SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 7 February 2019

Steemit Inc is making progress on several fronts.

The State of Steem Forums are drawing to a close.

Blocktrades are pressing ahead with the Steem Proposal System.

And another gambling app arrives on Steem.


Steemit Inc engineers continue to make progress

Steemit Inc have released an update on current projects including RocksDB/MIRA and the splitting of the wallet function from the main steemit.com condenser.

They have also reported on continued decreases in the EC2 hosting requirements which are resulting in significant reductions in their monthly AWS bills.

Ned Scott and Elizabeth Powell discussed all these changes in depth during an interview with @pennsif on MSP Waves on Thursday. The recording of that interview will be available shortly.


State of Steem Forum #7 – Steem Commerce

The State of Steem Forum #7 covering Steem Commerce took place on MSP Waves on Thursday.

Contributors to the forum included @aggroed, @danielvehe, @dearw, @disregardfiat, @imacryptorick, @markegiles, @papa-pepper, @sagescrub, @teamhumble, @thecryptodrive and @theycallmedan, as well as @traveller7761 and @globocop.

The recording of the forum is now available…

State of Steem #7 is the last of the scheduled topic forums. Plans are now being made for one or two wrap-up forums. Forum co-ordinator @pennsif is seeking input on what form the final ‘wrap-up’ forum(s) should take…


BlockTrades starts work on the Steem Proposal System

Steemit Inc have now agreed to fund @Blocktrades to develop a Steem Proposal System (SPS) that is similar to Bitshares’ Worker Proposal System.

Approximately $55K USD worth of STEEM will be paid from Steemit to Blocktrades for each month of work. The task is projected to require between 1 and 2 months of work and will include scheduling of a hardfork. Steemit considers this funding to be a part of a larger donation to the SPS and wishes that the Steem community will be actively involved in evaluating the development of this proposal.

Blocktrade’s initial proposal suggested that ongoing proposal funding under the system should be taken from author rewards.

However there has been an alternative suggestion that the funding should only come from donations.

Blocktrades has therefore put out a post to discuss the two alternative approaches…

They have also posted a stake-weighted poll on the two options…


Taking a gamble

Hot on the heels of SteemBet another gambling app has arrived on Steem.

This time it is Janken who are opening with a ‘Rock-Paper-Scissors’ betting game…

@taskmaster4450 adds his commentary on the latest gambling arrivals…

While @tarazkp makes observations on the age restrictions on gambling and the minimum age to get a steem account…

SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 5 February 2019

A new basic income scheme is coming to steem led by top witness @clayop.

A new gambling app is coming to steem under the name SteemBet.

And a new streaming service @steemcast wants to know what you would most like to watch 24 hours a day.

Earn. Bet. Watch.

Steem keeps moving on…


New Steem based Basic Income Scheme for Korea

Top 20 witness @clayop has announced plans for a new Basic Income Scheme based on identify verification.

Initially the project is targeting 15,000 new users in South Korea who in return for verifying their identity when they sign up will receive a guaranteed weekly upvote from the project when they post.

Korea based witness @clayop is committing up to 400,000 SP to the project. @steemhunt, @snackplus and @tasteem are also contributing to the scheme.


SteemBet

With the growing popularity of @magicdice, another similar gambling app is making its way onto the steem platform.

SteemBet has not yet revealed their identity but they claim to have millions of existing users…

SteemBet is the next-generation Steem-based gaming platform. We’re an experience gaming company with millions of users and are working on migrating our games to the Steem platform. We let our users earn SBT (SteemBet Token) while playing games and use part of our profits to buy back SBT on a regular basis.

SteemBet’s first showing on steem will be a dice game similar to @magicdice but they promise more games to come.

You can also check out @taskmaster4450’s commentary on the arrival of SteemBet…


Steemcasting needs your input

@teamhumble and @dayleoo are moving forward with the @steemcasting live streaming project.

They are now asking for input from the community on what sort of content people would most like to see on the proposed 24/7 streaming service.

Give your views in the DPoll survey…

SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 4 February 2019

One great big story…

Steemit Inc have halted their full powerdown.

The last topic specific State of Steem Forum on Thursday is all about Steem Commerce.

And a dog called Milo desparately needs help.


Steemit Inc Stops Powerdown

Steemit Inc have halted the full powerdown of 42 million Steempower that they started after the HardFork 21 proposal.

Executive Chair Ned Scott mentioned that he and the Steemit Inc Board were looking at ending the powerdown during an interview on MSP Waves last Thursday.

To the relief of much of the community the brakes have been put on the full powerdown.

Steemit Inc are now just running the much smaller powerdown of approximately 3 million SP for the regular programmatic selling of Steem.

Top witness @aggroed gave an initial response to the news…

Korean steemian @lostmine27 provided further details…


State of Steem Forum #7 – Thursday 7 February, 8pm – 11pm UTC

The State of Steem Forum #7 on Thursday covers Steem Commerce. The forum will be looking at ways to encourage businesses to take payments in STEEM / SBD, and at the current state of steem in commerce. The forum runs from 8pm – 11pm UTC / 3pm – 6pm EST on MSP Waves.

Contributors on this week’s forum include @artonmysleeve, @danielvehe, @disregardfiat,
@imacryptorick, @jongolson, @nateonsteem, @papa-pepper, @sagescrub, @thecryptodrive,
@theycallmedan, @upheaver and @dearw.


TARC needs help

Tazewell Animal Rescue Center in Virginia, USA has hit hard times and is appealing for emergency funding help from the Steem community.

Founder of the Center and well known Steemian @rhondak gives details in the latest @tarc post of how frozen pipes has caused a major problem.

On top of that resident guardian dog Milo has been badly injured during the course of his duties which leaves the center with the added burden of large veterinary bills.

TARC, Milo and Rhonda would all be extremely grateful for any donations big or small…

SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 3 February 2019

Lots of little bits that piece together to make a typical day on Steem.

Venezuelan project @votovzla has won the 10K Steempower delegation from @theycallmedan.

Long time steemian @teamhumble has put forward a proposal for 24/7 Steemcasting.

And there is a new witness page from @arcange, the beta launch of Spunkee Monkee, and tickets have gone on sale for SteemCamp UK 2.


The 10K SP delegation goes to @votovzla

After a full audit of the @dpoll voting by @emrebeyler, @theycallmedan has announced the winner of the one year 10,000 Steempower delegation to be Venezuelan community project @votovzla.

Ten projects had been shortlisted for the vote, and it had been neck and neck for most of the contest between @votovzla, @SteemitBloggers and @Team-CN.


24/7 Steemcasting is coming to a screen near you

Long time steemians and streaming experts @teamhumble and @dayleeo, have put forward a proposal to build a social media powered TV station based on Steem.

Steemcasting will use the Steem blockchain and the latest streaming technology to provide a facility for 24 hour video streaming that could be pushed out to any number of networks.

The first hurdle for the project is funding for the software and web services required. A Fundition crowdfunding campaign has been launched to help with this…


Spunkee Monkee launches in Beta

The children’s steem DApp @spunkeemonkee created by @dreemsteem has launched in beta…


New Witness Page

Witness and provider of SteemSQL @arcange has launched a new Witness page with a number of new features.

One particularly useful feature of the witness page is the ability to see the ‘Votes History’ of the last 50 votes received by or removed from any witenss.

SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 2 February 2019

Actifit are going from strength to strength.

Steemhouse Publishing gets the proof of their first book.

@platforms might buy your articles.

And if you are interested in submitting a proposal for the Steem Foundation design drop in on @aggroed’s meeting in the PAL/MSP Discord at 6pm UTC on Sunday.


Actifit sponsors world ranking athletes

Actifit is moving forward in leaps and bounds.

Steem’s leading fitness dapp is now sponsoring husband and wife badminton stars Lasitha Menaka @lasitha and Christine Look @christinelook.

Lasitha and Christine are both professional badminton world ranked professionals, who play singles and doubles.

Lasitha is the former #1 Men’s single in Sri Lanka, with a world ranking of 112. Christine previously held world top 150 in world’s women singles.

Last year in the 2018 U.S. Adult Nationals, they placed 4th place in Mixed Doubles. Lasitha placed 3rd in men’s singles.


Proof of first novel arrives at Steemhouse Publishing

Steemhouse Publishing has hit a significant milestone with the arrival of the proof of the first book they are producing – ‘High Kill’ by Diane Ryan…


@platforms launches a ‘Pay to Write’ service

Founded by @steemitqa and @jglake, @platforms is launching a new service where they will pay you directly for articles you write.

The idea is to potentially pay you a flat fee on topics you could potentially write about, or are already writing about. You can consider this “ghostwriting” as the topics will then be posted on the main account @Platforms and my main account as we build out the idea. There is no guarantee we’ll buy your posts! It’s on a first come , first see basis.

SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 1 February 2019

Smart contracts and tokens are rolling into the station with Steem Engine.

Steemhunt is also on the token trail.

The recordings for the State of Steem Forum #6 and for the discussion with Ned Scott, Elizabeth Powell and Michael Vandeberg from Steemit Inc and Dan Notestein from @blocktrades are now available.

An alternative DTube interface is in the works, the new account backlog is now cleared and Spotlight on the Artist wants to shine a brighter spotlight on the artists.


Steem Engine, Tokens & freedomex.io

In another major step forward to bring smart contracts and tokens to the Steem platform developer @harpagon has been working with Steem Monsters founders @yabapmatt and @aggroed to launch Steem Engine…

Steem Engine is a smart contracts side-chain platform for the Steem blockchain. This means that it can execute custom smart contracts based on data published to the Steem blockchain. This allows us to do things that are not currently supported by the Steem blockchain, such as creating custom tokens, or literally anything else achievable with a smart contract.

For a fee of 100 STEEM anyone can now create their own token – no coding required !

Steem Engine is an evolution of the Smart Contracts concepts that developer @harpagon has been working on for some time…

@blockbrothers witness partner @exyle was one of the first to create his own token on Steem Engine with the Exyle token…

@exyle also reports a new fiat/STEEM exchange is being developed called freedomex.io. The website for FreedomEx badges itself as ‘The Smart Media Exchange’.

@exyle mentions that the FreedomEx team are currently working on a partnership with Canada-based Netcoins to provide fiat deposit/withdrawal capability with STEEM/USD, STEEM/CAD and STEEM/EUR.


Steemhunt Tokens

Steemhunt are still on the trail to getting their tokens up and running.

They are now in discussion with Korean exhange Daybit…

As one of its strategic pillars, the Steemhunt team has been discussing how to create the STEEM trading paired market for SMT tokens. These are our goals for an agreement with Daybit:

Listing STEEM and SBD token trades.
Support to list temporary tokens from the SMT candidate projects (such as ERC20 tokens).
Create STEEM-paired market section and swap the temporary ERC20 to SMT tokens.
Support fundraising for SMT projects via IEO (Initial Exchange Offering).


State of Steem Forum #6 & Steemit Inc Interviews Recordings Available

The recording of the State of Steem Forum #6 covering communities, content creation, curation and retention that took place on MSP Waves on Thursday is now available.

Contributors to the forum included @carrieallen (Helpie), @clixmoney (@dcooperation), @enginewitty (The Alliance), @hauptmann (@dtube.forum), @jonyoudyer (Canna-Curate), @shadowspub (Rambling Radio), @shredz7 (Stratos), @starkerz (@oracle-d), @taskmaster4450, @traveller7761 and @teamhumble.

The recording of the discussions with Steemit Inc’s Executive Chair Ned Scott, Managing Director Elizabeth Powell and lead blockchain developer Michael Vandeberg @vandeberg, along with Dan Notestein from @blocktrades is also now available…


New Steem Accounts Report

@steemcommunity witness partner and data expert @paulag has released the latest edition of her regular ‘New Steem Account Reports’.

Her analysis suggests that Steemit Inc has now cleared the backlog of new account setups that had built up in December.

The data also shows, that despite the introduction of account creation tokens in HardFork 20 allowing others to create new accounts, the large majority (c 90%) of accounts are still created by Steemit Inc.


An Alternative Front End for DTube

Developer and DTube enthusiast @vaultec is building an alternative front end for DTube.

The project badged as dtube.network includes provision for permanent storage of dtube videos using a P2P storage network, called ‘permanente’.

dtube.network is starting with a higher beneficiary fee (25%) than dtube (10%) to cover initial costs but it hopes to reduce that in due course.


Spotlight On The Artist

MSP Waves music show Spotlight On The Artist has just clocked up its 25th episode and is now moving up a gear.

The show hosted by leading lights of the Steem music community, @d-vine, @onemedia and @darrenclaxton, has now set up its own account @spotlight.artist and is seeking delegations to help it support the musicians, songwriters, producers and music based projects that guest on the program.

They have already received a 20,000 SP delegation from music supporter @mariusfebruary.

State of Steem Forum #6 – Thursday 31 January

Elizabeth gave an update on progress on advertising and other current activities in Steemit Inc. Ned finished with a brief commentary on the future powerdown plans.

The recordings for both the forum and the discussion with Ned, Elizabeth, Michael and Dan will be posted very shortly.
