Question for the top 20 Witnesses about HF21

I have been a little bit distracted today regarding STEEM… fortunately I have read the last post of @mindtrap regarding what it seems to be an irremediable implementation of the famous Hardfork 21, which seems that is going to be deployed in very short time…

After reading the short informative post of @steemitblog (Steemit Update: HF21 Testnet, SPS, EIP, Rewards API, SMTs!) and all the consequent comments I personally don’t support any of the proposed changes, mainly because I think it is going to penalize thousands of content creators in favor of big whales IMO…

This time @Steemit has informed us that by Thursday 1 PM EDT a Tesnet with the HF21 will be available for anyone to test the new code… That is great because Witnesses and developers will test how stable the code will be…

But, of course, we are unable to anticipate what would be the impact that those drastic changes, IMO, will bring for the steemians.

Honestly, what I have read till now is more negative than positive…a few witnesses have defended the new proposal, some clearly not… also I have read very contrarial opinions coming not only from Minnows and Dolphins but also from Orcas and big stakers…

However, in this blockchain we have a consensus protocol on which mainly the 20 top witnesses can vote in favor or against the proposed Hardfork before its deployment.

We, the non-witness steemians have our opinion and a point of view but we can do very little if the witnesses have decided already to go all-IN for the Hardfork implementation…but, it seems to me that those witnesses can have a biased opinion since they are in the top 20, sometimes, because the big whales in favor of the HF21 have put them there…sorry if I am wrong…

Before trying the new code at the TESNET, I would like to ask a question to the top 20…hopefully I reach them from here…

who of the TOP 20 witnesses is in favor and who is against?


Just I would like an answer from each of you, IN FAVOR or AGAINST… no justification, no more comments, that’s all…

I hope they read this post.

Survey Says…Fund Managers Are Bearish On The Equity Markets

Bank of America Merrill Lynch surveyed 230 fund managers responsible for $645 billion in funds in the second week of June and they found a sharp increase in risk aversion.The survey is the “most bearish survey of investor confidence since the Global Financial Crisis,” they write. “Pessimism driven by concerns over trade war/recession, monetary policy impotence and low strike prices for policy puts.”The survey showed the second largest drop in equity allocation ever and global growth expectations fell by the most in a single survey since 1994.On policy, they don’t see a Fed put until the S&P 500 hits 2430

Lets talk about: Facebook’s “Libra”

I didn’t want to write a post about Libra.
I’m a crypto blogger and, in my professional opinion, Libra isn’t a cryptocurrency. I mentioned it briefly yesterday, as a joke, but I can see that I will have to mention it a few more times.
As an impartial, objective and knowledgeable third-party, I see it as my responsibility to correct wrong opinions in the crypto world. I can’t always convince people, but I can give them a fighting chance and I can then sleep soundly at night, knowing that I have at least tried to help. I have already seen some very

Corn Smart Money Sentiment 6/19/19 – A Huge Reversal By The Smart Money

Dozens of corn farmers and those who sell them seed, chemicals and equipment gathered on Thursday at the restaurant in Deer Grove, Illinois, after heavy rains caused unprecedented delays in planting this year and contributed to record floods across the central United States.The storms have left millions of acres unseeded in the $51 billion U.S. corn market and put crops that were planted late at a greater risk for damage from severe weather during the growing season. Together, the problems heap more pain on a farm sector that has suffered from years of low crop prices and a U.S.-China trade

? Facebook Unveils Libra Cryptocurrency, Targeting 1.7 Billion Unbanked

You don’t have to have a Facebook account to use Libra.

That’s the hands-off approach the social media giant is working toward as it announces its new blockchain and the token of the same name that will run on top of it.

While Tuesday’s announcement is still early days, the scope of the project is far-reaching. It includes a new Facebook subsidiary, Calibra, and an independent consortium, Libra Association, backed by some of tech’s biggest names.

“Implied in this project is that wherever the Visa or Mastercard logo are accepted, Libra would follow suit,” Dante Disparte, head of policy and communications for the Libra Association, told CoinDesk in an exclusive interview. “In so many ways it’s a great leap forward for cryptocurrencies and, in many respects, a mainstreaming of this asset class.”

? Global Banking Giant HSBC Launches Tokenization-Based Receivables System for India

Major global banking group HSBC has implemented tokenization technology into its receivables infrastructure for corporate clients in India, according to an announcement on June 18.

The British multinational financial services company has reportedly launched its Digital Accounts Receivable Tool (HSBC DART), based on tokenization technology developed by Australian blockchain-powered Fintech company Identitii Ltd., the firm said in the announcement.

According to the statement, HSBC DART was developed for HSBC’s Global Liquidity and Cash Management (GLCM) business and deploys Identitii’s approach to tokenization within HSBC’s existing infrastructure of receivables to enhance involved processes.

? Libra White Paper Shows How Facebook Borrowed From Bitcoin and Ethereum

With the long-awaited Libra white paper, Facebook is showing off its blockchain smarts, and making a bid for crypto credibility.

Released Tuesday morning, the 29-page paper describes a protocol designed to evolve as it powers a new global currency. More than a year in the making, the document opens by trumpeting the new blockchain’s ambitious goal:

“The Libra Blockchain is a decentralized, programmable database designed to support a low-volatility cryptocurrency that will have the ability to serve as an efficient medium of exchange for billions of people around the world.”

? Fidelity-Backed Crypto Analytics Firm to Integrate Twitter-Based Crypto Sentiment Feed

Crypto analytics firm Coin Metrics partnered with Social Market Analytics (SMA) to collaborate on a feed of real-time sentiment towards cryptocurrency based on social media data, according to a press release on June 17.

The new partnership intends to collect and analyze data posted by crypto community on social media in order to provide a new tool to help crypto traders to track social media sentiment data to build their portfolio strategies.

The new product will initially target sentiment data solely on social media giant Twitter, Coin Metrics CEO Tim Rice confirmed to Cointelegraph, adding that the firms are currently not considering integration of the service into Facebook.

? India asks WhatsApp to fingerprint messages to ensure traceability

India has asked WhatsApp to digitally fingerprint every message sent on its platform without breaking its encryption, according to two senior government officials, as it seeks to ensure traceability of all content shared on the Facebook-owned messaging application.

WhatsApp should be able to identify where a message originated and how many people have read and forwarded it without having to read the message, the officials said. The government has been insistent in its demand for traceability of WhatsApp messages after misinformation and rumours around child kidnappings on the platform led to a spate of lynchings across India in 2018.

Fingerprinting WhatsApp messages will help find the originator of the message. That is all we want,” the official cited above told ET.

STEEM Trading Update by my friend @cryptopassion

Here is the chart of yesterday :


Here is the current chart :


The support line at 0.41$ was not strong enough and I was already warning you yesterday that we could break it durin any little correction on the BTC, which has been the case today. So the next support line is around 0.395$ and we could go test that support line before having a bounce and trying to go back upper than 0.41$. Let’s see how the BTC will impact us also in this scenario.
