Hi Everyone,

In the wake of my resignation, I wanted to update the Steemit community on my next steps.

Before I get to this, I wanted to thank you all. Thank you for supporting Steemit and thank you for supporting me. You have enabled me to work on the things I love and feel can make our world a better place, and although I'm not always good at communicating thanks, community support is the energy that keeps me going everyday so thank you very much.

I am excited to announce that I will be working on a new smart contract platform that I believe will offer fundamentally transformative capabilities within the blockchain industry

In line with my personal beliefs, this platform will be derived entirely from open source software and released under MIT license so that Steem and others can benefit from the work I do to advance free market solutions for securing life, liberty, and property.

In the coming weeks and months, I will be providing more details on these next steps and opportunities for community involvement.

Thank you all again. I love this community and look forward to continue blogging on this great platform that will forever be very important to me.

Dan

I believe in the idea that the more one tries, the better they get at it. So far your projects have demonstrated just that. I don't doubt your abilities. Don't worry about communication. No one can ever get it "right".

Thanks to you, Dan!


Wishing you all the best for your future endeavors, I would like to bring to your attention - a PETITION to declare cryptocurrencies legal in India and I believe it falls in line with your personal beliefs and principles you've held along so firmly . I'm certain that your participation will make a positive impact. You've inspired a lot of people and you've shown a different perspective. Congratulations! Looking forward to your future blogs and projects.


A thankful user of the platform you built. -isteemit

Could anyone help me understand if I breached any protocol or did anything wrong to be flagged? Thank you.

Yes, your unrelated petition comment was not in any way related to this blog post. You used this opportunity to spam people in the comments (whether or not it was a good cause doesn't matter).

Now if Dan was talking about India, or Petitioning the legality of it, perhaps your comment would have been fine. Instead, it's seen as spam is my guess.

(whether or not it was a good cause doesn't matter)

I thought that did matter. I would have personally messaged it in chat but I've been locked out since quite a while now. So, I thought that wouldn't be an issue as it is an important cause. Anyway, thanks for the pointer.

yes whales flag whales :| so no problem he voted on you and other downvoted to keep the whatever that is the reason if the experiment is still going, you have 2 big votes and 3 smaller ones to balance out the scale, so yeah anyone can vote for whatever reason whichever direction they want :D and give you whatever reason they please or not give you one :) good times, following since i like the message, I'm not related to India so I can't help and I don't like to sign petitions that I can't "enforce" I support only what I can direct.

Dear Dan,

I can feel that you're free again to be yourself! This is great news and I'm really happy for you! I'm glad you've decided to continue writing and participating on the platform you built. It would have been a pity for you not to enjoy it.

I need to thank you because what you built freed me from my slavery. It really did. As an explorer, I too am doing other things in the blockchain space, but to be honest, I would not have figured out all this stuff without that accidental stumbling upon Steemit one day last June.

I need to THANK YOU!

ps- Dan, I doubt you've even looked at my video I created ABOUT YOU, FOR YOU. I try not to hijack posts, but it's important that you at least watch it since I made it about you and your mind! I'll keep harassing you every day until you watch it. It hurts people like me when my art is created for someone who never bothers to even see what someone else has created for them. It's a lot like a gift that goes unopened! Watch the freaking video and I'll leave you alone, promise:

Dan I am looking forward to this. I am excited about Qtum although you do not agree with their approach, I would love to see yours. I do not think one prevailing over the other yet. But from my standpoint I would like to see how it works in both. Please do not stop blogging here. I would like to hear more about your smart contract approach. This time, promote the code, promote the code, promote the code.

Well, thank you for the great platform and writings. To be honest I've never felt more alive after discovering this platform and benefiting from it. It even feels overwhelming sometimes. Looking forward to your works and I hope the journey is a long and fruitful one.

Dan, I want to thank you for giving us the opportunity that Steemit has provided as well. Prior to steemit, I had very little online experience at all and knew nothing about cryptocurrency, blockchains, social media or blogging.

Not only has steemit already been a huge blessing to so many of us, but the finances that it has provided has changed a lot of Our Lives as well.

With my current goal to build a house for my family without going into debt, having an account valued at over $7,000 is a great step towards the $25,000 I hope to invest in materials.

Thank you once again and best wishes in the future.

·
64

Just a guess, but I suspect he's using it to help fund his "next big thing" he just told us about. Is that so hard to understand?

@dan said some things when he resigned like I won't be posting here anymore, that he has recanted or changed his mind about. In a perfect world we could count on every word as gold and immutable, but thank goodness it's not a "perfect" world, 'cuz we couldn't be in it if it was.

Nobody's perfect. We all say things from time to time we regret, that's just one of life's challenges to overcome. Don't hold dan back from creating the next great innovation by trying to impose expectations on what he should do with what he has earned.

I named a few places here in my tribute to you, where people MIGHT find you.

I am glad for this update Dan. I hope you are doing OK man.

·
65
  ·  5 months ago

I will be working on a new smart contract platform that I believe will offer fundamentally transformative capabilities within the blockchain industry

I suspect it will be a competitor to ethereum, that runs smarter, and leaner. It also probably will allow interopability between Bitshares, Steem, and other chains (that's where the "transformative capabilities" come into play)

Either way:

if Dan's working on it, it's gonna be good. (tm)

You are a great inspiration (I should've told you sooner) and the world needs ideas, thinkers are the ones who bring change and we need more of that not less.

Plus, personally I know that you helped me a lot, and for that I'm thankful.

If you ever need anything, I mean it, don't hesitate.

I wish you all the best Dan.

I am looking forward to keep reading your the ideas you put forward and see the projects you implement.

Thank you @dantheman! I consider myself fortunate for having a chance to try out this platform, and, for a while, to support it as a witness. It has been a great journey, although not without a lot of bumps. But bumps are part of life too, so what the heck :)

Needless to say I'm super curious about what you are working on and I would love to know more. If possible, even to contribute.

Best of luck!

A well-done job is always noticeable and everyone feels it. The efforts you have spent are not in vain, they help people in communication, finding new topics, friends, hobbies. Despite the difficulties and obstacles that have arisen, we are all moving forward. Thank you for your work for us.

69
  ·  5 months ago

The question I have is how much did you get paid off to stage such a stunt as your 'mysterious' resignation and deleted post that got the platform mentioned all over the crypto news blogs and drove up the price...

And your platform design was full of so many features that have seen the price drain everyone's steem power, almost every claim in the White Paper has been proven to be wrong. And now you upvote your own post to promote yourself. As a witness I have seen first hand the kind of 'quality' code that you write first hand in action and it's pretty unimpressive and the claims about it are pretty inflated.

You won't be missed by anyone here except the little gaggle of groupies who will suck up whatever stuff comes out of your... ahem. enough from me...

Dan, you are going to scam people again. This was so obvious. For example Tone Vays has exposed you many times before and said that Steemit is a scam which market cap will go to zero (getting there...) and you are going to take the money and run when time is ready and then start another scam. You are a disgrace to the crypto movement.
