Doge Gecko: A Similarity-Driven Community
How they found Stronghold: Our first Discord member, Doge gecko, found Stronghold through their research on the Stellar Network, coming across Stronghold on Telegram. In their research, they discovered our Discord link and downloaded the app; the rest was history!
Why Discord matters to them: Doge gecko appreciates the Discord channel’s substantive discussions. Members spend time reading others’ thoughts and ideas, comparing these to their own, and often finding common understanding at the heart of it all. In a world full of divisions, the Stronghold community seems to look for similarities rather than differences.
What sets Stronghold apart: Doge gecko feels confident about Stronghold’s future success – we appreciate the support! They feel the current world is at a critical junction in history. New technology is revolutionizing how we store, use, and move money.
What’s next for web3: Adoption is essential. Individual businesses must keep up with technology or risk falling behind. It is time for the financial system to be updated as well. Doge gecko appreciates the anonymity and flawless records blockchain offers. It is time for a change, and they see Stronghold as being in a great position to turn this dream into a reality.
Phoenix22: From COVID Lockdown to Community
How they found Stronghold: Phoenix22 discovered Stronghold through a Telegram community joined to combat COVID lockdown blues. Stronghold popped up in the group’s crypto discussions, and they were drawn to our mission statement: provide payment and financial infrastructure “FOR ALL.”
They also appreciated the origins of Stronghold’s co-founders, Tammy Camp and Sean Bennett. Tammy and Sean recognized the hurdles and high costs of overseas money transfers.

What makes their experience enjoyable: Stronghold has a legitimate channel sheltered from typical scams. Phoenix22 sees Stronghold as an educational resource for those new to crypto. Other members are inviting and respectful. They also gave a shoutout to the Stronghold admins for their engagement and management!
What sets Stronghold apart: The Stronghold Community stands apart because its members focus on helping each other. For example, Phoenix22 mentioned the Stronghold 101 videos. They appreciate the breakdown of technical terms for those new to crypto.
What’s next for Stronghold and Web3: Phoenix22 said Stronghold's future is “like fireworks,” with something new and exciting always on the way. They’re looking forward to full implementation of Web3, where they can finally move funds efficiently. Digital transformation will save us all time and paperwork.
