Why I Delegated 500SP to @steem-ua

in steemit •  last year  (edited)

Its a new era for the Steem community these days, and its not Plankton friendly. That's why I'm​ introducing you to @steem-ua!

The last couple days i have been active on steem, commenting on peoples posts and i was actually shocked at what i found. About 3 or 4 people, making a BEAUTIFUL post about why they are QUITTING steem! People putting effort into writing a post about why they are quitting. While reading these posts, they all had one thing in common.

"Noone is liking any of my posts", or "Other people post one picture and make $1000".

So i did a little investigating of course on all of these complaints, and i would see that they had quite a bit of time on steem. They had been active for quite some time, loved it and then just gave up. I would comment on their posts saying stay active, keep it up! Recognition is due for people like you that try! But when they spend 1 hour on these posts for 5 upvotes that are 0.01 payout its a struggle. Im not saying it's​ not difficult for everyone when you start off, but "quality" content should be rewarded.

Its a struggle when people sign up on steem, they see Smartsteem and they sell their votes and think since they are selling now they are not allowed to vote. THAT IS NOT THE CASE! I am signed up with smartsteem, as a form of Passive Income because i would be silly to let my votes go to waste when i sleep, but when im awake and actively posting on steem I'm also upvoting.

Why i decided to delegate 500SP

First off, i was going through all of @steem-ua's posts and reading them and thinking to myself, wow! This is exactly what i am telling people every time i comment on their posts. Stay active, interact with people, comment and be there for others. Everything i have been saying to everyone the past month is just right here in front of me being taught by one account! And then rewarding them for some actual quality posts without having to pay 20STEEM for an upvote to get even close to a trending page! NOW WE'RE TALKING! So i went to the delegation tab and started with 250SP. Then i came across this post..

If you have not read this post by @scipio, go there now and read it!

Its a long read, but it'll make you believe in something like you have never believed in anything before! In this post he summarises why @steem-ua was created and what for. So if I'm confusing you, or not giving you any information on what this project really is, go to this post! if you're that Minnow or Plankton sitting there writing hour-long posts and not being rewarded, you will be rewarded here. Amongst these people are the people that truly care for the Steem blockchain, that want to see it really succeed!

My favorite part-

The comment that @scipio makes is totally true. If you have ever felt ignored or forgotten after posting an amazing article on steem, its because we did lose you! When I'm not writing my own posts (i only write about one on average a day) I'm looking for awesome posts I can read and comment on so i can interact with you guys! I spend about 4 or more hours a day on steem looking for awesome posts! This way with @steem-ua, we will have someone trying to cover all the corners to keep everyone posting and staying active and feel the love from the entire ecosystem! After reading this and his posts he has been making, i immediately changed my DDelegation​Screen Shot 20180907 at 1.45.20 PM.png
This iisn't​me bragging about delegating a certain amount​. I wish i could delegate more! (but i also need my own SP to upvote you guys!) Im just urging you all to go to @steem-ua and give what you can to this awesome project. At the bottom of all of their posts are quick links of 25, 50, 150, 250, 500 delegations. You just click on one and sign in to steem connect and accept and it delegates your steem power. Delegating SP is just a lending service, you can take back your Steem Power at any time and it'll​ be put right back into your account. I know in my posts i rant on and you probably struggle reading them. But realize this is a new step forward​ in the right direction!!

Im excited for what's​ to come with this account, and I'm​ proud to be part of the team!

I have delegated 50 SP to start but am open to delegating more after I see what it truly does and how it impacts engagement. I have always felt that newbies needs more attention and I am a proud supporter of @newbieresteemday and @newbiegames. You should check them out. There are some good new community supporters there.

I will be delegating 250sp later today to steem-ua.

awesome! yeah, i believe​ its all for a good cause! And i can't​ wait to see what the project is like a month or two down the road!

Yah, me too.

What is you true motivation behind the delegation of this project?

well we will see where it gets to down the road, but i would love to see more minnows and lower rep get a nice upvote for their posts to keep their motivation up. With powering up my steem i am investing in the steem platform, with smartsteem i am investing in myself, with Steem-UA i feel as i am investing in the new people of the platform. The goal from what i understand Steem-ua to be is to become a more active environment and interact with eachother! And im all about replying to some comments!

Please elaborate on investing in Smartsteem. Is this a bidbot? What is the minimum delegation and what is the ROI? Why did u delegate to them instead of other projects?

Smartsteem is a service where it uses your votes, and pays you for them. ROI is a ​return on investment. so if i invest 10Steem with a bot that has 10%ROI i should get 11Steem. And i delegate to smartsteem to use my votes while I'm​ away or busy at work and don't have time to use them and i delegate to smart-ua because i believe in the project!

I can understand the complaints of these people... sometimes it really is depressing, how much time and effort you put into Steem, and how little response you sometimes get. And response both in the sense of interaction as in the sense of payout. I have sent quite a few people towards Steem before, and all of them quit after a few weeks or months, all with the same complaint.
So, thanks for your initiative, and indeed, thank you @steem-ua !!!

Yeah, like I don't want my friends to sign up and then go straight back to Facebook. I want steem and steepshot and zappl to take over Facebook and Instagram and Twitter! I want everyone to connect and impact eachother!! I'm sorry you're having a rough time, I would say we all are! But I belive in this project right now and let's see what's gunna happen!!!

Indeed, that’s exactly what I want too! Have people see how things can be too, that Facebook is not the only option, not even by far the best option...
As for the rough time, indeed, we all are having the same time at the moment I believe ;-) But better days are coming!!!

they sure are! exciting things are ahead!

That is true on so many levels!!! ;-)

The concept of how delegators are rewarded by the steem-ua bot seems a cool approach; however the UA algorythm's results do not seem that different than the present reputation system to me.
