Cleaning the Lamp

2 Corinthians 4:3

But if our gospel is hidden, it is hidden to them that are lost:

Every time I ride my motorcycle during night time, I can not make it to a high speed. One reason is that many vehicles have bright, blinding headlights. You won’t be able to see your way and fall off from the road and cause accidents.

Other vehicles have flickering and dim lights that are hard for you to see them in a far distance that the time you notice them is that they’re almost in your front causing you to hit them.


Sometimes, it’s your own vehicle that has a weak light. The glass that encased the light is foggy and needed to be cleaned up. We may have a say to other vehicles that we cannot see them clearly but at the same time, we are also unnoticeable to them.


There are times when our lights as Christians are dim. People can no longer see the beauty of Jesus in us. Sometimes, their good works exceed our good works and that blinds them to see the light of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Our lives should be free from the fogs of sin so that others may see their way to the Savior. Our lives is the gospel that others can only hear.

“If our lives are clouded by sin, the Light of the World cannot be clearly seen through us.”
 -Paul Chappell

The Gift of Heart – The Greatest Thing You Can Offer To God

Proverbs 23:26
My son, give me thine heart and let thine eyes observe my ways.

Though we know that King Solomon wrote this, he could not perfectly say to his children that they give their hearts to him. We understand that King Solomon is speaking here in the name and person of Divine Wisdom.

Why does God ask us of the gift of the heart? Let’s see what the Bible says about it.

Matthew 6:21
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

What you value in life shows your heart. Many things clamor the hearts of Christians. Some of them are fame, wealth, and power. Fame, the desire to be popular in this world but ashamed of the gospel of Christ. Another thing is wealth that distracts people to be honest and faithful. And power that intoxicates the spirit of man to rule unjustly over his fellow.

The heart is deceitful when is not offered and given to the hands that made it. It is wrecked when it is given to the wrong master. But is the greatest thing you can offer to God because all things done with the heart is what pleases the eyes of God for He looks on the heart. When you work with the heart, there is power.


The King James Bible

$100,000 Bitcoin Prediction Is Conservative, Says Morgan Creek Digital Founder

The co-founder of institutional digital asset manager Morgan Creek Digital says his prediction that Bitcoin will hit $100,000 in the next 2.5 years is conservative.

In a new interview with CNN, Anthony Pompliano says the effects of the Federal Reserve’s decision to cut interest rates for the first time in more than a decade will likely be felt right around Bitcoin’s next halving in May of 2020.

“Whenever we get to recessive periods or slowing growth, central banks have two tools. They can cut interest rates, which they just did yesterday and they can print money, quantitative easing. And when they do both of those things, it usually takes six to 18 to actually feel the effect of those tools. And what it’s going to do is coincide with the Bitcoin halving, which we can get into what that is. And so we think that cutting rates, printing more money and the systematic structure of Bitcoin is going to lead to higher prices for Bitcoin over a long period of time.”

Pompliano says he believes Bitcoin’s fixed supply will be the foundation for the leading cryptocurrency’s growth in the coming years.

“The code was created and there’s 21 million that are going to be distributed over time. An easy way to think about it is every 10 minutes, 50 Bitcoin were given out in the beginning to people who were running the software, the miners. That went on for four years and then after four years, that reward got cut in half. So it went from 50 to 25. Four years later it got cut in half again to 12.5. And in May of 2020 it will get cut in half again to 6.25.

When you have a deflationary asset, it has a disinflationary monetary schedule. Meaning that there’s some inflation in the beginning but it gets lower and lower over time. It’s very similar to the stock-to-flow ratio of gold. So there’s existing supply and you’re going ahead and continuing to add to it. The difference between Bitcoin and gold is with Bitcoin we know exactly how many are getting created today. The second thing is we know the total supply available, which is 21 million. So it’s not, ‘Hey, I wonder how much is in the ground.’ We can actually go in and audit or verify the software code of the system.”

As for his big prediction, Pompliano says he expects BTC’s trademark volatility and explosive growth to continue after it hit a bottom of around $3,200 in December of last year.

“In 2017, Bitcoin went up 20x. So it’s a hyper-volatile asset. We’ve seen it go up 20x, 30x, 50x at times. We’ve also seen it drawdown over 80% three times. In August we said, ‘Look, it was trading around $7,500 or $7,000 – it’s going to drop to $3,000. It ended up doing that around December of last year. And then [we said] it was going to recover back to $10,000. And it did that. And so, we think now from about $10,000 where it sits today, it’s a pretty conservative estimate to see it hit $100,000 in the next 2.5 years.”blank


OpenBazaar Developers Launch a Crypto Marketplace for Mobile

OB1, the developers behind the online decentralized marketplace and currency trading platform OpenBazaar announced a mobile counterpart called Haven.

Haven allows users to buy and sell goods and services directly with each other, using cryptocurrencies, without relying on middlemen who take a cut of merchants’ transactions or gather shoppers’ data.

The app is organized into four sections: shopping, social, chat, and a non-custodial multi-wallet. For all features of the peer-to-peer network, user information is stored locally and protected with end-to-end encryption, meaning only the parties involved in the sale or conversation are able to see the details.

Since OB1 launched its 2.0 of OpenBazaar, 250,000 nodes joined the permissionless network. Jenn Cloud, OB1 communications lead, said “there is a core user base of several thousand who frequently use the software and many more are casual users.” A substantial proportion of the “long-lasting nodes” are merchants.

The app has many of the same features as OpenBazaar, but does not support P2P cryptocurrency trading. Additionally, dispute moderation is only supported by the desktop client.

The social feature is new and enables users to easily communicate with each other. Importantly, it is “not connected to transactions or any other activities on the network and will never post anything automatically,” said Cloud.

Like OpenBazaar, Haven will support BTC, BCH, ZEC and LTC. The representative said plans for a previously reported native token, OBC, are currently on hold.

Looking forward, however the team plans to add Ethereum support. Also, though “no firm plans have been made by the OB1 team… several in the OpenBazaar community have begun work to see if it’s possible to support Monero,” said Cloud.

Haven is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play. This week, the company is offering special deals, such as fifty percent off select electronics and Haven store gift cards, posted in the app “at undisclosed times.”

OB1 has raised $10.5 million to date from investors including Union Square Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, OMERS Ventures, BlueYard, Bitmain, Digital Currency Group, and venture capitalist William Mougayar.

Leading Hedge Fund Says Bitcoin and Crypto Will Benefit From ‘Large Net Positive Effect’ Via Libra

The crypto and blockchain hedge fund Pantera Capital says it believes Facebook’s Libra will have a “large net positive effect on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.”

In a new investment letter, Pantera CEO Dan Morehead says Facebook’s effort is an impressive attempt to create a stable digital asset.

“I am particularly impressed with the SDR-type basket the Facebook team decided on to back the tokens. It’s not wildly fluctuating, nor is it pegged to a single country’s currency. Libra will be fully collateralized with four of the oldest, most stable currencies:  the U.S. dollar, the British pound, the Euro, and the Japanese yen.”

Detractors, however, point out that Libra is backed by powerful companies, merely displacing centralized financial services that are in the hands of the banking elite with similar services shifting into the hands of big tech.

Despite the intense scrutiny surrounding Libra, Pantera points to Facebook’s global reach as a core strength of the project which it equates with a similar effort made by the International Monetary Fund 50 years ago.

“The IMF created Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) as an international reserve currency in 1969. (This year is the 50th anniversary of the SDR.)  It comprises a basket of fiat currencies weighted by relative importance within the world’s trading and financial systems. However, it never really was used because nobody could transact in it. Libra is designed to be used.”

According to Pantera, Libra also addresses complaints about US dollar hegemony by offering a solution that pushes the global financial system trajectory towards a more inclusive and technologically advanced system.

“We believe that the launch of Libra will have a large net positive effect on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Increased competition will breed the strongest networks that provide real benefits to society – there isn’t one right way to achieve this. Just as cryptocurrency may be the next evolution in finance, there will be evolutions within cryptocurrency itself. The approach described in the Libra whitepaper walks a tightrope between two extremes – and potentially creates the best of both worlds.blank


eToro CEO Will Join Tron’s Justin Sun at Upcoming Power Lunch With Warren Buffett and Charlie Lee

Tron and BitTorrent CEO Justin Sun is gearing up to meet legendary investor and Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett for lunch in San Francisco. eToro CEO Yoni Assia has just announced that he will attend the meeting on July 25th, joining more colleagues in the cryptosphere, including Litecoin creator Charlie Lee and Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire who have also announced their attendance.

Sun won an invitation to dine with Buffett after placing the winning bid of $4.56 million at the legendary investor’s annual charity event for the Glide Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides services for the homeless in San Francisco.

While Sun says he doesn’t presume that he and his crypto friends can flip Buffett, an outspoken crypto critic who has called Bitcoin “rat poison” that is suited for fools and gamblers, the meeting provides an opportunity to bridge the schism. It also gives Sun a chance to tell Buffett about blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies first-hand, as Sun believes Buffett has gotten bad information about the industry.

  • eToro’s seat at the table itself marks a bridge. The social trading and multi-asset brokerage company was founded in 2007 before expanding into cryptocurrencies. It launched Bitcoin trading via CFDs in 2013 and added support for Ethereum, XRP, Litecoin and other cryptocurrencies in 2017. The company reports that it now has over 9 million users around the world trading traditional financial assets as well as cryptocurrencies.Ublank

LeBron Drowning With The Lakers, Playoffs Seems To Be Out Of Reach.

Sunday’s defeat of the LA Lakers, 107-131 by the Boston Celtics was the 5th consecutive loss for the Lakers, they now sit on 11th position on the Western Conference table, though they still have a mathematical chance of still making the playoffs, but realistically, with the way Lakers are playing, it will take something special and dramatic for the Lakers to make the playoffs, with just 17 games to go, and thus, LeBron’s incredible 13 consecutive playoffs is in great danger. Only 3 players had more consecutive NBA Finals appearances than LeBron; Bill Russell-10, Sam Jones-9, Tom Heinsohn-9, Frank Ramsey-8, LeBron James-8, and even fewer had more consecutive playoffs, as shown below,


LeBron James, widely known as the GOAT of the NBA because of his achievements right from his draft into the Cleveland Cavaliers, to his trade to the Miami Heats and the present. His remarkable 13 consecutive years in the playoffs, 8 straight NBA finals since 2011, and 3 championships are worthy of all the accolades he’s received. His 3 championship wins, includes a back to back triumph with the Miami Heats in 2012 & 2013, and on his return to Cleveland Cavaliers, he helped the Cavs to win their 1st ever title in 52 years in 2016.

So, what happened to LeBron? could his recent dip in form be attributed to the injury sustained early in the year? or Is he just being caught up in the Lakers’ playoffs drought? The Los Angeles Lakers last appearance in the playoffs was an opening round loss, 0-4 to San Antonio Spurs in 2012-13, and last won the NBA championship in 2009-10, defeating Boston Celtic 4-3, a 3rd successive defence of the title from 2007-08. Their 5-years playoffs drought may have played a major role in bringing in LeBron James at the beginning of the season, to bring back the good old glory days, but it was not the season both LeBron and Lakers had hoped for so far.

Where did it go wrong for the Lakers? It started right from the 1st-3 matches of the regular season where Lakers lost the 1st game 119-128 to Portland Trail Blazers, then the next, a home loss, 115-124 to Houston Rockets(a game that was also marred with on-court scuffle), and the 3rd, an agonizing overtime loss, 142-143 to San Antonio Spurs. Though the Lakers picked up from the losses, and win the next 2 games, they never really get hold of the season, as they could not go 5 straight games without a defeat, more like 1 step forward, 2 steps backwards.

Lakers 5 games losing streak includes 120-131 loss to Milwaukee Bucks, 109-118 lost to Phoenix Suns, 105-113 loss to Los Angeles Clippers, 99-115 loss to Denver Nuggets and the Boston Celtics respectively, highlighted a topsy-turvy season Lakers are having. LeBron cut a frustrating figure in some of the losses, he was seen walking out of the game against the Milwaukee Bucks before the final buzzer, it is hard not to feel for him.

Will LeBron inspire one of the greatest comebacks ever record in the history of the NBA? It will be a miracle if Lakers make the playoffs. However, if LeBron and Lakers missed out, which looks likelier, it’s a disappointment but not the end of the world.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,

regroup and come back next season stronger.

🌱Homesteading and Horticulture 🌱

Good morning, afternoon and evening from me in England!


I’ve just been out to my Polytunnel in our rather bijou cottage garden, to check on the tomato seeds I sowed last Sunday, and, voila! We have lift off!


I bought the heated propagator from Ebay last year and it works a treat.
The unit has been designed to automatically maintain the compost temperature at 19 degrees Celsius (+/-2 degrees). The electric heated base is designed to transfer gentle heat to the compost – when the heat is on, it will feel warm rather than hot to the touch.



The Birds eye Chilli’s that I grew last year,
Which are 100-200k SHU, still had a some fruits left on the plant so, I extracted the seeds amd left them to dry out for a few days. I’ve just planted them too so should have a good crop of seedlings in a month or so, thanks to the



I look forward to the spring and seeing all the fruits of my labour! It really is a wonderful passion, horticulture and homesteading.

riding on the sea of dreams and waving once I’m free
Travel to a time before you always seemed to be
happiness was once forgot and wasted all on me*

and wondered why we change
floating in and out
thoughts surround our doubts*

*When you find the one to love
keep them closely by
precious moments that you share
on a wing to fly*

and wondered why we change
floating in and out
thoughts surround our doubts*

Stish 1.0 vs Stish 2.0

What Is The Difference Between The Original Stish1.0 and Stish2.0?

This question gets brought up from time to time. Members who used the platform prior to the Summer of 2018 likely received Stish1.0 Tokens. They were developed as place holder tokens for an original concept that proved to not work as intended. As we pulled away from another platform and decided to create an independent brand and identity we began working on Stish2.0. The main difference between the tokens has been discussed in the social portal and in a few posts but to clarify let’s go over them again.

Stish1.0 Had ZERO decimals. It was never developed really for day to day trading. It was simply designed to be simple and show ownership or participation in our original concept SteemThat. Which was going to be a flavor of user interface for the Steem blockchain and also offered many cool tools. As things kept changing at Steem we made a decision to stop development and change directions and provide a real social network with an equitable rewards distribution system.  Stish1.o had the original contract address: 0xe743b591a9fbf593ff2214c4b3b7c9bf1122431a

which can be viewed here ….  …..

Many people ask from time to time what they can do with the old Stish1.0? All accounts that had 1.0 which were less than 200 receive the New Stish2.0. If you still have the old Stish1.0 you can burn it by sending it here to this wallet address.  0x7673Ba7A671e6C439222B447E32CA22B6Da428c6

STISH1.0 Is Completely Phased Out And Will Not Be Traded Or Supported By The Stish Team. We do not expect to have any other version changes unless we launch our own blockchain at which time the currency will be easily convertible. ( 2 years away or more.)

So what can Stish2.0 do that Stish1.0 couldn’t do or do easily?

Stish2.0 was developed with more advanced Ethereum protocols. Stish2.0 is actually an ERC223 token and is exceptional at not losing tokens. The old Stish1.0 contract would receive tokens and lose them. People would send crypto directly to the old Stish1.0 wallet address or smart contract address and lose their tokens. Stish2.0 prevents this from happening. This is super beneficial for all who use Stish!

Stish2.0 came developed and enhanced with features such as direct ICO participation. Users can always Simply send ETH to the smart contract address located here:


and receive their Stish instantly at the price of 1 ETH = 1000 Stish. Which is a steal but supplies are extremely limited. We also were able to code in the ability to run the Token event from and allow some simple charts and displays. Stish2.0 allowed us the ability to increase the Total supply from 1,000,000 to 100,000,000 with the expected growth potential we see possible. This allows us to do some air drops and promotional things that we were unable to do with Stish1.0. Overall Stish2.0 is leaner and meaner. It recently broke some trading day records which we were happy to see some volume. Stish can be traded on the Saturn Network.



You can view the contract on Etherscan and other websites that show smart contracts and explore the blockchain. Here is the Etherscan link.

You can also learn more about the cryptocurrency and the hot wallets by visiting The Stish Crypto Page and Stish Wallet Page.



An Intriguing EPL Derby Day, Early Goal, Spot Kicks and Injury Time Winner, Just What Every Derby Matches Needed.

English Premier League fans were treated to a truly super Sunday with 3 sumptuous derby matches in West London derby, North London derby, and the Merseyside derby, What a match they all turned out to be.

Super Sunday kicked off with an earlier afternoon match between home side Chelsea and their West London rival, Fulham. It was an easy 2-0 win for Chelsea, with Pedro and substitute Reuben Loftus-Cheek getting the goals.

My take from Chelsea’s point of view;

▪Sarri remains adamant on using Jorginho at the base of Chelsea’s midfield. There have been calls after the defeat to Spurs for the Chelsea coach to restore Ngolo Kante back to his natural position, a place now occupied by Jorginho, no cause for alarm this time though as Fulham posed little or no threat, as Chelsea won comfortably. Sarri has reiterated that Jorginho is still his anchor midfield man.

▪Reuben Loftus-Cheek deserves more playing time. The young lad came off the bench to double Chelsea lead. Coaching team should look into Loftus-Cheek shout for a regular playing time.

The second derby match of Sunday afternoon was between Arsenal and their bitter North London rival Tottenham. Boy! What a match. Fans and spectators were treated to a 6-goal thriller, as Arsenal claimed the bragging right with a 4-2 win over Spurs.

My take from Arsenal’s point of view;

▪Emery sure knows what he is doing with his Arsenal team. His response and decision during the match were spots on. He started with a 3-4-3 formation, Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan on either side of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in attack, 3 central defenders with wing-backs, He then made changes immediately at start of 2nd half and switched formation to 3-4-1-2, Aaron Ramsey playing behind 2 central strikers with substitute Alexandre Lacazette joining Aubameyang in attack, he then reverted to traditional 4-3-1-2 when Shkodran Mustafi got injured. That’s a man with plan B.

▪Aubameyang and Lucas Torreira are making name for themselves at the Emirate, Aubameyang scoring with ruthless precision and Torreira sweeping the midfield for Arsenal. They both are bringing back the good old days’ memories of Thierry Henry, Gilberto Silver, and co.

▪Arsenal still struggling in the 1st half of matches. This is a worry for the coach, if every Arsenal matches were to finish at the halftime, Arsenal would have been rooted rock bottom of the EPL table. How long will their 2nd half performances bail them out of trouble, it remains to be seen?

Away from London, to the Merseyside where Liverpool hosted arch-rival Everton. It was the home side Liverpool that stole a dramatic injury-time 1-0 winner. The result did not reflect the full story of the match, it was an entertaining end to end match, it could have ended in a 3 all draw, or a 5 all draw. The match was heading towards a nill all draw until a 96th injury time error from Everton goalkeeper Pickford handed Liverpool’s substitute striker D. Origi with a last-gasp winner, a goal that got Liverpool manager running onto the pitch to celebrate with his goalkeeper Allison.

Talking point from Liverpool’s point of view;

▪Liverpool on the heels of league leader Man City. Liverpool isn’t ready to give up on the league, they keep grinding out results even when they are not in full throttles, for me that is a mark of a champion.

▪Allison proving his worth for Liverpool. He made some great saves to keep his team in the match, reason why the manager went to celebrate with him when Liverpool scored.

▪Liverpool Manager ran onto the pitch to celebrate his team’s late winner. Klopp could not control his emotion, as he ran to celebrate with his goalkeeper Allison, and there have been calls condemning his action. We are all humans, sometimes the flesh got the better of us.

I cannot remember the last time fans got to watch 3 derbies in a day, Sunday the 2nd was such day and fans certainly got the worth for their money across the world.

Fernando Alonso Bowed Out , as Curtain Dropped on F1 Season.

2018 F1 season came to an end in Abu Dhabi last Sunday 26th, a week after MotoGP counterpart ended. And it was a familiar face that stood head and shoulder high above other drivers on the podium.

The 4 major talking points from the seasons ending race in Abu Dhabi were:
▪Fernando Alonso bid farewell to F1
▪Lewis Hamilton took control from start to finish
▪Hamilton’s 11th win of the season
▪Renault’s Nico Hulkenberg survived horror crash

Fernando Alonso bid farewell to F1.

2-time (2005 & 2006) F1 champion Fernando Alonso retires from F1. The Spaniard and McLaren’s driver completed his last race for F1 on Sunday where he finished 11th. His career started way back in Aug 2001 in the Australian Grand Prix. Leading the accolades for a worthy competitor were Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel. So long, Fernando Alonso, F1 is in good hands.

Lewis.jpegLewis Hamilton. Getty images

Lewis Hamilton won the Abu Dhabi race.

This won’t come as a surprise to many as Hamilton not for the 1st time this season, produce a dominant race ahead of Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas and age long rival Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel. It was Valtteri, not Vettel that staged an earlier challenge with Hamilton, but he soon faded away as he was overtaken by Vettel, Verstappen, and Ricciardo.

Hamilton’s 5th career win

It was Hamilton’s 5th career championship win. He had already secured championship before Abu Dhabi race. Abu Dhabi race was Hamilton’s 11th victory of the season. His other victories were Azerbaijan, Spanish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Singapore, Russian, Japanese, and Brazilian Grand Prix. Ferrari’s drivers of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen are championship 2nd and 3rd respectively.

nico-hulkenberg.jpgHulkenberg crashed car skysports

Nico Hulkenberg crashed

Renault’s Nico Hulkenberg survived horror crashed. A little race accident that involves French and Haas driver Romain Grosjean, and German and Renault’s driver Nico Hulkenberg led to the latter flipped over and crashed against the barriers. Thankfully he came out of the crash unhurt. More reason why safety measures must be taken seriously.

here is a highlight from the race:


2019 F1 season is just around the corner, is there any chance for a rookie driver to stage an upset, or is it still the same old rivalry between Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel. Time will tell.

Despair for Lerma, Delight for Arsenal on a Premier League Sunday Afternoon

Every soccer/football player find so much joy and delight in scoring goals against their opponent, regardless of whether forward players, defensive players or even goalkeepers, the wild celebrations after every goal scored explains it all. Having said that, scoring into one’s own goal post brings as much as agony and despair, especially if such own goal cost your team victory. Such is the story of Bournemouth’s Colombian international midfielder Jefferson Lerma on Sunday afternoon 25th Nov.

Check the highlights below;


It was an English Premier League match between Bournemouth and Arsenal FC at the Vitality stadium, a matchup that saw the away side Arsenal claimed victory over Bournemouth, thanks to Lerma’s 30 minutes first time volley from edge of his own 18 yard box into his own net/goal post that put Arsenal on path of victory.

The host fought relentlessly, even Lerma at some point rattled Arsenal crossbar to atone for his mistake, and on the stroke of half-time got their deservedly equalizer when Josh King delightfully curled into Arsenal’s net.

If the first half was close, the second half was even closer, looks like the match was heading to a stalemate when the away side managed a combination of passes, Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi and Sead Kolasinac combined well and the latter squared to Aubameyang to slide home for Arsenal’s winner.

The home side, like it was in the first half prowled and probed for an equalizer, but the combinations of the woodwork, Arsenals goalkeeper and a dogged defense prevented them.

My take on the match

Arsenals Unai Emery opted for 3-man central defenders, fully aware of the threat Bournemouth pose, a tactical change that paid off, as the extra man in the defense helped kept Bournemouth at bay.

This lost to Arsenal was the 3rd straight defeats by Eddie Howe’s team, a couple of 1-2 loss to Manchester United, Newcastle United and now Arsenal FC. I think putting a 2-1 scoreline on Bournemouth matches could be a bet banker these days.

There are plenty matches to play yet, so you can atone for your mistake Lerma, you can as well talk to your manager for a change of position, maybe into a striker, that goal was one beauty of a goal.

A Race to Forget for 14 MotoGP riders on a Slippery ValenciaGP Tracks

It was 2018 MotoGP’s season-ending race at Valencia on Sunday 18th Nov, as 24 riders rivaled each other for a place on the podium, riders include reigning champion, Spaniard and Honda’s Marc Marquez, 7-time champion and Italian Valentino Ross, Yamaha’s teammate and Spaniard Maverick Vinales, 3-time champion Spaniard and Ducati’s Jorge Lorenzo.

It was a race with a lot to ride for as the championship 2nd and 3rd places were yet to be decided, though Spaniard Marc Marquez already retained his title yet again when he won the Japan Grand Prix to make it 3 championships a row for him and 5 careers overall.

The race started as planned but nature had other ideas as the heavens were opened for a downpour, and it wasn’t long before the imminent effects of the slippery tracks began to manifest, and the falls and crashes kept piling up and just won’t stop. Eventually, the organizers succumb to the will of nature, and flagged the race red for 30 minutes, as the tracks became unsafe for riders.

Here are the highlights of a wet Valencia MotoGP race;

It was a 27-lap race which had to be restarted at 13th lap, by which time only 15 riders were able to put their bikes back on track out of 24 riders that started the race. Thank goodness there were no serious injuries except for minor bruises here and there.

The race was won by Italian and Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso closely followed by Spaniard and Suzuki’s Alex Rius, with another Spaniard and KTM’s Pol Espargano coming in 3rd, after notably names that include Marc Marquez, Valentino Rossi, and even Jorge Lorenzo had slipped and fallen by wayside so to say. It was Ruiz that led for the majority of the race before been overtaken by Dovizioso. It was the Italian 4th win of the season that ultimately made him championship 2nd, with Rossi who finished the race a distance 13th coming overall 3rd.

If there is anybody wondering what MotoGP season is?

Grand Prix Motorcycle racing season better known as MotoGP season is the road racing world championship – Wikipedia.

Series of road races are being hosted across the world, and the rider that accumulated the highest wins and points wins the championship.

A wise man was quoted saying;

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you. – Frank Lloyd Wright

I guess the organizers failed to study the weather that day or they underestimated the weather, and it sure failed a handful riders. I believe we should all pay attention to weather forecasts.

Novak Djokovic Lost Again to Another Young Prospect, Is Power Changing Hands?

2018 ATP final hosted at the O2 Arena, London was the season-ending tennis tournament between world number 1and 31-year-old Serbian Novak Djokovic and world number 5 and 21-year-old German Alexander Zverev. It was a match-up where the odds understandably favored N. Djokovic.

The ATP finals are the 2nd highest tier of annual men’s tennis tournament after the 4 Grand Slam tournaments – Wikipedia.

N. Djokovic against A. Zverev was another stern showdown between experience and youthfulness, just like it was in the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 hosted in Paris between Djokovic and Karen Khachanov about 15 days ago, and just like in Paris where Khachanov shocked Djokovic, lightning struck twice as Zverev also stunned Djokovic in London. It seems the young lads are gaining a whole lot of ground on their older counterparts.

The omens were there as Zverev battled past world number 3 and 37-year-old Roger Federer 7-5, 7-6 (7-5) in the semi-finals to book a place in final against Djokovic who had an easy semi-final win of 6-2, 6-2 over South African Kevin Anderson.

The final was not what Djokovic had hope for, as he struggled to imposed himself over Zverev, Zverev was the better player, Powerful serves than Djokovic, fewer errors than Djokovic, and he eventually took both sets 6-4, 6-3 to win the finals.

A. Zverev sky sports

▪Zverev became the 1st player to beat both Djokovic and Federer in the same ATP final.
▪He is also the first to beat the top two seeds in the semi-finals and final of the event since Andre Agassi in 1990.
▪Zverev is the first German winner since Boris Becker in 1995.
▪He at age 21 years and 6 months became the youngest champion at ATP final since Djokovic in 2008 – BBCSports

Take nothing away from the young German for his win, but Djokovic was the architect of his own defeat, he was far from his usual best. His performance was characterized with unusual weaken serves, I mean he had not lost his serve coming into the final, and just 1 ace compared to Zverev’s 10 aces tells the story, coupled with 1,2 unforced error too many.

With Zverev and Khachanov coming through the ranks and breathing down the neck of the big boys, Tennis fans around the world are relishing a tantalizing 2019 tournaments already.

Here is a little highlight of the Djokovic vs Zverev;

A New Way To Think About Cryptocurrency As Rewards Based Social Media Or Gamification Strategy

For over 1 year we have been working to refine our message to make it as easy as possible for new people who want to get involved in cryptocurrency to understand what crypto is and how Stish and have value. We often found ourselves talking about the first cryptocurrency Bitcoin and then found ourselves talking about Ethereum which helps make Stish all possible as Stish is built on the Ethereum blockchain and their miners process it all.

We also are always asked, “How does Stish get value and why should people buy it?” So the obvious answer, it is a store of value and a unique type of time value asset class that will have a free market trading value. This value might come together based off of how people value their time and energy to create content (the PEE theory we discuss from time to time) and also what the markets are willing to pay for the currency. People looking to buy the currency are hoping the value goes up. In theory all people value their time and energy more and more as their government issued currency feels inflation and they see the costs of goods increase and wages increase etc. So there will always be a tendency for people to value their time and energy or artistic value with a government issued comparative in mind until crypto takes over the world!

This answer is sufficient for me and as Stish starts trading on exchanges again soon we will see where the value of Stish goes. I would like to see the low sellers gobbled up and people who value their time and energy and artistic value determine the price through their sell orders and demand anyone wanting to hold Stish pay a fair minimum for it. This is a perfect world and who knows if this is even achievable. As we develop for the Stish Stash platform which is a gaming platform we have came up with some creative new concepts.

Crypto Creative New Concepts and Math To Back It Up!

With all new technology especially cryptocurrency and rewards based platforms investors or lenders of capital want to see some hard numbers. They could care less about theories or estimates. They seriously just want to see how the platform or currency can afford to pay them back for their risk and they want to see the hard numbers.

Over the last year we have spoken to many financial planners, bankers, investors, average ordinary traders and users. We have learned a ton about the space and also discovered things that many people may not like to talk about. We have uncovered new risks,which crypto has it’s inherent risks, and we have found workable mathematical formulas that can be replicated. The challenge is often just getting accurate metrics to understand real costs and plugging the numbers into the formulas.

We have tried several different routes to take Stish to the next level. We have allowed small purchases of the Token by users to help fund development. This has been helpful but in total we raised less than one half of one percent in total invested revenue into the project. We did not advertise much and perhaps leaned heavy on hopefully going viral or people sharing the platform with friends and family too much. With a real financial incentive for growth being so in your face we just assumed people would naturally take it upon themselves to drive growth of the platform. We were flat out wrong!

Not achieving the type of success we had hoped for naturally we talked about seeking corporate financing to grow the platform. We still will likely have to do this if we do not resolve the problem with explaining the incentive properly for natural growth. When looking to get all of the numbers that bankers were asking for we uncovered our one flaw in our failure to achieve natural growth like we had hoped. It became apparent to us that we had not really ever conveyed how Stish really has value especially in the future. We often just assumed that because we understood something that others understood things and we all had the same baseline of knowledge. When it comes to cryptocurrency this is a huge mistake. Everyone is at a different level of knowledge and understanding and we need a simple point by point explanation of the core things to even discuss the more complex issues.

Formulas and numbers could help people see the big picture much easier than just assuming they already got the big picture. We also looked for ways to actually create revenues through traditional means to add more value that traditional business minded people could see and then do analysis from. For instance we will likely bring back advertisements sitewide to help cover operating costs, but instead of pocketing the profits how about we actually share the revenue with each member. So each member receives Stish and they can trade it on the free market. Their Stish is essentially representative of the value that they add to the platform. Whether it be through content creation that then receives ad revenues or their content causes new users to join which then increases ad revenues or Stish distribution.

The key is that each user does have a value to the community and that value can be sold essentially as needed. Users then ultimately own the platform that they seek to develop and grow. There is a super incentive for members to share the platform with other. For members to create only high quality content. To interact with others in a positive way and create comments 0r supportive content. Members control their own worth really and for the first time actually can sell their social networking worth from time to time of hold it for a raining day! Most people are already creating social media content or blog content somewhere so allocating that time to Stish It makes better sense. They can then one day actually get something for their efforts verses just making large corporate elitist social media conglomerate filthy rich.

The power is returned back to the people through this business model.

The model is quite simple and the math is easy for most people to wrap their heads around. It is the only logical way to develop a social media rewards based website and might be a logical method for gaming websites as we will launch in 2019 to test it out in that niche also. How does the math add up and what is the magic formula for success?

Always keeping user interest in mind is critical. Getting a website actual costs and profit percentages is also important. All of this could be lumped up into one sum total called overhead or operating costs. Generally profits are not calculated here but for easy math a fixed percentage of total revenue works as the real value for the platform is in max growth and one day small liquidations of reserve currency. In the case of Stish the owner and founder retains 10 Million Stish. The incentive then is performance by the founder and team to grow the platform and keep operation costs down. In doing this the value of the currency over time should rise and make a ton of people wealthy! Not just the founders and early adopters but every day users of the platform and currency! That is the design goals anyway. This is not a statement of fact or guarantee of any kind just an ideal outcome in a perfect world.

If we take Stish back to an ads based revenue model and then use any remaining profits after operating costs to buy Stish off the market there is a major incentive for each member to grow the platform. The more ad revenue generated the better. The better the content the better the traffic and the more ad revenue. This will also help with policing the platform. Bad content will get flagged and removed as good content creators will only want the best created to increase ad revenue. The formula and math is quite simple with this method. Let’s look at the numbers and formulas that Stish will use to change the cryptocurrency landscape.

Here are the buzzwords or values needed to determine the metrics properly.

  • User Acquisition Cost
  • User Annual Value
  • Average Annual User Cost
  • Total Supply Of Stish
  • Total Circulation of Stish
  • Total Number Of Users
  • Total Ad Revenue $ Generated
  • Total Operating Costs
  • Platform Value

The platform value is the value of all users in total minus the total operating costs. This can be calculated monthly and quarterly and annually to track growth health of the platform. I think these numbers all should be made public and be accurately kept. If each user has a value of $1 per month of generate ad revenue on average and we have 10,000 Users then our monthly Platform Value would be $10,000 minus operating costs. Easy enough I think.

The user annual value would be the ad revenue generate on average per user for a given month and then multiplied by 12 to give us a yearly average value per user. So if again the average value of all users was $1 each in ad revenue then the Annual average user value would be $12 and this is important because the typical user acquisition cost should never exceed this amount and ideally should be as close to the monthly user annual value as possible.

User acquisition cost is the amount that it takes to acquire a new customer/user/member. Users in this case are active members of the community. There are users that could simply be viewing content and creating ad revenue that are not actually users in the sense of actually receiving Stish crypto. These users are viewing only users and do become valuable at a certain threshold to add significant value to the platform. In our use case we look at contributing members of the community and receivers of Stish crypto.

The total minted supply is constant at 100,000,000 Stish

The total circulation is important as this would be the maximum amount that could be sold at any given time. For instance if 100,000 Stish had been issued to users and early adopters then 100,000 Stish could be sold. Total circulation is important for the ad revenue sharing model we propose. With the sharing model Stish is constantly being bought with ad revenue profits which helps keep markets liquid. It can also determine the future value of Stish as revenues increase and supplies decrease sell orders values could increase as the ad revenue profits could be averaged to help determine the lowest buy price.

For instance if we generate $2000 in ad revenue one month thanks to users who created content and users who viewed content and ads and We distributed 10,000 Stish. If all 10,000 Stish were to be put on the market and we spent all $2000 to buy the Stish or make the market then the lowest price Stish would likely sell for would be 0.20 or potentially we could buy up any Stish at this price to make the market and hold the price threshold. So each member would have incentive to create the best content possible, to increase users via sharing of the platform and content and police the community by reporting bad actors. There would also be a huge incentive to hold the Stish and thus increase the market making pool.

If the market making pool that is funded from ad revenues increases and Stish circulation decreases there is a greater potential for a higher lower threshold. We can look at the same example above. If no Stish needed to be purchased as there were no sell orders needing to be made and we Still had the $2000 from the first month and the second month adds the same or additional ad revenue due to growth but total stish circulation doesn’t always increase the same due to non member ad revenues. So Maybe membership and Stish distribution was only half as much as the first month. So 15,000 Total Stish is in circulation but ad revenue is $4000 total. The value that users created for the platform has increased. The bottom buy threshold that we could place would be at 0.26 cents now versus .20 from earlier. We arrive at this number because we have $4000 available from ?ad revenue for market making. 4000 / 15000 = 0.26 which could change dramatically from month to month.

Using an advertising generated sharing value model to help support the lowest threshold of the currency has many useful benefits from added liquidity in the markets to helpful assistance with baselining bottom thresholds. It also incentivizes a natural growth and progression of the platform and allows the platform to operate like a normal business while growing and supporting its members that make it possible. It truly does return the value of the social networking website back to the members who can choose to dump their Stish to show anger for a bad development decision or hold their Stish awaiting higher values in the free markets. This model has advantages for traders and investors also as it gives metrics that they are accustomed to looking at for traditional trading and can add some platform stability into Stish pricing decisions. Stish is not a stock of the company but the actual value of each members efforts which has never been done and never could be done until cryptocurrency technology was developed.

Stish It provides the ability to turn your time and creativity into Cryptocurrency that can be a store of value or traded on exchanges for other currency and even fiat or government backed currencies. For the first time you actually control your own social media value not some troll in a distant land. For the first time you have access to sell that value as needed and as the market allows for that value to be sold instead of just making a few social media founders multi billionaires. You built the large social media platforms through your content and participation and now they use their money and power to shut down free speech and bully people they disagree with from all walks of life. NOT ANYMORE… Tell those guys to Stish It!

The Tinkerman is Back, Will He Produce Another Fairy tale Run? Not this Season I Suppose.

Claudio Ranieri road to stardom did not start at Leicester, He was one charged with the task of rebuilding an ageing Chelsea team. Little or nothing was known of him when he was brought in to Stamford bridge to replace Gianluca Vialli by the then chairman and owner Ken Bates, Ken Bates was tired of top 6 finishes, the onus fell on Ranieri to at least better top 6 finish and qualify Chelsea for the UCL. Bulk of Chelsea starters were ageing, among them were Ed De Goey (GK), Frank Leboeuf (CB), Marcel Desailly (DF), Gus Poyet (MF), Denis Wise (MF), Roberto Di Matteo (MF), Gianfranco Zola (FW)…

Ranieri and Chelsea team during an Asia tour (google image)

The Tinkerman as he is popularly known tried to live up to his alias, tinkered with his Chelsea team and finally in his 3rd season 2002/03 qualified Chelsea for the UCL after finishing 4th on EPL log table behind Manchester United, Arsenal and Newcastle United, a tournament that have eluded Chelsea for a very long time. Qualifying for the UCL herald a new beginning in the history of Chelsea as the club was bought by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. It was Abramovich that saw off Ranieri to the exit door a season later, as his Abramovich quest for silverware intensified. Ranieri 4 seasons stint with Chelsea could not bring silverware , but he helped laid the foundation for the successes that followed, it was the core of the players such as John Terry, William Gallas, Claude Makelele, Sebastian Veron, Emmanuel Petit, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole etc either nurtured and/or bought by Ranieri that brought silverware for Mourinho, his successor.

Ranieri lifting the EPL trouphy with Leicester (google image)

Fast forward to more than a decade later, the Tinkerman was back this time, to Leicester. He was brought in at the start of 2015/16 to steady the ship of a team that narrowly escaped relegation. What ensued afterwards was a fairytale, a dream that became real, it was one of the most unlikely triumph in the history of football. Leicester against all odds beat the likes of Arsenalfc, Tottenham, and Manchester City to win the EPL. Leicester team was dubbed “The Unbelievables” replicating Arsenals “The Invisibles” alias. The Tinkerman achieved this feat with little known players such as Ngolo Kante, Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, Robert Huth, Kasper Schmeichel among others. The fairytale run ended the following season though, despite guiding the team to a maiden UCL quarter final exit another fantastic achievement for a UCL new comer, a run of poor result in domestic league saw Ranieri sacked. Ranieri will never be forgotten in the heart of fateful fans of the foxes.

It is barely 22 months since his EPL exit and he is back. This time with Fulham, a struggling London club which sit rock bottom with just 5 points in 12 EPL matches. Fulham has conceded 31 league goals with a poor return of just 11 scored. Will the Tinkerman pull another fairytale run, highly unlikely from where Fulham is sitting on EPL table, but who knows what next season holds.

One thing is certain, Ranieri never leaves without leaving a mark behind

I leave you with some of Ranieri’s funny session with the press during Leicester fairytale run in 2015/16. (skysports source)

Monaco Manager Thierry Henry

Thierry Henry’s Nightmare Continues, Somebody Please Wake Him Up.

In his playing days, he was mecurial and prolific, he was know for different alias across footballing communities, in Nigeria he was unanimously known irrespective of club supported as “Igwe” which means “King”. Yea! Thierry Henry was that good and prolific for both club and country.

However, his playing days has long gone and the 41 years old Frenchman has since moved on to next chapter of his career, coaching! He was assistant coach to the Belgian national team coach Roberto Martinez, before he was recently named as Monaco manager on the 13th Oct, 2018 after former coach Leonardo Jardim was sacked for a run of poor results.

This is Henry 1st big test as a manager, and boy what a heck of a test it is turning out to be for him. Under Jardim, Monaco had won only 1 match in 10 in all competitions and are languishing in 18th position of Ligue 1 log table. Henry knew what he was walking into, he was inheriting a team who was a shadow of the team it was some 19 months ago when it against all odds won the Ligue 1.

Henry knew it was not gonna be easy but he certainly did not know it is gonna be this tough. Reminds me of one of my favourite Coldplay track ‘the scientist’, down the lyrics it says “…Nobody said it was easy, No one ever said it would be this hard, Oh take me back to the start…”.

UCL Group A standing ( BBCSports News )

Tuesday night UCL match defeat at the hands of Club Brugge of Belgium was 5th match without a win in all competitions for Henry and his Monaco, a result that ultimately saw Monaco exited UCL as they sit rock button of the group A. Again, Sunday night 4-0 thrashing at home at the hands of PSG now makes it 4 loses and 2 draws for Henry and Monaco in all competitions. Monaco now sit 19th place on Ligue 1 log table.

Has Henry jumped the gun to soon, i love Henry but i personally think Henry is not ready for such a big task, he could have remained with R. Matinez for atleast year more, pick up one or two pointers from him, but it is what it is.

Monaco’s last 6 matches under Henry ( Fctables news)

Henry had prior to his appointment as Monaco manager said it was fate that brought him to the club it all started for him as a footballer, it could be recalled that Henry stated his playing career right there in Monaco, well, i hope that same fate won’t lead Henry to the exit door as quickly as he came in. We have heard so many times that accomplished footballers does not necessarily mean accomplished Manager, it is probably to early to call though but Henry has to turn around the fortune of Monoca and fast, because patience is a rare word in club owner’s book nowadays.

Keep the fight Henry, remember …

Stish Is Celebrating Big News To Wrap The Year Up!

With every new endeavor there will be hurdles and challenges.

If the road was super easy then everyone would be doing it and there would be no reason for us to try. The social portal has had its ups and downs with performance. Numerous bug conflicts have been found and discovered and remedied recently to speed up the platform overall and we are seeing our fastest speeds ever. With great ideas like Stish there will be bad actors that seek to attack it constantly. I’m not talking about speaking badly about the platform that is inevitable, I’m talking about constant brute force attacks and ddos computer attacks and various attempts to simply overwhelm our servers and bring us down. In 2018 we successfully defended near daily attacks and only crashed 1 day though we have had performance issues as a direct result to constant senseless traffic attacks. Stish pushes forward even after several blunders with domain naming and branding early on and the relaunch of the Stish cryptocurrency.

The Year Can Be Measure A Success!

Overall the year can be measured as a success. We finally got branding under control and have built numerous graphics. There is still room on the canva dev team for those wanting to churn out more graphics. The message has been drastically refined from a complex intertwined crypto system that was heavily tied to another crypto and brand to begin to define its own. In a nutshell Stish It is a distribution mechanism for the cryptocurrency Stish. User can create different types of content or interaction and ultimately receive Stish for their efforts. Stish can be traded on multiple exchanges and can be handled as a store of value token. We are so close to finishing development that a token event is likely not really needed. Being the founder I can easily finish self funding the development next year and simply deliver free of charge a robust platform for people to use. Over time as the Stish circulation and holders increase and trading prices increase we can slowly release some crypto into the markets to cover future operating costs and recoup some costs over time and provide still people with trading ground floor opportunities.

2019 will be a significant year. I think it will show people that I personally am invested in the project for the long haul and look to continuous improvement and development. With the launch of light Stish wallets within the platform and a semi automated Stish credits to Stish crypto exchange happening I think that will allow us much more scalability. Simplicity is key and some seam to think social media is dead or dying overall and so is blogging and connecting. The only areas of growth or in uber niche communities such as Stish It where people are passionate about cryptocurrency and the future of crypto. We hope that as we continue to grow and develop that people will see the store of value potential that Stish has and the circulation capabilities we have through the PEE theory of distribution.

2019 will bring about Stish being listed again on the Saturn Network exchange and likely a few other exchanges that have the interested of traders  in mind. was awesome and the Saturn group has already launched ETC trading on the Saturn Network and it is the easiest trading platform that has been invented yet in my opinion. New people to crypto will feel less intimidated and should enjoy their trading experience. We are invested into the Saturn Network and do look forward to their future growth along with our own. ETH trading pairs which will allow Stish listing again should be available by 2019. We will start sending air drop requests once we are listed again and really increase early adopter circulation.

Let’s Close 2018 With A Bang!

For everyone who has been waiting all year for the double Stish bonuses your time has come. We talked about doing some double rewards and we did this in 2017 also when we first started to get some people’s attention. We hope it has the same effect as last time and will encourage people to share with their friends and family and strangers and increase growth of the platform. Stish Credits for blog posts will double until the end of the year and daily caps will stay the same. Comment rewards have also been significantly increased until 2019! We know that comments are really the lifeblood of any successful community. People work hard to create content and many friendships are born when users share sincere comments about the content.

Thanks for a great year even though we had some ups and downs!


We Still Look To Give Away 1 Million Stish which is 1% of total Minting to all early adopters. You have To Sign Up!

Waiting on a raincloud.png

I wrote ‘Waiting on a Raincloud one bright spring morning back in March/April, whilst eating breakfast!
As I looked out onto the garden, I saw birds feeding, bees flying and plants growing!
Here in England six weeks prior to this, it was a bitter -5c and bitterly cold.
This song is to remind us all of how beautiful nature and our planet really is.


I’m waiting on a rain cloud
And a sunny afternoon
Everyone is over friendly
Cos they put you in the mood

Warm sun strokes my skin
Which gives me, oh! an awesome glow
Children playing on the parks
The innocence we all once knew

I’m loving nature’s bounty
And the wonders that it grows
Reflecting on the winters
And the icy freezing cold

But we were warm inside our homes
And didn’t really want
To go outside for very long
It’s buried under snow

Under snow oh oh
And nature’s bounty
Was buried under snow

I’m waiting on a rain cloud
And a sunny afternoon
Everyone is over friendly
Cos they put you in the mood

Little words in my mouth
Keeping them locked away not falling out
Little thoughts in my head
Keeping them all locked away until I’m safe in bed

Three words falling
Always stalling
Inside feelings

Little times that we have
keeping them locked away for us and them
little world spinning round
gravity pulling everybody down

Onward stalling
Inside feelings

Find Your Self Buying Stish

Stish Token Event Participation Just Got Easier.

How Easy Is The Stish Token Event?

There has never been an easier way to participate in a token event ever! The best thing about the Stish Token Event is how easy it is to be a part of it all. We are building an amazing community platform around the cryptocurrency Stish. Community members get Stish rewards when they do things that benefit the total community such as creating blog posts and micro-blog posts. There is a whole list of awesome ways to earn Stish rewards.

The development of the community is nearing completion which is great news for you.

Most token ICO’s or token events just have some thoughts or ideas floating around. Very few of them ever even develop any working prototypes or are able to actually launch a platform to solve the problems they talk about. and Stish crypto are different. You can actually join the community and be a part of the cryptocurrency revolution before you help fund the development. For the first time in history you can help control the direction of the social network that is being built. Isn’t that amazing news? We thought it was really awesome to have FREE SPEECH and Cryptocurrency interconnected into a social media platform.

With most ICO’s the risks are very high as there is year development generally speaking.  With Stish and we are nearing completion of the social networking platform that will allow all the Stish cryptocurrency supporters a super great place to relax and discuss crypto and whatever else that come to mind.

Stish will soon be wrapping up the Stish Wallets which will allow everyday internet users the opportunity to experience crypto possibly for the first time. This will also help us ease into automation of the rewards system. No more oops about adding a bad wallet address to your profile!

What are some Challenges that and Stish face that we need help overcoming?

With the platform being nearly finished and self funded up until this point many often ask,” How will you use the funding?” The challenge at this stage of the game is funding for Stish distribution initially to massive amounts of users. We have self funded an enormous amount of currency distribution but as we scale up membership and distribution we will become cash strapped and be unable to meet the demand for Stish distribution via rewards.

The second challenge that we naively learned about was that listing a currency on large centralized exchanges with plenty of liquidity isn’t cheap. We are looking at realistically at minimum $100,000 USD in funding for just 2 major exchanges with API services so that we can integrate Stish cryptocurrency into not only this platform but other platforms much easier in the future reducing development costs drastically for future projects using Stish. Cryptopia for instance has a listing fee of $45,000 USD plus market maker fees and essential liquidity guarantees. This was one of the lower costs high producing centralized exchanges we looked into. Other platform have a far greater buy in fee.

Most successful ICO projects typically spend between 50,000 and $300,000 USD in marketing to raise million of development and operation dollars. We have been a grassroots project and spent less than $1000 USD so far in marketing. Most of this was to have users actively testing our Beta versions of different features of the platform. We will need more funding to successfully launch a token event. Doing so will not be a challenge and we have been speaking with different companies and examining many different offerings in regards to which avenues have yielded the highest ROI. We will likely invest enough funding for an analysis of our user acquisition costs and how many users do we need to acquire before we see Stish Token sales. Which we already have some data on this so far but a further marketing study would be needed so that we could allocated funds as judiciously as possible.


What Is The Main Concept People Are Buying?

The concept appears simple to me. In a nutshell people create full blog posts, or share short content posts (microblogging) and create comments etc and receive Stish Credits for their efforts in building the community around the currency Stish. We will soon Automate the exchange of Stish Credits to Stish crypto once the Stish Wallets are ready so that all members will receive a Stish Hot Wallet a.k.a Stish Light Wallet.  We could run payouts monthly or weekly in Stish Cryptocurrency. Some development is still needed for complete automation. Once complete the ease of use of Cryptocurrency for tipping other content creators is kind of cool.

More importantly, being rewarded in crypto for building a social network verses all of the value of the company going to the CEO or Shareholders is a dramatic redistribution of the normal flow of economic incentive. For all of the large social media companies that exist today the founders and a few of their friends who sit on the board typically rake in all of the profits along with a few shareholders for all of the user’s hard work. Most people don’t even think about it but each one of these large corporate social media companies only see you and your content as a $ sign! With Stishit each member is not being given Stock or dividends but they own their content and the value which that content has.

Different content types have different values pre-defined that can vary in rewards to be received upon completion. (see a full equitable list of tasks rewards here. ) Some platforms have these rewards based on how much of the currency you already possess. Some award these dependant on the community vote which is also determined by how much currency the person voting possesses. Neither of these are very fair models. . Much like the lottery or casino. Average folks rarely win the jackpot as you would need to wager larger amounts of funds to have a real ROI or buy large amounts of tickets to increase your odds. Average people generally can do neither so that have lower odds of actually winning.

Many of the unfair rewards models are like paying 2 different prices for groceries depending on how much money you have. For example: If you bought a loaf of bread but already had 10, well you get a better price for the loaf of bread. If you are new to buying bread then you pay more for the loaf of bread. If you make less money the loaf of bread is double than if you make more money. This will essentially take the wealth from the poor and transfer it to the rich over time. It is a slick yet deceiving financial model where the poor get poorer and the wealthy get wealthier. The whole social media rewards concept was developed to help distribute the wealth of the social network back to those that created the value to begin with!

Stish and Stishit solve this with equitable rewards. Each person can create value and receive a predetermined amount for that effort. Since most of the Stish holders will likely be members of the community there will be a natural tendency to not do anything to jeopardize the value of the currency or the platform. People will want to talk about the benefits of the community and make positive trades for the betterment of the whole community. The actual value of each individuals contribution is thusly defined by their own perceived value of their efforts and the price they are willing to trade their Stish currency for. If people value their time and effort cheaply they might list their Stish for sale at a low price while other who contribute might value their time and effort more highly and list their Stish for sale at a higher price.  This is where there can be traders waiting in between to provide liquidity and drive pricing up for their own benefit naturally as we all would love to see ourselves rewarded  well for our efforts.

As a store of value time will determine what that natural value will tend to be based on analytics and metrics. Will growth of the platform play  a part? Will the increase in short posts or long posts be considered? Will lowering the amount of rewards issued per task over time cause scarcity in the markets causing a pricing boom? Time will answer all of these unknown questions. I hope to see you there at the finish line with me and hopefully standing there in awe of what a community that is passionate about a cryptocurrency can do together.

First Blood Inter, 2018/2019 Serie A Season’s First Derby Della Madonnina Ends With Yet Another Captain Icardi Late goal.




Derby Della Madonnina or Derby Di Milano or simply put Milan Derby is an Italia Serie A football match between two city of Milan rival clubs of AC Milan and Inter Milan. A rivalry that started right from when Inter Milan was formed.

AC Milan was founded in the year 1899, and just after the turn of the century, there was a disagreement within the board of the club on the number of foreign players to play for AC Milan, thus Inter Milan was formed by some break-away AC Milan board members in the year 1908, thus giving birth to a rivalry that last forever. The rivalry already kicked into motion even before the first ball was kicked.

The Milan derby has featured so many classic matches from time past, so 2018/2019 season first Serie A fixture was expected to be explosive, it was a match played at the Giuseppe Meazza know as the San Siro football stadium, it was a match that the Nerazzurri as Inter Milan are popularly known largely dominated, the Rossoneri as AC Milan are popularly called were happy to seat back and soak the pressure from their rival and break away on the counter attack. The scoreline was 0 – 0 going into the break, and the scoreline suggest, it was a fairly even contest. The 3 major talking point for the half was an injury to Inter’s Radja Nainggolan at the half hour mark 30′, 2 correct offside calls, one from either sides, Icardi for Inter and Musacchio for Milan the culprits.

here is the goal highlight for those that missed the match:

Second half was going much the way of first half until the 90th minutes when AC Milan goalkeeper was found in a noman”s land, and Inter’s captain M. Icardi made him paid, 1 nil to Inter, and with few minutes left, AC Milan undone by another Icardi late goal just like last season

here are the two (2) highlights of 2017/2018 season Derby Di Milano that saw Inter Milan won 4 points over two(2) legs off their rivals AC Milan:

1st fixture 2017/2018:
reverse fixture 2017/2018:

After seeing AC Milan salvage a late late equalizer by Christian Zapata, Inter were a team on a mission for the reversed fixture, and like the 1st fixture, there was another late drama as Mario Icardi completed his hat trick with another late but controversial penalty to win it for Inter with the scoreline at 2 – 2. AC Milan’s goal were scored by Joaquin Suso and an own goal from Inter’s Samir Handanovic.

With Inter drawing the first blood this season, it will be interesting what response AC Milan will give on the reverse fixture.

Adidas & Puma are amongst world giant sport wear companies, not until recently, i never knew they were siblings, and i am sure there are others like me that are in the dark.

The Dassler brothers Rudolf ‘Rudi’ (the eldest) and Adolf ‘Adi’ (younger) are the co-founder of DASSLER BROTHERS SPORT SHOE COMPANY as far back as the 1920s, in the Bavarian town of Herzogenaurach, Germany.

Dassler logo & Shoe back in the days…

Adolf ‘Adi, Dassler was the introvert, a crafty designer that designs and made the shoes, while the older brother Rudolf ‘Rudi’ Dassler was more of an outspoken salesman that was responsible for the sales of the the shoes.

In 1936 Berlin Olympics, American athlete Jesse Owens wore the Dassler brother’s shoe, Owens won four (4) gold medals and thus the brother’s shoe became popular.

American athlete Jesse Owen…

Come with the fame is heated tension between the brothers, soon after, their relationship went south. Several reasons were rumored to be the cause of the conflict, the bottom line was that the conflict ended the brothers partnership, after world war two(2), the brothers split the company assets and employees thus ended Dassler Brother Sport Shoe Company.

In 1949 , Adolf ‘Adi’ Dassler coined his trademark name “ADIDAS” from is nickname ‘Adi’ and his last name ‘Das’-sler

Adidas logos from time past til date…

while his older brother Rudolf ‘Rudi’ Dassler named his brand initially “RUDA” from his first name ‘Ru’-dolf and last name ‘Da’-ssler, then changed it to “PUMA”, which is more suited to the fast and agile nature of athletes.

Puma logos then and now…

The brothers even built their factories on opposite side of a certain river Aurach right there in Herzogenaurach.

Years after years of lawsuit and counter lawsuit against each other on all sort of designs and trademarks issues that must have cost fortunes went by.

This feud even precipitated down to the local communities, to the extent that local people picked sides, you are either for Adidas or against it, either for Puma or against it. Love affairs between employees across either company were forbidden,the rivalry was so bitter that the town of Herzogenaurach was known as “the town of bent necks”, simply because local people had to first looked and checked out the company’s shoes you wear before associating with you.

Rubbing into Puma’s face was the fact that they had to do catch-up with Adidas, no surprise, because Adidas had all the technical guys to his side during separation.

Rudolf ‘Rudi’ Dassler died in October 1974 (age 76) and within four (4) years of his death, his younger brother Adolf ‘Adi’ Dassler died, in September of 1978 (aged 77).

Both were buried at opposite ends of the same graveyard in Herzogenaurach far away from each other as possible.

However, in 2009, employees of both Adidas and Puma came together to call a truce to end six (6) decade of acrimony between them by organizing and playing a benevolent soccer match. An honorable move by both companies employees i say.

peace match between Adidas and Puma staffs…

Thank goodness there are so many other sport wear companies this day, we get to pick according to taste and not sentiment.

blank Takes Social Media Rewards To A Whole New Level!

Stish is a powerful fun social network.

We often refer to it as a micro crypto economy because of the equitable rewards distribution people receive for being involved in the community. Much like a real world town or village everyone has a role to play in making the community a better place. Some people add comments to posts to encourage blog writers or to start a conversation about an interesting topic. Both the person writing the comment and the author receive an equitable reward. Some share memes and interesting photos with the community. Some write full blog articles with the given tools while others use limited markdown to style up a post in the Social Portal. Other create short content called microblogging and try to earn bonus rewards by inspiring their friends and fellow Stishitians to get their Stish on.

Stish It means to publish it, to create it, to write it, to share it.

Stish It means to be involved with the community but to also enjoy life and relax. So many of us made large social media platforms what they are today to only find out they don’t really want our voices heard. They are guilty of secretly shadow banning various groups of people. Social media websites have been found to block and censor content created by people for the strangest reasons. Stishit will remove illegal content and will work to create a friendly environment. We certainly do not want the trolls that spam and exist to agitate people. We can ban people if the community at large deems it appropriate but we would rather all voices exercise their right to freedom of speech on Stishit. is a platform that revolves around a hybrid development model. Part of the platform is built like most other websites with an off chain build. This helps us stay compliant with applicable laws and in a small way moderate the platform to comply with standard business practices. The crypto currency is an onchain development and much of the interactions with it are on chain. This hybrid on chain/off chain build makes Stish one of the best social media rewards platforms online today. Stish crypto currency is immutable and runs on the Ethereum blockchain for enhanced security. This allows Stish crypto currency to be easily trade-able on exchanges. Currently traded on Other exchanges possibly coming soon. Breaks New Wallet Ground!

Stishit Wallets Currency Amounts List

We of course have developed Stish the coolest most epic crypto currency on the planet right now! Soon we will launch an Epic Token event with the new Stish2.0 token to add Stish to the easiest user interface for Crypto Currencies ever! We have some spectacular developments underway and some being released right now!

The biggest news in social media rewards based platforms is the Stish It Wallets and how they work. Many people have said, “Crypto has been around for a while now. This internet money should have taken off by now.” In some parts of the world it truly has exploded. In some countries governments and regulation or non-regulation has impacted  the adoption rates.

When Stish was being developed we really wanted to reduce the barriers to entry into crypto currency usage. One of those barriers is being tore down with multi crypto currency wallets. The old system would require users to visit multiple different websites and download software files which often came with some suspicious warnings to create cryptographic wallet addresses and private and public active keys. Often there were a ton of other industry related jargon thrown in the mix to confuse the heck out of people who wanted to learn more about a crypto currency and start using it. This new digital money had and still has in most cases a steep learning curve.

Stish Breaks Down Major Barriers Of Entry For People Wanting To Begin Using Crypto Currencies!

Now all members who join will receive crypto wallets absolutely free! Members will be able to buy crypto currency from websites such as changelly or coinbase and then deposit those funds into the appropriate Stish It wallet address. Members will be able to send crypto currency to other members by simply entering their username. They will not have to worry with keys and complicated terminology that is often confusing. They will easily see their wallet addresses which are like bank account numbers so that they can send and receive funds. Members could even add their addresses to their Social Portal profiles also if they like. For writers who are building a following and rely on support from their followers this is another way they can get support.

We have proven we can accomplish a great task here. We would like to have Stish our crypto currency handled in the same way. The challenge we face is that the exchange we would like to add Stish to requires a 50,000 USD deposit in their digital token. It also requires we put up the transaction fees in advance. Stish does have minor transaction fees as it is a mined crypto currency and miners must get paid to confirm the transactions. In order for us to allow the sending and receiving of Stish this easily we need to raise some capital. It really is a small amount in the crypto space and our token event page is coming together.


The next plan also would be to allow the exchange of Stish with other currency directly on which we will release this upon completion of the listing of our Stish crypto currency. Stish being listed will be huge. Stish credits are currently awarded for community actions. These credits can be converted to Stish crypto and then held, spent, sent or traded. The future of Stish crypto is very bright and we would love to see you be a part of the ongoing development of the platform. Allowing people to not only use Stish but interact with other popular crypto currencies from a social networking website has never been done before now! People can connect and share knowledge and ideas plus get involved in earning some crypto while sending and receiving crypto currency very easily. does charge nominal transfer fees for off platform sends and we think these very small amounts from lots of people can help add to the bottom line and fuel community growth. With people coming for the awesome social portal and equitable rewards based on the PEE theory and then also learning and trading/sending through our platform! The future has never been brighter than it is today.

We look forward to having a successful Token Event Soon And Taking Stish To The Next Level Of Trading and Interactions. We are working on some very awesome features and ways to interact with the platform along with a marketplace type feature and the ability for users to create their own retail store fronts and pages which will be able to accept Stish or fiat for payments.

Several Hundred People Woke Up To Bonus Stish Crypto

In our original white paper we laid out a plan that gave us 6 months to raise funding and complete some development milestones. We asked the community to be active and grow the micro crypto economy. We announced a solid plan for early adopters and people we considered honorary founders for their actions in promoting the community. Many took it upon themselves to launch or start growing a base on other social networks such as our Telegram and Discord channels.  Many others have helped with youtube, facebook, twitter, bitcoin talk and reddit 

The Amazing Community Support and Welcoming Of The Members Of The Micro Crypto Economy On Is Priceless!

August 2018, was the time in which we promised to distribute founders and early adopters Stish crypto currency. With that time of the year upon us we are happy to announce that we distributed 900,000 Stish. Now each early adopter and founder have even more incentive to promote the platform and community. The currency will only be as strong as the community and those trading the currency Stish.

Many people have messaged me surprised at receiving so much Stish crypto!

The difficulty of growing a social network and community online is beyond imagination. People’s time is valuable and to get a fledgling startup like off the ground takes hundreds of people getting the word out. One thing about that can help move people is the strong stance we have on freedom of Speech. We have people who consider themselves to be both liberal and conservative on the platform. Often I have seen friendly discussions about some weird random topics and some super serious discussions about life.

When people have the freedom to express themselves and build a social network around that, whether others agree or disagree, is epic in today’s social media climate. is committed to freedom of speech and will not suppress content. We do have laws to abide by and the community can vote to decide that a post should be removed but the platform will not make unilateral decisions to censor content accept where it violates the law. We do have a family platform and request that users not publish nude or pornographic material in our terms of use. We really do not wish to ever become moral police or promote one groups agenda over another. is a concept community showing the potential for a crypto currency rewards based micro crypto economy that we hope to one day compete with websites that were born because of the freedoms they now try to destroy!


Early Adopters Received 2000 Stish Crypto For Being The first 1000 Members to join!

Never before has social media rewarded people with a crypto currency in this way.  Stish crypto can be traded on the decentralized exchange that protects peoples trades through a special erc223 contract. It is so much fun trading crypto this way and we have seen an above average trading price on the exchange thus far. With limited amount of trading volume the average price of the crypto has not been established yet through website such as coin market cap. The founders expect to see Stish listed in 2019 as we continue to make technological advancements and raise more funding through our TOKEN EVENT COMING SOON!

Thank you all for helping grow a micro crypto economy around the Stish currency. May all of your days be blessed!

Am I too late to give suggestions for rebranding?

I hope not . . . bc here I go> as a NEWBIE on STISHit

A perspective as a new person.

I came to STISHit through someone who landed on my post who was on automatic black list and was blocked out on Steemit. Did I mention this was my post! Needless to say, this was a trigger and made me very angry because when I was new a group of whales flagged me. Instead of doing what most people did I stood up to them and got in further trouble. Any sane person would of given up or retreated > but . . . I didn’t.

OiyVey > Why all this verbage? . . .

It’s because I came here from someone who didn’t deserve

to be treated this way on Steemit (Retired in Samar.)

At first thought this was a place for discouraged, bullied and displaced Steemians, yet, when I came here it was different and I too was befuddled.

First, I thought STISHit was a scam, a joke and it was confusing . . . the name, didn’t help. What made me stay was > I didn’t have to use my Steemit keys and people seemed genuine on STISHit. The only problem is you need to REBRAND your id with what it will do for Steemians, the World, Family Friends and Co-Workers. You have to keep it simple as possible.

How much is STISH? How can they get money from content (words, pictures, art and video) that is theirs. Delegate more tutorial from Stishians and let them know they get paid for these tutorials. Let them know there’s a community here to support bloggers and on and on.

My friend won’t . . . NO … refuses to check this place out because he thinks it is a phishing scam. He is a blogger who uses his own work/orignal and a content person. Someone who comments and would be succesful on STISHit. Enjar believes the Steemian whales who put the fear in Steemians.

Oh my, the whale who came on my post was a whale bot. It came here in February 2018 and makes an average of $80.00 a day for automaticaly going after minnows. “Eat minnows and get paid for it.”


This is a friend I invited to Steemit a year ago.


Problems I see > a url that is different from STISHit’s name. If you are a 3rd party to Steemit why doesn’t it show up on Steemit’s posts? STISH needs to be seen and then the it, let people figure out later the name has a cuss word in it. Repeat STISH as many times as possible. STISH is money/cryptocurrency that is paid to bloggers. Stishians is a community that supports one another and has 0% tolerance for scammers, thieves of intellual property and bullies. An outline would be helpful for the video, audio and visual artists. Blah, blah, blaaaah … you can go on.

A gambit of questions pop up in the new person’s mental hopper. I can’t answer them but . . . I’m sure the ones that have been on STISHit a long time could.


I created these gifs on


Give credit to me on STISHit and use them/spread the word.

STISHit has a lot to offer the creative person.


Introducing STISH and Stishit!



Here is my most recent contribution to Stishit (submitted for publishing).

What is STISH?
According to the Urban Dictionary, Stish is defined as “chill.” STISH on the other hand is a “cryptographic currency,” or cryptocurrency for short. It is a form of currency that only exists digitally (like Bitcoin), that usually has no central issuing or regulating authority, like a bank.

Cryptocurrency uses this decentralized “blockchain” system to record transactions and manage the issuance of new units. The “cryptography” of it all is to simply prevent counterfeiting and fraudulent transactions. Cryptocurrencies use blockchains to order and validate transactions. Blockchains are a natural fit and the best (and perhaps only) way to maintain a consensus about the state of a record among a decentralized, trustless network. In summary, posting to the blockchain it is like writing a check from your checkbook, and having multiple accountants verify your math and your checkbook balance for accuracy.

How Is Cryptocurrency Valued?
A Cryptocurrency has value because people think it has value. Just like fiat currency, people believe that it has value therefore it does. Is it backed by any physical asset? Nope. Just like fiat currency is no longer backed by gold. While there might be several factors that determine the value of cryptocurrency, the most important is utility and supply and demand. Some cryptocurrencies like STISH are also valued based upon a proof of work (POW) system whereby it takes work to create the currency, therefore it has value.

Stishit is a social media platform where members earn rewards that easily convert to the digital cryptocurrency STISH. Because many people are now getting involved with cryptocurrency for the first time, we created an entry-level platform that makes learning about cryptocurrencies easy.

Do you like Facebook but hate that you are doing all the work and they get all the profits? Is Twitter or Snapchat your go to app but you feel like it is missing something? Are you posting on Instagram and building a massive following but think to yourself, “Wow, I take all of the pictures and do all of the work and these guys get all of the money!” If you think that it just doesn’t seem fair, you are not alone. Have you ever thought that perhaps maybe they could all share the wealth with their content creators that make their platforms so great! Don’t count on it.

On Stishit, members essentially do the same things as they would on any other social media platform and they are rewarded with a digital token that can be exchanged for #stish. It can be exchanged for cash or traded for the cryptocurrency of their choice, even Bitcoin. Thousands of people have already joined our new and innovative community and are already earning!

The way we see it, Social media shouldn’t take up your valuable time without some reward. Earn it, Buy It, Trade It. Live the Stishit social way where people chill and enjoy life. STISH is Cryptocurrency made easy by Stishit. Get your STISH today!

What Is Stishit And How Can I Win By Using It

The most asked question that people ask is, “What is Stishit?” This is usually followed up with, “How Can I Win By Using It?” or “How Do I Use Stishit?”

First, let’s be clear, we are in beta and have been testing a few concepts. Our main mission and goal from the beginning was and is to “HELP PEOPLE GROW!” We are pruning the website and some features to help everyone stay focused on this. When people join Stishit we want it to be clear what we offer and how people can easily get involved.

One Way We Help People Grow.

Stishit is a social community with its own rewards based points system. People that post or engage in the community social portal with comments and posts earn Stish Credits. These points can be traded for Stish a cryptocurrency also in beta developed for the community. Stish is an Ethereum based cryptocurrency so it will work with many wallets and configurations such as My Ether Wallet, MetaMask, IMToken, and Coinomi to name a few. This website helps make it really easy to start a journey into cryptocurrency using our in house points system while people earn and interact in a crypto currency focused community. Buying cryptocurrency doesn’t have to be hard. We make it easy to get your first crypto currency called Stish.

I truly hope this helps you understand the basics of and what we are doing and how you can be a winner using Feel free to reach out to me in the community with questions. We are also on every major social platform to better serve members.


What Is The Current Price Of Stish?

With regards to the question, “How much is Stish worth and Stish Credits?” let me be 100% clear.

Stish Credits are like a points system. They have no cash value whatsoever. They are not redeemable for cash. You can buy them but they are not convertible to cash or a fiat $. They are used as a means to allow us to reward members for being active on the platform.

With that said Stish Credits are allowed to be exchanged for Stish the ERC-20 Ethereum Based Crypto Currency. The current rate of exchange is 2 Stish Credits Equals 1 Stish.

We are currently selling Stish pre-ico for $0.25 with a little over 900K left to be sold during the first round of sales. This is a very low price with no limits on the amount you have to buy. We did this to help our existing members be able to get in on the ground floor of a really special crypto. Generally really low priced buy-ins require a minimum purchase of 10,000 tokens or more.

Personally My Sale Price Will Be Around $25 USD for a limited amount of my Stish. The rest I will hodl until it goes as high as it possibly can go. I can’t predict the future and it might not get past $5 but that really depends on where people sell at and at what price point people are willing to buy.

Ideas Matter Stish

Stish is a new crypto currency and theory in beta that so far is having some success. We have at worst case a four year plan of development and distribution. I don’t think it will take this full time but we are planned for this just in case. A recent graphic that was in the side bar for a month illustrated how PEE would work. People Exert Effort to earn Stish and therefore they should not want to sell very cheap. However if scams are allowed then people will want to sell cheap as they have no skin in the game. Please always report scams or spam. 

Yes, I think the whole community can make this happen. Over time not over night. It is a long term idea and concept and over time does gain momentum with community growth and sharing. Education is a big part of it all too, because so many people are new to cryptocurrency. Prior to Stish there has not really been an easy way for people to get involved with cryptocurrency. These are big ideas and work on paper and so far are working on a very small scale. We are attempting to build a social media networking economy essentially. 

Why Do I Not See Stish On Coin Market Cap?

At some point our volume goes up and we get market cap rates and trading pricing indexes. Currently this is not available as we do not have much volume. Almost everyone who has bought it is planning to wait also until it explodes one day. That is their hope I think and is ours also. Doesn’t mean it will happen but we can all try to make it a reality. We will need 100,000 USD worth of trading volume daily to become listed on Coin Market Cap. This will require the recruitment or traders at some point. This is a later phase of development in my opinion as we do not want to see pump and dump schemes.  Stish can be traded on https://Saturn.Network if someone needed to change their position.

We want you to keep your SBD and Steem. We built something super unique that has the potential to reward members in more than one way.

Stish was developed as an ERC-20 Token built on the Ethereum BlockChain to allow Minnows To Build A Whale Pool Plus Help Develop the platform and future projects. Minnows can afford Stish and have the chance to get in on the ground floor of something very special…

When you purchase Stish we invest 50% into Steem and power up the whale pool. Currently we are working on 3 accounts to power up: @steemish , @steemlist and @stishityes. These 3 accounts were set up by to essentially serve as an escrow account and also the whale pool. They also help members get more support on their posts. Currently one post per day while we work hard to power up the whale pool.

Better than this people that purchase Stish own some Stish.

Stish is currently very affordable but has a lot of potential value. As the whale pool becomes powered up more and more people are going to want to join the community. We plan to charge a nominal membership fee in the future to reduce spammers but still support minnows. As we grow members will be able to grow faster also. We currently have several services that can be purchased with Stish. As we grow the demand for Stish should also grow.
