Here is the post for the Daily Leo Talk. In preparation for the upcoming Microblogging features, this is a good place to start conversations, posts charts, memes, trades, or anything else that comes to mind.

Let us boost our overall numbers by posting lots of comments throughout the day. Spread the word to get others involved.

It is a great way to stimulate engagement.

We can think of this as a Reddit type engagement thread. We are not dealing with long form content so topics of discussion can start off with a top line comment. We can fill in from there.

We are open 24/7/365.

Perfect. Looking good so far but the weekends continue to be slow. I was available the whole day yesterday and did so many comments all over the place. It was fun! 🤞

Have a nice day you all.

Oh, it works on HIVE as well. Thankfully it does not happen as often as it used to do. Do you remember the DRAMA Token that was created by @whatsup?

DRAMA Token used to be very popular and I received my fair share, not a thing to brag about for sure. The Token still pops up now and again.

My goal is at least ten comments a day, so I try to pitch in between assignments.

That is a good baseline to work from. If there were 100 people like you, we would be golden.

We are lucky to get 20 people with that time of commitment.

Given your hectic schedule that is a great goal! Just think if everyone on LEO Finance and other communities had the same goal everyday! That would have a really great effect in the marketing of HIVE!

This is a very interesting trend to follow. It shows how things actually have been tough for the average working person.

I couldn't understand the entire article properly, but from what I picked up the pay has dropped. What I don't get is that the only reason this is happening is that people earn more from staying home???

I hardly ever understand how the US works.

There is also an interactive chart where you can see how it is declining again after 2020 in different versions. You can see data for various demographics and job types.

Yea the wages of people have not really gone up as much. I think it was better under trump as you finally saw some wage increases. All you need to do is compare the pay executives for companies get compared to their workers to see the huge difference.

They're hiring here, but of the many job fairs, the constant seems to be nursing homes. At this point, I'd say it's way too early to expect people to risk it working in one of those places.

Same here . Except for IT workers everyone else is struggling.

The pandemic has put lot of people into poverty . Last 10-15 years of work towards bringing people out of poverty has been demolished in 1 year .

So I think I made my decision and I think I'll be using my monthly purchase for the CUB/BUSD pool. The generated CUB will go into my DEN/kingdom in the future. I will action it in a few hours.

Does anyone know if this will qualify for the future airdrop? Also how have the fees been recently?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

4

Fees are fine on BSC. They've actually been almost reasonable on ETH lately as well. As for qualifying for the airdrop, I've got to imagine that the Den CUB will count. Not sure on the farms simply because it may be difficult to calculate. Or not. I'm not a coder. I would think they'd have to count as well or they risk people moving out of them and trashing liquidity in the name of getting the airdrop but....I haven't heard anything one way or the other.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

2

I hope Den Cub counts.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I am pretty sure the Den would count and they plan on leaving the Den alone if people prefer to do things manually.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Even I noticed this. Getting comfortable paying a few cents on BSC.

The farms should not be complicated at all. It's already done. Give a look at:

It's a great tool but man it hurts to compare my holdings sometimes. Since my previous add, the prices of things have definitely taken a beating.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I definitely hear you and share your pain. I'm glad I'm not a panic seller as I would have lost a small fortune. Instead, hopefully like most, I'm adding to my positions daily.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

0

Yea I have no plans on selling since most of what I put in was what I earned here on Leo.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

0

I get the fact that the value is going down but....how can it be painful?!? This is literally why people get killed in these markets. Down is GOOD if you think this is something you'll own for the next 5 years. Seriously, you need to change your entire viewpoint on this stuff or you'll end up being one of the ones getting rekt by a bad dip.

If you're not going to sell this anytime soon than down is a positive. Not a negative. You can buy and get more for curation when it's lower. Period.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

0

Yeah it isnt difficult. They can figure out what is being held pretty easily.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Well Kevin shared the website to the holdings but it should be relatively easy for them to see how much CUB you have staked. I also just did my transfer and buy into the network. Besides a few UI issues in Cub Finance, it took me about 15 minutes or so to get everything moved in and staked.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

1

I hope having Cub in DEN qualifies me for the future airdrop. Right now, all I do is stack.

Been confused on whether to stake all my Leo or use some part to get some Cub. Either way, it's still a win, I guess.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

2

You should and I think its going to be free money. In fact, I wonder if non-harvested CUB would even count towards the airdrop and whether or not we will get a heads up on the snapshot.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Been confused on whether to stake all my Leo or use some part to get some Cub. Either way, it's still a win, I guess.

That is a challenge most find ourselves in. It is good that we keep getting this opportunities.

Keep growing both if you can. A 50/50 move is never a bad idea: stake 50% of LEO and move the other 50% to CUB.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

0

Yeah, I also created a new account for Leo curation. Seemed like a good idea. Still working around understanding a lot of things.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

0

That's a smart move buddy. I think the future Airdrops are for CUB and LEO holders. So you might want to focus on stacking these two.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

2

Same here, keep stacking both, I would think both would count so it's a win win !

Also, we have a small bounce for $CUB this morning (+15% )

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

CUB seems to have bottomed out, that is for sure.

I have a feeling the new mechanism will enhance the value rather rapidly once word gets out.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

0

I think the one pertaining to the next project is going to apply to CUB. We do know that ProjectBlank is LEO holders.

So yeah, long term, not a bad idea to get as many of each as possible.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

0

I think all CUB held qualifies for the airdrop but I cant swear to it.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

0

I am hoping it does qualify otherwise the biggest liquidity pool will have a large amount of unhappy people.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I picked up a few more CUB today. I now have everything in the DEN. Price is moving up a bit but it will have to move up even more before I break even.

Nevertheless; I will be purchasing more on a periodic basis.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Just keep adding and with the APR as well price appreciation, I think you will be good.

Mainstream media pushing dumb narratives. I think they are trying to justify a CBDC.

I think that's true to some extent when it comes to developing countries. It will act as a little upgrade to the current monetary system. Will only make it easier to buy bitcoin.

But that's a narrative they are pushing out far to get CBDCs accepted.

I would prefer a VR adventure of the space flight over the actual one. In fact I think technology will improve so much you can't tell the difference.

I think its going to be good for BTC in general and at worst, it could just mean people don't use it. But since its a win-win for everyone involved, I don't see any reason why they would refuse.

I read an article on that yesterday, seems it's coming out in November. But there was no mention in what I read on improving transaction times.

Another leofiannce witness post. The comments are interesting since it seems like the witness node isn't getting enough attention and some people are waiting to see what happens there.

I don't exactly know what the 'witness' thing is all about, barely have time to know. But whatever it is, Leofinance deserves to be in the top 20.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Witnesses are essentially the people verifying everything happening on the HIVE. The top 20 essentially get paid the most and also do the most work.

That's understandable. Thanks.

Witnesses, also known as block-producers, are pretty much the folks that make HIVE possible. Every transaction made on HIVE is stored on their computer servers (nodes). These nodes are either owned or rented by the witnesses and are located all over the world.

Collectively these nodes are called the HIVE blockchain ledger (like a diary of everything that happens on HIVE but located on a number of different nodes).

Witnesses are also the elected governors of HIVE. The top 21 witnesses (number 21 is a tie-breaker) influence the developmental direction of the blockchain and its economics. Every HIVE account, great or small, is eligible to vote for a maximum of 30 witnesses.

I hope I understood your question correctly and that my reply, though oversimplified, aids in your understanding.

I received an airdrop of that last UNTAMED card, Hero Beyond, the other day, 4 of them! I also got that Gorgodon in both regular and Gold foil as an airdrop as well. Gave away the regular one. Looks like all the Untamed packs are sold out.

There are a few hundred UNTAMED Packs for sale on the LEODEX. A little pricey though. Cheapest ask is around $2.74 USD. Alpha packs are going for over $50 and Betas for over $10.

Don't look now, but there's been an uptick on the price of CUB. I said the other day I was a buyer and I put some money where my mouth is this morning and added some at 52 cents. Woohoo! I'm already in a profit! :-) Of course I still have a ways to go to hit my breakeven price but....not as far as you might think since I've added so many for free with the staking.

I saw task say he bought some in the last couple days. Anyone else take advantage or planning to? Personally, I think we could see it move back up closer to $1 over the next couple weeks. 56 to 84 cents would be a 50% move.....nothing to sneeze at. Just sayin'....

This is pretty awesome. Keep staking as always.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I would thing that has great impact upon what is happening. People, at least on Leo, are starting to see the potential. We will see how things look in a month. If their development rolls out as planned, things could be a lot different.

That's true T. I feel we are going in the right direction so far after the learnings we had in the first two months.

The model at which Autfarm is going quite well for them. It's one of the best DeFi models out there. Also matches the ideals of Leo Finance team - interoperability and sustainability.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I am waiting for my payment ( on 15th ) . As soon as I get it and if the CUB price is still under a dollar I will buy them .

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

2

It should be unless there is a massive price run up over the next two days. I wouldnt expect it. I think it will slowly ascend.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

0

Well its a bit too bad that my buy in came after the price went up. But regardless, I think CUB at around $0.60 is a steal and adding to the FARM for the APR will net me quite a bit.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

2

Think about it this way: an easy 3x on your money at a minimum in the next month or so (just a guess).

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

0

Lets hope CUB moves back up and I don't think I would get a 3x but maybe. Since its in the CUB/BUSD, I naturally get less price appreciation but also less price depreciation. The CUB APR does make up for it.

Almost daily I make an addition to my stake. With the potential going forward, these low prices are damn near impossible to pass up. Can you say undervalued, I sure can.

GO CUBBIES!!!!!!

Dollar cost averaging in this situation makes a ton of sense in my opinion. We are seeing huge potential with the idea of much higher prices. If all that is planned comes together, it will be enormous.

Even on the bounce, I am still going to buy some more. It is a great one to have in my opinion.

We are just getting started with this thing. Plus the payouts on CUB hodling is going to increase.

Everyday when I am free or when I am learning something on internet which can be shared here I will just put it in the script.

The next day as soon as LMT post is made , the script will post the link to those article with small description which I would have given to it .

This will put more top level comments and spark the engagement , what do you feel ?

I think its a good idea. In fact, you could probably pull a few things that are trending on google search and put them as top level comments.
