Before the forum, there was an hour long discussion with Steemit Inc Executive Chair Ned Scott, Managing Director Elizabeth Powell and lead blockchain developer Michael Vandeberg @vandeberg, along with Dan from @blocktrades.

Ned and Michael gave a full update on the RocksDB developments to reduce witness node memory requirements. This is now entering its final testing phase.
