It's a great project and one that should really increase our exposure on other sites with the right motivation.
However without having ad revenue on interfaces like peakd and hive.io we are really wasting any attention that we manage to bring back to the site through content creation when it could be used to generate more funds for buying hive from the markets and increasing the price and volume of the token.
That could then be burned, added to the DAO or even payed back to the authors who generated the most traffic with the right tools in place which would then further incentivize people to post here, increase the quality of their content and also to advertise it on other sites to increase it's viability.
Something worth thinking about for those witness discussions and growing out the platform going forward.
Leofinance have put a great road map in place for how to do it but the traffic here would generate significantly more income and create larger recurring buys. There is no better marketing tool than the price of hive steadily rising and having a strong business plan to keep it going that way. It's what investors look at.
