Had the pleasure of attending Blocklime’s Blockchain Bootcamp today and its always great to attend anything organized by Blocklime Technologies as I always get to learn new things.
Harpreet the CEO of Blocklime Technologies is very well known in the blockchain scene in South East Asia and has been a speaker for many events globally.
I was given the opportunity to share about the STEEM blockchain to several people as they were really interested in STEEM. So I gave them the 20 mins talk and showcase of all the projects where are currently available.
Also had to chance to briefly chat with both Matthew ( left ) from Etherscan and also TM ( mid ) from Coingecko which were next on stage with other panelist.
Its events like these which helps educate the general public about blockchain. I’m glad to be able to meet like minded individuals where we consistently support each other when one of us organize these events.
I do hope that more initiatives like these happens everywhere to educate the general public with the right information and not some ponzi / scam which unfortunately has tarnished the views of “Blockchain” generally.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve heard of initiatives like @steemengine which enables anyone on STEEM to create their own tokens. I think its a great idea and I knew that there were some discussion on using side-chains to create SMT Simple tokens for projects on STEEM.
People like @actifit , @steemhunt and even @magic-dice and who knows perhaps @drugwars will and some already have benefit from having their own token within the STEEM ecosystem.
Recently @steemhunt had signed a MOU ( memorandum of understanding ) stating a collaborative effort to get SMT tokens tradable on DAYBIT exchange
In all honesty, I only used a number of exchanges and this was the first time hearing about DAYBIT so I decided to dig in more. Even though there is no STEEM / SBD wallet yet , I did try depositing a lil bit of crypto’s in and start to explore this exchange.
At a glance, it looks just like ANY other exchange. And this is the top 5 exchange in Korea ? I did the norm signup and mobile registration. You had to do it to enable the deposits and 2FA.
The uniqueness about this exchange is that this exchange is just uniquely fast ! After reading more about it, its actually developed using a programming language called “Erlang” which is used for high-capacity data … example WhatsApp, LINE and even games like League of Legends.
What really caught my attention was its built in “trade intelligence”. So If you wanted to catch a trade at the top ( almost top ) and then sell .. you can actually set it to do so.
In the screen above I have set my trade to SELL my EOS to USDT after figuring out the TOP and it drops 5%. Now upon writing this , I just placed my order and waiting for it to execute. Hopefully I can report good news in my next article.
So literally you can also set the BUY signal at the bottom. I’ve not tried it out yet, however excited to see how it goes.
So before DAYBIT enables SMT tokens on the exchange, why not you give it a try so that onces SMT is on board you know how to auto trade. To signup, click the link below
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.
So its that time of year once more where florists all around the world charges up to ten folds on flowers and sales of chocolates soars and restaurants just cash in promising the most romantic dinner with your loved one.
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
and for all you steemians out there … may you be able to share it with your loved one. Happy Valentine’s day to you !

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 !
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.?
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.
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.
