Warning: Steem witnesses executed a hard fork on 2020-05-20, seizing 23.6M STEEM from 65 accounts. The funds were transferred to an account named @community321, the ownership (and intentions) of which have not been revealed. The witnesses claim to have been targeting accounts which defended against a hostile takeover in early March, but at least 2 accounts on the list have been inactive for over 4 years.

What you can do:

CHINA taking over Steem and the World???

What's up with all these Chinese blog posts on Steemit? When I open steemit.com, it is predominantly filled with Chinese letters. I assume this has something to do with the last hard fork, right? I thought this is 'murica!
