1. Steemit Inc MD talks about the Tron Partnership

Steemit Inc Managing Director Elizabeth Powell has given an exclusive first interview to CoinTelegraph about the recent partnership with Tron.

In the interview @elipowell expresses enthusiasm for the partnership saying it is "incredibly exciting" and she "expects Tron to provide the resources needed to grow the Steemit ecosystem".

Eli went on to say...

“We’ve been in a holding pattern due to a financial lack of resources. We’ve always had roadmaps but we couldn’t execute them. But just last week, Steemit was able to launch its new communities feature, which allows users to take advantage of community features similar to those on Reddit. We’ve been working on this feature for three years. This just shows how fast Justin Sun has worked to help us launch communities.”

On the subject of the Soft Fork, Steemit Inc's MD said...

I understand that Steemit has held the power for so long and that the soft fork was a reaction that came too soon.

She wrapped up the interview by mentioning that the planned Town Hall meeting due to take place on 6 March between Justin Sun and the top 50 witnesses will likely take place on DLive which is now owned by Tron as well...

Interesting community - good luck with building it up.

Thanks... Mentions like yours are certainly helpful in community building! 😘

thanks for the updates.. especially pleased to see Eli saying something positive.. missed that one.. will check it out now <3

Yes, interesting to read that article.

Steemit Inc MD talks about the Tron Partnership

It's a pity that this article contains countless errors and inaccuracies! Add to that permanent confusion between Steem and Steemit.
Although the journalist promised to correct the countless mistakes we reported to her, she did nothing about it. Pure amateurism!

It was interesting to note that the headline was changed to "Steemit Managing Director on Partnership With Tron — Exclusive".

The url of the post gives away the original headline...

Thanks for include Rada Quest project in your news!

You are welcome.
