Hello & Cheers!! I'm a content detection and information bot. You are receiving this reply because a short link or links have been detected in your post/comment. The purpose of this message is to inform your readers and yourself about the use of and dangers of short links.

To the readers of the post: Short links are provided by url shortening services. The short links they provide can be useful in some cases. Generally their use is benign. But as with all useful tools there are dangers. Short links can be used to hide all sorts of things. Quite frequently they are used to hide referral links for instance. While not dangerous this can be deceptive. They can also be used to hide dangerous links such as links to phishing sites, sites loaded with malware, scam sites, etc. You should always be extremely cautious before clicking on one. If you don't know and trust the poster don't click. Even if you do you should still be cautious and wary of any site you are sent to. It's always better to visit the site directly and not through a short link.

To the author of the post: While short links may be useful on some sites they are not needed on steemit. You can use markdown to format your links such as this link to steemit. It's as simple as [steemit]( Unlike short links this allows the reader to see where they are going by simply hovering over the link before they click on it.

This message was created by a bot. It is part of the ongoing fight against spam and phishing attacks on steemit. If you did not use short links in your post and feel you have received this message in error you can contact @fubar-bdhr on discord or @fubar.bdhr on steemit chat to report the issue.

market manipulation?

I'd say that is more likely than not! Good Point!

This is the problem with open-source and decentralized.

At any point in time, the block-chain could fork. And most people would never notice, also, it may never matter.

I do not know the people in charge of the miners, all I can comment upon is that there are a lot of people that care about bitcoin, but were hurt by broken promises. This isn't done and finished,...

but, what will happen? The price of bitcoin will continue up and up and up, with some downs in between on its way to world wide acceptance.

I never considered that forking the blockchain could be hidden from the masses.. Sounds like a good conspiracy theory! :-) Totally agree that bitcoin will climb higher. So any time to buy BTC is a good time to buy BTC...I guess

A forked blockchain would require a wide acceptance before it happens to have any chance at long-term support after the fact. It's not really a problem.

Ok I'm confused. First it was on. Then it was off now..... it's 1/2 on?
Some are doing it some are not?

What are 'they' thinking? is the plan to kill BTC in the market place?
and who are 'they' anyhow?
