My Statement on Tron's Acquisition of Steemit


Hello Steemians. As the Head of Communications for Steemit, I apologize for my silence over the last few days. As my teammate @vandeberg said in his post, we’ve been in much the same boat as you all with respect to last week’s announcement that Tron has acquired Steemit Inc.

Screen Shot 2019-10-23 at 4.40.42 PM.png

Immediate Plans for Steem

I want to start off with the most important details. As Justin said in Saturday’s livestream, there are no hard or immediate plans with respect to the Steem blockchain and the migration of Steem applications to the Tron blockchain. There are many potential avenues for connecting these two platforms in mutually beneficial ways that would also preserve them as distinct entities and we look forward to exploring these opportunities with the Tron Team. We have been given every assurance that the path forward will be collaborative and cooperative.

Conflicting Announcements

As far as conflicting announcements on social media, I believe this is due to the fact that we have not yet had the opportunity to interface with Tron’s teams so that we can share information and strategize as a cohesive unit. Once this happens, I believe that we can present more unified, consistent, and technically accurate messaging.

Steem is a unique technology and a unique community. I think the Tron Team (both marketing and engineering) will need some time to grok the system and understand the unique opportunities that this partnership has to offer, which are many.

Community First

Regardless of the outcome, I stand with the community. I believe that we have not yet scratched the surface of Steem’s transformative potential, and nothing is more important to me than working with you all, the community, and my Steemit teammates to reach that potential.

If you would like to hear more of my thoughts on this matter you can watch my recent interview with @exyle below.

Steem on!

Great interview guys.

Mark thanks for stepping up digging for some answers, and @andrarchy, after watching the whole interview I have a feeling that every Steem user / investor should feel a bit more safe, so to speak.

Make us proud peeps! Full Steem ahead

Guessing this means he owns the wallets holding our Steem.

Regardless of the outcome, good luck to you. You seem a likable sort. If he gets rid of many of you left on the payroll after he brings the site/chain over, I imagine your experience here will enable you some sweet opportunities.

Obviously, the transition could have been smoother, but all things considered it says a lot that the team members have been speaking up even before an official Steemit Inc. blog goes up. I would love to see what the team could do with an ample budget and hoping for the best in this cross-blockchain collaboration.

Thank you @andrarchy for stepping out and connect with us, even though this is your personal point of view.
You know the community will stand firm with the lean and mean team. ☺️

Please do keep us posted of the official announcements later.

And it is true. This blockchain is unique because of its unique community; and its full potential yet shown 💪🏻

@mmmmkkkk311 is attempting to use his flags to intimidate Steemians into abandoning their support for @steembasicincome.

He baselessly claims it is a "ponzi scheme" which just shows that either he doesn't understand how it works or (more likely) he just doesn't understand what a ponzi scheme even is! And the blatant hypocrisy in him trying to fight "vote selling" when that is exactly what he did with his bidbot! As as bidbot owner with over a dozen alt accounts he is in no place to judge what is right or wrong here on Steem. Now he is mad that his scam has ended. So like an upset child, he has decided to take out his anger (caused only by his own failures) on other innocent people. Making him nothing more than a big bully!

MK admits to running a bidbot

[Actual account who was "wrecked by @mmmmkkkk311 (for holding sbi shares)"](https://steemit.com/@yapcat)

I am here to counter @mmmmkkkk311's bullying. I will upvote every post/comment that he downvotes. You can support my anti bullying upvotes by delegating (links below) Steem Power to @ilovemk311. And you can help keep this message visible by upvoting this comment or by purchasing SBI shares for @mk311isabully which will help to counter the downvotes that @mmmmkkkk311 will surely send my way. Which I highly encourage him to do as the more downvoting power he wastes on me the less he can use to downvote the real content creators here on Steem that would otherwise become his victims!

Choose a delegation amount

5 | 10 | 20 | 50 | 100 | 500 | 1000

external-content.duckduckgo-1.jpg

I ask YOU my fellow Steemians to help me take a stand for our Steem community.

With this jerk bullying innocent people we are seeing many great content creators leave due to the drama and negativity that @mmmmkkkk311's downvote campaign brings to the blockchain. While he claims he is trying to defend his investment he is actually unwittingly destroying it.

SBI is an initiative that has done nothing but help promote onboarding and community building here on the Steem blockchain. Let us not turn our back on it out of fear for getting downvoted. Instead lets stand up for this great initiative that has helped so many people and helped the Steem community to grow and thrive!

Thank you.

Far too soon for me to take a position on any of these recent developments. Just going with the flow. Whatever happens, happens. Sent my drawing and message like that just to be a freak, because I can, and thought it was humorous.

18.02.2020 07:39

This is a major development, emotionally for the steemic inc and the communities

Either way we can be optimistic and we can be supportive and help do what we do best, be a community that supports Steem.

When someone buys say a rare and fast Ferrari even for super cheap, the first thing the owner does is not to rip out it's V12 engine. The blockchain's autonomy, community, and it's dapp users is that
very engine, there is much much more to be optimistic than not.

I will say I'm happy to see you're enthusiastic about this. As for the business sense side of things I'll say this: I get it.

What do I want, personally? I want things to be fucking awesome around here. I've wanted that for coming on four years and nothing is going to change that. Anyone who is anyone around here put everything they had into this, plus more. Nobody with a brain works towards a goal of failing. The crypto kids of this world want everything to moon for them. As if money grows on trees and everything is supposed to be easy. Anyone who is anyone here knows you can't just howl at the moon all damn night and expect it to come. We're not trying to win the lottery here. Trying to build something great, and a solid future at the same time. Good luck trying to take that drive away from these folks who actually care. It's not going to happen.

Feel like all parties need a win-win, I really don't think it's anyone taking away what we all have put into Steem thus far.

If you think about it, with this acquisition, Tron can't succeed by diminishing Steem nor do I see Steem growing and winning back old users as well as new ones with awesome apps (openlink/openseed, smt, steemit 2.0, and tons of new functionality like embedded secure decentralized chat) without in same way returning the good creds back to Tron Foundation for being the single largest Steem investor and not just the owner of Steemit Inc.

Being in the alt coin family of crypto, we will likely rise both in value and in our support base when other useful crypto succeed as well. In some ways our success is build into each other's good news, only now Tron kindly loosely join to the hip with Steem (for now).

The steady rise of Steem's price as well as resistance to dropping further is a refection of not just demand but of optimism by a growing community of investors/hodlers/and supporters, even without mooning back to highs of $8+.

One thing I'm certain, on the 10 year anniversary of Steem, it will be either hardly any traffic left (failed experiment) or it will have a much much higher traffic and valuable content then it ever had (as its value reflects its community who have invested proof of brain, creativity, support, leadership, and not just financial resources).

My guess is that if you're here for the long term, then you won't have any issues witnessing the awesomeness come to pass (assuming one stay healthy to enjoy the seeds they have sowed as well as the intrinsic rewards of your patience).

Safety tucked away..... maybe someday we'll find a place for cheer leaders and supporter (I should know, next to none of my buddies on Steem have ever given me any surprised encouragement regardless of all the support and info I give out) , until then I guess we'll just keep rewarding popular witnesses, gaming entrepreneurs (and creative hucksters), and always creative weirdos with proof of brain mining; ...can't win them all my good Sir.

It's less about the expecting and much more about belonging.... if Steem crypto culture is not merely investment (as you hope) then we have to form a better way to appreciate, retain, and keep an open mind towards those awesome value added not by just creative or tech beneficiaries..... also we get in person we should return in person (or at least try).....until we evolved to pure information beings, that's still the way we are design, anything less the river does not fully flow

i spoke too soon

little did I know the drama factor amongst Steemian is so great...they (as in the majority of top 20 witnesses) had to start a shit fights against an 800lb gorilla

I know. It's play money. Dude is probably just trolling us all out of boredom.

03.03.2020 11:42
0

It may be play money to him, but not the the exchanges, they have a duty of liquidity to their millions of account holders

Justin did make 1 Very Big Mistake with his version of the soft hardfork, he reduce the power down time to 24hours. So until all the witnesses find a way to heckle all the exchanges to pull in votes to get back control... everyone now can fully powerdown and stay liquid (or keep their crypo in BTC) so they at least have a poncho when the shit really hit the fan

Btw. Most don't know this, but whaleshares drop in value during the witness war was something in tune of 99.898% and until today it's still unresolved. Steem just has to drop to 1/10 from 2500 Sats to a mere 250 Sats (it's still a nice 2100 Sats now) before all the exchanges stop fcuking around.... in 6 months time if BTC is > $20k, you probably could buy back > 200K worth of Steem with BTC. Also if Tim Draper is anywhere near accurate, we should see 250K BTC by late 2022 or early 2023, at that price 8K to 250K, you would do great even with 1 BTC ~ quarter USD Million.

Best case scenario, the witness gains back a majority % of power cause Justin is an idiot turd bag with lots of Steem, we can still powerup all the liquid Steem in 3 seconds.

03.03.2020 12:23
0

Part of his strategy is to make powering down fast and easy. He wants people to power down. He knows they will. I'm sure there's a brain in that head somewhere. People power down, witnesses have fewer vests backing them.

I don't know what I'm going to do, when it comes to money. I didn't plan on touching this for a long time and I don't like gambling on market predictions.

I don't open up to people much here. My life isn't that great. Doing the art and entertaining people from time to time, that's what kept me alive these past few years. I didn't have much to live for before all this. The place literally fell into my lap. It all just became a challenge I wanted to conquer. I don't know what more I can do.

This place made me wealthy at one point. I was able to convert a little bit into a lot back in 2018. Plus I still had nearly everything here. Stroke of luck. The well is running dry though. I didn't waste that treat either. Very simple life. I didn't think it would get this bad. By summer I might be screwed. I think I'm already prepared mentally to lose everything and be on my way. I tried.

03.03.2020 12:44
0

I'm sorry to hear. All our struggles help us become closer and better to one another, I feel those who have too much or live in indulgence, they lose touch with humanity. We all wish we converted more back in start of 2018, it was the first for too many I suppose, you were wiser and more prepared than most then.

Also you might be in luck, according to 10 years of data, the 2 years btc bear market is coming to an official end, and to think it's almost 9K in a bear market, can't help but wonder where it will all go; when we look back in 12 months, I think we will be pleasantly surprize.

All I know is technologically, there has been leaps of innovation, VC are now pouring in moneys to create different strains of lightning network so it's a fraction of a $0.01 and faster speed. It helps that adoption is taking hold as more an more folks lose confidence in government and elite entities feeding corporations like Justin Sun's tron foundation. I would think it make sense to keep some of what you accumulated crypto in BTC, if not at least 1 whole BTC then a quarter or half will set you right in the coming years.

btw. If you live to serve, then you lived an honorable life, and worthy too. We have nothing but meaning and pride in what we do in life. I can think of nothing better than service to others, or in other words your life of some meaning would be the envy of millions without.

To see awesome one must be awesome. Or at least not have to much suck. the trick around steem is there are many all around shouting “SUCK”. So if your not careful you fall down a suck hole and its harder to see or be the awesome from down there in the suck well.

I just meant that Ned and Dan have moved on. I absolutely agree that the community is what really matters, and to @smooth's point @vandeberg can be viewed as a founder (I would call him the true architect of Steem). I think that Ned and Dan always had this larger than life presence on Steem that made it difficult for the community to form its own identity and now that they have moved on, I believe we are ready to embrace our roles as the "real" founders of this technology.

18.02.2020 16:14

I knew what you meant. It's all good. It is different now though. I haven't been afraid to hit that reset button in life. Feels kinda like that.

Damn near impossible to get to know Ned and Dan while they were behind the wall of public figure persona. But when you're surrounded by literally thousands of talented creatives, writers, producers, and the rest of this long list, that public figure persona doesn't really place them on a pedestal, because we all have one.

In the short time I have in steemit I observe that there are all kinds of people with all kinds of ways to express themselves. So the hostility that I see is nothing new. If Justin has time sailing through these waters he must have noticed it too. I don't think he wastes his time thinking about it. and good that he doesn't. Greetings friend @crypto.piotr.

Glad to finally hear you chime in on this @andrarchy. It's also good to know that people like yourself are working on our behalf behind the corporate veil. I know you'll be working to achieve an outcome to the acquisition that we're all hoping for.

Thank you very much for sharing your thought. Tron keeps repeating this statement over and over. This was tweeted 48 mins ago as I'm writing this comment.

"I'm going to move into your house, but rest assured, I can negotiate a path where it's mutually beneficial, but I'm going to replace the tapestry, change the paint in this room, oh an that carpet HAS to go."

Anyone else getting that vibe about TRON "moving in" to take over Steem?

Thanks for this clarification of how things has gone so far, we hope for mutual agreement & better collaboration with tron, because steem is a great community which is in our hearts. Thanks for this post, and we will follow all matters in this partners & act accordingly.

Good Lord, for real? Justin bought Steemit? Holy moly... No wonder people are saying STEEM will become a TRON token. Ah, is this where we say beggars can't be choosers? 🤔

Regardless of the outcome, I stand with the community.

Take a deep breath and think for a minute *(hour) before you write it down

If the community is small, shrinking, not capable of growing, not producing content good enough - regardless of the outcome you will stand with the community?!

You will not actually change something and create a wider user base, a better product, a more appealing platform?

If the new boss has 1 gram of brain all of you will be on the street next month

You said you did not have a chance to interface with the Tron Team directly.
Is there a person responsible for strategy and communication on the Tron Team that you know of? Did you have any contact with Tron representatives yet? (except Justin of course)

Thank you for being open about this. I do hope that there is a lot more transparent communication with what your plans are, going forward.

Will you do something about the downvote bot abuse, currently affecting this post?

The word that soothes me and other community members in Indonesia (I'm sure also throughout the world) is the implementation of collaborative and cooperative. But another important word to be real is to grow and develop together.

Thank so much for this calming statement @andrarachy.

@andrarchy

While I fail to see where Steemit has any kind of a sustainable business plan, I am quite certain that nothing will result in the total demise of the Steemit forum platform, more so than will some of Steemit's own Witnesses and long-time members. Witnesses like @themarkymark, his sidekick @buildawhale, and long-time members like @steemcleaners @roomservice @bullionstackers
@freebornange @quarantine @bookguy @mack-bot @the-reef @block-power @blockcreate @steemcleaner and others, have done far more to alienate and drive away Steemit members than has anything else.

These witnesses and members are truly the scum of the earth. They don't give a damn about Steemit beyond having the ability to abuse their power to manipulate the system to their own personal advantage, by making sure that the vast majority of Steemit members get nothing for their curator efforts, while at the same time filling their own corrupt and greedy pockets.

Now you are indeed at a crossroads here! So which side of the tracks are you on? Either you want Steemit to survive and will do all in your power to get rid of these assholes like @themarkymark, @buildawhale and those others mentioned above, or you will continue to allow their extremely abusive behavior, and see the total and absolute collapse of Steemit. The choice is yours to make. Either @themarkymark and his band of criminals go, or Steemit goes! Which is it? There are really no other options!

Do they seem eager to get to know us and work together? Or are they just putting on a face? I think that's what we want to know. If it's the former, then I'm excited, but I suppose I won't be convinced easily.

@andrarchy , thanks for this great outspoken mind about the current ups and downs on Steemit discussion. I truly believe it will help and go a very long way since you came out to voice out more clearly.

Great to hear these strong statements from you. Would love to see more resources flow into further development if this ecosystem. Ecosystems, not companies are the economic future of an interconnected digitised world. That’s where future value - social and financial - will be captured.

You could easily improve the value of TRON just by becoming a @justinsunsteemit Head (or Director) of Communications too... =) eaassssilyyyy!

But like you said, you need time now for both teams to sit together and talk.

After looking at more information on the STEEM blockchain, I now can possibly explain some of the STEEM purchases from 12 January and following ones =) Some info leaked on that day or before. Anyway, the important now is to follow up with it.

Let's see what "resources" and more capital can do.

Tron Foundation & Steemit have joined? is this a good thing? will it be easy to transfer from bank account into Tron & Steem? who is Tron? what happens if Google does a hostile takeover of Tron? any thoughts?

Everything is getting clearer... I think @justinsuntron just wanted to rain a little on VOICE's parade (which is no bad thing). Clearly the guy knows a thing or two about generating media coverage.

Behind the scenes I can't see him taking any steps to destroy Steem and Steemit, he's now got a strongly aligned financial interest in success and he's clearly much more involved than either Dan or Ned had become.

How does the migration work? does steem get swapped for a token?

You will see that it will be a good thing to become part of the greater TRON family. I see a huge opportunity of cooperation and now Steemit is exposed to one of the most active blockchain communities out there.

Isn't the focus of blockchain decentralization? Why are takeovers and contorted algorithms even news in this landscape?

Will there be a community like steemit that is not privy to the tendency of the greed of humans in the future?

I enjoy Steemit and the neutral platform and ideals it represents. I'm just confused as to why there are so many power struggles in a technology that is innately designed to be decentralized.

How can we remove the ability for abuse? What algorithm will stop abuse, even by magnates and whales.
