Well, it's been a helluva ride so far! I'm not planning on going anywhere either. Steem Monsters is kicking ass. I think we'll be sold out of Betas this month. Steem Engine is signing up some more companies and people with existing communities. PAL price is a little down, but user base is growing and more tokens are staked. I'm witnessing blocks every day. Price of Steem sucks, but life is pretty good.
I want a world that's filled with Peace, Abundance, and Liberty. When my kids are old enough to ask why is the world so broken? Did you know about this? What did you do about it? I want to make sure I have a good enough answer worthy of how awesome I think they are. In short the world has to change and that change has to start with me.
I see a world where cross border transactions help lift everyone out of poverty by giving access to income streams and a market for work. I see a world where what I want to say is protected by blockchain, code, and redundancy of networks all over the world. I see a world where people on the verge of suicide will get a word of kindness from a stranger half a world away and maybe that's enough to hang in there one more day. I see a world where the info I want public stays that way, and the info I want private stays that way too.
I see a world where we the people can hold governments accountable. We can see how laws are written, how things were changed, and by whom. I see financial transparency of global companies and I can know where their inventory is at any time.
I guess I see a world that's way less shitty than this one, and I think blockchain and Steem in particular have the power to bring it about.
Come for the ____ stay for the life changing crypto experience
Whether it's games, blogging, reading, watching, or whatever else happens in this crazy place I want people to come here as newbs, and leave as die hard financial gurus that understand the importance of knowing where their money comes from and what it means to use it. It's liberating, empowering, and by giving people choice it allows them to see the delta between crypto and fiat, decentralized vs centralized, and abundance vs induced poverty.
What I work on
You see the fruits of my labor in new cards, new plans, and new expansions for Splinterlands. You see it in new members for PALnet. You see it with new tribes and new services for Steem-Engine. But what I'm working on is making this world a little better than the one I found, and hoping that the impact I have can outlive my bones into the future.
If you are reading this then thanks for being on this journey too. I feel blessed to be here, and hope that my work makes your day just a little brighter.
