I think we all agree that the current reputation system kinda sucks. What? No? Cmon guys, it surely does...It is a number indicating the total amount of $ received for each user total payouts. Meaning that if you come across to a 70+ account you can easily understand that the sum of its total payouts is higher than an account with a reputation score of 63. Simple as that!
But it is also a number which can easily be manipulated since even if a new user with a new account, has a lot of money to spend on bid bots his reputation score can reach at a high reputation score, even if his potential payouts aren't organic (voted by other users)
So what? Who cares anyway...?
Well, up until now nobody actually did care. But as I said before since this number can easily be manipulated, there are suspicions that some users created new accounts, made a couple of posts and boosted those posts in order to achieve high payouts. Therefore their reputation score dramatically increased which had a result to claim more Byteball tokens during the last airdrop than they should have. So I guess we should care after all....
But we have a new sheriff in town...@steem-ua!
Just kidding...we haven't changed our sheriff...
Now unless you've been living in a cave or something @steem-ua is probably what was missing from this platform. It is a very complex algorithm developed by @scipio and @holger80 and it is a totally new metric for reputation score.
In essence, UA can be seen as a new Reputation metric: it looks at the entire Steem Follower Graph and carefully tracks who follows who. It doesn't directly care about how "rich" an account is, or how old it is, or how much an account has posted, but please keep in mind that those factors do indeed indirectly influence any account's UA score.
That being said, someone can easily distinct if an account is real or if it's a bot account. So this algorithm calculates all the above parameters (I think that they will also add the comment activity in the equation) and provides a unique number for every user known as UA score and everyone can see theirs if you visit their site You can also read their introduction post if you haven't already.
Mine looks like this...
I've delegated to @steem-ua 2.500 SP and here's why.
I think there are amazing apps built on the steem block chain like @Dtube, @Dlive, @Steepshot, etc but what these guys achieved with @steem-ua will definitely push Steemit / steem, one step forward. It is also a way to fight abuse and their partnership with @utopian-io makes a really powerful combination!
As we speak they have managed to receive almost 185.000 SP from active users in just a few days. And since members like @cryptoctopus @stellabelle @neoxian @ausbitbank @elear @jaki01 (just to name a few) trust their stake to these guys, indicates that this is a really powerful tool. Hard work eventually pays off. Well deserved guys!! It is the first time I decided to delegate part of my stake and I actually did it without second thoughts.
At this point I want to mention that anyone can delegate their SP starting from just 25SP even though there are some benefits for those who delegate to @steem-ua I decided to delegate 2500 SP because I want this program to succeed. It would be amazing to see them receive a fat delegation and spread love to everyone who deserves it on this platform.
You can also talk to them on Discord where they'll happily answer to all the questions you may have.
Thanks for your time!

PS. A resteem would be highly appreciated. The more people know about @steem-ua the better!
