Steem (the blockchain) is not equal Steemit Inc (the company)


What will happen now?

After all that news that Tron bought Steemit Inc. many Steemians have different feelings and estimations.

made by @detlev and free to use anywhere without mention

Justin Sun @justinsunsteemit said so far:

Today, TRON joins forces with the Steem community & Steemit. We are so excited about this collaboration and value the voice of this thriving community.

By committing a meaningful percentage of the STEEM token, TRON now aligns the same interests with the Steem community, to bring the value to STEEM token, to keep the core value of decentralization, to grow a one-of-a-kind decentralized social media platform.

Steem community and Steemit team have been pioneering the decentralized social media initiative and now with this strategic partnership, together we have more resources, capital and bandwidth to make this goal achievable. The fact both TRON and STEEM went up today post the announcement only proves that the market and industry at large view this partnership as a mutually beneficial alliance. We will work closely with the Steemit team and Steem community on the details of how we will execute this collaboration step by step.

Please join us in this endeavor, follow me on Twitter @justinsuntron, and voice your opinions as we pursue this exciting journey!! Thank you!

Than there is the community

the people who use steem is IMHO the real big value and I guess there need to be a nice offering to follow this deal or other things will happen.

We all (Steemians) are what makes steem great!

As @lukestokes said in his post STEEM is still not Steemit, even if Tron buys Steemit.

Steem is much more as a company and you can't buy a community!

The community is the big value of steem. People like you, and your steem friend and the atmosphere at the steem meetups and the SteemFest.

Have a read to all the comments at the post from Luke

Sure, together we are stronger

BUT - how much can we Steemians, we content creators decide?

I have no idea yet!


BUT, I like to be asked and I won't like to be sold

Why not just forking Steem to a user owned (community owned chain)


This was more or less one of my thoughs and I saw other trying it in different ways, so it might be possible.

What happens to all the Steem-Engine tokens

Another good question goes to @aggroed and his team.

From his latest post he said:

Steemit is a private company and can be bought and sold at Ned's (and the boards) discretion. Steem is a public decentralized blockchain. If Tron wants to make a tronit after poaching steemit that's fine.

As announced it's a token swap for steemians to get some tron thing. I think it should be airdrop to steem users and either a tokenswap or airdrop for tron users.

As it's said now it appears to be a goal to swap out steem for a tron token, which rubs me as hostile where as an airdrop seems voluntary. We'll see how this develops.

Either way. Witnesses, apps, and others can continue running steem nodes if they don't voluntarily choose to follow Ned's sale to Tron.

Have a look at and the different forum and live talks to follow the news

Have a great day

I just saw the news and have my hesitations and excitements. I’m hoping this is not the downfall of steem.

I am really worried. I believe were going to wind up needing to fork. Justin Sun is only really interested in the userbase here to bolster tron. And he causes pumps and dumps with his careless tweets on tron all the time. We do not need that here in steemit.

steem users today will be wondering about this very hot news;
Is it true that Steemit moved to Tron (TRX) Blockchain?
Thank fir sharing My friend

I see that the community it acting already as nobody want to swap from a technical 1st. grade blockchain to something less powerful.


Let us hope transition is smooth without too much upheaval.

I - and many or most others - don‘t see a reason to switch to a less performing and less developed blockchain.

Only a few hours to AMA and then we can make our decision I think we shouldn’t rule out forking it and setting up a community chain with all our stakes and just remove stinc stake from the snapshot chain!

If the migration is not by choice and you’re forcing me to take Tron then that’s a hostile takeover and I’m not with that shit

  ·  작년

So, is it after the AMA more clear?


A little but yes I think that this guy is a business man and he was given funds to hit certain targets in terms of users and dapps and he wasn’t getting their with Tron and steem was within his price range to overall make the Tron foundation the manager of a larger more diversified portfolio making it attractive for the next round of funding I mean only Concensus and challenge the Tron foundation now in the Blockchain space

He can attract and accelerate more dapps this way

Steem also provides a foothold in the west which he really needs! I think he doesn’t fully understand steem and what he bought and has to trust the core team and support them with staff and resources!

I think if he wants a return from this investment it’s the only way to go

He can use his pull to add us to more exchanges and like he said get us in on Samsung making his ecosystem more attractive

I think we’re pretty safe and the more we succeed the more he has no choice but to maintain steem as it is

Sounds more positive for me
