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.

Vitalik tweets in support of Steem/Hive Community again.
<center>![vitalik.png](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/geekgirl/KMmZe9vK-vitalik.png)</center>

As we are preparing to migrate to our new home - Hive, crypto world is watching. It was nice to see this morning [Vitalik's tweet](https://twitter.com/VitalikButerin/status/1240605327122464768) in support of Steem/Hive community. If you remember he was the one who tweeted about Justin Sun's hostile take over first and helped us get more attention to our situation.

In less than 24 hours Hive chain will go live, and the new future for decentralization begins.

Fun fact about this struggle for decentralization is that we have seen so many twos (2) and zeros (0). 

1. Soft Fork to protect decentralization was on 02.22.2020 and named 0.22.2. 

2. Justin Sun launched sock puppet witnesses and hostile attack on the network on 03.02.2020. 

3. Now, finally Hive will launch tomorrow on 03.20.2020. 

Looking forward to seeing you all on the Hive side.

Hive On!

It has been great to see so many in the crypto community come out. Will be even more interesting to see which of them acquire some Hive or even start using it.

Yup! But crypto doesn’t always follow logic. Sure will be interesting to watch and participate.

Excited for the future. This whole thing has rejuvenated the energy a lot of old steemit users used to have. 

I think the community is back.

What a crazy world @geekgirl, both "out there" and "in here" my friend.  One more day and our ~~Steem~~ Hive blockchain begins a new chapter ...

You likely already are aware, but just in case ...Thought you might find this of interest, given how much of your effort you so faithfully put in to helping them:

<p><center><img src="https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/roleerob/SyVBDOgM-image.png"></center></p>

Captured a short time ago.  Guess they are not moving?

Yea, I was disappointed to see they chose to support hostile takeover. Team behind Steemhunt are brilliant folks. But even best of us make mistakes.
