It doesn't matter what Blockchain we are talking about or what coin is being discussed, the community is the most important part of it. Without it, without users, there would be no point of running a Blockchain.
We have proved the crypto world that it doesn't matter the size of your wallet, the community is stronger; we have demonstrated to all the skeptics that DPoS can be attacked, but will not go out without a fight; we have showed all the Bitcoin maximalists and all the Altcoin non believers that we're organized, know how to stick together and work for a common goal and, most importantly, that as a community we are unstoppable.
But we must not halt now. Now is the time to to keep pushing. Both for decentralization and for the sake of the community, we must keep spreading the word about how we fought a central entity, how we stopped a hostile takeover, and how we are more than just more than a Blockchain or some coin holders.
Make a drawing, a painting, a photography, a GIF, hell you can even make a meme about this topic: Steem: The honey badger of communities, fighting to protect decentralization and DPoS.
Post it on Steem using the tags #hive-174578, #steem, #honeybadger, #blockchain and #posh. Remember to post it both on the community and on your steem Blog.
Share your art/meme post on Twitter (not a steemit.com link, only other frontends allowed) using the hash tags #steem, #cantbuyacommunity and #decentralization.
Share your tweet on the comment section of your post so we can go to Twitter and retweet it.
Joining this challenge doesn't automatically earn you a vote, you must put effort into making your art/meme and it's up to curators to vote on it.
Let's fight decentralization and this hostile takeover together.
This is a @blocktrades sponsored challenge, don't forget to vote for them, @ocd-witness AND all the real witnesses of the Steem Blockchain to show your support for decentralization!
This sounds like so much fun! Will definitely take part in the challenge! :D Memes are my thing!
I'm not an artist or meme-maker, but I know we have lots of great ones!
Neat idea! I will try to take a photo that captures the essence of this movement. Time to think.
I look forward to seeing all the creative entries.
Remember to post it both on the community and on your steem Blog.
How do you do that ? I am sorry to ask, but I am still catching up with all the features of community.
I am known to suck at these things really bad but I think I will give it a try, embarrassment aside :D
Btw read your post about that crypto meet up in Berlin too. So is that where you decided to make the base for your current European mission? I thought it was Austria... Anyway, good luck over there buddy :)
Our community continues to amaze me! This contest aught to be entertaining!
already made some and today will be the new one. I'm in.
An opportunity for our artists to show all their talent and creativity.
With art you can also defend Steem. Go for it!
pd: badgers know how to defend themselves
Great contest here @Anomadsoul. A few days ago, I made a long essay blog on the theme of this contest. You may check it out here. Nobody can buy a community for real.
Great to see this initiative but lending your voice to onboarding and educating new users to help us counter the attempted hostile attack would be much more helpful and also be a more effective strategy for us to actually come out victorious.
Disclaimer: Just an impartial observation on my part and not intended as an attack on you, Ocd or @blocktrades.
That such a disclaimer is necessary should be illuminating about the changing landscape of our community.
Cheers and keep fighting the good fight.
Awesome idea, @anomadsoul! I'm definitely going to keep my eye open for results I can tweet out! Since I created this gif last week (inspired by a tweet from @andrarchy), I'm not going to enter it into the contest, but thought I'd drop it here so people can share it, if they'd like. 😊

Good luck everybody! 🍀
Community does not matter. It is the product that matters.

Well I cant be left out in this challenge. A newbies can never take over steem. I💓steem
Below is the link to my post on steem and on twitter.
Sounds cool. I look forward to read the entries.

Good and fun initiative, @anomadsoul! Here's my post:
Here's the link to my post: https://steempeak.com/hive-174578/@free-reign/challenge-steem-the-honey-badger-of-communities
That's my entry
Always original, Anomadsoul!!!
Here we go! ;) https://steempeak.com/hive-174578/@doze/ocd-challenge-steem-the-honey-badger-of-communities Steem On my friend!
Now that STEEM HONEY BADGER has Immobilized Justin's Crew, It's GAME OVER !!!
There is an epic hype about challenges. What’s the most epic challenge?
What's the point of all this hype as long as we lose our freedom and most likely our life? Reclaiming our freedom might be our epic challenge. Are you (whoever reads this) tough enough to take our challenge or is our challenge too big for you?
I was informed that this is not a honey badger, but rest assured, he identifies as one, so don't be a bigot. :-P
I had a lot of fun on this one

I think Steem still has a future. You can fork a chain but you can't fork a community.
¡Alright! over here my Ratelian post:
And over here Twittering Stoffle's wittiness!!
The power of the community will always prevail over any tyranny!
Here's my ticket, erik friend! Greetings!
Hey guys, here my entry for this super challenge!
I wasn't sure if you wanted us to drop our posts here but thought I may as well just in case. I've gone all out with a meme, writing a poem and performing it on YouTube which I've shared all over twitter including directly to Justin Sun on one of his announcement tweets about some Tron BS.
P.s. fulfilled all the criteria regarding sharing to twitter with tags and tagged Justin Sun in on my tweets in the hopes that he'll watch my performance and realize that we're up for a fight.
Like a honey badger fighting off a lion attacking its young, steemians never give up and will fight to the death!
"Let's fight decentralization and this hostile takeover together." Let's fight centralization....right? ;)
