Steem is Blocked in China and It's My Fault?

in dtube •  2 months ago


VPN is working again!! (for now)

Within 24 hours of posting my last video, many dapps on the Steem blockchain became inaccessible in China. I actually got to see it blocked real time. I was on busy.org reading a post and then I clicked on my account to view my blog page and boom, none of the posts were displaying. At first I thought it might be a bug so I asked around and other people outside of China weren't having any problems. Ever since seeing @joythewanderer's video, it became official that it was only a China issue.

In this video, let me share my opinion on why information is censored in China. Hopefully this educates a lot of people out there. There are other reasons why apps are censored, but this is probably the most important one in my opinion.

Thanks for reading & watching

First of all awesome t-shirt.Haha.
Man,Chinese people have the same mentality like Greek people but we are far less in population.
No one stands in line here,they all throw trash everywhere,everyone parks their car wherever the hell they want and in general it a mess.
I can understand why the Chinese goverment is doing this shit and I think younger people like you know how to use VPN and surf the net.
It might have been your video man for real cause it was your dick that also caused 9/11 if I remember correct.

Lol i thought the no lines was just a Chinese thing! Maybe the Chinese government should take over Greece to fix the economy 😯
Basically, if youre smart enough to use a VPN, then youre smart enough to handle anti chinese information lol

My dragon shirt is epic! Bought it in a random small shop.

Not much of a surprise really, it was only a matter of time.

The more they clamp down the less likely it will be possible to maintain public order.

The internet has traditionally been a release valve that quells most social unrest.

I can't wait for the real shitshow to begin, its going to get interesting.

Agreed. It was only a matter of time. Im not sure what will happen in the future.

It is hard to be censored, you are just not free so I just am not liking Communism because it is harsh for the people @kenanhd
I am sure that there are a lot of Chinese are using VPN to circumvent this kind of oppressive government.

Thanks for the perspective. Well illustrated with your examples, and analogies too :)
Peace.

That is an interesting take on everything and I didn't realize everyone acts like a horde of zombies instead of standing in a line.

"I want more chicken!"

Lmao. Living in a new country really gives you a new perspective. People have a tendency to assume that everyone thinks like them which causes misunderstandings.

I don't know if you can actually get out, I don't know you love the country that much, but having other platform like facebook blocked in china is not a cause to worry so much, but having steem blocked is so Fucked up really, I think obviously it's time you leave the Chinese republic really.

·

I dont care if Facebook is blocked because I dont use it. Steem being blocked is very inconvenient because I like it and use it. Maybe this can be a sign to try and make steem less censorable. I hope nodes become decentralised in a way that makes it impossible to block. I still like this country. Only time will tell whether I end up leaving for good.

Wow. Man, get out of there while you can. That is some scary stuff. Yikes, tailoring information to avoid possible hysteria? Ick I would never want to live in China, visit for sure. That is some serious BigBrother scary shit. Hopefully no modern day Mao takes over China. Well, I hope once that older generation dies off they will allow you to see basic information on the internet. So are you not able to view any of the blockchain at all now?

·

Nope. Trump is scarier.

Why is that?

I lived in China long enough. They would let you know what they deemed all right, and what wouldn't. So far, Trump is too unpredictable to me in a bad sense.

Bottom line. It is very important to have an informed society. The fact of the matter, Chinese people do not have the facts except for what the government deems acceptable.

Younger generation use VPN to get to the outside world. An extra step, but at least it's doable. It is a communist country after all.

AnonQ is a CIA asset.
Numbing people to wait, and accept what they otherwise wouldn't, until it's too late.
Peace.

The Chinese mindset needs a “big brother” type governing them as of now. The government does a lot for them that wouldnt have gotten done if it was left up to the people. They have a different cultural upbringing and a lot of history.
