It's been a year since I created my Steem account.
I fell in love with the philosophy behind blockchains and in particular I fell in love with Steem and his principle of freedom.
The blockchain is the largest computer revolution in recent years but it is also a form of peaceful rebellion against centralization that leads to the concentration of power in the hands of a few.
In practice, 20 new witnesses "magically" appeared and positioned themselves in the top 20 positions in the ranking of witnesses.
In one day @yabapmatt went from first position to twenty-first position.
If I compare the first of the ranking with the twenty-first one, the image I have before my eyes is an ugly, paradoxical, sad image.
Who is he? What did goodguy do for Steem?
What created goodguy? Nothing.
What did googguy do to improve Steem? Nothing.
The first witness in the ranking is a little gray man. Nothing more!
Obviously we don't know who he is but we know who is behind him.
The twenty-first in the standings instead did a lot for Steem and created a lot.
I use Keychain to access Steem and to access the various Dapps. A very useful tool.
Who created Keychain? Yabapmatt and Aggroed
I sell, exchange and stake many tokens on SteemEngine.

I enjoy playing Splinterlands: a game where the cards are digitally mine.

How is it possible ?
The answer is as simple as it is sad:
Money, Money and Money ...
Justin Sun bought Steemit Inc. and decided to take the shortest and easiest way to change Steem without comparison.
Will Justin Sun do Steem's good and take him high?
I don't know, but I don't like this behavior.
A form of arrogance and disrespect for the people who have loved and experienced Steem so far ...
Let's vote for the real Witnesses
I have only 2000 SP and my vote is very little, it is an insignificant vote. But beyond the single weight of voting it is important to do the right thing. And I'm convinced that voting for "real" Witnesses is the damn right thing to do.
A positive sign
