Here is how the Steemit Trending Page would look like without Bid Bots and Self Votes! (28.10.2021)

Trending Posts Without Bid Bots and Self Votes

In the last 24 hours alone people spent at least 4381 SBD and 43707 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.

#1 The Dolphin Challenge can we reach 1500 by the end of the year ? -- by @pennsif with a current reward of 72 SBD

classpullright Dolphins are very important on Steem. If you reach the 5,000 SP needed to become a Dolphin it is a sign of commitment to the platform. Dolphin status also gives you a worthwhile vote currently 0.10 to help others in community. So increasing the number of Dolphins is a strong sign of progress for the platform. With Steemits new club5050 initiative rewarding those powering up, this seems like an ideal time to be growing Dolphins. Back in Old Steem before the split, ther...
