There will now be a period of several months where witnesses, developers and anyone interested are encouraged to set up a testnet and investigate and experiment with SMTs to help catch any bugs in the code.

There is no target date given for when the hardfork will take place to move the SMTs onto the mainnet, but the Steemit Inc team will be giving a presentation at SteemFest 4 with more details...

Wow, how can it be 200 already? Well done to you for keeping it up and providing a great service. There's lots I hear about here first. It will be interesting to see how it goes with SMTs. I can understand why they want an extended period of testing. They cannot afford to mess up.

Thanks Steve. Yes the SMTs are going to be a big one that needs to go well with no major hiccups hopefully.

Thank you for the shoutout,

I've been watching the videos's and they are put together and arranged very nicely, it must take some work to get guests and keep everything fresh.

Great report and updates post, thank you

Thank you.

Glad to see you've kept on keeping on here, and appear to be doing quite well in Steem terms!



Great to see you back on Steem, keep creating!

Congrats for the awesome milestone of the 200th edition of Steem News, @pennsif!

I check it out every single day! Thank you for taking the time to put it together!
