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.

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

We'll have to wait and see but I'd personally like to see a detailed timeline/roadmap of proposed development... Could be wishful thinking. I've seen many blockchain projects with roadmaps that have had the first hurdle missed which doesn't set a good precedent!

remember what he said: steemit is not qualified to be reported directly from him. He's not even in charge of all this stuff. lol
