It was an OK start for the first post. The post value reached $4.24 with 197 votes. As a thank you to the voters, I added $10 SBD to the pool and divided to pay out roughly $.05 in SBD value or 0.126 Steem Power to each voting supporter for this project.
The VIP Feature post author received roughly $1.13 in SBD or 2.7 Steem Power
Today's VIP Feature is a post from @contentjunkie.
What is Vote Interest Pool(VIP)?
VIP in a new project and an initiative to reward voters for... well... voting. You are already given this from the 25% deducted from post rewards and given to the curators as part of the Steemit platform standard. With VIP, you will be rewarded on top of this.
Similar to @steemsports, but the main goal of VIP is to progress the Steemit platform and have more steem/sbd/steempower distributed to everyone. The more everyone one can get, the better.
In order for VIP to be successful, it will need the community's help. As far as I seen here on Steemit, it shouldn't be much of a problem. Almost every user is rethinking how they use a social platform and trying to help Steemit grow. I am confident we can accomplish this and everyone can feel the VIP treatment.
Every new post will feature a "VIP Feature" post created by fellow Steemians. To better the Steemit community in quality, this feature was created to support verified users on Steemit and get the community interacting more together.
Once verified and we know you have a voice and are not a robot, You will be randomly queued to have your most recent post for the day to be featured for the VIP Feature. once you made it on the random queue list, one of your most recent posts will be featured once every 3 months to allow others to be featured.
The @voteinterestpool account will automatically vote the post featured for VIP Feature on the authors account.
How It Works:
If the VIP post hits a reward value of $500 after 24 hrs, automatically roughly $125 will be deducted for the 25% curation voting rewards.
The 75% remainder:
50% in SteemPower value of $187.5 will go to the @voteinterestpool account for the author post curation reward.
10% goes to the author on "VIP Feature" at roughly $18.75 value in Steempower
The remaining 40% rewards will be roughly $168.75 and distributed to 300 voters if the post reached $500 by 300 votes.
Everyone will receive roughly $0.5625 value in SteemPower.
So let's shoot for $1000+ so everyone who votes will get over $1 worth of SteemPower!
@voteinterestpool account voting:
Other than "VIP Feature" author's post @voteinterestpool account will follow voting trail of @instructor2121 and @fyrstikken because they are reputable members that are doing contributions to the Steemit platforms and are good judgement on quality posts and users on Steemit, if the event the @voteinterestpool account becomes large enough to have large voting power. This will ensure voting will be distributed outside of just VIP.
@instructor2121 for contributing to this project
Can't forget the Steemspeak crew. Their support motivated me to keep going so I wouldn't have made it this far without them. @fyrstikken, @proctologic, @contentjunkie, @inertia, @krnel, @sykochica, @patelincho, @tee-em, @noganoo, @pharesim, @mughat, @applecrisp, @raymonjohnstone @creationlayer, @shneakysquirrel, @pickokernel, @ausbitbank, @poeticsnake, @kiddarko, @bitcoinparadise and anyone else I forgot to mention.
"Everyone deserves the VIP treatment"
