This is a very interesting topic of discussion. I love the spk network's team and follow their activities. As you said, They have a good and solid reputation and have invested a great deal into this system.
If a token is created, it will serve as a great deal. However, the team seems to have a long road map of activities for the Spk network.
3speak also have other areas to build on. Like a way to stream live would be cool.
The idea of rewarding users for watching videos is long discussed.
This would be super awesome. It would bring a lot of people to Hive. Who doesn't want to watch and earn crypto? :)
Anyway, It would be nice if it gets implemented. Although, I strongly think there is a lot on their plate already.
