weku.io will not be the same as steemit.com. They may come from the same origin, but they have a different set of developers, a different user base (while overlapping). I'm not familiar where they branched off though, but expect it to be more different as time goes on. If you are asking if it can be a "real" currency, I mean, yes. Yes it can. We'll see what ideas they have in store for the blockchain though, because as far as I can tell it's not changing much at all. Would also be good to know if they even have a different set of witnesses, or if they're all run by the same group. Interesting times, indeed.
Weku has the potential to grow into something very big. However, in doing so, the developers would have to try and not be copycats.
Why did they make theories site to look the exact replica of Steemit? I mean the only difference I can notice is the name and color (weku having blue where steemit.com has green).
I hate imitation. It kills creativity.
There are better ways they could have patterned their website to look like and people would still buy into them. Yet, they went to make the 'younger brother' of Steemit.
The truth is that you can hardly be better than something you imitate. It's uniqueness and dynamism that makes people stand out.
So, unless weku has something that Steemit doesn't have, there would hardly be anything good to compel people to sign up and continue using the site.
Well it is hard to tell
As it has just started its journey and it is still developing. While the mechanism of it is similar to Steemit and already the users of Steemit are taking part in Weku which seems like a good news for Weku.
But to come to the point if the Weku coin does not comes to the market than it does not have any value of it. Based on the recent adoption of Weku by many Steemians the phase of the adoption might get to the expectation but if the team behind it thinks otherwise than it will be just a waste of time.
While to think of the tech they are using and their plan of going forward it does looks like they have a future and the users who are joining at the early stage will sure have a great benefit. So yes there is a great chance that weku might be like Steemit (though Steemit is much bigger than just steemit, it has many dapps and many more options for users as well).
Sure. From what I understand, Weku already runs its own blockchain with its own coin(s), so they are technically a cryptocurrency as real as Steem. The big difference is that Steem is bought and sold on some exchanges, so it's easy to know how much people are willing to buy and sell it for. Weku is not currently on any exchange at all, so we really have no way of knowing the value of the coin. But there's nothing that limits the Weku coin from being just as "real" as Steem.
When weku get listed on exchanges, people can be able to exchange it for other crypto or fiat currencies. It already has its own coin. All it just needs now is mass adoption that would promote its listing on some of the major exchanges around
Yes it is the same concept as Steem. the value will be determined by the ICO which has yet to happen. Will it succeed as a copy of Steem no one knows. It has to be listed on an exchange but that is further down the road.
My futuremind predicts:
