4th February 2020

After years of watching from the sidelines I start buying Steem with a view to powering up an account and begin operating on the Steem blockchain.

14th February 2020

The Tron Foundation announces it has purchased Steemit Inc. Undeterred I continue my Steem stacking.

29th February 2020

I publish my introductory post on Steemit and officially start my Steemit journey.

2nd March 2020

Justin Sun attempts a hostile takeover of the Steem blockchain, which fails.

3rd March 2020

Stalemate between genuine Steem witnesses and Justin Sun's sock puppet witnesses ensues.

17th March 2020

Genuine Steem witnesses along with former Steem developers announce fork to a new chain called HIVE.

I joined Steemit at the perfect time! Right? Now, the question is should I stay with Steemit or focus my efforts on HIVE? Or be a slut and work both platforms?


P.S Here's the video to a great song by The Clash I thought I would include as the song's title happens to be the same as the one for this post. Enjoy!



Do you know where I can find one of these? No? Then let me help you with that.


Be a slut, eventually one of the chains will make an honest slag of you.

Ah ha ha ha ha ha! I shall do just that. Have you been tinkering around with Tipu again on my posts?

Moved to the Hive platform.

Lol! I think I prefer slut!

I note the frequent use of 'looking for adventure' as well.

go where your heart takes you. Nothing wrong with starting out watching both, posting on which ever one calls to your heart or both and seeing what develops. IMO, the current status quo is not acceptable. If that doesn't change, that will be the deal breaker. Your mileage may vary.

Thanks @shadowspub and yes I shall be watching both chains very carefully. I can not deny though that I am very excited for the new chain, it's a risky strategy but one that could pay off nicely.
