Buildawhale Curation Digest 02/09/18

Thank you to today’s curators: @nicnas!


Sweet Africa (part 2)

Author: @fathin-shihab
Curator: @nicnas

-=- The @buildawhale team likes to show off the talent of steem users. Not just the ones who use @buildawhale. This post by @fathin-shihab is one of those finds. Here she shows us a delicious looking chocolate and caramel candy bar that she made from scratch and how to do it your self. If you have a sweet-tooth you may just have to make one of these. -=-


Woman Portrait Sketch (Original Art)

Author: @kaylinart
Curator: @nicnas

-=- @kaylinart has been sharing her art with us since 2016 on steemit. Today we get to see her process of sketching a portrait. Everyone has a different process when it comes to art. But I think that one can learn a lot from how she handles the pencil. Eyes have always been something difficult for me to get the right shape and definition, but she nails it. -=-


The Importance of Saying Sorry

Author: @steemero
Curator: @nicnas

-=- In this post @steemero writes about the word "Sorry" and its meaning. Some people just refuse to use it at all. Especially in relationships. Who wants to admit to being wrong. Then there are those who use it too much. He writes how being the first in a situation to be the one to say this magic word is the strongest. -=-


i ♥ Travel - The City of Gentle People

Author: @dawnsheree
Curator: @nicnas

-=- In this travel series by @dawnsheree, we see Dumaguete, or the "City of Gentle People." This city of the Philippines broken down into its history, festivals and university. Worth checking out and imaging you are there. -=-


Steemit API + Python: Calculate Your Steemit Spending!

Author: @makerhacks
Curator: @nicnas

-=- I have loved @makerhacks ever since I discovered his posts on steem-python. He is sharing his experiences and the processes of learning this library for python as he experiences it himself. In this particular post he shares some code to calculate what he was spending promoting and whether the post payouts makes up for this spending. -=-

How do you get featured in our Curation Digest?

Submit a bid to @buildawhale for 3 SBD or more and collect your upvote - Latest details are available on the Steem Bot Tracker. Or use @ipromote for a chance as well. Our curation team will look through posts submitted through our service and pick our favorite posts. The amount you bid is not a factor in the choice of posts featured in our daily Curation Digest.

Our Curation Digest was built on the idea of rewarding good quality content and not low effort spam. By doing this, we build a stronger better community and support the future of Steem.

My creator @themarkymark (witness) and @buildawhale are strong supporters of the Steemit community and want to see it grow into something magnificent. The Curation Digest is built on that mentality. Reward awesome authors producing awesome content.

If you want to support our efforts, there are a few things you do to help us.

Donate Steem Power

Donating steem power to @buildawhale or @buildawhaletrail allows us to provide larger votes and will increase our trail service to further reward authors featured in our Curation Digest. Currently @buildawhaletrail is in our [PreVote Club] but when we have additional steem power it will focus exclusively on authors featured in our Curation Digest.

Write a post about @buildawhale

We love to see community posts about @buildawhale. We pride ourselves in being different by not selling our votes outside of the bidding windows, manipulating bids, and putting everything we get back into growing. Our new PreVote club rewards @buildawhale users with additional votes and allows Steemians to get valuable curation rewards. Our daily Curation Digest helps promote quality content and feature great authors. Our new partnership with will provide massive rewards to being featured in our Curation Digest. Let others know what we are doing and how we trying to be different and transparent.

Thanks for featuring my post! Having a lot of fun figuring out the API and sharing what I learn :)


hi bro ,I want to consult from you how to use @buildawhale


That would be @themarkymark you need


Just send 3+ SBD to @buildawhale with the post you want to promote in the memo field. In less than 2.5 hours we will vote on your post.

If you want to use a smaller bot, I suggest @ipromote, the minimum is only 0.500 SBD


Oh I see .thanks

I didn't get an upvote, please refund!

Good Digest I like that newspaper picture, looks really old-fashioned and cool. As far as I understood this Digest can be a nice bonus for everyone who is using upvoting services and if you can afford spending about 3 SBD, why not consider sending them to @buildawhale and have additionally chance to get into this Daily Digest. I like this idea and I will definitely try to participate as soon as I have enough of 3 SBD. By the way, from this Digest the most appealing to me was that "The City of Gentle People" post. Good luck to you and your great service!

Great news, Thank you!

Great post .... you also help others ,.. great
Love the artwork ....

This is interesting! I want to learn and read more of your posts! Followed!

thanks for your support and helping the new steemians like us thank you so mut bro keep posting and helping us

blog of the day

So I’ve just realized that @buildawhale exists. What I find attractive about the project is that one has to pay at least 3SBD, which is quite a lot of money with current market value and the upvote is not guaranteed. This should incentivize people to only submit posts that they believe are exceptional, otherwise they lose the money. I tried to apply for the first time so and I’m looking forward to see whether what i deem as one of my better creations pass your "quality test":D.

Could you please clarify what exactly does the amount of SBD sent influence? I guess that the strength of the upvote, but is there any correlation that could be shared with me?

I lack an easy access to detailed information about the project, you could try to improve that. Since i believe @themarkymark who has earned one of my latest witness votes I tried it anyway though:P


An upvote is guaranteed and the amount you bid influences how much of our vote you get compared to other bidders for that window.

Our bidding windows are 2 hours 14 minutes.


Oh I that case it isn’t as special as I thought:D

Soon i am boosted with @buildawhale for my post.So i sent 3sbd to @buildawhale,but i don't receive from you,why.
You can 0.01sbd,why.
I don't understand.

This is my boost post,


You have to wait until the bid round is over, each round is 2 hours 14 minutes or so, then we start voting, and rest again for the next round.

Nice work guys; I'll start sending in my bids.
