I can't believe that the busiest brain in Steemland, @ned saw Steemjet!
In honor of this momentus occasion, we must hold a contest (1k steem in prizes):
You may choose one of 2 memes:
- Uncle Ned's Bass Music Remix
- Uncle Ned's Blind Date with the Special Advisor to the Governor of Akwa Ibom, Nigeria, Mrs. Meflyn Awana, who just asked our boss,
if Steemjet would establish Blockchain Tool School which is a crypto teaching program for all ages.
(Mrs. Meflyn Awana – Special Advisor to the Governor of Akwa Ibom, Nigeria)(SF1)
@ned (SF1) - Special Bass
(maybe we should send Ned some gears to fatten that tone, gain some weight if you are going to sing man, do it for the tone!)
Ned's biggest problem certainly ain't finding the perfect date, it's finding a classic tube amp with dying tubes to give him the world's most perfect tone. I have these samples Ned! I am a regular Bootsy Collins! Actually I sound more like the Italian announcer, but I got those samples!
Ned's problem is that he can not decide which of the zillion ideas he should utilize to improve the invention that hopefully is Danvinci Tesla's electricity jackpot:
and hopefully not his failed attempt at free energy:
Who knows exactly how many more back end blockchain breakthroughs we may see in our lifetime. The bottom line, as BTC has shown, is that if you can build something useful, robust, and unique, then people will use it. Ned, I wish you luck in automating your steem robot. I know that the solution is just a matter of math, so good luck on the concentration and focus. Think in the void like Bruce:
If I told you that the first word that I heard when I clicked forward in that video was "Bruce" would you believe me? It is the absolute freakiest truth. To enter the void, you really just need to remove the ego, but who would ever believe an old Nigerian scammer like me, anyway. Jesus, I'm joking! Where did everyone's sense of humor go? Are things really that bad? Who is the competition? Dan? Really? You mean the guy developing and advertising DPOS as the next best thing since sliced POW bread?
Now that BTC/LTC have won the currency war, Steem's pivot to the smart contract space is more than necessary. Crypto kittens are KILLING us! But Ned has the nearly impossible tasks of automating the onboarding process and future proofing Steem while simultaneously adding SMT tech. This is very difficult, so I say, "so what" if Ned dumps. It is still in the best interest of Ned Nakamoto to grow the business as he blasts us with assparagus and cuttlefish in (notice the Apple logo in the upper left hand corner of the screen, such marketing)
("Hodl on Ned! I belieeeeve in youuuuuu!")
a South Park Centipede!
The moral of this story Ned is that simply:
And I don't want to be a star, because my neighborhood ain't right. But for the sake of publicity, this is a great way for nobody to hear us.
(Play both videos simultaneously but turn the top one down and the bottom one up)
(go ahead, I'll wait while humming "you don't have to be a staaaar baby")
Where I live we can't just drink the water.
Nobody wants to hear about charity, they just want to simply talk about solutions
with their State Governors!
(give it a minute to load)
Where I come from, a quarter million Steem is major bling
Sooo, let's get down to business, the first problem I have with Steem is that my animated gif does not blink in my blog page (not cool man).
You must get the:
"What's up with TPAG Ned?!"
"What's a TPANG?"
"The Trending Page Animated Gif feature, first in the world on a blockchain mang!"
GET OFF YOUR KETOGENIC ASS AND MAKE SNEAK CODE ME SOME ANIMATED GIFABILITY ON MY BLOG PAGE!
Smart Media Tokens?
"ARE WE THERE YET?"
"ARE WE THERE YET?"
"ARE WE THERE YET?"
Animated Gifs On Trending/Listing Pages?
"ARE WE THERE YET?"
Steemjet - Dude, just take a break from all that stress and surround yourself with SUPERSTARS!
Welcome to Steemjet Records!
You are hired, we totally need a bass player on Space Force 1. You get 1000 steem cash bonus up front or 6000 steem delegation for the next 6 months. Or, of course, you could be a superhero as well as a superstar, and turn down your salary.
So now, maybe I can ask you about something else:
Will the Steem blockchain need to be pruned in the future so that and all this wonderful art goes away?
Who cares then right?!
If nobody like @gutzygwin here,
was around to broadcast us, then we did not deserve to survive as a community anyway. (hint for guitar players: "turn this one up to eleven")
Blockchain's incentive for humans to seek free energy for virtue of currency, gives Steem a chance be the first to solve a "social" aspect of the currency market itself, the process has begun, it simply grows and shrinks over time. We are just a bunch of math students looking for the answer to crypto community unification:
There is just one more problem with Steem that I want to discuss with you Ned. Other than scaling, SMT's, and automated onboarding, my biggest complaint with Steem is.
Can anyone guess?
I'm waiting, waiting ...waaaaaaiting
How long is this post really going to last in life when it takes 3 days to download to my cell phone which is the tool (for lack) of choice for most of the Space Force. How long will our links remain viewable? How immutable are we really? How long will our tag sustain long term viewability?
Are we really eternal? Or will a less automatic second layer solution be required for infinite immutability?
What I'm saying is, pitch steem to the late great Robin Williams.....
(hit me with the first thing that comes to mind!)
(and make it funny)
Actually, just distill your pitch down to a Mitch Hedberg 1-liner
Steem - pump your personality
(because I am more of a blackjack player than dealer)
Steem - pimp your personality
That's what you need to do Ned, by sending @jesse12 your best high definition bass/vocals/whatever recording samples (isolated tracks only please) so that we can place you on the fast-track to superstardom. I heard you dig Mozart, so we would mix your bass with something like this,
mixed with a little Steemjet,
and of course, a little more STJ baby.
But as you can see, we have too many open projects to mention. I'm sure you know what it's like.
Steem was a wonderful host for this year's Steemjet World Cup.
The real Satoshi can retire because his job is done. All other chains better have developers, funding, or a community. Bitcoin is functional and effective money with an auomatically functioning community. Who owns bitcoin? Everybody who can get their virtual hands on some! These kids need to realize that as BTC/LTC approaches full legal tender status, Steem will see a rise in value and @ned would be wise to hire an army
If there was really a creator on our side, then we would have had a chance to capture some of this next money/currency adoption wave (3) that became inevitable when BTC began forking profusely while LTC and DGB simply continued improving traditional POW tech. In the beginning, there was only BTC, so it absorbed most of crypto wave 1 (value/money). Ethereum absorbed much of crypto wave 2 (utility) as more people wanted smart contracts and decentralized initial coin offerings.
This is why @ned is developing the Steem Machine Tokenizer, so we can capitalize on waves 2 and 4. Wave 3 echoes wave 1 just as wave 4 will echo wave 2. Cheaper and faster proof of work (POW) implementations are being developed by LTC/DGB for crypto wave 3 (frictionless currency). Waves 1 and 3 will be larger than waves 2 and 4 simply because money is our most useful unedible tool. But if we can ride this next wave correctly, then who knows where we will end up.
Deflationary currencies (BTC/LTC/DGB/VTC) need fees to pay miners when block rewards eventually reach zero. Therefore, adoption (who owns your crypto?) (answer = everybody) is the most important aspect of a successful cryptocurrency. Someday, POW miners will make more off transaction fees than they will from mining rewards, so there must be enough users, or the miners leave the network grinding to a halt. If NANO can function without any mining incentives or transaction fees, then the top few POW chains will easily be able to survive in the future on fees alone because, by then, POW will be a robust software with a tiny attack surface requiring zero maintenance. Energy and data storage will be cheap because humans love to learn.
DGB can function as a frictionless currency without a layer 2 solution, and they are working on identity features. The main POW chains will be capturing not only the money/currency market but some of the identity/security market as well. Any feature that DGB puts out into the market will be the most secure version of it even though it will not be the fastest. This is the route that KMD is taking with smart contracts. Slow development, but building securely along the lines of existing known robust POW tech. EOS/ETH/KMD are also attempting to capture broader sections of the smart contract market:
ETH with its turing complete flexibility.
EOS with its speed and capacity.
KMD with atomic swaps, maximum BTC-linked security, and language agnostic API
Many other platform coins are attempting to capture a slice of the blockchain utility space. This topic could run on for days, so I am just going to go back to the party. A lot of you received delegation and said that you wished that you had received liquid steem instead. Well, abracadabra, your wish is granted!
All new Space Force compensation packages will now come with a 1/6 cash out option that can be exercised anytime within the first 30 days.
Your position with the company never goes away even after your contract ends. Steemjet for life is not just a subliminal message:
Most new initiatives will be paid in cash because we are pivoting from a delegated steem power based capital structure to liquid steem based to conserve our time which is our most precious resource.

This one by @anyadan in currently in 2nd place (300)
I will end this contest and judge it for the boss because his time is most valuable right now:
Look at how they do it!
Steem may be a financial investment, but Steemjet is a social investment.
@mrprecious and @emmycapable, your voices are incredible considering that you recorded them on cheap microphones. I am sending you each 1000 steem to buy this exact ribbon vocal mic which is magic in this particular application:
and this compressor:
And your voice will sound as silky as Rebbie's
And we never mentioned the Faceboook connection once, that's a whole other post!
So tell me Ned, isn't Steemjet the freshest thing you ever seen?
