I have said before on a few occasions that I play around with numbers and instead of getting worried when the Steem price drops have fun and challenge your self.
I wasn't here when Steem was at $7 or $8 but was here when it was over $4. If for instance you had an account value of $1000 then and the market now has retracted over the last few months ,you should be trying to keep the value as close to $ 1000. Difficult I know but not impossible, maybe some of you are ahead in value. If you can achieve this, then even though your value hasn't grown your account has by over 400%. Today as I am writing Steem is down 17% and if it stays down for the next week or so your $1000 will be $830 or so. If you can claw it back in the meantime to $1000 you have grown but your value hasn't.'Treading water is a good way of accumulating and growing.
It may sound crazy but then the Crypto swings are crazy and it is a simple method of not worrying about the price but growing in a bear market. You can't control the price but you can target growth and where else do you see growth like that. All the other traders than hold in Crypto who aren't on the Steem platform don't have this opportunity. Where else can you grow your investment by having some fun while the markets do their thing?
This is one reason why I find it strange that there aren't more hardcore Crypto traders in here looking after at least one of their investments. This is a unique site in that way and everyone should take advantage of what is possible.
