Thomas has been writing some articles on Steemit, and he feels addicted to the platform. But, to gain even more audience, he has decided to use some voting bots to turn “Hot” or maybe even “Trending.” But, he isn’t sure about whether or not it is worth it.
Thomas once visited DTube, and there he noticed that you can see the actual value of every single upvote as you press the upvote button. Or, you might not see the value of all the upvotes, but at least the most valuable upvotes. Now Thomas wants to find something similar for Steemit, as he wants to know whether the upvote bots give as much back as he pays for their upvotes.
See the value of Steemit upvotes
Let us say that Thomas pays 3 STD for an upvote using an upvote bot. Now 75% of the “income” goes to the author, while the rest is normally going out as curator fees. That means the value of the upvote of the bot should be at least 33% higher than what you pay if it is supposed to be a 0 project. If he wants it to be a plus project, it should be even higher. And considering that Thomas often uses SteemPress (which takes 15% of all income), it would be great if the upvote had even higher value.
Right now Thomas doesn’t care so much about the mathematics, he is simply interested in finding out whether or not there is a way to see the value of an upvote on his article and videos. And yes, he has found a way.
What Thomas does to see the value of Steemit votes
Whenever Thomas has written an article and he wants to see the value of the votes coming in, he visits SteemPeak. There he checks his own profile and hovers the mouse over the heart, and at once he can see the value of the upvotes on his article.
He uses this frequently to check out the value of different votes, and he is happy about the service. SteemPeak has several other useful functions as well, but Thomas hasn’t looked deeply into those yet. Maybe some other time.
Thomas is now getting a thorough overview of the value of the upvotes of bots and actual people reading his article. He finds it useful and he is very happy!
