RE: The History of Steem/Steemit Launch in the Words of @dan Larimer from the early Launch Days.
I just wish I had mined this early.
Sadly at the time I had gotten rid of all my mining PCs and hadn't quite gotten round to building my monster gaming PC (which I now use to mine STEEM when I'm not using it).
Oh well. Live and learn. If I had a time machine I would also go back and start mining Bitcoin in 2009!
Oh and I would also buy 10 bitcoins worth of ether instead of just 1 and I would go back and NEVER invest in the DAO.
Also for people who keep calling the STEEM mining a scam or an instamine compare it to DASH (DARKcoin) which was instamined for the first few days.
I remember the furore over it well - if (and this is a big if) any of those early miners still have their DASH then they are very rich.
Anyway my point is that now people seem to have completely forgotten about the instamine for DASH even though it was completely blatant and nobody even denies it.
People only toss around scam accusations until something reaches the point of critical mass where they jump on board themselves for fear of missing out.
Then all those accusations strangely vanish.
The same will happen with Steem/Steemit.
