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

In the meantime…

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