What's the best way to store calculated data in a database?

What's the cleanest way of going about this? How often should the data in the database be recalculated / at which events should the data be recalculated.https://omegle.onl/

I'm currently trying to model upvotes in posts. I don't know if it's faster if I just sum the vote integers (0, 1, or -1) every single time a post is loaded, or if I just store the initial upvote count and just increment and decrement it, and only calculate the sum every once in a while

    If the table where you store the votes gets a new row each time a vote is made, consider a Live Aggregate Projection that contains SUM(vote) GROUP BY (<whatever_makes_sense>). This way, you don't need to store the sum, but can get it from a pre-aggregated data store every time you SELECT SUM(vote) FROM ... .
