Awesome info and updates @pennsif Thanks for putting #spud in there as well. The Steem Blockchain has a lot going on with room for more. There is something of interest for everyone, and if not then you can create your own topic/category/Dapp/NFT/Token etc. that is of interest.

I was happily surprised that I managed to find so much to include. Looking forward to keeping track of all that is going on in 2020.

@pennsif I also wanted to mention another project that I think is a noble cause, and it is by @drutter called Mission: Agua-Possible (MAP). It is a charitable effort via upvotes to gather up enough STEEM to send to the head of a family in Venezuela @edgargonzalez The funds will then be used to buy a well pump for their drinking water. I imagine it will be used by many families around them. Anyhow, give it a looker over, see if it somehow fits as News, but if WHEN we succeed, then it surely should be by then. Thank you again. Take care.

I will keep eye out for any news coming from the project.

Thanks, mate.
Also Thursday the 30th, Adelaide meetup; again at The Jade from 6pm :)
