STEEM In 2nd Place In Netcoins Contest Following Removal Of Invalid Votes

in stemit •  4 months ago

Being honest pays off. Always. Although the temptation to take a shortcut (even for "a good cause") may arise from time to time, staying on the right course is always, always, always the best way forward.

Let's look at the Netcoins contest. If you don't know what this contest is about, well, it's about including another crypto asset in Netcoins' portfolio, which means this asset will be promoted across a wide retailers audience, which may start to accept payments in it. This will obviously snowball into more demand for the asset, which, in turn, will positively affect the price. The contest is simply a voting procedure, with a few basic rules.

I already wrote about this, here and here.

As I was going to cast my vote again today (you can vote every 24 hours) I saw this announcement on Netcoins page:

I have no info at this moment about any of the communities behind the assets cheating, but the mere fact that there is an announcement about that implies there is something going on.

And seeing that STEEM actually climbed 2 positions, being now second after PAC, means the fraudulent votes weren't removed from it, but from other assets.

So, once again, remember to vote and support this responsibly and correctly.

Cast your vote every 24 hours, spread the word, activate your friends and followers, write content about it, resteem content about it and make sure we're pushing STEEM higher not by casting fake votes, but by the sheer power of this community.

Steem on!

They have 30k daily volume. They are cheating.

at this time only 300 votes behind lets do it steemians :)

We can do this, let support steem with our vote

Got my vote in.

So, once again, remember to vote and support this responsibly and correctly.

In Chicago, the saying is vote early, vote often. ha ha

Steem is catching up fast...Is it because of @ned's appeal for vote???

800 votes to go!

We are about 800 votes away from number 1. Come on guys.

Voting is so simple and we are all going to benefit.


I think people are having fun with mobilizing around this during the somewhat low point of activity. Getting listed on more exchanges is very helpful to increasing STEEM's chance of a powerful network effect occurring.

now let's just climb to the top :)

WOW...Steem in top 2. VERGE Was at 2nd place and seems like got penalized.

Alright, let's do this.

I'm not sure how you would cast additional votes. The timer doesn't allow a spot to vote until it has expired, right? Maybe other communities were using fake emails or something to collect more votes.

Ohhh that is a scary message. Let's see where all the dodgy people get together lol let's hope it is not on steem eheheh

Second vote cast!

@dragosroua You have received a 100% upvote from because this post did not use any bidbots and you have not used bidbots in the last 30 days!

Upvoting this comment will help keep this service running.

Steem hopefully wins this one.

Let steem reach the moon

@dragosroua I have a question? If we are a million users why such low level of votes???


Ah! @justinomora. Simply because when we talk about millions on the Steem blockchain, as soon as we surpass the level of six figures, the math start to not be so clear. };)


voted for steem :)
every 24 hours !
