Did you know SBD is actually called Steem Backed bucks?

Steem Fest 3 is organized by @roelandp. Venue is in Krakow, Poland from November 7-11, 2018.

The BLACK List

@themarkymark is at it again. This time a compilation of all the users you need to check against for abuse.

Developer or not, decentralized or centralized, there should be a list of known abuse suspects.

@GuiltyParties brought this to our attention

GuiltyParties has teamed up with Niffler to bring the art of cryptocurrency trading to military veterans everywhere and to the Steem ecosystem in general.

If you're new to crypto-trading and STEEM is your first crypto, it would be worthwhile to learn virtual trading before diving in head first and lose your STEEM.

@Niffler is risk-free environment for newbies trading cryptocurrencies.

Wow. Thank you for including my open letter. I would not have thought it as newsworthy but I do hope everyone takes times to take care of themselves.

My friend @malos10 says be atrong to be useful

It is excellent wisdom. Put on your own oxygen mask bedore you try to help those around you. Or you will help no one.

Be well, everyone.


The editors of steemitweekly agree with the work you're doing on Steemit. We hope to see you around for a long time.


On behalf of myself and my witness teammates, I appreciate that very much. I will give you my balanced very best.

I read everything till @sircork's very sad post about worthless time and efforts and health spent him on steemit and the girl who doesn't love him. Will do the rest tomorrow/
Guys I like this weekly digest more and more every week!
Anyone here knows if @sircork`s lover is a girl steemian or not?


Why would I want any other kind of girl? :-)


haha, that's right, that's exactly what I thought after reading your sincere article man! It opened my eyes on many aspects of steemit life. I was also thinking of that "cor"k root of your name. It seems to me like this is the main reason of your feelings to that girl./ Though I can be wrong here..


cor as in core? :)

Thanks for mentioning my article @steemitweekly! =)

Followed, resteemed and upvoted

Your balance is below $0.3. Your account is running low and should be replenished. You have roughly 10 more @dustsweeper votes. Check out the Dustsweeper FAQ here:

Some good info there! Ima have to check most of those out closer when I get a chance and will take a some time to go through it.. But just wanted to leave a comment right now anyways and say great work again putting this together! You're getting off to a great start in my opinion. :D

Especially curious about the deadpost initiative one as well! That sounds interesting.


There are fun stuff to be had on the blockchain. People are just too blinded by the Steem.

A nice selection of reading material for the week.


We aim for quality.

Great work every one, really enjoyed this edition. I wanted to give @sircork an upvote for his thought provoking post, but it had gone past the 7 day window.

Looking forward to the next edition



You could always donate or upvote some @youarehope posts to fund @sircork's efforts!


Good idea. I think @sircork's experience was very thought provoking. We all need to find that balance between investing in the community, but also making efforts to invest and look after ourselves.

That dude has a big heart and it sounds like someone needs to take him out for a drink and a hug
