Voyager is a new trading platform for cryptocurrency. The Voyager team is offering $25 in Bitcoin for early signups. You can also earn $25 for referring your friends. Referrals are limited to 100 people. The $25 in Bitcoin shows as pending until the platform launches and you open an account.
Showing the strength of the Steemit community, Steem has placed number one in the Netcoins contest. Congratulations to the Steemit community all of whom contributed by placing daily votes in the contest. The first prize is a listing on Netcoins.
Verge which is also backed by a strong community placed second in the contest.
The added exposure for Steemit and the Steem currency is welcome advertising for the Steemit community. I think Steem will eventually become a household name which can only be good for the price of Steem.

The Blockchain activity report for the week of July 9th shows Bitshares dominating global blockchain activity with over 60% activity. Steem comes in second with 21.9% activity. Ethereum has dropped to just 8.8%. Bitcoin and EOS maintain similar activity ranges with EOS hitting 2.7% and Bitcoin representing 2.9%. All of the remaining cryptocurrencies represent just 2.9% of this weeks’ blockchain activity.
Bitshares has seen a dramatic increase in usage over the past 2 weeks. Bitshares usually maintains the number 2 spot with Steem being the most active crytocurrency. During the past few weeks, Bitshares has been the most active cryptocurrency, not due to any failing on the performance of Steem, but just a massive increase for Bitshares.
I have just watched an interesting question and answer session about the new social network, ONO. The founder of ONO, Ke Xu has made it clear that the new social network will be built for the individual user. ONO has received an increasing amount of attention during the last few months because it is the first social network to be built using the EOS blockchain.
@Stellabelle is serving as head of international operations at ONO and offers a unique inside view of this social network startup. You can view the live stream here
I encourage anyone interested in ONO to watch the livestream as @Stellabelle does a great job of getting into the entire philosophy of the unique ONO community.
Unlike Steemit, where Steempower empowers the user according to the amount of Steem in the account. ONO will be a one person one account vote regardless of the number of tokens owned by the user.
One of the most interesting aspects of ONO is the evergreen nature of posts. Content creators will be able to earn income for an indefinite period. The content will not be limited to 7 days the way it is on Steemit.
ONO users will be able to customize their user experience by activating different modules, therefore the platform will be different for every user according to their likes and dislikes.
ONO users will have the option to remain anonymous or verified. Only verified users will be eligible to participate in voting for the leaders of ONO which is something similar to the witness program of Steemit.
ONO is not yet available in the US and will initially be available by invitation only.
Various projects may be found on the site. You have the opportunity to invest in these projects using cryptocurrency. The site accepts several different coins or you may log in using Steemconnect to pay in Steem or Steem Dollars. Steemit has delegated one million Steempower to Fundition so I’m sure we will see many exciting updates in the near future.
Fundition has also mentioned the release of their Smart Token, the Heart Token. I think we will see many great causes on this new platform which we can easily support with Steem. The Steemit community is already doing so much good, but this will just add an organized platform which we can use to change the world for the better.
Accumulating Steempower on Steemit is probably a common goal of most bloggers and content creators on Steemit.com
At first, gaining more Steempower was all about increasing the value of your vote which could be used to vote on posts and possibly develop a following who would in turn vote on your content.
As more new Dapps (decentralized apps) have been developed for the Steem blockchain, We are seeing many Steemians use their Steempower for a different cause. More delegations are now going to support the new dapps on the Steem blockchain. We have seen many new Steem based apps introduced during the past 6 months. Dtube, Dsound, Dmania, Steemhunt, and Dlive are just a few that come to mind. Many of these platforms allow you to delegate Steem in return for a percentage of the profits, for tokens, or even for influence. The benefits of Steem delegation vary per platform and should be explored by anyone holding Steempower.
We have opportunities every day to delegate Steem to new Steem projects. Delegating is a great way to get in on the ground floor of many of these groundbreaking projects while potentially increasing the price of our investment.
