in steem •  9 days ago

The discussion around the new Steem Proposal System continues.

The voting on @surfermarly's 60 Seconds of Steem contest is now open.

The recording of the latest interview with Ned and Elizabeth is now available.

And the Steem Alliance is holding a Q & A session on Sunday.



BlockTrades Steem Proposal System - views sought

Blocktrades are now starting development on the Steem Proposal System (SPS) that Steemit Inc has agreed to fund.

As part of the development process @blocktrades are seeking the views of the community on what model is preferred for the ongoing funding of the proposals...

This purpose of this post is to poll Steemians and get a stake-weighted opinion of two versions of the Steem Proposal System:

A proposal system that only receives funds from donations.
A proposal system that receives funds from donatations and ALSO receives funds by redirecting from existing inflation sources (no new inflation would be added to the system).

Meanwhile witness @exyle raises the question of "Do we actually need a worker proposal system?"...

@gadrian and @theycallmedan have also joined in the discussion...



Interview with Ned and Elizabeth

The recording of Thursday's interview with Steemit Inc Executive Chair Ned Scott and Managing Director Elizabeth Powell is now available.

The discussion with Ned (@ned) and Elizabeth (@elipowell) covered a range of topics including progress with RocksDB/MIRA developments, Blocktrades and the new Worker Proposal System, the Steem Alliance, the Steem Wallet bifurcation and Steemit Inc's advertising program.



60 Seconds of Steem promo videos - it's time to vote...

@surfermarly's contest to make a 60 second promotional video has reached the closing date.

The contest received 36 entries from 29 steemians around the world.

Now it is time to vote for the winners...



Updates to @anyx's full API node

Top 20 witness @anyx has been providing one of the few full API nodes outside of Steemit Inc for several months.

Several significant updates to the system have now been made including Hivemind support...
