RE: Connecting The Dots: Resource Credits Will Make STEEM A Lot More Valuable
This combined with Ned’s post.
We could see RCs (Mana) sold on the internal exchange.
It is very imaginable that we will see a RC rental market come SMTs, or earlier even.
This would, much like EOS’s proposition by Dan some weeks ago, allow SMTs to enter the market without needing to invest in having SP.
The difference with leasing SP would be that SMTs can/could operate without also needing to reward much in vests and RC rental would thus be cheaper than leasing delegation. The owner of the RC would, at the same time, continue to actively manage their actual upvote value and reward, all while earning from renting RC out.
That separation of resources is a massive WIN for everyone involved. And for the platform too.
