I thought 30% of all chats where discussing some other approaches / visions between the two big boys since months - think Dan has other visions and wants to develop new stuff his master brain is thinking of - he is a tech guy while Ned is a business boy - so I was not totally surprised. Also reading his background from bishares to steem and now resigning here makes sense and we shall not be afraid.

Dan says here why he chose to leave. Prior to his resignation, I had only ever asked him to stay. We were surprised and disappointed.

Yes, that pretty much sums it up hehe...

In all seriousness, and after I digested the news, I gather my thoughts on his departure here "Farewell @dan - these are my thoughts on your departure" ...

I know you got to visit @dan and @ned personally on Steemit Inc headquarters, so I would like to hear your thoughts on the subject too.

As many people might be aware, I have not been on Steemit for almost a week.
I had a vision around March 2 and it wasn't a favorable Steemit image that came to my mind. It actually scared me, and I have stayed away, as the negativity and fighting had taken a toll on my nervous system.
I went to the Dash Forum to see how that community treated people and have been there ever since.
I find it strange that my vision has come into reality. I had no knowledge of Dan leaving. But I felt something terrible in my gut from a week ago and couldn't bring myself to come here due to the intensity.

Yes, I have seen you post a lot on Medium lately.

You seem to have cought the Dash train early, congrats!

I do hope the steemit community can recover, I can imagine it will be managed more as a Business now, we shall see!

Best of wishes in your new found Cryptocurrency career, I have personally seen you evolve from someone who didnt know anything about Bitcoin to one of the most read writers in the scene.

I think we´ve all been speechless for a certain time.
However, this shouldn´t be a reason to quit for any of us. There are still a lot of adventures to be lived and stories to be told here :)

Yeah, it kind of threw me for a loop too :/ Meanwhile yesterday I was comment-beseeching Amanda B Johnson to come and check Steemit out.

Are you really surprised? Steemit was so obvious scam from the beginning; with a high inflation rate and complicated power down system it was easy to see that no one but Larimer and his group who instamined all the shitcoins in the beginning were the only ones who benefited. Larimer did what was expected all the time and run away with his money probably fearing that the regulators would intervene at some point.

This seems to have a lot of people stuck.
So many rumors going on to wish it was just something a bit more telling to why. But I'm sure he has his reasons and he will prob still continue to be amazing and to help crypto advance. Id be pretty scared of that next projects tho lol.

I love the animation @stellabelle
I still love it here - warts and all, but I'm definitely going to check out DASH because I want to learn more about cryptocurrency. I've seen a few of your Twitter comments to pique my interest. :)

Shocking news for sure, and very unexpected.

Steem is doing okay so far though: http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/steem/

Congrats to you on your Dash investments!

I haven't been on in a few months. Sad to see that my account value has basically gone down to almost $0, the creator is resigning, and Tone Veys prediction that Steemit is a ponzi scheme is looking like it's true.
