Interesting. I didn't know the restriction on the ninja-mined stake was already in the code but not switched on. I missed that bit in the story.
For me, there are two stand out takeaways:
- incomplete due diligence and/or information was requested but not provided. The latter seems to be the case from the Tron/Consensus Witness meeting.
- the behaviour of the exchanges involved, appropriating customer funds for another use.
Good to see that both of these are not my circus, not my monkeys:
- For Tron to take up with the previous owner.
- For the exchanges to deal with. I hope their customers are kicking up a storm ... and any regulatory bodies that might have an interest.
Meanwhile, for the Steem Community:
- have we got control of the narrative?
- and what is the narrative? Is it: we want to work with you, there are benefits for both parties, let's start talking about how it can be and negotiate a way forward within the consensus governance of the blockchain.
Final extraordinary takeaway: how a decentralised global community crossing many times zones, cultures and languages can organise together.
