How to Launch a Steem Power Backed Smart Media Token!

in steem •  4 months ago
  • What if every time we upvoted on Steem, we got an upvote back for the same amount regardless of whether we posted 10 times a day or once a month? With Steem Power (SP) backed Smart Media Token (SMT) communities abbreviated SPSMT, we are now able to multiply our voting power 10x every day where 1,000 SP/SMT = 10,000 SP upvote every day or one 70,000 SP upvote a week or one 280,000 SP upvote a month! New to SMT? Take a look at https://smt.steem.io/. As members of larger collective voting communities, we now can leverage our full voting power which provides motivation for authors to focus on quality instead of quantity and to become investors in Steem and SMT instead of bidders on bots.
  • When we release a Smart Media Token or SMT, how do we back it with a proven asset to help it launch and increase value over time? We give our new SMT immediate value by powering up a percentage of the Steem received during the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) and using that SP to upvote posts based on the percentage of the SMT held. Note that regulations in the USA are heavy for an ICO which is why I have chosen not to release my own SMT following this system after initially thinking I was.
  • How much will the value of Steem rise as new SMT ICOs power up a percentage of Steem received to give the token immediate value to members? Over the next year, imagine how much Steem will flow into SPSMT and get powered up instead of going straight back onto exchanges. Even a small percentage of total will make a huge difference in the supply and demand ratio providing the perfect opportunity for an epic price pump.
  • Why will bids to voting bots drop and start flowing instead into powered up collective voting accounts giving all members flexibility and simplicity in earning and helping each other?

Unbeatable Returns for Authors and Investors!


1,000 Steem worth of a SPSMT or 1,000 SP delegated to a community account following the protocol explained here now can return an upvote effectively worth 10,000 Steem power every day or 70,000 Steem power a week or 280,000 Steem power a month to everyone contributing depending on the settings chosen by the SMT creator and how much is given by each member! The actual amount given back depends on what each SPSMT community chooses to provide with the best giving 100% back and only keeping the curation rewards for the development team!

Rewarding and Promoting Quality Posts!


Our goal with this system is to make is easy for anyone joining Steem to get rewarded for buying Steem and creating quality content! We hope this will greatly increase the quality of posts we find on https://steemit.com, https://busy.org, etc. The easier we make it for each of us to simply show up, contribute, and take home our share of rewards, the higher our user retention will be and the more new users we will continue to get. Up until now, getting started and growing on Steem has been extremely challenging.

For those that do make it into having enough followers and upvotes to make Steem a priority, giving back becomes more challenging than getting started. With lots of SP, followers, and/or upvotes on each post, how does one even attempt to give back without feeling like it was not good enough because the day was not long enough to read every quality post and calculate the ideal upvote?

Increasing Active Users on Steem!


User retention is currently low on Steem because most of us join Steem with a lot of excitement, post a few times, and then get almost nothing in earnings, followers, or comments leaving us disappointed. Meanwhile, a few of us join and immediately get more than we can handle only to steadily watch the initial euphoria turn into apathy as those happy to see us arrive go onto welcoming others or stop voting us as soon as one of our posts is disagreeable. A few of us buy Steem and try to get ahead faster with powering up, voting bots, and/or joining communities only to end up struggling to even earn enough to justify not powering down and selling. After all that, many of us making it that far then run into heavy downvotes and decide all this was not worth it to begin with.

Unified Curation and Publishing!


Everything we do getting started and grow on Steem tends to leave most of us feeling like we are not earning enough while unsure of how to best help others. While we have many outstanding curation projects, which of these make it simple for everyone to participate with flexibility in the level of investment without having a low maximum earning potential, difficult membership requirements, and/or a long list of rules?

Is it possible for us to build a system that allows any of us to maximize how much we give to others and how much we get back on our own posts without requiring a lot of what it currently takes to succeed from the list below?

How to Earn on Steem Individually?


  • Read thousands of posts and get to know hundreds of authors.
  • Write hundreds of posts and comments where we awkwardly try to build new relationships mostly unsuccessfully.
  • Join a laundry list full of discord servers we end up mostly not reading or getting banned from when we participate too much.
  • Buy votes on voting bots or exchange votes with other users.
  • Beg for upvotes from whales.
  • Make 10 posts a day and vote ourselves.
  • Follow a bunch of rules or meet high membership requirements to join a few of the autovote curation communities.
  • Delegate to bid bots to get automatic payouts every day while losing our most valuable asset in our voting power and ability to upvote others.

Stronger Together with Systematic Collaboration!


Imagine using Steem while knowing that when we voted ten people every day, we would always get that vote back with the same power from all ten people! Picture the flexibility to post just once a week or even once a month while upvoting hundreds of people and then having all those people vote our post back. Think of doing all this automatically with just a one time delegation or SPSMT purchase indefinitely. For those of us that love to see the numbers, watch this!

Earning on Steem Simplified!


1,000 Steem power = 10,000 Equivalent Steem Power in votes a day = 70,000 SP a week = ~280,000 SP a month.

This means that having 1,000 Steem power when all votes are made is equal to 1 vote a day from 10,000 Steem power, 1 vote a week from 70,000 Steem power, or one vote a month from ~280,000 Steem power. When we pool our voting power, we then have the flexibility to essentially drop our entire voting power everyone's posts all day every day and then get that much back on our posts based on the frequency we use the collective voting power.

To summarize in a weekly voting example, when 70 of us with 1,000 Steem power come together in one collective voting pool, we can each get one vote a week on a post from 70,000 Steem power indefinitely! This post shares a system for making this a reality starting today!

Incentives for SMT ICOs to Power Up Steem?


Initial Coin Offerings or ICOs generally are a total leap of faith requiring everyone wanting to get the new token to give away cryptocurrency with proven value in exchange for something that might someday be valuable. On Steem we will soon have the ability to launch our own cryptocurrency on Steem via SMTs which leaves us with the same challenge every new cryptocurrency has upon launching in trying to establish value. Fortunately, Steem gives us the unique ability to earn rewards by powering up our Steem and making votes on posts which then gives us a percentage of the new Steem/SBD created based on how much Steem we powered up. This makes holding Steem power valuable for the potential earnings and ability to effectively promote posts with an upvote.

Imagine a new SMT that powers up most of the Steem received from the initial sale into a community account to upvote posts of all those holding the SMT! The SMT now is backed by a proven asset and has a guaranteed method to give back to everyone holding the token via upvotes on Steem. When a SMT powers up a percentage of Steem received from the ICO, we have a cryptocurrency with value we can see just by checking the wallet's voting power! Everyone holding now has a big incentive to earn more when the amount of voting power available is tied to the amount of the SMT held which is likely to create a strong buying demand.

Combining SMT with Delegation!


Our limitation with this system so far is the ability to get started. Who wants to be the first buyer on a new SMT with no voting power? How do we get the initial Steem power to have a vote big enough that will enable this system to run? The answer is delegation!

When we combine the ability to delegate Steem power and get a return with the release of a SMT, we open participation to everyone with SP that might be interested in the voting benefits but might not want to power down to buy the token. To attract delegations, we offer the same voting benefits that those buying the SMT get without the need to actually give us any Steem! For investors seeking to earn passive income by delegating instead of getting upvotes, we offer to give interest based on the Steem power delegated paid in the SMT!

Buy or Delegate?


  1. Buy the token for the highest investment, return, and community participation. Ideal for most enthusiastic and committed community members, new authors, replacing bids to voting bots, and buying new Steem. I am not creating a SMT because of the regulations in the USA I would be subject to for creating it.
  2. Delegate to gain the voting benefits and/or receive a portion relative to the delegation in interest INDEFINITELY! Ideal for already powered up Steem, established authors hoping to increase earnings without buying any more Steem, and passive income for investors.

Immediate Rewards!


  1. Buying some SPSMT may immediately provide access to the voting benefits allowing for a full month worth of upvotes upfront if desired!
  2. Delegations will need to build credit towards the desired frequency and be limited by the voting power contributed instead of the total voting power available because of the ability to remove the delegation
  3. Instead of using voting bots, additional purchases consistently can continually increase the voting power over time and be used to vote less frequently.

Scale with Automation!


Ideally running this system is done in communities where everything happens immediately based on user input using calculations based on the token and/or delegations combined with the voting power of the community account. While any of us launching prior to SMT release will need to do at least some of the voting manually, with the release of SMT ideally the concept will be done with automation.

How to Buy and Accept Delegations!


  1. SMT purchase and holding account: For security and accounting, we recommend using at least two separate accounts to handle all of the purchases and delegations. Using one account only for SMT buys and powering up the SP is ideal to maintain a community account starting from zero absent of any personal funds. This account then does not need to use any applications making it most secure for keeping the private keys exclusively for transferring funds for the SMT buy.
  2. Community voting account(s): For upvoting, another account or several accounts might receive the delegations from the SMT purchase account allowing for all the earnings from the collective contributions to be powered down separately and used for the development team. The community voting accounts would often need to use apps to vote and might need multiple users to manage the total voting power especially in larger communities. Multiple accounts can be created with delegations split for best security or one central account can handle everything while sharing the posting key or being managed just by one person for branding.
  3. When SMT are available, another account outside of the buy/sell and voting accounts might create the SMT for highest security or it might need to be a voting account depending on how the bandwidth is handled.

Community Rules!


While the basic idea of powering up Steem received for a SMT will likely be the same for many communities, each SMT creator maintains the ability to choose how the SMT will function from interest to percentages of author rewards, powering down, downvoting, and any other settings we are able to choose on a SMT. In addition to settings in the SMT, every community can choose which users on Steem can participate.

Launch + Build!


Each SPSMT community is likely to want its own place for members to connect directly on the blockchain on a user interface outside of steemit.com. While using discord is easy, would not we all benefit the most from getting all of the chat there on the blockchain and indexable by search engines to help our conversations be found by others?

SPSMT Successes = Convincing SMT Case Studies!


For any outside company and community interested in adopting a SMT to fundraise and leap forward to a business model that rewards the participants more effectively than display ads, our SPSMT are positioned perfectly to highlight the opportunities available on Steem. Just one SPSMT community building up millions of dollars in value and launching its own successful user interface for the Steem blockchain makes an outstanding case study for every content company patiently watching what happens on Steem and deciding whether to give it a try.

As an example, maybe Bloomberg is keeping an eye on Steem after the interview with @ned. In seeing several successful SPSMT launches, the executives at Bloomberg are convinced that if a few entrepreneurs on Steem can build new tokens worth millions of dollars from scratch, Bloomberg can certainly launch one worth hundreds of millions of dollars. With Bloomberg seeing the success of the SPSMT, the Bloomberg SMT is launched with a SP backing maybe at 20%. When the new Bloomberg Coin brings in $100 million from the ICO and powers up $20 million of it, we can take a guess to what that will mean to the value of Steem.

Stronger Together!


Our purpose in founding this community is to be stronger together! Ultimately Steem brings us and the world value when it helps us connect and be available for our family, friends, and communities. Together we find it easy to experience that value every day. Together we are making sure every single person on this earth has a place to share and get back the value created with that voice to the point of not needing to work any undesirable jobs just to make money!

·

Nice comment, at least you express yourself pretty well... @berniesanders I still don't understand why you hate Jerry so much?

·
·

He actually doesn't hate Jerry. He just fears anyone that can rise in power that competes with him.

·

@berniesanders and @jerrybanfield can I have both of your opinions on how this helps the little guys with maybe only a couple of Steem to invest ? Surely this model is reliant on constant and increasing investments to maintain the promised payouts and thus becomes unsustainable aka ponzi ? Why is this just another way for those with the most to increase their profits exponetially meaning that as always, the rich become richer and the more lowly amongst us continue walking through glue.
Please put some numbers to it for the not so bright like me, please. You talk about 1000Steem but that's a king's ransom to Philipino student, so let's say someone has 2 Steem to invest and buys 2 JBCs....how much a month in Steem will they see in their account if they write one post a day ? KISS ;-)
PS are you intending that one day, JBCs become a tradable currency ? Which would would add another unknown factor into proceedings..

PPS Not everyone has an IQ of Einstein so there any way this could all be made more simple please? There is a correlation between wealth and IQ and just because not everyone can understand complex principles shouldn't mean they miss out.

PPPS Im torn between wanting people to make money to improve their lives by any means necessary and wanting growth to be achieved organically and by engagement and eyes on and comments....there has to be a middle ground somewhere.

·
·

It doesn't. It sure helps Jerry a lot though.

Surely this model is reliant on constant and increasing investments to maintain the promised payouts and thus becomes unsustainable aka ponzi

No, he's not doing anything except collectivizing self-voting. Imagine ten users get together and each of them can post once per day. If they put all of their SP in the same account, that account can upvote all their posts and use all its voting power to do so.

That's essentially all Jerry's doing on a larger scale, except that if the ten users set up their own account to do it they would have account ownership and get that account's SP growth, curation rewards, and witness vote. In Jerry's system he gets all of that. He also gets ownership of the SP; I don't know if people are going to have the right to withdraw or not, there's too much doublespeak here.

@jerrybanfield
I see that you are always very optimistic about steemit...I am unfortunately not so optimistic. Steemit has a big problem, the bad distribution of wealth (few have much and many have little). we have equated steemit with the distribution of wealth in the real world.


Recently the account number 1 million was created...but only 60,000 are really active...How is it understood that a platform as spectacular as Steemit only 6% is active? and of those 60,000 How many share quality content? ... How many people make projects for the growth of the platform? and even worse, the most powerful only limit themselves to the nothing ethical sale of votes

if we want steemit to grow we have to solve that bad distribution. we must finish with that sale because it generates an even worse distribution
and if the powerful do not want to give the purpose for which they created the platform that is to share quality publications and create projects for their growth that they begin to delegate their SP to different communities and within them to those that work correctly without abusing the blockchain and so the wealth will be distributed better and more people will be able to reward quality. Otherwise people will continue to leave steemit for not seeing future.
If this continues, the future of steemit is very doubtful and the value of the currency will decrease due to lack of confidence. and the powerful will continue to have all their millions but they will be millions of nothing

Before you read, I'm giving away $80 here: https://d.tube/#!/v/halfjew22/zcjg6avu

I'm attempting to create a protocol through which I both gain followers as well as help out followers who care enough to pay attention and read / watch / listen to my content. The whole process is going to be completely open and transparent. I want to earn money doing what I love. But I also want to make it so that it is easy for other people to do what they love so long as their content is at least pretty good.

This is my first video in a long series of videos where I will detail out my plan as well as give away a bunch of cash for people that are paying attention. If you are frustrated by what appears to be essentially a collective self voting bot where you don't really benefit, please check out my idea. If you think it's garbage, REPLY IN MY FEEDBACK VIDEO WITH YOUR CRITICAL FEEDBACK, we'll have everyone rank the ideas, and I'll respond and fix the idea to address the feedback.

One of the key problems with content nowadays is the 1-directionality. It just doesn't work. We almost are coming to a place of collective discussion, but with scams like JBC, that's never going to happen.

I apologize in advance for spamming this, but I'm so sick of huge content creators alleging to help the little guys while the platform still suffers. I don't think a coin is going to help anyone.

I think we need to develop new open source protocols that we can share and build upon together. Please head over to any of my channels and listen to these ideas. I think they're good enough that I'll literally pay you to listen.

Thanks in advance,
Michael

No offense, I'm interested in any new methodology for doing those things but I'm not going to spend a half an hour listing to you talk about it. Feel free to poke me when you have a text description.

Actually, were you talking about the methodology in general or how to win the cash?

And if the video was, say, 3 minutes or less to describe the methodology, would you listen?

The methodology, I don't really care about the cash.

I might watch a shorter video, but if I'm going to analyze it I'd really prefer text.

The chance TO believe or not would be nice, I can't get my head around all this and can't decide whether that is deliberate just so people use their trust in Jerry's name to send him their hard earned Steem! Too confusing!! Good thing I'm not a cynic!
Anyway, I'm being rude. Good morning @Whatsup and thank you :-)

I don't understand what he is saying either. I also wonder if he understands it.

He is saying that if you give him a chicken, he will breed that chicken to lay 100 eggs and those 100 eggs will hatch into 100 chickens, they will lay 10,000 eggs, they will hatch into 10,000 chicken and they in turn will lay 100,000,000 and he will make a omelette of all those eggs and feed the entire steem community.

but Im a vegan, how will that help me ?
but in all seriousness, your analogy fails as there is only a finite number of Steem....hence the my use of the word Ponzi

That's why he will have to make an omelette before only chickens are crawling the whole earth.

This analogy holds no water in this case. Everything screams ponzi!!

It is a ponzi. Chicken doesn't lay 100 eggs.

Ponzi scheme works. Bitcoin itself is the biggest Ponzi in history, but it works. The only thing questionable here is the author himself. How likely it is that Jerry will deliver his Ponzi.

every 1,000 JBC will be good for an upvote on about 10,000 Steem power a day

For 1000 STEEM (if $2.5/STEEM= $2500) you can get an upvote worth $1.37 (based on estimation of a 10,000 SP vote on steemworld).

Jerry is using buzzwords to obfuscate how much of a shit investment this is. In his characteristically banter-filled posts, his poor writing makes it appear at first a promise of 10x your investment.

In reality it would take 1,824 days (earning a vote of $1.37 a day) to get a return on your 1000 STEEM.

Jerry's proposal comes off as a ponzi scheme to enrich himself on his cult coin. @berniesanders, or someone, anyone, running this horrid machine, please explain how this shit being front page helps build steemit?

This is how EOS will destroy this platform. Because it was weakened, petrified, before the fight even started.

Any idiot who buys into this shit deserves to lose their money.

·
·

A very entertaining implication of this is that if people do buy into the system, it could easily be more profitable to put the 1000 SP in your own account and frontrun its votes for curation value than it will be to buy in yourself.

Of course there are hundreds of ways to do better with 1000 Steem, but that one's really funny.

·
·
·

People get wet by the idea of passive income streams. The dream of doing less.... Just lay back and have all the money keep rolling in forever... Haha

·

jerry will you please lmao hahaha, thats what he says in his videos, you got it right.

·

It's almost like he has you on mute. That's odd.

·
·

Was thinking the same

·

Yeah man I must finally agree with you here, wow, what the hell is Jerry talking about?

"1,000 Steem worth of a SPSMT or 1,000 SP delegated to a community account following the protocol explained here now can return an upvote effectively worth 10,000 Steem power every day or 70,000 Steem power a week or 280,000 Steem power a month to everyone contributing depending on the settings chosen by the SMT creator and how much is given by each member! "

Jerry doesn't get how Steempower works he thinks 1000 SP of his own SMT can get you 10,000 Sp a day?

·
·

1000 SP voting ten times (daily voting power) is the same as 10,000 SP voting once. Jerry's way of putting this is nonstandard and possibly a little deceptive, but it's not wrong.

·
·

When I read it, I didn't understand it. It sounded like hyperinflation to me.

·
·
·

You don't need to be wrong before deceiving people.

·
·
·

Not sure of how it will all work but I think in essence it's about pooling your votes so that you don't have to vote 10 x per day to get max benefit. If you post once per week you can in effect "save up" a weeks worth of voting power as if you were voting on your one post every day (which you can't do).

·

I just want a person that isn't currently running a bid-bot with their name on it proposing solutions to end use of bid-bots. Even better would be if the OP disabled his own bot before making posts like this. I usually stay out of these conversations, because I'm a steemit grain of sand compared to the voices here but reading self serving "solutions" will force me use the bid bots to self promote more before one of these "solutions" catch on and I'm robbed of one of the last effective ways to promote myself. I'm losing money doing so as well from what I am told. So please, can I lose my own money in peace? I have no chance with the low quality level content I am able to share. Just my 0.02

·

LMAO! Yo mad bruh?😂👌

No more updates regarding Jerry's supposed initiative of launching a Steem peer-to-peer market funded by ripping off bid votes buyers who were using his account. I guess I've figured this out already. Jerry is an accomplished con artist who has mastered the rules of the game. His tactics of mass exploitation is classic in my book. Wonder if he's indeed a mentalist or NLP practitioner. He's a genius in mass manipulation.

Hay bro i upvote ur comment please upvote may post im new user tahnks

What in the actual fuck is this load of bullshit? Have you not schemed and scammed enough from users? Now you want their actual STEEM in addition to delegation? Why? For witness voting?

You are a fucking piece of shit and it's a complete embarrassment that this post is currently sitting at over $1000 instead of being downvoted to $0 for providing nothing at all of value, except as a place for some of us to once again tell you that you're a waste of perfectly good oxygen.

The fact that you can continuously post this absolute dog shit and earn thousands of dollars per week is a testament to how worthless our whales and witnesses have become on this platform.

The fact that you can be anywhere near the top-20 as a witness is a testament to how worthless our whales and witnesses have become on this platform.

The fact that you're able to get any delegation or grants of STEEM/SBDs for the absolute bullshit that you try to sell here is a testament to how stupid and worthless much of the user base is.

What a fucking joke this place is...to have your stupid face at the top of the trending page selling yet another scam disguised as "helping the community."

Idiots. All of you. Every single person who gives him even 0.001 STEEM or SBD. Every single person who leaves a comment that doesn't tell Jerry to go fuck himself. Every single person who doesn't downvote these posts of his.

Go ahead and keep telling yourself that STEEM will moon any day now, while you're completely oblivious to the fact that the rest of the crypto world thinks you're a bunch of fucking morons.

Well, sorry, but not sorry... they're right.

[EDIT] - Upvoted for mother fuckin' visibility because you dickless wonders around here need to read it. And because the ass-kissers shouldn't be the ones at the top of any thread.

awesome reply... why don't you lead the charge? We will be behind you (I'd be beside you if I had been here longer).... Sadly we are lacking leaders to do something about exactly this.

I read it, replied to it... And will support you because you "get it". I know I am not the kind of support you need (ie small), but the good thing is even small guys get to use their lungs every so often!.

You'd be surprised at how motivated we could be if we found people that are focused on the real problems!

ps... I appreciate your point that you "try". Honestly I respect that you even do that! Thank you!

·

i am still waiting on information on how the smart media contracts work on the back end. I hae yet to see any code on the SMT project on github.

please direct me to where they have shown any progress on the implementation of SMT.

IVe been seeing mad "creators" claiming that they will create an SMT ON a SYSTEM that does not exist!

@jerrybanfield you are about as bad as Trevon James and his Trevon james coin.

I dont trust you or your endeavors and i dont see why anyone should.

SMT isn't even ready (and might take a while) and people are already trying to sell the bear's skin before killing it.

My thoughts exactly. Steemit has been disappointing as of lately

·

Abso-fuckin-lutely.

·

Fucking preach on. Hell yes

·

Well said.

Looks like a whole lot of bullshit to me from someone who's only known for one opportunistic scam after another. Just off the top of my head, @jerrybanfield you had the stolen Steemfest, the $50 accounts, the crap info videos and courses (all with incorrect information pulled out of some random cat's ass), your site which charges people to message you, and now this.

I hear there's something called EOS where block producers make millions. Go check it out Jerry, it'll need 100% of your attention.

·
·

Don't forget the "peer-to-peer exchange" that he promoted at one point and tried to scam everyone for donations to create it.

I'm sure there are a lot more that I missed, since I do my best to not look at this stupid fuck and his shit content.

Voting pool is great idea Jerry. Many are here to upvote their own post but with the use of the SPSMT platform we can now produce a more valuable blog post. I am not sure on the necessity of the new ICO coin. Because I am not seeing myself sacrificing my beloved Steem token to any other crypto. Delegating to the platform is I think more valuable. I hope in the next Steem hard fork 20, we can customized more of our upvotes and can use more power so we are now focusing on producing good content rather than quantity post.

Damn dude, this sounds crazy! You have to be very creative and visionary to come up with all this. I give you props and wish you the best on this venture! Resteem

·

Brett thank you for the resteem! This idea came out of nowhere our of despair at the current state of Steem as a way to help us more effectively work together and add value here. I am grateful for the chance to share it!

·
·

Thanks @jerrybanfield! I’m am interested in giving the delegation a try. I’ve started to wrap my head around it and I think it’s pretty genius! Am I correct in reading that 1000 SP is the minimum delegation? Can I direct the daily vote to random accounts or are all votes limited to the delegating account? I’d be interested to get started next week for some content I’ll be publishing. Thanks for the feedback and the initiative!

I promised to read this post I read 10% and now my wife is calling me and the baby is crying.
questions:
Can I contribute to the community in a meaningful way by participating in this project?
Can this concept help other contributors not rely so heavily on bit bots to make profit on quality content posts?
Last but not least can this project help me to live my dream and become financially independent?

·

Did you get $1.62 for reading 10%? You'll be getting a really good payout when you finish it.

This is bullshit. I read 100% of your comment and I only got.05

That is nothing. I am 75% sure that I am the reason his wife was calling him to put him on 3 way speaker phone to let him hear me knock the bottom out of it and I only got paid in STD's

Yes to all of these! Every question you asked is along the lines of what I was thinking when I wrote this post! When you buy 50 Steem of JBC you will immediately be able to get upvotes once a month indefinitely on 14,000+ Steem power. With this just being released, the votes will actually be even bigger to begin because the voting power is high and to reward the very first to purchase!

·
·

Hello! for what i see JBC is a way to make sure you have enough upvotes to earn more, but my question is, will it really help the users to create better quality media?
cheers!

I like the idea. I am still considering to invest or not. If you can build a web like Smartsteem.com, it would be really helpful for us to make a decision.

·

Agreed and that is the plan!

I'm sure this has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that finding a way to load your account up with native SP instead of delegation will vastly increase the power of your witness vote.

Nor with the fact that you just fell out of the top 20.

Those clearly are completely irrelevant.

·

hahahahahah Poly for the yugular!

I like that you are improving Steemit, and the voting system. You spelled out correctly the people who get frustrated on Steemit, and the obstacles we face while on here. I see a flaw in this JBC or maybe I just don't understand it...

For example, buying 1000 Steem today of JBC will immediately unlock the ability to request an upvote on up to 280,000+ SP each month or a percentage smaller based on the desired frequency and total voting power.

What gives this JBC any value if I send Steem to it? And I get this big upvote a week, well you aren't guaranteeing it. What if you use up all of the voting power?

There has to be a catch here. The money has to come from somewhere...Maybe I'm just not understanding it.

·

@jfitmisc what gives any SMT using this system value is the voting power from powering up the Steem received similar to a gold standard. Delegating instead of buying can be an effective way to give it a test while buying has the highest earning potential. The results depend on which people run the SMT and the voting power always regenerates. Naturally with abuse a token like this would become worthless. Abusing voting power on a SPSMT could ruin the value which would cost much more than the potential earnings from doing so providing for strong motivation to take good care of the Steem and delegations.

·
·

you know this will be abused how do you intend on thwarting that?

·
·
·

@masterroshi abuse is subjective. One person's idea of abuse is another's idea of innovation. Equality means not defining abuse.

·
·
·
·

Yes let's hope the innovation is responsible and not at the expense of other users

·
·
·

@masterroshi we will trust each of our members to behave responsibility and engage with those finding problems!

·
·

Thanks for the quick reply and explanation! Okay that makes sense. You have to handle the voting with integrity and caution. I probably would feel comfortable with delegating first! I think this is a really great idea to reward good quality content like you said, and we won't have to resort to using bid bots.

I'm ready for Steemit to go really mainstream! I have two real life friends join Steemit. One was extremely turned away after failure. Thanks @jerrybanfield for all you do to improve this community :)

·
·
·

My pleasure and I appreciate the chance to build it here together!

·

Hey @jerrybanfield Amazing Post

This sounds really cool, but I must confess to a bit of confusion 🙂 When is the SMT launching and how does that cutoff date affect how those of us who delegate (say 1k SP) receive upvotes? Are we given upvotes on Steemit like normal platform upvotes until the SMT launches and then given JBC upvotes afterwards? I'm unclear why I should start my delegation now and what happens later.

Another issue for clarity... if we buy we send to @jerrybanfieldroi but if we delegate we do so to @jerrybanfield, correct?

·

@indigoocean thank you for helping me clarify this in the post! The upvotes from the delegation are good indefinitely and I will make that clear in the post!

·
·

Thank you. One other question that just came to me as I consider whether to buy or delegate: what if I want to do a combination of the two? How does that get calculated? Let's say I buy with 50 Steem and delegate another 1000SP... and have an interest in a weekly interval done automatically... how does this get calculated? Or does it need to be one or the other?

·
·
·

For buying and delegating you will get to skip the delegation window! I will add that into the post also! You have the accounts right for each!

·
·
·
·

OK, now I need to re-read this thing, LOL!

·
·
·
·
·

I just added this in for you!

For those combining at least a 50 Steem purchase with delegation, the limits on delegation are removed and payout instantly as long as the JBC holdings are 10% of the delegation. For example, buying 100 Steem worth of JBC and delegating 900 SP will provide the full one month upvote immediately!

·
·
·
·
·

Thank you for being the very first to make a 50 Steem purchase!

I’m confused. I currently have 150 SP delegated to you. That is under the minimum so I should cancel it? Or will I still receive a benefit?

·

I would imagine you could put that SP to much better use rather than delegating to JB. Do some research.

·
·

With the release of this new system beating the return from delegating to me and using the votes will be challenging. While it is certainly possible, doing so likely to require a lot of time and energy to pull off which then must be figured into the return.

·
·

Yeah, probably better off taking advantage of the steem power interest rate. :)

·

Thank you @fow for asking this because reading what you wrote helped me see the minimum will best apply to delegation and buying at 50 Steem power. According to https://steemworld.org/@jerrybanfield you delegated months ago which gives you credit immediately for an upvote up to 42,000 Steem power on a post once a month or 14,000 Steem power three times a month after you submit the form at https://jerry.tips/jbcwelcome

Love the shirt @jerrybanfield ! Wow, this is incredible. The best thing since sliced bread. You are truly a visionary my friend. You just took Steem to a whole 'nother level.

-Ken

·

Ken thank you for helping inspire me to think about what I could contribute that would be most useful for you and for the shirt featured in the photo here!

One of the major reason for lower retention rate in steemit is because return on effort is relatively low for people who don’t have enough funds to invest on voting bots, thereby getting visibility is almost impossible even if the content is of high quality! Unfortunately most of the whales have shifted their account from manual to bid based voting system as that yields them more profit!

This leaves the minnow author with nothing but disappointment! So I hope this new SPSMT token help every author without giving rich people an added advantage!

I have also voted for witness for you! Hope people find this a reason to stay here and grow here together!

Regards ,
@ubfitzone

·

Thank you for adding me to your witness votes and I am so excited about this new system because it gives us the ability to more effectively help each other while focusing on our own investing and quality instead of trying to hustle for the very few upvotes available now.

·

I am shifting to Minds.com, where recognition is better and so is visibility. this platform is greatly dysfunctional and no one listens, so I'm moving.

·
·

The problem with minds.com is that their coin isn't worth anything. It's literally worthless. That's why visibility is easier, you don't even make 1 cent for your efforts so there's fewer people participating.

·
·
·

Being a Minds user for a few years now (although inactive), I second this observation. Not to mention the crappy interface and poorly optimized blogging feature.

·
·
·

Their blogging platform sucks. but what turns me off here is the condo nazis who downvote you and try to tell you what to do. This is a fatal flaw for this platform and no one will pay attention. Steem is getting better, but this flaw will still kill it in the end.

·
·
·
·

What did you get flagged for? In most cases there’s a reason although I have seen people get flagged unfairly on a couple of occasions.

·
·
·
·
·

I was posting large sections out of the law as part of a class I'm conducting. the idiot didn't bother to read enough to find out what is going on. Other people have been flagged unfairly by some condo nazi over a difference of opinion. I'm not going to rehearse this whole thing again. Bottom line is I moved this to my private blog and steem has lost something of great value. No one will listen here, nobody pays attention to what a minnow says. This and the downvote power will be steemit's ultimate doom, mark my words. Minds is not yet up to speed, but there are other FB killers on the horizon and eventually one of them will make it. Sadly, unless steemit changes course it will not be them. Smart media tokens are a great idea, but someone else will get there too. It's sad because this platform is finally building momentum, but this flaw is fatal, mark my words.

sounds very interesting good roi. @jerrybanfields looking at all the mathematics, i can assume sending 10 steem will give me 10000 sp worth of voting per day on one post. Also you have not considered SBD that will allow it to peg back to $1. The limits as mentioned are yet nor cleared to me....is that the user needs to hold or ita need to be transferred.....

Any way it is going to be a revolutionary way to introduce SMT.....resteeming this post....waiting for more 👍

·

@steemflow thank you very much for resteeming! Right now we are only using Steem for buying because the Steem is directly powered up. We can convert SBD to Steem on the market at https://steemit.com/market to make a buy then. With the voting power very nearly full on @jerrybanfield the first people to buy will get some extra votes with the minimum being 50 Steem to get started with the votes immediately.

·
·

50 steem ...That is for 1 post every day....? And what in case if i delegate 50 sp? Will that going to worth...?

When are they coming out mate, I may invest a couple hundred dollars into it! :D

Thank you for the attempt to make something new understandable. I do want to get to my goal the reason I came to steemit in the time alotted by me. One year in and it seems I am not going to make it on my own. Started out poor still poor. Survival is my life.
If I buy your JBC and only invest say 50 steem will that help me in my two year goal.

Will it help steemit in the projection I hope it will.
Let me know please. You are one of my current witnesses.
Love

·

@abbijulie I hope so because the system I provided here is intended to encourage powering up of Steem!

·
·

Will think on it.

hello @jerrybanfield, I think everyone in the Steemit community should be grateful for the concern and dedication of you great influence and vows ... to develop tools that improve every day Steemit, I agree that we should present quality post more not in quantity. But I also think it is necessary for you, the great ones, to sanction in one way or another all those who take advantage of someone's talent, who is starting by promising awards that do not comply. , be it a whale or a little fish, I have realized that it has happened ... I suggest a space for denunciations, to study and enter the powerful, the curators and judges decide the sansión.I believe that this would give much more stability , trust and credibility to the Steemianos.

Steemit has become that great window that allows us to obtain immediate benefits by publishing everything that inspires us. No other social network makes it possible. For years I have shared on networks such as facebook and twitter and never had anything more than a simple "I like", however here in steemit my opinion is valuable.

Smart Media Tokens (SMT) is a technology that is increasingly popular throughout the internet and that offers the possibility of monetizing our publications. I understand that Steemit is one of the first social networks to use this technology and it has been a success. It is relatively easy to get rewards with our original publications and good content. We also win by "upvoting" or "like" the posts of other members within Steemit. It is mutual support that allows growth within the network. We are rewarded and valued.

I didn't do any of that and I've made over 21000 SP.

I won't tell anyone how either because they will not believe that I simply started out as a minnow, produced at least one post per day(I even took time off), grew organically, and ignored every single sales pitch on the trending page like this one of Jerry's.

·

@nonameslefttouse joining earlier made earning from zero much easier. Today it is almost impossible to make decent upvotes starting from zero without doing most of those things on the list. When you joined there were not even a hundred thousand users, no bid bots, and very few posts a day. Today there are over a million users, tons of bid bots, and hundreds of thousands of posts a day. The system we have now simply does not work for new or even most established authors without intense effort and collaboration. Occasionally we may see exceptions and exceptions will not carry us as a platform. Systems making it easy to work together will.

Don't lie to me, Jerry. It was NOT easier to come here and blog for 6 cent STEEM. We had no idea back then if the the value would ever rise. If I earned a dollar on a post, it was worth a dollar and that was that.

The main reason why it's so difficult to earn now for new people is because people like you convince them to delegate away their SP to bots or crazy ideas like this in the post above. That concentrates 1000's of eyes into one paid vote, then these bloggers sit around and wonder why nobody is looking, all while not realizing they paid 1000's of people to look away when they purchase that vote.

You'd think with 1000000 accounts, getting eyes on the work would be easier now, but you folks threw the wrench in the works.

Please don't try to tell me it was easier back in the day though. I came back in December after a five month break and earned 6000-7000 SP since then. Never used a bot, none of that other nonsense. I simply produce a blog some people seem to be interested in. You can see by the amount of comments on previous posts, they're alive and looking. Again, it was not easy at the start and it hasn't been easy lately. Please don't tell me it's been smooth sailing because it hasn't. This took a lot of work. People these days come and look for the shortcuts offered and fail. That's their fault and partially yours for making failure easier to accomplish.

P.S. Your act of purchasing votes pushed another bloggers visibility aside, that trickles all the way down to the bottom. People do not stand a chance to ever grow because of this behavior. I've also flagged this post after making a few discoveries that lead me to believe a lot of people could lose money here with your little plan, while you take their hard earned STEEM. Much of what you wrote here today appears to be directed towards the novice crowd who at times can be a little naive and not realize your post here today is an advertisement disguised as a helpful article. You stand to make money while it seems like they will lose some and it might be a staggering amount if they are not careful. Also, you're attempting to mislead me with this talk of "working together" when it's clear nothing you said here today will help anyone but yourself.

Definitely the right words to say @nonameslefttouse. It's never easy back then and it's never easy up to now.

There are over 1 million accounts Jerry, not 1 million users. It's more likely that there are a few hundred thousand users with a small number of those users holding many accounts.

Very true.

I absolutely believe you did this organically. It is totally possible. Although I don't have as much SP as you, what I do have has been made completely in the last year from posting what I enjoy and curating. It's been bloody hard work but I could have been posting it on a wordpress blog and getting nothing for it at all. I've made a shit-ton of genuine friends on here too. I wonder how many genuine friends Jerry has made from here.

I looked. Followed along as well. You're doing good.

If more people would stop looking for shortcuts that don't work, and simply put in the time and effort, they'll see the same results. As for Jerry's list of bullshit he thinks is what it takes to be successful here; if that's the guidance he offers his following, it's no wonder people fall for his crap.

Write hundreds of posts and comments where we awkwardly try to build new relationships mostly unsuccessfully.

Why would a blogger think writing posts and building a solid following is silly and Jerry's plan is better? This dude does not know what he's talking about, but these people listen to him. A blogger will publish thousands of posts, because that's what bloggers do, and here, we get paid for it. If you buy your money, you don't get paid for it, and that's just common sense.

Keep going man.

I have done exactly the same. I started on Facebook. Made a page and just posted for fun. Now I am here because I would like to see if I can turn what I do into something more. I just post once a day and now I am nearly at 50 reputation. It can be done, it just takes time. There is no shortcuts. Well, maybe money is a shortcut, but even then you will eventually run into people who don't like that you are just taking advantage of the community

The people who will profit the most are the whales and this isnt a secret.
The hardest part for poor people is evem if they make a high quality article it will not be seen by alot of whales which they work in a group.

Those first to buy will find big upvotes ...

When you think about it they deserve more then the people who just joined.
It just isn't fair to that degree of percentage.
