Thank you sir for featuring our promotion activities in the steem news today. We hope it will draw more attention towards promoting the steemit platform.

Thank you for sharing Mr @pennsif 👍

I'm probably speaking as a non-expert, But I think it's good that there are all these people who are hoarding Steem, This shows that the project is alive and is constantly evolving.
