Phew... we're still decentralized!!

I almost thought we had lost our home!

These are some turbulent days on our beloved STEEM blockchain, our decentralized virtual home, the only place on the internet where we get to own what we create and share while we can prosper and grow our stake as individuals and as a self-owned community governed by a transparent mechanism and voluntary participation.

For a moment there I thought we might have lost this place, but alas, no, the community has rallied and the chain's governance, despite showing some obvious weaknesses, has prevailed and secured the decentralized nature of this ecosystem! At least for now...

It is still too early to celebrate!

This is a very crucial point in the history of STEEM itself, but also for the delegated proof of stake (DPoS) blockchain governance model at large. And you are a part of that.

If you still haven't done so, please check your witness votes to make sure that you vote for the kind of STEEM you want to see going forward!

If you've been living under a rock and are unsure what's going on, I don't blame you, it's quite confusing, but let me give you a hint:

CHECK THE WITNESS RANKING ON STEEMPEAK

All the witnesses you see running version 0.22.5 (0.22.5) are in fact all just brand new accounts created under centralized control of Justin Sun's team. If more than 17 of these get into the top-20 spots, these could ultimately be used to enforce changes on the network without any reconciliation with the community.

Witnesses running 0.22.0, 0.22.1 or 0.22.4444 are the real individuals running nodes to keep this blockchain operational and decentrally distributed. The four 4s are really just a symbol of protest against Sun's power grab.

Do you want the future governed by a single entity interested in nothing but hype and profit or do you want to live on a chain that stays decentralized and governed by the community itself?

Your vote matters!
ย ย ย ... ugh... I never thought I'd ever say that

I know you're not here for politics and usually I try to stay as far away from that as possible, but right now I feel our future here is at stake and I do see no googly future on a centralized assimilated SNORT chain...

It's been quite a while... so let's finally just get into some prizes and some cool #GooglyEyes already!

๐Ÿฅˆ The 2nd winner is: ๐Ÿฅˆ

@marblely with
"Grouchy"

Grouchy by @marblely

And when life gives you lemons you'll take a bite of the sour apple. That face is kind what I must have looked like when I noticed 20 sock-puppets have entered the consensus.

ย 

ย 

๐Ÿฅ‡ And Our Grand Winner is: ๐Ÿฅ‡

@steemean with
"Rocky faces on the beach"

Rocky faces on the beach by @steemean

On behalf of our home here online there is a lot happening. But I think with faith and believe we will get there

First af all: congrats to the winners and thanks by tones to those that took some time to make their awesome entries!
You stated the whole thing quite well @fraenk: we want our beloved Steem blockchain , we own it and we grow it adding content as amazing as these googlyeyes entries. No way for us that a guy full of millions gonna tell us what to think, what to vote and finally control our destiny as a community.
As Iโ€™ve said many times (even to that guy also known as a โ€business manโ€) : you can buy Steemit (merely a website), you cannot buy us โ€the communityโ€!
Big hugs everyone, keep looking our surrounding world with different, funny eyes ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ

Thanks @fraenk for one more time feeling proud of the posts I make on Steemit. :)
A little ashamed for 2 rounds winning.:(
And I want to give 5 Steem for the prize of next round.

My father explained what is happening on Steem and I want to say my words on this.
This is also a reply to the comment by my good friend @drakernoise.

Steemit is my second school, and @brickmanbrad along with @googlyeyes was my first grade, that made me do new posts and have fun everyday.
Thanks to so many others that have helped me to show my work and to meet a lot of good friends.
Steemit had no king, one thing that I like.

I don't like the new king that wants to hurt the people, and destroy our work and friendship.
My father say the value of Steem is people and not money.
This Tron king want just the money and not people.
Let's unite all and keep the battle to save our castle.
We don't need kings. We all together are the kings.
Friendship is bigger then money. :)

Please pass this message.

I agree you absolutely Jimbo (@steemean)... we are a community, you cannot buy it, someone told (can't remember who): *"you cannot buy a community you have to earn it"๐Ÿค—

To have money without friends, is a sad story. :(
