I will be interested in seeing how the two committees mentioned herein will approach their tasks. Marketing Steem is presently mostly undertaken by users posting, and on multiple occasions, including the one that brought me to Steem in May 2017, I have run across Steem posts mentioned on other platforms.

One of the problems for the marketing committee will be to overcome the persistent failure of rewards and positive engagement to keep users here. The retention of users on Steem is abysmal, and I expect it to decline shortly as even less rewards and positive engagement will be possible after HF21 halves author rewards directly, further taxes creators 10% more than being paid to the witnesses, to pay for SPS, and the modified rewards curve increases the weight of stake to extract rewards. Adding the downvote pool will but exacerbate the flagging that has all too often crushed new users accounts and chased them off.

None of these changes will improve retention.

Development and Investor Relations therefore will make or break Marketing, as attracting eyeballs is not enough to keep people onboard, as we have seen. Trying to convince experienced investors to buy Steem as an investment vehicle will be confounded by the rampant profiteering and extraction of rewards by extant whales, who almost completely prevent any value from inuring to the investment vehicle and thus creating capital gains, which is the ubiquitous pursuit of investors since time immemorial.

These will be fascinating challenges to see being undertaken. I do wish you all the very best success, because I hope with all my heart and soul to see Steem overcome these challenges and enable it to reach it's potential to change the world for the better.
