New Moons Distribution (Round 23 Proposal)

Moons are r/CryptoCurrency’s version of Community Points. [Community Points]( are a way for users to be rewarded for their contributions to the subreddit, and they can be used on premium features in the community.

Moons are distributed every 4 weeks based on contributions people make to r/CryptoCurrency. For every distribution, Reddit publishes karma data as a default measure of contribution. The community can review the data and optionally propose an alternative distribution, if they wish.

This distribution is based on karma earned from 2022-01-19 to 2022-02-15. [Here is the data.](

To propose an alternative distribution:

* You can create a CSV with alternative contribution scores or propose changes to the algorithm used to calculate them from karma (as long as the changes can be implemented easily).
* The amount of Moons distributed to a user will be proportional to their contribution score. Contribution scores cannot be negative.
* Make a poll to have the community vote on your proposal. Include an accurate description of the changes you are proposing.
* In order to pass, the winning option in the poll must meet the decision threshold (minimum number of Moons in support). If it is in favor of the change, it becomes the official contribution measurement (unless there is evidence of abuse in the vote, such as bribery). Algorithm changes will carry forward to future distributions.
* In case of multiple competing polls passing, the one with the most Moons cast in favor will be the official one.
* If no alternative passes, the data provided here will become official.

The contribution scores for this round will be finalized on 2022-02-23. Any poll proposing an alternative needs to be completed by then.

After the scores are finalized, Reddit will sign the data and publish the final, official data. After that, people with a registered Vault will receive Moons directly into their Vault. Other users will receive their Moons when they create and register a Vault.

  1. Moon to karma ratio is *at least* 0.292

    I say at least because last round the admins announced they had fixed the bug preventing the redistribution of half the Moons burned from membership purchases.
    (They found it after some persuasion from myself and u/nanooverbtc. You’re all welcome btw. Admins are sending us t-shirts to say thanks lol)

    The amount added to the Moon total isn’t calculated until the distribution next week so I cant figure the ratio out for sure until then. I’ve had a crack at estimating it though and it looks like roughly 30k extra Moons, so could increase the ratio by 0.007

    This is ~~guesstimated~~ calculated from the balance change of the burn address over the last 3 weeks, so doesn’t take into account users who paid directly with Moons or the first few days of the round before they reduced the cost to 100 from 1000 Moons.

    So yeah, idk, it probably shouldn’t be lower than 0.292 tho.

    ^(This is not financial advice)

  2. Looks like a ratio of 0.292. Lower traffic in the sub, especially in the last few weeks of the month, really drove this up. Hope everyone is happy with their distribution!

  3. Let’s fucking gooo! My fourth distribution now I believe. Open up your vaults, people, and I hope you’ve all learned a thing or two this month!
