SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 20 December 2018

So that was the State of Steem Forum #2 in the bag. Six more to come, resuming in the new year with #3 DApps, Apps & Developments on 10 January.

Today’s theme was Steem Technology covering topics such as nodes, RocksDB, SMTs, RC Delegation Pools, Account creation. We also spent some time exploring the decision making mechanisms to move development forward as Steemit Inc pulls back.

We had an excellent group of committed and well informed guests speaking on the forum including @blocktrades,, @helo, @knowledges, @shredz7, @someguy123, @starkerz, @themarkymark, @therealwolf, @upheaver, @ura-soul and @yabapmatt.

Some great ideas are starting to come out of the SoS Forums. The next step will be finding ways to turning these into action. More on that shortly.

The recording of the forum will be available on Friday. In the meantime you would do well to read this very powerful blog from @therealwolf expanding on his takeaways from the Forum.

Community Action Point : The State of the DApps

One idea for the State of the Steem Forums is that we should put forward a simple Action Point for the Community to do after each forum to help boost Steem.

With the recent addition of Steem to the State of the DApps site, although is #1 on the rankings, we are keen to get more steem dapps moving into the Top 10, or even the Top 3…

Conveniently @esteemapp has just put out a post asking for community help to push them up the rankings. You can use their step by step guide to support esteem… or any other of the Steem DApps for that matter šŸ˜ƒ

Look out for more of this type of Community Action being supported by @oracle-d.

Homesteaders Coop

Just to wrap up this edition of SOS Daily News I am giving a shout out to the Homesteaders Co-op.

This is a real life, already running, steemcommerce system taking steem payments and making sales…

In the meantime…

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

Become part of the Steem (R)Evolution.
