Are we Steemit INC-dependents?

More than three years have passed already since that one investor called Ned Scott and the BitShares creator Dan Larimer, founded the Steemit platform, built on top of the Steem blockchain.

Since then, we have seeing the deployment of many HardForks developed by the Steemit team and supported by our witnesses, some of the HF were really necessary but some others just put us on the place we are now at the market in my opinion.

Also, for me it is clear that the permanent “drainage” of the “Ninjamined” Steem which is being transfer to the exchanges with the same frequency, is clearly “ballasting” our blockchain to the most unsuspected depths of the market in terms of price and capitalisation.

From being a total needed company in order to sustain the Steem blockchain and its development, Steemit INC has become a problem for us in order to recover from a very painful a long bear market and this situation does not look to get better in the mid-term since there is no plan, according to my knowledge, that would indicate a “release” of the selling pressure by the @steemit side.

Even if they have recognised lately that they have cut their infrastructure cost with MIRA and other technical improvements, and also they implement another source of incomes by the use of advertisements on site, they are not really planning to stop or at least “smooth” a little this constant drainage.

In my opinion, this behavior is also affecting the number of DApps being built on top of the Steem Blockchain…I remember 2 years ago when the trend page was full of new ideas and projects proposed from developers… how may we have now?

I think the best development lately has been the STEEM-ENGINE and TRIBES Token+Interface placed by @aggroed and other excellent, not only developers but also investors here. I really appreciate them.

In the meantime, STEEMIT has become the BIG SELLER of the blockchain and not the entity that everyone would expect in order to further develop and improve the project.

What is clear is that, under the point of view of the regular steemian, Steemit INC seems to provide more problems than solutions…

I know, yeah, more than two years being an active member of this blockchain has taught me that STEEM IS NOT STEEM…so, don’t tell me this anymore or… I will downvote you (LOL), of course I’m joking…

but, wait… Do you think we are still dependent on these people?

I mean, is there not enough good developers in the community? (ie. @holger80 , @yabapmatt @aggroed , @netuoso etc… )

Could these good developers take care of the Steem Blockchain Code or are we “hooked” forever by the STEEMIT INC team?

These are questions for you, my prefered witnesses:


Someone at Steem Inc should hire these guys…

I am not a big defensor of @drugwars, despite I am still playing the game from time to time, I have been very critic with some of the decisions they have done…

I think they did some bad movements leaving the STEEM blockchain but I understood why they did thought…

I have to recognise that they know how to build a business from almost zero…

They have a Business case, they have a goal and a Development Plan and they are implementing the necessary changes for the game to be more and more playable every week, no doubt about…

Even if they move out of our blockchain, they are still highly supportive with STEEM… and seems they are really focused in Crypto ADOPTION…

ACCESS for free with your FACEBOOK or GOOGLE account but BUY a STEEM ACCOUNT to obtain more benefits/advantage

The game will improve and also other projects of their portfolio will be launched… It is a question of time only…In the meantime they develop their own token at Obyte (FUTURE) and they reward with both, FUTURES and STEEM…ok, maybe to get rewarded with STEEM is more complicate now since you have to pass by their forum but, come on! They are doing something really focused on bringing investors, even if they are only gamers, to the STEEM blockchain!

We should all recognise the fact they are good developers doing great business…and that is an important point to learn by others…also at the STEEM Blockchain…

You can have the best product but that is irrelevant if you don’t know how to sell it.

By the way, thanks to @beiker that told me that now you can support @drugwars with BAT tokens using Brave… as I said, they are smart and they know how to make business…

I set up already my monthly contribution of BAT to them, you deserve it.


DRUGWARS: One step back and, surprisingly, 100 Steps Forward!

The last upgrade of Drugwars doesn’t look to provide so much improvements in terms of “playability”, even worst, they removed the option of “Share your battle at STEEMIT” thus, if you were doing it regularly, and so trying to get the good upvotes of the @drugwars account, seems that it is not anymore possible… I don’t care because, I thought since the beginning that these kind of non-editable posts without content were just increasing the level of spam at the steem blockchain… so, somehow and personally I am happy for that…but if you were building your Steem account based on this sort of income, this last point seems one step back

Looking at the Discord, seems that perhaps they are deviating the share of the Drugwars post from Steem to the TokenBB forum, and looks like it may be rewarded because, if you share your battle at the forum, it creates a comment on a general post at Steem with the title “Forum Drugwars” , and this comment MAY be upvoted… I did it myself, I share one battle at the forum and I selfvoted it. The battle appears as a comment at the steem blockchain, including the upvote 🙂

Besides this new thing which can be seen “counterproductive”, you know I have been very critic with Drugwars development strategy lately, this time I have to recognize they are demonstrating they have the things clearer than I was expecting in terms of Business Plan…

This last upgrade comes with one amazing option I will show you next:

Yes man, you can now create an account of @drugwars by log in with FACEBOOK or with your GOOGLE account, and this is the 100 Steps Forward I was referring at the Title…

These guys are really working hard towards crypto adoption, and more in particular towards STEEM adoption. This is a smart move from the team in order to attract gamers to STEEM, despite the game could be better of course.

This time I have to congratulate the team!!!

Well done FutureShock , I promise I will never criticize you again if you keep doing as you did this time 😉


Another great upgrade on Steemworld

Have you seen the last upgrade of Steemworld ?

Go there and check your curation rewards, you will see how efficient you are as a curator.

I find it tremendously useful, not for me in particular because I am trying to upvote content without expecting to get the maximum of curation rewards but I understand that this tool and the one developed by @holger80 ( Beempy ) are really good tools for passive investors willing to maximize their investment while upvoting.

Curation trails and their followers can get the most if the manager of the trail try to check those numbers as well.

This guy , @steemchiller is really a perfectionist! He seems to have plenty of plans for @steemworld which are really coming week after week and the best of all is that I have never had a problem or bug by using his app.

My congratulations to @steemchiller for this new upgrade.
