2019 Steem Silver Round

As I am sitting here tonight, waiting patiently for the new season of Gold Rush to start. I figured it would be a good time killer to knock out a post about the 2019 Steem Silver Round. Its a stacker thing

If you have never seen Gold Rush, you should check it out. New season starts today at 8pm CST on The Discovery channel.

What went worng?

When it comes to the Steem silver Round I am at a lost for words. I can only speculate on why this year there seemed to be little intrest in it. Maybe its the decline in steem value, maybe it's the decline in steemit activity, maybe it's the fact that the Majority of steemit is still unaware of the Project and Maybe we should have seeked out some support form the elite. Speculation is all you will get out of me, cause I am lost.

What I do know is that we have passed the minimum mintage that is required from the mint. So the Round will be produced and honestly I know there are a lot of people eager to get their hands on the 2019 Steem round. We're about 6 weeks away from ship date.

Will I get my Requested Number?

This question has been asked by several buyers. I Knew that Specific number where important but I also new that it was quickly looking like we would not reach the 1500 mintage. I quickly went to work with the mint, after several phone calls, I think the Mint and Myself have come up with the best solution. Now before I get into the solution, I want to stress the fact that North American Mint has gone above and beyond to help us out.

Solution!

The Mint has agreed to provide any number that we request between 1 and 1500.( even if we only sale 700) Now when it comes to numbering Mint companies will not budge or do anything that will question their integrity. So there was no way the Mint was going to produce specific numbers while skipping other numbers. So how will you get your number? Well here is the amazing part, the Mint is going to Mint all 1500 rounds. They will allow us to pick out the number that have been requested and then they will Melt the rest of them. Now this is costly to the Mint, you see every time you melt silver you loose a little of its weight. So for the mint to be able to do this for us they will charge an extra $1.00 for every out of sequence round. Which is a very good deal. Think about this for a second. The rarity of a 3 coin set just doubled, cause every round that gets melted down by the Mint will never be produced again. This in itself is worth the extra $1.00

⤴️⤴️ Gotts go GOLD RUSH starts in 37 minutes 😉🍻

Sort:  

@raybrockman you have done one hell of a job keeping this together this year. It seems to me many people are just not interested in holding silver. In past years I've tried giving rounds away, and this year buying rounds for people and holding until they are able to pay. Zero interested persons.

Thanks My Friend for all the support, I cant even imagine why no one took you up on your offer. Different times.....thanks again!

So many people have left Ray, they are sick of the hardforks that take more away from the grinders and feed the whales more. This new payout and the downvote trail of the "Douchebag Clan" has totally pissed very good people on this platform off.
If they dont do something to right the ship its gonna sink.
It really sucks because I really enjoy the people of steemsilvergold and thealliance.

I am afraid you are right d510, its a sad day when a group of 10 to 15 control the platform. Not much decentralized there.

So true! Ugh, its so disheartening.

Exactly right. Unfortunately

The obverse side should have been struck as a toilet...

Jist remember steem is so much bigger than steemit.

Is it? Doesn’t feel like either are bigger then anything anymore

I dont understand why this coin never made it as a pinned message on steemit?? They are pinning so much crap but they wont pin this awesome steemit commemorative.. Its reasons like this steemit is falling, the elite only care about themselves on this platform and if ur not in the Gold Ol Boys club then you get shunned..

You got me Hippie, it should have been featured longer than 24 hours. Unfortunately they are not accepting new members to the good ol boys club.

Man, I'm surprised that only less than half of the coins are sold, I'm going to grab some more for sure. (resteemed) I will try to throw something together postwise, you have so much time and effort put in this for us!

Thanks for the support @tbnfl4sun.

I think it's because STEEM is tanking (now down to #86 on CMC) and the active user base on the platform is a fraction of what it was.

It is going to be hard to keep this series alive if we don't get a revival in the platform and that's something I am becoming increasingly pessimistic about.

I think your right sir. I cant even imagine what the 2020 round will do, if we're even around to see it. It has been very hard for me not to start powering down.

Instead of Melting the Rounds, they should just hold onto them, or sell them at Melt Value Prices, plus Postage and Handling...

October 11, 2019... 20.3 Hollywood Time...

Either way they have to recoup some of their expense.

I still figure it would be a waste of Money, to Melt them down, at this point in time...
October 12, 2019... 15.5 Hollywood Time...

At this point in time, Silver is much better than Fiat...
15.6 Hollywood Time...

They wouldn't really mint these and melt them down. They're just saying that to preserve their integrity, because simply printing whatever mint numbers they want on things would destroy their reputation (since that is fraud). So they're pretending they're going to mint and destroy about half the series. In reality they'll just print the requested numbers. There's no way for the customer or public to know the difference.

That’s pretty interesting... I wonder why they’re not selling like Hot-Cakes...???
October 12, 2019... 14.8 Hollywood Time...

You have to see the good in people untill they show you the bad. It would be a lot easier on the mint to produce them all. When you think about the engraving that each round gets. It would be a lot of extra work to manually engrave each one.

Don't get Discovery, but the show sounds good! I know I'm eager for mine to arrive!

rubs hands together menacingly

@tipu curate 2

Thanks buddy, youtube Gold rush you'll like it.

I was planning on buying more, but life happened. Also, the price of STEEM definitely doesn't help. But it's such a great project! Thank you for keeping this going and working with the mint to find a solution. I'd like to see a few whales pick this up and support it!

Whales? What is that. 😉😂😥

I really want to see this succeed but I'm not sure what I can do to help. If I get time this weekend I can make a post about it...as long as I don't use any bots to promote it. Guess other people know how I should spend the steem I bought better than I do.

Thanks VG Crazy times around here right now.

I just found out that the deadline is four days from now!😳
@raybrockman thank you for this beautiful Silver round, count me in ... ordered!🤗

Hey thanks for the order @silvertop!

Scared me @raybrockman....😳
A Silver addict missing out on a new shiny!😬
It will reside with last years Steem round!😊

Shit. I just downloaded the episode but it is too late to start the hour and half watch. Tomorrow.

What are the sales number so far? Are we even half way?

We have sold right at 620 rounds. So not even half way yet. 😥😥

I wonder if maybe the mint might just hold onto the balance??
Christmas is just around the corner and people procrastinate.
You probably will have people that will be looking for these rounds then @raybrockman ....
Not that I’m holding my breath.... but we might have a Christmas rally!🤔👍🤗

I think I saw that like there are only 2000 active users left on Steemit. Korea and Germany are two of the largest populations after Americans and this coin Has neither German or Korean on it. But, I will still get one! 😎

Sorry buddy, not the designer, just the seller 😉. Wow 2,000 active users, thats bad!

I know it’s way down, but just look at @actifit users their are over 3,000.
Unless they are scamming the system we are only allowed to post once a day.
I’m here....I’m staying!👍🤗

Regretfully, there are very few of us left from the original Metals Mafia crowd that came over from YouTube.

The group is diffently smaller ( much smaller) then it used to be.

Have you and this community considered purchasing some ad space on Steemit and within the tribes? Do you know the costs?

Hey @nonameslefttouse we managed to get a feature post on steemit. It was only for 24hrs,but unfortunately it didn't maje any difference to sales.

We've never looked in to advertising on other platforms and don't know costs. I'm sure @raybrockman, as the #steemsilverround organiser, would have thought of this, but if you have any tips, please feel free to share.

It would be a shame to see such a great steem project fall to the wayside after just 3yrs.

This is what I see in the comment section even here, as I write this:
Screenshot (683).png

@aggroed are you around or have you muted me? LOL!

@aggroed would have all the details and know the necessary steps required in order to be able to advertise within the tribe frontends, since it's basically his baby.

That's probably the best way to purchase visibility now on the chain and trumps paid votes since the ads would last a lot longer and be seen in far more places all at the same time. The tribes also have designated ad slots one can purchase and stay on the trending pages within those tribes for a long time without fear of ever getting downvoted.

The cheapest advertising is right at $250.00 and can go all the way up to $2,500. For this to be a nonprofit project it would have to come out of someones pocket. Honestly $250.00 is another 10 steem silver rounds. We managed to get a post featured but it was only left in the featured section for 24 hours. ( wasn't long enough) I feel like we have exhausted all resources except to pay.

Have you looked into promoting posts within the tribes? Top slot on all the trending pages is there to be purchased. Added visibility, probably cheaper. Plenty of options and this community is clearly earning something posting these daily promotions. Wouldn't be hard to get on Palnet, Neoxian, SteemLeo and many others by converting some of that STEEM. This comment section looks like many are feeling negative and defeated rather than using what exists to help the cause. There must be something you guys can do that's different than what you've been doing. I guess these are my suggestions.

Wasn't aware you had a choice on tribe promotions, when you go to the advertising link, it is very vague. If this was a profit base project, I would be all over the advertising. Not sure what route to take with the project. It is a shame that the platform has ran out of steem! Or maybe it's just our community that has ran out of steem. Either way the round will be minted. It was a little disheartening to only be featured for 24 hours, when you see featured post stay in trending for days and sometimes weeks. Maybe steemit views on this project is not what the community thought it would be. After all, we are trying to push precious metals to a crypto base platform. Thanks for the advice though!

These 'promoted' trending page slots can't be too expensive though?
Screenshot (684).png

Pretty sure every tribe is set up that way and I'm thinking Steemit will be, eventually (not 100% sure). You'd just have to hit the 'promote' button and send some tokens to null for each tribe.

You can see two promoted posts there inside the green boxes. The bottom post is five days old. That's a long shelf life for a top slot.

I'm sure me, @raybrockman and a few other will bang our heads together and see what we can come up with. Appreciate the suggestions (and more importantly the interaction) @nonameslefttouse.

Watch this space..... 🤞

Deep breath everyone, I have lived through several Silver crashes, and the people that are left at the bottom are always a solid foundation.
I got busy with life, Actifit....just busy.....
I’m sure like me, their are other stackers out their on Steem,
And like I posted above Christmas is coming!💪👍😊

Can I get a code to avoid paying shipping again?

Send me a DM and I will get you the code.

Not sure where to DM so I have replied to my Proof of COA email. Let me know if you get it.

It's pretty tempting but I think I'm sticking with what I have, should be 5!

PS, can I check that I actually have 5? I got an email confirmation from the second order but not the first...

Fine. I bought 10 more...I hope you're happy now!! :-P

I think I might do a Splinterlands tournament to let people win some of them.

Wow! Thanks yabapmatt!

That might actually be a great way to drum up even more attention to the steem round. Great thinking @yabamatt. Thank you.

It’s obvious why the interest is down
98% of users from the heights in 2017/2018 left. They haven’t logged in in months. Steemit is dying sadly. I love the people here and I’m staying
But it’s a fact there are only 2000 -3000 active users left. Not accounts but active as in have posted recently.

I would think that 3000 is on the high side of a active posting group.

This post has been included in the latest edition of The Steem News - a compilation of the key news stories on the Steem blockchain.

Thanks for your continued support of the SSR

My only hesitation is the fact that Steem prices are so low. I'm afraid that I'll spend $50 worth for a couple of coins; then the prices will go up, and I'll end up paying WAY more for the coins in retrospect.

Then again, I have two 2017 and 2018 matching sets going. I kinda don't want to miss out on this year; especially if unclaimed numbers will be melted down. But I don't know enough about this stuff to make an informed decision. Somebody, talk me into it. How valuable do you think the 3-coin matching set will be?

Also, Gold Rush is one of the few reasons that I miss having paid cable tv.

Three matching numbers on three different series is almost unheard of. Infact it is almost impossible. Maybe you hold your steem and use BTC or Ltc. But three matching numbers is very rare....and then to have 2 sets of matching numbers.. imagine steem being as big as facebook, and fackbook had a silver round and some one had three different designs with matching COA numbers. Priceless.....

SOLD!!

Let me make sure I know what I'm doing:

I've checked the list, and both of my numbers are available. So, I need to add 2 coins and 2 COA payments to my cart. Then, at checkout, I list the numbers I'm requesting in the box.

Do I need to send proof that I already hold those numbers?

Yes you need to send proof, you can just post it right here in a comment. And you are correct on the 2 rounds, 2 coa and listing the numbers. Thanks

Order Placed! Thank you for the assistance!

Got your order and your numbers are reserved. Check you email for steem payment instructions. Thanks!

The design is nice!
Resteemed

You're welcome ;)

I am looking forward to seeing it in real life!

Holding silver is 1000 times better than looking at silver.
