As you know, I'm going to cash out my SBD rewards until I get my wedding paid, leaving all SP on my accounts and SP rewards on them as well.
Today I didn't quite know what to write about, and I had spent some time doing the math on expenses and what I already had, and what I'm waiting to withdraw (doing it when price gets a little better) so I thought...
...since you guys are paying for it...
That it would be nice to give you an update on how it looks like.
So far, 2.94% of it is paid. I started withdrawing one week or so ago, so it isn't looking bad.
Here's How My Progress Looks Like:
So far, from the total cost of $20 000 I was able to save up $1260.
That's roughly 6% as the USD numbers aren't what I get or the cost, but approximates because the cost is in Euros and so I also convert what I get to Euros...
This means there's only 94% to go.
On the other hand, I also have 400 SBD and 100 STEEM ready to withdraw, I'm now waiting for the SBD and STEEM price to increase before cashing those out.
It's getting real, that STEEM will have a real-life impact on my expenses... which is different since up to this point I wasn't withdrawing a thing, so I never had this experience of witnessing results from the blockchain materialize on my wallet.
It's good, but at the same time I get pissed my SP pool isn't growing because of it... but you can't have both things.
However, this makes me think I'll be back to powering up sooner than I expected, if only prices keep on being at the $4 level throughout the rest of the year.
What's the Source of This Income? The Blockchain! You Guys!
Now, where does all of this come from?
From the blockchain!
But how does the blockchain know what to pay me? It's you guys!
By voting on my posts, you have been donating and supporting this endeavor... you have been paying for my wedding one vote at a time, and that is simply magical.
I already thanked them for it and they know I mean it.
This update should make YOU see that STEEM does have the strenght to impact your own life, and that what you can get out of it has to do with how much value and hard work you put in.
Let's face it, bots are giving people more losses than ever before, and if once they were profitable and after this period they were "break even", they now give you MASSIVE LOSSES, so you can't blame bots for enriching people anymore.
Only your friends, audience and readers can enrich your account, and its up to you to provide them with value.
Do it often and prove it to them you're willing to put in the hard work.
How Will I Repay the Blockchain?
By continuing to believe it in, no many how many months Hard Fork 20 continues to be late, no matter how manual signups suck, no matter the limitations.
I have always tried my best at making the blockchain succeed, and I'm proud of it.
I supported what I considered to be good initiatives, even though some failed to take off the ground, I created communities, made DBooks "best seller" (shameless self-promotion) and took actions to enrich the blockchain...
...but I didn't do it just from the kindness in my heart!
I know that by investing in the blockchain, the blockchain would reward me.
All in all, the best advice I can give you guys is:
- Forget about competition here, we are all in the same boat and what separates success from failure is if the Boat gets to a good port or sinks in the process.
Let's take STEEM towards bountiful shores!
