Some mysterious bot-voting accounts on Steem

in steempress •  2 months ago


Have you ever wondered about those bot-voting accounts such as @alexis555, @newhope, @redes@ripperone, @mangos?


Don't get me wrong, I always believe that you should be able to freely use your stake on Steem, I'm making this post only because I think these accounts are so interesting.

They are all at 25 rep, never seem to post about anything, yet holding relatively huge amount of SP (100k-ish). They are voting 24 hours, so 99% they are bot voting. 

I took a look at how they vote and notice that they are following account with a guaranteed bigger upcoming votes and they vote before that. That makes sense, that's how curation reward works. 

So technically, if you are constantly buying similar amount of votes, you will probably get their votes too, I've never been a big fan of buying votes myself, so it's just my guess. Probably they calculate the historical data of the average amount you get from "smaller whales", they don't seem to follow bigger whales' votes, as curation rewards can be actually lower.

They are probably crypto investors who got on Steem because they want somet crypto that they can actually use, such as Steem that they can use their stake to vote?

 

What do you think?

 


 

玩Steem这么长时间,以避免产生厌倦感,适当八卦还是很有好处的 <(* ̄▽ ̄*)/

不知道你们有没有注意过一些很有意思的账号,比如 @alexis555, @newhope, @redes, @ripperone, @mangos

为什么说这些账号有意思呢?他们都是25级别,没有任何头像,从来不写文章甚至不写回复,但是持有100k甚至以上的SP,他们投票都是24/7,所以猜想应该是机器人点赞。但是据我观察,他们没有特别的名单。或者有名单但是不是所以的投票都按照名单上面的人来。

不知道这些账号是不是来自同一个主人,但是投票习惯很像,目测是动态计算某个账号得到投票的规律,如果一个账号经常会得到大的投票,这些机器人就会抢先投票,但是好像他们不去一些非常热门的账号那里,大多是跟在一些小鲸前面点,还是很聪明的!

我注意到有些人如果经常买小赞,这些机器人会被点,但是我自己不是很喜欢买赞,已经几个月没有买过赞,所以无法具体现身说法。我猜如果他们不是Steem公司的账号,那他们就是数字货币投资人,大部分都是空气币,所以他们想顺便投资一个可以用的币,在Steem可以投票,多有意思啊。

你们有没有曾经得到过这些机器人的赞呢?

I think there are all sort of people out there. Personally, I think we should thank these people as I view them as investors of STEEM. Unlike those who hold STEEM passively, they actively contribute by upvoting other Steemians. Haha..

·

Yeah, they are better than nothing I guess. I accidentally got their votes once in a while.

·
·

Yes people are very happy when receiving their votes. 👍

I really like these bots, they are helping the community a lot and they are doing great work. 👏👍

·

You got those bots often?

·
·

Yes, but this is not the only reason why I like them. They also voted for friends posts very often in the past and its very motivating to receive these votes. Without these bots the current rewards would be very sad and more Steemians would stop to be active in the moment. I think they are really doing good work for the community. 👌

Fair enough if they're investors. At least they're not raping the reward pool if and they help some Steemians I'm fine with that. They drop by occassionally, but they're welcome anytime!

·

Exactly. They dropped quite often long time ago on CN’s better days. Lol

哈哈哈 有意思 大鲸鱼身边的确围绕着很多小鱼

joy你很細心欸!這都能發現到~

今天刚好想到这几个账号觉得挺有意思的

你好吗?客官渴不渴,有没有去 @laodr 老道茶馆喝口热茶啊?假如我的留言打扰到你,请回复“取消”。

I think they bring very little to the platform unfortunately. No creativity, no originality, just here to harvest a few bucks... and I guess that with the appropriate technical skills you can set up a lot of them and make it big... But they are killing Steemit.

·

But people are happy when receiving votes of them. Why should this be bad for Steemit? We have a big whale problem in the moment and without these bots the problem would be even bigger...

·

Yea, exactly, like the voting bots are not enough to ruin Steem...

If I remember correctly, I have received a vote from @alexis555 @redes @mangos @newhope. I do not know the rule. It is mystery. I am very interested in this subject.

I resteemed this article.

·

Thanks Yasu, I'm happy for you. If they vote for you and motivate you, then they are good bots :D

·
·

Yes I think so too, these bots are motivating people. 👍

Thanks for shedding some light on these guys Joy! I've been enjoying their up-votes for some time. I just thought they liked my work! lol Guess they just like the curation rewards they get, which is fine by me.

Sorry I haven't been around, been busy enjoying my travels and spending time with my new Ukrainain Girlfriend. But things are coming into balance now, so, hopefully I'll be able to swing by your blog more often.

These are good whales. They vote well. I do not know their logic but their presence is silently good. Better than other whales that make posts unwatchable and receive many votes. At least they help so many users without asking for anything in return. I appreciate them a lot!

·

Indeed. They only get curation rewards without farming the pool.

Posted using Partiko iOS

They are bots which are owned by some mysterious individuals who knows coding and have the money to use their stake instead of social blogging.

·

Yea. At least they are voting, without draining the pool.

Posted using Partiko iOS

yes. they have been indeed supprtive and havr upvoted my posts several times. really obliged. at least they care for good talented users on steemit and boost their morale by upvoting.

·

Yea, as long as they keep my steemit friend motivated, they are nice bots :)

Posted using Partiko iOS

Thats very interesting so they're just using a small exploit to earn some sort of passive income through curation rewards. Doesn't seem that harmful to me though since they still contributing to authors on steemit getting more of the reward pool

·

No, not at all. They are kinda nice actually.

Posted using Partiko iOS

@joythewanderer if i noticed it correctly these are basically bot account maintained by some whales/ dolphins. Once they notice some regular post / content they include their user name into the bot and sometime they vote unintentionally. I have received twice in last 15 days from differnt account i do not see as big bot player. Still voted my content.

·

I believe so. I barely got those though. Whats your trick? :p

·

No trick.👍.it was surprise element when comes in my post. 😇But yes at the same time i agree that they do follow certain bot users account to earn curation. ....

没有呢,我最近还被机器人踩了,还好对方才25,影响不大~
