SteemFest2 Talks featuring Steemit CEO Ned Scott [Video]

in steemit •  23 days ago

Hello Steemians,

Today we are sharing two videos from SteemFest2 featuring the CEO of Steemit, @ned.

The first video is his keynote in which he discusses:

  • how Steem is ahead of the competition
  • the many great apps built on Steem like Utopian.io and d.tube
  • the growth of the platform
  • the Steemit Team
  • Smart Media Tokens

Ned’s SteemFest2 Keynote


The second video is Ned’s fireside chat with the journalist @andrewmcmillen (Andrew McMillen), author of the amazing article featured in Wired Magazine titled The Social Network Doling Out Millions in Ephemeral Money.

They talk about:

  • how Ned first got involved in cryptocurrencies
  • what elements of the technology drew him in
  • his thoughts on bitcoin
  • the religious elements around cryptocurrencies
  • what motivated the creation of Steem and steemit.com
  • the importance of encouraging dissenting opinions and challenging one’s own beliefs
  • potential use cases for Smart Media Tokens

Ned’s fireside chat with @andrewmcmillen


Special thanks to @roelandp for throwing an amazing SteemFest as well as providing some of the footage and audio used in these videos. We hope you enjoy them!

Great to have those videos extracted from whole stream :) Now we need to make them popular :)

Steemians, please repeat after me:

More upvotes on YouTube == better visibility :)

·

Those type of videos not popular on YouTube. Better make Pranks, kid's channel, some cool letsplay or something similar to new PewDiePie videos - fast paced edititng and humor.

LET'S MAKE STEEMIT GREAT and SEXY

What does @ned think about flaging? Interesting topic now on steemit

Does Facebook Connect help steemit @ned? How?

·

that is really great

·

Keep on the good work....follow&vote me. pls:)

·

Nice post! What will happening, if someone resteem your post?

Can we get a response from Team Steemit regarding their stance on potentially changing the linear rewards curve to something more effective (hybrid between linear and logarithmic?) as well as modifying the curation ratio and/or allowing curation percentage to be selected by users?

The general consensus of the community seems to be that the current situation is less than ideal with regards to rewards, including issues with self-voting, vote-bots, vote-selling, delegation, etc. Of course some feel there is not much issue, but could you please address this?

Many of us feel this is much more important than SMTs, communities, apps, etc. because they are fundamental issues that affect us on a daily basis as early adopters and firm believers in Steemit's potential. Hard fork 19 was a long time ago and it would be nice to get a report of Team Steemit's perspective on its successfulness.

Some of us are a bit concerned that there is a lack of "ordinary" perspective on Team Steemit, since it is mainly developers focusing on technology. Do you have regular dialogue with top witnesses and those who are moreso pure "users?" (using Steemit as content creators/ curators many hours per day.) It would be cool if there was a convenient forum for this.

Anyway, I have to say props on the improved communication as of late. These more frequent @steemitblog and @steemitdev updates are surely heartening. Much gratitude for your constant hard work and development!!!

·

There is quite a bit of discussion on these topics in various forums, especially surrounding #roadmap2018. I suspect Steemit will make their priorities clear when they release their roadmap.

Cool, Thanks! Starting the Fireside chat atm.

Thanks for putting these out! I hope more are to come!
Also, I would enjoy them from some of the other presenters, .....From the content Creators/ Steemians please. If possible!

·

Okay, cool! No amazing new SPECIFIC bits of information in the interview, but this is my first full @ned interview to watch. So, it was good.

And again, I hope Steemit Inc has ....or Roeland has the ability to share some additional presentations in the upcoming days, weeks and (if it has to take so long) months!
....something more than teasers, but that can tease me to plan on attending Steemfest 2018 in Austin, TX!

·
·

We do have more videos in the pipeline featuring more talks by Steemit Team members. Thanks for the feedback.

Community Liaison, Steemit

·
·
·

Cool! I appreciate the heads up! Thx

It is exciting to see @ned so excited about all that is going on. We all know he has a vested interest in seeing this blockchain get absolutely huge. Personally, I am super bullish on steem and look forward to a great 2018. We should cross 1 million people with some of the newer apps that are just emerging.

This blockchain is going to be huge.

Nice talk!

Ned needs to start delegating his SP in quantities of 5k to community engagers like I've been doing. Delegating more than that (e.g. 500K) is just too damn much for an individual.

·

That makes a ton of sense. Instead of supporting one, spread it around to the many. The multiplication factor of 100 people with 5K versus 1 with 500K is incredible. 100 people will be upvoting all over the place....they would have 1000 votes at 100% power....

That is how things will grow.

·
·

Try to guess what I just sent you ... :)

·
·
·

Thank you very much @fulltimegeek.

You just make my job with the minnows that much easier since you doubled my voting power. I resolved in a post to try to "adopt" a couple of them and get them to 1000 SP as quickly as possible by giving their daily post 100% upvotes. Once to 1000 SP, they are to turn around and help other sub 1000 minnows.

Thanks again and know I will be spreading the votes around.

·
·
·
·

That is so cool!

·
·
·
·
·

Doing all I can to lift as many people up on this platform as I can.

This place will excel the more people who are on here getting payback for their efforts. It takes time but with consistent effort plus us all rallying around each other, we can get it done.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Sounds Texan "get it done!"

You are right, it doesn't happen quickly, but working together it will be successful. I keep telling my sister we need to start Posting. But seems all we do is comment and learn!

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Commenting is a great way to get your feet wet. However, you need to start posting...that is how you can develop a following and get people to know you.

Either way, getting involved is the most important thing. And it appears you are doing that.

·

I like that idea... send me some @ned 😂😂😂

·
·

Shieeeeettttt ... me tooo ... fuq.

·
·
·

We’ll take 100k each... thanks @ned 🤣

·

That's amazing @fulltimegeek. Thank you for being so altruistic and having a long term view of what will help Steemit as a collective become more successful. I completely agree that smaller delegations being spread out is more helpful than a few people receiving hundreds of thousands. After all, there are thousands of incredible individuals here that add a lot of value to the platform in their own unique way. What has excited me most about Steemit in the time I've been here is the ability to spread support around in a direct and convenient manner. I hope someday I'll be in the position to do as you are. Cheers!

·

Also, why the hell doesn't @steemitblog have an avatar? ... smh

·

I agree. @ned and @steemit could both do this. Maybe @steemit less, since they need it for use more frequently.

@fulltimegeek if I can get in line for delegation consideration. The majority of my participation is working on greeting new users and also monitoring, reporting and flagging clear cases of Spam and Scams. I am still very new, and I hope you will keep me in mind for later if my work is not sufficient yet to garner your support.
Thx

Nice.

also monitoring, reporting and flagging clear cases of Spam and Scams.

Nice x2

I've looked through your history and decided to also delegate 5k SP to you. Congrats. But, do try to up-vote more often b/c I see that you're voting power is full via SteemNow. It takes 2.4 hours to recharge after a 100% vote. So, please try to vote at least 10x a day.

·
·
·

I'm game for some delegation too.

·
·
·
·

Oh, do ya now???? What chu' got to offer homie? I see that you have voted for a total of a whopping 10 different people in the past week. I wouldn't really consider that engaging.

·
·
·
·
·

Doin the best with a full-time job.

·
·
·
·

More of my interactions are with those in The Challenges @revelationquotes

·
·
·
·
·

@fulltimegeek If you are looking to delegate to community-builders, you may find this one worthwhile: https://steemit.com/@steemstem

·
·
·

WOW!!!! No way! I just upvoted you $0.32!!
You just blew my mind! Thank you!
Please check back often and provide any feedback that you can! I do want to use this responsibly, as you would have me to! 10X THX :-D

·
·

·
·
·
·
·
·

I'm glad to see you delegating more and spreading out the curation incentives in newcomers! Will be really good for the platform, thanks!

·
·
·
·
·
·

I just wish I would've done it sooner ....

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Its never too late. :)

In case you have heard of @ocd, we are currently creating a bot that will support all previously nominated authors of original content while removing potential abusers from the list. It's a non-profit bot where the delegatees receive 100% of the curation rewards in case you'd be interested to take a look at it once its up.

·
·
·
·

Congrats @public-eye
Should help your curation work a lot!!

·
·
·
·

Nice one, welcome to team @fulltimegeek. :)

·

Even though I have no idea of why he decided to delegate tons of SP to a handful of Steemians, I guess he had a decent plan... However, he should definitely delegate in quantities instead.

Perhaps it was too time consuming trying to find multiple users or the lack of ideas. Delegating 500K also encourage users to either start their own vote-selling business or insane self-votes, and we've seen both.

I hope he'll do quantities in the future.

Ned joven con muchos conocimientos. Energía positiva. Sigue así, sigue creciendo . Nosotros esta

we are growing :)

6 minutes into the first video,pretty uplifting speech from@ned

Hey @steemitblog thank you for the update and information I think when dtube and utopia will run on full length it will turn the seemit growth and it will get Rockettes after the launch of Smart Media Tokens and I am waiting for this to grasp the opportunity.
Best wishes to @ned

Woow damage it is near us, how to have an invitation for the next?

·

No invitation. You just have to buy your own ticket and pay for your travel and accomodations at the event.

and ??? "damage it is near us" what does that mean???????

·
·

Portugal is close to Morocco, thanks @public-eye

I'm so excited to be on this new platform!
After a month of using SteemIt, I really like it!

Thanks a lot for keeping us to date on the news! He is such a great orator and being at the core of all this development, we all gain from listening to his talks.

Namaste :)

Interesting

Let us spread the news, resteem this post so other people in your small network will be able to watch this video and help extend it's audience. This is good for the community.

@yehey

I would like to be able to filter content based on how long a post is and also some content that its posesses like vloggers or so Im not really into that or super small posts that are uninspiring like f.e. just a quote. That would add and also it's strange that discord holds so many community's of steemit, that I think the focus must be with the gathering aspect of people and creativity that is driving force of steem since it comes from the community... also I think the smartmediatokens can lead to all kinds of restrictions but may be smart for the block but users won't like it in the long run.. focus on the gathering also I've heard a lot of complaints about ballicking for posts, I even get it myself sometimes it's annoying.. if I block someone he shouldnt see my posts either.. if you ask me also fix the bot issue like bernie is doing.. and restrict abuse of the price pool or add a voting system like a poll for example to monitor the ideas and support for future directions.. to give some data and to understand yourself what going on better... and partner or call some people who have raised multiple company's that are based on userexperiences and learn from them ;) and it may be time to drop the ''earn money now'' invitation since it's not the most important part for people who are longer here,

Sir Steemit no have any competitor in the market. And i proved of it i m a member of this biggest team. but y steemit team no my upgrade rank .?

nice post

Thanks 'yall!

If I meet this guy I’ll ask alot of question

Btw, anyone knows what’s the meaning of payout declined?

Thanks for sharing these. I missed both of these @ned talks and I have no idea where I was but now I can finally watch. STEEMFest was wild :)

·

Two years in a row it was the best days of the year for me :). Great meeting you

·
·

I’m definitely sad that I missed Amsterdam but I can’t wait for 3.0! It was awesome meeting you.

And like I told @dougkarr.. I’m an hour out of NYC, if @hardfork-series needs anyone for anything let me know and I’d be more than happy to come down and get involved!

Good to know. Thanks!

Congratulations to the developers of the steemit platform. The platform has progressed tremendously, and I hope we all progress with steemit. Thank you for creating a astounding site for us social media lovers.
I enjoyed your videos of the success story, of how the developers worked very hard on the development and implementation of a great token and powerful network community.

I write my new tracks every day
the weather is good today by the way
I need good mood to write my songs
I will create track about different phones

I wonder whether a Craigslist style design could change the paradigm...What do "tags" do these days and whatever happened to "hash"tags....?

Thanks!
