My name is Nathaniel Narvaez ( @nnnarvaez) and... (I am a Steem-Holic, erm... no... and this is...)
This is my entry to the Blocktades and Open Mic steemfest giveaway
- I am a 40 some automation engineer who used to work for the oil industry doing competency assessment and training.
- I also have a degree on political sciences with the knowledge about maco micro economics and monetary systems.
- I love coding in python useful bots to remove the repetitive tasks from humans so they can interact.
- I live in exile in France from a communist regime and i'm currently in Asturias Spain visiting my family roots.
- Have a messiah complex and share Batman's vision (Just dont have his superpower but I have a Batmobile) So I’m called by the community and my 3 year's old: The BOTman.
This usually gets me into trouble, but i do enjoy and learn a lot every day i spend community building and working 24/7 for the steem blockchain.
I joined almost exactly one year ago when a friend who is an idea volcano told me the next big shit would be crypto-currency and social networks, so i googled those keywords and found steemit.
I joined that same day after looking at what people where doing on it and reading the blue and white papers which seduced me almost inmediatly.
A week or so afterwards I invested all I could and coarse my wife to do as much. Between us we bought about 10 thousand steem at about 1.23 $ and started looking for projects in Spanish to support, so I started scourging and interacting in the smaller ones to choose which one to support, I did interact both with the english speaking community and the spanish one and had the idea to start a live curation where spanish author could present themselves and their blogs, inspired by what others were doing in english and with the help of another hispanic dolphin (@betamusic) and the SP of the project she was supporting at the time, we started a live present yourself thing from the discord I used to test my bots and then @reveur was born.
Reveur in French means DREAMER
I didn't want it to be another pennyless curation proyect and my thing is training and assestment so I decided to start crypto training sessions but to my dismay users where struggling with basic things like changing SBD to steem in the internal market, turns out hispanic users were mostly joining because of the promise of using steem like facebook and getting paid for it.
By then a small team of dreamers was joining, now we do a daily session about photography, grammar, we teach English, discuss about literature and good authors and teach about steemit and block-chain tech.
Now we run a witness node, hosted in a professional data-center in france @castellano currently forgotten in position 120.
We have a proper curation project were we receive links from plankton users in our curation reports and also train a team of cleaners identifying plagiarism and spammers ( @bebeth) with the support of a follow vote of 51k SP, and using a python BOT that queues the votes to optimize and maximize the available VP.
We run a novelty account acting as a flagger/cleaner by a group of cleaners hiding behind @dcabellor. We have developed a parasite ledger piggy backing the steem-block-chain and using a discord pocket change wallet trough the user @banca.
We do support and encourage reinvestment in the platform by hispanic users using a BOT called @delega which is fueled by some of our SP and others delegating that support authors who grow their SP and delegate in small ammounts to it.
All this is the fruits of the effort of endless lonely coding nights and lobbying here and there as well as a bunch of users that have trusted my vision of the potential of the steem block-chain. We run all these projects funded with what I could afford to invest and the odd support from others who also share our vision.
Steemit for me is a game changer, a perfect gateway to the crypto world to the base user who needs to be guided and steered in the right direction to achieve the full potential of this blockchain.
Hopefully I will have the opportunity to meet many more dreamers and expand in detail what I perceive as the endless potential of steemit.
