SBD Conversions Are Profitable Again! 10-15% Every 3.5 days!steemCreated with Sketch.

in #steemlast year (edited)

A while back I made a Dtube video on how one can easily make up to 15% every 3.5 days by doing a blockchain conversion of their SBD into STEEM but a week after that wasn't the case anymore as the haircut rule kicked in making the conversion less profitable. With the rise in price of STEEM, the debt ration of our blockchain reduced to a point where the haircut rule doesn't apply anymore, making initiating a blockchain conversion hard to resist.

As you can see from the example of one such conversion 10 000 SBD converted into 29 159 STEEM while on the internal market the same amount of SBD would only return 25k STEEM.

Selling that STEEM back to SBD again will result in a pretty nice profit of 1564 SBD or somewhere around 14%!


That's a decent profit for doing absolutely no freakin' work at all. All you need to do to get in on the gains is to initiate a blockchain conversion of your SBD to STEEM. The conversion will take 3.5 days to destroy your SBD, remove it out of circulation, increase the price of SBD and return STEEM which you then simply convert back to SBD in the internal market and start the process all over again!

10-15% every 3.5 days sounds a bit like Bitconnect but that's just how our blockchain works. SBD has a safetynet of always (except for when the haircut applies) being worth 1$ worth of STEEM, even if its price on external exchanges is way less than 1$.

If the price of STEEM doesn't tank and the haircut rule doesn't apply back again every SBD conversion will be profitable.

To get a better picture of the profits others are getting you can see who is doing conversions here: https://steemdb.com/labs/conversions

Go to their profiles to see how much they are getting.

https://steemit.com/@neverending/transfers is doing quite a lot of conversions so he might be a good one to take a look at.

How to initiate the conversion

It was removed from the Steemit interface as a lot of users were losing money converting when SBD was worth upwards of 10$ so now you need to do it through SteemConnect using this link:
https://steemconnect.com/sign/convert?owner=runicar&requestid=1&amount=0.000%20SBD

  • Replace runicar with your username and the amount with the desired amount of SBD you wish to convert to STEEM.

  • Don't delete the %20SBD part!

  • For every other conversion you MUST increment the requestid number by one!

  • Confirm

  • Input your username and passowrd and you are done!

After 3.5 days, you will receive STEEM which should be more than you would get by converting it on the internal market or external exchanges where it is valued in its real price. As long as the haircut doesn't apply and SBD is worth less than 1$, each conversion will be profitable!

This is not financial advice!

There is still a chance to lose money doing this if Steem price crashes, or SBD rises above 1$ so, do your own research and risk assessment before initiating the conversion.

I decided to take the risks involved with blockchain conversions and will report on my profits in a week or two after I finish couple of them.

Are you ready to take the risk?

Let me know in the comments!

I would still be careful with the conversions at this point given the volatility seen. However, if you were part of the brave (I missed it) that bought SBDs below $0.70, the conversion may make sense given the huge discount you were able to get on the SBD. Despite the haircut, it would be profitable more likely than not.

There are always risks involved, especially in times of such high volatility like we are seeing nowadays but, you can't expect to make money without taking risks, right?

Sell STEEM at these low prices? Are you mad?

HODL is life.

At least retain some value before it crashes

Too late, its already crashing.

Never too late before the crash

This method suck and if it was me I will remove SBD completely from the system. Doing so you only make more Steem in circulation.

You are assuming that the STEEM always price goes down, which is absolutely false. When the STEEM price goes up, the presence of SBD results in less STEEM in circulation.

To tell you the truth SBD is completely useless on this platform and only Steem is enough. Even with the conversion parameters set in the code with the ratio of SBD and Steem price fluctuations.

It may be, there are a range of opinions on the topic, for a variety of reasons including that people use Steem in different ways and for different purposes. However, all of that is a different matter from the mechanism by which SBD both increases inflation at times and decreases inflation at times, not only increases as claimed above.

Then power down all of your SP, buy SBD with it and send it to @null

A sarcastic way to explain your disagreement. ;)

haircut rule kicked in making the conversion risky and unprofitable

In fact the haircut rule do make convertions less risky and more predictable, you mostly would know to decimals the amount of Steem you'll get after 3.5 days.

Do you know what would that be in percentage terms?

Well, it really depends )
However the stated 15% would be only theorethicaly possible.
One thing is, while you probably could get "good" price if you want to buy 100 SBD, you can't expect your order to be filled at the same price if you want to buy 10000 SBD.
So the game is usually getting 3-5% on many convertions of about 100 SBD each rather then waiting for your luck of getting 15% on 10000 SBD. That sort of "jackpot" wouldn't happen really often.
