SMT Development Update #6

Hello Steemians, today we have for you the 6th installment of our SMT progress reports.

As we explained in last week’s post, since we work in two-week iterations, it can sometimes appear that work has stalled if you look at a burnup chart in the middle of a sprint. Because of that, we expected this week’s chart to contain a larger than average list of finished work items. As you will see below, that is the case.

SMT Scope added last week:

The blue dots symbolize the number of points that we have completed for SMT development. For those who don’t know, assigning “Story Points” is part of Agile Software Development. They are a “unit of measure for expressing an estimate of the overall effort that will be required to fully implement a product backlog item or any other piece of work” and determined by using a Fibonacci Scale. In addition to these reports, you can follow along on our GitHub project organization and tracking system for SMT development which is (usually) updated daily.

Excellent, good to see the progress. I'm looking forward to seeing the technology match the community spirit that was so evident at Steemfest. I just made a pretty detailed post on issues I see facing Steem and how their solutions might fit into SMT Communities. I'd love to hear anyone's comments on this topic and particularly anyone able to offer any details on how Steem communities might be able to address the issue of bidbots.. E.g. If we achieve one human, one vote using Oracles - who will run the oracles? Will there maybe be a master oracle for human identities that any community can access a whitelist from for free?

hehe.. that's a bug that has been fixed now - on steempeak at least.

It is good to see and things going onward and upward despite people worrying about the crash of steam full stop with all this work going into it there is no way we aren't going to exceed expectations.

Looks like you are getting back on track. I'll be interested to see if/how you market this. Steem/Steemit is not getting much media attention right now. I can't find any stories about Steemfest that are not on Steem, which is a bit sad. Especially when crypto is crashing like this we need to show investors that Steem has a thriving community of users and developers, unlike many coins that rank higher.

·

I share this sentiment as well. The fact that the broader crypto market in general pays very little attention to Steem which has arguably the most interesting ecosystem is very confusing to me.

I know Ned and others present at crypto events, but I think we should target other areas. Get a stand at music festivals or comic conventions. If creators and their fans join up then they have a new source of income. Word will spread in those communities.

Is Steemit Inc holding back on mass marketing for now? Do we need to wait for SMTs and/or the site to come out of beta?

Most of the growth so far has been organic but reaching outside of the crypto space is a great idea.

Steem is a hard sell until it gets more User Friendly.

Like a LOT MORE user friendly.

Not sure we need SBD, and many features I think history will show, are very difficult to support long term, with unregulated market forces. SBD has almost never worked as intended, and is more of a problem (very difficult to explain to mere mortals, constantly broken, huge liability, not really needed initially until tethering is much better understood).

The development going into it now on the front end clients is very encouraging, they will need some time to get marketing working; which Steemit never attempted to do seriously (daily email digest, news releases, music festivals).

·

There are limits on how user friendly it can be unless people surrender some trust to a third party. You have to look after your own keys, but we're seeing attempts to make that easier, e.g. Steem Keychain. We need apps like eSteem as that's what is expected these days. It's getting there, slowly, but other platforms could creep up and grab the public attention

Following in anticipation.

Testing. Don't vote\n\nI am thinking :/ :\

In times like these it especially brightens up one's day to see a curve going upwards, no matter the angle...:-) Steem on!

This is great, I'm so glad I found steemitblog to keep me informed.

Onward and Upward... only way to go !

Cool. Love seeing those story points slowly trending up. Hope no major impediments come up.

I know what you are doing is complex, I sometimes have a hard time working with blockchain APIs, imagine building one for scratch.
Good work and congratulations for another step! Every small or big one counts!

Slow and steady we shall get there

Is Jan 14, 2019 a hard SMT roll-out date?

Any time in the first quarter would be a welcome addition to the Steem blockchain and the experiment it represents in DAPP communities.

They are going to an excellent step friends of the Steem Team

silence is deafening, there should be a post here daily
