Waiting for a third chain...

in #hive2 years ago (edited)

When Hive was announced, I was a bit iffy on a few of the details. Now seeing the result of excluding all those that supported certain witnesses, I'm unsure of what to do.

@steemchiller makes one of the most important tools that I use every day on Steem, SteemWorld.

I'm not really sure of the exact reason why he supported certain witnesses of Justin Sun. He says it was part of a deescalation. Whatever. I don't really get it myself.

What I do get is the black and white exclusion of all these different people, the whole "with us or against us" attitude and an "appeals process" that seems very fucking centralized.

I don't fucking know what to do. Justin Sun is clearly a complete knob 'n' numpty, but I'm not so certain that this new group creating this new chain will make the right choices going forward.

Not getting free coins isn't the end of the world. Those left out can still sell their Steem if they want, and/or buy Hive whenever it goes on sale, or earn it all the same. It just doesn't feel right.

And maybe Steem still has a chance, even if Justin Sun completely fucked it so far and corrupted the exchanges to do so.

Could a third or even a fourth chain pop up that might actually be the true future of "Steem"?

Could this just be a small hiccup that will pass in no time, and be no big deal?

Could the combination of all the various people joining the Hive community mean the chain gets more developed and decentralized?

Could some other chain pop up that's more topic specific that we should maybe use for some posts, and hive for others, and maybe still occasionally cross post to Steem?

I honestly don't fucking know. I don't know what to do. Steem is fucked.

I'm cautiously optimistic..

I like the idea of a decentralized chain.. and find nothing wrong with excluding people from an airdrop based on some math (apparently they use an if loop to determine who got the drop).

there's still steemPeak for here, and dpeak or something for there.. SteamPeak wants to support multiple chains and tribes... not just steem and it's offshoots..

I think you should take a wait and see approach and try both out

Maybe let things settle out a bit. Less people posting it could be okay.

I think I might cross post for a while.

Although I thought it was supposed to like split today...yet I can't post there yet.

@theoretical is apparently working on a new (non steem fork) chain. Was planning on investing into hive, but after looking at not only the black list, and at the lengths hive supporters went to attack those on it, I threw those plans out the window.

Its pretty fucked up, most of the people on that list were more against forking Sun out without discussion then die hard supporters of centralization.

The witnesses seem to have forgotten that they froze Suns account before he had ever placed a single vote.

Currently most people I follow are using HIVE at the moment HIVE has more developers as everyone left to HIVE. I agree the blacklist was too much and certain people deserve to get there HIVE which I am pretty sure they will even though they have to go through a process. Most of the people on HIVE will support people like @steemchiller all of this happened real fast.
