I have been acquiring some more Steempower for a while.
I dollar cost average in and it looks like this:
I can tell you one thing Powering up is a lot harder then powering down!
Especially in these times.
Almost daily I can buy a little bit more STEEM then the day before.
And your mind has no trouble telling you that! (you should have waited, I told you so....).
Luckily I have some good control of my brain. I believe in my buys.
I'm also fully aware of what I have to face using this tactic.
It sucks...until it doesn't....the lowest I bought was around $18,2 cents and who knows where it might go. $0,10? $0,30? nobody knows.
Anyway, while markets find their way I focus most of my energy on the positive.
I was happy to read that China’s Center for Information and Industry Development rates Steem the #4 blockchain out of 35.
I think we should be able to bump that up because for some reason Applicability is really low (lowest out of all of them). Personally, I think Steem is pretty applicability.
Our FCAS score is also pretty damn decent.
HF21 is also around the corner and should make the Blockchain more solid with the SPS.
I also focus my own efforts on the blockchain on different things besides just content and price.
It's been really fun.
I enjoy investing in token on Steem-Engine and checking out different tribes (communities).
I enjoy using different apps (under different accounts) and reading about what they are up too.
I enjoy the passive income (DEC tokens) from Splinterlands (and currently following their amazing card sales!).
I enjoy my live radio show where I get a first rank experience of what the Builders are doing on Steem. And even though it takes a hell of a lot of time, it's worth it.
I enjoy talking to Steem with others face to face, like developer @bennierex last Saturday and with my dad yesterday.
I've been reading a lot of posts about people wondering what Steem is. They can't figure it out anymore.
Is it content creation? Is it a Dapp platform? Is it a Steem-Engine investors place? Is it for developers?
For me it's pretty simple, Steem is what you make of it and every day new tools are created to allow you to do more with it!
I think a lot of people are not used to this type of freedom and feel lost. I say embrace it.
I have changed my direction on the blockchain several times in 3 years and it's fun. If you currently feel stale just mix it up. It can be refreshing.
Unless you have a business, Steem shouldn't be work for most of us, it should be fun.
Steem is the biggest Startup in the world and you are part of it.
It is the ultimate digital playground.
I'm soon going to be a Monster Boss in a game everyone has to fight (Splinterlands), I'm a radio host, I'm a vlogger and blogger, I'm a Steem-Engine investor, I'm a witness, I'm so many things I could have never been without Steem.
Nobody told me I should become these things, but I am now.
It's like a children's book.
You can't make this stuff up and yet it's awesome.
What an adventure and it's only going to get bigger and better moving forward!
I don't want to miss it for the world.
