The price is low and activity tends to go up and down with price action. I've been noticing my "Feed" seems slow and thinking a lot of people aren't around lately. As it turns out, it seems that magically my account stopped following many people I normally follow. I am not even sure that I would have known other than I realized a few days ago I was no longer following Inertia, I thought maybe I accidentally clicked unfollow, and I didn't think much about it. Today I noticed I am also no longer following @tarazkp and at least one other. I thought it was just they weren't active. I don't know how many others I have been missing, but some for sure. A couple of weeks back I read another post that said they were having this issue, but I didn't stop to consider it very carefully. Anyhow if I normally engage and you haven't seen me for a while, leave me a comment below!
SBDs and HF20.
If you haven't heard yet, the blockchain is not printing SBD anymore which is an interesting change. If you read the information on @steemitblog you probably know @timcliff has coded and submitted code to change the percent of SBDs in comparison to Steem before the blockchain quits printing SBDs, the result would be SSBDs would print again. Here is the post for more information as I can't speak to the technical side at all. I have mixed feelings as I am kind of wondering if SBDs are necessary at all at this point. Due to who we get as end-users and the difficult learning curve, I lean to suddenly wanting to make things as easy as we can. I don't have a strong opinion yet, I guess I am still mulling it around. Whatever happens with this one, it will be okay.
An awesome part of Tim's work though is that it proves a witness or community developer can submit code for consideration and that it would be considered for the Hardfork. No more complaining that no one can change anything because... "SteemIt, Inc". If you want a change, code it and ask for Community Support in getting it through the hardfork process.
Three times recently I've heard that "The Dolphins" are powering down. No one wants to name names. :) My account is always powering down and I always power it back up. I checked the "Own SBD" ranks on https://mysteemitfriends.online/
I didn't see that my standings had changed any. I'm not sure who we are talking about, but I haven't noticed yet. If it were to be true that would probably help with distribution and "new blood" is always good. Anyway, I'm nosy, so if you know who people are talking about let me know. :)
Keep in mind as we sob and cry over the price that all of crypto is looking pretty ugly and this is the time to post and accumulate.
