Being staff picked for Top of Utopian is a mark of excellence. Contributions included in this post have to set the bar for what we want and expect from our contributors. Sometimes, only a few contributions meet that bar. This is one of those times. We only had two staff picks this week, but these picks, from the Anti-abuse and Analysis cateogories, are both terrific.


Staff Picks

Introducing CryptoRecycling: A Covert, Concealed Approach to Reposting - @adrianobalan & @sardrt by @jaguar.force [anti-abuse]

@jaguar.force has brought us an incredible story of deceit and mistrust. A web of abuse hidden right in front of everyone. It is incredible to what lengths the abusers on steem apps will go. They find so many sneaky ways to abuse the reward pool. This post is an eye opener and kudos to @jaguar.force for the hard work! Must read to anyone who cares about the steem reward pool.
