Now, if I was to have this hypothetical conversation my focus would probably not be too much on the dollar valuations. Meaning, that I would not be talking to the potential investor about lambos and mooning, none of that ridiculous jargon. In truth, I think that fun yet infantile vocabulary is one of the reasons why serious investment stays away from blockchain technology. Who wants to put money where the kids play?
Ok, that was mean, maybe just a little bit, but I'm trying to make a point. Instead what I would focus on if given the opportunity is the technology and the opportunity for growth. Meaning, that the systems that could be built on this blockchain, the potential solutions to problems that they may have, could be built here.
I'm sure you know about @oracle-d and their mission to bring investment, real investment to the platform. What I'm thinking about, is more or less along the lines of their focus. We want of course speculators, we want people giving our ecosystem liquidity, but we also want people using the system to solve their problems.
In that sense, maybe, just maybe, the way we approach pitching STEEM to an investor is by first recognizing the opportunity, what they need resolved and then thinking creatively how the STEEM blockchain could offer a solution. Now, this of course means that blockchain might not always be the answer and that is completely fine. But, if we can find a way that we could effectively make an investor's life easier, then we might be successful at the pitch.
I keep on thinking that harvesting "brain power" from this blockchain might be the most amazing resource. After all, there are so many intelligent people participating of STEEM is quite humbling. It's not a far fetched idea to imagine a publication house using STEEM to create content, for example. It's not hard for me to outsource many online jobs using STEEM as the currency because let's face it, the ability to reach globally makes the right incentives easier to achieve.
So as the title of this short Sunday posts says. Do you feel confident pitching STEEM? Do you have doubts? - before you answer let's discard some notions here. I'm not talking about inviting apple to come blog here, that makes no sense. I'm talking about coming up with a solution to their shortcomings, because all entrepreneurs, all companies could possibly benefit from blockchain technology granted the right development was implemented.
By the way, I'm putting this out there because I'm about to give this a go. Wish me luck...
