SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 21 December 2018


Lights, camera, action…

The talking has started and its going well.

In case you missed the recording of the second State of Steem forum is now available.

This one focussed on Steem Technology and covered topics such as nodes, RocksDB, SMTs, RC Delegation Pools, Account creation. It also explored the decision making mechanisms to move development forward as Steemit Inc pulls back.

The speakers on the forum included @blocktrades,, @helo, @knowledges, @shredz7, @someguy123, @starkerz, @themarkymark, @therealwolf, @upheaver, @ura-soul and @yabapmatt.

So give the forum a listen if you want to keep up to speed with what is going on…

There are six more State of Steem Forums to come – resuming on Thursday 10 January when the focus will be DApps, Apps & Developments. If you would like to be involved in that one please message me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

Now comes the action…

Community Action Point #1 : How should the STEEM blockchain development be funded? (dpoll)

One of the points discussed in the SoS Forum on Thursday was how steem blockchain developments should be funded.

Witness @helo has put up a very useful dpoll to gauge opinion on this. Take a look, place your vote and do your bit for steemocracy…

Community Action Point #2 : Submit your proposals

Another point that came out of the SoS Forum was whether we need a mechanism or central place for gathering steem development and advancement proposals in one place.

Very handily @therealwolf has jumped on it and set up a ‘repository’ for people to submit their ideas and proposals.

Check out the proposals that are already there and vote up the ones you think most important / urgent.

Community Action Point #3 : The State of the DApps

Yesterday, as an Action Point from the State of the Steem Forum, I mentioned the idea of pushing the Steem DApps on The State of the DApps site.

This has now been picked up further.

@esteemapp put out the first 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 😃

@taskmaster4450 has put out a similar call to give a boost to @actifit…

  • Taking Action To Help Steem: Let’s Blitz @actifit

And to put some icing on the Call To Action Cake @oracle-d is offering a chance to win upvotes for supporting Steem Dapps on The State of the Dapps site

Community Action Point #4 : The Crypto Influencers Award 2019

And as a quick bonus check this Call To Action as well…

Homesteaders Coop, let’s talk soap…

The Homesteaders Co-op is really moving up a gear. Expanding payment options, new vendors coming on regularly.

Now they are looking for soap vendors. Do you know anyone who makes soap? In the USA?  You could win 10 SBI…

And finally…

A big shout-out to @soyrosa and @therealwolf, with handsome support from @oracle-d, for the most excellent achievement of getting Steem listed on the StateoftheDapps site this week.

This has now been picked up and recognised with a very good article in Yahoo Finance. Maybe that helped Steem move up two places on CoinMarketCap.

Community power!!!
