A hello from State of the DApps community manager

in #introduceyourself2 years ago

First and foremost, hello to the whole Steem community! Happy to have (finally) joined. I am thrilled to see how active this community is, I am still getting around (newbie alert XD).

A little bit about me, I started with State of the DApps in June 2017 and I have learned so much by being part of the team. It has been really amazing to see the DApp ecosystem grow so much in such a short amount of time.

I cannot say all DApps are amazing, far from it...but it is interesting how trends and the hype factor changes over time. We’ve seen quite a few since then. Collectibles, idle games, ponzis, World Cup, gambling types and the list goes on.

A bit about me, I’ve been in event production and event management for close to 10 years now. Events from arts and culture, music festivals, political panels and ceremonies, to now tech and blockchain summits, Hackathons, workshops and so on.

I do not have technical skills as a developer but I love working with developers, it’s another way of speaking then working with communication people!

I’m always here to help as much as I can, i don’t bite, I promise, feel free to reach out to me about your DApp or event.

Welcome @ctrlalt, state of the dapps has really helped put the whole dapps space into perspective for me. I would often hear rumour of what was happening over on EOS or Ethereum but would never really know how us over here on Steem compared. Nice to have a place to go now to get some objective measures. Thank you to you and your team for the work that you do on this, its a big help and should drive greater adoption across the space as a whole. Cheers!

Thanks @nonzerosum for your message. That's great to hear! As you know it by now, hopefully, we are here for the DApp ecosystem, and are always keen to working with likeminded people. So send missing dapps our way even if you aren't the author, this is a community work :)

Will do!

Hello @ctrlalt, welcome to the amazing STEEM Blockchain. We are glad to have you here. I really like your username and probably you can create a post in the future explaining how and why you went with it. Haha!

All the very best for the new adventure. ;) Cheers!

Thanks @hungryhustle ! That's a good idea. Could you direct me to the best "channel" to write such a post?

Sure @ctrlalt, You can use the following Steem front-ends to write such a blog or any kind of blog for that matter:

  1. https://steemit.com/
  2. @Steempeak - My favorite choice as a web client. I use it generally while I am browsing through my desktop.
  3. @Partiko - My favorite STEEM app for mobile
  4. @esteemapp - Their desktop application is amazing.
  5. https://busy.org/

Choose what suits you best. :))

Aaah I miss spoke, I meant which first tag to select for my post to be listed on. Such as this one "introduceyourself".. :P

Haha. Not a problem @ctrlalt. Check the widely used tags on Steemit:


You can choose the ones that are relevant to your blog. Since you have used #introduceyourself already, do not use it again. You can create your own tags as well. Keywords that are appearing in your blog frequently. Helps people to find your blogs in different categories. It works similar to medium tags or twitter tags. Hope this helps!

Super helpful! Thanks a bunch !!

Welcome, @ctrlalt. I love your user name, I can't believe that in two years no one snagged that name!

Welcome to steemit :)

what is the best event story, that you have ever managed and been to? and what is one of the worst you have ever managed?

Hi @welcometolife that is a very good question. I've done so so so many cool events in various industries.

I have to say one of the worst experience and outcome was for a political debate panel held on university grounds. We had various stakeholders that were for and against a new law being signed in Canada.
Our panelists were instructed of the format of the discussion prior to the event, and also asked to stay away from certain topics and self-promotion or pity cases.

Well, what happened, one speaker tried the whole time to steal the spotlight and talk about absolutely depressing facts that weren't proof based just to have a shock factor. It killed the whole room's mood!

One great event was for Moby, the singer is super cool, very down to earth. We had a man in the crowd who asked us if we could ask Moby to let him on stage so that he could propose to his wife-to-be. Moby was psyched "Of course I'll do it, just wait for my queue and then come on stage!". So, i stayed near the stage and waited for Moby's queue and brought the man to the stage and he proposed, she said yes, we brought her on stage, they hugged Moby, cried of joy and then went back in the crowd.
It was so much fun! <3

haha yeah i can see how the political debate event would of been super depressing!!

NAWWW!! that is actually quite cute haha, what a way to propose though.
I was at a foo fighters concert once in Melbourne, Australia where I live and someone proposed on stage as well. There's just something about the atmosphere that makes it amazing when someone proposes.

your job seems pretty cool haha!

I was thinking about creating some of my own events soon (even though ive never done it, but like meet up events for charity, and coordinating it through likeminded youtubers/ content creators and have it like worldwide in a few countries) So that's my little project to work on, as soon as I get used to creating content and get a motorbike licence, since the first one i want to do is a motorbike ride.

It was nice hearing from you :) stay safe.

Welcome! well, believe me, steem is always active and I'm sure you'll be surprised how well you'll do!

Dapp's world is fascinating and this is just the beginning, hope to read more about you and your work soon!

@nowonline soon for sure :) will share more weekly!

Welcome, I see you already ran out of RC, that's a relatively new problem here. The intent is great, but needs fixing so newcomers aren't so limited in what they can do right out of the gate. Good news is, the work being done by Steemit Inc atm will make the experience a lot smoother. Until then I suggest you power up all you can so you don't have to wait so long for RC to recharge.

You are using Partiko like me. Amazing.

Welcome to steemit @ctrlalt.

Welcome the new steemians. Have a great day!

Welcome to Steemit! You have taken the first step in achieving many goals here at the crossroads of cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and social media. Consistent engagement is needed to progress and grow your following and influence. I am currently working on a weekly post to curate new users and providing them an introduction to the ecosystem. I have selected your post as one I will feature in an upcoming post! I explain this initiative on one of my previous post.

There are a number of great content creators on the platform to help you on your journey. I have recently ran into a great post by @roleerob that is great to get off to a great start here on the ecosystem. As I continue to expand this initiative, I continue to find great content and guides for new users such as this post from @finnian who not only includes a great step-by-step process of registering for #Steemit but also provides great security and engagement tips as well to help you on your journey. Another great user creating content for new Steemians is @paulag who is creating community backed video series on learning to navigate STEEM.

Keep your eyes out for these tips and references to help you on your journey to becoming a minnow! It is also a great idea to follow some of the great projects being built on the #STEEM blockchain. You can see these projects here. Some of these projects provide you the ability to interact and engage within the community and have the potential to provide rewards for your engagement. For example, @actifit is a fitness app that tracks your daily activity which you can post to the blockchain and earn rewards for your participation. Another interesting project is @steemmonsters which is a digital trading card game that enables you to collect and battle with the community all within the #STEEM ecosystem.

Lastly, a new initiative has just been launched by one of our top witnesses @gtg to support new users that become very active and need additional bandwidth to remain actively engaged in an effort to build enough Steem Power to grow your influence and interaction in the ecosystem. I would highly encourage you to visit his post for further instructions. I wish you the best in your future endeavors!

Congratulations on your first Partiko post!
