Steem's Big Chance for World-Wide Media AttentionsteemCreated with Sketch.

Maybe some of you have heard of the recent hack of secret 9/11-related documents by the notorious hacker group @thedarkoverlord.

They are now releasing the information in their possession piece by piece, demanding payment in Bitcoin. They first went public on Twitter, but - to nobody's surprise - the centralised platform has quickly banned them and so has Reddit, where they turned to next. The good news is that, apparently thanks to @ausbitbank, they have now made this very blockchain their exclusive new presence in the clear web and have cryptographically verified their identity - let's welcome @thedarkoverlord to Steem!

If this hack is indeed as big as Snowden or the Panama Papers, Steem will soon be getting a lot of media attention - in fact, I found out about @thedarkoverlord's new presence on Steem when reading a news article on another site! This is the chance that we have been waiting for to get the word out about the censorship-resistance of this Blockchain! This could also be our chance to tell the world that Steem is more than Steemit:

I saw the news about this on traditional news sites, but did not realise the full implication - this could indeed bring much needed eyes on the platform.

Now this is exciting! Thanks for digging it out for us Julian :) Would be really awesome if the Steem blockchain became the leading medium for important uncensored news and information.

That would be amazing! Certain frontends may be forced to impose censorship to comply with laws, but these information will always be on the blockchain.

This post has been included in today's SOS Daily News - a digest of all you need to know about the State of Steem.



This may interest you. Looks like they caught the banhammer for the steemit.com frontend.
