RE: The History of Steem/Steemit Launch in the Words of @dan Larimer from the early Launch Days.

in #steem5 years ago

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.

Sort:  

I mined Bitcoin early - then Etherium early - now I am here discovering this incredible idea. My situation is different. I have all my mining cards, but don't have a solid internet connection (nothing is solid in South America)

I am reading Joseph's post and love having the whole story in one place.

That sucks. Luckily I have a great internet connection here. It's not gigabit - it's 200Mbps but it's pretty reliable.

I know! I keep losing my internet connection when voting (which is a tad time sensitive). I am brand new at this. But still, I had bought Steem well before finding out about Steemit. I am invested in many, many alt coins and Steem was one. As you can see, by my original vest and continued increase in my vesting, I am learning more about this and feeling better and better about investing here.
I am finding it easier to just buy in and convert to "Steem Power", rather than setting up a miner at this point.

I'm not expecting to make much using mining to be honest. I'm just fed up with ETH/ETC right now so I though I would help support the STEEM network. If I had the server setup know how I might instead run to be a witness but right now I don't have the time to do the work.
Yes powering up makes sense. I've been slowly buying STEEM and powering up. I've essentially tripled the amount of SP I have over the last few weeks.

You should point out that Stemmit was built on Graphen sponsored by BTS community. We had social consensus there which was clearly broken by @dantheman. He isthief and con man that you will soon find out. #bitshares

And yet here you are.

You know better than me that he will do that again. Just watch.

Thief and con man are big accusations. Can you point me to links that prove that @dantheman is all that you say? The recent strife between him and @ned and everybody calling out everybody else for being a scammer has me not wanting to invest though the promise of such a platform is really intriguing. Is it all going to I loose or will I be able to make an income off here if I throw in ten grand. And for how long+

Time Machine, now that's an idea that sounds rather interesting...
Does anyone know how close we are to this?

If it ever gets invented then it means someone could be here right now who is a time traveler.
