Thoughts on Hive and 8K POWERDOWN

in #steemleo8 months ago

I have just begun an 8000 SP powerdown, the first since I joined Steem during its tumultuous beginnings where the Steemit stake was setting the stage for what is going on with the Tron “partnership”. I put partnership within quotes because it is obviously a botched operation. @blocktrades announced a coming hard fork that is to exclude the Steemit stake deemed to be mined unfairly and leveraged as an enticing promise to decentralization by a person called Ned. This person is arguably a megalomaniac which explains how he could have mounted an entire community against himself. How can a character be so flawed that he would be so despised is a question I am still asking myself.

Truth be told, I knew next to nothing of Ned before Steemfest 4 where I had also watched Youtube videos from previous years where he talked. In a sense, Ned and Dan Larimer, created a Frankenstein that would one day surpass all their expectations. At this point, we are a united community poised to capitalize on all of this bad press in an almost cut throat way. At least, this is how I can explain that Steem is actually climbing Coin Market Cap in spite of all of this. This is not financial advice but just a thought.

I have left 20% of my SP in of course to support any upcoming transition because after all, I want my actions to speak louder than words.

I always have felt an uncanny loyalty to Steem as I have been more or less active according to my whims and intuition. It is with a heavy but hopeful heart that I am trying to attain more liquidity which is what I feel is wisest at this point.

Nothing can tarnish the name Steem or even Steemit have meant for me when they were pertinent. Just like our old ways before Covid19, they have fallen behind and enters the sweet sensation of nostalgia.

I have spent sleepless night thinking about the potential of this blockchain and I probably will do the same under Hive. I have no intention on abandoning my responsibility to this blockchain but I am confused about my ability to navigate tumultuous waters that far surpass the blockchain into the real world.

This hard fork is a goddess-send just because I was terrified at those sock puppets glaring at me, I was scared that no exchanges would want us and that my blog might not survive this. A clear and auspicious path is now emerging.

“How to make a statement”, I ask myself every day, in the sea of complexity all around me. “I have always wanted to be a good leader, but what good is that when you have a hard time making the most simple decisions. Can this idea of leadership be put on hold until there is a clear path or do I just start gambling to stay a leader”.

“What does being a good leader even mean when my only hunch is: as above so below?”

I mean, this is some seriously occult shit and it is all that comes to me. It is the only advice I can give anyone right now.

On the bright side, solidarity emerges like a beacon of light. If we stand a chance of surviving this, that’s how it got to be done.

The skies are getting insane from that drop in industrial activity, you gotta watch out for that good ol’ McPherson paradox there.

I have left 20% of my SP in of course to support any upcoming transition because after all, I want my actions to speak louder than words. Steem has never been about greed. Being somewhat power hungry, sure, you gotta take the power back from those freakin’ multinationals of social media but greed? Never.

Playing with money triggers greedy parts of the brain but if anything, I have been able to work on my greed, not enhance it.

This hard fork is a goddess-send just because I was terrified at those sock puppets glaring at me, I was scared that no exchanges would want us and that my blog might not survive this. A clear and auspicious path is now emerging.

We are fighting a larger battle, nay, war FOR decentralization here. Our community members range from all walks of life and financial beliefs. I love the people here, some will leave of course but hey, that’s life!

For example, I like YOU whoever you are, who is reading this until the end. We live in interesting times where our physical existence is somehow mirrored by this blockchain. It will not last but please, make the most of it, keep putting your heart in what you do like you always have.

Having skin in the game is what Hive is going to have over Voices right off the bat. Few go through lengths to strive for their ideals as we former Steemians do. There are many challenges ahead to live up to those principles, let’s just see how we do.
