2 years on Steem going on 20


I got this message today on my last post and I kinda new it was around this time but it slipped my mind. So thanks @arcange and @steemitboard for the reminder.


Its hard to believe that it has already been 2 years spent here on the Steem blockchain blogging, communicating, learning and being part of the community.

365 days x2 is 730.
And even though I am not the most prolific blogger I would say that an average of 0.6 posts per day or roughly 18 posts per month is not a bad average. I am not active blogging daily like @exyle or @tarazkp but my 3500 comments do point to about 5 comments per day.


Now with curation and posting rewards (its hard to be exact due to the @ocdb support) I managed to earn a nice amount of SP which I estimate to be around 5k
And then I have another 15k in this account and a few others. This also puts me solidly in the top 1000 SP holders here on Steem.

I started out just blogging about random stuff and move mostly to crypto or investment related topics now. But I sense that times are changing. Steem might become more of a back end coin and tribes or communities or games will take over.
For myself I like the blogging and will probably keep it up but I have also diverged a bit into other tokens like palnet or steemleo.
Steem is diversifying and I like the way things are moving along and am trying to keep up with the developments. There are golden opportunities here and even if there were not.

I would just like to mention a few people that I follow but also interact with (and I hope maybe to see at the next Steemfest)

You guys have made this experience worth while and I feel grateful to have gotten to know you all one way or another.

@revisesociology @galenkp @abh12345 @datadash aka @nicholasmerten @starkerz @cryptoandcoffee @papa-pepper @lukestokes @karinxxl @hilarski @therealwolf and his lovely GF @rosatravels @reggaemuffin and his new fiancee @suesa @derangedvisions @connecteconomy @liznomadsoul @soyrosa @meno @indigoocean and all the rest that I have missed

There is so much to read and to learn that I am looking forward to the next 20 years.

A couple of years consistent blogging here is a great effort @felander, even more so considering the quality of your posts. I don't recall getting one of those badge things when I clicked over two years last month...Must be for the special people only. 😊

Congratulations on the milestone and good consistent engagement.

maybe @arcange put them in recently?? but yea I am really pleased at still being here and participating

But I will gladly share my token with yours, just copy it :-)

26.07.2019 11:18

Haha, sharing is caring. πŸ™‚

Congratulation 😊it's time to open a champagne πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

26.07.2019 09:39

thanks, champagne will have to wait, need the cash for more crypto :-)
but a bottle of wine will work

26.07.2019 11:19

Congratulations! πŸΎπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ I think 2 years is quite an achievement because in crypto that means your time here included one bear market :) Not many people manage to stick through those periods. πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻

Yea, my portfolio is actually worth the same amount throughout the bear market since I kept adding in.

If it would go to the previous heights then my whole portfolio is starting to be life changing money (not in Switzerland but in most of the world)

26.07.2019 11:21

Congrats on the steemversary dude!! You have got a nice game going on then in just two years, I presume it is not all blogging but also buying in right?

Otherwise I need to know your recipe on this one heheh

Are we gonna celebrate tonight with a beer somewhere? Summer evenings ya know!

26.07.2019 10:19

yea, i bought in but used the ocdb service to grow the posts instead of straight away powering up.
And I am starting to get good returns slowly. If the value goes up it will start being a nice passive income stream

I have said before you should come by Einsiedeln for a drink, or have a swim in the lake, meet the dog, etc

26.07.2019 11:23

im game today dude...! Off all day..ive sent you a whatsapp so we can make it happen?

26.07.2019 10:30

This also puts me solidly in the top 1000 SP holders here on Steem.

Do you ever think what this could mean one day? I have been meaning to write a post about it a bit, perhaps I should :)

26.07.2019 10:38

how about comparing it with people that bought google or amazon in the beginning of the 2000s
(crossing my fingers that that would be the case)

26.07.2019 11:24

I am hoping for similar. I just tagged you in a post, I hope you don't mind.

26.07.2019 12:20

wow, I just got quoted by someone that is almost recognised on the street :-)

and nr 377 on steem to boot.

27.07.2019 20:53

You are so lucky!!! Did you throw your panties?

28.07.2019 18:33

I really wanted to and when I started fumbling with my pant buttons and he ran away... I guess he had some bad experiences.
Guess someone threw him some panties with leftover resource credits in them

Covered in old RCs is no ones happy ending

28.07.2019 20:09

Definetly you should @terazkp

Im not sure what being the top1000 SP holders on STEEM can really mean. Perhaps being top50 would be a big deal ....


28.07.2019 18:31

Depends what the price gets to and what one is able to do with the stake. I would say that if the price was 20 dollars at some point and my vote was somewhere around 56 dollars at that point and I used it to invest 500+ dollars a day into people's business hopes and dreams, it would probably be a big deal for them.

At that price, my account now would be worth 1 million dollars and I could invest in them without diminishing what I hold. Having 350+ in front with more and 1000 behind and not too far away doing similar - it would be a monumentally big deal.

28.07.2019 18:37

Dear @tarazkp

Thank you for your kind and prompt reply. Appreciate it.

I would say that if the price was 20 dollars at some point and my vote was somewhere around 56 dollars

True. However I would rather expect price of STEEM to be constantly going down. I wish I would be wrong, however I don't have any reason to believe that price movement would ever change direction.

Since you're so responsive, I thought that perhaps I could share with you my latest publication and ask about your own opinion on discussed subject:

I would appreciate it greately.

Price is currently not tied to anything other than speculation. At some point, that will stop and products and services will be needed as investment vehicles. Most other projects don't have anything near what Steem has now.

Hi @tarazkp

Thank you for being so responsive and always replying to my comments. I really appreciate your time and effort.

Most other projects don't have anything near what Steem has now.

Indeed. STEEM has huge advantage (lack of real competition so far).

Respect to you,

Oh many congratulations!

We're really on a parellel journey - my 2 year anniversary is next month sometime.

You cld more or less repeat this post and make an SF4 post you know! Deadline today for the latest.

I love it here, but I've come to realize it's just too hot in the Summers for me to be here year round. I think I'll live here Fall and Spring and find other places for Summer and Winter. But life is very relaxed and pleasant here, and being near my family is what I needed at this juncture, for them and for me.

27.07.2019 14:46

Good stuff, here's to 200 more? :D

26.07.2019 16:00

at least, I plan on getting nanobots that keep me alive and upvoting them with my steem to pay for the service
