SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 18 December 2018

in #steemlast year (edited)

Lights, camera, action.

Community discussion is now moving on to community action...

First up in the last couple of days we have seen the amazing move to get Steem DApps listed on the State of the DApps site.

But not only did Steem get included on the site but we went straight in at number one on the charts...

This was all due to some great dev work from @therealwolf, a well directed tweet from @soyrosa and some stirling backup from the @oracle-d Twittersquad.

The State of Steem Forums Action Plan

After the successful launch of the State of Steem forums last week, we are now moving on to the forums on specific themes.

This Thursday it is Technology.

These forums must go beyond just being jolly good talking shops. They need to be a catalyst for Community Action.

So alongside each forum I will be producing a skeleton action plan to serve as a starting point to determine what needs to be done and who will be doing it...

What is STEEM's Brand Story?

As a spinoff from her Steemwaves Saturday show on MSP Waves @crimsonclad has put out a fun challenge for people to come up with ideas for what should represent the Steem brand.

There is a t-shirt, STEEM and upvotes to be won. Check out @crimsonclad's DTube for all the details...

SteemCommerce On The Rise

There is definitely a rise in activity in projects focusing on the use of STEEM/SBD in ecommerce or dcommerce.

@dstors is gaining momentum.

@sagescrub of the @homesteaderscoop is teaming up with @graylan and @techcoderx to further develop the WooCommerce Steem Payment Gateway.

The @rutablockchain Steem Merchants project in Venezuela is getting into gear.

New projects like @paytomat are popping up almost daily.

These are all strengthening the use-case for STEEM.


In the meantime...

Read. Absorb. Digest. Discuss. Act. Together.

Become part of the Steem (R)Evolution.

Great info. I'm telling people in crypto forums about Steem. I'm amazed how little most people know about it. Hopefully being on State of the DApps will help. I hope @partiko gets on the first page soon.

Spoke the other with a guy who is very active and knowledgeable about everything crypto and realised ... he was not aware of the "reward fund" mechanism in Steem! He thought and assumed the authors got tipped by other community members, like on Yours! "No!" I said "and that makes a WORLD of difference! When I like an article I signal it and THE COMMUNITY values that signal by paying both the author for having written and myself for having discovered the article - it's not a zero-sum game where the money the author makes come from my pocket!"

Yes I think being on the State of the DApps will be a great help.

Thanks for mentioning us!

Thanks for the mention, I hope my post will help newcomers and also those who are new on our Blockchain.

STEEM ON!

Thanks for stepping up and providing these updates big man! Just read about the woocommerce plug-in article and that has lit my eyes up! Going to give that a go later as my EP gets released tomorrow and will post it on my website shop, see how it goes! Sounds exactly what I have been looking for to sell music via crypto!

Thank you for stopping by at my post.

Keep Steem On.

This post is sponsored by @Appreciator. Just keep up the good work.

I love reading those updates! Mainly for the drama - would today there be a different follow up after the "In the mean time..." :D

State of the Dapps used my Steemit screenshot, so it now has a 100% profile score. Doing this for other dapps should improve their rank, as my post said. It is interesting to see how big some of the ethereum betting dapps are. Serious money being moved around.
