Time To Relax: @dan Is NOT Destroying STEEM And Bitshares

in steem •  3 months ago

A little more than a week ago, I saw an interview with @dan. In that interview, he mentioned how one of the things he was most proud of was that STEEM was providing a middle class lifestyle for so many Africans.

We all know that @dan was busy creating EOS that he had little time for anything else. Or did he?

It actually appears that @dan was here all along. Of course, he created a ton of controversy with his Bitshares 3.0 and STEEM 2.0 comment.

This sent many into a frenzy that @dan was going to destroy both platforms.

As it turns out, nothing could be further from the truth. For the past few months, @dan was moonlighting from his day job as the developer behind EOS. In his spare time, he started @steemjet.

What is @steemjet?

Here is how one post described it:

IN SIMPLE TERMS: STEEMJET IS A GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF TALENTED SUPERSTARS PRESENT ON THE STEEM BLOCKCHAIN THAT ARE WORKING TOGETHER AS A TEAM CALLED THE STEEMJET SPACE FORCE WHOSE AIM IS TO PROMOTE STEEM IN ORDER FOR IT TO ACHIEVE IT'S GOAL OF GLOBAL STEEM ADOPTION.
THE STEEMJETTERS ARE SUPERSTARS WHO HAVE REALIZED WHAT STEEM CAN DO FOR THEM AND ARE OF COURSE PROMOTING STEEM

Another post listed the mission statement:

The initiative is an instrument of positive change in our family, work, community, and here on this platform. We will utilize all of the talents that God has given us and will participate positively in your life with energy, purpose and gratitude.

The one behind @steemjet was @dimimp aka @dan.

This came in a post he put up yesterday.

For those still wondering what is going on here, SURPRIZE! Yes, I am the creator of DPOS, Dan Larimer, bytemaster, @dan, @dantheman, @dimimp, and of course, @god.

I suggest everyone read the entire post:

https://steemit.com/steem/@god/god-is-now-back-on-steem

Yet here is the crux of the matter.

@dan just created the world's first automated charity funded from the blockchain.

Congratulations, you have become the world’s first (automatic) Blockchain Charity that runs exclusively upon donated delegated Steem Power. Steem did not self-distribute as planned so I pumped it up with anabolic Steem Powered steroids to automate the task of global SBD distribution.

Later he goes on to say:

Enjoy your eternal financial annuity my friends!

So let me ask you, does this sound like a situation where @dan wants to destroy what he spent the last 6 months creating? Over that time, he worked out a program that gives Steemians in one of the poorer nations in the world money on a daily basis from this blockchain and now he is going to destroy it by obliterating STEEM? I find that highly illogical.

The fact that he believes he gave them an annuity means he knows it will keep feeding them STEEM, which will have value, forever.

So what is it with STEEM 2.0 and Bitshares 3.0?

I think this provides some insight.

Steem was designed to globally distribute itself quickly, automatically, and legally. But our natural survival instincts cause us to collude and self-vote.

@dan wants to see a system where token distribution spread throughout the world. He is basically addressing the fact that a few hands hold most of the STEEM tokens. Hence he is using the @steemjet as a model to follow moving forward.

Bitshares 3.0 is required for him to have STEEM 2.0. My feeling is this is completely about interoperability. @dan is not going to look to divide STEEM or Bitshares. Instead, he is seeking to unite.

@stan used the term "Bitshares 3.0" when mentioning the BENCH project. It stands to reason, this was not a genetic alignment between the Larimers. Somewhere along the way, the term came up between the two of them.

So what is Bitshares 3.0? It is a chain that will integrate with EOS thus allowing tokens from other blockchains (like STEEM) to be wrapped in a smart contract. This enables one to operate on a different blockchain while having the appearance of being on the original one. All this is possible because of the possibility for swaps on Bitshares.

In short, we could be looking at the creation of true interoperability between blockchains.

I think it is evident that @dan wants to see STEEM tokens spreading throughout the entire world at a rapid pace. At present, STEEM does not appear to have fulfilled his vision. Hence, is he working at creating something that does. It does not mean he is out to destroy STEEM or anything else he created. Instead, he is going to build something that he believes will better attain the end he is looking for.

This only makes sense. @dan has some big ideas and looks at things on a societal level. He is out to provide systems that alter the makeup of human life. He is also a developer. Hence, until he reaches the end he envisions, he will keep building.

And all that he created before will help to arrive at this end.

If Dan isn't trying to destroy Steem, then why did he flag this post? Along with that, he didn't leave a comment for clarification. This is getting crazy...

Things that make you go hmmmmmm!?

I’m so happy to hear that @dan is the man behind SteemJet project!

I’m speechless because future of Steem looking so great.

  1. EOS on the rise
  2. @dan still involved with Steem

These were my exact thoughts when I saw that @god post yesterday. Same thoughts, but with much better words, so thank you.

I do believe Steemjet is Dan's creation. The originating accounts go right back to the beginning of Steem itself, and are huge whale accounts. Furthermore, if it isn't Dan, Dan would just deny it, so this would be 6 months of effort and huge giveaways of funds, for the whole thing to be discredited by one simple statement from Dan. No, this is Dan.

It does suggest Dan has not been beavering over his computer creating Steemit 2.0 24/7, as the creation of Steemjet has been a huge hands-on enterprise!

And like @taskmaster4450 says, you don't spend all your time giving an asset away to people if you intend to destroy that asset. Steem is almost certainly safe from Dan (though there are other competitors out there who are less friendly), and interoperability between platforms would especially be wonderful for Steemians. :)

Proud to be one of your employee @dan @dimimp @god
I can't have words to completely thank you
I proud on my self and proud on you.

·
·

Lol Hilarious!

It's a pleasure to meet you, Sir. I admire your work very much. :)

My response is, either:-

(1) in the spirit of British pantomime: "Oh yes it is!" Then you say "Oh no it isn't," Then I say "Oh yes it is." And you say "Oh no, it isn't." And all the kids laugh;

Or,

(2) in the spirit of our dear departed, former Prime minister, Winston Churchill:

"Never in the field of human charity has so much been owed by so many to someone so dumb!"

Lol. Baffled as ever. Still very pleased to meet you, Sir! :D

·
·
·

Lol
Don't get twisted

"Not me" is not a complete denial but could be a disagreement to the fact that you said:

I do believe Steemjet is Dan's creation.

Well
He didn't create it. He funded it

·
·

HEY, I told anybody that would listen it's not you. Thank @god !
LOL
cheers bro

·
·
·

You were right. Dan would not deny it was him if it was him.

Because if it had been him, it would make no sense to say it's me, then take it back. You either do, or do not want, your charity to be known.

The person who created Steemjet discredits the project by claiming it was Dan, and getting all those people in Nigeria excited about it being Dan. The truth is, it doesn't matter. The project has helped so many people that the person is a hero regardless. Unnecessary. :(

·
·

@dan can you please clarify what wasn’t you?

I've been trying to understand the same time, how @dan is destroying STEEM?

He has practically promote it countless times especially via Steemjet.

I don't understand why people have negative opinions about him on steemit especially the big guns. Why?

Well, you have done justice to the rumours @taskmaster4450!

Gracias!

·

Some just have to be negative and feed off spreading it.

I am sure @dan is far from an angel but he does seem to be helping out a great many people. I believe his heart is in the right place even if he is subject to mistakes (as we all are) from time to time.

·
·

Exactly. I received delegated steem power from Steemjet and this has greatly improved everything for me here.

I can't thank @dimimp enough. Humanity is the only thing I really cherish about the man!

·
·
·

Same here
We can't thank completely to @dimimp

Resteemed b/c @dan flagged you and not @god.


p.s. Since @dan is on my BLACKLIST ... I healed all the damage done to this blog.

Not really sure that those accounts are under @dan, do we have any proof yet? I read it yesterday and the majority of the people were pretty overwhelmed.

·

yeah..that god post seemed pretty out there... is it really @dan ?

·
·

I think it's probably someone who's just out to mess with people's minds. One way to proove it would be a resteem from @dan himself, or if he outrightly comes out and admits it. For now anything goes.

·
·

I couldn't follow most of the @god 's post as it reference to things I am not familiar with , this posts kind of clarified it and it seems like @dan is the real MVP around here !!

·
·

Or you could just follow the SP that was delegated and see which accounts it came from.

It came out of a large account, was it someone else who started that?

·
·
·

I am not sure man, if you already know please tell me
:)

@god should perform a miracle as an #introduction post.

·

I'd take bitcoin at $100000 over that


In life I got no cares
Load'n up on bit'shares
Dan comm'n out like a cannon
no fear, nothing bad he's plan'n
Your crypto's not in danger
So invest in some coin game changer

Just a question. Did you notice your post is downvoted by @dan ?

·

Yeah I noticed that...I also didnt see a downvote on the @god article.

Very interesting.

·
·

Could be because he disagreed to some of the statements you posted but does not disagree to the one @god posted.

@dan did not create steemjet a man called @dimimp who said he created @god, @dan, @dantheman asked for new ideas and @deandaniel my friend gave his and it was accepted then @dimimp funded the initiative to promote steem

Thank you for sharing this important news. Good luck to you and Love.

Спасибо, что поделились этими важными новостями. Удачи Вам и Любви.

THE STEEMJETTERS ARE SUPERSTARS WHO HAVE REALIZED WHAT STEEM CAN DO FOR THEM AND ARE OF COURSE PROMOTING STEEM

Hi @taskmaster4450! Good, everyone can settle down now. So do you think this endeavor will be enough for Steemit to finally become mainstream?

Dont know about Eos, but Bitshares and Steem are hands down 2 greatest platforms that i ever used!
The first time i saw a coin that has real world value and its being used, that makes me think long term on their value.
Not to mention the have the most powerful blockchain in the industry capable of dealing record numbers of transactions.

·

Give EOS some time and I surmise it will be right there as one of the greatest platforms.

If @dan kills Steem it means he made a clone so superior that it actually enforces proof of brain. Who wouldn't want that?

bitshares was my best favorite coin. but it was delisted from bittrex. then Binance add bts. and I am a steem lover. great coin for investment

·

bitshares, bittrex.... did you happen to stumble into bitconnect?

·
·

bitconnent is scam. just money rotation. but bitshares have a project.

·
·
·

dude I was just being sarcastic, already knew that project blew up months ago. But seriously why pick bitshares over a more credible project like litecoin?

I just want to know why bittex delisted this coin. nothing more dude

·
·
·
·

lol, good riddance. That coin can go to the ICO graveyard along with mud coin, fud coin, and it was a total dud coin. Invest in something respectable like Litecoin that has mainstream acceptance and institutional backing.

·
·
·
·
·
·

you are litecoin promoter

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

not exactly.... I personally own a ton of it, but I don't get paid by anyone to talk positively about it. I don't work for a crypto exchange or promotion group, just a independent investor getting his voice out there. (I don't only invest in Litecoin, I own other ones like Etherium but I brought up Liteocin because it's my favorite).

·

Steem is also amazing it can give a nice passive income while you are waiting for it to moon :)

·
·

yes right. since January Market is in bearish mood

Hopefully this is good news for steemit. This is the first I have heard of steemjet. Thanks for the info. Also, thanks for the minnowuprising movement. Maybe it will help me grow into a real minnow.

Steem is turning into a soap opera...
First @god says he is @dan, then @taskmaster4450 makes this post and gets downvoted by @dan, @dan says in the comments that it's not him... but instead of downvoting @god's post which is misinformation and actually impersonating as someone he doesn't - major clifhanger in the plotline!
Now i'm here, staring at the screen waiting for the next episode of this soap opera that it's probably going to go on for days, already have my popcorn you can go guys... turn episode 2 season 1 of "God vs Dan: The man behind the mask" on

I don't understand why @dan would still be involved in STEEM when he clearly has his hands full with EOS and doesn't seem like the kind of guy that would be working on a product for a company he used to work for.

EOS raised $4 billion in its uncapped ICO, it has the funds to do pretty much whatever it wants, what would be the incentive for Dan to fund efforts on the STEEM blockchain when he quit the company to start another which has more hype and development focus surrounding it?

The only way I can foresee Dan coming back into the fray is if he is paid to do so because I don't think EOS investors and Block.One would be happy about Dan spending his time working on another blockchain project. Maybe those recent large-scale transfers from @ned are involved in this, but I highly doubt it.

Given Dan flagged this post, I can only see this as Dan saying that he isn't behind those accounts and isn't working on any of those initiatives. But who knows really, nobody knows what Dan is up to and we can only speculate. I think it's wishful thinking to think he is back in a development capacity.

I find this whole situation confusing and perplexing, I don't know what to think.

I was mindblown yesterday when I found out about @dan and steemjet.

Got so lost somewhere between the article and the comment section haha. Dan popping in really threw me off. Who knows!?
