For those following me, you might have read my introductory post about the new altcoin, Deep Onion. If you missed it, here is the link: https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@ikilledcobain/deeponion-these-aren-t-your-momma-s-onions
For this week's installment, I thought I'd approach things from more of a personal standpoint and what the Deep Onion airdrop has done for me.
If you've read my first few post on Steemit, you know I'm currently in recovery (it will be 17 months sober on the 8th of September). I was a hopeless addict for quite a few years and I credit my life to a 12 step program. The reason I bring this up is because that was how I first got introduced to crypto - buying heroin off of the original Silk Road. The first time I bought bitcoin, I had to send a Western Union to a random person in an Eastern European country. By the time I hit one of my first bottoms, I got scammed trying to sell 20 btc for $80. In attempting to get sober, I decided I had to leave crypto behind.
It was in April of this year that I decided to get back into the game, but this time for good reasons - to help save for retirement and invest. I got involved in a few airdrops (Minereum, Timereum, Kekcoin, URHOC, etc.). Some of them have had their moments, but I've never been as excited about any of those as I am about the newest altcoin airdrop that I'm participating in - Deep Onion.
Why am I so excited? I'll go ahead and list a few reasons:
- The community behind this coin is amazing and growing daily
- The Devs are very involved and their communication is great
- This is not an ICO and 90% of the coins are being given away
- Anonymity - this coin uses technology to protect your identity and peace of mind
There are many more, but those are just a few. Another reason I love this coin is it has the possibility of being a life changer. My wife and I are currently struggling with infertility and the costs for IUI and IVF are extremely high. I hope to continue to be a contributing member of the community for the entire 40 week airdrop (and beyond). I plan to hold this coin for a long time, but the 10% that I'm able to sell will go a long way in helping us pay for those treatments. All this is because of the generosity of the Dev team.
So, if you haven't gotten involved with this coin, I highly recommend you check it out. Here are a few links to get you started:
