Announcement: 2nd STEEM Meet Up in Paramaribo, Suriname

in #steem4 years ago (edited)

Yes, it is official. We are having our 2nd ever STEEM meet up in Suriname.

On February 10th, 2018, we held the first ever Steem Meet Up in Suriname. It was a fun event, but mainly an awareness event about Steem, Steemit and understanding the concept of cryptocurrency in general.

It was a fun event, but I think only about half of the attendees actually ended up making a Steem account.

The positive news, we did get a news item about Steem on National Television which was good exposure. I could no longer find the video on my Dtube, but did find the newsitem on YouTube. Do keep in mind it is in Dutch.

This year, I think we will make the switch to really building Suriname Steem Community, as there are more Surinamese active on the Steem Blockchain and we now have both more companies and creators with interest in the Steem.

And yes, I promise to take more pictures this time, maybe even a dtube vlog.

This is very cool! The @pifc community has a couple free accounts that it can help you to sign up new members if someone can't get started via steemit.com for some reason. Typically the issue is proving who you are.

Think we have 2 tokens for free accounts right now and will be claiming at least 2 or 3 more before your event.

@pifc might be a good community for you to check out as you will be able to feature some of the new people in the curation contest who come onto steemit assuming they are writing quality content. Actually everyone can get involved in the curation contest and it's a great way to learn how to seek out content. Even a brand new person can benefit by taking part in the contest. It forces people to go out and engage with others while they are trying to find posts to feature. Then they will also get votes from @pifc and other community members on their entry post.

Overall it's a very positive way to be introduced to steemit as the community is focused on helping others. PIFC stands for Pay It Forward Contests, so that should tell you the mindset of the community.

Anyways we can chat more on discord tomorrow.

This post has been included in the latest edition of SoS Daily News - a digest of all you need to know about the State of Steem.

Thank you very much!

Upvoted and resteemed.

Will make sure to notify you when we post about the meet up!
