After a very positive response from the community, we are happy to announce that SPORTS will be moving curation rewards to a linear distribution starting on December 1, 2020.
Reason for this change
The primarily driver for this change is to improve curation within our ecosystem. As it stands now you are rewarded for being early to like a post if others end up voting for the content you get to first. This was intended to reward curators who found quality content first by giving them an edge with the rewards. Unfortunately with Hive Engine not supporting a reverse auction window it has led to content being voted for speed versus the quality of the publication itself.
By moving to a linear rewards system we hope to encourage our curators to use their voting power to curate based on content's value versus encouraging a system that seeks to front run larger curators who vote after you. Starting on December 1, 2020, curator's rewards will be linearly aligned to the value of their vote.
Another incentive we aim to push is the ability to claim curation rewards without using your stake to reward any posts you feel are not worthy of author rewards. To support this mission we will be adding automated comments to the daily curation report from @sportstalksocial. Like all SPORTS rewards from @sportstalksocial, the SPORTS rewards earned from these posts will be burnt removing them from the supply of available tokens. Additionally the liquid earnings earned in the form of Hive and HBD are used to purchase SPORTS from the market and sent to @null as well.
