After re-reading the post that I wrote yesterday, I realized that I missed a pretty big opportunity to explain WHY everyone, should delegate at least 25SP to the project.
So I decided to sit down and make the case for why, without question, it's in everyone's best interest to do so. Just before I forget, here are the quick links to delegate to the steem-ua project:
|25 SP||50 SP||100SP||250SP|
Get Upvoted by @Steem-UA
Steem-UA is a curation service that uses the User Authority algorithm to upvote content. In order to receive an upvote from them, you must register to it through a delegation of at least 25 SteemPower.
The promise of UA is that it is good at recognizing authentic writers and quality content...but in order to prove it, it needs to have the maximum of user registered to it.
Once you are registered, you will get an upvote based on your UA Score(find yours here). The higher your score, the higher the upvote you will receive. The amount of SP that you delegate doesn't impact the percentage of the upvote you will receive, only how many times per week it will upvote your content.
|SP Delegation||Sponsor Benefits & Upvote Frequency|
|25 SP||max. 1 @steem-ua upvote per week|
|50 SP||max. 2 @steem-ua upvotes per week|
|100 SP||max. 4 @steem-ua upvotes per week|
|250 SP||max. 7 @steem-ua upvotes per week|
|>= 5,000 SP||Stake-Based Sponsor Rewards + max. 7 @steem-ua upvotes per week|
How to Increase Your UA
The first step is to delegate, the next is to increase your UA. UA is tough to game since it's much more than the raw amount of followers that you have...it's also WHO is following the people that follows you as well as a number of correction to prevent abuse by bots.
Your best bet to increase your UA is:
- Keep engaging with the community
- Create great content people want to follow
- Add value by creating some sort of community, app, events, etc.
- Run for witness
- Network on the steem.chat and the Steem-UA discord
It seems that certain front-end such as @steempeak are considering the idea of using UA to generate a trending page that is not based on upvote $ alone. By using and engaging on these platforms you will get a better experience as well as better visibility if you are focusing on increasing your own UA. Follow @Steem-UA to know when these projects come into fruition.
I sure hope the whoever you are, you will consider delegating to @steem-ua, even if it's only 25SP. Not only you will get upvotes in return that might exceed your investment but you will also participate in something that might partially solve the issues that Steem faces.
