Most of the Big Team Lost/Draw Matches Today

Hello guys, Big teams that played their Matches Today, most of them lost their matches whiles most of them played draw. Dortmund conceded 3 goals today from Union Berlin. It was really shocking to see Dortmund go down like that. But it is football and that is a game of chance when you get your chance then you score. But somethings it really amazing to see such score line from such teams. But today most of the Betting companies will make more money out from it. Bacerlona also played draw against Osasuna this was also not good at all watching the Almighty Barcelona play draw. Well that is football. Better luck next time to all the team which couldnt score today.

Liverpool is now leading the table with 12 points

Liverpool scored 3 -0 against Burnely at the home of Burnely. This season Liverpool is on fire because when you look at the way they are winning their matches they are capable of winning the EPL this season. This season epl is based on Liverpool and Manchester City. Because these teams if they catch you they wont joke with you at all they will score you then you will feel like they are really scoring you. But the rest of the teams are not actually given all out I dont actually know if they really want to win the epl or not. But we can conclude now we have just wait for the season to end then we will know those who are the bosses.

Chelsea played Draw Against Sheffield United

Chelsea was not able to take home the 3 points today. It was very interesting to see Chelsea score then the newly graduated team which Sheffield United to scored and equalize while Chelsea try to take the lead. Chelsea first took the lead of the game by two goals then Sheffield United came back with the full force after the first half break. So with in the second half Sheffield United scored the two goals making it square. Then they shared the points with Chelsea. It was sad to see such a score line from Chelsea against Sheffield United because everyone taught Chelsea will win the match today. But it didnt happen. Good luck next time Chelsea.

Manchester United Draw Against Southampton

Hello everyone good day, Hope we are doing great. Today was not a good day for Manchester United. They were not able to win their 4 match played. They played draw against Southampton whiles Southampton was given a red card. To me I will give man of the match to Daniel James because he played all the ball. Manchester United scored first and at the end of the game they conceded another goal making it a draw match. Manchester United has find it difficult to keep clean sheet during the start of the English premier league and it really bad. Also when I heard that Luke Shaw and Martial won play this game then I got to know that Manchester United will not win this match. I really enjoyed the game tho have a great day and enjoy.

Somewhere in the middle would be just fine

Maybe we still need some time in order to obtain the “real” consequences regarding the implementation of the new economical rules at the steem blockchain but I am sure we can get some facts already regarding the famous new Rewarding Curve.

For the ones that still don’t understand how it supposedly works I would say them that, essentially, any post not upvoted massively by a whale or a cluster of orcas , and so, not reaching the 20 STEEM it is going to suffer a huge reduction on its gains, usually between -25% and -50% but most likely closer to the second threshold.

At the current price of STEEM, 20 Steem threshold means around 3.5 USD or $ or whatever the STU equivalent number.

The current setup of this algorithm is clearly benefiting the Big stakers, because, who has 3.5 USD of voting power? do your own calculations but @dalz did wrote a good post about it here and just by using Steemnow from @penguinpablo you can see that you would need at least 290K SP to reach it (or the sum of the compounded upvoters of the post).

The funny thing is that, due to the STEEM price, it is now the best moment to accumulate as much as possible and build your SP, not only by buying but also by getting the most from your posts, in terms of STEEM…and who is getting more now? The already big accounts that in some cases were already big when STEEMIT did wrote its one and only post, more than 3 years ago…and they keep selling…

The theory is that, if this curve acts as a motivator trigger for investors, willing to get a good APR by curating content, then the price of the STEEM token should rise…in theory, of course…

Because what is lacking here is a HUGE work on the marketing side. Investors will not come if we keep being invisible for them, and price will not stop falling till sellers as STEEMIT INC an others big whales will stop selling like there is no tomorrow.

Now that I have finished my rant here, and coming back to the “rewarding Curve” algo, a question for witnesses and Steem Blockchain developers:

We have downvotes to penalize bad content, this is good for everybody in my opinion so you can somehow express your disagreement and also provide an economical impact on bad behaviors…

Are you planning to smooth somehow the rewarding curve?

Would you consider to set the GAIN/LOSS threshold at a lower but more “human” and community supportive level?

20 STEEM is sometimes unreachable even if you are a good content creator because you have to be discovered by those big accounts, with not so many time for curating work… I hope, eventually, they will also change their approach, dedicating more time reading content and less time selling votes but till then, what about smoothing the curve to, let’s say 10 STEEM…?

We have to find the middle point of the two extremities here, nor “zero” neither 20 STEEM threshold.

Virtue is at the middle!!!!

Alternatives to improve the low rewards

6509 SP and increasing, this is the value of my account in STEEM POWER while in USD it is about 1280$ according to Steempeak.

I would not say that this amount of STEEM POWER is low… I am a consolidated and a proud DOLPHIN who has been working hard and investing in the worst time ever to do so and still doing it.

However my rewards today are almost half those of seven days ago…due to the NOT-SO-FAIR-AT-ALL Non-linear Rewards curve…

I have read that, right now, it is almost impossible to get rewarded by upvoting comments… and also that Bid-bots use are really required if you want to earn “anything” from your Hard-work…

Read this post written by the wizard @steemchiller , dev and owner of STEEMWORLD:

https://steemit.com/steemworld/@steemchiller/steemworld-update-managing-the-after-fork-effects

O maybe you are interested on reading this one from @blockchainstudio , who is another outstanding dev you must follow:

https://steemit.com/deathofpob/@blockchainstudio/convergent-linear-encourage-using-voting-bot


Before HF21, I personally was not a fun of maximizing my earnings nor by upvoting “succulent” comments neither by using Bid-bots and, of course, they are not in my present or future plans.

My plan is to continue working, engaging and searching for opportunities of building my STEEM POWER. I am buying again short amounts of STEEM, mainly using BITVAVO and I am planning to power-up some tomorrow, following the traditional SPUD5 day (STEEM POWER UP DAY) set by @streetstyle. By the way, if you want to try out BITVAVO and you want to help me growth my account, here you have my referral, https://bitvavo.com/?a=C658B92169 .


One alternative that I am using lately in order to mitigate a little the reduction of my rewards is @drugwars , I am playing this game once a day and it is currently providing me a relief in DWD (DrugWars Dollars) which is an Steem-engine token currently worth 0.03 Steem/token at the named market. If you play well you can earn a lot of DWD and so STEEM.

(I have a referral also for @drugwars , let me know at comments if you are interested on trying out the game and I will help you building your “empire” by giving you some good resources)


Then, I am always doing an “audit” of my STEEM-ENGINE Wallet, on a weekly basis.

I usually stake half of the tokens of those TRIBES that I am interested on, i.e LEO, PAL, SPORTS, PHOTO… with the rest I simply sell them.

This evening has been “harvesting” Time for me at the Steem-Engine market and I get 43 STEEMP in just one week:

As you can see, there are always options for growing your account, now it is just a question of changing a little bit your habits till now as a consequence of the #newsteem rules…which, by the way, I hope will be better balanced in the near future by another adjusting Hardfork, specially regarding what I think is an UNFAIR new rewarding curve.


@toofasteddie

Probably the most important new about crypto I have read lately.

Ahhhhh, what an amazing country!

Just one week ago that I came back from a holiday trip at Portugal, mostly at Algarve and Lisbon area.

Chatting with my wife we both agreed that Portugal had surprised us in many aspects…

There we found an exemplary country in my opinion, excellent gastronomy, beautiful and clean beaches, preserved nature, modern and efficient infrastructure, healthy industry…

It gave us the impression that the country is emerging from the European economic crisis in a more efficient way than the rest of the southern countries …


… and not only at the traditional levels of the economy….

The Portugal Tax Authority has a very clear approach regarding BITCOIN and CRYPTOCURRENCIES:

“Cryptocurrency trading and payments in Portugal are exempted from tax”

Read the Authority Rule here (Portuguese language) and a more synthetic new here .

Do you think Spain and the rest of European countries will learn from Portugal’s Example?

The Fall of Price Is not the End of CryptoCurrency

If you check the current price of most of the Crypto currency you will see that the price of the crypto has really dropped down. Most people think that when the price drops that will be the end of it then they will start to dump the token/crypto onto the market. The more you drop the crypto onto the market the more the price will drop but the more you buy from the market the more the price will go up. Taking Steem as an example when steem was launch the price was not up to $1 but during 2018 the price of shoot up to $8. Why did that happen, alot of people bought the crypto and started to invest in it. This brings me to how people got to know about the platform. They got to know it through promotion of the platform. The whales of the platform who has more stake and more views on different platform should try and promote the platform to others this is how the platform can grow but we all sit and look at the platform to develop by it self it wont just happen like that because people have to invest in it before we can see growth in the platform. Before the price will shoot up, you could see that alot of people was actively posting on the platform but as soon as the price dropped they all stopped posting. This also get back to the whales. They should try as much as they can to support people on the platform rather than just holding the stake and doing nothing. Some also turn out to power down and withdraw the steem. If we want to see a growth in the price of the steem we all should try and dedicated to the platform and help it to grow like we use to do it way back in 2017-2018. And there we can se some changes coming through.

Alexis Sanchez move is Successful Now

The Chile Striker has now finished his loan deal and is now moving to Inter Millan to continue his football career there. When he came to Manchester United he was not able to perform well because of some small injuries that he was facing. But before he was being brought into the team team much was being expected from him but he couldnt produce more for the team scoring 3 premier league goals was a lost for his side because as such a striker he should have scored more goals for Manchester United. The move to inter Millan is good for him to build up his form there. Meeting his team mate Romelu Lukaku will also give him more morale to play with him. Inter Millan wanted to buy Alexis Sanchez but Manchester United remove that offer from the deal so when the Loan deal ends that will be the end they cant buy him. So now Alexis Sanchez is an Inter Millan Player.

Cristiano Ronaldo Hope to Play One team with Messi One Day

Hello everyone good morning. How was your night, Hope everything went on well. Yesterday the UEFA Champions League Draw was made and then they presented some awards to the UEFA Best players in some positions in football. Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi was around and they asked Cristiano Ronaldo some questions and he answered the question and I felt so happy. He was like, he has missed playing in Spain because when he use to play in Spain, Messi was giving him competition in Spain and he was also given messi competition which made the football game so healthy and it was pushing them forward as they were doing that. They dont have any bad relationship but it is a good one and he is also hoping to dine with him because that has not happen yet. He will be very much happy to dine with Messi and it will surely happen also they have to play one team. Just Imagine Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi Playing one team whom are going to set a your target player to tackle. Any time they meet any team they will scored them lol. Thank you for your time have a great day.
