SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 11 December 2018

As Britney would say… Oops he did it again.

Ned was a no-show for his resheduled livestream on Tuesday at 5pm. I guess he is still ill, or busy, or just plain forgot…

Alas none of the remaining staff at Steemit Inc HQ thought it worthwhile to post any sort of apology or excuse for the waiting crowds.

As we would say in Wales, “There’s communication, i’n it…”

Or perhaps they just don’t give…

Despite another rerun of ‘Where’s Neddy?’ Steem and SBD are slithering about around the same price as yesterday. But they do look like they could slip at any moment.

A bit of action on the witness front. Alas @swelker101 and @isaria are taking bow out with the @steemcreative witness on cost grounds. Hopefully not the first of too many for that reason.

And Pedro is relaunching his @prc witness as the new @dsound witness. Good move I say.

@dsound would be a most appropriate home for any witness votes that were previously with @steemcreative. Both are very keen supporters of the Steem music community.

And the token race is hotting up. Hot of on the heels of @fulltimegeek, @shredz7 announced the steem-state token system today.

If any of these community driven alt-tokens gain traction, then Steemit Inc’s SMT offering could end up being the sad chicken that didn’t cross the road in time.

If you want to catch a bit of witness action today @shadowspub is running here Witness Chat in Rambling Radio at 5pm UTC. And on Saturday @aggroed is running his Steem Witness Panel.

In between those two we have the first State of Steem Forum on Thursday 8pm – 11pm UTC on MSP Waves.

The team behind the forums – @pennsif, @llfarms, @paulag, @teamhumble and @imacryptorick – have already managed to bring together a terrific group of steemians to give their views on the current issues.

So far on the guest list we have @aggroed, @anomadsoul, @crypto.talk, @exyle, @fredrikaa, @hr1, @imacryptorick, @llfarms, @nathanmars, @paulag, @shadowspub, @starkerz, @taskmaster4450, @themarkymark, @therealwolf and @yabapmatt.

Taking part in the audience chat we should also have @acidyo, @crimsonclad, @drakos, @gtg and @birdinc from Steemit Inc.

Shout out if you would like to help or join in – everyone is welcome

In the meantime…

Read. Absorb. Digest. Discuss. Act. Together.

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 9 December 2018

Sunday, a day of rest…

Rather quiet on the post front… still a few good ones to catch up on.

Steem and SBD fairly stable today in their low down way.

Still rather quiet on the Top 20 front.

But I did discover dclick … so we do have advertising already !

I’ve also been beavering away today with @llfarms, @paulag, @teamhumble and @imacryptorick to bring together the participants for the first of the State of Steem Forums on Thursday.

So far on the guest list we have @crypto.talk of Partiko, @frederikaa of Steempress, @llfarms, @paulag, @themarkymark, @yabapmatt. More to be confirmed shortly.

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 7 December 2018

Another day, another dollar. Well, not quite.

A few goodish things popping up on the blockchain.

Steem has held its ground around $0.25, SBDs crept back up a bit.

@fulltimegeek has announced that he is developing the Vaporchain Token Protocol independent of Steemit Inc. @harpagon and @yabapmatt have been working on something similar as an alternative to the long awaited SMTs.

A rallying call has gone out to the community to join in the campaign to get steem on Coinbase.

But holy moly where are the Top 20 Witnesses when you want to hear from them? Stand up and be counted I say.

On a positive note, that I will repeat again, we had a great second UK Steem Virtual Meetup last night. It was good to roadtest the forum format I am proposing for the weekly SOS Forums. They might just be useful…

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 5 December 2018

The Steem boat sails on, but the waters ahead still look choppy.

Ned has popped out an update on RocksDB and SMTs. Do check that out and make sure you tune in for his latest live stream at 5pm UTC on Thursday.

Still a tremendous silence from the Top 20 Witnesses … hello, hello, do you read me?

Only significant posts from witnesses today have been from @exyle and @prc.

Steem is just clutching on to #50 on CoinMarketCap.

We need to talk… and then do stuff. Pretty darn fast.

To help along the process I have put forward the idea of weekly SOS Forums…

Please bang me on the head and tell me to mind my own business if that really is a dumb idea.
