[QUESTION] What is the formula for curation and author rewards?

in #steem4 years ago

I understand the basic structure of the rewards, but I'd like details. Is there documentation out there for how the current implementation works?

I'm hoping to build a simulator to check for perverse incentives, and it's no good if I'm simulating the wrong formula.


I think it's in section The Math.


thanks for posting! Curious if your simulator works!

Oh wow, this post is old. How did you find it? I never ended up creating the simulator because I got distracted by a bunch of other more valuable projects like my voting bots.

@biophil i am a little confused about author rewards. it says everywhere that the author rewards are 50% SBD and 50% SP ( if the default option was selected while posting articles ) yet all the author rewards i see are like 5.887 SBD, and 0.951 STEEM POWER or 11 SBD, and 1.7 STEEM POWER that does not look like 50% distribution

I don't know about documentation -- you could check the recent version of the whitepaper here https://steem.io/SteemWhitePaper.pdf

The 50% split is pretty confusing right now because SBD is trading very high; my article here explains a little: https://steemit.com/sbd/@biophil/go-home-sbd-you-re-drunk-how-to-maximize-your-author-rewards
