For @Kus-knee (I saw you asked me).
I don't have enough upload speed here to upload a vlog so it will have to be by text.
I was talking to Ezzy yesterday and we talked for about 2-3 hours about blockchain and STEEM and everything that is going on.
I still love talking about it. I basicly had to stop because Bianca asked me too :)
But I guess there is a real need for people to keep hearing that everything is alright with blockchain and Steem in particular.
But it's something I don't understand anymore because for me it's 100% clear that things are going great regarding Steem.
I believe the growth of Steem can no longer be stopped (unless the chain breaks for Reason X).
There are now so many project utilising the Steem blockchain in their apps, frontends and communities that it's clear that it's already the most easy integratable blockchain out there.
Projects like Dtube, Dlive, Steepshot, busy.org and Dsound (and many more) show me this every single day and every day more projects are announced wanting to get in.
A particular favourite project of mine is STEEM MONSTERS (not announced, already fully working).
These guys have shown that it's possible to build an application on top of the Steem blockchain utilising the chain to link ownership of digital assets (in this case cards) to users and more impressively have made an application that doesn't rely on STEEMPOWER or upvotes to be profitable.
This last part is key because it shows that anyone with the right idea and knowledge can build a successful application on here without investing in a ton of STEEMPOWER.
There are chances for succes here for everyone and people are taking them.
It also shows that anyone that has earned STEEM on this blockchain so far through blogging has gotten this STEEM extremely easy compared to what these projects now have to do for it.
It therefor explains why earning STEEM on a individual level is getting harder and harder (I have been saying this for 18 months and it's 100% true).
So far I have seen this all coming and have been preparing for it as best I could by keeping every single STEEM I earned and growing my account. (It's the only way to keep mining STEEM at an equal rate).
Even today I'm still buying STEEM and earning STEEM while I still can.
I think selling any STEEM at this stage in the game is an enormous mistake. If you didn't sell for $7 in Jan 2018 then selling for $1 with everything that's been build since then and what has been annouced makes no sense.
Selling a 1000 STEEM for $1000 will most likely not change your life (definitely not where I live) but a 1000 STEEM has the potential to definitely change your life if you make it work for you today.
Ever since the release date of the SMT's (March 2019) and the new HF20 (sep 25th 2018) it's 100% clear where this blockchain is going.
STEEM will be the most important token on this Blockchain because of the RC system (read: @steemitblog).
SMT's will empower all the projects on the blockchain to create their own token and add their own value to it (Being a self employed person for most of my life I know how important this feeling is. Their is nothing better than adding value to yourself (SMT) instead of adding value to a company (STEEM), ps. not a 100% accurate comparison but I hope I explained the sentiment).
Also SMT's will be the new way to reward content creators. (STEEM as a reward token is currently no longer sufficient).
HF20 will allow easy on boarding of users and this is key.
In a day and age where nobody has time a two week signup process is extremely outdated.
HF20 will allow Projects (STEEMPOWER holders) to onboard their own users and with a lot of projects already running on the blockchain I expect an influx of new users because we don't have to rely on STEEM inc to verify everyone.
And there you have it.
The roadmap for Steem has never been more clear than it is today.
All you have to do is have fun and watch it all unfold over the next 6-12 months.
I think it will be a sight to behold.
