Welcome to the weekly edition of the UpvoteBank report.
Steemit is one of the fastest growing blogging platform on the internet, which is great!! But this also causes some problems for new users, that work very hard on creating the perfect posts, day in and day out, getting no or very little attention.
That's where @upvotebank comes in!! We help by giving out “free” upvotes up as big as up to 10 times your own voting value!!
The idea is that you should not change your behavior, and not think about this service....it will use your vote when you don´t and upvote your posts when you have saved up some upvotes.
What exactly does @upvotebank do?
Every steemian on the steem block chain, can give up to 10 full upvotes every day. But many do not use the platforms every day, which means upvotes gets lost.
With UpvoteBank you can put your upvotes in our bank, and the next time you make a post, you will get upvoted with the upvotes you have saved up….
okay, what really happens is that we use your un-used upvotes to upvote others, and when you make a post we use there un-used upvotes to upvote you with the amount you have saved up. We will only use your vote if your voting power is above 90%!!
The system daily calculates, how much you can save up in your account. As this depends on the number of members and there Steem Power. But we hope to be able to give you upvotes 5-8 times your own vote.
For a better understanding, please take a look at our introduction video.
News - Bot update
We have now been running this service for a little more than a week. Thanks to all of you that have joined, even thou we currently are in beta!!!
In the startup period, we made a lot of bug fixes and changes to the service and properly also lost a couple of members because of it. :-/
But it now seems to be running stable and as expected (as long as the steem block chain does).
Please give us some feedback (good as well as bad), It´s always great to hear from our members. Without you this would not be possible!!
For this service to function properly, we need more member so please resteem and tell everybody about us 😉
Okay, are the any restrictions?
We will focus on users who post quality content, to ensure that upvotes don´t go to bad content authors.
Therefor your blog must live up to these terms, which will be checked by our system when you register.
• Your reputation must be above 25.
• Your content must not be “nsfw”
• Your last 14 posts, much not have down-votes.
How do you sign up?We are currently in BETA and are looking for Steemians that can help us test the system. So, for now it´s free to register :-)
To register do:
- Type “register” in a comment on any posts from @upvotebank.
- Wait about 30 sec. and update the page. Our service should now have validated your blog and added a reply to your comment.
If your blog has passed our validation, you will receive a message with a link in. You have to follower this to grant the service access to use your vote. When you follow the link, you will be asked to login to approve. We DO NOT in anyway store your password, the permission is giving to the system thru SteemConnect which is a trusted steem partner.
Other commands?Yes, our system supports the following commands that can be typed in a comment on any posts from @upvotebank.
Sends you a message with your current upvote balance and account information.
Sends you a message with a link that you can follow if you what to leave UpvoteBank and remove the systems rights to use your vote.
“min. vp: xx%“
Sets you minimum voting power for upvoting. (you can see your current setting by using the “balance” command)
- Setting this low will drain your VP, but quickly give you upvotes to your account (great if you post several times a day)
- Setting this high will keep your VP up, but take you longer to get upvotes to your account (great if you post 2-3 times a week)
(We recommend setting it between 80-95%)
It is safe to give authorize our Steem account to @upvotebank?
When giving upvote rights to someone you don´t know, you always run chance :-/
We use SteemConnect, just like other services (minnowbooster, steemvoter, ...) and therefore we do NOT store your login or pw in any way.
If you feel that we misuse your vote or just don´t like being apart of this service anymore... you can use the "leave" command and revoke the upvote rights.
Just checked my post and it only revived 0.0x, but I expected 0.xx?
The system upvotes the post as @upvotebanks members have upvotes to spare. This means that you might not see a big upvote just after posting, but the post should receive the expected within 48 hours.
I don´t see any upvotes from @upvotebank?
At the monument we do not upvote from @upvotebank (we might in the future), the upvotes comes from the other members.
How do I cancel this service?
Send 0.001 SBD from you wallet to @upvotebank with the comment "leave", and the system will send you a message with a link that you can follow if you what to leave UpvoteBank and remove the systems rights to use your vote.
(before using this, please drop us an message why...just so we can do better in the future)
