Have you always wanted to ask me something?
Now is your chance, there won't be another!
(ok, ok, there will)

Hit me up in the comment section with a question and I will do my best to answer it. I post a new AMA post every 2 months or so.

Want to do your own AMA?

--> There is a community for that™ <---

Want to check out my previous AMAs?

What is an AMA?

AMA is a format popular on Reddit where one person offers to answer questions for a limited period of time.

How long will I answer questions?

I will usually answer them pretty quickly, and I should be around for a few hours. I will continue to answer them as they come in.

What type of questions can you ask?

I'm open to pretty much anything but my interest fall in the following categories:

  • Hive
  • Hive Witness
  • Crypto
  • Gaming (Video & Board)
  • Saving my team in Hunt: Showdown
  • Photography
  • Development
  • Technology
  • Productivity
  • Movies & TV
  • Comedy
  • Memes
  • Waiting for GPUs to come in stock

Don't feel limited to the above categories, just things I generally know about.

Oh and look at my friends kitten I'm totally not going to take home with me.

Hey Mark! Have you ever worked on a project that you were super proud of, but just didn't make the impact you were hoping for?

Of course, I think most people have. Not everything is a smashing success.

I am a firm believer in the mentality Fail fast, fail often.

That's awesome! Obviously the world has progressed at such an incredible rate because of this kind of mentality... it's so much healthier than always trying to be perfect.

As an IT Security guy though, it does pain me a little though, because not enough people go back to properly secure the thing that did end up succeeding... although I guess if they did I'd be out of a job.

Thanks for your reply!

Honestly, I haven't seen Justice League yet. I usually save these types of movies to watch with my son and we just haven't got to this one yet. There are a few other movies I wanted to see with him in the universe before this. We have kept up with Marvel though.

I think Warner Bros doesn't like the Snyder cut or Snyder himself. It's not likely they'll make it happen, but they said the same thing about the Snyder cut...it happened. If the momentum for the Snyderverse continues or rises, then that will happen too.

Yeah hopefully the momentum will win out. Would suck if it didnt, just when DC was finally onto something

I think it will. Once the final tally's are made, Warner will cave. Someone will pick up the Snyderverse. I have no doubt. I do, however, have no idea when that will happen. Hopefully soon enough that the actors don't age too much.

Hi dear, how are you doing? Who's the little kitty? How you balance personal life and work? Aren't you addictive to Hive?

Our friend rescued two kittens, this is one of them, the other one was really sick and had to be brought to the doctors to take care of.

As I own my own company and it is 99% automated, work is fairly easy. I am free to spend my time as I choose for the most part.

I probably am addicted to Hive.

I don’t predict prices, I think anyone who says they know where a token will go in the future is full of shit.

Can Hive reach $1 in near future?

Anything is possible in crypto.

Also, please share one secret of becoming successful on Hive😊🙏

Like any social network, consistency. Posting on a regular basis, engaging on a regular basis, and responding to comments. Always offer value and don’t sell you.

Meme coins are awesome, people should have fun.

Doge is a meme coin, and is being taken very seriously. Many millionaires were made overnight.

Do you like pineapples on Pizza?

Hell yas!

And what anime do you watch?

None specifically, I have no particular interest in or against anime, but if something catches my interest that is in anime form, I have no problems.

For example,

Cowboy Bebop as it is like Firefly
Dragon's Dogmas as I love the game
The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury as it is part of the Riddick story line

But I wouldn't see a new anime and think, oh I need to watch that! I have to have another reason to want to.

Another question,

do you plan anything cool the next time on Hive like a dapp or something like that?

How do we get diamonds on HIVE?
Did you see this, Vitalik called us a Non GhostTown, now we're getting places! Why did Vitalik list Steem in front of HIVE though? hmmm....

PeakD has a nice tip system, not as frictionless but Hive is more secure so it isn’t as easy.

Why did Vitalik list Steem in front of HIVE though?

My guess is because Steem is more well known than Hive.

What is the state of abuse in the hive?

Fraud will always be with us, but is farming to the point that it is becoming inconsequential?

I'm not really into anti abuse now outside of using my voting power how I see fit. That being said, it is certainly less than it was on Steem but it still happens. What is more common is just shitty voting.

One thing I noticed on BitClout is there seems to be no way to edit posts or comments? You know how I always mess up the first draft and need to edit! Do you know if there is a way to edit there. That might be something HIVE does better than them.

As far as I have seen, there is no way to edit. You can hide (still visible via block explorer), but that's it.

Yeah that's what I thought, just wanted a second opinion on the matter, thought maybe there was some edit button I had missed. That just means proofreading is key!

I watched all your Movie recommendations and they were all pretty impressive. So naturally, I'll stick to that topic, which series or movies did I miss 2020/2021 and just really have to watch?

There isn't a lot new in 2020/2021 for TV and Movies that I want to see. I've seen most of what I want to from these years, but I do want to see the movie Nobody.

I don't believe the answer was ever revealed but the best guess is Ascii code 42 which is the asterisk, representing the *, or wild card. Basically saying life is what you make of it.

I vote for people I feel like voting for, I downvote what I feel should be downvoted. I do have a server running to automate some of my voting based on a curated list of users.

I think that is something you should decide for yourself. With Hard fork 25, I would recommend trailing voters you trust over delegating. This gives you more flexibility and highest return.

Hi, I love photography, I'm not a professional, just an amateur, I see that one of your interests is photography. My question is. Do you take the photos for all your posts? I also wanted to thank you for supporting my posts. Thank you very much!

I mostly only take pictures of family. As for posts 99% of the time I get a cc0 image from pixabay. I don’t do as much photography these days and mostly end up using my iPhone instead of my Canon 5D Mk III.

Usually we always take pictures with cell phones, besides that they take impressive pictures we always have it at hand, it's quick and easy. I also use my cell phone more than my camera, but I like the pictures from my camera better. Enjoy your family. Have a wonderful rest of the day wherever you are. 🤗

Saludos, @themarkymark, diariamente en mi wallet llega un depósito de 0.001 HIVE from dhedge-drips. Dice Your daily DHEDGE drip for HIVE based on 25.01826559 DHEDGE with 0.00723215 % share. Yo no se cómo obtuve esos 25 dhedge que se mencionan allí, deseo saber cómo los obtuve para realizar la misma acción, obtener más dhedge y así que mis intereses sean mayores. Me imagino que entré en un concurso o coloqué una etiqueta o publiqué algo en una comunidad donde obtuve esos 25 dhedge. Veo que usted está muy informado sobre los tokens ¿Podría ayudarme? Gracias anticipadas.
