RE: I Support Forking Out Steemit
It will not work because Steemit Inc has started transferring Steem to exchanges. Besides, if you fork out Steemit's stake, the next largest account is freedom. Who controls that account? This fork would benefit freedom because it will control the witnesses. It already does.
Besides, what about all those closely associated circles and early adopter accounts who benefited from upvotes and delegations?
This centralization of power in the hands of the few is on every blockchain, I'm afraid. That's one of the benefits of being an early adopter or a creator.
