Blockdeals is POWERING DOWN - Please revoke ACTIVE delegations
Firstly on behalf of the entire Block Deals Team, I want to thank the supporters of this project from it's inception. But unfortunately we weren't able to get this Project over the line as we had hoped.
Perhaps it was a naivety on our part, but we've seen the delegation landscape change over the last few months and although we showed a steady development pace in the early stages, it was the lack of delegations, that made us hesitate and question our project goals.
Although, I suspect if we were around at a time before the bots, the delegations would have been much easier to come by. Or maybe not.
Sadly, now the lure of making a small income from Bid Bot delegations is a much bigger incentive than support developing projects on the STEEM Blockchain.
And it's not just us, as we see this with other Steem projects too. You certainly don't need to look too far to realise the only STEEM applications flourishing are the ones with a sizeable delegation to back up their communities.
This could be a problem in the future for the STEEM Blockchain if it wants to grow outside of it's bubble.
You can use the following link to remove any active delegations.
And on a personal note, I'm looking to continue with the deals idea perhaps in another form.
Although I'm not a developer of code but rather a developer of ideas, so I'll turn towards the open source community for a suitable platform I can use as a base. So keep an eye out for me.
Again from the entire Block Deals Team, thanks for supporting us on this journey.
