Steemit Crypto Academy Contest Season 1 Week 1 - Favorite Blockchain Network


The Steemit Engagement Challenge has started across 7 selected communities and of course, we are one of them. This is an article to notify you of a new contest in the Steemit Crypto Academy, the first of its kind apart from the trading contests that took place some time ago. All you need to know about the contest follows in other sections of this article.

Contest Theme: Favorite Blockchain Network

The blockchain technology have been proposed a long time ago as early as the '90s until its application in 2009, as the technology behind Bitcoin, the first ever cryptocurrency and this makes Bitcoin's blockchain the first in the crypto ecosystem. This is an invention of an anonymous individual or group of persons, to present Bitcoin as a digital asset to make payments with transactions recorded in a public ledger.

The earliest blockchain networks are associated with a few shortcomings which require further innovations to make the use of crypto assets more convenient for users in the ecosystem. Over the years, we have seen the emergence of new blockchain networks hosting different crypto projects, most aimed to correct some shortcomings of the earliest blockchain networks or to produce a project with more enhanced features to make the ecosystem better.

Without any doubt, you must have been in contact with or utilized many blockchain networks out there and we believe you'd have a favorite. Today, we want to know what your favorite blockchain network is and a few reasons why it is.

    Users to be considered for the weekly winners must have joined 7 contests across all the participating communities in 7 days.

    The last time I checked The 7 communities, not all users on steemit can participate in the 7 chosen communities, for example a user can't make any efficient post in #Steem-Women-Club because I am not a woman, also a user like me still can't write any nice lovely post in #Steem-Venezuela #Colombia-Original because I don't speak and understand Spanish and 90% post made in the community are made in Spanish language. What I am saying is that if such rule should be necessary, the selected communities should be communities where everyone can fit in easily. Left for me I don't think writing post in all community are necessary. Though I believe there could be a way out and that would be every contest held in every community should permit submission to every gender that speaks any language.

    Note: Please this is just only a suggestion. 😊😊

    Hello @starrchris
    I think the comment you make implies that you have not even taken the time to read the posts properly. I am a co-founder of Colombia-Original, and luckily I understand English quite well.
    If you go to the community and check, the post is written in both English and Spanish, to facilitate the process of inclusion of all users, considering that the vast majority at least speak the considered world language which is English.

    I take this opportunity to leave you the link to my community post and you will notice that it is in both languages: tu-desafio-de-participacion-de-steemit-or-new-contest-i-take-care-of-the-planet-and-you.

    There are already people writing in English in my community, and if you go to them, you will notice that they are not without comments.

    Even in the Venezuelan community, it is also written in English and Spanish, I take the opportunity to leave you the link:

    And regarding the fact that you are not a woman and therefore can't post on steemwomensclub, I don't find that a valid point, as I have to assume that some woman or some special man is in her life that she can write a post about, in English, I should point out. Since that is the theme of that community, and can a man write in it, if he so wishes. even, the post that in that community have shared is not only in English, but in two other languages, (and not in Spanish language) so your excuses raised here, although I respect them, I do not share them. I will take the opportunity to leave the link to this community, and you can check what I just told you:

    Without further ado, I bid you farewell, with the possibility of clarifying more doubts, in case you have them. Have a good week. I hope to see you participating, you will be welcome in the Original Colombia community, and I am sure you will be equally well received in all of them. No problem at all.

    Yea fred has already told me and i agreed to him. Thanks for the Enlightenment.

    Sometimes a go my post was muted in one the spanish community because it was in English. The moderator comment under my post saying, spanish content or article is accepted. And from that time I haven't feel like posting in a community without English Language.

    Hi @sarkodieeric1
    I understand your point. But this dynamic is a special thing. And in the case of Colombia Original, since its inception a year ago, Spanish and English have always been accepted. So you shouldn't have to worry about that. You will be welcome. :-)

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    Hello, @starrchris. There are no language barriers as far as Steem Venezuela and Colombia Original are concerned, you can write in English, and they accommodate participants from all parts of the world. About Steem Women Club, you can participate in their contests (whether male or female), I guess you should check out the community's new contest update.

    There is no hindrance in the Steemit Engagement Challenge, all users are welcomed in all participating communities. Thank you.

    I want to also ask a question, within this period will #steemcurator01 also vote quality post in other communities.

    Proff. I think the crypto Academy will switch professions now, will it no longer be a crypto class?

    Hello @starrchris, thank you for commenting on this, and I can tell you that such limitations to participate that you have commented are not "limitations as such", for example, in Steem Venezuela and in Colombia-Original you can publish in any language, and I can say that in the rest of the communities of the challenge can also do it.

    Here the link of the Steem Venezuela contest
    and from Colombia Original communities:

    Your'e welcome to participate.

    Noted thanks alot dear

    Hello friend . My blog follow


    Thank you for your invitation. I will participate inshallah.

    @steemitblog @fredquantum @kouba01 @steemcurator01 there should be prohibitions of entry to the contest for users who have done power down, many users have done power down they favor the vote of the curator, this takes away possibilities to users who trust the platform, in addition there should be prohibitions of entry to new users to avoid a collapse.

    Suena verdaderamente interesante esta iniciativa.
    En seguida tomaré notas de todo el asunto
    Gracias por tan buena explicación amigos de steemit criptoacademia ❤️
