First of all, this post is dedicated to @crypto.piotr and @futuremind as both of them asked me regarding buying in. Since in Malaysia have no crypto exchange, it's quite hard to decide how can we buy in at this stage other than peer to peer exchange.
Fear not where now we have an alternative way in buying in. #esteemapp offer users to buy in via credit card as soon as one has bind their credit card with Google Play, and user can purchase #estm points via credit card and will be able to use these points in exchange with upvotes, and ultimately convert to #steem. Let's get to some calculations.
As at current market price, the highest exchange value should be 50k estm for RM404.99.
According to Bloomberg, current price for USDMYR is 4.185. 404.99/4.185 = $96.77 will be our initial investment.
According to current vote value, 2000estm would worth $4.154. For 50k, we can do 25 times. Let's assume the costing stays unchanged, it will be 25 x 4.154 = $103.85. Cost of investment $96.77, take back $103.85. I don't dare to say it's a profit, it could be extra charges on the credit card payment, or the bank does not follow Bloomberg pricing.
There you have it. From what I see, it's definitely worth it. Provided each vote has to be above $4(for 20 steem worth), otherwise the new #hf21 curation curve will eat up a huge portion of the author reward, which I'm currently suffering. See a $2.00 upvote came in, but the post reward shows only $1.60.
