Yesterday @soyrosa asked me what I'm going to do moving forward.
One of the things I'm going to do is re-evaluate everything about this blockchain.
The reason I feel I can do this now is because I'm not afraid anymore.
This blockchain is either going to make it and succeed big time or it's going to shit.
There is no middle ground.
I have simply been walking around with Rose-tinted glasses for too long spouting the gospel of SMT's based on promises.
I had a huge personal reality check.
I am done with hearing what's going to come out, how great things and people are and all that.
I'm going to judge on what people do right now and their actions and results to improve this chain when they happen, not before.
Starting with Steem inc.
My confidence in them is at rock bottom. It will have to be rebuild from scratch.
Yesterday a first attempt to restore the confidence was made when they released this post:
from the post:
Steemit Inc.’s top priority is dramatically lowering the cost of running a Steem node. By routing these API calls to Hivemind, we greatly decrease the amount of resources our full nodes use.*
Right now it's just talk. It can't be evaluated until it's implemented. When it works and does as advertised. Fantastic, a little confidence restored. And I'm hoping to see a lot more of that.
Other things I'm going to evaluate in upcoming weeks/months is witnesses. Who really does what. Who is an asset to the blockchain, who is a taker and who deserves to be higher on the list.
I talk about it more in my vlog.
I am part of witness @blockbrothers.
