RE: I'm mourning for Steem | Will see you on the other side
I'm feeling it, too. I haven't been so consistent with posting anywhere until STEEM. I suppose the same could happen on HIVE, but it's not just an automatic thing. Maybe in a little while I'll feel better. :)
I really don't think we can trust Justin.
I think that's largely the point about all of this. We shouldn't have to trust him, or anyone else, for that matter, because no one person should have that much influence or ability to affect change. When they can't, it's less a matter of trust as it is the freedom to be more involved and more of an agent of your own destiny.
Without a major miracle, that doesn't happen on STEEM from Friday forward. Whatever is left of STEEM goes to TRON or goes away. Either thought is sad, but most of what truly makes STEEM, well, STEEM, will be on HIVE anyway, (and just for the record, whatever baggage and dirty laundry we've had here, we'll be taking with us to HIVE), and most likely, the rest of the folks will follow in short order. Where else is there to go where there's even a potential for the community that's been on STEEM where at least decentralization is being talked about, if not actually being achieved on different levels?
I'm sounding like a cheerleader for HIVE. I'm actually not. I have many of the same feelings as you. I think I'm just trying to cheer you up. :) Thanks for being one of those to hold on through thick and thin for the last two-plus years (right now it's seeming like longer). There aren't a lot of us left that came in together.
