RE: Usecases for POB is a must but first step - Ad revenue .
Last but not least, if mark takes over, I will immediately sell my stake and leave,
As soon as any of the dinosaurs of HIVE start having highly influential opportunities to taint the atmosphere here, I'm out. This place has went from strength to strength because it's not trying to repeat the same patterns as before.
So many people are completely missing the point and can't see how DPOS is incredibly flawed. If POB repeats the same behaviors as other tribes, it's just going to be a token with BTC's tokenomics and the same archaic influencers encouraging boring posts with little social value (a dogshit example of Proof Of Brain pretty much).
If this happens, I'll be joining the platform that clones POB and starts fresh. I've said from day 1 that there is nothing stopping someone else from replicating this model. This is the main "threat" to the price everyone is so obsessed with, not the large stakeholders dumping* (because for the most part they are well-balanced and see the long term potential)
I'll go out on a limb and say that some of the larger stakeholders will stop giving a fuck if there is evidence of the platform spinning down the toilet. And best believe that's when the price will hit 0.1.
With regards to burning... read this. Look at the community response.
