I was asked recently to take a look at how much had been given to @steem.dao via beneficiaries. Who is donating? Should we donate?
Arkanoid - block removal classic material
Although I've offered a small beneficiary to @steem.dao on a couple of posts since the recent hardfork/s, I had little idea if this was something few/many others were doing.
As it turns out, I would say that setting @steem.dao as a beneficiary is not too high on the list of many accounts as yet.
At the time of writing, a total of 475.863 SBD has gone to @steem.dao in beneficiaries, and 34 accounts have used the feature over a total of 56 Comments.
That doesn't seem like very much, but it is OK for starters?
Besides, the @steem.dao account collects around 70 SBD an hour through inflation at present.
And Steemit Inc. have recently donated 200,000 STEEM which will total 33675 SBD.
To me, it looks like the fund is building up quite well, even without many accounts offering a share from their content. Earlier today when I looked at the list on steempeak there were two proposals ahead of @gtg's Return Proposal, but now there are three, costing in total around 270 SBD a day.
24 hours worth of payments at 70 SBD is 1680 SBD coming via inflation and so, unless I'm missing something, the pot is growing by 1400 SBD a day and currently stands at $85,500. I guess that in the future there are likely to be some much larger projects seeking funding, and so the fund growing quickly right now is likely a good thing.
What's the feeling though - should more people set a little aside for @steem.dao, or do content creators feel the recent cut in rewards for this funding as enough of an 'indirect contribution' for now?
Enjoy the weekend,
Felt obliged to offer a small one :P
