RE: What Does Hive Need In 2023?

There's for sure a number of great applications on Hive but they all seem the lack the flare and the real draw to bring people into the ecosystem. The only application that really kind of started to bring all of that together was Splinterlands a year ago (I have to be honest splinterlands of 2022 was disappointing on all levels) I'm hoping with the shift back that they get back to what made their entire suite of products awesome.
Every application on hive should in introducing some type of revenue format and a vast amount of that going back to creators and users. There's FAR too much I need money to run my project and dipping into the Hive funds (which I don't even think there should be one) If your building a solid product you dump your heart into it, take risks, invest and promote the F out of it as your focus to make it awesome and profitable. Not to ask for funds from the DAO.
i don’t even know what gets funding vs what deserves funding. the dhf is a great idea but my experience on the blockchain has been improved by a small number of funded projects. #CTP
Invested millions into HP, issued no coins. Self-developed, self funded. It's not flashy VC but it's honest skin in the game with accountability.
However, agreed that every application should have a money spinning model, atleast the goal should be self-sustainability. We have received requests from basically every proposer to support their proposals and have felt quite reluctant to oblige.
It is even more concerning when some of these have been around and the bulk of the work has already been done, yet the proposals keep going up!
As a self-funded project, with significant stake in HP, our interest lies in growing Hive as much as growing ourselves. There's our incentive right there.
Our stake which is basically about 6 or 7 years worth of dilution paid up-front, is simply a tool for us to have skin in the game, and help build engagement, retention, and more users. With more users, we can open up other avenues of revenue (other than our premium locked content feature)
Overall, agree that more scrutiny should be applied to projects receiving or asking for DHF funds.
I'm on the blockchain for over 4 years and I have discovered liketu thanks to @jongolson and I really like it and started to use it with some alt accounts. It would definitely deserve more spotlight :-)
