Even though I couldn't make it this year I am watching the live streams/recordings like a hawk.
It's the first time I am not there but I do know what it's like to be there and I'm sure everyone there is having a blast.
Even from a distance, I'm extremely happy with what I have seen so far presentation-wise.
There where some great presentations from Steemit Inc. where they share their vision for Steem and Steemit.com.
It's well worth the watch here:
I talk about it more in my vlog.
What a massive contrast that Steemit talk was to the one Ned did last year.
I'm sad I couldn't be there this year, especially when I saw familiar faces in the audience. But I feel much more optimistic now about there being a Steemfest 5 than I felt about the future after Krakow. Many people were saying there wouldn't be another one.
Engagement is well down from last year and the majority of people I interacted with are no longer here. As a result I've lost motivation to post but that's OK. As an investor I feel the overall picture for Steem is rosey and I'm maintaining contact with many people I met here.
Hopefully we'll all meet again at Steemfest 5!!! 😍
I am quite excited about SMT's when finally businesses would use it and make steem demand get into higher levels pushing its price up. Thank for the developers that is continually making such improvements for the benefit of humanity in general both the early investors to the future users of steem. @exyle :D
I am truly sad that I couldn’t be at the @steemfest either due to a surgery last week but watching YouTube right now gives me that feeling that I am right there. It would have been the 4th time and I always remember our amsterdam tour together. Sending much love to all steemians !!! I miss you all !!!
Very exciting. I am actually shocked that you re not there. I guess we all need to prioritize things though and I have no doubt you had a very good reason. I wish I could have went, but if Poland was a stretch, Thailand is even more of one! I am very envious of all the people that were able to attend. I wonder how much representation the States get at events like this.
I watched it as well this morning and it had a similar effect on me.
