Steemchiller goes witness! Let's make Steem safe again ;)

in #witness-category11 months ago (edited)

I think this is the perfect time to start a witness node on Steem. As many known witnesses decided to leave us and start an own blockchain project, there is now more than ever before a need for new engaged Steem witnesses.

I am the founder and developer of steemworld.org and I think I have proven myself to be an honest Steemian many times over the years. Creating drama and wars is not my thing, therefore I prefer to focus on building a better and more peaceful world instead. A world where we can all work together and grow by learning from each other. I will always do my best to bring Steem to where it should be, the top. I think we now have a good chance to finally get there. The sun is already shining, we just need to trust in the beauty of our own creations.

Justin Sun did not really have a fair chance to begin with, because the old community 'influencers' decided to freeze his accounts and attack him badly in his posts. I don't know why the old witnesses were unable to trust him, but it looks like they wanted to ensure that they will not lose control over Steem. That fear started the whole conflict and, as I stated in my last few posts, Justin's decision to secure his own investment by voting own witnesses to the top was an understandable reaction. Nobody likes to wake up and see his millions being locked by other people over night. I would have done the same.


As long as there are no strong evidences of criminal actions by a user involved, I will never support any soft- or hardfork that freezes anyone's property.

Of course, I will not give criminals a free ride and in case of criminal actions (for example, harming the Steem system on purpose or clear evidences of fraud) I will work together with other witnesses to find a helping solution.


As soon as I can afford, I will provide a full RPC node to further support the whole Steem network. Of course, I will continue to develop amazing Steem tools and always help the community as best as I can.

If you want me to be your Steem witness, please vote for @steemchiller on steemit.com/~witnesses or steemworld.org/witnesses.

Thank you and Steem on!

Creating drama and wars is not my thing, therefore I prefer to focus on building a better and more peaceful world instead.

Staying with steemit will not avoid the drama in the near future is my honest opinion. Does censoring of posts from steemit not bother you? Are you ok with that?Even if you really believe what you said in your post, then certainly you have double standards.

I'm ok with censoring when the future of Steem would otherwise be in danger. They should not use the old chain to promote the new one in the way they did. To a degree the promotion is understandable, because they made a very risky decision and they don't want to lose everything, which has been worked on over the years, but by attacking Justin and Steemit personally over and over again they created a good reason for starting the censorship.

It's like one works for Burger King but eats his burgers at Mc Donalds and while sitting there putting up a big sign that says 'this company's meat is toxic'.

If you're ok with censorship, I wonder what you're doing on social media blockchain.

We want to get money... He doesn't care on what engine this site is working on as long as he gets paid

The joke's on [email protected] then, because if you're "in this for the money" you're frighteningly naive.

"the hive" is already censoring accounts. Including @steemchiller.

// Accounts excluded [FROM HIVE AIRDROP] who voted a minimum of two sockpuppets or proxied someone who voted a minimum of two and who didn't unvote before the hive announcement with more than 1k sp

So, not so much a "democracy" as much as it's more like a VOTE FOR THE RIGHT ACCOUNTS OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES.

https://steemit.com/hive-171744/@logiczombie/q7tdnv#@logiczombie/q7tdnv

his account is not censored. It's there waiting for him should he choose to log in and use it. He didn't receive the airdrop which isn't an entitlement. There is however a process through which he can gain that airdrop and many have reached out to encourage him to use it.

He didn't receive the airdrop which isn't an entitlement.

Please explain what you mean. Isn't the entire value-theory of HIVE that it's a COPY of steem?

Imagine if NOBODY got an "airdrop"?? HOW many people do you think would move to HIVE?

BY EXCLUDING ACCOUNTS FROM AUTOMATIC "AIRDROP" BASED ON VOTING BEHAVIOR, YOU ARE SIGNALLING CAPRICIOUS AUTHORITARIANISM (FASCISM).

So, not so much a "democracy" as much as it's more like a VOTE FOR THE RIGHT ACCOUNTS OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES.

WHY WOULD ANYONE BEG TO BE PART OF A PROJECT THEY'VE ALREADY BEEN SINGLED-OUT FOR EXCLUSION FROM?

I'D SAY "FUCK-YOU".

yep Hive is a 'copy' of the Steem code ... a copy that those who created it had the right to decide what stayed what changed.

In this case they chose to create a starting point that dropped stake to people who didn't vote on sock puppets based on a criteria which was coded in and decided by the code.

That was a somewhat arbitrary starting point for some. For others who get that those who create get to decide we understand the starting point is created by those who create.

They then decided rather than arbitrarily decree that would be the final word, they created a process through which the community could agree to have the airdrop go to those the community didn't see as a threat even though they had a lapse of judgement.

That's democracy in action when those who could choose to control, choose to put the decision in the hands of the collective.

With the behaviour of Justin Sun and his arbitrary, dictatorial censorship, many would have made the move without an airdrop. They would have powered down their accounts and bought HIVE because of it being what Steem should have been. Like they are doing now.

Many of those same people would not be powering down and would be staying here except for the dictatorship from Sun. The more I see what has stayed here, the more I am relieved I'm among those leaving.

Caprcious fascism is alive and well, it's known as Justin Sun... enjoy

I hope the HIVE flourishes.

They definitely have a lot of talented and well-intentioned people on-board.

I just kind of wish they'd stop pretending they're "a decentralized censorship-resistant platform".

And they still haven't taken any steps to prevent someone (or some small group of oligarchs) from accumulating a large HIVE stake and taking-over-the-place (exactly like the SUN fiasco).

We want to get money and tske care of iur families but he doesn't care

(1) PROTECT YOURSELF
(2) PROTECT YOUR FAMILY
(3) PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY

he's in for the money

I'm ok with censoring when the future of Steem would otherwise be in danger.

How very sycophantic of you. You think people advertising another blockchain on STEEM is the greatest risk to it? Especially people who still own significant stake and resources? Laughable.

What's laughable is that you and others got exactly what you wanted, yet you continue to spend time on here. You have your new home, go grow it.

Why? I still own 115k steem power, not going to get rid of me that easily.

Then behave as an adult!!!

Oh is that the requirement? Who gets to define what an adult is? You?

If you are still invested in something it makes sense to want it to do well while you are still invested in it. Sticking around to bash it does you no good at this point, either financially or in the use of your time (which is the most valuable asset there is).

I'm ok with censoring when the future of Steem would otherwise be in danger.

If steem had a chance to survive, it certainly has it not after starting censoring.I know many that took their decision to abandon completely steem exactly because of that. Not that it was not obvious that it will happen at some point, but some had still illusions. I think you can see that too, I consider you are smart enough to realize where it will all end up...

If steem had a chance to survive, it certainly has it not after starting censoring.

Are you kidding me? Marky and the rest of the censorship (secret) "blacklist" crew all moved to HIVE. There should be much LESS censorship on steem now.

Regards dear friend @liondani.

If steem had a chance to survive, it certainly has it not after starting censoring.

Acts of censorship were currently directed at a group of well-identified users. We can understand this attack as an act of revenge, but ... can we really be sure that these actions will not be extended to the rest of the users?

Changes in TOS give a lot to think about. A legal framework for applying censorship is being established.

Your friend, Juan.

I'm ok with censoring when the future of Steem would otherwise be in danger. They should not use the old chain to promote the new one in the way they did.

The censoring placed Steem in more danger than the posts promoting the new chain. Every clone of Steem that has come into existence has done exactly the same thing. Whaleshares was one of the most persistent in doing so.

What the censoring did was move a lot of people, like me, who had every intention of staying on both chains with the hope that both would thrive in their own right to power down and decide to move on.

Justin Sun and his enabler Ned were the maker of their own misery. I didn't agree with the freezing of funds. I did agree with triggering the non-voting that was in the code and had been for years. I also didn't agree with voting for sock puppets especially when their creator wasn't even bothering to do the basics of appearing to run a witness properly like updating price feeds.

After seeing Sun's childish response to the whole situation -- the censoring accounts and arbitrarily changing the TOS to limit free speech was the last straw.

Having said all that, I'm among those who would support you getting the airdrop on Hive should you choose to pursue it simply because of the work you've done and the contributions to the community you've made in the past before this ugly situation occurred.

Your blog is your own property. A more appropriate analogy would be if you posted on your Facebook page that you were moving to Steem because you didn't like Facebook's censorship and they removed that post.

But, they weren't just posting on their own blogs. That is the issue. They were posting on nearly every single post being published and in many cases the comments too(using bots).

Oh, I'm not referring to bots or comments. I can understand why Sun would block those. I'm talking about witnesses and crypto influencers that had their posts censored on their own blogs.

Which Facebook did to me. I spent some promoting steem to friends and all links were removed with the warning about community guidlines.. shortly after sharing them.

Actually promoting partiko when it was good..

It's pretty much everywhere

Hang on every time I have seen accounts censored here the argument has been ''the blockchain is imitable''
So going by their own logic they have not been censored!

Hive people spammed their content on off topic places on Steem Blockchain

dependiendo del punto de vista de cada persona aunque a veces la censura. ayuda con el contenido unapropiado es mi punto de vista

The problem that cannot be solved here is that there will always be people with bad intentions. No system configuration will change anything here. We are not able to control it at the level of software solutions. Any tool can be turned against someone else.

I understand that we all have axes to grind, but this is not the time or place to kill the messenger. Strength is in numbers, if you don't learn anything else from this reply>>What Is, Isn't, What Isn't Is, Until it Isn't or Is and Never Judge A Book By Its Cover, You May Get Caught Up In Its Pages, Especially, If You Are A Corrupt Politician Or An Unregistered Foreign Agent working against our Republics Inalienable Rights to Life, Liberty and Property.

I got to STEEM through Steemit.
I don't think I like being on another part or on another platform, I have tried several and the only one I really liked was Steemit. In addition to all your training flow and all kinds of people. I have really kept myself low key and I do what I can and I will continue to do it but here. I believe in the potential of this platform but I also know that those who are witnesses should know how to defend the platform and not want harm for it.
Well anyway I have always liked SteemWorld and I have read many of your posts, and the anguish that caused you to invest all your resources to achieve an excellent job and not have enough. I think it is wonderful work and it would seem childish to me that the desire to destroy it for pride or for any other reason prevailed. I think these are times to build. So you have my vote, although I try to do it and I only see the button turn, without loading the vote.

Ich bin durch Steemit zu STEEM gekommen.
Ich glaube nicht, dass ich gerne auf einem anderen Teil oder auf einer anderen Plattform bin, ich habe mehrere ausprobiert und der einzige, den ich wirklich mochte, war Steemit. Zusätzlich zu all Ihrem Trainingsfluss und allen Arten von Menschen. Ich habe mich wirklich zurückhaltend gehalten und ich tue was ich kann und ich werde es weiterhin tun, aber hier. Ich glaube an das Potenzial dieser Plattform, aber ich weiß auch, dass diejenigen, die Zeugen sind, wissen sollten, wie man die Plattform verteidigt, und keinen Schaden dafür wollen.
Trotzdem hat mir SteemWorld immer gefallen und ich habe viele Ihrer Beiträge gelesen und die Qual, die Sie veranlasst hat, all Ihre Ressourcen zu investieren, um einen hervorragenden Job zu erreichen und nicht genug zu haben. Ich denke, es ist eine wundervolle Arbeit und es scheint mir kindisch, dass der Wunsch, sie aus Stolz oder aus irgendeinem anderen Grund zu zerstören, vorherrschte. Ich denke, dies sind Zeiten zum Bauen. Sie haben also meine Stimme, obwohl ich es versuche und nur den Knopf drehen sehe, ohne die Stimme zu laden.

I know you said you prefer to use Steemit. If this is not working: https://steemitwallet.com/~witnesses you could make an exception and try this: https://steemworld.org/witnesses. I hope this helps.

Hi @akiroq
Thanks for your interest and sample of altruism.

Great! This will please dear leader Justin Sun. Make sure you run every single hard fork and piece of code that he wants to be released. Also remember to never ask questions (dear leader hates that). Run every piece of code right on the mainnet, never test it. Always trust dear leader Sun knows best. If the code he gives you does not work or causes issues with the API, it's not his fault, it's your server.

I wonder how people can see so many bad things in a person without really knowing him and his plans. We should at least give him a chance. I'm finally very optimistic about Steem again, because there is now someone who will clean all the mess.

A few things come to mind. How many chances do you give someone who is taking a decentralised blockchain and running it in a centralised way? For years Steem has had content I have not always agreed with, but I would never wish for any of those authors to be blacklisted.

  • CCP style censorship (trying to scrub mention of Hive)
  • Justin using millions in Steem to downvote content related to Hive
  • Lying to exchanges to get them to use customer funds to vote in socket puppet witnesses
  • Creating a blacklist of users who left for Hive or had something to do with its development. First citing terms of service violations (which did not exist) and then changing the terms of service.
  • Dangerously lining the top 20 with sock puppet witnesses all running on the same server, with incorrect price feeds

I used to be a big believer in Steem. I've been actively involved in the community as well as numerous development efforts. I lead the Steem Engine front end team, I loved this place. Now, it goes against the principles of centralisation and the way Steemit is running this place, it's not what Steem was ever about. As much as Ned was an ass, he and Steemit never stooped this low.

All the points you mentioned are reactions to the one important failure of the witnesses:
They froze the stake of a new, big investor.

Justin is just defending his investment. Prior to the SF he even said that he does not plan to get involved in the existing consensus structure. The witnesses created a situation in which he could not do anything other than overtaking the top to get his funds back.

Here's the style to deal with that in the "free" world!!

I'm sorry you're offended that people are willing to give you a second chance

Don´t feel sorry for me! That answer wasn't for me!
In the recent case is the same, they are asking for steemchiller and all the people blacklisted in the airdrop, to beg for clemence and bow to the masters.

Evoé!!

Deal with reality or reality will deal with you!!!

Regardless, Steem was already centralized before Justin Sun came along. Ask what was being done with what was supposed to be the Steem Onboarding Fund. I hope there was no misuse. Ask who would have had the power to do that. Ask how many "anonymous" accounts were created with 15SP and then used to vote in witnesses and downvote people (people with opposing opinions, coincidentally). Ask how many accounts some people own. Just because there is one big account to point a finger at, doesn't mean there weren't other very large stakeholders, who were just clever enough to hide their stake in many many "anonymous" accounts. Ask about the various schemes that were used to milk members, under the guise of helping Steem and the community. The histories and wallets have all of this information. Anyone can look it up. Well known accounts/communities that accepted delegations and help in order to "promote good/valuable content". Two things I observed happening: The profits went to market in one case(very regularly) instead of growing that account. That account would have had more power to help with otherwise. Who profited here? Where did that money go? Did it increase someone's stake? In another, large votes(close to or 100%) went to a "select" group of accounts(regularly). Then there was just not enough "power" left to vote the content they said they were going to. After they allowed the SP to recharge, they would allow some votes to go out (mind you, at a very low percentage), and then the process would repeat itself. Did the delegators know? I doubt it. Did anyone provide a public explanation? No. I venture to guess that the majority of people did not know what was happening. What is worse, these communities had volunteers running around like monkeys trying to find good content. What about blacklisting people for things other people did, because those accounts voted for a post or comment from someone that was blacklisted. Not to mention people blacklisted are guilty first, they have to advocate for their own innocence. Ask how many innocent people were branded guilty because they were branded a danger, posed a threat with their counter opinion? Free speech anyone? Mmm mmm good. How is this fair? Who gets to decide this? How is that decentralized? Not to mention the incredibly demeaning process to go through in order to be removed from a blacklist. Did you know that people who are blacklisted aren't entitled to some rights (or some of their funds)? I didn't. But cool. So what happened to those funds? And, what about if you offer a counter opinion, how suddenly, strangely, a robot downvote trail seem to show up. Oh, but don't worry the powers that were, "weren't retaliating" becaused you dared to speak up. And what about the circle-jerking between large accounts? Or the curation window designed not to promote new content or new users, but to promote only old and known users.
From what I understand, though I have not personally verified it, content was removed from Steem prior to this. You can google it probably. I know some people were writing about it outside of Steem. From what they are saying someone actually went into the code to remove things. How, I do not know. But apparently there was a way? At the time, I hoped it was not true. I am sure someone here will know what I am talking about. (It was from what I understand for providing counter-opinions.)
And this is just the tiny tiny tiny bit which I encountered in my 11 months here. I noticed these without really looking for them. These were just triggered by some abnormalities that stuck out and caused me to look a little deeper. How much more was there? How deep does this go?
Don't get me started on Hive. Copying people's intellectual property without their consent. Copying code that links to media resources that were dedicated to Steem, and paid for with the purpose of being used for Steem. Copying the name of another blockchain business. Bullying people into voting with them. What kind of voting system is that?! Lying to the media. No, they didn't just fork Justin out. They forked out everyone with a counter opinion too. At the time I was blacklisted I wasn't voting Justin's witnesses. But you can bet I sure did after I found out what was said and done behind my back. And those problems I talked about above and all the other ones I personally don't know about, those have migrated over to Hive now. How will you take measures to ensure that the same thing won't happen over there?
And how do you know that this stake account will never be used to vote. What? Because someone said so? Come on! We've all heard this one before.
The way the system is designed makes it ripe for exploit and decentralization. A lot more will have to be done than copying the code.
You guys have a lot of work ahead of you. And by guys I mean the members. Because some of your leaders. I wouldn't trust them as far as I can throw them. The comical thing here is that I think some developers really don't know what other developers were doing. I mean come on guys! Who are you getting into bed with? Did you bother to check? Or, are you part of it?

It seems that you got lots of downvotes who did not even offer to counter your argument LOL.

I voted for u

HIVE is centralized so your a hypocrite, here 80 million HIVE in 1 account:

Screen Shot 2020-03-25 at 22.19.45.png

Do you even know what the Steem.dao account is? Evidently, not. That's the account for the proposals system, it's akin to the null account... Sheesh, if this is the intelligence level of the people left on Steem, this place is doomed.

In the hive dao is also the ninja mined stake of steemit. Now in the hands of your witnesses to use in their self voted proposals, along with the steem/hive of the censored users of steem that were labeled as traitors.

If anyone at all has access to it, then it is not a null account. From what I have heard people do have access, and stated justification for having that access. I am sure you can find that information unless it, like many other things, has also been walked back. Who knows at this point really.

Are you saying all of us who freely decided to stay in steemit is beneath you? Such arrogance.

Hi there

I've been reading through many comments related to new hive chain and I've seen your comment too. Many users are being torn, however majority seem to be moving to new hive.

Are you fully moving there or will you stay on both chains? Just curious. I'm trying to figure out what to do myself.

I’m moving there slowly but surely.

If you check out his history....

What people decide is up to them. All I can do is hope that people look a bit deeper than what they have been told, and do their own research. Then they will have something to base their opinion and decision on instead of just retelling the stories they have been told.

베리굿!

I am super glad that @Kuttmoped introduced me to your site. I already gave you my steem witness vote. Now I look around a little bit on steemworld and am happy to discover the functions. Thanks a lot!

Hi @steemchiller, that is great to see such a news it was already a long time that I was wondering why you are not a witness but I can understand that you are a person who is concentrating on your work and not in all the drama around.

The same like you, me and @myskye absolutely agree that everyone in this free world has a fair chance to show themselves, what he is and what he does and we have judge people on the results of their work and not on our personal likes or dislikes.

We have seen what you have done for last 4 years and very glad that you now step up and would like to lead the community as a witness. You have our Vote and we know that many of our friends will vote for you too.

Actually it is fair to say:

Hey Steemians, everyone who uses and likes Steemworld program have to Vote for you @steemchiller as a witness!

I think trying to make the world a better place to live is a great idea
But despite the old beliefs and superstitions and the desire for wealth and power of some people in power in the world, we must bury such a desire with us.

I don't think that we should bury such a desire. Isn't that exactly what the world did all the time? Wealth needs to be more equally spread among all human beings. The big change begins with believing that it is possible.

@justinsunsteemit did not really have a fair chance to begin with, because the old community 'influencers' decided to freeze his accounts and attack him badly in his posts.

It's like you're watching the same screen and an entirely different movie. Have fun appealing to a centralized authority, it's clearly the type of environment you prefer to exist in.

Lol... frag mich echt, wie du da nur minimales Vertrauen rein setzen kannst, aber gz zum Witness - LANGE überfällig ;).

Glad to have you, let's build this place.

Hey SteemChiller I voted for you.

Thank you :)

Let's gather people who want to work on helping to secure Steem.

I'm in, but I would need some help getting a witnesses up and running.

Voted you, Man.
Keep on the good work!

You have my vote. I think you acted very fairly in this drama and were unfairly penalised by not receiving a stake in Hive, in spite of your service to so many Steemians 🙏🏽

Hi @steemchiller

what's going on here, have you seen it?
witness 63teemchiller (disabled forever)

image.png

on this list it is correct

image.png

Thanks for mentioning this! As @bluerobo stated, the running_version is reported as 0.0.0. as long as a witness hasn't yet produced a block. I produced my first block a few minutes ago and now it's being displayed correctly ;)

I think it is because he has not run any blocks yet. He is still setting up

Hello dear, @Xpilar! I was thinking that maybe THIS, deserve some of your attention and much more visibility on hive.

A big hug and good winds for every project!!

Glad to see that there are still developers on steemit who are brave enough to take a chance and help build a new steemit and steem. I will stay in Steem and continue to use steemit. I totally agree with you and the old witnesses did not handle the negotiations well. They started the war which they could not finish. I mean they did not even last a month. The end result was Steem landing in full control of Justin Sun.

The incident brought out the worse of the Steem community with many coming off as bigots and racist, equating Justin's ethnicity as one of the reasons for not trusting him. Ignoring the sensibilities of other races who are also using this platform.

It was all about maintaining power, influence and whale circle jerking party that has been running since time immemorial. Censorship is nothing new on steemit practically those who have enough power can downvote (censor) anyone without any repercussions. Unfortunately, there is a bigger whale in town. Funny it seems that censorship is okay so long as they are the one censoring now they are getting a dose of their own medicine it miraculously becomes taboo, how hypocritical.

Let's make Steem safe again ;)

This resonates with me a lot... the previous Steem is not safe for dissenting opinions especially against whales or their cohorts. While steemit inc is censoring post it does not bother me since a lot of them are just spamming the network. Their post does not add value that will benefit steemit users. They are just here to burn down the house which others chose to stay.

I'd rather deal with censorship than having to associate myself with bigots, and racists. I don't want to be coerced to behave differently just to always be invited to a whale circle-jerking party or to avoid being censored by a downvoting group of megalomaniacs with their skewed ethnocentric views.

Meine Stimme wirst du bekommen 👍

Yes I agree
My vote is not worth much bu you have it : )

It seems to me that a lot of people do not know what to look for in a witness and have been wondering for quite some time about what we need to know about witnesses.

Given the recent events I am wondering what questions you would ask any potential top twenty witness to determine their suitability?

A witness should be in control of himself and be able to make important decisions himself. He should be able to work with a clear mind also when there is much noise around him. He should care about what is being discussed regarding the future of Steem and should always stay true to himself, not just blindly follow the herd into the darkness.

I won't vote for witnesses that are at any point willing to freeze other accounts and I prefer to vote for people who focus on Steem's success instead of drama.

A witness should be in control of himself and be able to make important decisions himself.

As you will be... waiting for Steemit.inc to vote you in. 😂

Welcome to the TRON promotion machine.
I at least hope you make some money out of it, you speak nonsense, but at least you had a good service going.
GL.

Hey @SteemChiller I would never want to be disrespectful to you since I really enjoy your services for the community and your general attitude. If you see me hate on Justin or recent happenings, do never feel included.

The Sun has risen very high meanwhile, there is a lot of work ahead of you.

You have my support.

We voted for your witness.

And why did Exyle suddenly disappeared?

really glad to see new witness candidacy like you, steemchiller! Welcome aboard, you deserve to be a rewardee from community :)

I am in FULL support of you @steemchiller. I have always been from the very beginning...from day 1. I was just waiting for you to come out so I could vote you in. I've never voted someone for witness before because I was waiting for you. Thank God you are here. This man is "the dude" we can trust. He deserves it. I love you @steemchiller.

Esto es amor y lo demás tonterías xD

Hallo @steemchiller gut Nachrichten können wir gebrauchen! Steemchiller for Witness
Ich sehe die alte Wittnesse Garde auch als Schuldigen die den Streit vom Zaun gebrochen hat.
VgA

Danke dir! Ja, es wird Zeit für weniger Streit und mehr positive, erfolgsversprechende Zusammenarbeit. Es können nicht immer alle Leute einer Meinung sein, aber zumindest sollten wir andere Meinungen respektieren und nicht sofort einen Krieg starten, wenn es mal kompliziert wird.

Wir schaffen das, wenn wir es zulassen ;)

Hallo @steemchiller,

ich bewundere deinen Mut. Was zwischen den Witnesses und Justin Sun abgelaufen ist, gleicht einem Kindergarten. Das ist kein professionelles Geschäftsgebahren. Ich persönlich bin neutral und der Meinung, dass beide Blockchains eine Chance für die Dezentralisierung bedeuten, wobei ich ehrlich gesagt Hive gößere Chancen einräume.

Dennoch warte ich erst mal ab, was hinter den Versprechungen beider Seiten über deren Pläne zur Entwicklung einer wahren dezentralen Plattform bzw. Blockchain steckt und am Ende in die Tat umgesetzt wird.

Wir brauchen Witnesses mit Integrität und guten Prinzipien, denen sie treu sind. Selbstloses Handeln zu Diensten der Community und der Entwicklung einer wahren dezentralen Blockchain, das ist der richtige Weg in eine freie und friedliche Gesellschaft.

Deshalb beabsichtige ich demnächst eine Community zu gründen, die sich mit der Vision von "Protopolis" beschäftigt. Dazu folgen noch Posts von mir, worin ich das Projekt und die Vorgehensweise zur Entwicklung einer Blaupause für die zukünftige Gesellschaft vorstellen werde.

Aus oben genannten Gründen werde ich neben Hive auch weiterhin die Steem Blockchain unterstützen. Beide können gedeihen. Krieg ist keine Lösung.

Lass dich nicht unterkriegen und diene stets dem Guten!

환영합니다.!

I love to vote you as witness. I can do whatever in my hand to reach out you at top 20. Please update your version.
I also think about to start a witness note from a week but i don't have sufficient support to reachout at top50, So I droped the idea. I am in learning stage.

I like the steemworld app very much, your thoughts for standing strong against wrong things done with @justinsunsteemit . I Support you.

you shd do tat moons ago ! keep going. want to vote but having issue with steemworld witness voting , cant sign with keychain and manual login return some error.

Yes, finally the time has come :)

cant sign with keychain and manual login return some error.

I guess you weren't signed in. Auto-Signin is not yet available. You first need to sign in using your posting key.

I added a hint that was missing for those cases.
Thanks for reporting!

진심으로 환영 합니다.

대단히 감사합니다 :)

Witness voted!

Was wondering if you were ever going to be a witness. You have my vote hands down. Steemworld is by far, my favorite tool that has come out of Steem to date! I hope to see Steem move forward, and think very similarly about the situation as you.

Ich habe dies gerade entdeckt und dich gevotet. Wenn du magst, setze ich dich als Proxy. Soll ich?

!invest_vote

Vielen Dank @freiheit50! Ja, du kannst mich gerne als Proxy setzen.

Schon erledigt!

Ich werde dich hier nicht alleine lassen, auch wenn ich auf der anderen Seite mitspiele, weil ich dort ebenfalls viele gute Kumpels (und Kumpelinen) habe.

Schauen wir mal, wie sich alles weiterentwickelt.

@freiheit50 thinks you have earned a vote of @investinthefutur !----> Who is investinthefutur ?

I withdrew all my delegations and began powerdown after I heard news of the hardfork coming. I was initially pro-Hive, but during the hardfork they really screwed Steem-Engine based tribes. Many whales and witnesses dumped their SCOT tokens while discussing a hardfork with the community. I am let down with both sides and will continue a presence on both. If you intend to stay on Steem and try to keep doing good things, I'll redelegate a bit to you again to help support the future of SteemWorld. Sorry you got the short end of the stick my friend.

I am very confused but decided to power down and this for the very first time since 4 years. I am planning to observe for a few more days before I make a decision.

Voted @steemchiller
Keep it up Sir. :D

Mexican community supports your witness, for the sake of steem. @steemchiller

Congratulations on your honesty and commitment. :)

I'll be brief but with a sincere heart, this is great news!
The best winds for this great project and those to come!!

You are my first (and only so far) wuness vote with our new Steem. I live Steem world and wish you the best. If there is anything i can do to help, please let me know.

Hi @steemchiller, it seems that the moment is indeed interesting for new witnesses on STEEM but I still wonder if it's worth investing in it since there is no visibility on what @justinsunsteemit wants to do for the future of STEEM. I think I'll wait until I have a little more info on where STEEM is going before making a decision, if the migration to Tron is still on the way, in which case the witnesses won't be useful anymore.

What documentation did you use to set up your server? Most of the documentation I know is very old and the Steem-in-a-box version is I guess doomed to become obsolete.

What documentation did you use to set up your server?

I've read all the available (old) guides and tried out different configurations. I don't want to use prebuilt containers or something like steem-in-a-box, because I prefer to learn how it all works by doing it myself. When all works stable, I will publish my own 'how to setup a consensus node' guides.

I created a bash script that downloads the latest stable source from github and builds steemd and cli_wallet automatically. It now all seems to work, the only thing I still need to find out is why my node reports the version 0.0.0 instead of the blockchain version that I'm running (0.22.5).

it reports 0.0.0. until you had your first block. Then it will display the version you are running.

Thanks for the information and for your useful SteemWorld 😉

Yes there is a little visibility. It's just that you have not looked in the right place just yet : )

I am feeling very confident. Sure when they dump their Steem on the market, the price will tank for a while, but the price will recover. And we will start to grow the amount of individual users again after three years. We have had bulk new accounts created and funded by Steemit inc only ever used for flagging. Now those accounts have been counted as users. Here is a small list associated to just one operator account there are a lot more but i just got bored collecting them but at least it gave me a good idea how many there are

Meinen Respekt für diese Entscheidung hast du. Ich werde dich hier auf jeden Fall unterstützen und für dich Voten.

Good luck.

luck will needed

Voted for you now, I hope your projects get funded and you can continue to grow steemworld :)

I agree with you, we're meant to be a community.
I feel trapped in a children's war.

You get my witness vote @steemchiler because I know you long hoped to run a witness here, and you tirelessly created and maintained the excellent app that is Steemworld.org with very little support... and it was always one of the most enjoyable parts of the Steem experience, for me.

I hope your witness does well and makes it into the top-20 so you can make a little money to help with your financial struggles. I may not agree with your perspectives on everything that happened during the recent upheaval (and I now view Steem with a lot of skepticism), but you deserve every success here!

Well, we definitly don't share the same opinions on some facts... but I respect yours and I think this chain needs an objective and critical voice. (as long as sun permets it, good luck with that)
Anyway, you got my vote(s) and I wish you all the best! If you can make some money of it...you deserve it. I had a wonderful time using steemworld and always found you were not enough rewarded for it.
Take care and good luck!

I feel the same way. Great job of summing it all up.

Voted
I believe there was a reason why markymark was not supportive of you doing this before

Thanks for the opportunity and give us a chance to make its part again, thank you.

Of course, you have my vote.
You are a magnificent example of compassionate clear vision, @steemchiller 🙏
A huge hug! 🤗

@tipu curate

Yaaay! Finally! Good Luck!

Steemworld alone is more than enough for me to vote your witness. I hope you rise up to the Top 20 to get you funded for your future development.

Thanks for keeping Steem stable.

I will vote for your witness.

Will you stay on steem?

I am already more focused on Hive but I still had some contests open here on Steem. I need to finish giving out the Steem prizes etc.. as of right now my account is on power down.

@steemchiller has one of the best dApps and I'd love to see it on Hive.

I am very happy to see you staying with us. Also, I appreciate and share many of your points of view. I've voted for you as a witness, and I hope many others will as well. You are an asset to this community. Not to mention that Steemworld has always been an amazing tool, one I use daily.

Thank you!

I hope you will be able to re-add the delegation tool

What exactly do you mean by re-adding? There is a tool for adding/removing/editing delegations directly in the Dashboard (Account Overview) and one for exploring older delegations (Delegation History).

My bad. Perhaps there was a glitch last night. It was completely gone from my dashboard. I just checked. You are right, it is there now. Wonderful. Steemworld is probably my favorite by far. Very useful. Thank you for all of your time and dedication.

Vote for you now.

Good news at last!

Hi there

I've been reading through many comments related to new hive chain and I've seen your comment too. Many users are being torn, however majority seem to be moving to new hive.

Are you fully moving there or will you stay on both chains? Just curious. I'm trying to figure out what to do myself.

After everything I've seen and analyzed, I can't trust Hive. Rada Quest is a project that was born in Steem and stays in Steem.

Big Thx for your reply. I think i will stick around on both chains for time being.

I also figured that you may find this post interesting and worth your time:
https://steemit.com/hive-175254/@project.hope/project-hope-curation-trail-on-both-chains-steem-and-new-hive

It's post published by good friend of mine and I'm helping him to promote their curation trail.

ps. how come you think you cannot trust HIVE?

Wrong question. The question should be why trust a community whose leaders attack big investors, cheat their followers and clone money with a photocopier?

Great! You've my vote indeed. Great job!

Irgendwie schade, dass du hier bleibst. So viele Menschen mit Köpchen sind abgesprungen und du gehörst ja eigentlich dazu. Die Sache mit der Blacklist war natürlich scheisse, aber dafür steht auf HIVE eine Lösung in den Startlöchern. Steem wird abkratzen oder von Korea übernommen. Die coolen Leute sind auf HIVE. Komm doch auch :)

Vote done! Glad to see you as a witness. It is really hard to vote now as most of the other witnesses didnt made nothing for steem yet. Nobody dont know them just they are in position because of JS.
So i was happy when i saw you wanna became also.
Just keep up the good work!

You will have my vote.

  • I think you were unfairly left out of the HIVE airdrop
  • I don't agree with the SF, although I understand the reasoning behind it. You simply cannot freeze someone's funds. It is against some basic principles. It was wrong. I think most of the witnesses would also confess this.
  • That being said, Justin Sun's move with involving exchange user funds to take over the chain was a much bigger fiasco than the fund freeze above. Nobody can justify the use of user funds by exchanges to vote for witnesses. And exactly this move is unacceptable for me to stay on STEEM. This move was an eye-opener, saying the guy would do ANYTHING to get what he wants.
  • I hope you are not willing to accept everything Justin Sun comes with. I hope you be honest and fair, and focus on building value for the community, instead of blindly saying YES to every demand of Justin Sun like @blockbrothers. These guys stabbed the community in the back. I will never ever vote for them, and in case you will ever walk the same path, you will be unvoted too.

I hope keep adding value to the community! Thanks for your tools!

I would like to know... In the past, have witnesses said NO to some demand from steemit inc(Ned)?

I know it's not good to follow blindly, but in this situation ...

Glad to see this!

Ok, you just got my vote. Still looking for more Witnesses to vote for who are eager to continue to build the current set up of Steemit. Any tips are welcome.

You have our vote!!
