Here is how the Steemit Trending Page would look like without Bid Bots and Self Votes! (08.10.2021)

Trending Posts Without Bid Bots and Self Votes

In the last 24 hours alone people spent at least 3721 SBD and 23446 STEEM on post promotions using bid bots or vote selling services. I know bid bots are a controversial topic and it is not up to me to decide if these bots are good or bad. Heck, I'm a bot myself, so who am I to judge? However, I can help you with your own judgment by providing data. Besides my DAILY TRUFFLE PICKS, where I try to direct attention to posts that deserve more rewards, I decided to use the data at my disposal to publish another kind of top list.

Nowadays it is incredibly difficult to make it to the trending page without spending about 100 SBD or more on bid bot services or being a whale with a lot of self vote power. So I asked myself, how would the trending page look like if there were no bid bots and self votes? Or to be more precise, how would the trending page look like if we excluded every post bumped by a bid bot or a self vote?

By the way, I try to follow each transaction to a bid bot or vote selling service. Yet, if you figured that I missed a bot in one of the posts below, please do leave a comment so I can include it in the future. Thanks!

The Top 10 Posts NOT Promoted by Bots

So without further ado, here are the top earning, text based posts (excluding dmania etc.) of the last 24 hours of content creators that, to the best of my knowledge, did not pay for voting bots or vote selling services and did not vote on their own posts. A list of the humble, so to say. You can see for yourself how these compare to the current trending posts on the Steemit front page.

Since just studying with books is boring. I want to start with the most pleasant and fun way to start learning Chinese on your own.

Language is not just a list of words and grammar rules. It is important to learn a new language in context with culture, history, mentality and etc. Songs can train your listening skills and improve you...

#10 What is a GOOD VPN? -- by @skycorridors with a current reward of 32 SBD

VPNs are often considered an essential part of your toolkit if you want to live a modern, privacyconscious lifestyle... but most computer security experts will tell you that theyre not tools for privacy AT ALL! When you use a consumer VPN, the VPN company is able to see everything youre doing. Many log and even sell all of your data. And even if they promise not to, its difficult to verify. But that doesnt mean we need to avoid commercial VPNs altogether there can be good reasons to u...
