A Message To The CTP Tribe

in #ctp7 months ago


What a mess huh....?

You know, when I first joined Steem, I saw the perfect match for our little side of the internet and the blockchain. It was too good to be true! Here's a blockchain and crypto currency that you could actually USE. And beyond that, you could learn about this amazing new technology and get rewarded while doing so. What an amazing idea!

So when Steem-Engine launched their SCOT bot project and gave us the ability to create our own front end blogging platform and token, we jumped on it! Invested thousands of dollars into building it up and integrated it into everything we do at ClickTrackProfit.

Sadly, as we know being entrepreneurs...Things don't always go as planned!

In case you missed it, the Steem blockchain will be 'hard forking' on Friday to create a brand new blockchain called ...

HIVE



I've been answering your Telegram, Discord and support tickets all day and thought it would be good to give you our game plan moving forward...

1. When this 'fork' happens, you will essentially get HIVE tokens, equivalent to what you hold in Steem. This is what happens when blockchains fork, similar to what happened a few years ago when Bitcoin forked and Bitcoin Cash was created. Everyone that held 'BTC' got airdropped BCH on selected exchanges. Confused? It happens all the time in the crypto space...But with STEEM it's different because there are so many spokes in the wheel per se. So just remember this right now, whatever you have in Steem, you will receive in HIVE on Friday.

2. The STEEM blockchain is NOT dying...That means, STEEM continues on like it did, however many in the community will make the switch to HIVE. Some will abandon STEEM, some will stay, some will use both...It's 100000000% your choice what you want to do, and where you want to create content on.

3. I have no idea what's going on with Steem-Engine tribes aka, the CTP Token. However I've been poking around and asking questions and what I can tell you is this...Steem Engine will remain on Steem for now. And their team is analyzing everything and will decide how to proceed. Steem Engine may stay on Steem forever, they may 'snapshot' and move to HIVE. They may stay on both chains. This being said, your content on CTP Talk remains, on CTP Talk. I wish I could tell you more, but this is the answer everyone seemed to get in the Steem-Engine Discord:

aggroed Yesterday at 6:00 PM

it'll take more than 3 days to figure out
I have legal questions that need to be answered

I get it. These guys have a million and one things they have their hands in, and Steem-Engine is a massive project. I want them to do it right, no matter what they plan. So I'm o.k. with letting them figure things out. This ensures our tribe and all tribes on Steem benefit the most from this fork.

4. I'm actually...Pretty excited! Look, there are plenty of unknowns. Especially in today's climate in the world. But for HIVE / STEEM specifically, I see this as a huge opportunity. For HIVE to show and prove what so many have thought all along, Steem's technology is superior to any blockchain out there...But we have always had that 'ugly history of the ninja mined stake'. This is a clean slate and fresh opportunity. So I'm pretty excited because I'm not loyal to a brand name when it comes to a blockchain...However I'm 10000% loyal to this community.

5. Ask questions! That's what is so awesome about Steem. People will help you, they will respond to you and you can get some clarity if you poke around. Again, lots of unknowns and I'm still scratching my head after over 2 years of being here..But I love this community. And I truly believe after all is said and done, we become stronger than ever before.

So whether it's Steem, HIVE or a combination of both...This is still the BEST blockchain community anywhere.

Here's to a big bright future!

As always, I will keep you guys up to date within CTP when I get more news!

If you have any questions or concerns, PLEASE pop by our Discord or Telegram groups and we can do our best to let you know what's going on :)

I don't get all the panic from the "ordinary" folks here... I mean, the content creators... We will have 2 platforms for creating, double coins, so where is the problem? Maybe, there will be a drop in the price of those coins, but they are already peanuts... and if I look into other's wallets, it's even more peanuts...

Don't panic people! Instead of panicking, do something creative and CREATE... Bring some value to the chain... as YOU are bringing value, not some ghost from the lamp...

I'm going to actually use this example you just laid out in an email today...lol Thanks man!

Well, right this minute, it looks to me like "The King is dead. The King is dead. Long live the King!"

Knowing that it is better than 48 hours until Hive goes live, I'm just waiting and really hopeful that this will be a true community effort.

Thanks Jon.

i hope so too man. Steem had all the potential in the world but circle jerking, only good ol' boys being supported, didnt help us small fries feel welcomed.

Instead, we built our own circle lol I jut hope for support across the entire chain.

Thanks, Jon @jongolson for your updates! Very much appreciated!

Thank you for being a huge part of this tribe and community Lisa!

Thanks for the update, the flow of information is more important now especially. In fact, it does answer several questions and helps with planning more than would seem obvious on the surface.

Yeah best advice for now....Keep creating, engaging and curating. There is no way to tell the future so no one should make massive decisions yet when it comes to which chain to focus on....I'm on both and will be for a while :)

Nice update Jon, so thinking a bit about Steem-engine and from a technical standpoint I can't see why they would not be able to run on both chains at the same time, I am not talking about specific SE tokens like CTP, but Steem-engine itself, and that the tribes could choose on what chain they want to run on rather than all tribes running on the same chain.

LOL Have you read the Steem Engine discord? It's a mess lol

Ok I did and you have a point, I also think you need to contact them and get CTPtalk over to Hive, because JS just started censoring the Steemit interface.

Great up date Jon Thank you for letting the group know what is up. As for steem-engine they will have to figure things out before they can do much. So on wards we go.

yup, and I'll do my best over the next few weeks to keep everyone up to date. Obviously I'll be blogging on all platforms, but making sure I'm there for everyone in Telegram and Discord too.

Thank you for this Jon! Really appreciate the update 😊😊😊

For sure. I know it doesnt have all the answers. But when we do and figure it all out, we'll let you guys know...For now...Enjoy the show LOL

For extra FAQ check my last #hive 👉 post.

Throw a link up, so people can check it out :)

It may all be a bit bumpy in the short run, but I have to think that the greater story here is that this fork is a victory of sorts for truly decentralized structures, as well as for the active Steem community members.

Agreed. This could be the greatest blockchain ever conceived. But if it falls into the old habits of Steem, I suspect another hard fork down the road LOL

Keep us posted.

Yessir!!

Thanks for putting out this info. Right now lets wait for the Wave... Much success and Respect!

Let's just go with the flow! Thanks for the heads up, Jon! @jongolson Stay safe, Lee :)
