See how I am using Steemit to develop my community by building Accelerator Hubs with FREE WiFi and Electricity.| Hub number 2 in progress.

in steemit •  10 months ago

Steemit has no doubt been a game changer in my life and that too has become the order of the day, because as I breathe and live, Steem just oozes out of me.


A NEW HUB.

Watch the video below.


On the 23rd of December, I had to take a trip back to Uyo after returning from the SteemUp Delta event to see first hand the space we paid for with earnings made from Steemit.
What do we need the space for? To develop an Accelerator Hub that will be used by the creative commons to access the Blockchain education and understand better the Steem Blockchain technology and be able to use it to impact society positively.

I am a product of a country where corruption is king and making a decent earning takes work and even when you put in work, that decent earning isn't even decent enough to take care of your needs.

Since joining Steemit and actively blogging, I have become so fascinated at the whole practice of loving others first before yourself and I am awed at the power of that singular act.

The Uyo Hub which we plan to launch in January 2018 is going to be the second in the series of Steem Accelerator Hubs planned for Africa; the first being in Port Harcourt which has been operational since August 2017 and have so much progress to report.

From the video, you could see the number of Steemians who came out with me to see the Hub and also work to make sure they have their own accelerator where they can be able to collaborate and become better people in the future.


WHY ACCELERATORS WITH FREE WiFi & ELECTRICITY?

I decided that since the government cannot provide these opportunities for the citizenry even after making them pay so much through taxes and levies, I will be the government of my own community and make available these facilities.


Seeing that Steemit provides a way for me, I decide I needed more people to see and embrace this fantasy that places you on easy street.
Being online in Nigeria and Africa is very expensive and without the ability to learn what the world will be needing in the future, we will not be able to produce good leaders who will make the world a better place for someone else.

The Steem Accelerator Hub in Port Harcourt has been able to, through it various projects and campaign, recruit over 300 active Nigerians on the Steemit platform since October 2017.


To these young Steemians, the hub is already home.


As a Corporate Social Responsibility, we are using these Accelerator hubs to make our world see the beauty that is Steem and also help them accept it as a means of making the world a better place where corruption of government can be checked.


How do you explain this madness? Steemit really does make things happen.

If an ordinary blogger can make these available just by putting his little earnings in Steem/SBD to use, what about the government that has access to the country's sovereign wealth?


Seeing the joyful smiles on the faces of these young people as they came out to meet me at the Hub as you can see from the video and pictures, I just felt happy and Blessed.


I FEEL BLESSED!


These Accelerator will be used as co-working spaces and points of meeting where young people can run into from the harsh effects of the centralized world. Knowing that you can with the power of your thoughts create a wonder that helps people make better decisions is simply the best feeling in the world.


With me in the picture, are Graphic artists, Coders, Developers, Photographers, Crypto traders and Merchants; and being able to get them a place that will help them escape the unemployment scourge in the country just makes it all better.
Rollcall? @Samstickkz, @Vwovwe, @Xpressng, @Annieben, @Ewuoso, @Joshuaattat, @Folly-panda, @Teaser1, @Vheobong, @Ubongj etc.
AFTER MAKING PAYMENT, this Steemian @Joshuaattat a developer went to clean the hub,
Read about it Volunteering to Clean Up the Stach Accelerator Hub in Uyo.


STEEMIT IS MAKING ALL THIS HAPPEN, WHAT ABOUT YOU?

Steemit is helping me make this happen and we have been busy working round the clock to show that Steem/SBD can be used in the offline to impact quality good and so far, our little crazy experiment has proved us right.
The decentralization of the offline economy I set out to achieve with the STACH vehicle is yielding results and making my twisted world see the benefits of being crazy enough to think you can change the world.

Lusdon, I don't want to think this is an opportunistic message and to convince people of your good intensions, however, this post is about someone else making a difference in their community. I respect that inmensely. I'll follow you to keep updated with your cause also. The best of luck!!! Your hard work will also pay off.

·
·

What are your ideas for the future? :)

·

Excellent job, I like his passion and the drive in his achievements, building a global community for all through steem........... Thanks Boss ejemai

·

WHAT AN INSPIRATION, more people should do these kind of things

·

Great work, the world needs more people like Ejemai :))

·

great job!!! congratulation, keep working XD.

·

Thats what I'm talking about! Excellent work and should be an inspiration to everyone! @ejemai

·

That would be so nice to see that people in need benefit from steemit!

·
·

I'm sure that it will. I'll admit that it sounds crazy, but I honestly think that this platform can change the world. If it doesn't I'm sure that something else that works the same way will.

Although I was surprised to see that such poor people are already benefiting!

·

Nine through

·

Yea, He is doing well @danizaharie I am surprised I am just hearing about steemit today. I just joined.

Great job! That is a tremendous community outreach.

·

Thank you

This was the first steemit post I read and I have to say, it warms my heart to know that the steemit community is directly influencing change!

·

The Steem Blockchain is a change agent in its self and the world is changing for the better.

·
·

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who saw this potential! But I lack your initiave... >.>

·

Voted u up, cuz. Welcome to the largest shift in wealth in our generation. Its stuff like this that epitomizes the good that can come about from it.

·

My first post too!

It's incredible, I was expecting huge changes in the world, but not this soon, in this poor a place, and not so much! I was expecting steemit to create wealth in the middle class of 2nd world countries and well off 3rd world ones, not poor 3rd world ones.

If one of the worst locales in the world's enjoying so much success, there's no limit to Steemits potential.

Unbelievable work guys! Thank you for your support in all areas to improve people's lives!

Steemit has no doubt been a game changer in my life.

Same here! More and more people benefit and also learn to help more people through Steemit. I support you and your community.

I'm just starting to get it. This is what Steem is about. Great work Ejemai, it's truly enlightening

·

KINDNESS ALWAYS REPAYS ITSELF

·
·

The best things in life are free...!

·

Yes, Steemit is about helping people see what talents they have hidden and also hlep them briong it to bear on community growth and betterment. Thanks.

·

Good work . keep going

The accelerator hubs are a genius way to connect the local community to the rest of the world and teach innovative and critical thinking skills through communication and technology. Congratulations on making a difference!

·

Thank you @senseicat, your words are really encouraging.

Keep building, youre work is inspiring

Man you did somepthing there if we do this in all the areas we may actualy grow faster

This is so inspiring! Thank you for your hard work and for helping so many others discover the opportunity to change their lives for the better.

·

Thank you boss, you made all this happen by first believing in me to listen to my rants about decentralizing the offline and by helping make sure the Nigerian community got the support she could get.

·
·

nigerian will bee the best here soon good job

·
·

youre such an inspiration to us @ejemai. we are so excited for more updates. :)

·
·
·

Thanks for the kind words. More updates on the way.

·
·
·

Thanks @themanualbot, the Steem just helps us dream and then bring it to fruition.

Awesome this is a thriving example of equal opportunity economics that the local population needs despite the problems with country government

·

We do not need the government if we put our numbers and ideas to better use.

I really enjoy your exploration here~

That is so awesome! Steemit can really make the world a better place!

·

Steemit is indeed making the world a better place and we are glad to be a part of it.

Keep going, you are doing amazin job!

Wow, so much happy faces! Nice to see you, guys)

Ejemai you doing a great job, more than some of our leaders has or will do, I wish to be a part of your team,BT I am in osun state, I don't knw if there is any way you can assist so that my people too can benefit from steemit because I am a fresh sreemian.

Excellent christmas gift!

I really loved the passion and drive ......feels great that I am also a part of this society.

·

It feels great to have you with us @Maryahoc.

·
·

Thank you sooo much.

Great job I really like the passion and drive feels great to be a part of this community.

Wow this is superb, I never knew that steemit has gone this far in Nigeria and that certain individuals are taking it to the next level. This is great. I wish to belong to your community of Nigerian steemians. However I am way over here in Katsina, I hope there should not be barriers because of distance? Continue the good work you are doing while we try to emulate you.

·

Hi @izge, I am really excited to read that you are in far away Katsina and building your community. I am interested in learning more so we can add value to our community. Distance is no barrier and I will be contacting you on Discord or Steemit Chat. Cheers
Join the #Nigeria community on Steemit chat and ask of me.

you are doing great... steemit is a blessing for me... for the uprising of the price of sbd i finally am able to complete some of my dreams....

·

Steemit is a blessing indeed to everyone that has been associated with it. Steemit makes our dreams valid.

Wow... It's so nice seeing this, everybody should have this in mind either a steemer or not... We should provide help when we can. That might go a long way saving this our great nation nigeria

Great job! Hopefully 2018 will be even better for steem!

·

it sure is going to be the year where decentralization makes a main stay.

My question is : why is it that its hard for new authors to make money on this platform? I thought the whole idea for creating a community is to help others? But why ain't the bigboys helping the newbies by upvoting and resteeming their posts? It is as tho newbies are left alone to find their way by themselves. It

·

Hi @rannon, Steemit is a platform for the creative commons and that means you need the people who are and should be your friends to walk with you on this journey. I see everyone here as a bigboy and if you wait to identify one, you will never be fully able to become the best version of you. This is a decentralized platform that tells you, you can be great at what you do. Make friends, join communities, be relevant and contribute to the overall success of the ecosystem and then you will find the love you so desire.

·
·

Great comment ejemai. rannon you are not left by yourself go look at minnow support they give lots of useful help.

nice man keep up the good work

Your plan is too smart. You will go ahead enough.

·

Thank you.

This is so great to read. Keep up the good work!

·

Thank you.

This is just the beginning of steemit revolution in Nigeria congrat bro @ejemai

https://steemit.com/abuse/@lukestokes/whales-you-have-some-flagging-to-do

Please resteem or promote to finally a good witness that cares about this platform and isnt afraid to stand up to berniesanders....haejins followers upvote my posts and resteem....
.if your a whale or dolphin delegate to me your SP so i can stomp bernie aka justin for good...i delegated all my steempower to haejin already im weak 1

This is so inspiring. Truly revolutionary

At Enugu we are warming up, come January we are ready to ignite Enugu, the third hub belong to us.
#steemsoccer1

·

Of course Enugu is getting revved up for the Steem invasion no doubt

Congratulations 👏👏👏 Your project is great

·

Thank you

This is amazing. I would love to do this in America here in Florida many people have lots of money and are very rich and still many are also poor. I wish I could make a Hub in South Florida in the city where many poor people live on the streets with no home but in the same area rent for even a small office the size of this one in your video is at least $1500 USD a month with Internet around $30 USD and electricity around $120 USD per month so running something like this would be expensive but could help so much. Do you guys have any ideas how I can start something like this here in Florida more cost effectively? @ejemai you are doing such great things for #nigeria

What an incredible journey marked by significant success.

Kudos to you @ejemai, you are really on to a great stuff...

decentralised wealth is a task we all must actively pursue.

Nigeria must be a more pluralistic society, and it is the youths that must be the undertakers of this special task.

Great post! I support your hub getting bigger. vote for you :)

Super amazing and definitely worthy of a re-Steem! Akon, also has put in effort and has launched his solar power project, which provides electricity to parts of Africa where infrastructure is lacking. According to Wikipedia, "2014, Akon's group has operations in 11 nations, including Guinea, Senegal, Mali, Niger, Benin and Sierra Leone.” I agree, Steem is a blessing, because the technology behind the Blockchain is more than just digital currency. Great job with not only the post, but also the work behind it as well. Much success to all of you.

·

Thank you so much, the technology behind the Steem Blockchain is love and it is expressed for real here.

·
·

Yup, I agree. Anytime.

it was really crazy promotion ever,,,I like and apreciate it...
I will promote steemit in my area also
steem will widespread

·

Steemit will be widespread and we are on track to achieving that.

"I will be the government of my own community and make available these provisions" - thanks so much @ejemai for assuming responsibility for the young people of Nigeria. God bless you sir. And yea that's my brother doing the clean up of the hub; he introduced me to Steemit.

·

Hey welcome to Steemit and glad you are here. Your brother has potentials and I am sure he will do well here. Thanks.

I am very hungry to come and join you, in my own little way and one on one telling people about steemit. But i really need your help and support. Many people want to see the prove of my first payment, and i need people help on how to go about it. Please this is my phone number 07032932161 , my name is Abel from delta state. Thank as i look forward in your reply

·

Hi, we were at Delta State on the 20th for the first Meetup. You can contact @okoro, @destinysaid and @tojukaka and they will be able to get you into the Steem Delta group where you will meet like minded individuals.
Quick one,

you don't need your earnings to convince them, you just need to let your love for what you are doing do the talking.

Wow man, so great! Such a cool post as this made my day!

Very cool... I hope you bring more here :)

I like it! Subscription to you!

Keep pushing! Steemit must disrupt every other social media in Nigeria. We are just starting! Congratulations.

Thanks @greenrun, Steemit is making other social networks look like jokes.

Great job! to much inspiring.

Wauhhhh.... We Ugandan and rwandese steemians do appreciate your work. Though still growing we believe that we can reach to your level.
Keep steemit growing brother as we follow your step

·

I am happy to see you guys on Steemit and like I have mentioned to other Steemians, i will work with you guys to get your communities Steeming and becoming relevant in no time. Thanks for letting the Steem push you.

I was inspired with your work. As steemians we will try to make this world more beautiful.
