Checking on Steem at coingeckosteemCreated with Sketch.

I always used to check the crypto prices at Coinmarketcap, but I have found them a little unreliable at times. They report big volume from some dodgy exchanges. The site run by @coingecko seems to give better data and they have lots of extra stats. I do not trade, but I like to see what is going on.

I just saw that @coingecko will be at Steemfest next week. I would love talk to them, but I will not be there. Say hi from me if you see them. It is great to have a service like this active on this platform.

I see the Steem price is showing some improvement this week, but that may be part of general optimism in the market with China talking about adopting crypto.

Nearly a million dollars in volume today. Maybe we can see more on the next #SPUD on Friday.

I like that they show how it has changed over various periods. We are at the best in a month. We shall ignore the o me year number for now :)

I shall attempt a little 'technical analysis'. Given that this wiggly line has wiggled a lot I predict it will continue to wiggle, either up or down.

Those historic figures are quite sobering. We are at double the lowest low, but a tiny fraction of the all-time high. I do not expect to see it at multiple dollars in the short term, but maybe the release of SMTs will boost confidence. I hope we will hear more on plans from Steemfest and I want to hear that Steemit will do some marketing. With a miniscule proportion of people having heard of Steem it can be hard to get anyone to consider using it. We need a new wave of early adopters.

I plan to keep buying small amounts of Steem when I can. I am not earning too much due to on-going trolling, but that is okay as I do not make a huge amount normally anyway.

I remain optimistic for Steem we have a good community and exciting developments. We just need the world to know about it.

Steem on!

Hi! We might not be able to meet in meatspace, but we'd say the blockchain is the second best place to mingle.

Also, fantastic technical analysis 😆.

I meet so many cool people here. I hope our physical paths cross some day. Enjoy Steemfest.

Given that this wiggly line has wiggled a lot I predict it will continue to wiggle, either up or down.

Get ready for an absolute standstill.

I fully expect to be proven right

Unfortunately we have seen a lot of internal advancement with STEEM and it has done little to move the numbers. I think it is going to have to be something outside of STEEM that is going to make it come back. Thanks for reminding me about SPUD. I have about 100 STEEM I will save to power up on that day!
