The raw notes from justin-ned AMA

2년 전

Just a heads up that this is rough notes of everything they talked about. As fast as i could I wrote or closely paraphrased what they said.

I did not write my own opinion in this post.
At least i tried hard to make it not my opinion... just notes
Also plenty of spelling mistakes as i went fast

Called it a Collaboration
Partnered with tron
Ned sold all his shares in the company
Justin made $150 steem and a lot of comments (justin wasn't impressed)
Ned was a big fan of reddit and dan was a blockchain engineer

Thank you, @jarvie. I will only say this once and then move on. I just wish Steemians had shown up with an open mind and heart. Instead we showed up as a petulant, angry mob. Sigh.

Thanks for the blow by blow.

I watched it and was impressed by how they managed to ignore so many questions.

No plans for now to mess with Witnesses. No plans for now for a token swap. Hmmmm...

Justin Tron doesn’t have a power cord?


To be fair, I wouldn’t expect a flat out promise that they’ll never do x, y, or z. Perhaps the plan was initially for an immediate token swap and we already squelched it with discussion yesterday.

I’m encouraged by what I just read above. At the very least there’s more time to grow and acquire stake. The longer Steemit Inc. (Tron) plays by the existing rules they’d always adhered to, the more they’re diluted and power moves to the community.

I’m at work, but I’ll be looking to watch everything later and perhaps my feelings will change with more nuance.

That sounds plausible. Sun’s Medium post made it sound like a done deal. But so much of the post was confusing. Poorly translated from Chinese?

So is this more of a partnership to explore use of BOTH steem and tron integration or is it just a migration effort to tron?

No question answered IMHO. Marketing talk, no details. They haven't addressed any tough questions asked by the community. Some people will be sold, some must be preparing a hard fork.

Here are my notes from what I've seen: justinsun-ama-first-impression

Thanks, very handy!

Thanks for posting. As expected...

Thanks so much for the recap!!!
Must have been hard to hold back your opinion ;)

I caught parts of it and definitely had lots of opinions :D

"Computer battery running out" was one of my favorites XD


Hi @connecteconomy

Just a moment ago I decided to check out your profile and see if you published any articles lately - only to realize that you didn't publish anything in a long while.
Hope you are well and didn't give up on steemit yet.

Cheers, Piotr


Nothing to do with Steemit, just had less time over the past few months :)

Great notes Jarvie .... Battery running out 😅😅😅
