I have been away the last week or so at SteemFest and took the opportunity to shill some Smoke.io to a fair few people I met along the way. I am hoping that some of them will start popping up here in the coming weeks to trial the community and see what it has to offer and get accustomed to 50/50 curation.
A large part of the decentralization puzzle is of course distribution of the tokens but more importantly than that, it is the connection of the blockchain to real world people and businesses. There is a lot of space for social chains and no one should see it as competition at this point at least as there are literally billions of people yet to arrive.
What we need to do is build a community of decentralized thinkers and actors, no matter what chain they happen to use. In time, it will create a whole range of ways to leverage each chain for use case and cross-connect communities so that the entire ecosystem is antifragile.
The smoke community at this point should be looking to bring in relevant friends and family that add value to the smoke chain and are willing to power up to become distributors of the future. Some people seem to want to hoard coins at this point but in the end, it is not the best way to go for a future position. In my experience, community thinkers will always out-perform maximizers in the long term.
Smart individuals understand it is smart to build communities.
