Calibrae is setting the end of Steem as Today
did not expect this at all. It was only a month ago, maybe nearer to 6 weeks, that I last was running a witness. Back then, the blockchain had swollen to 14 gigabytes. Here is the block log that is up to date as of last night:
22G -rw-rw-r-- 1 loki loki 22G Aug 6 10:34 block_log
It is now verging on 22gb, the exact number of bytes in what was current 12 hours ago is:
-rw-rw-r-- 1 loki loki 23048057620 Aug 6 10:34 block_log
Technically, that is 23 salesman's gigabytes, as in, based on 1,000,000,000 bytes per gigabyte.
I'm not gonna waste my resources trying to sanitise the chain while letting it grow any further.
Whatever your balance is right now, if you are not a preminer, this is what you will have in your migrated account at Calibrae.
I did not expect this at all.
You all think I've been excessive in my verve towards this, but, please, 50% growth in blockchain size in only 6 weeks, or maybe a bit less? C'mon. There is a serious problem here.
The rate of growth of the blockchain is beyond ridiculous. I keep seeing all these memos offering resteem services, and celebrating my x thousand followers, and I am even wondering now, do I have to limit memos to 128 characters, do I need to remove followers from the database? I think so!
The Purge will be based on blockchain data from today.
So, feel free to continue to liquidate your hard earned and risked investments from here on in. The new chain will not include those outflows, however, it will remove as much as possible that can be algorithmically discovered of the preminers 'assets', and with the help of anyone who wants to do further analysis to try and identify the laundering processes of the preminers.
Together we can make a blogchain that is worth being a part of
This one is heading for the sewer in 3, 2, 1...
