I’m so glad I went to Steemfest! What a diverse mix of open, welcoming and friendly people. So much good energy around.
When I tell people about STEEM it often comes across super nerdy. STEEM, SP, SBD, Delegation, DApps Reward Pool, Witnesses, abuse… etc etc. It’s pretty easy to forget the important part is community. Steemfest showed me the community on STEEM is strong. I should (we all should) talk about community first. A small (for now) corner of the internet where you can meet like minded people. No ads or algorithms just a truck-load of potential.
I was a little apprehensive last week. I only booked my travel a couple days before leaving. It’s clear now I shouldn’t have been. The whole event was ace! Big shout to @roelandp and thew hole Steemfest team. If Steemfest4 exists i’ll be booking my tickets on the day it’s announced.
Feeling that I missed out on the final day booking my travel for Saturday. :( Glad to see so many photos and that everyone had an awesome final day and dinner.
A few highlights include:
Listening to @aggroed/@yabapmatt talk about steemmonsters and building sustainable business on the blockchain. One thing I took away is that even If I don’t want to play @steemmonsters (or insert other app here) I should be supporting more initiatives on the blockchain.
Bumping into @travellit as the first people I spoke to! So glad I got drawn in by that camera. Enjoy the travels ✌️.
Chatting and finally putting a real person to the name @howo.
The @sndbox squad! Always awesome to meet people creating quality work on our blockchain.
Good vibes from @illucifer △
Finding an ultimate frisbee friend @fingersik - can’t believe we didn’t throw a disc around!
Chatting all things blockchain with @crimsonclad at 4am
Chatting and drinking beers with @toocurious.
@kevinwong - Gutted I left before the secret meeting!
Ace to talk to @hightouch/ future shock members - possibly one of the strongest initiatives on the blockchain.
@wandereronwheels! - love the adventures mate!
Plus plenty others that I’m probably missing. 🙈
Thanks to everyone I met throughout Steemfest. The event showed me that STEEM is for everyone! You don’t end up at Steemfest without a story.
Here’s a few photos from phone.
