All we want as investors in Steem, both finacial and time/effort wise, is a clear non-poetic response to why you have been powering down in a mostly down market. Can't you at least create some hype behind your power down? There is green everywhere in crypto but with Steem. It seems investors might be hesitant to buy with our CEO powering down for no real clear reason. Would you recommend for people to buy Steem as your powering down? What is up duder? @ned

I'm more of a Nitrous Oxide kinda guy

Steemit sucks and all you have done is recreate America's Crony Capitalist Oligarchy( not to be confused with Free Market Capitalism). Bots have replaced personal interaction and your balance dictates the weight of your voice, rather than one person one equal voice. Steemit will become a sharing platform of original content created elsewhere, because it is not truly user friendly, it doesn't give back power to the people, the search function sucks, content has a very short earning lifespan, most content is junk, the platform has minimal features AND IS NOT DECENTRALIZED. I SUPPORT THE IDEALS OF DAN LARIMER, BUT YOU ARE A CROOK, @ned.

I see a huge amount of users leaving the platform for platforms, which do not pay them. This only makes sense if Steemit sucks and is short on Social in Social Media.

I could go on, but this will suffice. Go ahead and flag this if you like...I am powering down anyway😜

Did you even read the SMT paper?

My ideals will prevail.

Pursuing Opportunity for all who will contribute from their passions.

We can do this with One person, one vote, as well as with many competing Proof of Brain tokens of various emissions mechanics. And 1P1V is possible. As I discuss in the SMT paper.

I did not succeed in creating a balanced system, nor one of 1P1V, the first time, but now I will.

I applaud your admission and hope you create something better. I am not versed in SMT's, but know that whitepapers seem to be whitewashed. Your claims can only be proven once such a system is in place.

Until then, I will not add value to Steemit.

Hey @ned,

I have asked multiple STINC members bunch of times , is there a publicly announced timeline for SMT milestone ?

I believe in what you have to say about the vision but please ground this in tangible SMT milestone timeline we should expect.

Last time I saw an official response it was @andrarchy mentioning that you guys are working on a plan for the plan.It shouldn't be this difficult to announce milestone timelines , maybe you guys have already announced it but I have not seen them anywhere on the official blogs.

Yes there is, also available to track smt & hf20 progress.

@ned, I just read the SMT whitepaper and it mentions nothing about how the blocks are validated. Does this mean the Witness System will still be used? Yes, then SMT's are NOT decentralized and Steemit will still suck!

Seems like another scam...

Sounds good, great to hear updates from our CEO! We are doing our part some of us very passionate about Steemit and helping in many ways we can from telling strangers about it, sharing on social media and educating new members how to get proper attention and support! Thanks for a great system now wish me luck finding a little whale support in our fight to bring us more attention from other platforms, engagement and retention.
