.Just a few short weeks ago, I had my STEEM account hijacked and my liquid STEEM and SBI stolen to another account. They started a Power Down on my Steem Power and I was in panic mode. But thanks to lots of friends and Steemit Inc's Account Recovery Program I got my account back.

So here I am on November 1st, participating in SPUD7 (with a 100 less STEEM than I should have had - but hey, I'm lucky I'm still here at all, right?)

Getting close to Dolphin - that's my next goal. Hopefully, by SPUD 8 on December 1, I'll be able to include that in my post! One step at a time, keep on plugging, and all that motivational talk that we tell ourselves every day. There are lots of creative people here on STEEM that are working hard every day. People that are out there promoting the blockchain on other platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

Poloniex is abandoning STEEM (all withdrawals must be made by Nov. 15th!) but my hope is that Coinbase will add STEEM in the coming year. This is not an announcement by Coinbase - only MY desire! But I think it would be a perfect addition for Coinbase and STEEM.

By the way, Poloniex has already kicked all USA customers to the curb! Starting today USA customers can no longer execute trades and all assets have to be withdrawn by December 15th. Hopefully, if you're in the US and you have an account with Poloniex (like I do, sigh) then you already know about this and have made arrangements to get out of there. (See Coinbase - us Americans need a place to go!)

Here's to the positive trend of the recent weeks and CHEERS to everyone of us participating in this journey together.

Thanks to all the curators out there, and my friends (and yet to be met friends) who take time to read my random thoughts and ramblings.


If you enjoy writing short fiction stories (less than 1,000 words) I'd love to have you join me on Narrative. Don't abandon STEEM - there's room in your life for both! Here's a link directly to my page featuring Flash Fiction:

Thank you @blueeyes8960 for helping to make this #spud7 a greater movement. The #spud initiative is taking hold here and will continue to grow with help from Steemians like yourself. Take care and have a good one.

it's great @blueeyes8960

Nice one on the power up and great to see you're back in full swing with your account after what happened.

I believe Poloniex is shutting down for good so it's not just STEEM that's going but the whole shebang so get out whatever you can while you can!

All the best for dolphin hood next month, I'll be waiting for you :)

@nickyhavey -thanks for stopping by! And from what I have read Poloniex "did a spin-off" from Circle and will rebrand as Polo Digital Assets, Ltd.
They delisted Steem:

Per the announcement, trading of PASC, STEEM, NAV, GAME, LBC and CLAM will be disabled on Oct. 15. LBC withdrawals will be permanently disabled on Oct. 28. Lastly, PASC, STEEM, NAV, GAME and CLAM withdrawals will be permanently disabled on Nov. 15.

And they kicked out US customers:

Poloniex is no longer accepting US customers and from tomorrow will not allow US residents to execute trades.

The reason for this decision is not too clear, but the US based crypto exchange is spinning out of Circle to Polo Digital Assets “with the backing of a major investment group,” they say.

“In order to be competitive in the global market, we will not be able to include US customers in the spin out, so Circle will be winding down operations for US Poloniex customers,” the crypto exchange said before adding:

“Beginning today, US persons will no longer be able to create new accounts on Poloniex. Starting on November 1, 2019, US customers will no longer be able to execute trades on the exchange.

When trading ends, US customers will still be able to withdraw their assets through Circle until at least December 15, 2019.”

Interesting but pretty sad seeing as USA is not a small country population wise! Lot of people to turn away from crypto right there.

It must be SEC related no?

Pity about Poloniex folding... but it has been a rough time for them. Anyway, does Bittrex work in the US? I think Binance also recently opened up a US exchange as well.
