Congratulations to all the first generation international ONO Super Partners!

Come October, there will be Super Partner elections, and anyone can be either voted in or out. So, even these first generation Super Partners are not immune from election results in October. Super Partner selection is still ongoing as there are not yet 51 Super Partners. If you’re interested in submitting your candidacy to become a Super Partner, read here.

I have had a complicated journey so far, but all what matters is that an opportunity has come where I’m able to make a living off of dtube where I’m able to provide my value to the world. I’m very grateful for that. I know that this is just the beginning of something new. Within the steemit world I have co founded the group dtubedaily and I’m very proud of that. I’m willing to give my best to the Ono community which I have on dtubedaily and I know I can do it because I am a very persistent guy. Talking about dtubedaily, recently I have been coming up with ideas, including others theirs, and editing them together that shows the collaborative value of the whole community that was put forth on the steem blockchain. On top of that, we have virtual meetups every week (which I have missed maybe 3–4 times) where we catch up and discuss the growth of dtubedaily. My second family was formed there :) I would love to bring my value (entertainment and being a super partner) to the Ono community as well.
