This is by the longest time steemit has been down as far as I know.
The hardfork 20 that caused steemit to be down for a longtime was just as long as a day, but this one took up to two days. Wow!!!!
But though I was not panicked because I knew that the steemit teem will get it solved.
I don't know much about cryptocurrency, the blockchain, but I sense that this system needs a lot of technicalities to run it well, so I have learnt to be patient with them when problems like this happen.
But steemit seems to be back now. So welcome back steemit.
