STEEM Overall Inflation Distribution | Authors, Curators, Witnesses, DAO | Who are the top earners from each category?

in hive-167922 •  4 months ago  (edited)

A month ago I wrote a post on the Top Payed Steem Authors looking at the top payed Steem authors. But this only shows a part of the picture since author rewards are around 40% of the inflation (reward pool).

Here we will be looking at the overall inflation distribution, meaning looking at the authors, curators, witnesses and DAO rewards.

Hf21/22 happened back in September 2019, and since then we have a bit more honest on Steem. Looking at the top payed authors should give us some idea. Before that, it was all about bots.

The EIP happened as well with 50/50 split in the authors/curators share. DAO also was introduced taking a 10% share from the inflation.
The inflation now goes as follows:

  • Authors 40%
  • Curators 40%
  • Witnesses 10%
  • DAO 10%

We will look at the numbers for Steem distributed for each category, the top earners of the categories and a compiled data for the overall top earners on Steem.

Overall STEEM Distribution

Here is the overall STEEM distribution by categories.

The data presented here will be for the period between 10.01.2020 till 09.02.2020.

The table.

SBDSTEEMSPTotal STEEMShare
Authors2,861365,258422,915801,27638.11%
Curators00801,910801,91038.14%

DAO52,43100240,13411.42%
Total55,292365,2581,484,1012,102,596100.00%

Note: The total STEEM column contains the SBD converted to STEEM with the average SBD to STEEM ratio in the period.

A total of 2.1 million STEEM equivalent was distributed in the period, out of which authors and curators got around 800k STEEM each, and witnesses and the @steem.dao got around 250k each.

Interesting a lot of the Steem payouts happens in SP, non-liquid. The liquid payments are only 30% share, out of which the DAO takes a large share.

Top earners by categories

Let’s take a look into the top earners of each of the categories.

Top Authors

Here is the table for the Steem Authors that earned the most in the period.

The burnpost on the top. Better than bid-bots 😊. All the other authors are quite legit as well. No bid bots.

Top Curators

The @appreciator account has a 5M SP delegation from @freedom and it’s the largest account that is curating, ergo the curations rewards.

If we take a look at the top earners, we can notice that not a lot of authors are in the top. The no.1 is a curation account, @blocktrades is a combination of witness and curation, @sbdpotato and @howo are Steem.DAO workers, and some more curators and witnesses on the top as well.

All the best

The inflation now goes as follows:

Authors 40%
Curators 40%
Witnesses 10%
DAO 10$

We also get inflation just for having Steem Power.
So your numbers are all off.

I think it's:
15 Vesting
10 witness
10 dao
32.5 author reward
32.5 curator reward

I'm not sure exactly how vesting works, but I think its basically on the ratio VESTS to SP and decreasing it over time .... 15% is a lot and that is inaccurate .

May I ask you how much total is made per day or week?
I get about 1 steem a day with 18k sp and there is atleast 180million sp which means ~10000sp a day is handed out like this. Seems like a decent amount if you ask me.

Mostly it is the curation rewards that are nullified from early voting and that just impacts the other curation rewards.

Overall, inflation decreases over time. 15% remains 15% unless it was reduced to 10%. But the posts I came across all said 15% and that 10% for dao was removed from rewards and not vests or witnesses.

I do wish someone with more information could confirm.

Edit ~ you mentioned 2102596 steem was made over a 30day period that is 70087 a day.

My crude calculations said 10000 a day from inflation which means 80100 is made a day total and 10k is 12.5%. So 15% (or perhaps 10%) is likely correct.

15% is a lot and that is inaccurate .

https://steemit.com/faq.html#How_are_the_new_tokens_distributed

How are the new tokens distributed?
Out of the new tokens that are generated:

65% go to the reward pool, which is split between authors and curators.
15% of the new tokens are awarded to holders of Steem Power.
10% of the new tokens are awarded to the Steem Proposal System.
The remaining 10% pays for the witnesses to power the blockchain.

I will have a look at it .... its probably true.
I was thinking like a 15% roi on your stake .... some confusion from my side ...

Yeah, it's like 2% overall which is why no one really cares about it. Combined with a 12.75% dLease (current price), it means you can beat Steem's annual inflation which is around 13.5% and not out to inflation the same way just holding liquid Steem, or carelessly curating would.

I hope that we can get rid of sbd potato and burn post soon, we're so close to getting pegged again, i've even had some SBD payouts, very small but still we're getting closer

The potato has been going down a bit, but the burn post not as much.

I do love a stats analysis post!

Odd how I haven't even heard of about 30% of those top authors!

Thanks!

You can have a look at those and see if you have been missing out :)

Interesting stats. But also a little bit depressing if I do compare them with my steem income for that period :(

Bring more analysis post like this !

Thanks!
Will do...


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

Learn how to earn FREE BEER each day by staking.

Would going beyond top 10-20 be much more work? Maybe top 50 or top 100? Would be interesting to see a bigger list..

Here are top50 and more author rewards!
If you can see them :)

Awesome! Thx

And the overall compiled

Screenshot_2.png

The bots that transformed in curators make the most these days.

I guess that was the point ...
Also, the once that makes the most are the once with the largest stake.

Excellent analysis @dalz.

Looking at the 3rd table tho...it feels as if we are essentially looking at...freedom's earnings.

Thanks!
Some of the top curators with freedom delagations :)

I guess stake talks!
