Interesting Aspects of Scorum
There are some parts of Scorum that every new user should take note of and understand the function.
On logging in, you will see three signs
S sign(liquid SCR) – This is the platform native token, which is known as SCR. This SCR can be converted to other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Eos, and can also be converted to local cash (fiat). This SCR can be withdrawn at any time.
P sign(Scorum Power) – This is Scorum power. This is the vested amount of SCR. In Layman’s English, it means the amount of SCR that is locked up. I know you are wondering why it is locked up.
You see, when you publish a post on Scorum, and people vote it i.e., upvote it. The value of their upvote depends on the amount SCR vested. If I have 10,000 SCR vested, my upvote value will be different from someone that has 100 SCR vested. This now means that if you want to have more influence on Scorum, you need to lock up more SCR to have more upvote value.
This vested SCR can be powered down in 52 weeks, which will turn it to liquid SCR that can be sold.
Lightning sign(Voting Power) – The lightning sign is the voting power, and it is a way to curb abuse on the platform. Once you give a post full upvote, your 100% voting power reduces to 95%, and it will take 5 hours for it to regenerate back to 100%. Your upvote value at 100% is not the same at 95% vice versa.
Now that you know these 3 crucial aspects of Scorum. You can proceed to write your first post. You can make it an introduction post or jump into any quality sports post.
Writing your first post.
This is straight forward as Scorum uses a kind of Medium post editor. You write the title then the body of the post. You can highlight any part of the body for a pop-up that shows editing tools such as Bold, heading, list, images, videos, and so on.
Plagiarism is not allowed, and there is an automated plagiarism checker that checks your post before publishing.
Your post reward is paid out after seven days, and it’s paid out in the form of Scorum power. This means you have to power down to convert to liquid SCR before you can sell.
One more thing is you don’t have to wait till seven days elapses before you write another post. You can continue writing every day without limit.
Converting your SCR to fiat
SCR is currently traded on hotbit, and you can convert it to Ethereum there and sell it to anyone near you. SCR is presently $0.004437 per one, meaning 1,000 SCR is around $4.4. This might look daunting at first, but it’s achievable within 2 to 3 quality posts.
