When looking the other way won't be an option anymore...

When was the last time you visited CoinmarketCap.com? I am pretty sure that you visit it almost in daily basis to see how your favorite projects perform,right?

Don't worry, you're not the only one. I visit it at least 20 times per day...that's when I am not logged in to an exchange...I know....I know...a proper crypto addict. However, that's not the point. The real question is have you noticed the number of the tokens displayed on the top left corner?

At the moment of writing this post there are 8609 different projects listed there while Coingecko has narrowed it down to 6286.

8609...this is a massive number of projects and it goes up every single day. I am pretty sure that some months ago there were ~5000 or so. So what does this tell you?

Probably that developers have realized that cryptocurrencies are here to stay. Everyone wants a slice of the huge pie, a pie that becomes bigger day after day as new FIAT money leave the "real world" and enter the cyber world. That's the reason dozens of new projects pop up every day.

Everyone deserves to dream BIG...even scammers.

Now don't get me wrong...but out of the 8609 projects there are hundreds of scams and ponzi schemes. Their devs are smart people too, but they use their creativity and intelligence to fool people and steal their money. They present a supposedly legit project with great potential but it's just a matter of weeks if not days before it blows on investors faces...

There are countless possibilities n this new cyber world but exactly because it is relatively new there is still room for scammers too...in case you haven't noticed not even 0.1% of world's population is familiar with cryptocurrencies...therefore these are still uncharted waters...

Eventually it comes down to trust...real potential and offering something that others can't even come close...


I've seen and also been part of countless discussions over the years regarding Hive and what we should do to attract new investors and new users and to be honest with you every single one of them is a dead end. Why? Because everyone has their own different opinion...others fancy code changes while others the marketing side of things...but if you ask me...

Technologically speaking Hive is superior to 99%+ of all blokchains out there.

Who doesn't love fee less transactions and lightning speed? How many time ETH's incredibly high fees and slow speed prevented you from interacting with the ETH network therefore you missed a great chance to buy/swap some of the tokens you like most?

Would you prefer maybe to be "user21143131565414614" instead of having a "name" which in many cases is peoples real name?

The only, I repeat the only possible barrier is the 13 week power down period that might keep investors away. Do you really think investors care about curves...linear or non linear? About ideal voting times or how 10x 100% votes per day is the ideal usage of their VP? NO they don't...

Just like you don't care how things work under BTC's hood or XMR's hood and so on and so forth. And don't tell me that before you invest in some project you check every line of their code and then you decide if it's in your best interest to invest in it or not...

What they are also unaware of...


...is that this is a censorship resistant platform and if they decide to give a shot to the social side of things then nothing and nobody will ever be able to ban their content and their account.

What they also don't know is that even if we don't want to admit it nor to promote it that way because there are usually misunderstandings, Hive is by far the most rewarding social platform in the crypto world.

Not only people can mine the native token by blogging, curating, playing and commenting but ever since Tribes became part of the equation, earn some serious money from Tribe tokens too all...under the same post.

Most people look at their Hive earnings but if you add up possible LEO/PAL/CTP and various other tokens one might earn from a single post then reaching $100 is doable...while prices are still so low...

What happens when Hive goes to $3?

What happens when LEO goes to $2?

What happens when alt season is finally at our doorstep?

Hive is unique, fun and rewarding too...and it won't take long before people stop looking the other way...

Especially as the hunger of those who pull the strings on other social media platforms to control everything grows by the day...

Content creators with huge followings get banned every day on Twitter and Facebook...

...eventually they will seek for a shelter...and Hive can provide everything that others can't...

These are the things we should let people know...

Have a good one people.

Hive still lacks marketing. In regards of future new users I hope the ones with huge followings that get banned won't get in here. If they were that lazy and indifferent towards Hive let them live with their centralized shit. My type of new users are the ones like myself, you and many others in here. People all over the world that started from scratch or saw the potential and invested in this project. Nevertheless I can overlook your brilliant vision.

I hope not for long.

Hive will find it's way, I am sure it will...

Great article and I completely agree with everything you wrote.

I use Twitter, Publish0x, read.cash and recently also noise.cash and I do this mainly to promote Hive.
The more I get to know other blogging platforms the more I realise how unique Hive is!
I've never done a powerdown since I've been on Hive because I believe in Hive and I don't care to do it so I personally don't care about the time it takes to do powerdowns but at the same time I'm of the opinion that 13 weeks of power downs is too long and investors get turned away because of it.

I am always in power down mode. That's because I am trying to ride some waves and buy back in lower. Essentially the only reason I do it is to grow my stash rather than sell off...and I am pretty sure many feel the same way

It truly is a goldmine waiting to be, well, mined. :-) Just keep doing the little things and more and more of the big things will happen organically. If we keep posting and curating quality content, then not only will we grow, but we will then be there to help others grow when they come on board.

There are so many things one can already do around here that have nothing to do with content creation and that's the most beautiful part.

Stuff like playing games or even gamble if you like

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

We have gambling here? I remember a dice game from a couple of years ago that shut down, but I don't know of anything else.

Perhaps days like today with multiple insane pumps and high volatility, as well as a 24 hour volume that triples Hive's total marketcap, will bring Hive to the crypto headlines once again.

Exciting times in a platform that keeps kicking ass no matter how many try to call it a stable or even worse sh*tcoin.

I love this place and its second layer tokens and communities.

I believe that the blockchain community dilutes between all of this new fancy projects, tokens and airdrop

What I think Hive still needs to get off the ground is more "aggressive" marketing. This place has the potential to do and provide much more than it already does.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

There is an aggressive marketing proposal that is almost complete. I think it's @lordbutterfly who has set everything up , made contacts with professional marketers etc.

Hopefully it will receive the necessary vote to surpass the return proposal...there might be a light at the end of the tunnel...

Im half done writing it. Should be live as soon as im done.

It made me laugh and think at the same time, it turns out that big dreams are everyone's right, and the most important thing is that everyone can make their dreams come true, aven scammers: D

Who doesn't love fee less transactions and lightning speed?

Good point, I'll consider it as a plus of Hive blockchain. A post worth reading. Thank you.

A question that only partially fits your post - is there actually a decentralized alternative to Coingecko and Coinmarketcap? Theoretically, you could also control stories like listings with a government token and finance them accordingly via fees and the like. Could you also safely build here on Hive or?

Just gave me the thought, because you listed the number of projects above. And in the end, you have to keep in mind that CMC belongs to Binance, for example, and that they are on the verge of infiltrating the entire market (at least that's how it seems to me) by providing their own centralized alternatives and pushing them through their market power.

I am not aware of a decentralized alternative tbh...

Which is why for a long time everything Hive related was displayed with many errors...maybe on purpose...

Hive can be a life changer also for the ones in the Western World, not only in countries with problems like it is now, where people in Venezuela are literally getting feed with the help of Hive.

If it reaches $5 a lot of new users will rush in, and we will see a rush development!

Time to make decentralized social ten times better so there will be massive registration. Users will not only eaen from reward but also from endorsment

I'm not sure what it is about Hive.... it is so much better than a lot of the tokens out there yet it doesn't get the love. But as you pointed out, maybe we should look at the value of Hive as being Hive + Tribes.
