Thanks for clearing that up.

So, what if you "forked-out" all the stake that had been sitting in the same account for the same time period as the "ned-stake"?

Would you consider that "fair"?

"...all the stake that had been sitting in the same account for the same time..."

I don't have any idea what you mean by this.

I don't really think much matters anymore about what stake is forked and what is 'sacred'. DPoS is simply the golden rule: who has the gold rules. On Steem that's now Sun Yuchen, applying the founders stake for that purpose. On Hive it's the old oligarchy @ned refrained from interfering with, because on this fork the founders stake is folded into the HPS.

That leaves the lesser players to @ned now completely in charge, instead of being lesser anymore.

None of the struggles over governance really matter, because the total market cap of all crypto is a trivial sum for myriad parties extant, and Sun Yuchen can be bought and sold for lunch money - as Warren Buffet proved.

Steem and Hive are only as decentralized and censorship resistant as folks with enough money to buy them decide they are, and that means they're not decentralized at all, but get allowed to play at it by their betters. I am resolved to enjoy the ability to speak my mind while I'm permitted it, and to seek other venues in the event these close.

That's really all we can do.

No kidding.
