A new chapter...

in #steemit28 days ago

I wanted to take a moment to let the Steem community know that earlier this afternoon I made the decision to resign from my position as Blockchain Engineer at SteemIt, Inc. This decision has been difficult for me to say the least; I am going to take a little time to myself and collect my thoughts.

Until then,
Steve

Sort:  

Dang, another resignation. At this pace nobody will be left to develop anything in Steemit Inc. With the amateur github job TRON's people did, I doubt they have any future for their precious acquisition. Take care man, I hope to see you on the "other bright side" of the chain soon.

consider that the payout might not be the point...the goal might be a shutdown

There are quite a few gambling applications on the steem chain. Wouldn't be surprised if sun is trying to corner that market as that is just about all Tron is used for.

that is a good alternate consideration

If you ignore all the decentralized exchanges, streaming services like dLive, and BitTorrent I suppose

This is a landslide.. I wish you the very best gerbino

Why the hell are all of you making almost identical posts? All 3 members are saying the same shit: saying youre resigning, short posts with no explanation, and “collecting your thoughts”

Maybe because their employment contracts prevent them saying more.

Maybe because they have been through the same shit lately?

This

Dude that is exactly what I just said as well. It is very strange they all are saying the same thing. It almost seems like their accounts are TRON property. LOL

Very strange bro and I tried to message you on Partiko about all this earlier but it wasn't working.

Yeah, Partiko chat hasn't been working for a while. We can talk on IG

Yeah I doubt they resigned. Fired more likely

Not only this post, also the post of their thoughts for the last softfork. It’s easy, until they finish the process of resign, they are still under tron employer rules: probably including how not to reveal much in their posts etc.

Understood. Respect and good luck in the future, Steve.

are they under NDAs? if so, they should violate them

Could be all the CCP, tron division, allows them to say under NDAs.

The identical resignations thing is eerie.
What a disaster.
This place is finally fucked for the final time. Ugh :(

perhaps hacked

it could be a group decision... they're all angry/tired for the same thing, resign together, post the same thing and leave...

Maybe they have been forced out.

Doubtful. Blockchain devs like @gerbino and @vandenberg are like diamonds. Only a complete idiot would force them out.

Must have been a really rough day. But boy do I have a lot of respect for you guys💪.

Let's build a more amazing and more decentralized future together

Thanks man. Let’s do it! 😁

Good on you, brother. Never an easy decision to quit. I'm sure you'll land well.

Be well!

@gerbino,
I think now it's time to start working on our own community chain instead of Justin's shit. Hope to hear a good news from you soon!

Dear Steve,

You have all my respect and this hard decision is fully understandable given the shitstorm that happened today.

Much gratitude for the awesome work you did for the Steem blockchain and its community.
I hope we will be able to meet again.

Take a rest, enjoy life and your beloved.

Thanks for your contributions to Steem. Best wishes for your future.

Much respect @gerbino, thanks for everything you've worked on and I hope we still get to see SMT's on the chain with the community united.

Thank your for all your work

I wish you all the best and hope you stay part of the STEEM community!

It is strange that everyone's message looks very similar.

P.S. Never knew who you were despite being here since 2016.

Steve you have been a light for the Steem community, your talent and execution will always be remembered. I wish you the best and thank you for all your contributions.

Thank you for @gerbino for your effort and hardwork and I wish you the very best ahead.

thank you for the update and all of the work you did for the platform

I'm not sure if you even know me but I got everyone's back today. As angry as I am with all this, and disappointed as well... I still know who the good ones are.

Ahh fuck it. I don't know what to say. Good luck. Thanks for everything.

Look like all Steemit team has being resign.. I need to pack my bag and leave aswell.. Why i need to stay in here while all team members are leaving this place.. Steem will gonna be shitcoin for sure.

Just as I wrote to your colleague, enjoy as an unemployed person.
You have done a terrible job.

And you showed how small man you are by cashing out 180 dollars for 5 lines of text.

Band of pathetic losers...

the crypto world is disgusting. People are bribed ... robbed or even threatened with weapons ... this is a world where a lot of money can be made. and sometimes people do something you don't believe ...

But I know one thing ... that Justin stands for something good and has a precise plan ... I trust him ... he's one of the good ones in this scene ...

Justin ... hats off ...

you support globalism?

nooooo....but are you 100% sure what happened behind the door? Nope... we must relax... and wait what happened... but trust me... I m a dev in the Blockchain scene, too and what happened there is crazy.... you can't trust nobody...

You mean he didn't bribe Exchanges to use customers funds to power up accounts and then vote out the community voted witnesses to vote himself to the top?

Don't know what world you live in that this is something good.

yes, probably bribery, etc

Holy crap why are all these Steemit people resigning? Do they hate Tron and its owner, were they coerced into leaving, were they actually fired? Anyone have thoughts on this? I just found out about this like five minutes ago and it's weird to say the least.

Because Ned sold his shares and Steemit to Justin Sun of Tron foundations, then Justin attempted (criminally) to takeover the Steem Blockchain. But we are taking it back. Be sure to use your witness votes so we can reverse what he has done. Easiest way is to proxy all your votes to a trusted Steemian. I trust @naturalmedicine. Here is how and why to do it: https://steempeak.com/hive-120078/@naturalmedicine/update-from-the-nm-core-team-community-love-and-a-call-to-action

In work, people will resigned not because of the job but becuase of people attitude .

Bobs and vegana or GTFO

It's nice to know that many of you behind Steems development are of honorable character.

A whole block of support and sympathy will be with you from us, steem community. Let it be known to all Tron communities that we, the community of steem users, those that really cares for the technology and the promise of true decentralization and crypto opportunities, will continue to support your future adventures in our, and will always be, the steem blockchain.

No hard feelings at all toward you Steemit, Inc developers. All the best.

If the chain hard forks and a community-controlled sister chain is created, perhaps you guys can be paid through the SPS to finish testing the SMT protocol.

Thank you for all you have done. And for doing what you knew needed to be done today.

Ned royalty fcked the community and his ex-staff members. Real POS! Do you guys know where Ned is? Would love to provide some feedback...

Hope you manage to collect your thoughts and hear from you soon!

Let's be honest - didn't you all just get fired for freezing Justins voting rights? ^^

Steem has so much potential and has helped many peoples lives. What is going on?

You will go on to greater things mate. Take your time and do what's best for you.
A huge thank you for everything you've given me.
My sincerest best wishes

Thank you for the work you have done. Good luck, and sorry

Sorry it came to this, look forward to hearing of future endeavors.

Damn, what a sad day indeed. Can't believe all that I've seen today. However, massive respect. Your guys integrity is admirable. Thanks for all your hard work.

trustin justin

thank you for all your work Steve

Best of luck for your better Future.

Thank you for your great work @gerbino. I hope that you are still willing to proceed your work on the Steem Blockchain in the future in one or another form.
We are still strong and will succeed in bringing decentralized Web Applications to the masses!!!

Good luck to you and the rest of the team, if the goal of Sun's acquisition was to get a block chain development team, seems he may have been over confident in people willing to work for him.

Thank you for all that you do. I wish you well in all your future endeavours.

Thanks a lot for the hard work and enjoy your rest :)

Wishing you every success in future endevours.

Thanks for all the hard work, wishing you the best!

Thank you for the time invested, respect your decision, wishing you well in next venture hopefully meet up again soon. #steemsouthafrica

All the best and thank you for what you have done. This must be a very difficult time. My thoughts are with you and all in the former Steemit Inc team.

Sorry to see you go! Is there any way we can get some info on what is happening in there? Seems like it's all coming apart very quickly.

Damn dude. That is a huge lost for the community. I hope you move on to even better things. Good luck with whatever you do.

And remember .... you can always keep working on SMTs. #SPS. 😁

Thank you for all that you have done.

Thank you, @gerbino for you great job and all your devotion to developing Steem Blockchain! You will be always part of our Steem community! Hats off to you.

p.s. It was nice to listen to your speech at Steem Fest 4, in Bangkok. Hope to see you at Steem Fest 5, as well!

So who's still left at Steemit Inc. headquarters?

Just a couple of broken guitar strings and promises ....

The remnants of ned. Is the hair still there too?

and bubble gum

Another one resigned? So fast.

Thank you for all the work you did.
Best of luck!

Congrats for doing the right thing and for all your work here. I support you.

Thank you very much for all the hard work you've done for the platform.

Please, rest now and consider afterward to join in the efforts for the rebuilding of Steem platform with the real #steemcommunity. I am certain that day will come when you'll look back and be very proud of your work.

!BEER

Lots of respect for your decision, and thanks for your good work!

My respect mate!

Thank you for everything... Hope to hear from you on the other side.

Much Love ❤

Thanks for your support for being blockchain Engineer in Steemit, Inc all these while. But I'm sorry hear this....

Thank you for everything you have done for our blockchain and community. Stay strong.

Can we fork like Weku did?

If all the best people leave, who replaces? What's the future of Steemit like?

Only God knows...

This must've been a hard decision to take, I'm grateful you did, and I hope there comes a day where we can have a beer and share stories about what happened here. Hope to see you back on Steem after you've taken a rest - however Steem looks like by then. Where the community goes, Steem goes.

all the best ! a new chain without Delegates POS like the bitmessage or zeronet protocols?

its a good thinking bro .everybody need to enjoy their thoughts

Mad respect mate! Wishing you all the best with your next move! YOu've got mad skills any project would be lucky to have you

I appreciate all your hard work you did for our community and platform

Thank you for you hard work and dedication to the Steem Blockchain.

Thx for the hard work, I wish the chain could hire you somehow, maybe through SPS :)

Thanks for work...

Justin call TRON & BTT "Shit coin".... We can add to that list now

Damn. Crazy stuff.

Good luck with whatever you do. 💕

Steem(it) finally dead now? Was already looking 2 weeks ago when I first read about the TRON take-over and found not a single (officiall) posting about that. Sad!

Steemit Inc. may die, but Steem will Steem On!

Sad news for sure. May you come back later?

Congratulations @gerbino!

@gerbino We really appreciate your contribution to the Steemit Community May God reward you greatly.
But I seem not to understand why almost all the Blockchain Engineer at SteemIt, Inc. is resigning. I have been away for sometime now! so can someone intimate me on the happenings?

Because Ned sold his shares and Steemit to Justin Sun of Tron foundations, then Justin attempted (criminally) to takeover the Steem Blockchain. But we are taking it back. Be sure to use your witness votes so we can reverse what he has done. Easiest way is to proxy all your votes to a trusted Steemian. I trust @naturalmedicine.

All usa community at steemit did a very bad behave with asian community i am happy that all these witness has been removed by justin sun , at least justin sun always respect asians , Americans have very bad at ego and worst at behavior with poor community of steemit , look at me steem cleaner misbehave with me and slang me , ban me without giving any proof , Welcome Justin Take over steem it i support justin sun , all old witness were only greedy and did nothing to support steem prices , justin is very active tron admin and best developer team , i wish best of luck to justin sun. get lost all greedy whales of steemit and i warmly welcome justin @justinsunsteemit

Yeah because my TRON and BTT tokens are so well supported.... Just another "shit coin" not my words by Justin Sun
