2019 is just 2 days away and if I am still here by now with the price this low, it means that I ain't planning on giving up come 2019.
Prices change continuously. This is the nature of a market. So, the question is somewhat meaningless.
STEEM is not backed by a security. There is no magical equity that will kick in to keep the price from falling to zero. Neither is there any limit on the upper value of the price.
Crypto currency is a pure speculative play.
Steemians need to take a more sophisticate approach to the price of STEEM. We must ask how we will respond to the fluctuations.
I am in SteemIt for the duration. The price might fall so low that the witnesses can't pay their bills and the platform fails. I will be grubbing for upvotes until the day the platform goes blank. I would be proud to have a large amount of STEEM POWER when the servers go dark.
The only real question for me is how I will deal with spikes in the price. I have an upper limit to the exposure I want for STEEM. When my account value crosses a given threshold; I intend to sell half of my STEEM.
STEEM is a speculative play. The price will not stay the same; So, I am braced for wild changes in the price and simply hope that the price does not fall so low that the system fails.
Of course. I will still use steemit in 2019 even though the steem price is low as it is now. the reason being, I joined Steemit without paying any fees. and of course all of you also join steemit for free. we can all imagine how great this steemit platform is. because you can join for free, but also get paid for the posts we create. this is an extraordinary thing.
there seems to be no reason for me not to use this steemit. I will continue to use steemit and collect a lot of steem, and when the price increases I will sell it. I'm sure surely one day the price of steem will increase.
Even if the price go lower, I believe I will still be faithful on the site. After realizing I loose nothing rather I gain a lot, then what exactly will push me away from it. I have great testimony about steemit and they are beyond the financial impact, steemit is a platform for building up an individual into a social being, expertise and confident in their gifted abilities. So if the platform aim to improve me then go as far as reward me for my time. Then low payout can't be a discouragement to me.
Yes, I will stay, even if it remains this way. Actually people only get discourage if they view steemit from one view point (which is financially freedom). Steemit offers more than that, even with the low price I do well to introduce people to it, i recently wrote a post about steemit on my Facebook wall telling them of it impacts.
Steemit started on this low price, it only developed with time and during that period when the price was low for the earliest users, they truly understood steemit was a platform for personal development and the reward was just a bonus.
So I do stay and get the most out of it.
It is already 2019 and I am still here posting and Commenting.
Joking aside if you ask any well know Steemian he/she will say what I am about to say.
This is the best Time for you to accumulate SteemPower by either Buying STEEM or Earning Steem Power by Posting or Curating. So right now I have no thoughts on leaving Steemit.
Now to start with I came to Steemit to Blog and right now Steemit is the only place I Blog or write anything. So this is my go-to Social Media Fix of the Day. I like sharing my Day to Day activities here rather than on Facebook or some other Social Media Website.
Yes the Money that comes with it is a plus thing for me but it is fun Blogging here do I am not going to leave Steemit even if the price of STEEM goes more lower.
This question presurposes that Steeming is ALL about monetary rewards. While most Steemians are particular about financial rewards from steeem as they have opined Steemit as strictly an investment platform, others, including yours sincerely is of the opinion that Steemit offers other rewards aside financial gains, .
It is therefore obvious that irrespective of the monetary value of Steemit token., people will continue to engage in it for these reasons.
1) As A Social Media: Steemit will continue to be engaged as medium of social interaction between friends and acqaintances as in every other like Twitter, Facebook etc.
2) Exposure To The Outside World Via Internet Connectivity. It is very necessary to be exposed worldwide about your views and other activities. Steemit and it's Dapps like Musing-io afforts Steemians the opportunity to so do as all publications made in these media are accessible via internet connectivity.
3)Access To Free Counseling Services: As Enabled by Musing-io ,, questions about all aspect of Life can be asked and free counsel provided as answers are provided by fellows who are qualified and experienced in that field; conveniently and free!!
These are but few of the reasons Steemians would continue to engage in Steemit Blockchain , even without direct financial rewards.
The Foregoings , notwithstanding, there is every reason to be optimistic of better price regime for steem in 2019 and beyond , thus enabling more people to engage profitably in Steemit.
You are all welcome to a great year for all Steemians!!
Like I said before, am new here, I stil have alot to learn here. Am not planning to run or quit anytime soon no matter what. In 2019 , I'll be getting started on steemit. 😁
Only a sleep away before 2019, so definitely I would still be here on Steemit. Just so you know, I am turning 17 months here on Steemit and I saw how the prices fluctuated. I started on Steemit with $0.6 price of Steem which even went to as high as $8 while SBD reached $17. I saw Steem at its lowest this month, but it was even lower back then. I experienced a lot during ups and downs of Steemit so I'll surely still be here.
Oh for sure. I enjoy collecting different forms of cryptocurrency. I also get on whaleshares and collect their currency over there. I like to think of it as a portfolio. Don't put all your eggs in one basket as they say.
As far as i am concerned 2019 is just like every other day in the office which means that low price or high price the hustle still remains the same
