INTRODUCTION

line2.png

I woke up today morning and visited Steemit and Hive as I do pretty much every single morning and couldn’t help but to be curious – what another day will bring on those 2 platforms. Will we encounter another little drama or perhaps there are some good news awaiting me. Being a PH community leader has its ups and downs and you never really know what day is awaiting ahead of you.

Imagine my own surprise when I discovered that yesterday @project.hope had celebrated exactly 365 days since it’s official creation. I wasn’t even aware that it has been ONE YEAR since we launched this project and decided to go public.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US :))

RECENT 1 YEAR WASN’T EASY ….

line2.png

For many of us, it has been a rough and difficult year. We’ve witnesses a so called “STEEM takeover” by Justin Sun, causing our favourite blockchain to split in two. We’ve witnessed the creation of HIVE, which divided the steem community even further. That in itself brought many new challenges and we went through some difficult times – especially since we’ve been trying to stay neutral during the unfolding conflict between these two chains.

Initially, this attempt to stay neutral has been obviously seen by some hostile users as a reason to be targeted and attacked. Many of us experienced personal attacks. I was even personally warned, that if we will continue our work on steem, then we will be considered to be traitors and our entire community will be “destroyed”. We’ve also witnessed some attacks towards @fucho80, @juanmolina, @gbenga and recently @adityajainxds – the level of aggression towards some of us has been insane.

Luckily, those events only made us stronger and united. It also allowed our project to get extra exposure and attract attention of a few large users. Fortunately, some of them decided to support our efforts – either by delegating their stake to PH or by following our curation trail.

Also, I’ve learned, who I can count on in case of trouble and which users simply … suddenly “disappeared” - valuable lessons for many of us. It has surely been a bumpy ride so far.

PERSONAL CHALLENGE

line2.png

Some of you may remember my trip to Switzerland, which took place at the end of 2019. I managed to secure a contract with an existing business planning to launch their own STO (security token offering). As a future project manager, my goal was to build a network of bloggers and influencers which would help promote this STO.

I’ve focused my efforts on building a community around project.hope – assuming that it will help me reach that goal. Right at that time I’ve seen PH as a “recruiting ground”. Place where I could get to know valuable authors and learn to work with some of them. Initially I had a vision, in which I would bring this particular existing business (with yearly revenue counted in millions usd) to STEEM and secure a number of part-time jobs for many of our community members.

Unfortunately, it’s all a thing of the past. The spread of Covid-19 had a very negative impact on that particular company and my entire STO project was cancelled. My contract was also terminated – promoting me to wonder about my own personal future as well as the future of our project.hope.

Those questions are still hanging in the air and future (especially since Covid-19 became a real thing) is quite unknown. However, it’s hard not to have the impression that our project is moving in the right direction and I’m excited to see what another year will bring.

LOOKING AHEAD INTO THE FUTURE

line2.png

Despite all those challenges, we’ve already managed to grow bigger than I expected that we ever would. I personally consider our community to be one of the most engaging out there. Supporting many active and valuable members on both blockchains.

Bringing extra value into both blockchains

My goal for the second half of 2020 is to establish few partnerships with teams developing their own tools/software build on top of STEEM / HIVE blockchain. And to “use” our strong network to help promote some of their products. To help them reach a wider audience, get more users or simply spread the word about tools which they deliver.

I strongly believe, that there are some solid programmers and developers – often creating promising tools. However, they tend to give up because of lack of exposure to their work. We want to change that and we already gain some experience, recently promoting holybread.io and steemscan.com.

Supporting some of those developers is our attempt to bring more value into both blockchains.

Great to have you on-board @uyobong

Let the haters hate. I just joined Steem coming from Hive and I see nothing wrong with it. I've got no problem with Justin Sun personally and as opinions are both pro and counter Steem, I feel like the truth about the whole situation lies somewhere in the middle.

I wish a lot of success to Project Hope and I'm happy to be here helping anyway I can, devoting time, on both chains. Happy Birthday!

Dear @crypto.piotr

It is a shame that because of COVID-19 your super project was canceled, but I want you to know that I am a deeply spiritual person and that all the good that you do in life will reward you, you are an angel in the lives of many of We, you fell from the sky and help us in these difficult times, I am sure that God will reward you with a much better project in the future when this pandemic ends.

I take the opportunity to thank you for your excellent work and leadership, if there were more people like you the success of steem and hive as a platform were unstoppable, you are a person who changed my life for the better and I want you to know that you count on me for what you need Happy birthday @project.hope I hope you will be many more years old.

Hope I will be rewarded in this life (not in next one :P)

Yours, Piotr

Wooo friend, a real madness! It's been over a year now?

This whole year has been incredible, for me, walking this path with you fills me with much joy, considering where we were when all this started and analyzing how far we have come.

It has been an exciting journey, perhaps for that reason we could not realize how fast this year was, to igul that you think that there are many good things I have interesting for happening with us in this "boat" called Project HOPE.

I want to especially congratulate @crypto.piotr for the effort, you are doing excellent. Don't give up! ... I also congratulate each one of the members of the project, those who have been here from the beginning and all those who joined the journey.

Success for all, a lot of commitment and perseverance!

Success for all, a lot of commitment and perseverance!

Exactly! :)

Wow! Congratulations! It seems impossible that 1 year has passed since the creation of such a nice project @crypto.piotr I'm very happy for you and the community, this shows that we are part of a solid project with a great future. Not everyone is standing as this one has done, as you say there have been inconveniences and they have wanted to attack the members of the community but in spite of all this we have stood firm.

I have a lot of confidence in this community and in you as a leader, you have shown that you are a committed person with excellent qualities to lead. Right now the future is uncertain, but the truth is that in life everything is uncertain, the best thing we can do is go forward with the best will and the best attitude.

Once again congratulations and thanks for giving me the opportunity to be part of @project.hope

Happy Birthday Project Hope may you achieve success soon.

Everything good, thanks, I just need to end my thesis, now I´m analysing the data collected and putting together some conclusions...

Hi @diogosantos

What thesis?

For my master degree in management...

This is amazing and worth celebrating, I am really excited at this great achievement even if we did not start together I am glad to be a part of this team and I am glad to have joined early enough to have noticed and witnessed some drama's on our dear community but through it all we have gained strength and the zeal to keep trying hard.

Thank you for your encouraging comment @oluwatobiloba :)

First of all, I want more people to know about this one-year completion for the PH project on the platform so I have done resteem to bring more attention on this post.

Congrats PH team for making it a fantastic one year on the Blockchain and I know this has not been easy but certainly we have done wonderful work on the platform. This is just the beginning and we are going to witness many more years together over here with the fastest-growing opportunity and I am sure with the passage of time we will turn out to be even bigger and stronger. Glad to be part of the PH family and I wish you the best.
Thank @crypto.piotr and team for the great work in this 1 year.

I hope to see you posting and engaging with PH members more often :)

Surely. I will do. Thank you.

A year of progress, literally. Of growth.
And it is true, the attacks that the community has suffered by a few has allowed PH to be much better known, and by verifying that the work and the work of the community goes much further, many have been supporting, in general the attacks have strengthened us as a community, because by withdrawing some users when there was a problem they do a great favor, because if there is no commitment, and at the least problem they move away, the best thing is that they are not... good way to help, the crises in these aspects help.

Happy first anniversary Project Hope.

Thanks @crypto.piotr for being the leader you are and thanks to all the PH team.
I feel really good about being active here.
