MY VERY FIRST TRIP TO SWITZERLAND - one of the most crypto and blockchain friendly place on the planet earth
|I believe I owe a STRONG apology to all of you, dear readers, who have been trying to contact me lately ...|
... via email, steemit or chatting apps and did not managed to receive a reply. I'm already aware that some of you felt ignored, which was absolutely not my intention.
Many of you are aware of my recent involvement in the development of @project.hope and also about my recent trip to Switzerland. This particular trip was one of the most important events in my current career and it required weeks of solid preparations. That unfortunately caused unwanted result: I didn't have enough time to carry on with my daily routine on Steemit for the past few weeks.
Today, I would like to share the results of my efforts and ask a few questions, hoping to get some valuable advice from you and others.
INTRODUCING STEEM TO BUSINESSES
|It had been my very first time to Switzerland ....|
... and it's quite obvious from the very beginning how crypto and blockchain friendly is this country.
The main reason behind this trip has been to introduce STEEM blockchain, Steemit.com and the concept behind SMTs to a CEO of an existing SWISS company. I've also managed to mention a few words about @project.hope.
I spoke for a number of hours with this company's CEO (When the time comes, I will let you know the name of the company) . Luckily, I went through similar conversations quite a few times in the past and I felt quite well prepared. However, I still found it very challenging to explain the idea behind POWERING UP, delegations, upvotes and curation rewards.
HOW TO EXPLAIN IT ALL?
|Perhaps it's the best time to ask you, dear reader, to drop a comment ....|
and share with me how YOU would explain the idea behind upvotes, rewards and delegations? Imagine that you're talking to person with basic knowledge of blockchain and strong crypto believer, however it's also a person with experience mostly in traditional financial markets.
I attempted to clarify how it all works by comparing POWERing UP to purchasing and holding some shares on traditional stock market and receiving "dividents". And those "dividents" depends on our contribution to STEEM blockchain as a curator.
Meaning: if we support quality content with our limited upvotes than a STEEM token holder, then we are able to increase received dividents (curation rewards).
Does it make sense?
I've kind of struggled when I've tried to explain the idea behind delegating STEEM POWER to other users. It raised several questions about real ownership of delegated SP, reasons why investors would like to proceed with delegations, benefits for users receiving delegations etc.
|Perhaps someone here would have any idea how to put in a few words on what delegations are about? Or maybe you came up with a better way of explaining the idea of powering up, upvotes and rewards?|
At this stage I'm not going to reveal the name of this company I visited, since there are still few things to discuss between me and their management. However, I would love to share with you all some great news, that came as a result of this particular trip.
I managed to get them interested with @project.hope and the goals our small community is trying to achieve. As a result, this project will receive financial support for the upcoming half year, which will allow us to continue our growth and should be enough to cover some basic expenses (mostly financial support to a few Venezuelans supported by this project).
I also managed to discuss more important issues: being hired as a project manager and being part of the team responsible for launching a fully legal STO and tokenizing this company's assets.
HOW COOL IS THAT?
I've mentioned a number of times that i see Steemit as a place where one is able to get to know valuable people from the tech industry and create amazing business opportunities :) However, since this post is already very long –
I will share more info in my next post (tomorrow!). So stay tuned ! :)
Do not miss it :)
