I think SMT's will present a whole new range of opportunities and options for us. Setting up a curation trail to provide votes worth 7-10 tokens is an interesting idea, but requires investors to actively post still. Part of the benefit of SPI is that people can invest and gain the benefits of SP without having to post or blog. Content creation is not a natural process for many, and would we be seen as "reward pool abusing" if we upvote a poor quality post with a 7-10 STEEM upvote, just to give an investor ROI?
Thanks for the input, plenty to think about.
