After participating of blogging for many years and landing on steem a year ago, I’ve often considered the possibility of a strong competitor appearing from left field. If I’m to be honest, the possibility of something taking over, of STEEM the token itself failing is not too worrying, at least not in the big scope of things.
Now, I do expect that any project that would give this a go, that would attempt to slay the dragon sort of speak, would have quite a quest in front of them. After all, the tech is important no doubt, but more importantly being able to convince communities and their leaders to make the shift is nothing that has been perfected as some sort of formula.
This is precisely why most crypto projects fail. Unfortunately, its not about talent per say, it’s not even about polished intelectual power. It has a lot more to do with happenstance and social quirks. Hence why I believe that slaying the behemoth is quite difficult.
I’m going to play around a bit on this platform, see what it has to offer, and how it attempts to tackle some of the distribution issues that most cryptos suffer from. So far, it feels like I’m interacting with a wordpress type website, but that is actually a good thing. However, Im quite confused as to how to search for quality content or how “quality” itself gets determined.
Are there likes? Upvotes? Downvotes? Shares? Trending Pages? It’s quite fun to feel like a newbie all over again.
