An Ultra-long Distance race: My answers for the Steem Think Tank User Survey About Steem

in steemleo •  last month 

Have read a few posts about so, here my answers to the survey launched by @midlet's at his new Think Tank community here

How long have you been using Steem?

Joined on 2017-06-23, 01:04 , more than 34 Moons ago

Where are you in terms of SP? (Plankton(0-500SP), Minnow(500-5000SP), Dolphin(5k-50kSP), Whale(you're probably not a whale, if you are you know what a whale is))

Somewhere at the Dolphinhood, around 9300 SP

Where are you in the world? (Just Country)

Barcelona, Catalonia, Europe

What brought you to Steem?

just the coincidence in my madness for my own research about blockchain technology... I was active first in other forums and cryptowebs though...

What was your first impression?

My first impression was not so good since site looked so old-internet style and the amount of senseless information were posted at that time but soon I found my niche and the interesting topics (tags) to dig in.

How do you feel about the current state of Steem?

By one side I am glad to see we have managed to get rid from famous abusers and bad actors and that perhaps we also are in the good way to fix our bad reputation as a Social platform... by the other, I think that many are struggling nowadays since the distribution of steem does not look so balanced, still, though...

How often do you use Steem applications/websites/etc?

Every moment I can, typically checking my feed 50 or 60 times a day (LOL)

What is your favorite Steem Application and why?

I was in love with partiko but now I am trying to get used on eSTEEM and APPICS in my mobile. In the laptop I still use mostly steemleo, steemit and sometimes steempeak and busy.

What’s your favorite thing about Steem?

Without doubt the people inside, the community

What’s your least favorite thing about Steem?

Possibly the unbalanced distribution of the power due to a bad start on that regard.

How difficult/easy would you say it is to use Steem?

I think, for the average Joe and Mary not educated on blockchain technology , it is still too difficult to understand the dynamics. We should insist on creating a more friendly interface, including the steemitwallet .

Would you recommend Steem to family/friends/coworkers? If no why not?

I have recommended to some. Just a couple still using Steem in some way or another.
Steemit, which is our main webgate to STEEM cannot compete for the moment with other more user friendly Social sites and that is a problem to on-board new people...

What do you wish you could do with Steem that you can’t currently?

Better interface that would help to onboard people in an easier way

What excites you most about Steem?

Everything, I am convinced we have infinite possibilities of use case.

What worries you most about Steem?

I'm afraid that even if we do our best to "clean" our image, that would not be sufficient in order to attract more people here. Also the we are currently suffering a lack of engagement which is bad for a Social Blockchain.

Steem is like a Long Distance race on which I started thinking that it was a Marathon and that after reaching the 41th Km I realized that is more an Ultra-race Trail of hundreds of kms and thousands of accumulated altitude :-)...

...but I keep on running.
