I am excited to announce the Beta Launch of Excel For All. An Excel community based on the hive blockchain where you can ask questions, share knowledge and network with other Excel and Spreadsheet users.
Do we really need another Excel community? After all, there are already plenty of Excel communities on Facebook, Linkedin & Reddit. So why launch another one?
Well, there are never too many places to talk about Excel, and I have become the Hive community Excel go-to person and often help other Hive users over discord and email. So it would be nice to bring that onto the block. But besides that……
The hive blockchain offers many benefits that can not be found on Facebook, Linkedin, Reddit, or other Web2 centralized options. The Hive blockchain is a decentralized platform, with the unique ability to store content and reward users with tokens. Many people spend hours helping in Excel communities and they do it for the love of Excel. The only reward is to become an influencer, while the platform, Reddit, Facebook, Linkedin are making money from your time and your effort. Maybe even tracking your habits and selling your data.
We seen it with Facebook in the past. Do you remember as a community owner you could actually contact your community members? Rules then changes and community owners lost a lot of power, including any ownerships of contact lists made via the platform. At least Google+ allowed community owners to download a contacts list before pulling the plug on communities many had spent years building.
The Hive blockchain offers an alternative to this. Content is not driven by ML and AI. Instead, users decided what is important to them. Ownership and control will remain in the hands of the community owners.
And so I chose the hive blockchain to offer an alternative to the existing community model and today I am delighted to announce the beta launch of Excel for All. The first Excel community on web3.
As it is beta, to fully partake in the community you will need to have a hive account. However, there will also be opportunities to engage with certain community posts that will be published directly on theexcelclub.com via the guest accounts.
So if you have an Excel question, burning problems with your spreadsheet, do visit https://peakd.com/c/hive-102332/created and get some help.
This community will be sponsored by way of curation from @theexcelclub
