RE: A Vision for Hive

in #hivelast year

“If I seem like I'm contradicting myself in the same reply, I apologize.”

Nah, it’s fine. I think there are a lot more people like you than there are like me. No judgement there, but there’s just a lot of apathy when it comes to this stuff. With a primarily social media user base (assuming here), the technical/economic discussions glaze some eyes.

I don’t think it’s really “fiddling with the economics” though. The point is to simplify the economics and leave all of the “fiddling” to app developers that tokenize their apps (or not tokenize them).

In all honesty - I don’t think my ideas will be implemented as I’ve laid them out. As much as people recognize that something just isn’t “right,” we don’t really have leaders who are willing to try something of this scale, and the general community is still fixated on the “shitpost” faucet aspect of Hive. And I can’t even blame them because that’s just how this thing has been marketed (if you can even call it marketing) for the past 4+ years.

Still, it would be nice to reverse the stagnation trend outside of general crypto FOMO for once.

I like guerrilla-marketing:

  1. Post something controversial.
  2. Have a nice conversation about it.
  3. Tweet about it later on when engagement dies down, ensuring that you mention people in their echo chamber.

E.g.:

"Jimmy Scrambles" is an "I'm a real fan" dogwhistle for her and her SJW fans.
