Hi @pennsif

That was a lot of news to digest. Exciting days my friend!

Lots more going on than I anticipated. I thought there might only be enough news for a weekly edition...

Thanks for the mention @pennsif! And thanks for doing again the Steem News!

You are welcome. Hope the Steem Help Community goes well.
