Hi Steemit family!
On January 1st, 2018, I committed to promote the Steemit platform here in Spain! Steemit represents to me the best way to exchange ideas without censorship and to create financial independence. My current goal is to continue to develop this incredible platform and especially to make things more real. That's why I organize meetings in Barcelona with Steemians from all over the world!
Last night, it was my 7th STEEMIT MEETING in Barcelona!
For those who have not had the chance to participate, I will narrate you the evening as if you were there! ^^
Our group of 6 Steemians met at the "Floripa" at 7 pm last night.
I think it's the best place we've had a Steemit meeting so far!
Floripa is a cocktail bar and also a vegan restaurant. Thus, we were able to drink delicious cocktails and eat good vegan dishes while talking about the future of Steemit!
The restaurant is warm and the decor is colorful! It is inspired by the colors that can be found in Brazil but also with a very nice retro style. The Floripa's staff is just adorable!
The meeting place is really important, especially when people speak different languages. Everyone must be able to understand each other =). And I think it was perfect because at 7 pm the Spanish people are not out yet. It's way too early for them =D
I will give you a little presentation of each participant and their journey on Steemit.
THE BEST STEEMIT TEAM EVER !!!
This young Italian expatriate comes from Napoli and knew Steemit through a Facebook user who only published articles about the platform. Steemit caught his attention for the simple fact of being able to make money by writing articles.
The Steemit community gave him the opportunity to meet interesting people and he was able to produce quality content in Italian and English. He was also very interested in Scorum because he is a big fan of football and he is now a Witness of the platform.
She is the Maurizio's girlfriend. She is from Italy too and has been living in Barcelona for several years. She works in the fashion field, especially shoes. She discovered Steemit at the same time as Maurizio in March 2018. She has also started to dig into Scorum.
I met him for the second time. Invited by @toofasteddie (thanks to him).
He is a businessman passionate about crypto-currencies. He shared with us information on the interesting investments he has made in recent years and his vision about the future of the cryptocurrencies. He took the time to explain to me how to use the bots on Steemit. I learned a lot from him and I hope to see him again at the next meeting! =)
He is the creator of the famous blocktivity website that everyone is talking about. I invite you to give it a look =).
Apparently, he is also working on a new open source version 2.0 that promises to be at very least interesting!
He shared with us his passion for crypto-currencies and especially for projects around Steem and Bitshares.
He told us about Whaleshares, a brand new platform created by @officialfuzzy. I find this project very interesting and I will write a blog presentation as soon as possible.
This Steemian was present a year ago during my second Steemit meeting. My English level was catastrophic but fortunately, I could count on his kindness to help me out. He is a young Catalan who is passionate about crypto-currencies. He did not hesitate to drive 1h30 to come to exchange with us his knowledge and good vibes.
Some of the topics discussed at the meeting were:
➤ The future of Steemit in the short, medium and long-term.
➤ New applications around Steemit.
➤ Live communication and discussion tools such as Steemit Chat and Discord.
➤ dysfunctions and things that could be improved.
➤ Different ways to use the platform. For example, use it as a promotional tool or create team projects.
➤ How to exchange Steem VS cryptocurrency or FIAT.
➤ What could be the future of such technology and how could it change the world as we know it?
In summary, this seventh meeting was, like the six others, a great success! Each meeting is different because it is defined by the personality and atmosphere that prevails between the participants.
At each meeting I am amazed by the investment and deep interest of the people for Steemit and blockchains. I am always learning new things and I appreciated it. The exchanges are really interesting and constructive. Each person brings their ideas and experience, which creates a friendly and creative atmosphere!
Many thanks to @starslovers, @mauryis, @beiker, @estefantt and @resiliencia to be with us and sharing their good vibes. A big thank you to the Floripa team for their great welcome!
