I have been on Steem since July 2016. While I tried to maintain a personal blog about mainstream (and less mainstream) ideas in particle physics, I have also co-founded the SteemSTEM project and contributed to it as much as I could (which is not as much as I wanted).
From a simple curation project, SteemSTEM has now the goal of offering, to those with the greatest knowledge of STEM subjects, a way to directly communicate about their work, without having to rely on middleman journalists. Whilst we are still far from being there, we are slowly getting there, one blog at a time ^^
A lot changed on Steem during the last month and it is time to move forward. SteemSTEM decided to say ‘no’ to a centralised platform. I decided to say ‘no’ too.
Goodbye Steem and let’s meet on Hive
A transition period is currently on-going, and we will move slowly move all our activities from Steem to Hive. To summarise quickly what is going:
- We are currently rebranding. Any idea (different form HiveSTEM) is welcome. See here.
- We will use HiveSTEM as a temporary brand name. Please don't like it too much as it is meant to disappear.
- Our app is migrating to the new chain at the time I write. This may take more time than expected, but please be assured that I am heavily working on this.
- Curation will probably continue on both chain for a few days, maximum for a couple of weeks, before moving entirely to Hive.
- We are very unsure about what to do with our witness, that has never been strong enough to be above top 70. Please do not hesitate to raise your opinion on this. Should we shut it down?
