Experimental Crowdsorcing Rewards

Charts and tables don't tell the whole story and it's easy to miss the big picture. I'm trying a complementary crowdsourcing approach.

  • Share your observations or findings about Steem in the comments of this post. They can be based on statistics in this report, my other reports, posts of other authors or your own experience.
  • Every author of a high quality comment will get 1 SP and a proportional share of 50% of liquid STEEM payouts for this post.
  • First 3 high quality comment authors will get 3 SP and the same share of payouts
  • Your observation should bring a reader closer to understanding Steem, provide a new perspective or reduce uncertainty. No FUD/HYPE please. Don't plagiarize or copy other comments or posts, original content only.


The data and visualization in this post may contain errors and inaccuracies. Don't make important decisions without verifying data yourself. If you have any suggestions or found an error in the data, please get in touch with me on steemit.chat.

Thank you very much for the mention @ontofractal!

From my own personal experience I’ve found that at this price range of Steem I’ve been more inclined to sell some of my other proof of stake coins and transfer their value into Steem for holding rather than focus exclusively on developing more content. I’ve been trying to do both but my writing ideas are reaching a bit of a slump so I’m kind of focusing more on learning stuff.

I hope to put out some more quality posts and get in a better place to improve my earnings if the price of Steem heads back up or my writers block goes away. My plans are to continue to hold and purchase because I continue to see great potential here - in particular once the rapid inflation rate is changed as planned in the next hard fork.

Thanks for doing your charts I enjoy looking at them.


Thanks, an interesting perspective. Sending your 3 SP now.


Got it! Thank you. :)

Disclaimer: I am just a bot trying to be helpful.

I hope STEEM goes down to 1-5 cents for a bit, I have a few nice buy orders in that range. The lower price has also changed my cloud mining stradegy, focusing more heavily on STEEM. With the impending changes to steem I can see the price dropping quite a bit at first, then going way up once the sellouts are gone.


Thanks! Powering up 3 SP now.


No thank you, for all the reports and analysis. It's important to have as much information as possible when choosing what coins to invest in.


Much appreciated! (/^▽^)/

From my personal experience, @steemsports is really effective in accomplishing its mission. Its posts are regularly in the top 1% of the payout distribution (your last graph). I make, on average, 3-4SP/day, even though they don't distribute their payouts every day. That's so much better than my 50 cents per week curation, even with some helpful bots. It's the prize payouts that make @steemsports work. They have more post upvotes than the total comment upvotes, sometimes by almost double. I spend no time and no thought choosing which team to upvote in the comments. It would be nice to have a bot handle all the @steemsports posts.

Could you do some specific analysis of @steemsports and its impact on Steemit payouts. For example, what is the average take of the daily payout that it takes in? And what's the average payout that it makes to a regular participant?

Thanks for your daily analysis posts, too. I always find some interesting posts here.


This is a great suggestion for analysis and an insightful comment, thanks. Yeah, this is an important development for Steem. Powering you up.


I saw some transfers in my wallet. Thanks, @ontofractal! I do appreciate it.
