What Does Decentralization Mean To Me? Initiative.


Since the recent events with the #STEEMHostileTakeOver - I think it's important we understand the Steem communities' thoughts on Blockchain & Decentralization & if/why it's important to you.

What do you think are the fundamental building blocks of blockchain?

What does decentralization mean to you, is it important, why?

What are your thoughts on blockchain and decentralization? - Please write a whole post sharing your thoughts; there are no right or wrong answers.

10 posts (shared on Twitter or other social media) will be rewarded with 100% upvotes. Even if your post isn't in the top 10, upvotes will be given in lesser amounts to active participants.


  • Share your Steem post to Twitter. Comment below with both your Twitter & Steem post link.
  • Use the tag #decentralizesteem in your Steem post & use the hashtag #STEEMHostileTakeover in your tweet.
  • The title of your Steem post should be "What Does Decentralization Mean To Me" & the main Steem tag or one of the first 5 tags should be #decentralizesteem
  • @threespeak will be giving out upvotes for #threespeak videos based on this initiative!
    Don't forget to use the tag POSH for extra posh upvotes.

Personal Note. While the future is uncertain, the way we approach it is in our hands. There is no perfect defense in life, therefore it's not about how well your current defense is, but how strongly you can resist. How strongly you can stand strong, adapt, grow and overcome unfavorable conditions. This is STEEM's greatest test yet.

Cheers man! Thanks for the thought-provoking prompt.

Ok! Now this is an important conversation for the Steem Community to think about and discuss.

I weighed in with a post about the subject of decentralization:


Thanks for your Upvote! <3

I've reduced myself to 5Min and did put it on 3Speak:

Nice initiative! It's taken me a while to realize it but, to me, DECENTRALIZATION IS EVERYTHING.

Here's my contribution. On SteemPeak and on Twitter.

It’s an great initiative and I loved writing to participate in this contest

it's a wonderful topic that we must talk about because some invaders think of ordering us what to do.

The community stand with you guys in every aspect.

Wow! Love this initiative! Great idea!

I'll try to do my part but I'm still trying to talk sense to friends and family about the virus.

So many with serious, preexisting conditions and therefor in high risk groups with a huge risk appetite.

Sorry for dropping this in here Dan but I had to get it off of my chest and I wanted to hear what you and other steemians think. Gotta make a post about this.

Is this just me or are you guys also concerned for those who are still in denial what is going on?


PS: Please stay safe everybody!

I suggest you all that ask for Justin sun what does decentralised systems means for him ?? And tag him

Great I begin writing a post in the name of @greendeliverence. You know that binance unfroze 12 million tron? I think binance is dumping it soon. Or swapping it to steem?

Two day before start this initiative i wrote this:

¿Por qué importa la descentralización en Steem? | Why does decentralization matter at Steem?

My tweet about

I hope to be taken into account this time, because in my previous attempt in another initiative, I did not come out favored...thanks for giving the fight in the #SteemHostileTakeOver

Hi Dan

Here's my 3speak post and Shared on twitter as well. Thanks

Steempeak- https://steempeak.com/hive-100421/@alokkumar121/zybkuqvq

Twitter- https://twitter.com/alok9811/status/1238918890995871746?s=19

That's an amazing initiative by you 👍

Dan! Thanks so much for the initiative. Ive been thinking a lot about this topic lately, since our faith in crypto has recently been put to the test.. I've written my post in a way that will appeal to people outside of our platform, so that I can publish on medium etc..

So here is my entry!




I guess ill just stick to trading, my writing is garbage lol

My entries

I really like your call to action initiatives, here is my humble contribution:

Hello @theycallmedan. Thank you for the chance in great initiative.
My tweet
My Steem post
What Does Decentralization Mean To Me

To me, it's very simple:

D - Dude
E - Everyone
C - Can
E - Escape
N - Nasty
T - Trolls
R - Remembering
A - A
L - Loud
I - Invisible
Z - Zebra
A - Acting
T - Trashy
I - Instead
O - Of
N - Nice

Yeah. Just another useless @NoNamesLeftToUse joke. Carry on. Don't mind me.

Great initiative!

This is nice. Will make my entry right away
Decentralisation means freedom to me

I don't gonna make a post.
Just gonna leave here one word in response to the title.


Still waiting for the announcement...


It's the nuclear option. I don't feel quite ready to press that button. I will if I feel they are close to killing Steem.


Who is they?


Hmmmm i the nuclear you buy steemit? ;D


I'm pretty sure Justin won't want to sell Steemit, since he'll be getting a lot less than what he paid for it...

What does decentralization mean to you, is it important, why?

Yes it is important and we must change the voting rules for Witnesses to achieve decentralization.

Without decentralization we get what we have had up until now. A group of witnesses who change the rules to suit and enrich the very people who vote them in. In turn disadvantaging the vast bulk of users.

We need to move away from Stake Based Witness Voting.

  ·  작년

Lets start with the basic foundations of what we're all aiming for and if most of us are even on the same page. Maybe @justinsunsteemit is for example on a totally different page or many of the witnesses that you're talking about then maybe there's a bridge or maybe they just could hang out in their own chain where decentralization means something completely different to them.


Yes i dare say that Sun has a completely different page than many. I saw his suggestion of changing the rules to trons example but we would end up in the exact same situation that we have from the beginning.

It would be great if we could run two different experiments running parallel and get to play a role in both parts. What do you think? run one part as being completely decentralized 1 Person gets to vote 20 or thirty witnesses and Stake based variant they claim will work.

Mr Dan. This is a very good insight into what the Community really is to Us. We are so glad we have people like you here on Steem. Those who seek freedom for others as well. This great Initiative will bring more people into freedom doors for decentralization. Thank you sir for this great Positive Initiative growth for your this Community.

I am new here.
I would love to share my thoughts and contribute to this community.
I'm having trouble reconciling how we can have a discussion about decentralisation of the Steem blockchain that requires participants have a Twitter account? That seems tragically ironic while extremely relevant to the whole point of the conversation

Decentralised blockchain is a world changing opportunity for everyone to take control of their individual value.
I believe this is a watershed moment for humanity, and as such, it is imperative that this ideal be the driving motivation for our efforts.
If we compromise that principle we will only be enslaving ourselves exponentially by forgoing the ultimate opportunity to establish true freedom for all.

"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Mark 8:36

Thank you for building the hive community! I am seeing that you curates photography contents. I am also sharing my photographies to my blog hope you will like my work. Visit my profile to see them 😊. Thank you!

This is quite interesting as wrote about decentralization and system design around the same time as this post :-) here it is : https://steempeak.com/hive-175254/@bobinson/decentralisation-and-system-design

Well, I went ahead and gave it a shot. I wanted to say a lot more but it was already pretty long. I hope a few check it out. https://steempeak.com/decentralizesteem/@stever82/what-does-decentralization-mean-to-me

Sounds great & powerful initiative Dan. With steemhostiletakeover, we have many stories to tell. Thanks for this offer.

there are no right or wrong answers.

Perhaps I can prove this statement false:

  • Dencentralisation = 0
  • Decentralisation = Tron
  • Decentralisation = Justin Sun's way or the Highway

I hope I changed your mind that there are most certainly wrong answers

Anyway really neat topic and I will write on this soon. I studied participatory democratic and sustainable development a little while in school and although not the same as decentralised governance, there are some lessons to be learned or applied. Also there are no wrong answers =P

What Does Decentralization Mean To Me? Screw you! lol

Thanks for the give me information @theycallmedan

hey, i want to mention that for steempeak.com, these domains are available:
hivepeople.io is available.
Protect your name with these domains:
hivepeople.com is also available.
these make way more sense than "peak"

As a person who is 17, I can definitely see how decentralization would be a huge step to a better future. I'm hopeful to see some mass adoption soon.

Why did you downvoted my post?

It't the same steem it always was, just with more broken promises! lol
