Remember When All You Could Do With Your Leo Was Stake or Trade For Hive?

in LeoFinance4 months ago

lion3576045_1920.jpg

Who was here when you would get paid 0.02 LEO Every Time You Made A Comment?

That is when the LEO team won me over.

Was it because I wanted that 0.02 LEO?

Yes, it was. And also because they knew what they needed (people to use their interface) and they knew how to get them (pay them).

The amount back then was minimal. 0.02 of something that traded for 0.02 of something that was worth 0.10USD.

But they knew how to gather a crowd. And the crowd they gathered knew those micro pennies were precious seeds to be watered.

They are not fully bloomed yet.

Now I am thankful for all that time I spent reading the early leo articles, and commenting while Power Rangers played in the background.

Now times have changed a little.

My downvote value keeps going down in LEO. It's ok though, because it continues up in USD.

Why?

Because there is sooooo much one can do with LEO now.

Do I want to stake it? And keep fattening my upvote? See what other airdrops come of it?

Do I want to dip my toes into w/LEO?

Do I want to buy bLEO?

Maybe I want to trade for cub? Or trade for BNB to make sure I keep my wallet plenty gassed up?

Do I use it to fund a farm? Do I part it in a DEN?

Do I invest in one of the new tribes? Do I buy some LBI?

Logging on to upvote is the new getting paid to comment

How much money do I leave on the table every time I let my Voting Power get to 100??

Did you ever imagine that a "side project" would be so profitable.

And all you had to do, was invest your time, believe in a team, and keep what they give you locked tight.

For all the newbies

You are in fact the OG crew. We are growing so much, so fast, and there are so many people coming, that you have already been here a long time.

Stack your LEO, its the home base. Fund at least 50 HIVE into your main account.

Log on.

Make comments.

Post when you have something relevant to post.

I don't happen to post every day. When I don't have anything to say, or don't see a hole that needs to be filled. I don't.

I do make comments though. All day every day throughout the day.

And I use all my upvotes.

To all the not quite diamond paws

We did not hold for whatever cent hive. Wait for the dollar!

And of course, this is my opinion that I came up with on my own and do not hold any credentials whatsoever to give financial advice.

Unless you consider the fact that in the cryptosphere I am a grandma.

grandma can you tell us about the place that was like a train?

Oh yes dear, I actually think I left some tokens parked there

And I think Leo now has it. Many users but still can't be as much as peakd but at least their strategy work.

Glad to be classed as an OG with my very first post here on Leo Finance! There was something very poetic about your post.....a bit of inspiration I needed to consider spending more time on the platform!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you for the compliment. I am happy to inspire.

And yes, every week there are new people and every month there are "new" people who suddenly realize they are not so new.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Hey, your post is the very first when I go to LeoFinance! That's pretty cool! I've personally been really enjoying your posts about Cub and other parts of the DeFi world - if any of y'all reading this came to this post from the Leo frontpage, too, consider checking out OP's other posts! !LUV 1

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you for letting me know that. I was able to see it when I read your comment and I got a nice screenshot of it :)

Love the compliments, thank you for taking the time to read my work.

Command accepted!

I'm new to this community, and I don't really understand what you're saying, but I'm interested when we get paid just by commenting, I don't know if just by commenting we get paid, it's great to find this post

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Happy you are here.

You don't get paid to comment every single time you comment. Only when someone upvotes you. Stick around and you will see exactly how it works.

For now, just keep reading and commenting. In seven days when payouts start coming out (that's how long it takes) you will start seeing that income in your wallet.

Feel free to come back and ask questions. Sometimes there are so many questions we just don't know what to ask. Most people here are very friendly, helpful and generous.

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.

I'm pretty boring. All I do with Leo now is stake it still. It's still important to me to grow the original stake here. I've got a bunch of Cub as well, and I've in a couple farms and the Cub den. I'm just not funding any of that with Leo that I earn here. It's good to have options, though.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That was me.

Until the team announced that we might want to HODL liquid leo. I did. CUB came out, it took me DAYS to log in, I "lost" the 10,000APY opportunity, I FOMO'd in with my liquid LEO and then ... I think I will go back to staking... Or buying CUB...

Here's a story
There are two tokens I sold a long time ago
One was Dporn - that was in a flash as soon as I received it
The other was actually Leo but - only because I didn't think I'd be able to contribute in any way to the community and I needed some Steem to hit Dolphin which I wanted to before going to Steemfest
I don't beat myself up over it but if I had hung on to it, there'd be a better story to tell eh
To be honest, I don't have much financial content to write about and sadly for me, I just can't seem to ignite the interest, though I have tried, so in a way, I am still where I was when I did sell it - not much to contribute
It is what it is...

On another note, I am so happy for you, look at you go Mama(or grandmama hahaha)
I remember all the goals you set yourself for passive income and ta-dah :D

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you!

I remember when I told my family I was making money selling porn...

I bet you are happy to become a dolphin BEFORE the split. Nice moves, nice moves.

We can't follow all shiny things in the crypto world, there are just too many of them. Just in the past weeks i've been talking myself down from chasing vibes and cinetv, and and and. There have also been some bad investments: marlians, hyno...

Thank you for taking the time to read even if you don't write. I bet your hive engine wallet has some drip income from the tribes, even if you don't chase the $$.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Humble beginnings!

How much money do I leave on the table every time I let my Voting Power get to 100??

Absolutely this.. I thoroughly enjoy burning down my voting power to the 80% area by days end rewarding content creators. Also enjoyable waking up and see it recharged the next day for another rounding of content discovery.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I do love the way this system works.

I look forward to the day hive is so expensive that I can lease my RC’s

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Delegating LEO to the @brofi account will also earn for the LEO tokens you hodl. :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I will NOT be delegating my precious LEO!

But I did delegate weed, ccc, lotus, and stem. I love receiving a drip income token in drips.

Thanks for commenting.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

You're welcome @metzli. Just enjoying my time here and connecting on the platform.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I am here when u can get paid $1 to comment.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yes!

Back then, the interface paid you to comment wether you were upvoted or not.

Thanks for commenting.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Ok

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Comments are no longer paid on default :))

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

And all of this coming from the HIVE community... where I started almost 4 years ago with just a few 100's of the previous blockchain tokens... and now... I can upvote your post for more than 1$ just on HIVE... plus all the bunch of tokens I have on HIVE-Engine...

It's been a wild road. Hope it stays this way!

👍

I found the recommendations for beginners incredible, as I found them very useful for me.

And definitely the best way to earn in the short and long term is to invest LEOs in LP.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I love building my Leo power.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

You are a great ambassador for LEO Finance and HIVE. Like you, I have done very well after joining this community. I spend a great more bit of time curating and commenting on posts than I do authoring.

More and more people are learning the advantages of being involved in all the different projects that are rolling out. The greatest value to me is learning about finance as I have no expertise on that topic.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you!

I have learned a lot about finance just being here reading and commenting.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Leo is making sure we stick to everything they throw at us. More will come and that micro blogging can’t wait to see what will come out of it.

I’m surely going to use that to grow my tarot business.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

And I arrived two weeks ago, with Leo and Hives on my account that I didn't even know about?

And since then I am here, loving it all and trying to grow more and more!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

We are glad you are here. We have been waiting for all these new users!

Still the best crypto and social platform out there in my opinion!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I agree with your opinion.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I joined quite recently and I am still unsure what the voting percentage means, or how you actually earn Leo for commenting. I looked over the FAQ, and I might just be blind, but I am not finding the info on it. Regardless of any earnings the articles posted are mostly informative and fun to read and I will keep trying to get my footing here.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

We have an upvote system.

An upvote is kind of like a facebook like, except it is worth money.

How much your upvote is worth, depends on how much money you have invested in the community (staking).

You earn by commenting, because people like me, upvote your comments, and then you get paid for it 7 days later.

Keep asking questions, most people here are more than happy to answer or point you in the right direction.

Have you created your first post? A popular first is a post introducing yourself. We love those here, and you will surely feel welcome once you write it.

Thank you for letting me know. I have not created a hello post yet. Looking over most of the posts here it looks like they all need pics and headings and subheadings. I am not creative enough to make posts look pretty.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It is easy to make them pretty using the interface.

You get a picture from pixabay or upsplash.

You make the letter bold by outing ## and I’m front of your words

That’s all you need.

You can do it! Post!’

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Your my grandma because I just got started here hahaha

I wrote my first post but I can't figure out how to change my profile pic and my header. When ever I try, it gives me an error 500. :(

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

People like to feel like they are winning. People are also attracted to what they feel good at and everyone wants to be on a winning team.

One of the areas that the LEO team shines is knowing that if everyone wins, they will win.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yes! I love working in a place where your growth in value makes me grow in value.

Thank you for commenting. :)

It's amazing to see how the project has grown. I remember getting the airdrop and selling at some point after the hostile takeover by Justin. I thought everything would come crashing down but it didn't. Hive survived and Leo is doing more than just surviving. It is thriving. The community is growing bigger and as you mentioned leo's utility has multipled. There is a wide range of things one can do with Leo. The compounding effect of holding is mindblowing. No one told me it was this easy to become rich. Just hodl.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Holding on after that fork was a good decision for me.

Glad you are still here, and yes, just HODL!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I sure will. I think Leo might hit $5 this year. So I am holding on to as much as I can earn.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I would love some $5 LEO.

Hey @metzli, you were just shared some LUV. See the LUV tokens in your wallet at https://hive-engine.com or learn about LUV at https://hive.blog/@luvshares

Oh how times have changed!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Great advice. Early on I realised making comments will help you grow more than you post when you are a newbie. I am following the same strategy. It works like a charm.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Glad you are here. I look forward to
reading your posts.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Same here @metzli, gave you a follow!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Make comments
Really can give Leo for newbie?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

If your comments get upvoted, yes.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

LeoFinance is definitely growing, and I'm honestly glad some of the OGs like you still remember their roots, but most importantly actively engage in the community!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I love it here :)

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Way back... waaaaaay back, there was this thing called "Steem-Engine" and I was excited about because it seemed like a first step towards having interest based communities. And one day, I was airdropped some "LEO" token in a community then called "SteemLeo." It made sense to me, because "crypto and finance" seemed like a nicely defined niche for a community.

And here we are... sooo many things have happened, which just goes to show that our communities could very well be what takes Hive into the future... seems like it's already starting!

=^..^=

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I was there!

I felt like that was cryptos version of having your stocks split. But then we split from steem and things really began to multiply.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The possibilities are seeming to become almost endless. I think with time the only problem we will have is making the decision of where to invest it!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Right! Do I buy more cub... do I stake... HODL but HODL where?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Why not do ALL of that

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

What a lovely post!
You got me fully covered!

I don’t always post and comment, but, I show up every. Single. Day. To curate those I follow :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yes! Thank you.

We live authors but we need a lot more readers than we need writers.

It's only expected, the community grows with such awesome leadership and within the spirit of decentralization.. it's only expected, Leo now has a Cub.. Talk about growth..

I've only been here at Leofinance for a week and I love it. I was chatting a little bit with people on discord and asking questions because I didn't really understand certain things, but I'm going little by little. I think Leofinance is great for me because my passion is trading and market analysis.

I hope to contribute a lot of valuable content for everyone here in the community. Best regards!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I look forward to reading your content! Leo
Has a lovely community.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Great post, really enjoyed it, I was unsure what has been happening these last few days since I starting using @Leofinance @ecency @dbuzz @hive.blog and @peakd I struggled to understand the ecosystem and just how to post, add picture etc, but I am slowly getting their and it's down to articles like this thank you for posting

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

You are very welcome here.

All of those interfaces are connected. I suggest using just one until you figure out how to best use it.

Anything you post on leofinance will
Show up on peakd. But everything on peakd will only show up on leofinance if it is tagged correctly.

Hope you enjoy your stay here.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you for the warm welcome, I was struggling with getting images on @Leofinance so a friend suggested using @Peakd for the images and tagging @leofinance, it seem to be working, I will just go between these for now and tag the others, thank you

There was a time when you could get an auto 2c for a comment? Lol how did i miss that?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It was an awesome time.

Tribes were just getting started. Everyone wanted their interface to be used.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

The days of $0.14 Hive and $0.20 LEO are long gone lol Time to build the future! Many use cases for Hive and LEO and many more still to come it's only the start and it's only really been seeing the forefront here for the last 2 months!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I hope this run lasts a loooooooong while. I am ready for some of this $0.13 hive i bought to earn me some nice curation rewards.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I remember when it was less than $0.30 and I had none. Now I have more than 1K and I haven't bought any. Beautiful!

I am now realising the potential of Leo but at the time when I was being given all those worthless tokens I sold the 300 Leo I had for like $10.... :)
I'm slowly rebuilding it though!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Whoever bought your LEO is thankful you sold. The good thing is that we are still very early. You’ll be able to brag about earning LEO since before it was worth $2USD.

Cub finance burns are gonna take this place far.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I have been away from the blockchain for work, I did not know that at the beginning they looked for people to comment and thus gain votes, a very good marketing strategy when you have a future project because it is paid so that they know the project, fall in love and then stay of your own free will hehehe, greetings

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Greetings.

They sure won me over. I have learned so much here. So much.
