With all the bid bot abuse and HF21 madness going on on the main STEEM websites right now, and with HF21 set to make bid-bot on the main STEEM sites even worse, PAL as wildcard/default Scot tribe has been a great refuge for me recently.
I currently have some 600 PAL staked, and had been considering selling some STEEM and increasing that stake. Recently though, the CreativeCoin went life and I received a 1,000 airdrop. CreativeCoin is a Scot-Tribe like PalNet, but it is aimed specifically at creative content.
So today I decided, for me, it is goodbye PALNET, hello CreativeCoin. I am powering down my PAL and staking it in CCC. So far I've staked 2,000 CCC, and I have 90 STEEM in outstanding buy orders. Tomorrow will be my first (of four) 150 PAL power downs, that I will also be using to increase my CCC stake.
Not sure yet if I'll be going beyond this level of staking. Things kinda depend at how successful we as a CreativeCoin community are going to be keeping out the bid bots. Anyhow, I'll for sure will be using part of my voting capacity down voting bid-bot usage on #creativecoin tagged posts. I feel it is of high importance for any Scot tribe to, from the get go, set out to keep out bid bot use. People, the airdrop for #ccc has been egalitarian enough, and the coin it currently cheap enough compared to the size of the airdrop for nobody to need to use bidbots. Let's all try to keep it that way and as a community agree that downvoting bidbot usage, any bidbot usage is socially unacceptable within our Scot Tribe.
Anyhow, lets not start off assuming the worst of people. I believe #ccc has what it takes to become an amazing and vibrant community, and I'm happy to become part of it.
