Two Ways to Earn With SmartSteem: Do the Smart Thing!

in #steem6 years ago (edited)

There's something everyone has in common on the Steem Blockchain, and that is the desire to grow their audience, voice and Steempower.

If you're looking for a way to promote your content or to simply maximize your growth rates in addition with your Steempower ... SmartSteem may be the smart choice for you.

SmartSteem and SmartMarket are fairly new in the Steem Blockchain, so we know many of you still are unsure on how everything works.

We also believe communication is key, so we like to keep everyone informed on how we grow and work to better provide our services to you.

Having that in mind, we thought about giving you an in-depth overview on our services and on how you can easilly and effortlessly work with us in order to maximize your profits and exposure.

Sounds good?

Then read below, as it's going to get better.

Earning as a Customer:

As we previously stated, there are two ways to earn with

  • You can earn as a Customer
  • You can earn as a Supporter

Let's start by going over everything you can do as a customer, which includes using our bidbot, buying votes on SmartMarket and making sure it is all done with the highest quality guidelines in mind.

Trust us... we hate SPAM just as much as you do, and low effort posters, spammers and plagiarists won't find our service cooperative.

But let's approach each of these topics in depth now.

Meet SmartSteem the BidBot:

If you want to use our bidbot, you simply need to send @smartsteem a minimum of 0.5 SBD or STEEM and link the post you want it to boost in the MEMO section of the transfer.

As of now, @smartsteem has a vote roughly worth $70, but that is subject to change on a daily basis.

This bidbot is ideal for the little guys who want added exposure as it has a low minimum bid amount ensuring even the smallest players get a say.

Go the Extra Mile with SmartMarket:

On the other hand, you have @smartmarket.

Smartmarket is a service that allows you to buy votes, but it has a twist.

Unlike its competitors where you buy a vote and get it done by someone, you can buy a vote with smartmarket and get it done by multiple people.

Sounds confusing?

It isn't...

Simply put, if you buy a vote worth $10 on our competitors' services, you'll get an upvote worth $10. On the other hand, buying a vote worth $10 from us can net you a $5, a $3 and a $2 upvote.

This makes it seem more natural and organic, so you can get all of the benefits with zero shame.

High Quality Standards:

You should also note that we review each SmartSteem account manually and Whitelist them or Blacklist them.

When the accounts are approved, we give them between 1 to 3 stars depending on their content's quality.

We care about the content on the blockchain and we take pride in ensuring a proper "SmartScore" is given to each individual, but more on that later.

Earning as a Supporter:

Now, there are a lot more ways to work with us and ensure your growth rates go through the roof.

You can:

  • Sell your Votes through SmartMarket;
  • Delegate your SP to SmartSteem;
  • Calculate your Revenue for both the cases.

...and even earn a percentage of the vote-selling profits from your referrals to the site!

It's a win-win-win!

Let's take a look at how that works.

Sell Your Votes to SmartMarket:

The above image is your "Features" page on the portal.

Through it you can sell your votes.

Simply select your voting power treshold, and choose the payout deadline.

Finally, you're given the ability to either sell your vote to anyone or only for SmartScore Star users.

While you'll get faster income with Everyone tagged in, choosing SmartScore Stars ensures you only vote for content providers manually approved by us, so you know it's quality stuff.

Delegate To SmartSteem:

You can also delegate to SmartSteem, our BidBot.

If you do, then you receive a proportional part of the 95% slice of the bid-bot's profits.

This can be a very lucrative way to ensure your SP is being used even when you don't plan to use it yourself.

Ever wonder why Whales delegate to bots so much? It's because it works as an investment.

Care to capitalize on your Idle Steem Power?

This may be the thing for you.

When in Doubt, Calculate Revenue: The Feature You've Been Waiting For!

We know what you're thinking - there's a huge problem with these services.

There are these different choices, but you never know what's the best one for you.

Introducing... a feature you have all been waiting for:

The Revenue Calculator!

You don't have to fetch a calculator and put on your geek glasses to see what's the best course of action - you now have a "Calculate Revenue" button in your SmartSteem page that allows you to easilly see what the your returns will be for delegating or vote-selling.

So, if you're in doubt, simply check it out and decide what makes the most sense for your particular case!

We got your back!

Do the Smart Thing... with SmartSteem!

So, do you now see why SmartSteem is becoming the go-to destination for both vote buying and selling?

Do you also see why more and more people turn to us to ensure their votes and Steem Power and giving them dividends?

But these aren't the only reasons, we have something else:

We know an attractive and intuitive GUI (Graphic User Interface) can make or break a business, platform and even blockchain.

That's why we strive to always keep it simple, minimalistic and easy to navigate.

You don't need to be tech savvy to use our service, you don't need to be a coder and you certainly don't need a huge tutorial.

It's there... try it!


Interesting concept. The Steem community never fails to amaze!


These guys have really figured this out. You can make money while you sleep, Just signup Download the free miner. There is never a fee. (not to sound like a shill) This is like a money drop! I will post again with details of my profits.

well your raison d'etre looks really good on paper and i did try your vote service all works well

Great Darsico, have you also tried to sell your votes to whitelisted members?

tell me more about whitelisted members? How to become one. The way the vote-bots are paying out i'm thanking my lucky stars i have a vote:)))

Go there and then register to sell your votes, in the same page there is a whitelist button, under the "smartsteem" tab;

There you can apply for the Whitelist condition.

P.S.: I also want one of your self-vote worth 1.43 ;-)

i'm a systems analyst, hey why does your @smartsteem take so long to vote after it's full?? everybody else does it in 2min or less and i've waited 30 minutes to see a regular payout is that your quality control? just gathering useless info you know :)

I sent 0.50 SBD and memo link and i dont get upvot

Hi Dan,

Are you referring to these ones?

please cheak it @santana33 ...i did not get any upvote for tree post ..


So can you tell me how does buying upvotes help the post other then make money for the person that posted the content.. but how does it help the steemit platform.. I do not get it..

How Much time it is taking currently to be reviewed. I have applied on 13 February and not got a reply yet. I know that pending list is long and it will take time. Just wanted to have an idea. Also is there any discord channel you have?

Hey @smartsteem, hope you are well,
I made this video of my thoughts on why vote selling/buying gets away from one of the main value propositions for the platform - quality content. It wasn't directed towards you or anyone in particular. But a good place for this discussion I think. Are you concerned at all about how vote buying could negatively affect the quality of the trending page?

upvoted to aggrandize myself

Hi Richard, thanks for your comment. Not representing Thereal or the team, though I am a moderator there, I can tell you that we look for the best content before providing users with a whitelist ranking. This means, that to receive a huge upvote from our users, you would need to have a rank 3 (excellent). Plagiarism, hate speech, racism, spam, etc. are not whitelisted, and even in some cases blacklisted, so that kind of content will not receive our support. That is why I as small Steem investor support from the inception SmartSteem and the reason why I work with the team to promote it actively.

I also consider that many bots which do not have this kind of quality separation, are indeed a bad seed for the success of the platform.

Thanks for your thoughtful response. What do you have to do to get rank 3?

I know these bots usually don't upvote and even blacklist plagiarism, hatespeach, spam, etc.they wouldn't get away with that for long, but the problem is that the goal is not about what is good, its about money. I see greed destroying all of our major institutions in the U.S., and I really don't want to see it destroy Steemit.

What do you see as the long term value propisition for vote buying/selling? How will it add value to the platform overtime?

An excellent steemer would be someone who is great at content, format, etc. but most important gives a great added value to the blockchain community. So, original content plus added value. We use standard criteria before vetting, but of course, there is room for subjectivity.

Would recomend you to sign in for the whitelist, use my link and apply for a whitelisted user, we have a lot of requests right now, due to this post. Hence, bear with us please.

You still didn't answer my main question.

What do you see as the long term value propisition for vote buying/selling? How will it add value to the platform overtime?

I do not know where Steem will be in the next 3 years, no one knows for sure. As for now, I can distinguish SmartSteem with its whitelisted solution. There is a blacklist with all those who plagiarize, spams or have simply thousand "follow me" requests. We try to keep the content quality at a min. of average. All that is below that does not get through the Whitelist.

If in the near future SmartSteem gets to be the most preferred upvoting solution for big players, those who do not have an average content will eventually leave Steem for good, leaving room for better quality content.

That is the main point in the short-term. Other solutions may arise if the Blockchain is modified on its core.

Transparency is key here, only by looking at someone wallet and posts you know on what they are now. Every anarcho system goes from total chaos to a self-regulated sustainable system. SS is part of that evolution, as many other Dapps.

I hope this answer is what you were expecting.

Thank you. If smartsteem focuses on quality content maybe thats an improvement over some current bots, but I still see these vote buying bots extracting value from Steemit over time and getting away from what made it great. I'll quite hassling you though. Thanks for taking the time to talk to me.

If I were to deposit/buy more STEEM or SBD does that mean I would earn more?

Hi Catdaddy, only by buying or having more SP you would generate more income through a service like SmartSteem. As also when you curate others content.

For more info, use this link; and click on the "Calculate Revenue" button on the right corner

How can we sell our votes by the way? or how do we know that the bots did the upvote for us?

Once you are registered to sell your votes you will have a user interface where you can see your balance and each of your upvotes sold.

ahh so if you don't have SP the bots can't use Upvotes from any account ? is that so?

If I were to deposit/buy more STEEM or SBD does that mean I would earn more?

Santana, I really appreciate all of your responses. I've been learning a whole lot more from your responses than the actual article which has been quite refreshing.

Thanks a lot @roselynn it really warms my heart that you consider my information so useful.

I just visited the smartsteem website today and I have to say that it is very user friendly and works nicely! I bought some votes and saw that I got exactly what I paid for. This is definitely going to be added to my tools on Steemit and used on a regular basis. In the future will there be capability to upvote your comments automatically? I think that is a cool feature and it would work very well for real, active users. Thank you so much for the service!

im using this service almost daily

When we take 95% back from @smartsteem or any other bot, we have the opportunity to give some back to those that need it and fund projects that grow Steem. While it is nice to have the option to take a maximum payout on our Steem power, we can count on the highest return on investment when we also help the value of Steem grow which is possible with giving back, funding growth projects, and generosity.

If we all delegate to a bot, take the maximum payout, and cashout, we are unlikely to build a community here worth participating in.

Bidding bots that automatically give a percentage back to fund Steem growth projects are listed at with the hand symbol filter.

Hello friend @jerrybanfield, what should be understood as a steem growth project and how can you opt for financing if you have a growth project?

That's good to know! I noticed your bot has the symbol. Which Steem growth projects does your bot give back to?

I'm not going to use any these votes or buy delegation. That's what everyone else does. They seem rather desperate. Especially these whales with crap content that need bots and delegated steem power just to get noticed but the truth is they suck

I'd love a way to scrape the site to make a list of users and automatically mute all of them.

That is a good idea and possible job opening! I'd like to mute about 80% of what I see on here.

I dont like this way

why you don't like this way brother , i think its amazing @rex1442
