I am pretty excited about communities and will be making one (or two) when they come out. They are going to be a great tool to get people organised on steemit and help to give people direction of what to post and where to post it. That has always been one of the biggest problems with steemit, it is hard to figure out what type of content to post here. But with communities we can start to funnel groups.
Right now it is set up that it will cost 3 steem to make a community. And I do get it is great to have them cheap and grant access to a lot of users we really should charge more than 3 steem, at least for the first 3 months. This is our chance to get a lot of steem burnt and get some momentum going and I think we are going to waste it with 3 steem communities.
This is what I am thinking. For the first 3 months, as a premium of early community makers, people have to pay 10-50 steem per community. I have no problem paying 20 steem to make a community and have it burnt and I'm not a whale. It could be an early start fee. If we are all paying 10 steem for our communities it could go a long way to get steem moving. Then after three months we can go down to the permanent 3 steem price.
I think we should do this with SMTs too:
If we do this for both we could get 100ks of steem of the market in no time.
What do you guys think?
