Another Hard Fork coming!!!!

I have just read apparently all the information I get about the, let me named as “the Sudden creation of another HARDFORK for Steem” in order to implement by one side the so called “STEEM PROPOSAL SYSTEM (SPS)” on which I don’t have anything against and, by the other side, an “Economic Improvement Proposal (EIP) ” on which I have serious doubts about its efficiency as a solution.

I do not want to explain here what all of these changes would mean, instead I am going to point you to the post of @timcliff which, in my opinion is sufficiently clarifying (…or not)…
Please, read this post.

They are trying to fix “the problem” of the steem blockchain by implementing a 50%/50% rewards for content creators and curators respectively as IMO major change.
Very difficult to forecast the result of the change… looks like in principle, content creator would lost part of their rewards in order to encourage curators find good content to upvote for…
It is still to be demonstrated that this change or the change of moving from a linear rewards curve to a convergent linear rewards curve will motivate ORCAS and WHALES to change their upvoting behavior or stop delegating SP to bidbots or the like…
But this post is more related with the fact that STEEM has a problem of MARKETING as well. We are sitting at the 61th position of the TMC…


Would you think this sudden HF will help to get more investors on STEEM?


If you were an investor looking for altcoins to buy right now, which one you would choose?

The more visible, the best marketed, the one with less internal problems or, the one that is in permanent economical change since the beginning and with an uncertain HARDFORK result coming?

I’m not against improvements if they are so…but I really think the exposed proposals are drastic changes, which can complicate even more the things to the already damaged STEEM price.

@timcliff also listed as a part of the problems that:

Little to no marketing is being done.

…and there is nothing proposed yet neither a plan to solve that point and I don’t see how HF21 will fix it in short to medium term…

For me it is clear that before doing anything at the level of changing the CODE we should focus on the MARKETING aspect more seriously and, to tell you the thruth, I do not understand why the bloody SMT project is not even mention nowadays…at least now that seems that the costs will be reduced finally…

Perhaps we have to wait for the next, not the current one, Bull cycle in order to finally see someone reading how promising is the Steem blockchain…

24 days already since this post…

I am still amaze about the ingenuity of that post … they launched a shy initiative to promote steemit out of the steem blockchain borders…and the worst of everything is that 24 days have gone already and I did not manage to see anything about on twitter…

In the meantime, the market is reversing, the competitors are working hard and willing to launch a Steemit killer…and still there are people here who are debating about converging curation rewards and, 50/50% splits, downvote pools and the like…

Maybe they only think we are a gang of crazy guys trying to attract people to a useless place…

We must be crazy…

Is this the only thing you can do as a Marketing Campaign @steemit ?

Sorry guys but I am worried…

…and don’t tell me that STEEMIT is Not STEEM!

of course we are STEEM! and perhaps 5000 active steemians individuals filling twitter with seven77 push-ups may attract someone here or, maybe not because, seriously, If I would be a newbie in crypto I think I would not understand anything of what’s going on with Steem and what is trying to sell…

We need a straight message, something like “COME, BLOG and EARN CRYPTO!”

Catch it?

@toofasteddie

Hello, is there anybody out there?

Thanks to BITCOIN, STEEM is recovering some places at the Total Coin Market Cap!

That’s great!

We are placed solidly at the 59th position, improved 2 places since a couple of days ago!!!

…and all this done without no advertisement, no marketing plan, neither update at Twitter nor even at the Blockfolio Signal… NOTHING!!!!

Sorry, yes, only with the own effort of ourselves, steemians, doing the impossible to promote the use of STEEM across all the borders of Twitter, Facebook etc…

  • 777 Pushups
  • Dtube Forum
  • STEEM Meetings sporadically arranged anytime
  • #10kminnows

Where is the strategic Marketing Campaign!!!

What the heck means not being anymore at BETA???? Nothing changed besides technicalities!!!

MIRA would be a revolution only if we find USERS outside there!!!!

Forget about the SMT’s !!!! We NEED BUYERS!!! We NEED USERS!!!!

My Blockfolio signal keeps blinking about any other Crypto but STEEM.

TRYBE is rising! EOS is accelerating and we have competitors at the doors…

Holy SHIT! Steemit INC DO SOMETHING!!!!


SELL THE PRODUCT!!!! MECAGUENDIOS!

Seems that finally “marketing” starts from today

Yes, seems that finally the people from Steemit Inc. have decided to do something, somehow diffident for the moment but definitely dedicated to promote Steemit beyond the borders of Steemit itself…

They have created a new account called @steem.marketing from which they want to promote the Social Web Steemit at Twitter.

Many people are right know commenting in the announcing post, the majority of them are supporting the new initiative, some others ironically complaining about while also in favor, because, of course, no one can be against it…

To tell you the truth, I am expecting even more efforts on the Marketing side from Steemit. Promoting Steemit and more lately Steem as well have been done for many long term steemians till now while Steemit contributions has been almost zero at Twitter.

Steemians as @nathanmars , @stephenkendal , @theycallmedan they are really working hardly already at twitter , spreading the Goodness of the steem blockchain anytime and in every place.

Now, they want to start from the “basics”…that’s fine but, come on! WE HAVE TO REACH THE WORLD HERE!!!!

Could you tell us what will be the name of the Twitter account to follow in order Re-Tweet your Marketing Tweets?

I hope this is only the beginning of a major Marketing Plan so, please @steem.marketing team, do nice ads, share your twitter account, call the community for spreading your message and it could be a good start!
