$posh updates: delegations to @poshtoken in exchange for daily POSH rewards & other things

in OCD5 months ago

Hey everyone, been a while since I've come with an update on POSH but pleased to announce we've got a nice new update that may interest some of you.

We've officially launched @poshtoken delegation in exchange for part of the daily issued $POSH!

Before I get into that, I realize there's a ton of new users on Hive so here's a quick what POSH is and what it does.

You sign up on https://hiveposh.com/, connect your twitter and Hive account, and after when you Tweet a link from one of the big 4 front-ends and include a #hive tag in the tweet, you can earn POSH tokens depending on how well the tweet does compared to everyone else sharing eligible tweets that day. A comment is placed on the post you shared from @poshtoken mentioning who shared it with the tweet embedded and the rewards going to the sharer (if you want to thank them with an upvote for sharing your post). Daily posh distribution is then posted on the @poshtoken posts and you can track them on https://hive-engine.rocks/transactions?symbol=POSH.

For more info on $posh please refer to this post.

POSH had a fair airdrop to everyone who participated in sharing their Hive links on Twitter before a token was created. Since the whole project was "community funded", i.e. through votes and in the future a possible DHF proposal when we attempt to grow the project, no tokens went to the team. We believe fair airdrops are the way to go even if it means lower prices from sellers for a longer period. The only thing we've paid for so far has been development work to get the concept of POSH going and some further finetuning of it, we're soon entering the phase where things will get a bit more complicated on the back-end but are trying our hardest to keep it as simple for the end user and the vision to continue provide value and traffic to Hive by sharing your posts on web2.


Posh delegation

Okay, so with this we want to start tackling the value of POSH and how we can raise it to incentivize even more users to share and become better at it. At the same time we also hope to eventually get influencers who may not even post on Hive to want to share Hive posts to their followers and get some rewards for it.

The daily issuance has been 500 POSH tokens daily going out to eligible tweets, there's still been some who haven't signed up and connected their accounts through us so we'd know who to send the POSH tokens to, these have instead been sent to @null which means the daily issuance was never 500 tokens as much of it was burned over time. (If someone would like to track these we'd love to see some charts cc @dalz).

We wanted to keep a majority of tokens to still go to sharers but not increase the daily issuance in an effort to make the value of POSH grow and at the same time reward those early earners and hodlers much like most crypto philosophy. That's why we have decided to send 20% (100 POSH) of the daily 500 POSH to delegators. This has already come into effect as of yesterday after a test period of only 10/500 Posh tokens. As many have mentioned the lack of liquidity on hive-engine for Posh tokens, this will give interested investors a chance to grow their POSH bags by passively delegating to @poshtoken instead of having to attempt to buy daily.

Curation

@poshtoken has only been trailing votes until now, but with this change we will be switching it to vote on users who have earned and will earn POSH in the future. If we'll do this automatically or manually is not certain yet, the important thing was to make sure we only curate POSH earners, not buyers as the latter could mean buying votes which we obviously don't want to go back to. This is another incentivization layer on top of earning POSH to also be curated from the delegation of people interested in earning part of daily POSH issuance and we think it's a good mix. Feel free to let us know if you have any ideas on how to improve it or the best way forward with this curation.

Notes

While POSH token still lacks a usecase, we believe this new addition will enforce the price a bit more to encourage more people sharing Hive links on web2. We also hope more people would actively share other people's posts on web2 so the author would make good use of the comments and reward them with a vote on top of the POSH the sharer earns instead of seeing some users knowingly self-vote the comments after they share their posts. We're implementing a feature where if the voter is the same person as the user receiving POSH, it will instead send the Hive rewards of the comment to @hive.fund similar to those who aren't registered with hiveposh.com.

Another thing people may miss, is that POSH is one of the few ways you can earn some rewards again from older content you share on web2. Meaning that nothing is stopping you from taking a post from a few months ago which has already had it's payout and if the time is right to for instance share a post discussing web3 now that it's the hype word on Twitter, you could earn some rewards from that post again through POSH and/or if the author votes up your @poshtoken comment from having shared it. Something to keep in mind!

We'll do our best to add more incentives to @poshtoken until we figure out (or implement some actual usecases to the token in the future). The great thing is that we have a clean sheet of fairly airdropped and earned tokens with a long time of a free market with a good idea from which we then can build more things on top of and we hope the delegation to earn function will serve as another good way to distribute the tokens to long term interested parties.


POSH PETS

As some of you have heard and read about the POSH PETS idea, I have some good news for you! An artist has been found and has been working on them for a while now. While we haven't been in a rush to launch them, we've taken a good time to make sure they'll be the way we want them to be. We've also been in talks with the team at @dlux to assist us with the generation/minting event and giving them a market for traders to trade once they're launched. While I'd really want to show you a preview of some of the NFTs, I think it's better to wait for them to be finalized both in the artwork and them being actual NFTs.

Having said that, we also want to point out that similar to the POSH delegation function which is now in effect, aside from paying developers and artists for their work of making the POSH PETS NFTs possible, all other rewards whether from delegations, post rewards or selling NFTs, will remain with the @poshtoken account.

Those will eventually be used either as a form of staking (POSH Holders & NFT holders receive daily POSH that has been bought up with Hive depending on the amount they hold or which NFT they hold), or buying up POSH and burning them to reduce the supply and increase the value, or a mix of both. We've yet to decide on that but we think 2022 will start to be exciting for POSH and it's DAO like, community funded system to make sharing Hive links more profitable than ever and bring more value to authors, hive and our front-ends in general.

Thanks for reading!

TL;DR:

You can now delegate to @poshtoken to earn daily POSH rewards.
It will curate POSH earners.
All Hive rewards of @poshtoken will be used towards posh holders, nft holders and development costs only.

Let us know what you think in the comment section!


Sort:  

Very nice additions indeed - I'll be delegating some Hive to @poshtoken and also definitely bearing mind the fantastic tip about Tweeting being a good way to bring older content to attention and potentially still earn a reward on it (if relevant of course!)

Keep up the great work and however/whether or not you celebrate this time of year - wishing you much festive fun and happiness and a Happy New year!

Hey @acidyo,

we only curate POSH earners, not buyers

Question on this one.

I have tokens earned on two separate accounts but if i transfer them from @hive-blockchain to niallon11 would that count as earned or bought?

I don't use the hive-blockchain account at the moment but it's linked to my hive_blockchain twitter account and has earned a good few tokens.

It will most likely count as bought unless we place an exception for you, please remind us at a later date when we've set up the curation which is yet to be determined if it's going to be manual or auto!

That would be great if you could set it up. If not i'll be sharing anyway.

I just noticed that i had stacked up a lot of tokens over the past months and it would be nice.

Thanks for the reply.

I do not know if I have understood correctly, can you share a post on twitter even if you are not the author and get posh tokens?
Could you share this same post?

Yes, you can share this post for instance and then @poshtoken will comment under the post (or in this case edit in your tweet in the comment about my tweet) that you shared it. If I then vote it up, the Hive rewards will go to you, and if you get some likes and retweets on Twitter you will also earn POSH tokens.

Okay! I'm going to do a test.

If someone would like to track these we'd love to see some charts cc @dalz

Will look at this :)

Thank you :D will be interesting to know how much of the total supply has been burned so far!

Cant you see this from the richlist

I can still take a look at the dinamics by date etc

That's a great point, lol, dunno how I didn't think of that :D thanks!

U welcome

This is interesting and I'd like to be a part of it. How do you calculate the tokens to be passively earned via delegation? Is it like 1 hp to 1 posh token, daily?

It'll be compared to others delegating to it, right now it's only me and someone else (a total of 800 something HP) which will share the 100 daily POSH proportionally.

This is timely, I was just thinking about this yesterday when I tweeted one of my own articles and got the @poshtoken comment.

Good stuff Acid, cheers!

I'm 109 on the POSH rich list; I need to UP my game! Glad to see news about this project. The pet NFT idea sounds cool. Best wishes to everyone earning POSH and working on the POSH project!

I've been buying a ton over all this time, only got like 1800 in the airdrop and wasn't even close to top20 then, need to stop slacking with sharing hive links and do what I preach. :D

How do you delegate the posh token? I can't stake it so I'm not sure what to do I only have the option to send which I think sends it to the account not delegate?

Ah, should've maybe made it more clear, it accepts hive power delegations. I never wanted to allow POSH to be staked as it serves very little function to just be staked for no reason other than earning interest on it, that's why I came up with the POSH PETS NFT idea that will work similarly to staking but will be worth more as the posh people who hold posh and an nft receive will be purchased posh from curation rewards in Hive that people have delegated to.

Ahhh ok cheers that make sense, thanks for clarifying 😀

Amazing news thus far. I’m glad $posh is gradually improving by eliminating the issues experienced on blockchain in the past. $posh the only way to earn web3 incentives via web2 lol 😆












The rewards earned on this comment will go directly to the person sharing the post on Twitter as long as they are registered with @poshtoken. Sign up at https://hiveposh.com.

Really looking forward to it. Damn I am so lazy to use twitter, but that could motivate me haha

It may take a while to get going but you got something to look forward to now. ^^

That's true!

This is a great initiative and good for spreading the word outside the Hive community, keep it up! !PIZZA

Yes I agree with what you said, a fair airdrop is this way, delegate HP and get daily prizes including $posh, but unfortunately I don't have much HP and maybe in the future I will participate in this #posh program.
Thank you for what programs you do here, and it's all invaluable to the people who contribute to the platform and community. :)

I'm all in for great projects organized by the people behind OCD or posh! Unfortunately, when I tried to delegate some HP, I got this error. I'll try again via computer, hopefully it works then!

Hmm that's weird, maybe your voting power was too low and you were trying to delegate too much of your HP to it?

I have no idea. This is still not working. I tried even with less HP...


I'm buying some #posh tokens.
Merry Christmas!

Make sure you've read all the posts about POSH in the links above, there's no real usecase for it yet so buy at your own risk.

Thank you!
No worries, I know that.

Extraordinary ! It's time for posh to bring a cup of coffee.

PIZZA! PIZZA!

Nice project n keep d good work

I have a doubt I need to delegate hive or my posh tokens?

Hi! You will need to delegate hive, in order to receive posh tokens 😊
You can check above a more detailed response by acidyo

Saludos es interesante el que una publicación ya pasada tenga la oportunidad de generar algo de ganancia nuevamente para su autor.

Happy Christmas Tinny POsH TOKEN and its a good information Ty

very cool!

I am supporting too! Great project! :)

This is a great idea. I feel a link to delegate attached to the post would have added an easiness to newbies or 'oldbies' lol, who've forgotten thier way around delegating.
