Added RPC node redundancy!

Hello everyone, the time has come to announce that I've finally been able to add RPC node redundancy! As of now it has a list of 10 RPC nodes that are checked every 5 minutes for if one is to fail. The bot still runs on a streaming service rather than account history(Will be added to next update coming very soon) so there will still be one or two missed transactions, but now we can guarantee that the service will not ever shutdown for long periods of time. If an RPC node goes down that it's using, it'll(almost) instantly switch to another node that was confirmed working every single 5 minutes.
This means that there'll be a slim chance of any transactions being missed, and if there is downtime, that downtime will be last momentarily.
As I mention more often than I should, if a transaction is missed, please email me so I can provide a refund.

Adjusted rates

Adjusted STEEM price back up to 2x as the price has changed dramatically again giving 2x a 2.2x profit.

Future updates

Add redundancy to RPC nodes ---- Complete!

redesign bot to work with account history (Almost complete)
Calculate upvote worth automatically
Allow busy.org links (Almost fixed)
Allow comments in memo with link (Almost fixed)
Allow links with "#comments" at the end (Almost fixed)
Fix issue with bot get stuck when voting power goes under 70%.
Refund payments for posts older than 6 days.

Hey there, I transferred 1SBD two days ago and didn't receive an upvote. The post has paid out already. Could you refund the amount or transfer to my newest post?
Thanks!

Upvoted your comments with 2.16 SBD.
Thanks for your support.

Hello, you said100% upvote gives 12.20sbd upvote, but i got 7.3sbd upvote which is not even even up to the ×2.1

Here is the link to the post
https://steemit.com/ndjt/@hillstech/ndjt-episode-two-teasing-you-left-right-front-back-and-center

At the time of creating this post, yes. 100% upvote (With 100% voting power) gave 12.20 SBD.
The most up to date info in on my profile. I specify min/max send amount and what 100% voting power is worth. Remember that voting power also changes how much my upvote is worth.
I upvoted your post, so now in total you've received 10.20 SBD in return. Well above the 2.1x.

Please in the future be aware of such things.
Thanks again for your support.

does comment voting work or is not yet working yet?

As of right now, only steemit.com links are accepted as memo, no comments, no "#comments" at the end of the link, only the actual steemit link.
Although you can get comments upvoted, it requires some tinkering though. Check out the following link for more info.
https://steemit.com/upvote/@upvotewhale/accepting-comment-upvotes-now

An example to get your post upvoted would be the following:
Link to your comment:
https://steemit.com/upvote/@upvotewhale/node-redundancy-complete#@sames/re-upvotewhale-node-redundancy-complete-20180129t231336573z

Remove the following:
upvote/@upvotewhale/node-redundancy-complete#

Link to send as memo to have comment upvoted:

Hi, how do I send SBP from Steemit on my mobile. Thank you :-)

I sent 0.05BHP via blocktrades and SteemConnect. Can you confirm you received it ok, thank you. And also how long is it currently until the next upvote?

Memo:
https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@innervision/crypto-currency-trading-accounts-are-selling-for-thousands-of-dollars

Hello innvervision.
Please in the future only send payments from your personal account as payments from places like Bittrex, blocktrades or tipping bots can cause problems. In this case there was an infinite loop of transactions created.
I have however upvoted the post for you.

Thank you for your continued support.

I would support but I keep getting refunded lol.

Hello,
Check the payment received. If it says "Low voting power" Then you were refunded as I am regenerating voting power. If you were refunded with any other message, more than likely you made a mistake somewhere.

I can not get busy deny votes?
will my sentiments be returned?

Hello,
Please check your payments, Each and every one looks to be refunded within 30 seconds of receiving payment. If any are missing please let me know payment account and link.

It has been 14 minutes since I sent 0.500 SBD to @upvotewhale. it's the first time I've used it. Did I do something wrong? On bottracker is says the upvote is instant.

I notice someone in an earlier comment said they sent 0.500 by mistake. Did I send too much? If so can you refund me please. Thanks!

Hello Gillian,
The post is older than 6 days and 12 hours, which then causes the bot to crash when it tries to upvote as steemit does not allow upvotes past that time.
You can send between 0.01 and 4 SBD/STEEM, and upvote should arrive in less than 30 seconds. If upvote is not received within 30 seconds then something has gone wrong and you can send me an email so I can fix it.
Thank you for your support!

Oh. OK. Thanks. Did trealise it had to be younger than that. Will try again with a post that's not so old!

it's been 8 hours yet I haven't received any vote for 0.030SBD. and the post went 7 days. I'd like to have it on another post or comment if possible.
thanks

Hello,
You did not receive an upvote because the post was too old. Please make sure the post is less than 6 days so this does not happen in the future.
Refund provided.

Hello hussnain.

Hi there, I sent 4 SBD and a link to https://steemit.com/food/@armadillocreek/the-best-cookie-ever-the-simply-soft-and-chewy-snickerdoodle and I have not received my vote, can you please make sure i get it?

Hello Armadillo.
Refund has been provided. Reasoning mentioned in email.
Thanks again for your support.

Hi! I made a mistake in the memo when I sent 0.500 SBD. Would you be kind enough to refund me. Thanks

Hello,
Refunded has been provided. Thank you for your continued support.

Thank you so much!

Hi @upvotewhale, what must @upvotewhale voting % be before it will vote on post? It is currently 70.80% and returned funds to me.

Hello,
Yes this is a tricky subject as there's several ways to go about it.
I see there being 2 options:
Option 1. As soon as Voting power goes over 70% allow upvotes again. This will then allow a constant flow of upvotes but that means you'll have to get lucky to get an upvote. This will mean more money for me, but it means less for my customers. There's a high chance you won't get an upvote as someone gets there before you in that case.

Option 2. When voting power goes under 70%, refund all transactions until voting power has recovered significantly. This option means that all transactions will be refunded for 24 hours or so until voting power has recovered. Of course that means no one gets an upvote for 24 hours, but it also means that when upvotes are enabled. Everyone can get an upvote. This means it's fair game for everyone.

I prefer option 2. You can expect I'll re-enable upvotes somewhere between 80-90% voting power.

Thanks again for your continued support.

Thank you for the detailed answer @upvotewhale. There are not many instant upvote bots like yours.

Question: what about a upvote que like @steemlike? There is a website like that gives you estimate time it will take to get your vote. This allows bidders to bid and go away and know it will take x hours for vote to show and I don;t have to watch your vote power all day.

I like the idea of having a queue. But at that point what makes me different from a vote bidding bot?
I started UpvoteWhale because I saw a distinct lack of instant upvote bots. If I were to setup a queue type system then it wouldn't be instant upvotes anymore.

I believe most people use my service because it's an instant upvote so they can take advantage of the added curation rewards from having the post upvotes within 30 minutes of posting.
If I were to remove the instant aspect of my bot I believe that diminishes its worth.

I do however have plans in the future for having the refund explain the estimated time before upvotes are enabled again. Of course, this will be a much later update. The current list of future updates I believe has priority over this feature.

I understand your reasoning. I think you will very successful @upvotewhale

Please i send you 0.070 for an upvote over 3hours now but no effect.the post is vote wisely and it will soon b due for cash out.if its not possible again help me use it to upvote this dont let me loss out please.look forward to received your kind response.https://steemit.com/life/@tpassion/know-body-should-be-trusted-except-god-your-heart-is-the-only-trusted-friend i love your service God bless

Hello tpassion,
Steemit has a limit that a post cannot be upvoted if it is 12 hours or closer from payout. That means if the post is 6 days and 12 hours old, it is too old. Your post was 7 days old.
In the future, please make sure the post is no older than 6 days.
Refund provided.
Thanks for your continued support!

Hello.. New on steemit Read the post did not really understand the whole idea or what it's about.. Please could you explain in simple terms

If you want a post to be upvoted, you simply send between 0.01 and 4.5 SBD / STEEM with the link to the post you want upvoted in the memo. You will receive an upvote or a refund within 30 seconds and if that does not happen then something went wrong.
In which case you can send me an email and I will manually refund: [email protected]

Hello, I would like to know how I get your votes in my publications, how is the procedure?

If you want a post to be upvoted, you simply send between 0.01 and 4.5 SBD / STEEM with the link to the post you want upvoted in the memo. You will receive an upvote or a refund within 30 seconds and if that does not happen then something went wrong.
In which case you can send me an email and I will manually refund: [email protected]

An example to get your post upvoted would be the following:
Let's say we wanted to upvote the following post.
https://steemit.com/landscapephotography/@emiii18/landscapephotography-for-tuesday-contest-isla-catica-venezuela

Then you would send the following payment:
Payment to: upvotewhale
Amount: between 0.01 - 4.5 SBD/STEEM
Memo: https://steemit.com/landscapephotography/@emiii18/landscapephotography-for-tuesday-contest-isla-catica-venezuela

Please note as of right now, I have low voting power. When I have low voting power I refund all transactions until my voting power has recovered.

Ok thanks for the information.. How can I know if their voting power is high? because I'm interested in getting your vote in my last publication

As of right now the only way is either by checking payment history and seeing if I refund every payment with the "Low voting power" message, or by sending me a payment and seeing if it is upvoted or refunded.

In the future I will add features so you can easily tell, but as of right now I am prioritising ironing out bugs, I'd rather have a featureless bot that is guaranteed to work rather than a bot full of features and full of bugs and problems!

como hago para upvote

I have send 0.010 for you,, to upvote my blog, please chec! Thanks.

Hello,
Not sure what happened but your transaction was missed somehow. Manually upvoted the post for you.
Sorry about that. Thanks for your support.

More than likely there was a temporary disconnection from the RPC node, it's missing from my transaction logs so that's the only conclusion I can come to.

Please, check out your email, Thanks.

Hello vickyst,
Transaction refunded.
Thank you for your support.

5 days ago i transferred you 0.010 SBD but you replied me "Low voting power. Please try again later. See Voting power at https://www.steemnow.com/@upvotewhale." I also didn't receive refund or upvote later. I do hope you will give a manual upvote at my latest post.

Do you mind looking at that picture again for me please?
The "message" is the refund. Notice how it says "Receive 0.010 SBD from upvotewhale"

ohh... sorry.. I will use this bot again.

Hi @upvotewhale,
I sent you 0.5 sbd for this post https://steemit.com/deutsch/@stehaller/was-ist-nur-am-montag-an-den-boersen-passiert , but I didn't get any upvote or refund.

Hello Stehaller,
As mentioned in Email, refund has now been provided. Apologies for the issue.
Thank you for your support.

Thanks a lot. You are providing a great service!

And you received a refund less than 30 seconds after sending me the SBD. You received a refund due to low voting power.
In the future please check your transactions list.
Thanks again for your support.

30minutes ago I sent you 0.05sbd my link in memo but i've not gotten any upvote, am losing trust on your service

You received a refund less than 30 seconds after you sent 0.05 SBD to me. This was due to low voting power.

You received a refund less than 30 seconds after you sent 0.05 SBD to me. This was due to low voting power.

Hey there @upvotewhale,

Would love to try this service of yours. but can't seem to be able to understand how this 2.0x thing works? Does that means if I send 0.01 you will send a upvote worth approx. 0.02. Am I right? Please confirm. Thanks for the bot anyways.

Hello,
That is exactly correct. If you send 1 SBD, you get 2.1 SBD upvote.
So with 0.1.. Gives 0.21 SBD upvote.

hi did not vote

@upvotewhale

Hello,
You received a refund within 30 seconds of you sending payment. Please check.

Please just be sure to include link to post and payment amount so I can find it.

uzay, I'm not sure you've heard of this term... But it's called patience, and I highly recommend looking into its meaning.
I am on holiday, I apologise for not getting back to you sooner but I am on holiday and do not have access to my server.
Practice some patience. I am not a machine and I do take holidays as well.
Never the less, this is a mistake on my part and I apologise for that. I have manually upvoted your post with almost $3 upvote worth. I hope this will suffice as an apology.

Thank you for your support.

I found your bot really nice!

I'll try it soon. Thanks @upvotewhale
