great posts to read when you come back from vacation :)
i wanted to say that Removing Hive rewards will kill hive if done before we have 500.000+ (arbitrary number that i just made up) active users and RC are in heavy demand and can earn hive holders some profit. Because why would i have 20k of Hive when i can have 1k and do everything. And not that i am delusional that my 20k can make a difference to governance or proposal voting. Killing curating distribution will just centralize it.
