Statement on the Steem network (STEEM, SBD) version 0.23 proposed hard fork

There is a Steem network (STEEM, SBD) version 0.23 proposed hard fork published in the following GitHub branch:

The proposed hard fork is set to be enabled on May 20, 2020 at 7:00 AM PT (May 20, 2020 at 2:00 PM UTC).

The proposed hard fork is considered a contentious hard fork as it transfers the funds of 64 user accounts to a STEEM account named "community321".

Bittrex will close deposits and withdrawals of STEEM and SBD on May 19, 2020 at 9:00 PM PT (May 20, 2020 at 04:00 UTC).

We will monitor the proposed hard fork and take into account any further developments before deciding on further action.
