Yesterday @vikisecrets @manncpt and me talked about HIVE to about 30 crypto interested people. The event took place in a conference room of the Sofitel Hotel in Vienna.

We where the second presentation at the event and before us there was Dr. Ulli Spankowski who is the chief digital officer at Börse Stuttgart a private exchange with a history of more than 160 years.

A little regulation never hurt anyone

This was the title of his first slide. He was talking about building trust and that many projects see regulation as a blocker, something to get out of the way. But in his speech he also said that regulation is also necessary for something to gain mass adoption.
It was an interesting talk and of course he also talked about FTX going to shit.

After his presentation we talked about HIVE and presented a wide area of what our chain can do.

We had a lot of people and developers interested in Hive. I talked about gaming on HIVE and how ownership of your assets empowers you to do things that you can not do in traditional games.

After the presentations it was all about small talk and networking and since the event is called Block and Wine we of course had some glasses.
I was talking to a few people who had their crypto on FTX and now are frankly speaking: FUCKED

A few where so interested in the ways of HIVE that they asked for one of the account creation tokens I had with me. Hopefully we will soon see them posting their first post.

It is amazing how basically nobody knows about hive. These people are all on twitter and they read cryptonews and updates each day there. Nevertheless none heard of HIVE or even Splinterlands ever before.

I got a lot of questions from actual devs that asked me how HIVE works on the backend and who is behind it. I tried to explain that no single entity is behind it but a lot of people can not even grasp the idea of having a community owned chain.

A lot of people asked how hive is valued and where the value comes from. Something that is really hard to explain, especially if you are a film maker and actor and not a crypto and web3 dev.

I pointed all of them to check out the white paper and documentation on hive.io

One person was really enthusiastic and they will join our next Hive meetup in Edison Vienna in 2 weeks.

My conclusion after Block and Wine

People need to get educated about decentralization. They have no clue that the key to unbanking themselves is right here! It is much easier to talk with people head to head to make them understand what HIVE can do for them. Your funds are always secure on our decentralized exchanges (at least your assets wont get frozen and you are able to withdraw in a permissionless manner)

We are at early stages still and now we are flushing the last weak hands before hopefully we enter the next bull cycle soon.

Thanks for reading!

People need to get educated about decentralization

This is so true in many ways. It is crazy how many get into crypto and they just want to get rich quick, little do they know that has massive risk. We need to see more people screaming not your keys not your crypto as you can't be decentralized in anyway if you don't hold your keys.

I personally would love to see an exchange have ledger support, so you never deposit your crypto to a centralized exchange.

I totally would work with an exchange that supports ledger!
People are greedy and this leads to malicious behaviour. I hope people will learn with time that they don’t have to burn themselves…

Glad to hear that you managed to receive positive responses sharing about our Hive despite the recent "negative" events that happened. 😊

I did not have my crypto on there that was just the click bait. But several of the people I talked to did. We where an awesome team and we awakened the interest of at least a few participants

Toll das ihr euch so ins Zeug legt um Hive bekannter zu machen! Mir persönlich fehlt leider viel zu viel Wissen um so etwas selbst durchzuführen, Hut ab 👍

Danke, aber es braucht kein grosses Fachwissen, das Gefühl auf HIVE zu sein zu vermitteln.

What is the point of posting about Blockchain on mainstream social media if people aren't seeing it? How does one go about getting more eyes on this information?

What do you mean by people not seeing it?
The whole point of posting on mainstream social platforms is to show the users that there is another way.

What I meant is, are people not seeing it on Twitter?
It sounded to me like you were saying that even though we share web3 and decentralized internet on Twitter people were just not seeing it. Maybe I misunderstood.

I'm trying to onboard people but explaining Hive is a tough job!
People don't understand.
Mostly I end the conversation with, have a look, read a lot, make an account.

I try to go a different way a bit:
I show posts I wrote, and then leave the rewards in the frame on my phone, and most people will ask you whats that $ amount on there. And then I say that is my rewards. Thats a conversation starter.
Or I show one NFT and sos on. Depending on who you are talking to you will need different strategies. But onboarding mouth to mouth is the best. Mostly those users will be more active if they come to HIVE
