Hive Goals - 2022 Jul 1 Update
Hello fellow Hivians!
Its the start of the month and after being gone most of May and June its time to see how I've been doing with my 2022 Hive goals. Not surprisingly I barely moved my numbers but despite this, the general crypto market crash has been decent when it comes to the ability to stack coins.
I continue to delegate a good chunk of my tokens to my guild's shared account 'acolytesofhelio' and I'm happy to see that the guild has been growing despite my absence as of late. Like my own goals, Acolytes of Helio have set some strong goals to become better curators and my delegations directly help that.
Out of 11 total goals I have already hit the mark for 5 of them with the other 6 steadily gaining traction. That said, it appears that some of my goals may not be reasonable without additional direct infusion of fiat. For example, I don't forsee hitting 10 BEE by January. For that matter, I'd be surprised if I got anywhere close.
Do here is my target progress so far:
|Token||Target Holding||July Holding||June Holding||May Holding|
If you were to compare the $ value of my tokens over time, generally speaking I'm down about 80% since the crypto crash of March 2022 despite having double the number of tokens in many cases. Of course I have some heartburn not selling and rebuying as the market started to crash but I've always followed the mantra that timing any market is a recipe for disaster and generally holding my position averaging in my buys has treated me well.
I have also added a new goal however it is less of an annual goal and more just a general one. I'm on a mission currently to obtain 100k starbits, the currency generated via the Rising Stars game. I've been playing the game off and on casually for the past few months and have enjoyed a bit of progress. However, its starting to get harder to accumulate cards via single pack purchases so I'm working towards my first 12 pack bulk buy. Currently I'm sitting at 33k/100k which I'm quite pleased with. I'm pulling in roughly 1.3k per day so I should see my first bulk buy in a couple months!
Finally I want to update everyone on the Cartel. If you aren't aware, its basically a meta NFT gaming guild. It holds multiple assets throughout many different NFT games and it is effectively owned by Cartel token holders. Think of the tokens sort of like a stock. The Cartel in its early days promised a sort of dividend payout from its activities to token holders. Well, this payout has finally started so I wanted to go through what that actually looks like. My Cartel token purchase (1 for $10) is now currently worth $4.32. This is a face value loss of $5.68 which given the overall crash, isn't too bad (-56%). Currently, the guild is ONLY paying out vouchers which is one of the Splinterlands related tokens. I'm hopeful that the token will also start to payout its curation token gains as well as that was one of my primary drivers in picking it up. So with 1 token, I currently receive .018 voucher per month which is worth $0.008. That is table math an APR of 0.9% (not including the initial loss of 56%).
Thank you all for reading and good luck to you at achieving your own personal goals.

You're doing pretty well on your goals, especially considering your absence and crypto crash.
I'm curious which tokens are you delegating to AOH?
Historically I've donated, HP, oneup, spt, pob, cent, etc.
Oh, ok you were talking about donating not delegating. Then it makes sense. I was just wondering if I could do that.
