My conclusion is that it's not worth it unless you have like $100,000 or more to invest. I wanted more steem power so I put in two bitcoins. It only increased the value of my votes a negligible amount. You're better off just making posts, commenting and curating if you want to increase your steem power. Now the value in my wallet has gone down almost $1,000. I still have positive gains so I shouldn't be too upset, but it's not because of the money I put in. I don't think it will enhance your experience at all to put any money into this if you're not rich. The only positive is that if you want to hide your money from your self, it'll be locked away for two years so you can't spend it. And then there is the possibility that it could increase in value, possibly. But then again, you could lose everything.
