BRO NEWSPAPER | ISSUE 29 | 2022
We try to keep you informed about the tribes which we have invested in with Brofund, since you, as a BRO-Holder, have also indirectly invested in those projects. Due to this, it's possible that you will see some tribes often, and others not at all. This hasn't got anything to do with the tribe itself, or that these tribes are not active. It's only because of the fact that we have not (yet) invested in these projects. Since @raymondspeaks is always on the lookout for projects on Hive-Engine to possibly support, this can change from week to week.
We have decided not to include more than 3 projects per week in the Bro Newspaper. This makes it easier for you to read, and you don't get an excessive amount of information. If I were you, I would pay close attention to those three projects, because they could become very interesting in the short run. For now, let's just say that your time and attention could pay for themselves!
With Bitcoin's surge in the past week, many of us will have been happy and sighed with relief. But is this true? Can we breathe a sigh of relief, have we seen the bottom? Has this been the turning point and can we slowly turn our eyes back to the future? Or are we fobbing ourselves off with a bull-trap? Is it time to celebrate or is it too early to even think about it? Time will tell. So let's not try to predict the future this week, but instead, look at things we CAN know for sure. What can we share this week about the protocols we support outside of HIVE and the tribes we support on HIVE?
TRIBE & PROJECT NEWS
In the Mancave it's a quiet week with no news. In this case, seeing no news is good news. @raymondspeaks is working behind the scenes, and will not immediately shout everything he does from the rooftops.
Brofi works properly and gives everyone the opportunity to earn back some BRO through a HIVE delegation. This, of course, depends on how much you delegate. But every micro payment you can receive increases the BRO in your wallet, and ultimately also the HIVE dividends that you get paid on the BRO in your wallet every Friday.
I've written about EMP a lot lately, and will certainly do so more often. But this week I want to start by drawing attention to a blog written by @rolerob. He's been diving into EMP and sharing his vision of what EMP is about in a great blog! His blog is very well put together and touches on all the important points in EMP.
Add to that the fact that the new EMP User Interface will go live next week, and of course, we can expect the necessary promotional activities.
EMP also celebrated its launch six months ago. Unbelievable, I feel like EMP has been around for much longer, but it was launched only six months ago. And the detonator was launched just five months ago!
In these six months, EMP has left an indelible impression, has become my number one protocol, and has changed my life.
@abrockman, and all of the EMP team members, congratulations on the 6-month milestone for EMP. On to the next 6 months with all the incredible things coming up for EMP in the near future. Of course, next week the launch of the new EMP UI is only the first of many events to come.
Just 7 days ago Marky announced that Blockheadgames is organizing a claim-drop in collaboration with dCity.io. Now we can report that this claim-drop has already come to an end. The enthusiasm was huge, and we hope that everyone has received the necessary students.
4 days ago @themarkymark posted the blog announcing that the claim-drop was about to end, and just moments later the claim button from promotion page on the HivePunks Website also disappeared.
You can still buy a rare Douglas, Rising Star NFT Card there for 10 Hive!
Work resumes in the newly furnished office in @blainjones' new home. Now that the move is over, it's time to return to the daily routine and come up with exciting things again. Listnerds and CTP are patient, but the users are always impatiently waiting for new use cases and extensions.
I've heard whispers that Blain did something remarkable last week, something that will be directly tied to CTP.
Unfortunately, I can't confirm these rumors yet, when I asked Blain directly about it he did share some other interesting information with me, but that information has nothing to do with the plans for CTP and Listnerds. So what's left to do for us if we want to see the latest plans right away is to keep an eye on the accounts of the team members, @jongolson, @blainjones, @elianaicgomes, and @ctpchat so that we're on top of things once the news gets out.
Given the tone of the message, I expect something that could send another shockwave through the CTP Swarm.
CONTESTS & CHALLENGES
Before you participate, check the announcement blog so that you see what the rules are.
I don't want to overflow the BRO Newspaper with contests, so if you want to find more, go ahead. There are plenty that I didn't mention here. But for us it's time to see if there's some juicy gossip to share.
When I asked Blain if he wanted to share information with the BROs, I got NO news about CTP/Listnerds. However, the only 'news' I got from him was that he had finally set up his fish tank. Yeah, quite amazing isn't it? A 150 gallon fish tank, that's huge! And beautiful! ... But we wanted CTP/Listnerds news.
However, I didn't feel ignored. Especially now that I know that even Jon didn't get to hear more than that Blain did something amazing. Blain didn't even want to tell him anything more because he was sure Jon would spill the beans. It's always nice when your colleagues/friends know you so well.
This last thing raises some questions in me. Usually, it's women that can be loose-lipped when it comes to 'secrets'. So in the case of the CTP team, I would rather expect that from @elianaigomes. However, because of this statement from Blain, I'm starting to doubt whether @jongolson secretly has some more qualities that you'd usually find in women. We already know he's vain (he's willing to stream every day for a reason), but there's also some loose-lippedness… I'm curious to see what else we can discover!
Discord is of course a great distraction, and it can also be a source of entertainment. Like for @melbourneswest who received an interesting DM. Of course, he felt very honored. Just a DM to brighten up his day. Unfortunately, the DM turned out not to be so much about brightening his day, but it was someone who felt excited just thinking of Melbourneswest throwing his 1 dollar vote on that person's post. Now you may ask yourself if that says something about Melbourneswest’s kindness, or does it tell you more about the mentality of the vote-begger. And it can also say something about the quality of the blog where the vote would have come ... It also says clearly that Discord is a blessing and a curse!
Since this is not a gossip magazine, I'll leave it to this. Next week we'll be back with some new juicy gossip.
Now let's talk about some serious business. Let's have a look at the news that is relevant to each and every one of us. And that's the:
GENERAL CRYPTO NEWS
Even in crypto, you should enjoy some free time once in a while, have a slow week and stay away from your screen. My partner has his vacation now. Which means that I'm online very little. More news next week! If you feel there's something in this newspaper you'd like to chat about with us?
