Are we seeing a spill over Fiat mentiality on Steemit...

in steemit •  2 years ago  (edited)

As of late, I am noticing a lot of dolphins, complaining about abuse of bots or other dolphins here and there. That it actually makes me wonder why there is so much hate going on in this space at this time.

I would like to share a perspective, of why I think there is such an increase in such blogs about "fighting for what's right" as the general feel you get when you drop by in this blogs.

I, for one do not intend to start a debate on this subject, but would like to give my minnow opinion, that it's much better to stick to posting quality content and encourage everyone in the process to do the same.

And it's also better to do what brilliant deeds of the likes of @sydesjokes, is doing to help minnows grow and make this platform bigger and better, encouraging core principles of sharing and looking out for each other on a global scale.

I think the bigger whales need to take it upon themselves to lead the way and build the platform in such a manner. Seen by many as holding on to a lot of stack, at the least, only gives the impression of whales focusing too much on building personal wealth, other than growing this great platform.

All this commotion, can only be attributed to a conditioned "FIAT" based mentality where, there is a need to accumulate wealth, because there is an impression of scarcity that looms in the air. I'm not saying money is a bad thing, but it's not the only true value we should be investing too much of our mind power, but rather we should invest in good deeds of sharing unconditionally in order to grow collectively.

As I believe, the good deeds you do, will never go unnoticed and will always come back to you one way or the other.

Please feel free to share your thoughts.

Wish everybody was less moneyhungry and more happy with the little things we achieve and/or recieve, I'm totally happy meming away, and if I were to win a small prize doing so then that is of course nice, but if not, I still enjoy my time making and sharing them , anyplace is better then freakin FB, not? Let's all be more gratefull next year ❤

That's Really Very Well Said, this is the Fact of Life!!

Nice topic to close the year off with, enter the new year with fresh ideas about growing, sharing and commenting in more ways.

Communities that grow together, are where you will find giving, sharing wealth of knowledge and encouraging others is what makes us human (greed) sadly always comes into the equation.

So finding a fresh approach such as @sydesjokes displays, encourages others into a stable more productive approach.

True that @joanstewart, I truly believe 2018 will be a great year for all. Cheers

Yeah, you're pretty much spot on with your assessment. The more you share and interact, the more your profile grows. And whales probably should be sharing more, but we can't do much about that.

All this commotion, can only be attributed to a conditioned "FIAT" based mentality where, there is a need to accumulate wealth, because there is an impression of scarcity that looms in the air.

Isn't that the opposite of a 'fiat mentality'? Fiat money is just numbers, and we can never run out of numbers.

Fiat money is based on a centralized system, such as federal reserve and or central banks, that is controlled by a minority. Which means those who control the wealth have too much power they really don't deserve. Because it's the real ponzi scheme, thats why we all tend to struggle and work our lives off, to make a living. With a blockchain environment, the system is de-centralized, which means no central control. Abundance thrives in such environment collectively. If you get my point, hence by sharing in a decentralized system, we all win.

Do you believe that Crypto currencies will replace fiat money?

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

Yes, it's a matter of how soon it will happen. It depends if the majority see the benefits of using crypto money over fiat money quicker it will happen next 2 years or so. What we can do to make the world a better place is be the good examples, that's why I really admire what @sydesjokes is doing. It can been seen as a force for unification for a better world free of opression and greed.

I can see the pro's of using crypto, but they appear to be dwarfed by the con's. Do you see changes ahead that would make crypto more stable?

Well think of it this way, the majority is currently using fiat money. If more people migrate over to crypto because of understanding the true nature of what it is. Then obviously it will stable out at some point, because more innovative ways will be deviced to stabilize things, it's just human nature. However, right now it's highly speculative, and it is more or less expected as well. The party is just getting started. 😁

The majority are using fiat money because that’s the only thing that the government will accept for the payment of taxes.

Combine that with the volatility of cryptocurrency (Bitcoin is hyper-deflationary) and there’s little or no reason to believe that things will change without a major redesign.

Don't be short sighted. Bitcoin is not the only blockchain crypto currency around. I was refering to crypto currencies in general. Governments will have to adjust if the masses move over, blockchain doesn't care what country you operate in. It will have become too much of a hassle to actually put an end to it, after the fact that the masses finally realized it's pros. It's here to stay. The fact that we are chatting about this on a blockchain based site, is one of many reasons it will only grow.
