Thank you I like lists.

Holybread is meaningless fun, I'm in the top half of scores so far.

I appreciate the list of TRON/STEEMIT acquisition posts, important to know where this is taking us. By us I mean all the individual account holders, bloggers and steem holders here, which by the stats on redfish to whales, is not very many.

A dying species near extinction, or a thriving few elite fortunate high flyers?

Congrats on the Holybread progress!

It will be interesting to see where all the current developments lead to for the 'general' users of Steem...

I agree that Holybread is for the fun and you will not come rich with it.


Thank you for all the valuable information and for including my contest:) Much appreciated:)

You are welcome.
