Follow Friday: Steemfest fever?

4개월 전

I am sure most people have seen the latest from @roelandp to say that Steemfest 4 will be in Bangkok. This has been sort of expected as a lot of people have flown over to Europe from Asia for previous events and Steem is fairly big in Korea, Malaysia and Japan. Thailand may be a relatively cheap place to have it.

I have yet to decide if I will go. I have been to the last two that I paid for with my Steem, but I would rather not power down at the moment. I also need to do less flying this year after I did a lot in the last six months or so around Europe. If Steem should go to $5 in the next couple of months then I could change my mind and even fly first class!

A high Steem price does not seem too imminent as everything went down last night as Bitcoin took a big hit. Despite this it is still up for the week. Chart from @coingecko.


I have not been doing too much with my @TenKMinnows project lately apart from supporting a few people. The latest chart from @arcange shows increasing numbers of minnows and dolphins. I would like to find more people who are on the verge on minnowhood to help them get over the line. Suggestions are welcome. I did look at the Redfish League from @paulag that highlights those who are getting close, but of those I looked at recently some had no recent posts and others just seemed to enter some meme contest that I did not consider of great value.


Here are some accounts I consider worthy of checking out:

  • @xorb, and @marenontherun are the redfish I have been giving extra support to this month. They are all runners, but some do not post that often. The quickest way to get to minnow is to buy some Steem and the low price may be tempting.
  • An alternative to Steemfest is, which is in Germany in August. I did consider going last year before we knew what was happening with Steemfest. I have use of a camper van and could probably find some people who would share the cost of driving there, so it should be a bit cheaper. Tickets are only 200 Steem.
  • @revisesociology has already booked his flights to Bangkok, but says he may be interested in Steem Camp too. I have already seen him a couple of times this year, but he always something interesting to say.
  • Steem machine @pennsif is doing some posts about things he is doing to save the planet. This is something I am really interested in and I may post on the same theme.
  • @nathanmars is running the Steem campaign on Twitter that involves people posting videos of them doing push-ups. I have done 61 of 77 days of that so far and I try to post a Steem link each time to add some value. Nathan and his partner had a baby son last month. @jamesmars already has a Steem account.

I am pretty sure we will not be attending. It is just going to be too costly to fly from the States to there. I'd love to go. Even if Steem hit $5 I probably still wouldn't be able to swing it :)


I have not made a final decision yet, but I may pass this time. I may not make it to the German event either as we have something else on then.

Thanks for the mention Steve.

The SteemCamp in Germany could be interesting. Do you speak any German?


I do speak German having lived there for a bit, but it looks like I may not make it there this time as something else came up.

I just might attend Steemfest 4. Haven't been to Thailand yet, and part of the reason for spending time living in Mongolia was the opportunity to travel throughout Asia. If the bull market in crypto continues, my mining income would more than pay for it. So fingers crossed... 🤞😁


I'm sure you will enjoy it and maybe there will be some other comic artists there
