After spending many weeks above 80 million dollars, steemit has 5 consecutive weeks around 61 to 67 million in powered up, and better seasons to come.

What if I was surprised these days was when I saw the price of HIVE was at $ 2.25 although today it is lower at $ 1.65 as users are trusting HIVE more than STEEM. 🙄

The month of December was definitely not a good month for cryptocurrencies, but if for people like me who take advantage of prices, steem and its low price allowed me to make some purchases and POWER UP, I hope that this year the price will increase, I think there is what to expect, this market is highly manipulated, I am a HOLDER, I do not feel panic when I see the prices, I do the opposite, I buy.
I wish you a happy year

It has increased a little than previous week. Power down is the main obstacle to increase the value of steem. Hopefully value of steem is going to increase in this month. Thank you.

Many investors will get a great profit who invested in Steem recently. Investing on steem is better than any other crypto because it give us an extra opportunity of steem power.
Thanks for this deep analysis.

According to the current data, the power cut is usually made by small investors.

There is a mismatch between the Korean community and the Steemit team. They need to work in a coordinated way.

This is the best increase since the beginning of December, I hope we go towards 80M and start to pick up steam again.

It is veryy good to see that unstaking ration is decreasing. That means poeple are now more interested to stay with steemit and steem and stake more steem here on this platform. It will help us and this platform to a great extent.

We start the year with some stability, I hope that crypto winter does not come. Thanks for sharing.

Gracias amigo por mantenernos informados sobre las variaciones en el precio de estas criptomonedas, creo firmemente que steem dara un salto milagroso 😁
