In mid-February 2020 Justin Sun acquired the shares in Steemit Inc and proceeded centralise the blockchain under his control, improperly using Steemit's founders stake (intended for development and decentralisation of the blockchain) and tricking exchanges into initially supporting his power grab.
After extensive efforts to resolve the dispute failed, the community revolted and formed a new, fully decentralised blockchain - Hive - without the pernicious influence of Justin Sun and his minions.
Because of Open Source licensing, Hive was legally able to duplicate all the code and content on Steem.
The vast majority of the community and decentralised applications and projects moved to Hive and Hive was listed on many cryptocurrency exchanges without having to pay the normal listing fees.
On 19 May 2020, a Steem hard fork (0.23) designed to steal the Steem from 65 accounts associated with creating Hive became public.
My position on this hard fork can be found here: https://peakd.com/hf23/@brianoflondon/letter-to-exchanges-do-not-run-steem-hard-fork-23-hf-0-23-0
This was the final straw for my involvement with Steem.
I will now post exclusively on Hive at https://peakd.com/@apshamilton/posts
All my old Steem content can also be found on Hive.
I have been watching with interest the voting for SPS Proposals and I think there are some bugs regarding proposal voting related to @gtg's Return Proposal.
I'm not super technical but something doesn't add up regarding the way the votes are being recorded.
It seems that the Return Proposal (#0) is included in the vote for every other proposal. See @jpbliberty's vote for its own proposal (#2). Vote for Proposal #2 also includes #0
[Edit: @gtg has clarified below that the first zero in every vote ID is an index number, not a proposal ID]
The votes don't seem to be registering properly for non return proposals. An account with 2M SP = 4000 MV voted for Proposals #2 & #9 yesterday but only added around 1000 MV or T or Trn to each. See screen shots from Steemworld.
- [Edit: @gtg has clarified below that delegations don't count in proposal voting.]
Vote for Proposal #2 also includes #0
Vote for Proposal #9 also includes #0
Proposals #2 & 9 should have over 4 GV but these 4000 MV votes only added 1 GV to each.
As soon as HF21 launched the Return Proposal had 15GV and since then it seems to have increased by the combined total of all other votes plus some.
I may be missing something but it seems to me that there are bugs.
