Another big day for Steem.
The STEEM price continued to climb - peaking at just over US$0.39. SBD was heading back toward dollar parity.
STEEM reached the heady height of #40 at one point on CoinMarketCap.com.
The Steemit Inc powerdown went ahead as planned.
Debate continued and so did the Powerdown
StopThePowerDown was the topic of the day in posts, in comments, on radio shows and in the temporary Steem Reform Discord server set up alongside the Petition.
Steemit Inc CEO Ned Scott even made a brief appearance in the Steem Reform Discord.
Meanwhile the price of STEEM continued its recent upward trend reaching $0.39, with an accompanying climb to a #40 ranking on CoinMarketCap.com.
There were no further statements or open letters from any top 20 witnesses, although @jesta who had just dropped out to #21, posted a detailed account of recent events...
- The recent controversy between Steemit Inc and the community - the premine, control, and where it leads this blockchain
The powerdown went ahead as planned and the first installment of around 2.6 million STEEM appeared in Steemit Inc's @steemit wallet at approximately 3am UTC.
This liquid STEEM was then sent to the Bittrex exchange, some via a secondary @backup-bittrex account.
Following the transfer of the STEEM Steemit Inc cancelled the powerdown.
Peace at last...
Meanwhile @ned and the witnesses continued discussions.
Three hours after the powerdown and Bittrex transfer @thecryptodrive updated the Community Petition...
Latest update: @ned and the witnesses present in the Steemdevs Slack seem to have made peace. We asked if we could set aside our differences and work together to make Steem great and Ned said “Yes, I will”.
I further suggested we all take a breather, have some cold ones and enjoy the rest of our Sundays.
Hopefully the funds that were sent to Bittrex 3 hours earlier will be returned to chain and future power downs stopped.
Since these events took place the price of STEEM has been falling.
At the time of writing (20 Jan '19, 1.23pm UTC) STEEM stands at US$ 0.358, with a drop in the CoinMarketCap.com ranking to #43.
