Let's fix SBD without breaking the Trending page

Last month, I gave a performance boost to @sbdpotato by automating the conversions and market buys, accelerating the speed at which SBD is converted. You can see how much is currently being converted (2,525 SBD) and how much we've converted so far (15,851 SBD) using our API.

Trending page issue

Several major stakeholders agree that fixing the SBD peg is an important task and we received a lot of support, creating an unforeseen problem, @sbdpotato invaded the trending page. To fix this, I ve automated the @sbdpotato posts to be capped at 25$ (this parameter can be tuned) and to post 4 times a day (can be tuned as well). Each post will have 4 comments for additional voting and all beneficiary rewards will be set to @likwid in order to get liquidity fast and start converting immediately.

We will adjust the post cap to make sure @sbdpotato doesn't make it to the top of trending again.

The opensource repo for this work can be found here. Shoutout to @jga that made me realize I left a private key of my testing account in there.

EDIT : Here s the first automated post.

Let's fix SBD, and the trending page then ;)

    Can we not just have whales converting SBD to Steem without the posts? Or persuade other users to do it? I saw something about allocating rewards to the project on proper posts. Anything to get a better ratio of good content on Steem.

    It still seems a small chance of getting SBD back up to $1 for now. It needs a real reason for people to buy it.

    Hi @stoodkev, I've listed a few steemmonsters cards for a humongously wrong price. @steemplus-pay bought it. I've heard it's an autoburner. Do you think we could undo that? It hits me for too much... If you decide you can send me the 60k dec back, you can keep 4k dec for being an awesome guy, sending me back only 52k.
