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.

Coverage:
- Decrypt.io: Steem network to seize $5 million from its own users
- SteemPeak.com: Official Announcement by @softfork22888
- GitHub.com: view steemd HF23 changes

What you can do:
- Send exchanges a notice of the pending class action lawsuit.
- Switch to HIVE, the community-led fork. Visit Hive.blog and Hiveblocks.com.

Steem still has a chance if the management put some thoughts in it and start doing the right thing. But things are not promising.

It will take time for the dust to settle, I'm still going to post on both platforms for max 3 months and compare interaction on both but I hope to be able to get some of the money back I spent on buying STEEM (I'm sure we all would)!

Who knows really, it's been less than a week since it all happened and the noise has quietened down somewhat.

Would like to see less "holier than thou" posts from Hive users though and just move on/focus on the road ahead

That's been typical since I joined, the management / owners have consistently made the wrong choices (the profitable choices, but damaging long term).
