The Steem News @ 15 January 2020

in #steemlast year

NFTs have arrived on Steem.

There are also updates on Hivemind X, OpenSeed and the JAHM token.

And there are additions to the new Diary Dates section as well as regular updates on the Steem Foundation and the Steem Proposal System...

1. NFTs have arrived on Steem

NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) are now available on Steem-Engine.

Steem-Engine founder @aggroed explains...

NFTs unlock the ability of the Steem Blockchain to track anything in the world individually and tie the tokenization to a global market. I see wonderful and beautiful things for Steem and Steem Engine!

The goal is for people to be able to trade anything here on Steem through Steem-Engine. We've just opened up a huge toolset for people to use to do that by allowing the tokens and thus products they represent to be tracked individually. It's a big step for the Engine and a big step for the chain.

2. Hivemind X available for testing new features

@imwatsi has set up a fork of Hivemind - Hivemind X.

It's a testbed to develop new Hivemind features, run them in the wild and see what happens.

He is looking for partners who are willing to run a Hivemind X node and make API endpoints available to front-ends...
