Today I'm 3!


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.

Vision

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.

Happy birthday to you. I know you from afar. Your actions speak louder than words. You see, some people have the power to change the world but can't, some want to but don't have the power, some have the power and can change the world... It's a privilege...
I'm proud of you 🀞🀞

I'm looking forward to the next three years.
What about "old-fashioned advertising"? I'm thinking about merchandising. Caps, t-shirt etc. (Steem-monsters, Steem-Engine) Is there anything planned?
Let's bring our vision to the world ;)

This passage motivates me a lot. Maybe because my wife is about to deliver our first son.
You’ve been excelling with all your works. I recognize all the effort that you’ve been adding to steem blockchain. Keep up the good work. Thank you. Really appreciate that.

Wow, we have the same Steem-birthday (but I'm only 2!) It's amazing and inspiring to me how much you've accomplished, even just this year. I am honored to have been even a small part of these projects.
Steem Monsters is awesome and Steem Engine is awesome!
Happy Birthday!

That was impressively well said @aggroed! I am 100% loving your vision. So much so that I’ll be casting my witness vote for you and what you do later today.

Thank you for all of your hard work to make the tangible and intangible world better here on the Steem Blockchain... AND Congratulations on being here for 3 years! #HighFive! πŸ™Œ

This is (as of a couple days ago) my year 1 and I can’t imagine growing and building on any other social media platform! I’m here to stay as well! πŸ™‚

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.

I completely agree. I envision a much better world and I want to be a part of that change. I want my children to feel that their father did what he could to better it in the ways he was able to. Unfortunately, in a world built to keep you down... it's not always so easy. I struggle just to get by, which means there's not a lot of money to put up for much else. I have so many ideas, but am limited by my finances so much, it sucks. That doesn't deter me from trying though, hence me being here, trying to earn a little something off of my activities/words/ideas. It may take time for us, but I think that if we just continue to be conscious of things like this, for our kids' sake, we will prevail.

Congratulations btw. That's quite a while! I am just starting out, but I intend to stick around indefinitely.

I did have a question about steem-engine though, as it seems you partially run it.

Could you possibly enable a wallet feature that hides "0" balances? I keep getting tokens I don't care for and they keep showing up even after I've gotten rid of them. Obviously it's not a very big deal, more like a simple feature request. I can't be the only one who's been annoyed with all the tokens popping up and then still showing up in my wallet after I intended to rid myself of them... lol

Also, splinterlands? Incredible! Love what you've done there! The game is incredibly fun and requires a tactically strategic approach and I like that.
Only thing I would kinda like a bit more clear on that as well, would be things like how do we know what card is going to attack first? Is there a speed stat I'm missing somewhere? Maybe this is just me.. but it seems as though there's no way to tell what monsters are faster than others and I feel that that is a big part of strategy. I think that if you can put as much information as possible as to what they do on there, that would help a ton in formulating strategies! You seem to have just about every detail thought from what I can tell. I just didn't see anything about their speed was all.
