The Crypto-Intervention

in busy •  2 months ago

THEM: Are you still doing that "Bitcoin" thing?

ME: Yes, It's called Steem.

THEM: Crypto is Dead, I saw on the news, Bitcoin was an interesting idea that failed. Get over it.

ME: It's not ded, it's resting.

THEM: See, you've even forgotten how to spell. Look, you are a professional you make six-figure salaries and your resume' is getting stale, you need to get back in the office, find some normies, meet some real-life people.

ME: I know real people, and besides I still have a "Normie Job".

THEM: How many people did you speak to today face-to-face?

ME: ehhh, one.

THEM: How much much money did you make today?

ME: What do you mean?

THEM: In Bitcoin, how much money did you actually earn today that you have access to and could spend?

ME: I don't know, maybe $10-$20 in Steem.

THEM: It's worse than we thought.

ME: Look, I can pay my Bills, I have some money and I think this is important work.

THEM: Stunned Looks of Disbelief.

ME: We are going to redistribute wealth and free the people from evil governments.

THEM: Now sobbing, "What has happened to you?"

ME: It's going to change how the world interacts with money, it's like the Internet, most people don't even understand how much it is going to change the world. Remember when you mocked me for taking the job with that little Internet Company?

THEM: This is not the same


THEM: How and When? You've been doing this for 2.5 years, how much have things changed? It's time for you to get your head out of the clouds and get back to business.

ME: Begins singing,

They tried to make me go to rehab
I said, "no, no, no"

This conversation never happened, or if it did I played both THEM and ME, and the conversation was only in my head.

I'm not ded yet!


So not ded

Don't listen to them! They're just jealous because they now you'll be getting a Lambo soon.... I meant bike ...(checking coinmarketcap again) err, a skateboard maybe...


Believe it our not, our nephew just bought a skateboard from America and it was NZ$2500 - pretty damn cool skateboard though - an electric one wheeler. So even skateboards are now well out of the range of Bitcoin...





Haha, ChapStick... Steem is going to buy me a ChapStick, for sure! :)

Stomps feet and slams will see mom will see !!



This conversation is so real to me hahaha.

THEM: Stunned Looks of Disbelief.

I get that a lot.

And not just when I’m talking about Steem. 😏


Haha, me too! :)

LOL ......



It’s almost 2AM, I’m in bed not sleeping because I’m nervous for SteemFest and the flight tomorrow, but I’m LOL’ing! :’)

Have a great time!!! Enjoy... It is like the crypto crack house!

Yeaah I know these mental chatters as well. Better we do not listen to them.


Think for yourself
Question authority
Throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening,
terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we are going in
this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities, the political, the
religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by
giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their
view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and
learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open-mindedness;
chaotic, confused, vulnerability to inform yourself.


You turn to crypto to find some tasty Bitcoins.... and end up as a blogger.
I need some rehab.


We all need help

Now imagine having this same conversation with people who know almost nothing about Crypto... It's depressing 🤦

It can be! :) I get it.

This is hilarious

I follow all sorts of interesting stuff; it's just a coincidence that all the interesting stuff is happening here.


Agreed! Great comment.

It's just a question of "show me the money". When/if it arrives, it'll be too late for those caught napping.


Me : Are you still doing that centralization and conformity thing?

That is a funny post, and so true. I witness the same shit almost every day, I also always say "no, no, no" (with deeper voice). I aint got no time for real job, those steem monsters games won't play themselves.


Haha, well to be fair Amy Winehouse, does have a pretty deep voice.

Hahaha, sounds familiar. Crypto is dead, I saw it on the news cracked me up.

THEM: Are you still doing that "Bitcoin" thing?

ME: Yes, It's called Steem.

THEM: Crypto is Dead, I saw on the news, Bitcoin was an interesting idea that failed. Get over it.

ME: It's not ded, it's resting.

This is awesome and I just love it!! xo

Topkek, I think I'd prioritise a 6-figure salary over Steem 🤔
But I'd probably invest most of my savings in Steem anyway (I already do and am trying to bring more).

My family is somewhat hesitant about Steem but they're instead supportive and somewhat kinda sort of wanna get in but they're still a bit scared of the risk.


My daughter posted for a while, she's busy... kids, job working on her Masters. Sheesh.

Yeah, it's pretty obvious it didn't really take place, because people in real life are usually much worse than that with the FUD.


It's true.

ME: It's not ded, it's resting. << lol this whole convo is just amazing


haha. :) I wasn't sure if anyone else would get it.

So tell me how the story gets into my head then?


Haha, :) I bet we all think these things once in a while..

You seem a pessimist

:) Wel, e shall see who is right.

This is good post for knowledge and motivation about crypto. We don't listen to them. This post is only for wash the brain about crypto.


I had to stop talking to my parents for a while because they kept trying to talk some sense into me about my crypto obsession 😂

I hear you, my family thinks I'm pretty crazy.

Why have a six figure “salary” that can be eliminated at any moment when you can build something worth much more in the long term? My answer back to my own...

ME: Begins singing,

please clap hands too
