STEEM BREAKS $5 USD FOR THE FIRST TIME! - A GREAT START TO THE NEW YEAR!

in crypto-news •  9 months ago

Who knows what lies ahead, but it looks like our dreams are coming true!


Twelve days ago I mentioned that I thought it was very likely that STEEM would break $5 USD by year's end... It looks like I was off by a day, or a year... take your pick. Regardless of what day, month, or year it is, to have STEEM finally hit over $5 USD is a huge milestone for us, and an appropriate way to start 2018!

While it may not have hit an all time high last year, with only one day in on 2018, STEEM has already beat its previous all time high from back in 2016! I remember the excitement and zeal of those days, and I'm glad that I've stuck with steemit through all of that time. It was hard seeing the value of STEEM dip below 10 cents about a year ago, but thankfully, I wasn't one of the ones selling their STEEM for 10 cents each.

Interestingly enough, during the spike of the summer of 2016, there were many people actually buying STEEM for over $4 USD each. While it may have taken a year and a half, their investment finally paid off, assuming that they held their precious STEEM. Of course, if they've used the STEEM as Steem Power for curating, another ROI would have been continuously rolling in, which is another incredible benefit to STEEM.

By holding the investment of STEEM as Steem Power, people can actually use the STEEM to generate more STEEM while rewarding others in the process! Pretty cool, huh?

As always, I'm @papa-pepper and here's the proof:

Why stop at the moon when you can stop at a different galaxy!!

Why stop?

·
·
·

Facts!!

·

It just almost hit $7!!!!

·
·

I sold at $5. Put a few Steem into Bitcoin to "lock in" the high price. Maybe $10 is next and I sold too soon. Still not gonna power down under any condition. Long Steemit! Just playing with a little liquid Steem.

Thx @papa-pepper Keep on Proving it to us!!

·

Up 50X since last year!

I'm still figuring out how to ingest this news. I'm happy for all of us since the rise of STEEM means that people are appreciating the value of our work here. On the other hand, my small amount SBD can now buy smaller SP.

So, I'm confused as to convert now or later? I want to really improve my SP, since I want to participate more here.

Still, overall, this is victory for all of us! Cheers!

·

I'll upvote your comment to help you on your quest for Steem Power while you figure the rest out! Be blessed and Happy New Year!

·
·

Thanks @papa-pepper! Hopefully, as time progresses, I will be able to know how to conduct analysis for knowing when's the best time to convert from SBD to SP. For now, I hope someone will shed us some light. :)

OMG and Bitshares hit $0.83. I going to wealth by the end of the year.

Last year, Bitcoin crossed the $1000 mark on New Year's Day, and the year that followed opened entire new horizons.

Perhaps today's Steem prices could be signs of what's to come in 2018.

·

Very nice perspective!

Steem is great if you get the concept.
Few YES very few can POS/POW and a coin, but steem makes it more appealing with posting, curating, delegating, HODLing. You name it.
This is why I believe more should be introduce to steem as a long term viable token.
Not too forget the impact of SMT.
Keep on steemit.

Its so Fantastic @papa-pepper I Cant beilieve it !! Its Nw up to $ 6.74 US Thats $8.45 Canadian ! Woot Woot ! I didnt think it would keep going up and i sold 74 Steem when it was at 4.80 USA ! Still did pretty good , but now im hoping it stays this way as im scrounging up the rest of my rent money lol!! Its definitly a great way to start the New Year !! All my best wishes to you and your family in 2018 !! Upped and resteemed ! 🎉👍🎉👍🎉👍🎉👍🎉

Funniest thing is that few months ago I hated when I got 30 Steem for few $ post :D
Who cares about it when Steem was 8 cents haha

·

Glad I got a bunch of STEEM when it was 8 cents and up!

·
·

Glad I met you before you became millionere :D

·
·
·

The moon is going to be ours.

happy new year to steemit family a great year for steem

Super pumped about it! Just powered up today!!

Good news

·

Yes it is!

The question is why? Some people think this whole crypto business is a Ponzi scheme. The SteemIt platform might be the closest one to it...

@papa-pepper and @cyberblock you were SO right!! High fives all around!!! Whooohoooo! 🤜🤛

·

HIGH FIVE!

So is it better to buy steem now?? or just wait to see if this goes down?? Any advice would be nice.ty.:)

·

There is no way I am giving any advice about that, but, like always, it is a great time to be posting on steemit!

·
·

haha!!! ok...

I joined just this October and have witness some amazing things happen here, and some crazy things happen in the crypto space. The interesting thing I found is how Steem has bounced back faster than any other crypto since the end of the year crash. It's at an all time high, while most other's are still correcting and or struggling to recover.

I hope this is an indication that all the new people flooding the space are starting to see the value of Steem. It's trading volumes are spiking on bitshares, along with SBD. This is a great sign, let's see what this year brings!

·

I hope it is an indication too, there is a lot going for our blockchain, community, and platform!

I hope it stays that way :D

·

We will see, it is dipping back under at the moment, but time will tell.

Very exciting!

·

Exciting times for sure! I know I am taking the sbd and taking them to market and re investing in this community!

·

A great time to reinvest!

what a way to start the new year! :D

·

Agreed! It's a Happy 2018 already!

Oh yeah!! This is crazy awesome news :) I have a good feeling for all us steemians. Happy new year @papa-pepper!

·

Happy New year @polebird!

What a great concept I love Steemit.

·

Rising STEEM is a good concept!

Yes indeed Papa - pepper. $5 will be looked at as a very low amount soon. The future of steem it looks very good. May you and yours have a most wonderful 2018 Happy New Year

·

Thanks @terrybrock! You are correct too, $5 is such a low number. See you on the moon, for a drink of my choice! LOL!

Wow.This is really awesome.Nothing can ever stop this evolution,STEEMIT is here to stay

·

Steemit is the future, and the future is now! STEEM ON!

Wow! That's awesome news! I hope it stays high!

·

Me too! Incredible!

·
·

Fingers crossed! :)

To the MOON!

·

MOON! MOON!

MOON! MOON!

·

It sure is great! I'll celebrate that more than a new year! LOL!

·
·

Ha ha thank you ! Now I am happy that I succeeded :) @papa-pepper

$10 would be great, if it keeps going

·

Sure would! I'll see you there (hopefully)

Well crap man, I know we are new, but I can feel the excitement from everyone! 2018 feels like an all around good time!

·

Good time to be a steemian!

So exciting:) Who would thought blogging would be such a life changer? Great to be in this together Papa - P!

·

Glad to be here with you for sure!

Wow that's great news!! Thanks for the update. And btw, I'm an eternal optimist, so I'd say you were only off by one day:)

·

LOL - one day it is!

Good post

Just hope that it doesn't go parabolic too quickly

steemit a wonder! regards @papa-pepper

All the way up!
2018 the best year yet for steem

Hi My Friend! I hope all is well! Thank you very much for sharing! Great post! AWESOMENESS! This is just the beginning! Congratulations to all of the Steemit Community! Please, everyone spread the word about Steemit and how great it is! It is going to be a phenomenal year for Steemit! I assure you! Always wishing everyone the VERY best of health and happiness! Positive Energy! Blessed 2018 my Friends! :)

·

Positive!

Great news for us all dear @papa-pepper ! Ps: you still gotta tell me how to purchase one of those silver gold mate please!

Hehehe.
Start new year with $10 /steem

·

Today is a happy day for my people!

·
·

Hehehe.
Good luck

It's great. I hope steem will rise upto $10 by February 2018. Once it's up it never comes down again.

5$ and there is still a lot of room to grow... Really exciting... I guess the 10$ mark doesnt seems to hard in the short term...

@papa-pepper this is great! I'm sure there's plenty of people super happy. What an awesome way to start the year. Best wishes to you.

Steem kaboom to the moon!

Haha just off by the one, single day! Ouch!! 😂

Great to be riding the STEEM wave with you. I think STEEM has a lot more upside yet, with price pulling back nicely into previous resistance and turning to support.

Also really cool that STEEM seemed to have led that little, market wide rally. I’m looking for us to take our rightful place at the top of the pile soon enough 😉.

Happy New Year mate!

·

Happy New Years!

·
·

I’ve given you a follow and I look forward to chatting more crypto in 2018. Yiiew! 🤙🏻😎

Happy new year bro! Blessings to you and your family for the new year. Looking forward to Steem taking off in 2018

·

Me too, it'll be a great year for all of us. The Lord's blessings to you and yours as you begin this wonderful new year!

Yay! It’s progress! Now if they could only release the sola wallet

·

LOL - Supposedly mid-month!

That's got to help profitability a lot. I just started, but once things get going it will be nice to be involved in something that makes money for a change! Pun intended.

Thats amazing news😎

pretty cool for those have high steem power its time to power down even just one time...

·

LOL, either that or HODL!

yeah, we're on a roll. hopefully, it will reach $10.00 soon.

Patient is a great virtue. Thanks for the information.

I joined steemit since I retired and am fascinated. I am learning about and promoting to friends and even though I am still learning I am meeting and learning things I never knew, so glad price is growing. Yahoo

Yay! up steem go!

·

UP, UP, and AWAY!

Yes, it is pretty cool! Actually... Way cool! 🎉🎉

This is a good indication that steem will moon. More investors will be coming in this year. Happy new year to you a great steemina.

Exciting. I'm glad I didn't sell my Steem either when it dipped during summer and fall. I've only just begun to learn the reward of converting SBD into Steem and Steem Power so I can upvote and make a greater difference (and receive some extra Steem) It's really an ingenious, unique system.

·

It is ingenious!

Good job and luck. 👌👍

Nice little New Year's morning rise for steem happening at the moment. That's kind of nice to see.

·

Very nice to see!

It seems good news for all who use Steemit. I love it

·

Should be our best year ever, we have a lot to look forward to this year.

It's the best of times to be on steemit. 2018 best year yet.

omg this is so awesome

What an exciting way to start the year, but looks like we were one day late when you asked if it'd hit $5 by the end of the year. I'm really excited for what comes next.

·

Yeah, one day off isn't bad. If BTC would have increased, we would have been there.

Broke 5 dollars and right on up to 6 dollars. Pretty crazy what one day can change. I was trying to keep an eye on it while I was at a family gathering than of course, my family started talking about crypto. What a good night!

Going up is always good right?!? I am sooo confused on the steps to get into the digital investment. My brother-in-law recently sent my wife a text saying we need to get into crypto currencies. Then when I do a search I am bombarded with information overload that my brain is practically melting and oozing out my ear holes.
I tried creating an account with Bittrex but they are on hold with new registrations so I went to BlockTrades and created an account. Now I am twiddling my thumbs on what I have to do next.
Brother, can you break down the steps "Barney-style" for me of how and what to transfer? I really appreciate it. Thank you and Happy New Year!

I use bittrex to coinbase for my withdrawals, but @bluerthangreen just got set up with blocktrades because bittrex wasn't allowing new accounts. Perhaps I'll see if he can break it down to help others.

·
·

That would be great! Thank you

This is post is very good....you are so great @papa-pepper

Very good times, thanks!

you are welcome.

@papa-pepper Wow this is really good news. My brother helped me get onto Steem during his December vacation and it looks like this is a very good time to get a small new account a nice boost in growth.

My brother started a few months ago and he said it was tough in the beginning with the low price of steem and sbd, but he just stuck it out and kept at it.

Luckily now that he is slightly more grown in SP, he can help me where he can with Steemit advise and tricks.

Thank you for all the great articles you post. I have not been here to long, but have enjoyed some of your work so far.

Tha is really! really! great... In favor of us! (^^)
It's like a rocket launcher!!! (^

Cool is the word. Hot Rising Steem is COOL.

Nice, I like it!
