Today, I became a Dolphin! 10M VESTS

image.png

Wow, Five Years in the Making

I've been posting consistantly since May of 2017. There may have been a few times where I took a break, but after 1832 posts, I have finally become a dolphin!

What does it mean to be a dolphin?

Dophin status means the user has 10,000,000 VESTS which used to equate to 5000 HP, but today is more like 5500 HP.

Dolphin?

The ocean terminology began back in the steem days, when there were certain bloggers who aquired very high stake. When steem became a few dollars, these "whales" would go around granting $50 - $100 upvotes making them mega-celebreties. So the term "whale" stuck.

After that steemitboard (which has now become hivebuzz.me) came up with ocean creatures to denote the number of "VESTS" a person has achieved. They based their creatures on growing up to become a "whale".

LESS THAN 1 MILLION VESTS = Red Fish
OVER 1 MILLION VESTS (550 HP) = Minnow
OVER 10 MILLION VESTS (5500 HP) = Dolphin
OVER 100 MILLION VESTS (55,000 HP) = Orca
OVER 1 TRILLION VESTS (550,000 HP) = Whale

image.png

10 Million VESTS at last! It's about to go up further in a few days after HPUD tomorrow.

What are your HP goals?

You are well on your way! I bet you could make that goal by December, or at least before next year.

Congratulations, welcome to the dolphin pool.
My really long story made very short is I exchanged a tranche of Dogecoin for Hive last summer and became a dolphin faster than you can say "wow, much power up"!

I wish that I would not have sold around 10 000 Dogecoin for a few dollars a few years ago, when the value of the Dogecoin was around $0.003 USD. I could have sold it for around $3000 USD, or even around $4000 USD. But I thought in that time that Dogecoin will not go up. This is why I sold it at such a low price.

Thanks for sharing. Most have regret stories like that, some have success stories.

$0.003 would have been a 'High' based on it's history up to that point.
At the beginning of 2021 I owned 85,000 Dogecoin, and sold off 70,000 in tranches on the way up and down. Asides of a Hive power boost, boosted my HE Account, bought a gold Coin with some rare silver coins, a marvelous portfolio of BTC, ETH, LTC etc and now I am diversified.

Welcome to the pod.

HIVE needs more dolphins. The @arcange daily stats show 1,628 dolphins. Dolphins control 13% of the pool. Unfortunately, the 37 whales control over 50% of the pool.

Thank you! Yes we need more dolphins. A lot of old-timers powered down while the whales do their thing. There are lots of minnows on their way to being dolphins!

Goal setting does help set the sites and go for it. Orca is 100 Million Vests or about 55000 HP. Not impossible, but it will take a while. !ALIVE

Congratulations on becoming a dolphin, Benjamin.

Don't sweat the ListNerds reputation. It has been reset a few times in the past month or so. @blainjones is working on fine-tuning the algorithm.

This is good to know. Going from a perfect 100 is a little disheartening... but i'm sure it'll work itself out. !LOLZ !ALIVE !PIZZA

I will use this as my reference.

. . . these "whales" would go around granting $50 - $100 upvotes making them mega-celebrities

Wow! What an airdrop! !LOLZ

What are your HP goals?

Mine is just 1,000 by the end of this month. I wonder how long will it take for me to reach that 5,500 HP.

I saw your post on ListNerds.

Thanks for your thoughtful comment. My advice for reaching HP goals? Don't sell. !lolz !alive !pizza

A qualification perhaps: "Don't sell . . . until you reach Orca Status." 😄

Congratulations. It's a good feeling. I cheated on an alt account by buying HIVE. I just didn't have the patience to do it from my activity. The good thing is that you have the discipline and the community. It gets easier and easier to earn as your account grows. You're on a good trajectory.

Thank you for the congrats! Alt accounts are not cheating, in my opinion. I have multiple accounts, but it became cumbersome to maintain them.

It does become a little easier once the account gets bigger. And daily posting and curating takes some discipline.

Congratulations ... and yes, because of algorithmic tinkering on Listnerds, the reputations are going up and down ... posting often and reading and verifying often helps ... but, I don't know if the changes are settled in yet... I wouldn't be too worried about it... you have a good reputation, in the end, based on people clicking through and respecting what they read.
