What do you think about the Zuckerberg statement? For those who haven't seen it check it out. Zuckerberg (the creator of Facebook) said that the internet is now centralized and that he wants to decentralize facebook in 2018. Or at least move towards that goal.

I think this is extremely good for steemit and steem, as it will raise awareness about decentralized social media.

KuCoin is the rising star of exchanges after Binance.
BTW, if you buy their coin, you get a share of their profits.

I agree, wish i bought their coin when i seen it at $.53

Decentralizing the centralized Facebook?
How is that possible?
Maybe create a decentralized one and leave Facebook as it is letting it fade away slowly.

Very beautiful items indeed
Good choice, my friend

Thank you very much for the daily news about the Crypto currency. @boxmining

That's a super useful post format Michael, love it.

@boxmining do you think XRP's market cap will drop after these decisions? The crypto market is already so volatile.. What do you think?

Great post! I feel like in college, so much to learn. Thank you for sharing all this information with us :)

Right now Bitcoin looks like it's gonna go up again. In the chart the consolidation phase appears to be ending and some youtubers are also going more bullish.

thank you for your informative post

A decentralized Facebook? Are they trying to copy Steemit but still keep the rewards for themselves? I don't think that's going to work out for them!

Simple but effective overview, thanks!

Must say that I really like your videos. Found you on Youtube first and will now follow you on d.tube instead.

Very stunning objects certainly
good preference, my friend

Thanks for sharing Boxmining
