$27.39 Per Day Over 3 Years = $30 000 My Hive Battle


source
I see my account growth as a team effort as without the community you will never grow.

Yesterday was my 3 year Hive Birthday and decided to add up the total value accumulated over the last 1095 days. Leodex tokens plus the Hive power on the main account plus my alt curation account plus not forgetting the new CUB's and wrapped Leo and BNB tied up. Quite a long list giving a grad total of around $30 000 which is astonishing considering not 1 cent was invested. I did it the hard way and onw which I wanted to prove to myself was possible. I used everyone else ahead of me with more stake as targets and some were easier than others to catch.

When I first started out on Hive 3 years ago it was purely a blogging and curating platform, totally different to what we have today. Now we have tribes with tokens that we can trade plus many other tokens that are also investment opportunities and of course the latest DeFi offering on the Binance Smart Chain. Opportunities for growth everywhere you look and if you fail at this now you only have yourself to blame.

What I find quite remarkable is the changes we are now seeing with Hive being only 1 year old now. The growth opportunities that are around today for everyone to get involved with were never there 3 years ago and only 2 years ago did the tribes start appearing.

Growing from 0 to 50 000 HP is an achievement I am proud of as this has been a commitment on steroids and growth has only started to become easier in the last 6-12 months. The compounding effect has come into play which was not noticeable within the first 18 months and why it takes time to take affect. This I find incredible as over the 3 years the daily average is $27.39 yet up until the first year I had barely 3000 HP.

The three years of sacrifice has enabled my account to have a vote value of $1.09 today so offering out more than $10 in votes daily or $300 monthly. Quite remarkable when all I ever wanted was to have a vote that reflected 1 cent. There is nothing worse than voting on a post and no one would even know if you had voted. In those days it took me about 6 months to get to the 1 cent mark and progress was slow.

The one luck many of us hit was a site called Musings who had a Steemit INC delegation and offered big votes. Quite a few of us who were on Musings are still around today as it helped us grow quickly. There are many names I recognise from those dark, but fun days where many of us averaged 50 mini posts per day as answers for a return of between $20 and $60 if we were lucky. Amazing what you would do to grow as opportunities were few and far between and this was like plundering the kings ransom. We knew we were up against it as we recognised Musing was plundering themselves and not staking rewards so we milked them before the delegation was pulled. If I remember right I doubled my growth in 3 months what 12 months had taken me to achieve.

Thankfully things are far more civilised today and the musing sweat shop is no longer with us. Still a good experience though as it taught myself and others what was achievable if you worked really hard.

At the end of the day your stake does reflect somewhat how much effort has been put in and the average of $830 per month is made up of 2013 posts and over 15 500 comments. The only days a post was never published was when hard forks happened and bugs were found. Consistency and commitment is not difficult as this becomes a way of life for all of us as this is an opportunity of a lifetime.

First off congratulations on your anniversary. It is hard to believe that I am closing in on 4 years on here.

Secondly, this post is a testament to how things work. It is great that you were able to accomplish so much without putting a penny in from outside. That is certainly the tough route but you do show it can be successful.

How many people, if asked, would like to make $10K a year for being active on social media? And by the way, the $30K is with the price depressed, what will it look like if HIVE is $1 or $2?

This is a concept all newer people need to grab hold of. It shows that it is possible and available to anyone.

Thanks and was one of the reasons that kept me going to show it is possible. Anyone can do this if they have the right mind set and has a bigger picture in mind. Investing makes it easier, but how many people can't and knowing it is being done by not only myself, but others on here then there is no excuses. I spent my first Hive ever yesterday buying BNB otherwise everything has been powered up.

Well getting involved in other opportunities is what this is all about. It is about getting the resources in people's hands to ensure they are in a position to have to make choices about what to get involved in.

With so many opportunities cropping up, we are only going to see a lot more choices for people. This will extend to time as well as money.

I could tell when I met you that you would get there someday, If had half of your motivation I would be doing fantastic.

But I'm too lazy for that!

That is not true you just do things smarter and have ways of working I wished I had. I see this as the first phase and hoping the second phase is easier, but will take another 3 years. Who knows if I can grow to 150 000 depending on price and numbers here but I would like to be up there at some point.

A delightful example of how you can create your future.

I think the belief that everything will have value in the end has played a huge role in the daily work.

I am impressed. Congratulations!!!

This is quite an amazing testimonial. Happy Three successful Cheers to you on this grad feat. Interesting to see we have a similar story of investing no dime but having accumulated great wealth over the time here.

Congratulations on the achievement!

And also, thanks for sharing your journey on Hive. I've been around for 2 months only and during the first few weeks, I was a bit upset about how slow my progress was and even considered quitting but testimonials like yours have fueled me with hope and a lot of will to keep working because in the long run, the results are going to show, and they will be amazing.

That is one of the reasons why I did the post as we tend to forget how hard it is in the beginning and is worthwhile persevering no matter what. The first 6 months are really hard and remember I only had 400HP or so after that time. It is easier now so just keep going.

Congrats! A long road to be sure but it's gotta be very satisfying to realize 1) that you didn't have to spend a penny, and 2) that the best is yet to come. $30k today could very well be $300k in the not-so-distant future. Well done!

Thanks. Yes having a balance reading $200 000 or $300 000 is not a pipe dream either now and could easily happen within 2 years.

Your story is inspiring. My efforts on Hive have been more recreational than a serious venture. Still, it took me quite some time to get to 6000 HP. I cheated a little. I bought in to get me to Minnow. It was driving me crazy as a plankton. It seems like getting to 7000 will be less challenging. I'm excited to hear about the compounding.

Good job starting from 0 and getting to where you are with no investment.

Many Congratulations @cryptoandcoffee on achieving these milestones. Also Happy Happy 3rd Hive Birthday to you. After reading your post I understood a few more things about this place:

  • Be ready to work hard and show up everyday to achieve big Feats.
  • Consistency and Engagement is the Key
  • You need to be a part of the community which you like and collaborate with each other. Only then you can grow and have fun in the process.
  • You will get several growth opportunities, just need to grab those on time.

Great post! Thank you so much for this.

That is very impressive. When I began on Steem in June 2017. I had the same idea of only earning my way to success but this year, as I see the price of Hive still quite low I just had to start investing some fiat. My blogging takes as much time as I can give it and so, I want to give my growth a bit of a push. Congrads on your success.
