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.

I'm glad to see some measurable movement in this direction! Since the beginning of this whole fiasco, I knew it would end in HF, and was getting a little worried that we wouldn't get rolling quick enough to collect on the focus & agreement we have as a chain right now, much more than ever before.
Yup, time to get the show on the road. After four years of waiting for *"someone"* to get the party started, people are finally seeing that *WE* need to be the ones who get the ball rolling.

This is excellent news. I'm wondering how the airdrop will work. I've got about 30% of my SP delegated right now. I'm sure they factor all this in but just want some clear direction. I'm ready to go!!!
Many thanks to those that have the resources to save our community. Let us all keep up our momentum. Some have left over the 2 and one-half years that I have been a member of STEEM and then there are those that have stayed and fight on.
This entire SNAFU has shown that STEEM is **not** all about the money, but about a community. G-D bless us everyone!
There will be no burning. You will receive equivalent stake on the new chain. Do as you wish with your steem/sbd, however, keep in mind they need to remain in your account at the time of the snapshot if you want credit on the new chain.
Understood... I had doubts about that. I'm interested in maintaining and growing my voting power, I hope it works out well for the community. Thank you for replying. I am giving resteem to all the publications you are doing as witnesses and community leaders to spread the word.
I also think there is a great lack of communication with the Spanish-speaking community. I would like to know if you give me your permission to publish your posts translated into Spanish from my account to inform this community.
### You have just been bro-fisted by the guys in the man cave and now have 1 more BRO. Enjoy!**

> With that being said, I won't be sticking around much longer
I don't blame you. This shit needs to end already. It's clear where this is heading, but we're just fucking around at this point. I'm already powering down my stake, mostly in the event that we see a pump as a result of BTC's halving, but I'm done with Steem while this CCP fuckhead shits all over the chain.
i really like the news. There are more information about it?
Which devs follow to the new chain?
What are the roadmap/ plan for the future?
What is with the coins exchanges frozen? Will ne there a way to get a airdop too if the tokens on exchanges?
Is already some discord channel for the new coin? :)
IS there a date for the snapshoot?
This break up was a long time coming, I think this crazy bunch of people will make the right choice offer the fork and let the people decide! I’m just glad we can move forward and also stick it to that arsehole!
The answer is yes we want to fuck you! Fuck you off our chain
I'm completely in. Staying tuned for further announcements!
*disclaimer—my self-upvoting shall not be misconstrued to be self-promoting without express written consent of Tronit, Inc. but rather an embracing of the new downbote-free vision of Steem in which spam rules supreme!*
Stay tuned with either bernie or blocktrades. Essentially steem is switching to a new site. All of your content will be transferred to the new site and once it is running you should use it instead of Steemit. It should be quite simple, just keep tuned for the updates until it launches :)
I'm on board with you here, after all it's just a ChainID.(Do users even care what ChainID they run as long as their data is saved and currency is worth $?) I asked the same question you are asking now to many Steemians the 4-5 past weeks and i believe they (majority) are past ready to hardfork to protect #freedomtechnology .
By deploying now, we teach the communists how decentralized technology works, and if Justin Sun continues to Sybil attack (semi-democratic) systems trying to cheapen our technology and immutability "features" , pushing a lot of fud on our consensus mechanic's abilities, he will pay the ultimate price of owning a network that no one uses and no one gives a fuck about anymore.
# The big decision
# Option 1
Keep everyone's data in the chain, only remove justin's / steemit's stake
# Option 2
Don't keep the social data, only airdrop steem to the users who hold steem today, start chain from scratch (without user data)
# Arguments for each side
# Swap Chainid without data
Not storing ALL Steem data will restructure the blockchain fairly and potentially keep it very decentralized because more nodes can be ran, more witnesses will be operating.
# Swap Chainid with data
Keeping the data would be nice , because so many creators trusted Steem data, it's a root/tie to potentially 500,000-1 million actual people. Immutable data can create a platform enabling time - period immortality if the system carries on with adoption and keeps up with maintenance into the future
Hive is the future of a new steem decentralized...!
I will be there to design if consensus witness and new project want it ♥
Dear friend i am ready to move. But i have a question...Should i continue to power down to sell the steem i have, or should i keep it for some reason? thanks for all youve already done and thanks in advance for everything that is to come.🤗
You should keep it right now. Any steem you have in your account, whether it is liquid steem, sp or sbd will be airdropped to the new chain, but only what is currently in your account. So for now it might be best to hold off selling if you want to have the same amount in the new chain.
>Just like @ned, @justinsunsteemit has no plan to honor the original intent of this ill-gained stake
Lest us not forget that almost every whale on Steemit today (including yourself), was given some of that ninjamine by being part of an exclusive group of early miners.
So, I assume you're giving back all of yours?
Okay, I was expecting an adult answer to a valid question. I guess your response speaks volumes. You consider your ninjamined stake to be different because... because well, it belongs to you. Lol.
You and the rest of the cabal are a bunch of hypocrites.
Flag people who disagree with you, fork from people not in your club.
Take care old chap, and don't forget to throw your fawning acolytes a few crumbs to keep them on side. Lolz
I posted this question to @blocktrades post as well, but I doubt its getting longer and longer, and I may not get an answer. So can you answer ?
So holding the steem for now is going to help us as well as the community ? The reason I am asking is that I was powering down, after all this started. But then I powered them up to support the witness voting. If the price of steem is going to dump, then will we not also loose there ? I understand the equivalent air drop of the new coin will help, but how retaining the old steem will balance that ? Because we bought them. And based on the read, I think, its not wise to buy more now ?
And to add to the above, may be we should power down now to have them in liquids so that we can sell and get something ?
If you plan to continue on the STEEM blockchain, no reason to not be powered up. If you plan to move to Hive, it probably makes sense to begin powering down.
You can look at my accounts to see what I'm doing, if that's any help.
Hope you can answer this because I'm a nobody but genuinely curious.
>No insta-mined staked to be dumped on markets
Are you talking about all the mined stake here? What about other people like
Yeah that guy, do you mean actual freedom or that we're bringing him along as well?
I used to really enjoy posting on here. I stopped because making the images for my posts just took too long. I was never in it for the Steem, but couldn't find the community I was looking for as the people here generally wanted someone to reinforce their daydreams of becoming rich, not someone who would burst their crypto bubble.
Good sign, but it becomes difficult to understand. For an average user, Steem's problems are more sentimental than technical aspects. I would support @blocktrades in any step I can take, but actually I would like a more explicit documentary to find out how they plan to solve.
> "The faster you can get rid of it, the more value you will get from gullible buyers who think they are getting low priced coins, not understanding that the coins they are buying will never get their value back, because all value will go away (more on this point shortly.) Time is not on your side in that garbage dump, because the more information people have, the more they will realize that it is not worth buying what they are selling. "
I just read this in the post attached to this post: https://steemit.com/steem/@blocktrades/why-i-won-t-be-compromising-with-justin-sun, I think that if the fall of Steem is irreversible, so the new token and the new platform should be promoted at once and we should place our trust in it. Of course, what little confidence we have ... Sometimes I feel that what I am publishing is going to be lost. It is difficult for me to think about leaving steemit, but if the order is to go somewhere else, I would like to know: Where to ?, so as not to waste another minute of time.
**PS. I would love for someone to answer my concern with absolute clarity.**
This is a grand step for the community!
However, it is not the end, thus why blockchain as the principle it represents must be represented by the community it supports on a day to day basis.
Layers of hierarchy exist within human nature and this is the crux of it. Here is one symbol of totalitarianism going down, what will be the next subtler symbol that sits on the next layer of hierarchy. Kindness and egalitarianism is the desired outcome but power corrupts regardless of how benevolent the next 'owner' or 'leader' is.
This is yet another beginning and yet another exciting step, however we must never let our guard down. As we move forward, lessons are learned through experience and this truth solidifies as action. It is not just a blockchain but the world that is governed by these principles. So we execute our kingdoms in a microcosm that represents our greater macrocosm.
True decentralization is a lofty and valorous dream! Good luck to us all!
#Hive5! Justin seems to think "cooperation" means "do what I say or else." You'd think a crypto mogul would know about forks,and you'd think he'd have done his due diligence by trying to understand the community he was trying to take over and rule. He might have noticed that attitude is unwelcome.
