Nine Months on the Hive Blockchain - Still Lots To Learn

Thank you to everyone on the Hive Platform that has provided me support over the past nine months. Please continue to share with me so I can learn even more along the way.

Nine Months on Hive Blockchain

Today marks my nine month anniversary on the Hive Blockchain. I am finding the more I learn on and about the Hive Blockchain the more there is still to learn. I am extremely thankful to the communities that have provided me the training and support these first nine months that I have been on this platform.

The Market will Go Up and Down

In the nine months that I have been on Hive, the market has performed like a roller coaster. When I came to hive, the price was a around $0.40 USD. It spiked over $3.10 and now it is around $0.90

Accumulation is Key

The one thing that everyone has shared with me is that if you are in it for the long term, ignore the price fluctuations and accumulate Hive and associated Hive Engine tokens. I have never been much on following the price of crypto currencies. Since crypto is so new and not yet part of mainstream, I totally agree that you should accumulate as much as you can.

I have been following this advise during the last nine months. There are times, I get excited when the price pumps but then I remember that as quickly as it went up, it can come down.

Use Case, Community and Development

As @jongolson has stated, focus on the crypto currencies and tokens that offer you a use case, a community to participate in and a platform that has great project development. The Hive Platform has all three of these for all users to take advantage of. Almost all of the other Crypto platforms do not offer what Hive offers.

There are so many projects with excellent use cases and communities on the hive platform that if you do not get involved in some of them it is not because they are not available. It is very easy to get lost in all of the information and projects that are readily available at your finger tips and more being announced every week.

Blockchain-Gaming

I am really starting to get addicted to all the blockchain games that are on the Hive Blockchain. I am playing Splinterlands and Rising Star on a daily basis. There are days that I lose track of time playing the games that I forget to do other things. The games are ever being updated so you are never bored. I am also watching others stream their playing. I have so much to learn about how to play better but I know with time that will happen.

Nine Months of Progress

Over the past nine months engaging on the Hive platform and following the advise that I have received have gotten me this far. @Hivebuzz provides information about your account so you can see how you are progressing. I am now ranked 7,644 on Hive Buzz with 652 posts. I became a Blue Minnow along the way, next stop Dolphin. Yesterday, I received my badge for being Upvoted 30,000 times. I have received 34 Weekly Author badges and 6 Monthly Author badges during these past 9 months.

If I continue, doing what I am doing, I wonder where I will be at One or Two Years or Five or even 10 Years? Oh, and even though I do not watch the price, I know for a fact that prices go up over the longer term so in 10 years the price of Hive will probably be way up there.

Congratulations on your progress thus far. Those are some great takeaways from the last nine months. I have been here around 3 years and still feel like I've barely scratched the surface of learning. EVER FORWARD!!! Indeed.

And we get to learn at a pace that suits our timetables and needs. I like learning without having to take tests for a grade. Just apply the knowledge as it is acquired. Take Care and Have a Great Rest of the week.

I just hit a new milestone. You were my 4,750th reply. I am finding that my timetable does not have as much time as I would like. I need to rebalance again according to my priorities. Take care.

Congratulations on the milestone. Glad I could help. I find I have to recalibrate the priorities myself quite often. Have a great day and weekend. 😀

There is a lot to learn but keep at it, you seem to grasp the major points.

As time passes you will find that there is a lot being created and offered here. We are expanding in ways many did not think about even a year ago.

That is correct, I was never exposed to any blockchain before nine months ago. I am glad I found Hive as the first one otherwise I might have lost interest quickly since those others do not offer as much and the community support that I have received here has been extremely helpful. Take care.

Congratulations on your milestone! There is much indeed left to learn even when I have almost been on Hive for three years. I do wish for more time to explore all over the blockchain with lots of other new dApps too. Much success to you!

great achievements and there's always something new to learn here. Keep having fun with what you're doing, otherwise what's the sense. The great thing about HIVE is you can find what you like to do and still contribute and earn!

Just keep building and you will be fine. Overall with all the development happening on HIVE, I don't see it going away anytime soon.

Me neither. With all the developments, it does make it hard to choose between projects.
