Challenge! - Steem: The Honey Badger of Communities

You know it. I know it. All the Steem community knows it.

You can buy stake and a company, but you will never buy a Community.

It doesn't matter what Blockchain we are talking about or what coin is being discussed, the community is the most important part of it. Without it, without users, there would be no point of running a Blockchain.

We have proved the crypto world that it doesn't matter the size of your wallet, the community is stronger; we have demonstrated to all the skeptics that DPoS can be attacked, but will not go out without a fight; we have showed all the Bitcoin maximalists and all the Altcoin non believers that we're organized, know how to stick together and work for a common goal and, most importantly, that as a community we are unstoppable.

We are the Honey Badger of Communities.


But we must not halt now. Now is the time to to keep pushing. Both for decentralization and for the sake of the community, we must keep spreading the word about how we fought a central entity, how we stopped a hostile takeover, and how we are more than just more than a Blockchain or some coin holders.

Because some people out there, might not know it. It our duty, no, not our duty, our commitment to the community to tell everyone about this.

The Challenge

Make a drawing, a painting, a photography, a GIF, hell you can even make a meme about this topic: Steem: The honey badger of communities, fighting to protect decentralization and DPoS.

Post it on Steem using the tags #hive-174578, #steem, #honeybadger, #blockchain and #posh. Remember to post it both on the community and on your steem Blog.

Share your art/meme post on Twitter (not a link, only other frontends allowed) using the hash tags #steem, #cantbuyacommunity and #decentralization.

Share your tweet on the comment section of your post so we can go to Twitter and retweet it.

@ocdb, @blocktrades and I'm sure some other whales/curators will be curating these posts depending on the effort and quality of the post.

Joining this challenge doesn't automatically earn you a vote, you must put effort into making your art/meme and it's up to curators to vote on it.

Let's fight decentralization and this hostile takeover together.

Let's spread the word about how we are the Honey Badger of Communities!

This is a @blocktrades sponsored challenge, don't forget to vote for them, @ocd-witness AND all the real witnesses of the Steem Blockchain to show your support for decentralization!

I like how these guys will take it against a bear, a snake, some Lions or whatever, they kick ass (very much like us haha)

11.03.2020 12:16

They savagely and fearlessly attack almost any other species when their barrows are intruded upon.

Yes, very much like us.


11.03.2020 12:23

Do you (whoever reads this) like riddles? How about this?
What’s the most epic challenge?


11.03.2020 21:46

Getting rich from automatical bot posting to Steem

11.03.2020 22:52

There is an epic hype about overcoming challenges.
What's the point of this hype as long as people are so fearful that they ignore our reality?
Are you tough enough to accept our challenge or is our challenge too big for you?
What challenge?
Deep inside you have always known what it is. What you know you can’t explain. You feel it.
You've felt it your entire life that there is something wrong with our world. You don’t know what it is and it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad…
The feeling - artistic edition:

Our challenge is everywhere, it is all around us:

In case:

Our challenge is a system, my friend. That system is our enemy:
As long as people are unaware of our reality, they are part of that system.
By helping people be aware, we can dissolve the system.
Why are we on the way to live in a world of total control and lose our freedom?
Did you know that everything is done through people?

  • Continue working hard to create your own enslavement because they obey to the low values that were planted in their mind, because they don't have freedom of choice, because they're unaware of what's going on, because people who know what's going on keep the knowledge for themselves or
  • Invest their time and energy in creating a better world, because they can choose better, because they are aware, because people who know what's going on offer the knowledge they have.

Just like in any other game our victory is not automatic. The 2 scenarios depend on how well we (people who have knowledge) play.
Our game doesn't last forever, time is short so a good question might be:

  • How can we help people be aware of our reality, in good time?

How can we be winners as long as we obey to our challenge?
When you don't stand up for something, you're nothing.
We don't have time to clown around. Do you want to make a deal? How about this:

  • We can be winners or
  • We can be losers, right here right now.

Time's up. What's gonna be my friend?

This sounds like so much fun! Will definitely take part in the challenge! :D
Memes are my thing!

11.03.2020 12:00

Sounds great! Looking forward to your entry!

11.03.2020 12:15

Made my entry!

12.03.2020 19:56

You're right: challenges can be fun.

  • The bigger the challenge
  • The bigger the thrill so

What’s the most epic challenge?

11.03.2020 21:45

I'm not an artist or meme-maker, but I know we have lots of great ones!

11.03.2020 12:03

Hey, every effort counts, might as well give it a try!

11.03.2020 12:14

You talked me into it :)

11.03.2020 14:23

Neat idea! I will try to take a photo that captures the essence of this movement. Time to think.

I look forward to seeing all the creative entries.

11.03.2020 12:10

I always find fun on these, and now we can have one to spread the word about how we are kicking ass as a community 💪🏻

11.03.2020 12:14

Remember to post it both on the community and on your steem Blog.

How do you do that ? I am sorry to ask, but I am still catching up with all the features of community.

11.03.2020 12:25

I was wondering the same! New user to Steempeak. I normally post through @actifit and i noticed those posts don't show up on my Steempeak blog. 🤔

11.03.2020 13:10

You have to resteem your post from the community to your own blog. There are three little dots by the payout figure. Hope it helps.

11.03.2020 13:27

Helps a lot, though i am not sure what i am doing!! Thank-you for your guidance.

11.03.2020 19:52

I think it posts to the blog automatically, but you need to have the hive tag first to post to the community. I think that's what it means.

11.03.2020 14:27

No, @livinguktaiwan said it right, we have to resteem to our blog. Interestingly, it creates a notification :)

11.03.2020 15:04

So we have to do a resteem after posting and that puts it in our blog? Thanks for clarifying it!

11.03.2020 17:51

I am known to suck at these things really bad but I think I will give it a try, embarrassment aside :D

Btw read your post about that crypto meet up in Berlin too. So is that where you decided to make the base for your current European mission? I thought it was Austria... Anyway, good luck over there buddy :)

11.03.2020 12:51

Our community continues to amaze me! This contest aught to be entertaining!

11.03.2020 13:12

already made some and today will be the new one. I'm in.

11.03.2020 13:15

An opportunity for our artists to show all their talent and creativity.

With art you can also defend Steem. Go for it!

pd: badgers know how to defend themselves

11.03.2020 13:23

Hopefully we'll get a lot of entries!

11.03.2020 14:22

Great contest here @Anomadsoul. A few days ago, I made a long essay blog on the theme of this contest. You may check it out here. Nobody can buy a community for real.

11.03.2020 13:36

I'll check the post!
And if you want to join this initiative, everyone is invited even if you already posted about it

11.03.2020 14:20

Great to see this initiative but lending your voice to onboarding and educating new users to help us counter the attempted hostile attack would be much more helpful and also be a more effective strategy for us to actually come out victorious.

Disclaimer: Just an impartial observation on my part and not intended as an attack on you, Ocd or @blocktrades.

That such a disclaimer is necessary should be illuminating about the changing landscape of our community.

Cheers and keep fighting the good fight.

11.03.2020 13:55

Awesome idea, @anomadsoul! I'm definitely going to keep my eye open for results I can tweet out! Since I created this gif last week (inspired by a tweet from @andrarchy), I'm not going to enter it into the contest, but thought I'd drop it here so people can share it, if they'd like. 😊

Good luck everybody! 🍀

11.03.2020 14:00

Nice! Yes, exactly things like this is what we need! Well you can tweet it again, post on steem about it and I'll definitely curate it since I missed it the first time

11.03.2020 14:20

Coolness, and done! Here's my post link -

And here's my tweet -

Thanks for bringing a spot of fun into the day, whilst we wait for news from the latest meeting, @anomadsoul! 😊

Community does not matter. It is the product that matters.

11.03.2020 14:55

Sure. But what good is an excellent, superb product if there is nobody to use it?

11.03.2020 15:22

If the product is excellent and superb then people will use it.

11.03.2020 15:32

If the product is
Excellent and superb then
People will use it.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

11.03.2020 15:32

But why do you want people to use it? You just said community does not matter, why do you want it?

11.03.2020 15:53

I could care less what people do.

11.03.2020 16:24

Then why even mention they'd use it?

11.03.2020 16:28

lol what ever dude..... get back to work

11.03.2020 16:44

That's how I like it, first contradicting yourself and then quitting. Don't be so eager to discuss next time.

11.03.2020 16:46

dude stfu you do not know what you are talking about..... I am not gonna argue with stupid. lol

11.03.2020 16:53

hahah you always have such fun ideas Eric! This is great.

11.03.2020 15:13

Oh damn, coming from you (who has a ton of amazing ideas) is great Lea! Thanks!

11.03.2020 15:23

A newbies can never take over steem.

Sounds cool. I look forward to read the entries.

11.03.2020 16:16

Always original, Anomadsoul!!!

11.03.2020 18:31

Now that HONEY BADGER has Immobilized Justin's Crew, It's GAME OVER !!!

11.03.2020 20:57

There is an epic hype about challenges.
What’s the most epic challenge?


What's the point of all this hype as long as we lose our freedom and most likely our life?
Reclaiming our freedom might be our epic challenge.
Are you (whoever reads this) tough enough to take our challenge or is our challenge too big for you?

I think Steem still has a future. You can fork a chain but you can't fork a community.

13.03.2020 05:27

Hi Eric

I wasn't sure if you wanted us to drop our posts here but thought I may as well just in case. I've gone all out with a meme and a poem. P.s. fulfilled all the criteria regarding sharing to twitter with tags and tagged Justin Sun in on my tweets in the hopes that he'll watch my performance and realize that we're up for a fight.

Like a honey badger fighting of a lion attacking its young, steemians never give up!

13.03.2020 19:11

"Let's fight decentralization and this hostile takeover together."
Let's fight centralization....right? ;)
