Taking my lead from the CEO Ned!
One of my main gripes among many with regards stinc/steem/steemit.
Is the 13 weeks to power down, as it makes it impossible to use any stake here to make money on the outside markets.
Ned has powered down, ned has taken his tokens out. I know there is a very set mindset here as to holding or hodling (if you are pissed) though how many of you are angry at yourself for not selling some of your stake at $12 plus SBD or $8 was it? Steem.
If it was an even playing field on here 1 hour power downs would be a perfect solution (in my mind anyway) so we could play the outside market, possibly win big and move back in more steem or SBD than we took out, win win situation for stinc/steem and everyone else. By us then buying more steem or sbd to put in, would this not increase the value of both tokens?.......
I am powering down and never going to stop from now on, I see no reason why ned should be off playing the market with his new .io friends whilst we are all left as the bag holders and gatekeepers, whats good for the goose and all that jazz.
I was once going to invest heavily in here and the main things that stopped me are the above, plus the agree with me as I have a bigger wallet than you mentality, that is now seeing massive censorship arise on here. Agree with my ideology or I will ruin your account, your returns, your investment.
This is not fun to watch and I can only imagine how damaging and upsetting it feels to be on the receiving end of this "abuse"....
No large investors are ever coming here, and I mean EVER due to the ability of people with said mindset being able to wipe away their profit. No large companies, no large pension holders like me, no large investors "full stop"....
Until this place is forked off away from ned and his friends, until this place takes away the ability to flag people down to nothing just because they do not agree with someones ideology, this place is doomed to failure, and will only decrease in size, due to the amount of people being flagged for seemingly "fun"....
I was going to do another SBI giveaway though?.
The idea is flawed in two ways. I was going to do a giveaway to people that have shared the most votes out across the platform over 7 days, it is flawed though as people could just give tiny 1% votes on mass, and it would be pretty much abused.
The second reason why is sbi is a 2 way thing, you get a share, I get a share, we both get upvoted for articles/posts, and as I am close to quitting here due to the former, and sick of expecting it to be "my turn next" to be flagged into oblivion, there seems little to no point in me doing said giveaway ever again, sad but "true.".
@shepz1 is shaking his damn head, and very not amused today, maybe I will feel better later today, maybe not! Have a good day ahead regardless.
