I never said that I believe hive is great. I think I mentioned that before: Read my comments on hive and your will see that I'm very concerned about the points you made.
Again a false dichotomy: If I find steem bad I don't have to find hive good. I am pretty disappointed about both chains.
Personally, on scale of one (disaster) and 10 (best chain ever) its hive 5 and steem 3.
And I'm not actually sure what I do once I powered down my steem. Might invest in a PoW coin as DPoS seem to be not SAFU.
