The Steem News @ 14 March 2020 - News from the heartlands of Steem...


Another day, another deadlock.

It's a 10 all score draw again in the great Steem v Tron Battle of the Witnesses.

The crack troops and foot soldiers of Steem are still slogging it out against the Sunshine Boys on the frontlines of Twitter, in the trenches of Telegram and in the no mans land of Steem.

Meanwhile back in the heartlands the ordinary folk of Steem are going about their daily life making posts, filming vlogs, playing games, entering contests and chatting in Discord.

From those heartlands Steem News today brings updates about the TripleA Witness, Cryptobrewmaster, the Essentials to Steem starters guide, Steem-Engine performance charts, Steemleo earners, and a farewell to Steemhouse Publishing.

1. Steem & Tron - the latest

It's even stevens on the witness front.

Despite some shifting of votes and some big juicy power ups neither side is coming close to the magic super majority number of 17.

The Steem OGs are holding slots #1 - #8 through @good-karma, @roelandp, @blocktrades, @ausbitbank, @anyx, @yabapmatt, @gtg and @steempress. @themarkymark is wearing the #10 shirt on today's team sheet and @cervantes has lept up 14 places to join the top squad at #16.

Team Tron is holding the other top 20 witness slots to make it a straight 50/50 split today...

As mentioned yesterday new Tron front man David Roebuck popped up unannounced on an MSP Town Hall last night to introduce himself and to explain that he and @elipowell are working flat out on a proposal that will offer a win-win for everyone.

David signed off with an offer to come on again over the weekend. Nothing has been confirmed, but it is possible he might join @aggroed's show tomorrow night.

In the meantime if you would like to hear David, @r0nd0n has put out the recording of the Town Hall which also featured @andrarchy talking about the new Social Blockchain Working Group that he announced yesterday...

Steem Foundation update

The Steem Foundation has put forward a proposed roadmap to help move Steem forward...

The Foundation would like to provide space and a forum for a committee comprised of consensus witnesses, larger stakeholders and representatives of the non-English language communities who often feel unheard.

This committee would be encouraged to discuss and reach understanding on how issues on the blockchain impact them and the challenges faced in implementing suggested solutions. It’s through mutual communication and willingness to listen that we will build a strong and sustainable Steem we all love....

Thank you for the feature @pennsif. Keep updated the Steem blockchain with valuable updates!


First time that I have seen your steem news posts, good job!


information and summary that is very useful for me. With information like this article, all information about problems that occur here can be read clearly. And I hope the chaos situation at Steemit will end soon and get the solution, so that we as active users at Steemit will be more comfortable in writing posts and get benefits for us. I apologize if any of my words are wrong in writing this comment. thank you


I am expecting that some of the Steem events may not happen as planned. I have booked a hotel for SteemcampUK, but it is not a big deal and I may be up in Leicester anyway.


Thanks for sharing this beautiful news plus the extra creativity.
