Feel free to watch the video at 1.5 the normal speed. It has been a while since I have made a real Ramble video and it shows. LOL

I would love to read your thoughts on the video above.

It was so nice to see you in PYPT again. I am loving your hair for sure. As for what you had to say in the video, I totally understand what you are saying. I hate that this HF has caused so many people to become bullies about so many things.

Tags are so hard for me. I am always under the impression that tags have had to be what was listed. However, I am realizing that I just need to tag things how I feel they should be. We just need to stop trying to pander.
thanks for a great Ramble!!!!!

We just need to stop trying to pander

I agree. I think that is what has been bothering me about the newest tags from the beginning and I just could put my finger on why they bothered me.

Very interesting your approaches. I think we are still a small community and it seems appropriate to promote new members. I hope your talk promotes a good discussion. Receive my affections @snook

Thank You @felixgarciap :) I need to get over to your blog and find out how Mary is doing :D

Hey it’s called The Ramble for a reason, right? 😂

Agree LOLLL

You pose a good question about why create the SMTs, and there really is no good answer. People already have the ability to build whatever they want and customize it therein. The only advantage to having SMTs is a personalized token, similar to the SE (steem-engine) tokens. The hope, is that SMTs will also be picked up by other exchanges, giving Steem a more prominent standing and a higher value/demand. You know how much money steem-engine has made on token creation? Let alone trading fees? Just saying, SMTs ultimately mean more money for Steemit - because that is the team creating them.

Thank You for the very clear answer. I have read this over multiple times and it makes sense what you are saying. Thank You. I know how busy you are nowadays!! HUGS

So I listed to this at both 1.5x and 2.0x speeds, and it was even more amusing. I'm so glad we had the idea on #pypt

I can understand the concept of SMT's, particularly as a way to use the Steem blockchain without necessarily needing to use steemit.com/steempeak/etc.

For example, over the course of the past few years (I had the idea before finding Steem and Steemit) for building a (hopefully) global photography game. The original idea was to build it to be able to use SMS and MMS as a transport because many people in the world have phones but not necessarily data internet.

Now, that has changed, and a huge amount of people do carry smartphones, so my original idea is a little dated, but the concept of the particular game is easily modified, since it is a game, after all.

What an SMT would allow me to do is to build a system where anyone could join and play the game without the heavy-handed Steemit onboarding system or the expense of Steem. It would also allow for an inexpensive token for ease of wide distribution; quite frankly, most of the tokens seen on Steem-Engine are very inexpensive.

I do understand your point about extra tokens on the steemit social system, but I think there is definitely a place for SMT's outside of steemit.com.

:D Yaaaaaaaaaaaa so happy you laughed :D THAT makes me happy!

Thank You!! This is a brilliant answer. It helps me understand other ways they can be used that make a ton of sense to me!

Thank YOU for taking the time to watch :D and give me your views!! Much appreciated!!

The whole thing can be very confusing and leveraging all this new stuff to receive attention for one's STEEM Blog is not an easy task.

You bring to us many good points. Of course, I will indeed think about these things.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and concerns on the last #PYPT (yes, I used that tag for attention to my comment. I WANTS MORE SHADE!) Podcast.

Have a great week, dear. Shout out to your boy @ecoinstant !

I just hopped in to say I loooove your hair
