This Christmas season isn't special just for me. It is SPECIAL FOR YOU TOO -- READ WHY!

in #life4 years ago (edited)

This is the most serious, truthful post, I need to make to all of you. PLEASE READ..

understand-the-world.png

It is Christmas Eve, and I spent some serious time thinking about what makes this Christmas different.

It came to me fairly quickly, and I want to share it with you.

It is no secret that the world is a mess. If you look back in history, the world always seems to be in a mess. There is always some political conflict going on, some war, something that makes the world constantly in a state of disagreement or distress...

So then I started thinking about blockchain technology. It is no secret there are +1000 blockchains out there. Some are carefully orchestrated scams, many are not. That seems to be the difficulty of the game.

...then I realized something...

Governments worldwide, with different political views, with different political agendas, whether public or private can't hide behind rhetoric with blockchains in place.

There are people, working for governments right now, that might even read this post, who only do it with the idea "I'm here for the paycheck each week... and I'm doing what I believe in to help my country and to raise my kids the best I can"

I understand why they do that... they are protecting both their country and their kids at the same time...

Herein lies the problem of past years vs where blockchain technology is going.

  1. Rich countries "with blockchain technology" that legitimately deserve to be rich will continue to be rich

  2. Poor countries "with blockchain technology" that legitmately are poor will continue to be poor.

What is the difference?

Blockchain technologies that have immutable facts buried in them bring transparency and legitimacy to all governments worldwide.

Now it becomes it's not a case of "he said" vs "what she said" when you have an accepted and adopted blockchain regulating things...

This is a deep subject with many discussions, so let me simplify it for you.

If I died tomorrow. Or any of us died tomorrow. Blockchains and the purpose of them will continue to exist. They bring good fundamentals to real life that we've never had before.

So this Christmas, I'm happy to watch blockchains evolve. On a non-personal level, I don't care which blockchains become the most popular, or which ones I can make the most money in...

..

  • I am just happy that the invention of blockchains (like the light bulb, or electricity) exist, so at some point government will be accountable, responsible, and show itself on a blockchain to future generations.

Still don't understand what I'm talking about?


  • The invention of fire
  • The invention of the wheel
  • The invention of electricity
  • The invention of the automobile
  • The invention of the internet
  • The invention of blockchains

...they are all in the same class.. equally as important to the human race...

Anytime you see someone dismissing blockchain technology.. you might as well see them vomiting garbage out of their mouth. Don't listen, don't believe it.

Blockchain technology is immutable, indisputable, the source code can't (and doesn't need to) lie....

If you live long enough, your kids... (and even their kids)... will see blockchain technology in their text books in school and it will outlive any oppressive attempts at stopping it.

Huh? I think I understand.. Can you just say it?

In 50 years from now, those of us alive now, adopting blockchains will be historical significance that future generations will learn about...

  • The cat is out of the bag...

  • The can of worms is open...

Blockchain technology is here to stay and help the human race forever.... We just need to accept it as our own Christmas gift that we were here to witness it and see it.

Merry Christmas!


BONUS Q&A

Q: Why did you write this @intelliguy?

A: Standing outside tonight, after everyone else went to bed on Christmas Eve, I looked up to the stars and thought... what am I most happy about that I've seen change in life? I realized, it's crypto and blockchain technology that will live on and change things for the better whether or not I am here...

Sort:  

Many blessings of Peace, Abundance, and Liberty to you sir. May the world bend to the will of the crypto bearers.

You are right and albeit I am a late adopter it is better late than never!

Governments and those in power are afraid of decentralization and transparency. They want consolidation of information, hold on to the knowledge and hide some things. They would always say it is to ensure that people do not panic and devolve to anarchy and chaos because the truth is hard and painful. But I call BS on that.

Blockchain indeed is an important thing that will change the way we do things.

Hey @intelliguy,

Kudos on the article. I have to say that the blockchain is one of the best things that's happened to me this year. I'd have loved to hop on earlier, but half bread is better than none, amirite?

I saw the discussion you had with @alxgraham, and I think the term "blockchain" actually works as a "chain" linking a certain "block" of people together in a greater pursuit.

That's my little piece of the subject anyway, I'm glad it's had such a positive impact on your life.

Again, well done.

@barrister-batman

Great post. What a time to be alive. And what a platform to be involved in, so early on! Resteeming this.

Thank you sir. Much respect for doing that. :)

Thanks for making the great article
We can pay to visit another planet in 50 years if we hold our crypto we have today!
Resteemed

We may not be visiting.. We may have no choice but to leave this planet forceably (but with education in tow) so we don't ruin planet #2

I also like looking up to the stars and thinking at night, after everyone else has already gone to bed, on Christmas Eve as well! 😁

Right on @intelliguy :c)

This is precisely why I support blockchain technology - even if I perceive it to be in a state of quickly evolving infancy.

It is worthy of appreciation.

All the best for the Holiday Season. ^_^

Very thoughtful post good sir @intelliguy! Thank you again for all of your kindness to me this year and for personally giving me such a warm welcome to this technology - may it work for all of us and live up to the highest potential for all to be rewarding on all levels and bring humanity together for a positive future to be!

Technological progress can not be stopped. New technologies are increasingly part of our lives. I hope that they will bring people only good.

Merry christmas and happy newyear! I found your profile because of an 7 month old post about writting quality content. Absolutely loved it and ur still active! I am excatly doing that writting quality content ( I hope). People like you make the steemit community great!

Yeah its only a matter of time when blockchain technology will become mainstream. All the doubters will be silenced and the early adopters or believers will be rewarded. Wonderful post @intelliguy and a merry christmas to you! 😀

There are certain people (like yourself), I love hearing from... you have a good attitude and good way of thinking. Thanks very much for your comment. We're both right together. :)

Christmas is practically over, so Happy New Year to you... and together we can enjoy what 2018 will offer us both. :)

Crypto and Blockchain changing lives of people...

Well it already is !

Merry Christmas @intelliguy

Sounds like a pretty good future for mankind.

Thanks for putting this out for us and sharing your perspective!
Blockchain is the future we've all been waiting for and only together we have the power to change the world!

Even after the rest of the world figures it out. Isn't it great that we're the first generation to realize the importance? We're pioneers that will be thanked many years from now for it.

It's the truth. But there are still many bricks to put in the right place to have the foundation made. Foundation for the new world order. Where understanding, compassion and gratitude is more common than greed, hate and misery.

The only thing i don't like about blockchain tech, is the name, which makes me think of "The Box", and The "Chains" which have held many people in slavery throughout our history,

though it will certainly work against both of those things.

There will obviously be millions of different chains, but all i can think of is the UUCC Ultimate Use Case Chain,

One Chain to Free Us All,
One Chain to Unite All Races,
One Chain to Fuck Up Injustice,
Would be my ideal subject of discussion.

Alx

That's splitting hairs. The concept and what we see is correct. The name is less important.

I agree it's not that important, but if we wanted true mass adoption, my experience is that things like names can have a vast impact on the larger human population. Would there ever be a way to change it if the population of steemians wished?

I don't like splitting hairs. I like the coin. I just think that the name may be another thing that's slightly holding it back. I personally don't care and am getting used to it. Maybe i'm wrong, and i kinda hope that i am.

I have no idea, but i think i'm going to start asking steemians what they think.

The first time i heard it,
and how it was spelled,
i literally resisted for another WEEK.

I know it's not STEAM,
or stealing from STEAM,
but it kinda feels like it.

I will now stop beating the dead horse that is the name steem.

I'm deleriously tired and have been even too tired to get up from my desk and go to bed,
my apologies.

I see unbelievably beautiful things coming though,
like you it seems.

I am responding to this:

The only thing i don't like about blockchain tech, is the name, which makes me think of "The Box", and The "Chains" which have held many people in slavery throughout our history,

Go back multiple years, we could say:

The only thing i don't like about the wagon wheel, is the name, which makes me think of horse-drawn wagons

...to which I would have said:

A wheel (or tire) doesn't just have to fit on wagons. It could fit on an automobile, a truck, an airplane's landing gear, or even the space shuttle.

Name isn't important (which I already suspect you agree)... it's the creation in life of something significant that helps mankind become forever important.

(..and not the name of the device)

Lol alright. So, most simply, you do think that steem is a chain that can really go places long term then?

Yes, we prove it every single day.

Names (all words, actually) have ALWAYS been (and always will be) important, they actually have direct and profound neurological effects, due to both sound/phoneme content, and the semantic effect. Much, or even most, of our language has become seriously degraded from poor and inattentive usage, in addition to poor-quality appellation.

So, I'll say "Holy Happydays"...

Thank you Marry Christmas :)

What... not Hashgraph? Only being facetious here... as someone has stated, this will be Generational wealth (not just monetary, but educational, operational and well as transformational).

I like it! Subscription!

very nice ve good

Thank you for sharing @adsactly , the post worth be reading , i'm interested of this kind of things , personally if you allow my opinion ,my definition of homesteading is like your's and i wish live on farm and do what i love . but for me it seems impossible in the current time (sorry about it) , knowing that i was a homesteader in the past , i had a farm but cuz of my living conditions i can't realy work on it and spent more time ,i explain :

In my country which is "Algeria" , working for a day (let's say 8 hours) gives you just 4$-5$ max,and some jobs are really hard and not enough paid , so i decided to do 2 jobs in one day and sometimes 3 ! ,so i think you agree with me if i say that working day & night will destroy my health ! unfortunately that was the unique way to make some money and build up my farmhome and buy some chickens to start together a beautiful story (:D oolululu my dream lost).

When Finally i achieved some of my desires like Fenced my little garden and make some money after 3 long months ! , it's at this moment when I had some health problems that I wasn't ready for, Two ankle sprains for both my legs! A heart disease,.... and other health problems (I don't have the courage to speack about it so sorry), in short the total, and all the money I had left in medical care .

And that's why I gave up the farm and almost everything. I want to get up but without "money & support from anyone" it is difficult, but at least I do not lose hope for live! I don't give up! , thank you again for sharing this post , trust me that make me feel better & happy .

How many browser windows do you have open? This post isn't from @adsactly nor is it about homesteading. :)

Wonderful post and narrative. Thank you for sharing!

your post is very good, very useful, your post is so inspiration for me and all users of steemit, I am proud of you ... I am amazed to you, you are very fantastic in making a post, hopefully triumph in the work .. Thank you 💏😘

May the chain unchain humanity.

I couldn't agree more with you Brother.

Same Christmas tree comment on multiple posts, all promoting your own blog with a link to yourself.. For Christmas couldn't you abstain from spam self-promotion even for a day? Gee...

Counting your comment spam, you re-posted the same thing 48 times all over the place all with your link. That's very excessive.
