SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 10 February 2019

in steem •  6 days ago

The new Steem-Engine token system continues to progress.

Witness @jackmiller raises the issue about time limits on witness votes.

DPoll introduces stake-weighted voting.

Two Steem meetups are on the calendar in the UK.



Steem-Engine.com - the Vision and Legalities

The new token creation system Steem-Engine, created by @harpagon, @yabapmatt and @aggroed, continues to attract attention and token creators. A DEX for trading the tokens should be available some time this month.

@aggroed has laid out the vision for Steem-Engine.com, and also highlighted some of the legal issues that will need to be considered by those creating tokens...



Should Witness Votes be time limited?

Top 50 witness @jackmiller raises the issue of whether witness votes should have a time limit - perhaps 180 days or 365 days - particularly to account for the fact that people die.



dPoll adds Stake based voting option

DPoll developer @emrebeyler has now added a much requested feature to view DPoll voting results ranked by stake weighting (ie Steempower)...

As an example it is interesting to see how the results of the poll by @theycallmedan would have changed with stake weighted voting...

versus non-stake weighted voting...



Two UK meetups coming up

The UK has now got not one, but two Steem Meetups coming up.

First in the diary is another of the regular London meetups organised by @redrica.

The meetup will be at the same venue as last time - the Canteen at Whole Foods Market in Kensington - on Wednesday 27 February.

If you are in or around London at the end of the month do make an effort to get along and join @adetorrent, @ultravioletmag, @teodora, @steevc, @dougalporteous, @susanlo, @ezzy, @rea, @redrica and others at the meetup.

Then in April @lloyddavis and @shanibeer are putting on the second @SteemCampUK event in Leicester in the East Midlands.

The event takes place on Saturday 6 April at the Phoenix in Leicester city centre. Tickets are £10 or 15 SBD.

I think witness votes should expire, but we would need an easy way to see which need renewing. There should be more encouragement for people to vote, perhaps some sort of incentive, but I know a witness got attacked for sending Steem to those who supported him.

·

It would be interesting to have a week long reset. The votes would all expire in 7 days and we would all have those same seven days to reset them. There might be big changes if that happened and little people would end up actually making votes since the event would be widely known.

·

Yes the mechanics of how to do it would be key.

I am guessing a Hardfork would be needed...

·
·

Yes. A HF that needs to be approved by the governance of Steem, namely the top20 witnesses.

Thanks for the confirmation Jack.
