Made a Bet About the Price of STEEM in Telegram.

in #steem4 years ago (edited)

While you might now about Telegram from the very busy, but also very informative and helpful Bitshares DEX chat. Still, among the Russian speaking people Telegram chats are one of the more used places where people from the cryptosphere mingle.

I am subscribed to about 30 different cryptocurrency and trading related news feeds and chats in Telegram.

Steemit was the window into the wolrd of Crypto for me, but Telegram chats were what I found behind that window

Anyway, one of the chats that I participate in from time to time, is the one that is related to the Telegram BTC exchange bot(referral link here), which is a p2p exchange thing. So, today I talked to this one guy I know from the DASH chat.

And the talk was going about the price of Dash going up. Thing is I am not surprized about it. First thing I noticed about crypto is how unfriendly it is to the layperson, and I've seen that before.

It is "The year of Linux on the Desktop!" all over again, was my thought, since most of the cool and trendy projects do nothing to make themselves easier for a layperson to get into them. And I know only about a couple of Cryptos from the top 20 that are working on making something easy to use for the common man. And thats why I said that I expect to see Dash and Steem to go up.

That is what let to a bet, I'd like to save here on the Steem blockchain.

I expect the price of Steem in relation to USD to be higher within a year than it is today 2017.02.15 ($0.131420):

While my opponent expects it to be lower.

In case of either of us being right on 2018.02.15 we'll check the price on Coinmarketcap and the losing party pays the other 1 DASH, plus the transaction fees of the network (without any sort of InstaSend etc things).

Wrote this in Busy. Busy is cool!

Update: some clarification to the terms of the bet by explicitly mentioning the dates and coinmarketcap.

Sort:  

Technically, you've already won.

Within this year, the price has risen from your starting point of $0.131420 to .133891.

You can now claim your DASH. =3

Yay for Steemit.

We'll see on 2018.02.15, thats when the result would be known. But I'll edit the post, to clarify that point.

Pffft, alright.

Yeah, I was only jokin' around.
I still think you're gonna win though. Enjoy your DASH. =p

Yep, I also think that I'm going to win, thanks! :D

Dear Users,
I came back live because the post listed below is immoral. I will make something clear to all. I am not a bot, I use no auto codes, I do all manually, and I'm very good at everything I do, and put my hands on. You all sit around entertaining and supporting this evil person @berniesanders . You see how he does accounts in negative and treats them less than human. You see the way he bashes and abuses this blockchain and others. Those who support this immoral user who is a legend in his own mind and has won nothing, are now subject to the same tactics used before, with some new added since we want to go to another level of treating people unequal. I will come and fuck up every post painting it with truth and turning viewers and potential payers away, including new users. After all, I too am an artist. I see good people being misled, and clueless following as well. Post like this only aggravate situations, they never help. It's never good to go talking like that about others. So if you're as evil as he is, I'm coming for you. Now I made a promise to a friend to lay these accounts down for the benefit of a lot of things, and a lot of people. So, I now will show the world who is responsible for my quick return. @berniesanders is an immoral, evil, simple minded, heartless with his ways, human being. You want to fix a real life or blockchain problem, Take his ass out, and let the blockchain flourish. Take out the real trash. My flags and spam messages trying to have an equal voice never made me less than any of you. And we all well know, we see my messages as I go 1 by 1. So my friends, since this tyrannical person wants to continue to abuse others, I will remain on the server with all accounts live until @berniesanders is in the -negative reputation. I want him to know what it is like to be attacked into silence. We will see how he spams then to be heard. That is now the only cure for this virus created by abuse on humanity. Have a good day, keep smart ~ This Is A Call To Take Out The Real Trash ~ @berniesanders
