About Quello

Quello is a question and answer platform built exclusively on the Hive blockchain. Quello allows you to ask and answer questions and earn Hive.
Quello is one of the many websites (View Ecosystem) that are powered by the Hive blockchain. All of these websites read and write content to the Hive blockchain, which stores the content in an immutable blockchain ledger, and rewards users for their contributions with digital tokens called Hive.

Using the Hive blockchain to power Quello, this allows us to reward valuable content in the form of questions and answers directly from quello.io.

Every day, the Hive blockchain mints new Hive tokens and adds them to a community's "rewards pool". These tokens are then awarded to users for their contributions, based on the votes that their content receives. On Quello, you have the ability to earn Hive by asking and answering questions.
On Quello, there a multiple ways that you can earn. Every single question and answer that you post on quello is published to the Hive blockchain, this means that Hive users have the ability reward your content via upvotes. Each upvote you receive provides you with a percentage of the reward pool that will become available to you when your question or answer pays out. In addition, your can also earn rewards for commenting and voting on Quello, each time you vote on a question, answer or comment you'll receive a curation reward based on the time you voted and vote worth.

To help you write questions on Quello, we've put together what we think makes a great question.

  • A good question is interesting, before posting your question ask yourself if these simple questions: is it worth asking? Is it worth answering?
  • When looking to find insight into underlying reason or motivations we recommend stating you're question with "why"
  • When looking to find insight into fact or context we recommend stating you're question with "what, when, where, who"
  • Use "how" to uncover processes and flows.
  • To investigate opportunities start your question with "how might we"
  • Check that your question has been posted before asking question to make sure it hasn't already been answered.
  • Double check your spelling and grammar.
Blockchains like Hive and Bitcoin produce new tokens each time a block is produced. Unlike Bitcoin, where all of the new coins go to the block producers (called miners), the Hive blockchain allocates a majority of the new tokens to a reward fund called the "rewards pool". The rewards pool gives users tokens for participating in the platform based on the value they add.
On Quello, there a multiple ways that you can earn. Every single question and answer that you post on Quello is published to the Hive blockchain, this means that Hive users have the ability reward your content via upvotes. Each upvote you receive provides you with a percentage of the reward pool that will become available to you when your question or answer pays out. In addition, your can also earn rewards for commenting and voting on Quello, each time you vote on a question, answer or comment you'll receive a curation reward based on the time you voted and vote worth.
Most of the authors that you see earning high rewards are users that have spent a lot of time in the building followings, making connections with others on Hive.It is best to have realistic expectations, without focusing on rewards when you are first starting out.Work on building a following, making connections, asking great questions and providing valuable answers. Consistency will pay off in the long run.
Each upvote made on Quello helps tell the author that you like their question or answer, when a upvote is made, this also assigns a percentage of the Hive reward pool to a question or answer.
Just because you received a downvote does not mean that you did something wrong. The downvoting person may have just been voting to reallocate the rewards in a way that they felt was more beneficial to the other active posts in the platform. Often users will leave a comment explaining why they downvoted, but sometimes they might not. If they left a reason, it is up to you to determine if you did anything wrong, and if there is anything you want to change.
Quello takes a small beneficiary of 5% on all questions asked and answered using the platform. This beneficiary is used to help fund development and other costs associated to running the platform. Quello doesn't apply a beneficiary on comments.

Hive

Hive is a cryptocurrency based on the social media and content-focused Hive blockchain
The price of Hive is based on the supply and demand of the token, as determined by buyers and sellers on the exchanges. It is similar to how the price of a commodity like gold is determined.
On the Hive blockchain you can earn Hive in multiple ways. These include:

  1. Posting - By sharing your posts, you can earn upvotes from community members. Depending on the upvotes you receive, you may get a portion of the "rewards pool".
  2. Voting and curating - If you discover a post and upvote it before it becomes popular, you can earn a curation reward. The reward amount will depend on the amount of Steem Power you have.
  3. Vesting - Hive tokens that are powered up to Hive Power will earn a small amount of new tokens for holding.
Blockchains like Hive and Bitcoin produce new tokens each time a block is produced. Unlike Bitcoin, where all of the new coins go to the block producers (called miners), the Hive blockchain allocates a majority of the new tokens to a reward fund called the "rewards pool". The rewards pool gives users tokens for participating in the platform based on the value they add.
No. It is free to post, comment, and vote on content on Hive.
Every 100% vote you cast will use 2% of your remaining voting mana. Your voting mana will recharge by 20% each day. You can vote more than 10 times per day, but each vote will be worth less, and it will take longer to reach full voting mana again.

Each user also has a mana pool specifically for down votes. This pool is 25% of the upvote mana pool. Downvotes will consume this mana first before consuming regular mana. When voting, 1/50th of the remaining mana is used for a 100% vote. The same math is used for downvote mana but multiplied by 4 because the downvote mana pool is 25% the size of the normal mana pool. The maximum of these values is used. When both mana pools are at 100%, the values are the same. When downvote mana runs out normal mana is used in the same manner as the current behavior.
Voting mana is like an "energy bar" in a computer game that goes down a little bit every time you vote. You start out with 100% voting mana. Every time you vote, you will use a small amount of your voting mana.

As you use more of your voting mana, your votes will carry less influence. A vote with 50% voting mana left will be worth 1/2 as much as a vote cast with 100% voting mana. Not to worry, the network recharges your voting mana by 20% every day.
