RE: Is Proof of Stake the main issue behind Steem?
I keep hearing my subconscious say, "you are part of the problem, or the solution." Sure the wild west that is block-chain (this block-chain is not different) is populated and governed by people and there are different levels of greed and selflessness.
I am looking toward being that change I seek and finding the ways that the community can find the constructive souls and lift them up....rather than grab my slice and have some higher power (government?) take care of those who need it.
In essence, get my nose above water, build myself an island and help people duplicate what I have done and the lessons I have learned (most of them not learned yet for certain.) Then, support those islands with the community we will build.
Sure there are schools of bots and people with 100 fake accounts spamming and hoarding and exploiting. I guess I would like to think we will evolve and snuff that out on our journey to where this platform will be.
Then we will most likely have a new host of evolved problems to solve I suppose but the sun comes up every day. It is going to take some critical conversations and strong wills but I am willing to give it a shot. I am just inspired by the like-minded folk I have met and will continue to meet that won't stop working at becoming the solution.
Fantastic post and great food for thought.
