Using STEEM promo videos to promote our offline events

If you’ve not been around for awhile now, I guess you may have missed a little competition created by surfermarly on creating a 60 second video promoting STEEM.

My personal favourites are these 2 videos which I would be using to promote our offline events.

This was done by @ashtv and I personally think its just brilliantly done simple and straight to the point.

Here is the other 2 videos which I would be using to share onto social media prior to the event.

These amazing videos really showed how amazing the community is in terms of creativity and I’m just blown away with the professionalism in these videos.

I would be incorporating these videos into my presentation as well as it pretty much explains STEEM in 60 seconds.

So do support our offline events we have a number of it coming and our next one would be on the 6th April 2019 in Penang Malaysia.

Steemhunt – The hunts going live on Probit and IDCM

The Initial Exchange Offering is going to happen very very soon on both IDCM and Probit exchange !

Its a very bold move for HUNT token a supposingly SMT ( Smart Media Token ) to debut in a global exchange. Hopefully the other SMT candidates will follow suite quickly.

This would give a huge benefit to the STEEM ecosystem and may increase the volume trade of STEEM as well.

Read more about this in this article from STEEMHUNT https://steemit.com/steemhunt/@steemhunt/hunt-token-ieo-live-on-idcm-and-probit-exchange

I’ve been with the STEEMHUNT team as the moderator for about 1 year now and I’m truly impressed with the team behind STEEMHUNT and hope that you would all support Steemhunt ‘s IEO … btw if you become a early investor you will get extra bonuses.

steemhunt IEO details

A little bit more information about HUNT Tokens, its going to go at 0.02 USD per token. Grab it fast as there are numerous projects by these guys which would be released soon increasing the value of those HUNT tokens.

To find out more about HUNT tokens and its roadmap.

Please check HUNT token website, whitepaper, and pitch deck.

A simple EXPLANATION as to what Non-Fungible Token (NFT) is.

When CryptoKitties last year was launched , it took the world by storm and everyone fell in the craze of buying some unique collectable Kitties to be able to breed and then make tons of new kitties and sell it off for profit.

Some of these Kitties pulled in HUGE value as it gives out very unique stats and it can breed out rares as well.

Now it all sounds nice and cool however at its peak, CryptoKitties ate up just below 35% of the entire transaction of the ETH blockchain making everything else slowwwww and super high fees.

OK … why am I talking about Cryptokitties ? And what’s it got to do with Non Fungible Tokens ?

Image result for most expensive cryptokitty

Non Fungible Tokens or NFT , is a token which is represented as something UNIQUE , IRREPLACEABLE and NON INTERCHANGEABLE.

To explain it in a easier way in the game CryptoKitties. Everyone has a unique Kitty even though it looks the same, and seems to be the same however it could have very different parents or even different time of its birth. This makes every Kitty unique and the value of these Kitties are determined by the characteristics of its parents and so on.

So imagine what else this can be used for, more games … unique art work, school certs which are unique and can’t be changed and many more. However the easiest way to understand NFTs is to relate it to game or arts and crafts.

Because of NFTs getting into the limelight, we now have exchanges which is use to trade collectables. For example

RareBit ( https://rarebits.io/ )

You can buy some of the most unique items here. But in my honest opinion, this is just the start to many new use case for NON Fungible Tokens.

Within the next few months, there would surely be more games or apps coming up and utilizing NFTs , like it or not this is here to stay and who knows we may get some of these mainstream games like World of Warcraft or Pokemon adapting to these changes.

Hope this gives you a brief understanding as to what NFTs are as there would be people asking you about it real soon ! That’s something which is almost guaranteed.

The spell checker which could have hacked Coinomi

I came across this article from Coinomi about a statement responding to a Mr Warith Al Maawali who had made a video on how if you used the Desktop Wallet of Coinomi, your restoration of the Coinomi wallet could be jeopardize because of a SPELL CHECKER function which google had.

If you didn’t understand that video, this is what it was explained in the most simplistic manner.

Since restoring a COINOMI wallet requires you to type in a RECOVERY phrase, Google ‘s Spell Checker kicks in and records down all the words you use which is shown in the right hand side of the screen.

This is a large vulnerability which could be exploited by hackers even though Coinomi claims that all information received thru the spell checker does not go anywhere. However its still a vulnerability which is acknowledge by Coinomi.

Here is the full responds from Coinomi in regards to this Spell Checker vulnerability.

https://medium.com/coinomi/official-statement-on-spell-check-findings-547ca348676b

Because of this COINOMI started getting a whole series of allegations about lost money in wallets and etc. etc. and the drama of COINOMI and their reputation is on the line.

Here is a reddit article about someone loosing their entire life savings just after using COINOMI wallets

So be careful as to what you use to keep your precious crypto, as people will always find a way to try to get your $$$ and these vulnerability in softwares & systems are consistently put to the test.

Do take necessary precaution in safe guarding your data and for cryptos, do not place it all in 1 wallet, I do suggest to have a bit of diversity in the method of storing your cryptos. And use only companies which emphasize on security.

Cheers and have a good weekend.

DAYBIT Exchange Made my day ! AI Trading

Ok … so here is the thing, a few days ago i posted about getting onto DAYBIT and start playing around with the “Intelligent Trade”. Why not right ? After all soon DAYBIT will also be trading the SMT tokens from STEEM communities so better start understanding its features.

Here was the post https://steemitup.club/steems-smt-trading-exchange/

In that post I was trying out buying USDT just as it dips. I was trading a little bit of EOS to USDT. It managed to find the top and bought just as it started to drop

It was a success ! It managed to buy USDT at about $4.0076 for me it was sweet as I got those EOS at about $2.5 per token. Clean profit of $1.5 per token sitting in USDT

Then I wanted to try the “intelligent trade” to find the bottom and buy a little bit up.

Another SUCCESSFUL trade ! However it was flawed slightly as the real bottom was actually $3.3 however it didn’t really matter as I knew it was going to go up “fingers crossed” . I accepted that it works and i had to make sure profits were obtained from buying this round of EOS.

Then I wanted to try another option which was in DAYBIT which was this. GREATER THEN xxx AND SELL at maximum of xxx .

I must say it was a slightly longer wait this time as price didn’t hit its target for 4 days … it almost hit then it pulled back .. and almost again then pulled back. Unfortunately there wasn’t a lot of trade volume on DAYBIT so even if coingecko showed other exchanges hitting the price , on DAYBIT it was still relatively not there yet.

But it happened while i was sleeping ! The trade sold all the EOS back to USDT !

So my here is my trade history. From my tests over the past 2 weeks on DAYBIT Exchange. Taken into fact that the EOS transferred here was bought at $2.5 .. DAYBIT helped me increase the volume of EOS tokens which I had without much effort except login in and waiting to see if the price had sold.

Oh by the way I also earned some DAY tokens from every single trade that happened.

My opinions about DAYBIT, its pretty cool however the trade volumes per day is not on the high side. Do try out DAYBIT exchange if you have the time as once they get more active you will surely see its volume go up. You can use this link to try it out.

http://bit.ly/2ScUlWx

I will still continue to to use the other exchanges, however DAYBIT is starting to grow on me. And hopefully they will list STEEM / SBD soon. Thanks to @project7 from @steemhunt to introduce DAYBIT exchange to us.

Let’s get STEEM in another exchange – bitmama.io

You guys know the drill ! Lets get STEEM into as many exchanges as possible. This is https://bitmama.io Bitmama is a crypto-fiat exchange which enables traders to trade Bitcoin, Ethereum and other digital assets in Africa.

Do support and comment STEEM at its twitter post.

With STEEM getting onto more exchanges, it increases the chance of people trading STEEM and strengthening the community. It gives really good branding and also get more people curious into joining our community.

So make sure you tweet and support this effort in getting more people onto the STEEM blockchain and also more people buying and selling steem.

Remember just a few months ago we did the same voting for NETCOINS ?

gonetcoins.com

It was a successful campaign and its now listed on NETCOINs site

So lets do the same for this and it only takes a tweet. Cheers and have a great day.

All new Drugwars on Steem

Brand new screens , brand new units and BATTLES action is up and running again !

After a few weeks of total peace among everyone, DRUGWARs enabled the battles option once more. And there was a massacre among everyone for drugs, weapons and alcohol !

Those accounts which did not stockpile on defence units were of course one of the first to get hit and resources stolen.

My own account was hit with an army which took out a lot of my bouncers….. oh my bouncers … at least they managed to fend of the attacks

Then again with the new price increase of all units, its going to be expensive to replenish all those units lost. All units are now so much more expensive about 40% more compared to previous. It does come with an increase of stats as well.

Apart from only Bouncers , Knifers and Gunman new units has been introduced.

I got intrigued with NINJAs so I bought a few to test it out. Hey why not ….. i wonder what would happen in real life if you had a ninja vs a hitman.

I’ve not tried it all yet however great options to have to spend those precious resources after a successful battle.

You are now able to select WHO you want to attack in the new battle system. Previously you were only able to select from the leaderboard. So if you have a beef with someone, you can then attack them.

After getting attacked, you are then being provided with a shield which last for about 12 hours. So you are literally safe from all attacks until the shields run out.

There are a couple of interesting changes in the game and also the storage mechanics seems different now, however I’m still trying and testing out these stuff.

If you are interested in playing drugwars if you have not already done so… click on this link !

Have a great weekend guys !

What’s up with the weather in Malaysia

Its been ridiculously hot in Malaysia. With the height of 35% celsius and humidity up to 89% you literally can fry an egg on the hood of your car

According to the Malaysian Meteorological Department this extreme weather is going to last till July 2019 and its really going to be a hot hot hot few months.

Looks like the better place to be is in Sarawak seems cooler then the rest of the country.

However straight after the heat wave, we are also expected to see heavy downpours which would lead of a whole lot of different problems.

https://www.worldofbuzz.com/warning-extreme-weathers-expected-to-hit-malaysia-in-2019/

So after having a cold cold time in Krakow, Poland enjoying the 2 degrees celsius just a few months ago. I would not mind just having a few days of nice cool weather.

So if you ask me, would I rather have cold or hot ? I guess I’m used to hot weather and if required head over to somewhere with AC ( aircon ) if I needed to cool down.

The only great thing about this hot weather is that it gives me more reason to goto the swimming pool just to cool off.

So How’s the weather on your end ?
