So Steemit INC is still using their stake to control the witness pool.
Although they aren't sockpuppet anymore, they are lackies...nice upgrade.

This seems like the future is promising again. Perhaps, it's time to cancel that power down thing. Just the other day I sold some in cheap price since I got no news about STEEM future. The positive report of today will bring confidence to some stake holders.

It will be interesting to see what comes next.

Hopefully more new announcements soon.

Yes and that would be exciting.

Great Job everyone who stuck around! Thanks for the mention penn, you da man! I will have the Hashkings witness set up in the coming days and will write a witness post thereafter.

I also wanted to mention that I am considering setting up a full node to support the chain.

Thank you Dan.

Let me know when you have the witness post ready and I will include it in the Steem News.

And that's good re the full node.

Thanks for doing these updates!


Keep going this great work, you save us a tremendous time.

Thank you. I am glad you find it useful.

I have put all my cards on Hive now and started the powering down on steem - so a bit too late for me I am afraid :o

as always, appreciate the updates!

Yes, there IS Major movement on #STEEM if you check out the price on #bittrex.

It's UP 15% since this post came out.

Did my post cause the rise 😀

You're widely read and respected, so I'd say its entirely possible you had some degree of causation. Then again, who ever knows what moves markets. :)

Dual-Chain Functionality is something, that may also be considered in other apps. it could be just a configuration to have them on or off. So one can post to both the chains at the same time.

I think that was tried with Whaleshares if I recall. I'm not sure what happened with that.

Very complete information to be updated in today's Steemit. Thanks for sharing, @pennsif. We're Club12!.

Hi there Club 12.

What does Club 12 do on Steem?

I am hoping for @jayplayco @jayplay.witness to see what he can offer for the rejuvenation of steem community.

I don't know @jayplayco that well, but I think he is keen to see Steem grow and prosper.
