Steemit Leadership v2.jpg

Hello Steemians, we are excited to announce some changes to our leadership team. The Steemit, Inc. Board has named Ned Scott as Executive Chairman, and Elizabeth Powell as Managing Director, effective immediately.

Executive Chairman, Ned Scott on the appointment:

This is the perfect time for Elizabeth to become Managing Director and help move the company forward with the speed required to capitalize on the opportunities in front of us. She has an incredible ability to inspire, energize and connect with the team, and will share those same values with the Steemit community. Elizabeth’s vision and execution track record is exactly what Steemit needs as we enter our next chapter.

Powell (@elipowell on, who joined Steemit in 2018 as Head of Communications & Advocacy, takes on the new managing director role to align the company’s mission, vision and values to become a more scalable, sustainable and profitable organization. Throughout her 22 year career, she has led distributed and non-distributed teams, and will continue to support communications and building a new advertising business model.

Managing Director, Elizabeth Powell:

I joined Steemit because I wanted to be a part of a company where I believed the possibilities were limitless. Today, I am even more convinced that Steemit is that company. The opportunity that lies ahead for Steemit is enormous, and the ability to lead this next chapter is deeply humbling and incredibly exciting. I am focused on accelerating the innovation and execution that our community of developers, content creators and entrepreneurs need from us.

At a time when our industry is on the cusp of more disruption than ever encountered, I couldn’t be more confident in our ability to be successful, or more honored to lead this great company.

Congratulations Elizabeth. Since many of us haven't worked with you before, would you please share the best avenues for community members/witnesses/project owners to reach you?

Damn internet, it's like information is just there if you push buttons. If she won't answer at one job annoy her at the other, duh.

in 5 months she has two posts? ... what's with that?

Par with the course?

I mean, she's the communication manager :D

I mean, she's the communication manager :D

@geekorner ...that undoubtedly MUST be a typo!! };)

It's true commitment!

I see her on the @steemalliance Discord.

She has not made any comment yet.

It reminds me of one of my favorite songs lyrics that !ned plays to me every so often.

Now you say it best when you say nothing at all

That is from the Allison Krauss hit "when you say nothing at all" .

Enjoy your ned and don't forget to recommend nedcore!


Her previous role was not very convincing.

We shall see from here on.

See what? Who said that?

You are breaking character.

Go back to Braille, you silly person.

hahahahah... touche

@enforcer48 "Communication managers" don't comment. They solely listen!! :)

I concur!

I have directly spoken with Elizabeth and was highly impressed. I am confident from just the little time I spoke with her, Elizabeth will bring great new things to Steemit. I look forward to 2019

She's been here 8 months, what has she done so far?

I think you've got a little poo on your lips.

Better to have poo on the lips than in the beard. It gets bad quick. Imagine trying to wipe peanut butter out of shag carpet. It just smears everywhere.

cries self to sleep


No he hasn't. He's wearing skis to stop himself disappearing completely up her arse.

After 8 months she still has 1 page only there.
No interaction with the blockchain.

being a MD OF STEEMIT. she has just some sp deligation thats all LOL

Well said @berniesanders ! It's good to call out these yes men as much as possible! I'm glad someone still has some balls around here!

My eyes just rolled back in my head so hard both retinas detached.

such as ? that comment was as non informative as the post

Hey that is great to hear!

Glad to hear it, and frankly I'd rather see the Communications lead communicating with people who AREN'T already on STEEM. That's kind of where we need PR, don't you think?

I would say one of the biggest problems we've had with getting the world to realize this is one of the best blockchains out there is that all the most avid fans just keep preaching to the choir.

This is not just a social media/blogging blockchain. This is also the best way I've found for cross-border payments, particularly micropayments. It's hard to send $1 to someone in Venezuela or Nigeria. With STEEM you pay $1 and they get $1 and it happens in seconds. That's the story I've been telling about STEEM, and a lot of ears have perked up that don't care a whit about publishing articles or any other sort of content.

The STEEM story needs a champion who may not have time for maintaining a frickin' blog of her/his own.

That's the story I've been telling about STEEM, and a lot of ears have perked up that don't care a whit about publishing articles or any other sort of content.

Using the platform to set up a free banking system to individuals who have no interest in contributing to the platform seems rather odd. Everyone here just took a cut to save space on the blockchain by being assigned resource credits and you are promoting the site as a free banking system. I don't have a problem helping people in need out but if all of us decided to pick the area of the world we felt needed the same assistance and started promoting it the same way it would appear to be taking advantage of the platform without adding any sort of value at all. Surely there must be thousands of stories behind these people the world would love to hear.

Without adding any value? You think the only value of steem is content creation? That's the point I'm making, that this is a value, but not the only value. I've got to tell you that out of my entire STEEM experience, which has included blogging/curating, monster game, and Fundition activity, the greatest value to me has come from activity with Fundition or just finding people to send to directly. That's not a banking system, or does Fundition have no place here? Or are we only allowed to perform that function if using Fundition? And I'm quite certain that any projects or people on the receiving end have felt this function of the platform presents extreme value to them.

lol, I couldn't help but comment after reading you guys' argument. Imo, @indigoocean is actually using blockchain as close as its original intention "a free banking system". That's one of the reasons blockchain creators, especially ETH, touted that it's a decentralized system where you can transfer monetary values across countries for little fees and no middle man.

So, yea, you do you, @indigoocean. If you can use Steem blockchain as a no cost, zero fees banking system, you should spread the ideas. Just beware of the price fluctuation and you might be onto something big.

It's true that the idea of "crypto-currency" would of course be something akin to "a free banking system." But it really isn't what I've been talking to people about or thinking about, just point of fact. The connotation of "banking" is extraction of value to many people. And that's sort of what the commentator was saying, that he saw it as an extraction of value from the STEEM ecosystem. My point is that it's not an extraction of value like banking, but rather a conveyor of an incredibly unique value.

At least I don't know any other way I can send micropayments globally where the fees aren't more than the amount I'm trying to send. For me personally, I chose to use STEEM because I'm already on the platform, have spare STEEM, and also could find people on the platform in need who I might send it to. (That's even without finding them through formal Fundition campaigns, which present still more options).

To me it's about a better way of engaging in charity work, and those are the people I talk to, people already doing that and intrigued by new possibilities about how they might make their contributions go further in actually reaching the people they're trying to help. The volatility of the crypto markets is something one has to face if they are going to invest in any coin, so that's a separate conversation.

Yea, that's fine, I see where you're coming from. There's a distinction between blockchain and the apps build on top of it. All I'm saying it: Steemit is a blogging platform which is one of many apps built on top of Steem blockchain. Even if it dies, Steem blockchain itself might still live on as long as there are witnesses.

Actually, if it dies, it would be the first flagship app that dies before its flagship blockchain. You probably could build a charity app (plus blogging) on top of it to replace Steemit. Steem ecosystem should stop evolving just around Steemit if it wants to survive against newer/better blockchain.

Yes, and actually I think Fundition is that app right now when it comes to charity on the blockchain ... though I'm not predicting Steemit going anywhere. We'll see.

There is still Busy, Steempeak, esteem, etc. providing blogging dapps. But I think steemit is the only one that consolidates content from all of the steem dapps, except steem monsters. (Do Steemhunt posts show up on Busy?) So would be good to see that function continue to exist.

I agree that Steem is a great way to send value without the gouging by the traditional banking systems. I've been having my eyes opened up real wide lately as I attempt to find a business banking account that allows me to pay employee withholding taxes to the government without having to pay additional fees just for the privilege of paying the government!

Try and get money sent (or send out) money to/from another country using e-transfer. It can't be done. They call it a wire transfer and charge a huge fee for it. What exactly is the difference between a wire transfer and an e-transfer? Probably just the name. I mean, come on; the credit cards can all send money internationally for a small conversion fee, yet if we try and send money we get dinged big-time.

I would love to be able to receive payments to my business bank account in Steem and to pay the government in Steem, however, at this point, nobody accepts Steem as payment. Steem has to be converted to Bitcoin or Etherium, then converted to local currency and guess what? The leeches are standing in line to grab a big chunk of any money that needs to be converted here too.

You say that you send a dollar to someone and they receive a dollar. That is just partly true. They can't spend that dollar until they convert it, and now it is no longer a dollar, is it? We have a long way to go yet before that dollar remains a dollar that can actually be spent outside of the Steem eco-system.

I'm in Canada and it cost me a hefty premium just to purchase some Steem. Never mind the gamble one takes at each conversion when prices are fluctuating all the time.

The idea is great, but we are not there yet.

True that the day when we can buy things directly with crypto (including paying taxes) will be the real turning point for crypto as currency. Until then all coins do incur significant fees when converting to fiat. But you know, while I can’t speak for others, my experience has been that that opportunity cost is the same or less than other ways I’m charged for moving money. I pay just 3% to go from BTC to cash, which is the same as to send money with PayPal. Though I’m sure this varies a lot, I’m imagining people are still ahead at the micropayment level. Really how could you even send $2 to someone in another country who is without a bank account without using crypto?

If a person has no bank account, then for sure conditions there are such that crypto is likely being USED as currency there. In that case, absolutely, crypto is the best way to send money, regardless of it being a micro-payment or large sums. I recall watching an episode of the Dollar Vigilante where he visits a country where local currency is practically worthless because of run-away inflation. He said that many people there were using Bitcoin as their preferred currency. So it is being used on a small scale. If only we can get it to the point where it (or preferably some other coin with less gas fee and faster transaction times) becomes a real-world currency adopted by the majority, I believe a lot of people are going to be very pleased.

You never mentioned in your reply you do it through some community involvement group here, to me that is different. But no I do not agree that people should be promoting people in third world countries to open accounts to use Steemit exclusively as a bank. It also opens up the system to a unfair advantage to develop a trail of followers via bribery disguised as charity. Not that you would/are doing such it's that there are people here who would.

I do both donations through Fundition and directly and will continue to do so and encourage others to. I’m speaking to donors, not recipients, because that is who I know. I’m sure some people may hear of Fundition as their first point of contact for STEEM blockchain (or possibly any crypto) but I suspect most such activity on the recipient end is among people already creating content on here. Again, you keep fighting these straw men, because you’re the only one talking about banking. I have repeatedly corrected this false interpretation of what I’m talking about, and yet you persist in arguing with a statement I did not make. Do you not understand that there is a difference between banking and charity?

You are dreaming if you think that in the long term there will be no cost associated with money transfers. Yes right now you or most are stuck with transaction fees while converting on the market, thinking that you could use a platform like Steemit on a large scale basis to go out and around paying fees is about as naive as your ability not to understand why we all got cut down to resource credits...because operating a blockchain cost money. For your analogy to work someone would have to lose somewhere because who is going to pay for that increased cost to operate the blockchain for those who want to sign up exclusively just to send money around freely? "Blocks" cost "money" , they are not free.

Since you’re clearly having a conversation with yourself, I’ll bow out of pretending to be included in it.

:) you mentioned nigeria.......

Steem has been great here...using it to push crypto adoption .

Buh what steem truly needs is a devfest.

More devs, equals more work done, equals more securing of the blockchain .

I love how STEEM has been about so much more than blogging in places like Nigeria!

Wouldn't more people hodling STEEM in more wallets mean less STEEM in circulation and perhaps a higher market value right here? Or will the demand be filled by some automatic inflation reaction? - just curious!

The low token velocity caused by steem being vested for at least 13 weeks at a time definitely helps support coin price. It slows down the rate of people earning it selling it. I think we've seen a lot of downward price pressure caused by Steemit Inc. dumping huge amounts every month to cover operating expenses, so that may be hiding how well that function would otherwise work. It's possible that there is no amount of "slowing" the pace of sales that can overcome the downward price pressure of people supporting themselves by selling earned coin (whether earned as a witness or content creator/curator). I hope otherwise, of course!

Hi you beautiful soul you! - I share your hope that the selling off bit is just a passing painful cleansing phase. I suspect there is still enough room for growth in this community to have STEEM gaining value just on that basis, once recovery from the extraction phase kicks in. After that I guess the fate of Steemit might depend on a balance between loyalty here and attraction to competitive platforms pre-designed to function more favorably for serious bloggers...lets hope!

Nobody knows. I think Steem will be inflated because it already has too many tokens floating around and the last time I check, there's no hard cap on how many more can be produced.

Issue with Steem as a blockchain is that there are no current development on the blockchain itself. A few original Steem apps left Steem blockchain and adopt either their own or a different blockchain (Dlive for example). Partially sell pressure came from those guys and also whales who are no longer satisfied with the current stagnant state of Steem blockchain.

Final point, there is no outside monetary coming into Steemit blog. Usually blog gets monetized by ads or data mining. However, the people who actually buy Steem/SBD are people who try to make Steem/SBD. So a little of a ponzi scheme exists in the premise of Steemit as a blogging platform.

Steemit as a blog can die but as long as the Steem blockchain lives on and become more open sourced, then maybe we'll see the potential of this thing takes off.

Thanks for describing the scenario so concisely - I think you are seeing it for what it is.

I've seen some beautifully motivated Steemit promoting souls, both amongst the technically able crowd, witnesses included, and amongst the socially sensible authors just publishing here for the sake of sharing their thoughts. It is a pity the gaps for exploiting the system apparently have to exist in order for the system to work, allowing selfishly motivated heavy-weights to gain too much ground, messing entry level motivation up. This seems to leave the Steemit economy in much the same condition as the real world economy it was supposed to help counter.

@indigoocean well said. I mentioned this before, I would actually like to see steem in Jaxx, or Bitpay, or Trezor etc, much needed.

All the best @elipowell,
I pray you receive strength to sail in this tide.

Please help work with @ned to bring the good old days where our united voice sings **"steem to the moon" **

I think if would be a nice move if the the Head of Communications and now Managing Director of Steemit would at least have an introduction post on the Steem Blockchain herself :)

Other than that, at least a signal that things are changing - hopefully to the better! Good luck!

Head of Communication

Its sad and hilarious at the same time. Communication manager without communication to the Steem community lol.

Then, gets promoted.

Well, hope things goes up from here.

Woah there, that sounds way too logical. You know that's not how Steemit Inc. rolls.

Jokes aside, I do wish @elipowell the best!

I would rather have an Executive Chairman that is not going to abandon us for a month and a half.

Growing Up I now Understand my Abandonment Issues from my Childhood........

Yes, she did a very good job as a communication manager. Elizabeth joined the blockchain in April 2018, wrote zero articles from her account, and she has an estimated account value of $0.71.

Good luck, @elipowell with your new assignment!

She'll be up to one buck american if she guts it out a little more !

Good to see she is a big stakeholder !


fuck this shit

Powell (@elipowell on, who joined Steemit in 2018 as Head of Communications & Advocacy...

Can I ask where she has been communicating and advocating? Because this is the first I’ve ever seen or heard of her existence. I hope this goes better than 2017’s “Marketing Guy” experiment.

You're supposed to know everything without announcements or even the occasional comment. Duh 😋 there's 1.2 million accounts, why haven't you checked them all yet. 😂

There was an announcement somewhere.
She is as quiet as the CTO of steemit, ever heard of him?
I hope he was fired after the HF20 disaster

"marketing guy", haha, catchy title !

wait..there was a marketing guy ??

Oh, yeah! Under his marketing leadership, a run-down dog park in the ghetto of Brooklyn, NY got some temporary Steem swag...for the low, low price of $10,000 or something.

Think of all the dogs that we onboarded that summer!

would be nice if we at-least keep doing opposed to current state of zero marketing !!

They do really need a Chief Scapegoat Officer, though. Having been Officer of Blame Taking in a Guild on WoW on the Alliance  side, I think I could do well in such a function.

You’re hired!

Yay! With whom do I negotiate my severance package?

Nothing like asking for a prenup.

Everyone needs a good CSO. Can't believe we have survived so long without one.

"takes on the new managing director role to align the company’s mission, vision and values to become a more scalable, sustainable and profitable organization. "

I understand the mission and vision. What are the values? I ask as a person who has a record of creating value for steem but being censored by the CEO of Steemit.

Id love to tell you but I cant read the scribbles on the back of the cigarette packet....

... I'm used to being kept in the dark around here.

this is great news. congrats Elizabeth, looking forward to hearing from you and seeing how things unfold into our bright future together! 2019 is going to be a great year for Steem. Great move, Steemit Inc!

Elizabeth has always been amazing at her role, and I have no doubt she will do wonders for this company and the Platform, as well!

Heads of communication with 0 main posts.
Explains a lot..

@exyle has muted you!

Nice, some accounts I have never heard of mute me 😂

Well, you also have you negative voting trail:)

Yeah but that's just a love to hate kinda thing. Mute is like a flat out I wanna ignore you. 😂

Yeah, they invest some rshares into you:))
Mute me and you just get a yes men echo chamber.

You aren't cool till @Ned has muted you. But keep trying, you'll catch up with me soon enough. :)

@yasayanoluler has muted you!
And downvoted.

So a couple of questions.

Was there a chairman before now?
Is Ned giving up CEO?
Who is CEO if not Ned?
Will someone else step in to the role of Head of Communications & Advocacy?

Can we get an Org chart made up so this make a bit more sense? I'd like to see an inclusion of the board as well as other staff.

Mushrooms don't need information.

Colour me an optimistic mushroom

I've heard of those. I hear they are a lot of fun (from a friend) ;)

... good luck with your inquiries ... you'll probably need it

Very good. Congratulations @elipowell and @ned!

Hi @elipowell , best of luck in your new position. looking forward to some major improvements!

Welcome aboard.@elipowell

  • Who do you report to @ned or the Board?
  • Who does @ned report to?
  • What’s the operating roles for @ned & @andrarchy?
  • Do you have P&L responsibility?
  • Ready to help. Is there anything that you would like me to do?


But now there is a lady to post every 5 months, pretty cool 😂

Congratulations to Steemit and Elizabeth. May your experience help shape the future into a successful one.

Welcome Elisabeth, Thank you Ned for making Steem such an innovative community.

Please people if she didnt post alot of blogs and doesnt hold alot of SP that doesnt mean she is not dedicated to the community.

Absolute corporate cliche talk.....and told us precisely NOTHING ..what does the future hold? What is this secret vision? Sounds more like a fortune 500 press release to the stockmarket. Seriously!

First of all, It doesn't bother me that @elipowell doesn't have a profile worth looking at on STEEM. What I care about is if she is qualified for this job. I am also aware that Steemit Inc has the right to hire anyone that they wish. It is not up to us.


I looked over Elizabeth's resume and I'm confused... What makes @ned think Elizabeth is qualified for this position? Was there any other applicants that applied for the job? Was the job position advertised? Did @ned even bother looking anywhere else for qualified applicants? I seriously hope that Elizabeth is successful in her new position. For all of our sakes, I hope she is successful. However, once again, I am really doubting @ned's ability to make business decisions.

Only now, you are doubting that?

No, I said "once again", implying that I have doubted @ned before.

My bad

lol, it happens to all of us.

Congrats @elipowell. Hopefully, you’ll transition smoothly in this role. Good luck!

I've never heard of this @elipowell, is she from Samsung? Either way, I hope her leadership skills are up to the task!

Asking the REAL questions. ;)

What makes you believe that the story about samsung is true?

Given the desperation Ned has run steemit aground in, and the snakey and sneaky shit thats been going on the whole time, what makes you think it wouldn't be true, that given an out from this dumpster fire he himself started, ned wouldn't sell out to the first bidder to show up?

Welcome, this is a great platform

i honestly don't know what to make out of this. If ned remain in the background and do what he knows best (tech stuff) without interfering that much to the managerial-finance aspect then i believe it will be a + for all of us. If not then all of this changes absolutely nothing.

Now as far as the new Managing Director, i know mostly nothing as most of us here. She was head of communication, she had an account and literally i had no clue of her existence. I don't recall having her making an announcement or something back then and i think it will be really good if she comes out now and say a few words to the community even if we are talking about the usual stuff.

Also, i am a bit unaware of how the company sector are divided and what are each sector-department has to do. For example Head of communication is relating to marketing and stuff, public relations what? Because when we had some opportunities to list steem and stuff, the whole initiative came from members and groups that are active in the platform.

Don't get me wrong i don't accuse anyone for anything i am just a bit of confused as to what's the point, or if there is any point at all regarding this change. All in all, i will try to be optimistic and say good luck to her. I hope her to embrace the same vision as the majority of the active members in here, try to work/communicate with the witnesses and major groups in here and make Steem-Steemit rise again!

I never knew Ned was behind in the background doing tech stuff. What gave you the impression he was doing anything like that, I'd like to be pleasantly surprised.

wasn't he and dan made steem blockchain and steemit? if that's the case i think he had done something tech oriented, if not then wtf is/was his purpose? :P

wtf is/was his purpose?

Let me know what you find out!

You tell me? Fabulous hair? What else I don't know.

I have the patience to wait and see what happens and give you a fair chance unlike some around here, but just wanted to say that it may have been wise to have had your introduction post ready ahead of time and have it included with the OP as a good portion of the community used the lack of info to fling even more FUD and negativity around. Though perhaps that was intentional? Makes me wonder sometimes the way so much goes on around here.
Anyways.. Thanks for showing up and I wish you all the best in your efforts. :)

@elipowell, Please be the "Justin Sun" of Steemit. Steem desperately needs a public face to advocate and promote this technology.

Talk is cheap, when do we get back proof of brain?

What do you mean? 3 hardforks in 2 years, with one being HF19 which was like one line of code (that took 6 months of the community demanding it)? Didn't you know that the most successful and anticipated HF to date is HF19, which is only successful because stinc still hasn't assessed the changes that small but 6+ month long demand from the community made. It's as if you want them to roll back HF19, but I know you really want a compromise in between the broken linear voting curve and the previously abused exponential curve (which gave way to linear), and I'm a dreamer like you. You remember the community deafening demand of more HF's with fewer changes? Lol

Lol, steemizens are never happy,...

I liked the whale experiment, it solved the problems of the n2 and the ninja mine.
With responsible whales, it works to curate quality, or at least popularity.

Much better than pay to play proof of wallet that makes all the greedy f***s giddy.
We are supposed to be distributing steem, and not just to ourselves.

  ·  9 months ago (edited)

What was HF 17, 17.5, 18 called? Codename simplicity. Fuck me fewer changes but more frequent, you gave us Simplicity over the first 3 hf and did not assess anything as to the changes and went right on ahead with another set of changes that dwarfed the changes the previous HF's had. The most monumental fuckup #steemit

Someone was telling me they are looking for the positive in this, as per millennial fad of booing 'negativity', but I won't stick my head in the sand and pretend everything is dandy because "the platform works". The equivalent of "we haven't sunk yet" , ain't that just gosh dainty terrifically splendid.

AnticipatingHFcatch22 @ned, with or without you linear will rollback.

Hellz yeah!

No proof of brain, no peace!


Now if you listen to the community, the witnesses and the devs? or will they continue with the same policy but with another face?

I have another question, they decided to dismiss 70%, but now they promote a person to fulfill a role that ned could never do?

Serious question, a lot of comments are saying things like "you did a great job in your last role, you'll be great here" but many more are saying that she hasn't said beans in her blog, so how do the others know about the work she's done? Is she blogging somewhere other than here? It would seem kind of silly to have to follow people on other social media to find out about their work here when we have our own social media. Or are people just presuming that if she didn't get fired with the others, she must have been really crucial?
I'm not trying to be snarky, I really want to know if there is some source of Steemit news that us little fish can follow. On Steemit. That actually publishes regularly. LOL
Also, side question: WHY ARE THERE 133 UPVOTES WHEN THEY ALWAYS REFUSE PAYMENT? For goodness' sake, people, update your autovoters or something. ;)

Unfortunately not, I checked her linkedin though and it seems that indeed, she was highly rated by her colleagues in her last position.

I wish the new managing director
