RE: Reminder: Steem absolutely and completely violates GDPR and European privacy laws

in #steem6 years ago

Well this isn't very reassuring. Hope the witnesses get it together so they don't run into legality issues. I think when it comes to things on the blockchain though, it doesnt make sense to follow traditional ways of doing things. The blockchain is meant to be transparent, steem doesn't force you to use your real name or censor you in anyway, so I'm not quite sure how the issue should be handled.

  1. Privacy controls. Way back in mid-2016, confidentiality was actually top on the roadmap.
  2. Ways to remove illegal data; respond to appeals such as right-to-be-forgotten etc etc.

The above are challenging for a blockchain, but methods need to be invented to keep up with human rights laws.
