The past is the past, but the future is Steem.
We may have been quiet over the past few weeks, but the team here at Steemit, Inc. has not been idle.
We have been busy gathering ideas, talking to people, discussing strategies, and making plans for the next phase in the growth of Steem.
Now we are ready to announce…
100 Days of Steem
This exciting new program is designed to take Steem forward to the next level.
Under the 100 Days of Steem project we will be making a new announcement every single day for the next one hundred days.
These announcements will include new developments, new initiatives, new delegations, new projects, new appointments, new apps - all designed to build the Steem ecosystem and move it forward.
Day 1 : The Steem Community Hub
To kick off, we are announcing a new Steem Community Discord.
This will be the hub for our activities going forward.
We will be using this Discord to hold meetings, to discuss ideas and invite suggestions, to answer questions and most importantly to stay connected with the Steem Community.
We want to make this Community Hub as inclusive as possible, with channels for all major language groups and interests.
The Discord is being set up now and will be opened to the community in the coming days.
Everyone who wants to play a positive part in moving Steem forward will be welcome to join in.
To help us make the most of the Discord we are looking for members of the community to help run it as admins, moderators and developers.
If you would like to get involved with this please comment below in the first instance giving a few details of how you would like to help, any language or technical skills you can offer, a little about your background on Steem and your Discord account name.
We may not be able to offer roles to everyone initially, but we will do our best to accommodate as many people as possible that would like to help.
These roles will be voluntary but there may be a few treats and surprises along the way for active participants!
The Next Steps...
We realize we are living through difficult times.
With the current Covid-19 pandemic the world is facing a crisis on a scale that has not been witnessed since World War II.
Steemit, Inc., along with the Tron Foundation, wants to play its part in supporting its loyal community.
There are of course limitations to what a social blockchain can do.
But we believe Steem is a special blockchain with a special community.
Over the coming days, as part of our 100 Days of Steem project, we will be announcing a number of initiatives to help us get through this together as a community.
I look forward to seeing you all again tomorrow for our next announcement.
Managing Director of Steemit, Inc.
