Steemit.com belongs to a scammer - Why you should use an alternative like steempeak NOW!

in hive-174578 •  8 months ago 

I was asking around if I should stop using steemit.com even though I block ads so I'm not giving justin anything anyway. Without proper response, I started imagining worst-case scenarios.

The dangers of using steemit.com

It is clear that justin is ill intended, as he is attempting to take over all witnesses spots in order to centralize the steem blockchain completely. He bought Steem, Inc who doesn't own the steem blockchain, but does own steemit.com.

When I tried to post through steemit.com yesterday, steem keychain gave me a heads up, basically telling me that I should reconsider. That gave me some ideas.

What if the steemit.com website suddenly changes the posting button's function to a "send all of your steem to justinsun" button without warning? Anyone who automatically logs in will be devastated. This approach could target a few select users, which is even more dangerous, but it could also simply target everyone.

I don't even need to think of any other hypothesis. This one is dangerous enough on it's own. I'm not using steemit.com anymore. Go for steempeak.com or busy.org!

I agree and not using an adblocker is also giving him money when you use Steemit.

I prefer esteem for most of my blockchain needs... but you cant use your active key to post... and shouldn't be logging in with your master or owners keys.... so this is really not something you should fear. You can't move most steem tokens with your posting key except splinterland cards.

SteemPeak.com now has an option to log in with posting key.

Earlier today I wrote you a long answer that seems to not have gotten sent... Here I go again.

If we're used to tapping the confirm button without checking what is bone done everytime, then we're screwed. Specially if we already have the active key in our steem keychain or even worse - if we have permanently authorized it's usage for that particular website. Sure, there's the possibility I'm cautious enough, but it would still surely succesffully scam some people.
