Curation rewards / Leased SP

Since my arrival on Steem in February this year, I've seen so many changes on the platform. I guess this is the nature of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. It's so volatile yet so exciting. Since HF21 and the 50/50 reward split, I decided to actively seek out leased SP on dlease.io to see if I could turn over a profit. Here are the transfers I've made to @minnowbooster since I've been on the platform:

According to @steemworld, my all time curation rewards is 626.13 SP.
I'm currently down -50.946 SP. Perhaps this has largely been due to my crappy efficiency when voting. Let's see if I can bring in back into positives again! A lot of my leases have run out or are close to expiring so I'll be placing more orders on the market today. I have another account, @teamstraya, which is leasing SP and trailing @centerlink as a curation profit test. I will report on that separately when the lease has expired.

Memo transfers

Have you ever wondered how much memo STEEM/SBD (0.001) is transferred in a day? I have, so I decided to gather some data on it in a 24-hour period (Dec 9-10).

The total amount of STEEM transferred: 4.316 STEEM
The total amount of SBD transferred: 0.224 SBD

Some notable accounts for sending STEEM memos:

I had actually envisaged the amount of STEEM/SBD sent as memo transfers would be much higher than that. Of course, this is only for a single isolated day and much more data would be needed to get a better idea overall. Perhaps someone with access to @steemsql could find out much faster!

Hope this was mildly interesting for your Sunday Steem reading :)
I'd love to know if you are leasing SP and if you're making some good returns. Please let me know in the comments if you'd like to share.

Yours truly,
@contrabourdon

According to @steemworld, my all time curation rewards is 626.13 SP. I'm currently down -50.946 SP

Does this calculation give a full picture? I don't know how your own-SP vs. leased-SP situation was in the past, but currently your own stake is much larger than the incoming delegations. This means that also the bigger part of your curation rewards come from your own stake, don't they?

I tried to do this calculation for me like:

  • what's my current curation rewards per SP per week
  • what does it cost to lease another 1k/2k/... SP per week
  • how much more curation rewards would I earn with this delegation, assuming my rewards per SP remain the same

I didn't end up with a positive ROI :/

Probably not, but I'm a simple man :P I did the calculation in really, really simple terms...

Let's hope I can at least break even. Thanks for stopping by.

Let me know your tips. I dont do the numbers game much.

Well I'm down ~51 STEEM, so let's see if I can bring that into the positives! I'll report back again.

I've been delegating to @dlease for a while. I wonder what is more profitable - leasing SP or delegating?

You need to do a test, perhaps like this:

  1. Delegate 2000 SP to another account and curate with it
  2. Lease 2000 SP via dlease.io for say 8 weeks

Then after 8 weeks, see what has a better ROI.

A/B test. Nice.
