This was a really interesting read, always good to get Dan's thoughts. Thanks for sharing this with us

Thank you again for the excellent source of news and information about ongoing EOS developments. I'm really enjoying following your blog, exciting times ahead!

Great, I never knew of this, I'm definitely participating and, sharing this info to as many as are interested in participating

This is gold in the form of text

As always, thank you for your amazing job in summing up the discussion.
The one thing I´m not so happy with though is, that when Dan is asked for the relationships between STEEM/BTS and EOS he always responds with "EOS is way better" and with that basically saying, that STEEM will be obsolete in the near future. I mean, I´m sure he is right, that every new thing he is doing will be "better", but this may happen in 1-2 years with EOS too and I surely don´t want to see any of the "old" services die already in their infancy, just because "dad" has a new baby ;)


I agree. I was sad to see him say "no" that BTS has not association and no plans to redeploy on EOS. His message is basically that it is up to the governance communities and I see what he means. He can't force a community to join EOS and isn't likely to pay their bills.

BTS governance has 600M in reserves. Why aren't they voting on various plans to integrate with EOS?!?! Now is the time before both STEEM and BTS are usurped.


Right, from Dans perspective, he is only founding new stuff and then moving on to the next, but it´s like telling a 2 year old to move out and live by its own - chances are, that this won´t end in a good way. Competition between the Larimer blockchains won´t be beneficial, since they have similar goals and the supply of cash flow is limited. Again, for him it won´t matter, but people like us, who have invested time and money into Steem may have a rude awakening.


So I've been following EOS as closely as I can without being someone who writes code that compiles properly and I've got some concerns about EOS. Would love to hear your thoughts on it. https://steemit.com/eos/@gmikeyg/raising-realistic-concerns-regarding-eos-proposed-operation

Keep up your good work mate. This is truly the best community!

Great answers, thanks for sharing. And...root! haha :D

@eosgo thank you very much for taking the time summarizing it. I'm in the telegram group but there are a lot of messages to read.
Do you read the messages on BP group, dev group, or governance group?
