Being an investor I like when people panic sell. Gives me a chance to pick up more STEEM even cheaper. We are looking at a platform with a minimum future valuation equal to, or greater than Reddit (U.S$6b). Let them panic sell all day. Every time they do, we pick up more stock in what is a social medial revolution. P.S I wanted to vote for your entry but I am new to Steem and trying to figure it out. How do I vote for this entry? Cheers, Fish.

where do you actually buy steem? Places like poloniex?

Hi littlenewthings. I personally trade BTC-STEEM. Any number of trading platforms can offer this service. I use bittrex.com but to be honest it works well for me so I haven't looked at Poloniex. I have read that Poloniex is far less expensive to deposit and withdrawal from , but I must admit I am spending most of my time researching Altcoins and ICO's than trading platforms and exchanges. In my opinion that is where we will see the big gains (and losses) over the next 2-3 years.

Bitcoin should tick along nicely don't get me wrong, but STEEM could explode. How many of your mates do you reckon are going to love getting paid to use social media? If like me it's all of them, I think you are looking at ridiculous growth in a fairly short time period.

Consider growth and retraction patterns consistent with the Fibonacci sequence, and allow for accelerated growth and retraction rates with the added relevance of "Meme theory" in the digital world.

I know I haven't answered your question, but I hope one of my followers who is reading this for the financial advice will be kind enough to answer your question, and help out our community . If you haven't been helped by any of the community members, let me know and I'll help as quickly as I can. It might even be a good idea for an article. I'm sure many people are asking the same question. Speak soon mate.

Hi @beachbuminvestor , wow... ico is a whole new thing to chew on later, which is to me still very confusing to grasp at it.
Well, I guess the crypto world is still fairly new other than US and Europe, and speaking of paid social media and the amount of people wanting to join, I hope it keeps on a steady pace (I may be a tiny bit selfish) and away from trolls' discovery at this point of time. haha. We have enough of those in the Main Stream Social Media. :p

Why does this post sound a little like RT (Kaiser report), @dollarvigilante , and even infowars?
I mean on the first sentence "dollar is backed by nothing".

·
·
72
  ·  2 months ago

Heh... who knows... perhaps my train of thought when I whipped out that sign was going that way.

Yet the dollar is backed by nothing. Really the only thing that makes any currency viable is our belief in it. Otherwise the dollar is a piece of paper. Decades ago it was backed by gold, but that hasn't been true for a long time now.

I also thought it was interesting because the steem blockchain is interwoven as a currency AND our creations. They have kind of a symbiotic relationship. Thus, steem may be one of the few currencies I am aware of that might actually be backed by something. Ethereum could technically be said to be backed by something due to its symbiotic relationship with the smart contracts on its blockchain.

·
·

oh wow. Probably Steem is backed by each content created here?

Actually I have always thought that the dollar is backed by gold, only until the end of 2015 I saw so many videos and articles that speaks of the dollar is controlled by the Federal reserve.
But I think a lot of people out there still think the dollar is stabled enough since most things are still being referred in USD as reference. hm.

Dollar has not been backed by gold for many decades. It is backed by nothing. They can print as much as they want, and they loan that to the government on interest. If you think printing money and then charging the governments interest to use it sounds like a good gig. It is. That's how they control the world. They themselves are not part of any governments. They just own the banks and printing presses.

An interesting thing is once the dollar was no longer backed by gold is when this entire inflationary curve of the dollar becoming less and less valuable occurred.

dollar is stabled enough

Yes people do think that. Yet they don't really consider that opening savings accounts and putting U.S. Dollars in them can actually be losing money due to inflation. Sure the amount of dollars in your savings account increase, but at the same time it takes more and more dollars to buy the same things. So it is important to know if your savings account is actually growing faster than the dollar is losing its purchasing power.

I think this is happening for all the fiat currencies around the world. Some countries now even have negative interest rates to save money in the bank. :(

Yep. I currently only convert things to fiat when I need to make purchases or when I need some fiat to spend. Depending upon the crypto currency or something like gold/silver I believe my money though not perfectly safe is safer than as fiat. We still all use fiat for so many things as it is what most things still require. Over time hopefully this will change and we'll have to use it less and less.

hm... how do you convert crypto currency to fiat? Like Steem to other fiat currencies? I know in Malaysia they only deal with bitcoin at the moment at localbitcoins.

I am going to post a couple tips...

  1. To make your words line up correctly. Create your text then duplicate the layer. Hide one of the layers and on the other use the "Perspective Tool" (Gimp). Called different things in different programs. Click the text box with this tool and then line up the corners with the corners of the chalkboard. Then use the eraser to clean up the text that falls behind Bart.

  2. To make it easier to read post a link to the full file like this:

On most browsers, you should be able to just drag an image file from a Finder/Windows Explorer window into the text editing field in your browser, and the web site will automatically upload the image for you and place the Markup code for it into the text field.
