New Changes To Steem

in steem •  last year

I cannot claim HF19 is inspired, but it feels or seems better, like emancipation. Can we handle our new freedom? Whales and dolphins kept us accountable in a way. Now nobility structure gives way to more popular control.

Lets hope sybil-like self voting doesn't destroy authenticity. Circular upvoting plagues facebook, youtube and other places, where central authorities even use statistics to catch those tricking the system.

Was this natural evolution planned all along? This year has allowed personalities to emerge, such that this new distributed system is now more protected from false movements. Also, there is still an small upward curve to voting power, which continues to encourage using one account.

How are we going to prevent people from simply paying themselves? Well, we'll work on it.

How are we going to prevent people from simply paying themselves?

I think the site is designed to encourage that, up to a point.

But paying yourself does nothing to increase your Reputation number. In the long run, reputation is key.

good point

@treeleaves There is plenty of love to share and go around. Everybody gets one extra up vote from themselves but Hakuna Matata!

yeah, I've got no problem with that...

It's a really good point. Let's keep our eyes open. 👀

Not sure this is true: "Whales and dolphins kept us accountable in a way"
