Steem's consensus has been attacked. It's time to vote for our independence

4개월 전

I hope most of you have already seen some posts about this, and already taken action. In case anybody who follows me hasn't done so yet, I ask you to vote for Steem witness accounts that are actually people, and not a gang of attacker accounts.

The attacker has stated his intention to remove a key security component from the blockchain: changing power down time from 13 weeks to just 3 days. Not only is this an unacceptable security risk, it is a unilateral decision made by someone who clearly does not act in the interests of Steem or its community.

These are witnesses that have been part of the community for a long time:

steempress
drakos
blocktrades

gtg

steempeak
ocd-witness
emrebelyer
abit
steempeak

emrebeyler
curie
stoodkev
netuoso
liondani

Thanks to @roadscape, the attack witnesses are highlighted in yellow on steemd.com's witness page: https://steemd.com/witnesses

It's very important to vote real, community witnesses back into consensus (the top 20) to mitigate this attack. This is an existential threat to Steem and must be taken seriously. Please use your witness votes to declare independence from the fool who thinks he can buy us. Alternatively, you can proxy your witness voting Steem stake to me. You may see who I vote for at https://steemd.com/@pfunk on the bottom of the left column.

Witness update:

I briefly lost the faith when all three exchanges were voting on behalf of the attacker, which allowed the attacker to pile on with the stake in @steem and @steemit. I did not restart my witness node with 0.22.1 code like many others. The version 0.22.4444 protest did not seem much of a protest to me if it was backup witnesses signing blocks on a chain controlled by the attacker.

However, with the community pulling together and CZ of Binance doing the right thing, there is hope. Bringing back a witness server almost from scratch takes a while and it will be online within a day. Edit: My witness node is back online.

To STEEM or not to STEEM that's the question!

I changed my witness votes! Let's hope for the best

I see the zombie witnesses are continuing to pile up votes so this isn't over yet. We need to keep getting the word out so that community members use their votes.

I gave @theycallmedan my votes through proxy. I'm happy I did. I hadn't voted for witnesses before.

The Steem blockchain is currently being attacked by a central authority in order to take control of the witnesses. If you are not managing your witness votes, please consider setting @berniesanders as your witness voting proxy by clicking here to help restore the decentralization of Steem.

@kommienezuspadt called me and told me what was going on. I came back to power up everything I had and vote!

Cool... already switched my votes in support. ✊
Actually I’m here writing because i was sent 6 steem from you and memo said... this was meant for you.
Curious what that is all about?
6 steem might be worth a lot of money some day... so i wanna know who to thank🤣

It looks like @whatsup meant to set this post to pay out to you but she forgot the s and it paid out to my account @buttcoin. The STEEM I sent you was the SP portion. The liquid stuff was sent from @buttcoin. Hmm that sounds bad. :P

Did you downvote Steemit's posts because its owner converted it into a sockpuppets factory? OK, you deserve that badge!
