An Ode To The Ultimate Hive Evangelist

What a day for Hive huh?

I lost track of where our 'All Time Hive' actually hit, but like I was mentioning to a few people throughout the day...Anything over a dollar to me is icing on the cake.

Maybe it's because I'm so used to Hive being the 'little chain that never got the spotlight', and we sat under a dollar for almost the entire time of the chain's existence. Maybe it's that I'm still not sure what to think of it all...

Or maybe I'm still is disbelief reading @taskmaster4450 's Tweet today...

taskmaster4450-on-Twitter-There-is-1-billion-for-HIVE-https-t-co-TbOG7jf6ck-Twitter.png

A billion dollars...lol

Madness.

So while this has come to a shock for so many of us that have been in the trenches since day one, I wanted to highlight one particular Hive community member who basically, spoke this into existence.

When people on Hive ignored the importance of being active and vocal on 'Crypto Twitter'....He was very visible. He campaigned for all of us to show up and spread the #Hive hashtag far and wide....

Of course I'm talking about @NathanMars

Let me tell you a little about one of the guys on this chain I consider to be a personal friend and one of the biggest assets this community has.

(Nathan and I at HiveFest in Poland back in 2018)

Nathan jumped on the blockchain back in 2018 and just operated differently. First of all, he came on with quite a bit of stake. And back then 100,000 powered up tokens was a decent amount just like it is these days too. Nathan seemed to upvote...Everyone!

In the days of the downvote wars and doing anything you could to get the attention of a whale, Nathan was in the trenches, talking to everyone, delegating his stake, supporting the different communities and yup, upvoting creators like yours truly.

Getting on his radar was such a blessing to my journey and we started communicating more and more. He was interested in what we were building with the CTP tribe and wanted to help us grow! When the Krakow conference took place, I got to meet up with him and share some stories about each others journey and where we want to take this crazy blockchain stuff!

At the end of the event, he basically told me...'Jon if you need anything, let me know.' I will never forget that and felt like for the first time in my journey here, someone actually believed in what we were building.

Nathan continued his mission to spread Hive to the world and while life challenges made him step away for a few months, before you knew it, he was back...Championing the blockchain and promoting it everywhere he could!

Nathan represents...Hive!

All of us have a little Nathan in us.

Because we have not given up. We have stuck with this crazy stuff and continued to show up each and every day to add value to each other's journey. So when we saw Hive hitting $3 and more today...We can sit back and thank guys like Nathan!

We can thank each and every developer, creator, builder, visionary, investor and business person on the blockchain that has believed in Hive when the rest of the crypto world was more worried about 'memecoins' than actual use case!

Today...Is for guys like Nathan!

Will this bull run we're on last forever?

Will it come crashing back down to 2020 levels?

Or are we seeing the rest of the crypto world waking up to what we've been building here for years?

Who knows lol

I know I can't predict the future...But I will welcome all new community members to Hive, just like Nathan welcomed me and supported me when I was trying to find my voice. That's important to remember as new people jump onboard after today's pump.

Show them what real community means, and what makes Hive so special!

Respect... I'm a big believer in his community led initiatives. Sure, the big moneybags are needed too but without a community around, it just becomes a pump and dump.

I’m a living witness to the good works of @nathanmars on the success of the chain. I participated in his push-up challenge on Twitter. Hehe…

Congratulations to us all and congratulations to @nathanmars

Nathan is definitely committed and he worked just as hard. Not everything played out but he definitely did his best to add to the community. I wasn't around in 2018 though so I can't say much on that end though.

That is just part of being an entrepreneur at heart, not everything will work out, but you keep showing up and trying things until something does stick :)

Totally agree! @NathanMars by his support and encouragement helped me to see how valuable engaging in this community is and to post/comment more frequently. So i started to film and write posts on @leofinance as I learn more about crypto myself.
