Donkeys’ Leave the Gate a Crack

Donkeys’ Leave the Gate a Crack


A business associate I had the pleasure to work with years ago grew up on a ranch. He was talking about his Donkeys one day after someone inquired about having “Assets”. Since he didn’t know what Assets were at the time, he thought the conversation was about “donkeys”. In the conversation, he mentioned how difficult donkeys could be but if you were on your toes, you could outsmart them. Regarding getting them rounded up, his comment was, “if you left the gate just a crack, they would bust in!”

Someone has to lead the charge! 

Victories can never be won if there is no leader. Just as in conflict, someone has to lead the charge. Similarly in business, who is going to go first. BITCOIN started in 2008 as a paper that became the blueprint for a Virtual Currency. Another virtual currency company that has been busy is a company by the name Compumatrix and they are busy producing their virtual currencies. In a short measure of time, the world will know what this is all about. 


Slowly, those that seek alternatives will come to know the world of virtual currency. There are stages of acceptance and we are in the stage of early adopters. These are the people and the companies that lead the charge. They are the ones that are always alert to changes in trends. When something happens, they are there to “make it happen”. 

Keep in mind also the saying: “There are those that make things happen, then there are those that watch things happen and there are the rest that ask: WHAT HAPPENED?” This is the crossroads of your life where you get to choose which of those people you wish to be! 

As early adopters, the members of COMPUMATRIX are striding forward to assist usher in this age of virtual currency. We started earning activity points that are converted to virtual currency and now over time, they have been earning Bitcoin. 

We have been on the forefront of this “Crypto” revolution for some time. We aren’t just waiting for the right time but we are creating our own reality. This is what those that ride the wave do. They don’t wait to see what happens, they make thing happen!

We are always eager for the day that “our ship comes in”! One person I worked with in the past stated: “with my luck, when my ship comes in, I’ll be at the Airport”! Knowing the situation could present itself such as this, we have positioned “agents” at the Airport, at the Port and at the Rail Station! We are ready!

Many are going to “wait until it happens”! As for myself, I am going to be with the first Donkeys busting thru the gate!

Come and join us at COMPUMATRIX

  1. I loved the reference to donkeys. I grew up with some; my grandfather had them on his ranch. They were hard workers; my grandfather said they were much of the reason his “business” was so successful. Donkeys don’t give up and they are smart, even smarter than horses. They are determined and focused. Like those donkeys, I am also going to come through that gate the second it opens. As Willie Wonka said, “you must never, never doubt what nobody is sure about”.

  2. I always heard donkeys were stubborn and strong-headed. Maybe a bit of that is what it takes to succeed. Can you see a softie failing several times and several years before they know a little success? Me either, and most will throw up their hands and walk away from a challenge instead of meeting it head-on and plowing through!! I am sure there are a lot of us who share donkey stubbornness here!!

  3. Before Bitcoin was Compumatrix. I always tell that before that day when Satoshi Nakamoto publish the “white paper” we were active gaining activity points to be able to purchase virtual VPC or Adpacs at that time. And not to forget our own payment system called Eonpay.
    Yes we have a leader, but not just one . Henry, David, BOD, RR, AR, Staff , Devs always there to give us a hand

  4. The early bird catches the worm, as people say.
    Stephen has done well to remind us that we need to be on TOP OF EVERYTHING.
    We need to keep learning and be updated, to make things happen. Compumatrix has given us this opportunity.
    Lets be ready to barge in, when the gates open. Frankly speaking, a better opportunity that the one we have, is very difficult to get.
    We have a solution right in front of us.
    A blessing!

  5. I love this story because I was in the room when John shared with us about the donkeys. It was a business meeting very much like our business (only different, very different). Someone was trying to get John to invest in a business he was promoting. At the time, I guess you can say this story led us in an ultimate path here to Compumatrix.

  6. Good article Stephen specially you relating it to Donkeys to take a lead into the crypto world. Yes we at Compumatrix have been the Leaders and Founders with crypto currency and mainly Bitcoin.We have a long journey ahead of us as the world changes to Digital currency.

  7. most definitely donkeys are an interesting and sometimes stubborn breed and very fun to watch at times from a distance — I believe in order for success in any business there has to be leader or leaders who aren’t Afraid to go forward and who are stubborn to not let small setbacks or Life in general to stop them to the Success —

  8. Related to Gail’s comment about stubborn donkeys, here is one for you:

    I read a book years ago called: “Tom Bass, Black Horseman”
    Tom was raised by his grandfather. He wanted a horse and kept bugging his grandfather. His grandfather couldn’t afford a horse but he had a young mule (5 years old) in the pasture because he couldn’t get him to do anything. So, he told Tom if he could do anything with him, he’s yours. Tom took a halter and rope and retrieved the mule. On his way back he climbed on his back but the mule sat down and refused to move. Tom went to the barn and grabbed a long thick piece of hemp rope and put it around the mule’s neck. The grandfather saw this and said, “he’s going to hang him, why didn’t I think of that!”

    Well, he didn’t and Tom went on and became one of the best horse trainers of his time. He was barred from one competition due to color. His competitors told the host of the competition that if Tom couldn’t compete, they wouldn’t either. They felt it was an honor to compete against he although they would rarely win.

  9. I love how this post called the members of Compumatrix “early adopters” – what a great way to describe pioneers’ of cryptocurrency! When everything is in place and the magic starts to happen, I will be right there with you as a “Donkey busting thru the gate”! I am so glad to be a part of this company. Being around brilliant minds who have ideas that will truly revolutionize the world is inspiring!

  10. like that phrase also “early adopters” and we are as a group pushing through the Gate just as stubborn donkeys or any animal looking at what is ahead and not fearing that we may fail?? but believing that no matter what — we will Push through that gate and in my opinion we stand a great shot at Success — hope anyways

  11. Stephen that was a great blog. I choose like you to be one of the donkeys and be an early adopter. This company is a blessing to many in a variety of ways. Many times the pioneers in life travel an unchartered territory and not everyone understands the “Why” behind what they are doing. Compumatrix is one of those pioneers, breaking down walls and creating new ways of doing things.
