Vote for witnesses now to ensure Steem's future!

in OCDlast year (edited)

As if real life didn't have enough drama, there's now some on the Steem blockchain too. For those who've somehow missed it, there's a centralized entity that has attempted a hostile takeover on the governance of the blockchain thus threatening the decentralization of the whole ecosystem, which is a no go considering that decentralization is the backbone on which Steem is built on. The good thing though is that the community has already taken action with widespread info about the situation. We've also managed to vote 3 of the "real witnesses" to the top 20 - only 1 more and we can prevent any centralized hard fork from happening, 17 in the top 20 and the community will have the decision power back.

Ignore all those avatarless sock puppets and vote the original witnesses!

If you're still unsure what to do you can also just set me as proxy:

Never has it been as important to use your stake and vote for witnesses than now, use your votes!

Remember to also power up your liquid Steem to get more voting power!

Edit. Seems like we just got the 4th witness to 20! Now we only need to make sure to push more original witnesses to top 20 to get control back to the community!


I have literally just done it! can you see my votes? if so tell me who else to vote for 👍

Great! For now I'm voting for every top original witness as to get them as fast as possible back to the top.

Just ignore the avatarless accounts:

Its looking good?

10 witnesses in the top 20 now. It isn't over yet, but it seems like we could actually regain the control back. Goes to show that you can't just buy the community, not without a big resistance at least. It is an ongoing acid test on the resilience of the governance model. If we get through this, it could go down in history.

The Steem blockchain is currently being attacked by a central authority in order to take control of the witnesses. If you are not managing your witness votes, please consider setting @berniesanders as your witness voting proxy by clicking here to help restore the decentralization of Steem.

We now have 4 in the top ten.

I have an idea to change the system of voting, would love to know what you think:

We now have 4 in the top ten.

Yeah, I noticed!

The idea with downvoting on witnesses is an interesting one, but I'm not sure what to think of it personally.
