As you’ve probably noticed, things are looking quite different on steemit.com. We’ve been working on these changes for some time, and we worked hard to have them polished and deployed in honor of SteemFest.
The new logo and design changes serve multiple functions. The primary motivation is to improve the user interface and user experience of steemit.com. The other important function is to clarify the distinction between Steem and Steemit.
The Steem blockchain supports a whole ecosystem of applications, most of which have been created by independent developers in our community. The Steemit company and Steemit website are a part of this ecosystem, but they are not the entire ecosystem.
The new Steemit logo
Everybody has a story to tell. Maybe it’s a tragic love story. Maybe it’s a world changing idea. Probably, it’s a meme post. No matter what, your voice is worth something.
Steemit gives people a powerful voice. We help them tell and spread their stories by providing an economic system with incentives that reward valuable contributions. Our new logo is a nod to the community, the conversations, and the powerful voices we aim to amplify.

The new night mode
Today, we're also excited to introduce a new dark theme. It's been one of the most requested features and you can access it within the profile menu while logged in.
For now, the darker theme has been applied to a few of the major pages. We'll be applying this theme throughout the site in the coming weeks.
Stay tuned for more updates.
