RE: A Vision for Hive

in #hivelast year

If eliminating rewards on the base layer will allow dapps and communities to use tokens to access resource credits and get people in faster and easier with sign up I'm all for it. I would love for the account and wallet creation to not be so tied together and users can come in check it out play around and if they like it latch on a wallet and get going on layer 2 without having to worry or get delgations and all that

hi @chekohler

wouldn't that mean an exodus of most users and turning most communities into little ghost-towns?

just wondering

I could be wrong but I’m also willing to piss off 15k daily active users if it means opening up the site to hundreds of thousands of users in the process

What I think would happen is HIVE would become the utility token and base pair for all interactions on HIVE!

Then communities could use SMTs to distribute their token or tribes so people focus on those rewards instead of dual rewards giving tribes and communities far more control over their tokenomics and demand and they will need to keep their user base growing bas not hive Being the reason to blog or do other stuff on the chain

It will also make it easier to get people in with the base layer free of the reward system it can be used for more support for features we need to grow a wider ecosystem or that’s just how I see it

Dear @chekohler

Obviously. If it would only mean, that killing current userbase would help onboard masses - then who wouldn't like it. However, what's real chance that this would happen? I would say: close to zero.

What I think would happen is HIVE would become the utility token and base pair for all interactions on HIVE!

Firstly, HIVE would need to offer any utility which would attract new users. Turning economy and social structures upside down can easily destroy this blockchain if it would be done without offering something of value/use.

I wish to see it the way you do. And perhaps I'm wrong. Unfortunatelly I'm not very optimistic.

I’m just of the opinion that if you’re in blockchain to play it safe then you’re in the wrong space! What is the point of holding on to what we have when it’s not getting us anywhere?

There is steem and blurt doing the same thing unless you differentiate yourself from other chains and products what’s the incentive to use HIVE?

I get people are invested financially and emotionally but I honestly couldn’t care about that! I would much rather see this place be bold and try something new then sit on what we have and wait to be over taken by real innovators

HIVE competes with its forks, other block chains and centralized systems if it can’t Even break out as the dominant fork whats the point?

The beauty is you can always switch to a chain that supports your ideals! I wouldn’t force anyone to stay where they don’t like what’s going on

I’m just not that tied to any one protocol or any one user or witness, I’m tied to seeing improvements as is the case with any business

His project would be useless if that happened. That's what he is trying to say.

To certain degree I agree with you @enforcer48

I just read your comment. Thanks @chekohler
