SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 30 December 2018

What a jolly quiet Sunday.

Only one sleep to go til it’s Monday, and then another one and it’s 2019.

Really not much to report on except for a couple of engines…

Engine by @shredz7

I’m not a techy devvy so this one is arriving on the wrong platform for me.

But it looks Smart and it looks like it might be heading in the right direction…

Steem doesn’t have enough blockchain developers…

Yet we are in a more important time than ever to be increasing Steem’s feature set and improving the platform’s quality as a whole. Right now it doesn’t seem to be possible, or at least is not happening, for outside blockchain developer volunteers to collaborate with Stemmit Inc on building more features and improving the blockchain as a whole.

Engine is a DApp running on Steem using steem-state (currently in testnet) which means that it runs on top of the Steem blockchain without actually being directly coded into it. Engine’s goal is to increase the agility and collaboration in developing more features for Steem.

I await more comment on this.

Duplo Engine by @roelandp

Meanwhile top witness and SteemFest Impressario @roelandp has managed to hook up the Duplo Steam Train he bought his son for Christmas to the Steem Blockchain.

Choo, choo…

State of Steem Discord – First Report by @impactn

The State of Steem Discord is building up a head of steem, and the discussions are beginning to flow well.

Yesterday we mentioned we are looking for voluntary ‘Reporters’ to monitor the discussions in each of the Working Group channels and compile brief weekly summaries.

Today we have the first report post from the Discord. Thank you @impactn.

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 28 December 2018

Another quiet day on the Steem Ranch.

Not much happening anywhere with many people away on festive breaks.

I am hoping it all bursts into life on Wednesday.

But in the meantime we can all look out for the little glimmers of shiny hope.

Actifit Account Creation Service

@actifit has launched its account sign up service. $10 is not bad for the package on offer. It will be an interesting test case to see how this one goes…

End of Year Reviews

With only a few days left in 2018, the End of Year Reviews are beginning to pop up.

A couple of good ones to check out so far are from @therealwolf and @dsound…

End of Witness @fulltimegeek

Sadly @fulltimegeek has switched off his witness. He was making progress into the 50’s, but still some way to go to hit the home runs.

Let’s hope this frees up time for FTG to push forward with his Vaporchain token development work.

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 27 December 2018

We are in the Twixmas lull now.

All is quiet on the steemit front.

Just a few points of reference for the discerning eye…

State of Steem Discord Server

An open space Discord has been set up to run alongside the remaining six State of Steem Forums (next one 10 January).

The Discord is open to anyone that wants to get involved to ‘do stuff’ for the betterment of steem.

State of the Dapps

The State of the DApps site has now just opened an account on Steem…

The Excel Club STEEM Business Plan

Steemcommunity witness @paulag has posted the Steem Business Plan for her online training business The Excel Club.

It is well worth a read…

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 26 December 2018

 

Boxing Day has been boxed up for another year, so now’s it back to work.

Much to be done on Steem in all quarters. Much talking, much thinking, much doing.

No big stories today. Steem is just spinning on the spot, but here are a couple of good steemians that are firmly locked in ‘do mode’.

Partiko

When it was announced a couple of weeks ago that Tumblr was turning out the lights for a whole chunk of its creators who made various forms of ‘adult content’ Partiko founder @crypto.talk lept into action and offered an archive home to over 50,000 Tumblr blogs.

Partiko is now starting a trial to onboard those Tumblr users to Steem, by providing free accounts and intial advice on how to get started.

One of the first ex-Tumblr users to make their way to steem is @blackpaint20.

Maybe you could hop over to the intro post and show some voting love to welcome them aboard…

@jackmiller and the SBD story

Australia witness (#41) @jackmiller reckons he might have the answer to the variable SBD value.

Let’s try Steem Backed Dollar Points (SBDP)…

CEX.io – an exchange worth persuading ?

I happened to spot a dialogue on Twitter with exchange Cex.io today.

I sneaked in and asked if they took steem.

After there initial negative answer, I asked if they had any plans to take steem.

They replied…

“Thank you for your suggestion.

We are watching the market closely and in case there is a demand for this particular cryptocurrency we will consider adding it.”

I can’t imagine we are going to get lucky a second time but it might be worth a try.

Maybe we could start a gentle little campaign on Twitter to drip feed pro-steem messages to Cex.io

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 25 December 2018

 

Happy Christmas, happy festive season, or happy whatever applies in your neck of the woods.

No presents from Santa for the steem price, But hey-ho, that’s crypto.

Not so much going on on Steem today, but just enough to catch the eye, and throw in a sneaky double-take if the wind is blowing in the right direction.

@SteemPassport

@ura-soul has been working hard on this project to make the sign-up and onboarding process a whole bunch better.

Password recovery is front and centre in the new proposed signup processes – that makes mega-sense to me.

An Account Incubation process also looks like a smart idea.

@ura-soul’s whole proposed @steempassport procedure hits many nails on many heads.

This proposal definitely look like it should be driven home.

@ura-soul how can we help you make this reality?

@dcommerce v @dstors – it’s make your mind up time

This really seems to have got itself into a big pickle.

The team behind @dstors has split on seemingly less than friendly terms.

Creative differences perhaps.

A battle for the hearts and minds… and delegations is ensuing.

There are plenty of posts (see below) from both sides bouncing back and forth.

Take a read and see what you think.

It’s black and white and read all over.

SOS Forums – to committee or not to committee, that is the question

During the second State of Steem Forum last Thursday, Matt @starkerz tasked me with putting out a post outlining a possible way forward for some form of committee structure…

@impactn has posted a very good follow-up to my post. He proposes Circles of Engagement. A very interesting idea.

Take a read, post a comment, join in the discussion…

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 24 December 2018

 

Oh dear, that didn’t last long.

Steem has dropped back down to $0.28, and slid down the CoinMarketCap.com rankings to #53.

That will make the Steem Santa sad.

DApps & Apps

At least the Steem DApps and Apps keep going up in the number. Two more I have spotted today are @steemblr and @travelfeed – posts below.

The Steem DApps are putting in a good showing over at The State of the Dapps. There is still time to register your votes there…

There are several posts below that give more guidance on this.

Coinbase

It really would up the Steem game if we can get listed on Coinbase.

@hungrypb (@hungryhustle) is making a push via Twitter to get the attention of @coinbase…

If you are on Twitter hop over and lend a hand.

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 23 December 2018

 

Keep positive Steem!

Steem has just about managed to maintain the momentum it built up yesterday.

Down a couple of places in CoinMarketCap.com, but the price is a fraction higher and the Market Cap is over $100 million.

@lukestokes’s Exchange Transfer Report for the first time in a while shows more money coming in to Steem than going out.

Partiko on Product Hunt…

Partiko was making a great showing on Product Hunt reaching second position.

Gaming…

Gaming is definitely on the up on Steem.

Tournaments are starting on Steem Monsters, and it seems that tokens are now only a week or so away.

And @grid9games is about to launch a new  multiplayer crafting / harvesting based town building game on the Steem platform. Alpha testing starts on 2 January…

State of Steem Forums – do we need committees…

Tasked by @starkerz of @oracle-d at the last SOS Forum I have put out an initial ‘sounding post’ to gauge views on whether we need to establish a number of committees to take forward plans to improve Steem.

If you are into committees and all that jazz take a look and let me know what you think…

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 22 December 2018

 

Steem is on the up.

The green days are back and life is groovy…

Steem has increased to US$0.33 and climbed its way back into the Top 50 of CoinMarketCap.com at number 48.

The excellent coverage in Yahoo Finance and the surge in community activity must be playing a big part in this.

Open Letter to Ned…

The minimalist communications from Steemit Inc and the invisibility of Ned over the last couple of weeks or so has not helped the situation.

More so it has undermined belief in Ned and Steemit Inc.

@therealwolf has published an open letter to Ned…

So far there has been no response from @Ned or Steemit Inc.

Community Action – Doing your bit…

There are a number of easy tasks everyone can do to help boost Steem’s profile in the outside world. Voting and the like.

I’ve brought them together into a quick read summary…

Let me know if you do all five – there might be a little reward 😃

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 21 December 2018

 

Lights, camera, action…

The talking has started and its going well.

In case you missed the recording of the second State of Steem forum is now available.

This one focussed on Steem Technology and covered topics such as nodes, RocksDB, SMTs, RC Delegation Pools, Account creation. It also explored the decision making mechanisms to move development forward as Steemit Inc pulls back.

The speakers on the forum included @blocktrades, @crypto.talk, @helo, @knowledges, @shredz7, @someguy123, @starkerz, @themarkymark, @therealwolf, @upheaver, @ura-soul and @yabapmatt.

So give the forum a listen if you want to keep up to speed with what is going on…

There are six more State of Steem Forums to come – resuming on Thursday 10 January when the focus will be DApps, Apps & Developments. If you would like to be involved in that one please message me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

Now comes the action…

Community Action Point #1 : How should the STEEM blockchain development be funded? (dpoll)

One of the points discussed in the SoS Forum on Thursday was how steem blockchain developments should be funded.

Witness @helo has put up a very useful dpoll to gauge opinion on this. Take a look, place your vote and do your bit for steemocracy…

Community Action Point #2 : Submit your proposals

Another point that came out of the SoS Forum was whether we need a mechanism or central place for gathering steem development and advancement proposals in one place.

Very handily @therealwolf has jumped on it and set up a ‘repository’ for people to submit their ideas and proposals.

Check out the proposals that are already there and vote up the ones you think most important / urgent.

Community Action Point #3 : The State of the DApps

Yesterday, as an Action Point from the State of the Steem Forum, I mentioned the idea of pushing the Steem DApps on The State of the DApps site.

This has now been picked up further.

@esteemapp put out the first post asking for community help to push them up the rankings. You can use their step by step guide to support esteem… or any other of the Steem DApps for that matter 😃

@taskmaster4450 has put out a similar call to give a boost to @actifit…

  • Taking Action To Help Steem: Let’s Blitz @actifit

And to put some icing on the Call To Action Cake @oracle-d is offering a chance to win upvotes for supporting Steem Dapps on The State of the Dapps site

Community Action Point #4 : The Crypto Influencers Award 2019

And as a quick bonus check this Call To Action as well…

Homesteaders Coop, let’s talk soap…

The Homesteaders Co-op is really moving up a gear. Expanding payment options, new vendors coming on regularly.

Now they are looking for soap vendors. Do you know anyone who makes soap? In the USA?  You could win 10 SBI…

And finally…

A big shout-out to @soyrosa and @therealwolf, with handsome support from @oracle-d, for the most excellent achievement of getting Steem listed on the StateoftheDapps site this week.

This has now been picked up and recognised with a very good article in Yahoo Finance. Maybe that helped Steem move up two places on CoinMarketCap.

Community power!!!
