For the latest USD exchange rate price on your hard earned SD:
LAST UPDATE 7/8: SteemDollar.com website screenshot right after it went thought the $1 threshold at 15:30 CEST (15/07/07)
Curently its a bit of work to calculate what the "exact" exchange rate of Steem Dollars is compared to the USD. And since I was quite interested in the latest exchange rate I decided to make a tool. This started with a simple google spreadsheet that I shared here with you.
Since I got quite some response I further developed the idea of a website ticker that shows the current "real" value of the Steem Dollar compared to the dollar.
To explain how the conversion works I'm going to show you an example with some "random" values. Next to that you can read from which exchanges the values are loaded from.
Actual Live Data:
SD/STEEM = 0.329000 SD (internal markets ask price)
BTC/STEEM = 0.00043 BTC (Bittrex price from api)
USD/BTC = $639.085 (Coindesk price from api)
Calculation & Formula:
1 SD = 3.0395136778115 STEEM
3.0395136778115 STEEM * 0.00043 BTC = 0.001306990881459 BTC
0.001306990881459 BTC * 639.085 USD = $ 0.8352782674772
