Do not allow the power down period to be reduced.
Currently Steem is going through some rough times. Witnesses steal funds and value from Steemit and then they fight back by taking over the governance and voting out witnesses and hard forking.
All this should tank the price.
But it does not. The reason is simple: Exchanges used customer funds to power up to have more control over the chain. Any withdrawals from exchanges has to be bought by the exchanges.
So if you care about the price:
- Withdraw all the funds you have on exchanges.
- Make sure to reject any witness that proposes a reduction of the power down periods
Everybody else. Stop stealing funds and messing with peoples properties.
