RE: A look at Steemit.inc delegation philosophy.

in #steemit3 years ago

The mega-delegations fascinate me.

As time rolls on there are two tests that those delegations must stand up against.

  1. If after say 1 year, which of the dApps would be able to stand on their own two feet if the mega delegation was removed?

  2. If a better version of a dApp comes along, will the delegation be moved to the newer, better dApp?

The mega-delegations are probably the single biggest influence on the steem platform at the moment. They need to be handled with care.

I dont think on their own dapps would be able to thrive or build a creator base. They are too similar to the existing platforms that already exist and are known globally. The strenght of dapps isnt in their idea or UI or quality, and we cant expect it to be in such a young economy.
Their strenght comes from what Dan and Ned created.
Thats why im saying that steemit.inc should not only focus on those that cannot stand without them, but also look at those that can, and help them push forward.
These two projects i mentioned because i am invested in them. But there are numerous others as well.

hey @pennsif

I think these 'visionary' dapps would love to be able to stand on their own two feet. A year is likely cutting it fine though, at least in the size of the rewards they would be able to distribute. They are leading the way (and thus imo deserve a kick-start), but it could be the case that a new and improved dapp arrives, with external funding (via SMT perhaps) and takes over the space.

The mega-delegations are probably the single biggest influence on the steem platform at the moment. They need to be handled with care.

The bid-bots compare with the amount delegated SP going out to dapps - not sure I could use the word 'care' in this case :)
