I stumbled across this new website earlier today!

What is Steem-Bounty do you ask?

Steem bounty is a Steem based website that uses your posts, and puts what they call a "bounty" on your post like a Hitman would be sent to collect a "bounty" on your head!! except... no-one is being hunted, i assure you you're quite safe behind your screen!

How does it work?

so first off we are gunna head to the website as shown below!

On the website

As you can see its quite appealing to start, just go to whichever article you want to read, click comment and upvote! all up to you. The same thing applies with every new steem website. Log on with @steemconnect and you're good to go. Yes its safe, and no-one is going to steal your hard earned SBD!

Procaptainjoe, what makes @steem-bounty different than sites like Steempeak and Steemit?

Well, Steem-Bounty is different in the bounty aspect of course. When you go to curate your own post, you will be prompted at the end to set a bounty on your post!

You can submit the bounty as Steem or SBD. What this means is that you post it with a "bounty" on it.

7 days after the creation of the post (not of the bounty) steem-bounty will tally all the votes and pay out each comment that received so much votes that its creator would at least get 0.001 Steem or SBD depending of the currency of the bounty.

I gave it a shot with a 4STEEM bounty on my post Here

So from my understanding, if i have a 4 Steem bounty, and 4 people comment on my post each one of you will get 1 Steem. If only one person comments, well thats 4 Steem for that person! Thats an expensive comment right?! For that comment to be "a valid acceptance" to the bounty, someone other than yourself has to like the comment that you posted on the bountied post.

This is another way for the Plankton and Minnows to rank up a little bit quicker!

I think this is a great new invention, and i highly recomend everyone to hop on this train and start commenting on these bounties!!!

Wow! Very informative blog you have here.. i did notice some posts have set some bounties in it. Somehow everyone how commented there receives a share of that bounty..

For me, its one way of attracting people to visit and leave comments.. I say its great! You get to visit some friend including strangers and you get a bonus..

Yeah like thanks for visiting my blog I appreciate you read my post that took me an hour to write and actually had some input. Haha like I joined steem to communicate with others!! That's what I'm trying to do!

That's why we are here! We dont just post our own writing but we also need to get out and engage in the community. That is one way too of getting and knowing new friends.

i think not all have any idea about steem bounties... so i like it a lot! great job!

I have heard of and received Steem bounties before, but have never taken the time to look under the hood. Thanks for the check mark off my list of things to do on Steemit.

I am still a little confused though as to why and when I should put a bounty on my post? I don’t understand how this would help a plankton or minnow “rank up”? It seems their wallets would be emptier since they purchased a bounty. The only way this would make positive financial sense is if the bounty attracted dolphins to upvote the post totaling more than the bounty purchased. Please fill in my missing gap.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Since there is a higher incentive for others to vote on your post and comment to receive a bounty, more people will compete for the bounty making it kind of a bait in the water and watch the people swarm! Atleast that's what I'm thinking! Hahaha

If a minnow has 1 steem to spare on a post he took 2 hours to write, therea nothing wrong with taking out a bounty on the post and seeing what happens!
