The Steem blockchain now is centralized under one person
Pretty a lot what the title says. Since the neighborhood forked away from Steem and began the Hive blockchain, all witnesses on Steem are managed and elected by Justin Sun.
You can verify the witnesses (block producers) right here: https://steempeak.com/me/witnesses
The individuals operating 22.5 are Justin Sun’s sock puppets.
On the Steemit frontend, Justin already began hiding posts that talk critically about him. He additionally blocked a listing of 10 accounts fully, of which 9 accounts are ex-witnesses. Additionally to that he began downvoting crucial posts with 20% of the entire coin provide (Not the staked provide, however the whole coin provide). He eliminates as much as 300$ of rewards with a single downvote.
Some of him supporters now demand to fork out the stake of people who switched to Hive. They not solely need to freeze it however fully delete it. And Sun has the ability to do this.
