Top Indian News Publication—TheQuint Features My Story as an Early Adopter to Bitcoin, Steemit & More!

in steemit •  last year

The Quint features my story as an early adopter to Bitcoin and Steemit in India in my piece titled, ‘Someday, I Would Love to Pay My Income Taxes Using Bitcoins.’

I took this opportunity to write about @steemit as well as incredible projects such as @vaultoro and few others. Steemit was also mentioned earlier this week and there's more info on that below.

Read the full story here: https://www.thequint.com/blogs/2017/06/28/blogger-paid-in-bitcoins-cryptocurrencies-in-india

TheQuint is one of the top digital news publications in India popular for their high quality pieces across various subjects including Technology! A highly reputed organisation in the Indian media circles that I was once part of few years ago!

A week ago an old friend from my days as an automotive-journo and a very senior editor in the Indian Media industry, 'Roshun Povaiah' reached out to me on behalf of 'TheQuint' for a comment which was published in his piece: Still Unregulated, Bitcoin Trade From India Jumps in Global Market

Let me just tell you that this is just the beginning of my efforts because:

I'm going to take Steemit across India and to the rest of the world!

I'm going to be conducting conferences such as the one I did recently. The next city will be Bangalore, the IT hub of India!

Thank you for your attention, support and following my work!

@cworldv99 thank you so much for your comment! I hope we can keep growing like this! :)

Keep spreading the word of Steemit @firepower. That is all I do when I talk to people is cryptos, cryptos, cryptos.

What price do you think Steem will be by the end of the year? Hard to tell now because we are in this minor correction.

·

Thank you so much.

It is hard to predict that far away we just have to wait and watch :)

·

Dude thank you for your response. BTC status is still in the gray. We have a long way to go here. But you can buy/sell and there are many localbitcoin agents as well. People are excited and also nervous about this.

I'm glad you liked the article. Thank you for the questions! I'll write a post around BTC in India soon!

Fancyyyy ! now you're pretty much world famous !

what will you do with all this new success?

·

Even before any of this my focus was on helping users here, building the community and take things to the next level. I will continue doing all this and more! Nothing has changed for me. :)

@firepower, you are numero uno in India on steemit. Great post, great recognition. This is going to be huge now !!!.Congrats. thank you for introducing me to steemit 😊👍

Hii @firepower i saw you post and i enjoyed reading it, could you please have a look on my daily analysis for Bitcoin and give me your opinion. https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@ohamdache/midday-update-of-the-bitcoin-price-29-06-2017

Awesome. Now that India has legalised Bitcoin, let's hope that cryptos gain more traction and legitimacy across the world. If so, the sky is the limit :)

For those who might be interested in my blog, I hope to gain more support from the Steemit community. I recently hit 150 followers, which I mostly attracted over the last few days.

As I wrote in a previous post "I hold great value in sovereignty, unity, natural law, authenticity, abundance, creativity, truth, justice, love and just having some good old fun, so all this will drive the content I provide."

If any of that interests you, feel free to follow my page. Cheers.

India has yet to legalize it. We've got a long way to go before a proper framework is drawn.

Thank you for reading and responding.

Sir your vision is an inspiration for us ....Jai Hind

·

Thanks. Jai hind!

Already onto it. You can check out my other blog posts and find all details about it.

Love this post keep up the good work

·

Thank you. Glad you loved it.

Your post is really great to let the Indian readers know the effect of bitcoins on the Indian economy. After the major shortage of currency during the demonetization phase in India, the potential of decentrallized currency like bitcoins is increasing rapidly. There will come a day in future when all people will prefer to accept and give payments in cryptocurrencies. Your Bangalore shop example is really a good sign of this future.
