Hi there my Hivean friends and followers!

Yesterday, I got a notification from @hivebuzz that I received a personal badge as it was my fourth birthday here on Hive. I knew it was but I had to roll out another round of my regular Monday tipping challenge and since I didn´t want to spam your feed with 2 posts in one day, I decided to put off the "celebration" until today. Thanks for the badge, @hivebuzz, it looks cool :)

So yeah, 4 years on this amazing chain with this amazing community, wow... I still remember that day, November 29, 2017 when I created my account and published the first post. It was on the terrace of our apartment in Playa del Carmen, Mexico where we lived back then. Of course I had no idea back then that this seemingly simple and mundane moment would literally change my life :) I don´t want to describe my journey here on Hive again as I have already done that many times in my previous milestone posts (not just birthday posts, I like celebrating all kinds of milestones :D) so instead, I will show you how Hive has progressed during those years, at least price-wise.

So when I joined Hive (it was actually Steem back then, I am sure most of you know the story, right?) on November 29, 2017 the price of the coin was $0.96. It was just before the epic bullrun at the turn of 2017/2018. One month later, Steem hit the ATH of more than $8...

When I was celebrating my first birthday on the chain on November 29, 2018 the price of the coin (still Steem back then) was $0.37. We were already several months into what turned out to be an incredibly long and exhausting bear market...

My second birthday on the chain on November 29, 2019 was the last one on Steem. The price was $0.15. Very frustrating times. The blockchain sometimes felt like a ghost town but some of us were still active on daily basis...

My third birthday was last year. November 29, 2020. Finally on Hive. The price was $0.12 per 1 Hive. Still super low but the spirit and atmosphere in the community were much different. We were Hive already. We were excited, determined and ready to make it big...

And we did it ;) Yesterday, November 29, 2021. My fourth birthday and the price was $2.77. Just a few days before that, we even broke the $3 mark and I am sure we will soon break $5 too...

But don´t get me wrong. There are many people here on the chain who created their accounts long before me. I don´t consider myself an OG here. But I think even my journey can be a good example and a proof that consistency, persistence and dedication really pay off in the long run. If you were active here during those days when Hive was cowering around the $0.10 mark, deep in the crypto market cap basement, you must remember how easy it actually was to earn Hive because the competition for the reward pool was just a fraction of what it is now when we keep hitting new ATHs almost every other day and people are flocking to our chain in masses. Just keep that in mind in the next bear market ;)

Thank you guys for being a part of all of this. It´s been quite the ride indeed. Hive on! :)

Díky moc! Jasně, současný cenový vývoj nemůže netěšit ;) Zvlášť ty z nás, kteří jsme nelenili ani v dobách podstatně hubenějších, což? ;)

Wow my friend, You are spending truly amazing journey with Hivers. Congratulations for completed 4th annniversary on Hive. When I started follow you, I got big knowledge from you. As nature lover, I got good points from you for publish my posts too. Good luck and I hope you'll stay long term with us. Greetings from Sri Lanka.

Aww, thanks buddy :) Your content has been very useful and educative for me too. Definitely want to be here long term, no worries :D ;) Greetings from Poland all the way to Sri Lanka!

Congratulations! Also, I am waiting for HIVE to beat Steem to that $8 ATH! Of course our supply right now is higher than back then, but I am confident we will get there!

Oh yeah, that would be sweet! Well, the amount of progress, development, use case, skills, adoption, popularity etc. etc. that we have now here on Hive and what we had on Steem back then in January 2018 is just incomparable so we should be able to beat that ATH soon or later. We will see :)

Happy Anniversary mate. I will also have my 4th in January.

Congratulations! You have been an example to me and helped, even if you didn't know it, to get through the moments of difficulty, when I was tempted to leave this platform that now seems determined to reward persistence and loyalty! I wish you many happy years ahead here and everywhere and thanks for the example!

I didn´t know but I totally get it, I think most of us have had some moments of doubts and uncertainty at some point if all of this makes sense but the most important thing is that we overcame the fears and stayed persistent and loyal ;) Thanks for this nice comment. I really appreciate it. All the best to Romania :)

Thank you my friend :) I think you made an awesome decision. Buying so much Hive at the lowest price ever is a truly impressive feat, no need to worry about leaving some money there ;)

Aww, thank you Sofia :) You have been active all those years as well, although you have another job, respect for that! And greetings to Venezuela ;)

Thank you! Yes, I recently turned three on the blockchain! Although the last two years is that I have been really active and now I'm thinking of working only as a blogger, we will see if it's financially possible :)

Awesome! So glad to hear this :) I think if the price of Hive stays at least above 2 dollars, many more people from Hive will be able to live off their Hive earnings, especially in countries where stuff is not expensive. Good luck with your blogging career!

Yes! Hopefully it stays above $2. Thanks for your wishes! :)

Congratulations! Time goes by very fast and we barely noticed it, the market was very bearish, but as long as we have that dedication we can grow more and more within HIVE. Surely next year will be even better!
