It's been 3 years since I first joined Steem, and it has been a life-changing experience. In early 2017, I bought 30k Steem at around $0.15. I have held on to my investment and have had between 30k-40k for the majority of my time since I first powered up.
I never imagined that I would have more than 100k SP, but the low Steem prices, I took the opportunity to power up beyond 100k Steem. With the changes in HF21 increasing curation rewards to 50%, I'm looking forward to doing a lot more curating, and also looking forward to Communities on Steem and putting my stake to building some communities here.
Along with SMTs, NFTs on Steem-engine, the growing success of Splinterlands and Steem Hunt, growing number of dapps and communities on Steem, there's a lot to look forward to. There are many people talking down Steem and complaining about the Steem price, but personally I'm more excited about the development here than I've ever been, and I know when the price of Steem turns, it often turns fast and can often be explosive. Not sure about you, but I'm ready for the ride!
