We have finalized the dates and new venue to our event this coming April for another exciting round of sharing STEEM to the folks in Penang.
The event will happen on April 6th at The Blocksignal’s spanking new office at 138-03-03A Jalan Anson, Penang. From 2:30pm till 6:00pm !
If you have friends / family or even if you are in Penang during this time, do come and join us. The event is free and it would be the best time to get your friends and family onboard creating great content.
This is just an introduction talk and not a technical one. We would be introducing apps people commonly use on the STEEM blockchain and we will also get people to signup during the event itself .
Cheers to @djlethalskillz and we normally try to catch up with always loads to talk about. This time its really heavy about the latest crazy on the STEEM blockchain called DRUGWARS !
Having multiple people who have started playing this game and have already gained some sweet “drug money” its not a wonder why this game has grown so fast in a short period of time.
Even on State of the Dapps its now ranked no. 2 which it clocked in about 3,300 people playing this game and transaction of over 100k of STEEM.
A short trailer was also released just today and the team at Drugwars seems to have hit all the right notes at making this game go viral in the STEEM community
Having said that, its not all smooth in the DRUGWARs game as there are a few glitches here and there which I do applaud the devs to look into those matters pretty quick and try their best to resolve it.
I personally am looking forward at what else the devs have on the table to make the game even more attractive and if there are ways to gain mass adoption which seems to be a critical challenge for all games which currently sits on the STEEM blockchain.
So what are my earnings like to date ?
I’m not really pumping a lot however here are my earnings from when I started which is about 8 days ago. Total spend on buying stuff and all on Drugwars is a total of 123.52 STEEM and total which I have earned so far from this game is about 71.751 STEEM which brings it to minus 51 STEEM which I do hope to get back over the next few days then I will be positive once more.
Should you play this game ?
Of COURSE ! I don’t see why not ? You could play the really conservative way and not buy anything with steem however I do recommend at least put in a few steem to invest in your production. You really don’t have much to loose.

For me …. its just a simple date with my ex-girlfriend/partner for life/wife . Treasuring every moment with this amazing woman is truly something which I value.
Happy Valentine’s Day @ireenchew .. xoxo

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we have to move our schedule of our Penang Bootcamp Sharing to either 1st week or 2nd week of March. This is due to space availability and also to coincide with TheBlockSignal ‘s event plans who is our partners and organizers there
Even though the dates has moved, we are still very positive about the event there and are excited about trying to get a larger crowd.
Other updates in Malaysia
We are now finalizing more workshops and planning in Kota Kinabalu to grow more content creators in the community in Borneo. We are moving our plans forward in Borneo to start running workshops to drive the growth of STEEM adoption here and also to work out a sustainability model for new users.
When will this happen ?
Our workshops will begin by May 2019 and we are now currently planning for space and also facilities. It surely is going to be a really exciting year for Steem in Malaysia !
Won’t be able to reveal much as a lot of planning is still in the works however rest assure that it will happen.
It was a very last minute decision to hop on a flight and head back to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah as there was something which I had to do
And as always I took the opportunity to meetup with all steemians who was around town and had the time. Being all part of STEEMXP community and also TEAMMALAYSIA , we had a breif discussion as to the current markets and also direction of growing STEEM adoption in Malaysia.
Looking at 2019, it is going to be a lot of speculations and fud in the crypto space. I do have confidence in the blockchain technology and its surely going to strive into something greater then what it is known for today.
We will however always push for growth in this region with a few more events being line up throughout the year, we have already begun planning workshops and more talks around the STEEM ecosystem. With more and more amazing DAPPS being developed by independent developers, STEEM will surely be one of the strongest blockchain & community around.
Don’t forget our next event is just 2 weeks away in Penang and once everyone is back to work after the Chinese New Year holidays we can push and plan for more confirmed events.
Would love for you to support our campaign on fundition for running all these offline events and promoting adoption of STEEM
Are you already using wordpress and find that sometimes your hosting is just slow or ever got hacked before ?
For the longest time I can remember I’ve been using SITEGROUND and it seems to be the best option for wordpress hosting especially in South East Asia.
Its cheap and really really good. The signup is really simple and its plans are very affordable.
For me since I have about 20 over different domains for me and a few of my clients, I use the GoGeek plans and its more then sufficient to host all your sites.
The value added is that all sites comes with free SSL therefore you are able to just turn on SSL ( https:// ) for free.
You are able to literally subscribe, then get wordpress hosting up and running within minutes. If you do need help, do give me a ping. Start using STEEMPRESS plugins in your wordpress site straight away and keep your blogs personal !
