Starving the BSV trolls
After my main panel at the Coingeek conference at the start of October 2020, I was asked if I would record a fireside chat conversation with Charles Miller at Coingeek Conversations. The format was genial, with a range of questions that ranged across lots of topics. He asked me the following questions during our chat:
- Is social media was moving towards a 'paid model', and moving away from the traditional advertising model?
- What is the motivation for someone who traditionally got content for free, and now will have to pay to see the content?
- How are we going to stop the market for attention and people clicking on your content because of the person posting it?
- What my experiences were with using paid-for social media platforms like Twetch and Powping?
- How did my behaviour change interacting using paid-for social media.
- People want to get rid of ads - but how will the ad-free model change people's behaviour who are used to using the 'freemium' model for posting on social media?
- Are we getting better value for our content now we use micropayments to get our content?
- Is Patreon, or similar subscriber system the shape of things to come?
- How will the social media platforms work when they do not own the digital assets to users' content anymore?
- What I think of the BSV business crowd and people who were starting small businesses on the blockchain.
- Why I get trolled only when writing about BSV on ZDNet.com
- Is BSV 'the good guys'?
- Is the perception of BSV a marketing issue?
Saving the link here for posterity - to see if any of my predictions for BSV come true in a few years - so I'll be able to refer to this post - whenever it does happen!) :)
