In accordance with our notice period, all FutureShock services on Steem are going to be interrupted after the 31 May 2022

One of Crucial service they operate and maintain was Steemlogin , a signer app for steem blockchain that is currently used by https://worldofxpilar.com and other dapps on steem as well.

We found that the service is quite crucial for the blockchain and decided to maintain it further . As a responsible witness me and my team's focus is always help to support the chain as much as we could .

That is why we hereby announce https://steemlogin.xyz a simple fork of Steem Login Web App . GitHub

We are focused and Dedicated to support Steem .

We also operate a full api node available on https://api.steemdb.online

If you like what we are doing please support our witness, we need your help to continue our work here!

Warning. We are strongly against thieves like you who stole users keys in the past to maintain this app. How you even dare to use the same name as steemlogin for your scam fork.

So we are recommending to any devs and builders to make their own fork of steemlogin or continue to use steemlogin.com.
If you use the solution of steem-supporter he will steal your and/or your users keys without any doubt, he made it with dporn and tried to make it with steemauto too.

Finally we will maintain steemlogin as much as we can to protect steem users, even if we leave.

Dear @future.witness

Would you have any other suggestion to those of us, regular people who use SteemLogin? Based on my understanding , you're shutting down support to us. And there is noone else who seem to be willing to do anything to help those of us, who will be left with a huge problem.

So regardless on "history" and your opinion about steem-supporter -> this seem to be the only solution we may have. So taking a risk of trusting him will be a MUST.

As far as I'm aware, he is the one behind current version of "steem-auto": https://worldofxpilar.com

I've been using it for several months already. And so did several thousands of other Steemit users. So my line of thinking is: if he would really like to steal our keys, then he wouldn't have to develop another tool. He could simply do it already.

And yet, I don't see thousands of people complaining about it. Neither did I see hundreds or even few people who had a problem with @steem-supporter.

Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm trying to be as neutral as possible.

I would also like to point out, that he is innocent until proven guilty. And just accusing him of stealing users keys without any SOLID proov is nothing but a "low blow".

Hi @crypto.piotr.

So regardless on "history" and your opinion about steem-supporter -> this seem to be the only solution we may have. So taking a risk of trusting him will be a MUST.

Regarding your concern about there not existing a service to replace steemlogin, there already is one that @ety001 hosts. It can be found at https://auth.steem.fans.

And just accusing him of stealing users keys without any SOLID proov is nothing but a "low blow"

So, here's the thing about posting keys, if you authorize someone's account to use it, it is as good as you giving access to your voting and posting rights in case of posting key. And I'm sure you are aware of what had happened the last time with steem-auto(the one maintained by steem-supporter). So, when a auth service comes out, it's not uncommon for everyone to be apprehensive about using it.

Alright , what about accusations of lost funds while i had posting auth that was signed through steemlogin by providing active key . How can you relate lost funds with posting authorization

That was a bullshit claim and I didn't even try to support that. Pretty sure most of the people who did question your previous actions know that your posting authority had nothing to do with the funds lost. A few non-technical ones might have had the issue.

Thank you @starlord28

I wasn't aware of that particular option. But then, the problem of "trust" is still an issue. Could you please tell me who @ety001 is?

Perhaps it is a well known person, I however never heard that name.

And I'm sure you are aware of what had happened the last time with steem-auto(the one maintained by steem-supporter)

Truth be told - I've heard about that issue, which took place quite a long while ago. However, it never affected me or anyone from Project.hope community or anyone else that I know from Steemit.

And as far as I'm aware, there has been never any real proof that @steem-supporter did use his position to hack any accounts.

So my view is still as follow: I'm glad to take a risk and put my trust in steem-supporter. I'm even using current version of STEEMAUTO which he is managing. And neither me or any of thousands of other users complained about their accounts being hacked.

That gives me some perspective and I'm growing to belief, that this conflict is nothing more than personal issue between steem-supporter and person behind @future.witness

I may be of course wrong. But this is where I stand right now.

Cheers, Piotr

Could you please tell me who @ety001 is?

He's a developer from the Steemit team. Pretty much every developer on this platform who runs their witness nodes would know ety001. Any issues with TRX rewards, spam accounts on steem, and the whole steemit.com is partly maintained by him. So, the platform that you and I use regularly is all maintained by him and a few others.

there has been never any real proof that @steem-supporter did use his position to hack any accounts.

I was one of the people who was affected. In fact, the whole of bestofindia community was affected by this. I have said this several times before as well, I cannot trust this person until he gives me a solid claim that I can believe. I have told this to xpilar as well. I do believe xpilar is doing right but steem-supporter has not provided any evidence of why people should even be trusting him.

@crypto.piotr here's a trip back down memory lane where your account too was abused. Probably never noticed. https://steemit.com/xrp/@cubexagon/xrp-is-it-the-future

Thanks for being so responsive
