Is The Steem Blockchain Missing a Huge Opportunity ?

in blockchain •  2 months ago

With freedom of speech & censorship at the forefront of the news right now because of Alex Jones (mailchimp/linkedin the latest to ban him?) and Infowars you would think a decentralized/censorship proof chain such as Steem should be getting more buzz and play in the media.

Are we missing a great chance to show off the Steem blockchain and SteemIt? Grant it we'd need to have faster sign-ups! come on SteemIt,Inc let's take advantage of these things!

What are your thoughts?

Other worthy mentions of this issue from other Steemians on SteemIt: @richardcrill , Will the Recent Censorship of Alex Jones Bring Attention to Steemit? , @lukewearechange The Truth About Alex Jones And InfoWars Being Banned, and finally @taskmaster4450 The Situation With InfoWars Shows How D.Tube, DLive And STEEM Is Needed: Decentralization!!!.

I would like to see how long Alex Jones would hold it here on Steemit before his account will be trolled and flagged to oblivion by the Whales here.

Point taken lol .... well, the haters could buy some stake also, in order to flag him into oblivion ? ;-)

That's what I was thinking. Get that dude on here then a huge celebrity hater buys up a tone of steem to troll him. I hope it is John Oliver.

This will only be good for steemit. Most likely yes, is a good answer to it.

I suppose as early adopters like we all are we have an obligation to let others know about SteemIt/Steem ?

Hahahaha!😂😂😂

censorship proof

Are you kidding? Steemit is far from censorship-free. Some people with high SP try to muzzle others here because they have a different political opinion. Recent victims I am aware of: @kelte, @rokit

·

You realize you can never have what you write erased. It is always on the blockchain forever. This is all I meant by that. Nothing to do with SP.

·
·

I see your point, you are right - the content is there, but the messengers are punished financially and by this discouraged from free speech. This is also a form of censorship.

·

·

No, not necessarily. The financial incentive should be second. The blockchain helps show all of what is here, and nobody can stop that. Some front ends choose not to disclose content that has been voted too low, but thats their choice. There are others who don't hide.

Many didn't believe in Steemit,
They see it as ridiculous,
Now steemit value keep drowning,

·

It will be fine. Such doom & gloom!

Hey, if he comes here, he'll bring along a lot of people and that can help us raise the price of steem and gain more attention to STEEM.

I agree. Despite what peoples view are on the guy the more people that have huge followings the better we all are!
