Time to Sunset Steem

I wrote this a week ago:

We have years of evidence of what Justin Sun intends to do and does. He lies to, he cheats, he obfuscates and he exploits others to make himself richer. He is a master of the crypto shell game and a bad actor.

Life is too short to waste a second working with or investing into people you can identify as bad actors or untrustworthy. This should be a lesson we have all learned repeatedly over the years. It never ends well.

Well...I always said I would be here until the end, that I am in it for the long haul. The haul was long and now it's over. This is the end of Steem as we have known it.

I will not help a bad actor build a community, I will not help a bad actor make money, I will not help or be party to a bad actor exploiting a community that I care about, I will not abide while a bad actor treats an attempt at decentralization like he's a banana republic dictator and we are his portable assets.

I will not help bad actor exchanges who violate their users' rights without consent. I am powering down, pulling in all my leases and moving my Steem to Bittrex. I will never use Binance or Huobi again and I recommend everyone reading this stay far away from those bad actors too.

You can buy coins, you can prop up phony witnesses with made up names (naming one after "corona" was particularly disgusting) like this is some insane North Korean dictatorship, you can buy a URL and a front end, but you can't buy the only thing that gives a blockchain network its value: people, community, and users. And once you rape a community's trust, don't ever expect to ever have it again.

If Steem is reborn and Sun's coins are forked out, I'll be here for it. But right now, I am turning off the lights.

First, I didn't agree with the softfork and I certainly don't agree with JS's counter move, which undermined every single one of us.

I agree, we must stick to our ideals and Justin's ethic are certainly in question. I can't justify working with him either.

I believe we need to fork with some changes. Those are; get rid of the witness hierarchy, increase the node count to infinite and take the staked weight out of governance voting to truly decentralize the fork. Then this will not happen in the future.

All nodes should be equal. Nodes, not witnesses.

Just started powering down myself. What a shitty day so far.

Totally agree with you and powering down, it’s against my views. Transfer all left coins to bittrex and kraken. Hope steem community could migrate to better decentralised place. Without community steemit is empty place.

Well...I always said I would be here until the end, that I am in it for the long haul. The haul was long and now it's over. This is the end of Steem as we have known it.

As sad as this is, I'm glad to be leaving alongside you. I'm happy to know that our core values and passion of crypto and creativity of others is what allowed us to discover each other and cross paths.

If Steem is reborn and Sun's coins are forked out, I'll be here for it. But right now, I am turning off the lights.

You'll know where to find me, too. :^)

Thanks for all the help, bud. You did a lot for me, and because of you and this place I found myself.

so sad !! I’m hoping Steem's beautiful future, after reading this article, I felt depressed and sad. 😢
You are always a reliable person anyway!!!!!😊
