New at Splinterlands... new at a completely new (crypto) world

For many months I had heard CNBC and other financial shows talk about the craze of NFTs, cryptos, blockchain tech, fin tech, Coinbase IPO etc etc. I, as many with me, laughed and believed this must be a crazy hype.

Recently, I came across a YouTube clip mentioning top 5 games where you can earn cryptocurrencies. Splinterlands was mentioned first BUT the narrator pointed out that it is very complicated and only for the very strategic and talented ones. Such a great pitch! Of course got a bit triggered and thought that I must be smart enough to play that game.

And so it began. A simple card game... or so I thought. I visited the market and all of a sudden I saw all this so called NFTs... and it all made sense! NFTs wasn't some picture of an Ethereum rock, they actually had utility and demand... and the prices! A digital card of some Prince Julian selling for USD 50K!

This was market where you could buy, sell, rent, rent out, invest, get passive income... it was like a whole new market opening up before my eyes. And it was vibrant!

After jumping into this rabbit hole, I slowly got deeper and deeper into this new tech world. From knowing very little about cryptos other than "Bitcoin is digital gold", I started realizing that we are on a brink of a financial deregulatory revolution.

I consider myself somewhat smart, but after hours of trying to understand how all of this is linked, I realize that this community based innovation platform is beyond my grasp. Things are moving so fast, so free... this must be our times Klondyke gold rush.

For all you beginner out there, yes, this world is complicated. The YouTube narrator that sparked my interest was right: You need to be somewhat brainy to understand all of this. If you do though, I'm sure it will pay off. You are buidling skills and knowledge for the 21th century. I'm doing my based staying afloat here...

But if you don't want to understand or you're not brainy enough, the beautiful part is that you can also just enjoy the game. :)

Hello, @triss77! This is @traciyork from the @ocd (Original Content Decentralized) curation team. We noticed you shared your first post here on Hive - congratulations and welcome! It would also be awesome if you could do an introduction post, so our community can get to know you better. For an example of what an intro post is like, you can check out this one by my friend & curation team member -

Keeping Up With the Buzz - My Introduction to the Hive Community.

Speaking of community, we have many different ones here on the blockchain, devoted to all kinds of interests. Here's a link so you can check them all out - Hive Communities . I see you already found Splinterlands, and you might be interested in the Hive Gaming Community as well.

Also, as Hive can sometimes be quite confusing, the newly launched Newbies Guide should be helpful to you, as it is a growing repository of useful and easy to understand posts about how the Hive ecosystem works.

Please be aware that Hive is a bit different from other social media platforms since you are monetizing your blog, so it is important not to include content that you don't own without sources (and it shouldn't exceed 50% of the post). For more information, check this post - Why and How People Abuse and Plagiarise by @hivewatchers.

Since you're new, you may run into an RC (Resource Credits) error when trying to comment/post because you don't yet have enough Hive in your account yet. For assistance with a temporary delegation to get you started, be sure to check out the Gift Giver site.

For now, @lovesniper will follow your account and we are looking forward to seeing your intro post. Also, please mention (also known as tagging) @traciyork & @lovesniper in your intro post in order for us to be notified, so we can consider your post for OCD curation.

Hi! Thank you for your introduction! Yes, my first post a bit into my journey in this alternative world. :D

The intro your friend wrote is very impressive! Let me think about it. No into outing myself too much online since I know, although most people are awesome, there are some less kind people out there as well.

Thanks again @lovesniper and @traciyork for your heartfelt welcome!

/Triss
