So much FUD in this post, I almost don't even believe it!
there is very little utility in the design of any app on this blockchain, so why would there be any users? I liked your analogy of comparing steem to reddit with only one subreddit.
This makes no sense and the analogy is even worse. "There is very little utility in the design of any app on this blockchain", really? Oh, so I guess @steemmonsters doesn't allow me to play. I guess @dpoll doesn't allow me to ask questions and vote on others. LITERALLY STEEM ITSELF IS BASED ON ACTUAL UTILITY OF BLOGGING!
I spent the better part of two years building close to 1000 followers on steem. Even so, i bet I won't get more than 5 views on this post.
Who cares about your following? That's irrelevant. Write good articles, and people will come back to read more. I've come across literally dozens of bloggers on here in my short amount of time who regularly get 20+ returning readers & comments, engaging on each post. Sorry to say, but if you're not getting the numbers you expect, perhaps you should take a look at your content. Or, at the very least, try to promote yourself better. Engage with others, build contacts and friends. Duh.
With no users, developers outside of crypto will never use this clunky system.
Clunky system, as if! Nothing about steem is more or less clunky than literally any other blockchain!
- Simple usernames doubling as wallet addresses without the need of 20 character long numbers & symbols.
- Fast transaction times
- FREE TRANSACTIONS!!
If you think steem is clunky, you need to explore the other shit out there!
Speaking of which:
Steem is bad for developers
Developers within the crypto ecosystem have better choices of blockchains.
"Plain and simple there are better options", really? Ok then, enlighten me. Where are these "better options"? I'd love to see them.
Tron? Fully of scammy shitty gambling crap. EOS? If you think steem is "clunky" or "confusing", good luck getting users to understand the concept of renting CPU, RAM, Bandwidth. Fuck that shit. Oh, and have fun mass-adopting people onto a blockchain where usernames HAVE TO BE a certain character length. What complete retard came up with that fucking idea? I want my name to be as long or as short as I want, why are you forcing me to use your defined character length? Fucktards.
Oh, how about ETH? Right, good old Eth? Sure, go ahead and build one semi-popular dapp on eth and watch the whole network shit itself like what happened to crypto-kitties. You have to fuddle around with bullshit complex third party solutions in order to not tank the network.
Steem has problems. Everything in the world has problems. We don't search for problem-free platforms, that's impossible to find. We search for problem-few platforms, and STEEM has the fewest and most manageable problems out there! Seriously, honest request: TELL ME ABOUT A BETTER PLATFORM?
Where is this magical better platform you speak of?
