When I first joined Hive I never knew what was possible as I never had any expectations of riches. That is changing slowly as the stake is growing each month and the possibilities of what could be is slowly dawning on me. I have never cashed out 1 Hive so this is still Monopoly money to me and even though I know it is real I have not benefitted from it yet.
The biggest change in the nearly 3 years I have been here is the various tribes and the earning prospects they have added. Earning Hive was the main goal of every user but these days it still is, but not necessarily the main growth area.
Slowly but surely the Tribe tokens are catching up to the value of my Hive account and at some point I can see them overtaking being worth more in dollar value. I can remember looking at this over a year ago and working out as a percentage back then and the tribes were just under 10% of my account value.
Today they are sitting at just on 30% and the growth in Dollar value is now coming from here. Leo has obviously had a major influence on this and expect it to carry on and at some point could be worth more than what I have staked in Hive. I have $6400 worth of Hive and over $2000 in Leo plus LBI which I include as they go hand in hand.
Over the last week more than half my growth came via Leo whereas before it was roughly 50/50. If we throw the other tribes in with this figure I am looking at a 60/40 split so it is clearly showing how important the tribes are to anyone wanting to grow their account.
This is important for a number of reasons as the growth is more than double what we all had 2 years ago. The 46 000 Hive has taken me 3 years to accumulate and if the tribes had been in existence from day one back then, surely I would have more monetary value today.
I am more positive than ever after reviewing my account of what is possible and why staking every Leo token is that important. Actually every token is important but Leo has the potential like Hive to do something remarkable over the coming years. I will revisit this in 6 months or so as it will be interesting to see how much closer the breakdown is and expect it to be much closer to the 50/50 total account value split.
