Author Rewards Slowly Fading Away
For as long as I’ve been here (four and a half years), my author rewards (on a monthly basis) have been larger than my curation rewards. But that’s starting to change. More and more frequently, I’ve been seeing days when curation has outstripped author rewards (two of them in the last week). Sure, maybe it’s partially from getting fewer upvotes for my flotsam and jetsam posts. But I think it could be anecdotal evidence that the rapidly expanding user base is making earning Hive Power from posting just a little bit harder every day. If so, it’s a good thing. If powering up and and having stake is what it takes to succeed here, it strengthens the Hive ecosystem. We recently passed two million accounts. I firmly believe that by the time we hit four or five million accounts, curation will be what drives earnings for most of the active accounts here.
