image.pngDear readers, this is going to be longer post, however, I would absolutely appreciate it if you could spare 10min of your time.

Several days ago @steemitblog announced their Community Curators Project and many awesome projects applied to be part of it.

It took me a few days to find "inspiration" to write this publication. I hestitated for that long partly because many of my supporters and people I collaborated with had decided to abandon Steem blockchain and move elsewhere. And some of them may turn their back on me as well, accusing that I'm supporting Justin Sun, censorship, centralization blah blah blah.

This simple fear of possible confrontation increased after seeing @TravelFeel developers being harassed and insulted after their application was posted.

I strongly believe that project.hope application could also potentially get us some new enemies and that we may be criticized by many on HIVE chain. It's an awful position to be in. However, I never chosed to give up on STEEM and I'm still not willing to do so. Definetly not because of some external pressure.

So HERE WE GO ....

PROJECT HOPE - our goals, vision and dreams

Click HERE if you like to learn more about out team.

We've started our operation around a year ago. During that time, I was passionate about history, culture and the economy of Venezuela. I even met a few well educated users on Steemit from this particular country. Some of those people were university professors, earning as little as 10 usd monthly and I wanted to change that, so I came up with an idea ...

Collectively, we formed a small group called "project hope" and our initial goal was to work towards setting up an online marketing agency - which would focus on providing several number of services to businesses built mostly on steem blockchain. Community building, consulting, brand building, attracting well targetted users/traffic for those businesses (representing one of few industries: blockchain, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity).

That's where the name for our PROJECT HOPE came from - we all work hard and share similar HOPE to be able to build and secure online job positions for ourselves.

The Community or subject areas you would like to curate

That is our vision and we're steadily moving in that direction. However, in meantime Project.hope developed greately and it turned into a large community of people passionate with topics related to:

  • technology,
  • steem,
  • blockchain,
  • artificial intelligence,
  • machine learning,
  • cybersecurity,
  • economy,
  • business,
  • marketing, social media, psychology etc
    (we're trying to avoid topics related to poltics and religion)


line2 - Kopia.png

We welcome all users who share similar passion towards the topics mentioned above to join, subscribe and post within our community. Anyone who understands and shares our values; anyone willing to be active and supportive towards other authors are more than welcome.

Link to our community:

Our goal is to mostly support already EXISTING users, who has proven some sort of track of activity and strong engagement with other steem users. As much as we do appreciate quality content - we believe that it's simply not enough and we focus that by upvoting publications of those, who are supportive towards other authors posting within project.hope community. We prioritize content creators, who are willing to invest their own time also to engage in comments with others.


We're planning to focus on upvoting content published by users, who are NOT powering down all their rewards. PH intention is to support those steem users, who are here for long run and intend to increase their stake of our fav blockchain.

We came up with a very unique economy for our project. You may have already realized, that all authors who participate within our community are setting up 20% beneficiary to @ph-fund. And you may ask yourself a valid question: why is that?

Those funds are helping us to cover expenses related to our growth. It allows us to financially support our core team (5 Venezuelans - ouf of which 3 are university professors). In return, they are helping by engaging with other authors posting within PH community, bringing new new users to our community, getting more delegations etc.

You can read more details about our economy here.

Second part of those funds are being used to reward all most active users within our community. And our system has been proven to work well. Results of our efforts can be easily seen on the printscreen below (engagament rate):

I've already managed to introduce steem blockchain to a couple of businesses and I'm constantly learning how to attract business owners to get involved. Our focus will be to promote GAMES built on steem blockchain. We came up with an idea to promote those games with ref-links. Not as a single individual affiliate marketer, but as entire well coordinated team. A team capable of building a strong and active community around the promoted project.

Lately, our core team supported game @holybread with their product beta-testing and we've managed to attract over 150 new users. We consider it a valuable experience. I strongly believe that profits generated as affiliate marketing team, would allow our project to grow even bigger and indeed allow us to build a real-life business on STEEM blockchain. Bringing real value to our chain.

This is exactly how we're planning to bring value into steem and attract serious businesses to our blockchain.

Yours, Piotr

a) Your experience and background on Steem

I'm a social media marketer, with years of experience in this field. STEEM blockchain has been my passion since March 2018.

b) Any languages you are fluent in

Polish, English

c) Why you think you would make a good curator

I'm relentless, open-minded and constantly working hard to achieve our goals. Most of all, I know how to deliver results and our project.hope community is just one great example.
I also lived for 11 years of my life in Asia and I like to believe that I developed solid understanding of Asian cultures and Chinese ways of doing business. I'm a combination of 2 different worlds and it is my huge advantage.

One question - what is the view of your core team about working on Steem? They are all active on Hive, and some appear critical of Steem there.

Thank you

Hello @steemcurator01, I understand that the question is addressed to @crypto.piotr as leader of this group, but as the question hints to the members of the core team I want to express my opinion on it.

I think that the steem bifurcation that took place at the birth of Hive, occurred in a very hostile environment, which generated various opinions about one and the other chain, that is, a lot of dust was raised that must still settle.

Some of us decided to keep the commitment in Steem and we believe in the bright future of the chain, I also think that the commitment to Project HOPE is very strong for everyone, that is, most of us are committed to the objectives of this project in this chain and outside her.

Particularly where Project HOPE is, I'll be there.

Thank you for considering this application, supporting Project HOPE support is supporting the growth of STEEM and STEEMIT.

@fucho80 friend, I'm going to be honest, I'll reply to the comment of @steemcurator01. However, I am sure and I firmly believe that this sentence contains more than I can say about our project.

Thanks for your wise words-

Friend, I know the commitment you have with the project, I also know the quality of person you are, so I am sure that you will always make the best decision when it has to be done.

Thank you for your response on this.

This project is a great blessing for, many Venezuelans subscribed to their community but I still did not write my first post and because I had to turn off my steem account not because I want to retire from steemit but with all these changes my economic situation was carried out little difficult, but always all problems have a solution thanks for sharing such a valuable and motivating publication greetings from venezuela ..

Appreciated @steemcurator01.

The events underlying the purchase / sale of unfortunately resulted in the formation of 2 sides.
Both sides made mistakes and hostilely attacked each other. Right in the middle of the battlefield are the average users like me who are still trying to assimilate the situation, adapt and evolve.

I firmly believe in freedom of expression and as a member of Project Hope's core team, I convey this philosophy to all of our subscribers and members.

Steemit is my cradle. Here I was born and I grew up. Here I plan to stay.

It fills me with hope to see initiatives like 100 DAYS OF STEEM that shows us a will for change and where it is being given users the opportunity to be heard and have a leading role within the community. This was previously not possible at Steemit.

I also consider that self-criticism is one of the greatest values ​​that we have. This will allow us to correct and improve ourselves.

All the best, Juan.

Dear @juanmolina

Very mature comment.

that shows us a will for change and where it is being given users the opportunity to be heard and have a leading role within the community. This was previously not possible at Steemit.

I have exactly very similar impression. I used to run few different businesses. I failed few times. And I've learned that lack of communication between IT projects and final consumers (in our case: communities) usually leads towards dead end.

So it's very refreshing to see some form of communication with Steemit Inc. happening.


 4 years ago 

I agree.

This new initiative is marking a before and after in the relationship between Steemit and its users.
Without a doubt, it is irrefutable proof that there is a real will to change.
I hope that the user community knows how to value this opportunity.


Thank you for your response.

Thank to you for support!

Dear @steemcurator01

It's obviously very difficult question and it seem that many projects and regular users struggle to make a decision, which may affect their future. Many of us (small regular users) got caught up by surprisse.

I spoke with large number of people, all of whom I've meet on Steem blockchain. And it seem that majority is confused and unsure how things will play out in this war between Justin Sun and old witnesses.

So most users seem to have similar approach: let's wait and see what's going to happen before we make decision. Wouldn't you agree?

I "spoke" with all guys from our core team and most active PH community content creators and they all share similar view. I'm personally trying to stay neutral. However I must admit, that communication with Steemit Inc. has been better now than ever before. Which I see as a great sign.

What @Steemitblog is doing now, entire 100days campaign is a great start. But it won't be enough. You need community leaders to be able to attract those who do hestitate back to Steem blockchain. Which obviously you already know. We can help each other. It's simple as that.


Thank you for your response on this @crypto.Piotr

The Steemit Team

@project.hope is mainly focused on engagement, the feedback between the great writers that form this great community makes @project.hope unique, I know the beginning and how this great project was formed, the writers that contribute a delegation also help the new writers that are starting in the blockchain, a project that grew absolutely fast becoming known in the blockchain attracting great writers and of course investors.

I know the founder @crypto.piotr and his complete struggle to make this great project visible that will remain giving hope to a whole community, and attracting great writers with a main focus of engagement.

I am also part of this great community of @project.hope and now I can say that, I can freely navigate among other communities proud to say that @project.hope is now 100% established and recognized by many in the blockchain.

Dear friends, behind the account @steemcurator01

In the blockchain there is nothing hidden and you more than anyone know it.

Now, in the lives of many of us here at Steemit it has always been our rented home, of that there is no doubt. But what happens when to your home that is not yours, the owners begin to move the foundations of that house.
I wonder what you would do when a war breaks out where the least economically protected. we are in the middle,
What would they do?

In my place I remain faithful to Steemit, but I will make mine, a very intelligent sentence from my friend @fucho80, Anywhere where the Project HOPE is, I will be.

There's a reason it's called Project HOPE.

All the paths that we take, always in an individual way, will always lead us to ourselves as the end of the path that we take.

Our commitment as a team is very clear. Support all of us who can support, from our accounts individually with personal projects, as well as support from this team.

The change that you are generating. it is a good change for everyone. and for that I congratulate you.

José G. Lanz.
From Venezuela I greet you.

We in @creativeblue fully appreciate what @project.hope does for this platform and some of it's users. Topics related to AI and technology are very close to our hearts and we're glad to be part of this particular community.
