We are happy to announce, @steem-sri.lanka just passed the 100 000 SP milestone.
Steem Sri Lanka community created on Sep 12, 2020. After a month, on Oct 24, 2020, with the following comment, the idea of creating a community curator account came out.

|70 000||Feb 16, 2021||33|

|91 000||Apr 07, 2021||52|
|100 000||Apr 12, 2021||63|
Within 7 months, we were able to pass 100K SP with massive help from members both from Sri Lanka and other countries.
Secrets of Success
The best strength we have is our members. Almost every member continuously increases the delegations and holds their steem power for a long time in @steem-sri.lanka. They are supporting to keep the account stable during ups and downs of other delegators.
Support from other countries
We have delegators from all over the world including Bangladesh, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, New zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia Singapore, , Uganda, Ukraine, United State and Venezuela. Most of the larger delegators are from other countries. The support they are giving is unforgettable. ( @steem-agora - 10K, @steem.history - 8K, steemcurator01 - 7.2K , @yohan2on - 5K, @damithudaya (SL) - 4.7K )
Broader support we give over the steemit
Our curation support goes beyond the community. We curate good posts by selecting and also curate posts submitted via discord post promotions. It helped us create a good reputation as a curator account. Our favour is creative writings and useful articles/activities that take less attention.
Protecting the trust of delegators and higher return in terms of rewards
@steem-sri.lanka returns 80% of the curation rewards to delegators as per percentage of their delegation. We don’t use bias when calculating returns. So that both larger delegators and lower delegators get a fair amount of reward return. We are providing considerably higher upvotes for delegators compared to other curation projects. Mean time all the posters of our community are provided with votes up to the usefulness and creativity of their content. Steem Power is not used for self-voting or any other circular votes.
Behind the Scenes
The output you see as Steem Sri Lanka is not from a single man work. When the community started, only 4-5 posters were there, with very low payouts like 0.09$.. By the time posters increased one by one and now around 30 Sri Lankan members are posting in the community. We never let them to get payouts less than 2$ at the moment and we are continuously working on possible ways to increase the minimum payout.
Our members from Sri Lanka play a huge role behind the scene. They actively join the planning of events by adding their valuable ideas and opinions. Members gave a huge contribution to events like Steem Sri Lanka Contest Series, Christmas Celebration and SL-Charity by spending their valuable time and giving their generous support by Steem, SBD and SP. And they witness how much they received back from the community.
Today in the morning it was 95K SP and the red line you see in the following screenshot is the point we reached 99K SP. After short notice, many of the members started to increase delegations with amounts as they have and finally passed 100K SP within 1h. As a small community, this is the togetherness we have made with all the events we organized so far.
Why am I writing this section, recently we saw some heartbreaking comments here and there by strange low reputation accounts by challenging our activities. I am wondering why they appeared suddenly and disappeared suddenly. We will not reverse our plans and strategies due to comments of reasonless people.
Our next recent aim is reaching 107 200SP before the delegation of steemcuraor01 is removed. In terms of Steem Power, the account has 13,857.48 SP of its own. We are taking the advantage of the current price of steem as well as keeping the account powering up continuously. We power up more than or equals 50% of SBD we get as payouts and the rest of the SBD are sent to hold as USDT. Our plan is to start rebuying Steem at 0.50$ and going down stage by stage as 0.40$, 0.30$ etc.
We already have 100K and we expect to achieve a fast increase of SP at a price change. Our ultimate goal is self-sustainability and producing at least 10$ vote on a meaningful post under manageable voting mana (ex: 30%, 40%) by our own curation account. We have already identified the importance of the power of our main account @steem-sri.lanka and also the need for a strong curation trail in order to achieve this goal. While managing a high effective power in the main account, next we will focus on increasing the power of our curation trail.
Meantime we want to make the understanding of the next generation from Sri Lanka about the importance of powering up, delegating, engaging, and working as a community which is the most difficult part. Leaders must appear to keep the progress of the community.
The community backbone is members of the Steem Sri Lanka community, who have understood their role and responsibility within the context. Thank you for staying around Steem Sri Lanka.
Thank you for each and every delegator who delegated us even a single steem.
