Previous first place winner - Why I think 99% of Steemians get the WRONG ideas about curation rewards by @htliao
Author @htliao blogs about travel, food, cryptocurrency and drawing, in his latest post he gives us some great insights into curation rewards on Steem and how the "bandwagon pile-on effect" doesn't benefit anyone because curation rewards are being distribited between so many voters that you are actually better off voting for lower value content and being one of a lessor set of curators all sharing a bigger stake in the smaller value post, the results he shows are quite staggering, this post is truely an eye-opener.
Previous runner-up - Color challenge.. wednesday : skyblue...!! by @naseerbhat
Now on to today's nominations...
The "Nominate-a-Friend" Steemvoter (SV) Guild program.
So how does it work? Simple ... reply with a comment to this post with the link to another Steemian's post you think deserves the daily Steemvoter guild upvote, you are welcome to motivate in the reply why you think they deserve it.
The reply with the highest upvote $ value will be the winner and the post nominated in that reply will receive the guild upvote, which as you may have seen from previous posts, is a generous upvote from over 500 guild members, giving $100 dollars or more to the author depending on starting value.
Please make sure your nomination follows these guidelines:
Two Winner Trial Test
We are currently voting the top two winning nominations at an equal vote weight each.
You cannot submit your own post or that of your other related accounts that you own or share ownership in, if you are found or reported to do this and substantially verified, your and your related accounts will be blacklisted from future guild vote eligibility.
No religious, NSFW, racist, trolling, fake news or inappropriate posts will be considered, in which case runner's up will be selected. @steemvoter has the final word as to which post is selected for the daily vote.
We will not vote the same author in a seven-day window.
Cut-off time: We will choose the highest value comment nomination within 48 hours of this post becoming active. Please only submit posts that are still within their 7 day voting window, and allow enough time for the guild vote to be done before their payout window closes.
This is not about curation rewards for the guild members and getting in early on the vote etc, it is purely to reward the deserving author.
@steemvoter will consider this a free market experiment and we will facilitate the voting of the post that the community wants voted, without checking for PLG of content, photos and artwork. At our discretion, blatantly inappropriate posts will not be voted on however.
This is a beta guild project and terms are subject to change at any time.
Let's make Steem great ... together!!
