So what's your excuse now?

There's been so much talking about how lucky / had confidential information those really...really...really early STEEM adopters were. And I ain't talking about the ones who simply jumped in at Steem during 2016 and had the chance to grow their stake fast due to high inflation and far less registered users which resulted in higher rewards, since fewer hands had access to the rewards pool, but for the who specifically jumped in between the 15th and 31st of March 2016.

They had the chance to also mine their stake. Not exactly the way Steemit.Inc did but they had their fair share. And since there is 99.99% that you don't belong to that group, let's see what was the best possible timing to invest in STEEM, using which is really easy to use and is also how @steemchiller's tool (which btw looks great after that latest face-lift) provides the external prices for STEEEM / SBD displayed in his tool.

Obviously the best case scenario is that you bought your STEEM stake around March 10th 2017, when STEEM's price bottomed out at $0.07...Did ya? NO? Too bad...

So according to, this is STEEM's chart from day 1 till this very moment. As you can see, if you invested back in July 2016 and held till now, your investment has gone down the toilet aka ~ (-96%)

Now let's see how do things look like for those that jumped in STEEM exactly a year ago. Hmmm...apparently you are down ~ (-58.5%)

But from now on, it's getting really interesting. You see, those who kept complaining that they didn't know about Steem and found it out randomly a couple of years later, such as myself, they had their fair share as well. As you can see...If you've purchased your stake exactly 6 months ago your investment looks...great!

Those that armed their hand exactly 3 months ago, looks like they are doing even better...Almost +50% ROI? I'd take that any day...

2020-02-29 23_28_28-Steem (STEEM) _

Even if you decided to start buying exactly one month ago, you are still doing great. +16% ROI in a month? Yeah...

2020-02-29 23_28_46-Steem (STEEM) _

And it gets even better. Even if you became a member of the Steem fam TODAY and decided to boost your account a little so that you don't have RC issues and such...your choice seems to be wise. And that's because you have ~ +14% ROI in a day.

2020-02-29 23_29_32-Steem (STEEM) _

So what's your excuse now? Don't do the very same mistake most people know exactly what I am talking about, right? Right...

Food for thought.

Have a great weekend people.

Your chance to get rich ffs...

ha, love this post. Nice history on the price and also, hoping those that bought today are ahead next week!

They are already ahead :)

At least there’s no didn’t want to buy at so high prices excuse anymore.

This ignorant user is spreading dangerous lies in order to attempt to gain popularity and attention from the new commie overlord. Ignore the ignorant twat bag, you'll immediately feel better about your life.

You're right, there are no excuses. If the price goes higher anyone with a decent amount of Steem and the ability to attract upvotes is going to do well

anyone with a decent amount of Steem and the ability to attract upvotes

Let's not forget the ability to distribute upvotes too. Curation rewards are underappreciated imo, but anyone with a decent stake many have a similar result to a very good author who attracts those upvotes ;)

I'm also poor.

I've been a buying few in a whatsapp/Telegram group for Nigerians though

I feel you bud. I ain’t rich either. Just prefer to buy some STEEM here and there instead of random useless stuff

I hardly look at the Steem price anymore, I just enjoy to write when I can spare the time and energy.

Enjoying the ride is the most important thing.

Great perspective.

I bought up around 24k Steem from August to Jan and am sitting on around 60% profit but I've been following curation trails like travelfeed, steemitworldmap and curie to help distribute some upvotes and rewards to deserving authors.

Still posting as well but just building my SP really, targeting Orcadom by the end of the year, which reminds me, power up time! Steem on 😎
