Should We Power Up In Various Tribes Or Steem? Or Both?

So it’s no secret…The birth of Steem-Engine’s tribes has been a roaring success for the Steemians that have been dreaming of SMT’s since day one!

I know in my journey, it’s exactly what I’ve been waiting for…The ability to combine by two passions and bring it to that blockchain!

I had a fantastic question asked tonight by one of my most valued customers over the years and a brand new Steemian @RussellStockley

He asked….

Question: is staking CTP just as effective as staking steem ??

This is such an important question and I’m going to do my best to give you what I do and how I manage my Steem / Tribe tokens…

First, I’m a huge believer in the Steem blockchain. And with that, I know the potential that Steem Power has on all our journeys. Heck there was a ‘gut check’ post done yesterday by @Stackin that showed us how affordable it is to become ‘Minnow Status‘ on the Steem blockchain with these cheap prices. (Minnow status is any account over 500 Steem Power)

So yes, I think we should all get as much Steem Power as we can get…Especially if you have a long term vision of this entire blockchain and it’s various projects.

Now…When it comes to specific tribes, I power up in them as well.

But right now there are hundreds of projects using the Steem-Engine platform, so powering up in all of them would be a nightmare…Logistically.

However I do power up in the Tribes I believe in and want to contribute to.

I’m a huge fan of @Steem.Leo @ReggaeSteem @Palnet @SportsTalkSocial @Splintertalk and a few others. So I stake (or Power Up) in those individual tribes.

And obviously, I’m working full time on the @ClickTrackProfit tribe and developing the condenser. But I’m taking that out of the equation in this example, simply because I want to focus on the tribes I have no ‘ownership or management’ stake in…

Here’s my game plan for let’s say….The @SportsTalkSocial project.

I produce ‘Sports‘ content every week. You should check it out 😉

This is a tribe I believe has the power and potential to branch outside of the ‘blockchain’ space and attract some amazing content creators. Sports is BIG business and the more awareness this token creates, the more creators it can attract. So I not only power up from the curation and rewards I get…I have purchased quite a bit of SPORTS as well.


(I just bought 10k SPORTS during this post and powered it up….LOL)

So there’s an example of ‘staking‘…In a project I believe in!

And that goes for multiple projects on Steem-Engine…There is a lot of potential being built here every day 🙂

So to answer the question Russell asked…

I do both!

I believe in STEEM, more than ever these days…And see what is being built here. Real community. Real potential!

But I also believe in some of these amazing project and tribes forming on Steem-Engine as well.

So for me, it’s powering up in both….Steem and the Tribes I believe in!
