I'll throw some aggrandizement in every now and then for old time's sake. We'll miss you, @dan.

·

I also have the strange feeling aggrandizements of all kind will be coming our way in different forms from here on! Another big THANK YOU for all you've done @dan and may the force stay with you and us all.

Namaste :)

·

Thanks for this informative post. @eosio

From my observations, @dan and @eosio tend to voluntarily decline payment for their posts. Indeed your kind are rare. Kudos

·

That aggrandizement was so profitable for @ned, I guess he will have to go back to begging on street corners again...

Mark my words... Like Bitfinex decided to make a DEX based on EOS (eosfinex) https://medium.com/bitfinex/announcing-eosfinex-69eea273369f , MEDIUM will soon announce they will operate based on EOS also! (just one of my speculations)

·

Wouldn't THAT be surprising?!? NOT!!! I also see your speculations building into reality, especially with this news I was not aware of yet. Time will tell us all, soon enough, when it has ripened.

Namaste :)

·

ohh thats really sad we are waiting for the annoucment of the medium sir @liondani

·

I think that is too much of a leap. I think EOS will move to a blog on EOS in the future — perhaps one they or a collaborator creates.

·

That would be better. Building blockchains but avoid using them is ridiculous.

So you guys will not use Steemit anymore, just medium?

@ned is this what you wanted? Aren't we supposed to be building community, not breaking it down?

@ned I suggest you try to repair this with @dan

When the founder is pushed off the platform he created, you know that something is not right.

·

IMHO, a very wise notice

·

Like maybe his mental and emotional stability?

·
·

Maybe.

·

When he left a year ago he said he would stop posting on steemit anyway... perhaps this was an agreement..

I hate to see that we'll no longer be the primary place for new postings. I wish you all the best.

This sucks for sure! I feel stupid, I don't know what medium is. I could click the link and check it out, but...will I get paid? I'm so addicted to this payment system, that I just can't spend much time anywhere with less incentives! Lol That's how great this is! However, I will be keeping close eye on EOS and the future social platforms that come from it. I can support multiple types of channels! Sad to see you go, but I'm sure we'll meet again!! :-)

·

Probably because Steem isn't actually very decentralized and those in power here downvote them for aggrandizement. It's a pretty hostile platform for some people, and that needs to be fixed.

·
·

@dan's vote proves you are right and that was his motivation.

Some reference: https://steemit.com/steemit/@clayboyn/an-open-letter-to-ned

·
·

Where can I learn more about the decentralization issue?

·
·
·

I should clarify. I'm talking about the distribution of SP, not the technical design. Hopefully Steemit will dump enough stake that it will become increasingly decentralized, but so far I think Steemit has maintained about 40-45% or more. That data is a bit stale, as I grabbed it poking around Steemsql a week or two ago.

If anyone has a convenient site up to watch SP percentages of top accounts I haven't found it yet.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Looks like it's out of date. Do you know who runs the site?

·
·
·
·
·
·

that's the most detailed site on steem blockchain. I don't remember having seen any that came that close to the level of information you see there.

I see it is a few months old. I figured out @heimindanger was the creator (he is doing dtube too). I just left him a comment.

·
·

The post declined rewards and was downvoted. It won't be hidden. Downvoting is not censorship because it does remove the content. In some ways it doesn't even make it harder to find.

Ned and Dan have been having a little hissy fit over this shit and Dan is pretending to be "the bigger man".

You would think someone with so much in the works for EOS wouldn't have time for petty squabbles but it is becoming clear that is not true.

Whatever Dan. Take your petty shit off the platform

·
·
·

I have also read most of the comment/post fight between @Dan and @Ned. But I found Ned with more childish behavior which is never a good reflection of anyone and someone who is CEO of steemit?lol. If dan was pretending to be a bigger man Ned has't left anything to take Dan down(at least on steemit). Seems like Ned comes to steemit only to comment or downvote on dan or EOS, otherwise he loves twitter more than anything lol.

·
·
·

I think you miss-understand the situation. Block One has made the choice to move to medium. It is strategic and there is nothing petty about it.

Oh and there is no question about who is the bigger man. Ned's behaviour has been ridiculous.

·
·
·
·

They are both ridiculous for representatives of a company.

I am not picking sides to say who is bigger. Im just saying they are both stupid right now. And posting on Steem that you wont be posting on Steem anymore (not the first time Dan has made such an announcement) is a bit silly also.

The whole situation is ridiculous.

·

This is clearly saying that Medium is a better place to have a blog on. The sad thing is that it is coming from its founder.
IMO, this is a big blow to steem!

·

I guess, internal agreements and peace. It's a good thing.

So you're taking your decentralized operating system token blog off a decentralized blog, and moving it to a centralized blogging platform... because that makes sense... ... ...

·

because they r getting downvoted

·
·

Are you saying this because they don't make money on their posts, if that's why you are saying this, they do that on purpose mate, so not to take away from the rewards pool you do realize that correct?

EOS is being created by the same guy who created Steemit, so he's not accepting payment for his posts.

·
·
·

Ned was downvoting stuff about EOS that Dan was posting. They have some kind of problem with eachother that is not known. Taking EOS off of here is due to that from my understanding.

If you noticed @dan has been powering down his steem and either storing it somewhere else or leaving this platform completely. I suspect it was due to the disagreement between him and Ned.

I am aware about he doesn't enable payouts on the posts about EOS.

Also, you really shouldn't be self upvoting your comments like that. Some whales are going to notice you at some point and start zeroing you out until you stop. This happened to me because I was doing the same thing 8 months ago. It is only a matter of time, there are self upvote tools that show people who do it and they regularly get zeroed out by whales.

·
·
·
·

Really, why does Steemit allow you to up-vote yourself then, why not just get rid of it?

Oh, and I really did not know that about Dan and Ned, which is a real shame actually. It's not good for Ned either, because Dan could easily create a Steemit competitor on the EOS blockchain.

Anyway, about the self up-voting thing, if they don't like it, they need to have the witnesses remove it. Also, I take Steemit 1 day at a time. If I get attacked by whales unfairly, I will leave and never look back.

A life lived in fear, is no life at all.

·
·
·
·
·

It's not possible to stop self-voting because Steem has no account/identity constraints except stake. A block on self voting could be avoided by creating one posting account and another voting account.

There's nothing wrong with self-upvotes as long as the content merits the upvote. Voting should ideally be based on the value of the content, not bias for or against the person who posted it.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Too true, especially the part where you mentioned people having dual accounts, like how is anyone suppose to know whose account is whose, which is probably the reason why they just allowed self-up-voting from the start, to help prevent the multiple account issue.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I technically have dual accounts as well, though my other account is used for a different purpose.

·
·
·
·
·

Well I was defending your right to do as your please but you kind of sound like Dan now

"I'm taking my lunch and going home!"

·
·
·
·

But the bitter truth is that it's wrong for minnows but any whales can upvote their 2 words comment to hundreds of SBD and its fine nobody can talk about that.

·
·
·
·
·

It isn't right for anyone to upvote content that is spam/low effort and make lots of money. If the content is a well thought out comment with depth to it that adds to the conversation and you upvote it so that it rises to the top and people see it, something like that is perfectly fine in most people's eyes. Sometimes when you comment on something your response goes to the bottom because other people's comments are upvoted and yours isn't. Upvoting yourself in that regard to get attention because you want people to see what you add to the conversation and you think it is important they see it.

Now if you are just making comments all the time and upvoting them(regardless of if the content is good or not) then you are draining the rewards pool on spam comments. There isn't an unlimited number of Steem payouts. The rewards pool is what pays us all, if lots of people upvote themselves for spam comments eventually so many people will be doing that and taking the rewards away from the entire community. There are times when the rewards pool of Steem goes down by a lot due to bad actors, those bad actors are then found out by the whales and the whales will downvote bad actors so they don't get any rewards ever again.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Now if you are just making comments all the time and upvoting them(regardless of if the content is good or not) then you are draining the rewards pool on spam comments.

And who exactly is judge and jury on what is, or isn't a good comment... a slippery slope you walk indeed my friend.

·
·
·
·
·
·

This is kind of right but mostly wrong, IMO.

Minnow spam isn't "reward pool rape". Frankly that is just a buzzword people use now to mean they feel they deserve that money.

Spam causes a problem on the resources required to run the blockchain. It has very little to do with depleting the rewards. As a witness when I see users spamming bloat into the blockchain, I often make it harder for them to continue.

Minnows self voting, or whales, doesn't bother me, and probably many others, very much. But like I said before anyone has to right to do as they please with their power. Which includes downvote, upvote, or spam. Just because you have the right to do it doesn't mean I don't have the right to attack it.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

But like I said before anyone has to right to do as they please with their power. Which includes downvote, upvote, or spam.

That's another thing I believe the original anti-self-commentor failed to mention is that we only have so many votes per-day, which is part of the genius of Steemit, if there was no limit, then the whales would all be trillionaires!

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I think it's more of a community cultural issue. If we allow spamming to be profitable, the sort of user we'll attract are parasitic spammers. If we attract enough of those they'll bury quality content, waste network resources, and eventually drain rewards and drive investors away.

·
·
·
·
·
·

And why is it necessary to upvote them to 160+ when there's no comment with more than $0.2 upvote...it's very right because he is whale with many accounts? Everybody is hypocrite and they see reward pool rape from minnows because..?
Now I may get downvotes for sharing this SS I don't know. I have already lost fait with this platform anyway.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Did you even click the link in the screenshot you posted. The user is transisto and the explanation for the high upvote is in that link.

That particular user is fighting reward pool "rape" by taking rewards from the pool and giving them DIRECTLY to valuable authors and developers.

One of the best users on this platform, yet you use his actions in a screenshot like they are bad.

·
·
·
·
·

My thoughts exactly, because the only way people are going to stop doing this, is by removing it. I don't think they ever will though, because it is the number 1 incentive to buying more Steem, and without... I doubt people will even bother to buy it.

·
·
·
·

He can self upvote his comments all he wants. The problem is when you do it to a ton of comments that don't add much value.

But guess what? It is his Steem power to use as he wished.

·
·
·
·
·

It is his Steem power to use as he wished.

Fuckin' A right it is my friend, and in my opinion, if people couldn't up-vote their own shit, would anyone actually buy Steem?

I think not!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Now that could be a problem. If people only invest in order to vote to pay themselves rewards (which are funded through investment) then Steem will collapse as an elaborate Ponzi scheme. Steem is only sustainable if people value influence and having the power to shape what sort of content is rewarded in the community rather than just the power to harvest from the pool.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Wow, you obviously have not been paying attention, all the whales up-vote themselves, why else would people buy Steem?

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Was thinking of trading some of my either BTC or Eth for Steem, but that would only be for the purposes of powering up, so that I could make votes worth a dang on the posts of others.

But why can't somebody from EOS team just repost content here?
on Steemit you have great community!

·

You just planted 0.35 tree(s)!


Thanks to @flodner

We have planted already 6326.50 trees

I'll be doing that ... reposting from my personal site to here.

It's a wise decision, sadly.
EOS will get more reach on other platforms.

BUT
Don't mix up Steem with Steemit.
Steemit is loosing shares on the Steem blockchain.
There are competitors and one time they may handle censorship differently than Steemit.
The data is there, it's only on the apps that how they show (or censor) it.

What's wrong with Steemit? More transparent, better....

·

massive censorship and favoritism by whales.

·
·

Oh okay....

would be great to keep posting here on steemit.

It's real shame to just kind of peace out.

Clearly there's a massive community of supporters here on steemit.

strange.

Would be cool if all the different eos people had steemit blogs and updated their eos journey's....stories....here in the ever increasing massive community.

What's eos plan for a blogging platform like steemit? is that why the whole tippy toe away?

Maybe Medium is switching to EOS?

·

Definitely worth considering. EOS got the clap maybe?

·

Nice thinking :).
There's some good content on Medium, for sure.
Curious to see if you're right. If so, many others will follow I guess.

Thinking about a site like stackoverflow. Ideal case for content rewards, no? Being rewarded for answering questions...
(of course ... again.. what is the actual 'value' of those currencies... )

·
·

Lots of bad content on medium too. Honestly there's lots more bad than good.

·
·
·

I ask one more time.What is "bad"? Subjective!

@eosio I think it is a good idea to move on but the other hand not to leave steemit just like. anyway i know they have a better plan ahead. good luck.

·

Happy valentine day for you @hr1
Love full @hr1

Very sad :(
Thanks you support by @hr1

Thanks

·

I agree with you @hr1

Dan has said many times that the "power" of a decentralized platform is that if the community heads a different way, or the platform becomes too centralized, then anyone can create a new platform of like mind users. I believe Dan intends to prove this by "ditching" steem and creating a new, more decentralized platform, on EOS. Screw you Ned!

·

This is a childish fight. And you picking your sides with "screw you ned" fits right into it. While posting from SteemIt. Hypocrite

Hello, please tell me, there is already a wallet for EOS? or can keep coins only on the exchange?

i will keep an eye on medium for updates to eosio

Good post,thank for sharing

You'll be sorely missed, but I cannot blame you for the move whatsoever. Keep cutting the bleeding edge!

We're all rooting for EOS and I'll personally repost the future Medium articles while denying payout (unless you all request that I not do so) so my ~3000 followers here will not miss out.

See you all on Medium!

Man this is unfortunate to see happen. I really enjoy steemit as a platform but some recent things are highlighting some issue for me. Ned abusing power was just plain wrong. Also another controversial opinion I might have is others abusing power with the flagging and down voting of certain users on the site because they are making too many posts and earning too much or they are getting attacked because people just don't like them. I know there will be a better social platform developed soon on EOS and I am confident that this new one will find a to solve some of the issues plaguing this site and community. I look forward to open discussion and not censored discussion.

·

Do people flip out so much over downvotes on Reddit? Why are people on Steem acting like you kick their dog if you downvote them?

YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO POST PAYOUTS UNTIL THEY ACTUALLY PAYOUT.

When someone downvotes you they are using the system as intended. Quit feeling entitled to what you haven't earned and downvotes won't upset you as much.

·
·

It's simple theory people tend to care more when there's money involved, and they might have invested some of their fiat money as well and these whales think they are the only ones who invested money on steem and others are just earning for free from their money.
And recently I have learned that most of the witness tend to support them on whatever they say or do because they want that hight power witness vote. Isn't it true?

·
·
·

Your entire comment is filled with assumptions, generalizations, and heresay.

As a witness, I enjoy the whale votes but I will not conform to their desires to get their votes. I have had to prove that several times.

Everyone is investing money in one way or another, whether it is cash or time its all valuable. Money is involved, but it is not earned until the post pays out. And when the post pays out, no one can downvote it. People need to learn the system better and realize the "money" isnt real until it pays out.

Everyone has a stake in this game. The larger your stake is the more power you have. That is just simple economics.

·
·
·
·

Everyone is investing money in one way or another, whether it is cash or time its all valuable.

Yes I wanted to tell the same thing, everybody has some contribution and investment on steem whether it's money or time or something else.
I don't blame you,you must have missed that thread, but I have seen a fight between a well known witness and a random blogger(older), well I didn't know all the history behind that fight but the User(witness) was shouting at blogger telling that he didn't have any real investment and all of his SP are just earning..bla bla in conclusion he wanted to tell the blogger that he had no contribution to the platform but profits .....

Bummer. I hate to see you go. I'm sure you have your reasons, but I'll be sticking with Steemit and I'll miss your posts.

Sounds good, and thanks for the update. It's obvious Steemit is in need of serious reform, and the future of STEEM is starting to look darker. I'm certainly not in a hurry to acquire any more of it.

I will certainly follow all of your updates on medium. Thanks for the update. EOS is going to crush it.

Now I have a feeling that we will see a better and more decentralized steemit-like platform on EOS very soon.!!

I hope you continue post in steemit.
Don't lose your auditory here :)
So keep growing :)

A little disconcerting that the originator of Steem is pulling his other project's blog off the Steem blockchain. Hopefully it's just for conflict of interest reasons? You know, since EOS is a potential competitor to Steem?

Amazing post. Thank for sharing

i have a question why their is a line on you upvote

Thanks for the update! All the best, EOS team!

So sad to see this huge retroversion. Medium is not that convenient. I hope the new competitor of steem on EOS will be built soon.

Wow.. Too many dramas I suppose, so it's probably wise for them to go to another platform. Keep us updated @dan @bytemaster! Can't wait for EOS, great things are coming.

This is awesome will be following your medium, @eosio do you plan to forward the articles in someway through steemit? Either way your team is great and i’m Stoked to have more info to eat up! Ciao. Much love!

Good work,good post.

amazing post its my first time i am here on your post and found some serious information and u got a neww follower!

Good work,very nic post.

well i think its good

Best of luck to your team and the future of EOS will be fun to watch.

Competition is good for everyone. I'm looking forward to see how the two platforms improve each other.

but ... but.... but @dan you are the father of steem.... why abandon your child ? 💔💔💔

Is there any other way to sign up for medium without having to use a google or facebook sign in ? Does anybody know?

I hate to see that we'll no longer be the primary place for new postings. I wish you all the best...

thank you!큔스파크리사이즈.gif

Hi, I'm new to Steemit, and I just found this post that I just posted https://medium.com
I find it interesting, I'm reading the publication
Daniel Larimer to understand how it is.
If you could clarify my doubt, I would appreciate it.
