There is no reason for anyone to join the Steem blockchain if they don't like any of the Apps build on top of it besides speculative investment reasons.
Normal users are not going to join the blockchain because we have free transactions and 3 second block times and all that stuff. They expect things to work properly because that's what they are used to anyway.
There is only one reason anyone would join the Steem blockchain today willingly and that's because they like any of the the products build on top of Steem.
Luckily for us, after almost 3 years of having this blockchain there are now more apps than ever for people to choose from and they don't all have to do with social media.
A fitbit owner that is not interested in social media has now become a potential Steemian because of @actifit.
A gamer that is not interested in social media has now become a potential Steemian because of @steemmonsters.
With the improvement of Apps on the Steem blockchain I expect the communities (users) surrounding these apps to grow.
And that gave me another idea for a reason to have a Steem account. I'm just not sure if it can be done.
Could it be possible to make the Steem login also a login for websites that are not build on top of the Steem Blockchain?
Logging in to all kinds of different websites is a cumbersome process. What if you had only 1 login for any website in the world? your Steem account.
Want to buy a pair of shoes at this new store you found: login = Steem account.
Want to leave a comment at a forum about cars? login = Steem account.
You can even take it further. With keychain you would already be logged in to any website that supports it.
Always anytime. No more logging in and no more figuring out a new username no more different passwords.
If I could have 1 account that has the security features that the Steem Blockchain already provides and can use it to login everywhere it is something I would be willing to pay 1 time $10 for.
A universal login.
I'm going to ask around if this can be done.
I talk about it more in my vlog.
