Hive. Is this a scam?

in #hivelast year

21 days ago I was asked to remove my votes from Justin's sockpuppets accounts which I did. 17 days later they removed me from the Hive airdrop.

I even got a thank you note from one of their witnesses.

My only votes left was:


I voted for @blockbrothers because I respect @exyle who has been the most positive person here for all these years. That voice ruled me out of an airdrop.

Later, I was voted for, which is suspected one by their terms, but then again person behind that nick is real, not some sockpuppet. By the way, he was the only 0.22.5 witness on my list.

Incredibly, somehow managed to get in to Hive, so do @quochuy, @exyle and @blockbrothers.

To conclude. They have excluded me from an airdrop because of votes for witnesses who are all good enough to become Hive users.

Is this a scam? What do you think?

Thank you,

nice selfvote you scammer

I don't know if he is a scammer or not but what's wrong with a self vote? Maybe he upvoted for visibility. I think it isn't fair to randomly exclude users from the airdrop.

he bought steem to mainly selfupvote

this is considered as gaming the Proof of Brain Mechanics

now he cries that he didnt get HIVE?
HIVE is a new independent blockchain.
If you want hive, buy hive.

The Witnesses used a script to detect sockpuppet voters. If you think you are on the list by accident, please contact @therealwolf or @pharesim for instance. They are Witnesses too and they can help you.

For further understanding what happened i can suggest these Posts i made:

This one is in german, but i really recommend to read if you dont know what happened.

You can translate it with

If you still have problems because they arent active here anymore, please let me know and i try to find a solution for you.

I did try to contact them with these post here and on on the, they just don't care. Their goal is total control, not Ned's ninja-mined stake. There are plenty ninja miners between them.
Take a look at my votes. What do you think? Sockpuppets? It's more than obvious.

Just because you mention them here, doesnt mean they find your post. They get mentioned a hundret times a day if not more. I already told someone who can establish contact. @satren is a witness too. You can also try to reach out on the hive discord

Calling it a scam because you don't receive an airdrop is not correct. Remember why the community was forced to do the Hardfork in the first place! With this mindset you will have problems to get your Airdrop. Try to think about it and maybe you can change your mind and be more friendly and open minded. This could make the difference.

Just for the Record. Im not affiliated with Hive. Im just a User who wants to help.


Just create a proposal on Hive and explain your situation and motivations. Then the community can decide with their votes if you get an Airdrop or not.

The only exception at the moment are some users who are on the list because of errors.

Thank you for your time.

So my case is not an error? I'm for centralization? How do they know?

Hi there

I've been reading through many comments related to new hive chain and I've seen your comment too. Many users are being torn, however majority seem to be moving to new hive.

Are you fully moving there or will you stay on both chains? Just curious. I'm trying to figure out what to do myself.

I know that I will not get an airdrop. They don't care about investors. I am alone here, easy target. I bought all my STEEM with my money, unlike almost all of yours glorious witnesses which are for "decentralization". I'm not Justin's sockpuppet voter, it's more than obvious, but they simply don't care.

That's because your mindset and your expectations have an influence on the outcome. If you don't care to get it, its no wonder. It also looks like you don't want to get it because you don't like the witnesses at all. I don't force you to write the proposal and I don't write it for you then. I also can't make you believe that what you now say is simply wrong and that you could also like the witnesses.

The only thing i can do for you, is to tell you to write a friendly proposal and tell the community why you think you should get it. Sorry, but I cant help you anymore.

I will write a proposal. What can I do? No wonder I'm distrustful. I listened to you once and all I got was thank you note from @pfunk.

When we can get information on how to write that proposal and where.

Thank you.

Yes, I can understand you.

You can log in to your new account and then in the top right corner, click on your name and go down to proposals. There you can write something like a "Please give me my Airdrop" proposal. Include that you were misinformed and that you didn't really understand what was happening.

If you explain the situation I guess your chances are good that the community supports you. You can also write a Blogpost [in the new community] about your proposal. This ensures that it will be seen by more people.

Take your time for this and put some effort in and your chances will be good. I will follow you there too and support that. I hope it helps!

It's very unusual to meet a kind person here. Thank you.

Hey there, just dropping by to let you know that the HIVE team has published a list of users that were unfairly left out of the airdrop and you are one of them! So you will be getting the airdrop soon!
