Why I Bought a Whole Bunch of SteemPower Last Night

2 months ago

I’ve consistently added to my SP since early June. Back then I wrote about an interview with CEO Ned Scott. Long story short I came away bullish on the prospects of Steemit. That hasn’t changed.

Plus, I’ve Steemed consistently for three months now, giving Steemit the fair chance it deserves. Like anything good in life, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. Steemit is no exception in my opinion.

So that’s why I found myself buying a bunch of SP last night. @blocktrades, what an efficient service.

What I’ve found with Steemit is that it’s a great place to find quality content, connect with the community, have your voice heard, and yes, even get paid for it.

There’s other reasons to like it too. Steemit is growing like wildfire. Last November there was around 100k accounts. Now, less than a year later, it’s around 325k. Wait till they start doing a little community building/marketing.

You also have to like all the steemtools being built around the platform. It’s the power of open-source in real-time. You can market your articles with services like @minnowbooster and @randowhale. You can deposit some SBD and earn interest with @bellyrub. Plus he does marketing too. Can’t live without Steemd. I’m also partial to SteemFollower and SteemVoter.

Really, that’s just a small sampling of what’s out there. I can’t wait to see what they’ll create next.

And of course @hilarski was all over it the day before. I like the vote of confidence.

The timing on my buy has turned out to be fortuitous. Perhaps some others reached the same conclusion as the same time.

Even with the bump in price I’ll still be adding to my SP.

I think it’s worth at least $3 in the short-term and much more longer term.

Wouldn’t be surprised to see Steem at $5 at year-end.

What’s your prediction?

I came to the same conclusion and I had been waiting for the right time. Had a good chunk of SBD waiting.....watched when it dropped "just right" on the internal market about a week ago....and jumped on it and spent every SBD I had.

Certainly can't complain about it right now, that's for sure. But hodl for sure and stay the course.

Great timing, building and hodling too.

love the bots

Good on you, Steem on! 🚂
Probably should've bought two weeks ago when price was low, but in the long run today is still cheap!

·

Still a good buy!

good article i think about buying more SP

·

Nice!

steemit is a great platform the more investments you do the more profit you get

·

Agreed!

I think it’s worth at least $3 in the short-term and much more longer term. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Steem at $5 at year-end.

I think so too... though I'm keeping my money in waves.... my prediction is $2.5 by the end of the year.

I think I'll convert some (maybe more than "some") of my SBD to STEEM, thanks for this post!!

·

You're welcome. I like WAVES too.
