Supporting HardFork 21

As of now, my main node is running 0.21.0, which means it is fully prepared for the upcoming HardFork 21. It may not appear as such in some block explorers, until I sign a new block with this node, which may take up to two hours.

I will keep the backup node on 0.20.10 just in case something wrong pops up (as it was the case before).

Steem on!

I know the feeling. That's why I created, an easy to use and accurate tool for calculating your Steemit rewards

It's free to use, but if you think this is a useful addition, I'd appreciate your witness vote.

Thank you!

A question about the upcoming HF21.
Post which were posted before the HF will they still get the 75/25 split or will they be paid out with the 50/50 split?

And what is the main reason for you to support the HF21?

14.08.2019 10:45

I didn't look at the code, but from what I know, votes cast before the HF will behave 75/25, while votes cast after that will fall under the 50/50 rule. But I might be wrong.

I support this hardfork in anticipation of SMT, which is the single most important feature of the Steem blockchain at this moment in time. I've been waiting for more than a year for this.

Thanks for the explanation why you support the HF. I guess more witnesses should be open about this!

Good to be prudent with a backup node 😀

So, HF21 is a fact now?

I have mixed feelings with SMTs. Won't there be a competition between them and Steem-Engine tokens?

Steem-Engine appeared precisely because SMT were delayed. I don't see any problem with it other than it is a side-chain, thus not enforced by the same consensus as the Steem blockchain.

Hey, @dragosroua.

Just reading through the comments and your reply to fullcoverbetting.

When you say in anticipation of SMTs, what do you mean? There's the EIP, SPS, shortening of the upvote window, and maybe some other miscellaneous things I can't think of off the top of my head going into HF21. Is there code that supports SMTs going down too that isn't already there?

Or are you talking about full blown SMTs? From what I've been reading, they're not ready to go in this hardfork. So, I guess I'm not sure what you're meaning, since I didn't think anything in this hardfork would be necessary for SMTs. I fully suspect I'm missing something, though. :)

Maybe I wasn't too clear. I am expecting SMTs on this platform as the single most important feature of it. If we have to go through another hardfork just to be in the position to start implementing this, then I'm in favor of it. SMTs are not going to be implemented until September 20 (which is a tentative date, so it may be pushed forward as well).

I've also read through all the other new things this hardfork brings in and I'm not swinging in any way. There are changes that have been discussed and assessed in many places and I'm not rejecting any of them. You could say I'm neutral towards this hardfork, as long as it frees coding human power and paves the way towards SMTs.

14.08.2019 14:43

Ah. Okay. I agree. We've had enough distractions away from SMTs (some of them for the better in the long run, others, not so much). It's time to deliver, I think.

Two thumbs up! That's why you are always at my witness list since day #1
