RE: Witness Voting, OpenSeed and OpenLink
I have been mostly silent during this whole Tron fiasco, mostly because there isn't much I can do to help and I walked away from Steem politics in 2018 shortly after my team presented at SF3. This decision had nothing to do with SF3, but rather some other other nastiness in the community that no longer seems to be crippling the judgment of any current leaders.
However, I've always been here, quietly working away at a project I hope will eventually attract more mainstream users and blah blah. You and I have talked about it. We're still in the game, just waiting to see if we will eventually have to rebrand. I certainly hope not.
I do want to tell you, though, that when I first considered getting a Steem account way back in the by-and-by days, your YouTube videos were some of the first I watched on the subject of Steem. So you've been a "staple" for me that pre-dates my actual onboarding experience with the platform. Since then you've always been here, and it's good to see this post making it clear that you intend to stick around regardless of employment factor with Steemit, Inc. Well, Steemhouse Publishing and I, as well as our small staff of editors and other folk, are planning to stick around, too, unless it becomes sadly clear that it's pointless and everyone on the platform leaves. So let's build something new from all of this, shall we? I'll be around, doing the usual. Thank you for everything.
