With the new v.20 changes, we have to look into a few things for our profit models. With people only having so many comments, posts, and a lack of upvotes we need to check the cost of interaction. Of video uploading, image uploading, and account creation costs.
Steems raise in payouts seems like a good thing but that because we have fewer people interacting with the chain. So Zappl.com is currently looking over steems sustainability model with current features, and new changes that have been made and how they work without a new update. Things like auto-posting features, encrypted posting, finally working chat system.
Zappl has every plan to be back up soon, but we would like to be responsible dealing with the new system changes.
