The future of SteemsteemCreated with Sketch.

in #steem3 years ago (edited)

Hey all!

This certainly has been an interesting week for me. With the announcement of the acquisition and the press releases, it surely has felt like a whirlwind. I am still learning details alongside the rest of the community and I’m hopeful things will become more and more clear as time moves forward.

Tron has something I feel Steem so desperately needs — marketing capabilities. There are many ways I can see this acquisition going very well for both Tron and Steem. Steem has really proven itself to be the vehicle that reshapes how social media is done. We’ve had so many engineering successes and very little hype. This all could potentially change in the near future and that is very exciting.

During my nearly two years working on the chain, I have been so impressed with the technical skills and passion this community has demonstrated. I am confident that you all are able to make tough decisions when necessary and I want you all to know that I am here to support you — whatever that entails.

Although the route may be unclear, I am sure that we can all work through the unknowns and continue the path forward together. Let’s Steem on!

Thank you for speaking out and letting everyone know where you stand. I always choose positivity over negativity and like you said Steem + marketing and Justin can lead to great things. That's what I am hoping for and will fight for.

Glad to see you active again. We need to push this through in a positive direction.

Action fueled by positive mindset has only one outcome - a positive one :)

Jesus, people, are you able to write something that doesn't sound like NPC meme?

I think you are missing the point...

Have to agree. The NPCs are the ones that say. Sun... Hype... Much... Business... Big... Money... Make... Steem... Moon!

While ignoring and / sweeping any red flags under the rug... It's NPC af... Smh

Nice...Comment...Follow me... Sir... Community...Moon

Nooo :D I was incredibly active here, and once I realized how pointless the whole system is because the Top Players are absolutely incompetent - I quit.

Now I returned just to see if they grew up.
Nope! Still naive kids

I hope Steemit Team will get some decent raises in this new transition. Thank you for the statement.

Hi God bless you..
I'm new, can you help me in the page?

Thanks for all you do Steve. The work you and everyone else at Steemit Inc do is really incredible. I know you guys have been killing it on SMTs of late. Tons of github activity. That is how I knew you guys were blindsided by this just like the rest of us.

But Steemit is not Steem. If the Steem blockchain can be bought, then it's not truly decentralized and the entire premise is basically fraudulent.

Very interesting

@ned sold the name STEEMIT, but you people are the main root of it! I wish @justinsunsteemit will not try to dead STEEM and build something weird. If he think about a win win situation, then STEEM will show how capable it is! Let's wait and see with positive minds and I wish it will work! Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us!

You see, when you talk about technical skills, I have to take your word for it. But yeah, I can totally see that!

I’m excited to see where this takes us.

Cheers, Steve! I know this has probably been a pretty wild time for you on a personal level, since this is both your passion and your employment. It means a lot to know that while there's still a lot to be discovered, that you guys are still part of this community and journey. Thanks, and I'm looking forward to helping alongside you guys as you continue to move Steem forward.

Thank you for speaking out Steve. Yes I agree! Steem and Tron together can do great things, because Steem never had the hype that surrounds Tron, but it has a great technology and an even greater community.

Thanks for that. And yes, marketing....


Thanks for this - glad to see you optimistic, after the initial shock I am too :-) Cheers!

I feel like STEEM isn't totally dead now … glass maybe half full, peace

Thanks for putting this out, I sincerely hope things go well for Steem from now on. I've met lots of great people on this platform.
