Hardfork 22 is almost with us...
Steem teams up with Typerium, HUNT is now on Bitberry, and the Steem Proposals are rolling in.
And there is also news from SteemPeak, the Bitcoin is_ Conference, Epic Dice, BROsino, GAIA and some #NewSteem Resolutions.
1. Goodbye Hardfork 21, Hello Hardfork 22
A small issue has been discovered in Hardfork 21 that is preventing delegation from working correctly - especially for large accounts.
This is stopping Steemit Inc from delegating the usual 15SP as part of the account creation process...
Because this is preventing Steemit from creating new Steem accounts, and because we will likely not have the opportunity to hardfork again until the SMT hardfork, we believe that it is best to perform this hardfork as soon as possible. We have spoken with the Witnesses and come to a consensus that the best time to execute this hardfork is 11:00 AM EDT (3pm UTC). Because this is another hardfork it will be named 0.22.0 (or Hardfork 22).
2. Steem Partnership with Typerium announced
A partnership between Steem and Typerium has been announced on the Typerium website...
We’ve partnered with Steem Network, and Steemit, Inc. The Typerium and Steemit projects have a significant degree of overlap, but instead of staying fierce competitors, we have decided to join forces and help build on each other’s strengths. This is great news for both of our communities.
It means that Steemit users will be able to use Typerium’s slick and intuitive creative design software. Typerium supporters also have a lot to gain, because they will be able to publish content straight from the Typerium application to Steemit.
Working together will enhance the visual content on Steemit, making it easy for Typerium users to post their content to new audiences, and helping to facilitate collaboration between users of both platforms.
