RE: Let's talk about Hive?
Why not use DHF funds and make an attractive airdrop for new users, engage them?
The result often tends to be people come for the airdrop then leave. In the end, just giving money away for little to no return.
This is true whether it is average Joes or influencers.
Who, only interested in investing and having a return with $hive will stake and have their investment stuck for 13 weeks?
Investors do not need to power up. They can hold their HIVE as liquid if they are speculating on it. The only ones who power up are those who are interested in curating or governance.
Plus the 13 weeks is a mechanism to protect against the exchanges doing what they did with STEEM. They really felt it when people had their coins locked up for more than 3 months due to the exchanges colluding with Sun. You can bet they wont make that mistake again.
We can continue spread #hive on Twitter but we need a real marketing that reaches people outside of our circle.
A much better approach would be to promote Splinterlands, 3Speak, Leofinance, or a host of other applications/games. Users are not going to care about Hive at the end of the day. Instead, they will care about the applications they use.
After all, do you care where your netflix videos come from?

My idea for Airdrop was not just "take your Airdrop", we can implement steps to take till get the Airdrop.
Investors may want also to make some profits in curation. Curation is one of main core of hive blockchain right? :)
Plus, last hf already did something to prevent Steem things. One month before Power Up take effect on witnesses voting vests.
When I talk about hive marketing of course I talk about dapps marketing, without dapps there are no regular users...
Thanks for your opinions :)
And we can't live forever with the panic of a new JS, we have to move on...
What blockchain have a stake lock of 13 weeks?
It was in place long before JS and is continuing even without the threat of someone like that without the ninja-mined stake.
None have it locked for 13 weeks that I know of. That doesnt mean that it is wrong.
Investors are not shying away from Hive because of the 13 weeks. You mention curation, which is correct, some are interested in that. However, if that is the case, they can power up. I do not think most investors are going to manually curate.
At the end of the day, I see 13 weeks as adding to the stability of the network. The more pieces in place for that, the better.
And yes the 4 week power up time does help but it isnt total insulation. With the 13 weeks, not only does it require a 4 week power up time, but also there are consequences on the back side.
With more layer 2 solutions coming online, there are plenty of opportunities for investing and earning. HIVE is going to have to take on more of a governance role.

Let's see what is coming.
I'm not sure about reduce power down but also not sure about maintain.
What I'm sure is hive is undervalued and we should do something, also not sure what :)
