Potential. This is what keeps me motivated to visit Steemit and Musing.io.
Steem is ahead of other blockchains because it already has a working product in the form of platforms like Steemit and Musing.io, it has a growing user-base, and it has a lot of developments in the pipeline like the upcoming SMTs. This places them above other blockchains and blockchain-based platforms that have yet to release a working product, much less grow their user-base. It also means that Steemit and Musing.io are more than just hyped projects.
So, despite the gloomy atmosphere with Steem's decreasing prices, I still keep coming back to Steemit and Musing.io because there is a lot of potential with these platforms.
