Something's Cookin'

in #steem4 years ago
Hi guys, I want to share with you something I'm currently working on. With the (bidbot) killer whales slaying every paid upvote in existence, it's time to create something new, more in line with #newsteem philosophy. Let's take a look :)

Curation + Gamification = ?

Basically I'm trying to create a system where selected group of users (let's call them @tipU curators) will be able to send @tipu upvotes for free, without any payment needed. They will be rewarded for their hard work but there's a catch - their curation votes will be validated - curators that bring the most curation rewards (more on that in a moment) will get higher rewards and will have more control over @tipU voting power.

The concept it pretty simple and probably there's nothing new about it but when you add automation and gamification elements to it, it's getting more interesting :) Things like leveling up, where with each level you can send more upvotes with higher value, leaderboard that determinates your daily reward and all of this automated - that's more like it :) All of those of course for free, no investment or payment needed from the curators.

As for those curation rewards - they will be used to reward the curators but primarily this will be the source of @tipU income that will be paid to @tipU investors - users that delegated their STEEM POWER to @tipU. In absence of vote selling I think this is the best way to use the 2.6 mln SP delegated to @tipU.

So the idea is to incentivize curators to generate decent curation rewards by curating good content (preferably before others ;) that can be then used as source for passive income for the delegators - users that not necessary have time to play the curation game themselves.

You can check out the first working version here: All transparent and automated. Please note that each curator can nominate new curators so I hope that the list will grow pretty fast ;)

Of course the system needs tons of fine tuning but with all the data provided it shouldn't be to hard (right?). I need few testers so let me know if you would like to have your name on the list ;) Also please feel free to share any feedback, I'm sure some elements can be made more user-friendly or interesting :) Have fun!

PS. 100% of post payout goes to @steem.dao


Please also gamify downvoting. ;)

Nice to hear about the upcoming changes, though!

giphy is supported by witness untersatz!

Let's try it, maybe already works:
@tipu downvote reason: bad whale or reason: I don't like him/her lol

All the nominated folks - remember that you can nominate others with the @tipu nominate command ;)

Could you grant me the curator role? I'd like to try this! Thank you!

Thank you!

That sounds like a great idea and I am excited to see how it evolves over time.
Please add me :)


@tipu nominate hide :)

Sounds great. Please add me!

What a great idea! I would love to be on the tester list to curate great content. I love seeing the changes all over the platform.

Hi @misslasvegas! @cardboard has nominated you to become a @tipU curator! You can now request 3 @tipU upvotes per day on any content you like. The better curation reward you can get, the more upvotes with higher value you can send. You can nominate new curators as well!

To send the upvote, please comment under the post and at the end of the comment, add: @tipu curate. To nominate someone else you think would make a good @tipU curator, reply to one of their posts or comments with: @tipu nominate. All of this is of course free :)
Check out for more information and to see your stats :). Have fun!

This is such great idea, please add me to the list!

I'd like to try this. Thanks!

@tipu nominate hide :)

It seems this hasn't worked. I assume you have used up your daily nomination already.

I'd like to be one of you?

I like to be a curator too.
