Good day Steemian welcome to today's Steem price update for 18/3/2020.
I have been posting the Steem price update since almost the very beginning of Steemit.com.
Many have came here to discuss the daily Steem price's and changes for over 3 years now.
I also want to mention incase your wondering that when something doesn't seem normal from the other regular "Price Updates" that the daily Steem price posts do occasionally change their format from time to time.
But regardless of changes we will carry on as usual and by this I mean knowing the price of Steem as it's important for your daily plan or strategy.
And even if you are not planing to do anything with your Steem I still recommend checking out these updates and so keeping an eye on the price.
So without further ado lets take a look at today's Daily Steem Price change for 18/3/2020.
Should you be trading with Steem today...?
There is always something going on around here. If you have been following the madness lately you may know that due to Justin Sun who not so long ago brought Steemit INC as driven the community to fork the chain to a sister site being called HIVE. The move to the HIVE blockhain is happening at 10am EST, Friday, March 20th. Ned is no longer the owner but with that said the purchase of Steemit INC to it's new owner of course came filled with way more than just a bucket load of Steem Power. These many millions of STEEM are held by certain Steemit INC accounts and the promise at the time is that they were not to be used for voting on posts or witness voting as it was mined early on and was to be used instead for development costs only. Well atleast that was to be the plan with Ned as captain. Basically there is enough Steem Power within those accounts to knock out the Witnesses and replace them all if someone wanted to do such a thing and elect those of their own choosing. And I guess basically that is what it seems Justin Sun as done but not in the way that you are probably thinking. And this is because when Tron bought Steemit INC many in the community got worried that Tron could replace the Witnesses with their own and so taking over the whole blockchain plus forcing a token swap. So the action decided by our Witnesses to prevent this happening as Tron did not communicate with them was to lock temperately Tron from these accounts by freezing up their holdings. Of course meaning that Tron could not do anything with it's stake. This was to mimic the initial agreement with Ned until we can confirm the blockchain was safe. That decision itself was indeed not a great start to this new relationship between Steem and Tron but since there was no communication from Tron would you wait and risk the chain being taken over? Anyway that was the response from Steem's Witnesses to protect the blockchain, but it didn't end there. Tron's response to this move was to gather from exchanges Poloniex, Binance, Huobi which hold much Steem and get them all powering-up that STEEM to have enough POWER for Tron to then up-vote-in all it's own witnesses, so replacing the balance of power making himself in-a-way a "director" of all thing's Steem. This then means he could make his own Hardfork to unlock his main accounts again. There was a post explaining Justin's reasoning behind it apparently the witnesses who done this to he's account were now called "hackers" the post also contained reassurances that the Steem blockchain would not be moved to Tron without first the communities approval. So what does this mean for Steem? Well perhaps it's a demonstration that Steem for now is unfortunately not as decentralised as what some of us may think, still it's steps ahead 💛 of our current day of capitalism.
But like many had already predicted the Steem price started to rise in February this seemed abound to happen regardless of what many would say was a bad move for Steemit INC to be sold over to Justin. The price did rise but many complained it was only a small bump, still those with some SP behind their accounts already noticed the difference in benefits for having some skin in the game.
If you can spare a little cash why not also power-up💛 and show Steem a little love 💕❤️.
The goal is to reach 💛10.000 SP I have been on here for over 3 years and have never powered down once, meaning your votes are safe with me and help retain Steem's value. We totalled 7.841 SP at the end of 2019 and so that is what we started the year with. So if you want to help me jump-start this quest to lock away 10.000 Steem Power and retain more of Steem's value please consider leaving your best vote below.
On Nov 22th the price of Steem fell to $0.10 this was the fault of Bitcoin as it dropped to around $6580 marking the lowest Steem price for 2019. In 2020 Steem's lowest was already better then in 2019 at $0.11 not only that but as you can see the Steem price is now higher than what it's been in months! It's only been since February that we have seen jumps to $0.20! We broke record on February 12th at 0.23, but would you believe it actually reached it's highest peak on Valentines day 💕❤️💓 Feb 14th at 0.29 STEEM. Perhaps there is more to this Valentines day thing after all eh??
But still in 2020 this current price brings in a great opportunity to buy-in for cheap a good amount of Steem Power for your account to those who can see all it's amazing value and who believe we can still pull out of this mess by Steemit INC and TRON.
Anyway as for Bitcoins it was back on February 24th that I believe we last saw Bitcoins at $10.000. There was alot of talk about Bitcoins coming out of the bear market near mid Jan but to be honest Bitcoins had actually been going slowly upwards since Dec 18th 2019 and so far as stopped the trend in Feb 13th 2020 but of course yesterday we had a huge Bitcoin downwave which of course as effected all crypto-currency's and taking Steem to the lowest I have seen in a very long time $0.09!! As for the SBD's they recovered on Nov 29th after being so low, but there was not really any change until SBD's went above $0.70 on Jan 18th. Can you believe we had not seen $1.00 worth of SBD's since Jun 28th in 2019 until finally on Feb 13th we hit $1.00. SBD's had been doing relatively well since then but of course with this big downfall from Bitcoins we can already see SBD's falling.
TRON Owns Steemit INC.
Steemit INC was brought by the head guy over at Tron "Justin Sun" there was much worry on what would happen to Steemit INC and it's development team plus all their hard work in bringing us SMT's 2020. Many had seen tweets from Justin Sun claiming there was going to be a conversation of STEEM to TRON Token but from the live AMA with Ned and Justin he promised everything would continue as normal and a few days communities were launched. If your curious of the benefits of SMT's the whitepaper is the most authoritative reference for understanding what they can do for us. The best way to think of it all is like giving users the ability to create their own Steem-like-tokens. 💓 I do wonder if Steemit INC now being taken over by Justin will continue burning half of their earned Steem while placing the other half towards the SteemDAO. Probably not as they are not really earning anything due to the downvotes. As of right now alot of extra Steem is floating around because of initially the SBD conversions and now others selling because of the fear Justin will sell all he's stake if he comes to power. There was also a proposal about power downs going from their current 13 week track of "powering down" too a new power down of only 4 weeks, at first it seemed kinda like a normal suggestion but I did notice there seemed to be a push for this.. even with many against the idea, I wonder now if this was Ned preparing Steem for Justin Sun's powerdown. In the past new projects for Steem could receive a delegation but now Justin Sun is in control of the delegation account there as been some major changes with how much delegation projects are getting. Before Justin got in projects most likely to receive any delegation are only for the ones who were offering the most value. So in terms of like a mix of services, fiat, crypto, utility tokens, equity etc. Projects had to compete for such delegations. This was because they can be of really good value, for example a project that had a 1M SP delegation for a year had gotten around 10,000 Steem per week for 52 weeks! That's around 520,000 Steem and so worth around $50k, and if you think modestly in the past that's even been worth as much as $500,000💛! Justin Sun as also done away with most of Steemit's advertising model to improve the users experience on the website 💕 and while I think this is a great move 💛 perhaps we could do with the money in this current unknown situation. But I did notice it seems ads have not been fully taken away as Justin claimed, still they are much less invasive and I think improves the user experience.
If your a business or interested in marketing and finding a community of active users thanks to this wonderful platform I would advice you to invest in some STEEM Power first to gain more trust and viewer-ability withing the STEEM community.
Always do your own due diligence the above is only a opinion.
