1. Steemit Inc pause regular selling of STEEM

Big news from Steemit Inc...

As spotted earlier by @steemitqa, Steemit Inc have not needed in September to make their regular monthly programmatic sale of 800,000 STEEM. This is due to increased advertising revenue and decreased operational costs.

Although the sales will resume next month this is very welcome news for the Steem community and will hopefully help relieve the downward pressure on the STEEM price.

Steemit Inc are also happy that the Steem Proposal System (SteemDAO) has got off to a good start with two proposals from @inertia and @steempeak already receiving funding through the system.

Voting for proposals has now been added to

Thanks for the mention. Shame you didn't use my tag.

Sorry I didn't know who you encourage to use your tag, and for what sort of content?

My tag is for general purpose content, so nearly anyone can use it.

I actually didn't know that either. haha
It's silly there isn't a simple field for tribes to give like 10 words describing content type. We actually i think all of these fields should exist

I didn’t know that. Always learning!!

I use it in every single Post. #neoxian .... Hope that's OK. I certainly appreciate all the Upvotes it brings.

Yeah I was trying to investigate about this neoxian but couldn't find a tag or a link to this mistical place I hear so much about? Just found it so maybe I will give it a try?

This is a very good issue!

I'm so glad you are taking the time to do this because there have been many times that I've learned something important through reading the news here and this also keeps me in the loop so I know what people in my Discord communities are talking about LOL

Keep up the good work

and their founder @jaynie

These posts are like "the pulse of Steem"

Nice one. Will do my best to keep it beating...

Thanks for the mention @pennsif looking forward to the meet up on Sunday.
Great to see has stopped selling steem at least for this month.

We have to thank our content creators for saving the day and steem.

Hope the meeting goes well on Sunday, sorry I can't get along.

Excellent post, the news of our ecosystem is fundamental,

Opinians of steemians,

Yeah!!!! Steem Inc. will "STOP DUMPING" Steem sells on our head??!!! (STILL TO BE PROVEN, lets see what the next several weekly candle closes will have to say) also point 8, signup negative zero call to action and in general unengaging, definitely, booooooooorrrrringggg, so many COMPLICATED and EFFICIENT hard forks but we haven't been able as a community to implemented the SIMPLE which can make a DIFFERENCE.

For a particular example> If I want to follow you, I can do that, but the platform makes it wayyyyyyy complicated to add you to my Top List for example and people have to do research and basically waste time just to do that....(really basic user intuitive)(its so 2005's )

Millennials dont have time to do that research, lets be realistic, it complicated enough! jajajaj, you know they just have the seconds to engage and participate...

And the list goes on &on.... it would be awesome to do a huge suggestion box but with data crunch and specific insights, If that really exists here on steemit, wow & didn't know about its existence, "Get the point" , strategic diffusion, powerful call to actions, forward-thinking, engaging and safe is key as many other points.

Lets go to the NEXT LEVEL as a Community, lets kick some ass and show we are changing the world and have a Successful Community Business Model.

Congrats on making the community talk again in a simple ways that all levels of steemian can understand as members, blogers, investors ,etc

P.D. Long time investors, How can I help? or for better words, how can I help to make Steem "Kick Ass"?

Lets be the best

New interfaces like SteemPeak are continually adding new features to make usage easier and more modern.

SteemPeak allows you to add users and tags to a favourites list for easy feed sorting. You don't even have to follow someone to make them a favourite.

You can also create custom lists to add users too (like Twitter lists) and so then you can select a list when viewing your feed, and only posts from the users in your chosen list will show up in your feed.

Lists are similar to favourites - basically they expand on the ways to customise your feed!

SteemPeak also allow you to bookmark posts which has come in handy for me many times.

SteemPeak #1 - before you write suggestions for the suggestion box, give SteemPeak a whirl ;)

I do have a post about it if you're interested :)

Thanks for the update. I guess that’s good news for Steemit, maybe.

Certainly a bit of good news.

Hello Dear, @pennsif
Lots to be said with this post thanks! Any period where STInc doesn’t have to sell Steem to keep things moving is a huge win in my book considering there were layoffs last year. Looking good! Follow Now @timesoffitness

Yep, looking better by the day.

And just like that Steem drops to .15 cents .... So many Contrarians out there. I always buy High.

Hopefully soon the upswing will start...

Such a butthurt you all are, you couldn't resist my 2 or 3 cents downvote? How bad it hurts? you all are moronic hypocrites..who only wants to change other but not yourself..
