You can safely ignore any post that would not exist if the STEEM unit price were $1. You can safely attribute the STEEM unit price to the overall bear market.
Compared to other projects, the amount of development and progress means when things do change, the price will be much more violent to the upside.
Perhaps at that point, all the people who rage quit, will regret not making that extra post for that extra STEEM back when people had to hunt to find stuff worthy of an upvote.
Bear markets are the time for building.
