Blockchain is moving and Nigerians are sleeping. Are you going to be left behind too?

in HODLlast year (edited)


I feel like a king when I'm talking about crypto with my friends, its really interesting, after committing 3years of my life to one thing, I feel really glad to actually become part of that thing and even more as time goes on.

So yeah when my friends or anyone tries to talk about crypto around me, my ears go double sharp and my instincts supernaturally just leads me to conversations with the person, as much as my friends make me feel I know, deep down I know I know just a bit of the entire Block-tech ecosystem especially as it evolves everyday, even though I try to to keep up as much as possible.

So the first thing I try to know is what the person wants to focus on, the tech or the finance, because I'm at least 1% abreast of the two so I can quickly synch information from my brain and light the conversation up, this is like the routine, so if the person is interested in the tech, I want to know how much, so I ask about other cryptocurrency's besides the worlds famous bitcoin, their answers usually determine the flow of the conversation, if they know about only bitcoin, then I takeover the convo and begin to talk about alt coins.

People seem to be more familiar with Ethereum so I start from there, then end in Hive. If the person is interested in the financial aspects, I ask what the person does to make money, the answers I get are mostly from trading, hardly have I heard up to 10 people around me talk about staking or any De-Fi products, or even the term itself, its laudable really, then others just buy and hodl. Then I dive into what makes sense than just holding, staking and I end the discussion about Hive.

It sort of hurts that most of my audience come from abroad while most Nigerians are still catching up to believing in the existence of blockchain, and there's one major reason to that, Nigerians simply don't like to read, or better said, most Nigerians simply don't like to read, once its long and probably filled with words they're supposed to do research on, its trash bye bye, I heard a saying while growing up, "put a blank cheque in a book and give it to a Nigerian, he will never open it."

I find it funny because Nigerians will rather follow the band wagon than do their own research, I'm not trying to boast but I spend countless hours reading several articles everyday, some on Hive, some outside Hive, all I know today is accumulation of what I've spent my time studying for close to 3years now, and I still think I know just 1% of crypto or blockchain, don't blame me I'm not a brainy, and its not like one master taught me anything, its all research, trial and error and grace. I'm excited and enthusiastic about the next 3 years of my life as I continue to delve in this paradigm.

It's interesting to note that if anyone at all has been following in my journey, they must have taken some actions I did and must have made something for themselves by now as I have for myself, thanks to the community and my friends. At least I can boast of Steemleo(LeoFinance), Splinterlands, Hive itself......😎

This is not to say that anyone should take my investment advice, sometimes I'm just Hive(pun intended) and I say things, but I like to do a lot of research and share my honest opinions so....while I keep breathing, developers keep existing and this community keeps on thriving, I will continue to feel like a king among people around me when they talk about crypto where ever I am.

Oh I heard there will be a Hive Naija meet up thingy sometime later in the year, should be fun, hopefully we can garner as much attention and attendance for the meet up.
The onus is on us to spread the word and pay it forward, and that's what we'd do with every part each stake holder plays, yup that's yall, including you reading about Hive for the first time or are about to dive in.

Thank you for reading.

Want to join Hive through my Ref Link and let me walk you through starting up? Click the image below.



Hey there man,I feel there should be a rating botton apart from the normal upvote button and I bet to give you a 100%rating,in the navy,we say that it is rewarding to master the sea ways,but for the purpose of this post,I say it has been a reward for you to have tried mastering the hive platform and the cryptosystem.

I must also point out that am a Nigerian and I agree intoto with @mistakilli that a whole lot of Nigerians are now solely aware of this platform and am one of them, though I still agree with you on some Nigerian's attitude toward reading but which ever way,it is imperative on us here to publicize the @hive community to them.
I, for one also look forward to that naija submit and I will love to get posted on the latest development.
You av done nice there,thanks

I appreciate the complement bro, I'm really just catching my own cruise, not only me, few other Nigerians have also been doing extremely impressive in their business here,

I hope more Nigerians get to read stuff more

I see many Nigerian in this community. This reveals that crypto is getting popular in Nigeria. Gitplait is an amazing community which encourages technology, programming and coding posts.
Your post has been submitted to be curated with @gitplait community account because this is the kind of publications we like to see in our community.

Join our Community on Hive

Getting popular and getting adopted are different things, also, is your "many" up to 1000 active members? What stops us from having that?

@tipu curate

Upvoted 👌 (Mana: 6/12)

Thanks my G

That's what it is, you deserve it big time, you're welcome

Great piece her man, truth is, your technical knowledge about crypto and blockchain is a banger, I hardly know half of what you do, but I'm passionate about belonging to the elites of the future and that's why my almost three years here has been about investing and earning for my investments. I hodl too but mostly I don't I prefer staking

You my man are a future leader! Your vision, hardwork and dedication paid off quite well. I use you as example a lot, lol, thanks to your consistency, creativity and hive power :).

Ahhh that's absolute awesome coming from you. I'm guessing with time too our people won't be so behind anymore you know but then, we need to step up to the reality of the future.

Yup and spread the word.

Hey, sorry for hijacking your thread but I see you use the leofinance related tags :)

Did you know here are certains benefits and reasons to publish your crypto/finance related posts through the native leointerface;

First, there is now a 10 % tax for posts not through leofinace

Also, it helps a lot with the seo of leofinance. Which means more traffic, which means more ad revenue for leo burns, which means a higher token price, which means more money for you, lel. Please see the following for more info:

Also, me and to my knowledge the other leo whales show a preference when voting for posts through the leo interface. Personally, it's the only ones I check when curating.

So, tldr. You get more leo. Leo gets more expensive and more leo are burned. We all get a lambo.

Okay so I've always used Leofinance for everything finance as I understand these points you've actually high lighted, I only stopped when a community began a project to help curate writers with a focus on technology, finance and the likes, please read about it here
That's why I've been using Hodl community, hoping to build something that will benefit a lot of other people like myself while still using the leofinance tag because the topics relate.

I would have loved to be able to post to hodl community through SteemLeo. Maybe there's a upgrade needed there.

I just want you to know that Steemleo is one of my best projects here and I am in full support of being a part of its growth.

What I'd rather do in the case of SeO is share my posts related to Leo Finance to my external social media, I mean my twitter, rather than share the usual or another.

Also when I was posting through SteemLeo, I had the feeling of being sidelined by curators a lot, so at some point it wasn't anymore about the rewards for me, I just loved the project, I have investment in it and hope the investment will do well. I curate with @enison1 on Leofinance, I've been powering up and only sold once. Now I'm piling up again, hopefully to power up.

First, there is now a 10 % tax for posts not through leofinance,

Well, with the situation I've found myself, I guess I'd gladly pay the tax. It will also help the economy anyway. I'm up for that.

Thanks Trumpman, I'm glad I came across your radar. I hope you understand me, I hope other leo curators who also sees this understands me.

Personally, it's the only ones I check when curating.

If you allow, I could always send you my posts :)

Thanks anyhow man.
