Still a dedicated HIVER, but here's what I did...

in menofcrypto •  5 months ago 


I did my first real P/D and sent hive and hive-denominated investments off platform, converted to BTC and bought the above!
I had sunk a lot of money into Steem(it) in 2017-2020 and it basically kept dropping. BUT, thanks to the wizardry of @spinvest I was able to get back to nearly an even level (in fact the SPI portion was in profit) and with a few other Hive-Engine proceeds, I scored these babies. (pic for illustration purposes only, mine arrive Monday or Tuesday) $5 US Commemorative Gold Coins. Nearly 1/4 ozT Pure Gold contained in each coin, the balance is 5.33% copper and 3% Silver. BU coins in capsules, and the BTC price is only 1% above the cash price. PayPal (😝) and credit cards pay a lot more. My first real cash-out and I made it COUNT.

I remember when STEEM was a Top 30 coin, (#28 iirc?) and now it's about #130, hive is close to that. Bad trend, and in fact, Hive has lost around 40% since I cashed, but SPI keeps right on chugging along! People really need to look at spreading their wings, SPI, Brovest, LEO, and the new EDS tokens all are doing pretty well despite the Hive collapse. I'm just glad that after 3 years of beating my brains out, that I have something to show for it. This is a YUGE SOMETHING!

If you are not into SPI, EDS, LEO or the like, I would urge you to get into something that has a wider exposure than just "HIVE" or "STEEM". Hive is a good starter for a dedicated blogger, but an investment oriented "occasional writer" like myself, well, it just does not do. ALL my first year Steem buys were WAY OVER current prices. Like an average of over $1 🤦‍♂️ I bought enough steem to make Dolphin in 235 days and the majority of my purchases were around 90 cents. SPI SAVED MY ARSE!! But I did average down a LOT when I was buying SPI tokens.

SPI is over HALF "off platform" investments, all of which hold their value relative to Hive and Fiat Very WELL. LEO is also going the ERC20 "WRAP" tokens avenue, the gains are not mooning YET, but there have been immediate gains and the LEO price is way above Hive price now. Just a few months ago it was like 3 CENTS! Now it was 26 Cents TODAY. People in HIVE (non-WITNESSES, non-WHALES) are making awesome moves, and they need your Hive to make it happen. Or H-E tokens! I know there are some other good projects, I am just speaking of the ones I know.

Congrats this is really worth it to buy. Update me with a picture please, once your babies arrived home.

Yes Indeed!
The file photo from SDB is the right number
of coins, but there is no way I will get that
variety. Likely all 12 will be the same. 🤷‍♂️

I really don't care, I'm a BULLION STACKER,
and I'd really love to sell all my "junk silver"
especially if I could make a clear profit! 🥳



Now I feel totally ... uhm, ya, can't even find the words. Lol ... Something like, OHHH YESS I'm actually thinking about silver, and you give me a 'slam' in my face telling that you want to sell your "JUNK silver".

Lol ... I guess there must be a difference, and I guess I have to start somewhere. Can't buy gold for the next 10 years if it goes like this.

But again CONGRATS TO YOU. It IS a real nice buy you did.


Spinvest is AWESOME! And, with this leo boost, the weekly earnings are even better.

W/O SPINVEST I'd have just a $2000 "HIVE" account that was spinning it's wheels...
I've invested waaaayyy more than that in Steem/Hive. Over the years. 🤦‍♂️
@silverstackerUK and the Gang (you, Shani, JK, Task, etc) are making it Great Again!

Hastala Vista Baby! 💋
