Six years on HIVE blockchain

in Silver Bloggers7 months ago

And it deserves some retrospection and reflections

Six years on HIVE.gif

On this day in 2017, I joined HIVE (aka Steemit then) and it has been a tremendous six years, expressing my feelings on this chain, in the form of my blog. In fact my crypto journey started that year itself with one of my friend pinching the idea of investing in bitcoin. Remember the Gainbitcoin scheme from Amit K. Bhardwaj ? It was found to be a big scam and I had a meeting with him , after which he shared some presentation. Some of my friends invested without getting into the details, but I insisted few more meetings to go into the detailed level and fortunately they never happened. Some of my friends lost money, thankfully I did not invest but I learnt about crypto and joined this platform. Since then I have invested in #HIVE - my only crypto holdings as of now, because I believed in this community.

Since then, I have been a long term believer and have increased my stake on this platform, whenever possible. Usually I express my feelings in the form of my blog, and most of my posts include what I do in daily life. It's as if I am writing my own souvenir for myself, for my family. A decade down the line, it will be a lovely experience to see them again. That's how I see this platform as a true representation of social media on a blockchain. However, the chain poses a lot bigger potential in terms of use cases, if we evolve to build some more use cases (apps) that would create some passion for people to write minus the monetary part.

Remember the @waivio platform created by @grampo and his team ? Recently he mentioned how rewards as high as $10.00 for sharing two photos of a restaurant dish weren't enough, despite having hundreds of participating restaurants.


So they are now exploring another open business model: with a focus on social shopping. I like the idea, and these are the kind of apps that will help us achieve the next level - reaching to masses. We don't need to spread the idea of rewards at all, instead we need to provide the usability that would create some passion for people to get involved, as rightly said in this post.


Microblogging in the form of Threads is really a great addition , and the mass on-boarding campaign by @leofinance is certainly going to take it to next level. However, we need more such apps, that would provoke people to participate on the chain in some form. I would like to share a personal idea here - a honest review app, that one can use to write a review about any product or service. I am sure, everyone has a story to share on the products or services they use. It just needs to be authentic with original content, in the form of evidences. If we can write an app for that and reward them, we will probably take away Amazon Reviews from Amazon.

We just need to be authentic and build more usable apps and I am sure, 2024 will be ours. And lastly I would request all our whales to show up their faces often and express in public forums, why they love this chain or build on this chain. Some are already doing, but the more the merrier. In fact, a collective forum would be lovely.

Congratulations on your six years on HIVE! It's great to hear that you've been a long-term believer in the platform and have seen it grow over the years.

I agree with you that HIVE has a lot of potential in terms of use cases. The @waivio platform is a great example of how HIVE can be used to create new and innovative applications. I'm also excited about the potential of Threads and the mass on-boarding campaign by @leofinance.

I think your idea for a honest review app is great. There is definitely a need for more authentic and user-generated reviews on the internet. If you can build an app that provides a platform for people to share their honest opinions about products and services, I'm sure it would be a success.

I also agree that it's important for HIVE's whales to show up and support the community. Their voices carry a lot of weight, and they can help to attract new users and investors to the platform.

There is definitely a need for more authentic and user-generated reviews on the internet.

As far as I know there is none now, that has only real authentic users.

Happy Hiveversery! Stay blessed 🙂

Thank you so much.

You're welcome 🙂

Congratulation! You were just a year behind me joining. We have seen a lot of changes. I like to see people using the platform in different ways, but we do have issues. What gets regarded as 'over-rewarded' is a matter of opinion, but we should not be driving away those who could help it grow. I'm interested to see what the future brings.

Have fun!

The debate on reward is always relative, we need more usable ways to engage people.

I´m sorry I missed this post my friend, wishing you a belated Happy Hive Birthday! You registered here a few months before me but I count all 2017ers as local OGs :) Your journey has been impressive so far. All the best to you in the years to come!

All the best to you friend, I am very happy to read your post too that you have been doing very well on this platform for the past six years. I always read your posts too and love all your posts. And above all I feel very lucky to have met a friend like you on this platform. And I pray to God that you continue to progress in the same manner in the future.

Happy Hiversary!! Congrats!!! 🥳

I believe that those blogs in which we leave our thoughts and our daily life will eventually be a great legacy for our family.

May it be many more years for you on the blockchain!

I've tried to get into WAIVIO thing, but I can't really bring myself to use a different front end. I find that much of my content gets lost if I try to use one of the dedicated front ends. It feels like I get more eyes when I just use PeakD or Ecency. Congrats on your Hive birthday by the way!

Peakd is definitely on top, but then what waivio is building is probably going to open doors to many new apps. But usability is the major factor though. Let's wait and watch.

I need to check it out more because I do quite a few posts from restaurants. I used to be a bit active on Tasteem back when it was around.

Congratulations @sanjeevm bhai
