SteemHQ.com proudly presents it's second project on Steem: PunkBuster

What is PunkBuster?

@punkbuster is an automated bot that will downvote every 2.4h on content that received a bid in SBD or STEEM.
It's a simple way to remove larger amounts of upcomming rewards for a post. The bot is designed for Steemians who either don't have much Steem Power bound to their account or don't want to use their account for downvoting for whatever reasons.

Bid for Downvote a post

In order to place a bid for a Downvote from @punkbuster, simply send at least 0.1 SDB or STEEM to @punkbuster with the post url as memo. The bot will downvote every 2.4h and the strength will be proportional to your bid sent compared to all bids this round.

The overall downvote value of each round can be viewed here (Voting Value 100%): https://steemworld.org/@punkbuster

Investing and Supporting PunkBuster

Simply delegate any amount of STEEM POWER to @punkbuster and get 80% of all earnings with daily payouts.

Why should anybody bid for downvotes?

That's a good question!

We think that Steem doesn't need anymore Upvote/Promotion Bots - so see it like a countermeasure. The project has a good chance to fail, but there is a free market and maybe there will be demand on payed downvotes, e. g. somebody doesn't have enough Steem Power and really want to make a statement with a stronger downvote for whatever reason.

The project starts with about 22,000 Steem Power delegated to @punkbuster - let's see how it turnes out.

The bot is designed for Steemians who either don't have much Steem Power bound to their account or don't want to use their account for downvoting for whatever reasons.

I hate to rain on your parade, but the only people I imagine using this bot are those using the upvote bots. People hesitate to flag the BS on the trending page because they fear to get flagged back and this bot doesn't solve that because the memos are public.

Perhaps, your intention is to mess up with those spending big $$$ on the upvote bots. Let them buy $500 in upvotes and $200 in downvotes for their competition on the trending page? :-)

On a serious note, I believe you've just created another weapon in the flag wars that rage across steemit.

Thanks for your honest opinion on this topic, I really respect that!
I agree, that the bot is somekind of controvers but I'am really interested in how the free market will adept.

You'll know soon enough.

All you really need for it to take off is to find someone vengeful and have his content flagged by his enemy and you're in the game. They'll spend all their STEEM & SBD flagging each other. Not as you've originally imagined, but still :-)

They could have had put a little more thought into the account name and named it "botbuster!" Say NO to BOTS!

Good Luck with it, I tried it once and it failed.
There was no market there. But maybe time has changed.
Also, You will not make any curation from it..You will need to feed it constantly to grow.

Thanks @isnochys, let's see how it turns out.
I'am putting my personal stake of Steem into the project in order to find out :)
