Steemworld is a very cool tool that all Steemians should know about. I gave my support to a load of the proposals at the weekend. I did it through Steempeak, which is also excellent. It's great that we do not have to rely on Steemit these days.

Yes the Steem Proposal System has a lot of potential as it grows.

Splinterlands is even having several curation trails, one even specialized on #spt exclusively. You have just earned yourself an upvote from us, triggering our more than 1.2 million SPT power followers. Amazing content you share here!

Thank you.

@tipu curate
