Another milestone reached: 1,000 Steem Power earned through curation only


Hi there my Steemian friends and followers!

I am known to be a kind of numbers & stats freak and since I just reached another important quantifiable milestone here on Steem, it comes as no surprise that I want to share it with you :)

So what exactly happened? Well, maybe nothing really special for most people but to me, earning 1,000 Steem Power on curation rewards only is a huge thing and I am really excited about it!

It is no secret that curation has become a very lucrative activity after the latest hard forks since curators now get just as much as authors from each post´s payout. Therefore, it is now highly recommended to pay close attention to curation, especially if you are a holder of a sizeable amount of Steem Power.

As you can see in the image below, my daily curation reward (at some 13.3 k SP) is currently close to an average of 10 Steem, which is actually more than I earn through posting sometimes.

I am proud to say I have never powered down and it does feel like my faith in Steem and my long term effort to accumulate as much as SP as I can, are now really starting to pay off.

Undoubtedly, one of the keys to effective curation is autovoting, which allows you to upvote your favorite content creators just in the right time to maximize your curation rewards. There are several applications where you can set your autovotes. I use SteemAuto, which is probably the most popular one.

I know there has been some controversy about the ethics of autovoting but I would say it depends on who you set your autovoter on. I have been really trying to support quality content only so I don´t feel bad about it.

There is actually also some extra motivation in trying to find good content for curation as there are now a lot of new amazing curation projects and teams whose members manually browse through various tags and curate high quality posts and if you manage to find and curate the posts before they do, your curation rewards will be significantly higher. The new system thus motivate authors to create top quality content only while, at the same time, motivating curators to reward it. To me, it sounds like a much better and healthier concept than what was here before. Sure, it still has some flaws but looking at the bigger picture, it definitely seems more promising. It certainly is one of the things about the so called New Steem Era that I am really excited about.

How about you, my fellow Steemians? How much attention do you pay to your curation activities? Have you changed your behavior after the latest hard forks? Do you also use autovoting or do you curate only posts that you read first? Let us know in the comment section below ;)

Wow, great milestone! I don't auto-vote, and most of my curation is manual, so apart from changing the timer on steem auto for the few automated votes, haven't changed a thing. Keep on doing that great curation! 😉👍

Thank you :) And good to know there are still people who do most of their curation manually ;)

Hey Buddy! Gratz on this 1k curation reward milestone! That's a huge number!

I honestly was a little bit sceptical on the 50/50 reward pool but I see now that it really makes sense. I think we are heading in the right direction!

Cheers and a great day! :))

Thanks mate :) Yeah, I didn´t really know what to expect from all those changes but so far, I mostly like it :) I also noticed that some people (including you, I know :) even bought more Steem after the latest hard forks and that is a promising sign too.

wow, you must have been doing some seriously effective curating. I am only at 572 in total curation. :D Of course, I do hope this is going up quite fast now when I Am a bit more active on the curation part. ;)

Anyways, good job my man!

Ha! if you only knew how many extra 1,000 Steem Power you could earn by just 'curating' manually & organically the flamboyant content of certain offbeat blogs. Hahahaha };)

Good point :) I have been trying to do this kind of curation too. This is also what my regular Saturday upvote giveaway is about (discovering and rewarding undervalued content).

Excellent!! then, I'll only have to wait for you next Saturday to penetrate without fear in the 'Twilight Zone' of the steem blockchain to make you filthy rich. };)

None :) I have been just supporting some authors who post quality content in topics that I am interested in (nature, travel, photography etc.) But timing is super important now and that is where the autovoter helps.

Could you do a blog on how you set that up i would realy like to now and i think it would be very helpful for the community :)

Wow! that's a great milestone reached! Well done! :)
I guess this kind of satisfaction is always welcome after hard working to find some cool posts that need to be curated and offered a hand of help :)
Unfortunately, I don't pay enough attention to curating since my vote barely weights 0.02% with 100% vote, but if my vote would be more important I will more than sure give extra attention...
I use autovote only for some communities which are working hard to offer help to creators less valued :D

I know the value of the upvotes might look somewhat disappointing but in fact, you can get decent curation rewards even with a $0.02 upvote. Mine is not that much bigger after all :)

Just like you I am a number freak. I have sheet for everything. Yeah I know nerdy!
In my first year on the steem blockchain I did only earn 47.818 SP as curation, but this year it is record breaking for my account. So far since the first of Jan, I did earn 165.716 SP from curation. And of course due to HF21 this is increasing rapidly. I do hope to break the 250SP mark at before December is on the Calendar!
Indeed autovoting is the way to go! For sure now with the 5 minute window! I do use around 10% of my daily VP at autovoting, the other 10% is done manually!
The problem I do have with the current HF is that it is strange that if I would upvote a rather shitty post from a bigger account, my vote has more value than I would upvote a very decent post from a smaller account. This feels wrong! If you do want to have better incoming votes, you will need to have to support of a big accounts or use a voting service. Strange because that last is something the HF did want to counter.

Cheers,
Peter

Haha I can see you are a number freak indeed :D I love it. I have sheets with my Steem stats too :D Good to know your curation numbers have been growing so nicely, keep it up :) I know what you mean with those bigger x smaller accounts but I think we might well see a shift in this trend soon. There are more and more curation projects that are digging deep in search of hidden undervalued gems to curate them so eventually, it might be this kind of posts that will be generating the highest curation rewards.

It is indeed still early in the newsteem world. I would be fairer to make a decision which was good or bad after a month of two!

Tak sice nesbíráš, ale na přípitek !BEER ;)
Ještě mám dost co kurátorovat, abych svých 71 SP zvedl na 1000 ;)

Díky díky :) Já všechno, co mi na SE přistane, cca jednou týdně naměním na Steem a pošlu si to sem. Ale snažím se ty rundy oplácet aspoň upvotem :D

Ano, zvedlo mi to příjmy asi o 50% před HF 21. Nejedu na absolutní efektivitu kurátorských odměn. Upvotuju přednostně v českém rybníčku, i když bych jinde dostal víc. Mně se vyplatí se tady držet. Jsem na něm závislý. Bez něj bych tu dávno nebyl.
Moje angličtina není ani splendid, ani fluent.

Tak to jsem rád, že ti to aspoň trochu pomohlo. Já taky nejedu úplně na maximum. Pořád se snažím rozdělovat hlasy i tak nějak náhodně a spontánně, podle toho na co zrovna narazím a co se mi líbí. A do rybníčku se taky snažím aspoň jednou týdně nakouknout a něco tam porozdávat...

!BEER (Dávám pivo místo upvotů. Mám ho nepřeberně. Ale neprojde vždycky. Upvote nad 0.02 USD prostě nedám, nemám na něj... A neočekávám, že budu za každé pivo upvotován.)
