SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 25 December 2018


Happy Christmas, happy festive season, or happy whatever applies in your neck of the woods.

No presents from Santa for the steem price, But hey-ho, that’s crypto.

Not so much going on on Steem today, but just enough to catch the eye, and throw in a sneaky double-take if the wind is blowing in the right direction.


@ura-soul has been working hard on this project to make the sign-up and onboarding process a whole bunch better.

Password recovery is front and centre in the new proposed signup processes – that makes mega-sense to me.

An Account Incubation process also looks like a smart idea.

@ura-soul’s whole proposed @steempassport procedure hits many nails on many heads.

This proposal definitely look like it should be driven home.

@ura-soul how can we help you make this reality?

@dcommerce v @dstors – it’s make your mind up time

This really seems to have got itself into a big pickle.

The team behind @dstors has split on seemingly less than friendly terms.

Creative differences perhaps.

A battle for the hearts and minds… and delegations is ensuing.

There are plenty of posts (see below) from both sides bouncing back and forth.

Take a read and see what you think.

It’s black and white and read all over.

SOS Forums – to committee or not to committee, that is the question

During the second State of Steem Forum last Thursday, Matt @starkerz tasked me with putting out a post outlining a possible way forward for some form of committee structure…

@impactn has posted a very good follow-up to my post. He proposes Circles of Engagement. A very interesting idea.

Take a read, post a comment, join in the discussion…

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

Become part of the Steem (R)Evolution.
