SOS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 5 January 2019

Steem can be a very inspiring place...

Steem took a right turn into the commercial world today with adverts now appearing for the first time.

Steem.Ninja got even more ninja.

And Steem took another great step in the world of DApps.

Adverts on Steem

For a few dollars more Steemit Inc has embraced the Good, the Bad and the Ugly world of advertising.

Steem.Ninja toughens up

The new service from Oracle-D for direct purchase of accounts - Steem.Ninja - has got an upgrade after just a couple of days.

They have increased key security and they have added account recovery.

Steem.Ninja will also shortly be available in two flavours - the standard account for $2 with 15SP of delegation, and a premium version with 70SP - price to be determined.

And some even more ninja news from Steem.Ninja...

Buy Steem/SBD/SP

As we definitely see the demand for it, we are working on creating an extension to our existing account creation services which will allow users to easily buy Steem, SBD, and SP with their credit/debit cards.

That really will be a neat ninja move.

DApp, DApp, DAppity-Do

Yesterday it was announced that Steem has been added to the site.

This follows hot on the heels of the addition to the site last week.

Today I spotted that SteemHunt has become the first Steem DApp to be listed on the site...

@cryptocurator sums up progress in his latest post, and reminds us that is the next DApp target site on the list. It is understood that the @therealwolf is already in conversation with them.

I hardly need to look at my feed these days! :)

😃 If you spot anyone I'm not picking up let me know.

Thank you.

Remember those glory days, when you were trying your best just to keep up with all the postings?

You had to start thinking 'who can I unfollow?' ....I just don't have enough time!!

haha, yeah. But I also remember in the early days, I would look at every post most days! :) I could work backwards from trending to the newest post during the .07 cents days.

Now, you're just showing your age...

I came here at the.....(quick check at coinmarket...)....$1.20 ish


Yay! thanks for the mention @pennsif best blog post eva!
btw: when is the next SOS ?


Yeah, really appreciate for hunting down my post here in the SOS!
Steem is finally getting the attention [in dapps-listing platforms] it deserves in these last few weeks. Glad, we all are making it happen together.
And yeah, in fact, Saturday, @dappradar dev messaged me, he said there's no ETA yet, but Steem Dapps will be listed anytime soon! So, can't wait to rock Steem all over!!!

Sounds promising re @dappradar. Do let me know if you hear anymore...

Sure, @pennsif!

Good to see all this stuff happening. Thanks for summarising it for us.

The top payouts list by @themarkymark is a little depressing. A few people are getting a huge share of the rewards and boosting their rep by buying votes. Some of them get hardly any actual community support.

It would be interesting to see @themarkymark 's stats run a) without bot voting, and maybe even b) without self-voting.

Not making a judgement on either of those elements, put it would possibly produce a more 'pure' proof-of-brain assessment...

I see both of these strategies as bad for Steem in general. The bigger players should be looking to keep minnows engaged to make it more viable platform than just feeding their own egos/wallets. Most of them are doing okay anyway. We can't ban people from doing those things, but we can encourage more community-minded actions.

I could flag some big accounts, but it wouldn't make much difference and they could wipe me out. The Steem Flag Rewards effort concentrates on trying to persuade smaller fish to change their ways. It works sometimes.

I wonder how a different a platform Steem could be if...

We have to work with what we have unless higher powers decide to fork it again. No system is perfect. It's up to the users what future it has.
