Hive & Leo on the downward spiral. What should I do?

stock1863880_1920.jpg

So you're probably new to this if you're worried that what was worth worth $100 is now worth barely $20. Welcome to half the Hivean's lives in here. If you speak to @simplymike then she will tell you the story of how she bought Hive at $11 before the January 2018 crash. Now sitting at 28c I think she eventually got tired of waiting for the pump back up.

This is a lot of what we will all tell you. Those of us that thought it was a good idea to buy in at the time. We're all sitting here patiently waiting for that which we poured in thousands to go back up to a decent level again.

But it's not too dissimilar from many other crypto stories. I remember talking to a guy that had sold his house for Ethereum and he was wondering whether to cut his losses because the slide from $150 to $50 was too great. I sure hope he held onto them like I advised. But, people rarely listen.

Us Hiveans are usually in a unique position when it comes to massaging our losses though. If you think about it like this there are ample ways on here to earn. Just tagging proofofbrain, and leo and keeping it in context will net you a tidy sum over a year. I don't know of any other blockchain that gives you the opportunity to do that. Hive is pretty special.

And the best unique part? Well, there's no owner. If you wanted to create your own side chain about massive titties then you're welcome to do so. Provided people want to buy in then you can be as successful or unsuccessful as you wish. Some of us hiveans have large bags to blow our wads in some of the craziest stuff on here.

I always make the joke about telling my wife that I'll be buying some ass for later - a coin on hive-engine. Crazy, huh?

It's quite the difference from many other chains out there. Although centralized (I've speculatively heard this, whether it's true or not I am unsure, when it comes to server space and computing capacity for the nodes), Hive is highly decentralised. There is no point of contact and if you lose your keys or your account well unlucky for you!

That being said there are other chains like Steem for example, that if you were to create a system similar to hive engine on the Steem chain then you better hope that Justin Sun agrees with it or you'll get zero'd and disappeared pretty quickly. Or worse, your funds will be stolen right from under your nose.

The main attraction with Hive is there is no centralized point of authority. So anyone can come here and build anything they want to -- providing the wider community is in consensus of course. I doubt we'd readily welcome an actual Nazi group who believe in 1940 Germany ideas. But, despite that, our community is usually open and ready for new ideas to push this chain forward.

And as Facebook and Twitter become more centralized, banning people that don't parrot their closely aligned ideals, we will see a slow increase of steady users. Plus, we should also prepare to onboard a lot more in the coming six months as more people find out about us, and Hive climbs to heights again. It will, as it always does.

And then this neatly rounds me back to the price of Leo and Hive and the crater we've been seeing over this last month or two. It'll go back up again. It always does. It's actually a good time to buy some more right about now because it won't stay like this for long. Especially when this is the season too.

So my advice to you would be to hold fast and keep either buying or writing. Keep collecting those Hive's because a time will come when you won't know what hit you. We will exist in a state of Euphoria and everyone will be cashing out their 100 Hives for $1000. I've been here twice now since that has been the case. It's happened twice, I am pretty sure it will happen again. Mark my words.

And get ready. Because you're about to meet a lot of new people that will be eager to find out about this hive place and what the hell it does. Because people seem to be making a mint from it.

So if you're reading this and you're an oldie like me and you've been here through the highs and the lows, do the newbs a favour and tell them the Euphoria wont last for long. The bottom is going to open from underneath the floor and swallow those high prices up.

But fear not, we get to collect and wait for the next four years to steal the show again! :)

Amen to this mister Speaks! I do a little bit of both. I keep but also buy some other stuff from my crypto, when it feels like the decent usecase.

As days like today wheen you see hive pumping so hard it gives some faith that one day we will be back towards the good numbers. I am sure both you and me will still be here waiting for that. cheers bro!

Month or two? The price has been in a crater for the past year. Sure there were a couple of blips, but other than that it has been pretty mundane. I still show up and do what I do. Price has pretty much zero impact on growing my account. I look forward to the days when it all pays off.

That is one option. Or you could sell and walk. Or perhaps sell and skip.

A lot of things you could do. Whether you sell or not, it all could be exercise.

At this point, I'm of the mindset that whatever amount of Hive is have is what I have. I don't even really care about the dollar value of it because I'm not looking to sell it. I'm hoping that Hive will be more valuable in the future, but I'm realistic enough to know that Hive could just never take off. We'll see, I guess. I've got a lot of other investments to fall back on if this one fails. I'm excited to see what the future brings, though.

Keep growing the bags. If we take care of our business, development and engagement, the market will take care of the price.

It is just doing our part in the meantime.

Yup. Keep saving it up. You'll be thankful you did eventually :)

I'm using that approach to almost all of the Hive Engine tokens I get, too. Who knows when one of them will take off. Like if SPT gets some real value, that'd be great. I have over 130k of those. That would add up to a lot at even a few cents per token. I've been buying a few of those lately because they finally have some more utility in that holding them will give more points toward the new governance token for Splinterlands.

I think that a crypto keeps going down when the people selling it is more than those that are buying it,then the crypto keeps going up when the people buying it is more than the people selling it....so our decisions do have effect on the market,so when the market is falling,i think what we can do to save the situation is to keep buying and sell less..

Well, it's not about buying or selling -- it's more about what the tribe has to offer. Think of it this way. Would you rather buy a crypto that you will have to moderate your sell with everyone else? Or would you rather buy a coin that's so delicious you just have to have it?

I would honestly prefer to buy the coin that is delicious but i will also want to make sure that the delicious coin won't later turn into a facade..

It was Steem, and it was $8, but that's just nitpicking 😂

I really admire your determination and unshakable belief in Hive. I wish I still had it.
I hope I'll be proven wrong, and if/when I am, it will be thanks to people like you, ray - those who never gave up hope!!

Still working some of this out but your article was enlightening. Didn't realise I should tag Proofofbrain, LEOfinance, and Hive in each of my articles. I'll do that from now on. Does this mean that you get to each a wider audience by doing this?
