Can EOS's rivals help Steem?


I saw Steem up at 22c yesterday, but it's fallen back a bit now. That has moved it about 10 places up the charts. There was a lot of volume in the trading. The idea of actually using the platform still seems to be a hard sell.

Hopefully it can hold on to some of the gained ground.
