We are seeing a lot of tribes emerging. I think this is a wonderful thing to witness. One of the biggest problems we had with Steem, in my view, was that it was a river of streaming content passing by. The search capabilities were limited and everything was just bunched together in a big mess.
With the introduction of Tribes, we see a bit more segregation with posts. Many of the Tribes can be described as categories. The content falls under a certain realm which is either of interest or it is not. Nevertheless, there is a basic understanding of what it will be.
For example, #sportstalk is fairly obvious the topic that it covers. When I go there, I expect to see sports related content. While there are some that stretch that into games and eSports, for the most part, we are in the ball park (pun intended 😁).
One of the tribes that I support is @steemleo. I received some tokens during their airdrop. Instead of selling them, I set up a separate account just to curate. By delegating my Steemleo stake, I am able to upvote 10 times a day. This is a way to get a bit of curation rewards in LEO while also helping the posters on there.
In going through the content on there, I will say how fortunate we are to have so many knowledgeable people on Steem. Steemleo deals with investing which entails all asset classes including cryptocurrency. I always thought of Steem as one of the epicenters for information about cryptocurrency since most everyone on here is living it. We also have people who have a long track record with it (a few years which is long in the crypto world). They are willing to share their information on a daily basis.
Of course, isolated on Steemleo, it is much easier to find what I am seeking. Before, it came down to what appeared on my feed, which entails a lot of what I am not interested in even though I like what the content creator posts. To be honest, I might love your post about the future of Steem but do not hold a great deal of interest in the picture of your dinner. On Steemleo, I get the content that is desired.
It is interesting to see their latest plan for attracting known content creators. The team put together an account where they will post the work that is on the Internet while holding the rewards for that post in an account. Over time, if the author does come onto Steem, he or she will have some money already awaiting for them in the form of LEO tokens.
Ultimately, it would be great to see Steemleo become like Seeking Alpha. That site gets a lot of contributors, many who are in the world of investing as a career. This is some of the potential we see here on Steem.
