Announcing the Launch of Hive Blockchain

The buzz is real! After weeks of hard teamwork, we're announcing the launch of the new Hive blockchain.

This is an exciting time, and an opportunity to channel the love and power of a resilient and tenacious community into collaborative development for the future of social blockchain.

Hive is a passionate effort, created by a large group of Steem community members who have long looked to move towards true decentralization and to help develop the code base. The years of distribution issues and reliance on a central entity for code and infrastructure has been at the heart of a revolution of sorts, and the new Hive blockchain is the culmination of stepping up to meet the challenge of returning to shared values of protecting and celebrating the vibrant community that has grown around our ecosystem.

Check out the FAQ below for info on the launch of Hive.



What is Hive and why was it created?

Hive is a DPOS governance blockchain created by implementing a hard fork of existing Steem code.

The intention of this community-driven fork is to support and build on the strong Steem community values that have made our ecosystem so diverse and exciting. This new direction steps away from the burden of the Steemit Inc. ninja-mined stake, which has impacted the long term ability to work towards further development and decentralization for years.

Hive has begun with a talented and committed team of community developers who are already paving the way to implement much awaited improvements and robust new developments to the blockchain. It is exciting to see the community โ€“ from devs and business owners to passionate end users โ€“ stepping forward to embrace and contribute to the potential of Hive. This renewed spirit, combined with a renewed codebase and a focus on working more closely with the entire ecosystem, is key to the success and possibilities for the future of social blockchain.

What is the difference between Hive and Steem?

Hive is a fork of the Steem blockchain and runs completely independently from the existing chain. All valid accounts on the Steem blockchain will receive an airdrop on Hive. (more details below)

While the Hive chain is a fork of the Steem code, the intention is to take responsibility to build something even better. The initial Hive launch will be a direct copy of existing blockchain with a few small upgrades, which will allow us to get back to community discussion on the direction for future development, needed changes, and most wanted chain-level features.

The spirit of Steem and the goal of decentralization has always been to move away from a single point of authority, and to capitalize on and encourage the potential that has gathered in our community. Hive is drawing on the huge range of talent in our ecosystem to accelerate development, improve communication, and return to a focus on ease of use, onboarding, and marketing. The desire to move towards better decentralization and to connect people via blockchain has never been lost, and it's what makes Hive so needed now.

What happens when Hive launches?

When The Hive blockchain launches, existing Steem accounts will appear on the Hive Network as well. You will have two accounts: the current one on the Steem, and a new Hive account, which will be pre-populated with all of your current Steem content and information.

The history of these two accounts will be the same, but from the snapshot point onward, the accounts will be independent from one another. Actions you take on one network will not be reflected on the other. This means that future content and transactions will belong to whichever account you use.

If you post on Hive, it will not show up on Steem, and vice versa. The two chains will be completely independent of one another after launch.


When will Hive launch?

The Hive blockchain launch will be at 10am EST/14:00 UTC, Friday, March 20th. (countdown at https://hive.io/) All of the magic will happen this week! The snapshot and airdrop will take place back to back at the time of launch.

Where can I find Hive's code?

Here is the public open source repo for Hive:

https://github.com/openhive-network/hive/releases


As a STEEM holder, what do I get in the Hive airdrop?

All valid STEEM stakeholders will receive a perfectly mirrored balance of their current STEEM holdings in the new HIVE coin. This will include matching amounts of current liquid STEEM, Steem Power, and SBD. All other account state data, such as claimed accounts, delegations, etc. will be mirrored onto Hive.

For example: if your Steem account has 10 STEEM, 5 SBD, and 1000 SP, your new Hive account will have 10 HIVE, 5 HBD, and 1000 HP.

You will not need to claim anything. Simply log in with your existing Steem account details and you will have your new HIVE coins in your wallet and be able to start using the blockchain.

The Hive airdrop will only be performed on the current version of the Steem blockchain (as of the date of this post). Any "emergency hardforks" performed prior to the airdrop will not be eligible. Further, any exchange that participates in such a hardfork prior to the airdrop date will null and void the ability to participate in the airdrop for its off-chain balance holding customers.


How do I access my Hive account to post content and send Hive coins?

You can access your Hive account by simply logging in on the Hive Network using your existing Steem account keys. The first frontend available will be https://hive.blog. This is currently pointed at the Steem blockchain, but will be switched to Hive at launch time. Other popular interfaces are completing the switch over to Hive or finishing new products, and will be announcing when they are ready to use!

Who is behind the development of Hive?

There are currently over 30 experienced developers contributing to the new ecosystem, alongside many committed community members working on multiple aspects of Hive. These individuals may announce their participation through their own accounts in the future. This a true community effort, and therefore is open to all. Hive will remain open source, and open to everyone who wants to contribute to the future development of the blockchain. Testnet will be available after this post is published, so feel free to comment here if you would like to access and we'll reach out. The full codebase will move to a public repo on Thursday, March 19th, prior to launch. Updates will be made to this post and via this account.

What improvements have been added?

The most important improvements and decisions will be made after initial launch with a chance for proper feedback from the community. To successfully launch, there are some aspects that needed to be addressed immediately, including prevention of exchanges from participating in governance attacks (as we witnessed on the Steem Blockchain).

To prevent governance (or funding) attacks, a 30 day delay has been added on crediting vests towards witness and SPS votes. Further governance changes will need to be developed alongside the community.

This delay means that after an account โ€œpowers upโ€ or stakes funds, there will be a 30 day delay before those vests can be used towards voting on governance (witnesses) or through voting in the SPS. For all other actions, there is no delay and vests are immediately available.

This is an initial way for us to mitigate this risk while continuing to improve the system as a whole, and without deciding on governance changes before returning to collection of wider community input.

Will all Steem accounts be included in the HIVE airdrop?

The goal of Hive is to continue moving towards true decentralization, and therefore the launch airdrop will include all accounts who have showcased these same values and shared goals.

The only accounts who will not be included in the initial airdrop are those containing the Steemit Inc ninja-mined stake, and those who actively contributed to (and publicly declared support for) the centralization of the Steem Blockchain.

These accounts can still choose to take part in the new chain and their accounts will exist, but they will not be included in the intial airdrop.

Exchanges participating in airdrops are now working on wallet upgrades, and listings are continually being updated.

We're looking forward to the launch of Hive!

There's a lot to come during this extremely busy week, and this post and account will be updated to reflect new information as it becomes available.

Thank you for the spirit of community, and for being a part of the buzz. Looking forward to what's ahead for everyone who wants to get involved... #hiveisalive!

  • @riverhead

    Great to see the manifestation of all the work done by a lot of people who typically do not collaborate with each other. It was fun, contentious, frustrating, but mostly invigorating.

    This is a great new dawn for the community. Throwing off the baggage of the Steemit Ninja Mined Stake is a turning point.

    A heartfelt congratulations to everyone that contributed. It was amazing to observe.

  • @cryptopie

    This is a good start for safe blockchain that is more free from threat of such attacks we see in the steem blockchain.

  • @lukestokes

    And so it begins. Steem as it was meant to be. A blockchain ecosystem by and for the community.

    I hope this becomes a great story for decentralized governance throughout the blockchain ecosystem. The real value is the community. ACTIONS > WORDS.

    Thank you to all who have worked so tirelessly to make this happen. So many have been working non-stop for over a month now, some missing sleep and forsaking other responsibilities to get to this point.

    Thank you.

  • @soyrosa

    Wow, I feel scared about the idea that we're leaving Steem behind, but this post made me feel excited.

    CHEERS to everyone who worked hard on this and I can't wait to see my brand new but also old Hive.blog!

    I am looking forward to how the witness situation is going to be fixed so that no one can buy all the top 20 spots and pull a justin on the hive. For me this is one of the most vulnerable spots to protecting the community. We were told many times that what happened could not happen, I hope steps will be taken to prevent or at least decrease the odds of it happening again.

  • @erickpinos

    Looking forward to it.

    Will all the SCOT tokens also be duplicated (PAL, LEO)? And what about the great tools like Steem Engine and Steem Keychain. Hopefully it won't require too much development effort to make these tools Hive-compatible.

  • @themanualbot

    This is revolution at its finest! I hope real witnesses can pull this well through and get us to real decentralization. Finally, on friday, we are free from incompetent leadership.

    Exciting times ahead!

  • @redheadpei

    Yes, sounds fantastic ๐Ÿ‘

  • @davidfar

    so in this new platform, are there anyone who would listen to people? if someone ask them to improve their platform or suggesting new features? that was one of the reasons I never had any connection/communication with Steemit's developers, because they never listened to my suggestions as a user when I was writing comments on steemit's blog, I hope your platform is different.

  • @jonsnow1983

    There is no way to put this into words, I mean, having a second chance is something you don't find nowadays and this man, believe me, is a great chance to those journeymen and fighters who didn't understand anything at first to start all over again with all the experience. I don't know what else to say boss, I just feel great. I don't know if I'm eligible for the airdrop but count me in. I wish you good fortune in the wars to come.

    Few questions for the more advanced blockchain experts...

    1. If we 'end' delegation over the next few days, is that Steem power in limbo when the snapshot takes place, or is it better to just keep everything as is until the hard fork?
    1. I'm sure this will come up, but what's going to happen to Steem-Engine tokens and tribes....This is a huge part of my online business and have an entire community of entrepreneurs looking to know what they should do...

    So excited to join my fellow bees ;^)


    Quick Question: Is there a way to not carry over my old content onto Hive? What contributed to the decision in not just starting "fresh" and having a "clean slate" for the new chain? Seems like a lot of bloat to carry over, but I'm assuming this came from a "keeping content alive" standpoint? I know an opt-out may be too much work to implement, but it would be nice to have :^)

    Here is an idea i put together today. Some food for thought (which can also include anonymous peer to peer account reputation voting)

  • @retrocommodore

    People that want to actively participate in the new Hive blockchain and use the Brave browser and have automatic payments set up for the Steemit website should check their Brave BAT settings to make sure their automatic payments are going where they want them to go.

    By the way, I really like the new logo.

    Will any of the data on the testnet be transferred over to the mainnet when it's launched?

  • @ragnarokdel

    If you fork out mined steem, shouldnt you fork all of it? I dont understand why Steem's ninja mine is wrong but somehow others who profited from the method steem used to be earned arent getting forked out.

    It would be much better to start from scratch. Give every steem account a 15 SP equivalent. Nobody starting with an edge on anyone. It's just shoveling snow forward in the hopes that you wont have to shovel it later.

    PS: Perhaps banning bad actors (lower than let's say 30 reputation) from participating in the airdrop might be a good thing as well. We dont need bible quotes on hive unless they buy their way in.

Monetary value cannot be "hardforked" in the real world. Despite the Fed saying it can be, and also doing airdrops. But who gives a fuck in times like this...

  • @drakos

    The only accounts who will not be included in the initial airdrop are those containing the Steemit Inc ninja-mined stake, and those who actively contributed to (and publicly declared support for) the centralization of the Steem Blockchain.

    These accounts can still choose to take part in the new chain and their accounts will exist, but they will not be included in the intial airdrop.

    Awwww I can feel some people weeping already.

    those who actively contributed to (and publicly declared support for) the centralization of the Steem Blockchain.

    Christmas 2019: "Steem looks interesting; think I'll buy a few, power up and check back in a year. Not sure about all this witness stuff though. Think I'll just proxy to the local community account; what's the worst that could happen?"

    Now's not the time to be vindictive. We need to find ways to include people, instead of looking for reasons to exclude them.

    I'd like to see everything but SINMS honoured, without any purity tests; but if the plan is to exclude balances which proxied vests to an account which voted for bad witnesses; can we at least exclude those balances who proxied before everything got ugly?

    If you build your home on the bones of your enemies; don't be surprised if its haunted.

  • @friendster

    The history of these two accounts will be the same, but from the snapshot point onward, the accounts will be independent from one another. Actions you take on one network will not be reflected on the other. This means that future content and transactions will belong to whichever account you use.

    What happens with the "recovery account" that is pointing to @steem on most users. For the HIVE fork will you change the default recovery account to some other default account? I see a potential problem if not.

  • @fago

    Hello, everybody!

    Can someone explain to me exactly what I have to do to participate in the Airdrop with my Steem coins that are currently still in my Binance account?

    If I have understood correctly, Binance must agree to participate in the Airdrop so that Binance can distribute the Airdrop proportionally to its customers (including me). So far my Steem coins have been blocked because Binance has used the Steem coins of its customers (probably mine as well) to vote for Justin Sun's Socks Witnesses.

    What if Binance does not participate in the Airdrop? Should I transfer my Steem coins to my Steem account as soon as possible? I am concerned that the withdrawals may still be blocked. What would still be possible then?

    And on which exchanges will the Hive coins be listed? Setting up an account at an exchange usually takes several days up to 2 weeks. You know, because of KYC. I would like to exchange the Steem coins for HIVE coins.

    I very much welcome this step and would like to participate in this event, also because I want to create a community for the vision of Protopolis and eagerly await the SMT's.

    But I also have a lot to lose if I miss important steps now.

    Many thanks in advance!

  • @anggreklestari

  • @glenalbrethsen

    Hey, @hiveio.

    About the snapshot. I understand with the air drop it will include all liquid STEEM, SBD and SP we have in our accounts at the time it is taken. What I haven't seen asked or answered (sorry if I missed it) is how post payouts will be handled. Sounds like posts will be there, but since the payouts may come after the snapshot, will/can any of that be forwarded to HIVE too?

    @richardcrill, @jonyoudyer, not sure if you know yet or not but thought this might interest you if there is a clear answer.

  • @epicdice

    Any guidance for existing DAPP?

  • @funtraveller

    It was demonstrated by Steem-Engine Tokens that it's possible to fork-out steem, that was just the mock-up. Hive is the real deal. If all of us (real community) will migrate to Hive then Steem will lose it's value.

    If the Community is the real value of this blockchain then I'm confident that Hive will be more valuable than Steem. In that case, I'm happy to migrate as well.

    All the best!

    What about the initial inflation rate? The current inflation of Steem is going to be the new initial inflation rate in HIVE?

    It would have been better if HIVE had a much lower initial supply less than 100 million. The idea is to make HIVE at par with 1 USD consistently.

Now, we're finally cutting loose StInc and it's ninja-stake, and the situation has given us BY FAR the most press we've ever had... It's a good day to be a Steemian. What's our new name going to be?

    Steem is dead. Long live Hive.

  • @chadmichaellibby

    Before we jump into this, can we get some more details on the changes to the code? Also , I`m not crazy of the name. Sounds like something inclusive, or collectivist.

I can't imagine Sun is very happy with this, but then again, I would rather look towards what we can build rather than what we can salvage. Stay strong and make sure your OPSEC is up to snuff.

  • @welshstacker

    Hi @hiveio, I know this may seem like a silly question, and I know the answer is probably already going to be YES, but-

    WILL ALL STEEM KEPT ON "SAVINGS" BE CONVERTED TO HIVE?? Or is it just liquid steem, SBD and SP?

    With the 3 day powerdown back to liquid, I'm hoping not to lose and of my savings?

    Thank you everyone and good luck.

  • @atomcollector

    How exciting!!

    The centralisation of the Steemit Inc stake has always worried me and now we will put that behind us and move to a better place!

    I have a question about Steem Engine. Will it move to the new chain and what about all the tokens? Should we sell them all and convert to STEEM to benefit from the airdrop? Thanks!

  • @ervin-lemark

  • @knowhow92

    Sounds great guys! Steem savings will also be transfered into HIVE Chain right? Cause lots of people have ton of Steem in savings.

  • @free-reign

    I'm so happy to see the commitment that we're definitely doing this, and not letting Justin have us waste more time going through another round of his BS to stall so he can continue his despicable actions further. After hearing "Dave" yesterday, he confirmed to me that he's just another smooth talker doing Justin's bidding. He said Justin is his friend and Justin is a good, honest person. That convinced me that Dave is just another Roy. I have no trust in him.

    This is such great news and I can't wait to get started on HIVE! ๐Ÿป

  • @felt.buzz

    I am really looking forward to HIVE.

    It has been hard the last few weeks, especially as Sun's moves came after a long winter on Steem. Spring had finally arrived (even if value was still low), dapps were flourishing, communities were here, SMTs on the horizon. There was a real positive buzz in the blockchain.

    And then...

    Well, I am not prepared to be dictated to by someone who throws his money around.

    I won't be bought.

    I am not a developer, just an end user, but I will do everything I can to make Hive a success. To be a part of this exciting Community. Because it seems to me that is where the STEEM passion is.

    Exciting times for the Community!

    @Felt.Buzz is excited to be a part of the BUZZ!

    The only accounts who will not be included in the initial airdrop are those containing the Steemit Inc ninja-mined stake, and those who actively contributed to (and publicly declared support for) the centralization of the Steem Blockchain.

    Just to be clear, are you excluding the entire Korean community because they voted for JSun's witnesses to keep the balance?

  • @pibara

    Here are some thoughts on why some more time and effort would be well spent. Instead of messing with specific accounts, a well thought out monetary rebase point combined with a replay, a measure that obviously would take some time to get right, could completely purge all ninja-mined stake from the airdrop.

    I believe a rebase plus replay would be the only measure that could truly stop Hive from inheriting the ninja-mined shitcoin reputation that STEEM has with much of the crypto investor community.

  • @jacobpeacock

    @hiveio @gandalf How will the account recovery work for those accounts that are currently setup with Steemit/Steem as their recovery account?

    Will a new recovery account be set for them automatically or will we have to change them ourselves?

    Also what if it was the Hive blockchain and the HONEY token? <-- Just an idea!

    Thanks.

    As someone who wasn't here at the birth of Steem -- and many of us weren't --, but often looking at the history of Steem, with its flaws and achievements, I'm excited to be around at the birth of the new Hive blockchain! Hive doesn't start from scratch, which is the best decision for most, but hopefully will be able to find and keep the much needed spark that often seemed to elude Steem, in the eyes of the larger crypto verse.

    Great steps forward. Binance have just announced support for the new HIVE token: https://www.binance.com/en/support/articles/360040692692

    However, @blocktrades and team, please look at the wording very carefully as discrepancies may arise.

    Especially

    STEEM tokens held in sub-accounts will be combined into the corresponding master account. Sub-accounts will not separately receive any HIVE tokens.

    May need clarification.

  • @blind-spot

    Has account creation and claiming also been improved on hive?

  • @paragism

    Hope decentralisation will win this time. What a way to show the power of decentralised community to the crypto imperialist Justin Sun! Steemit is not steem and a community definitely can't be bought.

    I'll look forward to support the new chain. Steem really has no value without the dapp eco system built over the time and the vibrant community. It is true that whole value of steem can be transferred to the new chain by participation of the community.

    I'll like to know more details about the accounts which are not eligible to receive the airdrop.

Just make sure and make a good mobile app and have account creation be free. Otherwise, growth will be slow. These are the lessons from the past. Don't ignore them!

  • @paragism

    Hope decentralisation will win this time. It is practical way to get rid of crypto imperialist Justin Sun and to teach him the lesson of life time.

    A community can not be bought. The value of steem is derived from the huge dapp eco system built over the time and the vibrant active community. It is realistic to think that the whole value can be transferred from steem blockchain to the new chain by participation of the community and dapp eco system.

    I'll look forward to the new chain. Hardly a few community members will be interested in Justin Sun's proposed tron based steem token. Sun can definitely relish his ninza mined stakes and watch to see the value erosion with time if he enjoys to become the king of a deserted island. He has axed his own foot.

    Good luck to the devs of new chain and the exchanges supporting. I'll like to know more information about the excluded accounts for airdrop and the team members of the project.

    Are you taking any input from the community regarding this new chain?

    If Steem forks there are three features I'd like to see added:

    Vote decay - only active accounts should have influence on the network.

    Voting rewards - WAX is already doing this. Token holders should be rewarded for participating in governance.

    Mechanism for protocol upgrades - similar to Tezos and Telos there should be a democratic process by which we can vote on upgrades to the chain itself.

    Hello @hiveio Before you do the hard fork...

    ... and those who actively contributed to (and publicly declared support for) the centralization of the Steem Blockchain. These accounts can still choose to take part in the new chain and their accounts will exist, but they will not be included in the intial airdrop.

    Do they really have declared to prefer a centralized Steem blockchain or have they just argued for compromises and/or a peaceful next-to-each-other to preserve the steem blockchain? I haven't followed tis issue close enough to understand what 'actively contributed to' has meant during the last weeks. If they just have fought to achieve a compromise I think they should receive their Hive too, otherwise we don't give them a fair chance to change their mind. I just would like to avoid to close doors too early... @peekbit ๐Ÿ˜Š

    And i'm the first one to say.

    Divide and conquer just easy to eastablish. And it looks like everyone took a side already... The warmongers now know that it does not matter how many people know this trick.

    It still works.

    And they keep using it.

  • @justtryme90

    Good luck to all involved. I've been shaking my head at Steemit Inc since I joined steem in 2016. Honestly this can only be an upgrade. You can't possibly do any worse than what has already been done here by Steemit inc.

  • @joele

    Is the currently powering down SP included in the airdrop?

  • @len.george

    I am in. Having a "bent" for history and having been using Steem as a permanent record, will the old posts be available with Hive?

  • @steembatangas

    we will support hive!

    I don't know the technical details, how keys (passwords) are mirrored? is recommended to change password after the fork?

  • @networkallstar

    I wish HIVE and it's makers all the best! Of course I am in on Hive too๐Ÿ‘Œโค๏ธโœŒ๏ธ

  • @konti

    Leet's Go! Come on board!

  • @luca1777

    Sounds really good :) I'm powering down some SP, because the situation was rather unstable, just to make Steem more liquid, be able to react... Sold nothing untill now. Will current power downs continue on the Hive Blockchain, and i just power up again..or will they be stopped automatically? And after the snapshot and the airdrop, can i continue with my Hives and "get rid"/sell the Steems, without affecting my Hive account/wallet? Thanks!

  • @lightcaptured

    Looking forward to a fresh start. Hopefully the kindergarten fights won't move over to the new place, but hey, people are people ;)

    Resteeming this as it must go to more users. Or should I start saying "rehiving"? :D

  • @engchitchat

    It would be good if we could delete old and unwanted posts for the first 7 days of the new chain.

  • @bagofincome

    There was no doubt - to join or not. Hive is what our community deserves and we're going to make it better than Steem ever was :)

    will Binance support airdrop?

  • @pqlenator

    Will @Blocktrades support instant trades of HIVE tokens?

  • @lasseehlers

    I have not read the code, but it seems very legit.

    Good job guys.

  • @mermaidvampire

    I'm in! All aboard HIVE!!!

    The only accounts who will not be included in the initial airdrop are those containing the Steemit Inc ninja-mined stake, and those who actively contributed to (and publicly declared support for) the centralization of the Steem Blockchain.

    Yeah, we need to leave those toxic creatures behind.

  • @riskdebonair

    So excited! I always wanted to be part of Hive.

  • @c4cristi3

    Question : what if i have SP delegated to someone else ? Will i be receiving HP for that SP as well ? or just for the SP i have currently available ? Thank you !

  • @amaterasusolar

    I'm surely interested in anything that will assist in sharing awareness of a solution to the psychopaths who are running Our planet presently.ย  Not sure what I do here to facilitate all this, but My hive is Anarchy United.

    So...ย  Please, airdrop Me.

  • @titusfrost

    How do I ensure I am transferred to Hive? I do not want to lose my 11k in steem power and I am one of the longest running accounts on steemit?

    This transition thing is making me nervous that I am gonna lose all my STEEM / SBD over some nonsense regarding hard forks.

  • @introvert-dime

    So everyone will get equal hive tokens, those powering down and those who voted Jerry as witness in the past?

  • @ponpase

    HIVE ON!!!

    Great News Good Luck ๐Ÿ’– Waiting Friday ๐Ÿ‘

  • @mariluna

    Thank you for informing. I hope these new changes will be of benefit to the community if I participate in aidrop.

  • @clareartista

    Might someone here know why I can't seem to upload photos in my replies on Hive? It keeps saying 'error uploading' or similar: I've cleared my cache and checked my Brave settings... Thanks in anticipation!

    I've just done post concerning the Hive blacklist. Please have a look. https://steempeak.com/communityfork/@retinox/do-it-for-hive-hive-s-blacklist-should-be-reviewed

  • @gringo211985

    @hiveio I am coming straight over and will be creating all my content over on Hive! I have an idea to help Hive.io rank better for SEO and a way for many content creators to repatriate their content over on Hive.io. Please take a look at https://steemit.com/hive/@gringo211985/seo-solution-for-hive-io-let-s-take-our-content-with-us which outlines my idea where we basically edit our steemit content to read "content moved to hive.io/@username by original author" this would begin to de-rank steemit.com for the content and will also provide SEO strength to hive.io. We would ideally need a tool to do this as manually would be impossible for some users, but I personally would like to do this, as my content is mine, your content is yours, it's definitely not steemit.inc's content!

  • @rudyardcatling

    so you're gonna censor people who spoke out against you ?

    where did i hear that echo just now ?

    what a crock o' shit

    o wait, does that mean misterdelegation and the steemcleaners protection racket cartel will be gone from steemit itself ?

    awesome ... o wait no

    they're just gonna hold power over two places then ?

    o wait

    you know after more than three years

    i seriously stopped caring

    so you're gonna censor accounts who spoke out against your staying in power and calling it de-centralized ? don't forget me then
