Drugwars and everything else about Steem

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.

source : https://www.stateofthedapps.com/rankings

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 STEEMĀ  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.

Here is my referral code if you are planning to try out this game. https://staging.drugwars.io/#!/ref/@bitrocker2020

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.

Web Hosting

From $3.95 a month its a really good deal.

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.

Its all red in Malaysia – Happy Chinese New Year

Going around the shopping malls in Malaysia past few weeks , you’ll see a very common sight. Almost everywhere is splashed with RED ! If that is your favourite color then your eyes will be feasting in all the variants of RED.

Gong Xi Fa Chai

Why its splashed with RED is purely because Chinese New Year is just a few days away and RED symbols prosperity.

Even all the hampers are all RED. A lot of merchants take this time to take advantage of the festivities and packing up goodies bundling it in very nice hampers

cny hampers

Well , with all the distractions and shopping going on, we must always remember that celebrating CNY is mostly about being with the family and welcome the new year with prosperity and luck for everyone.

Gong Xi Fa Cai in advance to all !

Tips of ordering food at the mamak

The Mamak is a typical Malaysian restaurant where you can get extremely yummy food for the cheapest price. But there are a few tips which I learned over the years to get real value for money.

Ordering drinks

Unlike Starbucks, where you get 3 different types of sizes and have to pay a lot more, the Mamak offers either standard cup size or the super jumbo size. I found out that there is another size if you really want to get a good deal. You call it the take away but have it in a bowl. Example… Teh O Ais. Or ice tea…just order Teh Ais Bungkus Mangkuk Ikat Tepi.

And you’ll end up like the picture above. Total price is about rm1.70 or rm2. Compared to the standard cup… You only get half the size and a difference of 40 cents at max.

Roti telur

Ordering Food

When ordering roti ! Ask for Roti Telur or whatever roti.. But to get it fresh and crispy… Ask them for “garing” . You will then get a nice crispy roti telur.

I normally like freshly made and freshly cook so I always ask them to make it with onions as by asking that, they have to make a new one because its not the standard onces they make in bulk.

So year just my lil tips of going to the Mamak… What about you ? Any interesting value for Money food tips to share.?

Steem Presentation Slides

Finally got the time to clean up my slides a little bit and share my presentation slides with everyone. Hope it gives an idea on how I normally share about STEEM to the general public.

slideshare by @bitrocker2020

In my typical presentation I try not to be too technical about Witnesses or even where the money comes from. However the focus on what STEEM blockchain is all about and the various projects and communities which are already using some of these amazing apps like PARTIKO, STEEMPRESS and also FUNDITION.

If anyone ask How Can I Cash Out ?

I always tell them to earn some STEEM first thru their posting and when they want to $$$ then send me a message or they can just google it.

If they ask Where the money comes from ?

I normally tell them … the blockchain handles the amount of STEEM everyone gets and this is fueled by posts which they do and upvotes they receive. However earn some STEEM from they posts first to understand better

The objectives of doing a basic introduction is mainly to get new users to start posting and we want to show them that there are so many ways to post and so many apps out there that serves different purposes. eg. STEEMHUNT or even DTaste or Tasteem which is used for recepies or restaurants review.

Penang Steem Sharing Bootcamp

A little reminder that we are running our Penang Steem Sharing Bootcamp once more on the 24th Feb 2019 and it will be held at The Settlements Penang. Time 2:30pm – 5:30pm

If you are around Penang, do hop on over and lets catch up. Thanks to FUNDITION and everyone else who helped to promote this drive to get more users on STEEM.

The Settlements Co-Working Space in Penang

It was only just last month where we held our first Penang event in 2019 and I would like to give a shoutout to the venue that provided the venue which was a really nice co-working space called The Settlements.

The Settlements Penang is located in a MSC status building. If you do not know what MSC is , in a nutshell it stands for ( Multimedia Super Corridor a Malaysian Govt initiative to provide special perks to tech companies ) However as part of the guidelines, having a company which is MSC Status, you would require to reside your office in a MSC zone / building.

The office environment setup by The Settlements Penang is suitable for young entrepreneurs who just started their spanking new company however does not have the necessary funds to rent an entire office space yet but would like to have the perks of an office.

The Settlements Penang

You have the option in taking a room or if you are always out and about, you can just take the hot desking where you are free to come in and out as you like and if you require to have meetings, there are full facilities meeting rooms at your disposal as well.

The location of The Settlements is within driving distance to almost everywhere within the Penang area so its convenient and is satisfactory for most aspiring tech companies.

We had our first Steem Sharing Session here and I do love the colors in the presentation room that was provided. Thanks to The Settlements in allowing us to use this place and we would be having our next session here as well … unless something else comes up.

Malaysia national productivity blueprints

Was invited to a talk organized by Productivity Nexus giving insights about our Malaysia National Productivity Blueprints and also about the current economic situations in China.

Prof Wang Yijiang ( Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business ( CKGSB )

Up on stage was Professor Yijang from Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business – China who came and spoke about the economic situations in China and the challenges that’s currently being faced.

A bit about Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business ( CKGSB ) , its one of the prestige universities in China where its Alluminis suchs as Jack Ma and about 3000 CEOs from various Chinese companies collectively holds revenues of about 13.7% of China’s GDP.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheung_Kong_Graduate_School_of_Business

One of the highlights was also our Malaysia National Productivity Blueprint which was the focus of MPC ( Malaysia Productivity Council ) to introduce new methods in increasing the productivity in mostly the F&B and Retail sectors.

oznor_soft

It was really an interesting talk and was surprise that there were Govt initiatives to improve overall productivity levels in retail and f&b sectors.

oznor_soft

There are 4 sets of KPIs in these areas which NPC are trying to achieve by engaging with local businesses and encourage growth in these areas.

Overall it was a interesting talk and met a lot of new faces as this was my 1st event this year which is NON tech / crypto related. LoLz.
