My 2020 Vision Is Nothing But Steem 😍
Most of you won't know this, but I've been in a major funk the past couple of months. I've abandoned projects, I've stalled on updates & posts, I just felt kinda lost with my life.
Thankfully, after a bit of inner talking, I've finally come to the conclusion of who I want to be, and what I want to be doing.
Enough of all this sappy hippy talk, let's just be straight forward with each other as I explain why I believe in Steem, what I see in store for the future, and why I'm fully embracing Steem.
🤔 Is Crypto + Blockhain, as a whole, The Future?
Let's say you wanna make an app. It can be a banking solution, a payment system, a gaming experience, site / service, whatever. If you want to include any type of monitization in that app, you are immediately opening yourself up to headaches.
Crypto eliminates these problems. Ask for the user's wallet, send the coins, and that's it. Instant payment, confirmed, and immutable.
Now let's say you want to handle data, what to emphasize to your users that you're responsible with their data, and what to prevent fraud. Have fun rolling boring database security features and managing dev-ops teams when your project scales.
Or, use a blockchain (particularly Steem in this case), and rest assured that the hard part is done safe & sound for you. No trust, just code.
🥡 What is the future of tech, and why does this matter? Looking back at history it's clear to see that what gets adopted, is the shit that makes developer's lives fun & easier. Crypto & blockchain solutions fit that goal perfectly.
🤔 Does Steem Have Value?
Ethereum is currently the most popular dapp program out there. EOS is dying (and I have my own grips with it, which will make for a fun blog-rant in the future), no one can agree on what flavor Bitcoin should be the goto (obvious answer: OG bitcoin is best bitcoin), and Tron is currently know as the de facto gambling-scamming-shilling-chinese-clusterfuck (it's odd seeing the number of tweets still complaining about the skipped Warren Buffet lunch).
So, at the end, we should be comparing Steem with Ethereum. Why is Steem better?
- Faster transactions
- Cheaper / fee-free
- Usernames rather than cryptic addresses
- Integrated community
- IMO, better / friendly development experience
But-But-But, Ethereum 2.0 is gonna fix-- Stop right there silly boy.
Will Ethereum 2.0 fix all that shit? Possibly. I'm not trying to be a dishonest fanboy here, it's very possible 2.0 gets fully released and completely changes the web forever. Where it stands currently, however, is a whole other story.
🥡 Steem already has the features that other blockchains are just now thinking about. Pro-Tip: The ones who win a race, are the ones who come in first.
🤔 How Do I Plan To Leverage Steem?
Every which way till Sunday.
I'll be writing blogs. I'll be posting art & comics. I'll be making games, dapps, and tools that utilize & promote Steem. I'm going to be so deep in the Steem-iverse, I may have to legally change my name to Steemcer ;^)
🥡 Content needs to not just mooch off of Steem's wonderful properties, it needs to encourage others to adopt it as well. I've thought long & hard about how exactly I plan to go about achieving that adoption, and I couldn't be more excited to share everything with you all soon... Very soon!
🤔 Steem's Shortcomings, And How To Navigate Them...
Put bluntly, I see 3 major issues currently on Steem:
- Account creation / new user on-boarding
- Resource credits / investment feels foreign & potentially risky to newcomers
- Overall marketing
I have a plan to help with the 1st one, and fun idea to eliminate the uncomfortable feeling of the 2nd one, and I'm very confident that with the help of myself & several others on this platform the 3rd one will cease being an issue for 2020.
🥡 But low engagement! But downvotes! But scammers, spammers, and shitters! I'll give $1 million dollars (in the crypto of your choice), to anyone who points me towards a platform without these issues. You think Twitter users actually get upset enough at the spam & shit that happens over there to leave? YouTube literally is taking away people's paychecks, and, GASP, there's still YouTubers. A platform's users don't make or break the future potential. As for low-engagement, well... Why do you think I'm going to promote the shit out of Steem!
In Celebration Of SPUD9, I'm Powering-Up ***100 Steem*** 🥳
But that's far from all!
I've stopped my power-down, and I plan (and by plan, I mean guaran-fucking-tee) to power-up lots more over the coming weeks + months. Oh and, of course, 100% of the rewards from this post are going to be powered ALL THE WAY UP!
More Blogs ✍️, More Projects ⚒️
2020 is going to be Spencer's content year!
I already have 3 different ideas that are being worked on, and tons more on the back-burner. I promise, these ideas & projects I'm working on will provide actual utility, actual adoption, and actual value to the chain. I'm not talking shit, stay tuned to see actual progress if you don't believe me. Being a skeptic is good, I encourage it, and I can't wait to show you the proof that I'm in this thing. Fully :^)
