Happy 2nd Birthday Steem Blockchain

in #steem3 years ago

It was two years ago today that the genesis block of the very blockchain storing this text was produced. Much has happened in those two years. When we originally designed Steem it was our goal to create a blockchain capable of supporting content-based applications at scale. Two years later we’re proud to see that steemit.com has become one of the top 1,000 websites in the world. Not only that, but other disruptive applications are now powered by Steem and also experiencing exponential growth!

The Fastest and Most Transacted Blockchain

Due to the popularity of Steem-powered applications, the Steem blockchain has broken away from the pack in terms of transactions per day. The Steem blockchain now regularly performs more transactions in a 24-hour period than Bitcoin and Ethereum combined, and it holds the record for most transactions in a single day as the only blockchain to process more than 2 million transactions.

Exciting Things to Come

There are many exciting things in the pipeline including communities, SMTs, continuing improvements to scalability, effortless onboarding, notifications 2.0, and much more. Steem has accomplished quite a bit for a two-year-old, but we fully expect that in its third year of life it will transform from a toddler taking its first tentative steps into a full-blown blockchain of opportunity, partnering with publishers and entrepreneurs to march together toward an entirely tokenized content web.

Thank You, Steemians

The Steem blockchain wouldn’t be anything without all the amazing Steemians leveraging these applications and contributing to the github repos. We can’t thank you enough, not just for using these apps, but for telling your friends, families, and complete strangers about this blockchain we all love so much. Thank you for making Steem a part of your daily life, and a part of your way of life.

Team Steemit


Happy Birthday!

The principal! He will give me TP! I would hate for my bungholio to get polio....Where I come from, we have no bunghole.

Happy Birthday Steemit !

lol only 2 years future will be great

Belated birthday wishes Steem.
notifications 2.0 seems to be interesting. Can somebody point me to a blog post about this? Would like to know more details. A good notifications system can get more people hooked to Steem. Waiting for that feature to be part of the Steemit directly.

Happy Birthday Steem Blockchain! 🍸 🍾


Two Years of Steemit Time! Whew!
That's like 14 human years! :D

It's sure been a hell of a ride!


I wish I had joined earlier. Meeting amazing and kind people is overwhelming.

Happy Birthday Steemit and Steemians!

Congratulations for birthday of steemit.

Here's to many more years of Steem chaining blocks.

Hello friend, you can support me with a good vote. I'll be grateful. It would be a great contribution.

There's a reason why I always keep talking about Steem's brilliance.

Happy birthday Steem blockchain and congratulations to @ned and his team. Steem blockchain made available Steemit which will remain in history as first of its kind. A lot of creative and awesome features have been made available here like the speed of transaction and the fact that its transactions are free.

There are many improvement to come, things are not perfect and we always aim for excellence. I know with time a lot of the issues we face at the moment will be addressed as we progress but for now we celebrate what we have because it's a pure product of genius minds.

Once again I congratulate Steem and it's development team, you offered us gold which we hold today in our hands. I pray for long life and prosperity of this great platform and it's users. Steem on everyone.

Happy birthday! Been here for 4 months and I'm enjoying every moment.

Awesome wow nice post

Is it because of the 2 year anniversary that all the people icons are gone? Some sort of happy birthday suit thing?

edit: It's to cold to run around in a birthday suit in Alaska, so I had to put some clothes back on. ;-}

Wow! I'm glad I caught this post, only two hours after it was published. Happy birthday Steem blockchain! Happy birthday Steemit! So much has happened in two years (much of which I only read about), can you imagine what you'll say at the 10th birthday? :)

Is that the reason why you changed unannounced the version of api.steemit.com?
'blockchain_version': '0.19.4'

hear hear, it's pretty stunning for two years work i will say, they have fixed so much in that time.

No terrible two's! No terrible two's! Moonshot!

Oh, Steemit is 2 yrs old. Belated happy birthday Steemit then. Lots of growing up to do. 👍

The developments that are to come will improve a lot the user experience here (communities), the value of Steem (SMTs) and its potential (scalability).

I am proud to be here with so many other people and I am shocked to see that this post has such a low number of views and activity.

Happy birthday Steem!

That's great. The Steem genesis block was history in the making. I'm so happy that I'm able to be a part of it. Happy Birthday, Steem.

I join in the congratulations. Happy birthday! I wish you further development!

Steemit is 2 years hurray.
Happy birthday Steemit.

Glad to be a part of this STEEM Blockchain.

I am REALLY liking the sound of the Third Year...

2nd happy birthday

wish you are happy birthday!!!!

The steemit is really a nice blockchain system . it is more helpfull in many ways . we just need to help each other and we need a community to bring some thing special to the site and make it more popular and get some thing special for the newbies . because the newbies are not getting the deserving attension we must think about the new steemians coming to the site .

Happy Birthdays Steem Blockchain. Wish All The Best For You ❤️❤️❤️

2 years of Steemit existence exactly when my account reaches 2 months.

The only problem I have with the platform is that I did not found about it sooner. But better late than never I guess. Maybe 2 years from now I will be considered one of the early adopters lol.

Anyway, happy Birthday Steemit. Good luck to all the people on the platform and to all the newcomers that will join.

Steemit to the moon!!!

You absolutely will :)

Resteemed and excited for year 3!

Great information. Thank you!

Happy Birthday STEEM! I think there should have been more posts or celebratory fashions around this date.

Looking forward for the realase of HiveMind and SMTs .. AppBase is already ready for primetime I believe ..

Happy anniversary! May we have many more!

Why have our profile pics disappeared?

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday, Steem!

Wszystkiego najlepszego!!:) 100 lat!

Congraturations! You guys have done really great job. I really appreciate about this.

Happy birthday steemit, i am looking forward to the SMT's who could really change the web how we use it today and tokenize nearly every website. Pretty exciting.

Happy birthday. Just to be as little original as anyone else :)
