RE: Disappointed about the VOICE Beta launch: U.S. only and a lot of restrictions 🤔

Thanks for sharing your experience with the beta, I would say Steemit is way more decentralized, before the Tron announcement hit us today. The future of Steem is now at risk, as Tron wants to move everything to the Tron network. Let's see what happens and hoping for the best.


Steem (the blockchain and not the Steemit Inc stakeholder) is exactly as decentralized as it was prior to the TRON acquisition announcement. Nothing in the consensus protocol for Steem has changed. The risk of a 51% attack from a majority stakeholder like Steemit Inc was always there. But now we may get to actually test whether the Steem blockchain is sufficiently decentralized to survive.

I'm writing from the presumption that most Steem users don't want to switch to TRON and there is nothing Steemit Inc or TRON will be able to do to change that.

yes this is very true, we will see now how decentralized Steem really is, I am also not really against a partnership with Tron, it all depends, what Justin Sun has to offer, and how the other investors, DApp authors and witnesses react. I could even imagine a fork of the Steem Classic chain and a new Steemit on Tron, or alternatively if the offer from Tron is really good, that the majority wants to move to Tron, then let it be so. Exciting and stormy times ahead of us :)
