IMPORTANT Steemskate Update

in SkateHive7 months ago

Hello everyone.

Due to the recent events (Steem Blockchain's hostil takeover by @justinsunsteemit) that occured in our beloved #Steem blockchain , @Steemauto services have shut down temporarily so all those who follow our curation trail can't automatically cast their votes after @steemskate casts a vote on your skateboarding content.
Our current vote is 0.04$ - 0.05$ and of course we will continue upvoting skateboarding content posted in our skateboarding community. Once @Steemauro services are back online everyone will keep getting the fat 0.45$ - 0.50$ upvote from @steemskate's curation trail ;)! For now, I advice you all to switch to manual curation so you don't miss our the curation rewards + manual curation has always been more fun!

The @Steemskate Instagram Initiative

If you are using Instagram you most probably follow the @steemskate account but if you don't YES, we now have an official Steemskate account over there. We need to gather followers and start inviting more people to our #skateboarding community here on Steem so we will be starting a fun Instagram #steemskate campaign to get people's attention and onboard more skaters.

How you can help us

It is quite simple. First of all if you don't already follow us on Instagram and have an account over there start following the official Steemskate Profile. Here is the link .
After following us, the only thing we ask is to tag us or use the #steemskate tag at your post so we can start sharing all people's posts as stories. More variety of skaters tagging us and we sharing stories of their posts means a lot more visibility for @steemskate.
And that's pretty much it. Just by tagging us and using the #STEEMSKATE tag we can attract people's attention, gather followers and start inviting more people.

Delegate and earn SKATE TOKENS

Delegators will be receiving a fixed ammount of SKATE TOKENS monthly depending on the amount of SP they delegated. For every SP you delegate, you will be receiving x5 SKATE TOKENS. That means that if you delegate 10 SP you will be getting back 50 SKATE TOKENS every month.
The Steem Power Delegated to us will be used to vote exclusively skateboarding content and give all skaters the appropriate support. Whether we like it or not, a big upvote is a huge motivation.

Thanks for reading and sorry for the inconvinience #STEEMSKATE FAM.



Thanks for staying active and pushing forward in these troubled times.

A question - does snowboarding videos qualify for #steemskate tag and curating? We are in the winter here in Europe after all 😀❄️👍

Feel free to share snowboarding my friend! After all, most skaters (including me) love snowboarding!

Maybe we should all pool our efforts together and make an extreme sports group. At least until we all grow enough to be self sufficient to a larger degree?

Maybe. With extreme sports being? Make a list, please :)

By the way. I am not a skater myself. I am just a father of an avid skate/snowboarder. Our son is crazy about all kinds of skate/board sports. Even freestyle skiing lately :)


Well I might be using the term a bit loosely. Some people would call skateboarding, longboarding, or snowboarding an extreme sport, while others would say it's skydiving, or mountain climbing with no ropes. I just figure most sports witj a bit of danger involved, that isn't the more traditional team sports. I feel like this will gather people who wouldn't maybe just watch a bunch of videos of just one sport, and once people see all the categories they can go to those specific communities to see just that sport.

I agree.

Snowboarding and doing 1440 jumps with whatnots in the air while flying 5 meters above the snow and 30 meters far looks pretty dangerous to me :)

We could talk about that! I have my hands full already with the #steemskate community but I would definitely support an extreme sports group! After all we all love adrenaline!
