Splinterlands without DEC upvotes

in #steemmonsterslast year

The other side of the hardfork coin.

Personally I like #newsteem. Steem was broken before hf21/22 and @trafalgar and @kevinwong really did have a good point. But we have to be careful that it doesn't go in the opposite direction of the pendulum.

To take an extreme example. Some of the people that were bullied turn out to be the worst bullies themselves as a coping mechanism.

This is quote from @aggroed about the reason why they have to stop the DEC bot

The rather extreme view point of a few whales in the community is that any profitable bidbot use will destroy the apparently frail ecosystem. To discourage bidbot use at all they have begun flagging with votes that are in this case larger than the purchased vote.

This is not me making a big political statement but just urging caution to not overreact on how Steem was before.

As of the 30th of September Steemmonsters will be pulling the bidding service that made it possible to get votes on steem by paying with DEC.



I personally was enjoying the DEC from my delegation but have now sadly cancelled it to add to my account. I also found this a good way to interweave @Steemmonsters /Splinterlands with the Steem system and Tron.

The good thing out of this is that there will be a manual curation team going through all the splinterlands themed posts to do manual curation with the SP in the account which without all delegations still has a very very respectful 500k SP to go around and vote with on the relevantly themed Splinterlands content. But I do think that the other 300K will go soon enough.

The thing is that most people do not do this out of the kindness of their heart and most of us (me included) do want some kind of return for our Steem Power either passive or active.

So when asked about this I promptly got the response from @yabapmatt

Yes, that's correct. The DEC payouts for delegators came from the DEC spent to purchase the votes, so that will no longer be available. While the additional delegations were nice, we have a significant stake of our own to use to incentivise the creation of content and we have also applied for a delegation from Steemit, Inc to further increase our voting power (among other reasons).

Now this is not a sign that people should be discouraged. I personally do not think this will affect the price of DEC or the effectiveness of playing @steemmonsters for fun and for gains.

SO I have cancelled my delegation that will run out on the 30th and would like to be honest about that as I do see steem as an investment and steemmonsters as well. HODL on

And now I am off to play my daily Quest and work towards GOLD2 so see you on the battlefields...

So wait... what we talked about last week getting dec from delegation is now gone? damn thats a bummer indeed!

Hi @felander, as a member of MAPX, you just received an upvote. This info-message is to announce that the ADDAX trading game will start Round 2 on Monday 23 September. Read the new announcement on ADDAX.
Thanks and hope to see you in the game!

I pulled mine a couple of days ago. The general direction of newsteem is, I think beneficial for the ecosystem; but its never fun being on the receiving end of those free downvotes :)
I think in time the simplicity of newsteem is actually going to help us a lot. Bidbots meant complexity, and that learning curve was a barrier for new entrants. Much simpler now.
Post quality, get seen, get tokens.

Post quality, get seen, get tokens.

good line... they should change the steem moto to that.
But that is also the main thing right?

  • big accounts determine quality
  • most people are not capable of writing quality, just mediocre shit like mine (as an example)
