The Steem News @ 12 March 2020 - Steem is a hive of activity... but there's no change on the Tron front

https://pennsif.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/steem-news-2-454x278.png

Amidst the turmoil on the markets, it's gone rather quiet on the Steem / Tron front.

The top 20 witnesses remain locked in a 50/50 standoff, and there are no public meetings in the diary.

But there's still plenty going on around Steem and today's Steem News has updates about Steem-Engine Explorer, SteemCity, RORGAME, DLike, Sonic Groove Live, SteemKnights, DBLOG, @cadawg's new witness, and volunteer opportunities with The Greens.



1. Steem & Tron - the latest

There has been little movement in the Steem / Tron debate today.

On the witness front although have been a few 'big vote' changes the stalemate in the Top 20 continues.

With the loss of the @proxy.token vote @someguy123 dropped out of the top 20, falling all the way to #31. A sizeable vote from @payroll helped bring @steempress and @cervantes back into top slots.

It's now a straight 50/50 split in the top 20. The 'original' Steem witnesses now hold #1 - #9 through respectively @good-karma, @blocktrades, @roelandp, @anyx, @ausbitbank, @yabapmatt, @gtg, @themarkymark and @steempress, with @cervantes coming in at #11.

The other 10 places in the top 20 are being held by the Tron backed witnesses.

Neither side has the required super-majority of 17 to push through a hard fork...

    Steem is cheap again if anyone wants to boost their account. Of course the state of things may make life hard for some, but I'll keep doing what I can around here. If you have to self-isolate then it could be an opportunity for more engagement.

  • @nathen007

    Thanks for the mention @pennsif :-)

  • @cadawg

    Thanks for the boost, @pennsif! Much appreciated!
