SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 30 December 2018

in steem •  24 days ago

What a jolly quiet Sunday.

Only one sleep to go til it's Monday, and then another one and it's 2019.

Really not much to report on except for a couple of engines...


Engine by @shredz7

I'm not a techy devvy so this one is arriving on the wrong platform for me.

But it looks Smart and it looks like it might be heading in the right direction...

Steem doesn't have enough blockchain developers...

Yet we are in a more important time than ever to be increasing Steem's feature set and improving the platform's quality as a whole. Right now it doesn't seem to be possible, or at least is not happening, for outside blockchain developer volunteers to collaborate with Stemmit Inc on building more features and improving the blockchain as a whole.

Engine is a DApp running on Steem using steem-state (currently in testnet) which means that it runs on top of the Steem blockchain without actually being directly coded into it. Engine's goal is to increase the agility and collaboration in developing more features for Steem.

I await more comment on this.


Duplo Engine by @roelandp

Meanwhile top witness and SteemFest Impressario @roelandp has managed to hook up the Duplo Steam Train he bought his son for Christmas to the Steem Blockchain.

Choo, choo...


State of Steem Discord - First Report by @impactn

The State of Steem Discord is building up a head of steem, and the discussions are beginning to flow well.

Yesterday we mentioned we are looking for voluntary 'Reporters' to monitor the discussions in each of the Working Group channels and compile brief weekly summaries.

Today we have the first report post from the Discord. Thank you @impactn.

Thanks Paula. I take a low key approach to New Years Eve.

My children are disappearing back to university now, so will be very quiet here next week.

A couple of days late but happy new year!

It's good to see the Alexa rank climb again after a long fall. Steemit was in the top 1000 at one point.

Hi Steve,

I've included Alexa rank just another little 'state of the nation' indicator.

Hopefully we can start inching upwards again.
