The Pot of STEEM #1steemCreated with Sketch.

in steemit •  2 years ago

Welcome to The Pot of STEEM !

The idea is to give the gift of STEEM to the ones in need ;)

The rules are simple:

  1. Send a tip of no less than 35 STEEM to The Pot of STEEM ( @tpos ).
  2. Every friday the pot will pay equal amounts of STEEM to every participant.

All tips below 35 STEEM will be treated as donations and senders won't get any payout.

Check the transfers and pot's current balance here or ask the nice robot by replying with:

tpos:POT_BALANCE


Have fun :)

The Pot of STEEM was created by @murh,
and it's idea has derived from @craig-grant's "
Bitcoin Pot Of Gold" post.

2017.02.12 18:05:22 [CEST]: pot's current balance is 1026.974 STEEM

Question: not sure if i will enter yet or not , but how do i tip people anyways !? Thanks ! Sounds like a great idea !💙👍😉

·

Thanks! :)

As for how it works - You'll tip the pot by sending STEEM to it's wallet @tpos and at the end of the week the pot will send back a share of it's whole wallet's balance to all of the participants. The share will be calculated by dividing the pot's balance by number of participants.

Everyone who sends 35 STEEM or more is considered a participant, while everyone who sends less will just donate to the pot's balance increasing the "pool" and every participant's payout.

For example if 100 people sends STEEM to the pot it can have 3 outcomes:

  1. If all send just the minimum of 35 STEEM then everyone gets 35 STEEM back at the end of the week.
  2. If half of them sends only the minimum 35 STEEM and the other half sends 70 STEEM then the total balance is 5250 STEEM and everyone gets 52.5 STEEM back.
  3. If half sends the minimum 35 STEEM, a quarter sends 70 STEEM and the remaining quarter sends only 34 STEEM. The balance is 4350 STEEM but this time it's only divided between 75 people which means that every participant gets 58 STEEM.

Hope I didn't make it more complicated by trying to explain ;)

Interesting initiative, congrats!

No tips yet on https://steemit.com/@tpos/transfers? Maybe you should be the first? :)

I don't have any Steem in my wallet at the time. If I collect enough by the end of the pot's time period I might chip in the 35 Steem.

Followed and appreciated on my Steemit Appreciation Friday No. 5 post. Thank you!

This post has been ranked within the top 80 most undervalued posts in the first half of Feb 10. We estimate that this post is undervalued by $3.14 as compared to a scenario in which every voter had an equal say.

Theres already more than 70 STEEM and only 2 people so far.. so if anyone just puts in at least 35 STEEM you'll get MORE than that back :D

Ok, the first payout will be next Friday the 17th? I'm in! Will be sending on over STEEM in a bit ;)

·

Yes on next friday ;)

·
·

Sdz gd to me! I will def be in and just to make sure, we can add STEEM to the p0t anytime during the week, correct? Even on the day before payout?
Thank y0u Craig and Murh ;)

Pot 0f Bitcoin AND P0t 0f STEEM ;)
We will soon need a p0t 0f Burst ;)

·

There's nothing in the way ;)

[UPDATE!]
TPOSbot v0.0.1 is here ;)

Only one command is available at this point but I'll expand it's abilities over time.

To ask the bot about pot's current balance write a comment containing this sequence:

OK ;)

I'm going to give this a try. Sounds like fun. If it works out I'll give @craig-grant's "Bitcoin Pot Of Gold" a try.

·

Just seen seen Craigs latest post. Bitcoin Pot Of Gold is dead for now.

should do payouts 3 times per week to build trust and raise excitement, a 7 days pot is too long to wait and is scary cause you can run away with 7 days worth of steem in the pot. A great way to build and maintain trust is doing 3 to 4 payments per week, plus most who get paid will do it again with higher amounts of steem.

tpos:ask:balance :)

·

I think you're right but I'm not sure that changing the rules while it's running will build trust either ...

3 times a week would be fine I think - 1st starts monday pays wednesday ... 2nd starts wednesday pays friday ... 3rd starts friday and pays sunday ... We could start it now by moving first payout from 17th to the 12th ...

Btw. the bot is temporarily dead because I'm reinstalling my server this weekend ... should be back on sunday or monday if everything will go as planned.

·
·

do no specify when the payout will be. The rules would say "3 to 4 times per week" and you choose the time during the week, the payout being unpredictable makes it more fun and takes you off a schedule. The pot has just started so changing the rules for faster payout is a great change, not something anyone would complain about.

·
·
·

Make it a Radom pick of 3 to 4 times a week. If murh picks the day, people might wander if he is gaming the system.

·
·
·
·

a human being has to pick the payout time if it's not a smart contract, and right now the pot has a human being, @murh will have to pick the payout time until a smart contract is developed

·
·
·
·

anyone who put the minimum of 35 steem is gaming the pot, as they are guaranteed to get back more than they put in, it's all on the blockchain, no need for anyone to be suspicious of what anyone else is doing, it's there for everyone to see

·
·
·
·
·

Sounds good.

·
·
·
·
·

yeah with the names attached it makes it much more interesting as you said in one of you videos about comparing the two pots. I like that we can see those trying to scrape every penny haha .

·
·
·
·
·

Being the first run, people might be putting in 35 steem to test it out. Look what happened with the bitcoin pot. You never know. I'll increace mine every week until i find the brake even point.

·
·
·

I'm really short on time right now so I'll probably pick some day in the beggining of next week for the first payout and annoucement of the new rules ... and then a random payout 3-4 times per week ...

The best case would be the TPOSbot picking a random date and making payouts ... but that'll take some work and even more testing ... maybe if I'll find the time ...

I agree with Craig that it'll be more dynamic with more frequent payouts and more interesting with random ones ...

When is the payout?

·

It was supposed to be on the 17th (friday) but will be sooner ... I'm rethinking some rules etc. ... for sure the payouts will be now more frequent - most likely every 2-3 days ...
