Hello Steemit! Actress, Singer and Fianceé of Charlie Shrem !

Good afternoon SteemIt!!

First off let me introduce myself. My name is Courtney Warner and some of you may or may not know me as Charlie Shrem’s fiance, but that’s not all I am :)

I am an actress and commercial print model. I wanted to write an intro article and tell you how I got involved with Bitcoin and Steem. Here is my IMDB Page

I do want to say Congrats to STEEM and BTC for trending today at the highest its ever been! That is amazing!

So, I’m going to break this up into 2 stories, so bear with me. It was the year of 2013 when I used to be a cocktail waitress at this nightclub called EVR in NYC. This bar has changed my life for the better forever….One I met my future husband Charlie Shrem, and 2, I was introduced to Bitcoin for the first time. EVR was the first nightclub/bar to accept bitcoin as payment for your favorite mixology cocktails, and I was one of the first waitresses to do the early transactions for BTC.

It was quite simple, for people that don’t know how a transaction is performed. Basically we had an I pad and the customer had their iPhone or Android, or whatever cell phone you had at that time. You would pull up a QR code (that bar looking symbol thing) and match it up to the persons phone the transaction would go through and Voila. There you have it our very own first bitcoin transaction. I was still not really aware how big this Bitcoin thing was but when Bloomberg, CNN, etc was coming to see what this new phenomenon was then I was starting to realize this was a VERY big deal. Who knew that BTC would be my way of living for the rest of our lives.

Now onto how I found out about Steem. One day Charlie was all excited in telling me about this other awesome new platform that artists, and writers, etc, have a way they can express themselves and get paid for their posts. I thought this is an amazing creative concept, on how to express yourself through another avenue. This I thought was great with me being an artist so I could totally relate to this new endeavor. We met with this guy by the name of Ned Scott for lunch in PA one day, and who knew that is how we would be involved with Steem. So ladies and gentlemen that is my introduction to the crypto space. I hope you enjoyed this article. Have a great day!

Courtney

Welcome to the world of friendly community @courtneywarner

Follow me @Yehey to get in touch.

Welcome to STEEMIT, Courtney! My only real question to you is how, as Charlie Shrem's fiance, was he only able to convince you now to finally start posting?!

I know though from my own experience, it's not all that easy to convince even those closest to us to start posting (and of course, there is a bit of a learning curve as well). However, once they do, they're usually hooked!

So, now that you've written a few posts, are you hooked on STEEMIT yet?! 😁 lol

hi @alexpmorris very good question. I was on the fence because I really didn't understand it. But when Charlie and I went to Germany I met a lot of kick ass people that were part of steem and it just intrigued me more. Also, i don't consider myself a writer, so I think I was scared to be honest. Although yes now you could say I am completely HOOKED! Steem rocks!

That more or less often seems to be the way the story goes! And even for those who first come for the rewards, once they start "feeling" the community, they're totally hooked!

Welcome again, and look forward to "seeing ya around"! :)

woow thats so sweet ,she must be the happiest fiancee in the world and on STEEMIT !!!

Great intro! And the first to comment @charlieshrem is very sweet. Best of luck, look forward to more posts

Welcome! You are a pioneer for Bitcoins - "1st transaction"!

Welcome Courtney!! We met briefly at Charlie's Coindesk talk last fall. Great to see you onoboard and hopefully we can all meet in the city again soon!

Hi @hansikhouse which city? lol! Bear with me I'm still trying to figure out how to meander this thing:) Nice to see you.

It was in New York! Close to the end of November I think for a Coindesk talk with Marco.

Welcome on Steemit, Courtney!

thanks @herverisson:)

Welcome to Steemit! I hope you like it here as much as I do. Where we live there are only few places that accept BTC. I experienced paying with it at a restaurant for the first time few months ago, and every time we go there the manager calls my husband and I "the bitcoin couple" because we were the first customers he had using BTC. I'm always learning from others, so feel free to connect with me @lulita 😀

Well it's always nice to hear stories like that:) Where are you from? I think we are ALL always learning from this wild west we call crypto currency:) Thanks for reaching out @lulita!

I'm from Cuba, but I live in Tampa, FLA.

Welcome. Good introduction!

Welcome to Steemit. I am sure you will love it.

Thank you very much for this post. I have followed and upvoted, please do the same thing for me to help each other.

Hi @courtneywarner and welcome! I plan on following you as I think you'll have more neat and exciting things to share :) I'm new to this platform myself and I really love it. I think I'm getting slightly addicted to it actually...lol. Anyways, I look forward to future posts.

@jen8 I know exactly what you mean, I'm already addicted:) Happy Steeming:)

Good having you @courtneywarner. Enjoy your stay in steemit. You look a happy fiancee. God bless your relationship. Welcome

Thank you for the kind words @ebohio:)
