Since we have settled in nicely in Hive and got some data to work with we thought it would be worth it to give a little update about how Qurator handles delegations to the @qurator account. As you know we have gone full manual when it comes to upvoting posts, with the exceptions of some upvotes as prizes for competitions. We have been fortunate enough to get quite a bit of support from everyone here on Hive when it comes to delegations and we are sitting at around 340 000HP in total that we use to curate with. That is 30 000HP from the @qurator account and 310 000HP from delegations.
Rewards for Delegations
After we moved to Hive we decided to share 80% of all curation rewards to those who delegate to @qurator. Paying out your portion equal to your delegation. We wanted to wait and gather some data so we can see what the typical payout looks like. These payouts go out daily and by looking at data from 30 days we can see that the payouts are averaged at 0.322 HIVE per 1000HP delegated. These payouts go out daily and they do differ from day to day as you can see in the little chart below.
Average 0.322 HIVE per day for every 1000HP delegated
Current Curation Results
Our little team of curators is always trying to upvote the good quality, original, and undervalued posts. That not only help us to optimize our curation, but also help to motivate those that might not be getting the attention they deserve, hopefully contributing this way to increase Hive's user retention rate. A win-win situation. On average we normally get more than 100HP curation per day. We normally stay above 80% voting power when voting and ensure the upvotes are split among many authors. As a rule, we will never upvote the same author more than twice a week, thus ensuring we share the Qurator upvotes with as many authors as possible.
Below is the curation for the last few days:
The big dip in the middle was when we moved over to Hive and as you can see the manual curation is doing much better than the automated system.
As for the results and return you can see the curation that still needs to come in this week. (note that this is not always 100% accurate) This method works way better than the automation that we use on Steemit. Thus the much better curation.
With all that being said I hope this will give everyone and idea of how curation and delegations are handled and the results that back them. Be it for investment or project support, know that your delegation will give you a solid return as well as ensure curation to authors that definitely deserve it.
Thank you to everyone who has delegated to @qurator and we hope to keep on rewarding you with better payouts and better curation numbers!
