SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 10 January 2019

And on a positive note the State of Steem Forums have rolled back into the town…

A large crowd gathered again in MSP Waves on Thursday to hear over a dozen DApp and App developers and founders talking about their plans for the future.

The recording of the forum will be available shortly on @pennsif’s blog for anyone that missed it.


Tech Roundup

Steem DApps hit the back of the net again. This time with a listing on Dapponline.io, as reported by @therealwolf, @project7 and @steemhunt.

Along with the recent additions to State of the Dapps and dapp.com Steem is definitely getting coverage as a place to be for DApp developers.

In his weekly report @penguinpablo asks the question “How much STEEM is stored on the exchanges?

The answer…

People are transferring their STEEM to exchanges like crazy!
They are all selling at the bottom, IMO.

Many have heard of Hivemind. It is the ‘facilitator’ for the much hoped for, and long awaited, Communities development from Steemit Inc.

To explore what it is, and what it might be able to do, @emrebeyler has set up a public Hivemind node


Community Roundup

If you are a writer on Steem you might have come across The Writers Block.

If you haven’t heard about it check it out. Their plans to establish a full-on, real world Steem publishing house are moving on apace…

Despite the efforts of @steemclub-uk Steem activity in the UK is still pretty thin on the ground.

But the crypto winter in Britain is not all dark and dreary. @redrica is sparking a light again next Friday 18 January by organising another London Steem Meetup.

If you are a Steemian in or around the capital do make an extra special effort to head over to Whole Foods Market in Kensington.

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 9 January 2019

What goes up must come down…

Just as this Daily News edition was about to go to press STEEM has taken a red nose dive.

From the heady heights of $0.31 STEEM has slid down, in the space of just 30 minutes, to $0.28 and is still looking at its feet.

Was it the news of @dstors capitulating that caused the run 😉 ?   

I suspect not as the drop is pretty universal across the crypto-sphere.

But never fear, the State of Steem Forums are about to kick off again…

@dstors is d-ceased

Just a month ago @dstors might have been on many people’s ‘Hottest Prospects for 2019’ list.

But then after an acrimonious Christmas Eve split between two halves of the @dstors team it all went pear-shaped.

After some argy-bargy with an account recovery project founders @kaliju and @derangedvisions went one way with the @dstors name, while major project investor @haejin went the other way with a new @dcommerce account name.

A flag waving Battle Royale ensued between the two parties.

Now the @dstors team has thrown in the towel, upped sticks and left the Steem platform.

No-one has come out a winner. Trust has been broken, the brand concept has been seriously damaged.

It remains to be seen how receptive the community will eventually be to last man standing @dcommerce when a working product emerges.

The final score… DStors 0 v DCommerce 1 v Steem -1

State of Steem Forum #3 – Thursday 10 January, 8pm – 11pm UTC, MSP Waves

The State of Steem Forums resume on Thursday after the Festive break.

This third forum is all about DApps, Apps and Developments.

There is an impressive list of participants already lined up including @anomadsoul (@SteemOnboarding), @crypto.talk (@partiko), @disregardfiat (@dlux-io), @dreemsteem (Spunkee Monkee), @fredrikaa (@steempress-io), @hightouch (@fundition / @ongame), @hr1 (@steeveapp), @imacryptorick (Steem Promotion Task Force), @jarvie (@SteemPeak), @paulag (@steemcommunity), @prc (@DSound), @project7 (@Steemhunt), @starkerz (@oracle-d), @thecryptodrive (@buildteam), @therealwolf (@Smartsteem, steemapps.com), @upheaver.

If any developers or founders of DApps or Apps not represented would like to speak on the forum please message me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 8 January 2019

There is a reason why PR companies exist.

Other companies use them to help manage how the media portrays them to the world at large.

Because of the decentralised nature of the Steem world our PR has largely been AWOL.

As far as I can observe Steemit Inc has never employed a PR agency. Or if it has, it has not been a very effective one.

For the Steem community at large we are our own PR agency.

As the DarkOverlord ‘situation’ demonstrates again, without PR we are at the mercy of whatever the media wants to write about us. No comment.

We Need To Talk To Journalists

@daan poses the question “Who’s Been Contacting Journalists About Steem?”.

We need to get out there and talk to journalists.

If we take the stories to the journos we might have a bit more of a say in what is written…

The DarkOverlord Ban Gets A Roasting

The crypto-media are having a field day with Steemit Inc’s blocking of the @thedarkoverlord account from the steemit.com interface.

And on Twitter it’s open season.

With a dash of PR could both sides of the story have been presented?

Meanwhile in the crypto press…

Do We Need A Decentralized Community Regulated Account For A Better Steem?

@soyrosa poses the question “could a decentralized community regulated account be the next step needed towards a better Steem?”

And she has set up a DPoll to vote on the idea.

I am pretty sure the answer is yes.

The how might be less clear cut.

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 7 January 2019

Hooray! Steem is moving up… now no. 49 on CoinMarketCap.com

Let’s hope the good times continue.

It must be because the State of Steem Forums resume this Thursday, 8pm – 11pm UTC on MSP Waves. 😃😁😎😉

DarkOverlord Underdone

Steemit Inc has blocked the account of hacker @thedarkoverlord from appearing on the steemit.com site for breach of their Terms of Service.

The account remains on the blockchain and is visible on other interfaces such as Busy, Partiko, eSteem etc.

Some might leap on this as censorship by Steemit Inc, others might see it as sound business practice.

I guess it is just a demonstration of the resilience of the steem blockchain.

Thanks to witness @isnochys for the initial heads-up on this.

DTube Forum – Barcelona, May 2019

Are you planning on going to the very first DTube Forum in Barcelona in May?

The Forum is free to attend, but it would really help with the planning of the event if you could let the team know if you are going by making a small ‘Symbolic Entry Fee‘ donation via their Fundition campaign.

The event is being organised by @tibfox, @artakush, @hauptmann and @greencross. Feel free to make contact with any of them if you would like more information about the event.

@therealwolf’s 100% Beneficiary Community Experiment

Inspired by @acidyo, witness @therealwolf has decided to donate all his post rewards to a different community or project each week.

He is kicking off the experiment with this week’s rewards going to the new @steemonboarding project run by @anomadsoul and @coruscate.

Nice work @therealwolf.

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 6 January 2019

A very quiet day on Steem…

But still some interesting bits and bobs popping up here and there.

This Thursday sees the return of the State of Steem Forums, 8pm – 11pm UTC on MSP Waves. This will be Forum #3 covering DApps, Apps and Devs.

If you are a founder, developer or help run a DApp or App and would like to speak on the forum let me know.

DLux – the alternative SMT?

This runs off the edge of my technical understanding but @disregardfiat is doing some interesting work with DLux.

@disregardfiat is putting this forward, I believe, as an alternative to Steemit Inc’s long overdue Smart Media Token.

@shredz7 has also put out a useful post on how Engine, his soft consensus system, works.

Both Engine and DLux use @shredz7’s steem-state.

@shredz7 and @disregardfiat will be coming along to this Thursday’s State of Steem Forum if you would like to find out more about their projects.

DTube mark 2?

@vaultec is concerned that DTube only stores videos for around 30 days before deletion.

He is offering an alternative model for DTube called ‘Permanente’.

A fork of DTube has been made to explore and develop this…

It does appear to load way faster than DTube … so I reckon @vaultec must be on to something.

Onwards and upwards for the Homesteaders Co-op

The Homesteaders Co-op founded by @sagescrub is a shining light in the world of SteemCommerce.

It has only been running a couple of months but it is already one of the leading ecommerce sites where you can purchase physical goods for STEEM or SBD.

The site now has 17 vendors across three continents selling over 120 different products.

To broaden the site’s appeal it has now started taking payment in US dollars as well as STEEM and SBD.

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 5 January 2019

Steem can be a very inspiring place…

Steem took a right turn into the commercial world today with adverts now appearing for the first time.

Steem.Ninja got even more ninja.

And Steem took another great step in the world of DApps.

Adverts on Steem

For a few dollars more Steemit Inc has embraced the Good, the Bad and the Ugly world of advertising.

If you are not logged in, you may now start to see random adverts appear around steemit.com…

Steem.Ninja toughens up

The new service from Oracle-D for direct purchase of accounts – Steem.Ninja – has got an upgrade after just a couple of days.

They have increased key security and they have added account recovery.

Steem.Ninja will also shortly be available in two flavours – the standard account for $2 with 15SP of delegation, and a premium version with 70SP – price to be determined.

And some even more ninja news from Steem.Ninja…

Buy Steem/SBD/SP

As we definitely see the demand for it, we are working on creating an extension to our existing account creation services which will allow users to easily buy Steem, SBD, and SP with their credit/debit cards.

That really will be a neat ninja move.

DApp, DApp, DAppity-Do

Yesterday it was announced that Steem has been added to the dapp.com site.

This follows hot on the heels of the addition to the stateofthedapps.com site last week.

Today I spotted that SteemHunt has become the first Steem DApp to be listed on the DAppOnline.com site…

@cryptocurator sums up progress in his latest post, and reminds us that DappRadar.com is the next DApp target site on the list. It is understood that the @therealwolf is already in conversation with them.

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 4 January 2019

The pace is quickening. The momentum is building.

Steem has landed on another DApp site.

The Dark Overlord is turning the spotlight towards us.

And the ads are coming, the ads are coming.

Steem on Dapp.com

@therealwolf has hit another home run.

He and @yabapmatt have been working behind the scenes with dapp.com and now they are the second major external DApp site to start listing Steem DApps.

Go Steem DApps.

Over to you Steem DApp and App owners – make sure you get listed.

The Dark Overlord – putting Steem on the map?

The Dark Overlord is beginning to attract attention.

They hacked some big stuff that may really put the cat amongst the pigeons.

They are too hot to handle for the likes of Twitter, Reddit and PasteBin.

So now they have arrived on Steem.

One way or another this could be a biggie for Steem…

Steem Monsters – be careful who you buy your Boosters from

@pharesim has done a quick PSA to warn people that the contents of Boosters Packs can be discovered BEFORE OPENING.

So there is a temptation for the naughty people to check their Booster Packs before selling and only sell packs with worthless cards.

Only buy from original sources…

And on the subject of gaming…

Chibera kicks off its Kickstarter

Chibera is the first MMORPG on the Steem blockchain.

It has big, big plans…

Chibera already has an ongoing crowdfunding project on Fundition, they are now moving up a gear.

They have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise at least $250,000.

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 3 January 2019

Are these the tiny first signs of a Steem Spring…?

Steemit Inc has spoken not once, not twice, but three times over.

I had a great audience for my special ‘Look Foward to 2019’ show on MSP Waves.

And STEEM is still holding around $0.28 (at least it’s not falling).

Steemit Inc Awakens

Just like buses three posts have come along from Steemit Inc all at once.

They are dipping their toes in the advertising waters.

They are updating the DevPortal.

They are making some API changes.

All good stuff I am sure-ish.

CoinMama and Coinbase – Steem is ready and waiting

Steem needs to get on more exchanges.

@eaglespirit has opened a dialogue with CoinMama.

@jrcornel believes there is an opportunity opening wider for Steem to get on Coinbase.

Let’s go for it…

The Dark Overlord has moved to Steem

The Dark Overlord hacker group @thedarkoverlord, after being banned from Twitter and then Reddit, has just moved to Steem, with the help of @ausbitbank.

The group, known previously for leaking episodes of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, apparently have a massive cache of secret 911 related documents from the US Government and Lloyds of London. They are offering the documents in return for payment in Bitcoin.

This may certainly help turn the spotlight on the censorship resistance of the steem blockchain.

Amazon Mechanical Turk – would that work on Steem?

I have recently come across the Amazon Mechanical Turk.

Could this work on Steem?

Have you ever worked for Amazon Mechanical Turk? If so I would love to hear your experience.

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 2 January 2019

Things are beginning to bounce now on Steem.

Oracle-D have brought in the Ninjas.

SteemOnboarding is revving up its engine, Fundition are inviting us to Tweet about the PatreonPurge.

And @whatsup asks should we create a Development Fund?

Buy an Account from the Steem Ninja

@Oracle-D have stepped up to the plate and released its Steem Ninja Account Creation service.

For US$ 2 you can get an instant account through an easy to use credit card enabled interface.

And the account comes pre-loaded with a 90 day 15 SP delegation to get it going straightaway.

There is also a Referral Program to incentivise users.

SteemOnboarding wants to hear from you

The @steemonboarding project run by @anomadsoul and @coruscate is progressing well.

They are now seeking input as to what should be included in the onboarding videos they are producing.

So far they are covering…

  • What is Crypto?
  • What is Blockchain?
  • What is Steem?
  • What are Steem Dapps?
  • Where Does the Money Come From?
  • Account Security – Passwords and Keys
  • Your Voice is Worth Something
  • Curating Other’s Content : Do’s and Don’ts
  • Engaging With People Through Comments
  • Steem – Finding Your Community and Getting Involved

Anything else you think should be included?

Tweet against the PatreonPurge and win upvotes from Fundition

I am sure you have heard about the recent ‘Patreon Purge’. If you haven’t @truthforce’s recent post will give you a glimpse of it.

Fundition wants you to take to Twitter to make the alternative Steem voice heard.

Fundition upvotes are to be had for those that do.

Should We Create a Development Fund?

@whatsup poses this question. It is a big one and an important one.

In order to move away from our dependence on SteemIt, Inc. It is my opinion we need to have a development fund to pay for and allocate resources to developers or companies like Blocktrades in order to move development forward.

Join in the debate in the comments on @whatsup’s post…

And finally, Gandalf gives a run down on Steem’s 2018

Sorry I missed this post from @gtg a couple of days ago but it is well worth a read to see all that happened on Steem in 2018…

For the hardcore steemian I guess our gaze will be on RocksDB, SMT-lites, the DApps, the Apps… and of course the price of STEEM.

For now it’s heads down, shoulders to the wheel, noses to the grindstone and push…

Powering up, powering up, powering up

That’s what we want to hear.

And that’s what @tarazkp’s stats show. More people are powering up in just about all the SP ranges.

These numbers meant that from mid-May to the end of November there were :

– 255 more dolphins in the 5k – 50k range,
– 11 new orcas in the 50-100k range, and
– 25 more in the 100k+ range.

And in December similar figures…

– 52 more dolphins in the 5k – 50k range,
– 11 new orcas in the 50-100k range, and
– 7 more in the 100k+ range.

Upcycling STEEM : 70 delegations of 70 SP for 7 weeks

I have started a little personal blog series, Upcycling STEEM, to explore practical ways I can help grow Steem.

To kick-off, and as a bit of milestoning for reaching 70 rep yesterday, I am offering 70 delegations of 70 SP for 7 weeks to newcomers to the platform to help them overcome the initial Resource Credit limitations.

If you know any new steemians who might find 70 Steem Power useful let me know.

The Generosity of Steem – A Dollar A Day donates US$5000

As one of my other activities on Steem I run a charitable giving project called A Dollar A Day.

This provides a facility for steemians to donate small amounts of SBD or STEEM on a regular basis.

These multiple small donations are then pooled together to make single larger donations each day to carefully selected projects and organisations around the world.

The A Dollar A Day project started in May 2018, and it just yesterday reached its goal of donating US$ 5000 before the end of the year. Thank you everyone who donated…


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