Steem Torch & The Power Of People

in steemtorch •  29 days ago


A few days ago a notice popped up on my phone via @Partiko ....

steemtorch

Sweet! I thought, that's awful nice of @stackin to send me all that STEEM :)

I then discovered what the transfer meant and it got me even more excited to receive that 325 STEEM..Which I turned around, added some more and immediately sent it to @kenmelendez

Wait a minute.....

"Jon, you are telling me that you got 325 STEEM sent to you...Added another 25 and then sent it to someone else?"

Exactly!

Welcome to Steem Torch!

This amazing community project was created by @GeekGirl almost 2 weeks ago - You can check out the original post here. And in those 12 days, it has amassed a total of 377 STEEM between 20 Steemians....The end goal, get the 'torch' passed around to 1337 Steemians and see what the total will be!

At the end, the STEEM pot would be either burned or donated to a commmunity run project to help the blockchain...No matter what, the end result is a HUGE win for STEEM.

So back to my #SteemTorch experience....

It started with @stackin sending me the STEEM and then I added a few STEEM (which apparently broke the rules lol we're only supposed to add one STEEM per transfer). The pot was sent to @kenmelendez and then Ken sent it to @steemcafe

Guess what I woke up to this morning?

My good friend I.J. decided to send that torch right back to me....

So this time I actually followed the rules, added my 1 STEEM to the pot and fired it off to @exyle

Why @Exyle ?

If you've gone through the @steemsavvy training you know there are a few people I recommend that everyone follows when they join STEEM...

Mark (Exyle) is one of those people!

He's helped my journey on STEEM by creating content that regular people like myself can actually understand and get excited about when it comes to this blockchain.

'STEEM information for the rest of us...'

We may not be computer scientists and some of us even have trouble pressing 'record' on our phones....(Honestly, I have even messed that up! Sad I know...)

But we're fired up about STEEM and love when we understand what's going on...

Steem Torch is the perfect project to showcase our excitement for this community and I think @exyle is the perfect Steemian to send the torch to next!

There is real power here on STEEM.

Real community!

And I believe Steem Torch is a fine example of that...

Want to learn more about Steem Torch?

Be sure to follow @GeekGirl as well as all the Steemians the torch has been passed to!

And let's see where this ends up when we reach Steemian #1337


STEEM is all about...People! And the thriving communities that are forming here...We would LOVE to help you on your STEEM journey...

it’ll be cool to see if we follow the rules or some of these whales start dropping hundreds every time they get the torch.

you are right sir, steem have the power to unite the thoughts of other people.Maybe we're strangers back then before we knew steem. But when introduced to us, later on steem introduced us to the world with many great people. I love that idea but I think for I'm not qualified of it yet. I'm not good enough.hehe

Nah. I think it’ll be passed around to plenty of steemians before it’s done :)

Great stuff going on here , Jon. Mark is a great Steemian for sure.

Be interested if this Torch comes around to my territory :)

·

thanks man. yeah i agree. one of the best on the blockchain.

There are various methods to make money, if someone uses his brain like you

·

lol we can all use a little bit more brain power :)

Such a nice experiment. I am patiently waiting for those 1337 transfers.

I really hope that the amount will be used for a good cause. Maybe funding a program...or charity. In any case this just indicates the trust and the power of human relationships on this chain.

·

agreed. so awesome to see people come together for a good cause. best part is. we have no idea what that cause will be lol but we believe in community.

That's an awesome experiment man! We should have an equivalent of the Olympic Games (keeping the proportions), I believe that's where passing the torch idea originally started.

·

yeah it is. people to people right. that’s the power of community.

Really cool idea and stuff started to passout the torch to next good person. Hope it can be a good number of STEEM can be collected.

should do really well at the end of this.

Posted using Partiko iOS

Cant wait to see it end up in the hands of some "controversial" subjects. lol.
Wonder how it will end up. :D

·

lol hope not. worst thing would be for someone to get it and then cash out lol

Posted using Partiko iOS

Great, keep it going.

yessir. the train has already left the building :)

Posted using Partiko iOS

An interesting initiative to collect money. That shows how creative this blockchain is.

·

right. it’s amazing how creative people are here.

Posted using Partiko iOS

This is a great idea, it will be interesting to see this moving ahead with new steemians.

·

already moved a few places. 1337 should be hit quicker when more people know about it.

Posted using Partiko iOS

So awesome! You could say the torch is picking up STEEM. #1337 will be made a dolphin!

·

Think the last person can either burn it or send it to a steem based project. whatever happens tho. it’s a win.

The Steem Torch is an idea I have never heard before and is a cool way to crowdfund a project after it passed through influential and aspiring people. Hopefully it doesn't stop while reaching the final milestone and will surely keep an eye on what the promoted project will be at the end.
Cheers, great finding you here!

·

thanks for the comments. yeah it’s a pretty slick little idea. hope it really starts to snow ball

Mark @Exyle is a legend of our Blockchain

·

Agreed. I highlighted him, @stackin and yourself as the three guys people should be following to begin their @steemsavvy journey. need to add a few more to that list but you guys have helped me more than you know.

I’m so happy for this moment, I’ve waited for a little while to see where the Steem torch which is becoming a Steem fireball is going from our friend @steemcafe! Coming back to you worth celebrating!

I’m heading over to make a new friend called @exyle, it’s fun to me and I am enjoying myself!
