The comparisons between growth on Hive and outside the chain with real life situations continue to increase. Participation on the chain leaves a lot of applicable lessons from the information end all the way to investing.

There are some of these lessons which are a lot more pronounced on the Hive chain, setting precedence for a user to potentially follow the same trajectory in other to obtain results. Hive presents a unique opportunity with the ability to earn stake with minimal effort and a certain level consistent activity majorly through content creation, commenting and curation. This is of course evolving but these remain the fundamental options for everyone.

The entire crypto space is viewed as a long term investment, even though a few people get lucky with massive gains in the short term. Hive is no different, and growth is often with an eye towards long term yields.

In investments outside the space, a good number of us might not be able to lay the foundation required for long term investments as a result of challenges experienced with factors such as the viability of said projects and. personal Challenges

Yet for growth to happen it only takes the barest of efforts. The problem though is that it is difficult to actually measure the rate of growth until it begins to show significant results which is noticeable. Choosing to grow is a deliberate act and requires a certain consistency of effort to achieve.

From an investment perspective, choosing growth means letting those little investments compound until they bring about significant yields. For more mainstream investments, compounding may be difficult due to associated risks.

Here on Hive there is an opportunity to actually measure compounded benefits. It is then left to us to decide if we want to keep building until it gets to something significant. We can give up if we deem the benefits too small, or not worth the effort.

One thing that's certain though is that even the most minimal of efforts put into positive activity yields significant benefits over time. The only stumbling block per se is the length of time involved to see results.

Conclusion

Hive also teaches that time in our sense is very fickle and moves rapidly. One year quickly becomes two and before we realize, what seemed like a forever hits us with terrible speed. It Shouldn't be an excuse for deciding to forgo growth simply because it makes no sense if we have nothing better to do.

The Minnows who choose Consistent growth on Hive over the years are all Dolphins or Orcas now and with significant investments outside the space. Growth is deliberate, and any effort put into it counts in the long run.

Any growth on Hive is incumbent on, and entirely dependent on, the approval of the large accounts on hive.

DPoS with downvoting.

YOU have no say over that.

Hive is digital feudalism.
The 'lord of the manor'(large stakeholders), chooses your final 'rewards'- not you or your supporters.
Merit or talent - or hard work - is not a metric used on Hive.
Sycophancy and and towing 'the party line', is.

Clarity is good.

Very nice thoughts and explanation of the growth investment's essence.

The tone of the article is as calm as the strategy it explains. Earn slowly / invest slowly and compound these returns over a long period of time to reap the benefits in the long run.

The Hive blockchain is a perfect example of using this strategy and earning big with it.

Thank you for this great piece,
