<== An Outsider Look at HIVE ==>
HIVE Discord Servers
Hive is a social media platform built on a distributed blockchain. The HIVE blockchain is also an experiment in distributed governance based on a Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) voting mechanism.
HIVE promoters argue that a platform employing a distributed structure and governed by DPoS is less likely to engage in censorship than a centralized entities like Facebook and Twitter.
Since HIVE is a social media platform; one would expect conversations about the governance of HIVE to take place on HIVE. Oddly, many of the discussions about governance take place on Discord.
Discord, developed by a company called Hammer and Chisel is a messaging platform created by gamers who wanted an offline chat service so that players could coordinate strategies in multiple player games.
HiveWatchers and Discord
HiveWatchers is a group formed to protect HIVE from copyright abuse and identity theft. Apparently HIVE watchers discusses the accounts that they want to target on a discord server. People who are targeted by the spaminator bot must appeal on a discord server.
Since HIVE is a transparent social media platform, I believe that the appeals should take place on HIVE and not on some centralized discord server.
