A lot is happening on Steem blockchain at this moment. SteemDragon, as the earliest and one of the most active Steem communities in China, had long witnessed the progress of Steem. Although we never executed our rights to govern, we've been practicing our voting rights from the beginning.
As a group of early Steemit holders, we are astounded and concerned about recent incidents involving Steem blockchain. Some witnesses abused their power, disregarded the interests of the community, and went against the mission and spirit of Steem, which is why we have decided to step out of our comfort zone, turn ourselves from voter to witness in order to safeguard the peaceful maintenance as well as the interests of the community.
1. What is SteemDragon?
SteemDragon is a Steem community-based in China and has remained active on all major Chinese social media channels such as Jianshu, Baidu Tieba, Wechat groups, Tianya group, and Douban group since the founding of Steem blockchain. Steemdragon used these channels to promote Steem, providing well-written Chinese promotional articles and attracted many developers who aided the development of Steem DApps.
2. Why does SteemDragon want to become a witness?
- Participate in community governance on behalf of Steem users in China
- We possess the engineering talent that can be a help to Steem blockchain development
- As token holders, we are not content with the current ownership profile of Steem community, which is dominated by whale users. We must stand up and build a truly fair, democratic and decentralized content community for Steem.
3. Our requests
- Re-elect witnesses
Incumbent witnesses can no longer represent the interests of Steemit holders. Oligopolies have plagued the community, and we need re-election to select witnesses who can provide constructive feedback and bring about substantial growth for the community.
- Accept investment from TRON
The current Steem community is no longer the community we knew- It is declining and shrinking. Now it's the right time to accept aid from TRON. The American stock market has triggered the circuit breaker twice in 2020. Stock indexes around the world are plummeting. Bitcoin and the blockchain community are no exception. Everywhere you look, market cap is shrinking. Without the financial aid from TRON, we cannot promise that Steem will still be able to be there to witness the next Renaissance of the blockchain industry.
Meanwhile, we have to admit that TRON is far superior to Steem in terms of the scale of the ecosystem, and they have the ability to safeguard the interests of Steem users.
4. Our commitment
- SteemDragon will not use its tokens to freeze anyone's digital assets.
- SteemDragon will fully respect the will of the community. The interest of the community will be the prerequisite for any future decisions. We will not become the spokesperson of any oligarchs- the community will govern the network with reasonable measures.
- Any future dividend from Staking will be 100% distributed to our voters in the community.
- SteemDragon will be fully committed to the promotion of Steem and consider Steem a life-long cause to fight for.

What is your stance on censorship?
How will you deal with posts that may be unpopular with the Chinese Communist Party, for example anything to do with the origins and cover up of the SARS Covid-2 virus which emerged from Wuhan in China?
Story on CNN.
Hahahahaha. Who are you guys?
I knew Justin would start getting SRs in here from TRON.
I think Tom Cruise has a message for you.
Hahahahaha, what movie is this ???
As one of the top witnesses on Steem now- Can you tell me how you feel about these changes to the terms of service? Some open and honest communication would help during these trying times.
Do you agree with these changes? Were you consulted at all before they were changed? Do you really believe people need written permission to promote each other? Am I seriously not allowed to promote anything that isn't Steemit?
If you can't answer these questions that isn't a good look for the future of steem...
14.1. When accessing or using the Services, you agree that you will not commit any unlawful act, and that you are solely responsible for your conduct while using our Services. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you agree that you will not:
14.1.7. Use our services to promote third-party platforms or to promote each other without our written permission.
Amazing how "concerned" you suddenly are when most individuals on steemit who have engaged with these witnesses, regardless as to whether or not we actually like them and each other, understand their actions. I'd be more "concerned" about the dipshits breaking the chain and hemorrhaging money to control something that they don't care about or understand. This situation has brought out amazing co-operation between steem community members no matter how whoever wrote this is trying to spin it.
Please join us for a new Witness Forum so we can all work together for a better steem.
With governance interference from TRON, Binance, Huobi and Poloniex, we can promise that the current Steem community and dApp developers will make a mass exodus to a chain that's not overrun by authoritarian-controlled sock puppets. #Hive
You idiots!!! XD
He won't last long violating the ToS like that @ausbitbank. Unless the ToS is just an excuse for Justin to purge anyone he doesn't like!
You do realize that you are in violation of the new ToS? Or did you already get written permission to promote the use of Telegram or Steemconnect?
Also don't forget - you can't just go around promoting each other! You have to get WRITTEN permission!
