The Old Dog Declares: Things Are Mushrooming on The Steem Blockchain!

in steem •  29 days ago

Have you noticed that things are continuing to mushroom here on the Steem blockchain? Oh Ya!


I took this shot during my bike ride in Tyrol Italy a few days ago. It got me thinking!


What Does it Mean "To Mushroom"?


Did you see it? It means to burgeon, spread, explode, increase, expand, boom, skyrocket etc....


Why do I Say That Steem is Mushrooming?


Since all crypto prices are down don't look at the price look at the facts!

  • Hardfork 20 is coming soon with easy signups! That's huge because who wants to wait 2 weeks?
  • No longer will we need to wait 20 seconds between comments but just 3 seconds! Finally!
  • In March 2019 SMT's will go live and this will bring many new entrepreneurs to the blockchain!
  • We already have DTube, DLive, Steepshot, Busy, Partiko, Steem Monsters etc.. Look at all that has been built and multiply this by thousands!


A look at blocktivity.info will further convince you that Steem is a living, growing USEFUL blockchain!


What About You?

  • Do you agree that Steem is continuing to mushroom?
  • If yes, what makes you think that way?


Until next time,

Io non sono così ottimista....penso che questo social finirà presto o, forse, si trasformerà in altro. Ma come social non ci vedo un grande futuro. Non è cresciuto o migliorato nemmeno come grafica ! La "cura " dei contenuti di qualità è ormai sostituita dall'attività dei vari Bot a cui i grandi utenti (balene o delfini) hanno delegato il loro Stempower. Perchi entra oggi è praticamente impossibile crescere. Molti sono in Powerdown... Tutte le altre iniziative che hai citato sono solo l'inizio della fine per Steemit Social... Ma, devo dire, che come esperimento, Steemit sta durando già tanto... Ma voglio fidarmi della tua esperienza e del tuo ottimismo!Speriamo bene!

Yes certainly changes are coming. With the onset of oracles and communities other Dapps will have the ability to implement algorythmic rules that take away the abilty to use delegated votes or any other criteria that they desire.

For example, you may find a new niche in a Dapp that serves photographers.

Of course all new Dapps will need Steem as the underlying currency in order to have bandwidth which will make all existing Steem coins more valuable.

This is how I understand the coming changes.

That's a kick to negativity!

·

Yes! Let's see what happens!

@kus-knee,
After reading the meaning of Mushroom, yeah I agree with you! AppBase, Hivemind, HF20 and SMT and more big news are about to come! So we must ready to see a huge boosting of everything soon!
By the way that photography is so stunning!

Cheers~

Exciting times to come!

Even though I agree with everything you say I still think there is a little problem. You see Steemit is already 2.5 years old. I was expecting to be adopted by millions so far, yet we are only 1.1 / 1.2 mil users globaly. In order to grow as a platform but as a currency too we need to convince all those out there to join. To spread the word like a hurricane.

We may write nice articles about Steemit and steem’s potential (and I love reading them since I write a few of those too) but we are the insiders

It is like talking to each other, while a great promotion should have already taken place. Don’t get me wrong, I know there are lots of people who try their best to promote steem amd steemit. What I am talking about is massive promotion. Like in radio stations, stores, maybe even use a big brand to advertise the product on tv or promote it on the web in a completely professional way. Who wouldn't be convinced? Join the platform were you get paid to blog? I was convinced the same way, but I found Steemit by accident...

These are some random thoughts I have for some time now and I was considering to make a post, but your post gave me the opportunity to share them here. Besides you have a lot more followers than I do so it might be best if some people read it and we eventually have a nice conversation. Maybe they sound weird, I don’t know...

I love everything about Steemit therefore steem too. Literally everything (well there are flaws I know) but the whole concept rocks, that’s why I am anxious whether we will make the big jump or not and if yes...when.

Have a great day @kus-knee

·

Good points.

Steemit was the Trojan Horse to get things going. It is still beta, once the SMT’s launch it wii fade into the background and the Steem you have will become very valuable as the principal token behind all other coins.

Once that happens blogging on Steemit will be a small piece of the Steem Blockchain.

once the SMT’s launch it wii fade into the background and the Steem you have will become very valuable as the principal token behind all other coins.

I believe that too, even though I am not quite sure that Steemit will be just a small piece. I had a conversation with someone a few weeks back and he dropped the best line I've heard about steem. "There will be a time, where people will fight just for one steem token"
Time will tell for sure...I hope that SMT's are the answer to that.

Some people know more of the inner workings of the platform hence a wider perspective of what more to come than us. @timcliff has posted a few but too technical for me..perhaps you can ask him?
For now..belief in the platform is what most users here have. Small key promotions seem not enough yes where Steemit Inc can maybe do something about it but perhaps they have a timeline to do it?

Love this mushrooming Old Dog...let it be!

Steem is definitely mushrooming, and it seems not a full week go by before there are news of more projects being launched.

The awesome thing about Steem is that it’s like a fertile soil perfect for the mushrooming of new projects. Great minds are coming together, communities are forming, and mind liked people find ways to improve Steem,

Steemit is the Think Tank and brain that will help the Steem blockchain to advance further then most people can even imagine

·

Oooh your getting me even more excited!

Nice shot for a magic mushroom which naturally growing and our bodies feel related to it...I am agree that Steem is continuing to mushroom because i believe it both has a positive effect on the user’s personality/life.

·

Interesting.

Always better to give more attention to growth:) Love the positivity, kus-knee:)

·

For sure!

I think one of the things I am most looking forward to is the removal of the comment limit every twenty seconds. Hopefully it won't be hijacked by spammers!

·

Good point!

I'm agree with your opinion!
According to me,

Actually, I can confidently say that I love what I do. Reason being I always dreamed of changing people's lives which I alway do with promoting steem and teaching people who to grow Mushrooms.

Thank you for sharing your opinion...All the best...

I concur my friend! I'm just glad I and the others here were Lucky/smart enough to get into in much earlier stages!? The skies the limit with this blockchain and it is something to behold.

·

Time will tell but things are looking good!

Very happy with the 20 second rule going bye bye!

I am super excited about the dApps! In face I have taken to producing my normal vlog during the day and posting at least one video per night for DLive! Got to use them or lose them, I believe!

·

Yes I saw that you use DLive!

Yeah i m totally agree with you sir,,,steemit is mushrooming,,,,you always upload the great posts,,,,excellent work,,,great photography,,,,mushroom are a solid little things,,,The mushroom is a preferred ontological speculation about a liquid,unstable thing on the bring of exceeding,,,,very interesting post,,kus-knee I always like your posts,,,,the common mushroom solid in the market,,,thanks for sharing this great post,,,

·

Thanks so much!

·
·

Most welcome sir.

I have waiting for this 20sec comment limit to go away because I type fast.
https://github.com/steemit/steem/pull/2483
Well, faster than many people.

·

Im not so fast but very impatient!

·
·

but we are all patiently waiting for the mushrooming. :)

To be honest many more amazing things are indeed waiting for us ;)

Lets just sit back and watch !

·

Aww amazing and clear photography @kus-knee and i'm agree with your opinion. However,

I have spent the last two weeks teaching people how to grow Mushroom for extra source of income. On many occasions people asked what else I do and I told them steemit. Therefore have been promoting steem using mushroom. Please pray for my project.

On the other hand, STEEM is definitely mushrooming...and i'm agree with @dandesign86
Thanks sharing this blog
Nice experience

·

So cool! What type of mushrooms?

Yep. I agree that the Steem Blockchain is continuing to mushroom. I say that because of the apps that are already here that you mention and there seem to be more being added by the week.

One you haven't mentioned that I think could be a big one for bring people in is Actifit.

I love your photograph from the Tyrol. The green of the moss makes a strong contrast with the grey of the wood. 😊

·

Yes you are right about that App. Are you using it?

·
·

I am @kus-knee, but I created a new account to post my steps on.

I have a few people who automatically upvote my posts and I didn't think it was fair to be posting a step count every day as a post. Don't know. Maybe I'm overthinking it but I get a bit irritated with the posts in my feed that are just the number of steps someone's done. 😁

·
·
·

I admire your integrity and I agree. Please link your new username and I’ll have a look!

·
·
·
·

It's @artysteps. 😊

The plan was to post my steps and some art there as I no longer post art on my main account.

·
·
·

I’m a bit of a health nut myself but I’ve been BAD on this vacation!

·
·
·
·

I'm rubbish at exercise @kus-knee but only need to do 5000 steps to earn some tokens works for me. 😁

I'm agree that Steem is continuing to mushroom!

  The reason why you mix teaching people on how to grow Mushroom and steem/blockchain is because life most balance. Crypto currency has to be backed with something that is visible. The currency cry more weight when they are used in transaction of goods and severvies. For steem is activities done by the Steemians. We should do STEEM/community support activities. Use all the other skills you empower your STEEM/community.

 Thanks @kus-knee for sharing your thoughts

 Love lots @pranto

Let’s see what the next 5 years brings.

Exactly... you r right... Steemit is mushrooming.... i wanna mushroom on too...

It is on the way!

It should keep going up and I'll bet on it, @kus-knee. We must continue to make quality products and support good work. After we've invested time and labor, it would be unwise to throw everything off the cliff. The harvest seasons will come soon! We just have to work to make them good fruits. Good Sunday!

·

It wii be interesting.

There is always a day after night...the faith on steem . it is the best time to accumulate as much as possible...so doing it my best way , just by posting good content daily....it mishroom and expand everywhere

Good job! Keep going!

·
·

Together we can...make steem mishroomed 👌

Posted using Partiko Android

Yes dear sir, it's a mushrooming society where everyday something new and awesome idea comes out and @appics @esteem @busy are some of the masterpiece mushrooms are.

·

You're right!

Yes the developement of the Steem Blockchain is amazing and Im very excited about the upcoming improvements. 👏 Keep up the great work and have a nice Sunday @kus-knee! 👍👊

·

Thanks so much!

Not just more apps. They’re getting better and better. All it will take is just one really good app to take this thing to the moon.

I agree with your opinion, the wide range of possibilities to the environment of steemit based on the blockchain of steem, besides what you named, I use steempress and steemhunt.
Thank you very much for sharing all this information
I wish you a great day

·

Yes Steemhunt is very cool!

Steem has had a great track record in recent years, growing gradually among the people and different communities who try to compete. The most significant thing at the moment is the amount of waiting for the new registrations and the value of the currency now, capable of surprising us in December.

·

Let’s see!

I do believe that Steemit is mushrooming. There are benefits to mushrooming and it can be quite exciting as long as it's quality is not compromised. Thanks @kus-knee

·

Indeed!

Nice post

Your photography is always good.I love your photography

Of course you can get a Mushrooming blockchain.your Mushrooming photography is very very beautiful

Thanks for sharing!

Well, to be very honest Steem is continuing to mushroom the reason you yourself has explained that it's charisma has flown towards busy, DTube, DLive, Steepshot, Busy, Partiko, Steem Monsters and many other several communities. This thing is not gonna stop rather it would bring a massive traffic on the steemit and evolve the whole scene in a very effective way. Just wait and watch :)

After the definition i completely agree with you on that the things are mushrooming on the steem blockchain we are ever growing like a family together steemians for life :D

Beautiful mushroom photography.. beautiful blurry background effect make this mushroom look more beautiful 👌

I certainly hope that it will get better :D I miss a lot of Steemians that left and I hope they'll have a reason to return ^^
