Namasthe. Today we would like to introduce a new initiative to curate Leo Finance posts. We are already running a manual curation service for the main Hive token. As most of you might be aware, we have a side chain for Hive, and Hive Engine is the name of that sidechain. We have a facility to create tokens on Hive Engine. Leo is one such token that is available on Hive Engine and it is the main token powering the user interface.

Starting today we are creating a new account called india-leo and we will start our manual curation activity from that account. People who are having Leo Power and would like to support this manual curation initiative can delegate their Leo Power to india-leo account. 100% of the Leo curation rewards earned by this account will be distributed to the delegators.


As we are starting the service only today, the rewards will start coming only after 7 days from today. Currently, we don't have a portal to check who and all have delegated. It is only possible to check this with the help of a script. We will try to post a weekly report on the delegation made and the rewards distributed.

Answering question asked in the previous post about giving 90% or 95% share instead of 100%

When we made the previous post, there were views expressed by some of the members of the community saying that it should be enough if we share 90% or 95% of the curation rewards and the rest can be kept by the community itself. There were also comments on the same in the previous post. It is a fair point and I agree that we have to do something like this for increasing the stake of the community. It is right that the community members also won't mind if we take a small share for the sake of the community. Tagging a few people who had these thoughts @cwow2, @codingdefined, and @alokkumar121.

But, I'm thinking that we can still think of other ways to increase the stake of the community. The main reason why we wanted to go for a 100% curation reward share was that the APR for delegators was very less. Especially when there are other places where people can delegate their Hive power and earn better rewards, people prefer going there instead of delegating to Indiaunited. Only some people respect the community initiatives and the efforts taken by the community and delegate their Hive Power to the community.

Now that we have increased the share to 100%, I'm thinking that it will attract many individuals and community members to delegate more Hive power to the community account.

In order to run the community and cover some costs, I'm making a few other plans. Below are the few things I have in my mind:

  • Weekly post sharing the information on Curation reward received and distributed to the delegators.
  • india-witness is the Hive Engine witness operated by the community. The rewards earned by the witness will be fully used to cover the server and maintenance costs.

We have a few more ideas but have to see how feasible it can be to grow the community.
