Vote @FullTimeGeek for Witness!!

@fulltimegeek Witness Has My Full Support

It's not like me to recommend a witness I think you should vote for. In fact, I don't think I've ever outright made a post saying, "Hey, you should check this guy out and vote for his witness!"

But not everybody is @fulltimegeek either...

Who is @FullTimeGeek?

Recently picking up the moniker "The Minnow's Witness", @fulltimegeek has been selflessly rewarding users on the Steem blockchain for the last few months (if not longer) by sending out upvotes via his hundreds of FullTimeBot accounts. The bots randomly reward content creators on the "blessed list" who produce regular content and engage with their following. This is not a "paid for" service; it's merely a charitable contribution to the blockchain and its users. Needless to say, it's created minnows out of plankton, and dolphins out of minnows. I'm lucky enough to be on the receiving end of his bots' generosity.

For the last two years @fulltimegeek has been studying the blockchain, getting to know the Steem Community, and developing his skills as a programmer so that he can build (and deliver) high-end applications that connect directly with Steem. I can only imagine the things he's going to create for the community, especially now that he is a witness!

Why Should You Vote for @fulltimegeek?

Like I said, it's not unheard of, but it's certainly uncommon, for me to recommend a witness. There are a lot of great witnesses out there producing blocks for the Steem blockchain, so what makes @fulltimegeek different?

Not to say that other witnesses don't have the community at heart, or that they aren't doing things to help along the "little guys" out there, but @fulltimegeek has shown in many ways his eagerness to make Steem(it) a better place for all. He's also running 4 servers (witness, seed, and full RPC node if I'm not mistaken) which shows some serious dedication to the network (and his projects).

At a minimum, check him out. And if you have some extra witness votes, throw one his way. It's a great way to support the blockchain and all of its users... big or small. He's got my full support, and I love the guy so much, I felt obligated to share the great news that he's running for witness!

I'm glad to. He's a genuinely great guy with some super positive intentions for the blockchain. I'm looking forward to see what he brings for the future of Steem(it).

So if I don't receive any vote from his 100's of bots, does that mean I'm not that much obliged to vote him up as my witness? Sorry, I couldn't understand this equation!

·

Is that a serious question? Are you really asking @fulltimegeek to buy your vote? Call me crazy, but it's that kind of attitude that would exclude you from the blessed list.

·
·

Not actually. I'm questioning the logic behind giving a witness vote

·
·
·

The logic of giving a witness your vote? If it weren't for witnesses, you wouldn't be able to transact on the blockchain. Perhaps you meant giving @fulltimegeek your vote? I feel that those who hold the skills to run a witness server and carry out the responsibilities of a witness, have put in the time to learn about the blockchain, and who care about the network and community, deserve a vote.

And I would hope that anybody who is considering voting anybody for witness would go check them out. This post is not his witness application, and it's certainly not his complete bio, so I would recommend doing some research on him before deciding whether he deserves your vote.

I completely agree with you on this. My comment was in response to your emphasis on the "blessed list". Running of such bots has nothing to do with a witness and should be taken as a personal initiative. To me, considering such benefits while voting is akin to bribery. I ain't against such initiatives but these shouldn't be taken into account while voting for a witness.

·

I see. I was simply mentioning his bots to illustrate his commitment to improving the experience on Steemit for minnows/plankton. I certainly didn't mean that his bots were the reason to vote for him. And I didn't say that by voting for his witness you would receive votes. In fact, nobody should have thought that.. at least I hope not. That's not how he decides who goes on the "blessed list" lol. It's all about content and engagement.

And yes, it's a personal initiative, but also one that should be recognized as the good deed that it is. Sure, he earns curation rewards for the votes he gives out. But he'd be making a lot more by upvoting his own content. So yes.. it's a personal (and charitable) venture. But again, it illustrates the type of person he is. And that's one who cares about the user experience here on Steemit.

And THAT should be taken into consideration when deciding a witness. Not whether or not you're on his "blessed list", I hope that makes sense.

Well, to each his own! I consider "self-voting" to decide against voting a witness but the opposite is just a normal way to function here. So I don't think it should be looked as a criteria for voting a witness. But everyone has his own criteria to evaluate ...nothing wrong with it!

·

I was only highlighting his selfless contributions to the blockchain and how he's helping content creators get started here on Steemit. I'd vote for him either way.. but that's just me.

@fulltimegeek has been selfishly...

Haha, oops :P

·

LMAO, oops indeed. I'll get that fixed now. 😆

well since you're already on the list @brandonfrye , i'll check it out but i came here with a request actually.

SBD is back, and the rate is different, now i used to calculte to out vs. in in a pretty simple way, which pretty easy if it was all steem , right

you give steem out , you get steem in : the difference is plus or minus

however now, i find myself having to extra-check the exchange rate on steem.supply and whatnot, its all a lot more confusing, probably even more to newcomers who are even newer than me and have never SEEN sbd , Sooooooo
(here it comes)

could you, ... or anyone you know, do a post on what this all is

is it better to power up 100% or is it better to go 50 / 50 (when it comes to absolute value that is, say you were talking usd , if i set my reward to 100% do i get more fiat-value or do i get more when i pick 50/50)

say i make a bid 1 SBD bid and it comes back, is it better at 100% powerup or is it better at 50/50

i know all that crud about "it shouldn be for this or that, but for some reason it IS because thats what this thing does, right ? i dont believe anyone here who would tell me its not part of their reason for being on here)

but its VERY confusing at the moment, if possible id even like some formulas to go with it.

You run a bot, you should know a thing or two, you run for witness, informing the populace might not be bad for your "campaign" lol, or maybe you know someone who knows, because i consider all posts before the hardfork giving any explanation about it to be totally useless at this time

so please, here is my request , my upvote will have to wait another 24 hours though, i wanna start over at 100/100 (im guessing you too :D)

thanks in advance or if you can relay it to someone who can explain it in detail that would be super-awesome :))

·

Shoot me a message on steem.chat

·
·

steem.chat huh , its been a while since ive been there i'll see where i can get tomorrow , assuming you have no dicord, see the thing is , what i see : before i used to get equal amounts of steem / steem power when it was 50/50 but now i get less sbd then i get steem power on 50/50 AND sbd is less USD than steem, so from all i can see here i get LESS lol pardon the caps

the last reward here is goldmanmorgan author reward: 0.197 SBD, 0 STEEM and 0.228 SP for @goldmanmorgan/daily-report-20180924 , which comes down to, if i read correctly

o wait no its 1 - 1.018 according to steem supply which still is

0.212 vs 0.228 , now i have no way of getting the exact same reward so i can see if 100% would be 440 exact or if it would be more, it matters at my level and certainly for what i wanna do @goldmanmorgan but i'll if i can get in touch tomorrow somewhere its 4:15 am here , thanks for replying already !! ! !!!!!

IMHO, if you don't want any liquid Steem or SBD, you can opt for 100% power-up and you won't make any loss until SBD hover around $1 USD (in the open market). But when SBD prices gets higher, you should opt for 50-50 payout and convert SBD to Steem to SP from the market to get the best return on your earnings. Hope it helps.

yah @xyzashu thats part of the question, does the sbd rate go up or down depending on usd value, if i get the same amount when it sells for 3usd a piece its obviously better but if it hovers around the same power up and down over 7 days continuous seems like the better option, i just dont know how its distributed, id give someone's arm and someone elses leg for that ... i'm officially sleeping but i had a space trailing me ... i had to get it off my back
i think i did, sed is a wonderful thing, i came in about a year ago and steem sbd was UP there i have seen nothing but down since and still i believe its the age of the utility token, the age of the speculation coin is over

Well, regarding the distribution of SBD; its printing was stopped as total SBD worth went over 5% of total market cap of Steem. The SBD printing used to be throttled when its worth was between 2% & 5% of total Steem market cap. Since this figure was changed to 9% to 10% in this Hardfork, SBD printing has re-started in the current market scenario too. But if Steem prices tank further or SBD prices are sufficiently hiked, it may stop again.

You can refer to my following post, in case you are interested in this:

https://steemit.com/steem/@xyzashu/printing-of-sbd-is-throttling-now-sbd-prices-gonna-rocket-soon-shouldn-t-you-buy-sbd-instead-of-steem

that's an awesome and clear piece, i think someone already told me the actual value on the day of payout stays the same wether you pick sbd or steem so yet this confirms it, i have at least one account where i need calculations on payout so simply powering up 100% is a lot easier in that case, because the rest is speculation, right ?

you can "hodl" on your sbd supply hoping the price goes up then sell it for steem, which is actually a pretty wall-street-type scenario for a place full of people always talking about "how its not about the money", lol. I totally understand the how and why in the design here since the steemchain needs people to power up, that's why you can not choose a 100% payout and that's why you simply can't drain your account in one go, i assume if someone with a few million would do that it would have consequences for the whole network.

makes it both overly complicated and interesting at once : complicated because there's no need for the extra because its pegged so the amount will vary which makes for numbers on top, but that's probably interesting for the speculators who still live in the age of bitcoin lol ... i see, thanks a lot !!!!! im slowly getting to upvoting the replies as it recharges i'm sure i'll get here before seven days tu.png

A vote you will get.
I had a dead witness on my team.
Keep on postin’

Thanks a lot to mention him. He got my vote. You were already voted.

Hi @brandonfrye,
I recently bid 3 steem on your bot and i received my upvote, thank you. But it seems you have made a mistake and refunded me 6 steem for bids that i did not make, i have tried to return your steem, but of course it comes straight back with an invalid url message. I would like to return what rightfully belongs to you but i am at a loss as how to do so, could you please instruct on how i may do so.
Thank you and best wishes.

·

that's very cool to see...that kind of honesty in the world. :) i think something happened with the bot yesterday brandon. some delegators were not paid out..including myself. i figured it was a glitch...and then i saw this comment. thank you both...and best wishes.

·
·

Thank you for the kind words, have a great day.

·

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Like @rawutah said, this kind of honesty is MUCH appreciated. I'm looking into this now to find out the issue. If you want to return the Steem, you can send it to @travelpreneur (my alternate account) where I'll get it added back to the @brandonfrye account manually (and then back to delegators). But thank you again for bringing this to my attention!

And @rawutah, I too am missing payouts. I'll get this straightened out. Must be an issue with the bot software and the updated blockchain.

·
·

Hi @brandonfrye, i have returned your steem to your alt account. Best wishes and have a good day.

·
·
·
