To my witness supporters: Lets vote on hardfork 17steemCreated with Sketch.

in steem •  9 months ago

As you all know I need to make a decision whether or not to update my node and support hardfork of steem 0.17.0. I see that a lot of witnesses are making that decision themselves, but I always understood democracy as a process which empowers the voters and in that sense I can only serve a spokesman of my supporters.

If you are still not sure what the update is about, I explained in detailed what the new update “Simplicity” will bring to the table on this post: “Find out whats new on steemt 0.17.0”

If you vote for me I would like to hear your thoughts on these changes and ultimately I would like you to cast a vote whether you want me to update the witness or not, which I will be doing on Monday the 20th. I will keep a tally of the voting and will follow the outcome, my vote will count as 1 too and could be decisive if there is a tie.

Votes Against

I am preparing two nodes now, one with each version, if we decide not to upgrade but the hard fork goes through anyway (it obtains a clear majority of witnesses), I will update on Tuesday so that I don’t miss blocks.

In order to vote, you have to support me as a witness too, if you don’t I suggest you debate this hardfork over with the witnesses you do vote for.

I'm in favor of the hardfork. It's not perfect and I'm disappointed that linear rewards curve wasn't implemented, but I'm for changes. Staying the same doesn't seem to be working.....let's see how it goes and then adjust the things that don't work with HF17

·

I agree!.. thanks for your vote

·

I knew you were high quality (actually 4KHQ) from the very start! And your stuff on Medium is great too.

Wow, thanks @stellabelle...I am a big fan of your work so that means a lot to me :)

thanks for that! Sometimes on steemit, I am not sure how people actually feel......so that is great to hear. Is it perhaps that many of us feel relieved now? Dan is a very serious person, who doesn't appear to appreciate silly memes, comics and some of my more controversial videos......I feel a weird kind of relief now. Do you get this? I think a person's influence is something that is psychologically picked up on, like an emotion......

It is indeed very weird.. I have a great deal of respect for Dan as I honestly believe he is a genius, I have seen his work and he has created the fasted and most revolutionary cryptocurrencies I have seen: Bitshares and Steemit... and this is coming from a MAJOR cryptogeek so I am not just being a "fan boy" here.

HOWEVER, like all geniuses he is a bit socially awkward and likes to get stuff done his way. This of course created a lot of friction and friction is never good for businesses.

Surprisingly since he is gone price is booming and people seem to be very positive. I am not sure if the two are directly correlated tho... Maybe a big investor was waiting for dan's departure to invest heavily.... or maybe its dan pumping the price so he can sell his stash for millions and laugh at the other whales who hated on him and sold for cheap.

There could be many things happening here, but this is what makes crypto community great.. and steemit has one of the largest crypto community out there, so we are GREAT! lol

This is all of course, just my opinion.

@stellabelle, PLEASE read this. HF17 is a very dangerous step in the wrong direction and it is made plain in this post.HF17 Commentary

I'm in favor of it, we need to try out new things and these change, though obviously not perfect, are needed. As @clayop said in their piece, we can always roll back (should be able to anyway).

Also I just voted for you as witness, I like your attitude. 😊 👍

·

Thanks for that.

I'm in favor of the hardfork.

I am also in favour of the hardfork

·

Thanks, although to be fair to my supporters you would have to vote for my witness to be counted.

·
·

I'm for HD17, and will support as witnesses the ones who will vote for it.

·

This is exactly how it should be done, you should support witnesses that represent your views on your platform. At the same time witnesses should be expressing the views of people who vote for them.

I favor the hard fork.

·

Thanks for your opinion @sean-king, it seems most people do... please vote for me as a witness so I can count your vote.

·
·

Done. 👍

Amigo conta con mi apoyo, despues si queres me explicas bien como hago. Abzo!

·

@tincho!.. basicamente podes votar por mi witness como lo hiciste por cervantes, lo que hago acá es consultarle a las personas que me apoyan si desean que se haga el update el próximo martes o no. UN abrazo!

·
·

listo amigo, si llego te voto ya, si no en la noche. Che y despues me podes explicar lo del steemfund que creo que esta encabezado por vos, quiero entrar. El tema es q entiendo ingles y si lo escucho flor, pero leerlo me he dado cta que no existo! Disculpa q te joda pero bue, no me queda otra

·
·

Listo amigo, ya te vote! comparto tb! abzo!

I am in favor of the hardfork! Resteeming for more exposure.

I am in favour of the hardfork, hoping some well needed changes might just be enough to build Steemit :)

In favor for the hardcork here too and thanks for your commitment too this platform too! @chitty

I tend to be in favor of it and at this point plan on updating to HF17 this weekend.

I'm not to enthused about the 7 day pay out but let's see how it plays out. Otherwise, if we don't try, we don't learn.
