Just a heads up that this is rough notes of everything they talked about. As fast as i could I wrote or closely paraphrased what they said.
I did not write my own opinion in this post.
At least i tried hard to make it not my opinion... just notes
Also plenty of spelling mistakes as i went fast
Called it a Collaboration
Partnered with tron
Ned sold all his shares in the company
Justin made $150 steem and a lot of comments (justin wasn't impressed)
Ned was a big fan of reddit and dan was a blockchain engineer
Cryptocurrency could be a point system like reddit karma
Ned wanted to focus on communities and make financial tools for those communtities
"Finance and social media should go together"
He's pimping SMT to justin and tron users.
Steem blockchain has evolved more than steemit.com
He's throwing DAN under the bus a little... saying they're not using the EOS blockchain.
"Moving on for personal reasons."
A couple other companies he's working on privately
He wants steemit to continue on and thrive
Just has a lot of vision and openmindedness, resources and communication skills
"Excited to see where the ship sales with Justin at the healm"
