The Steem News @ 2 May 2019

Scot and Scotbot SMT-substitutes coming next week.

Goodbye Flags, Hello Downvotes.

There’s news from Allonian Seed and D.tube Forum.

And the new 3speak.online video and streaming platform is launching soon.


1. Scot and Scotbot go live next week

@aggroed has released more details about SCOT, the Smart Contract Organizational token, that will be going live next week.

SCOT is modeled on the SMT protocol and Steemit Inc’s SMT white paper was used as the basis for the design spec.

Along with the Scotbot voting tool developed by @holger80, Scot will allow communities to operate with their own token distribution system.

There will be a fee of 1000 ENG for the Scotbot setup and a monthly charge of 1 ENG per active account per month. (1 ENG is nominally 1 STEEM, but may be available for less on the Steem-Engine.com market).


2. Goodbye Flags, Hello Downvotes

Steemit Inc has now swapped flags to downvotes in another community driven update of the steemit.com front-end.

Also in the update are contributions from @netuoso, @quochuy and @blockchainstudio.


3. Allonian Seed update

@v-entertainment has released an update on the steem-based Allonian Seed game they are developing.

As well as new visuals there have been developments with Steem integration, better support for story writing, event systems and various other improvements.


4. D.tube Forum travel info

The D.tube Forum is now only two weeks away.

The organisers have posted some extra travel information for getting to the event.


5. 3speak.online – new video & streaming platform

3speak.online is a new video and streaming platform for steem developed by @wehmoen and @oracle-d.

The service is particularly targeting content creators deplatformed from other social media sites…

> If you were banned, deplatformed or censored on Facebook, YouTube & Co you can apply for a censorship free content creator account at 3speak.

The test post from @tibfox appears well advanced so it looks like the service will be launching soon.

Even on a quiet day there’s something big going down on Steem.

There’s Niffler.co, SCOT and Token Town.

The Steem News in 10 posts @ 27 April 2019

Pow! Another big day on Steem.

Steem-Engine.com announces SCOTs for tokenizing communities.

Meanwhile there’s news from DruWars, NextColony, DLease and Ureka.org.

And the 50/50 post reward debate rolls on.


1. Steem-Engine.com announces SCOTs

Steem-Engine.com co-founder @aggroed has announced the coming of SCOT – Smart Contract Organizational Token.

The Steem-Engine.com project has now begun live testing of the prototype called Novel Distribution : Smart Contract Organizational Token (ND SCOT).

Pending the arrival of SMTs, SCOT will allow communities to tokenize now…

>You have a community and you’d like to monetize it. You create a token, distribute it, and users stake it. They go to yourcoolwebsite.com where you run something that looks a lot like steemit.com (condenser) or your own custom UI; however, the rewards are in COOL tokens, the users don’t see every steem post out there by default, and you have more control of what’s happening on the site. You’ve created your own custom website, from and for your own community, with your own token, and it distributes similarly to Steem. It trades on steem-engine.com against Steem but you can trade it for BTC, LTC, BCH, and DOGE nor or against ETH/EOS/BTS/Tron in the near future.

The coming of SCOT has got @midlet excited…


2. DrugWars introducing in-game wallets

The DrugWars team have announced that they are working on implementing in-game wallets to store FUTURE tokens.

Battle rewards are also increasing.

The FUTURE token is now being listed on a second exchange – cryptox.pl.


3. NextColony – snippets, tasters and teasers

NextColony fan @art-universe has posted some snippets and tasters of what might be coming soon in Steem’s newest space strategy game…


4. Leasing SteemPower on DLease

@buildteam discuss the benefits of leasing SteemPower on DLease…


5. Integration of Steem into Ureka.org moving closer

Witness developer @ura-soul reports that the integration of Steem into the social network he runs, Ureka.org – Earth Heart Community, is progressing well.


BONUS #1. The 50/50 debate rolls on

The debate about changing to a 50/50 post reward split continues, but @whatsup asks if that really matters?

There are bigger fish to fry…

But if it is wanted then just get it funded and just get it done…
