It’s clear newsteem is only profitable for large accounts. But small accounts never made that much money. Whales run this place and will continue to do in the future. So no decentralisation at all.
About the downvoting. It’s a good idea. Look at Haejin. He no longer rapes the reward pool. Unfortunately, a lot of people are getting downvotes who don’t deserve it. More than before. Bad situation.
I’m remaining neutral on #newsteem. It could improve. But all in all negative for the future due to bad management, lack of new users, lack of interest of investors and STINC selling their stake.
