Will you join us today to hear what is new on Steem in April 2018 during the Witness Forum on MSP Waves Radio at http://mspwaves.com/ because we begin with a thirty minute presentation from the Content Director at Steemit Inc followed by witnesses reviewing many of our top opportunities and challenges on the Steem blockchain? For getting an inside look at what we are doing here and how some of us working on Steem full time are thinking, we think you will really enjoy this! New to Steem? The main idea we are sharing on Steem is that OUR VOICE HAS VALUE especially when we share our stories, photos, videos, and live streams. Instead of sharing on other social media websites and blogs where we help companies become rich and get spammed with ads in return for our contribution, on Steem we each have a chance to decide what posts are most valuable and participate every day in building the Steem blockchain. Learn more at https://jerrybanfield.com/steem/ What is a Witness? The short version is that witnesses on Steem are the block producers within our Delegated Proof of Stake (DPOS). In DPOS we vote on witnesses with our stake instead of wasting huge amounts of energy and computing power with Proof of Work mining like on cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. To learn more, will you read https://steemit.com/steemit/@gmichelbkk/what-is-a-steem-witness-how-to-vote-and-why because our votes for witnesses determine our future together here on Steem?

At around 12 minutes, @andrarchy points out that our blockchain on most days processes more transactions than all the others combined as seen at http://www.blocktivity.info/. At around 18 minutes, @andrarchy talks about user retention and improving the sign up process along with how Steemit Inc. sees the role in developing Steem. After hearing all the witnesses share our passions and opinions on opportunities and challenges on Steem, what leaves me feeling good is the commitment we all have for helping build community on Steem. At around 32 minutes, @andrarchy discusses the intention to have Steem be a unifying identity with many applications on the blockchain like @dlive without steemit.com being the primary focus. Witnesses begin introductions and discussion around 36 minutes leaving me with a warm and fuzzy feeling at the end where we are all committed to serving and growing Steem together!
