in #steem3 years ago

The State of Steem Forums are resuming this Thursday after the festive break.

Both forums so far have had well over 100 people in attendance.

There are six more to go, and this week's forum will be focussing on DApps, Apps & Developments.

As well as the tech side we will discussing delegations, business plans, marketing plans and onboarding.

The Forum will take place on the MSP Waves Discord channel between 8pm and 11pm UTC.

After this forum the five remaining forums are...

  • Forum 4 (17 January) : Steem Economics - steem inflation, attracting investors, revenue streams, advertising

  • Forum 5 (24 January) : Marketing, onboarding, PR

  • Forum 6 (31 January) : Communities, content creation, curation, retention

  • Forum 7 (07 February) : SteemCommerce, shopping with steem

  • Forum 8 (14 February) : Pulling it all together, where have we got to, where are we going, how are we going to get there

All are on Thursdays 8pm - 11pm UTC/UK on MSP Waves.

To make the numbers manageable we will be inviting certain DApp/App owners, developers, community leaders and witnesses etc to participate as speaking guests.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join in the discussion through the live chat on the PAL/MSP Discord channel during the forums.

I am keen to make the discussions as inclusive as possible so if anyone would like to come on air for any of the particular forums please do message me in Discord (Pennsif#9921) and we will do our best to include you.
