My Steemfest 2 Ticket Giveaway Nomination & Entry

Please nominate me for a (free) ticket to SteemFest if you would like to do so!

Working on making my way to SteemFest this year! Starting with a chance at getting a free ticket so I may attend the great event and meet more people many of whom I have worked with directly or indirectly. Some of whom I have met in person and mostly have interested with online. The chance to attend would really be awesome to speak and meet in person to expand my steem and crypto horizons and possibilities.

Contributions to the Community

Have been helping users since last year when I had the opportunity to work with @sykochica with the idea of Steemprentice who I got the chance to meet during @stellabelle's Steemy Summer Party where I got to meet many others in the steem(it) community including @alfonso1003, @bluerthangreen, @clickinchicken, @fungusmonk, @goatgarden, @jasonrussell, @little-peppers, @melodyrussell, @pierrefilms, @rebeccabe, @reedracer, and @sylviategan. Was great to meet @jessamynorchard who came to perform live for us and worked on starting Steemit Local Music Society which is one of over two dozen Steem(it) related discord channels I am a member of. Also @jacobts who was great to meet that had wrote me a thank you letter and @papa-pepper who decided to travel about four hours partially because of my presence and give me one of his t-shirts!

Thank you for the great time at KC Summer Steem Party!

Beyond Bitcoin Hangouts hosted by @Fuzzy

Fuzzy asked me to join and talk about what I do in the community. Appreciate that he has thanked me for what I do many times along with many others. I was more active on Beyond Bitcoin Hangouts earlier this year. Between being too early in the morning and waking up to/with ringing ears I have not attended while concentrating my efforts on other endeavors. Will be sure to become active with this group that has great supported me as well as challenged me as many people in the community come to me with questions, ideas, concerns, and such. Great appreciation to the minnows, dolphins, whales, witnesses, developers, business people, project things, and many others. They all know who they are!


Please do check out which brings you to a great community hosted by @fyrstikken and many in the community as this channel is about crypto, Steem and beyond where I am active to various degrees. Not so much in the channel as of late. But I am on discord for many hours just about every day and anyone is welcome to reach out to me by tagging me or direct messaging me as many do. Great thank you, appreciation, and gratitude to @fyrstikken and everyone there including numerous of the moderators who I love engaging with in one way or another @battleaxe, @bitcoinparadise, @contentjunkie, @inertia, @instructor2121, @nate, @richardcrill, @whatsup, and others. Highly suggest visiting the great people on steemit and this discord channel and others!

STP Steemit Talk Podcast

Many weekends myself and others caught the hosts of @steemittalk which have included @giftedgaia, @sykochica, @raymonjohnstone, @winstonwolfe, and some others since last summer. You can check out past recordings which feature lots of great content supporting their motto of "Your content fuels our content".

Helping ZAPPL with some ideas that has led to the community coming together to raise funds and support for the zapple application that will be in beta by next month! This led to a cross share drop with VIRGROW holders along the way. Hope to find more future partnerships to perform cross drop gifts of value with.

Attending Cryptocurrency Events

Quick Thank you to everyone! Great to meet some people at Consensus!

Crypto life has changed a lot since the opportunity of attending Consensus! Getting to stay with @Fuzzy, meeting @dan and @ned at various points along numerous crypto people including but not limited to Ronny Boesing of OpenLedger, @matt-a, @robrigo, @taconator, @xeroc, @roelandp, @jamesc, Daniel Pineda of @apptrade (Open Ledger's AppTrade), @fox, @sneak, and many more!

This event and many to follow had been a big turning point in crypto life! From breaking over 1,000 followers, 70 reputation, and many new connections and opportunities! One of the most notably meeting up with Daniel and Ronny after Consensus which has led to the opportunity of advising OpenLedger's AppTrade and going to Smart Money which occurred between now and Consensus where I got to assist in representing OpenLedger along with attend meetings and dinners with Ronny and others which was all a great experience!

Yes, very true, may not have the time to write out everything I have done as I have more stuff to do like talking with people like yourself behind the scenes to get more ideas rolling!

Am very impressed as for how far you have gone for the community. You are indispensable. One of my desire is to meet you very soon and learn from you. For all this I norminate you @virtualgrowth. Keep shining.

You've done a lot for this community @virtualgrowth with a very positive and upbeat vibe. I certainly hope you win a ticket (me too) so that we can meet in Lisbon if not before. Thanks for all you do and for sharing the Steemit goodwill around. Blessed opportunity!

Of course I will be very glad to nominate the kind and generous @virtualgrowth.

However, I'm not sure what I need to do to ensure I'm nominating you.

Is my comment enough? Or do I need to go to @blueorgy's "Call To Entry" posts?

Is not completely clear, and I want to do my part to help get you there.

So, please let me know if there's anything else I need to do, and I will.

Upvoted & Resteemed, too!


Hi @solarsherpa, I see you have mentioned me.
This is automatic response so that I may respond to your mention later.

Is Steemfest always in the same country or will you be hosting on here in the USA in the near future?


Steemfest is not always in the same country. May be hosting in the USA soon as it was originally planned for being the USA this year. But the planned place was closing and another location had to be chosen.

I want to be there
