The Steem News in 10 posts @ 21 April 2019

Steem heads for space with the launch of NextColony.

Satoshi’s Treasure Hunt gets tokenised, DLease streamlines and DrugWars looks to the FUTURE.

And there’s Steem Charters, Token economics and 10,000 Minnows.


1. NextColony final planets sold and game launches

The auction of the final three uranium planets, Drakon, Tellus and Omega, has now ended. All 3 planets went for 10,005 STEEM each to @xx0xx which is an account understood to be owned by @berniesanders.

These final 3 planets sold for more than six times the amount the previous planets fetched.

The new space strategy game launched as soon as the funds were transferred for the final three planets.

The team on Steem hunting Satoshi’s Treasure have issued a token – Satoshi’s Treasure Token (SST) – to encourage people to get involved with the hunt.

Top 20 witness @themarkymark explains why the change is not popular with players…


6. Does Steem need a Charter?

Witness @sorin.cristescu asks the question – does Steem need a Charter?

He cites the example of Médecins Sans Frontières that has had a Charter since 1971.
