Hello, LBIer's. I seem to always post about something non-fund related on Thursday's but today, let's after a quick look at how "Help a CUB" is going as we are at the halfway mark with 1 more week for CUB's to apply.

Help a CUB
40 members of the LeoFinace community have made donations and raised enough money to help out a CUB on LeoFinace. There are alot of CUBs on here that are being held back by the fact their whole HIVE/LEO experience is through a mobile phone and very limited to being creative, researching or the content they can produce. We have decided that together through small donations to help out a fellow CUB and help them get to the next level buying offering a free PC/laptop to a deserving CUB.

We have collected around $620 in total which is enough. Thank you again to everyone that went out their way and made a donation.

How much will the winner get?
$500 that be spent anywhere that accepts MasterCard. I'd prefer it not to be local to the winner for fear of returning for cash are store credit. Amazon, eBay, etc are ideal.

What PC/laptop can be won?
Up to the winner. The winner can pick whatever PC or laptop they want, tell me what it is and we'll pay for it and ship it directly to the winner.

Who can apply for "Help a CUB"
So we need a few ground conditions in stone to divide those who can and can not apply. There are reasons for each condition but these are pretty standard and in line, with the sort of CUB we wanna help.

  • You do not own a PC/laptop
  • You have been on LeoFinance for at least 8 weeks
  • Your HIVE & LEO wallets (liquid+staked) total under $1000
  • Your HIVE rep is under 65

We do have to take users words on whether they already own a PC are not but we can track to see how long they have been on the blockchain and check HIVE and Hive-engine wallet transactions.

How to apply
If you meet the conditions above, you are free to apply. Below are few conditions to follow. This helps us to track the posts of CUBs applying and ensure the quality of those posts meet some minimum standards.

  • Use this posts thumbnail (top picture) as the thumbnail of your post
  • Your post must contain at least 800 words with no max limit
  • Cover at minimum these 3 things.
    1/Your situation
    2/ How getting a PC will help
    3/What value you can add to the Leo community
  • use #helpacub as 1st tag
  • Upload from Leofinance.io

We will collect nominations for 1 more week
We have a 5-week time frame to complete this start to finish and we are on week 3 now.

I will look for new posts uploaded to the #helpacub tag at least once every day and then rehive those posts from the @lbi-token account for better exposure so be prepared for a bunch of people reading your post.

Update

We have 1 week down and 1 week to go for collecting nominations. So far, only 2 CUB's have applied. This either means, more people have access to PC's than I thought, people don't know about this incentive and I've been lazy with promoting it are users are maybe shy to nominate themselves. Either way, I will burn some LEO to promote this and ask for everyone to please REHIVE this post to your followers to give this max exposure. We've done the hard work of raising funds, now let's try our best to spread the word out as there's only 1 week left.

To date, we have 2 CUB nominations. Click through the links below to read their posts.

Wow, This is a great way in helping cub members who are struggling with blogging using mobile phone. I wondered why just a few had joined, maybe the reputation Limit I thought, myself would have joined but the rule says "members with reputation below 60". Reputation below 64 would have probably drawn more users- just a thought. I will reblog it to help gain wider visibility

I agree also, teething problem. I have changed it to 65 and will make an announcement on the discord server. I'll also post about this once more in around 3 days. Promoted this post as well :)

Thank you for the feedback.

Reblogged. I was wondering how things were going since I only saw two reblogs from lbi-token.

I hope there are a few more people apply for the labtop/PC.

Yes, only 2 people have applied so far as it says in the post. Finger crossed we get a few more.

People who meet the requirements need to get into this.

Don't people need a PC? Here is the chance to win one. The money was put together by the @lbi-token team so others simply need to do their part and put together a post detailing why you are the proper candidate to receive it.

That said, maybe the criteria is too restrictive.

Perhaps they should be expanded to include more people.

Maybe the rep condition could be higher for next time. Im surprised only 2 people have applied so for. I thought we would have got at least 5.

I'm using a borrowed pc but I'll let this slide. Maybe promos could be helped by metrics that reach those with low reps and also mostly post from phones.

Another way is to actively DM potential candidates for awareness.

The Idea is to reach the right candidate, not just getting the numbers in terms of reaction.

this is a great initiative to help someone needy. This is going to help Leo's community as well since the person will be doing great work after getting a PC. Amazing work @lbi-token
this is life-changing.. Kudos.

Only 2 application? I believe the rep should be adjusted to let more people participate.

I'm a bit surprised as well so few people entered their submissions, maybe the threats made to potential scammers worked too well :)

Each self nomination I've read has a good story...

But none actually hold LEO or LBI.

Is helping one of our own a prerequisite of what you're trying to do here?

I really love what you guys are doing for the community. Crypto is one opportunity where the poor people and people from developing countries can finally have a chance to climb up financially :)
