After the success of the last discussion post, and current STEEM events, it is probably timely to open up a new talking point now.
What I'd like to know is both how ordinary users and the @reggaesteem team view this development. A pretty much carbon copy of the STEEM chain, with a new name, and excluding the Steemit Inc presence and stake. Being forked and maintained by a group of community developers.
What do I think?
I am 100% in favor of this fork. I intend to move over to it and not look back. The new chain is to be called HIVE, and I can live with that. I think STEEM is now tainted goods, Justin has antagonized too much of the community for it to carry on as is. I'm hopeful that Steem-Engine and the Tribes will move (as these have been a big focus of my efforts for a while now). I don't see a way forward on STEEM as we know it, but would love to hear more official announcements to validate (or otherwise) my thoughts as to how this will play out.
Thanks everyone for the participation on the first post, I can't wait to see everyone's thoughts on these new developments.
