OUR VISION

The main goal of this curation initiative is the encouragement of creators to share their DIY/Art projects on steem without us making any financial profit off of that.

We fully rely on delegations but we also give 100% of the curation rewards back to every single delegator. Additional to that we are supplying our DIY Tokens to our curators and winners of the upcoming contests in our DIYHub community. Every week we will publish a summary of all the curated posts of the last couple of days related to a specific rotating theme. (Art, Nature, DIY and Music).

THE TIME BEFORE @DIYHub

Our initiative previously started with the name @diytube which has been a curation project focusing on Do-It-Yourself content especially posted on d.tube since October 2018. The team of 13 amazing curators selected over 2500 videos over the last couple months to support various creators in the categories:

  • ART: digital art, drawing/painting, make-up, tutorials

  • DIY: cooking, crafting, homesteading, repairing

  • MUSIC: covers, original, tutorials

  • NATURE: gardening, health, outdoor / survival

The basic model of diytube is a non-profit curation initiative. That means all curation rewards are going back to our delegators without accumulating any rewards in our own wallet. We've created the DIY Token on steem-engine.com to reward our curators and to use those tokens as prizes for contests and other promotional actions. Also our delegators receive tokens on a weekly basis.

BROADENING PERSPECTIVES

The initial idea was to support DIY creators on DTube to push the engagement on DTube itself while motivating the creators. This plan has been pretty successful but because of the masses of non-video content about DIY, hobbies and homesteading we decided to leave this narrow view and expand our perspective on written posts, photography, podcasts and much more about DIY and your self-made things.

We are looking forward to support more creators, receive more resonance of non-video content creators and of course collect more delegations of people who believe in our vision to support the DIY scene even further.

We are open to collaborate with every community, project, initiative and dApp to create awesome contests and all other ideas you amazing people have. If you are interested in a collaboration, just join our discord and get in contact with us!

TECHNICAL DETAILS

The curation service itself constists of a discord server + bot and a few automated scripts being executed in specific intervals via a cloud service called pythonanywhere.com. The whole source code is written in python3 and we are using the amazing beem library by @holger80.

The payout formular for our delegators is pretty simple:

You will earn the exact same percentage of our rewards related to your percentage of the total delegation. We take author and curation rewards into account for this and rewards in SP will converted in STEEM.

For example: If you delegate 250 SP to our service which has 5000SP in total - you will earn 5% of our rewards every single week. STEEM POWER rewards will automatically count as STEEM rewards of course.

Addiditonal to this you will earn 0.1 DIY Token per percent. In the above example you would earn 0.5 DIY Token every week.

We have no hidden details here. If you have any question or suggestion let us know. We are open for every input which can make our initiative a benefit for every actor in the ecosystem.

UPCOMING EVENTS

After our main launch and the first changes to make the service more consistent and fail-proof we will announce weekly contests with changing themes. To not miss them, make sure to join the DIYHub community.

PROMOTE YOUR POSTS

if you post in the DIYHub community and follow the guidelines of our initiative you will be considered for a curation by our team. The curation is never guaranteed but I experienced that we are happy about every knowledge you provide with your content.

Awesome update! I loved the diytube idea but limiting it to just videos was challenging for me, since I don’t make videos. I’m definitely going to hook you up with some delegation!
