How Can I Solve My Low RC Problem on STEEM?

FIX LOW RC TROUBLE 5minnow tips 4 April 2019 fitinfun.jpg

When you first start posting on STEEM you will have trouble being active because you will not have enough Resource Credits (RC) to work here. The way to solve this is to get more SP. If you cannot afford to buy it or don’t want to, here are some ways to get more SP:


Do this first, or at any time in the first year when you have less than 200 sp and you will get 50 sp delegated for 30 days. This is the only case where the content you produce is not a factor in the delegation.

FREE STEEM Training and FREE STEEM Power Delegation

You will be

  • taking a free course on Udemy
  • learning about the various currencies on STEEM and how they work together
  • leaving a comment on the post to say you finished the course
  • meeting the fantastic @paulag who is very valuable to you as a connection
  • receiving 50 sp for 30 days so you can get started and keep going

When you post good content:

Both of these steemers will give you a delegation if you are posting good content and qualify. Take a look and see if you do!

How is your journey to better health going?

Is your fitness equipment out handy? Are you on a "diet?" Soon we will be in Bathing Suit Season. Are you ready?

I lost "Half My Size" eight years ago by using natural methods. No tricks, just doing a bit better every day. I started on October 10 one year, and did not give up. Four years later, on October 5th, there I was - thin and healthy for the first time in my life. You can do it too!

This is Sharon @fitinfun. I am posting:

  • Healthy Food Ideas on @fitinfunfood

  • Motivation Minnow Tips and Everything Else on @fitinfun

  • @bxlphabet is posting Southern California, steemmonsters and dtube videos.

Please follow along or contact me directly if you would like some individual help with weight loss and health. Anyone can do this if I did.


An excellent post detailing a few initiatives for new signups. Yes, I do believe it's up to communities to onboard users and that will mean they have to stump up with some SP. Having said that, I'd like to see some way to pool RCs, or give some quota of RCs away. Once one's account gets above a certain size then RCs become a non-issue and you're better off just using them to claim free accounts instead. That's why some way to top-up another user's RCs would be really helpful for communities.

That would be a great idea. Most of use could afford to lose 10% or more of it and see no change. If there was a "trusted" place to send it, I would be first in line. This rc nonsense is really hard on new people.

I hope it will be spread far and wide. A lot of people need this help :)

Helpful stuff! It's such a shame that new users can immediately be put off by not being able to use the very system they've signed up for.

Hopefully many of them will see this post! :-)


I hope so too. I will promote it where I can :)

One solid intro post is all they need I feel like it should be part of the onboarding to steemit

That would be good - a lot of people come in through other dapps and programs besides steemit now. Some give a bit of delegation, but it is really not enough.
