You just can't turn a head in this space without some outrageous news here and there can you?
I knew there were speculations about Tron and Steemit being a team, but damn, what's this thing about a new Steem token on Tron? Or maybe I've read that wrong, but let's just take a minute to think about what this will mean for Steem shall we?
1. More Users?
Perhaps. I feel like Tron has a lot of passionate shillers, who would support almost anything Justin Sun throws at them. So, perhaps we should expect an influx of users in the next couple of days/ weeks. I have read a couple of posts so far saying STEEM blockchain has the capacity to handle more influx users should this be the case, only time will tell.
2. Price Hike?
I guess we could speculate that this news is partly why Steem has been going steadily up the last couple of days/weeks. I don't know how true this is, but with the current official announcement, I expect this price to keep going up. Wouldn't be amazing to wake up to Steem about $1 by end month? Damn.
3. More Exposure for STEEM
I think this is what is exciting me the most. We know Justin is not one to hold back when it comes to being in the spotlight, and is also one who's big on controversy. They say there's nothing like bad publicity and I strongly believe that. So, the fact that Justin is already made this announcement officially, it would mean a lot more people who follow him and his work already are looking into what Steem is truly about. I imagine Warren Buffet and other whales of wall street may come into this information, who knows how much STEEM they may decide to grab for themselves? Like the chances of Steem getting mass adoption get bigger and better from where I sit.
