Steemit Inc have released an update on progress on various projects over the past week.

The post covers developments on the Condenser / Wallet split, on RocksDB / MIRA and on further cost reductions…


DTube Fundraising’s Experience

The DTube team has spent the last few months investigating various fundraising options to move towards greater financial sustainability.

They have investigated both ICOs and Venture Capital investors, but so far have not moved forward with either of these options.

DTube have also been expanding their team with a number of new recruits over the past few months including @steeminator, @macron, @mercussio, @hetmasteen and @albanlaurent.

They are still looking for more team members…

> * UI / UX: DTube will go through a major redesign of all UIs (web + official mobile apps)
> * Desktop app developer: we need a developer to work on our future desktop app to help creators manage their uploads and increase decentralization of file storage
> * Social networks and community relations: we will claim accounts and need influencers to help us spread the good word and design marketing collateral

The GAME Show – starting next Thursday on MSP Waves

Following the end of series 1 of the State of Steem Forums, @pennsif is launching a new show next Thursday called The GAME Show.

The show will cover games, gaming, gambling, contests, competitions and challenges on Steem.

There will be interviews with game developers and contest creators, discussion, game reviews, updates, tips, tricks and the latest hot news from the Steem gaming world.

And there will be contests and quizzes thrown in for good measure. The GAME tokens will be flowing…

While The GAME Show will focus mainly on games on Steem it will also be celebrating, exploring and publicising some of the many, many contests that are run on the platform. So many ways to win…
