These past few days -- over a week now -- I needed a break from all this war.
War on Steem, war on Covid-19, wars all around.
It's not like any of them ended.
But at least a tiring status quo will soon end on Steem.
A status quo during which both parties bought time. Justin Sun to find a (much bigger!) fool to sell Steemit, Inc. to, the other party supported by most of the community, devs and dapps, to work on a different chain.
Looks the like new chain is coming, very soon!
I'm almost certain you read or heard of the post of blocktrades. Another post will be written today, probably not by him, explaining the details about the new chain, the airdrop and how will the move happen. At least that's what I understood by reading one of his comments.
While I know there may be hard times ahead on the new chain called Hive -- aren't we used to them already? --, I also believe we have little evidence anything good could come out of Steem after the events which led to the current stalemate.
Nobody really wants a way forward on Steem (maybe some in the community do), all they wanted was to buy time, both Justin Sun and many of the former consensus witnesses.
Looks like the preparations for the new Hive chain were quicker than Justin Sun was able to find a bigger fool to sell the Steemit, Inc. hot potato to.
I "foresee" some legal actions from JS and Tron against Ned to recover the investment.
Nobody will wash him from the actions he took while he was the boss of Steemit, Inc. though.
As for myself, there were enough days during this forced break when I missed steeming, even if I had nothing to say.
I will go where community goes, hiving on... possibly not daily anymore. But we will see. About the frequency of writing I mean. :)
Here's to New Beginnings!
