SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 1 January 2019

There’s a whole new year ahead.

Which way will the Steem blow in 2019…

For the hardcore steemian I guess our gaze will be on RocksDB, SMT-lites, the DApps, the Apps… and of course the price of STEEM.

For now it’s heads down, shoulders to the wheel, noses to the grindstone and push…

Powering up, powering up, powering up

That’s what we want to hear.

And that’s what @tarazkp’s stats show. More people are powering up in just about all the SP ranges.

These numbers meant that from mid-May to the end of November there were :

– 255 more dolphins in the 5k – 50k range,
– 11 new orcas in the 50-100k range, and
– 25 more in the 100k+ range.

And in December similar figures…

– 52 more dolphins in the 5k – 50k range,
– 11 new orcas in the 50-100k range, and
– 7 more in the 100k+ range.

Upcycling STEEM : 70 delegations of 70 SP for 7 weeks

I have started a little personal blog series, Upcycling STEEM, to explore practical ways I can help grow Steem.

To kick-off, and as a bit of milestoning for reaching 70 rep yesterday, I am offering 70 delegations of 70 SP for 7 weeks to newcomers to the platform to help them overcome the initial Resource Credit limitations.

If you know any new steemians who might find 70 Steem Power useful let me know.

The Generosity of Steem – A Dollar A Day donates US$5000

As one of my other activities on Steem I run a charitable giving project called A Dollar A Day.

This provides a facility for steemians to donate small amounts of SBD or STEEM on a regular basis.

These multiple small donations are then pooled together to make single larger donations each day to carefully selected projects and organisations around the world.

The A Dollar A Day project started in May 2018, and it just yesterday reached its goal of donating US$ 5000 before the end of the year. Thank you everyone who donated…

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 31 December 2018

Happy new year all you jolly steemians.

As might be expected New Year’s Eve has been quite quiet on the steemchain.

I sneaked in one wee milestone by reaching rep 70 – exactly and precisely one year from reaching rep 60. And it was all without the help of surgery or any artificial aids. Chuffed I am.

In amongst the chuff chuffs and choo choos there are three posts worthy of the highlighter pen today…

Where Art Thou, SMT – I hunt you far and wide

Steemhunt can’t wait any longer, and have declared that they will be going with an ERC20 token in lieu of Smart Media Tokens, at least for the timebeing.

Since the 70% layoff of Steemit inc., the specs/plans for SMT project have been changed. First of all, the SMT will be launched as a SMT-lite version which won’t support the PoB (Proof-of-Brain) and DEX features. It may adopt just a simple token issuance and transfer among users. Also, the testnet is scheduled on March 15, 2019, but the target launching date may be flexible according to the past pattern.

I am guessing this may not be the last time we read this story, alas…

Steemhunt have many other exciting plans on the books for 2019 – Reviewhunt, Ideahunt and funding & listing via Exchange Market…

Is Gamification the answer to Steem problems?

Developer, and @wise-team witness partner, @noisy poses this question.

Recently he has spent a lot of time researching gamification. He believes it may hold an answer to Steem’s woes.

But Steem to become a successful Social Network Blockchain… needs to first become a successful social network in the first place. Forget about blockchain and tokens. Steem should be a network which everyone would like to join even if blockchain and tokens would not exist. If we will transform Steem to something like that, then and only then Steem will be able to fully utilize the power of a blockchain.

He concludes…

For exactly this reason I decided to dedicate myself even more to explore the topic of Gamification in relation to Steem, to analyze all problems and potential solutions in this area.

Could this be our Game of Thrones…

Steem Economics 101

Steem Economics are not for the feint hearted. You certainly need your wits about you when you start wading into SBD Debt Ratios, Haircut Rules and Steem Inflation Rates.

@cryptocurator has done a darn good job of turning the intricacies of the techno-jargon into a set of easy to absorb graphs and a couple of dozen paragraphs of well honed, readily understandable text.

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 30 December 2018

What a jolly quiet Sunday.

Only one sleep to go til it’s Monday, and then another one and it’s 2019.

Really not much to report on except for a couple of engines…

Engine by @shredz7

I’m not a techy devvy so this one is arriving on the wrong platform for me.

But it looks Smart and it looks like it might be heading in the right direction…

Steem doesn’t have enough blockchain developers…

Yet we are in a more important time than ever to be increasing Steem’s feature set and improving the platform’s quality as a whole. Right now it doesn’t seem to be possible, or at least is not happening, for outside blockchain developer volunteers to collaborate with Stemmit Inc on building more features and improving the blockchain as a whole.

Engine is a DApp running on Steem using steem-state (currently in testnet) which means that it runs on top of the Steem blockchain without actually being directly coded into it. Engine’s goal is to increase the agility and collaboration in developing more features for Steem.

I await more comment on this.

Duplo Engine by @roelandp

Meanwhile top witness and SteemFest Impressario @roelandp has managed to hook up the Duplo Steam Train he bought his son for Christmas to the Steem Blockchain.

Choo, choo…

State of Steem Discord – First Report by @impactn

The State of Steem Discord is building up a head of steem, and the discussions are beginning to flow well.

Yesterday we mentioned we are looking for voluntary ‘Reporters’ to monitor the discussions in each of the Working Group channels and compile brief weekly summaries.

Today we have the first report post from the Discord. Thank you @impactn.

The upcoming MMORPG game Chibera has pledged its allegiance to the Steem blockchain.

And now they are looking for someone to help write their White Paper…

Gaming in the Steemworld definitely seems to be a booming industry.

HashKings is recruiting too. They are looking for a node.js developer…

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 28 December 2018

Another quiet day on the Steem Ranch.

Not much happening anywhere with many people away on festive breaks.

I am hoping it all bursts into life on Wednesday.

But in the meantime we can all look out for the little glimmers of shiny hope.

Actifit Account Creation Service

@actifit has launched its account sign up service. $10 is not bad for the package on offer. It will be an interesting test case to see how this one goes…

End of Year Reviews

With only a few days left in 2018, the End of Year Reviews are beginning to pop up.

A couple of good ones to check out so far are from @therealwolf and @dsound…

End of Witness @fulltimegeek

Sadly @fulltimegeek has switched off his witness. He was making progress into the 50’s, but still some way to go to hit the home runs.

Let’s hope this frees up time for FTG to push forward with his Vaporchain token development work.

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 27 December 2018

We are in the Twixmas lull now.

All is quiet on the steemit front.

Just a few points of reference for the discerning eye…

State of Steem Discord Server

An open space Discord has been set up to run alongside the remaining six State of Steem Forums (next one 10 January).

The Discord is open to anyone that wants to get involved to ‘do stuff’ for the betterment of steem.

State of the Dapps

The State of the DApps site has now just opened an account on Steem…

The Excel Club STEEM Business Plan

Steemcommunity witness @paulag has posted the Steem Business Plan for her online training business The Excel Club.

It is well worth a read…

SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 26 December 2018

 

Boxing Day has been boxed up for another year, so now’s it back to work.

Much to be done on Steem in all quarters. Much talking, much thinking, much doing.

No big stories today. Steem is just spinning on the spot, but here are a couple of good steemians that are firmly locked in ‘do mode’.

Partiko

When it was announced a couple of weeks ago that Tumblr was turning out the lights for a whole chunk of its creators who made various forms of ‘adult content’ Partiko founder @crypto.talk lept into action and offered an archive home to over 50,000 Tumblr blogs.

Partiko is now starting a trial to onboard those Tumblr users to Steem, by providing free accounts and intial advice on how to get started.

One of the first ex-Tumblr users to make their way to steem is @blackpaint20.

Maybe you could hop over to the intro post and show some voting love to welcome them aboard…

@jackmiller and the SBD story

Australia witness (#41) @jackmiller reckons he might have the answer to the variable SBD value.

Let’s try Steem Backed Dollar Points (SBDP)…

CEX.io – an exchange worth persuading ?

I happened to spot a dialogue on Twitter with exchange Cex.io today.

I sneaked in and asked if they took steem.

After there initial negative answer, I asked if they had any plans to take steem.

They replied…

“Thank you for your suggestion.

We are watching the market closely and in case there is a demand for this particular cryptocurrency we will consider adding it.”

I can’t imagine we are going to get lucky a second time but it might be worth a try.

Maybe we could start a gentle little campaign on Twitter to drip feed pro-steem messages to Cex.io

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 25 December 2018

 

Happy Christmas, happy festive season, or happy whatever applies in your neck of the woods.

No presents from Santa for the steem price, But hey-ho, that’s crypto.

Not so much going on on Steem today, but just enough to catch the eye, and throw in a sneaky double-take if the wind is blowing in the right direction.

@SteemPassport

@ura-soul has been working hard on this project to make the sign-up and onboarding process a whole bunch better.

Password recovery is front and centre in the new proposed signup processes – that makes mega-sense to me.

An Account Incubation process also looks like a smart idea.

@ura-soul’s whole proposed @steempassport procedure hits many nails on many heads.

This proposal definitely look like it should be driven home.

@ura-soul how can we help you make this reality?

@dcommerce v @dstors – it’s make your mind up time

This really seems to have got itself into a big pickle.

The team behind @dstors has split on seemingly less than friendly terms.

Creative differences perhaps.

A battle for the hearts and minds… and delegations is ensuing.

There are plenty of posts (see below) from both sides bouncing back and forth.

Take a read and see what you think.

It’s black and white and read all over.

SOS Forums – to committee or not to committee, that is the question

During the second State of Steem Forum last Thursday, Matt @starkerz tasked me with putting out a post outlining a possible way forward for some form of committee structure…

@impactn has posted a very good follow-up to my post. He proposes Circles of Engagement. A very interesting idea.

Take a read, post a comment, join in the discussion…

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 24 December 2018

 

Oh dear, that didn’t last long.

Steem has dropped back down to $0.28, and slid down the CoinMarketCap.com rankings to #53.

That will make the Steem Santa sad.

DApps & Apps

At least the Steem DApps and Apps keep going up in the number. Two more I have spotted today are @steemblr and @travelfeed – posts below.

The Steem DApps are putting in a good showing over at The State of the Dapps. There is still time to register your votes there…

There are several posts below that give more guidance on this.

Coinbase

It really would up the Steem game if we can get listed on Coinbase.

@hungrypb (@hungryhustle) is making a push via Twitter to get the attention of @coinbase…

If you are on Twitter hop over and lend a hand.

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 23 December 2018

 

Keep positive Steem!

Steem has just about managed to maintain the momentum it built up yesterday.

Down a couple of places in CoinMarketCap.com, but the price is a fraction higher and the Market Cap is over $100 million.

@lukestokes’s Exchange Transfer Report for the first time in a while shows more money coming in to Steem than going out.

Partiko on Product Hunt…

Partiko was making a great showing on Product Hunt reaching second position.

Gaming…

Gaming is definitely on the up on Steem.

Tournaments are starting on Steem Monsters, and it seems that tokens are now only a week or so away.

And @grid9games is about to launch a new  multiplayer crafting / harvesting based town building game on the Steem platform. Alpha testing starts on 2 January…

State of Steem Forums – do we need committees…

Tasked by @starkerz of @oracle-d at the last SOS Forum I have put out an initial ‘sounding post’ to gauge views on whether we need to establish a number of committees to take forward plans to improve Steem.

If you are into committees and all that jazz take a look and let me know what you think…
