Making More HIVE, SPT, LEO, and SPORTS with Curation Trails!

Do you know about Curation Trails? If not, this post is for you. A curation trail is one of the best passive earning methods on HIVE!

Curation Trails are a way to piggyback on the votes of a reputable curator here on the HIVE blockchain. Instead of spending your time searching for and upvoting quality content, you can delegate that authority to a trusted curator. The best part is that there are many different curators that focus on certain topics so you can pick and choose where you want your votes to be cast on your behalf and you don't have to do anything other than provide them the ability to vote on your behalf... no delegating your HIVE or other tokens to take advantage of this. Curating posts earns you rewards 7 days after the post is written.




First, head on over to Hive.Vote, login and click on the Curation Trail button:

Second, search through the list of curation trails to find ones that suit your interests! Read through the descriptions to see which trails tickle your fancy.

Here's a list of the trails I am currently following:

@hive.pizza - As you may know, I am a top 10 holder of the PIZZA token and love everything about it! The @hive.pizza curation trail upvotes content relating to PIZZA, gaming, movie, art, and music.

@monster-curator - If you are a @Splinterlands player you MUST start following this curation trail. The @monster-curator account upvotes great Splinterlands content that uses the #SPT tag. Head on over to Splintertalk.io and you'll see if you've been earning any SPT tokens. Following this curation trail will add to your SPT earnings. You can also delegate staked SPT to @monster-curator to turbocharge your SPT rewards!

@spt-curate - This is another great Splinterlands trail that will help you earn more SPT tokens through curation.

@risingstargame - If you play the Rising Star game, you should be on this curation trail. This account upvotes posts written about Rising Star and other high-quality music posts.

@actifit - This is the official curation trail for Actifit. By joining this trail you will be upvoting your fellow Actifit users! I've been involved with Actifit for a couple of years now and it's a great way to keep yourself physically active with some friendly competition (and make some money too!).

@leo.voter - Quality posts on the LeoFinance.io platform are upvoted within this curation trail. Following this trail will earn you LEO tokens!

@ecency - This is a great curation trail if you're a user of the Ecency platform. Ecency earns you points when you post, comment, vote, and more on the HIVE blockchain. These points can be redeemed for promotion or boosts to your posts in the form of high value upvotes. Following this trail will let you piggyback on curated posts that are receiving upvotes in exchange for trading in their Ecency points.

@mk-sports-token - This curation trail upvotes content with the #sportstalk tag, much of which can be found at Sportstalksocial.com. Following this curation trail will earn you extra SPORTS tokens.




Third, set your curation trail voting weight. Following a curation trail WILL eat up your voting power. It's important that you set some parameters on your curation trail voting. The default vote percentage when you follow a trail is 50%. You can change this up or down individually, or across all the trails you follow by clicking the gear box on the right side, or checking the box on the left and then clicking "settings for selections."

Curation Profits Start Rolling In!

Now you're following curation trails! Keep an eye on how your voting power fluctuates over the next few days and adjust your voting percentage up or down on Hive.Vote to keep yourself actively voting on the trail and preserving enough voting power. If you let your voting power drop too low, your votes won't generate as much of a curation reward. Another thing to keep an eye on is your Upvote Mana Threshold within the Settings page on Hive.Vote.

If your voting power falls below the "upvote mana threshold" that you set on Hive.Vote, your account will not cast any upvotes on your curation trails until it increases above the threshold. Finding the right balance between your curation trail voting power and your upvote mana threshold will take some time, but it's well worth it once you see the steady stream of curation rewards hitting your HIVE, SPORTS, LEO, and SPT wallet balances!

Thanks for the mention and helping inform people about passive ways to use their voting mana if they are not actively voting! These are all awesome people/ groups you mentioned to follow on hive.vote. Remember the more SPT you have staked the bigger the curation rewards! Also, I do try and gain curation while supporting good content for Splinterlands on Splintertalk.io! Thanks again!

I'm loving the price of SPT lately and the great rewards that can be made from creating and curating content on Splintertalk. Thanks for the great curation work you do! !PIZZA

The market seems to be thin for it in ways. I hope I can get more in the near future as things clear up before spt goes up

Thank you for explaining this process! Up to this point, I have done all my curation manually; however, I stake every coin I've ever received when it comes to the coins lesser known to me...with few exceptions...some coins just aren't worth holding in my opinion...but almost all coins, I've held. For those that don't have a meaning to me, this is a perfect way to put them to work! Thank you for the tutorial! I will head there now and put some of my inactive hodling coins to work!

Wow so much info. I'm new to Hive but really trying to make the most of the ecosystem. I'm totally lost when I see terms like curation trail and delegating. Saving this article for later. Thanks!

Instead of spending your time searching for and upvoting quality content, you can delegate that authority

Which is exactly the cause of so many problems on this chain. I detest autovoting in all its forms. THe whole idea behind the blockchain was to earn from creating content which is then approved by other members of the community by voting on it. Too much is earned from curation. If there were no autovotes, people might put more effort and sincerity into their posts in my opinion instead of voting on stuff without actually looking at it.

Thanks for bringing up this perspective. I agree with not autovoting trash content and there are occasional problems with bots and automated content here and there. However, the curation trails I featured and follow myself are manually curated (with the exception of Actifit). If a curation trail is upvoting spam content, it will likely find itself in hot water and not being followed. The best content is still the most rewarded, but I haven't seen widespread problems with spam being auto-curated in significant amounts. IF a curation trail begins upvoting bad content, I will stop following it and so will many others. I know there are accounts in the past that have been downvoted into irrelevance by the community for posting spam, so I am confident in the self-governance of the HIVE community.

Hey @reward.app @reward.app how do you deal with SPT token rewards on this post? This post earned at least 18,000 SPT (worth $180 USD) for the author share but it doesn't appear that you send SPT to the authors that use reward.app as a beneficiary. Your SPT wallet is filling up but doesn't seem to be sending any out to authors: https://www.splintertalk.io/@reward.app/wallet but are unstaking and selling off the tokens: https://he.dtools.dev/@reward.app?symbol=SPT Please advise. Thanks!

When the accounts you are following on the curation trail begin upvoting posts, your account will upvote them too. Some curation trails aren't as active as others. You can check all your account activity here: https://hiveblocks.com/@mervinthepogi

You'll start to see entries that start with: "mervinthepogi upvote" and then the link to the post. If you don't see upvotes appearing there, then double check your settings on hive.vote

Pick the curators that you are most interested in. You can search or scroll through the list and check out the various topics and also verify when they were last active. I listed my favorites in this post.
