Introduction / Re-introduction
New Chain, New Terrain
promoting independent investigative journalism and creating an on-chain research repository.
With the overthrow of the Steem elected witnesses, centralization of the blockchain and the recent rampant censorship it should be made crystal clear that Deep Dives has migrated to HIVE where all future research efforts will occur on the community-based decentralized chain exclusively.
Censorship of an "immutable" blockchain is unacceptable and goes against the fundamental principles of the our small but passionate research community.
The emergence of censorship on our sister chain should send a chill down our collective spines as it will surely increase in frequency. Dissenting opinions are no longer tolerated on the Steem blockchain where longtime Steemians have had their content removed through coding updates done haphazardly through a single centralized authority.
We @deepdives believe that this stamping out of dissent is part of a greater trend sweeping across major media platforms and is soon to become even more commonplace.
At this time in history, it is imperative that we fight censorship and support free-speech even if we do not agree with the opinions of others.
Thus far, just under 200 Steemians have subscribed to the community generating more support than initially expected. We thank you for your support and enthusiasm and hope that you will make the leap and join us at our new home on HIVE.
In a recent post, we asked for community feedback concerning the direction of #deepdives and received significant input from our followers. We greatly appreciate this and will do our best to incorporate your great suggestions as we go forward together.
If you have any more input, feedback or suggestions for us we'd love to hear from you! Feel free to leave your comments and suggestions in the comment section below.
At present, membership into the community has been based purely on previous engagement in the community through: posting, commenting, reblogging and upvoting. If you're interested in becoming an official member of the community, all you have to do is get engaged!
For those of you unfamiliar with #deepdives / @deepdives we have been here since May 2018 quietly producing original research content with our own brand of DIY independent journalism.
Deep Dives is a research project established by:
@v4vapid and @ausbitbank.
