All STEEM and SBD earned from the upvotes to this post will be used to buy a Steem Monsters starter pack. This is the second post of my #upfundme campaign to gather STEEM/SBD to buy the starter pack. For more details about how I intend to go about this, read the first post.

I was surprised because this week the SBD print rate reached 0%, which means our payouts are giving only STEEM and no SBD! If you don't know what this is all about, you can read this post by Themarkymark that does a nice job of explaining it.
The result is that the first post paid out, and I received $0.178 STEEM (no SBD). I traded the STEEM on the internal market for $0.172 SBD. I've transferred the gathered amount to my savings account to keep it separate from my normal STEEM/SBD. So, now we have:
- Target: $5 USD ($5.027 SBD according to the current price on the Steemmonsters.com site, after the huge fall the STEEM and SBD prices took this week).
- Amount gathered so far: $0.172 SBD
- Amount still required: $4.855 SBD
Still a long way to go, but this was only the first week. There are still a few weeks left!
Thank you to everyone who upvoted the first post, and thank you in advance to whoever upvotes this one!
