Registration and Attendance Stats


Steemit Grand Meet and Greet held on August 5 at Rehab Distillery Gastrobar in Mandaluyong initially had 17 pre-registrants that helped pay the initial downpayment to lockdown the venue.

A few people had contacted on my facebook page which ramped the number up to 23 a day before the event.

Early birds arrived as early as 4:30 PM and were welcomed by @tjpezlo, @raynarojas, Bowie and Darlin (recruits by @immarojas) at the Registration Booth.

Here’s the fasttrack video of the preparations:


Program Proper Highlights


A quick summary of the things we covered during our meet and greet – we had our opening remarks by @sasha.shade where he also discussed best practices when posting on Steemit. Next, Deveerei talked about how he earns as a graphic artist on Steemit, inspiring artists to join. I then talked about being new to blogging on steemit and how different it is from earning per click/impression as a blogger followed up by @sasha.shade on how to open and rules for opening a steemit account. Then  @surpassing google gave our newbie steemians inspiring words on how steemit changes people’s lives, as he blogged about in his most recent post. We had a short break for dinner then @jeanelleybee talked about turning your STEEM into Philippine Peso, giving us a bit of background on STEEM, STEEM Power and SBD  which then led to a full discussion on cryptocurrency with the rest of the seasoned steamians.
