I support and run this update on my witness @roelandp. It has been an intense 10 days but great worker with a big group of long term Steem stakeholders, consisting of investors, community members, witnesses.
I will issue my own views shortly on my account - but the gist is:
- This is a preventive temporarily measure - softfork nonetheless
- The Steemit inc stake is a special fund, just like @steem.dao is and should have had been coded with special ruleset long time ago.
- Mixed signals from the new owner of the Steemit stake rise the risks in irreversible use of the stake.
- Again: this is temporal and done for the s(t)ake of the Steem chain. Your chain, our chain.
