Dear Steem Community
Since 10 days, the @steemingcurators Witness node is successfully running the up-to-date version of the Steem blockchain. The first block our Witness produced was at height 44,531,583 and contained 5 transactions. Here you can see the transactions on the Steem Blockexplorer Steemscan, a tool by Witness @futureshock. https://steemscan.com/block/44531583
Serving the Steem Blockchain by providing real computing power, was something we find essential. That we love Steem, and want its users and holders to do well, is likely known by now. We weren't expecting such positive responses when we first started our new adventure. As tons of support from the community came in, the connection with Steem became even stronger.
When Steemingcurators started, our vision for the project was to help Steemit with creating engagement, highlighting other projects and dapps, and to work closely with other communities to promote Steem Exclusive content.
Then on a sunny morning, the idea 💡 of MusicForSteem was born. THIS IS IT. Well, that's what we thought. The idea is great: Create a contest about something we all love, that unites people, and has the potential to attract a TON of money and users to the network. MusicForSteem 🎶, the world's largest live music contest on a blockchain.
When you see it, well, then you see it.
We would LOVE to spend all our work time in Steemit. Grow the project to massive success. And like in ANY business, we will need to spend money to make money. Here you can read the vision for Music For Steem. We have requested information and advice from a variety of connoisseurs in the Music Industry and legal space.
We do not expect users and professionals to work for us for cents or several dollars. Paying them with upvote money is only sustainable if you can keep the SteemPower for a certain LONG time. To make it a success, we will need to raise money to pay for professional assistance. As the great saying goes:
If you pay peanuts, you get monkey's
Steemingcurators has a community on Discord with 150 members and is growing rapidly by the day. We incentivize people to engage with other Steemians and get support in return. Join our discord channel to get more info!
Steemingcurators will keep hosting contests and challenges and hopes to work closely with the new community curators, witnesses and developers to grow Steem, block by block.
The past week, we had a holiday with family in our home countries. Due to COVID, we haven't seen them for quite some time so our focus on Steem was very limited. From this week we have a normal schedule again, so stay tuned for BIG UPDATES - JOB OFFERS - HOST YOUR OWN CONTEST (all this week on @musicforsteem & @steemingcurators!
Thank you so much for ALL your support! You are the reason why we STEEM! Thanks, you guys are amazing!
