On the flip side of things, I would not be surprised if the 3 Sr which didn't upg their nodes were not even aware of what's going on and perhaps only in for the financial gains and could not have been bothered with upgs. Even though ethically it was wrong for @justinsunsteemit to do it, however like it could have been concented by all the SR to make the move even though the implications from the PR stand point would have been disasterous. But I guess only the guys within Tron's chain would have known what exactly transpired

Steem witnesses are more concern of the stability of the chain and growth of the chain. Plus everything is communicated more easily within the Steem chain.. I agree with you that the optimism of Tron acquisition was taken positively by many however it has not been assured or reinforced. Let's see what comes next and keep a watchful eye on each others backs.

You can keep my witness vote.

If I am ever forced to endorse tron by default being a steem user, I will sell everything because I hate Tron and Do not want their token in my life.


I am more than happy to disagree about something in life, but never have I ever forced someone to stop using a currency of their preference, or altered their economic principals to my liking.

Have a great day and thanks for respecting the independent Steemians like myself and @darkflame (we both ave multiple accounts) who doesn't have time to engage this soft fork like we do.

There is many suffering in silence and we need to protect those unaware that this bias has even entered our sphere of influence on steem.

Look like you have to stay in line with Justin’s wishes if you do not want to be punished 😱

This depends on the viewpoint. The majority of the Steem blockchain users are punishing themselves (and doom the Steem blockchain) by being selfish and greedy. Nowadays there are 23-32 000 daily active Steem blockchain users, 40 000+ posts per day, but the average number of comments per post is only 1-3, and most of these comments are bot, bot-like, spam, spam-like comments. A lot of posts do not even receive comments. There are a lot of ignored/overlooked posts. Most of the Steem blockchain users are focusing only on their own posts, but they do not care about other people's posts. Nowadays the real human interaction is rare on the Steem blockchain. Many people left and still leaving Steemit and the Steem blockchain. Not so appealing, right?

I appreciate the update. While I don't know what Tron means for our platform (yesour platform), every time I reada thoughtful, informed post like this, I feel a little less bewildered. Even if you're just musing aloud, at least it's something. Thank you
