SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 17 December 2018

The big news today… Steemit Inc has spoken.

Steemit Inc has issued an update statement. I will leave you to judge – it is not a long read…

The length of the update is rather being dwarfed by the growing number of comments. One comment from @smooth (witness#7) stands out…

I can’t speak for 20 witnesses. I have little doubt there will continue to be witnesses willing to sign blocks even if not necessarily all of the current ones. The list has changed over time anyway.

I know for the first time in 2.5 years (to my knowledge), some people have been seriously talking about a fork that would lock or erase the ninjamined steemit/founder stake because they are not convinced that Steemit as acting in good faith nor holding up its end of the social contract. It is disturbing that things have gotten so bad that is actually being considered.

It isn’t something I’m in favor of at this point, but frankly Steemit seems to be doing its very best to push people toward that. I guess one might wonder if they have reasons to want it, or are really just THAT incompetent. I’m honestly not sure.

@whatsup has given his response to the fork talk…

I’ve heard the word fork a lot recently also. I think it will just create a larger split.

Not sure I’ve seen a realistic proposal yet.

I think it is clear we should not have any expectation from SteemIt, Inc and move forward as if they are a large stakeholder.

Meanwhile Partiko Acts On Tumblr

Meanwhile Partiko has lept into action to offer a home for tens of thousands of NSFW Tumblr bloggers who have been given the boot under Tumblr’s new ‘modesty rules’.

Share2Steem In A Pickle

The two leaders of the Share2Steem app have fallen out and gone their separate ways.

There has subsequently been confusion all round. @exyle put out an alert to revoke your Steem Connect settings if you use Share2Steem.
