Shutdown of Streemian.comsteemCreated with Sketch.

in steem •  2 years ago 

Due to lack of time and resources, as well as a growing dissatisfactory about the reliability and availability of the services among customers, we are taking down Streemian, indefinitely.

Until a successor is found that wants to continue this service, all operations and services are halted. The login will be kept available, as well as the Lock/Unlock App, so people can safely remove authorization to post on their behalf from their account.

If you have a capable team, are knowledgeable about the STEEM blockchain, and consider taking over the lead, please contact us at info @

Last but not least, we would like to thank everyone for the support and assistance we've reached throughout the last 2 years. It was a pleasant ride and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Kind regards

I am putting in a moderate downvote here because don't believe that a 'termination of service' post contributes value to Steem, almost by definition. In fact it is an announcement of non-contribution really. If anything it seems to me it ought to have been posted with rewards declined.

I do wish you the best and recognize your contributions over the past two years but still don't like seeing several thousand dollars of Steem's rewards go to this.

EDIT: After seeing comments about how this is being initiated by your own service using customers vote power I will be downvoting a bit more. I just don't see this as adding value.

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

Well, the adding value is that I am either shutting it down for now good, or someone reaches out to me to continue that service. Since putting that message on the frontpage of didn't result in any awareness, I took the whole thing down and posted on the blockchain. But, well, if you prefer it to not be continued at all, then, so be it.

Anyways, I will not be the one continuing this service - not even for free (which it was for over 2 years). Instead, I would rather like to hand it over to someone that knows about Steem and has sees the moral obligations that come with owning posting power of >7000 customers. If you feel I misused my customers voting power, then you may not know that they a) explicitly granted permission to streemian and b) that they have a slider that they could have used to prevent the platform from using their voting power .. that particular feature was implemented over a year ago.

I would rather prefer more people contacting me so I have a choice and can make moral obligations over the STEEM pool an additional requirement. However, that's not up to me but up to the community.

//edit: reading thru the opening post again, i now realize i used an unfavorable headline. The main purpose, as you may have guessed from above, is to raise awareness and find somwone who would like to take over. That said, the headline is plain wrong, at a click-bait. Sorry for that. The desire to hand over the whole platform remains..

@xeroc...Sent you a few emails but did not receive any response.

Please allow a few days of processing time. Fully loaded with work atm .. Sorry for the delay.

Thank you Smooth for downvoting because it looks like a lot of the upvotes are from the automatic checkbox on "support updates" within Streemian although it is checked on my account but did not trigger?

I also appreciate your feedback on my post a month or two ago which helped me to implement the budgets idea without needing any coding changes!

very good reply @jerrybanfield

Damn @jerrybanfield , I was just watching your video on about this project and it shuts down right before I could use it. heh, well, I guess I was late to the party

your welcome dear

uhh as a user of Streemian ... I needed this post. And I don't appreciate you negating my upvote of appreciation. ... taking notes.

how do I delete my account on there @chainsquad?

Thanks @reggaemuffin, that´s what I´ve been looking for as the streemian page unfortunately isn´t as obvious about it showing "upgrade" functions instead.

You could have read the Opening Post, it carries a link to the page that allows you to revoke the posting permission.

That made it super simple. Thanks man.


Edit : go to and put in your username and active key and it will remove the authority

Aah thank you, it's a bit unclear. At first it says upgrade account, but when you put in your name it says "downgrade".

What are the qualifications needed for one to become a successor?

There is need for business planning, backend- and frontend-development as well as server operations.

From the coding POV, you need mostly python (piston, flask), and web development tools like semantic-ui, bower, css, js, etc. The underlying code is far from having any black magic, but you should know what you are doing and should have expertise in running web platforms.

I hope service will work under the leadership of the skilled expert of web platforms.

hmm sure @keks

Thank you,i will refer someone with the above qualifications and expertise.

Gooodjobs mr. vote me @afrizalmulieng


this will affect the operations of steemit ?

No, it won't. It's an entirely independent project.

Sorry to hear this news. I have a small team of SW developers that may want to take over this project and grow it. The server space would be our only obstacle.
Is there a way I could get some additional details? Would be a shame to scrap this project.

sent you an email @chainsquad.

I'm sorry to hear the bad news at this time.

Hopefully a capable team will pull this through.

Save them!

me also!!

I totally agree with your thoughts

me too @rizkydpr

I believe capable hands are here to continue the good work......Nice @instructor2121 you have been an a newbie

Streemian has really been a very active and helpful ...i wish could be of help being a newbie but i believe there are capable hands here

right @kukedan75 i agree with you

are you applying to save them sir please?

If the service and account are sold or otherwise transferred, please be diligent about the terms of using the account. I suspect many people won't proactively remove the @streemian posting authority from their accounts.

This is one of my main concerns before transfering ownership of streemian. Any terms set forth will include something that will make me keep owner permissions for it for at least the next 12 months ..

Good idea, thanks for the response.

Hi @xeroc, I have sent you an email on behalf of @buildteam and @steemvoter, we would like to become the successors of Streemian and have already been proven trusted custodians of community keys, your terms of maintaining owner permissions are favourable, I know you from way back and fully trust you and it might be mutually beneficial having ties to you again.

It's been too long, hit me up a reply when you have a gap.

Reasonable words

It's bad news that affects everyone
Thank you very much for providing this information

Whoa! So sorry to hear about this but I think, like the devs said, it's a necessary shut down.

Thanks for everything!

I totally agree with your thoughts

I just wanna say that I personally downvoted this with utopian because I don't think this post should have got such rewards for announcing a service shutdown that is for sure not a positive outcome. I believe this post would have worked well also with declined payouts.

I hope someone will take charge...
It helped me a lot.

The truth hurts...

Its been a great proving ground for the " bot " curation of steemit posts and Streemian did it perfectly boosting the new and growing platform we all use and love today to where it is now) Thanks for having created this great and important tool of theSteem Economy ))

nooooooooooooooo................why take it down

hmm how many time waiting and back to streemian @chainsquad

Sad, but what has to end has to end. There are a couple of other service providers that need to shut down because they're not handling their business well. I went into a huge discussion with an upvote service provider yesterday who was so rude and arrogant in dealing with complains of his slow and inconsistent service.

sad to hear :(

Hope some one takes up this wonderful project.

what does this mean for us all?

Bad news :/

yapp your right. :(

yea you are right!

A sad day indeed, thanks for everything you did for many. Streemian was one of the first places I was advised to use.

Good luck in your new ventures, hopefully someone will come along and take over the reigns.

thnx u ve done great job

your post @chainsquad is very good and very useful for visitors and readers ... continue to work

thank you for the info

Sorry to hear this bad news. Wish I had come across steemit before a month ago, there's just so much going on wth steemit, I overlooked this service. Hopefully a successor will be found, or come forth.

Whats the master plan?

Are you serious???

Is it possible that this magnificent steemit can be like this, the whole world knows what is steemit and is liked by many people and people.
We are all looking forward to a quick solution to this problem.
Please enlighten more for this matter so that the steemit fans are not disappointed with this situation.

Tanks for this news @chainsquad

Innovative thoughts ...... yeah but new people need more details knowledge about the STEEM blockchain. and am hoping it would be much better and easier to understand to use without harming others.
thanks for information.

I want to read your articles.Thank you very much.

The perhaps you should actually read the article.

Hi @tubcat, this photo is very funny. XD

That's good initiative for the security concerns

Follow me

Thanks information

sad news but thanks for the info..

I'm sure some alternative would be provided.

Thank you.

I am ready to delegate my 50 SP to you if that helps ! Or maybe powerdown & transfer my Steem to you .

It's not about the money, it is about the time and the resources. I couldn't find a team capable of helping me during the last months.

bad news ....

i will try to learn it, and help you


Sorry to hear. Yours was by far the best curation tool for Steem. It's a huge loss.

I'm sorry, what did these folks even do. What was the purpose?

too bad, an end has come to a good service

a very interesting post. congratulations on your hard work so far, hopefully get a satisfactory result.
