RE: How Steem Became Hive

in #steemlast year

7.Witnesses make the difficult decision to deploy soft fork 22.2. It's described as a temporary measure: https://peakd.com/steem/@softfork222/soft-fork-222 Individual witnesses publish their views. One consensus witness disagrees with freezing liquid tokens and is voted out.

The first sentence of the post linked is:

"This statement has been co-authored by the Steem community, which includes witnesses, developers & stakeholders."

This is completely misleading, I haven't been asked anything...even though I am a developer as well as a stakeholder...

I think they meant "the top 20" since most of them are "witnesses, developers & stakeholders."

Let's stop blinding people, we all know that the people who did that, they did it for their own sake and not for the community otherwise they would have actually asked the community and I'm pretty sure that several people, like the witness that got voted out, would have had a totally different opinion...

But I guess that's the problem of DPoS in its current implementation. Let's not forget that what's happening right now on Steem could easily happen on Hive as well...

This other sentence by itself proves how centralized Steem/Hive are "This update is reversible, and is simply to be used to ensure that the security and decentralization of the Steem blockchain remains intact." (it wouldn't be that "easy" to deploy an update otherwise)

In the end, I personally don't think this post is showing the complete truth.
