This is a very Steemy newsletter as many on the blockchain have a high degree of focus on the impacts of HF21.
It's important to speculate what might happen, but it's similarly important to just adapt as the changes come.
My opinion on HF21 is relatively simple --> off the bat it may seem like authors will be hurt by these changes, but I think that's entirely wrong.
In a purely % sense, authors are getting less % of the total rewards pool. One thing that I've been throwing around and gathing opinions on is this:
What happens when we all get 2.5 100% free downvotes a day (or 10 25% downvotes)? Don't you think a whole bunch of Steemians are going to flood the trending page and downvote all that horrifying content that we've all grown accustomed to seeing, but haven't had the power to fight off?
Speculate with me for a second... what if we hit these abusers with a nice little downvote meteor and cause their extinction once and for all?
For those who don't know, a downvote causes the rewards removed from a post to go back to the rewards pool. So imagine the effects of tens of thousands of dollars in "abuser rewards" being returned to the rewards pool. Could that mean more rewards for authors when it's all said and done?
What happens when the bid bots lose their business? What happens when people decide to undelegate to the majority of bid bots who are content indifferent?
Only time will tell, but I remain optimistic. In the meantime, go show these Daily Leo authors some LEO Love 🦁
