How Long Should Do Curation Window On Hive Be?
Right now the curation window on Hive is 5 minutes. That means everyone that votes in the first 5 minutes gets more curation rewards than everyone that votes outside of the 5-minute window.
We know 5 minutes does not work, it has lead to the rise and takeover of rewards by auto voters. Manual voters earn up to 100% less than auto voters in the current system. I've earned as low as 6% being a manual curator while I've seen autos earn over 20%. This difference in rewards is what is throwing a wet blanket on curating in the Hive ecosystem.
The proposed change to the curation window is to expand it while keeping the rewards flat within the window (everyone earns the same % based on their stake) We know 5 minutes does not work because it is too quick. So the goal is to find the best balance possible for manual curators while diminishing the usefulness of autobots.
The proposed change is from 2-24 hours. I'm going to list a few different times that should satisfy most ranges.
To be clear this would not change the payout window, which is different from the voting window for increased curation rewards. Right now, the voting window is 5minutes for bonus curation rewards, with a 7 day payout. The changes proposed is to move that from 5 minutes to 2-24 hours, with a 7 day pay out.
