I am a savings account for the children of @samstonehill

Sam doen't use the banking system any more so set this up as a savings account for his kids. He anticipates that one day they will use Steemit so this account will be charged up, ready & waiting for them.

Steem Savings

42 Steem has already been added, giving the account an initial value of $125.

Thank you @canadian-coconut for being such a big part of this.

All rewards from this account will go directly into their savings.

All articles inspired by their wisdom and posted from the @samstonehill account will have the rewards moved to this account.

There have been two such posts so far:

Banner design

Using the same Steem piggy bank you saw in the title image Sam had some fun creating a banner which should work for both kids over the years.

The rise of Steem

In this moment Steem has increased 30X since Sam started using it 2 years ago, so it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect an increase of 300X in 20 years. Which at its current value of £125 would make this account worth $37,500. Assuming no further Steem is added.

Further Steem will be added however because it is Sam's intention to post regularly from this account giving you updates on their cuteness!

...and their adventures.

Final Thoughts

Why did I write this post in the 3rd person?

Really excited that for the first time in my life I am saving money... and it isn't for me.

Blessings to you all 🌱

Welcome to Steem Community @esteban-luna! As a gentle reminder, please keep your master password safe. The best practise is to use your private posting key to login to Steemit when posting; and the private active key for wallet related transactions.

So many welcome notes these days! It wasn't like this when I started two years ago ;)

Hello esteban-luna! Welcome to Steemit! Hope you'll like the community here. As a start, here are 5 tips that we believe will be helpful to you:

  1. Keep your passwords safe: Unlike conventional sites, Steemit has 4 types of passwords. Each offers varying degrees of access to your account, so know where and when to use each of them. Also, make sure to keep them all safe and secure.
  2. Get Steem rewards: When writing a post, you'll have the option to choose how to receive your reward: "Default 50%/50%" or "Power Up 100%". As of this moment, choosing Default 50%/50% is the better option. But this can change over time. Check our post to know more.
  3. Upvote wisely: When upvoting, wait at least 30 minutes after the post is published to maximize your curation reward. Also, make sure not to upvote too much too fast so as not to drain your voting power.
  4. Know your Steem, Steem Dollars and Steem Power: Steem and Steem Dollars are the 2 main currencies here. Convert and power up more Steem into Steem Power so you can have higher values on your upvotes.
  5. Have Fun and Enjoy!

Life is good indeed :)

Thanks for the welcome!

This is actually a fantastic idea! I opened a steemit account for my daughter (two year old lol) this week, it has been approved already.. And I think I will use this account to save up for her too. Thanks for sharing this idea, it is much better than using a normal bank account! Of course 100% upvote for your children! May they be wealthy steemians in the future :)


Hey there! Thanks very much for your enthusiastic words.

Even a high interest savings account can't compete with Steem and our kids which be 'whales' before they even hit their teens ;)


Welcome.. I was thinking the same thing.. How it could be so possible for those little ones to become whales in their pre-teen years lol..
Let's make that happen, cool goal!

Welcome to Steemit @esteban-luna!

Great to meet you too & thanks for your welcome but I have been around here for a few years already. This is a savings account for the children of @samstonehill

Great idea and hope the amount will be of good value and use once they start using their account!


Thanks very much. It will be HUGE :)


This is not a word often associated with the things I come up with! Thank you ;)


well, I totally agree with @milkkent ! I will use my daughters account the same way thanks to you. So if she will be rich in the future I won't forget you brought up this wonderful idea @samestonehill ! :)
