Bye Steemit. Hello Scorum.

I have been on the Steemit platform since '16. I truly care for and have put so much time and energy into this platform. I've given away hundreds of Steem for contests and games. I wear my heart on my sleeve and have not been afraid to give people a piece of my mind. Do not get it twisted, I want Steemit to succeed more than I want my celebrity crush to call me first.

Steemit gave me a purpose. Something that has changed my life. I have done workshops at my local library teaching people about crypto and Steemit.

I have another one in September I'm really excited about. When I was bouncing around trying to figure out what to do with a Bachelor's degree in one hand and no job prospects in the other. It hasn't made me rich but it has given me a richer outlook on life. I am not going to power down or leave my friends alone. I'll support them and upvote good content.

I sure as hell am not leaving. Haven't powered down before, not doing it now. I am staying for the games at this point. I am ready to raid players with @battleaxe on @chibera. To see how well my @steemmonster cards do in combat against @ackza on @dlux.
But Steem without SMTs and communities is a sad mess. Case in point the only way most are reading this not because it was recognized as being honest and good quality and people upvoted it on high because it is. But because I used an upvote service to purposefully screw with the Proof-of-brain. I am doing this because I am fed up with posting on Steemit.
The algorithm is BROKEN and weird like @jerrybanfield 's back after a night alone. I rather go somewhere where I can do kickass content and get amazing rewards based on the merit of my quality writing!

I am PISSED

If Steem INC can actually fix their broken toy then I will be a high quality posting machine. I have a Bachelor's degree like I said. So the articles and papers that I needed to produce in order to pass some classes that I paid hundreds of dollars for is 10 times the quality on some of the stuff on trending. Few have balls like me and I know it. If this gets downvoted to hell then I know I am right.
Question is will the brain drain from Steemit start then or some time after? So what now @swolesome?

Going to another Steemit?

I am just focusing my attention elsewhere for now. Scorum is combating abuse and listening to their community. Today.

For example. This Scorum user bought some stake and started upvoting his comments to over 1000$+. The community pushed back and the user got his upvotes negated via flags. The developers saw the damage and the outcry and decided to remove comment self upvoting entirely. No longer can a user make a single word comment and within hours of it paying out he upvotes them to absurd amounts. This is a very hands on team. Coming from a platform where core members of Steem Inc have said they don't care about us. They care about onboarding the next million after us. It feels refreshing. So what else makes Scorum different?
Scorum is a platform that is in it's infancy much like Steemit was a few years ago. Tomorrow's whales are starting today acquiring their stake with a few twists.
This is a platform for those who like Sports! Can you talk about non sport topics, of course! I have this old fire in my belly that's back. It started when someone sent me this and it finally erupted when this post evolved into a declaration halfway through.

More posts to come but let's just look at the trending page vs what you see on main page on Scorum pictured at the top of the post. If you think that looks better than the company who's product is already two years old.

When I use reddit, I don't use the default homepage because the hive-mind isn't always right in deciding what should float to the top. The key to getting the most from Steemit is find people worth following through discord, and through the people you follow, you network to other like-minded people.

In order to get a good experience here, you have to be picky in who you choose to follow. Its not the platform. I have a decent experience here, and the bots haven't ever effected it negatively, but I don't use trending because its equal to the Reddit homepage.

It's very good advice. I never use trending, it's a point on the algorithm. I have showed prospective users steemit and they look at the trending and change their mind about doing it. I am experimenting with different front ends, I heard writer's block is making one that goes on content and not based on the payout size.

I share the exact same sentiments expressed here. There's no point in posting (without using upvote services) until there is account-based voting or someother fix. Until then why waste your intellectual property on minimum exposure & no profit. I would rather grow my audience on other platforms then spend days trying to earn STEEM. I love the STEEM blockchain itself, being 3rd overall for network activity, but it's apparent this place has become a scrapyard for bots & abandonned accounts. I'll be sussing Scourum thanks to your info.

Awesome to hear. The only way we can make a difference on here is if we help a platform that well isn't on here.

Our mission is to jump-start the sports media evolution and enable Scorum community members to be fairly rewarded for sharing their passion for sports.

It sounds like they are aiming for their niche of the market which is good times for the ecosystem as a whole.

Brilliant trending page for sports enthusiasts, my question is... why would Scorum give more of a fuck than Steemit INC does about content that is even more 'irrelevant' to their mission?

·

They may not but only one way to find out. The developers, team members and users I have talked to have been really easy to talk to and level headed. They may be open to quality content that's not their target. Hey if they catch a red fish while chasing a blue fish I am sure they'll be happy.

Does the fact that it is only for sports limit the market ? I think so. But the project looks great going to sign up !

If the team sees how big it can be I see no reason why they wouldn't expand. Awesome! Let me know your username on there.

I love you @swolesome.

I wish I liked sports.

That it does :).

Interesting. I have joined scorum under the username rondras and have published my first post. Let's see. One question I have - is there any way to buy their tokens? I cannot find a market for it at the moment.

·

Openledger is the only market that is available for now. The community manager I spoke to said they are focused on getting the updates and betting interface up first before paying to go on exchanges. But they are actively looking for vote based contests.

I am looking for your posts now on there, hope you like it.

I have to admit that I haven't used open ledger so far. But I will tried it out as it is always a bit more fun if you own a stake - at least a small one.

An interesting article

they live with advertiser money, not a revolutionary idea.

yeah, it's interesting to see how well some are doing using the #teamgood tag, I actually have followed some making more, not everyone is going to have the money or want to bot their stuff to the traditional trending which is why I created an umbrella/infohub to 'help the helpers' and a bit of a safe zone, cheers my friend :)

Thanks Axey :) Sending good vibesss your way.

A lot of things. It is easier to get on trending, no prevalent bid bots, crisp interface, passionate and very active community.

Yea but scrotum is such a bad name for a platform!

nice article buddy we will definitely join you there and hope that we also get success as you have got

·

Awesome. Let me know your username on there and I will check out your posts.

ok thanks i will

It is almost a year for me on steemit and I have grown to accept the trending page flaws and self upvotes. I still have hope that things will change and that is why I won't be leaving. Can not wait for SMT and steemmonster to start. The platform still has a bright future and if things get fixed like no more reward pool rape and trending page then steem to the moon. Thanks.

·

It is a matter of realizing that Steem's blockchain is the first mover. If they do not fix their warts others will eat into their market share. This could be one.

I find it weird that it's a sporting platform but yet is setup to be a similar platform as Steemit. I can see non sports people taking over the platform in short order.

·

It is quite possible and there is even an esports section. It is sort of evolving into video games/gaming. So I see what you're saying.

·
·

I plan on doing sports stuff over there and normal blogging here. I've accepted that blogging is just a hobby that I make a tiny bit of money from.

Nice! There are even fantasy leagues over there to earn crypto.

·

·

I'm interested by the whole sports betting side of things. I could see myself getting into that using crypto earn from blogging.

That would be clever, and like I said, they have a very unique fantasy sports option over there so you can win more crypto for showcasing your sports smarts. It isn't just play to play you can play fantasy to win crypto!
