WAVES BLOCKCHAIN JUST HIT BLOCK 800,000 - A FULL YEAR INVESTED IN WAVES! - THE FULL POTENTIAL POWER OF STEEMIT HAS NOT BEEN REACHED!
The growth of the waves blockchain
As I await the 800,000 block of the steem blockchain I realize how much I have learned since I start my journey into the world of cryptocurrency. All of my growth into crypto first started because of steemit when I joined back in august.
When I first joined steemit I had no Idea wtf I was doing but I was tired of facebook and steem offered to pay me for what I contributed. So I decided to put the effort in to join. This is the power of steemit!
I invested in waves it in December of 2016, after learning more about crypto and earning steem from this platform (after steemfest). When I first learned about waves it was at 0.30-0.70 USD. Nothing was functioning on the website (besides wallet) but it seemed like it had potential based on the layout. So I put about 100$ in which bought me about 278 waves tokens. I put it into the waveswallet.io then I forgot about it and started to hodl. Here comes block 800,000!
After that I kept on steeming and trading on poloniex with my steem rewards (Gaining 2 btc and losing it all due to reckless margin trading). Was pretty crushed about my losses and stopped trading for a while.
Luckily I learned about the rules of diversifying in trading, so I had spread out my investment even if it wasnt much at the time. Recently I remembered about the waves investment I made in my waveswallet.io and decided to check on it.
I found all these assets I had gained because of my stake that I had invested in waves. Some of them were actually pretty valuable. The most valuable ended up being the 12,500 mercury I was given and the 10 Ethereum (not sure why I received eth though).
I realized that putting money into the waves and holding it in the wallet was an amazing decision. I have made a lot of amateur mistakes with trading but I have also made a lot of really great decisions too! Now waves is around 15 USD and their website and all wallet tools are fully functional. Oops missed the 800,000 block while typing this.
