Well certainly if the big whales go out of their way to make sybil accounts just so they can upvote for it, at least it is more work for them to do. And since they already have a lot of SP, is it really worth for them to do this?

What percentage of the whales do you estimate would make sybil accounts just so they can upvote for themselves? Even if we cant prevent it, we can at least stigmatize it

It's not even whales who would benefit from Sybil. Anyone could attack the platform that way.

I still dont understand how using a subtractive effective SP makes it rate limiting...
It only reduces the power for upvoting someone with a lot of SP, even if the subtractive factor is sqrt(SP author) it biases upvoting to the smaller SP authors.
There can be a million sybil accounts, but what does that gain? The whales have to vote for them and if a whale is voting for newbie accounts that he controls, this will be noticed wouldnt it? especially if the content is weak. So then he needs to hire writers to create useful content, in which case it creates useful content
Maybe I wasnt clear that this was just to reduce upvote power and not to increase it, so whatever attack you say it has, the existing system can be attacked the same way with more power

Id expect most of the current whales got to be whales by mining, and my (admittedly poor) understanding is that you need many miners to be able to run mining all the time, because your miners can't mine while theyre in line to have their pow accepted by a witness.

Even then we would be more  "attractive" to the outside world when they see that power is not centralized to a couple of whales but spread to more accounts (I mean at least marketing wise it would be better)

this graph is not yet so much encouraging... I hope the numbers will change and give as a more decentralized feeling in the near future...

Ideally each category would have approx the same stake. It seems my proposal is not liked by a couple of whales who have downvoted this post :(

I am sure that the percentages will equalize. Maybe the .14% will become the 1%. We can only pray.
