Hive Changed My Life

Hive is the best opportunity for me.

Some call this being a "maximalist". Is this true? For me, I can state that I do not think Hive is the only option out there. In fact, from a bandwidth standpoint, to convert even a portion of the traffic over from centralized entities is going to require a lot more than just Hive. I also feel there are other tokens that will do tremendous over the coming years.

That said, I also see the impact Hive is making in not only my life, but the lives of others. Either way, maximalist or not, I am very optimistic about where things are going.

As I write this, some are claiming we are in the middle of another Crypto-Winter. This could be the case. Nevertheless, let us look forward to the Summer of Web 3.0.

Hive Is Offering Abundance

Hive has something that very few projects offer in cryptocurrency. We see people showing up with nothing and getting involved. Thus, the journey into abundance can begin with zero start up costs.

Many point to Bitcoin and Ethereum, two coin I am also bullish on long-term. However, to realistically get involved, one needs to buy in. Thus, those with resources are able to partake; the rest, sorry about your luck.

Hive is a small but dedicated ecosystem. This is what sets it apart. It was founded in turmoil. Here we see a level of commitment that is not often present. For many, there is a mission to what we are doing here.

Will Hive ever be the biggest? I do not think so. That does not mean it will not be highly profitable for many involved. We are seeing some pieces falling into place which are very important. Those who are utilizing them now are going to see how powerful all this is down the road.

There is development. That is the most crucial thing at this point. There are still issues which are hindering the forward progress. It is not the end of the world since this is all a process.

For those who join in with the mindset of being part of something that is going to be life-changing, they will realize opportunities only a few ever have. Web 3.0, while still in its infancy, is going to radically change the entire world. Hive can be a part of that.

What is the financial value of that? We obviously cannot answer that but we do know, the last time this happened with the Internet, trillions of dollars of value was generated. This time, it could end up moving into the quadrillions.

That is why abundance is before us. Expansion and growth can be exponential. In a complex system like Hive, that means going in a lot of different directions. Yet, that is why it is a honeypot. There are many avenues being pursued. A number of them will hit over time.

From Wherever To Exceptional

It does not matter where one is starting from. The way I see it is Hive can take anyone's life to the level of exceptional. That is how much is being offered.

Community is an important concept and will keep growing as we transition into the digital world. We see how this exists on the likes of Facebook yet they can be cesspools of infighting and negativity. Hive operates on a different level. Why? It is hard to pinpoint. Perhaps this is an overall benefit of Web 3.0. People have options and if not happy here, simply go elsewhere.

That said, as engagement increases, relationships are forged. Money is not the answer to all of life's problems nor is it the most important thing. However, for those without any money, life can be excruciating. It is hard to be free when most of us have to trade our time for a paycheck that ends up going out as quickly as it enters.

This was my story. I was in a job that I really didn't like. Comfortable was a word that could describe my situation. Ultimately, it was like a chain around my neck. Comfortable does not equate to thriving nor is it very exciting. It was still a job.

Hive changed all this for me. I believe it can for most everyone else who is committed. For me, it was the transition from comfortable salesman in a mature industry doing enough to earn what got me by to looking at the future with "revolutionary eyes". What is happening in cryptocurrency (and blockchain in general) is going to change the world.

Hive is an expanding ecosystem. Every month we have more. This might not be the case when we measure against USD or some other fiat. However, that is based upon market pricing.

What is not subject to ups and downs is the numbers being achieved. Over time, more tokens are distributed. That means active people are seeing their wallets fill. At the same time, new projects bring out new tokens. Many cite how tokens just show up in their accounts. Airdrops are so regular in cryptocurrency that "Helicopter Ben" is jealous.

The Summer of Web 3.0

This is something that few are discussing, especially since people like Elon Musk cannot find Web 3.0. However, it is here and being built.

One of the keys is that we are getting ready for prime time. We cannot provide for all if they wanted it today. That is where development and overcoming issues is essential. Still a lot of work to be done.

That said, there is little doubt we will see a Summer for Web 3.0. This is not going away since it is the next generation Internet. Few who follow this will dispute that. In fact, we can look at the actions of many of the Web 2.0 companies to see how they grasp what is taking place. They see the threat to their business models.

It is hard for many to fathom how Decentralized Finance (DeFi) is going to be woven into everything online. Considering how things are now, that is a revolutionary idea. Focusing back upon Hive, we see that being the case. Our most recent addition, Listnerds, took an existing token and added another one. Both are applicable to that platform and a way to incentive the users.

Tokenization is a major disruption. This is a basis for Web 3.0. As the industry becomes more user friendly and the masses start to grasp at the potential, we will see the floodgates open.

The digital world is in the process of being monetized. Cryptocurrency made monetization and, thus, commerce native to the Internet. This is Web 3.0. We no longer need that layer between the base which became so popular under Web 2.0. The likes of Amazon and Facebook are now targeted. Their models will have to change a great deal or they risk disruption.

How Big Can Hive Get?

This is a question that is impossible to answer. We have a lot of areas that we can target and discuss the potential. There is one area that really fascinates me; one that can radically change the entire foundation of Hive.

That is the Hive Backed Dollar (HBD). It is a topic that we discussed a great deal. However, for the sake of this article, we will keep our focus very simple.

HBD is designed to operate as a stablecoin, pegged to $1 worth of Hive. We know the peg is floating a bit although the range is tightening. That said, in an age where regulation is being discussed, an algorithmic driven stablecoin has tremendous potential. Since there is no lab, company, or foundation behind it, the regulators are impotent against it.

Of course, to operate as a legitimate stablecoin, more than 12 million floating is required. How much is required to sustain commerce on a decent scale? A few hundred million? A billion? While the exact number is uncertain, we know it is much higher than it is how.

Once of the ways HBD is generated is by people putting it in savings. This presently pays out 12% APR. This is a number that could go much higher. At some point, if it is to be a useful stablecoin, we need many more in circulation. Increasing the APR will help to accomplish this.

For this reason, I expect the payout to increase over time. That means we could see 15%, 20% or higher as a return on a base-layer token with no 3rd party risk. There is just your wallet and the blockchain.

Think about the potential here. Hive, through the HBD savings program, can offer an outsized return on a very low risk token and does so because it needs to radically increase the supply. In other words, the inflation will be desperately needed.

Just to contrast, Tether has almost 80 billion and USDC is over 50 billion tokens. For HBD to get to 1 billion is going to require about a 100X increase in the number. Of course, there are other ways to generate HBD but this just shows how much room there is.

Just think of the potential if that was being offered to the cryptocurrency community. No threat of regulation; no rug pulls; no Mt Gox type situations. Would a high APR pull in a great deal of fixed income money to generate what the ecosystem desperately needs, more HBD? It seems likely.

Naturally, for anyone to transaction on Hive, one is going to need a bit of HIVE staked so as to operate.

Hive already changed my life and I believe it will continue to do so. My vision is that, two years from now, we are in a much different position with this ecosystem. Just think of how far things came in the last 24 months, a time when we were fighting with Justin Sun and the code for Hive was being worked on behind the scenes.

Did Hive change your life? Is it in the process of doing so? Let us know in the comment section where you stand on this.

I can easily foresee a day when Hive is affecting millions of people for the better. We have so much potential and some of it is being realized. Even down, look at the difference Splinterlands made in people's lives. There are a large number who are pretty much on the path to life changing money due to it.

We can see this repeated a number of times.

You know, I don't know how many others know, that Hive 100 percent changed my life.

It was ironic that when I went to do my typed blog post this morning, something was telling me to read my own post from one year ago.

I was not in a good place. But Hive enabled me to get into a better place.

It took me a year but I am back I am new and approved. I am all in. I am 1000X.

Hive changed my life, Hive improved my life. And that will continue into the future.

And when I say Hive that equates to the people and the communities that make Hive great.

Here is to Summer 3.0.

I love reading stories about this. We are seeing enormous potential with Web 3.0 due to the monetization of the Internet in a native form. That is what cryptocurrency is doing and it will continue to spread.

With the development taking place here, we are in a good situation. As long as we keep expanding things, there are going to be more opportunities for people.

I can't say Hive did that for me yet, but it did lead me to Cub Finance. Investing in CUB-- especially at today's fire sale prices-- will change my life. However, I would not have discovered CUB without Hive.

After another year, I want to say that Hive changed my life because of money I earned after starting with zip. Last year I aped into what I have. This year I want to be more systematic in what I do here.

Money is neither good nor bad; it's just a tool we need. Our use of money determines whether it is good or bad. Most of us haven't learned to master money in the sense of being masters of money. Instead, we've been taught to be slaves to money. Along that path we've acquired love of money (never mind an unhealthy love of money).

Hive has helped many of us put a pause on that sort of thinking, and it has helped many of us make a paradigm shift into what our relationship with money should be like. It may not be obvious as we rot in RC Jail at first, but it becomes obvious once we pass dusting threshold and begin seeing notifications of curation rewards and author rewards. In that way, it's like a few scattered rubber bands clumping together to form some odd shape before enough join to form a sphere of rubber bands.

I'm all in favor of making money at home. Another thing I'm all in favor of is social interaction at home. Unfortunately I haven't seen that much when I was on Steemit (since 2016) or lately on hive.

I recall before I got kicked of facebook for saying thing positive about Trump, that several hundred comments on post were common. Like entire conversations.

It was never like that for me on Steemit. I haven't seen much of it on Hive either.

I remain hopeful and optimistic.

I read science fiction. When I was younger I read Heinlein, Azimov, Clarke, Doc Smith and all the masters. Unfortunately they all died. Then I begin reading Ian Banks (he died too) Weber and a host of authors mostly published by Baen Books.

Then catastrophe happened, as far a book buying is concerned, I retired. My discrentionary income (book buying money) shrunk. I mean REALLY shrunk. I used to spend a hundred dollars on a visit to a bookstore. Now I spend ten dollars a month on Kindle Unlimited. I still manage to find a lot of books to read but the overall quality has declined. It takes a while to find a good one but I keep trying.

It's been said that each of us is the average of the 5 people around whom we spend most of our time.

If we limit that calculation to people online, then each of us here is the average of the 5 people we encounter online in general.

If most of our time online is spent on Hive, then that's an improvement over who we found on the Big Tech platforms where we encountered more grief than joy.

Money helps, too, but it's only a part of it. As owners of Hive accounts and stakeholders thanks to HP, we treat each other not only as fellow Hivers but also as fellow business owners. Even if we have differing opinions and ideas, we respect each other enough to let others be to go their own way as they let us go ours. This brings us peace of mind, and that's more valuable than money.

For many, there is a mission to what we are doing here. — classical case of a precious stone found in midst of rubbles.

I really do learn a lot from your articles and comments. Many times, you've open my eyes to stuffs I never knew and equally made me unlearn to relearn stuffs. I hope someday, I can get to your level of knowledge and even beyond. I'm still in the learning process though.

Speaking of Hive, it has changed my overall life. Some days ago, I shared a post about a friend who messaged me and started advising me to begin job hunting being that I'm almost rounding-off my first-degree programme. Little did he know that, with Hive, I have a job already. So, I just smiled over it.

I know I'm not earning big on Hive but what I have been earning so far, from just sharing my unpopular opinions is what some people don't get for working tirelessly every month. Why I would I abandon such a better place and begin applying for jobs you may not even find. Hive is a life saver!

The amazing thing about Hive that makes it more attractive is being able to build something from nothing. Anyone can just create wealth from Hive. Yes, it's not that simple but the possibility is what endears me to Hive.

I can't write it all but I'm always grateful for Hive and crypto in general. It's given me freedom.

Very interesting perspective. I agree with your point about the positive influence Hive can have on individuals and on your perspective on stable paycheck Vs enjoyable experience.

I think to really drive user numbers further, we still need to learn some things from Web 2.0 like Twitter and Facebook on what kind of content is being displayed for users based on different search criteria and saved preferences to further utilize our reputation system for this.

But we are overal on a very promising trajectory towards a Summer 3.0😀

yes and now ask how many people live has it changed? all i see is the same guys making money to quit their jobs posting everyday.

i created bitcoin myk to make it possible for everyone to make money on hive. not just the same 5 guys. Also keep in mind if they want to keep you from making money they can. you not exactly free to make money on your own merit like how we do on bitcoin myk. where nobody can stop you. it's merit only. on here if enough of the big guys making money wanna stop you.. or if even they wanna keep it so they can make money only and don't want you to. they can do it.

it's not so much hive but the applications. like the blogging applications. but there is nothing else really besides that.. with the exception of splinterlands.. but alot of people not gamers.

So that's nice some of the favored people can make money. is that the average person though? on bitcoin myk it's totally attention value. if you apply yourself you can make money and nobody can take it from you. here they can do whatever they want with their influence over you.

So exactly how many people lives have been changed? is it just a few? is it 5? how many users we got? in the 6 years this system has been up in running is it performing on par with other chains? or is it just the same guys making a few bucks always boosting it up? i'd like to know the answers to that.

"no one can take it away from you."
That's a sore point. I was extremely active on Steemit...until the vandals struck. I was extremely depressing to have all the money I made on a post be deleted by downvotes. I must have annoyed someone, free speech anyone, because at the end I couldn't post anything without it being inundated by downvotes. That got old pretty quick so I went away. So far I don't see that on HIVE, but unfortunately some of my old friends from Steemit say it still exists.

I haven't heard of myk. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Yes and there lies the problem. So there are good things about hive. how do you keep the good and remove the bad. we now have second layer tokens that can assist and do alot to correct the problems.

Their argument is the money on content is not yours until it's paid out and in a way that lacks democracy one person can come along and take from you what you feel is earned.

So bitcoin myk has created a system in the hive ecosystem that hopefully corrects this problem. here is some resources on how it does that

It definitely changed my life too, on many levels and I actually wrote a short post about this last month.

Also, I totally agree on the importance that the HBD savings can have in our ecosystem. At 12%, it is already on par with Nexo highest tier for instance, without needing to hold an additional token (except for a bit of HP) and without having to trust a 3rd party.

I really dont think people realize how big that is. HBD savings checks a lot of boxes and is truly in line with the "not your keys not your crypto". Being on the base layer of a chain run by 20 consensus witnesses and another 80 or so non-consensus is very powerful.

Personally I think the fixed income market holds great potential for Hive.

I plan to slowly grow my HBD position this year. The only risk I see is that because the volume is quite low, you ll need to make a conversion to sell, and a big price change during the 3.5 days could hurt.

I have a feeling we will see the liquidity issue resolved by the end of the year. We are going to see some use cases arising which means there is going to be a lot more HBD to hit market.

For this reason I believe we will see an increase in the interest rate to get more produced naturally.

Hive is indeed a life changer, I'm bearily upto 4month on the blockchain, but what I've earn in those period is beyond what I'll earn if am still at my former place of work, Though I've made a withdrawal since I joined, but that's because I've this believe that hive will skyrocket pretty soon, and I won't want to bit fingers in regret for selling at the wrong time.
Thanks for sharing this Masterpiece, I look forward to expanding my knowledge about hive, blockchain games and Crypto generally.

The zero start up cost is why ane new community, project or startup endeavor can begin on Hive and can harvest the power of established communities and users from here. Thus it can bring an advantage from the gecko as it opens up to an existing user base that is hungry to invest in promising projects. I simply cannot keep pace with everything on Hive and in how many projects I want to get involved in...

It is pretty amazing to think about how far we have come in just a small amount of time. I think some of that can be attributed to the overall acceptance of crypto, but more so I think it speaks to the power of the community and the dedication of the developers. I never would have guess four years ago when I started that Hive would be this close to becoming big-time!

That monetization won't arrive on its own.

  • Make ZERO comments, you earn ZERO HIVE, therefore you make ZERO HP and ZERO HBD.
  • Make ZERO upvotes, clock to reaching dusting threshold stays frozen. Once again, ZERO HIVE/HP/HBD.
  • ZERO engagement guarantees ZERO upvotes. You know the rest.

It may take a while with even minimal engagement (say, 10 comments a day along with 10 upvotes a day), but the day will come when the rewards arrive. Do nothing, and you get nothing.

For this reason, engagement is vital for account growth and retention.

Crypto winter...

I've considered this, and I think that if we are in another it shouldn't last more than a year and a half, likely less, since everything seems to double, or half, at such intervals in this space.

"The regulators are impotent against it."

I love this so much, but I don't think it's impotence. I think it's obsolescence. Obviously the latter leads to the former, but obsolete tends to fade away over time whereas impotence can linger around and fuck shit up indefinitely so I'm leaning optimistic. !LOL

And Hive hasn't just changed my life. It's changed me. I've learned to see perspectives here that have changed the way I view almost everything. I make better financial decisions, now. I gained the ability to see things from farther out and take advantage of it.

Honestly, I've fucking levelled up. I'm not just dicking around with cantrips anymore. I'm a full on wizard... like a superhero.

And not just any super hero. I'm a hero of my own design. Who, TELL ME WHO, gets to pick their own superpowers? No one in either popular cinematic universe that I know of. Hive Power is more than just stake in the network. It's stake in oneself.
DANG! I made myself a little weepy. I gotta go.

Honestly, I've fucking levelled up.

This is what want for each of us: to be better in as many ways as we can be. It can happen in many ways even for us. But inmany cases, it began with Hive

And not just any super hero. I'm a hero of my own design. Who, TELL ME WHO, gets to pick their own superpowers?

Kal-El-- THE Superman-- would just be Kal-El had he stayed on Krypton (never mind the short lie span he would have had). Only the yellow sun Sol gave him the powers which made him Superman on Earth. He didn't choose his superpower.

Even if we consider "being rich" a superpower, people like Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne were born into wealth. These guys didn't choose their superpower, either.

Can it be said that Hive Power is a superpower? I won't say that today, but maybe next year I can. But Hive Power benefits from something else which is a superpower: the power of compounding interest. Even Albert Einstein knew this, and he wasn't known to be some stupid little man (a player, yes; a stupid man, no).

I wasn’t saying rich is my super power. I’m not rich by a long shot. Not in money at least. I do have a wealth of useless knowledge 😁.

I was pointing out that finding my real life flaws and mocking them here as super powers has indeed transformed them into super powers. Sure, they’re only effective here but the results still have real world impact. The time I spend here projecting lunacy pays a bill from time to time.

Best post of the year and the year just started. Hive is a blessing to me, I found Hive in my lowest point of life. Thanks to Hive I have a reason to wake up each day set a goal and achieve it. The joy of interacting with people, engaging with them and earning from it is something that still sounds like a fairy to me.

For this reason, I expect the payout to increase over time. That means we could see 15%, 20% or higher as a return on a base-layer token with no 3rd party risk. There is just your wallet and the blockchain.

I can’t imagine how much fun I will have when this happens, imagine how much fun am having with 12% APR currently, now make that 15% or 20%.

For some people, the destination is all they care about, so they will do whatever they need to do to get there as quickly as possible. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it comes at a cost. What that cost is will depend on the person.

So on reaching the destination, what then?

For others, the journey is far more interesting than the destination:

  • Who do we meet along the way?
  • What do we learn on this journey?
  • How do we grow and develop during this journey?
  • What adjustments or changes do we make along the way?
  • Can we keep the journey going?

It may take us a while to reach our destination, but then we go on another journey and begin the process all over again.

For those who join in with the mindset of being part of something that is going to be life-changing, they will realize opportunities only a few ever have.

This in particular really resonated with me. When I first joined Hive, I was skeptical about it because of all the crypto stuff that I still didn't understand. Now, having been part of a community whose purpose is greater than just "rise and grind and squeeze everyone for all they're worth" like so many Web 2.0 platforms are these days... I am learning more and more that Hive is something truly special.

Even if I never "make it big" on Hive, the value I get from it is more than just a little bit of crypto here and there - it is the assurance that I'm an active part of something bigger than myself, something bigger than a soulless corp, an ecosystem built on valuing diversity and freedom of speech and the exchange of ideas and worldviews for the purpose of growing together as individuals and as a community.

I came for the potential to earn (and still hope to do that, of course), but I stayed for the community and its vision. Can't imagine going anywhere else.

hive has changed so many things for me from the way I focus on projects and how I break things down. I have had to think out the box with my business and Hive has enabled me to tackle problems differently just by changing things up. Knowing how to grow an account is not easy on Hive and is the most challenging thing I have ever done and is still my pet project. Financially yes when the time is right and comfortable at where I am and still have another year before I plan new targets. This is not a get rich quick scheme and takes years of dedication.

Layer 2 is where I began to see the changes to my account and to my growth here both as a Leo and as a Hiver. When Splinterlands began to carry Hive on its back in August 2021 I realized that dApps were going to take Hive places where Hive at base layer could not. Either way, Hive was going to benefit, and that meant we would all benefit.

I don't have very large accounts. However, they do allow me to automate some earnings via leasing and curation trails. Any interaction and content creation is added income to the autopilot. I can definitely see that in a few years my situation will be much different. Even if my HIVE income remains the same, the price of HIVE will have increased, making the HBD equivalent greater. All of this is building on itself and compounding.

My life has not yet changed. But, my future life is prosperous thanks in part to Hive. It is difficult to be excited with what I have now. However, a little bit of extrapolation can show exciting times ahead.

HBD, like UST and Terra, has a great deal of potential to increase the value of Hive.

I have jumped into crypto at a very early stage and before that I dealt with some other centralized virtual currencies. I run some faucets and really enjoyed the fact to be able to send coins to somebody simply with a wallet address. Then I discovered this blockchain and what I liked is that I could do so many things without coding things. I created my own tokens and started some tokenomics experiments. The more time passes, the more time I pass on hive. It was a hobby at first but now I see it as a real plan B also financialy speaking. To say that hive has changed my life would be an understatement. I would say hive has become a big part of my life :-)

It sure was nice hitting f5 and watching the number go up.

Hive is a great opportunity and it can increase your wealth dramatically. I am also looking forward for Web3.0. It is like during the Gold Rush - and we are part of it. Maybe not all of us, will be millionaires in some years, but I guess, that Hive can help us to accumulate some wealth. Maybe just some little, but who knows.
Consistent work pays off.
At the time of me writing this comment 857 people liked this post and got the payout to 126 Hive. Not everyone is getting this much, but even myself I am sometimes getting a few buck out of a post.

So yes, it is possible for everyone. The dream of Web 3.0 can be your dream. You can do it, if you are constantly working on improving yourself and producing some great work. In time your Hive Power grows and so will your payouts. With great work, great votes will follow.

And what seems like not a lot right now, can also be big money in some time, if the Hive price will rise.

I am really bullish on Hive and what is going to come.

Thank for doing this amazing post and keep up the great work!

Cheers,
@andy-plays

Hive has something that very few projects offer in cryptocurrency. We see people showing up with nothing and getting involved. Thus, the journey into abundance can begin with zero start up costs.

Many point to Bitcoin and Ethereum, two coin I am also bullish on long-term. However, to realistically get involved, one needs to buy in. Thus, those with resources are able to partake; the rest, sorry about your luck.

SO MUCH THIS. This is what I'm always trying to tell people. I've never been able to buy in, since I struggle with the basics of survival, but I've earned on Hive and started from zero. I've even withdrawn several times to help with rent or groceries or bills, and still my account is growing (I do try and do that as infrequently as I can, because I really want my account to grow). People only seem to know about "the big coins" like BTC and ETH and so think all crypto is the same, and I'm in there telling them that no, it isn't. And not only my "rich nation poor" self can make my financial situation better, but also people who are way poorer than me are helping themselves with just their smart phone to post here and building their futures, too. If people who don't even have reliable utilities can start building here, then really that's proof that this is a system that works for all. That's why I believe in Hive.

As you say, everything may not be perfect, but it's a process - and we will bicker and argue about it with the passion of people who really give a sh*t until we get it right. That gives me hope, too.

Crypto winter is for short term traders. People that are interested in the tech being developed and what it can do, will over look anything the price will throw at them to utilize the time to get even deeper into the tech and thays where the fun is

Hive did change my life. While taking initiative to physically travel, meet and visit other countries, I met many who are currently still residing on this blockchain. I can't describe how we are a very special flock of people with a very specific understanding, when grasping the concepts of creating value and respecting ownership. But I can write here, that it takes the very few that make the difference, because our consensus creates a standard. No one willing to risk the reputation they work on, I have a high level of trust in many I dealt with. I sent HBD to someone in advance for a service for the common good of the hive Network recently and I was able to appreciate it many additional ways. When it comes to content such as art vs HP size, I still see a lot of room for cleansing that will inevitably take place, as clearly visible in the past few months. We will also see this as power is being delegated to better content curators. In a dPoS system not all actors with huge wallet sizes have their best interest at heart. At hive the majority does. I still must admit, I think some of the imperiousness of big accounts deserves my sympathy for not understanding this. Even if one assumes certain rights according to ones stake, I rest assured that only good actors prevail in the long run. @dan might have been lucky because of a community metamorphosis that turned into hive? Not everyone who has a lot of money necessarily produces a lot of value and great original content. I strongly believe hive is the dPoS exception where a community can make a difference and not end up as a social class system, based on reputation and voting power due to what is powered up? I feel it moulds a narrative?

On a broader scale I would never dare to express any discontent with any of the above. Hive changed my life for the better. I read amazing content here, learn every day and so many such as you have become my best teachers. For this I am profoundly grateful - @yangyanje

Can confirm, Hive is lightyears ahead of the crypto game. It was always about giving a chance to those that never got it and Hive is the ONLY blockchain that enables this.

While others are still debating what Web 3.0 will look like Hive gives you a chance to try it out right now. It's already here.

Kinda insane when you think about it.

Well, hive is changing lives. Coming from a poor developing country, it is an important gift to us. A gift that can help me break financial barriers and also help others.

Yes, as you stated money isn't everything. However, money for a Nigerian, is everything lol.

Am new here and am still finding my way around, but according to my Hivestats,in the last 30 days, I've made 6-7x of my country's monthly wage. That's crazy, considering that I had this hive account being inactive for years and i was struggling with my chess career and chess coaching job.

I find this article very interesting as it covers so many areas to hive. Thanks for taking your time to share this.

Hive definitely changed my life for the better! I know that people are always looking to “get in early” with various products and projects and although I was a year behind the launch of steem, I am glad that I got in when I did! I don’t know exactly how hive will grow but I know it will grow and mature as well as hopefully bring in all kinds of new users.

I’m glad for all of the different learning opportunities I’ve had on here! That’s one of my favorite things, reading and learning something every day of the week.

Quite interesting post which conducts to imagine what the future could be. I am too young in this environment to have a reliable idea regarding how Hive may possibly change my life. Feelings only. I am really convinced on the tremendous potential of web 3.0 through to social and eco impacts but I wonder also how many people will be excluded from this progress.

That's a very powerful and encouraging testimony!

I think so, yes, Hive is in the process of changing mine. Until now, I never spent yet a single cent from my pocket. I am just about to start the first day of March with my $100.00 savings. As I already shared in one of my posts, it was never part of my intention to be here on Hive. It's like I'm running after a common girl, but I found a Miss Universe! Sorry for the analogy. Don't mean to offend, but that's the closest illustration I could think of to describe my experience.

Really very challenging to catch up with the development that is going on in Hive. You can see it here and there. I am just beginning to see few of them last month. I never though that there is a treasure chest before me, and yet I am still looking for opportunities elsewhere.

While you're talking about quadrillions, I am envisioning that millionaires on Hive will become future billionaires. How about a thousandaire here? ^_^

. . . as engagement increases, relationships are forged. Money is not the answer to all of life's problems nor is it the most important thing. However, for those without any money, life can be excruciating.

I like that! That's the kind of perspective that we really need towards freedom, peace and prosperity!

Hive is an expanding ecosystem. Every month we have more.

Though the size of growth varies, but none is left out.

What is not subject to ups and downs is the numbers being achieved. Over time, more tokens are distributed. That means active people are seeing their wallets fill. At the same time, new projects bring out new tokens. Many cite how tokens just show up in their accounts. Airdrops are so regular in cryptocurrency that "Helicopter Ben" is jealous.

Ben thought he has no competition. Imagine, many Hivers like me didn't know how those tokens show up in our wallets. How much more now that we know?

. . . and the masses start to grasp at the potential, we will see the floodgates open.

I !LUV the sound of the rushing waters!

Hey, buddy!

Are you okay? I hope so.
Hmm, I got here it's going to be two months.
And I'm very excited about my progress.
I am involved in projects in two communities: Music Hive and Skate Hive.
Already managing to reap some fruits of my labor.
I was very inspired by your text!
I know what we're doing here is great! I trust hive's success!

And thanks for the words,

just reblogged!

I can truly say that Hive changed my life for many reasons, 1 is the monetary reason, there is no way to deny that Hive doesnt have opportunities to grow in its platform and outside, as I can say that one of the reason I could move to a better country was because of the income I was having in Hive.

Other reason was because I started as a writter and I found creativity when writting in here, so its easier for me to get ideas to create my content and its something I can use in some other job as well.

I got many investment ideas because of what I read in Leo Finance and I also started to be motivated to learn about coding because of what I see the developers can do with blockchain.

I can also say that I know many other stories like mine, so it can be that there are plenty of options, but I´m commited to hive because of what it dit to me in these 2 years.

I'm sure hive has changed many people's lives, just like yours has changed mine too. I was in a state of near depression, but I started posting, I started to put out my lyrical side and I met so many nice people that little by little my days started to shine again.

#hive is not just crypto or tokens, I think there is something more, it has feeling, companionship and joy!

It's in the process! I've certainly had a lot of fun, and made a few pennies in the process. It opens up a different way of living for all. Fascinating to see what transpires over the coming years!

This is the most beautiful thing about Hive. All you need is a brain and some kind of internet connection.

Hive is the best opportunity for me.

Some call this being a "maximalist".

Hive already changed my life and I believe it will continue to do so. My vision is that, two years from now, we are in a much different position with this ecosystem.

Amazing post. You just penned my mind. I'm all in for Hive and the possibilities here are just tremendous, if at all, we can imagine it.
