Hitting 20,000 Steem Power and 100,000 Jahm staked | 100% JAHM vote = 10 Steem

지난달

The other day I sat down to write my autumn buying plan. I thought it would take about three months to reach. But today, I did a big buy with help from @slobberchops and I reached two of my targets:

No 1 | 20,000 Steem Power - Dolphin II apparently :)

Source Dolphins I and II. Welcome to the family.

When Steem-Engine started, I thought I was going to focus on @steemleo and @creativecoin but life decided otherwise and two other projects came my way. One was @reggaesteem and the other was @spinvest. Both these projects had a lot in common:

FactorReggae SteemSP Investments
Business ideaBring Jamaican musicians and tourism businesses to Steem by providing them with promotional and other services through bloggers and social media.Lease Steem Power for 20% interest and use earned income to buy safe off-platform investments eg precious metals, bitcoin.
BenefitsBrings new people to Steem. Steem-backed token accepted by businesses in exchange for goods and services.Ties up at least 1.0 million Steem.
ResourcesTeam with coding, marketing, music and tourism experience. Community ambassadors. Legal entity. Developing front-end. Business and social media networks.Experienced founder with two years reputation in steemsilvergold community. Investment club with formal Partnership Agreement and growing membership. Long term, expansive vision.
ActivityConstant development and improvement of front-end (you can see they're testing). Frequent posts about developments and contacts outside Steem. "How to" videos. Contests.Daily posts with weekly updates about earnings, holdings, investors and members. Monthly fiat to Steem buying plan, @spinvest-leo account, investment and other votes for members. Timely communication about changes to the plan.
RisksEarly days for a start-up business. Token may struggle against other tokens. Tricky times for Steem and crypto.Early centralisation to get started. Earnings opportunities may fluctuate. Future of Steem-Engine and S-E tokens.
ProgressMarket becoming more competitive, token price has increased dramatically in three weeks.Approximately 38,500 SPI sold. Weekly earnings now 185 Steem.

No 2 | 100,000 JAHM staked - No 6 in the richlist

This is a comparatively small tribe with 732 staked accounts, but it's growing steadily. I have the honour of being the first investor to reach the magical 100,000 staked JAHM, although @crypticat is coming up fast behind me and someone is buying a lot of JAHM. Three weeks ago, the 90,000 JAHM I needed would have cost in the region of £60; today, it would cost anything up £430.

But also this:

I'm interested in @reggaesteem because it has a sound business idea behind it based on bringing new people and their fiat to Steem. It supports Jamaican tourism businesses which are often at a disadvantage from global businesses but which, pound for pound, contribute more to the local economy. Jamaica has a progressive approach to crypto and a high-performing stock exchange.

Reggae, of course, has a global reputation with keen fans everywhere. My vintage is somewhere around 1968 to 1972, and I'm moving more towards jazz these days, where I'm in good company:

Blogging about the music, musicians, clubs and all things reggae offers huge potential for writers on ReggaeSteem, which brings me to voting:

shanibeer's 100% vote = 415 JAHM equiv. 8-12 Steem

From the beginning, I was keen to get a clean feed for @reggaesteem - full of engaging, relevant posts that illustrated what @reggaesteem is all about. This is where I honed my downvotes, before any HF21 turned up with freebies. I was investing and I wanted my investment to have and grow value. Out went @actifit, @sportstalk and @dlike posts with no relevant content.

I growled at generic posts from @steembasicincome, @beerlover and others but let them pass, occasionally they even got a small vote. They're all great initiatives and I would really love to see them produce posts customised to specific tribes. That way everyone would benefit - the initiative and the tribe.

I give small votes to posts which bring something to the @reggaesteem feed. It may only be a link to a song and a few words, but it's early days and these low value posts are contributing to a dynamic feed. That's important, but what I really want to see are posts that I can give a 100% vote. These are well-written with some images or a video or sound recording and about 300 of the author's own words.

I also love posts about the creative process, here's the video from one of my favourites:

It's intriguing watching artistes at work, or listening to people talking about what they're doing or telling stories about their lives. Short videos or recordings work best for me - three to five minutes is ideal - with a little bit of text to set the scene.

No 3 | SP Invest - No 3 in the richlist

I haven't quite finished here - my big buy ran out before I completed my buying target. SP Invest is a different kettle of fish. This is a savings and investment club, SP Invest doesn't vote and my shares in SP Invest don't have any voting value. This is a nest egg. As well as getting rich slowly, it's a lot of fun and I'm learning new stuff everyday.

My buying plan is about getting into position in the #newsteem; I've a little more to go to be where I want to be. I've built my Steem and my stake in these two projects as a foundation for the future. It's been a pretty nice day.

My thoughts exactly. Have something good to say and a blog strongly related to Jamaican culture and Reggae, you CNA be very well rewarded.

Congrats on reaching stake! #jahm

Thank you, feels good :)
Really looking forward to some great posts coming up. Feel this is going to be such an exciting tribe, it's so well put together.
Hope we coincide at some stage ... Toronto is another place I want to visit, my stepson will be in Canada for two years soon.

Edit: Also, I can't believe how much money people could make with good posts - the equivalent of ten steem here and only one steem on steemit. Crazy!

It's definetely a great tribe. If you're ever in the 6!x let me know. Or if your Stepson has any questions I'll pass you my email in discord. One you have your politics sorted out I'm gonna visit England, two of my close friends live there.

Fab, thanks :)

One you have your politics sorted out I'm gonna visit England, two of my close friends live there.

You might be waiting a long time. I might be looking for Canadian citizenship.

Very well written post, congratulations on your milestones. You have everything planned out and are ahead of the plan, brilliant. I like how you broke down your reasons for investing your time and assets into ReggaeSteem and Sp Invest. ( I have heard about them but haven't looked into it deeply).

LOl I am surprised to see that video here, I thought no one watched it LOL.
We are grateful to have a true believer like you here supporting us. Thank you Shani. Blessings:)

PS: Checking out that Sly and Robby meets Nelis Petter Molvaer on my journey.

Good to be here, I wish you and the team every success :)
Hehe - yeah, I love videos and sound recordings like that, add so much. I think that's one of the reasons I'm getting more into jazz - there's more room for riffing and playing in the moment, more spontaneous. My favourite track on the album is White Scarf in the Mist.

OMG after reading this post (about 3x), I had a loss of words.... @shanibeer you are the BEST! lol Thanks for being such a great member of our tribe, I had no idea you were taking SCOT tokens so seriously. The project breakdown is perfect!

I'm also a stickler for high JAHM upvotes, one of the few things I think we did wrong at the very start but everything is progressing nicely. Good to see you take deep consideration when voting as well.

@reggaesteem is still in infancy but this post is a good sign, our baby is about to take it's first steps :)

Glad to have you on this journey, see you soon...

#WeJAHMin !

@donald.porter, glad it was an accurate representation of what you're doing :) I like the depth - the posts about the stock exchange etc - as well as the music and the fun, it makes reggaesteem very well-rounded.
Managing content and feed is always a challenge at the beginning, but it's building nicely, you're all doing a great job, I hope you're enjoying it.
Yeah, we're on the journey ... so exciting!


Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

Grats on your achievement bro! I also do try to promote this wonderful tribe and I'm loving it.

Good to hear :)

Ha ha, double dolphin status! Nice moves @shanibeer.

I'm a fan of reggae steem (and powered up all mine) but haven't written a post on that platform in a while. I hadn't heard of the other project you mentioned. I'll have to take a look.

Congrats on doubling down on the dolphin pod 🙂

Hehe, thank you - two seemed more friendly :)
It would be great if you wrote some posts, it's a good time to get involved, things are moving fast, the team is putting together lots of good stuff.


Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

Hey, way to go! You are definitely moving up in the ecosystem and your presence is well known between the two tribes you are an influential member of. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to interacting and investing with you into the future 😎

Thanks, @conradsuperb :)
This is really exciting time for Steem and both these tokens - jahm and spi - are great propositions. We don't know how things are going to turn out, but these have good foundations and are set to do well.

Looking forward to interacting and investing with you into the future 😎

Likewise :) It's fantastic to be in at the beginning :)


Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

It's about time I did a Reggae post, it's a niche of music I do like but have never volunteered any opinion about.

Alternative weekend is really out of steam these days. Food for thought, and good to see you believing.. though the token went down AGAIN after we did the purchase.

·

Hehe, Steem always goes down after I buy. I just accept it now :)
Yeah, please do a post, look forward to it.

Thanks for your help :)

·
·

Anytime, though you should just create your own Wirex account. You don't need to physical card to buy.

·
·
·

Yes, that would be sensible :) I'll have a look when I do my steem housekeeping. Mind you, more fun doing it in tandem, especially for a big amount!

Just seen @penguinpablo's post: I was seventh largest power-up yesterday; @goblinknackers is in there, too, at tenth.

Someone I need to follow, I will have a look.

Big up yourself for reaching your staked Jahm. Looking forward to seeing you in Jamaica...


Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded
·

Hehe - really pleased with myself :) I'm really looking forward to coming, I love your posts, especially the pictures. Like postcards from Jamaica :)


Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

Hello my dear @shanibeer, congratulations. It is very good to see when someone is reaching goals and achieving goals, this is very inspiring and makes you believe that it is possible to develop on this platform and grow, I think that with discipline and perseverance everything is possible.

Go ahead friend, let your success follow.
@fucho80

Thank you, these are good projects, I'm looking forward to seeing how things develop.
I wish you well in reaching your goals as well :)

I think an interesting initiative quality content nourishes the mind and spirit and reggae has a lot of material greetings from Venezuela .@chanibeer


Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

Greetings from England @mariluna :)
You're right - our minds and spirits are nourished :)


Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

right on!

·

Congrts on the milestones @shanibeer not sure if this as changed but back in the day dolphin 2 was 10k which still makes sense to me 5k is dolphin add another 5k makes 10k which is 2 dolphin's power regardless well done with all your goals.

·

I'm not sure about any of these things @simonjay, I think it has more to do with the number of vests you hold, rather than the amount of Steem, it was just a hook for the post really :) How are you?


Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

Respect, but watch out with your #actifit ,
that is one step closer to the microchip...

·

Thank you :)
Yeah, I'm in two minds about @actifit, even though I'm already a cyborg.
How's Berlin? We are having beautiful late summer weather here.

Then follow that conscious part of your mind ;)
Berlin is nice, too... if the Chemtrails aint spraying it up :(
Greetings ;)
You're in England/London, right?

Yes, England. I work in London and live in Leicester, about 100 miles north of London.

Dang 20k someone’s really flexing in the blockchain! Lol! At 15 cents it might be a bargain but who knows the way stems been lately it could keep going down and we’ll just keep earning it!

With all the liquid steem on the market right now we’ve got a few minnows waiting to happen at least!

·

Heh heh :) It's all about the long haul, though, isn't it? Really good to see sound propositions like @reggaesteem building on the blockchain, especially as it's based on the idea of bringing more people in. I agree, it would be fabulous to see some more minnows happening :)


Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

I've not been following the reggae stuff, but there should be something for everyone in Steem. I'm also about to hit 20k sp. I've not been buying up the other tokens, but have earned a bit so far. I've set up an account to give votes with those. Lots of potential there. Keep up the good work

·

Yes, it's great to have niche tribes where people can find and contribute to what interests them, there is a good team behind @reggaesteem. Good to hear you are nearly at 20k SP, too, these middle size accounts will make a lot of difference, help to stabilise Steem. I haven't got time to keep up with all the tribes, I'm just staking most tokens hehe :) I'm pleased to have made some decisions, though, it frees up time and energy for other things.

I hope the tribes can build. They will have to do until we get proper communities.

Have a !BEER

Thank you, no time like 9 o' clock in the morning for a beer :)

To view or trade BEER go to steem-engine.



Hey @shanibeer, here is your BEER token. Enjoy it!

Awesome. Thanks for that.
