This video was done in May 2017. I did my first Bitconnect loan to try it out. A LOT has changed since then. For one thing the price of the bitconnect currency (BCC) has gone from $16 to $127. There is also a huge divide on BCC with some calling it a scam and others making money on bitconnect for the last year. I will give an update on my current status on this soon.
In June 2017, I tried to get the sia coin wallet to work. The concept has potential.
Sia splits apart, encrypts, and distributes your files across a decentralized network. Since you hold the keys, you own your data. No outside company can access or control your files, unlike traditional cloud storage providers.
Back in May (2017) I bought about 200 dollars worth of an altcoin called #digibyte. This was after they announced they had a project that would allow gamers to mine real cryptocurrency within a Minecraft server. I was excited. The currency actually did get up to a few thousand dollars but then it dropped down shortly after the announcement and after they lost a contest for a separate blockchain technology they had.
I have just started using crypto currency and getting into steem has been a great way to really dig into it. I am blown away by this new technology. This is going to change everything. The more I know about it the more I realize that I have a LOT to learn. If you are a content creator, a writer, a vlogger, a blogger, a musician, a film maker then you should check out Steemit.
