SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 19 December 2018

MIRA is coming, MIRA is coming…

Steemit Inc have just announced that the development work on RocksDB is rocking along and they will be introducing MIRA (Multi Index RocksDB Adapter) to bring the memory requirements down for nodes significantly.

This will apply for API Nodes and Witness Nodes so costs for running both should fall considerably in the next few months.

Community API Nodes here we come…

The State of Steem Forum #2 – Technology

Tomorrow Thursday 8pm -11pm on MSP Waves we have the second State of Steem Forum – this week focusing in on Technology.

We will be looking at Nodes, RocksDB, SMTs, RC Delegation Pools, Account creation etc.

Speaking on the forum so far we have @blocktrades, @crypto.talk, @helo, @starkerz, @themarkymark, @therealwolf, @upheaver, @ura-soul and @yabapmatt. A number of witnesses and developers such as @gtg and @shredz7 will be contributing through text chat.

Alongside the forum I have produced a skeleton action plan to serve as a starting point for discussion…

Patreon, SubscribeStar and Bitbacker.io

You have probably picked up on the Patreon rumpus as many non-mainstream creators have been booted off.

Many of those moved over to the alternative creator funding site SubscribeStar.

That didn’t last long as payment processors such as PayPal and Stripe threatened to pull the plug if SubscribeStar didn’t eject these Alt-Creators.

Crypto-journalist, and @hardfork-series team member, Naomi Brockwell @skycorridors posted a video on this…

New kid on the block Bitbacker.io has come forward as a censorship resistant crypto-alternative for creators. Bitbacker currently takes BTC, BCH, and SmartCash but not yet STEEM.

On my first day on Twitter for umpteen years I spotted Bitbacker announcing their site revamp, and saying Steem is on their short list to add. I added a comment to support Steem and Bitbacker liked it and started following me. In my Twitter naivety I’m taking that as a good sign 😃

If you have a Twitter account maybe hop over to @Bitbacker_io and tell them how good STEEM would be for their platform…

MSP Waves Producer Job

As many of you now I spend a lot of time hosting shows on MSP Waves. It is a great part of the Steem Community to get involved with and support.

There is a now an opportunity to help out at MSP by becoming a Show Producer on @globocop’s Friday night CHAOS Show.

I started my MSP career as co-host on one of @globocop’s shows and he is a great mentor. If you fancy getting involved on the Steem Waves this will be a great place to start…

In the meantime…

Become part of the Steem (R)Evolution.
