RE: “Steemit joining the Tron Ecosystem” - What it means

in #steem2 years ago

Technically yes, but I think that Steem will lose a lot of its users and traction and slowly fade into obscurity. Even with STINC fully supporting the chain there was a clear downtrend last year. Being alone on a social platform isn't much fun, just look at Diaspora.


Another crypto bull run could change that. I think part of the problem was that STINC always over promised and delivered very little.

I was also thinking that, however it is likely that Steem (the "classic" one) runs out of users and general interest before that happens.

Over promising and under delivering is also something that Tron is very good at.

It might depend on what some of the popular apps want to do? If they stick to Steem Classic and we get communities, I think it will be popular. If they all go, it will be tumbleweed.

I'm a little less optimistic about this: Tron has a lot of funds and is good at marketing, I think that they will use this to attract a lot of developers and users.

"Steem Classic" on the other hand grew more "organically", which is in general good, but in the last 18 months or so, it also lost active users organically.

In general, I think that the tumbleweed scenario is more likely to happen, but I'm happy if I'm wrong with this prediction.
