@kingscrown is back - STEEM and SBD pumped! And a Community Question Inside!

in #steemit4 years ago

This post is a followup to https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@kingscrown/kingscrown-went-mia-btc-dumped-to-9k-usd so if you have no sense of humor... Find it!

So both STEEM and SBD pumped right now, lets see where they go.


Its hard to count so on decentralized OpenLedger (get there, those types of exchanges are the future) its cheaper to buy with BTS than on others.


Upbit the Korean exchange is pumping price of SBD as usual. Dont bother with HitBTC, withdrawals still dead since 2-3 months.

Why is SBD worth more than STEEM ?

We know Korea is pumping it, but before KR had exchange Poloniex also pumped it way above peg. What ar the reasons that SBD goes so high and even higher than STEEM ? 1USD peg is far far away.

Leave replies and ideas in comments.

I will be happy to read them.

Woff, woff!

Hello @kingscrown, Nice to meet you!

I'm a guide dog living in KR community. I can see that you want to contribute to KR community and communicate with other Korean Steemians. I really appreciate it and I'd be more than happy to help.

KR tag is used mainly by Koreans, but we give warm welcome to anyone who wish to use it. I'm here to give you some advice so that your post can be viewed by many more Koreans. I'm a guide dog after all and that's what I do!


  • If you're not comfortable to write in Korean, I highly recommend you write your post in English rather than using Google Translate.
    Unfortunately, Google Translate is terrible at translating English into Korean. You may think you wrote in perfect Korean, but what KR Steemians read is gibberish. Sorry, even Koreans can't understand your post written in Google-Translated Korean.
  • So, here's what might happen afterward. Your Google-Translated post might be mistaken as a spam so that whales could downvote your post. Yikes! I hope that wouldn't happen to you.
  • If your post is not relevant to Korea, not even vaguely, but you still use KR tag, Whales could think it as a spam and downvote your post. Double yikes!
  • If your post is somebody else's work(that is, plagiarism), then you'll definitely get downvotes.
  • If you keep abusing tags, you may be considered as a spammer. It may result to put you into the blacklist. Oops!

I sincerely hope that you enjoy Steemit without getting downvotes. Because Steemit is a wonderful place. See? Korean Steemians are kind enough to raise a guide dog(that's me) to help you!

Woff, woff! 🐶

since the on and off ramps for steem are through BTC and ETH, the price has to be looked at in these terms. On a relative basis, steem's price is far from its highs. Long way to go.


부러워요 투표수^^오늘도 힘내세요

एक अलग सामग्री

yes steem has to reach to the moon

Got to get me some STEEM

I wonder why myself but I prefer for SBD to have a higher price compared to Steem. I believe eventually steem will run up but I'm not sure if Steem Dollars will go with it. At that time, our posts will generate less Steem power.

I still say that SBD didn't start behaving erratically till the UpBit listing started, and I'm guessing there are a whole lot of people buying it who have NO idea that it isn't even a "real" cryptocurrency, just an internal smart contract used to pay content creators here.

But-- because it has a small market cap-- people realize they can pump it pretty easily, so it goes WAY off the $1.00 peg... and the market would have to be flooded something fierce with more SBD to bring it back to anywhere even near the peg. There's a lot more Steem on the market, so it's harder to move.

There is a use-case for SBDs - buying votes, bringing attention to your posts. Influencing the community's opinion.
Also, I remember there was something like a Steemit ebay where you can buy items with your SBDs.
So, I wouldn't necessarily say that SBD is not a real cryptocurrency.

I totally agree. I think there is actually a large amount of money that is "indexing" the top 100 list, and people are investing in every coin on the list to not miss any of the big pumps and follow the market as a whole.

I feel like screaming "tell me more".

Yeah this is the most likely explanation for me as well. What I'm wondering is - with the SBD supply so low, is it theoretically possible that it stays overvalued (or even climbs more) purely off of the speculative nature of crypto investing?

It doesn't take that much interest to drive SBD to $10+, compared to other tokens. Maybe this is the new normal for a while, until crypto valuations mature in some kind of meaningful way.

I think for a while it's possible. The mega-speculative investing has to come to an end at some point, I would think.

SBD is not meant to be pegged but to maintain at least $1 value. So nothing is erratic. Unless there is a massive supply of SBD, the price will be well above $1

Why is SBD worth more than STEEM ?

IMO it is mostly STEEM is undervalued and the supply of SBD is linked to STEEM (the supply rate is also too low, but that's perhaps secondary, and also could be more flexible).

My reward burning initiative (see posts in my blog) will help address this by introducing a missing feedback mechanism. That is, a portion of the overvalued SBD is used to buy and burn STEEM, which should both increase the price of STEEM and decrease the price of SBD. The effectiveness of this will depend in large part on the degree of voter support.

Given the size and strength of the community and the features of the working blockchain, STEEM should easily be a top 10 blockchain. The market needs a little help in recognizing this.

I just stumbled upon your reward burning initiative and have to say it is pioneering. There really should be a platform-wide option that allows all users to support something like this.

For example, for users to be able to flag others, they should be required to put their money where their mouth is and burn a minimal amount of steem or SBD. This may mitigate the flagrant flag wars that are going on right now, as the reward pool abuse becomes more evident to the community.

I like to think of Steem and SBD as Neo and Gas, SBD could actually be one of the most creative incentive structure, the higher the price the more likely people would hold unto the Steem.... As SBD is like a bridge to Steem, it gives users a good medium of exchange... As long as SBD circulation is kept within limits, it might be better pegged to Steem and could actually help the price

I don't get the whole SBD thing, why is it pumped so hard???

Act with great care, coins with small market caps and thin volume (fits the bill for sbd) have been pumped and dumped in the past and will continue to do so as long as exchanges and regulators allow the manipulation of the market. Buyers of SBD recently are looking for a quick return, they're weak hands and will sell for a profit. It's easier to move an object when it weighs less, which is why they'd have to try harder to get the same price action on something with steem's market cap.

I think pumping sbd is something that is good and bad at thesame time. Sbd increase will make more engagement on the platform to become exponential, that is great. But the bad side is that the main purpose and initial outlook for sbd which is to be pegged at 1 usd becomes defeated and at the end, we are left with steem blockchain dollar instead of steem backed dollar. It also has effect on the payout, this is becasue we have more payout in sbd and lesser in steempower. My 2 cents.

Sense of humor??? Prices are rising, so "someone" is jumping to post more frequently with empty nonsense to capitalize on an auto-vote following, per usual, for the inequitable payday.

You are right ! But People who are doing are losing followers loyalty. As it involved with money some avoid to upvote them for this greedy actions.

Ayy man welcome back knight!

I'm also very pumped right now! This is GREAT news! I'm encouraging my Family, Friends and Clients to purchase Steem and join Steemit! I'm a HUGE believer in both! The sky is the limit! The Steemit membership numbers are going to be phenomenal this year! It is such and fun and helpful Community! I'm very blessed and honored to be a part of! All the best my Friends! Please, everyone continue to spread the word! Warm Wishes! Positive Energy! Great Karma! Your Friend @extraterrestrial :)

The only way is up.. steem to the moon!

nice comment i like it

Why?when usd tether crashes,sbd will stay pegd to 1 usd.Someone is building huge supply over time.

Either way I am trying to load the boat full of STEEM as much as possible.

SBD is scarce and still easily convertible to other currencies.

I would always prefer Steam (Power) over Steem. This is due to the fact that the supply of SBD increases more when the price is higher as people will tend to use the 50-50 option, even if the want to have Steem Power.

I think steem and SBD have their upward space. This platform has attracted a large number of talents , not only the excellent authors but also excellent investors. Once it is attracted by everyon, then i think the platform will be wider and the rising will not stop. thanks for your sharing @kingscrown . i am always glad to know more about infor from your post . thanks again .

Nice post prices are up again

Maybe this quote from SMT White Paper could provide some clue to the encreasing demand for SBD ?

Initially, smt_creation_fee will be set to 1 SBD, and no means will be provided
to update it.

wow. after i redeemed my lowest reward and it pumped back. feeling unlucky.

Unlike before, when the payout gives enough sp. But now, the sp from payouts is less, and will even be lesser as the price of steem is going higher, and i fear sbd may not be able to go higher with steem.

Ohh my god ...................Wow that's awesome

I guess it is due to the marketcap of sbd is low compared to steem and also, some people are coverting sbd to steem which makes sbd price go higher.

Wow Ur a brilliant talented so much highest posting is early money is within timing hour greatly I shocked exactly ur posting

I want followers... @kingscrown

good information

I am new.so this is help ful post to me

I like humor but my wife does not know which way we can be humorous

I think it is because it has the word "dollar" in its name.
That must be why its worth more!

Sdb is sky roketing it wont stop before it is $20usd

The rise in price is a good news

The Witnesses need to up the bias to push the SBD value down.

Personally I wish SBD went even higher.

Withdraws from HitBTC down for real @kingscrown ???

Wow, this is a good morning news.
Up we go!

I like sbd pumping and steem uping but I don't know who overpay in exchanges and why

Nice!! I am seeing steem at 30 around April-May

Lovely, I think there is no reason that SBD higher then STEEM. So i always change my SBD into steem!

Also kinda a dick move to use the actual good post of another person to post a comment for no other reason to come back and farm it later.

Post Author, @kingscrown I do apologize.. This dude makes no actual articles of his own so the only way to draw attention to what he is doing is to comment his comments. My sincerest apologies for cluttering up your blog, outing the abusive self voting behavior of @ryacha21

your post is great and interesting for me

health is wealth

I very much appreciate this.

I'm new to cryptos and steemit but I'll get used to, but anyways I saw this post and it reminded me of my family.

The general consensus from several sources is that Steem is under valued. I has grown tremendously in its first year in in Beta phase. It has not even hit a million users yet. The potential growth curve is tremendous. With more users comes more value.

I think SBD price increase day by day & thanks to share with us this content.

It's going up because steemit.com is awesome and has great value in so many areas. All the connected apps, free transfers etc etc....
Life is Good 😎

I hope it rise high with great stability. Kudos to the author.

Thanks for the update. These are exciting times!

i think i have a high sense of humor...nice post @kingcrown

I wonder if SBD wille ever come down to its intrinsic value of $1 and if Steem will even overtake it in the near future.. Either way, I don't mind.. higher SBD means higher payouts :)

@kingscrown sir this is my frist comment

STEEM is created with SBD, i think steem trading volume is high, demand for sbd is going to be higher, koreans are going to HODL

What's the deal with Koreans. They have more Steemians?

I withdrawal today at 8 a.m(india) from poloniex on steam doller (steamit.com).
Which did not happen. I also create a support ticket, but it has no advantage.(Complete error)
What should I do.
please help me

i sold some of my steem for BTC and was really impressed as it made the BTC seem much cheaper than using dollars. I guess i need to learn the value is in the steem.

That's my biggest headache. Learning how this dance of numbers is actually done.

Moje zdanie na ten temat jest takie jak w nocy na czacie:

I think that SBD's are leading the rally higher, because they essentially have a high beta. They trade with larger volatility than the broader market, because the order books are thin. I personally believe that SBD's have very little underlying value, but they do have a significant impact on the value of steemit. The price of SBD's directly impacts the earnings of steemit users. In order to maximize profit, steemians want SBD's to have as high of a value as possible. Whales could place long term bets on the success of Steemit by buying up the price of SBD's. They make a larger profit per post, and make back their initial investment in SBD's over time. As more users realize this tactic, or begin trading SBD's purely on technical analysis (like an alt coin), then SBD's could continue to rally in price!

well @kingscrown I am certain without fear of complication that steem and sbd are the best thing in crypto backed by a loving community who will never allow it fall. thanks for sharing this

Meet you on the MOOOON! :)

Nice small info


Because it is the liquid currency of the platform, which can be traded in and therefore in the market is speculated with respect to the price according to the volume of sales, which can go up or down.

SBD and steem is going day by day.. And that's a good news

@kingscrown Embrace the PUMP !!!

Simple supply/demand function at work here. Wit less than 7 million SBD in circulation, investors are seeing the limited quantity and comparing it to other coins out there. More exchanges means more eyes seeing it, limited supply means a potential for a large pump, lets just enjoy it while we can

Coin Marketplace

STEEM 0.21
TRX 0.06
JST 0.026
BTC 18875.85
ETH 1010.36
USDT 1.00
SBD 2.83
