“It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done...”

― Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

For a time the Knight was consumed by his own self-importance!

SIRKNIGHT, the strategic genius behind the 'GREAT STEEM WARS.' The mastermind behind the 'STEEM LORDS.' Founding father of 'TEAM AUSTRALIA.' Creator of 'MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE.' Architect behind the acclaimed CELESTIAL CHALLENGE.'


A Knight with it all - status, riches, influence, a coquettish smile and rugged good looks.

Yet something was missing!

A yearning in his heart.

To give? To empower? To end hunger and bring freedom to the world?

Meanwhile, on the other side of world...

a young poultry farmer and student from the town of Uselu in Nigeria, named Joshua Abiye, dreamed of one day operating his very own fish farm and supplying his village market with fresh fish daily and all the nutrients fish provide.

One year earlier Joshua had begun work on the first two tanks in his family's backyard - when he was swindled out of all his savings and the project came to a standstill.

This impasse would turn out to be short lived however, as the lives of our two heroes would become interconnected by the decentralised nodes of the blockchain - forever!

SirKnight, forlorn in spirit, turned to The Holy Bible for guidance - without comfort, without peace. Until one night... it was a vision of some description. It spoke:

'SirKnight... cast aside thou gloomy demeanor and build thee a Church and pray thee to God, and reward the parishioners.'

Posting for pennies this young Nigerian sort shelter at a new Church he had heard about. SteemChurch was the name. The first ever Church of the Blockchain.

Joshua Abiye, whilst humble in nature, proved to be talented blogger who took immense pride in his work. It was not long before this talented youngster came to the attention of the Church's Knight founder and shortly thereafter Joshua Abiye was promoted within Church ranks.

Then one day Brother Abiye posted this...

and SirKnight's life would be changed forever.

For SirKnight now knew what he had to do. SirKnight now knew what Steem had to do. SirKnight knew what all us Steemians had to do.

Feed the world - one small farm at a time!

Brother @abiye had been saving his Steem Dollars to finish work on the first two tanks and construct a fence to protect the farm from undesirables.

Each tank will hold up to 500 fish upon maturity at 3 months - and at this time each tank would provide approximately 15-20 fish to traders and the market women daily.

So far Brother Abiye had spent the equivalent of of 200 SBD on constructing the tanks and drainage.

To take the farm from where it is now to a fully functional fish farm, Brother Abiye requires:

  1. Materials to construct a fence to protect and secure the farm - estimate 25 SBD
  2. 100 baby fish and feed for 3 months - 50 SBD (200 baby fish and feed would be better 100SBD)

SIRKNIGHT exclaimed - 'consider it done my friend!'

All Steem Dollars earned by this post will be paid directly to Brother Abiye to get his fish farm up and running. The sooner he can get the fish in, the better for his town folk.

Let us target 125 SBD with this post!

Brother Abiye has agreed to provide the generous Steemians of Steemit with regular updates on his progress.

Together Brother Abiye and SirKnight have already put in place plans for the future. Depending on the success of the first two tanks - we will look to raise funds for a third tank for the farm - estimated cost 85 SBD.

Two complete strangers from two completely different walks of life - can't begin to explain how excited they are to be working together on this project. Anywhere between 30-60 fish could be supplied to the local community per day from 2-3 tanks!

Agriculture has been the backbone of the economy... And has feed the world. Let us all celebrate the farmers from their hard work


Not to nitpick, but make sure to use only food and antibiotics that are safe for human consumption, you can do much research with the internet and only a few countries where consumer safety laws really protect the health of the citizens (EU regulations are pretty good, Japan seems to be okay in this regard also, US is very lax and business-focused) have good standards and their guidelines on what is safe to feed to fish might be a good model to follow. Otherwise I would not want you or those who are receiving your fish to get sick from consuming them for a long time, and I wish you both the best and am amazed to read such good news!


I agree. To take it one step further and to create a more sustainable ecosystem I suggest looking into aquaponics. That will also add the benefit of produce and in the end require less maintenance and interference. Check out this site for more info.


I was thinking the same thing. I have so many ideas now. THIS IS AMAZING! I have been loaning to small organic farmers on and was thinking how else can I help them. I am going to share Steemit with them.

Sir, I pray you are learning farming practices from: Permaculture, Biodynamic farming and Certified Organic farming practices.

I would not want your wonderful works to harm the eco-system and your community with BIG AG farming practices that promote the use of synthetic chemicals that will bankrupt your efforts.

Do a search on 'GMO suicides' and 'farmer suicides' to learn more. *NOTE be careful as some videos that come up on Youtube show the actual suicide.

I am sharing this because I care about what you are doing and want you to succeed.

In short, using synthetic fertilizers may grow plants quickly, but the plants will become addicted and need you to buy more and more bags of fertilizer to keep them alive. These fake fertilizer plants will then have lower nutrients to provide real nourishment for the community.

If you add any store bought items make sure they are certified organic, biodynamic and free from toxic long lasting chemicals and heavy metals.

Keep up the great work!


Advice duly noted......thanks for the support, I am grateful


Thanks for the support and encouragement...... I will ensure to use Safe feeds


Hey guys! Yes it has been a very good day. And our other favourite token - EOS is top of the ratings list!



steem can join franchising activities and boost growth and as a consequence, more ability to help.
for example steem can cooperate with fmcg market players, involving them inits blockchain. beside content we generate, transactions we make at starbucks or McDonald can be generate steem power. just an idea ;)

This is what really excites me about Steem, you can be in a poor village in Ethiopia but as long as you have an internet connection you can start earning crypto. Truly is a genius platform.


That is it Tony - STEEM is empowering people and undermining corporate and political control.


The way it should be an equal playing field, maybe the tables will turn. My approach is to get as many people on this platform as possible, the other social media sites like Facebook are making it a lot easier with all their censorship now too!


God bless you @sirknight, great human you are


Steemit to be me, has been a life changing experience. It has transformed me into someone that can be recognized in my small community


That is amazing, Im so happy to hear this!


Brother @sirknight , good morning to you from Nigeria.

I just followed you sir
Well this is my first time on your blog. I must say I just got blessed after reading


I have something here to help us grow in spirit.

God bless you sir.

Really great work mate. Resteemed.

· happy because of you, you have been very supportive

People think its just a saying when i say it will only get better, @steemchurch has just being around for just a month and few days yet, Lives has been transformed, people across Nations have been empowered, dreams are coming true, stories are still changing for Good.

Indeed we are up for a world that will blossom and flourish in steems!

Lots of talent and visions like this have been killed with frustration and even wicked taxes by the evil governments of this world.

God bless your wisdom @sirknight for yielding to the voice of lord. Indeed STEEM WILL FEED THE WORLD!
Long live the @STEEMCHURCH

Indeed I am overwhelmed with this post.....@sirknight as truly proving himself as a leader to the world..... Thanks for all your encouragement and support and thanks for sharing this post


@bniode thanks for your support and encouragement

Terrific project and story ! I also believe Steemit will end up overrunning every single mainstream social media dictatorship ! Here it is a free, clever place for intelligent people who only want to change this fucked up money system for corrupted idiots ! And we will end up making cryptomoney the only money on Earth ! I learn a lot everyday on here ! Thanks !


Very well said Loonyfool!


Thanks for your inspirational stories, keep it up it's great, this world's amazing, maybe it has given me sleepless nights sometimes but it's all positivity spreading in this crypto world ! You see all those ICOs creating, more than 1450 now, there is so much hope and enthusiasm, I guess this is the best opportunity for us to really make a big impact and change this world system very few people like.

I had been thinking so many years about the best way to change the world, this crypto-universe just gave us all the means to reach this ultimate goal, we just have to keep it going with the same passion and pace every day ; thousands of programmers are working right now for it and I'm really appreciating the fact it could be programmers and free-minded people, scientists who rule the world soon, it should have always been like that, not people who own oil, anyway soon there will be cars working with water so all these "oil people" can go fuck themselves; their system is obsolete, we are the future :D


Exceptional, well said my friend @loonyfool


Thanks, we are the future of the world with our ideas and this crypto system, we will definitely change this obsolete world :D

Beware! If the US government learns about this, this project might get immediately shut down! Kidding aside, I hope more people will learn about this. Steemit shouldn't be just a venue for gaining money, but also a place where we help other people. Kudos to you @sirknight! I wish more people are like you. Cheers!


Thanks for the kind words VC.


You're always welcome! :)


True word my friend..... Steemit is the place to learn and discover new things


Oh there you are Mr. @abiye! I wish you good luck and I hope you can finish your plans. I will be following your progress. Cheers! :)

Great post! I love the idea of a fish farm.
It makes a lot more sense than going to find it in the ocean as well, less waste and more localized production that can be tailored to the needs of the community.
The risk of course if of not doing it properly... Pollution from factory fish farming can have adverse health affects for the population.
But I think if it does carefully and with the right tools, and the object is not greed, but to feed people, then it's an amazing project!

You've got my few pennies! (Wish it was more!)

Thanks Sirknight. Following x


Thanks for your feedback, as all those advise as been put into consideration

This is exactly how the gospel of Steem can spread: grounding it in projects that alleviate poverty around the world, ensuring that the basic needs -food, shelter, clothing - of more people are met.

Ingenious! Here's to a future full of success to both of you. These small yet valiant efforts are solid proof that good does exist! Keep going forward one step at a time!

If you are poor in life and you blame your parents for not giving you the money to establish yourself that means you are the biggest fool ever. I am proud of this brother he just really show up to tell us that steemit dollar is not to be waisted but to be invested and feed the world. It's a great start I love your foresight and the God that did that for you will also do it for we all. God help me on my vision on steemit so help me lord

Am glad you love the post..... Indeed @sirknight is a legend

Sirknigh, I admire the greatness of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, for the beautiful work that HE has been doing in his heart. The Lord says in his word of the abundance of the heart speaks the mouth, it is understood that you are a chosen person, with a clean and willing heart, for an important mission to help others to fulfill those projects and dreams that most of Sometimes they are thrown in a corner for lack of a word of encouragement and especially economic resources. May the Lord ALMIGHTY, continue blessing you in everything you undertake.

You are an oak, and your destiny is to grow big and majestic. Give shelter to the birds, shade the travelers, beauty to the landscape ... You have a mission "Cúmplela". You are strong and sure of yourself and willing to be everything for which you are destined. May the love of Christ always shine in your heart! Blessing.

Very good project.i am inspired of your fishing project.Many man are now develop his carrier by farming .Thanks for sharing your information... @sirknight

This is how Steemit will change the world, well done Brother.


Thanks for this heart warming reply

Steem to feed the world.
That's Good

This is soo cool idea.You can win more cash from this fish when they are developed can purchase sustain nourishment. it looks little circle.these nourishment is better from other sustenance. @sirknight

Thanks for all the comments and all the support you have given me...... I AM HAPPY BECAUSE OF YOU

@sirknight and @abiye keep up all the great work I can't think of a better thing to upvote and support right now on Steemit. I can't wait to see the finished project and would love to have continued updates even when it's finished about what's going well, what isn't going well, and the continued success of the project.

I also live near uselu when i'm in school and i know the struggle of getting fresh fish. This development is very much welcome. I am so happy that brother abiye and Sirknight crossed paths and i pray others that are as privileged as sirknight lend helping hands to others........after all the bible says in 2 Peter 1:7 "and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love"......and there is no greater love than helping someone else as you have done @sirknight .....may God continue to protect and bless you.

great post, sirknight as usual!

This is what i think can improve our economy- when we embrace agriculture. Its God's gift to humanity. Together we survive. Shalom!

What a great cause and certainly a worthy one. Helping the farmer ultimately helps the whole community around them. This is a great example of how helping the foundations spreads help so much further. I can't offer much yet (although I will swing by with my other account to add a vote), but this is something akin to what I had in mind when I started this account for my project. I hope you make the target. Love and blessings -@minismallholding.

Agriculture is the mainstay of Nigeria, thank you for broadcasting this @sirknight
