I didn’t support the 0.22.2 soft fork, and will NEVER support these kind of actions that try to freeze assets purchased from someone in a legitimate way. DPoS should NOT give a poor example of freezing investor’s legitimately purchased funds for any purposes whatsoever. Also, the 0.22.2 agreement was made among “certain” members of Steem, it was not the consensus of the community
I don't care f***ing narrative of Ninja Mining. Do you really thinkg that the new users who joined the Steem community via powering up SP at an avg. cost of $3 - $4 care about the historical event?
I won't support the witnesses who proceeded 0.22.2 and now running 0.22.4444 which is literally the same as 0.22.5. It's super ridiculous. This drama is causing huge uncertainty on Steem blockchain and negative effect on the hope with new Steem supported from Tron ecosystem. We're too busy to make good products, not a drama.
Some people send FUD that @justinsunsteemit bought Steemit inc. to dump his token later on. So what? Aren't we living in a free market system, not communism world? I wouldn't invest my personal money (it was just $40K-$50K, super tinier than his) if this platform was trying to restrict the ROI-seeking attempt.
Steem platform should be a place for a variety of users, entrepreneurs, investors, and companies who can seek their “selfish” interest (money, fame, whatever) but still lead their various intentions to result in good positive surplus, rather than just becoming a small-sized English Subreddit.
As an entrepreneur who has devoted wholly my two years on making Steemhunt and Reviewhunt, my biggest matter is to make this Steem as a "proper" platform, not a small English subreddit. In the past year, the Steem ecosystem has become quite hostile to new users. The massive downvoting pool attacking non-English-based communities killed so many existing/new users. Also, waiting for the SMT launch has left many users feeling fed up and because of this many great DApps have left or gone into maintenance mode. Steem ecosystem needs big changes. The big changes that can bring more diversity and opportunities.
Steemit inc. needs more money to hire the top level of UX designer. I designed Steemhunt and Reviewhunt, and myself is considered to be a low-level designer. And honestly? Everything that Steemit.com and Steem.com are designed is f***ing ridiculous in my point of view. I strongly believe and admire the old Steemit inc. dev team. They've made Communities, MIRA, SMT, ... all from the small resources. But design?? hm... Steemit inc. really needs to hire top-level designers.
We need a new witness voting system. There are too many "seized" and "forgotten" witness votes that make witnesses not to much compete with each other. These are my rough thoughts: 1. All the witness votes the user makes should reset every new quarter (meaning that all users must renew their witness votes on a quarterly basis). 2. A Town Hall Meeting with the top 50 witnesses should be set by Steemit inc. so they can pitch their quarterly work/achievement. 3. The Witness voting reward pool should be set to reward the users who have renewed their witness votes. 4. Reduce the number of one person to vote from 30 to 3.
I just updated all my witness votes to 0.22.5. Reason? The previous top 20 witnesses have already about 4 years period to do something for Steem. Even in a normal world, we run re-election and change the gov if the result was not pleasing, right? Again, as an individual who powered up all my SP at the avg $3-$4 years ago and run DApps on Steem by waiting for SMT for years too, it's too obvious to support the new stream.
I'm too busy for running dapps and business, not the politics. I set my witness voting proxy on @proxy.token.
