Original Content Decentralized Hive statement

Hello dear Steemians, it's very sad that it has come to this where this will be the last time we'll call you that but with the actions of the recent buyer of Steemit.com and a lot of stake it is safe to assume that there's nothing decentralized about Steem anymore and won't be in the future neither. Not only does that defeat the purpose of OCD but adding to that there is also censorship now without DMCA notices on the Steemit front-end and it is time to say good bye.

With every chapter ending, there's a new one beginning and this one already starts out very exciting from the first page. We've always been a community witness and our main priority has been to distribute stake as wide as possible even with the centralized Steemit stake in existence we tried our best and it was really heartwarming to see the community band together and take back so many real witnesses on top. Now we will continue to do so on the Hive blockchain where stake is already way more distributed and the chain is a lot more decentralized and has close to zero chance of being taken over in the hostile manner it has been here. Many may say this is a flaw of DPOS but our community proved that when push comes to shove it is also one of its strengths and something that makes all of this possible with how advanced our chain is compared to the rest.


I didn't just want to list all the changes so they are instead written in italics if that's all you're interested in finding out in this post.

With the ninjamined stake aside now there is a lot of new hope being generated and we are all looking forward to the future of Hive. From the snapshot tomorrow and forward the OCD team will only be nominating posts for the compilations on the Hive blockchain but we will be posting onto both blockchains until our stake here is gone. Since community goes first we will still be making good use of our voting power and trails here but seeing as that will constantly be evaporating with power downs I don't think there will be too much to curate in the near future. Content creators may also not feel as free to post here if they have to watch out what they say because a company might hide their content which is something many here today have left their prior centralized platforms for.

We will also be removing the rule of not cross-posting your own posts onto the OCD community on the Steem blockchain, so go crazy! :)

I don't think there is a lot more to say although as I started writing this I thought there would be. We will be doing some more free hand curation onto the smaller communities we are supporting on the Steem blockchain but on Hive it will remain the same for the time being until we know how much stake we have to work with if we can increase the amount of daily posts from each of the communities we can support. There, that's another change I just remembered!

Blockchain is beautiful, make the most of it and the power it gives users and stakeholders and we will see and curate you in the chain of freedom!

A big thank you to everyone for these crazy 3 years of OCD curation and distribution! This is literally the best community I've ever been part of and I can't wait to see it grow and take over the world.

    One step ahead of you and it has nothong to do with crossposting (or steem) 😜

    See you in Hive, I'm turning my steem account into a shitposting machine until that is no longer possible.

    It's so great to see everyone on board this new chapter and this community bonding! Thank you for all you have done here, I still remember how thrilled I was when I got my first OCD vote. See you on the other side!

  • @mobi72

    This post has given me two feelings; sadness, to see our beloved blockchain in this position where most of its community member have lost their hopes for its future, hope and happiness, for moving forward with them towards a better future (I sincerely hope so) and in the direction which was, in fact, set for Steem.

  • @old-guy-photos

    Yep we all have to play the hand we have been dealt. We all did out best on Steem and we will do our best on Hive as well.

  • @tegoshei

    I'm going to miss being called a "Steemian", but we should move on... to some place better. <3 See you in HIVE.. Thanks for the non-stop support @ocd... :) I will always be grateful. Well, it's going to be an awesome new beginning for everyone. :)

    PS: I love the tags! hahaha

  • @fionasfavourites

    See you on Hive in the next day or so

  • @bryan-imhoff

    where stake is already way more distributed and the chain is a lot more decentralized

    This is one statement I’d disagree with... but not in a bad way!

    I’m beyond excited for Hive but I think it’s important to recognize that particularly in terms of reward pool distribution (not as worried about governance now!) we’re likely emerging into a less distributed phase. Hive enthusiasts will hold their airdrop and some will buy more as Steemit Inc. loyalists and short term profiteers sell, thereby consolidating Hive tokens into fewer hands. I know I hope to increase my Hive power by selling Steem for Hive! I think there are many with the same thought, which will be great for support of this early token economy, but will lead to further pooling of resources.

    DApps that served as a pipeline for distributing to their communities millions of SP worth of voting power from @misterdelegation no longer have that “muscle.”

    Now, more than ever we need good curation projects and every “legacy” user benefitting from this head start focused on recruiting and supporting new accounts.

    I think the community features will be a huge help, but we need to be vigilant about growing the Hive and incentivizing new users!

    See you in the new colony tomorrow!

  • @molometer

    I joined steemit for the very reason you mentioned. To get away from centralised controlled web sites.

    Steemit is dead long live Hive! 👍🏃 See you over there

  • @yahialababidi

    To quotations that are dear to me, that fit this occasion:

    Don't grieve. Anything you lose comes around in another form.



    The think of value is that which survives the shipwreck.


    See you on the other side, Acid ...


  • @rezoanulvibes

    This is just the beginning of a new chapter!

  • @carlgnash

    Good to hear. If anyone was on the fence before, surely the recent censorship has to put an end to any talk of supporting both chains. The two main draws of Steem(it) were always that it was a decentralized and censorship resistant social media network. Neither of those things are true anymore, so moving to Hive is really the only choice at this point.

  • @tinabrezpike

    This is a really big step for all of us...I'm still not sure what to do...I'm here because of writing and learning new stuff but so much has changed in those months 🤦‍♀️ you guys are doing great job, and thank u for all your upvotes in the past...hope we will see us again...

  • @carita-feliz

    Looks interesting, I might as well start posting again :D

    Will Hive have tribes as well?

  • @julianhorack

    Farewell it's been a good run, now let's hope the airdrop of Hive token will preserve all our hard-earned crypto over all these years of posting and accumulating. It's going to be interesting today, the price of steem is already maxxing out the volatility index.

  • @deepu7

    See you in Hive @ocd

  • @forykw

    Another’s historical moment and a new beginning.

    All within this COVID-19... and Crypto crazy’s

    It almost looks I am steroids!!!

  • @ammonite

    Thank you and the team for the great curation efforts on Steem. You really kept many a content creator eager to create, me included. Let us hope that Hive will make content king again and will fulfill the promise of Steem.

  • @gringo211985

    Hi @ocd I have had an idea of how we can take our content with us to Hive by basically removing our content from steemit and replacing with a link and message along the lines of "original content moved to hive.io/@username by original author" but please check out my idea here https://steemit.com/hive/@gringo211985/seo-solution-for-hive-io-let-s-take-our-content-with-us and hopefully we can get this idea over to all steemians so that hive.io will rank for OUR content!!!

  • @uyobong
