @tcpolymath! Have fun :)

·
·

I had a brain fart, @tcpolymath does the Dolphin building project, @tarazkp is trying to get people to engage and post, so his way of helping build a dolphin class of steemians. And sometimes my brain just does not work well.

·

I was hoping one of mine would be the 500th 😄

Sorry @mydivathings

May be i want to Delegate also @mydivathings

·

Go ahead! Do it now :)

Excellent. Upvoted
