An Update...


I feel I owe it to the community to inform you all that earlier this afternoon I tendered my resignation to Steemit. I am currently exhausted and want to take some time to rest before I say anything further.

Take your time. This must have been really rough. For now, just know that there are so many of us that are incredibly grateful for what you have built for us to enjoy the past few years, and many of us are also excited of the opportunity to build whatever is yet to come.

Very sad to hear you quit, I don't have enough words to praise your awesome contributions for STEEM. On the other hand, I understand the shitstorm that Ned unleashed on us maybe hard for you to cope with (if that's one of the other reasons for resigning). Rest well and hope to see you back on your feet and strong.

03.03.2020 00:04

Get some rest. With your skills, you'll be working too hard too soon. I have reason to believe your expertise will be needed shortly for a new project.

Thanks!

I respect you even more now man.

You were the developer carrying the chain the past little while. An Ally to the non-commie STEEM chain and you're a hell of a dude.

Whatever your next move is, may you find luck and prosperity in it.

I was hoping to see this from you and your peers. My condolences to seeing much of your project wielded in a way that I imagine is largely the antithesis to what you desired.

No wonder...
Relevant people starting to leave is not a good sign. I hope you can still be involved somehow in whatever will emerge of this mess. Your skills and insights are highly appreciated.

You're far too good for Steem, as it is now. Thank you for the work you put into it before Ned sold it off to the worst buyer he could find for the lowest price.

I genuinely wish you the best. Sounded like Dan Larimer wanted to hire you, if you're interested in another shit show!

Can't they just throw SPS out of the box considering witnesses can change the core code of blockchain?

Feeling depressed on the hostile takeover news.

03.03.2020 03:22

Or Justin could just vote the return proposal to the top. SPS is held hostage same as the witness spots...

If they want to they could have voted on their own "proposals"

03.03.2020 08:30

@sankysanket18 : Waiting to see how the #STEEM community as a whole reacts to this development...

Most likely with a hard-fork, creating 2 chains (let's call them SteemItTron & SteemClassic).

One of them will have the dApps, the community(ies), the best front ends, and hopefully the 4 StInc folks who've resigned so far.

The other one will have Justin Sun and the "steemit.com" URL.

03.03.2020 21:38

Exactly my concern... Make no mistake, steemit.com is now a centralized platform.

03.03.2020 08:28

I'm ready to vote anytime!

Is it important to write it here? Most Steemians never heard of you. I doubt they will cry their eyes of. I assume you all leave and start something else together with the witnesses. It must feel good to destroy someone. πŸ‘

@vandeberg. Thank you for all you have done for Steem, and for your honourable decision to resign from Steemit Inc.

Please consider helping to develop the Matrix-8 Platform. This is a multi-level governance real time democrity, which could not only help Steem governance enormously, but also help to "save the world". More info here: https://steempeak.com/c/hive-153630/created
