RE: It's Official - Bid Bots Are Dead.
Great analysis, as always.
I've been saying for a while for the people who hate bidbots that the delegators will (almost) always pursue their best alternative. So if it isn't making a passive 15% in STEEM terms, what will it be?
The way I figure, some of the more technically minded will set up auto-voting curation. Some will dump STEEM for BTC like you say.
With tribes and SMTs, I think the money will shift there for those that manage to create some kind of real value.
