After weeks of development, it is my pleasure to announce yet another service offered by streemian.com.
- RSS feeds and
- Automatic Cross-Posting for RSS-Blogs and Reddit
already functional and running smoothly so far, we now created
Follow the Operator
This service lets you follow so called operators and support their votes with voting power. For those familiar with proxy voting from BitShares: This is the same thing, except:
- You can follow up to 5 operators
- You only proxy your voting power for posts, not witnesses
Follow the Operators
What's in for the operator
Operators that have a big crowd of agents behind them can benefit from their upvotes because they can be sure that their agents will upvote this particular post as well. Being among the first to identify great content will leave you with a higher rewards.
Note, since agents are notified over each vote of their operator, misusing this power will eventually result in agents leaving the operators behind.
What's in for the agents?
Agents provide the operators with voting power but they don't need to to this explicitly. Instead, Streemian.com automates this for the agent. This means, you can easily give your voting power to operators across the world that spot great posts posted in any time zone, even while you sleep. Since basic agents upvote posts in a random order, you will probably vote for content before others do. The better operators you pick, the more you can gain from lending your voting power.
Note, you can leave an operator at any time and follow up to 5 operators.
Why do I need to prepare my account?
Usually, new accounts on Steem come with very restricted permissions that prevent anyone from misusing your STEEM account. Only you control your account. However, Streemian.com requires posting/voting permissions to serve you. For this reasons, your account needs a special form. Either you add the
streemian user to your posting permissions if you already have an account, or you let Streemian.com create a properly formatted account for you. Only then will we be able to posting and vote on your behalf. Note: You will always have exclusive control over your funds, unless explicitly granted to streemian.com. Furthermore, you can opt-out of this feature at any time without asking for permission!
Where do I get an invitation
Just ask in the #streemian channel on slack and either ask
@xeroc for an invite or find someone how can invite your to streemian.com.
Every user has up to 10 invites to bring in friends and family.
Since we currently require users to have a
cli_wallet running and to fix some minor bugs, we currently require an invitation. If you do not have a
cli_wallet installed, please refrain from asking for an invitation just yet. We are working on solutions to make this process easier for people but we are not there yet. Thanks for your understanding!
