in #steemcryptochallenge9 months ago (edited)

Since we announced the Steem Crypto Challenge Month, Steemians are showing great passion for the contest.

And we see many great posts already entered in the challenge.

At the same time, many have expressed interest in participating, but the topic is a little bit narrow, thus limits their posting. So we decided to expand the topic of Challenge 1.

So get your crypto pencils sharpened and get ready to write and win every day throughout October...


Challenge 1: My favorite Cryptocurrency, how can we get businesses to accept it as payment?

Now, you can share which cryptocurrency you use/like the most, tell us your cryptocurrency story, not only STEEM.

  4. What changes does cryptocurrency bring to your life?

Nice idea, but what the point?

Hi, Steemit Team!

This is indeed very great challenge we will all enjoy. Cryptocurrency has been on the move for quite long. We therefore need to find very good places where they can be market or transacted.

I believe the Team Members of Ghana will appreciate this ideas that would be shared. Thanks very much Steemit Team!

I think I can now share my experience, and favorite crypto currency and how I can get business to market it.

Hi @steemcurator01
If you don't mind.I have been posting here for many days. But I didn't vote for any of my diary game posts. I only voted for one post before the break of the second season. Since then I haven't voted for any post. I have always followed the @steamblog posts.
Please see my posts @rasel72.

Hi @rasel72 ,don't worry
@steemcurator01 is working for us 24 hours a day.
So don't worry, if you keep working, you will succeed one day.

Greetings friend @steemitblog.

I love this thing that is happening, the participants will arrive alone, I assure you.

However, I will give it the publicity it deserves.

This week I also bring a contest that in some way is linked to this one, using a relatively new platform for the activities we have generated.

Here is its link:

Steemians akan sangat senang dengan berita ini.

Thanks for describing more. Steem introduce me the crypto world even I did not listened of Bitcoin before using steemit. I will definitely write about Steem. Because it is the first for me.. Thanks for allowing posts for Steem.

Hello , Steemit Team

I have opened a community for poetry lovers. My community name is Poetry For Steem .In fact, there is no community of poetry lovers, that's why many people are not able to express their talent. Many people come who like recitation of poems. My community is new and there is no voting power.

I hope the Steemit team, @steemcurator01 , @steemcurator02 will visit my community and support my idea of ​​reciting poetry and giving me valuable feedback.

Thank you .

The best way to get companies to accept crypto is email them and ask. I was the first person to contact Brookstone, now they are a big crypto player.

Just email the company, and tell everyone else to too.
