Steem on Saturday

An assortment of Steem related topics for you to skim and respond to if you see fit - Account claims, Splinterlands, SMT / SE / Steempress, Price, Engagement.......


Account Claims

Earlier today I was asked by a user to find out how many free/instant accounts they had created over the past couple of months. The answer was 38, putting them in the top 20 account creators via claimed account tokens since the 1st September last year. The top 20 are below, along with the number of pending claimed account tokens they have in reserve:

Looking at the stores, there seem to be plenty of pending_account_claims in reserve. And checking on the total number of account tokens yet to be used to create an account, I think we could easily cope with another bull market or two.

At 17:20 UCT, there are 745,789 pending claimed accounts - plenty?


Splinterlands

I suspect that the card market cap has topped out for now.

With STEEM bouncing along 11/13 cents for months, I decided to sell some of my least used cards and move the STEEMP /DEC over to Steem Power. I'm not sure if others have been doing the same but with STEEM looking a little brighter and being many multiples away from 'just' a dollar, I see more potential for gains with STEEM over cards. That being said, I'm still holding a couple of fairly strong splinters, and was lucky enough to be rewarded this card at the end of last season.



Rightly or wrongly, I sold it right away and was paid in DEC. The DEC was sold for STEEMP, and the STEEMP was withdrawn to my main account and powered up. Just over 300 STEEM (around .13/.14$ at the time), and time will tell if that was wise or not.


SE / SMT / @steempress

A week or so ago I noticed a blog on https://stemgeeks.net/ that had been posted with Steempress. It wasn't the most awesome piece of work, but I decided to take a look at the link outside of steemgeeks.net and found the Steempress widget.



At the time STEM of SE fame was selling for .09 STEEM, and my vote was worth about 35 STEM. I wondered if Steempress had plans to incorporate SE tokens into their widget.....



That's that then, and you can be fairly sure that the SMT widget will be for SMT tokens only also. So what comes of the Tribe tokens? I think that the ones issued for content and via curation will need to move, or fear being replaced. DEC, for example, should be fine, but STEM would (and I have been told is) need to switch - then they could be present on the Steempress and SMT widgets, bumping up the total payout.



Steempeak leading the way on this one


STEEM Price

Go on then, I'll bite for a bit of discussion over the recent price movement.















I'm happy playing the long game and not too concerned over short-term swings as I'm not trading at all right now. It is however, nice to see a jump in price, especially when you've been selling your body SE tokens and cards, and buying STEEM with fiat.

The chart on the first image in this section, using my expert price analysis technique of drawing a line across a previous longtime average, gave a price that I thought would been to be surpassed for the turnaround to commence. 16 cents was the number I've been looking out for, and the break/test yesterday was nice to see.

Of course, STEEM could well slam through 16 cents in the next half hour and serve me some humble pie (I'll be buying more though if it does).


And finally, Engagement

If you haven't seen, @misterengagement is back, and can be summoned by those holding 1000 ENGAGE in their SE wallet. At present, 50 ENGAGE can be rewarded to the writer of hopefully the most engaging comment on a particular post. Along with the tokens will come a vote from Mr E, and if I have enough VP (80%), a vote from myself.

In addition to that, #OCD (as per the comment on this post) will be looking to reward the original commentator and the comment curator, if the comments are up to scratch.

At present, their are no restrictions to the amount of times you can call @misterengagement each day, and so I ask that https://steemworld.org/@misterengagement is kept an eye by everyone issuing the tokens. 50 ENGAGE is a 50% vote and so 20 50% votes each day in total, by everyone would be ideal.

It would be awesome if (using https://www.steemrewarding.com/ as it votes comments) we got a couple of people trailing @misterengagement's vote, but that is not going to happen unless the account is voting on top notch comments - not one liners 8 comments down a thread.

Anyway, please issue the ENGAGE!


Got any Steem gossip / news for me?

Did you get $68 for it? I find Legendary Gold's hard to move.

Nope. There was an offer at $51 and so I took it - the spread seems quite large on the more expensive cards.

An offer, on PeakMonsters?

Yeah on Peakmonsters. If I'm keen to offload I'll go there as they have the best buy price presented - on SM you are just undercutting the others on sale and hoping for the best.

In my case $1 is the best price for a...

I will have to keep waiting..

Yeah I think you can hold on that!

There are no offers for this one I have....

i did see the price get to $0.160, it may be an early sign, of growth. I have noticed over the yer so far that Steem price has flirted with the 0.15 range a few times so it is nice to see it flirting beyond that fifteen cent range on occasion. I still hope that when it does start to trend up, it is a slow steady growth and not some temporary price spike. A month at the 0.15-0.17 range would be nice, a one to two cent improvement, then it can start the double rate improvements over the following month like March to a price of twenty to twenty two cents. Slow steady growth to start the run. After April and American tax day, let the race begin back to one dollar.

After April and American tax day, let the race begin back to one dollar.

Yeah, this could play a factor, Bitcoins halving, and other wider news. Ideally, SMT / communities help those that arrive stick. Either way, we'll still be around :)

No plans to go any where yet, I still have 2 and a half years to go for the 5 year mark, then the real learning will start. It could be a very exciting summer this year.

Always nice to get a little shot in the arm with some price spikes.

Sure is. No beer this month and so i'm looking for alternative buzz :)

All the trading posts today just fuel my feeling that I'm missing out. It's all still so confusing to me. 😢

Congrats on the GFL! Sounds like perfect timing. Well done. 😁

Don't worry, you have Steem Power :) I've not traded at all either.

Hopefully good timing - I've been holding onto a Dragon for over a year and all it's done has gone down!

and move the STEEMP /DEC over to Steem Power.

That counts as trading in mt world. 😂

I've haven't monitored the value of my cards. I just assume theu are worth more than I paid for them and they will be worth even more in the future.

There are soooooo many moving parts - sterling, dollars, euros, Steem, Stemp, sbd, DEC, not to mention litecoin and btc that I've used in the past to buy Steem.

I tried to buy some DEC this morning but it kept going into pending and I couldn't for the life of me work out why. Then later I did the exact same thing and the buy went through.

I'm hoping that one day the penny will drop on all this stuff and I'll be able to "ah, I get it"!

Looking good :)

The price will sometimes show .00485 but actually be .0048500001 - just bid a little higher but for the amount you want and that'll do it :)

It is going to be interesting when SMTs proper are released. I do think many will switch, especially if the configurations have more variables to tweak. I wonder what the market will look like.

Steem price is still so low, but it is fun to play a bit and get back into the groove of what has been a near trading halt for 2 years.

The market will be interesting - SE tokens not had a good month it seems.

I've had a 3 year + trading halt on a couple of stocks - very frustrating!

Ah, a nice catch up on some steemy matters! Nice card you netted there,I think it was a good move to sell!!

Welcome home Boomy!

I've still got a few few of them and so thought this one could go.

Are you sampling some homelands brew this eve?

I am, in fact I am just starting the first just now!! Woot woot!!

I will have to sort out my collection. I will probably sell them all cos I'm crazy that way but I don't have that many great ones anyway

I'll look after them for you :)

11 out of 10 booms for not tasting like foreign pishwater!

I am shield tempted to give them high marks just for being not that foul stuff I was drinking! Must try to be objective. Or fuck it, just go with the flow!!

I hope you are having one on a fine Saturday night!

I'm living my beers through you until February - no booze this month for me! :O

Oh noes!! You will be doing veganuary next!! ;0D

:O Vaginuary?

Hi @clove71 aka, the Queen of Steemmonsters!

Thank you very much!

I'm happy to be involved and cannot wait to see how things progress!

I'm still waiting for that "free" golden legendary.

I will have to admit I got an golden epic which was nice however.

I’ll get myself some more engage tokens soon. I want to see more engagement here, it’s one of the only things I see still lacking. That and new users. I had an idea for an initiative targeting ex steemians and trying to see if we could get any back by explaining the changes to steem and showing them the community is still going strong. I posted about it but no one noticed #bbyfs
