Steem is one tough blockchain that will not die that easily. One day of down time is nothing, and actually considering how fast such a major bug got fixed proves that we have some excellent coders working on the code. Replaying the past transactions is what took the most time, and well when all is said and done it is hard to roll something out completely bug free.
Every software project out there always had bugs to deal with, every game ever made when it started was a buggy mess that got fixed, patched and updated over time. That is why I'm invested in Steem blockchain, it is a software project, it will evolve over time, all the bugs from the past will be fixed and long forgotten in the future.
But there is also a concern how many aps got completely paralyzed after one day of downtime, many apps and games had their D day, nothing works when Steem stops working. This is why big hard forks roll out only 2 times per year, or only once. They can create mayhem, completely change the economy like most hard forks in the past did.
This proves again and again that code after so many retries and testing will always have bug issues. The thing is when it comes to blockchains that code needs to be rock solid before it launches, when money is involved, when so many people depend on Steem blockchain working people need to step up and improve their game.
Just imagine if this could happen to Bitcoin, all hell would break loose. The price would drop like crazy when all news outlets would start preaching about Bitcoin doom, people would sell and sell.
We got lucky that this event didn't do absolutely nothing to Steem price, one of the perks of being lower on coin market cap list I guess. I hope this was it when it comes to HF21/22 bugs. Let's chain those blocks bug free finally and get to smooth sailing from now on.
