What Does Decentralization Mean To Me? Initiative.

Since the recent events with the #STEEMHostileTakeOver - I think it's important we understand the Steem communities' thoughts on Blockchain & Decentralization & if/why it's important to you.

What do you think are the fundamental building blocks of blockchain?

What does decentralization mean to you, is it important, why?

What are your thoughts on blockchain and decentralization? - Please write a whole post sharing your thoughts; there are no right or wrong answers.

10 posts (shared on Twitter or other social media) will be rewarded with 100% upvotes. Even if your post isn't in the top 10, upvotes will be given in lesser amounts to active participants.


  • Share your Steem post to Twitter. Comment below with both your Twitter & Steem post link.
  • Use the tag #decentralizesteem in your Steem post & use the hashtag #STEEMHostileTakeover in your tweet.
  • The title of your Steem post should be "What Does Decentralization Mean To Me" & the main Steem tag or one of the first 5 tags should be #decentralizesteem
  • @threespeak will be giving out upvotes for #threespeak videos based on this initiative!
    Don't forget to use the tag POSH for extra posh upvotes.

Personal Note. While the future is uncertain, the way we approach it is in our hands. There is no perfect defense in life, therefore it's not about how well your current defense is, but how strongly you can resist. How strongly you can stand strong, adapt, grow and overcome unfavorable conditions. This is STEEM's greatest test yet.

I don't gonna make a post.

Great initiative!

This is nice. Will make my entry right away
Decentralisation means freedom to me

13.03.2020 22:12

What does decentralization mean to you, is it important, why?

Yes it is important and we must change the voting rules for Witnesses to achieve decentralization.

Without decentralization we get what we have had up until now. A group of witnesses who change the rules to suit and enrich the very people who vote them in. In turn disadvantaging the vast bulk of users.

We need to move away from Stake Based Witness Voting.

13.03.2020 22:31

Lets start with the basic foundations of what we're all aiming for and if most of us are even on the same page. Maybe @justinsunsteemit is for example on a totally different page or many of the witnesses that you're talking about then maybe there's a bridge or maybe they just could hang out in their own chain where decentralization means something completely different to them.

13.03.2020 23:23

Yes i dare say that Sun has a completely different page than many. I saw his suggestion of changing the rules to trons example but we would end up in the exact same situation that we have from the beginning.

It would be great if we could run two different experiments running parallel and get to play a role in both parts. What do you think? run one part as being completely decentralized 1 Person gets to vote 20 or thirty witnesses and Stake based variant they claim will work.

13.03.2020 23:35

@steempeak will support this initiative with some upvotes as well because we believe this is an important subject.

13.03.2020 23:20

Thanks for this, @steempeak!

14.03.2020 16:53

Awesome. Thanks @steempeak.

14.03.2020 22:29

Great work @steempeak!

15.03.2020 05:42

Awesome article! There is an epic hype about overcoming unfavorable conditions.
What's the point of this hype as long as people are so fearful that they ignore our challenge?
Are you tough enough to accept our challenge or is our challenge too big for you?

question 2.png

What challenge?
Deep inside you have always known what it is. What you know you can’t explain. You feel it.
You've felt it your entire life that there is something wrong with our world. You don’t know what it is and it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad… The feeling - artistic edition:

Our challenge is everywhere, it is all around us:

In case:

Warning: The topic of my Discord server is dangerous, so it's not for everybody.
I'm sure my ideas are not the best ones and that's the whole point:
Do you know fearless people?

  • The more fearless people (who are solution oriented) cooperate,
  • The more chances we might have of creating solutions that are better than our individual solutions. It's pretty obvious isn't it?

How can we be winners as long as we obey to our challenge?
When you don't stand up for something, you're nothing.
We don't have time to clown around. Do you want to make a deal? How about this:

  • We can be winners or
  • We can be losers, right here right now.

Time's up. What's gonna be my friend?

15.03.2020 13:35

Thank's for your support my friends... regards from Venezuela

Still waiting for the announcement...

13.03.2020 23:39

It's the nuclear option. I don't feel quite ready to press that button. I will if I feel they are close to killing Steem.

14.03.2020 00:14

Who is they?

14.03.2020 09:45

Hmmmm i the nuclear you buy steemit? ;D

14.03.2020 10:17

I'm pretty sure Justin won't want to sell Steemit, since he'll be getting a lot less than what he paid for it...

14.03.2020 11:09

I suggest you all that ask for Justin sun what does decentralised systems means for him ?? And tag him

Mr Dan. This is a very good insight into what the Community really is to Us. We are so glad we have people like you here on Steem. Those who seek freedom for others as well. This great Initiative will bring more people into freedom doors for decentralization. Thank you sir for this great Positive Initiative growth for your this Community.

there are no right or wrong answers.

Perhaps I can prove this statement false:

  • Dencentralisation = 0
  • Decentralisation = Tron
  • Decentralisation = Justin Sun's way or the Highway

I hope I changed your mind that there are most certainly wrong answers

Anyway really neat topic and I will write on this soon. I studied participatory democratic and sustainable development a little while in school and although not the same as decentralised governance, there are some lessons to be learned or applied. Also there are no wrong answers =P

Sounds great & powerful initiative Dan. With steemhostiletakeover, we have many stories to tell. Thanks for this offer.

14.03.2020 04:32

Well, I went ahead and gave it a shot. I wanted to say a lot more but it was already pretty long. I hope a few check it out. https://steempeak.com/decentralizesteem/@stever82/what-does-decentralization-mean-to-me

14.03.2020 05:21

Ok! Now this is an important conversation for the Steem Community to think about and discuss.

I weighed in with a post about the subject of decentralization:

14.03.2020 06:18

This is quite interesting as wrote about decentralization and system design around the same time as this post :-) here it is : https://steempeak.com/hive-175254/@bobinson/decentralisation-and-system-design

Nice initiative! It's taken me a while to realize it but, to me, DECENTRALIZATION IS EVERYTHING.

Here's my contribution. On SteemPeak and on Twitter.

Decentralization is an opportunity to make things right, not worse.

Great I begin writing a post in the name of @greendeliverence. You know that binance unfroze 12 million tron? I think binance is dumping it soon. Or swapping it to steem?

14.03.2020 08:24

it's a wonderful topic that we must talk about because some invaders think of ordering us what to do.

14.03.2020 11:06

Wow! Love this initiative! Great idea!

I'll try to do my part but I'm still trying to talk sense to friends and family about the virus.

So many with serious, preexisting conditions and therefor in high risk groups with a huge risk appetite.

Sorry for dropping this in here Dan but I had to get it off of my chest and I wanted to hear what you and other steemians think. Gotta make a post about this.

Is this just me or are you guys also concerned for those who are still in denial what is going on?


PS: Please stay safe everybody!

Cheers man! Thanks for the thought-provoking prompt.

I am new here.
I would love to share my thoughts and contribute to this community.
I'm having trouble reconciling how we can have a discussion about decentralisation of the Steem blockchain that requires participants have a Twitter account? That seems tragically ironic while extremely relevant to the whole point of the conversation

Decentralised blockchain is a world changing opportunity for everyone to take control of their individual value.
I believe this is a watershed moment for humanity, and as such, it is imperative that this ideal be the driving motivation for our efforts.
If we compromise that principle we will only be enslaving ourselves exponentially by forgoing the ultimate opportunity to establish true freedom for all.

As a person who is 17, I can definitely see how decentralization would be a huge step to a better future. I'm hopeful to see some mass adoption soon.
