Curation Trail Attract Whales .:. Why Curation Trail? - Part #2

▶️ Watch on 3Speak

Welcome to the second part of this mini-series about curation trails... In this series, I will try to explain you better about the benefits of curation trails, and I don't mean specific to the trail that I have created, but in general also...

To understand better what have I meant with this title of attracting whales, I should explain to you a bit about curation rewards and how are they calculated... The bad news is that I don't know the exact formula as it is a kind of variable thing... In the past, the "curation rewards curve" was linear and it was "easier" to know how much is your upvote value...

Today, the "curation rewards curve" isn't linear anymore, which means that your upvote isn't always the same... If you upvote the post which is worth under $2, your upvote will have one value, and if you upvote a post that already has, for example, $10, you upvote value can be double...

The same goes for curation rewards... If you are the last person that has upvoted some post, your curation reward will be under 50% of your upvote value... But, if AFTER your upvote comes some BIG upvote, your curation rewards can be even more than your upvote value... And here we come to the point of this title...

When people see that you have a lot of upvotes (regularly... if you are doing consistently posts) which come after the first 5 minutes, they will pay more attention to you and try to upvote your post BEFORE the curation trail do it... and you will get additional upvotes OUTSIDE your followership, and outside the curation trail...

Check out the video as maybe it will help you in better understanding...

PS. Sorry about the wind in the video...

How can you follow the CTP Curation Trail?

Logging into the website, clicking on the CURATION TRAIL menu on the left sidebar, and searching for a trail named "ph1102.ctptrail" (without @) (or click here, and follow it...

In the end, I would like to make an update of my current numbers (September 7st, 2020 - monthly target 85%) on #MyHiveGoals:

HIVE POWER - 16,041 / 20,000    80.20%
CTP POWER - 123,751 / 150,000   82.50%
HIVE Followers - 325 / 333      97.59%
LBRY Followers - 1045 / 1,500   69.67%

Not big movements in the number in the past week, but still better than not moving... The CTP power is moving nicely, HIVE followers number is very close to the goal, and HP is slacking a bit... LBRY followers will not be mentioned at all :)

Join us in this awesome #MyHiveGoals and let's grow together! You can find the original post about the challenge by @robwillmann here:

Its a very nice video to understand about curation trail and curation reward and how can one make the most out of it. Very useful video and I already follow your ctp trail through my alt account. My ctp account would have more CTP tokens staked soon and the target is to have 10k Tokens minimum staked by this year.

Thanks for creating great video.

Thanks for your kind words!

And thanks for following the trail... There are already a lot of CTP members on it, so a nice chunk of upvotes is already distributed to creators on the platform...

I think that some of your posts have been upvoted by the trail... Keep on creating awesome content!

I believe it's always good for curators to see that an author gets upvoted regularly. That's a kind of guarantee, that upvotes won't suffer too much from the reward curve effect. Knowing that quality posts will be uvpoted by a curation trail within CTP, will make the whole community more interesting for votes of bigger accounts.

Exactly! That was the main idea from the beginning... As the reward ratio is 60:40, the most benefit from the CTP curation trail will be for content creators... As a result, I hope that it will bring more quality content to the platform!

And that will attract bigger players and better upvotes, not just in the CTP tokens... ;)

Yes, it can be attractive for others to upvote and get more curation rewards. Glad to see how CTP Talk is moving forward. We will get more in the future.

I see already 10-20% more CTP in "circulation"... A lot of people didn't use their CTP stake for upvoting... Joining the trail, those tokens got activated, and doing its purpose... :)

It's too difficult for me, although I read this post completely. I understand one thing that curating is when you get noticed and you get paid if your post looks decent. I could be wrong though. Thanks you.

Exactly! But there are curation trails that ONE account upvote a post, and others (in a trail) follows and upvote it also (automatically)... That happens when you see that some post receives a lot of upvotes in a couple of seconds...

If you create quality posts and attract these curation trails regularly, you will attract BIGGER accounts also, and start earning bigger chunks of rewards on your posts...

Thank you for responding to my comment. I will try to create masterpieces. I wish you success.

hehehe... Nobody is creating masterpieces here... lol...

I am in :) nice explanation and a good move to have the CTP rolling. A good Whale ;) Trail to be.

In the name of the CTP creators, thanks for following the trail, my friend! I hope it will be beneficial for your curation rewards also!

Interesting to learn about the CTP trail. I'll join that ASAP. Meanwhile, It would e fun to join the #myhivegoals challenge especially when it has to do with Hive tokens.

Thanks for the trail following! And #myhivegoals are fun and usefull... It keeps me focused on the goal, and I see where I have to push more :)

Nice video bro. Keep it up. Followed you to have more update. Thanks.

Thank you for your words of encouragement!
Have an awesome day!
