The Steem News @ 21 August 2019

in #steemlast year (edited)

The news today is led by DTube and its token sale, and David Pakman and 3Speak.

Alongside those stories there are items about Metalpay, SteemPeak, SteemWorld and BuildTeam.

Also news from Scotbot, Lago, @steemterminal and @heyhaveyamet.

And there is also a 'save the date' notice for the next Steem Meetup in Aachen.

1. DTube Token Sale starts 6 September

DTube has released more details about its forthcoming DTC token sale.

2. David Pakman joins 3Speak

Internationally syndicated political pundit David Pakman has joined the 3Speak platform run by @starkerz, @theycallmedan and @anarcotech.

David Pakman has been on Steem since September 2017 but to date has just embedded his Youtube videos into his Steem posts.

Today the host of The David Pakman Show has posted, for the first time, a video about gun control that had been demonetized on Youtube on Steem's recently launched free speech video platform 3Speak...

3. Promising prospects for Metalpay and Steem

It rather went unnoticed on Steem but there has been a recent flurry of publicity about the 'Libra Killer' Metalpay project.

Erik Finman, known as the youngest Bitcoin millionaire, is backing the crypto/fiat payment system with his Bitcoin wealth.

This is good for Steem as a couple of months ago Steem teamed up with Metalpay and is now one of the 17 cryptocurrencies that Metalpay tokens (MTL) can be converted into.

@taskmaster4450 explains more about the benefits of the Metalpay / Steem partnership...

There is more about Erik Finman here...

7. New account history api feature for Scotbot

8. New Lago Tribe has landed

Long time Steemians @buttcoins and @neopch have launched a new tribe on Steem-Engine.

More details about the LAGO token and tribe will be coming soon...

9. @steemterminal and @heyhaveyamet seek naming help

Onboarding and mentoring projects @steemterminal and @heyhaveyamet, run by @brittandjosie, @thekittygirl and @xcountytravelers, are seeking input from the community to chose the name for a new Red Fish support account.

They have set up a DPoll to vote on the shortlist - Terminal Support (@wovlou), Steem Guiders (@mrnightmare), and Steem-aid (@wakeupkitty)...

Thanks for the update...

How about— @ReggaeSteem listed on StateOfTheDApps: 😅👍🏽

Cheers !BEER

Thanks for that - I will start tracking @reggaesteem for news and updates.

Has there been a post about them getting on State of the Dapps?

Is ReggaeSteem a Steem-Engine tribe?

Thanks, yeah we’re one of the first Tribes... up and running since first week in July, when there were under 100 tokens or so... we have a list of Steem on-boarding, advertising, artist services (and more) available at

Donald - are you on Discord?

I would be interested to talk with you more about ReggaeSteem.

I am Pennsif#9921 on Discord.

This is all good news. I'm slowly coming back to Steemit following a 2-month absence due to general life events and crises. Very interested in these tribes and communities.
And Steem is going at a bargain price too. Yay!

Fantastic - thanks :)

@sgt-dan shared this post during PYPT, and it is a wonderful, helpful thing! THANK YOU for your hard work in keeping us updated, and thanks for including the info about the SteemTerminal project! 🙌


Thank you @thekittygirl and @sgt-dan. Much appreciated.

You are welcome, but you are much appreciated and deserving of recognition. I remember back in the days of The SteemStar Network when I first met you.

You have been sorely missed. I, along with many others, am happy to see that you are once again becoming more active. You are indeed a very important part of our STEEM Community.

Thank you @sgt-dan. I hope I can play some useful role in helping make Steem grow and prosper for everyone.

I cannot let @thekittygirl outdo me (I am competitive that way, to your advantage. LOL).
