Before the Fork I was already getting almost the same rewards by upvoting others than by writing posts:
Since yesterday, the Curation rewards will be higher and the Posting rewards will be smaller. This is supposed to attract new users and new investors to the platform.
I don't know who gets these ideas but anyone with two working neurons will see that new users won't be motivated to post anything, in an environment like this.
If the goal of this HF is to reduce the available content being posted, it's going to be a major success. If the goal is to attract new users, sorry whales, but you botched it up again. The only thing you are attracting are the vultures circling the platform, waiting to feast on our remains.
Sorry STEEM whales, you don't convince me like this. Buy STEEM yourselves, I will keep investing in BTC.
