Experimental Crowdsorcing Rewards

Charts and tables don't tell the whole story and it's easy to miss the big picture. I'm trying a complementary crowdsourcing approach.

  • Share your observations about Steem including trends, yesterday events or news of related projects in comments to this post. They can be based on my reports, posts of other authors, your own experience or original sources.
  • First 5 high quality comment authors will get 3 SP and a proportional share of 50% of liquid STEEM payouts for this post.
  • What is a high quality comment? Your observation should bring a reader closer to understanding Steem, provide a new perspective or reduce uncertainty. No FUD/HYPE please. Don't plagiarize or copy other comments or posts, original content only.


The data and visualization in this post may contain errors and inaccuracies. Don't make important decisions without verifying data yourself. If you have any suggestions or found an error in the data, please get in touch with me on steemit.chat.

I can't offer anything in the way of analysing metrics but I am trying to generate interest in the idea making Steem available to buy via Paypal. This will allow us to channel far more capital into Steem and minimise any price fall resulting from the 'hard fork'. At the risk of breaking etiquette (I've only been Steeming properly for the past week) here's a link to my blog post about it. (Sadly not much interest yet...) https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@nikflossus/3-bringing-paypal-into-the-mix-and-making-our-own-market


AFAIK Paypal prohibits exchange of electronic currencies using their payment system. I'll still power you up though :)


Yep I was aware of that. That's why my plan has a solution. Paypal transfers are donated to Steem rather than exchanged. A donation is then very very very likely to be made in the opposite direction, perhaps from a separate account. Remember Paypal's preferences for making their platform profitable are not our sacrosanct rules. If we thought in those terms we'd still all be stuck on Facebook. All new markets begin like this. The key issue is refining the process to minimise risk. Also, thanks for the power up!


Paypal is notorious for suspending even non-profit accounts out of the blue, I am not sure risks can be controlled here.


Fair enough. I'll take that into account with my next post on the issue. Commerce however (for this is what this matter really comes down to) is notoriously difficult to control. If people want to exchange goods and services it's almost impossible to stop them.
As I said to @cryptofiend, where there's a will there's a way...

According to baby daddy @d3nv3r, Steem and steemit have done something other crypto couldn't.... It has brought "normal" people like me into the crypto world... Steem's value will go up the more mainstream users it can steal from reddit and facebook. With enough users STEEM could out value Bitcoin!


It has brought "normal" people like me into the crypto world.
It did indeed.
With enough users STEEM could out value Bitcoin!
Too much HYPE, though.

Powering you up.


Imagine 10% of facebook users moving to steemit... The number of Steem users would outnumber bitcoin users... Bitcoin's value would go down as more people moved over to the more "valuable coin". There are many coins that have more use than bitcoin. Bitcoin's main advantage is its the most well known, making it a gateway for other coins. Steem has the potential to be more heavily used than bitcoin by far. Steem needs fait gateways that remove the need for bitcoin all together


Imagine 10% of facebook users moving to steemit

This is a common trap for startup founders, btw! TAM or total addressable market should not really be used for estimations of possible active user base. I found an useful article about that http://www.christopherspenn.com/2016/11/3-markets-you-need-to-know/


Lol I said Imagine.... But it's nice to dream isn't it.
Steem will never reach $700 and I'm not trying to hype that, but someday people will realize there are other coins that are just plain better built and more useful than bitcoin. Bitcoin will be sold off and its value will finally correct.


Lol I said Imagine.... But it's nice to dream isn't it.

Sure it is :) Seemed like a nice opportunity to share something I consider important.
