When I received a link through a blog post I tried to receive this reward. But I failed. But I am thankful that I could not do at that time. At that time my reputation was 35 only. I would have got only 10$.I could not find much blogs on how to convert Bytes into Steem. Yesterday I got success in it.As my reputation is 50 now I received approximately 40 $ worth byeball. This article will help you to receive your bytes and convert it into steem.
There are other article which figuratively explains everything. Refer them also.This is written from my practical experiance. Through this post I want you to know that anyone above reputation of 30 can get Byteball.
Their reward system is as follows.
Steem reputation >30: you get a $10 reward
Steem reputation > 40: you get a $20 reward
Steem reputation > 50: you get a $40 reward
Steem reputation >60: you get a $80 reward
Steem reputation > 70: you get a $160 reward
From each of these you will receive half of the bytes now and half will be locked in by a smart contract over 1 year. So I received 20 $ and remaining 20$ I can withdraw after 1 year.
