Operation affected by hardfork 23.
For those that don't know,
likwid is a service that trade it's users tokens that are vested for 13 weeks in exchange of liquid equivalent for a flat % fee.
During the lifetime of the business we have absorbed volatility of a mostly depreciating asset but today we cannot even operate of a STEEM to STEEM basis as
likwid account was a target to be de-funded by HF23.
About USD $130,000 worth of our assets was seized and sent to an arbitrary account
Likwid is currently in situation where it cannot access the last 13 weeks worth of crypto assets that were deposited before the fork.
We were able to save a small amount of SBD before the fork but the bulk of the remaining funds are insufficient to pay back all it's users in full.
Likwid would therefore be insolvent and will need to seek legal advice on how to move next.
We have sent a direct memo to @bittrex and have contacted Bittrex inc and are waiting to learn more about what will happen to our funds that were sent to them.

Thanks for your patience and support in these though times.
Since it was reported to us that curating according to the rule of the system is the most likely reason for the asset seizure we would like to remind all Steem Witnesses and most importantly Steemit that there was never been any ways to use downvotes for self benefits beside indirectly increasing effect of it's upvote by less than a millionth of a %.
We believe downvotes are overall beneficial to Steem as a whole and while it might hurt the feeling of some, that they can only be considered benevolent and not prone to self-enriching like upvotes are.
