Monthly CHARY News: +++ handling with abusers +++ New Service +++ Stats for April +++

in Charity13 days ago

Hello friends charity, $CHARY and $HIVE, Hello guests,

this is my monthly newsletter about the CHARY project.

Our Problem With Abusers

The last months we have had the problem, that at least one person has seriously damaged the price and image of the $CHARY token.
CHARY doesn't work with just taking and not giving. This person posted daily faked posts und upvoted himself. He took out more then 60 % of the spend money.

I have learned how to technically blacklist abusers. One can do it, by opening the website of that person (, clicking on "interactions" and then "mute". (Thanks to @detlev for the hint!)
I opened with the "anobel" account, which is responsible for the bot that distributes the $CHARY token, the website of the abuser and muted him.

So our bad guy is not member of the game anymore. He still has some staked $CHARY, which he can unstake and sell, but this is meaningless for our market.

Future of CHARY

So this motivates to go on. We have now a tool to kick out abusers.
The price of chary has suffered last month, because I called not to buy $CHARY at the moment. This moment is over now. So:


By doing this, you support all other CHARY bloggers.

But I also send this warning to all users of #CHARY
If someone abuses the system, I will kick them out!!!

This brings us to our rules. You have to stick to them, when you use the chary-hashtag. I have added an additional rule:

Don't post content, that has nothing to do with charity

I see a lot of posts about sport or lunch or animals ...
This has nothing to do with helping people.
In the future I want to downvote more consequently these posts. (Btw. You can/should downvote or at least give a comment also.)

The Chary Rules

  • Don't upvote yourself in comments or other accounts from you!
  • Use the chary tag for charity content only!
  • Use the chary tag only once a day!
  • Don't post content, that has nothing to do with charity
    If you ignore the rules, you will get downvotes or kicked out of the CHARY system

A New Service Is Born

In the last weeks I worked on a monitoring system, based on Elastiksearch, Kibana and a Raspberry Pi. I am able to monitor now any arbitrary HIVE token. You can see examples here: $BEER, $POB and $LIST.
If you are interested into statistics of another token, please tell me in the comments. I can offer to publish them regularely (weekly, monthly). This service is (at the moment) a manually process, so I need some upvotes to stay motivated ;-)

What does it mean for $CHARY?
Now we have an additional figure, namely the price of CHARY. Also the look and feel has changed a little bit.
So, let's see it:

I have put them into logfiles and uploaded them to kibana, from which I took the screenshots.
If you find errors, please tell me!

Call for Action

What is CHARY?

$CHARY is a subtoken of the Hive system (like the beercoin). One can exchange it on the Hive-Engine.
When you use the hashtag "chary" and get upvoted by people that have staked $CHARY, you will get some $CHARY.
But you only will get upvotes, when you write about your charity project, where you give us a good proof of charity. This means, we need pictures, where we can see, that people in need are really helped by you.
So please don't abuse the hashtag!

The Chary system can be reached via Hive (i.e. or directly via

We see that you've staked significant amounts of chary at least. Although you cannot post anymore or upvote yourself to cheat the platform, please curate quality web content at (achimmerten's whitelist is posted regularly) to actually provide some help for the world. Maybe some good can come from your account. Also we're aware that you follow 180,000 people so we're most likely never going to allow you to shitpost again. So if you decide to unstake and dump we're prepared to handle that also ☑️ but we'd really like to see you get involved and help

!BEER You deserve this. Bravo!
