DrugWars hits the streets of Steem
The latest game to be launched on Steem - DrugWars - has got off to a storming start.
It is capturing the imagination, the attention and the STEEM of steemians far and wide.
The game has attracted over 700 players in the first 48 hours, who between them have spent over 10,000 STEEM on the various upgrade options available ingame.
The game has been developed by @hightouch of FutureShock, who also built the steem crowdfunding platform Fundition.io.
DrugWars is comparable to some pretty old games that you may have played on the web. You can upgrade/add buildings in your city and try to steal the DRUGS of your opponents.
One of the most interesting part of DrugWars is probably the rewarding mechanism, each time a player spend some STEEM in game, the fund goes to the dealer, the dealer put 80% of that amount in the bank pool which is the @drugwars account.
Business Plan competition v2
Top witness @aggroed has relaunched his Business Plan competition, with an increased prize pool of 500 STEEM and 1000 ENG tokens.

Steemwallet's Embeddable Signup Widget
SteemFest organiser, top witness and developer @roelandp has released an Embeddable Signup Widget based on his successful SteemWallet app.
The widget will provide instant Steem account creation to be added on any site.
The widget works by launching a fullscreen overlay to any site where the code is embedded. This launches a foolproof (imho) and straightforward signup process with realtime account validity checking, password validation, optional random password generation and offers a way to download all keys generated, prior to checking out. Then, by submitting card details, the service tries to charge and create the account instantly. Once done, the user has a final chance to save their backup-key file and the account is ready to use.
Steembay revamps and goes open-source
Steem auction site @steembay has been around for over a year.
It is now undergoing a revamp and relaunch...
