RE: First month on the blockchain - A social media junkie’s hive journey

in OCDlast year

You're welcome! 😊 I would've told you that I had delegated some of my power so you could do more things on Hive, but last time I did I thoroughly confused the recipient, so it's a silent surprise now, haha. Once a month or so I go through the #introduceyourself posts and try to help out a bit... it'll be nice when we get a proper Resource Credit For Newcomers system.

I'm glad that you've found your footing here!! 😄

When I try to explain Hive to other people, I try to explain it as though it's another internet on the internet. On the internet there are games, shops, blogsites, video sharing sites, forums, photo apps, etc... on Hive there are the same things, but all connected via the medium of an online-currency.

It's very layman and partially incorrect, but it is what it is. I'm not crypto-savvy and that's how I see things, and I figure that's how it could be of interest to other people too. It still has a long way to go though.

I don't think anyone who never set their feet on such a place like this would comprehend why you would you need "money against it" that can be used to comment and how it get regenerate itself after a time! They'll probably call police on you as it is clear as a day you're trying to scam them!

I'm one of the luckier ones it seems haha 😅

Your analogy is actually more appropriate I believe. I too have scant knowledge on how it all works and I usually resort to my googled knowledge. Haven't seen any post on hive describing it in layman's terms. Crypto people generally assume (as programmers do) that everyone are as au fait with Blockchain as they are.
