SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 30 December 2018

What a jolly quiet Sunday.

Only one sleep to go til it’s Monday, and then another one and it’s 2019.

Really not much to report on except for a couple of engines…

Engine by @shredz7

I’m not a techy devvy so this one is arriving on the wrong platform for me.

But it looks Smart and it looks like it might be heading in the right direction…

Steem doesn’t have enough blockchain developers…

Yet we are in a more important time than ever to be increasing Steem’s feature set and improving the platform’s quality as a whole. Right now it doesn’t seem to be possible, or at least is not happening, for outside blockchain developer volunteers to collaborate with Stemmit Inc on building more features and improving the blockchain as a whole.

Engine is a DApp running on Steem using steem-state (currently in testnet) which means that it runs on top of the Steem blockchain without actually being directly coded into it. Engine’s goal is to increase the agility and collaboration in developing more features for Steem.

I await more comment on this.

Duplo Engine by @roelandp

Meanwhile top witness and SteemFest Impressario @roelandp has managed to hook up the Duplo Steam Train he bought his son for Christmas to the Steem Blockchain.

Choo, choo…
