Witness Voting & Proxy Update From Steemleo | We Will Not Support Any Witnesses Who Take Justin's Bribe

in SteemLeo11 months ago

Hey everyone!

Our last post was a call to action to either vote for the witnesses who support the Steem Community or set @steem.leo as your proxy witness vote so that we can do the voting on your behalf.

We will always side with the Steem Community and the witnesses who support the values of decentralization and making the Steem Blockchain thrive.

I woke up to the news that both @blockbrothers and @steemhunt have kissed the ring of Justin Sun and agreed to support his malicious hard fork against the Steem community’s best interests.

By supporting the statements made by Justin, these witnesses are agreeing to let the exchanges — Binance, Huobi and Poloniex — off without any repercussions by changing the power down window… ONLY for those exchanges. Thereby giving them special treatment and essentially a pat on the back for helping Justin install his SockPuppet witness accounts into the top 20.

As a long-time user of Steemify and an off-and-on Steemhunt enthusiast, I find this extremely disturbing and disappointing.

Apparently, self-interest and greed have led these 2 witnesses (who struggle to reach the top 20 on their own) to bow down to Justin Sun and agree to his demands.

Vote or Set Your Proxy

Another Public Service Announcement — please vote for our Steem Community witnesses or set a proxy to someone who does.

You may not think that your SP matters, but it absolutely does. If you look at @steem.leo’s proxy voting power, it has risen by over 350,000 STEEM POWER worth of vests from just a single post promoting our proxy.

This makes a huge difference. Every vote counts.

To set us as your proxy, just click this link and confirm it in Steemconnect. It does NOT have any impact on your voting power for rewards on the Steem blockchain. It only impacts your witness voting power which is completely separate from anything having to do with the rewards pool.


This call to action is the most important time to show up and be a true Steemian.

Please get out there and vote for the people who will be on the right side of history.

p.s. if you vote and screenshot it in a comment below our last post, you're still eligible to earn upvotes and a 250 LEO power bounty. We're compiling the list of those bounties and will send them out soon.

Thank you!

We're killing the voting game and the witnesses continue to gain more support

I am fully voted for our consensus witnesses... after reading this, I am done with Blockbrothers; how disappointing! Never a big fan of Steemhunt... too spammy for my tastes, so never had an interest in supporting their witness.

At the moment, I am just concerned about the consistently heavier volume of Steem trades on Bittrex... I'd like to think it's just because Huobi and Binance have their Steem gateways closed, but I'm worried that it means someone (aka Justin) is accumulating Steem to make another run at controlling the witnesses.

I've seen some large xfers that are Justin-related accounts. He's definitely buying a few million Steem and powering up. The question is how long he is willing to dump more money into STEEM. Hopefully steemians are keeping pace and continuing to buy as well

oh @blockborthers, those people commenting on your @exyle's posts about them having a "clear head" are clouding their judgement.

I was such a fan too...

WTF @blockbrothers and @steemhunt!? Well, I guess we all have choices but damn, this one seems wrong.

Thanks for the info @steem.leo and thanks for fighting the good fight with my proxy! :)

I didn’t see any statement from Steemhunt.

Almost three years on Steemit, my first proxy witness voting. @ironshield


Looks like @blockbrothers changed back to 0.22.1?

Seriously the amount of plot twists this week would have M night Shamalan shook

That why I stopped to follow exyle for a long time.
