Finally, I read your posting. Thanks for sharing those references. I'm completely with you in those three cases. I just don't get how you can state, with all those principles in place that you mentioned, that Hive is decentralized - just because there are +20 Nodes supporting its basic functions and jada jada... There's quite some indications that "Ninja stake" was involved while it has been created, just as "Ninja stake" has been given as a reason to fork Steem in the first place - and that's not the thing I want to criticize. But that decentralization can not exist in delegated systems. Although I wish that Hive is going to be a success to many! Chain on! Chains off!!
