3 Years! What A Journey!

in LeoFinancelast month

I was planning something totally different for today, but not long ago I've got a comment from @hivebuzz, congratulating me on my birthday. No worries, it's my real birthday, but my Hive birthday.

I've got a birthday cake too! Thanks @hivebuzz for the nice surprise!

At first it made me smile, then the whole three years started rolling before my eyes, like a movie. I still can't believe it's been three years already and still remember that day in which I've registered. Everything was so complicated, I was confused, the whole system looked like a 10000000 piece of puzzle and now looking back I can say it was 100 times simple than what we have now. Funny, isn't it? :D

It's been a hell of a ride, full of events and surprises. The whole journey started out as a test for me to see if my English is good enough to survive here and learn as much as possible about the crypto world. The things I've learned can't be quantified and the learning period is far from over, it's more like it has just begun. I've made friends, enemies, met interesting people and participated in many projects.

In three years, being here day by day I've managed to accumulate $5,500 on my main account and almost $1,300 on my alt, which combined means $6,800. Not a bad outcome, if we consider that I've never invested fiat or any other cryptocurrency. With this stake I can help others to grow and the more I accumulate, the more I can support others with.

The Future

Obviously no one knows what the future holds for us and that's fine. However, I've changed a lot and see this place from a different perspective. What started out as a blogging platform, grew to an investment opportunity that is foolish not to take into consideration.

Things could go in any direction from here. Development is ongoing and compared to what we had 3 years ago, when I joined, we're far away now. We've got a lot of dapps, front ends, investment opportunities, so this place is rather a financial game, not a blogging platform anymore.

This blockchain has a huge potential and we haven't seen the half of it. It's still early as Hive is not yet one year old, so the freedom we've got by forking is still new.

I'm here to stay and enjoy the next three years as well. My strategy however may be different from now on. Diversifying my portfolio is a priority. A series of new and promising projects have been announced already that will change our life. We're not quire ready for mass adoption but we're getting there and once that happens, everyone will be happy for being here early.

Last but not least I'd like to thank everyone who's been with me on this nice journey and hope you'll accompany me in the next years that are coming.

So what about you? How long have you been here? And how long are you planning to stay ?:)

Congrats on 3 years, huge milestone. I think all of us can relate to just how lost we were when first starting. Guess we all are also proof that if you give this place some time and effort it can become the new normal. I rarely ever have a question about how things work these days, instead I’m able to help other new people become accustomed to the way of Hive.

Thank you! It is a huge milestone, indeed :)

I'm trying to pass my knowledge on the the new generation, helping those who are new as it must be very hard for them. As i said, things are more difficult now for new users and we need to help them if we want them to stay.

I can help others to grow and the more I accumulate, the more I can support others with.

And that is the best part of Hive. You can create your own wealth while helping others crating theirs.

Exactly! And the vast majority of the users are doing that. Fortunately those who cash out every penny are less.

i am not sure does 3 years feel like ages or like it was just few months ago.

Happy hive birthday

I've just checked your account and looks like you're next :D so Happy Hive Birthday to you too!!!

How does it feel? It depends on how active you've been I guess :)

Wow, 3 years! This means that you are here a little bit longer than me :) Only that I forgot to make my 3 year anniversary post (!)
I think that we have come to learn a great deal, and have made some really good friends during this time.
It is a pleasure knowing you, keep up sharing your beautiful content :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I'm a bit confused now. You say I've been here for a little bit longer than you but still you have forgotten to do your anniversary post :) When did you register then?

It's a pleasure knowing you too, we've come a long way and hope to continue this journey together :)

I wrote it in a hurry, thanks for noticing! I joined October 2017 so I have been here a little bit longer than you 😊🙂 It’s been a long day today!

Oh, now I understand, thanks for clarifying :)

We must have hit the subscribe button almost at the same time. Well, I did it one month before you probably as my blockday is in December. And of course we all know the verb "A December to remember", this is only more of a truth since I hit that button and created my account.

Plans to leave haven't crossed my mind yet, so I guess, I will stay for a while. I hope to walk the crypto path for a long time together with all people here.

Congrats on your blockday! And a very good accomplishment!

Thank you and I'm glad to be here with you and all these wonderful people.

I'm not planning to leave either, it's the best place to be right now, would be foolish to leave :)
