If you have been on Steemit for a while you will know that there are two ways to create an account. You can simply Sign Up and wait for 2-4 weeks to get an "Account Successfully Created" email, or you can pay some steem to get your account created instantly.
Thanks to recent updates to the platform code, everyone now knows why the signup process is so tedious. It is because creating new accounts requires Resource Credits(RC).
Basically when a new account is created, someone in the network is delegating it some steem to operate (effectively giving it life) and sometimes the general RC pool is low.
Steem miners(called witnesses) and accounts with huge SP(invested steem holdings) can afford the Resource Credits requirement to create accounts en-masse.
Steem Ninja is a dedicated service that aims to enhance the Steemit population by spreading information and making onboarding (Signing Up) as easy as possible.
HOW DOES THE INVITE TOOL WORK?
Like I said earlier, accounts with huge Steem Power(SP) have sufficient Resource Credits to create new accounts. This means most accounts cannot create new accounts as their SPs aren't high enough.
Steem Ninja decided to utilize the delegation feature of the platform to allow normal users the opportunity to create and own accounts.
By delegating to @steem.ninja you automatically own a percentage of the Resource Credits use to create new accounts.
Steem Ninja rewards you with Invite Tokens(INV). And when you have enough, you can cash them in to create a new account. Pretty neat right?
According to their announcement page,
• Payouts will happen every 7 days into your Steem-Engine wallet with the number of INVITE tokens you earn in the week. • We are starting by giving 300 accounts per 7 day period. If you delegate to @steem.ninja you get a portion of the 300 accounts that week depending on how much you delegated in proportion to other delegations.
You can always checkout the next payout date on the timer present at https://invite.steem.ninja/
