My resignation from Steemit

4개월 전

I have resigned as Head of Communications for Steemit. I’m going to take a little time to gather my thoughts and get some rest. Hope we can Steem On.

Thank you @andrarchy for everything you've done for Steem. You were one of the first connections I made on this chain and you've been one of the most valuable members of the Steemit team.

Hey Andrew! Sorry to hear about this. Must've been a tough call to make.

Thank you for updating us and more importantly for your contribution and all the effort you put in to help steer things around. Much appreciate all your effort brother. We're here for you man.

·

Probably not too tough of a call given STINCs participation in a hostile takeover of the network today. But it is good to see that the takeover is obviously not supported by @andrarchy or @vandeberg given their resignations.

Now here's to hoping for a more decentralized chain run for and by community that can employee these two individuals in the future to continue their great work.

·
·

But can it become more decentralized if witnesses leave? Are we losing decentralized witnesses? In other words, how many witnesses are owned or somewhat connected to Sun, etc?

·

how many witnesses are owned or somewhat connected to Sun

I believe just 20 (currently the top 20). You can see which witnesses these are by looking at the witnesses @dev365 has voted for at https://steemd.com/@dev365. These sock-puppet witnesses are @car2001, @respect888, @paintingclub, @toke2049, @onestepaday, @bostonawesome, @nicetry001, @waitforyou1, @jumphigh, @flyingfly1, @aheadofslow, @happylife123, @hunger365, @cloudysun, @night11pm, @agirl10000, @coronashallgo, @high46, @eastooowest, @goodguy24

But can it become more decentralized if witnesses leave?

The community-elected witnesses will not leave. Either they will regain control by getting more votes, which has almost happened or there will be a community fork where users decide to adopt a version of the blockchain without Sun and the attackers.

·
·
·
·

So, in other words, we have seen Steemit staff resign but many or all of the former top 20 witnesses continue(d) to be witnesses, that is their servers are still running. Is there only one official website for voting for witnesses? I've voted before like two years ago. Do I have to vote again? Does my vote expire? Do we have like elections, like terms of like two years or something? I am guessing not. But I could go back and look at my votes. I voted for Jerry. It appears his name was crossed out. So, I probably have a few free votes, assuming I can only vote for like 30 witnesses.

·
·
·
·
·

Is there only one official website for voting for witnesses?

No there are many sites, because voting at the end of the day is just a type of transaction on the blockchain. Here are some sites you can use:

Do I have to vote again? Does my vote expire? Do we have like elections, like terms of like two years or something?

Votes do not expire, but you should use more of your votes. There is no downside to voting for multiple witnesses. I'd recommend voting for all of the community witnesses that are close to surpassing the sock-puppet accounts.

Let me know if you have any more questions!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Another option is to vote by proxy to a user like @theycallmedan. See his post at

The benefit of this approach is that you only have to do one action and your votes will update whenever @theycallmedan updates his votes. Hopefully he will keep them updated to which witnesses need them most.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

How many witnesses can you vote for? Up to 30?

·
·
·

Go vote for the witness from 21 to 41

·
·
·
·

is there an official website for witness voting?

·

@arcange, I hope the lifetime friends we've all made on this platform can still continue to meet once a year, even if the get-togethers are called by a new name.

You and @vandeberg were the faces that made me believe in Steemit Inc. as not some evil corporation, but as a company that had people who actually cared about what was being built here. Steemit Inc. will not be the same without you and probably won't get much support from the community going forward. You two are going to get lots of love from everyone though. :P

·

🥺 i didn't expect from you any way you make good for community thank you 😊

Respect man.

What a fucking shit show.

Were you forced to resign or was it your own decision?
I've seen that Vandeberg stepped down too.. Is Justin cleaning house or are you guys just sick of his asshat shit?

Anyways man, thank you for your service to the blockchain.
Best of luck in your future endevours.

·
·
·

Thanks for the answer captain.

Power to you. Stepping away from this shitshow will likely add years to your life. Good luck to you in whatever you do!

Holy shit. Thank you. For all that you've done and for taking a stance. What a sad day for #Steem. As I said to @vandeberg, I wish I could hire you myself. Please don't be a stranger - and take a good rest. We'll #SteemOn, however that's going to look like from now on.

Damn bro! Thanks for everything you did for the steem blockchain. :(

The reason for the resignation is pretty clear. The Steemit team bought by Tron was not informed about the block chain take over (all top witnesses are installed from Tron with the help of the SP of the bigger exchanges) a few hours ago. So now we know that Steemit didn't know about it or was forced not to communicate that. And it's not a good sign for the announcements planned for the next few days.
What can we do? Everybody who has STEEM on an exchange pull it back on the steem blockchain into YOUR account were you control the secret keys. I'm curious to see what will happen if everybody tries to transfer his/her STEEM. Spoiler: The exchanges have powered them all up. So they can't give them back to you! They make their business with your SP.
! Please take control again about your STEEM, login to your exchange and transfer your STEEM to your steem account.

·

Have you written any posts talking about this? Excellent advice that I wish more people would consider. But many are a bit too unaware of what exchanges, like centralized banks, do with our dough.

·
·

Not yet - but I will do one.

·
·
·

In light of recent events this would be the right choice imo! Rest up, reflect, keep your head up and come back stronger.

Damn man.... you represented what was right to me about steemit leadership. This is a truly sad day for me and so many.
If for gathering those thoughts....if a vacay is in the cards... i got your back... mi casa es su casa...hit me up without hesitation!!

Respect!

I have the greatest respect for you in standing up against tyranny.

Hey Andrew thanks for everything you did! it was a pleasure having you around. I am crossing fingers that you can clear your head and we all can steem on. Yours
Jan

I know you from here, followed and read your posts. I know good things will come out with your decision and good luck to you. We will keep steeming.


Posted via Steeming.com

Shit. I really feel for you as I know how much of your passion and creativity was put into Steemit and what it could potentially achieve.

Hopefully, there's still plenty of room to build on so many of the ideas and visions we've shared over the past 2 and a half years where I've felt I've been lucky to call you a friend in this space, and that we can indeed Steem on further than ever.

Fredrik

Many blessings of peace and rest today. Thank you for your service to the blockchain!

Sorry to hear this @andrarchy. As I told @vandeberg you will always have my support and I am very appreciative of the work you have put in here for the Steem blockchain and community.

·

Thanks man. Appreciate that

Hi @andrachy

I respect your decision.

Would you consider voting for the witnesses currently outside the top 20?

Thank you for showing your loyalty. These few lines mean so much.

Respect. Way to stick to your guns in the face of what's happening. Never easy to quit.

He Andrew, as all other said, the commission with you. Get some rest but please stay in touch with us all.

🌴

Thank you andrarchy!

Are we seeing steem fall apart right now?

·

It has been falling apart from the beginning, and especially over the past 18 months, but yes, this is another big plummet for the platform and community.

·
·

What a major bummer this is. I always thought that society couldn't uphold a project like this properly without major disturbance of justice, but I wanted it to succeed soo badly.

·
·
·

Yeah, me too. I was so happy it existed and I was able to join in mid 2017. I felt a bit late, but I worked hard and invested everything I had in crypto, because I believed in it and put my money where my mouth was. I begged everybody I knew to get involved. A few did, but none are still around at this point. I feel like an idiot. I rode it alllllll the way down to the bottom. I even called the hostile takeover, more than a year ago. I'm sure I'm not the only one who saw it coming. Yet here I still am, in the ashes, holding the empty bag. I've got nothing but "I told ya so". :(

·
·
·
·

Oh well, better sooner than later. Hopefully there will be something better.

·
·

Maybe not from the beginning, but from 2017 December.
If you take a look at the statistics, it is clear.

·
·
·

Steem is sexy but I hate to watch it leave...

Thank you for everything you've done Andrew. I still remember our conversation on the boat tour during steemfest 1. How young and hopeful we were back then :) I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavours.. and keep in mind, the bigger journey has just begun, the path just looks a little different now.

You were the first Steemian I met in real life and continue to be the ideal of what this community is and/or should be. Steem on @andrarchy!

·

Good to see you again Doug. Wish it were under better circumstances 😂

My lovely one, keep the head up!!

Thank God you resigned!

You were not able to articulate a single meaningful thought.
You were not able to generate 1000 YouTube views.
Your message resonated with no one.

The whole Steemit team was so incompetent that you were only able to destroy 95+ % of the marketcap.

If you were a bit less cocky, now each one of you would have a mansion and a Ferrari.

Enjoy as an unemployed person

:D

Good Luck and all the best. Thank you for everything!

Is it really you, or somebody posting with the account?

take a good rest you earned it :) once you gathered your thoughts i hope you can send an application in steempeak.com/me/proposals for getting hired and developing by and for the community

The Steem community stands behind you. TY for your years of service to the Steem blockchain. Long live the king.

RealTalk:
In buseness, employee will resigned not because of his/her job, but because of people!

Thank you for your work here. Good luck, and sorry about what happened here

make sure you'll be back.

Wish you the best!! Thanks for being always present and supportive for the community!

Jesus christ! Another resignation. Thanks for sticking to your word and integrity.

Wow, now it's your turn. What a coincidence that one of each quit whenever I refresh the page. Who's next?

ps. Thank you and stay blessed!

·

Probably Eli?

Now we will only see @steemitblog announcements about thriving tron blockchain and how great everything is... Fuck...

You will be missed @andrarchy

·
·

I'm sure you all tried to be the voice of reason. Thanks for trying, as well as everything else you did for Steem.

Alright @andrarchy; take it easy. We appreciate the work you have done!

What the....

I don't know what to say. Hopefully this is not the sign for the end of STEEM because I love this Blockchain.

/salute

I can't wait to see what you tackle next.

Thank you for everything you have done.

Enjoy your rest. It is well deserved.

I can't even imagine how difficult this whole situation has been for the core Steemit team, especially coming from your position as a user-turned-employee. Thank you for everything you've done, and tried to achieve, for the blockchain. You will be missed.

Sad to read this, thanks for all your input, all the best for the future.

Sad to read this, thanks

Thanks Andrew for everything that you have done! Please enjoy your rest.

Holy smokes! Who else is resigning? Watching this thing implode is just the worst. Sorry you're having to resign.

Thank you @andrarchy. It's time to show we are a trully decentralized platform, with decentralized governance.

respect, dude

Thanks for being one of the greatest STEEM ambassadors over the years. Had a lot of great talks at the past 3 STEEMFests. Hope to have more. Cheers to a bright future

With you all the best. Your talents and leadership will be appreciated in many other companies. Thank you for everything.

Thanks for the work, see you on the other side, wherever that is. Get some rest, you deserve it!

Good for you and thank you for your work and dedication to the chain. Let's spin up the new chain and get this rockin again.

Good luck, man. Thanks for everything. I'd like to be able to say more but I can't today because it just starts with fuck and ends with this.

Thanks for all your work. Good luck!

I hate to see it, but glad to see that the actual Steemit team didn't support the move. Good luck!

Wishing you the best, and hopefully we will still see you around.

What a way to show support for the community.
Thanks for your hard work these years.

사임 한다고

Steem ♨♨♨ On !
FFS !

Shudang :/

thanks for all andrarchy. wish you well

Wow what is happening this is such a shit show right now. Mad respect to you and thanks for all you have done.

Time to pack our bag together with you my man...

I can only respect those with an honorable character and your actions are just that, honorable.

this sucks but i understand why. thanks for all you did for this blockchain...it was a lot.

Thank you for all that you've done for the Steem community over the years @andrarchy. You've shown today to be a man of honor and I deeply respect you for it. I look forward to your future endeavors and wish you all the best.

That is the only honest think to do...kudos.

You will be missed. Thank you all you have done for our community.

Thank you Andrarchy!

I’m very sorry it ended like this. Thank you for your contributions to this community!

You and @vandeberg both appear to be men of integrity @andrarchy. Once you have had some time, we hope to hear more from you and your perspective about all that has taken place today. "From the heart," as I am sure you have light to shed on events that may help us all in processing what has taken place.

Thank you for all your hard work @andrarchy

Thanks for everything. Get some rest.

Oh, boy.. This is getting real. Take care of yourself! I hope somehow this can all be worked out.

Thanks for everything you have done - I hope we see you with the Steem community wherever we end up. Steem on (somewhere)

Respect man.

Thank you!

Thanks for everything!

Thanks for the service so far and I hope that you will continue with the community.

Thank you for your efforts and all the best for the future.

I gave you shit.. Im not giving you shit anymore.

Steem is us, the community. We’ll be Steeming on one way or the other.

I feel honoured to have met you and talked to you over the years Andrew. This is another proof of the type of person that you are. Your Integrity and Core Values speak by themselves . I hope somehow, something good comes out of all this shit.

Hope we can Steem On.

I really hope you stay part of the STEEM community - wish you all the best!

Sorry to hear that and I am happy for you to take stand instead of staying in the middle. But here's something more positive to think 🤔 about that you don't hear alot on Steemit these days :

What if the Tron acquisitin is a good thing (despites all the moral values). Think of it this way, whales eat whales. The original objective of Tron is to take over all (a bit like amazon). So in the long term, if the goal is maintained, steemit would be in the way of Tron. The fact that steemit is approached in the early stages of Tron's dream of total dominion, just shows that steemit has power and would be a great ally.

In the long run, only the giants will exist. For the development , I think Tron is great!! I got further in dapp that steemit, and that in a matter of days.

See this communication issue as a highier plan that you had no control over. Your long term reputation at steemit should not be trashed, but reinforced after thoses events. Hopefully those arguments will help and will be seen as constructive...even if there all only a bunch of 'what if'.

·

Are you endorsing centralized Amazon?

·
·

Ahah, nope, just pointing out how they took over

Thank you for all you have done. And know that there’s a place for you in the next chapter of this community.

Sorry it came to this, look forward to hearing of future endeavors.

Appreciate all the work and effort you've put into this place. Lots of respect for you, dood.

Thank you for everything you have done for our blockchain and community. Stay strong. I hope you are right and we will Steem On again ;)

Sad day @andrarchy. Best of luck.

We need you, what we will do alone ??

This is unbelievable!, why are we experiencing this as community of steemit, Inc., lots of well devoted team leaving the post vacant?....hmmm......only time will tell.

Thank you for all your efforts @andrarchy!

It sucks that you gotta resign but integrity and principles come first.

Can I invite you to join us in whaleshares.io? Our whales are kinder and no downvotes exist because of a tipping system.

Best of luck, you will be missed!

Respect for you.

why now one by one people resign themselves. What's wrong with Steemit?
Good luck always comes for you @andrarchy

One by one the best people gone from Steemit. I feel lost you @andrarchy. You once helped me with a recommendation from @donkeypong when I had a problem with my account. Maybe you have forgotten, but I have never forgotten your kindness.

I hope you stay abreast of developments at Steemit Inc. even though it's no longer in the system. You have a major role and service in developing Steemit. and don't let Steemit dive into a cliff. Steemit communities around the world expect this platform to continue and continue to grow.

Good luck @andrarchy...

stay safe bro

Thanks for your work here Andrew and keeping us in the loop. Respect for the tough decision. Maybe see you on Steem classic or something. :)

Wish you all the best, always respect your great service.

Please reconsider it steem community definitely undo all the actions taken by justin sun and his team or supporters

We only met briefly in #theramble, but you were kind and informative. I wish you the best of luck my friend... thank you...

trustin justin

They don’t deserve you . All the best and thank you

the biggest sin in life is to not have tried so i think your soul might yet be safe :p ... if anyone still believed in the holy twennity and king steemit inc as the saviours of the chain by now i'd call naive b/c i don't wanna use bad language ... you got talent you got skillz, AND you got the moral of having quit a company that's trying to get itself in trouble :p

im sure there will be openings hahah

Thank you for everything you have done for Steem and best of luck in your future endeavours!

Good luck and thanks for everything. I really appreciated all your efforts!

Ps: I was waiting for and expecting this announcement. You are a person with integrity and values.

!BEER

Thank you for all that you've done for Steem and the communities. Rest well

try to get everybody to withdraw steem from exchange. that is all we can do to help steem network

Still respects your decision

Respect and thanks for all the hard work you and the team has done. Good luck in the future!

I HOPE MORE PEOPLE STAND UP FOR THEIR BELIEFS.

@andrarchy, Steem Community can understand how difficult this Decision is for you brother. Thank you so much for your contributions and efforts towards the Development Of Steem. Good wishes from my side and Steem On always. Stay blessed.

I am very happy to read this wonderful news. Congratulations to you from the heart, sir Andrew I was very pleased for you Greetings, long as you love.

Good luck, Andrew 🍀

This is hard man, you were one person I loved the most at STINC, I pray you success in your future endeavors.

I’m sure a dying community is not what Justin had in mind when he bought steem. Steem is the community, not the ticker or coin

Go your way, take your time, be reenergizing and come back a tenfold stronger.

We all appreciate you so much. Sending hugs.

This is so sad @andrarchy and I just hope that with some miracle steem platform will be saved and would flourish.

Oh no... If Andrew's out, Steemit inc is dead. The last one out shut the light. Srsly considering a power down.

Can you move on to a different place? Like Weku?

I was very sad to see your tweet - to which I responded. For many, and I include myself, you were (as your role required) the voice of Steemit. It made sense and was sane.

I have no doubt you have been in an untenable situation for the last while.

You deserve more than just a rest - I hope that you will find peace in all of this.

And do what I would do: cuddle my spouse and the kitties.

Be well and yes, I agree:

Hope we can Steem On.

Fiona

Thanks for everything,

Be interesting to hear your views on recent events once you're ready!

Thanks @andrarchy for everything you did during your tenure... I still remember getting a feeling of hope when you joined the team and we suddenly had a Communications Director, someone who might actually interact with the community.

Much respect!

Oh yeah, and cats rock!

Wish you the best for your future!

Sorry to hear that. It should be a lot to handle. Keep in touch, you've been one of the coolest people I've met from Steemit Inc.

Respect!

Congrats for doing the right thing and for all your work here. I support you.

Thanks for taking this decision Andrew, I bet this was not an easy one, and we are not forgetting what you did for this community!

this saddens me, but I very much respect your decision and I hope you can get some rest as I think your skills might be needed on a new project soon :-)

Thanks for the work you did. Steem was a much better place because of it. It was great crossing paths at SteemFest4. Best wishes for your future success.

Best of luck man. I know this must have been hell for you guys these past few weeks. Thanks for your effort and hard work.

What the freaking hell is all of this shit! Come on...

Lots of Love❤

Andrew, you and the core team have been in our thoughts. This must have been (is) an incredibly stressful time. No decisions are easy in this environment. Thank you for all your inspiring work and I look forward to your continued inspirations.

Thank you for your contributions and savvy!

Delegate POS was the weakness, they exploited it. bitmessage, zeronet, i2p, freenet etc don't have this flaw. I know it's hard to hear, facts remain.

What to say. First thank you or I understand? I think it’s understandable but after 4 years that must hurt and indeed gathering thought I guess is the best thing. I wish you wisdom and well and hope that we see you On the steemisfere. Appriaciate the last interview with Marc last week and for Steemit and all members, it’s a loss for all of us.
Take care
Britt

Thanks for all the efort man!

That's really very Shocking For us.

All the best with your next move! Respect all you've done even if we did give you shit for it many times, it was all love man!

Our support and sympathy will accompany you as you take your break.

Thanks for being with the team for all these years! Best of luck to you and I hope you enjoy the time off!

I appreciate all your hard work you did for our community and platform

Sad to hear but wish you all the best. Must have been quite difficult lately that's why you all going in the same direction. Take care but I'm sure we will see each other around here anyways :)

I am so sorry to hear this. But, we understand that sometimes in life one just needs to take a break and step back to gain perspective. Thank you for everything you have done for the blockchain. We love it here and hopefully, it will continue to move forward in a postitive way for all concerned. Best wishes for you. ♥

@andrarchy, This was just a hurdle in the road. I believe that after you gather your thoughts, the next leg of the race will be better than the last.

Thanks for the all of the awesome work you have done for the crypto (much broader than just Steemit) community thus far. ...

'until we meet'

Thank you for you hard work and dedication to the Steem Blockchain.

Thx for the hard work, I wish the chain could hire you somehow :)

$190 payout? Not quite as good as what me and @Ned got before bailing out of this shit hold but you gotta take what you can get when the ship starts sinking and the rats start jumping over board. I gotta say we have had a lot of heads of communication roll through here and honestly I don't think any of them have really ever communicated with the steemit eco ssytem very well, if at all. Good luck on your adventures. I gotta get back to partying with Ned, This cocaine isn't gonna snort itself off these lady boy hookers asses itself.

It's a very sad day, @andrarchy. My thoughts are with you.

Thankfully, Steemhouse Publishing will scarcely be affected by the latest developments, other than needing a name change and some rebranding. We'll carry on. Please stay in touch.

I am curious to hear what transpired 🤘 take it easy homie ❤️

Congratulations. I wish you a great life. 💕
