The Steem Alliance Working Group Disbands.
Three of the active WG members (Eonwarped, Llfarms, and Shadowspub) have been asked to integrate into the initial "steering team" to help begin the building process as well as to facilitate a community election for the Leadership Board of the foundation. (Details Here)
At this point, the working group's job is complete and the proposal team will move on to the legality and building phase.

What is the Steem Alliance?
The Steem Alliance is an idea of a community coming together to build a foundation with the collective goal of improving Steem as a whole.
The goal of this future foundation is to be the combined “face of the chain”, working alongside additional groups as well as Steemit Inc. to better the Steem platform together. With a main focus on helping to push Steem into the mainstream arena with focus on marketing, upkeep of Steemit.com, development of steemd, outreach and Steem events. Funding would need to be fundraising/profit based but also with large seed from Steemit Inc. itself.
The goal of this Working Group is to oversee the establishment of the future foundation while ensuring transparency, fairness and that the community's voice is heard. Once the foundation is established, Working Group is disbanded.
