Happy Blurtday!

in blurt •  7 months ago 


It was a year ago today when the Blurt blockchain first breathed life, I use the word "life" because a blockchain, especially a social one, embodies and sustains the spirit of community, it is the ecological tether between each one of us.

Blockchains connect us all in ways we don't even realise; through the Blurt blockchain, each member of our community is bound to the same risks and the same successes as each other, journies intertwined in a beautiful tapestry.

I would codename last year "Adversity" because that's what we faced together, we as a community, withstood both social and technical attacks designed to cause us to fail and hinder our prosperity, growth was not possible in this time, but we came out stronger, honed and resilient.

We as a community have overcome a lot and we have rebuilt what was lost, this year will be one of prosperity as we rise up from the fire stronger than ever.

It is often easy to focus on what went wrong and so we lose sight of the blessings we did receive and the wins we achieved. I this spirit I will give thanks for the gifts we did receive in the last year.

I am thankful...

  • That people came from all over the world to help launch Blurt one year ago today; when we thought we wouldn't have enough witnesses, more than enough came.

  • For having a stable wallet where users always have access to their funds, when we launched we didn't have one but within a week we did.

  • That Blurt was listed on several exchanges, Ionomy, Probit, Stex, Beldex, Hive-Engine, Steem-Engine and Leodex.

  • That the Blurt blockchain is light-weight enough to run on Raspberry pi's making it one of the most resillient edge-of-network blockchain social networks, free from dependency on centralised datacenters.

  • That @rycharde and @saboin have joined the top-tier of the Blurt Foundation, bringing with them their respective skills and passions in mathematics, economics, development, and system administration.

  • For the motivated and passionate core team consisting of @angelica7, @zahidsun, @offgridlife and @eastmael.

  • For the Blocktivity, Blockfolio, Coinpaprika and Coingecko listings, among others.

  • To the @symbionts team for stepping up with a block explorer and joinblurt.com new account creation replacement apps when we needed them most.

  • For the wonderful and motivated people I have met in our community since we launched, you cannot put a value on human connections, those relationships will continue giving long into the future.

  • That the official https://blurt.blog is back up and running, allowing us to continue to enhance the user experience.

  • To @etainclub for creating a prototype Android app for Blurt.

  • For the fantastic and highly responsive group of witnesses (validators) who upgrade their nodes timeously and provide troubleshooting support for every hark fork.

  • That Blurt is a place of zero judgment, where we can express ourselves and our ideas without being shot down, persecuted or downvoted because of differences of opinion.

If I have forgotten anything please remind me so I can add it to the list of things to be thankful for. I am thankful to each and every one of you who have embarked on this Blurt journey with us and contributed to the community.

Let's make the year ahead one to remember, a year of prosperity, growth, peace, unity, passion, perseverance and teamwork.

I end off this post with a new hope of things to come.

Happy Blurtday!

Happy first birthday blurt!!!

You are indeed right, blurt blockchain brought thousands of people close , although many did not believe in it when we started. I had friends who started before me but ended up dumping the account because of the low rate but today, blurt is thriving and moving even when no body expected it.

That's really cool!

Many great thanks to all of you who worked tirelessly to get these done!
You guys are seriously amazing!

Wow. Happy Birthday to BLurt. Still a long way to go. So far the journey is soooooo good. Best wish for next year.

Many thanks to everyone who works hard for Blurt and it is exciting to know that time flies and that Blurt has already celebrated its first anniversary. It is an excellent platform and I am very comfortable here, thank you all. Blurt to the moon.

Hi @megadrive

Thanks to everyone and to blurt for making everyone here a better platform, thanks to you and others like you who are on your team giving their best to keep this platform fighting.

Attacks are not good but in this case the attacks were from those who know how big blurt will be, and thanks to those attacks BLURT IS BIGGER.

Happy first anniversary to Blurt and everyone who works on it. With all the motivation for Blurt to continue growing.

Nice work
