RE: I Support Forking Out Steemit
I think we should develop this idea and keep it as our nuclear option if steemit inc doesn't perform better in the very near future.
We will need a team on stand by ready to take over the blockchain development and a good selection of witnesses willing to run the forked code.
There are challenges as the FUD may damage value for both communities and then there are all the challenges around getting the new coin listed on exchanges etc.
None of these challenges are insurmountable.
But in summary, I think we should have the forked code ready to go as a form of insurance against any abuse by the largest stake holder that damages value of all the minority stakeholders.
