Introduction - New to Hive My first first

in #introduceyourself2 years ago

My name is Jerome.. Born and raised in Central South Africa... attended university in Bloemfontein, Free state where i studied Micro Biology and environmental management... i am doing Archaeology now . i love history and the stories that come with them. especially stories about ancient cultures..

i love soccer [playing and watching] (i think i am the biggest Chelsea Fan in the world). training in the gym is essential... when i was young i wanted to play professionally but now i just keep fit to play (not the other way around)

i love science and technology, hopefully i can live and work on Mars one day (soon) [as per Stephen Hawking's advice]... reading is one of my favorite hobbies... non-fiction only...


and don't forget about music. i love music (who doesn't?). a lot. i also host a show on a local internet radio station about once or twice a month... This is a photo of my mixer where the magic happens


love connecting with old friends and meeting new people...

I believe this crypto financial system could potentially change the world... it is a Type I (one) civilization (technology?) financial system... a decentralized system based on abundance rather than lack...

if anyone doubts this...

"Regardless of what has been said taking something off the internet is the same as burning a book..."


Welcome @poomps, I look forward to you sharing with the hive community.

hi hi... thank you.. i am also looking forward to being involved...

Hey Jerome, welcome to HIVE always great to see more South Africans finding out about this place! The more locals the better, can’t keep letting the rest of the world enjoy blockchain without us, since we like to be late to the party, but NOT this time

If you like to talk crypto you should check out the @hodlcommunity and it’s a site that is built on HIVE but only crypto content is cuRated on it

Plenty to see and learn so I won’t overload you, how deep you want to go down the rabbit hole is up to you

All the best, hope to see you around

Hi thank you... for sure we have to enjoy this... lets see how far the rabbit hole really goes...

Welcome to the Hive community @poomps!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Seven suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, keychain and Peaklock,
  3. The owner password is only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and
    be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once , and
  7. Do Not open any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @brittandjosie and @jamerussell from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Hivians available who can help you; you can click to go to The Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Hiving!

safety first;-) ... thank you to @brittandjosie and @jamerussell from @heyhaveyamet for promoting my post... feels like i will have fun here... thank you again...
