BUILDING AN ALLIANCE: Ambitious goal? Helping Venezuelan community WIN 20K DELEGATION

in #steem5 years ago (edited)
111.jpgToday's publication is by far my most important one yet of this year. It may be longer than my usual posts but I would absolutely appreciate your time and support, my dear readers.
(if you're in rush then please just skip to "SUMMARY" section )

As usual I reply to all comments.

Always.

INTRODUCTION

line2.png

The other day, a friend of mine introduced me to an amazing contest organized by witness @theycallmedan. The idea behind his initiative is simple but brilliant. Readers were asked to nominate a few projects on Steemit platform, which they believe deserve extra attention and support.

Every community project which will go through an initial selection (round 1) will receive 1000 SP delegation. Winner of the second round (starting today) will receive 20k SP delegation for the period od of 1 year.

HOW AMAZING IS THAT?

AM I BEING GREEDY OR NAIVE?

line2.png

picture sourceI can only imagine how benefitial it would be for our small community if I could continue my work on this platform and support quality content with stronger upvotes.

Many of you know me long enough to notice, that I engage a lot with people (mostly those sharing similar values and passion towards blockchain technology) and I upvote pretty much every valuable comment I'm reading. Having extra 20k delegation would surely help us all. This I'm pretty sure off.

But I still need to ask myself a few simple questions: am I not being too greedy? Would winning this contest be even a real possibility? Maybe. I hardly doubts so. Even with the current support I would probably end up as 2nd or 3rd, which would not benefit anyone. Neither me or anyone from our community.

So I came up with an idea. Please spare few minutes and continue reading :)

"REVOLUTIONARY" IDEA

line2.png

pic sourcePerhaps what I came up with isn't really that "revolutionary" as I would like to think, but I figured out that ...

instead of "fighting with other competitors" I could build an alliance with other Steemit community.

One of those participating in the contest. One that I believe in and I want to support with all my heart .

Alliance build on trust, which would serve one purpose: merging and growing both communites even more. So the idea is simple: Instead of asking my supporters for their votes, I would build a new healthy connection with either @SteemitBloggers or @SteemChurch and help one of them win.

After all: is there any better way of establishing a strong alliance by building trust between us?I strongly believe that by "giving up the fight" and investing my time to promote other projects I will prove my good will. I wonder if it even make sense for you guys?

I would really like to hear what you think about my approach, as it is constantly a learning process for all of us. Sharing your thoughts and feedback would help me greately to progress in the future.

BUILDING ALLIANCES WITH VENEZUELIAN COMMUNITIES

line2.png

Initially, I contacted representatives of @steemitbloggers and offered them my support.

Unfortunatelly I failed. My impression was that I didn't manage to gain their trust. I understand that the level of distrust in the crypto industry is very high so I cannot really blame them.

Too bad.

My second thought was to get familiar with the efforts and work being done by the amazing Venezuelian community @steemchurch. I received a very warm welcome and talking to their CEO was very refreshing and brought a smile on my face. @emiliocabrera is such a positive and encouraging person. Someone really worth knowing.

My vision and goals are quite simple and straight forward:

line2.png

I see huge potential of using the Steemit platform to benefit a great amount of people in real life. I'm in touch with a group of over 40 Venezuelans already and introducing them to @steemchurch could potentially help some of them (after all it's locally strong community of Christians in Venezuela).

On the other hand I will gladly get to know members of their Venezuelian community who share similar passion towards blockchain technology, crypto, economy etc. And I will do my best to help them grow (let's take them under "our" wings).
(and please do not worry, I'm not trying to sell anything to anyone :)

WIN-WIN scenario for everyone involved. That's how I see it anyway :)

FEW WORDS ABOUT @STEEMCHURCH COMMUNITY

line2.png



It's a real photo!
SteemChurch is a Venezuelian christian community using the Steemit platform in order to reach out to other people sharing mostly common interest and faith towards God and his creations.

Important Note: It is crutial to underline that at this stage,
I'm by no means a religious person and I would NEED TO ASK EVERYONE to avoid religious comments under this post. I respect all minorities and religions out there, but my wish is to avoid this very sensitive topic. I hope everyone can understand and respect this.

Their founder and CEO are not very "tech savy" but seem to have great heart. So I believe that with my skills and knowledge this alliance can go really far.

THREE MUSKETERS

line2.png

pic sourceI would love to share one more awesome news.

My dear friend @achim03 (he represents @help.venezuela community, which also received solid amount of nominations) will join our alliance and support our efforts.

How amazing is that? Combining our efforts could potentially give @steemchurch a chance to win that competition. Be part of it and join us! :)

Let's see if our projects combined can actually work together. I chosed to believe that we can.

SUMMARY / SHOW YOUR SUPPORT

line2.png

If you value my efforts and you agree with what Im trying to achieve, then please visit this link below and vote on @STEEMCHURCH.

Let's help them to win that 20k delegation.

Many of you (dear readers) know me already for quite some time and have witnessed a number of my efforts and work I did to help our little community grow. I promote quality content (mostly crypto related) and I'm constantly looking for valuable content creators who need help with building their exposure and presence on the Steemit platform.

I would greately appreciate if you could also drop a comment below and perhaps consider RESTEEMing this post, so I could reach larger audience.

Thank you everyone,
Yours truly, Piotr

Sort:  

Thank you @Crypto.piotr for this gesture. This cooperation will take us far. Am glad you saw value in what we do.

Yours in this Alliance
@Uyobong

Friends @steemchurch

@crypto.piotr since last year is carried out some very good proposals, and is always helping just causes, I can say that I consider him a good friend,. and I can attest to his gestures of good Samaritan. and as @juanmolina

@crypto.piotr denies it, but that's good to be thankful and he's very thankful which is more important.

Dear @lanzjoseg

What do I deny? I kind of lost you my dear friend :)

Yours, Piotr

Dear @steemchurch, we who have known for a long time @crypto.piotr, we have been able to confirm his humanistic and even altruistic character (although he himself often does not accept it that way).

This is my humble opinion

Friend @juanmolina

I share your humble opinion.

We have been able to confirm his humanistic and even altruistic character (although he himself often does not accept it that way).

Dear @juanmolina

indeed we do know each other for quite some time. I found it ironic that I was introduced to you because of your brother @nachomolina but I ended up getting closer to you and I hardly keep in touch with Nacho any more.

By the way, perhaps you could ask both of your brothers to vote on SteemChurch?

Cheers
Piotr

Hi dear brother.

It´s Done!

Dear @tommyl33

Thx for your comment. I always appreciate them a lot :)

if i not mistaken ur wife is from penang

She is a KL girl, but we both couldn't stand Kuala Lumpur. Is that where are you from?

ps. could you please help with this small contest ? Im supporting SteemChurch (Venezuelan community) and it's such a fierce contest and just after 4 days we're right behind SteemitBloggers.

We've another 3 exciting days ahead of us. Perhaps you give your own vote and ask around your friends if they wouldn't mind support our small initiative.

I would be very grateful :)

Dear @steemchurch

It is such a pleasure to get to know you guys. I had a chance to "talk" to your founder @sirknight and CEO @emiliocabrera and Im full of hopes.

Regardless if we win those 20k delegation or not - I already feel very victorious. It's very difficult to build alliance without trust. And I think trust is already there between us. So I can only see great things happening for our communities in the future.

Yours
Piotr

Well said and accurate. It has been a pleasure Piotr.

Supported. Let's get believers in Jesus Christ, do-gooders who would be saved, and the gullible superheros mobilized.

Down with the "lame" villains- your fault for being boring. You know who you are.

What a noble gesture you have made @crypto.piotr!

Admirable action on your part.

Do not stop surprising us dear friend.

Dear friend @uyobong. how have you been?

My son voted his account already - I am still waiting. I am not asking anyone to do anything for this event though.

Dear Piotr Sir,

I am loss at words to describe your selfless mindset!

Honestly speaking, I have learnt a lot from you and still learning a lot Sir.

Your act is a solid proof of an age old adage....."United we stand, divided we fall"

My vote is for @steemchurch Sir.

Hi @crypto.piotr, as an atheist person (Ironic having a god's nickname ) I won't support any initiative that will help to develop or promote a religious community here in the Steem blockchain, I tell you this with the confidence that you'll understand this message as a humble explanation to my actions and words.

For any other issue you can count with my attention and support. Cheers.

I also thought on the same line that why should I nominate a religious organization? But in the end I thought it is for humanitarian cause and I decided to support it.

@crypto.poitr , I trust you and I hope the alliance will be beneficial for all.

All my respects to that decision.I just don't trust in these kind of organizations just that, anyone is in the right of trusting them though.

Dear @r1s2g3

I trust you and I hope the alliance will be beneficial for all.

Thank you for your comment.

Dear @palasatenea, @r1s2g3

It's not so much about supporting religious organization. It's just a group of people from all over Venezuela, who are supporting each other and their driving force is CEO and also founder of @steemChurch.

My goal is to help them grow only so I could introduce several of my own Venezuelan friends to those people (so they can build some local contacts).

And as for me .... together with few other friends (all of us blockchain freaks) we will take under our wings those guys from their community, who have some decent english skills and knowledge about crypto and we will help them also grow on Steemit.

Of course I fully respect your decision, but if you could re-consider helping us (after reading my explanation) then I would be more than grateful.

It's such a fierce contest and just after 4 days we're right behind SteemitBloggers.

We've another 3 exciting days ahead of us.

Hi @crypto.piotr,
In the first part of this contest the project @help.venezuela got 66 votes and the third place! This is simply amazing and we are very aware that this is mainly because of you. Thousand thanks to you for your support in the name of this project but also in the name of the Venezuelians wo get their posts upvoted.
Since we managed to go through the first cut, we will get a delegation of 1000 SP that will help us support even more people from Venezuela here on steemit.

We gladly support you in this alliance to vote for @steemchurch. We truely believe that it is in coming together and helping each other that we can bring about a positive change.

Dear @help.venezuela

you indeed managed to collect quite a number of nominations, but at the same time most people who nominated you nominated also me hahaha :) it seem that we both share many mutual friends.

Since we managed to go through the first cut, we will get a delegation of 1000 SP that will help us support even more people from Venezuela here on steemit.

Indeed that 1000SP delegation surely will be very helpful.

Piotr

Hello my friend @crypto.piotr ...!!!

It is a pleasure to read a post one more time from you...!!!

I am very surprised by this incredible decision you have made to choose to help more people, as always the gratitude and honesty with which you have always worked without waiting for something, it will always be the best part that defines you as an incredible person and a great leader.

I am sure that the result will be positive, helping others always reward us with positive things, the work and effort you have done for so long has very good results.

I will be forever grateful for your constant help since I started at steemit, now, of course my support will always be available for you, and of course my vote will be for @steemchurch

SO. Let´s do it right now...!!!

Dear @edgarare1

Dear @edgarare1

You've been so supportive from the day I met you. Seriously if only all mexicans would be the way you are, I would pack myself even today and move to your country :)

I am very surprised by this incredible decision you have made to choose to help more people

I kind of used logic. I could spent next one week trying to win that delegation. But this is my last 6 days with my wife after which i wont see her almost for 3 months. So working hard would be stupid.

And what is the point of 'fighting' if you know that you cannot win?

Anyway building alliances is worth way more than 20k delegation. I chosed to believe that.

All the best buddy
Piotr

Thank you for your amazing reply...

Well, working well always bring us good results my dear friend...

Let´s continue with the amazing mission...

You really have a great mind of helping people @crypto.piotr
