Since its inception a little over a month ago, the @sbdpotato project has received heartwarming support from the community, stakeholders and witnesses. The most recent support was provided by witness @stoodkev who donated his development time to the project to make it more efficient through automation.
The code repository can be seen on this Github link.
A cron job is set to run every 10 minutes on a Heroku free personal instance operated by @thecryptodrive and if there is STEEM present in the account the bot will sell it on the internal market for SBD at a max rate of 300 STEEM per cron interval, this rate can be adjusted in Config Vars.
Thereafter all available SBD is placed into conversion automatically.
Now automated at 10-minute intervals, feel free to follow the conversion progress via the links below:
TLDR, you vote for @sbdpotato's daily posts and the rewards @sbdpotato earns will be used to purchase SBD on the internal market, convert it to STEEM (reducing the SBD supply) and then the converted STEEM will be used in a circular fashion to purchase more SBD - Rinse Repeat! That's basically it!
Today's SBD Price (Spot): 0.614 USD
Current Debt Ratio: 13.96%
Target Debt Ratio: 9.90%
Well firstly by voting this post you will be helping fix SBD to get it pegged to 1 USD again as it was meant to, this could also help bring the STEEM price up with it. There is a theory that the two are circular, a strong SBD gives support to healthier STEEM prices, perhaps due to positive sentiment in the network.
In addition to doing your part to improve the economy of the Steem network, you will also earn SP curation rewards from voting the post that hopefully get decent traction.
You can set the @sbdpotato account on autovote using a service like beta.steemvoter, by creating a stream to autovote the @sbdpotato account at around 4 or 5 minutes as per the screenshot below. There are also other autovoter services you can use if you prefer.

As custodian of this project I, @thecryptodrive, will not derive any monetary value therefrom and undertake this under my duty as Steem consensus witness and ambassador.
I hope the Steem community will embrace this idea of supporting the SBD peg by voting the @sbdpotato posts regularly, alone we are powerless, together we can bring about change.
