Changing around my witness votes post softfork 0.22.2

in #steem2 years ago (edited)

If you are not aware, an update has been put in place with the top 20 witnesses that stops the ninja mine from Steemit's stake from voting. As far as I can tell it can still be used for delegation and powered down. But cannot be used to vote for witnesses and possibly not able to vote on content at all like posts and comments.

For more info on this change, @aggroed hosted a town hall meeting discussing this change, links below.

I decided to go through my Witness list looking at the @steempeak Approve witness tool for my account.

After removing those not on 0.22.2 and a disabled @helpie witness I had 12 votes left to hand out.

Outdated price ticker by many months but with softfork 0.22.2. Could not vote for this witness.

Making sure they had current price tickers and were enabled I got to picking my new witnesses to vote for.

Added the following witnesses to my approved list.


I left three Witnesses on my approved list that were not on the 0.22.2 change. Those witnesses are:


Hopefully they will update their servers as soon as possible.

Thats my @steempeak witness page looked like after taking out old witnesses and those not currently supporting the 0.22.2 fork. I am glad to be part of a proof of stake Blockchain. I am holding 141,362,452 VESTS and I should use it responsibly. Keeping the blockchain from being taken over using a stake that was meant for other things is important to me. So these changes needed to be done. Hope to see Steem become more decentralized. And looking forward to helping build servers were there is a need in the network.

Addresses below to help me buy better camera equipment and support me to travel to locations to do photo and video and overall great blogs in new places. I would be happy to list some of the contributors in my posts for donations that help me along the way.



@blockbrothers and @timcliff are openly opposed to this horse cock.. I mean soft fork. I took away all my witness votes but 4. I'm gonna need some research before voting

Steem would get pretty screwed if that ninja mine was used to voted for witnesses and its something Justin has already done in the past with tron.

Also blocktrades is on 0.22.2 but not timcliff.

@blockbrothers not blocktrades

Hah.. oops I completely read that wrong.

I may follow suit. I don’t like removing votes but I have been waiting for this response from our witnesses. We have been given very little option and once discussions have been executed over time and consensus is made relevant to plans for the ill-gotten stake via communication from Justin, restrictions can be removed early.

With a quick glance I’m pleased to see most of my witnesses have already updated 👌❤️

Sucks it ended up not being enough

Sad part is they admitted to having the discussion and believed the exchanges would not do such a thing 🤦‍♂️ we need a solution besides just restrictions on accounts stake or forking it out. Something that addresses stake based take overs long term. Top priority should be a system that does not involve trust, key component on decentralization!
