I have been living under a rock. I was aware that J Sun bought Steemit, but did not really follow the story and felt that it will be resolved peacefully. Apparently, both sides did not meet eye-to-eye and now we have HIVE. I am pleasantly surprised and fairly excited with the news that I only recently discovered.
This is the first time that I went on the Hive Blog, first comment, first upvote. Kudos to you @liondani.
