When user accumulates the steem power,user generally uses steem power for the economic benifit. The steem power can be delegated to the bid bot,user can keep its steem power and sell the votes or in third option, user can manually curate the content.
The question arises which is the most beneficial use of the steem power?
1.Delegation to bid bot.
This is the most easiest way to get benefits from your steem power but in this case your own steem power is delegated to some other and you are not able to use this delegated power for your own purpose. In short ,your effective steem power is reduced by the amount delegated.
This is one of the options where you are owner of your steem power and share your voting power with bots/pthers and recive payment in return of your votes used by bot. This approach keep you in control of your SP and you can stop vote selling whenever you wish.
With so many scot tribes in the fray, manual curation really become interesting if you are staking the multiple tokens.Currently there are no bid bot delegation available for the tribes so you are required to curate manually. Manual creation encourage the user to read the content but aren't we suppose to read it before upvoting?
I am optimistic that tribes will help in forging the relationship between content creator and curators and manual curation will be the crucial for forging that relation.
I think tribes will be changing the blogging space for good.
