WHO WAS IT FOR?
Maximum vote time.
- Well we were 1st told that the vote window was going to change from 15 mins to 1 min. This was not true, they actual window is 5 mins. Why was this even changed? Maybe the elite didn't want to wait around the extra 10 mins to vote?
WHAT IS YOU VOTE WORTH?
- Now this is where it gets a little tricky. You see no steem based app is the same, steemnow will show you one thing, steemworld will show something different, and steemd, well you guessed it, shows something different as well. Why is this? Well brace yourself cause the rabbit hole is deep. You see your steem power is not worth what is was before the HF 21. The current rewards is set up on a 20 steem payout. Meaning that the only way for you to recieve maximum vote vlaue is to have a post that is valued at 20 steem or more. This is way to advance for me to explain how or why they would do this. Maybe it was to keep the abuse down, maybe it was a way to get steemians to power up more. Or maybe it was just away to keep the elite small and powerful.
- You have always known it to be 75%-25% meaning the author would get 75% of the rewards and the curators would get 25%. Well Now its 50%-50%. Now for the small curators you probably wont be able to tell a difference but to you elites, big payday for all of you. For the autors this will hurt you the most, unless you have some elite friends. Either way this change has diffently been made to benefit the curator's.
- I get it but don't. I mean yes there are steemians that abuse the rewards pool. There are also steemians that do not get rewarded enough. One of the great things about steemit is you are free to do, say, post, curate what ever you want. For some the new downvote pool will be abused. A lot of steemians say this was for bid bot users and to control steemians from promoting shitpost. Some steemians use bid bots on quality post. You see we already have steemians downvoting every post that uses a bidbot, they dont actually read your post and make a conscious decision to downvote, nope its just because you used a bidbot.
For all you curators out there, this post will use a bid bot, either like it or downvote it! Either way I am gonna keep hammering along.
