People have concerns regarding Steem-ua, I get it, but...
[![Thumbnail](https://images.dlive.io/db6ed9ea-b055-11e8-ba94-0242ac110002)](https://dlive.io/video/meno/20190387-b054-11e8-9c9f-0242ac110003)

I collected some thoughts on this subject and decided to voice them in the form of a vlog. I've been doing these normally on dtube, for just to change it up, I decided to do this one on dlive.

Of course the conversation needs to continue, I'm not trying to shut it down in the least, I'm simply trying to show the cap half full, because it might even more more than half after all.

Much love as always

MenO

I'm not worried about selling followers, because one of the bases of UA is that the more follows you have the less power it gives each of them. So someone with a high UA and not very many follows could sell a few follows and make a little, but returns would diminish quickly.

Case in point: almost immediately after I first looked at my score, Ausbitbank followed me - and my score went down a little. He's #7 in UA, so he has a lot to give out, but he also follows almost 3200 people, so it's very heavily diluted.

Hi @meno. I had the same worry with a comment this morning. Change has to happen and it will be good change fingers crossed. I would have expected a witness to be up there with a high ranking as that makes perfect sense to me. In 3 to 6 months I am positive we will look back and appreciate what steem-ua have come up with.

I'm skeptical.  But I'm optimistic too.  I'm fine letting @scipio figure out whatever he needs to figure out.  If he still needs to replace 50% of the code, that just means he's half way done.  :)

I'm curious about the score being something that can be independently verified from the blockchain.  I haven't investigated if that's a goal or not.  I can see either side.  A secret calculation has at least one advantage: harder to game.

Even if the formula is mostly open, but has certain secret coefficients, that'd be OK by me.

But a fully published standard also has an advantage.  If it can be fully modeled independently, and if it turns out it can be gamed, it might be possible to find those issues before there's significant damage.

Some people think that centralization has no place in blockchain technology.  And a secret calculation (even if it's just one component) would be a form of centralization.  But that's not really a valid objection.  Centralization is not automatically bad.  Likewise, decentralization is not automatically good.

But what protects users of steem-ua from a centralized calculation that gives users an unfair advantage like back-room favors?  Competition.  If steem-ua itself becomes a bad actor, a better solution *will* be waiting in the wings.

All this to say, I'm not that worried about the particulars of steem-ua implantation.  My skepticism is tempered with a lot of patience because I know I can pull the plug of my support any time I want.

brilliantly said @inertia - I'm with you 100% on this...   I rather see people trying to improve the system, that everyone just complaining about how it doesnt work and calling for steem to drop to 0
