As many of you guys already know, good management plus innovation and design thinking strategy are principles that help an organization´s viability in the short and long run. In my former blog post, I indicated : Why Steemit should kick the Ass of Major exchanges / Trading Platform like Poloniex and Start its Own see here . This is because of issues we steemians constantly have with trading platform like Poloniex with regard to Steem and SBD which was raise by some members : @barrydutton , @teamsteem , @fyrstikken and @krnel (to mention just few) and subsequent advice was given.
In light of this aforementioned issue and the need to add revenue stream to steem ecosystem, I am convinced that management of steem should think of ways to incorporate steem debit card -which will help members easily spend their steem or steem dollars without going to a third party. If done prudently, this will certainly move the playing field to our advantage and subsequently, add a solid revenue stream to steem ecosystem. Some great Steemians , : @infovore , @ausbitbank , @donkeypong , @gtg, @timcliff , @blueorgy and @stephenkendal (to mention just few) have written extensively on the power of steem ecosystem and its growing member base and the need to even innovate further and tap into the greatness of steem ecosystem. This should not be ignored, rather the debate should begin.
Why steem debit card will be great for all
- Members being able to access their money worldwide
- Fast and less stress because no need to login to the internet to access funds
- Best security due to steem solid blockchain technology
- There are many content creatures in steem ecosystem so it makes perfect sense
- The stability of SBD which moves in tandem with USD makes it an awesome fit
- Ability to use Steem debit card to buy steem directly from the internal market , thus leading to faster and cheaper transaction
I do understand that steem is still on its infancy (still on beta) and all these ideas might sound like a big noise. Moreover, some debit card providers ( Payza , Bitwala ) have steem in their debit card service- however just like Poloniex et al , there are limitations to these providers and having our own debit card will be a game changer. Importantly, I am not saying that it should be done now, rather let the conceptualization begin. Dreaming big , having great ideas and prudent implementation are what makes an innovative and successful company.
Note: this can even be done via Joint venture (JV) , Partnership or even M&A ....
