Meeting between Justin Sun, Korean Stakeholders.
I saw @ausbitbank writed an article titled Meeting between Justin Sun, Korean Stakeholders, Steem Witnesses and Steem Foundation 12/03/2020.
I don't know much about cryptocurrencies, but I recently discovered a hot issue that Steemit was acquired by Tron.
In my opinion, it seems that Stemit runs on the American voting system and stock trading. By the way, Tron is a virtual currency of China different from the American system.
Americans, including @valued-customer, seem to be opposing Tron's acquisition of Steem.
That reveals it's existential import to the Steem community, particularly now, after it has been used to seize control of consensus by one stakeholder with ~1/5 - 1/3 of extant Steem. It is easy to understand how 30x weighting of that stake enables complete control of governance. What is disappointing is that the legacy consensus witnesses that have heretofore benefited from oligarchical power over governance remain unwilling to fix this flaw in DPoS that threatens to completely centralize Steem today.
I have little hope that the choice between an upstart overlord and the legacy oligarchy will enable Steem to actually gain greater decentralization of governance.
@maxsieg claimed that Korean society was isolated.
its so strange that the korean community is so eager about justins proposed changes. like they live in a complete separate community with own perspectives completely not influenced by us or us by them. so disconnected despite being on the same blockchain
The arguments of the two will each be probable. However, I also thought that there was a lack of information about Koreans and Korean society in foreign countries.
The language and cultural barriers between Koreans and foreigners were still large.
As @maxsieg claims, Koreans may be in an isolated environment, but the most important thing is to understand Korean thoughts and feelings.
Through the conversation of @valued-customer and the Prince of China, I tried to express the history, religion, faith, philosophy, and emotions of East Asian civilization in English.
However, writing was difficult due to my lack of English skills.
Americans and Europeans I met usually identified Korea with Japan. A Frenchman were surprised that Korea used its own language and text even though it was a Japanese colony.
He first asked in Japanese, but I couldn't speak Japanese, so we spoke in English.
Americans and Europeans seemed to know that Korea was a Japanese colony. Do you know that there are 10 million Korean Protestants and Catholics like me?
However, there were many Westerners who believed that Korea is a Buddhist country like Japan.
In fact, Koreans created their own texts and languages to become independent in the Chinese character civilization.
The Korean alphabet, known as Hangul (Hangeul)[note 1] in South Korea or Chosŏn'gŭl in North Korea, has been used to write the Korean language since its creation in the 15th century by King Sejong the Great.
It is the official writing system of Korea, both South Korea and North Korea. It is a co-official writing system in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture and Changbai Korean Autonomous County in Jilin Province, China. It is also sometimes used to write the Cia-Cia language spoken near the town of Baubau, Indonesia. A Taiwanese linguist Xu Caode (1987) developed and used a modified Hangul alphabet to represent spoken Taiwanese Hokkien, and was later supported by Ang Ui-jin (see Taiwanese Hangul).
However, it was actually an independent country because it belonged to China's economic sphere, but diplomatically acted as a servant of the Chinese emperor. The most dangerous enemies to China were the Manchus and the Mongols, where Chinese emperors bought the nations of the Korean Peninsula and held back their enemies.
Since ancient times, Koreans have received money from Chinese emperors, and have held back Manchuria and Mongolians.
On the other hand, Japan was neglected because the Chinese emperor had no political or economic interests, and eventually Japan invaded for China's wealth.
The brutal invasion of Japanese pirates destroyed the Korean and Chinese dynasties.
Wokou (Chinese: 倭寇; pinyin: Wōkòu; Japanese: Wakō; Korean: 왜구 Waegu), which literally translates to "Japanese pirates" or "dwarf pirates", were pirates who raided the coastlines of China and Korea from the 4th century to the 16th century. The wokou came from Japanese, Korean, and Chinese ethnicities which varied over time and raided the mainland from islands in the Sea of Japan and East China Sea. Wokou activity in Korea declined after the Gihae Eastern Expedition of the Joseon in 1419, but continued in Ming China and peaked during the Jiajing wokou raids in the mid-1500s, but Chinese reprisals and strong clamp downs on pirates by Japanese authorities saw the wokou virtually disappear by the 1600s.
Koreans and Chinese have been frightened by calling Japanese Wokou (Chinese: 倭寇; pinyin: Wōkòu; Japanese: Wakō; Korean: 왜구 Waegu), because they have been plagued by Japanese pirates for hundreds of years.
Westerners believe that modern Japan is an advanced country, but Korea and China are seen as pirates that have been plagued for centuries. So, Korea and China had recognized Japan as a common enemy.
Japan started World War II to conquer China and was conquered by the United States. The United States has raised Japan as a great power to stop communist empires.
Although the United States has raised Japan as a western developed country, Koreans still doubt Japan.
In particular, Korean Christians are sorry that the United States cannot make Japan a Christian nation.
I am sorry that a respected Christian like @roleerob has not made Japan a Christian nation.
In my personal opinion, Japan changed from a wolf to a gentle sheep after receiving the wealth of the United States.
The United States gave it a whip and a carrot, so the wolf became a sheep.
With the US dollar now, Japan has become rich, but with the development of China, Japan's wealth is disappearing.
In the past, Japan belonged to the US economy and became rich through manufacturing. However, the Japanese economy is currently falling due to China's manufacturing industry.
Since ancient times, Japan has invaded Korea and China because of lack of food and resources.
As the manufacturing industry leans, Japan becomes a military power and attempts a new revival.
The United States supports Japan's military consolidation, but South Korea and China have different positions.
So, South Korea wants China to check Japan to some extent.
I'm not good at English, so I wrote only the historical and geopolitical parts.
I don't know much about cryptocurrency, SteemMit, and Tron.
Koreans have a different opinion than Americans because they value politics, military, geopolitics, and history more than the economy.
I'm reading @valued-customer's article to study SteemMit and cryptocurrency, but it's hard to understand.
You should liked to first know that only a handful of Koreans are understanding and investing in Steem and Tron.
