Hi guys, quick update about recent @tipU updates:
Recent Inconsistency in Payouts
The recent update to @tipU voting schedule changed how the voting power is spend each day. Because of the change not all 20% of daily voting power limit was spend and thus lower profit was generated.
It is not a problem, as any additional recovered voting power will be spend soon or later but it may require some time before vote buyers will notice, that they can use @tipU upvotes longer than 4 hours a day :) I've also increased the max allowed upvote for a new post so this should help in spending the voting power.
Update To Vote Power Math
Steem blockchain still has an issue, where upvotes value is rounded up and the more STEEM POWER the voter has, the bigger the problem. In case of @tipU for example, a 1 SBD upvote was often made as an 1.1 SBD upvote, even though the calculations were right.
Thanks for the research done by @mys (Steem Voting weight % is not that linear as we may think) I was able to update the algorithm that calculates needed vote power.
The update allows @tipU to slightly scale down the upvote so instead of 1 SBD upvote, a 0.948 upvote will be made (for example) and the payment difference will be refunded. This should allow @tipU to save some voting power and increase the profit by... few %? I'm still waiting for the data here.
