We recently made a change that reduces author rewards for posts that are not created on the https://stemgeeks.net site. The idea was to encourage users to use the official front end and reduce the rewards earned by those just adding the tag to their post to gain additional rewards.
It appears to be working really well, I am currently seeing around 500+ STEM tokens being reserved for burning daily since the change. As the weekly reward pool on STEMGeeks is roughly 12,550 Tokens/week. We are burning roughly 31% of the tokens a week. STEMGeeks weekly inflation is less than half other tribes. A lot of tokens are being taken out of the supply.
While a large amount of tokens being systematically burned is a good thing for the tribe, I would like to see more STEM authors getting good rewards. There is very little competition on STEMGeeks, STEM is not nearly as popular topic as crypto.
I am looking at ways to introduce STEMGeeks to universities and schools to see if we can greatly increase our userbase. These users will most likely be using the STEMGeeks front end and receiving full author rewards for their contributions.
This is a great time to contribute content to STEMGeeks as the few that are right now are earning the bulk of the tokens.
Curators are making full curation rewards regardless if a post is made on our front end or not.
In fact, look at the curation rewards users are making curating on STEMGeeks. It actually blew my mind, but it makes perfect sense. There are not a lot of authors producing STEM content, so the ones that are get rewarded well.
|Account||STEM Power||7-Day Average Curation||APR|
These are the most popular curator accounts on STEMGeeks that mostly dedicate their voting to STEMGeeks. Due to the lack of lots of STEM content, their voting isn't entirely efficient but the rewards are great because there just isn't a lot of competition.
Where are you on this list?
STEM is 80% proof of brain and 20% mining with an inflation of only 7.52%.
