I guess we all would like to see the Steem go as high as possible, but I am content that it lies about 15 cent, because that makes it a bit easier to recalculate as most of the Scandinavian Crowns lies at that level (the Danish Crown are the strongest at about 15 cent.)
I have always thought that it was a bit misleading and also ethnocentric to recalculate crypto-currencies to dollars, a thing practices both here on Steemit, but also on the Alexandria.io project, and I read that Yours.com wanted to do the same thing. But to me a dollars means just as little as a Danish krone means to an American.
Why not simply let the currencies stand alone. 1 Steem = 1Steem, and then have a java-script re-calculator on the page - showing people the current price in a currency of their own choice. The calculation would happen on their own computer and not be a bother to the Steemit system.
I think that this system would also strengthen the sentiment that Steem is actually a currency that could and should be used as a means of payment and tipping.
