Burning Bid-Bot Long-Term Mission & Chibifighters Giveaway Update

in bot •  15 days ago

Introduction


In this post some of the most common problems that Steem is currently suffering will be adressed and given a solution by simply using the @lrd Burning Bid-Bot.
At the end of the post a quick update will be given regarding the Giveaway of Chibifighters that is currently taking place.
WARNING: This will be a long post.

The problems Steem is suffering from right now


Even though Steem is a great concept it is still in its early stage meaning a lot of things have to be improved to make the Steem Blockchain even better, here are some of problems we have to face:

1-Account creation system


In order for an account to do any basic action (upvoting, commenting, posting...) it requires bandwidth in the Steem Blockchain, this means that each account needs to have at least a small amount of Steem (could be delegated) to be able to take part in this social platform, therefore creating an account costs money, most accounts created as of today are being paid by Steemit Inc, the fact money has to be paid in order for an account to be made is what it is preventing Steem from really scaling the number of accounts, Hardfork 20 has improving account creation as one of it main goals.

2-Stake Weighted Voting System


Currently, the more Steem Power you have the higher the share of the reward pool you can decide where it goes. This idea works great on paper but it is causing multiple problems, a few of those are:

Self Voting


Even though it is completely understandable the fact that Self Voting is currently the most profitable way of using your Steem Power it wasn't what @dan had in mind when developing Steem, the main concept of Steem is to create a Decentralised, Self-Sustainable, Rewarding Social Media Platform, that is why Curation Rewards were created in the first place, they were designed to incentivize investors (whales) to curate good content and earn more Steem Power as a result but given the fact that it is less profitable than Self Voting or Circle Voting (when a group of people upvote each others content only) almost nobody does it.

Broken Trending page


As a result of everyone with a high amount of VESTS upvoting between each other you always see the same authors in the trending page, this is a topic that has been causing many discussions lately.

Flag Wars


Many of you will probably have already seen some of the flag wars that are happening such as the one between @berniesanders and @haejin, the flagging system was initially created to give users the chance of taking away rewards from someone if you thought their post wasn't worth that much and return that money to the reward pool, however, flag wars create no reason flags because you are not flagging the post but the person who is behind it.

3-Spam


Spam posts are the worst thing in Steem due to the fact they don't let good content arise, the problem is that nobody wants to spend their Voting Power in flagging useless posts.

4-Inflation


Even though inflation is what makes Steem running (without it there would be no reward pool) it is a big disadvantage for investors because they don't know the purpose of such inflation (currently 9.5% and will be decreasing to 0.5%) it is our duty to understand the nature of reward distribution so that they do not think it is just a hidden tax the same way it happens with fiat currencies.

Our Solution


We have designed the Burning Bid-Bot in a way that combines profitability with altruism, there will be 5 active projects that will try to solve the problems described before, let's take a look at the @lrd Burning Bid-Bot Roadmap first:

The 5 Projects that will be part of the Burning Bid-Bot

Increased Revenue Project

The Burning Bid-Bot has a 100% earnings for delegators meaning that all the money the bot collects from bids is distributed among delegators without a fee but we want to go a step further, that is why we have created the Increased Revenue Project, all the money that this project receives from Curation Rewards will be distributed to our delegators. You can check the Roadmap to know how much of the Curation Rewards will go to this project.

Whale project


When a whale is circle voting is because they have no better option, that is why the largest delegator of the Burning Bid-Bot will receive a share of the Curation Rewards, this means the largest delegator will get:

  • 100% earnings
  • A share from the Increased Revenue Project
  • The entire pot from the Whale Project
With such good conditions for a whale we hope circle voting is reduced. You can check the Roadmap to know how much of the Curation Rewards will go to this project.

Backup Fund Project


One thing every investor loves is getting a stable amount of money every single day, that is why we have created the Backup Fund Project, a share of the Curation Rewards will go to this Project so that in case payouts get low an additional payment will be done from the Backup Fund Project, the funds from this project will also be used for the Random Lottery which is a random payout at a random time (another bonus for our delegators). You can check the Roadmap to know how much of the Curation Rewards will go to this project.

Burning Project


This Project is focused on reducing the supply of Steem and it is divided into two parts:

Direct Burning


50% of the Steem that the Burning Project receives will be burnt.

Passive Burning


50% of the Steem that the Burning Project receives will be powered up and delegated to the Burning Bid-Bot, all the daily earnings will then be burnt.
You can check the Roadmap to know how much of the Curation Rewards will go to this project.

Curation Project


This Project will be one of the main focuses of the @lrd Burning Bid-Bot:
All the Steem from Curation Rewards that this project receives will be powered, then multiple curator accounts will be created with a delegation from the main account, this accounts will be given to users who will be the ones who curate content and flag useless posts, in exchange for their services the curators will be able to upvote one of their posts per day. With this initiative we want to reward minnows who are posting quality content and hide spam posts.
You can check the Roadmap to know how much of the Curation Rewards will go to this project.

Project Summary


All this Projects will be running thanks to the Curation Rewards that the @lrd Burning Bid-Bot generates so by delegating to it you are directly helping all of them.

My friend if i delegate 220sp how much i earn everyday?

·

It highly depends on the amount of bids that the bid-bot is receiving daily, since we are still a small bid-bot it is hard to get as much attention as other bigger bots, if you are not sure about delegating yet you can wait a little bit to see how payouts develop (you can check it in the @lrd wallet) and consider whether delegating is what suits you best or not.

Wow it sound really good, I'm in!

Is there any proof that burning steem does anything positive? People have been burning steem for two years since Null got introduced, but I can't see any evidence that it has worked. Have you collated any?

·

In order to understand the benefits of burning Steem you need to know where the value of a currency comes from. You can calculate the value of a coin by dividing its market cap among the amount of existing coins, the less coins there are the higher the amount each coin will be worth.
Example:
There are 10 coins each of them with a value of 10$ because that coin has a market cap of 100$, if we burn 5 coins out of 10 there would only be 5 coins remaining, the market cap would still be 100$ so each coin would be worth 20$.
The problem is that little quantities of Steem have been burnt providing almost no impact in its price, with the Burning Project we want to provide a continuous stream of Steem Burning for an impact in the long-term.

·
·

You are going on a hypothesis though, rather than actual data. There are quite a few inflationary coins, like Doge which have had a massive market cap increase, even as their supply was increasing. (Compare doge market cap now with what it was in 2014, and then compare the number of coins in circulation between 2014 and 2018 - the increased supply made no difference).

Have you actually tried to quantify exactly how much steem was burned and when, to analyse the impact?

For example, you could do an analysis of the null account and compare it to the price at various points. I think you need to crunch the numbers first to prove your theory, rather than just rush ahead based on a guess.

Ill give it a try, have 100 SP from me! I'm always into trying something new on this platform, and this seems like it will help promote better content, and get some of the spam off the site.

·

We can't wait to reach 100k Steem Power so we can start activating all 5 projects.

Sometimes ya just gotta burn the place down & start fresh! Self - Voting, Bandwidth & flagging, are all issues I see regularly.

·

We will try help in solving those problems, bandwidth issues is something we wanna help in too.

I think you might be right about the current problem this platform is facing. I hope the developer have some better solution in mind.

·

Yea there is a lot of talking going about Ned's bad management.Im a bit worried about current situation.I hope that at the end of the day he will prove people wrong and make some positive changes.As we all know Steemit has huge potential but we need some improvements for the platform😕

·
·

Ned is not the only one who can improve Steem, the users provide the biggest chunk of its value.

·
·
·

its the same logic about how users give value to facebook.....but in this case a regular user doesnt necessarily understands how steem works behind the curtains or knows about coding to present or research a project that solve this kind of problems. I think the devs of steemit inc are in a more strong position to handle this issues. Nevertheless i will delegate some SP because i like this project!!

I really like the idea of pro community initiative.I wish everything will work as planned.As you mentioned at the beggining Steemit has huge potential but there are a lot of things to improve,otherwise we will never reach the full potential of the platform.This will take time,fixes and huge community approval but there are plenty of kind users ready to support good planned projects.Steemit gives freedom so there are a lot of people abusing it as usual.I don't even think that bid bots,upvoting yourself or circle upvoting are that deatructive for the platform as long as not abused.However I really like the idea of this project and I will follow it with curiosity.Good luck!😋

Delegate Now

Make sure to tell us your opinions & suggestions about the Burning Bid-Bot.

this sounds like it has been well thought-out. great work. I'll be delegating some SP today. Want to see Steem do well, and agree with some of these issues, which can be addressed by those dedicated to Steemit.

·

Thanks, if you feel like any improvements could be done just let us know.

well, i don't have much to delegate, but i like this idea.

So, there it goes 10 SP for you...

Bla , bla , bla

Tu peuxnpas l expliquer ici en 2 mots ????? NON ? IDIOTS

Why don't they just remove the self-voting option then? And remove the upvote option for red fishes if our upvotes are just worthless anyway.

I dont't understand the burning bid bot yet so I'll just see what happens.

·

Everything would stay the same if self-voting was removed, users would just create one account to post and another one to upvote everything, this is one of the problems that the Burning Bid-Bot is trying to solve by giving rates to whales who delegate that look as profitable as self-voting giving no reason to do such thing.

I hope the developer have some better solution in mind.

Congratulations @lrd!
Your post was mentioned in the Steemit Hit Parade in the following category:

  • Pending payout - Ranked 8 with $ 363,22

How does someone use the bot for bids?

·

Simply send at least 0.01 SBD/STEEM or more to @lrd with the url in the memo, don't worry, if you don't receive the upvote you will be refunded so you can't lose your money.

·

That's pretty awesome. I just saw it on steembottracker so I'll use it more.

This post has received votes totaling more than $50.00 from the following pay for vote services:

rocky1 upvote in the amount of $127.36 STU, $250.92 USD.
appreciator upvote in the amount of $123.54 STU, $243.39 USD.
postpromoter upvote in the amount of $105.26 STU, $207.37 USD.

For a total calculated value of $356 STU, $702 USD before curation, with approx. $89 USD curation being earned by the paid voters.

This information is being presented in the interest of transparency on our platform @lrd and is by no means a judgement of your work.

Maybe I missed it in the post but how exactly are you doing the burning?

·

Currently we are burning 5% of the curation rewards which are not much now due to the fact the Bid-Bot has less than 2,000 Steem Power, still we are burning that 5% through the @safedeposit account.
Once the first milestone is achieved (100,000 SP) all 5 projects will be activated, one of these is the Burning Project which you have an explanation in the post.

·
·

Thanks for the reply, just was a bit unsure on how you go about burning steem.

How will it be burn... you send it to @null account?

·

50% of the Curation Rewards that are assigned to the Burning Project will be directly sent to @null, the other 50% will be powered up in a special account and delegated to the @lrd Burning Bid-Bot, then, the earnings that the special account earns will be burnt (first exchanged to Steem and then sent to @null).

oh yeah it's great. I hope that many users join

Maybe burning Steem is good idea. But you can do it in "promoted page". I see, you made another Bid-Bot. But we have a lot of these. It is sad.
