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 😊).

Great to see the commitment to this platform. I've already seen it through some upvotes and comments on my posts from some of them.

Amazing how much time you are investing on this platform.
I wonder if yoy guys have regular jobs or are you living from crypto's?
I bet @onealfa.leo can make a living from it :)

That would be great, retiring early because of crypto.

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

A radical transformation in such a short period of time.

The change in the system is only a piece of the puzzle. The fact that the larger accounts are engaging in such a way is what is truly changing things. If the Whales just autovoted everything and said "I will take my 50%", thing would be a lot different.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thanks to flat linear curation for changing the game. It's indeed the best thing that ever happened to the Second layer. Great that other tribes are already adopting it too. When second layer engagement booms, I think Hive would regain its honour.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Who would have thought? Whales spreading wealth ? Instead of jerking each other? Are they idiots or something? If Hive has proven something beyond doubt is that autovoting, the stupid 5 min curve, circle jerking and dumping are the key to success. What are they thinking?

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. Maybe payout every 7 days and if it was say, a holiday-themed post, it would attract votes in cycles year after year. Is there anything standing in the way of making that happen on the blockchain?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Right..No one would have thought about it..Whales spreading Wealth. Everywhere else it's the opposite..Whales trying to make quick money..And that's the main reason Leopfinance is a great place to be at. cheers

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

... Whales spreading wealth ? Instead of jerking each other? Are they idiots or something?

This is a very weird place. And whales here are of strange pedigree.
Seems there are more than one here, who really hates jerking. And hates upvoting other whales.
I have noticed quite a few of such.
They must be very careful not to click that "UP" button on another whale even by accident. 😃 Interesting...

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

On A serious note, I have even removed @leofinance from my leo autovotes because it's wasted VP ;)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Aghh, wasted VP ?! Now I understand.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I hope the top Hive witnesses learn from LeoFiannce except they are overtly selfish. Meanwhile, it's time we pushed @LeoFinance into the top 20 Hive Witnesses.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

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

Example: On Hive many whales vote users who are on Power Down and who transfer funds on exchanges... I think it doesn't make much sense at the moment, although the edited post is still good content

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

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

If Hive has proven something beyond doubt is that autovoting, the stupid 5 min curve, circle jerking and dumping are the key to success.

Indeed, some users got incentivized this way to create their own community and polish all the flaws Hive had delivering a great project.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

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! 🦁👍🙂

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

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.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Flat curation makes life easier tbh. I just like what I like and life goes on.

Also, look at the monster numbers that these guys are doing. Curating is actually very important for token distribution. We talk about their earnings but don't talk about how distributing Leo is important for the community as a whole. Well done guys.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's some serious vote spreading and distribution of the token from big stakeholders! I know I've been lucky with my involvement and commenting so thanks guys and gals. I like the linear move as well because, even though you'll never get rid of the convenience of auto-voting, manually voting on something late in the day, or week, won't get punished. Think it's made a difference for sure!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

There is now incentive to do it plus there are whales willing to do it.

Few are autovoting much, if at all. That is the big difference.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah I like it and this is how I felt things should have been "run" on HIVE but for one reason or another, didn't always happen!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thus we are confronted with showing what works and inspiring others.

In the meantime, we need to create another wealth center which will allow people to gain more influence on Hive.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Definitely, I've been distributing what I can out to others through upvoting comments as well, granted, not as much as what you can but it all helps and won't go to dust (another great thing about upvoting comments here) - now I need to make sure I keep enough HP to make the upvotes on HIVE worthwhile too through upvoting on LeoFinance

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The flat curation curve has been the best thing since the invention of sliced bread!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

We got really lucky here with the people who hold a lot of leo. They all seem to care about the site itself and the users who join. This is probably the best community I have seen in years of crypto.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

They all seem to care about the site itself and the users who join.

This sums it up completely. Those with stake have a responsibility to help the platform grow. Sometimes this gets over looked.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

all this does you a lot of honor, I say it and I really think it :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It is in their best interest as well. The more people who are new succeed the more we all succeed.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

true, moreover what is very correct is that nothing is given here (airdropo for example) but the vote must be deserved.

So does meritocracy exist? Yes!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's why I'm so excited about it... Many are probably considering me a fanatic, but I haven't felt like this since the good old days of Steemit.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Time to make friends with whales

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Or become one ;)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

true

Damn did I really spread that much love?

I really don't have time to make a single post lately, real talk, yet I DO find the time to manually curate on LEO. I am one of those "idiots" that reward comments even at 100%. That requires reading...a lot.

Good to see that engagement is at a really high level.

Just have a look at the trending page on Hive. 8/10 posts have zero to 3 comments

Let's keep showing them the right way

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Keep it up! Curating good writers will keep the good ones coming back.

I think the autovoting and bidbots were one of the worst things to happen to Steen/Hive. Esp. at its peak in 2017.

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

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That is really cool to see how the stake is being used. I will be honest, I was hoping to see my name in that list even though I don't have a huge stake. I feel like I have been upvoting a ton. Thanks for sharing this info!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

You missed a ton if it is still 2,000.

But keep at it, you will get there.

Your commenting is increasing I see. That is a bonus.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I am so glad seeing @bozz around here. Gradually, I hope to get as much people I can to leofinance. Unfortunately none of my real life friends are inclined to join Hive and leo.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

This is my problem too, no one in my circle of friends has a clue about Crypto and family members are just not interested. I've only found one other person (just last week) in my extended circle who has owned Bitcoin (now sold); makes it very hard to digest all the information when you have no-one to discuss it with.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

it's really nice to see for once, whales spreading the wealth and not the same auto voting, circle jerking stuff we had mostly everywhere else! I bet it's motivating everyone both to write, interact and invest in LEO!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

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. :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

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.

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.

image.png

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.

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.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

You want to know why? I think I have the answer:

Flat (linear) curation reward algorithm.

So simple.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

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.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

For this guys are better solutions in here, in this community. Stake miners and LBI tokens and all is set. Content will be not influenced by it.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

LBI is partially since it will power up the LEO and use it to curate. Thus there is a link between the two although not really obvious.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

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.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Already saving up my tokens for buying those. It looks promising and the team behind the token have been shown capable. :D

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Many are investors and do not utilize the platform.

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.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

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.

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.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

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.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

This community is amazing, from @onealfa @whatageek to @taskmaster4450le, the love I've gotten from the Leo community so far has made it possible for me to grow and I'm so grateful. This is why I try as much as possible to support even new good content myself. What a stat. Thanks a million. Leo is the best community

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.

I love $LEO whales

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The @Onealfa.leo man is an amazing person. Giving out 5,000 manual upvotes in a month is a terrible stride. He's my motivation for giving out upvotes just as @Taskmaster4450le is my motivation for engagement since Day 1 of engaging the LeoFinance community.

It's great to see this stat. Thanks Dalz and Khal.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It was awesome to see these stats, the top 3 are just unstoppable. I'm looking forward to the next one because I was a lot more active and voted more comments.

Again a role model for the Hive blockchain, if all whales would act like this the ecosystem Hive would have a much better standing I assume. Great stuff, like the transparent ranking!

Posted Using LeoFinance

To be honest, without Taskmaster and Onealfa's precious efforts, it would be difficult for us people to enhance engagement in such a dedicated way. We owe them our sincere thanks 😌

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

If only this was the model followed by hive. I was disappointed to read the proposed changes to the curve and voting window. When you see success elsewhere such as we have here them surely it's a no-brainer to copy it!?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I'm truly impressed by @onealfa.leo He has helped a lot to make this platform great. @oldtimer & @taskmaster5540le are amazing people too. They have certainly helped my account grow. The best part is the comment voting actually.

Sometimes I earn more from comments than from my posts. That's a huge incentive to just engage with people and provide something valuable. I'm so impressed by the stats. They are so much better than what I expected. I hope people outside of LEO will see this stats and realize how great a community we have become.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Well as everyone on hive can see this post, and so the comments ... and since @theycallmedan started posting from the Leo frontend too, we can have hope that he's also reading this post. And learns something out of this.

The statistics do speak for themselves, right?

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.

Sometimes I earn more from comments than from my posts.
That is amazing. Commenting I think easier than creating a post. It is like a real conversation.

And there's a lot you can still learn from these conversations. I know I've learned a lot :)

Yeah, @oldtimer is one other whale that's really ding big and not really noticed. He's always been a good guy. I remember how he helped me to grow my APPICS token some months ago on Steem.

Best part is @oldtimer spread around votes over a great may users. That should give lots of motivation to keep posting. That's a very important service to be honest. I guess we too will have to do that more and more when our stakes are big enough to make difference.

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.

Wealth spreading is one Financial advice my Dad told me far back but I didn't understand it. I'll share some more insights on this soon on my blog.

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

  1. The biggest whale on the platform curates manually
  2. Top whales curate diversified content / users .

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

I agree, when the large stakeholders are out in the platform helping it grow, engage with users and keep things moving, this is the best way for things to prosper.

I'm glad that you started to use the platform, being on hive! It's a fantastic little secret that many don't take advantage of. I haven't been using it as often as I should have myself, but I am making a conscious effort to use it more!

Great to see things evolving and the community pulling together with such strong numbers. What I appreciate around is the distribution of votes for the content around here and the support given to new users, as well encouraging existing ones to keep on producing. I would say that THIS IS THE WAY to make LEO FINANCE the greatest community that shapes others as well.

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.

Thanks for shout friend.

There was days when I used to read each and every post on Leofinance but I am unable to do so now. I will just say you to continue even you think you are not getting whale votes.

Most importantly ,keep commenting , It really keep you engaged, learned and of course pays in Leofinance.

I wish I was here in those days ...

Thanks a lot for the advice, of course I don't think I will receive many such votes until I bring something of value in my posts.

That's what I intend to do, the best interaction possible, is the easiest method for me now.

Interesting data. I love that you guys share this. It's neat bei g able to visualize the data and being able to see how the token is being distributed via upvotes.

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!

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).

Kudos! @onealfa / @onealfa.leo

Awesomeness!

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.
