As I already wrote a couple of days ago, we're still in muddy waters with regard to the recent merger between Steemit Inc and TRON Foundation. We still don't know exactly what will happen. Don't know if STEEM will be swapped over to the TRON blockchain, or if there will be a pegged token somewhere in between, and that's not good. This uncertainty gives room to speculation, and speculation eventually gives way to fud, and from there it all spirals downwards.
I've seen this oh, so many times.
So, this would be the right time for clear heads and clear thinking. If we're keeping our community strong, then we can at least have a say in what will happen. But in order for that to happen, the stake must be used. In simpler, words, you have to vote for witnesses.
You have to use your stake, because that's what DPOS stands for: Delegated Proof of Stake, not Delegates Proof of Sleep.
So, just make sure you either vote for your favorite witness, or set a proxy for that (you can even use me as a proxy, if you agree with my witness votes).
Let's cover the basics, and the basics are pretty clear: as long as the stake of this blockchain is evenly distributed among trustworthy and reliable witnesses, we can avoid a stake attack. There might still be shit around getting ready to hit the fan, but at least we checked this.
