SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 20 December 2018

So that was the State of Steem Forum #2 in the bag. Six more to come, resuming in the new year with #3 DApps, Apps & Developments on 10 January.

Today’s theme was Steem Technology covering topics such as nodes, RocksDB, SMTs, RC Delegation Pools, Account creation. We also spent some time exploring the decision making mechanisms to move development forward as Steemit Inc pulls back.

We had an excellent group of committed and well informed guests speaking on the forum including @blocktrades, @crypto.talk, @helo, @knowledges, @shredz7, @someguy123, @starkerz, @themarkymark, @therealwolf, @upheaver, @ura-soul and @yabapmatt.

Some great ideas are starting to come out of the SoS Forums. The next step will be finding ways to turning these into action. More on that shortly.

The recording of the forum will be available on Friday. In the meantime you would do well to read this very powerful blog from @therealwolf expanding on his takeaways from the Forum.

Community Action Point : The State of the DApps

One idea for the State of the Steem Forums is that we should put forward a simple Action Point for the Community to do after each forum to help boost Steem.

With the recent addition of Steem to the State of the DApps site, although steemit.com is #1 on the rankings, we are keen to get more steem dapps moving into the Top 10, or even the Top 3…

Conveniently @esteemapp has just put out a 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 😃

Look out for more of this type of Community Action being supported by @oracle-d.

Homesteaders Coop

Just to wrap up this edition of SOS Daily News I am giving a shout out to the Homesteaders Co-op.

This is a real life, already running, steemcommerce system taking steem payments and making sales…

In the meantime…

Read. Absorb. Digest. Discuss. Act. Together.

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 19 December 2018

MIRA is coming, MIRA is coming…

Steemit Inc have just announced that the development work on RocksDB is rocking along and they will be introducing MIRA (Multi Index RocksDB Adapter) to bring the memory requirements down for nodes significantly.

This will apply for API Nodes and Witness Nodes so costs for running both should fall considerably in the next few months.

Community API Nodes here we come…

The State of Steem Forum #2 – Technology

Tomorrow Thursday 8pm -11pm on MSP Waves we have the second State of Steem Forum – this week focusing in on Technology.

We will be looking at Nodes, RocksDB, SMTs, RC Delegation Pools, Account creation etc.

Speaking on the forum so far we have @blocktrades, @crypto.talk, @helo, @starkerz, @themarkymark, @therealwolf, @upheaver, @ura-soul and @yabapmatt. A number of witnesses and developers such as @gtg and @shredz7 will be contributing through text chat.

Alongside the forum I have produced a skeleton action plan to serve as a starting point for discussion…

Patreon, SubscribeStar and Bitbacker.io

You have probably picked up on the Patreon rumpus as many non-mainstream creators have been booted off.

Many of those moved over to the alternative creator funding site SubscribeStar.

That didn’t last long as payment processors such as PayPal and Stripe threatened to pull the plug if SubscribeStar didn’t eject these Alt-Creators.

Crypto-journalist, and @hardfork-series team member, Naomi Brockwell @skycorridors posted a video on this…

New kid on the block Bitbacker.io has come forward as a censorship resistant crypto-alternative for creators. Bitbacker currently takes BTC, BCH, and SmartCash but not yet STEEM.

On my first day on Twitter for umpteen years I spotted Bitbacker announcing their site revamp, and saying Steem is on their short list to add. I added a comment to support Steem and Bitbacker liked it and started following me. In my Twitter naivety I’m taking that as a good sign 😃

If you have a Twitter account maybe hop over to @Bitbacker_io and tell them how good STEEM would be for their platform…

MSP Waves Producer Job

As many of you now I spend a lot of time hosting shows on MSP Waves. It is a great part of the Steem Community to get involved with and support.

There is a now an opportunity to help out at MSP by becoming a Show Producer on @globocop’s Friday night CHAOS Show.

I started my MSP career as co-host on one of @globocop’s shows and he is a great mentor. If you fancy getting involved on the Steem Waves this will be a great place to start…

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 18 December 2018

Lights, camera, action.

Community discussion is now moving on to community action…

First up in the last couple of days we have seen the amazing move to get Steem DApps listed on the State of the DApps site.

But not only did Steem get included on the site but we went straight in at number one on the charts…

This was all due to some great dev work from @therealwolf, a well directed tweet from @soyrosa and some stirling backup from the @oracle-d Twittersquad.

The State of Steem Forums Action Plan


After the successful launch of the State of Steem forums last week, we are now moving on to the forums on specific themes.

This Thursday it is Technology.

These forums must go beyond just being jolly good talking shops. They need to be a catalyst for Community Action.

So alongside each forum I will be producing a skeleton action plan to serve as a starting point to determine what needs to be done and who will be doing it…

What is STEEM’s Brand Story?


As a spinoff from her Steemwaves Saturday show on MSP Waves @crimsonclad has put out a fun challenge for people to come up with ideas for what should represent the Steem brand.

There is a t-shirt, STEEM and upvotes to be won. Check out @crimsonclad’s DTube for all the details…

SteemCommerce On The Rise

There is definitely a rise in activity in projects focusing on the use of STEEM/SBD in ecommerce or dcommerce.

@dstors is gaining momentum.

@sagescrub of the @homesteaderscoop is teaming up with @graylan and @techcoderx to further develop the WooCommerce Steem Payment Gateway.

The @rutablockchain Steem Merchants project in Venezuela is getting into gear.

New projects like @paytomat are popping up almost daily.

These are all strengthening the use-case for STEEM.

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 17 December 2018


The big news today… Steemit Inc has spoken.

Steemit Inc has issued an update statement. I will leave you to judge – it is not a long read…

The length of the update is rather being dwarfed by the growing number of comments. One comment from @smooth (witness#7) stands out…

I can’t speak for 20 witnesses. I have little doubt there will continue to be witnesses willing to sign blocks even if not necessarily all of the current ones. The list has changed over time anyway.

I know for the first time in 2.5 years (to my knowledge), some people have been seriously talking about a fork that would lock or erase the ninjamined steemit/founder stake because they are not convinced that Steemit as acting in good faith nor holding up its end of the social contract. It is disturbing that things have gotten so bad that is actually being considered.

It isn’t something I’m in favor of at this point, but frankly Steemit seems to be doing its very best to push people toward that. I guess one might wonder if they have reasons to want it, or are really just THAT incompetent. I’m honestly not sure.

@whatsup has given his response to the fork talk…

I’ve heard the word fork a lot recently also. I think it will just create a larger split.

Not sure I’ve seen a realistic proposal yet.

I think it is clear we should not have any expectation from SteemIt, Inc and move forward as if they are a large stakeholder.

Meanwhile Partiko Acts On Tumblr

Meanwhile Partiko has lept into action to offer a home for tens of thousands of NSFW Tumblr bloggers who have been given the boot under Tumblr’s new ‘modesty rules’.

Stay tuned for more news from Partiko on this.

If you are not up to date with what’s going on at Tumblr let the BBC fill you in…

Alarm Bells Ringing…

Paula G of the @steemcommunity team asks whether Steemit Inc has stopped creating accounts…

Share2Steem In A Pickle

The two leaders of the Share2Steem app have fallen out and gone their separate ways.

There has subsequently been confusion all round. @exyle put out an alert to revoke your Steem Connect settings if you use Share2Steem.

The posts from both camps are down below.

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 16 December 2018

The big news of the day…

Steem has been added to the State of the Dapps site that lists decentralised applications across a number of blockchains.

This is a major win for Steem, and puts the Steem blockchain on the same footing as Ethereum, EOS and POA as a place to build DApps.

This came about through a happy coincidence of @therealwolf releasing his Steem Apps site…

and @soyrosa starting an engagement with the State of the DApps team on Twitter enquiring if they could add Steem.

Matt @starkerz then brought in the @oracle-d Twitterstormers, @therealwolf offered his API to the State of the DApps team and the circle was complete.

A big, big well done to all involved.

The DApps of Steem now need to complete their details on the State of the DApps site. Check out @cryptocurator’s post on what is needed…


And today’s new App, DApp or Dev to check out is @steemsavvy…

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 15 December 2018

The activity meter on Steem is ticking overtime.

Unfortunately I was away on family business but apparently @aggroed’s Steem Witness Panel went great guns. I am sure @aggroed will be putting out the recording soon.

On the Tech & DApp front @therealwolf launched a really useful site showing Steem’s wonderful DApps, Apps and UI’s…

Today’s TMMT (That Made Me Think) Award goes to @starkerz of @oracle-d who has made a very well explained post expanding on his thoughts about how people should put more value into the blockchain than they take out…

The first State of Steem forum yesterday seems to have been well received.

If you would like to take part in that please message me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

On Saturday @aggroed will be holding his monthly Witness Panel on MSP Waves. No details have been released yet of which witnesses will be attending but @aggroed usually fields a strong team.

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 13 December 2018

Now we’re talking…

Last night the first State of Steem Forum took place in MSP Waves.

I hosted the 4.5 hour forum with help from @teamhumble.

It was a record number of ‘guests’ on the forum including @aggroed, @anarcotech, @anomadsoul, @crypto.talk, @exyle, @fredrikaa, @hr1, @imacryptorick, @llfarms, @lukestokes, @nathanmars, @paulag, @project7, @shadowspub, @starkerz, @taskmaster4450, @themarkymark, @therealwolf and @yabapmatt.

It was also a record attendance for any ‘shows’ I have done on MSP Waves – peaking at over 125 steemians.

This was a fantastic demonstration of the ‘potential energy’ in the steem community. The challenge now is to turn that energy into activity.

More on that soon. In the meantime I will be posting the recording of this first SOS Forum in a few hours if you would like to listen.

Next week’s forum on Thursday 20 December will be focusing on Technology – nodes, RocksDB, SMTs etc. If you would like to take part in that please message me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

There was also very good attendance at @shadowspub’s 10th monthly Witness Chat yesterday. Thirteen witnesses joined in. The recording has now been posted in case you would like to listen…

On Saturday @aggroed will be holding his monthly Witness Panel on MSP Waves. No details have been released yet of which witnesses will be attending but @aggroed usually fields a strong team.

There has also been a little word from Steemit Inc – @exyle got a message from @andrarchy…

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 11 December 2018

As Britney would say… Oops he did it again.

Ned was a no-show for his resheduled livestream on Tuesday at 5pm. I guess he is still ill, or busy, or just plain forgot…

Alas none of the remaining staff at Steemit Inc HQ thought it worthwhile to post any sort of apology or excuse for the waiting crowds.

As we would say in Wales, “There’s communication, i’n it…”

Or perhaps they just don’t give…

Despite another rerun of ‘Where’s Neddy?’ Steem and SBD are slithering about around the same price as yesterday. But they do look like they could slip at any moment.

A bit of action on the witness front. Alas @swelker101 and @isaria are taking bow out with the @steemcreative witness on cost grounds. Hopefully not the first of too many for that reason.

And Pedro is relaunching his @prc witness as the new @dsound witness. Good move I say.

@dsound would be a most appropriate home for any witness votes that were previously with @steemcreative. Both are very keen supporters of the Steem music community.

And the token race is hotting up. Hot of on the heels of @fulltimegeek, @shredz7 announced the steem-state token system today.

If any of these community driven alt-tokens gain traction, then Steemit Inc’s SMT offering could end up being the sad chicken that didn’t cross the road in time.

If you want to catch a bit of witness action today @shadowspub is running here Witness Chat in Rambling Radio at 5pm UTC. And on Saturday @aggroed is running his Steem Witness Panel.

In between those two we have the first State of Steem Forum on Thursday 8pm – 11pm UTC on MSP Waves.

The team behind the forums – @pennsif, @llfarms, @paulag, @teamhumble and @imacryptorick – have already managed to bring together a terrific group of steemians to give their views on the current issues.

So far on the guest list we have @aggroed, @anomadsoul, @crypto.talk, @exyle, @fredrikaa, @hr1, @imacryptorick, @llfarms, @nathanmars, @paulag, @shadowspub, @starkerz, @taskmaster4450, @themarkymark, @therealwolf and @yabapmatt.

Taking part in the audience chat we should also have @acidyo, @crimsonclad, @drakos, @gtg and @birdinc from Steemit Inc.

Shout out if you would like to help or join in – everyone is welcome

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 9 December 2018

Sunday, a day of rest…

Rather quiet on the post front… still a few good ones to catch up on.

Steem and SBD fairly stable today in their low down way.

Still rather quiet on the Top 20 front.

But I did discover dclick … so we do have advertising already !

I’ve also been beavering away today with @llfarms, @paulag, @teamhumble and @imacryptorick to bring together the participants for the first of the State of Steem Forums on Thursday.

So far on the guest list we have @crypto.talk of Partiko, @frederikaa of Steempress, @llfarms, @paulag, @themarkymark, @yabapmatt. More to be confirmed shortly.
