I'm in the eastern united states, and steemit doesn't really load for me. I mean, it loads, but can't load my followers, or past posts, and I don't know if this post will make it through either. I saw somewhere that steemit.com had been being ddos'd?
Is that right?
- blockchain api unable to keep up with site demands
- Something broken on the cloud side of things
Or a combination. My money is on a combination of the first two on that list there. Well, more like: DDOS causing blockchain api unable to keep up with site demands.
So I was going to make a post with no photo, but then this happened:
My bet is still DDOS = blockchain API can't keep up with total traffic.
It's interesting, though, and it supports the idea of forking steem. More distributed social media is better distributed social media!
