The Steem News @ 6 March 2020 - All the other news... & the Justin Sun Town Hall meeting at 2am UTC

4개월 전

Due to the last few editions of Steem News focusing almost solely on the current Steem / Tron issues, this is an extra edition to bring an update on all the other developments that are going on around the Steem platform.

There will be another edition in a few hours to catch up on the Steem/Tron news following the open Town Hall meeting with Justin Sun that is taking place at 2am UTC.

In this edition there is news and updates about Reviewhunt & Steemhunt, the Steem Foundation Proposed Roadmap, APPICS, MonsterMarket, SteemCommunities.net, SteemKnights, 3Speak, and Sonic Groove Live.

And there are more additions to the Diary Dates section as well as regular updates on the Steem Foundation and the Steem Proposal System, another Featured Contest, and an expanded Community Watch with new communities to check out.

Thanks - it was the first thing I watched today!

Thanks for this update @pennsif, crammed with useful information as always, and yes given all the Tron drama lately very wise to separate that from all the good stuff going on around Steemit.

·

Yes, it is easy to miss all the good things going on around the blockchain...

Excellent non-partisan news reporting on the STEEM happenings as always. Great job!
