Vitalik Buterin and Justin Sun Clash Over STEEM Account Freezes
Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, took to Twitter earlier today to slam the upcoming STEEM hard fork over issues with customer funds. Buterin vs. Sun began with the highly publicized hard fork of the STEEM blockchain from Hive.
STEEM conducted a soft fork last month – a move that ended with the platform seizing up to 20 accounts that initially operated on the HIVE blockchain. Network validators affiliated with Sun sanctioned the seizure of another 23.6 million STEEM tokens (worth about $5.5 million).
