@lukestokes random question brother - is there any advantage to me not claiming rewards straight away? - do my rewards sit in the reward pool as long as I dont claim them? - do you see this "claim rewards" button as a benefit health wise to the payout ecosystem as a whole?

Sort:  

Hey @thejohalfiles. Looks like @acidyo got you covered here. Sorry, I missed your comment because it wasn't a reply to one of mine. The browser mention notifications aren't that reliable.

I don't know the details of keeping the rewards in a pool until they are claimed, but I assume it helps with performance and might also have an impact on the interest rate of newly created VESTS given to Steem Power holders, but I'm not really sure. It's complicated stuff.

is there any advantage to me not claiming rewards straight away?

No.

do my rewards sit in the reward pool as long as I dont claim them?

Yes

So if I wanted I could let my rewards build up and claim them all at once?.. Or have a set schedule where I claim it once per week/month. ... I sort of like this.

Yeah that's how I've understood it so far. I like it too, gives it a more natural feel somehow and appreciation of the rewards than just automatically receiving them.

Yes, it keeps your attention on certain things. I like it. Thank you for your reply brother @acidyo
