Points and Cryptocurrencies

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty of California, Inc. (lic. #01878277) DRE# 00949880

As I pass 400k in points and head towards 500k, I am amazed at my friends on ActiveRain that have made it to the top.  It has taken me over 10 years to get where I am.  It is remarkable that Roy Kelley, Ron and Alexandra Seigel, Barbara Todaro, Bob Crane, Joan Cox and Kathy Streib all are close to 5 million or higher.  I will never make it at the rate I am going.  I am always amazed at the hard work and commitment that it takes to perform at such a high level. 

Now, let's discuss cryptocurrencies for a bit.  I was at our eXp Convention, eXpCon, in October and took a Cryptocurrency in Real Estate Class.  It was a fascinating class.  Cryptocurrencies are good at creating value where there was no value before.  They are doing in all kinds of areas; as a store of wealth, for business transactions, in real estate, at Steemit (a blog site) and even in electronic games .  At the end of our class, everyone that had an active real estate license was rewarded with 1,000 shares of Propy, a real estate cryptocurrency.  $3,200 at today's market price.

Propy, AKA PRO, cryptocurrency price chart

Why did they just give it to us?  They know a network becomes more valuable the more it grows.  If the network of owners are real estate professionals that may one day use Propy, then the value proposition is even better.  Propy even have a learn and earn program that rewards agents for just learning about their cryptocurrency. 

All this has me thinking.  I know, that could be a very dangerous proposition, but if electronic game companies can reward Gamers with cryptocurrency, why not reward real estate blogging with a real estate crypto?  It seems like a perfect match.  It could do two things; reward those that put out good content and it could make ActiveRain a cutting edge "go to" site again. It would also create an even bigger, more valuable network for the Propy. 

Of course, I do not know how to make it happen, but it is something to think about.  In the mean time, sign up at Propy and get 100 free tokens (follow the Learn and Earn Link above).  A $300 value at today's prices will not make you rich, but, as Dick Van Dyke used to say, "it is better than a sharp stick in the eye."

Next stop....500,000! ! !

Good morning, Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS.  You are another great example and mentor on ActiveRain.  10 times more points than me.  Well done!  Our class was very good and I am looking forward to learning more and watching this market mature.

Hi Ray what an interesting post!  Congratulations on hitting the 400K mark and here's to your next 100K!  And I love the idea of a RE class based on learning about the crypto world and being rewarded for it.  I think it would be fun!

Seems like a cool idea Raymond Henson, eXp Realty Crypto still baffles me and will probably all settle into a handful of specific tokens

Thank you Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker.  I think the crypto world is fascinating.  It will be interesting to see where we end up in ten years time or so.  I sure appreciate your support and I am very impressed with what you have accomplished here at ActiveRain. 

I too, have a lot to learn in the crypto markets, Doug Dawes, and I do think you are correct, the markets will probably pick the best handful of tokens. The trick will be to pick the right ones.  In this down market, I made a few more purchases today.  It will be some time before I know if I did the right or wrong thing.  Thank you for stopping by and being  a good example here on ActiveRain.

Hi Jan Green.  Awesome, I love having friends that are learning about crypto currencies to discuss the subject.  I need to take more classes.  I find the subject fascinating.

Hi Raymond Henson, eXp Realty - Congrats on hitting 400,000+.  It is challenging.  I have been around about as long as you have. What I never realized was that the blogging becomes free at 500,000 points.  I started as a paying customer and it wasn't until I hit 400,000 points until I realized why I was paying less at 100,000 increments. Duhhh!  I wish you Godspeed to get to that 500K milestone!  Happy Monday!

Thank you, Sharon Tara.  I am a beginner to the crypto world.  I just think it will be here for some time and that I need to start learning more about the market.  Lately, it has been a challenge.  It will be interesting to see where the markets are in five or six years.

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty - What a great and insightful post. I started on AR in fourth quarter of 2010 and it took me a long time to reach 500,000. I understand where you are coming from and I also don't think I will ever reach 5 million or higher. I hope you get to the non-paying status ASAP because you deserve it.

As for Cryptocurrency in Real Estate what a novel idea! The concept is very foreign to me so I'm still living in the dark ages. I really gained insights thanks to you and wish you speed to 500K

Your 2.5 million points are very impressive and I understand it with all of the great writing you do.  Thank you for being a good example and mentor for doing ActiveRain right.

500,000 is just around the corner.  I only have about 95,000 points to go!

I don't know much about crypto, but of what I do know, I think it will be here for some time to come and it sure seems like there is a lot of opportunity in it.  Or maybe I just have a FOMO (fear of missing out).
