First, @stoodkev is the developer of Keychain. Sorry for the blackout in my video man!
With that out of the way, today, I talk about development on the Steem Blockchain and how hard it is to keep up.
Steem is an app-specific blockchain, which makes it extremely good at what it does, and with more apps being developed the harder it is to keep up with all the development. (Don't worry, that's a good thing!).
But because Steem is app-specific, all the applications build on Steem have an opportunity to learn from each other and that is extremely powerful.
Palnet.io, for instance, is changing the way posts are promoted on their frontend by burning PAL tokens and putting them in their trending page alongside other trending posts. It looks like this:
That's way better for visibility! Steemit can choose to pick this up if they want too. It's also a great way to burn STEEM.
Another example is the way 3SPEAK onboard new users.
Instead of creating STEEM accounts to let users comment, they let users log in with their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Google account and use Proxy Steem accounts in the background to make the comments in their name.
Once the 'new' users have earned enough STEEM via the proxy accounts they get a free Steem account and are now frictionless onboarded.
And remember a user onboarded in 1 app is a user onboarded in all the apps the Steem Blockchain has to offer.
According to the developer of 3speak, 80% of the users on 3speak don't have a STEEM account yet but they are currently working towards one.
80% of those users would have felt left out otherwise and now they are not.
I can only see the sharing of knowledge increase in the future and that's what you get when you all build for the same blockchain and trying to make it better as a community and where everyone that has STEEM benefits from its growth.
I talk about it more in my vlog.
