SDCD (Steem Dollar Conversion Day) #1 - SPUD Compatible

in #sdcdlast year (edited)

Hi Everyone,

I have 1000 STEEM that I am saving for the upcoming #SPUD, but I just realised I can do something else within the 3 days leading up to #SPUD, I can convert it to SBD and put in a convert request to help reduce the debt ratio (by a little bit), most of the time I don't have this amount of money liquid on me, so it's an awesome way to keep it safe (like savings) whilst doing something good. No-one can cancel the request, and so that SBD is safe from anybody touching it, and once it finishes, it'll only be a few hours before SPUD. This makes me feel safer about holding such an amount of STEEM.

The fact that if you do it today, it will be ready for SPUD as STEEM is why I am calling this #SPUD compatible.

Lets Fix that Peg, Gamers!

Many people believe that a $1 SBD brings a positive sentiment for STEEM and makes STEEM a lot more attractive, and certainly a $0.60 "Dollar" isn't that great. We can each do our own little thing. If you want, join in using the tag #SDCD (Steem Dollar Conversion Day) today, and I might drive by and curate some of you.

How to buy SBD, and then use the CONVERT function:

Note: Converting May Not be Efficient, and you may lose money by converting. See this comment for the approximate maths of the operation, but I won't truly be able to say until 3 days have passed

1. To Buy SBD, send STEEM to @bank.sbd with the memo swap (or use the market)

Bank.SBD is managed by @cardboard and has a free to use swap function that can convert between STEEM and SBD, this is the easiest way, as using the market can be a little complex, and there is no fee to use this service.

2. Go to SteemPeak Wallet, and Click Convert To STEEM

3. Enter amount and submit

Enter amount to convert and submit. This will take 3 days to process, and you won't see the STEEM nor SBD in either wallet (on SteemPeak you can view the Process)

Monitor the Process:

The post is so bad ass, it got selected by the TrufflePig project as an undervalued post worth over 200 upvotes.

Also if you don't have SBD - just send any amount of STEEM to @bank.sbd with memo: swap
The bot will make a trade on internal market and send you bought SBD :) there is no fee or commission for the operation.

Nice and appropriate gif!

This a good idea, but you need a better name for it. Maybe SCONE (Steem CONversion Event) or something that can be easier to market / remember with a mascot / image. Maybe SCONE could be a regular event that happens 4 days before SPUD each month.

I'm taking part in SPUD this time and set off my first conversion in a while especially for it so I was unwittingly already doing this.

OK, talk me through this? I saw this and did a little digging.... (no spud pun intende)

I've currently got 700 liquid steem sat in my account. How can I help?

I added a guide to this post:

It boils down to:

  1. Send STEEM to @bank.sbd with the memo swap (No Fee)
  2. Go to SteemPeak (login) -> Your Wallet and wait for the SBD to arrive
  3. In SBD, next to the send button, there is a dropdown, click convert to STEEM
  4. Enter The Number of SBD to convert in the field
  5. Enter and confirm with SteemConnect or Keychain
  6. Wait 3 Days
  7. Repeat if you're feeling nice!

(I'm online on discord if you need help)

I get that the SBD will be burnt when converted back, but what it basically boils down to for me is, if I convert 700 steem to SBD and back, will I end up with 700 steem (if all conversion rates stay the same)??

No, you will lose out because there is a "hair cut" fee. This was designed to prevent people earning SBD at STEEM's ATH from creating way more STEEM during the down seasons.

It really depends at the moment, I think it will probably cost you a little bit:




So yeah, It'll cost about 0.264 STEEM per 1 SBD you buy and convert, which is quite costly so I'll understand if you don't want to do it. I think I'm losing 50 STEEM on my conversion, but because they've taken off decimals it may be a little better than that. (5.019 I have just calculated from an actual convert)

yeah so it's a loss, probably should put it in the post

.264 per 5 STEEM -> .052 per STEEM
.264 STEEM per SBD


Converting 1 SBD gives you ~ 5 STEEM
Buying 1 SBD from the market costs 5.264

So you'll lose ~ 0.264 STEEM per 1 SBD you buy and convert

That's what I mean, I see you've edited the

It'll cost about 0.264 STEEM per 1 STEEM

LOL Yeah! Wasn't thinking quite straight. Thanks for telling me!

Hey @cadawg, here is a little bit of BEER from @benedict08 for you. Enjoy it!

Thanks for this info @cadawg I was wondering about how to convert. I could have sworn there used to be a function on the Steem Wallet for this but I couldn’t find it. If I get a chance I will try to convert some SBD as well and big thank you for your support of #spud and #spud8 Thanks again and take care!

Hey @cadawg, here is a little bit of BEER from @bluerobo for you. Enjoy it!

I considered waiting for #SPUD, but then I thought why wait if I have STEEM now. Why not power up now?

SO what's the point of the exercise again?

To repair the SBD peg by bringing the debt ratio from > 17% to 9.9% (a la @sbdpotato)

Dear @cadawg

Interesting realization. I never thought about it.

Thx for sharing buddy,
And have a greet weekend ahead :)


I'm gonna most probably try it! ;)


I rarely have liquid tokens... since the beginning of crypto ~ always exchange...
Kinda my belief is FIAT must pour in....
but in STEEM we create true value :)
(that's what changed my behavior to stake) :P

Hey @cadawg,

cool idea for #SPUD

We have a #BPUD - BEER Power Up Day running as well - Join! if you enjoy the third most drunken liquid on earth

Sounds very interesting. I would power up, but have no liquid STEEM right now.

I will have to investigate all of this stuff. I am glad this post was shared on the last #PYPT Show and listed on @shadowspub's TokenBB Forum Feed
