Steem News, Reviews and Gossip #1

in steem •  3 months ago


Hi Everyone,

It's about time I started creating more video content for STEEM, after all, in my normal job I create video content very often. And with the kids going back to school next week, I am better able to make videos on the fly.

The aim of the videos is to help you along with steemit. I will search for news, apps, games, gossip and anything steemit related that I think will add value to you and make your time on steemit more enjoyable and more efficient.

First up today is Steem User Authority. @steem-ua is a alternative reputation score to the one currently available. To find out more about it do check out their intro post

https://steemit.com/ua/@steem-ua/introducing-userauthority-ua-steem-ua-and-ua-api

and you can also visit their website https://steem-ua.com to find out your own UA score.

Next up is an initiative to allow people quickly convert SBD and STEEM to fiat and straight to your paypal account. @steemexchanger is the account to keep an eye on and if you want to use their services then head over to https://mysteemx.com/

Finally I found a game of Snake created on the steem blockchain which rewards you with upvotes based on your score. This game has been created by @fbslo and you can check out the game here
https://fbslo.net/steemsnake/

So that’s it for this weeks video – See ya next week

UA is a big topic, a good one to start the video series.

I've just spent some time reading the comments on that post, worth a look for sure.

If the focus here is community and content, I think UA may well need further tweaks - engagement isn't really factored all...

·

we need EA - Engagement Authority :-) Its in the game lol

·
·

Sounds interesting! :D

·
·

That EA reference though, makes me think we'll have to pay for that Engagement Authority as a DLC

·
·
·

Poor choice of reference by me so, i was not suggesting a in app purchase :-)

·

Want to buy witness follows ;)

·
·

I think it would work better if the witness follows you :)

Seems to be a 'reasonable' weight given to witnesses don't you think?

·
·
·

Indeed I guess we all have to start our own witness now. We will have W4WF (witness for witness follow) instead of f4f lol.

It’s an interesting idea. I just don’t know how much man power they are going have to keep up with all the manual input. Even if they create a form to try and automate that. Verification will still be manual in regards to checking what communities people run and other projects.

·
·

haha as a witness I wont buy witness votes, dont think i will be buying follows either :-) Maybe I should sell some seems I have a rather good score lol

·
·
·

That is my fear. Want to fix your UA score? just send me 2 SBD for a 30 day follow.

The day the platform rents out follows is going be a very cold day.

human nature, people will exploit the system if they can. I dont know the algorithm, so I dont know if it could be exploited that easy. I would like to think that it would be a little more complicated than that

·

Stuff UA, Snake on the blockchain, now that's news!

·
·

Snake in a blazer on the blockchain?

·
·
·

No actual snake, although it wants me submit my posting key to 'get paid' think I'll wait awhile and let other people test whether it's a scam or not!

·
·
·
·

I tested it with an alt account
it will post a comment, not a post, and the upvotes, well the account has very little sp right now so it needs to grow first

·
·
·
·
·

OK - thanks - it's an interesting development: I guess having your gaming scores locked into a block chain is a useful way of proving something. Kind of makes sense this one.

·
·
·

Or virtual snake, rather than actual. The way games should be. Reminds me I must sell my @steemmonsters cards before the whole thing goes crytpokitties.

·
·
·

lol did you not watch all the video @abh12345

To me, UA is really one of the coolest things I missed on my away time... it needs some extra thought, but it has the power to become a really great metric... much like PA and DA on SEO.

·

I think..but could be wrong DA was part of the original theory
