Today I just wanted to share the news from the new #esoteric community that we are co-creating as a 1UP starting community.
1UP is a new community upvoting system being built on the STEEM blockchain. Unlike the current STEEM voting model, which is based on vote weight, on the 1UP platform all user votes are equal. Users can upvote within any of the Steem communities that have been added to the 1UP platform. The 1UP application is due to launch in October.
Effectively, it is creating an extra level of rewards for quality content, as well as enhanced curation rewards!
Last week, we began three esoteric contests for content creators and we are airdropping 1 MILLION UP tokens (the SMT cryptocurrency that will drive the 1UP platform) as part of them.
In this video, I announced the winners of the week one contests and you can also find further details in my blog from yesterday here:
There are still nine weeks to enter your esoteric content, memes and graphics and visionary art into the contests (details in the post linked above) and have an early chance to receive UP tokens, as well as potential significant upvotes (see the update for details on this).
We'd also love you to join the 1UP Discord group, where you will find details of this airdrop and the ones for the other 1UP starting communities. These include #dtube, #steemmonsters and #fundition. The Discord Link is - https://discord.gg/S5nQnxp
Let's see your weird and wonderful content and keep the #esoteric tag buzzing!
