SteemPlus 2.20: Utopian + SteemPlus Partnership = Bigger upvotes

in #utopian-io4 years ago

SteemPlus partners with @utopian-io to bring you something huge! Indeed, posting your contributions to opensource projects via the SteemPlus extension will bring you bigger upvotes for the Utopian bot!

Read on to see how to use it and how this is going to benefit everyone!

A win - win - win

By posting to Utopian via SteemPlus, there are three winners! Utopian, SteemPlus and most importantly, you!


You will get a bigger Utopian upvote for your hard work on opensource projects! The vote Utopian attributes to your post will be incremented by 10% of it's initial value, plus an additionnal 6% vote.

i.e. : If you were originally to get a 20% vote from Utopian, you would get instead:
20 + 20 * 10 / 100 + 6 = 28% vote

You will also accumulate SteemPlus points by posting on Utopian, that will result on votes from the @steem-plus account according to your shared (more on that later).


Support Utopian via a 5% beneficiary reward on your post. I don't think I need to convince anyone but Utopian is a project that could change how opensource projects are made and bring a lot of attention to the Steem blockchain.


Support SteemPlus via a 1% beneficiary reward. SteemPlus is already helping over 3200 active users to enhance their Steem experience (on Steemit and Busy) and this will help us to keep working on it and develop the features that you need.

Note about the beneficiary rewards

There is a total of 6% beneficiary rewards but you will get the fixed 6 additional percent to cover it. Then the extra 10% of your additional vote is a bonus for you!

Great! How do I use it ?

First make sure you are using the latest version of SteemPlus (v2.20). Either install it from here or update it from your Chrome Extension tab. For installation procedures on Firefox or Opera, please check the bottom of our README.

You have the good version, great let's go!

  1. Go to or refresh the page if you're already there.
  2. Login via SteemConnect (click the grey SteemPlus logo near your photo on Steemit). If you do not connect via SteemConnect, none of the following steps will work.
  3. Click on the Create Post button (sounds familiar?)
  4. Before writing your post, start by entering the utopian-io tag on the tag input and let the magic happen.
  5. A popup will open for you to chose the type of contribution and the repository.
  6. You can also decide to replace the body of your post by the Utopian template corresponding to the category.
  7. The category will be directly added as second tag and the repository included in the post body.
  8. Edit the template and write your post.
  9. Click on Post with Utopian.
  10. Get a bigger Utopian upvote!
  11. Earn SteemPlus Points!


More about SteemPlus Points

Besides Utopian, SteemPlus has also partnered with MinnowBooster and PostPromoter to make access to their services easier. (Boost button on the bottom of each post).

Using the Post with Utopian feature or the Boost Button will earn you SteemPlus points proportionnally to the amount sent to the boost service or to the payout of your Utopian contribution.

The percentage of the points you own will later on determine the percentage of the SteemPlus vote you will receive each day. This system won't be operational before September but you can already start earning points to get a bigger part of the cake when the votes start coming (There will be at least 15k SP invested).

At term the SteemPlus Points will also be used to buy premium features and much more. I'll get into more details later this month.

Great tool, making the steemit community better and better.

Thanks @steem-plus for such a great work. Supporting Utopian and SteemPlus, in addition to better incentives for the contributors, it's definitely a win win win. I am also happy to use this opportunity to say that Utopian has lowered the amount of beneficiaries to 5% (compared to the previous 15%) and the same will apply on Utopian v2 when it's out publicly.

Even when the new Utopian frontend is out, Utopian will hunt for the best Open Source contributions independently from the frontend used for the submission. The Utopian + SteemPlus partnership is here to stay :)

One of the things that is really great about the Utopian Platform is that you guys tend to cover the users when the market trends downwards. I am glad there are still ways that you can continue to do this. This should also help clean up the workflow of posting to another frontend.

Great! This will push a lot of newbies like myself to the edge to try and give our very best.

maybe my opinian is wwork..

Very exciting. Open Source project owners, users and contributors will all benefit from this collaboration. Great work @stoodkev, @cedricguillas and @elear.

sounds great for devs, got any hook ups for us not so smart folks that are not developers to earn some sweet upvotes?

Using MinnowBooster or PostPromoter via SteemPlus also let you start getting SteemPlus Points.
DTube and Blocktrades via SteemPlus coming soon as well ;)
Plus you don't need to be a dev to work with Utopian. They also cover design, copywriting, bug hunting, documentation, analysis, and more.

Amazing innovation. It's time to install steemplus then.

Bin mit der Erweiterung für den Chrome Browser und mit dem Update vollkommen zufrieden !
Tolle Arbeit 👍

How to remove posting authorization?
I used before and shows has posting authorization for my account. After I logged in steemconnect, I can find other APPs to revoke, but cannot find
How to remove Thanks

Oh, I got the answer. It can be removed by using the following link

I get this for the new version and I am not happy to let an extension "read and change all the data on the websites that you visit". That seems really dangerous even though the extension hasn't caused any problems in the past.

Screen Shot 2018-08-12 at 08.21.49.png

I don't suppose there is a way to just use the old version as I was quite happy with that?


Hey, you should use version, the copy paste permission has been removed.
Read and change the data has alwatys been there since day one, and there is no way around it if you want SteemPlus to be able to add buttons and features to your Steemit or Busy experience.

I am just using whatever it is trying to update to on Chrome?

Screen Shot 2018-08-12 at 09.32.09.png

This is what it shows me if I go to the app store but it still gives me the same warning.

Update it and check the permissions afterwhile, you will see that does not require the copy paste.
As I said in my previous comment. the Read and Change data has always been there.

OK thank you. I'll check again later as Chrome is still saying the same thing at the moment. I'm not that savvy with extensions so I just wait for Chrome to do automatic updates.

Manually update it first then check the permissions. My guess is that Chrome is still showing it because one of the versions in between did ask it.
But look :

No copy paste permission in there =)

OK thank you! :-)

Wanted to ask the same. Asking for copy/paste clipboard privileges is too much. At first it looked like malicious software to me.
Good it is removed 👍

Super useful addon to make your steemit experience so much better. Thank you to the development team for making this possible.

You're very welcome!

The guarantee of typical blogging to acquire cash ended up being empty,

indeed it could be extremely lucrative BUT you must have the capacity to assemble an entire on-line advertising and possibly item age machine behind it.

That is work in itself, beside the written work which is sufficiently hard!

The motivating force for some, individuals to show promotions is leaving quick, it is simply not justified, despite any potential benefits any longer! The general population who can adapt writes specifically are the individuals who have huge measures of movement.

I am using the steem plus for days now. :)

Great work @steem-plus this is quite an amazing article.

15k sp are too much. I dont think more than few people possess this.

I said I will invest this money, I don t get your point.

Whatever do you, but how will you get this huge amount, buddy

thanks @steemplus for making this platform better

Wow, such an amazing collaboration, congrats and keep up the great work!
I have a question, what about for translation category?

The upvote will be increased as well since the 5% beneficiaries are set there as well

So.. posting through SteemPlus+Utopian frontend is like posting through DaVinci+Utopian frontend? @elear

Nope. Good point. Translators should keep posting through for the DaVinci team to get their beneficiaries as well

Ok, perfect. Thank you ;)

both of them steem Utopian have combined , means we would certainly get something good, i am waiting for the same , thank you for this info bro

That is a damn smart move. Many thanks to @stoodkev, @cedricguillas and @elear.

I plan a few steemit projects and therefore I look for some developers. What's the best way to find the right one?

Hey @detlev. Did you join the Utopian Discord already?

Hi @elear,

thanks for asking and yes I'm around there as Detlev#4277 but I did not communicated regarding my ideas.

We may have a chat there....

Hi @detlev, please contact me on Discord

Will do later this evening. Thanks for reaching out to me!!

Great! This will push a lot of newbies like myself to the edge to try and give our very best.

thanks for this type of great tool...

Excelente voy a intentar configurar y colaborar con Uds... buen Proyecto de desarrollo de la Plataforma steem

Very cool feature. Welcome Utopian + SteemPlus Partnership.

Do you mind I make a Chinese-translation work based for your works? I was being attracted by all the works your have with SteemPlus

Excellent read, Positive site, where did u come up with the information on this posting?

As a long time SteemPlus user and new Utopian mod, I am absolutely delighted by this. I like it when things I like go well together.

Hello there, I love using SteemPlus as it for sure makes life easier for me. However, this morning I got an update notice asking permission to access everything that I copy and paste. Right after I denied it uninstalled my pluging. I found it really strange and quite dangerous to be honest.

Any help would me much appreciated. Thank you.

SteemPress? This is about SteemPlus :)

Yes, SteemPlus update notice me asking permission to access everything that I copy and paste, @elear!
Is better if I uninstall the SteemPlus plugin?

I uninstalled @inlakech, I felt it was very invasive. I would love to install it again, let's see what happens.

UPDATE : I found a solution and the new version without the permission will be out within an hour.

Thank you, @stoodkev! 🙏🏻❤️

Thank you @stoodkev, will go back to use and recommend the app.

Any extension that requires copy paste permission is trash.

Any extension
That requires copy paste
Permission is trash.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

Thanks for your exquisite good-mannered haiku but SteemPlus does not currently require copy paste permission.

Did your mother never teach you if you have nothing nice to say to say nothing at all? How would an extension like @steem-plus do so much for us if it did not have the permissions to do so? Try to keep it positive and think before posting negatively. (as the developer stated they do not require your copy paste permission)

Oh yeah, my mistake. It's because I was talking about SteemPress to a friend so it crossed my mind, thanks for pointing ou @elear.

When puting the Utopian template into the post body, Steemit overrides it everytime with the previous text. Steemplus copy paste the template into the post body and that's the only use of it in the whole extension (you can check on GitHub).
I will try to find a better workaround in the coming days.

UPDATE : I found a solution and the new version without the permission will be out within an hour.

I was preparing my self to start posting on utopian. This comes as extra motivation :)

this is really cool! lets see what happened then after post with #utopian-io . thanks for your service @steem-plus

Super cool.

thanks @steemplus for making this platform better

Hello @steem-plus and @stoodkev. I am using your great extension for a while already, but when tried to download the newest version of it now, it asked me to give some NEW PERMISSIONS to your extension: ACCESS TO COPY AND PASTE DATA. I haven't seen you mention it here in your post, so I decided to ask, if I have my passwords copy pasted from some source. Will it mean that your new update will also have access to this private information?? I hope I am getting everything wrong with this issue, but still I am a bit confused about it, awaiting for your soonest clarification on that because currently my previous version of Steem Plus extension has been disabled and I am still a little afraid to install the newest version of it because of this copy paste access permission. Why do you need access to anyone's copy paste data???)))

When puting the Utopian template into the post body, Steemit overrides it everytime with the previous text. Steemplus copy paste the template into the post body and that's the only use of it in the whole extension (you can check on GitHub).
I will try to find a better workaround in the coming days.

Thank you for clarifying it and assuring me with this @stoodkev. I fully trust you and your extension. Your word is enough to me. So now I will finally go and give that permission, because I got used to it so much that using steemit without SteemPlus make it a real torment to me)

Glad you like it that much! =)
I will still try to find a better way to do that asap!

thank you :)

@stoodkev I was trying to make the Test Post for this new SteemPlus feature. But I must admit that it's not working at all on my end. I mean the magic happens when I put utopian-io tag but then, OK button constantly showing the red forbidden sign, I tried all the categories and put different github links - nothing. I just can't push this OK button. Because of that coming red forbidden circle. I also tried to check and uncheck that OVERRIDE POST BODY WITH UTOPIAN TEMPLATE. No. No variant for me to push that OK button/ What am I doing wrong?

I think I can guess what you did wrong.
You need to type the repository name and select if from the dropdown, not copy pasting it, we re calling GIthub API to get info ;)

Ok, thank you for your advice! I am going to try to type my repository name manually today as I want to make my first contribution to @utopian-io using SteemPlus.

No problem! How did it go?

UPDATE : I found a solution and the new version without the permission will be out within an hour.

All right, I accepted those permissions already anyway, as you @stoodkev is on my trusted-steemians-list!)

Es una herramienta muy util Ya esta instalada :D gracias @steam-plus

Guys I need your help here, this pop up wont let me shine, I cant get it off my screen. Any help?Screenshot_20180812-020608.png

Although im using yandex browser, for some reason my chrome wouldnt install any extension and my opera wouldnt install particularly steemplus...

Anyway I havent tried yandex on my pc, maybe the pop up would not be a problem

Hi! We do not currently support Yandex browser so you might get issues indeed.
Chrome Opera and Firefox should be working (on PC) , can you tell us which issues you are facing?

Getting on board with steemplus is giving me a awesome experience already, its like my steem account just got some steroids, looking all sexy and fly....excellent work guys, i love the functions, the wallet, it is super explanatory and fun to use, I mean, just look at the delegate button in the wallet, kudos to you guys, I will love to let more people know about this. @stoodkev is my latest witness on the block now.

Thanks for sharing us

buen post sigue asi aca una recomendacion :






Not sure how establishing partnerships make us dependent.

You have every right to express your opinion both positive or negative.

Stop self voting each one of your comments

You know as well as I do what the general attitude is toward self-voting on comments. Hint: no one really likes it. The only reason to upvote your own comment is to give it visibility in a busy thread. In this case, your upvote on your negative comment against the collaboration did not go unnoticed and does little but make you look childish.

Don't talk shit. The self-vote comment is a cover for not liking criticism. This guy mostly does not self-vote his comments. Expressing an opinion different from yours is not childish.

Don't talk shit.

Why? Are you the only one allowed or are you scared of competition in your shit talking niche? :)

Also, mind your own business, little fruit.

Nice comeback. Looks like you can handle my sour blueberries.

Especially in pancakes.

Damn now I am craving blueberry pancakes.

WTF. @wehmoen does not fully agree with your post so you flag him using @utopian-io delegated Steem Power.

The problem with this account is much more than just few self voted comments. Recently being banned by buildawhale as well.

Thanks for responding. He must be doing something naughty with at least one of his many accounts.
