Witness Update #1

in #witnes-update11 months ago (edited)

Drastic times call for drastic measures, and we're swimming in it. I'm writing this short update to inform all people voting for me to remove it and vote for the witnesses pictured below!

Yes, you heard me right. Remove your vote for me, and vote for those witnesses right now, at least until we have thwarted @justinsunsteemit's hostile takeover attempts.

I will update if anything changes, thanks for your support.

EDIT: Apparently @timcliff has disabled his witness, so you should choose the next highest ranked witness. @timcliff has resumed his witness, see comment below.

Also, consider converting your steemp to steem and powering up whatever you can, we're really close to getting back control of the chain.


Hi @r0nd0n,

I shut my witness down at the time Tron took over the chain, as my view at the time was that it was not right to continue producing blocks on a chain that was 100% centrally controlled. My view at the time was that the only path forward was to create a new fork of Steem where everyone could continue on without Tron, and leave them behind with the blockchain that they controlled. With the new push for the witnesses to regain control of the current chain, I have re-enabled my witness. I don't yet know where all of this will lead, but I am back to active on the current chain for the time being.

I have voted the witnesses highest ranked but not controlled by Tron. Some of those votes stuck in my craw, but I did it anyway to regain control of the blockchain.


NOT timcliff though

Whatever differences there, even about the soft fork, can be put aside to push for the highest voted witnesses on the chain for our best shot at taking it back.

but he is not active, its a waste.

Also what do you think of everyone converting their tokens on steemengine to steempower? Theres a lot of hidden steempower right now in those tokens. Make a post if you think its a good idea,nobody will see my post

I just edited this post.

also, I didn't say not to vote Tim because of his soft fork stance, I just think a vote will go to waste on him right now since it looks like he's not active.I know what you are saying

Ah, ok you're right, didn't know he deactivated his witness. A lot changes in a few hours, and I've been quite busy today with the shows.

great work !

Thanks. Can the SPS help us out? Convert those payments to SP to vote in community witnesses and then burn it later.

That doesn't sound likely at all.

If I vote for just one witness is my vote 20x more powerful than if I vote for all 20?



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.
