LEO pays my Bills - How $15 served me and family

I have always heard of people saying plan B and just maybe I did not understand what plan B or another Alternative actually means until I experienced something interesting yesterday.

It always good when we are in need and we turn around to find out that we have something we can lean on when a situation arises and we do not have cash in handy at that point in time but can always get it from the blockchain.

Of a truth, I still haven't grown the way I am supposed to grow financially due to the fact that I shoulder many responsibilities as the first and only daughter of the family and for now the breadwinner since I lost my dad.

This isn't actually the first time Leo has helped me foot my bills and expenses, or probably the second time actually but these actually surpass the first as it not only left a mark to be remembered that someday like this, Leo foot my bills and because of these, I can boldly admit that LEO has helped me stand up and stand out.

The same way I sing my praises of Hive for how it has helped me for the past one year, the same way I get to sing the prases of Leo.

For a few days now, I have been ill and unable to do anything really on the blockchain but then I was in deer need of money to sort out some financial problem and of course, I have been living on blockchain as the source of my income after I lost my job due to the pandemic period covid19.

The moment I read this post by @Uyobong at how much worth in Naira his LEO curation was, I decided to check my balance to see if mine could amount to anything. Lo, it was worth over $15 and that fetched me NGN 8,000 at a time as this when I had nothing (as per finance) but with loads of expenses- food, drugs, and other personal essential materials.

Honestly speaking, I knew I was going to get some amount of money but I never expected it to be that much as I got the alert with the sum of eight thousand Naira. I was surprised, so I decided to go back and do a re-check of my wallet to be sure I saw the exact amount that I withdrew.

You can't blame me if I was surprised that much because I have not really been serious here, or maybe I wouldn't have been so surprising if it came from Hive because yeah, I have gotten a huge amount from Hive. So I was surprised when I got such a huge amount of money from LEO.

This experience has actually given me a new perceptive about the future of LEO. LEO is one day going to be an employment base for so many people on the blockchain.

LEO has not just given me a shoulder to lean on when I am not financially buoyant and when I felt there was no hope of getting any cash but has given me an understanding that many can earn a living through making quality content on LEO. LEO will one day put a smile on the faces of thousands of people who believes in it and work hard to gather more tokens.

For those people who are yet to believe in it, I hope you don't get to regret it one day and for those who believe in it and are working hard to accumulate, keep up the good work because LEO will one day sky to the moon and won't stop but will keep going.

It's stories like this that I love most about Leo. The thought that people can actually make a living by sharing their content and interacting with the community is beautiful and a glimpse at the great things blockchain could do for society as a whole.

Forgive my illiteracy on the matter, but how much is NGN 8,000 going to buy you? What are your daily expenses for food, drugs, and essentials combined?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

You are right, there are a whole lot of things blockchain can do for society as a whole if we learn to adapt and learn.

Okay thank you for that question but you know in a situation when you have nothing on hand right at that point, NGN 8,000 can go a long way. For the food, we don't cook daily so I don't expect to spend the same amount of money daily and for the drugs, it is just for the meantime as I am sick and need to take drugs.
Notwithstanding, NGN 8,000 has covered most of my important needs for this weekend and that of next week.

That's really great! Thank you for your response and get well soon :-)

Thank you for your time and I am really happy you asked. Thank you.

Without a doubt. If people come on here and apply themselves while looking to make the place better, they can benefit. There are thousands of LEO being distributed daily to people.

A country like Nigeria can really benefit. It adds a lot of money, proportionally speaking, to an individuals personal income.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

And at the same time, it offers us a glimpse into a world that most of us simply would have never learned about otherwise. I mean what do I know about Nigeria? Or Venezuela? In the daily news I'm served, these countries are non-existent.

It's a win for everybody!

Not just an individual income. The economic issues in Nigeria is also affecting institutions. That's why my next ride is to help onboard institutions here. I'm starting up with sports, then academic and others.

I totally agree! It reminds me of the "good old days" of Steem and it's encouraging, fun and thrilling at the same time. I am a sucker for "success stories".

What a wonderful account to wake up to on a Saturday morning. May the blessings from your efforts continue to rain down on you and others! :)

It is indeed wonderful. Thank you so much for your prayers and Amen to them and I wish you the same.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I read @Uyobong's posts and now yours. I'm pretty happy while I read these stories. It makes me value LeoFinance much more. I only wish you the best and that one day you could use this platform for a living.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you for creating time to read through and I can see these stories are going to help on your journey here on LEO because of the value you will have for it.

Thank you once again and I hope so too, just one day because it the rate things are going, jobs employment are going to be hard to come by.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Practical and practical content is valuable to newcomers.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah, practical content helps because it helps to build value for what we are going into.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It's great that the blockchain is helping you get some things you need to get by, here's a couple of Leo to help out. Mabie, sometime you could do a post about how much things cost in your country, that always interests people on Leo Finance.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you. that's what matters most if what we are doing can help us get our basic needs of life. Okay, will do something about that idea. Thank you

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That would be great, let me know with a comment if I miss it or something. On some days there are so many posts that I can't keep up.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Sure will do just that.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

hello, I was meaning to write a post on what we discussed about but I wanted to be specific, so that is why I am asking you, which of the things I should write on?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That is a sensational idea. It will be great to see what the household expenses are in a country like that. It would really put things into perspective for us on here by being able to see what each of our upvotes is worth in the necessities in that country.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah that would be interesting, it's sort of like @spinvest is doing. I'm proud to say my vote can buy a cup of coffee at McDonald's, or something off of the dollar menu. LOL

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

it's sort of like @spinvest is doing.

What do you mean? What are they doing specifically?

Yes it is interesting when we can equate an upvote to a certain item. Obviously, those upvotes go further in a country like Venezuela and Nigeria. I look forward to learning how much my upvote is worth in those countries.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I'm sorry for the lack of details, it was @spinvest-leo and we share what things cost in our area of the world. It very interesting to see what we all pay for things.

Ah okay I didnt know what you were referring to specifically.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

He is talking about the "How Much Does It Cost" series on the @spinvest-leo account.

Venezuela
Your 100% vote equals 28,347 Leo, trading it to Hive, this would be
28.347 * 1.75 = 49.64 HIVE

It depends on the exchange house you choose in my country. I know two, that one is valued at
49.64 * 104,565.76 = 5,191,749.43 Bs.F
in dollar amount
5,191,749.43 / 855,871 = USD 6.06

It would help me to buy various foods in my country.

It would really put things into perspective for us on here by being able to see what each of our upvotes is worth in the necessities in that country.

Very apt. We just have to localize our engagements of this chains as well as our earnings to e able to inspire local participation. This is the power of decentralization. Every culture, tribe can engage seamlessly and earn tangibly.

It's time we encourage localized BUILDings. Let's imagine a simple dapp that can solve locaility specific needs. That would earn some great attention of the people out there to the blockchain.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I would definitely read a post like that!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Your story is very interesting. Knowing that the blockchain helps us pay bills is great. I've been reading a lot of good things about LEO, even better than Hive, I think I'll get in better shape with them.

Thank you. pratical content like these inspires us to do more on the blockchain because we are sure of better future.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

LEO is one day going to be an employment base for so many people on the blockchain.

Without a doubt. We are already at the level where countries like Nigeria see an impact with the earnings from LEO. It might take a while longer for some other countries but there will likely come a day when thousands are earning their "living" off LEO.

It is exciting to read stories like these. This shows the impact that we are having on people around the world.

My hope is that more Nigerians join Leofinance and realize the opportunities that are being presented on here.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Sure and that day is sooner than expected at the rate at which lack of unemployment is driving the masses.

The impacts is what I call slow but steady and very soon, so many Nigerians will get awareness about this platform and their opportunities at the rate the impact is going.

...The moment when we realize that crypto is changing our world and our way of living... Great post and thanks for sharing!

Well, that's what crypto's for after all and that's why we have these rewards around here. For people who put efforts and get rewarded. Really nice to read such posts. I am having the goal to live off of blogging one day so I kind of get your position.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

You are right, that's the goal of crypto when it was built. Thank you, your upvote goes a long way.

Lols... it isn't actually a bad idea after all but I actually think you are already above my position.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I can understand the feeling to some extent. LEO proved the importance of Tribes on a social media platform. We are not just hodlers of the token, we are also the governors of the future of "our" token/project altogether 😌

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It is cool to know that you can understand the feeling I am conveying in my content.
LEO has indeed proved so much as been a tribe on social media.
Lols... you can say that again.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Posts like this are the reason I consider developing countries to be the best fertile grounds for crypto adoption. Hourly minimum wage of a developed country could be enough to pay a monthly rent in some developing countries.

In many countries even teachers, accountants etc. earn only few hundreds dollars a month. Few trending posts can help a random blogger live better than a respected middle class job. That is a huge selling point.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

You are right about this, many middle classes do not get as much as a blogger gets in a month. So crypto is really helping so many people who believe in it.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I wish you the best for you and your family. It's awesome to be part of something that just started.

Great post @evegrace! Of course, I'm an advocate and a living testimony of earning money online. It had really helped me a lot! There used to be a time when my parent gives me money for my stay on campus. Although as a new student in the university, the money was enough per month ($50), however, with time I got to know I could barely survive with such amount. I believe they are doing the max they could do because Im not the only child but I needed to source for money elsewhere which got me info doing things online.

In fact, I came across leofinance a few hours ago out of curiosity and I'm probably the newest member. I hope to make something outta here doing the right thing. Any help?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I am quite new here also but you can follow the likes of @uyobong blog and others who are old in this platform to help you around in this place.
Welcome once again because you sure will get what you are looking for on this blockchain.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you! I've already reached out to @uyobong on Discord.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I'm happy that you were inspired by my post. Your testimony is just a little part of the much value you can draw from this chain. Just stay put and engage the communities. You can achieve quite more financially with Hive, particularly in the tribes.

The LeoFinance community is on the lead and delivering more valuables to as many that'll stay around. Ensure you engage others. The way to earn is through comments in the LeoFinance community. I personally aim for 50 comments per day.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you, sir, your posts are always an inspiring one. I surely will stay put and try to engage more.
Wow, did you say 50 comments a day? Isn't that too much?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Congrats! Being able to put something on your table just because you were active online seems too good to be true but it is!

Keep producing and soon you'll earn a lot more! :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta
