UpFundMe Update: Mining Changes - Comment Command - Contest Winners and More

Mining Changes



Miners are no longer being paid out manually and now give liquid rewards, thanks to @contrabourdon they now pay out via a script once a day. Consider voting for their witness @untersatz (also powers the popular giphy bot). This is the first witness to come forward and offer their help with anything we needed.


We are calling this guaranteed ratio mining, and we feel it has large advantages over lottery based mining. Two weeks from now more miners will be available on the market, but with increased prices. These prices will increase in stacks, ensuring STEEM and Steem Power is available to develop ways to increase value for UFM.


We know this isn't mining described in previous posts and some may feel that we should wait to list more miners, but because of the benefits of guaranteed ratio mining over lottery mining we feel that most miners will want to keep this system. Plus showing the cost of future miners on the marketplace could attract some buyers and increase the value of all UFMM currently being held.

Miner Voting

Eventually miners will vote on major changes to mining, with each UFMM adding +1 weight to their vote. This will mainly be for the decision to switch from guaranteed ratio mining to steem-engine's lottery based mining system.

Both systems have their pros and cons, and it will be up to those who own UFMM to weigh these pros and cons when the time comes and make a decision.

Comment Command (distribubot)



Those who have over 5000 UFM staked have unlocked the ability to reward any steemian on any steem dapp (that supports comments) with a little UFM once per day. Those with 10000 UFM staked can do this twice a day, and so on for increased UFM power.


You can call the bot (if you have 5000+ UFM Power) by adding !UFM to a comment.

The bot will then:

  • Send 5 UFM to the parent author (post or comment) you are commenting on. (5 UFM by default, UFM is sent from @ufm.pay)
  • Upvote your comment you used the command in.
  • Comment on the parent post or comment telling everyone what just happened.


    Distribubot crashes on our server about three times a day, but when restarted it reads the blocks it missed. So if it isn't working, it will grab your comment once restarted.


    Anyone caught cheating our comment voting system will be blacklisted from using these comment commands and maybe even from posting on https://www.upfund.me.

UFMBOT Change



Small change here, minimum post age has been added and is currently set to 15 minutes. So wait until your post is at least 15 minutes old before requesting an upvote from @ufmbot.

It still costs 25 UFM for a 100% upvote, but ufm.reserve follows that vote and gives some of that UFM back in the form of an upvote.

I guess we should give this a test !UFM

How about testing your already upvoted comment for the reward transfer in your wallet?
!UFM

This is really fun and an interesting way to spread awareness about UFM tribe.

You can also adjust the amount being sent by adding a number after the command, but the amount you can send per day depends on your available UFM Power.

Example: !UFM 7

Uh that's cool
So it's 1 per 1k staked UFM with minimum of 5k staked UFM?
Mhhh I need to stake moooooreee xD

Thanks for this tip!

Won't it make more sense if bot comment is in reply to the post to whom UFM is being sent instead of putting a reply to the post being upvoted? Bot can also mention the name of the upfunder who invoked the bot

It's kinda hard to tell with these test going off, but the reply is to the person receiving UFM. They get a notification on apps that support them, and it shows up in their reply tab.

I do have to fix the comment and add a mention, but I didn't code this bot. I'll have to dig through the code to see exactly what needs to be typed in to get that to work properly. It's on my list of things to do this week.

@untersatz's (@contrabourdon and @organduo ) mining script is working perfectly except that I didn't receive my mining rewards on 2nd September. Was that just me, who imssed on it or was that for everyone else?

Everyone did due to all the issues that day...
Will rerun script soon.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

We couldn't send out mining rewards because the whole chain was down, however I see everyone received double rewards last night to make up for the missed day. Great job @contrabourdon!

Cool update ty. I powered up over 1000 ufm from your last post giveaway sent a Screenshot but probably got overlooked. If you could kindly have a look at it for me would be much apreciated ty

!UFM

I dug back 4 days and seen that it was indeed missed. That has now been confirmed and matched.

Yay, thank you so much for the new miner and UFM power! It will take me a bit to get to 5000 UFM, but I'm closing in on a thousand, so hopefully I will be able to start dropping UFM on people soon. :)
Has @ufmbot bought all the leases you said it was trying for so we can start using it now?
I can't drop UFM, but have a !COFFEEA

It has not quite reached a profitable STU, however we just requested 50 leases on dlease.io for 100 SP each. To compensate @ufmbot has some UFM Power, giving added value on the cost of 25 UFM. However this only works on #upfundme posts. For regular posts it still isn't quite profitable.

!UFM

Thank you! :)

I have a few questions.

  1. What kind of upvote value does 2000 ufm tokens give an author? I have votes a few peoples things and it doesn't seem to increase their post value on upfundme.
  2. Will my upvote only give tokens to those with upfundme tags or will it distribute tokens to everyone I upvote?

Posted using Partiko Android

Upvotes will only work for those using upfundme tags, however if you get 5000 or more UFM power you can send tips via the !UFM comment command to anyone using any tag. These tips come out of our pocket to spread the word about UFM.

Right now, each 1000 UFM Power seems to give around +1 UFM for an upvote. This upvote value can depend on whale activity, the more whale activity, upvote values get lowered a bit. It can also depend on the amount of posts in #upfundme receiving votes.

Plus it takes about a week for vote power to work properly, freshly powered tokens (from any tribe) seem to use more vote power per vote, reducing your vote power by large chunks. You can check your vote power across various tokens here: http://scot.today/user/?name=royaleagle
