Quick but late update. I wrote a joint post with other activly participating Steemians. The main argument is applying linear(modified) reward calculation.
I am also building conceptual framework about the problem of curation at the moment. A preliminary conclusion is the mixture of different motivations, i.e. financial benefit and psychological satisfaction, under one territory (curation). I appreciate much to whom provided productive feedback on my immature suggestion, and will polish my thoughts and share them soon.
When it comes to SBD statistics last week, the price is mostly below $1, probably due to STEEM decrease, but still conversion is greater than creation. I am going to increase back the interest rate to 2% and maybe going to do more in the future.
