Introducing A Cryptogeek To Hive

in #introduceyourself7 months ago (edited)

Hi Everyone

I hope you're all doing well. Without taking much of your time. I'm a crypto geek and I'm in my late 20s. I got redirected to this site through this link some weeks ago.

What came to my mind was that I'm not a crypto analyst nor trader who can easily find it easy to understand crypto. My friends in school days do talk about crypto on their social media pages but while its exciting to them. Its not to me, because a close family of mine once had an heart attack due to his obsession with trading crypto after he lost all his savings.

I was scared myself, and sorry for him that he had to go through all that. But to my amazement, after getting help from friends and family he didnt hesitate to go all in with crypto trading back in 2020 and the fact that he's now well off on his own financially strikes a cord in me. And this inspired me to create new problems for myself by going all in with crypto .

When I asked him why he did what he did, he said he has gained knowledge enough to recover his loses and his first loss was important because he was greedy when he shouldn't be.


I looked for places to learn about crypto and found Hive. So here we are.
I chose this username because im a crypto geek so be prepared to anwser my geekie questions when they come up thanks for reading.

Your passions, funny or dead serious rants, brain waves and - or thoughts put into writing and a hive blog is a new way of living, but if you have questions let us on hive know. There are many hivers that will help if you ask in comments or in discord! Terminal is the biggest one for new comers.

Discord is a tip aswell. It’s where a lot of hivers talk. There is so much so all topics will have a place on the blockchain. The hivinguniverse is so diverse it’s suitable for all of us. And fun!

Welcome to hive @imacryptogeek. When you have time, You can read some of the communities in this post that you may like : OCD Communities Incubation Program and for all hive communities you can check

The important thing is Hive is a bit different from other social media platforms since you are monetizing your blog. You can't include content that you don't own without sources. For more information, check this post: Why and How People Abuse and Plagiarise. If you have questions or concerns, you can hop into OCD's Discord server and we'll gladly answer your questions.

Welcome to the Hive community @imacryptogeek!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Seven suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, Keychain, Peaklock, and Hivesigner,
  3. The master password and the owner key are only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own.
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once , and
  7. DO NOT OPEN any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @brittandjosie and @jamerussell from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Hiveans available who can help you; you can click to go to The Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Hiving!
