Why I must now Power Down Steem
The future of Steem is uncertain and living expenses now require I power down. I will continue posting and hopefully Steem SMTs will be released at some point. I see Steem going to 10 cents which I said months ago but hoped that SMTs or some kind of changes would be released before that time. The price of Steem is not the only issue but also there isn't a lot of usage growth statistics being released either so we don't know if the Steemit team will be able to monetize without some metrics. If they do monetize things or if the situation for me improves I'll happily end my power down.
