RE: Can we pause for half a second and say congrats and thanks to Steemit? We're breaking multiple records right now!
I think the pump today is just a great sign of people believing in something enough to help it succeed. Without all the people on here like you and many other major contributors helping to grow steemit and prove to the world that it's worthwhile, it would go nowhere.
I think that's a major difference between steem and other altcoins at the moment. Steem has a working platform with thousands of users who support it and make it great. Sure, it's got fast speeds and no fees, but the real bread and butter is the people.
I think as time goes more and more people will come to steemit because they see a group of people who believe in change, positive change where people are boosting each other up, sharing each others content, and giving each other value. I'm really glad to be part of the community here and look forward to doing my best to help it grow and thrive. Only wish I was hodling more haha.
Happy new years everyone :)
