The countdown is now prominently featured on CoinGecko's Front Page!


The first thing visitors will see is a countdown to Steem hard fork

With millions of dedicated users coming to our website for the sole purpose of keeping updated or researching the cryptocurrency market, we are confident that this countdown will get some of our users interested in learning more about Steem Hard Fork.

Approaching Hard Fork 21

As a Steem User, you do not need to do anything during Steem hard fork 21. Do expect some changes and be prepared for the possibility that some Steem Dapps may experience issues during the transition to Hard Fork 21.

As a Steem Stakeholder and trader, trading of Steem on Exchanges should largely be unaffected. That being said, we will monitor for any possibility and put up a notice on CoinGecko's Steem Page if the worst were to happen.

Make sure that the witnesses you've voted have already upgraded to Witness Node Version 0.21.0 by the time the Hard Fork occur.

(We are currently replaying our witness node as you are reading this, hold tight as we upgrade to Version 0.21.0 real soon!)

CoinGecko as a Witness on Steem

We are proud to be an active participant and witness on Steem over the year. We believe that a platform such as Steem will benefit businesses greatly with interesting token economy.

Moreover, we've seen time and time again how centralized platforms abused their mandate and trust from the users all because alternatives were not an option - something has to change.

We believe that there is a lot more potential for Steem and we would like to play a role as Steem develops further.

You can read more about why we run a witness node on Steem here.

lets roll!

As a Steemian and a member of @coingecko, this is uber great news.

It's hightime Steem has something good to show for the crypto masses and reignite their interest to this blockchain community.

I, for one will be staring at @coingecko's front page to gawk at the countdown as Hard Fork 21 approaches.

I'd also like to reiterate @timcliff's open letter to Steem that though Hard Fork 21 does not solve all the issues of Steem, it is a step in the right direction.

No system is perfect and perfection doesn't exist, only continuous improvements.

To the detractors of the hard fork, i can only tell you to stay on around abit after hard fork 21 to see if #NewSteem really isn't to your liking. Give it some time before you decided to unstake and exit the community, no one can stop you.

Thank you so much for this. This is what I love to see out of Steem Witnesses and why I will continue to vote for the CoinGecko Steem Witness!

Thank you for spreading awareness. This is what I love to see out of Steem Witnesses and why I will continue to vote for the CoinGecko Steem Witness!

I wonder what the price of the steem will be after the hard fork.
