The New SportsBook is Beautiful.. But Will SCR Be Accepted?
The new SportsBook seems to have all the sports we want and looks fantastic. The only problem is that its sole intention seems to be: re-accumulate lost funds (without garnering attention to BetScorum and Scorum itself). BetScorum will obviously perish with the new sportsbook, but that won't matter if the new version accepts SCR off the bat. If the sportsbook is unveiled yet doesn't accept SCR... where will that leave every faithful user who's still necking it out? It is understandable that re-investing liquid SCR into the new sportsbook won't actually provide any sustainable profit, but if both fiat and SCR are accepted, it could bring in the new userbase to the blogging platform where they may be enticed to become a whale and inspire good writers here.. It is a complex situation over here at Scorum, we are at a crossroads... The FUD and worry is exhausting, but so is waiting for something that never comes.. It would be nice if the team could just respond to the most glaring issues as they are the sole things that frustrate us as a userbase. I guarantee you I wouldn't make a single post complaining ever again if the inflated earnings were changed to USD... if we could see the actual value of our worth and this token, it would drastically change the appeal to something much more real (for the casual user base). Seeing the low earnings on a singular post may also inspire people to upvote more and create a real ecosystem with value in creating good pieces of sports literature.. I'm almost begging the team to simply respond with a few simple implements or at least provide the 'why' when it doesn't happen. The admitted mistakes of the Scorum team mean nothing when they are repeating the same mistakes this year. We as a community are here to help the Scorum team, but it seems we only get negative backlash. Will it be another year of posts complaining about how our token is still a penny.. if even that? It could all be so easy...
A way forward?
Is it my place to tell you what you should do? Maybe not. This is nothing more than an approach that can be taken to further strengthen the Scorum chain for the long term. It is also not myself that would be doing the work but you. I see the chain divided. divided does not always mean something bad. It is divided into sections, not only by the topic tag listed. It is also divided by the functions. There is the gaming side were wagers can be placed on the outcome of games. and there is also the blogging side. Additionally there is the trading side. At least three sides to this chain that all need to compliment themselves. To some degree the first two working together will support and gain support from the third. This forum works like a sports paper. It reports on sporting events and takes the wagers. This is my understanding. I am unsure how the gambling side of things work, I am not much of a gambler myself. I do play poker though. As an option for expansion. Maybe some out there could focus to some degree on forecasts. Providing forecasts for results on games, depending on how good they are, Writing about a players fitness or injury how it will effect the game. all this can be done to say why you think a result might be a certain way. A post stating this and a result close to or the same as the forecast would gain some following. Some of this following would make use of the gaming side of the platform. Just thought put out there to share.
