Hi everyone! Hope you're all well!
My last video that I posted last week really got me thinking. I think part of my feeling out of place with the Steem Blockchain is that the rewards structure doesn't necessarily reward people for putting in good work... it seems to reward quantity over quality.
I think a big part of that problem is everyone's autovotes. Now, I personally have a few autovotes happening, with creators that I want to encourage more content from, so I'm definitely part of the problem.
When I first started, there seemed to be so much more conversation. Posts like Taskmaster4450 would have all these huge multi people discussions... discussions would branch off, and it was really fun. I made way more from good comments than I ever could from posts.
Very rarely do I come across good conversations in a comments section... which means that no one is getting rewarded for comments, which means that no one is consuming the content that we're all creating. People get voted up regardless of their content. When quantity is rewarded, quality goes down, and then you have to ask yourself 'what value does Steem bring to the internet'? If we're not creating value, then the Steem token has no value.
I honestly don't know what the solution to this is... and I'm not sure many people are particularly worried. I'd love to see thoughtful comments earn as much if not more than posts... once people see they can grow their account my consuming and interacting... then Steem is ready for mass adoption.
Thanks for watching!
