Thoughts about themarkymark

in #themarkymark3 years ago (edited)

Themarkymark is serious about STEEM.
He either bought into it or is a preminer whom secretly transferred his STEEM, via an exchange account, from one of the secretive and private preminer accounts, to his more public account.
He is the most responsive witness that I encountered.
He obviously benefits out of STEEM:
Author rewards, curation rewards, comment_benefactor_rewards (from steemflagrewards, a group he uses to comment farm while downvoting others) and producer rewards from his hustle as a witness.
I also noticed 2 more sources to his STEEM fortune:

  1. bidding against his customers during the early days of buildawhale, and possibly later too, and possibly in upmyvote too.
  2. A surprise (without a warning) unilateral retroactive confiscation of people's money in buildawhale, once he deemed their content as low quality.

I believe that his financial benefits off STEEM surpass what is recorded on the blockchain, because he is so serious, dedicated, versatile in his STEEM activity, and because he had quite a fortune to begin with in order to put it into STEEM and to finance his not so successful campaign as a witness.
To run witness nodes as his, costs Federal Reserve dollars, and these dollars he mostly gets from resources other than selling his STEEM and SBDs.
The question that rises is: what pays for his living costs and STEEM witnessing costs?
Social security does not pay enough for his level of STEEM activity.
He seems to treat STEEM as a job, so it may be a job for him, and he is paid by some entity.
He may be some entrepreneur whom earns "passive income" from some businesses, and whom can allow himself to treat his STEEM hobby so serious, that it became his "nine to five" job, with added extra hours.
Did he ever elaborate about his businesses?
AFAIK, he did not.
Keeps his businesses private.
Why so? And what pays for his activity?
Why not ipromote those businesses, since he can?

Sort:  

He’s a well known actor.. haven’t you seen firefly? I thought that how he got his money was pretty clear... actors make a ton of money....

They make far more if their series aren't cut short far too early

You forgot my advise on votes.

"You forgot my advise on votes."

Steemit is too difficult for simple folks like me.

Too difficult for me too, despite being here almost non-stop for over 18 months.
Some basic activities require programming skills.
I need to update my advise to you, because if you upvote yourself with low power immediately, un-vote later and then upvote with full force, it seems that you still lose curation rewards by doing so.
You need to do it with a different account, and there are even clumsier solutions, but they work for sure, even if riskier and costlier.
Have you registered to trybe.one already or know about other alternatives?

I am getting out of Steemit, just waiting for an uptick, so that I can sell all of it for NEO and ADA.

What's the use of Steemit?

You can just as well post on Youtube videos. Choice enough.

Here you can't even see how many people have watched your post. And on top of it, if you criticize big guys for them harassing others by downvoting or spamming others posts while the content is ok or even HQ, they turn against you and you become their next target.

No point on staying in this asocial media time sink and waisting effort and money for nothing.

Life is too short to spend it on a loosing game.

I mostly agree.
Regarding waiting for the uptick, steem goes down while you wait for it, and will probably go down even more.
It will rise in some moment in the future, but who knows how much more downside it has until then, and if it will even get to the current price after that rise, and even then it will resume its down trend, just because its inflation rate will still be over 8% and will always be at least 0.5%.

I am not trying to convince you to buy trybe.one's currency.
I believe that it is freemium too, or whatever it is called.
You get 100 units of its currency for free just by registering, and in December there will be an airdrop for holders of its currency, which you can get for free, if you register there with a valid EOS wallet address.
What I wrote to you about trybe.one may be wrong, and I am currently not registered myself, but I may do it soon, because December will come in less than 3 weeks from now, and with it an opportunity to benefit from the airdrop.

!popcorn is his business!

Sure, in any case is a very interesting user, he is in the Top30 witness without be voted by freedom.

Posted using Partiko Android

Based on what do you write that he is a top 20?
He is at #29 for quite a while.
Top 20 are #1-#20.
#21 is already outside of the top 20, as 21 is the 21st number and bigger than 20.

Sure! Sorry for my mistake
