About half a year ago I created the idea of the 1UP hivemind solution to reward quality posts with the Proof-of-Brain of the masses. The problem with the Steem system is that Proof-of-Stake requires the user to have Steem Power to make a difference with their vote. using the 1UP system overcomes that hurdle by giving everyone the same voice and let the community decide what deserves more attention and upvotes.
With the help of @stoodkev we build this system for the Utopian.io platform. We started there because they offer a whale upvote which made the trail super profitable. But it was optimized for this niche platform and not open to the all Steemians. This is going to change with 1UP 2.0 and the new open community system.
With the help of @kennyskitchen we can make sure that the @tribesteemup community will demonstrate the mighty power of what 1UP can do to the Steem blockchain. I honestly believe that we are creating the most effective curation system ever developed on Steem.
