Hard Fork 21 is here!
After a small hiccup where the Steem blockchain fail-safe kicked in, it's now up and running smoothly.
The downvote pool is also active:
If you go to steemd.com/@username you can see it.
It's possible now to cast 2,5 x 100% downvote a day separate from the upvote pool.
For the first time in a long time, I downvoted a post on trending last night.
I clearly wasn't the only one because this morning the post looked like this:
Why is this significant?
It will disincentivize people from using bit bots on posts that are not up to snuff to a certain standard.
This in itself should increase trending quality.
And obviously, once bit bot abuse in this way is 'fixed' the downvote curation by users will trickle down to other area's.
Remember that every downvote will put rewards back into the reward pool.
Hopefully ultimately leading to a better distribution of STEEM.
The SPS reward fund is filling up with 10% of the daily inflation of Steem per day.
User @dmitrydao Made a great page to show the current proposals.
Go check his most recent post about it here.
I'm really looking forward to what the Steem.DAO can do for Steem and I also love the fact that it is marketable to the outside world.
STEEM price is still around the $0,18 level.
I'm still in accumulation mode when it goes lower.
Markets seem to be waiting for BTC to make a move. Price is converging. Volume declining. Usually signaling a big move to the up or downside.
I talk about HF 21, price and a bunch of other stuff in my vlog.
