My First Hive Anniversary: Backstory, Update, Message
It was a great year!
I know that my journey has been tough for me, there are ups and downs but I am glad that I am now celebrating my first year on Hive. Actually, it was September 12, 2021, when I started using Hive but I had long hiatus on the platform due to its complexity (well, I think this is the common reason why new onboarded users are leaving).
But seriously, I have regrets about stopping using Hive because I am now seeing its outcome. Nevertheless, I always continue and learn more about the platform. In fact, I also published a 17-page e-book that will guide the new users to start on the chain.
Despite the long hiatus, I chose to continue and I am now starting to build my account. I am trying to increase the portion of my Hive power that I know it will be worth it in the future. My current goal is to reach 1,000 HP before this year ends.
A Little Backstory Behind My Account
I had an account on Hive before but due to my ignorance, I forgot to save my keys and it is nowhere to be found. I didn’t bother to create another account because I find it complicated. But then, someone introduced me to #Splinterlands.
The concept and cheap investment in the game caught my interest. Hence, I played and named it under the name anonymous02. This username is my in-game name on every other game like Mobile Legends, Clash of Clans, etc.
After a month of playing, I realized that this game works under the Hive blockchain. Hence, I tried to use my keys on PeakD and Dbuzz…and hey, I have an account!
Since then, I started blogging and writing topics in line with my interest. But to be honest, I don’t like my username as my blogging name. I never had the choice to change it but it’s fine. At least my friends knew me now!
What’s Happening to My Account?
Here are the updates on my account! As of now, I am trying to earn more Hive Power and my goal is to have 1,000 HP.
As you can see, it is now rising and I want to turn myself from Redfish to a Minnow!
Also, I am now trying to grind my Splinterlands by buying more cards that will increase my power and SPS stash. I am now staking some of my SPS inside the game and currently earning 30%+ APR for my stake. My investment is not that huge but it’s still a good part of my portfolio.
Hey, I am a low-rank player but I’m somehow enjoying the game. Soon, I will join the weekly challenge of Splinterlands and journal my gameplay so I can buy more and upgrade cards.
Message from the author
I just want to say thank you to @PVMihalache who invited me to the platform. And to my friends who are always supporting me on my blogs. I won’t mention them because they already know it!
Of course, to @hiveph who are always supportive in the community, especially for beginners. I am thankful that I belong in the community. I learned a lot about Hive because of Hive PH.
To @dreemport who have been nice to me since I joined the community, thank you! I know that the concept of #dreemport will become a successful project. It should be known in and outside the Hive blockchain that’s why I always encourage everyone to use it.
Overall, I am glad that I am still here after a year of grinding! I hope this community will stay longer until I have more time to spend with the community. It is hard to manage my time now because of my heavy schedule as a student. Nevertheless, I am doing my best to visit it when I have free time.
We are now starting the Mind⁺⁺ newsletter. Are you participating in the prompt? Well, you should! There will be more surprises soon so stay tuned!
There will be new resources on my website…do you love journaling? Well, I think you might love it!
Ooh! I am funding for my laptop…maybe you can help by giving tip on Ko-fi? It will be a huge help for my studies!
Again…Happy Hive Birthday to Me!
