wow that ist awesome guys... i like you

Made a Tutorial for using Steem with OpenBazaar as it is a little different than other altcoins I believe because the "To" and "Memo" fields, lots of screenshots in the How To here

Indeed, I have personally be waiting for this day !

Also bonus cool seeing shapeshiftio have a Steemit blog and post it here instead of something like Medium.

I didnt even realize the significance of me getting my shapeshift updates here instead of twitter until i read that. Steem on!


You are asking users to send steem to a memo instead of actual steem address which is shapeshiftio. This is bound to create confusion and needs to be fixed.

Now if only they they had the option to use Gridcoin. I'd be glad.
