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.

Great to hear from you and i love the idea of people knowing that every app and blog is powered by STEEM. I think that it's a powerful message and one worth broadcasting to the world. Obviously there has been issues over the past few years and it will take time to get things right.

It seems that the group has really turned things around in the past 6 months which is great and there is a new drive and more transparency to the people watching. While the back end is vital to the future of the platform I do feel that the front end has been left behind from the start.

What I would love to hear about soon are the plans to onboard people instantly. Have a smooth and simple interface for people to use the different aspects of the chain and have a great users experience from start to finish. In my opinion we have lost a lot of traction from these issues which are vital to growth, price and investment. Unfortunately we will never have the next Instagram until people can create an account instantly and find the right app for them.

I would love to see steem.com as a gateway to all of the apps and games on the chain with live feeds and interesting posts from the different tribes. As a technology company driving cutting edge blockchain tech it does seem a bit of a contradiction that the two main sites for the company are a long way behind the use cases.

Hopefully after the hardfork we can see some information about getting ready for mass adoption and creating a simple and enticing place to join the apps or create your own. Things are looking up and i'm glad to be here as they do. I just wan't to see the basics right for that to happen.

Thanks - this is a great and well thought out comment. Smoother onboarding is certainly something on our minds and will get the attention it deserves in time. One step at a time, right now our focus is on a smooth rollout of HF21, Communities, and Smart Media Tokens - but don’t worry, onboarding will certainly not be forgotten.
