STEEM Community Old Guard To Begin Great Trek From Steemit.com To Hive.io

The old guard of the STEEM community opposed to the new order of Justin Sun of Tron are preparing for a Great Trek away from Steemit to Hive.io, their new home. Community sources confirm there will be a hard fork away from Steemit on Friday.

Hive.io comes with its own blockchain, the Hive. Snapshots of loyal Steemian accounts have been scheduled. Honey 🍯 drops will be airdropped into such accounts, while accounts of pro Sun Steemians are not likely to get honey.

This reminds me of the Afrikaanar Great Trek to Transvaal after the Afrikaanar defeat in the hands of he British Huitlanders. It also reminds me of the Maoist Long March in China after a major defeat in the hands of Chiang Kai Chek’s Nationalists.

It also reminds me of the May Flower, the Pilgrim Fathers leaving England to settle in America after disagreements with the English monarchy.

I will be watching to see if the special relationship between England and America is replicated between the STEEM and Hive communities. Over and out.

Cost Of Registering Goods In NAFDAC Slashed By 75% – Osinbajo

The cost of registering new products with NAFDAC has been slashed by 75%. This welcome piece of info was contained in a press release by the office of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

The previously high cost of NAFDAC registration for food products is known to have discouraged many entrepreneurs who couldn’t pay hundreds of thousands to register their products.

Many of these entrepreneurs were forced to abandon their business dreams and projects after spending from their tight purse to some extent.

But the Vice President said:

“The rollout of NAFDAC’s e-registration platform and a 75% cost-reduction for product registration is a great opportunity for registering products just at 25% of what it used to cost to register products.”

Kudos to FG for this people-friendly policy. Like Oliver Twist, the people ask for more.
