I lost my patience and decided to buy more Steem to put me over the threshold to become a Minnow. Looking at the reward levels for comments and posts, it was going to take a long time to earn the 5000 vests, about 2 SP, to put me over.
It was actually more than that. I saw that the price of Steem is going down a bit, so it seemed a good opportunity to buy at a discount. If the price continues to decline, I may have to scrounge up more cash to buy more Steem. I’ll even go out and drive for Uber and Lyft for extra cash.
Having crossed the threshold, it’s going to be a long quest to reach the next level. It took me 8 months to get this far. I’m going to have to hustle.
