Let's be honest guys, last hardfork has solved some problems at the steem blockchain. We managed to get rid of the major bidbots, famous abusers and other blockchain squeezers but...
Conversely, some of the Bidbot owners have become curators, which is nice despite I don't notice them lately, surely because I am not the best content creator around however I am a really committed member of our steem blockchain.
At the same time, the trending page has become a sort of very weird place where the most successful posts are related with the STEEM BURN, in order to create scarcity, and a SBD Potato initiative which tries to increase the price of the SBD in, again, a kind of experiment of doubtful output.
I did not checked carefully what both initiatives are really doing but I believe that both are positive and can help in a very small fraction on the STEEM and SBD prices so, I am contributing from time to time specially on BURN POST by tinylly upvoting once a day a couple of comments there.
What is crazy is to discover that these posts and respective comments are being automatically upvoted massively by most of the so-called big curators!
Big and very well known accounts, including some of the best witnesses of this blockchain, have set their automatic upvotes focused on those posts and comments.
I have checked the activity of some of them, and believe me when I tell you that, the ones I have checked, are only upvoting BURNPOST and dedicating the rest of the time only on DOWNVOTING.
But, man, what about CONTENT DISCOVERING?
What about CURATING others who still are active and generating content?
Seriously you think that by only burning steem we will fix anything?
What do you think an investor can see while checking the trending page?
Burning some "spare" STEEM may be a good idea but I believe there better options from which all the steemians can be benefited as well as, for instance, the better distribution of STEEM and a much better image for the external viewer.
My advice for those Burning curators, as I said there are famous witnesses as well included, is that we should try to support the activity and content creation on the blockchain and not only on some theoretical "artifacts" that can help in the short but not on the long run of the project.
Please, keep supporting authors while trying to fix the Steem blockchain.
