2 Jul 2020 4 minute read 0 comments bengy

    Unsplash   Well... let's get the first bit out of the way. I think the position that we are in is the result of mistakes on both the STEEM and TRON sides, resulting in a soft fork from the STEEM side and a witness takeover on the TRON side. Both...

      Well.. I finally had a bit of time to listen to the YouTube recording of the Zoom discussion between the Tron and Steem sides of this huge blowup. I definitely recommend that everyone listens in on this recording... it does start to lay out so...
