Hard Fork 23 Rising Sun - SOS! - Save Our Steem! 🆘
This may very well be our last fork opportunity to save our blockchain before the Rising Sun!
If our current witnesses are concerned about the survival of our chain, I ask you to carefull consider the following proposal in it's entirety. Suspect we may not have much time so sorry if this appears hurried along because it indeed was.
Pull Request Submitted: https://github.com/anthonyadavisii/steem/pull/2 (Updated to repo under our control)
Resolved all conflicts. Added 0_23.hf file. It's ready for testing: https://github.com/anthonyadavisii/steem
Requesting some savvy Steem developers to review and help address any compatibility issues that may exist in @jnordberg's previous proposal. Read the following for rationale...
This is a proactive proposal to prevent the Steemit Inc Stake to be leveraged to facilitate a hostile takeover with the express intent to collapse our chain to be assimilated into the Tron blockchain. The intent is implicitly stated in the following article. It doesn't seem ambiguous in it terms to be perfectly frank.
Capitalized for emphasis!
Together, TRON Foundation and Steemit Inc. will look to create further value for their users and to augment their advancements in decentralized technologies, including MOVING OLD STEEM TOKEN TO A NEW TRON BASED STEEM TOKEN, giveaways to the existing TRX users with the new TRON based STEEM token
I see this as the last ditch effort that the current witnesses may employ to preserve our blockchain. Since previous forks, I am not sure if the coding as @jnordberg originally implemented will still achieve the same end. With that in mind, I ask for my fellow Steem developers to please review and adjust accordingly.
I don't we want to wait for an AMA but rather we should act IMMEDIATELY! I understand some may have ethical concerns about this but urge you to consider the probable alternative we will face considering the text from Medium article. It is clear that the intention is to "dissolve" Steem
At a minimum, perhaps we can somehow disable witness voting and freeze the stake to afford our active and valuable community time to consider fair alternatives but, make no mistake, I don't assume we would be treated with the same decency. I want to point out the contradiction that was rightly pointed out my Luke.
Call me rash if you will but I personaly don't think we should give them the opportunity to deprecate our chain for guarantees that may or may not be delivered. (SMTs come to mind.)
If we are going to act, believe time to act is now before the Rising Sun.
