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.
