Building a Profitable Business on Steem

Top 20 witness and Steem Monsters co-founder @aggroed has published a short guide on how to build a profitable business on Steem.

If you have an idea for a new app or dapp read this first…


Steem Monsters Automated Tournaments

Steem Monsters has now built an easy to use automated system for putting on tournaments.

> The tournament system will be open and available for anyone to use. That means that any potential sponsor can come in, setup a tournament in just a few minutes, and get attention on their project in return for a tournament purse. Communities can also use tournaments as a way to reward their members, and causes can even run a tournament with an entry fee as a way to raise funds!

And just for reference there will be at least 20,000 STEEM available in prizes on Steem Monsters during March.


OnePageX.com now exchanges STEEM

OnePageX.com has now added STEEM along with Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin as one of the cryptocurrencies it accepts for exchange to any of 140 other cryptocurrencies.

It has a minimum transaction of around 23 steem, and fees of 0.5%.

There does not appear to be any detail about the company or their location on the OnePageX.com website.


Could dClick be Steem’s secret weapon?

Digital marketer @chekohler puts forward that “dClick Could Be Steem’s Secret Weapon”…


Check out the Webcam at Mean Rooster Farm

If you fancy a bit of country living but can’t leave your desk at the moment tune in to the webcams at Mean Rooster Farm on the Pacific Northwest of the USA.

There are goats, chickens and ducks live and in technicolour across four different webcams.

Coming up in the next few days are an EggHatchingCam and a BabyDuckCam.

SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 14 February 2019

The Steem Alliance Working Group issues the official call for Foundation Structure Proposals.

The State of Steem Forums reach the first of two ‘wrap-up’ forums.

Peer to peer steem exchange Swapsteem fires up, the Steem Business Alliance launches and @themadcurator joins the Steem witnesses ranks.


Call for Foundation Structure Proposals

The Working Group of the Steem Alliance has now issued the official call for Foundation Structure Proposals.

The process of proposal submission / refinement will take place over three 2 week blocks, before the proposals are put to a community vote.

@llfarms and @shadowspub from the Steem Alliance discussed the proposal process during the State of Steem Forum #8 (see below).


State of Steem Forum #8 – The Wrap-Up (part 1)

The State of Steem Forum series on Thursday moved on to the first of two ‘wrap-up’ forums.

Each of these two forums is looking at where we are on 12 key indicator projects for 2019.

This week’s forum covered Hivemind, RocksDB, Smart Media Tokens, Communities, The Steem Alliance & The Steem Foundation, and the Steem Worker Proposal System (now Steem.DAO).

Speakers at the forum were Ned Scott @ned, Michael Vandeberg @vandeberg and Justin @justinw from Steemit Inc, along with developer @inertia, @yabapmatt from Steem-Engine, @shredz7 (Stratos), @jarvie (SteemPeak), @exyle (Blockbrothers witness), @llfarms and @shadowspub from the Steem Alliance Working Group and @starkerz and @fredrikaa representing the new Steem Business Alliance.

The recording of the forum is available for anyone who missed it…

Just prior to the forum Steemit Inc posted another update on progress on cost reductions, MIRA/RocksDB, the Condenser/Wallet split and advertisting…


Swapsteem goes live

Swapsteem is a new peer to peer exchange for the Steem blockchain.

> Swapsteem is a peer to peer exchange for Steem blockchain. We creating a platform for Steem users to enable P2P trading of STEEM/SBD to different Fiat and Crypto Currencies using secure escrow transactions. This post is regarding the new p2p crypto markets we have added at Swapsteem.

Trading with BTC and EOS has now been enabled.

The team has also launched a DPoll asking users “Which Cryptocurrencies should be listed against STEEM and SBD on Swapsteem?”


Steem Business Alliance launches

Conceived at SteemFest 3 the initial members of the Steem Business Alliance (SBA) are @oracle-d, @steempress, @steemhunt, @fundition and @utopian-io.

> The SBA will be an organisation for any registered businesses involved in for-profit, sustainable use of the Steem blockchain. It will be a community driven strategic alliance that shares resources, education and expertise while jointly developing best practise solutions for interested members to adopt. Once a rigid set of practices and a significant resource base is developed, the goal will be to attract new prospective clients and businesses to the Steem blockchain who may benefit from our joint experience.


New witness on the block – @themadcurator

Prolific curator @themadcurator has joined the ranks of Steem witnesses…

SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 13 February 2019

Blocktrades have given an update on the Steem Proposal System.

The Steem Proposal System has become Steem.DAO, and the decision on funding sources has been deferred.

Steem.DAO, and five other major projects, will be discussed by Ned Scott and others in Thursday’s State of Steem Forum.


The Steem Proposal System becomes Steem.DAO, and other updates

Blocktrades who have been commissioned by Steemit Inc to develop the Steem Proposal System have published an update on the project.

The Steem Proposal System has been renamed to Steem.DAO (DAO = Decentralized Autonomous Organization) at the request of Steemit Inc.

A github repository forked from the Steem codebase has been set up for work on the project.

* https://github.com/blocktradesdevs/steem/issues

The decision on where the ongoing funding for the Steem.DAO should come from has been deferred.

> The poll on whether to use an inflationary funding source has been a bit inconclusive so far, and with the available polling tools, I think it will be difficult to reach a solid conclusion on what source to use, even if inflation is the consensus approach to long term funding.

> Therefore, I’m coming to the conclusion that the best thing to do is design the initial system as a pure donation system, then allow proposals to be made within the Steem.DAO itself to decide how to add future funding sources to the DAO’s budget.

> One potential problem with the above idea could be that there wouldn’t be enough funds from donations to fund the proposals to add new funding sources, but I’m assuming Steemit’s initial donation should easily cover any such costs.

@tarazkp and @taskmaster4450 have provided commentary on the latest update…


State of Steem Forum #8 – The Wrap-Up (part 1) – Thursday 8pm – 11pm UTC

The State of Steem Forum series last week reached the end of the topic specific forums.

This Thursday and next there will be two final ‘wrap-up’ forums looking at where we are on 12 key indicator projects for 2019.

This week the forum will be covering Hivemind, RocksDB, Smart Media Tokens, Communities, The Steem Alliance & The Steem Foundation, and the Steem Worker Proposal System (now Steem.DAO).

Speakers at the forum will include Ned Scott @ned, Andrew Levine @andrachy, Michael Vandeberg @vandeberg and Justin @justinw from Steemit Inc, along with @aggroed and @yabapmatt from Steem-Engine, @shredz7 (Stratos), @jarvie (SteemPeak), @llfarms and @shadowspub from the Steem Alliance Working Group and @exyle (Blockbrothers witness).

The forum will be in the PAL/MSP Waves Discord, and on mspwaves.com and Vimm.tv.

SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 11 February 2019

DrugWars has hit the streets of Steem.

@aggroed has relaunched the Business Plan competition.

SteemWallet adds an Embeddable Account Signup Widget.

And Steembay is revamping.


DrugWars hits the streets of Steem

The latest game to be launched on Steem – DrugWars – has got off to a storming start.

It is capturing the imagination, the attention and the STEEM of steemians far and wide.

The game has attracted over 700 players in the first 48 hours, who between them have spent over 10,000 STEEM on the various upgrade options available ingame.

The game has been developed by @hightouch of FutureShock, who also built the steem crowdfunding platform Fundition.io.

DrugWars is comparable to some pretty old games that you may have played on the web. You can upgrade/add buildings in your city and try to steal the DRUGS of your opponents.

One of the most interesting part of DrugWars is probably the rewarding mechanism, each time a player spend some STEEM in game, the fund goes to the dealer, the dealer put 80% of that amount in the bank pool which is the @drugwars account.

Many leading steemians have made positive posts about the game already including @acidyo, @themarkymark and @abh12345 …

Many others have also posted about DrugWars including @emrebeyler, @exyle, @fbslo, @hauptmann, @lordbutterfly and @niallon11.


Business Plan competition v2

Top witness @aggroed has relaunched his Business Plan competition, with an increased prize pool of 500 STEEM and 1000 ENG tokens.

What product/service will you sell?
How will it incorporate a steem-engine token?


Steemwallet’s Embeddable Signup Widget

SteemFest organiser, top witness and developer @roelandp has released an Embeddable Signup Widget based on his successful SteemWallet app.

The widget will provide instant Steem account creation to be added on any site.

The widget works by launching a fullscreen overlay to any site where the code is embedded. This launches a foolproof (imho) and straightforward signup process with realtime account validity checking, password validation, optional random password generation and offers a way to download all keys generated, prior to checking out. Then, by submitting card details, the service tries to charge and create the account instantly. Once done, the user has a final chance to save their backup-key file and the account is ready to use.


Steembay revamps and goes open-source

Steem auction site @steembay has been around for over a year.

It is now undergoing a revamp and relaunch…

SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 10 February 2019

The new Steem-Engine token system continues to progress.

Witness @jackmiller raises the issue about time limits on witness votes.

DPoll introduces stake-weighted voting.

Two Steem meetups are on the calendar in the UK.


Steem-Engine.com – the Vision and Legalities

The new token creation system Steem-Engine, created by @harpagon, @yabapmatt and @aggroed, continues to attract attention and token creators. A DEX for trading the tokens should be available some time this month.

@aggroed has laid out the vision for Steem-Engine.com, and also highlighted some of the legal issues that will need to be considered by those creating tokens…


Should Witness Votes be time limited?

Top 50 witness @jackmiller raises the issue of whether witness votes should have a time limit – perhaps 180 days or 365 days – particularly to account for the fact that people die.


dPoll adds Stake based voting option

DPoll developer @emrebeyler has now added a much requested feature to view DPoll voting results ranked by stake weighting (ie Steempower)…

As an example it is interesting to see how the results of the poll by @theycallmedan would have changed with stake weighted voting…

versus non-stake weighted voting…


Two UK meetups coming up

The UK has now got not one, but two Steem Meetups coming up.

First in the diary is another of the regular London meetups organised by @redrica.

The meetup will be at the same venue as last time – the Canteen at Whole Foods Market in Kensington – on Wednesday 27 February.

If you are in or around London at the end of the month do make an effort to get along and join @adetorrent, @ultravioletmag, @teodora, @steevc, @dougalporteous, @susanlo, @ezzy, @rea, @redrica and others at the meetup.

Then in April @lloyddavis and @shanibeer are putting on the second @SteemCampUK event in Leicester in the East Midlands.

The event takes place on Saturday 6 April at the Phoenix in Leicester city centre. Tickets are £10 or 15 SBD.

SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 9 February 2019

The Steem Alliance Working Group is holding a Q & A session on Sunday.

Buildteam is looking for alpha testers for the new TokenBB forum system.

Utopian is looking for ideas in its IdeaHub.

And First Person Shooters are coming to Steem, aren’t they?


Steem Alliance Town Hall Q & A – Sunday 8pm UTC / 3pm EST

The Steem Alliance Working Group is holding a Town Hall Question & Answer session at 8pm UTC on Sunday in the Steem Alliance Discord.

The first one will be a Q & A style to give the community an update on the progress of the Working Group while also explaining some things and answering questions from the community itself. The goal is to have an open forum where we all can freely discuss topics and ideas with each other in the hopes to come together to do more.


Test the new steem powered forum TokenBB from Buildteam

Buildteam and @cryptoctopus are looking for alpha testers for the new steem powered forum service they are currently developing…

TokenBB (@tokenbb) is a free, remotely hosted, blockchain powered message board (forum) service that helps people create their own online communities. TokenBB comes with a host of capabilities that are not possible on any other Steem applications, namely:

Creating categories
Moving topics to the appropriate category
Removing Spam
Ban/Unban users
Sticky Posts
Forum owner beneficiary rewards
Non-Steem user participation
And much, much more…


IdeaHub

@utopian-io has launched IdeaHub to help bring ideas from the community to reality.

IdeaHub is an initiative, launched by Utopian to help build an even stronger community. IdeaHub is here to help bring to life unique ideas that have the potential to change the world.

Utopian are running a weekly show in their Discord server on Mondays for people to pitch their ideas.


First Person Shooters on Steem ?

@tarazkp asks the question “Is a blockchained and monetized FPS for Steem possible?”…

By good timing a new gaming project War of Decentralization (WoD) answers the question…

We are a small german dev team and about to create a FPS game with a Steem based inventory where you will be able to securely store your valuable loot. A Special feature will be “bounty” were users are able to earn Steem by tactical gaming.

SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 8 February 2019

The discussion around the new Steem Proposal System continues.

The voting on @surfermarly’s 60 Seconds of Steem contest is now open.

The recording of the latest interview with Ned and Elizabeth is now available.

And the Steem Alliance is holding a Q & A session on Sunday.


BlockTrades Steem Proposal System – views sought

Blocktrades are now starting development on the Steem Proposal System (SPS) that Steemit Inc has agreed to fund.

As part of the development process @blocktrades are seeking the views of the community on what model is preferred for the ongoing funding of the proposals…

This purpose of this post is to poll Steemians and get a stake-weighted opinion of two versions of the Steem Proposal System:

A proposal system that only receives funds from donations.
A proposal system that receives funds from donatations and ALSO receives funds by redirecting from existing inflation sources (no new inflation would be added to the system).

Meanwhile witness @exyle raises the question of “Do we actually need a worker proposal system?”…

@gadrian and @theycallmedan have also joined in the discussion…


Interview with Ned and Elizabeth

The recording of Thursday’s interview with Steemit Inc Executive Chair Ned Scott and Managing Director Elizabeth Powell is now available.

The discussion with Ned (@ned) and Elizabeth (@elipowell) covered a range of topics including progress with RocksDB/MIRA developments, Blocktrades and the new Worker Proposal System, the Steem Alliance, the Steem Wallet bifurcation and Steemit Inc’s advertising program.


60 Seconds of Steem promo videos – it’s time to vote…

@surfermarly’s contest to make a 60 second promotional video has reached the closing date.

The contest received 36 entries from 29 steemians around the world.

Now it is time to vote for the winners…


Updates to @anyx’s full API node

Top 20 witness @anyx has been providing one of the few full API nodes outside of Steemit Inc for several months.

Several significant updates to the system have now been made including Hivemind support…
