Steemit / Tron Announcement

We have heard and understand that many people in the Splinterlands community have concerns about how the recent announcement that Justin Sun and Tron have bought Steemit will affect the game. If you haven't seen the announcement yet, you can find it here: https://medium.com/@TronFoundation/steemit-joining-tron-ecosystem-6ad66584d0b

We want to be very clear that this news will in no way jeopardize the continued operation or development of the Splinterlands product. As far as Splinterlands is concerned, the Steem blockchain is simply a decentralized database that we use to store the game data and manage user accounts and keys.

As a decentralized database, it can continue to run as long as people choose to run the software, and regardless of what Steemit or any other organization chooses to do. In a complete worst-case (and unrealistic) scenario where everyone stops running Steem blockchain nodes, Splinterlands can very easily continue to run its own nodes to keep the chain and the game running for as long as is needed.

That being said, we will be paying close attention to how apps like steemit.com and others are being migrated to the Tron blockchain and evaluate if a similar migration will make sense for Splinterlands in the future. Our goal is always to grow the game and the value it provides to players as much as possible, and if Justin Sun and Tron are interested in helping and supporting that goal then we will welcome the opportunity to work with them.


Stay tuned for more updates from the Splinterlands!

I am with Splinterlands- wherever they are- I am at! I love this game! Splinterlands to the MOON!!!!!!

As a member of the Splinterlands & Tron community I really appreciate this type of response from the team - keeping to its mission and values, but also not closing any doors that may lead to opportunity for all of us. The Tron community is massive, active, and eager to help crypto grow towards mass adoption. And, just like in the STEEM community, there are a lot of great and helpful people in the Tron community as well. I think all who give the Tron community a chance will be pleasantly surprised.

Completely agree..! #Steem and #Tron to the moon..!

I, for one, have no intention of shutting down my node. In an absolute emergency, I just need to work a few more hours.

But unless the data center burns down, I lose my job or I die. I should probably get to work on developing an API.

My only concern is having to change my keys... As long as you accept our keys in Splinterlands then I'm perfectly fine. So please try to keep the steem login and validation keys if you can @yabapmatt :) ...Thanks for the update!!!

Here here my friend. I’m with you on that one.

Nice measured response. There is still a lot unknown and Tron could bring a lot to the table.

Good job with the fast response to ease the concern of those who were concerned.

There can be good from this. Thanks for leaving door open on opportunity and closing it on uncertainty.

I think its better to work as a team steem blockchain developer and tron blockchain developer should work together as a one community if there is a lake of consensus its very damaging for both cryptocurrencies and blockchains

Well said. This should slow the knee jerk panic some are having. Can’t wait to see Tronians(?) join the game and expand the player base .

We already here 😉
Remember SEEDGerminator campaign?

Steemit Inc has little say on the blockchain. They could fork off, but if they fail it'll hurt :)

A comment I read is they hold enough Steem to vote in any Witnesses they want and potentially affect the functioning of the Steem blockchain.

As such any fork will have to get rid of their stake to be truly in independent which comes the issue of censorship.....

So if they do this actual witnesses should for steemit off and run a clean slate

Thanks for this wonderful update..

Splinterlands community will not let ruin your creation))

I guess you have a foot in the Tron camp already, but we will have to see what this means for Steem as a whole. Some serious investments that people will not want to lose. We do live in interesting times.

Hurry up and wait mode enabled. Can't wait to see what will happen either side of the chain.

Jason Sun seems to know what he's doing, overall, and with your assurance that the integrity of the game will remain intact, I'm all for this. As mentioned in my weekly series posts for the past month, I started buying Tron with the SP of the weekly payouts from my series posts FOR THIS VERY REASON. I believe that the decision Tron is making will GREATLY BOOST Steem into the future, Fingers crossed...

Thanks for making this post to share your thoughts and plans about this acquisition. I am relaxed and have full faith in you team. I am always at your side so no matter on what platform you move, as long as you accept my keys and validation then I will continue playing with you. I love @splinterlands

Thanks for sharing this nice update and I am relaxed after reading it. I am relaxed because you confirmed that you will stay here only and that's all for me. I am with you always. Thanks again

As a member of the Splinterlands i really appreciate quick response from SM team, so if it is going to happen my request is to provide keys as soon as possible to SM user like dtube, so it is very much important, but it is really good that we heard from SM concern, thank all team for this post to make clearance about new updates.

am glad to hear. a migration to Tron wdnt be so bad anyhow imho

What does Justin Sun need with a steemit or a token swap?

Enjoy the rally; I am extremely bearish if steem just falls into the shadows of Tron.
