I like your simulated steem cost as a percentage))) Thank you for the excellent report

That's my favorite. I think it's the one that best reflects investor confidence in the blockchain.

I wonder why Tron (TRX) has stopped charging. Apparently some indefinable obstacles arose on enrollment.

I think they're working on it

Our apologies for the TRX rewards not currently showing in the wallet.

The Engineering Team are working on fixing this as soon as possible.

There will be no loss of TRX rewards while the fix is being worked on. Once fixed all missed TRX will be added to the wallets. There will be no loss of TRX for anyone.

Thank you very much! I missed these messages!
