What goes up must come down...
Just as this Daily News edition was about to go to press STEEM has taken a red nose dive.
From the heady heights of $0.31 STEEM has slid down, in the space of just 30 minutes, to $0.28 and is still looking at its feet.
Was it the news of @dstors capitulating that caused the run 😉 ?
I suspect not as the drop is pretty universal across the crypto-sphere.
But never fear, the State of Steem Forums are about to kick off again...
Just a month ago @dstors might have been on many people's 'Hottest Prospects for 2019' list.
But then after an acrimonious Christmas Eve split between two halves of the @dstors team it all went pear-shaped.
After some argy-bargy with an account recovery project founders @kaliju and @derangedvisions went one way with the @dstors name, while major project investor @haejin went the other way with a new @dcommerce account name.
A flag waving Battle Royale ensued between the two parties.
Now the @dstors team has thrown in the towel, upped sticks and left the Steem platform.
No-one has come out a winner. Trust has been broken, the brand concept has been seriously damaged.
It remains to be seen how receptive the community will be to last man standing @dcommerce when a working product emerges.
The final score... DStors 0 v DCommerce 1 v Steem -1
