How Do You Feel.png

Yesterday before I went to bed and checked the market my reaction was: "Woooow."
This morning nothing changed. I knew that some people surely wrote about the current market situation. From anger to joy was everything was there.

How do you feel about the current market situation? How do you feel about STEEM? What does it make​ with you?

I mean when the last time where we were around $1.15 was?
Tendency continues to fall further. What are your heart and mind telling you?

Frustration? Disappointment?

Hi @modernpastor,
I can honestly say I am happy with the price of Steem because I feel likes it gives me a chance to buy more Steem. I believe in Steemit's potential, so I am mentally prepared to stay the course and accumulate Steem. I think the Steemit platform is poised for potential greatness and for those who maintain significant holdings great wealth may one day come. This investment is not without risks, but neither is life. I review the reasons I am invested in Steemit frequently and as long as those factors haven't changed significantly for the worse I buy more if possible. I review those factors because I want to be both a man of reason and faith.
On a side note, it's great to see you living your dream as a football player, may your good health and good fortune continue.
Take Care and keep on Steeming.

What an awesome comment. Could be one of mine. I absolutely agree with you and would recommend staying in this direction. When the reasons stay the same why should you do something different? See it the same way. Like your comment and glad that you did it :)

Wish you in everything much success my friend. :)

I don't care so much about the price, 1 steem is 1 steem to me. What frustrates me more is the development team who dont' seem to be able to get things done. We really need the SBD to be pegged to a dollar and a big enough supply so it can get actual real life use in the first place. Curation needs to be fixed so there is more of an incentive to actually upvote good content or people. There needs to be more accounts like @busy.org, @busy.pay, @hr1, ... that spread free upvotes to good people on steemit and the communities updates also can make a difference. All I hear about from the devs is the SMT's but I don't fully how thoses will change some of the core issues steemit has though but I could be wrong.


** I found 2 other projects that allow for auto-curation besides steemauto & steemvoter if you are still looking for those. They are called Steemautomated and Steemdunk
·

Did you read the interview with the STEEM content director?

It seems that right now their focus is on SMT, HIVEMIND and Communities and that at the same time. I guess they have so much to do with these things.

·

I try to keep up with what is posted about future updates yes, it often sounds like politicians talking though. Instead of working with practical examples to explain how everything work with the SMT's they make it all rather difficult to understand. Not sure if it's done on purpose, but I do look forward to what the (hopefully not so far) future updates will bring.

Well it would be wrong for me to look at the value of steem for the moment, because I am not planning to power down! The value is only important when you do want to cash out.
For sure people will stop with posting and being interactive but they are wrong! Because we are paid, under the hood, in vests, there is actually no difference! A post of $1 now delivers just as much as vest as a post of $1.5 some weeks ago!

While, I don't like the value it is a fact where we do have to life with. But I will be glad when it hits $2 that I keep on being interactive and continued to post! Slowly I am climbing in the ranking and that's what does matter for me at the moment!

It also has some nice side effects. Is has been a long time ago that converting SBD to steem, did give you as much steem as we do now!

So yes, a little bit sad about it, but I won't care (yet)!

Cheers,
Peter

·

Like your attitude like always :)
Yes, the side effect you mention is quite nice. I would also not worry too much because it's the whole crypto market and not only STEEM itself. I am also not planning to power down more the contrary will be the case.

Did see that 😁
On your way to become an whale
Good luck this weekend!

Thank you my friend :)

Last time was April 1st if I remember correctly. Personally there are times that i think we are never going to get through that bear market....
I am a huge fan of Steemit/steem and I try to invest every now and then a little bit at a time. I think it is a perfect opportunity for all “believers” to do the same. I mean these prices may look like a gift at some point.

Steem inevitably will climb high, since it is revolutionary and there is high technology behind it. Also it can have every day use since there are no transaction fees.

·

That's what I think. Believers will see this as a gift and take their opportunity. But of course no one knows what will happen but speaking from what is going to come I can say that it looks bright.

The truth is that it is a regrettable thing as the price of STEEM continues to remain at low prices and has not had a significant increase in recent months. In spite of this, I am still gathering it and I hope that at the end of it there will be a price take-off that will impress us all! For the rest I always keep track of the current prices, every day.

·

Thanks for letting me know.
I think this is also a time which separates speculators from people who believe in the core function and future possibilities of STEEM.

Steem is following the overall market, so that's why I wouldn't worry so much.

It's frustrating but not a disappoint because better things are still coming up that will boast steem up. This is a time for investment and hope for the future to be better.

So any one that has can invest and wait for profitable returns. Bitcoin was like this in 2016 December when it was 400 dollars, so there is hope for steem because it's open sourced and also people oriented.

All is well and shall be well.

off topic

Sir is there a way to have a chat with you on discord or can I send you a message through your wallet?

·

I wanted to ask the same thing but I do not know if it would bother you.

·

Great said my friend :)
Like your attitude :)

Yes, I am on discord. This should not be a problem but I have to say that I am using it not quite often 😁

·
·

Ok sir. No challenge

Here is my discord id @inspiredgideon1#0253 or can you give me yours here sir?

Feels good TBH . I'm considering buying some SP if the slide continues. I have faith that it's only temporary

·

Great attitude 💪🏾

The rate at which the price of steem is dropping is really disappointing.People are saying it will rise before December.I am hoping it rises soon.

·

Steem just follows the general crypto market. Okay it is a little bit performance less than the average cryptos. But when it rises it does most of the time out perform the market.
As long as you don't have plans to cash out, it doesn't/shouldn't differ.

I'm not worrying at all cuz I've not steem

The downtrend is making many people nervous as it sounds it might deep some more but have seen this many times before and at a point it shall rise again .This particular momnet is tough and all we can do is have patience and belive in our work in crypro.

I started my power down yesterday. I have little to no faith things are going to change here. People are making 500 dollars for a one line post while real journalists come here and make zero cents. That is isn't the path to widespread adoption. I feel I'm wasting my time putting effort into a platform that is going nowhere. I'll keep the account but it looks I am going to sell my Steempower.

I think we should move to a system where are votes are equal value, if that doesn't happen steemit will never take off. Every single person I invited here quit, people who were social media addicts. They would rather post on Facebook for free than post here and make 5 cents.

The whales are happy, they can upvote themselves, but most of the "middle class" are not. I wish steemit were better, and it wouldn'ttake much to change it, but the leadership is terrible and has extremely poor communication with the community.

Feels good TBH . I'm considering buying some SP if the slide continues. I have faith that it's only temporary

steem go long way....

Well, the price is actually frustrating, but to me, I feel it might be a blessing in disguise. Maybe because I have a huge project I'm working on and will need money around September - October when I think Steem price would have risen well.
All the same, its generally annoying, because lots of people need money for different things.

Nothing much. The seven month long bear market has hardened me to expect bad news after bad news. Fortunately, I don't rely on cryptocurrencies to live.

@modernpastor I am not much disappointed with market. Because Crypto market always shows these type of trends. We should not worry because we know the real Power of Steem.

How do I feel with steemit ???, I really can not feel bad. I know that he has had a lot of negative tendencies ... but in the same way steemit is still a blessing for my home. The salary in Venezuela only reaches to buy few things from the basic basket, so with steemit we have managed to complete what is missing. Last month, for example, we were able to enroll my girl in school by changing sbd. Otherwise we would not have been able to do it because with the salary we would not have that amount of money ... and So thank God steemit is still a great blessing that God has put us on the road and we always thank God for that. Of course we would like it to go up but as long as it is maintained I still love steemit.

I look at this is just another opportunity to buy :-D! All too often people let their emotions dictate their decisions rather than logic. When everyone else is upset and scared with crypto I am more confident than ever that we are setting up for the next bull run.

Prices aside we are seeing monumental growth and new changes across the entire ecosystem. There has to be a mass evolution followed by mass extinction in order for the future currencies to be picked from the ashes. I think of the Cambrian explosion of life where the a hugely diverse set of creatures evolved over a 20-25 million year period. They began to occupy nearly every niche around them, just like how crypto coins are looking for any niche in existing industries.

I always understand why people "panic" when the price comes down, but in my mind the price of STEEM is always around $20, and I never get tired of saying it.

In terms of general markets I think it was expected, we need to stay down if we want to go up like we did last year. The longer we stay on this base and fortify it the better, because then it becomes impossible to go below it. But, yes, it can definitely be frustrating and disappointing seeing the price not going immediately to were we want it.

Brother if you look at the crypto world now you will observe the decline and steem is not an exception ,and I can vividly recall what happened around this time last year ,decline till we enter ember month it increase rapidly.

So from my side I think this time is the best to invest because if I will say the event of last year might repeat it self again.

No regrats.(the dry bone shall rise again )

It was a buy opportunity :)

·

And did you? :)

·
·

You bet hehe. Cryptos were down across the board. A bit of LTC a bit of Steem

·
·
·

Great choice 👍🏽

The continuous downtrends of steem is really alarming because it is making a lot of persons to loss confidence on steem, if you looks at most people accounts you will found out that most of these persons are powering down their steem power into liquid steem and then selling off their steem . Steem as a currency and blockchain needs a clear direction on terms of innovations and SMT release.

Many investors and persons needs to be sure of the positive direction of steem and it's platform . And as for the crypto market it is just a normal up and down trends of the market correction

·

But its not only with Steem .. all Cryptos are lossing ground !

·
·

That’s exactly the case Andi think people are not getting it right. If it would be just Steem than I would also say that people are loosing faith in this.

But it is the whole crypto market means other reasons are heavier than just STEEM.

·
·
·

I agree with your analogy but when you look at the percentage of price loss of steem compare to Bitcoin and other currencies , you will agree with me that steem has lost more in price than Bitcoin. Take for example when Bitcoin was at 6,400 dollars steem was trading at 1.18 but now the price of Bitcoin is trading at 7,460 dollars and steem is at 1.21 dollar @modernpastor

comparing steem with bitcoin is not completly relevent in similar way .. please do check Steem and ETH or BCH or Ripple or NEO, IoTA comparision ..

You will find these all are top coins and few of them have fallen more then 8 time or greater during thei free fall..

·
·
·

even I believe Steem has much solid ground if compare to other losing crypto as it has a solid working use case which is a great success till now and keeping evolving day by day..

If I compare steem with other crypto, I can see there is more adoption near future, doesn't metter if market recovers or not.. Until its use case (Steemit and other) are doing good. So stay focused and be positive but in mean while do not just be blind keep a close eye on the project and community via Discord, Telegram and other offical community channel.

Cheers

@modernpastor Hello! well I think I hope that the Steem will come up and up soon, because I live in Venezuela and this platform is helping me a lot to supply my family. Greetings!!!
