The Steem News @ 30 August 2019

TravelFeed breaks new ground with EasySignUp and EasyLogin.

The Steem Proposal System is growing well and become clearer.

There is a SteemFest update, a DTube application and a Reviewhunt guide.

And also news from Steemleo, Forum, BuildTeam and

As well as high prize contests from @ecoinstant and @theycallmedan.

1. TravelFeed introduces EasySignUp and EasyLogin

Steem based travel app @travelfeed has broken new ground by introducing a much simplified signup and login procedure to attract and help new users. They are also offering free accounts to travel writers who would like to join the platform...

Starting today, TravelFeed is the first dApp based on the Steem blockchain to offer free, easy account creation and login. New users who might be unfamiliar with crypto keys, or the cryptic processes which secure them, won’t even blink an eye through our easy onboarding process we're calling EasySignUp.

2. The Steem Proposal System...

The Steem Proposal System is progressing well.

After @blocktrades removed its vote from @gtg's Return Proposal to lower the acceptance threshold @inertia's Documentation proposal has moved to the top of the list.

This means @inertia will begin to receive payments from the @steem.dao fund when his proposal goes active on 1 September. However it will be a few more days before he receives his full daily request of 130 SBD as the SPS daily budget has so far only reached 70 SBD. It is currently growing by about 20 SBD per day.

Who has voted on each proposal can be seen by clicking on the proposal title in this Github list.

With the removal of the large @blocktrades vote the threshold set by the Return Proposal now stands at just under 7.5 million SP. However more votes may be removed from the Return Proposal to allow further proposals into the funding zone.

The next proposals in line by @dlux-io and @thecryptodrive are both on about 2.25 million SP of votes.

In a comment on yesterday's Steem News developer @gtg also confirmed that there is no limit to how many proposals each Steem account can vote on. The SPS interfaces also allow votes to be removed.

A few other clarifications are now coming in for the SPS...

  • only owned SteemPower counts for votes not delegated SP
  • Steemit Inc employees will be voting on proposals
  • votes can proxied for SPS voting.

This last pointed regarding proxies has been explained more fully by witness @therealwolf...

@dmitrydao has now added Keychain support for voting to his SteemProposals portal...
