Tron-tastic - we'll have to wait and see

in #steem5 months ago


The market is a sea of red today. And it's tempting to feel like that's a reflection of the feeling of the STEEM community following events of the past 24 hours.

But it's not of course.

STEEM is a small microcosm of the wider crypto world. But for us steemians it's been emotional. Boy has it been emotional!

We've had the initial announcement from Justin Sun.

Then we've had the Dlive AMA (oh boy, the irony... especially when JS tried to explain to the STEEM community what Dlive is.. awkward...?).

Followed by the @aggroed call on MSP.

It has all been a bit of a whirlwind. We probably need time to pipe down and reflect.

Time to let knee-jerk reactions of powerdowns to drift away until we really understand exactly what we are dealing with.

Things might never be the same here. But we have to admit that it was far from perfect before...and,in the future, there's the chance now that it just might become Tron-tastic!


I'm hopeful this will be a positive, in the long run.

Justin Sun has MONEY and MARKETING POWER, two things Steemit, Inc. could never quite figure out how to use.

This could be as simple as Tron holding the millions of Steem they just acquired at 25 cents (ish), putting some resources into Steem development and marketing, and suddenly they are holding $10 Steem. Which, if you have 50M Steem (or however much is in the Steemit, Inc. controlled accounts) becomes a hell of a return on investment...

Thank for your comment.

I'm hopeful too. He just needs to inject his marketing and dev power into STEEM and we could be onto a winner. It is just talk of token swaps that spooks me..!

Yeah the swaps talk is worrying a lot of people. And the mixed messages coming from social media are not helping at all!
