RE: Coming Soon: Leo Twitter

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

I have no doubt at all that it will be a game changer, the question is whether it will be a good game changer.

With regards to the "rewards scalping" issue, I'm less concerned about long form posting vs. short form posting than I am concerned about rewards flowing towards what adds value to the LeoFinance experience. For example, a "tweet" of breaking news that "BTC just broke the $25K barrier! adds contextual value, while endless links to someone's stupid affiliate program doesn't.

Short form content opens the door to misuse for personal gains... the question is whether or not the community is dedicated enough to maintain some sort of "meritocracy" as part of the process?

In terms of what we "need" around here (and on Hive) I'm very much with something @frankbacon pointed out in his comment: We really need some kind of effective email/message system here if this kind of venue is ever going to mainstream in a meaningful way. EVEN if it's set up in such a way that you have to pay 0.10 Leo/Hive (which would go to Null) to send a message, to prevent massive spamming/marketing abuses.

It doesn't even have to be that much. I think 0.01 Leo/Hive would be enough for most spam.

You nailed it. It is up to the community to step up and handle that.

Most features are open to misuse and abuse. Spammers show up all over the internet. If Leofinance is to succeed, there needs to be a concerted effort not to reward those who are just abusing the system.

As for the Email/messenger idea, I think there are a couple of groups working on messenger ideas. I havent heard of any doing email.

There might be an opportunity for some.

The messenger apps, such as BEECHAT, don't store data on-chain. Email probably falls into a similar boat. Since they're meant for a small group of recipients, publishing email messages to a public decentralized database may not make sense.

That is true although I am not sure they are referring to onchain storage. Perhaps they are.

If so, I am not sure why they would want that. I can see the need for something that is immutable and away from the likes of Google and Yahoo. But there are emails such as protonmail which offer a greater degree of encryption.
