Not so much news to report today after the big Hivemind release yesterday.
Although the STEEM price does seem to be staging something of an upward breakout from its usual BTC coat-tailing.
Maybe the positive buzz of the Hivemind announcement is having an effect…
A New Full Public Node Arrives from @themarkymark
The steem platform is rather short of public nodes. Reliance on the Steemit Inc nodes has been a centralisation issue, and has had a heavy cost impact for Steemit Inc.
Yesterday’s Hivemind release, and its reduction in memory requirements for nodes, is a key part of solving the node shortage problem.
Right on queue, top 30 witness @themarkymark is the first to release a new full public node.
Hopefully there will be more to follow soon.
If you would you like to know more about the current nodes you can check @holger80’s regular Full Node Update posts…
