1. Bidbots must change after Hardfork 21
Top 20 witness, Steem-Engine co-founder and co-owner of steembottracker @aggroed has put out a call to bidbot owners to tighten up their standards for what they will vote on.
While some bidbots already have standards and guidelines in place for what posts they will accept, others do not. Those 'bad actors' must stop bidbotting poor quality 'shitposts' as this is damaging the blockchain.
The era of supporting literally anything and everything stops on Tuesday.
If it doesn't stop I plan to run an aggressive campaign against your business, against your delegators, and will try to get Steem delegated to your project moved to a more responsible one.
Fellow top witness and co-owner of steembottracker @yabapmatt has joined the call for bidbots to clean up their act...
after HF21, @aggroed and I will be expecting all of the vote selling services listed on the Steem Bot Tracker website to use both their upvote and downvote power responsibly and in a way that furthers the goals of the hard fork changes and the #newsteem movement.
2. Vote to get STEEM on the ATAIX exchange
