The decentralized social media platform Steemit has created native Steemit apps for use on iOS and Android, among other upgrades for 2017, as reported by cryptocoinnews.com.
Apart from this, the company has announced the implementation of its software into Elastic Compute Cloud and Amazon Web Services. Thus, they aim to provide a high availability hosting service.
“Migrating hosting to reputable third parties allows us to focus all of our time and attention on development of the site, software and community, not on scaling or maintaining servers or hosting infrastructure”, said CEO Ned Scott in an interview with cryptocoinnews.com.
Also, Steemit plans to redesign its services in order to improve aesthetics and functionality. “The features we are adding will make the user experience even more enjoyable and continue to build on the small town community feel, reputation building and incentivizing great, uncensored discussions”, explained Scott.
Later this year, Steemit will introduce a parallel blockchain architecture called “Fabric”. Multiple blockchains will be created to enhance performance, scalability, modularity and fault isolation, according to cryptocoinnews.com.
Last month the Steemit community has requested the platform to complete hard fork.
“The hard fork request was initiated by the community, and once we reiterated the recommendations, we received an overwhelmingly positive response”, said Steemit in their press release quoted by cryptocoinnews.com.
Currently the platform has one of the biggest market caps, amounting to $36,516,276, and an available supply of 231,279,617 STEEM, as coinmarketcap.com wrote.
