Thank you @steemitblog, for yet another opportunity to be part of the revolution brought by Steem to the world. I am so excited to know you want to accommodate people from all levels in the crypto academy.
I am Asian George from Nigeria and I am here to submit my application for the post of a Crypto Professor.
My Experience in Steem
I joined the Steem platform on July, 2017 and my experience has been amazing. At the time of my journey here, I discovered that the platform is the home for all genuine hardworking people, so do my best to tell friends about it. In fact, I have made more genuine friends here than any other platform.
I have benefitted from this platform, ranging from my involvement with steem promotion campaign, as championed by @stephenkendal back then between 2017 and 2018, the diary game seasons, shopping games and steem crypto academy. Besides the benefits, in terms of financial support, I have learned so much, both from the challenges and other people’s posts.
Steem has shaped my writing ability. I was never a writer until I joined steemit back then. I have made a lot of mistakes, got corrected and still learning till date.
One of my great experience on steem that I need to share with you is that steem paid my rent. It was December 2017, my landlady had concluded plans to throw me out from the one room apartment I was living then. The rent had expired September same year and I was unable to renew it because I was out of job for six months.
Meanwhile, from July 2017 I have been keeping my earnings from steem. Despite the pressure, I had to just gather and keep till December. A week to the set date of eviction, I converted my earnings from steem to Naira fiat and paid her to her surprise.
This is why I can never give up on steem. Fast forward to the diary game seasons and shopping games season, steem helped me to survive the time of pandemic. I was able to take care of my expenses and that of my family through earnings from steem.
I don’t have tangible experience with other platforms, as all my life is centered around steemit.
My Off-chain Experience as Steem Promoter (Promo-steem)
Before the pandemic, I have led a campaign in schools around Port Harcourt in Nigeria to promote steem. Now I have people from University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State Polytechnic, among others who joined steem through my campaign and it has been great to see them doing well.

Why I Can Do Well as Steemit Crypto Professor
I have the capacity to recruit people to steem and help them grow here, especially with the new beginners level students of the academy. Currently, I am the admin of STEEM NIGERIA community and I have been doing a lot to encourage recruitment, activities and growth of members of the group.
We are currently running a weekly contest in the community. What I did was to appoint moderators that takes turn to host the contests weekly. We have a whatsapp group where we teach new recruits how to write on steemit, encourage ourselves and review contest topics before making it live on the steemit platform.
I have been into crypto for five years now, doing investments like spot trading, mining and staking. In addition, the knowledge gained from the crypto academy is enough to impact to others and create a more robust opportunity for a better learning ground for others. I hope to learn more as I lecture others.

I hope to abide by the guidelines by steemit team if chosen as a professor in the steem crypto academy. I don’t know all about cryptocurrency, but I am open to intructions and corrections.
