I’ve been having a tough time blogging lately. I have enough pictures and life events for at least a dozen posts, but I’m still processing a fair amount of stuff from recent events in my 3d life, which always seems to cause my words to get stuck. For example, after thinking about writing an intro post for my Hive Blog Share account for about 2 months, it took the better part of three days to finish writing it. And yesterday I spent a fair amount of time on a post with pictures from this months’s full moon, but I still have yet to finish it.
Today, in an attempt to shake things up creatively, I’m going to try something a little bit different from my usual. While I have been known to use a GIF or two
thousand in my posts, this one is going to be pretty much just GIFS. Mainly because I was searching through my GIF collection yesterday, and scrolled through a bunch I made related to the Steem Hostile Takeover,and I realized they made a pretty decent visual representation of how things went down. While I know it’s all kind of water under the bridge at this point, I recently watched an interview with Dan Hensley and David Gokhshtein about the ordeal, so it’s been on my mind again.
I was originally going to try to go through and find the corresponding tweets I created these GIFS for, but after only about two seconds of trying to search, my brain almost melted. If you want to check out a timeline of the events, here’s an excellent article by @shadowspub who watched it all unfold along with the rest of of us. But for the most part, I’m only including the dates each one was uploaded to GIPHY – if you’re familiar with the story, I think most of these will make sense without explanation. If you’re not… I think trying to explain it will make your brain melt (if I haven’t melted them already 😂 )…
Last bit before I get started (see, I’m already getting chattier…lol) – as far as I’m concerned, if Justin Sun did the right thing and returned the money he stole from the 60+ accounts, I could see it leading to a detente of sorts. Not that anyone from the Hive community (IMHO, of course) would ever want to do anything remotely associated with Steem or Tron, but I could see things quieting down, and a sort of peaceful co-existence developing in the CryptoSphere. But if Justin doesn’t make amends for what happened (whether or not he did those things directly, or they were done under his authority), I think the buzzing wings from the Hive community will eventually cause a tsunami of trouble for a long time to come. And that’s coming from me – a little bee with not much “skin in the game” (aka, investment), especially compared to the accounts that were robbed. I can only imagine how I’d feel if I was the one of the people out hundreds of thousands of dollars because of his actions during the hostile takeover.
And with that, here is…
The Story of the Steem Hostile TakeOver, as told by my GIFS
(EDITED TO ADD – @alwayshayleym is a wicked nice person from Tron & we were working on a post to introduce the two communities to each other, tentatively titled, “Crypto Coffee Chat with Hayley & Traci”)
I’ll leave you with this final GIF that I created on June 14th
I hope you enjoyued the Story of the Steem Hostile TakeOver, in interpretative GIF form…LOL! As always, please feel free to shout out if you have any questions or comments. I’m sure I’ll be back to my normal (HA!) blogging self in the very near future.
