Here is an excerpt from the introduction post for our new bot @earthnation-bot.
"I am the first bot on steemit to offer 5X up-votes for minnows only!
This is how i work....
I only up-vote users with less then 500 SP, who have NEVER powered down.
I ALWAYS gives at least a 500% up-vote.
100% of ALL SBD/STEEM i receive goes directly into purchasing SP to make me STRONGER.
I will NEVER power down.
Initially minnows are limited to 1 up-vote a day. As more minnows request my services, minnows will be limited to between 1 upvote a week to 1 upvote a month.
In 7 days, my Dad the @earthnation is going to give me 500SP to start turning 0.02 SBD into 0.10$ up-votes!
One day i hope to grow so powerful, i can give out 1$ up-votes to all minnows once a week in exchange for just 0.2 SBD!
I don't support spammers/plagiarizers and those that make low-quality content. Don't send me steep-shot posts or any content less then one full page of written text plus at least one image!
I don't upvote posts older then 3 days.
I ALWAYS issue refunds to those that ask (if you overpay or i don't give you an up-vote).
I will be filing a daily report on the posts i up-vote! Please feel free to support minnows everywhere by up-voting my posts, my comments, and by sending me donations! 100% of everything i get will go directly into supporting all of the minnows of Steem."
We know that by making it easy for minnows to start earning a small amount of SBD/SP on their first posts, it will radically increase user adoption.
Furthermore, the @earthnation-bot will seek out users in the #introduceyourself to tell them about this service and also to link them to this minnow-support guide we made; https://steemit.com/earthnation/@earthnation/introducing-a-simple-tutorial-for-earning-a-significant-income-on-steemit-the-steemit-minnows-guide-to-becoming-a-dolphin
We are requesting as much funding as you want to give this bot-service. The more funding we have, the more minnows we can support.
