My Upvote Service is Changing... In A Very Good Way!
It's been a while since I provided an update for the @brandonfrye upvote bot. So today I will outline some changes that will take effect immediately. And I'm sure you guys will be excited to hear what they are! So without further ado let's get into it...
Higher Delegation Payouts (90%!!)
Over the last few weeks I've been brainstorming ways to increase payouts to delegators without negatively impacting the @minnowfund initiative. It's a fine line I have to walk in order to make sure I'm rewarding my delegators (investors) as much as possible while still making the most impact with MinnowFund. But I finally found a solution that works for both the interests of the investors and MinnowFund.
Starting today, delegators will notice a slightly higher payout each day. I've upped the payouts from 85% to 90%!! This means that 90% of all the bids coming in each day for the @brandonfrye upvote bot will be paid out to those that have delegated their Steem Power to my account. This is pretty big news, especially considering that we're still going to be supporting @minnowfund. In fact, MinnowFund will now get an even larger portion of Steem Power from the upvote bot service. I'll explain that in a minute...
How Can I Delegate And Earn Passively?
If you would like to support the @minnowfund, and earn 90% of the profits in daily SBD and Steem payouts, please consider delegating to my service. Your support goes a long way here! Simply go to https://steembottracker.com/delegation.html and insert your username, click Load, add @brandonfrye as the Delegatee, and insert the amount of Steem Power you would like to delegate.
Note: I recommend delegating a minimum of 50 SP.
Bigger Support for MinnowFund
So you may be wondering, how in the heck can he pay out 90% to delegators and still grow @minnowfund? Great question! Starting this week, I will be taking the curation rewards earned by the @brandonfrye upvote bot and sending it over to the MinnowFund account.
Until now, @minnowfund has been bringing in around 28-30 SP each week from my upvote bot. And my account (@brandonfrye) is currently earning around ~40 SP each week in curation rewards. So if I take that 40 SP each week and send it over to MinnowFund then that's a pretty big increase in growth for the initiative and will allow us to help more people in a quicker amount of time!
How to Accomplish This?
By powering down my account once a month (perhaps less) I will be able to extract the curation rewards being earned from the upvote service. I will then move that Steem Power into my alternate account (@brandonfryeroi) so that I can make payments to @minnowfund each week. I will be using https://www.steemworld.org/@brandonfrye to calculate the curation SP being earned each week so I know how much to send over.
New BlackList and Updated Terms of Service
I thought it would be wise to add a section here to recap the rules of using the @brandonfrye upvote service. I do my best to ensure that my service is not used to promote spam, scams, plagiarism, cons, or the like. Not only do I monitor the bids coming into my bot, and their corresponding links, but I've now connected my bot to the @buildawhale blacklist so that known "problem accounts" cannot use my service. And all bids that come in from these accounts are rejected.
You Will Be Blacklisted And Lose Your Upvote if:
- No effort was put into creating your post (i.e. two sentences long, a single image, etc.)
- You take advantage of our service with multiple upvotes on the same post using threaded comments
- You plagiarize content (including images, audio, video and text)
- You send spam via wallets, comments, posts, etc.
- You are caught scamming or committing fraud
- You create (or upvote) posts that are complaining about upvote bots
- You are already on the @buildawhale blacklist
If you're caught doing any of these things, you will lose your upvote and NOT be refunded! These bids will be paid out to the @minnowfund initiative as a donation.
We also DO NOT allow the following tags:
Due to the lack of effort involved, low quality, and high amount of plagiarism with these posts, we cannot promote them. But you will receive a refund if you place a bid on a post that includes any of these tags.
Please note that I'm not perfect and am capable of making a mistake. If there was a mistake on my part and your account was blacklisted, I will personally refund your account and make things right. Just reach out to me via https://steem.chat/ and we'll work it out there.
Please reach out to me and report abuse if you see it!
How to Promote Your Post & Bot Parameters
If you would like to promote your (or another person's) post then simple send a minimum bid of .10 SBD or Steem to @brandonfrye with the link to the post in the memo field. The percentage of upvote you get will be determined by the amount of your bid. For example, if two people bid during a round and one sends 1 SBD while the other sends 2 SBD, the first person will receive a 33% upvote while the second person will receive a 66% upvote.
Current Bot Parameters
