Yesterday the Steemit team released a new blogpost here.
The one thing that jumped out was this, a paid signup option for instance access:
For people in the know this was always possible through certain services but it's now also being used by the homepage itself. here.
I'm happy that there is now a fast-track procedure for users that don't want to wait to be verified and want to enjoy the steem blockchain straight away.
The downside of-course is that it's not frictionless.
It's a decent temporary solution until easy-signups are released and I'm glad it's there.
I do expect some influx of new users soon.
Biggers names are joining the blockchain and they have a lot of followers.
Yesterday there was a Polish Streamer @rafonixofficial on Dlive for the first time and 16K people were watching him live according to the 'watching now' counter.
The total view counter is currently: 91,716 here.
To put it into perspective. My view counter for my stream last night is 85.
It makes sense though when you think about the fact we 'only' have a million accounts on the blockchain and some of these streamers and youtubers have 2-5 times that amount in subscribers alone....
They can make some big waves.
I talk about it more in my vlog.
