Recent actions taken by Steemit Inc. and Tron foundation in response to Softfork 22.2 was a great disappointment.

There was never threat to nullify Steemit stake or any stake for that matter, also hardfork was never an option for me and many witnesses who voiced their concerns, now it might be. It was temporary and after Town hall meeting, would most likely turn back to status quo.

But now things have changed, this action confirmed the real threat which I thought was only theoretical. One entity controlling entire chain consensus!

Softfork 22.2 was proxied decision by around 180,000 steem users (number of votes to all top 20 witnesses). But Softfork 22.5 is basically decision of 1 entity who has probably around 10-15 people.

As one of the top voted witness by community with unique 18,134 users approving witness good-karma, I have decided to protest just like @gtg, this action taken against decentralized nature of Steem and damaging its core value. Sadly integrity and trust is fractured, chain is centralized... 22.5 making 22.2 invalid, so I am running protest version 22.4444

Looking forward to join Town hall meeting on 4th and 6th of March, 2020... It will be crucial for Future of Steem or "Steem classic"


Any explanation what 22.444 version really is?

Protest version. 4 is an unlucky number in China. Hence the 4 4's.

I really hope that you can make a different on the town hall meeting. It's so confusing for us here on steemit. It's okay with the soft fork...22.2 but.. what's that 22.5? Ridiculous!

i agree with you, except the "meeting" will be more like an ultimatum.
but i'll be happy if i can keep my stake in both steem and steem classic, even better if esteem & steempeak would be on steem classic + SMTs.

I also 100% agree with you! The STINC decision really was apparently wrong. What the freak is going on?

I hope some sort of compromise can be found. Steemit have overreacted to legitimate concerns and pissed off a lot of people. I want to see the platform live up to its potential and the communities endure. You have my vote.

I admire your hope my friend

When things seem bad hope is all you have. This community can do amazing things.

I see you have some spare witness votes. They can make a difference.

Hmmm - so who would you suggest to vote? It is now Sun deciding the witness, before him it was freedom and blocktrades.

I think we need "real" talks between the parties - at the moment there is only emotional behaviour on both sides.

You can pick any of the old witnesses who stand some change of getting into the top 20. For now we just need a few up there to have some say. I think some rivalries are being put aside for now for the good of Steem.

But wouldn't it be better then to focus our votes on some dedicated ones instead pf spreading to all to make sure at least some have a real chance to be in the top 20?

People are concentrating on voting for the top 20 original witnesses. You can use your other 10 as you like. I'm just buying a little more Steem to increase my vote.

You have my vote. Thank you for taking the time to address this major issue. I am stunned by the recent events and we need to take a stand!

I give 100% vote for you 👌👌👌👌👌👌👌 shere more info whats up there and how all moves. This makes as more strong.

By fighting each other we are just making things worst for the whole STEEM.

Wish we as respectful businessmen could get along fine, and build a big empire.

There will be a REAL town hall meeting in the PALnet discord server today at 12PM EST, 5PM UTC with REAL Steemians and REAL witnesses.

Great! We stand for the community.

Love seeing you on the #1 witness spot as I right this comment. We can do this! I came to Steemit for the grassroots vibe years ago, only to be directly and negative affected by an arrogant millionaire. However, I am impressed by the way us Steemians have rallied the last several days, it's really inspiring. !BEER !trdovoter !giphy town+hall
