RE: Juggling Steem and Hive during times of Steem Upheaval
It is painfully obvious from Steem HF 23 and the "100 days of Steem" that Steem has no devs.
All they can do is copy/paste what Hive does.
It's not necessarily the better project that will come out a winner in terms of monetary value but the project that is backed by the people with serious marketing and financial firepower.
This point is extremely rooted in the idea of corporate competition and competitive capitalism.
The way these networks are designed is to build value from within,
rendering all preconceived notions of the legacy economy obsolete.
Even using this logic, why would anyone with "serious financial power" enter a network whose fate is tied to the whims of a single individual (especially one who has been shown to hold contempt for the very network that they own)?
I'm not going to pretend to know how this is going to turn out, but it will certainly be interesting.
I think things will be a lot more clear a year down the line.
