The importance of Tribes in the Steem ecosystem.steemCreated with Sketch.

Ever since @aggroed came up with the idea of an internal DEX built on top of Steem blockchain -aka SE- where people could buy / sell / trade, tokens they earn through blogging / vlogging, or invest in some of these projects even if they are not producing themselves simply because they feel that some of these Tribes have a bright future, many fellow Steemians found a good reason to keep trying.

Being a Steem whale doesn't necessarily mean that you are a whale in a Tribe. In most cases...not even close.

Obviously, the fact that at least in the early days, new Tribes kept popping up almost every few hours sparked the interest of those who had been "inactive" on Steem but needed a good reason to keep on going...

The smart ones, kept buying what all the smartasses were dumping and a new society was formed. Some even turned out to be whales in various Tribes literally overnight.

Funny how almost nobody appreciates anything that was given to them...for free.

It happens in real life too, so why would Steem be an exception to that rule?

Steem model is the real life model, in a much smaller scale...remember?

That being said, all those who "saw" something special in a specific Tribe, focused on what they could do best in order for that specific Tribe to attract more users and recognition. I for instance, really enjoy being part of @steem.leo community. Obviously because I "officially" curate content there, but also because I really enjoy writing about all the good things cryptocurrencies are about to bring and eventually replace in our corrupted world.

Now, the main reason I log in to SE every day is to claim my rewards and stake the ones I feel they have some potential. So as I was browsing in SE I took a look of all the coins...

You wouldn't believe how many tokens are listed in SE...

There is a Tribe for every taste. You love sports? There is a Tribe for that. Art? Weed? Are you a photographer? You love music? There is room for everyone.

The reason I am writing these lines isn't to highlight a specific project or vise versa. As I was searching the "new" "hot" and "trending" sections earlier today, I noticed that people really enjoy anything that has to do with art, any form of art actually. Whether it is a poem, a good story, a drawing, digital art...

As a person who can't even draw a straight line, I really admire those who possess those crazy skills. So change of plans. Starting today, along with LEO I'll start staking CCC tokens too so that I can reward and curate more effectively all those great artists among us who are doing their best to keep as entertained...

Maybe we should knock some artists' doors on Twitter too...

Besides, art, just like music...and love are universal languages...And while most can distinguish a great painting from a piece of junk, few will appreciate the efforts of the artist himself...

Can you even imagine living in a world without music...without books...without color?

Food for thought...

Love art in all its forms especially cooking an art form you can eat! lol! The #creativecoin tag is one of my favorites, I stake all tokens I get from all the tribes and hopefully one day in the future one of them will hit it big! Loved your post, upped 💯 earlier and resteemed!❤👍

Thank you so much for your kind words.

Hopefully some know what? Your comment gave me an idea for a new post..sort of :)

Thats awesome, hahaha glad to help!! following you now.😂😂😂👍

The tribes have been great...reggaesteem is other interesting tribe, hopefully I can get my wife's family interested and possibly on steem as that side of the family is Jamaican.

How great is that. Wish you luck...and be persistent :)

Steemleo and sportstalk, those are my favourites!

Those two have great potential. At least from where I stand

Good point you have here. I also noticed (and I'm using s-e, too) that tribes (with various hashtags) can define some similar interests and users/blogers/artists/etc can include this tags on their daily posts. Very simple but takes time for all steem ecosystem. Good start, or the first step for communities.

I guess my best tribed are steemleo, sports and neoxian not just because I got stakes in there higher than my steem power but because I can share most of the activities I love talking about and posting about freely while still earning some steem also they greatly upgrading and updating UI and developing their tribes and the steem blockchain.

Tribes were a great addition to Steem and Steem-Engine, if it keeps evolving, is going to be a great asset. There are so many possibilities going forward that we can take advantage of.

As for the tribes, I am a big fan of SteemLeo and Sportstalk. Dporn, because of the market, has potential. I am also a believer in SPInvest.

It is hard to keep up with them all.
