Vlog 453: Splinterlands: Untamed coming out tomorrow + The importance of second revenue streams to sustain the Steem blockchain.
Splinterlands: Untamed is being released tomorrow.
As an investor in the game, I am looking forward to how the new cards will affect the Alpha and Beta card prices and also the price of DEC.
The other part of the vlog is about what would happen if the STEEM price went to 1 cent and why I think that wouldn't matter for the sustainability of the blockchain if there are enough projects here generating revenue from other sources.
In other words, if there are enough projects here utilizing Steem in their business model and generating revenue because of it there should be enough incentive to pay for the infrastructure (full node/witness) and keep it going even though that would only generate 1 cent STEEM tokens for them.
It will just become a cost on the balance that can be offset by the revenue a project makes.
Steemit.com is one of these projects I see being able to do this once communities are out. I'm hoping communities will increase engagement. Make a lot of people have more fun and want to be here and that would lead to more eyes on the site that should lead to more advertisement revenue.
And they sure have enough SP to fill a big pool of RC credits to onboard plenty of users that can start posting here without having to buy STEEM first.
It's a fun thought experiment and I like how more and more projects are searching for second revenue streams, stepping away from the reward pool as the only revenue source.
And don't worry I don't think STEEM price will go to 1 cent for real.
Enjoy the vlog.
