I am not sure if anyone really knows how communities will look like.
Will they be like tribes? If not how will they differ?
At first I was very sceptical about tribes. I did not really see any value in them. It just seems like a Steemit restart with a different name.
But when Steemleo launched with a very narrow topic I was more intrigued to look a bit more into it and when I joined and become more and more active and involved with Sportstalk I kind of became a fan.
Everything felt more manageable and everyone seemed excited.
At first, on my second day here I already read about a huge exploit some people took adventage of and so cheated themselves to a big Stake and headstart.
Sounds a bit like the start of Steem? Yes, it does.
So throw the towel before you started or keep going? Most of us kept going and have seen the price of the token being way to high and way to low.
Different kinds of abuse and I am sure way more to come. What doesn`t kill you makes you stronger? We shall see.
Now we have more tribes than I have finger to count so I won`t even try. Many seem just to exist because someones keeps mentioning how fast many people made their money back and are in the black with their tribe and posts just get the tag slammed on it like a tramp stamp.
Is this bad? I don`t really think so. If some of those tribes bring actual value and get people into the Steemecosystem is this good for everyone.
I see the future of tribes in the niches and not the "you can post everything here". It just feels nicer to communicate with like minded people about the same hobby and even if it is just a small community.
Why this is not solved via a tag on Steemit? ...I don`t really know but everyone seems to love free tokens and I am no exception to this.
With SMTs and communites luring around the corner I would like to know the plans how this whole thing continues?
I am pretty sure 99% of tribe users know they are somehow connected to Steem or have been members before anyway.
I can imagine a world were both coexist and the serious tribes try to generate users as does @ned (if he is still around?) and so we got way more helping hands at the end and the best case would be a frontend which not looks the same like every other tribe and the user does not even know he uses Steem.
Maybe you can buy your tokens not only with Steem but furthermore with Fiat in the future?
Maybe no one gives a fuck about all of this?
Maybe this or that...
I am looking forward when the first tribes leader will speak out what they plan, what the challenges will be etc.
Am I worried about my stakes? Not, really as I am sure if there should be a transition the stake you have here will be honored but who knows the writers of "lost" got new jobs as well
