LEO Whales Are Spreading Stake to New Users | Curator Reward Leaderboard

LEO Whales Are Spreading Stake to New Users  Curator Reward Leaderboard.png

It's been ~2 months since the introduction of flat curation on LeoFinance. The flat curation curve evens out the playing field for all curators and removes the ability for autovoting bots to frontrun manual curators.

This change has drastically increased the profitability of staking LEO for the majority of our users. It has also removed the incentive to use autovoters for enhanced profit - now the only incentive for autovoting is to save time as opposed to frontrun curators who are manually upvoting posts and bringing value to the ecosystem.

Since the change, many of our curators have moved over to manual upvoting. Many have also started upvoting comments and engagement has subsequently skyrocketed on https://LeoFinance.io. To sum it up, this change has been incredibly positive for our platform and community.

This report comes highly requested from the community. Each month, we do an "Author Reward Leaderboard" post to show the top authors on LeoFinance. This report will run the same type of report but instead look at the Curators.

Curating content (upvoting other user content) is one of the most valuable activities you could do on the LeoFinance platform. LEO runs on a proof-of-stake based decentralized upvote economy which means that the LEO stakeholders (users who stake LEO in their wallet) decide who earns rewards by upvoting them.

In this report, we will rank LeoFinance's top curators by the following data:

  • Curation rewards earnings
  • Number of votes cast
  • Number of unique authors voted
  • Votes diversification

This data will give us a multi-faceted look at how the top curators perform by examining curators based on earnings, the size of the votes they cast (vote weight), the diversity with which they upvote authors and how equal their distribution is amongst those they upvote.

The data presented here is for the period October 16th - November 16th, 2020.

Top 20 LEO Curators by Earnings

As the largest LEO stakeholder on the platform, @onealfa.leo is the obvious leader of the pack with more than 10,000 LEO ($2,700+ USD) earned this month from curation alone. This is due to the sheer size of his stake relative to other curators.

In second place is @taskmaster4450le who also holds a significant stake in the platform followed by @dtrade and @rollandthomas.

Obviously @onealfa.leo is on the top with more than 10k LEO earrings from curation rewards. Its no surprise having in mind the size of his stake 😊. @taskmaster4450le is on the second place followed by @dtrade and @rollandthomas.

This chart is also clearly not the best indicator of who is a great curator. With our flat curation curve, this is basically just a chart of the top 20 stakeholders who actively curate - since the rewards distribution on LEO is based on how much you have staked and unlike HIVE and other Hive-based tokens it is NOT based on frontrunning other curators. This is why we've included other aspects of the curation game in this report to rank the top curators.

Note on the data from @dalz: I have pooled the data from Hive Engine but there were some bugs on a few accounts that I have noticed myself and corrected manually. The data presented here might not be a 100% accurate, but it’s a great indicator.


Number of votes from the top 20 curators

Amazing @onealfa.leo is on the top here as well with more than 5k votes. @taskmaster4450le on the second spot with almost 3k votes. @oakshieldholding on the third place with 2.7k votes in the period.

Onealfa is undoubtedly one of the best whales you could ask for on a platform. Not only does he hold the largest amount of LEO staked, but he also has the most diverse upvoting activity. He loves to reward engagement on the platform which is why his number of votes cast is so incredibly high.

Keep in mind that more than 95% of @onealfa.leo's upvotes are done manually. He doesn't use an autovoter most of the time so he has manually cast over 5,000 votes in the past month. What a beast.

The key to getting a Onealfa "mark of the beast" - as he likes to call his upvotes on comments - is to be a consistently engaged user of the platform. Onealfa is always lurking out there in the comment section of posts on https://leofinance.io. If he sees you engaging regularly, then he'll likely give you some of that 🦁 love.

@taskmaster4450le is another great whale on the platform. As one of the most engaged commenters and curators, he's also spreading his votes far and wide on users he sees that consistently post and comment on other user content.

Number of unique accounts voted from the top curators

The number of votes is not as important if those are given out to the same account. Afterall, one user could game # of votes by simply voting a handful of authors with a low % very frequently.

This next chart adds another perspective to this by showing the unique acccounts upvoted by the top curators:

Again @onealfa.leo is leading the pack. As I said - he's looking for engaged users on the platform and isn't afraid to spread his vote out to a wide number of unique authors/commenters.

A total of 663 authors were voted in this period. @oakshieldholding is the second most diverse curator, followed closely by @taskmaster4450le.

Votes Diversification

To see how truly diversified the voting of our top curators is we will need to dig a bit deeper.

We have seen the number of accounts voted from the top curators. But some can vote a few accounts with large votes, and hundreds of others with tiny votes and the number of accounts voted will be large.

To check how the top curators are casting their votes between the accounts voted, we will be using the standard deviation in the rewards given out from each of the top curators.

@dalz - I have done a similar report on the top Hive curators. The issue with Hive is the curve and voting window which makes the number of accounts voted and weight on them a less than ideal metric. With LEO's flat curation curve, this method makes a lot more sense and brings relevant data to the forefront.

A low standard deviation indicates that the votes are distributed more equally. The opposite, a high standard deviation indicates that the votes are distributed unequally between the accounts.

Here are the top curators ranked by Standard Deviation:

RankCuratorStandard deviation
1oldtimer0.37%
2taskmaster4450le0.51%
3mindtrap-leo0.52%
4oakshieldholding0.54%
5onealfa.leo0.55%
6empoderat.leo0.63%
7trumpman20.76%
8themightyvolcano0.97%
9megavest0.99%
10tbnfl4sun0.99%
11edicted1.18%
12forexbrokr1.20%
13phython1.21%
14rollandthomas1.38%
15dtrade1.44%
16dalz11.79%
17brofund-leo2.13%
18pouchon.tribes2.18%
19leovoter2.33%
20partitura.leo7.15%

(remember: a lower standard deviation = a more equal vote distribution)

@oldtimer ranks #1 for this metric. His votes are the most equally distributed between the authors he votes on.

When we use the standard deviation and normalize the number of accounts voted to the top value the final chart looks like this:

The loveable whale, @onealfa.leo ranks #1! He does an amazing job curating on the platform and also happens to have the largest stake. Dedication to curation isn't just a selfishly profitable game, it's also plays a key role in widening the distribution of LEOs to a wider group of users who are active on the platform and working hard to make it more valuable.

@oldtimer takes second place, quite close to the top because of his equal distribution of votes. @taskmaster5540le ranks in third place.


Final Note

The long debated topic on Hive - what is good curation and quality content? - has been solved to a great degree by LeoFinance. Having a niche community with focused content, engaged users and stakeholders that truly believe in widening the distribution and growing the platform makes holding LEO as staked LEO (a.k.a. LEO POWER) an extremely valuable and rewarding activity.

The rankings above should serve as valuable metrics in showing how the top curators are performing in terms of distributing the LEO token to as many good authors/commenters as possible. The distribution of stake on Hive has been long debated and many have tracked the flow of stake as they try to see if new HIVE is entering a wider distribution of accounts.

With LeoFinance, we've seen a continual widening in the distribution of LEO. Our stakeholders and top curators do an amazing job of spreading stake out to new, engaged and consistent authors/commenters on the platform. This report confirms all of that.

The above is not necessarily a metric for discovering and rewarding quality content. The debate around what is and isn't quality content will be a never ending one because of the subjectivity around quality. With LeoFinance, we all have an idea of what kind of content we like to see and also what kind of engagement we expect from our hardcore users.

It's clear from this report that the community and top stakeholders support users who consistently create content and engage with other user content regularly. If you want to be successful on a platform like LeoFinance, then engagement is 90% of the game.

If our final goal is to increase ad revenues - as one example - to burn tokens and ultimately increase the intrinsic value of LEO based on revenue generated, then the criteria for "quality content" would be based on the traffic that any given piece of content/comment section brings to the platform. That being said, not everyone will agree with only chasing after traffic.

In December, LeoFinance is rolling out our new Microblogging integration to https://leofinance.io. With this in mind, you can see that the platform is undergoing a radical shift in how users are rewarded. Writing the longest piece of content isn't necessarily the best way to earn LEO rewards. Instead, the stakeholders will be focused on users who add value through engagement and the "time on site" metrics.

For example, creating a post and engaging with 50 people in the comment section is likely to be even more valuable than someone writing a 10,000 word article and not engaging with the comments at all. The debate around this is healthy and will likely go on forever. Our goal is to give our users as many possible ways to engage on the platform and gain value from the content they create/read/interact with.

The main point from the above is that ranking curators can be looked at from more than one angle depending on what the final goals are. From a token distribution perspective, the top LEO curators have done an amazing job. Although there is always a space for improving, especially for some (note to self 😊).

Making the changes at the technical level is one thing, having people follow through is completely another.

LEO holders are not investors, they are users. There are a number of Hive whales who do nothing on the chain. They are not involved at all. They just hold a lot of stake, place their witness votes and set bots to curate.

As always, changing technology is one thing, getting people to change what they do is another.

That said, changing the curve along with wiping out the dusting is not a bad idea.

Sure, and some will continue to do exactly that. Nothing wrong with it. However, it will stop penalizing the small voter and it will stop penalizing anyone not autovoting. Two significant positive changes in my opinion.

I agree.

The fact that there is a 2 HIVE minimum or whatever for payout is criminal. The dusting needs to be removed in the next Hard Fork. That really screws over smaller accounts while also discouraging the voting of comments.

I have been on this platform for not up to two weeks and I must confess that I second what you said about Leo whales being the best.

@onealfa.leo certain dishes out his upvotes manually, I can attest to that not because I have been a beneficiary of his upvotes but because he took his time to engage me in my post, commenting on five posts i made. he said I wasn't posting the contents the community wants and also dropped a link which explains what was expected

@taskmaster4450le for me is a hard worker, he replies to all comments I make on his post and most of his posts are always an eye-opener for me. The fact that he makes posts in both written text and videos shows how versatile he is.

@rollandthomas for me is one of the reasons I promise myself not to give up. He gave good lines on how to strive on the platform also giving me life financial lessons. He will forever have my respect. Always taking his time to chat with me while also trying to know more about my country.

I think these people are deserving of the honor and of course the money they make. Their intention purely is to help build the refinance community. I will be looking forward to meeting and learn from more whales. Thanks for this post @leofinance

Those achievements are well deserved by the leading performers of the community.

For example, creating a post and engaging with 50 people in the comment section is likely to be even more valuable than someone writing a 10,000 word article and not engaging with the comments at all.

This is exactly one of the things Hive needs to work on promoting. Engagement and incentives to interact with other users. It's been a mystery to me why the most rewarded posts on Hive hardly get's engagement on the comment section but this doesn't hold true for posts at Leo Community.

Simple unless people do not change their behavior.

There is a difference in the Whales on Leo as compared to the ones on Hive. Many are investors and do not utilize the platform. Thus, to them, it is passive income. They could care less about good content or rewarding other users.

Sad but that is where things are at.

True, with a very special characteristic. The curation will be done manually by people involved in the project, who also aim to increase the value of the platform and of LEO. It is a more win-win for each involved, or this is how I see it at least.

I have said this in many of my previous posts that we need more of passionate users than investors. Investors are all in for their profit but we need the fun to grow this platform. The fun can only be drawn from engagements. This is why I'm very much targeting Sports fans. These are just very passionate people globally.

I noticed this huge contrast from the Leo community months ago. On the general Hive community, it's rather difficult to get the attention of higher stake holders even when one puts in more effort on their content and interaction with other users. But finding big stake holders commenting on new users and actively engaging is a common thing on Leo.

Yes, no disputes there. I would think that early voting benefits manual curators if they upvote posts that end up having more engagement than raising the post's monetary value. As a social blockchain, interaction matters more and flat curation curve of Leo and the community proves that it works.

Yea I was never on board with changing the curve way back when, and am even more convinced now it's the wrong move. Going to linear and getting rid of the voting window all together make a lot of sense on a lot of levels. Plus we need to give people reasons to want to buy and power up HIVE, create some actual demand, thus far those reasons have been few and far between. Oh and while we are at it, the DAO needs a complete overhaul. Way more value going out than is coming in. Anyone out there on HIVE listening?

You know, I was thinking about that lately. What if, like a recording artists song catalogue, a post could just keep on earning.

I would like to add that whales spread wealth to those who deserve it.

There are many deserving posts that are not reached by whales.

It would be cool if we could see what level accounts are getting the rewards too. Ex. Minnow, whale, etc. So we could see if the rewards are being distributed to lower or higher power accts.

Keep up the great work!

Thank you for this excellent report with its quantitative results of LeoFinance's great decision to flatten the curation curve. What cannot easily be quantified is the increase in value of any of our posts when they are supported by quality comments and responses. As a 2-½ year "veteran" of this "virtual world," I personally think they have tremendous value and that Hive's EIP changes in HF 21 / 22 badly eroded this vital aspect of adding value to our blockchain.

Looking forward to future reports of this type! 🦁👍🙂

I don't have any doubts about these top-ranking people. Onealfa, I don't even know the words to describe him and so with taskmaster.
They two go around looking for good content and rewarding them accordingly.
And I like taskmaster for the fact that he engages well in his comment section and the comment section of others.

I pray I adhere to all that is required of them to be worthy of their mouth-watering upvotes.
I am doing my best to interact with the platform and by so doing I am also learning a few things about crypto.
I like this innovation.
I wish all the best in their great work.
I hope they keep using their power and tokens for the benefit of others and even the platform.

I've had visits from several on those lists, both for a post and a comment. I greatly appreciate the support as I work to become more engaged on this platform. I have held LEO and LEOMM since the beginning but have only recently really started trying to become more involved. I am a work in progress. :)

I agree with you linear curve creation reward have help lot of people with less Leo power to vote and stop the race for voting first and the use of autobot is also less if not completely stopped it also let people read the content and learn from it I am one of them anyway @Leofinance got a bright future ahead of it

This guys are tremendous (will not call them monsters, as I hate being on some list :) ) and we need to thank them for that.

Rumors are, that some of them also go outside of the leo universe to raise awareness. By those more and more join each day.

It's clear from this report that the community and top stakeholders support users who consistently create content and engage with other user content regularly. If you want to be successful on a platform like LeoFinance, then engagement is 90% of the game.

It would be cool to add also the number of comments, as I think this will motivate the little fishes in the pond to be more active.

The long debated topic on Hive - what is good curation and quality content? - has been solved to a great degree by LeoFinance. Having a niche community with focused content, engaged users and stakeholders that truly believe in widening the distribution and growing the platform makes holding LEO as staked LEO (a.k.a. LEO POWER) an extremely valuable and rewarding activity.

So, so true!

The main point from the above is that ranking curators can be looked at from more than one angle depending on what the final goals are. From a token distribution perspective, the top LEO curators have done an amazing job. Although there is always a space for improving, especially for some (note to self 😊).

Each of us is unique with strengths and weaknesses, so don't go to hard of yourself. If there was no improvement necessary, the world would be not moving.

I wish some more of the tribes would go this way, there is so much potential for it. Take Gaming, a massive industry and yet the Battle 'steemit.com' clone is down.

For me, Gaming is a topic I write about, and yet there isn't a decent tribe. If I thought BATTLE were going to do something, I would invest in their token.

A community such as this one ran by @acidyo and @strawhat would do well creating a new one, that could be worked on.

That. Couldn't have been said better.

Writing the longest piece of content isn't necessarily the best way to earn LEO rewards.

I've said in multiple posts of mine that quality is relative and quit often a shitpost has much more value in it than a 1000 words long post. Can't wait to use micro blogging on leo and hope that once and for all we will be able to accept shitposting, as some were referring at short posts, as a valuable type of content.

My hopes are that having this incentive at hand we won't see the platform being spammed. It's definitely a great initiative.

There is definitely merit to the short versus long form content. I am more of a long form content however I have been trying to make things a little shorter here and there.

We can only try things out like short content and see how it progresses. If there are particular spam methods that are used, it will get smacked down by down votes which the Leo community has been good at doing with people who post completely irrelevant content to the tag.

I actually understood most of that. Knew those statistics courses would come in handy some day.
This is definitely the way to do things. I never really understood how the Hive system works the way it does, encouraging people to vote as fast as possible to increase their chance of a higher reward. This usually leads to less engagement.
I think Leo Finance has got it right. Or at the least less wrong.

I am still a new user to this platform ( a week old ) and this is great to see.

  2. Top whales curate diversified content / users .

This is what makes the new users stay on the platform.

I've been reading into Leo finance since my first financial blog about a week ago. This has got to be the friendliest and helpful platform I've ever been a part of online. I'll be looking into transferring HIVE into LEO to get started with additional articles and curation.

I have to write constantly for school and work. It would be a pleasure to do so for something you are beginning to love doing. I can't believe I haven't voted for you guys as a witness yet. That is certainly one problem I've resolved.

The more we use it, the more attention it gets and the better it is for everyone. If we could get our friends to be interested in Leo Finance first and Hive second, we might be able to get more attracted to the platform perhaps!

With LeoFinance, we've seen a continual widening in the distribution of LEO. Our stakeholders and top curators do an amazing job of spreading stake out to new, engaged and consistent authors/commenters on the platform.

As a relatively new platform with a still quite bunched number of holders, curation remains really important.

The rewards pool model of Hive is great for distribution and will ultimately lead to us being a stronger, more diverse network of users/holders.

Curators, keep up the great work!

For example, creating a post and engaging with 50 people in the comment section is likely to be even more valuable than someone writing a 10,000 word article and not engaging with the comments at all. The debate around this is healthy and will likely go on forever. Our goal is to give our users as many possible ways to engage on the platform and gain value from the content they create/read/interact with.

I think this is the right mindset to have. I hope Hive takes inspiration from this. It can't just all be about content creators. It's about engagement too. The dust threshold and non-linear rewards were detrimental changes to the first layer blockchain IMO, at least in regards to engagement.

I wouldn't say that the dust threshold was detrimental to the chain. You have to have some kind of way that not every single vote will count towards drawing from the reward pool as far as the voting goes. It might not be well known or easy to understand by many but it's a way to prevent abuse since you need to have some kind of stake in order to attain some rewards.

That being said, there isn't enough focus on engagement for sure. We need better ways to do that outside of modifying layer 1 though, so things like Leo and others who have taken up the idea of rewarding engagement is the best way to go. Layer 1 should be about core functionality and basic rewards, the additional layers are the ones who should make innovative ways and methods for things like this.

I think it's amazing that the Leo whales are spreading their love around! I honestly think this is the best way things are going to progress forward. We need more people to feel they have a chance at the way things work. Engagement is the most important thing in my regards. If folks were aware that just being active in a platform and on the posts was as easy as it was to make a fairly decent amount of rewards, more would do it!

I've been a slight part of the Leo network for a while but haven't spent as much time as I probably should have. I've been getting into it here and there though when I can and it's been great.

The linear curation has been a much needed change but I think that it might not necessarily be the best way to move forward with all of the different Hive platforms and second layers. I think it adds a more robust experience if some areas differ from others. It adds to some issues perhaps but if everything was the same then it gets gamed all the same, I think.

Really interesting stuff as I've been away from the platform. I like where it's heading and will be powering up my earnings.

I cannot stress enough how awesome the microblogging integetration is. Twitter and other social media have now spent over a decade training people to view, engage and create content and long form blogging similar to Medium has always been a bad idea for steemit and hive. I cannot remember of the steemit instagram clone or even the twitter clone they had but to me they were the key to growth and of course people accused them of being thin content.

You guys at @leo.finance have always known the right directions to move toward. Love it!

100% true. We've done what Hive couldn't. One reason is we experimented with different reward distributions. I don'think we should be quick to change Hive rewards. It's just we've proven that maybe a hybrid like this with different reward types is the way to go.

Alfa is truly the "One Alpha" of Leofinance (pure dedication), probably to the whole of Hive. What really astounds me is the fact that he's managing it manually 95% of the time. That's super!!!

Ultimately, that $2700+ worth of monthly curation rewards is an incredible feat. Any one could quit their day job and basically live in paradise (somewhere in Asia) and have a decent & happy life (if you would ask me).

Hi, I see to be missing out with the buzz around my fav ommunity - LeoFinance. I'll be back once the event slated for next weekend is over. I hope to be a part of this chart by the end of Q1 2021.

It's great to see the spread of wealth by the whales of the LeoFinance community. I am that one singular example that grew in wealth through LeoFinance. My robust engagement in the LF community is yet to be one year old but the weight of the outcome outnumbewrs what has been achieved on Hive in the past three years.

I really like the way people are doing manual curation on Leofinance. All thanks to flat reward curve. I have also started casting my votes more on comments than on posts to encourage people who engage through comments.

One thing that I have been missing is commenting on other's posts. I do read a lot of posts but I'm a little lazy to leave a comment on those posts. This post is really motivating for me to start engaging more through comments. I will try to bring it as a practice.

I feel I am missing a lot out not being able to main consistency in publishing finance contents but seeing that there are quite a lot of active whales in the leofinance.io community is quite encouraging.

Now, I might not be actively blogging finance contents because I have reserved a 30 days finance challenge questions for January with the help of @josediccus.

I believe this would massively bring in a lot of authors (authors partaking in questions by the blogging challenge community) who hasn't been publishing in the leofinance community to publish consistently in the leofinance community.

Regarding the stats above, I see @onealfa.leo as a super curator and @taskmaster5540le as a super commenter. I admire their dedication towards supporting authors. I must say, Leo finance have this many authors because of their numerous and dedication whale curators. Kudos to them all.

That is cool achievement for all whales in leo community. The community changes my perception about hive. Last time I doubt how hive will compete with steem, while steem delegate million power to offcial steemcurators to support new members and now trx reward also include in steem wallet. With leo token ans community reward, hive will compete from different angle with steem and always support hive and leo.

It is obvious that this model of curation is the cause of this engagement and interaction. Which we can't even dream of in Hive.
It is also the cause that leads to keeping newcomers. I'm an example, I have ten days in LeoFinance and I have found that I cannot write (yet) acceptable blogs in terms of topics. Normally I should go back to Hive (because I'm doing pretty well there) but the possibility of learning, interaction and curation activity, plus a reward for engagement that can be greater than a reward for a modest post makes me stay active here. With the hope that soon I will be a good writer in the financial field. I felt on my blog or comment the power of the vote of @taskmaster5540le or @phython and I know that @onealfa.leo is waiting for me to grow.

Thank you for offering this chance!

A question! Do we have permission to use this footer from this post on our blogs? It could be a good way to market and multiply this information among our Hive followers.

These types of publications are the example and the perfect reflection of all the good that is being generated by a single well-organised community within Hive.

Manual healing is always the main objective within this ecosystem because that's why we are a decentralized social network, we need both content creators and content consumers and if we only use automatic votes, we don't consume content as such and that avoids the organic growth of the users, of the community, of the whole ecosystem.
