Many good points. I will admit that my biggest concern as a HIVE holder is that we, as a chain and community, will be unprepared to deal with a major influx of traffic and new users. I expect price action to pick up this year.
Will we be able to capitalize on a major pump that brings new interest to convert that into active users if it is still too cryptic/complicated/inconvenient to learn how to use HIVE and understand mana, resource credits, private keys, etc.?
