Hardfork 19 has turned my rewards from fractional pennies to real coins. Instead of cashing out I am focusing on building steem. Hardfork 19 has added value for small fish people under 1000 steem. The word is getting out, I think as soon as people understand what steem is and how curation works we will see an influx of new users buying-in and increasing the steem price.
Just my thoughts while riding the steem train.
