Don't Sell Your Hen .:. Why Do You Power Up HIVE?

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


Like I said in the Hump Day Easy Talk post, I had a lot of time to think about things in crypto while I was away from the computer... Also, when I come back I saw a very "disturbing" thing on one of the posts out on Hive that made me think how people sometimes look at things in a very, very short-term... And if you do that, you almost always miss the "big picture"...

So, there was a guy who has created a giveaway post (not me... lol...) where he was giving tokens for free, but the participants should leave the comment with an answer to a question, or just say that they are in... I have forgotten what was exactly, but nothing special, nothing "hard to do"... The thing that brought my attention was that the post had only 3 upvotes at the moment I looked... Not a big deal, you would say... Maybe later more people upvoted... But, there was another more important (and disturbing) thing... The post had 5-6 comments or better said participants in the giveaway... So, people have joined the giveaway by entering comments to get something for free, but they didn't even appreciate and upvote the post?!?!

It doesn't matter if your upvote is 1 cent or less... The important thing is to appreciate the person who is giving you something for free... Those tokens are belongings of that person... It doesn't have to do that, but it's doing it! So, why the heck wouldn't you upvote the post with 1 click that doesn't cost you ANYTHING?! The easiest way to earn followers and friends here is to appreciate them and you can do it with upvoting FOR FREE... It will pay off in a long term, believe me! If you put all your upvoting on automatic and don't care about the people that you REALLY INTERACT with, that will not help you in growth in the community...

The most important thing is always to sort out your priorities... It's not always the case that your main priority brings the most money in the short term... It's quite the opposite... Your top priority should bring you the most in the long run... You will not see the fruits tomorrow, but you will definitely see them in a month, year...

The same thing goes for your priorities regarding coins and tokens in crypto... Don't collect shitcoins and dump all your valuable coins just because some shitcoin is pumping at the moment... Don't sell your miner token and buy the "mined tokens"... Don't sell your mining rigs and but tokens that you can mine for cheaper... Create a list with pros and cons and try to understand what token is your HEN, and what token is a golden egg...

Check out the video for more stuff about these things...

Thank you for your valuable time,

Indeed very helpful blog and vlog. Thank you so much for sharing knowledge. I'll try my best to build my hive account by powering up as I did in steemit. I want more support to do so. Stay blessed ! Following you in twitter, I'm active there :)

By powering up, you help others and also, attract others to do the same for you... Of course, not everyone will do that, but you will get some quality followers and friends by doing it... ;)

You are right but unfortunately coins you are giving me I don't know how to use them. Luv and winex both are new to me and I don't know how to accept or use it. I'm glad to have you here to learn hive more and your support means a lot. ❤️

This was quite an interesting listen/read. I personally have a different perspective. As if we look at bitcoin vs altcoins in last few months many altcoins actually greatly outperformed bitcoin, and maybe some of that can be reinvested into bitcoin or misc other "stable" coins like eth

That is my same principles with hive for me. I did a power down awhile back due to an encounter I had here that made me aware of some inherent problems currently with hive, but I still greatly believe in this ecosystem that if they make the right steps can really catapult them into the future.

So my personal plans here is to just make steady growths in all projects I am researching in and invested time and energy into the communities. I definitely plan on researching a few miners here on hive and the communities for which there tokens exist. Any suggestions for me to research into?

I think there needs to personally be systems put in place that makes it if you upvote the same person within a week or month that the vote carries lower weight, so it challenges people to go out of their comfort zones to build up the base/foundation of the network. Your slice of the pie ends up being worth a lot more if you can grow the overall !PIZZA pie.

Thanks for the comment and your view of things... We don't have that different perspective at all as I didn't go deeper about my other investments in HIVE (and out of it)

if you upvote the same person within a week or month that the vote carries lower weight, so it challenges people to go out of their comfort zones to build up the base/foundation of the network.

That is an interesting idea as indeed we have a situation that people are lazy to upvote others than their "old buddies"... And, it's not just that, but also researching for NEW friends, posts, people... But, it is, what it is... Hive has grown in a lot more than a blogging platform which leads to other projects on the second layer...

I definitely plan on researching a few miners here on hive and the communities for which there tokens exist. Any suggestions for me to research into?

I don't like to shill projects or even recommend to others what to do as I think that everyone should do their research... I can share my investments, but that doesn't mean that you should do the same...

As one of the co-owners of @liotes, that would be my first pick, but that's a very subjective view... :) It's a slow-growth project, but I think that we are doing things differently by backing up the value with our work and tokens...

I have many H-E tokens and many curation accounts all over the HIVE (LEO, CTP, ONE, CENT, etc.), but I don't have an illusion that all of them will succeed... The one that I think it will survive is the WORKERBEE miner and the BEE token (minable token) as they are kind of the base tokens of Hive-Engine...

Cheers!

Thank you so much for taking the time for such an elaborate response... that exists few and far between on here.

Yeah main concept is you don't want multiple whales or mini whales just upvoting their circles or a quid pro quo type of situation. The other side of the coin is it makes people outreach more or the trails that due actually seek to build out platform to create a good experiences for people being onboarded. The terminal was part of that help for me, but I'm sure many can exist and grow in ecosystem. (setting this maybe hard to pass, but if this system existed it also helps to prevent situation like the steemit and hive fork from occurring or at least a rather big step in that direction)

Yeah I'm still rather new not even 1.5 months on platform yet but it has been consuming a pretty large % of my waking day cause I can see the potential. I'm planning on exploring 3speak more as it allows me to be more productive. Now if there is a way I can leave an quick audio response by click talking vs typing that would probably be my layer of choice.

Thank you for your insights and of course I do quite a bit of research as is, but this space can be very convoluted at times. I definitely should look into workerbee as I've been interested in Bee quite a bit. <3

Watching this video and reading your content definitely gave me a good sense of awareness and understanding to searching for our main purpose to why we are powering Hive. I power up because I believe in the blockchain and I love to be called an early investor when Hive goes to the moon

That's a valid reason! HIVE has so many use cases that we didn't even discover yet... If we think how it was 2-3 years ago, we can notice that we didn't have 90% of the things that we have now (dieselpools, games on HIVE, NFTs, etc...)

Well, it's indeed the "safest" way to accumulate tokens that will not go to ZERO like some of the Hive-Engine tokens for example...
plus all the positive aspects that HivePower brings... ;)

I often regret not having miners in various projects. They - or the governance tokens - are worth more to have than those only used for curation purposes, in my opinion. So I agree with the points you've made in your video, including about SPS - although that'll be a multi-purpose token too, not only governance.

That's what I find even better :) Anyways, we can be both wrong regarding SPS, but for me, at this stage with this "whitepaper", it looks like a no-brainer for accumulating...

I love this...I know my upvote value doesn't count for much, but I upvote every content that interest me to encourage the authors, it's the least I can do to appreciate their efforts.

That's the right way of doing things here... It doesn't matter "how big is your upvote", what it's important are your time and appreciation... ;)

Thanks for the comment!
