SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 4 February 2019

One great big story…

Steemit Inc have halted their full powerdown.

The last topic specific State of Steem Forum on Thursday is all about Steem Commerce.

And a dog called Milo desparately needs help.


Steemit Inc Stops Powerdown

Steemit Inc have halted the full powerdown of 42 million Steempower that they started after the HardFork 21 proposal.

Executive Chair Ned Scott mentioned that he and the Steemit Inc Board were looking at ending the powerdown during an interview on MSP Waves last Thursday.

To the relief of much of the community the brakes have been put on the full powerdown.

Steemit Inc are now just running the much smaller powerdown of approximately 3 million SP for the regular programmatic selling of Steem.

Top witness @aggroed gave an initial response to the news…

Korean steemian @lostmine27 provided further details…

TARC needs help

Tazewell Animal Rescue Center in Virginia, USA has hit hard times and is appealing for emergency funding help from the Steem community.

Founder of the Center and well known Steemian @rhondak gives details in the latest @tarc post of how frozen pipes has caused a major problem.

On top of that resident guardian dog Milo has been badly injured during the course of his duties which leaves the center with the added burden of large veterinary bills.

TARC, Milo and Rhonda would all be extremely grateful for any donations big or small…
