in #steem17 days ago

There's a big Power Up going on with almost 5 million in the past two days.

The Steemit Engagement Challenge moves into the final week of Season 4.

Today's Steem News also includes news and updates about Burning STEEM, two new witnesses, Smiles and Tragedy in Nigeria, Steem Stats, a Recommended Read, and Contests on Steem...

1. A Growing Hunger for Powering Up

The latest stats from @remlaps this week have revealed a significant jump in the amount of STEEM that is powered up.

The past week has again seen a 2.8M (1.75%) increase to 161,657,842 STEEM powered up, equivalent to a value of $35,633,592.

@moecki identified that the big rise was mainly due to a new account @hungry-griffin that is bringing in and powering up a large amount of STEEM. So far @hungry-griffin has brought in 4.75million STEEM in the past two days...

2. Engagement Challenge - Season 4 Week 4

The Steemit Engagement Challenge is still rolling on.

Week 4 of Season 4 has contests about content creation, bread, blogging devices, music, city development, travel and blockchain forks...

3. Burning STEEM

@remlaps has also continued to track the impact of Steemit's burnsteem25 campaign encouraging people to set a 25% beneficiary to @null to reduce the amount of STEEM, which potentially will increase its value.

The total burnt since June is now heading towards 100K SP. At this rate the burning of STEEM could reach 300K in a year...

4. New Witnesses

There has been more activity in the Steem Witness world with two more new witnesses being launched.

@bangla.witness has come out of the Bengali language based Amar Bangla Blog Community, and has the backing of @rme...

@bangla.witness is currently at #48 in the witness rankings.

The other new witness is @jrcornel.wit from long time Steemian @jrcornel.

It is currently placed at #64.

Big power up is Very good news to us...

Good i m new plz support m now

@amarbanglablog Thank you very much and from the bottom of my heart for officially declaring @amarbangaliblog a witness.. #steemit has a status in the Bengali language, proud of being a Bengali. Thanks to founder @rme Dada for establishing my Bengali blog.

regards @steem-for-future

Thank you very much for sharing the updates and thank you for considering the article😊

Greetings and blessings.

The reinforcement made by @hungry-griffin will have a big effect on the value of steem.
The amount of steem strengthened by @hungry-griffin is much greater than the recent blackout issue.

We hope that @hungry-griffin will join a number of existing steem Communities and become a hero for the Community.

Maybe the team behind hungry-griffin will help reinforcing the much needed steem stability. Fingers crossed

This is really new and hot news for a new spirit for us little inflation fighters..

Only power up! :)

Very informative news about steemit sir. @hungry-griffin sir, thank you for a great power up.
