RE: Steemhunt Shutsdown Witness Node - We will Focus on Building DApps that Achieve Mass-Adoption

in #witness-update2 years ago

Thanks for your opinion. Everyone has a different opinion. Honestly, we just want to quite this drama asap and move forward. For the downvote, it has more side effects than the limiting abusers in my opinion. We can think better way to prevent abusers. Also, there are now many downvoting abusers too who want to earn from the downvoting pool.

The role of proxy.token is so simple. They want to settle two extreme-sides to combine. We believe this role becomes very important nowadays. But it's the very beginning stage, so let's see how it will go.


The truth is, it is not like the consensus witnesses have been fantastic or that the community is entirely pleased with them. If proxy.token shows a good sense of judgement going forward, I forsee a lot of users setting him as their proxy. We all want positive changes.

I also think the issues about downvoting policy can be sorted with smt. The steem reward can be entirely replaced by community's tokens that can easily be swapped for steem on the dex. Each community can then decide on how to address abuses.

There are no rewards from downvoting.

oh my point was "free" downvoting mana pool, that are kinda rewards to smash down other authors' reward shares to increase their own shares.

What an utter bullshit. The people using downvotes the most don't even post regularly. And even if they did, the reward shares that are returned to the pool are split between all other posts, which means less than one cent for a single one.
