Content-like Investing on YOURS [Revenue curves; YOURS success paradox; and, content-like investment bots]
Previous upvoters gain BCC when someone upvotes a post. YOURS is the first upvoter of every post and so gets paid for every other upvote. You can see YOURS' performance over the first few dozen upvotes in the top blue line in the image below.
As a common YOURS user, the best position you can be in for investing in content-likes is to be the first voter after YOURS. You can see the revenue curves in the above image for the first seventeen voters after YOURS (the seventeenth voter will gross over 0.1¢ once a content has been voted to $5 [break-even, less BCC transaction fee(s)]).
The more upvoted a piece of content, the more profitable it can be to have been a prior upvoter (and the later you vote, the less profitable your vote can be). If YOURS content receives significant upvotes, it can be highly profitable to be one of the first upvoters (200%+ ROI). Competition to be one of the first voters will likely arise; where just-too-slow investors pay-off the faster investors. If the content actually turns out to be popular, the early investors will still make a positive return. The success paradox is that increasing up-votes of YOURS content will attract investment bots who try to gain from liking content early.
Investment bots could be developed with multiple strategies. Simply upvoting every post could be profitable. More advanced models could be created to take into account who posted the content and other metadata. More synthetic models could attempt to take into account the content itself, when determining whether it might be profitable to upvote a content.
There's much more to talk about in this space. If there is interest I can expand on it. I'm working on a basic analysis program for new content on YOURS and if I finish, I will be releasing the results soon.
