Feel like all parties need a win-win, I really don't think it's anyone taking away what we all have put into Steem thus far.
If you think about it, with this acquisition, Tron can't succeed by diminishing Steem nor do I see Steem growing and winning back old users as well as new ones with awesome apps (openlink/openseed, smt, steemit 2.0, and tons of new functionality like embedded secure decentralized chat) without in same way returning the good creds back to Tron Foundation for being the single largest Steem investor and not just the owner of Steemit Inc.
Being in the alt coin family of crypto, we will likely rise both in value and in our support base when other useful crypto succeed as well. In some ways our success is build into each other's good news, only now Tron kindly loosely join to the hip with Steem (for now).
The steady rise of Steem's price as well as resistance to dropping further is a refection of not just demand but of optimism by a growing community of investors/hodlers/and supporters, even without mooning back to highs of $8+.
One thing I'm certain, on the 10 year anniversary of Steem, it will be either hardly any traffic left (failed experiment) or it will have a much much higher traffic and valuable content then it ever had (as its value reflects its community who have invested proof of brain, creativity, support, leadership, and not just financial resources).
My guess is that if you're here for the long term, then you won't have any issues witnessing the awesomeness come to pass (assuming one stay healthy to enjoy the seeds they have sowed as well as the intrinsic rewards of one's patience).
