1. Steemit Inc rolls out MIRA

>MIRA is a cutting-edge scaling solution that we developed for Steem and stands for Multi Index RocksDB Adapter. It leverages state-of-the-art database technology developed by Facebook to dramatically reduce the cost of running the Steem blockchain by allowing nodes to store almost all necessary data on low cost (commodity) hardware instead of in RAM without degrading performance.

Once MIRA has been released to the public, Steemit Inc’s development team will be shifting their attention to completing the development of the Smart Media Tokens protocol.
