Commenting has become more interesting on Hive.png

For a lot of people on the hive blockchain, writing posts with more than 400 words is a real challenge. Not everybody likes or manages to generated such content. Of course people could do videos but for videos you also need to overcome your inhibitions and know how to actually produce them.

Especially for people who are starting out on the blockchain, the alternative is to engage with other people's posts by leaving comments.

This is a great option to build relationships, get used to writing and also to earn some coins on the way.

Comment and earn Hive-Engine tokens

When you leave comments, they are actually treated the same way as posts by the blockchain. This means that every upvote that you get on a comment can lead to a payout after 7 days.

Because of the dust threshold of about 0.02 $, upvotes in Hive often don't generate enough to reach a payout. If all votes combined don't reach 0.02$, then there will be no payout after 7 days. This makes it quite difficult to earn Hive while commenting. People tend not to upvote comments because their own vote will be kind of lost if the threshold is not reached. In such cases, they won't get curation rewards.

Things are totally different for Hive-Engine tokens. The dust threshold for most Hive-engine tokens is much lower than for hive. Some tribes even have linear reward curves which allows to upvote comments without loosing any curation rewards. Thanks to tribes, it is definitely possible to earn tokens through commenting.

A new project that makes commenting even more interesting

My friend @amr008 has created a project that will reward people for commenting. It's a great add on and will provide an additional income source for people who like commenting and engaging.

How does it work?

The program will check all your commenting activity of the previous day. It will look at how many comments you have written and also at the quality of them. All authors are ranked by an algorithm. According to this ranking, 25 upvotes with different weights will be distributed. The upvotes are given by specific accounts that hold a certain amount of tribe tokens.

For people who want to support this project, it's possible to simply delegate tokens to these accounts (check how you can delegate to the project).

There is such a program for these hive-engine tribes:

  • LEO
  • STEM
  • CTP
  • SPORTS

How do you take part?

The only thing that you have to do is to comment. However it is very important that you comment from the specific front-ends of these tribes. Only the comments are counted that are given through:

If you are commenting through these front-ends, you will actually help these tribes to get more traffic to ttheir sites. This means more income from ads and therefore it can have a positive effect on the token price.

Check your engagement statistics

Together with this project, there is also a tool where you can check your engagement statistics of the last 30 days: https://hivecommunity-stats.herokuapp.com/.
It's nice to track your engagement like that and to see whether you are reaching your goals.

What would happen if I delegate my CTP but I don’t comment on CTP front end ? Is there any return except the upvote ?
How different is it compared to delegating to ctpsb ?

Just a conditional question as I’m planning to get very active in CTP too :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

@achim03 is spot on here . I will pay back the CTP ( 50% because CTP pays 100% liquid, so the other 50% is powered up ) to the delegators and since I like doing things differently , although I have delegated to the curation account which is @amr008.ctp I won't take my cut , it will also be given out to other delegators itself , why? to give as much APR as possible to delegators meanwhile growing the curation account too by powering up the remaining 50% .

You just got a ctp delegation from me but keep the number secret please. Don’t want to start a challenge FOMO 🤣

Lol that's the one thing which I cannot do . I like to keep things transaparent lol .

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

The great thing with this project is that it would actually allow you to get a return on your delegation in a totally passive way. In his post he writes that he would distribute 100% of liquid rewards. Since CTP pays 100% liquid rewards, he will probably only pay out 50% which is already not bad. I believe it's the only way to actually get a return on delegated CTP. When you delegate CTP to ctpsb, you help to increase the delegation return for hive delegators to the ctpsb project. Since you delegate Hive to the ctpsb project, this makes sense because your ctp delegation will help generate more dividends :-).

In both cases, it's not necessary to be active in the CTP community.

I guess I didn't answer your other question , as Achim mentioned , you need not be active in CTP .

Both are separate - Delegation + Engaging - there is no relation between them for users .

Thank you ! I’m planning to do both ;)
Maybe even start today with a CTP post !

Amazing ;) That would be great .

I was focusing on only comments , now it seems like it can spur posts too ? I am over the moon.

The link of https://hivecommunity-stats.herokuapp.com/ is a very cool tool.

my question is:
Does using peakd lower any of these numbers?
Should we be using ctptalk or leo directly for maximum effect?

Should we be using ctptalk or leo directly for maximum effect?

If you want to get the chance for an upvote of this project, it's mandatory to use these front-ends. The comments from peakd don't count.

There has already been too much ENGAGE today.

This is what is needed in Hive, an incentive for comments to exist ... Also interaction between the commenter and the user, nothing is worth commenting and nobody responds.

I believe that commenting and engaging are the core of such a platform. The more this is encouraged, the better it will be for the whole platform. Thanks for stopping by!

I like the whole rewards for commenting initiative. However, it will take a mindset shift for me. I have fallen into the habit of commenting through peakd rather than jump from one front-end to another. It may take me a few days to switch my thinking in order to take full advantage of this new initiative.

I also think the new tool is great. I like being able to see my activity at a glance without having to collect all of the data manually myself. I was already trying to keep a count of my comments each day, but I am sure my counts were often off by one or two one way or the other. This will be so much easier.

It's the same for me, I tend to comment 100% from peakd. Mainly because I see the notifications and I can adapt accordingly.

It's definitely a great tool that helps us to track our activity!

Thanks a lot @achim03 . No matter how good a concept is for a project , unless people support it and promote it like you did , it won't be a success . It means a lot that you explained how the project works :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I hope I got everything right :-). While writing the post I actually realized that your project is solving a lot of issues and I sincerely hope that this will take off. If you can manage to get some decent delegations, this will really become a big player in the engagement game. In my opinion it's actually the only project that gives a return on H-E token delegations! I think it's a good idea to keep 50% of curation rewards to power up the account. Like that you won't depend too much on delegations in the future and the project will grow organically.

So far I used to answer comments from peakd. Because of your project, I use now leofinance to answer the comments. It works LOL

!ENGAGE 20

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yes you got everything perfectly right .

In my opinion it's actually the only project that gives a return on H-E token delegations!

This is true , many of the users hold much CTP , SPORTS and STEM but doesn't even get time to curate all the good stuff because they won't even hop on other front-ends , that is the reason I tried to provide them returns in HE itself .

I think it's a good idea to keep 50% of curation rewards to power up the account. Like that you won't depend too much on delegations in the future and the project will grow organically.

Also yes , I want to make every player happy - community owners , users as well as delegators , I figured this is possible only when the account can grow organically .

Oh man, we need to get the new CTPtalk.com front end up and running ASAP!!!

So true , I see many people taking active interest in hoping to other communities and engaging there ( the data I retrieved today supports that theory too ) so once you set up the frontend you can we can use the ad revenue to further boost the CTP by buying and burning.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Exactly, this is a great tool to motivate people to use the native front-ends. This can transalte in more traffic and ad impressions.

I started using the native interface a little now. Still I upvote from peakd , I have no idea how condenser acts with vote multipliers.

On whatever front end you use, you will always vote in Hive Power percentages. So a 100% upvote will always be a 100% upvote for hive. Vote weight multipliers can help you save hive voting power. If you set vote weight multiplier for CTP to 5 for example, you can upvote posts with 20% and get a 100% upvote in CTP.

!ENGAGE 20

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thanks for clarification. so if my vote multiplier is 5 for CTP, so it is always 50% vote in CTP when I vote 10% from any interface.
Looks logical. you saved my effort of juggling.

Yes that's correct :-)

That is quite interesting and I didn't know about it. Just another motivation to keep on grinding within the communities.

I think this can help to motivate people to comment on tribe front-ends. It can bring more traffic and ad revenue for them.

That's right. It's been a while since I posted something due to workload. Commenting is much easier than creating a new post. Thank you for sharing the info about this project. I must have missed that post. I will check it out.

I think that commenting is a nice alternative to be active on the blockchain and maybe earn some coins. Thanks to this project, people doing that will have one more incentive.

I like the fact that it encourages use of the front ends. The only discomfort I feel is mainly how long it takes to comment on LeoFinance versus the other front-ends. It feels like I just sit there waiting for it to go through while on Leo, I am done in a second.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

When new CTP talk will come online, it will be much faster I believe. It's true that when you engage actively, it matters how much time it takes to post a comment :-)

I agree and I am also anticipating the new front-end. The front-page is supposedly using the new system according to a post I read and it loads fairly quickly.

I delegated the moment I finished reading amr's article.

It's an anti-circle jerking measure.

Without delegators , this project won't become successful , nobody wants to put in extra effort just to get tiny upvotes . I can't thank you guys enough .

I believe it's a great idea that fullfills so many objectives:

  • encourages people to comment
  • encourages people to increase the quality of their comments
  • encourages people to use the front-ends
  • gives people a return for delegating hive-engine tokens

It's really a great project I believe.

Where are you finding circle?

I have been averaging 10 comments per day and it is very helpful for my network growth and the community. I get to interact with other community members and learn new things via their posts. Before I mostly create content and consume a little but that has changed this month and it has come with some positive benefits.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The effect of commenting is often underestimated by people. I started in a similar fashion. I wrote my content and sometimes engaged on my own posts. The problem there were very few people reading them.

I then started to take the habit to visit at least 5 posts a day from other people and to leave a comment on them. This helped to increase my network and I also got much more engagement on my own posts. I believe that engagement through comments is the key to success on hive. It get even better thanks to tools like the one I present in this post.

After all, I haven't fully gone through how he does his evaluation. Was a little surprised to find myself on this list recently, although I'm not really extremely active.

He has published an update today, now you also have a nice overview of the performance in the individual front ends. When I look at mine like this;
