As the Tribes develop I see the vision starting to make more sense to many.
Steem is a blockchain. There are many applications on Steem, many of them are blogging sites, but many of them are games like SteemMonsters, SteemSlots, Drugwars and other entertainment.
People use social media every day. 2 billion of them per day. They use it to communicate, to shre pictures of dinner or post a picture of their adorable cat. They write opinions, discuss politics, seek financing, notify or gather funds for a charity. Some make music or share their exercise routine.
We already have apps for many of these things. As the community begins to reorganize keep a few things in mind...
Everyone has different interests and wants to see different results. In order to have boarder appeal we need a place for the intellectuals to write and the creatives to art and the fitness nuts to push up.
But not all of us want to see all of it. We need small groups of like-minded people to be able to find each other and discuss and be active in their own communities.
Those communities might need to have different financial incentives.
We are still early adopters and these projects are young. Many will fail some will not.
If you feel the need to tell me Steem-Engine is centralized that's cool, but I will roll my eyes. Yes it is, but it is also a couple of months old... And do I need to remind you of how much stake SteemIt Inc could control?
The tribes are barely a couple of months old, they are already improving, they are being moderated.
Many are protecting their investment via moderation.
We are still early, the vision is developing, keep watching.. It's messy, it's new, it's imperfect.
Thank you to those who are building.
