100 DAYS OF STEEM : Day 6 - APPICS Delegation


Most people on Steem will be familiar with APPICS.

It is an Instagram type app based on the Steem blockchain.

APPICS has been on Steem almost since the start, and their team have been regular attendees at Steemfest over the years.

It was planned for APPICS to be the first users of Smart Media Tokens (SMTs) on Steem. However, because of the delays in the launch of the SMTs, APPICS worked with the Steem-Engine team to launch their own SCOT token.

Now they are ready to push forward with mass marketing and mass onboarding...



1 Million SP Delegation

To help @APPICS with this forthcoming growth and expansion, Steemit, Inc. has now given them a 1 Million SP delegation.

This will provide them with the Resource Credits needed to set up large numbers of instant accounts for all the new users expected when they launch their marketing campaigns.

It will also allow them to give better curation rewards to their users on the Steem blockchain.



Steemit is delighted to be able to support APPICS in this exciting next phase of their growth and development.

And we look forward to welcoming all the new users they will be bringing to the Steem blockchain.



To find out more about APPICS visit www.appics.com or check out their profile on Steem @appics.



Steem on,
The Steemit Team

SoI am delighted you are supporting this project.I would also be delighted if you can answer the questions I posed in my previous comment which i have included below.
I am making this comment on behalf of @penguinpablo
He is not a troll and provides daily valuable, accurate and up to date statistics for on the Steem Block Chain. They are interesting and useful.

He is also a very responsive and helpful person.
Even tho he is being censored here (which I did not learn from him) he was gracious enough to make available a tool for me to use here https://steemnow.com It is a simple and convenient tool. We need more reasonable people like him here not less.

I have two requests
1 Please restore his account. He may be helpfull with identifying the hundreds of accounts funded by Steemit inc which have only ever been used to flag people. I have a list gathered manually if you are interested

2 Please direct me to someone who myself and the community at large is able to communicate with regarding other issues thatcrop up which are detrimental the the success of the Steem Block Chain.

I love the 100 days of Steem initiative. I am not a technical person s any contribution I make would not in that area. Thanks for considering my requests.

There are still actors with malicious intent here lets not get them confused with the helpful people

Do you think Justin was even given any chance by our community @moeknows?

Isn't it us, who started a war with him? Lead by old witnesses?

At the end of the day your comment also doesn't bring any value. It's just spitting.

No. See for example this for an explanation of why “the witnesses started it” argument is bogus. It’s nothing less than an attempt to re-write history.

Yes, I think he was given a chance. He has been given multiple chances. In fact, he has a chance right now to do the right thing. I'm pretty sure Steemchiller gave him a chance. He seemed to be all in on Steem. I actually thought it was probably a good thing. If I were in Sun's shoes, I would have counted that as a big win. Instead, Sun chose to censor him the moment @steemchiller chose to criticize him. The right thing to do would have been to listen to the wise counsel of a long time Steemian and developer of the most used dapp on the chain. He had a chance to do the right thing, he chose not to.

After he had supposedly "given governance back to the community" he chose to oust witnesses holding out from running a hastily built SF. This demonstrates that, if anything, the witnesses were right about him. Even when faced only with his own statements and commitments, he is unable to control his own emotions and maintain personal integrity. He has shown me nothing to make me believe that he had any other intentions than taking over the blockchain.

My comment would bring tremendous value to a normal person in Justin Sun's position. He may not be aware of the legacy left by those he chooses to war with. He also may not be aware of the how it is still benefitting him and Steem. Any reasonable person would be able to comprehend those things from my comment.

09.04.2020 17:36

Witnesses get block rewards, especially if they put the reg. fee to 6 like justyy is doing. The Delegation is just an additional bribe and trustful sources also tweeted that they pay ~2.500,00$ on top of that.

See what I mean, it's his job to be a witness now. Good for him.

10.04.2020 18:56

I believe he runs multiple witnesses and that pays really well as maintaining a dozen clones don't take much more time than the first instance

Congratulations to Appics for the Delegation of 1 Million SP. Does this mean that SMTs are soon coming on steem? We no more have the roadmap and the levels of activities as per the launch of SMTs. I hope they'll use the delegation wisely.

Any contest for today? We need to earn more steem.

09.04.2020 06:08

Why would it in any way mean that SMTs are coming soon? That's not at all related to doing a simple delegation to try and keep one of the best apps still posting on Steem.

You've forgotten to decline rewards again, and it looks like you're trying to buy back some of the good will you squandered in the coup by using the stake you used for the coup.

I know you probably want to lump me in with the trolls, but I am still the Self-Appointed Steem Pope. I am not ready to give up on STEEM just yet, but I am here to warn against persisting in your misteeds.

This is a public ledger system, but you censored people you disliked instead of those who have been actively attacking the community since long before Sun knew Steemit existed. These abusers of the blockchain have been running rampant since you split the community.

Why are you so carefully avoiding any substantive discussion of the very serious problems you have created here? I don't want to pretend the former witnesses were pure as the driven snow, but your ongoing actions are repugnant and inexcusable.

Repent. Make amends. Apologize.

They wouldn't even need to leave Steem to be welcome on Hive IMHO.

09.04.2020 10:43

But one should not forget that Appics is a profit-oriented company.

Appics users benefit by receiving votes from the community. Because there you can see the contributions. However, bloggers on Steem do not get a vote from Appics that these users do not see posts from.

It's a rather one-sided reward.

I hope and am glad if they then no programmer will also support. There are many who are active here but unfortunately have no support.

You can definitely see a positive movement that Steemit inc. is trying to bring something new to the community.

This will be a great help for everyone and letting the ones who used to be active on steemit to stay active here.

I mean, it´s great and all that you´re supporting projects (as you promised), but where is the transparency? And how is this process being conducted?

It´s been 8 months since the "Delegation Application" process started, and there´s still plenty of projects that hasn´t been replied to (understandably though, as there has been turbulence in the ecosystem).

But to put it bluntly: How does anyone else of us get one of these delegations to be able to onboard users in the same manner?

SMT’s will probably be released on the Hive blockchain first since the Steemit devs who had been working on it all quit their jobs after the #steemhostiletakeover and are now working on the Hive blockchain instead.

Hey Appics team.

I noticed SteemFest was mentioned in this post. Those were the days eh!

What do you think of the 8 accounts being blocked and your delegator actively voting for that blocking 17 Million Steem from entering the markets?

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Steemit Inc actively votes and supported only new witnesses running 22.8888 - a softfork which sole purpose is to block governance & fund related operations for the following accounts:
17 Million Steem blocked from governance or transferring.

Downvoted with SteemFest account for mentioning SteemFest in this scam post.

I condone this message.

You are using the name of SteemFest in a post stored in a block signed by a 22.8888 ran witness, which in fact, blocks me, @roelandp, initiator and organiser of SteemFest, from accessing my own account.

And you are fully aware. It's frickin' ridiculous, childish and blatantly rude.

I can't really decide if this is positive news or not. But let's get to the facts.

Appics have been around for several years now, 2 at least. During this time, they have struggled to find any business model which brings them any sort of real revenue, let alone contribute to any purchasing power of STEEM, themselves as a business, or their "user base."

As before, delegations from Steemit Inc. should be handed out with the intention and use towards fostering potentially high growth projects that do not intend to contend for the reward pool as part of their revenue, much less being composed entirely of revenue from reward pool. In the medium to long term, it is only a sign that the project is under performing and isn't bringing any value to the space.

For some reason, I don't see anybody pointing out the fact that Appics ran an ICO and collected over $4 million dollars. Given how important it is that they have a significant amount of SP for the purpose of onboarding, as well as user onboarding and retention, surely allocating 170,000 usd of those 4,000,000 usd (less than 5% of their warchest) would be the very least that they could do? After-all, isn't the point of an ICO to raise funds for them to spend in mission critical elements of their project? Having enough SP to sustain their purported mass user base of influencers and their followers on the cusp of joining STEEM but inhibited by their paltry "support" from Steem Inc, is surely one of the highest priorities for directing funds to. Would you not agree?

I wonder then, what exactly cost them 4 million US dollars, that after only around 2 years, other projects with far less funding (if any at all) have built far more extensive apps—esteem to name but one—would lead them to even need to ask for delegation and pretend like they don't have the funds themselves? Could it be that the team embezzled themselves with the proceeds of the 4 million usd, chucking a bone at some developers to cook up plausible mvp whilst gorging themselves with the majority of the rest of the "development" fund? Where does this story sound familiar?

This, all the while attempting to flex on other social media like they're some big time entrepreneurs living the high life bringing in top dollar in their business.

Something tells me they're out of cash, or they're too committed to spending whatever's left of those 4 million dollars on sustaining their own raucous and decadent lifestyles and they realise that 4 million dollars between a cohort isn't actually very much. Especially when "business" requires you to purchase 10,000 dollar handbags, and stay at luxury hotels, day in day out.

But you know, faking it until you make it is thing. And I suppose you have to pay to play if you want to attract the attention of people with actual influence am I rite?

Take this HUGE influencer we have right here. He's not a Zac Efron that's for sure, but we'll take whatever we can get right?

... All 1262 instagram followers if possible.. (HUUUUGE)!

I wonder what other mega influential people are now going to join? They must all be queuing up for their official accounts, eagerly looking for those 15 dollar votes everyday cause it's "good money" and obviously way more preferred than posting to a platform where potentially millions of people will actually see and engage with them.. perhaps not.

BUT WE GOT PICS WITH ZAC EFRON.

WE GOT 83k followers on tiktok (but less than 10 comments on any of our videos)!!!!

Well. Now that the delegation is out, we'll see what happens.

Seem that, this is a great way for steemit, supports a great platform like Appics. I'd like the most in the platform is the way they supports their users and even other features who is great.

God Bless!!!
