Ecency is a great front-end for accessing the Hive blockchain and is also the front-end I use most to access Hive from my smartphone.

Ecency is available in four versions:

Yesterday my dear friend @blumela contacted me on Discord and asked me if I had written a guide on how to convert Ecency points into upvotes.
Actually I already wrote a guide on this topic but I wrote it more than a year ago when Ecency had another name and Ecency points were called ESTM.
Since then Ecency has really made great progress and has greatly expanded its functionality and especially its usability.
In order to help in particular new users who don't know the functionality of Ecency to convert points into upvotes I decided to write a short step by step guide.


How to convert Ecency points into upvote

Step by step guide


Ecency rewards its users with points: Ecency Points.

Depending on the type of action you perform on Ecency, you receive a certain number of points.
For example, you receive Ecency points when you:

  • write a post and publish it directly from Ecency (15 points)
  • write a comment (up to 5 points),
  • vote a post
  • ...

You can view your Ecency points from the Wallet/Points section of Ecency by typing the following address into the address bar of your browser: https://ecency.com/@yourname/points
replacing the yourname with your Hive username.

Ecency offers its users a feature that allows them to convert Ecency points into upvotes.
This feature is called Boost.

I will show you how to perform the Boost operation from:


Boost from https://ecency.com/


1. After login, click on the gift pack image in the top right corner as indicated by the arrow in the next image.

Alternatively you can enter the following address: https://ecency.com/@yourname/points
(replace the yourname with your Hive username).


2. in the next screen you have to follow the directions of the two arrows in the following image:

  • 2.1 you have to click on the down arrow symbol as indicated by arrow number 1.
  • 2.2 you have to click on the "Boost" as indicated by the arrow number 2.

3. A window will open where you need to:

  • 3.1 enter your Hive username in the field preceded by "Post" (Arrow number 1).
  • 3.2 the autocomplete function will display the list of your posts from the most recent to the most dated and you just have to select the post on which you want to make the Boost. (generally it's the first in the list).

4. Next you need to:

  • 4.1 choose the amount of points you want to convert to upvote as indicated by Arrow number 1 in the image below.
    You can convert a maximum of 500 points for a single post and the dollar value of the upvote you will receive on your post depends on the value of Hive.
    Today April 8, 2021 the dollar value of the vote corresponding to the use of 500 pointsi is $3.015
  • 4.2 click on Next as indicated by arrow number 2

5. On the next screen you can choose one of the following three options:

  • enter your Private Active Key and click on "Sign".
  • Authorize the transaction via Hivesigner.
  • authorize the transaction via Hive Keychain (my preferred method)

6. Operation completed. You will receive a confirmation message from Ecency and you just have to wait to receive the vote on the post of your choice.
Note: the vote may arrive on your post even after a few hours because your post must be evaluated by the Ecency curators who have the task of verifying whether your post meets certain requirements.


Boost from Ecency app for Android


If you have installed the Android version of Ecency on your smartphone the Boost operation is even easier because it requires fewer steps.
In the following image I've shown you all the steps to perform (Arrows 1-4):
1. Once you have chosen the post on which you want to perform the operation of Boost you must click on the symbol of the three gray circles as indicated by arrow number 1
2. Then you have to click on Boost (arrow number 2)
3. then you have to select the quantity of points that you want to convert using the two buttons + and -.
4. Finally you have to click on Next as indicated by arrow number 4.

Requirements for receiving upvote from Ecency


1. You must use Ecency's editor to write and publish your post.

2. Your post must meet Ecency's quality criteria.
A post that required little effort is unlikely to receive an upvote.
In this case the points will be returned to you and you can use them for another post.

3. You must not have already received an upvote from Ecency on the post you selected.

4. Your post must be original (copy-paste or plagiarism is not allowed).


I hope you liked this guide and I thank you for taking the time to read it :)

Sono io l'artefice della domanda originale a @blumela , lo confesso!
In sostanza si possono trasformare gli Ecency Point in HP, se ho capito bene 🤔

Ciao @bencwarmer si in pratica è così.
Tecnicamente i voti di ecency si trasformano in upvote e quindi dopo 7 giorni dalla pubblicazione del post avrai la metà del voto di Ecency in HP se hai settato il pagamento dei tuoi post al 100% in HP altrimenti riceverai il 50% del voto di ecency diviso tra HP e HBD ;)

@libertycrypto27, un altro post eccellente da parte tua. Anche a me diversi utenti hanno chiesto di parlare di Ecency e di spiegarne alcune funzionalità. Ancora però io non ho fatto nulla, eventualmente gli giro questo post in inglese. Sto notando che questa applicazione sta attirando interesse.

Grazie del commento caro @stefano.massari
se ti interessa ho pubbllicato anche la versione in italiano nella sezione posts del mio blog ;)

Grazie per la segnalazione.. mi interessa

Command accepted!

Esatto è proprio così ;)
Per quanto riguarda le BEER non puoi ancora mandarle perchè devi avere 24 token BEER su hive engine messe in stake mentre per mandare i LUV hai bisogno di averne 5
Per farti arrivare prima alle 24 BEER te ne mando subito un altro pò !BEER ;)

E si possono anche trasferire ad un altro utente e su app android c'è uno spin che permette di guadagnare Ecency Point ogni 24h...tipo faucet

Hai visto che sei diventato un super esperto di ecency, bravo ;)
Si ho scritto un post tempo fa sullo spin di ecency
Penso che ecency sia al momento la miglior opzione per accedere ad Hive da smartphone
!BEER

Si, vero!!! Adesso che ho capito come utilizzarla e che ho scoperto l'esistenza degli Ecency Point credo la utilizzerò di più! 😜

Sorry, you don't have enough staked BEER in your account. You need 24 BEER in your virtual fridge to give some of your BEER to others. To view or trade BEER go to hive-engine.com
