RE: Delegation Renewal Recommendations to Steemit

in #delegationrenewal2 years ago (edited)

It offers something different than Steemit.com in that it's a mobile app and mobile first. What we can't isolate is how eSteem leads users to powerup Steem, burn Steem, or bring new use cases to Steem.
For example, Steem can't be directly used for advertising on the site. So, we're placing this in the middle tier.

Surprised to see this, we have mentioned how powering up and usage of STEEM to be introduced in our plans. One of the examples, we already released in recent update of Surfer, people can use STEEM to purchase goods inside application and we are adding more features that will, not only encourage usage of ESTM but STEEM as well. And other steps that were mentioned was, improved gamification across our apps so that when users are powering up they are rewarded, when they burn they will be rewarded again. These changes are being worked on and released with steps. Also, eSteem is not just mobile application, we have desktop application Surfer and Web application which we recently launched. All products working together and with iterations we are moving towards having fully fledged products, no other frontend currently offer. Note, we do run our infrastructure (full node) as well to help our users stay connected always.

Hope this helps to clarify some points...

Thanks for good work!

eSteem is a great project. In the future those things that you are describing if functioning seem like on the surface they could all qualify for the top tier. However, in the current model we don't see those in it, which is why it's approved, but not approved for the maximum. Over the next 3 months you'll miss out on about 10% of the stake. You'll have plenty of time to add some of those features that require powering up, burning, or provide a new use case for Steem by the time everyone is set to compete for delegations they are looking for.

  1. Requiring power up is core concept of Steem, before you can use any app, isn't it. And improving gamification and user retention brings more users in and encourage them to power up more. 2. Use case for STEEM as mentioned in above comment added to recent update of Surfer that allows people to purchase goods (ESTM) with STEEM and SBD. More goods will be added of course but it already exists.

When esteem Steem browser? :D Like Brave? Can we fork brave and replace BAT with STEEM? SPS proposal idea?
We NEED to see steem as more of a whole internet and less of a blockchain. we can have our OWN steem BROWSER forking brave, like Gab AI is doing with replacing bAT with BTC.

Wouldn't it be way easier just to partner with one of those teams? I think partnering with the Dissenter browser is the way to go, they don't have a token yet and it would be seriously bad ass if Steem was integrated into Dissenter's universal comment system.

This is a powerful idea - do you have a contact?

Sorry, not connected with Dissenter team. But I'm sure their team would give a Steemit Inc. employee an ear if requested.

Paging the steemit team! Have they heard of this suggestion yet? That andrarchy guy?

Maintaining browser is serious and big task for our small team, although we can check our options if it brings value to Steem overall. We will do some research on this subject. Thanks for suggestions!
