This question has been on my mind for a few days. SO I decided to make a contest out of it!

What would I do with 1/2 a million steem power, how would you use it?.

That is a pile of steem and would immediately open up many doors to changing things within the platform. The people you could rally behind you to build something that helps life the value of the site, or an ICO, a separate site built upon the blockchain that could be a massive success itself and bring in a whole pile of new users.

I was told by a person who is highly intelligent and does carry that kind of steem, that SP is not the be all, end all in this game on the steem blockchain. No, the most important thing is INFLUENCE

With that kind of SP you could guide a whole tag and develop it into something that could help everyone succeed as we have seen with our friend @surpassinggoogle, A most amazing human, who has definitely had a major impact upon this site and its retention rate.

Steam Power

Lets think of steem power as acutal steam power and how many uses and applications it had during the industrial revolution.It was HUUGE, they powered everything from transportation, to fabrication, and to entertainment.
When looking back before the invention of the internal combustion engine, the imagination was limit of what people were inventing with steam as it power drive. Even to this day, most of our power in the world comes from steam through nuclear power.

so looking as steem as the same sort of drive as steam was for the industrial era. The doors of our imaginations an begin to open to the possibilities of what can be built using the steem blockchain as the basis.

So I ask you, what would you do, if you had 500,000 SP and you could not take it out. What kind of amazing or even industrious ideas would you build upon it??

I will put up 10 steem coins in prizes to the best answers to this question.

  • 5 steem to the winner
  • 3 steem to 2nd
  • 2 steem to 3rd

I reckon I would set up a service that makes donations directly to towns in third world countries to set up a clean source of water for all the people to access.

I am not really making this comment for the sake of competition but i guess it could be part of it.

i consider myself a hard worker on Steemit in the most literal sense of it and there are different things i wish to do that not having the required SP is not letting me do well.
you see, i am a blogger and i have always been a fan of good content but then i realise that some times even the best of content dont get much on their posts. i tend to talk too much so let me just get to it.
first i will explore the block chain well in search of absolute newbies that from their blogs its obvious they have been working add... i will probably add them to my steem voter for a week and then move in search for another set.
second i will delegate some of it to some communities that i can see that they have wonderful goals and usefulness on the block chain, communities that actually want to help and there is evidence of what they have been doing to promote Steemit.

basically for now those are the most burning ideas in my mind

Not sure what I would do with that much - probably delegate quite a bit!!
This is not an entry to the competition - no time unfortunately - I like the post and so just wanted to write a short comment and leave an upvote


Well sir if I got such great power I willl buy many more horses of high bread and create a race platform and earn a lot of money.

sounds nice, but the question is" How would you improve steemit through applications or other initiatives?" basically if you could not use the money outside of the internet, how would you make it work for you inside through other means.

Actually, one of my major goals here is to reach that amount of Steem Power - why? Well, mostly I want power, but not only for the sake of it.

I want to influence people. I want to be genuine and help those I think deserve it. Selfish? Maybe. Egoistic? Totally! But I want to make my words matter!

Or, not even my words, my votes are enough for it. I would purge out the beggars and raise the honest. As several many other cryptocurrencies, it's a huge opportunity for the poor around the world to escape their desperate fate.

I could start trading on Bittrex, own all sorts of cryptos: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, Decentraland Mana, Augur Rep...I want others to experience the same.

Steem is a way to improve humanity as a whole, through mundane actions, and I want to use my Steem Power to help this system go on.

Even if I make mistakes - everyone does.

Oh and more importantly, I'd help posts with no comment with visibility. I hate that whenever I'd start a discussion with a post, no one reacts.

Ok so here would be my plan I took out all of october no working to re evaluate my life and I have come to the conclusion that I can only work for myself. So the plan I would have is to bring an audience to my new business which is kind of a qvc channel but for social media. I would make a project all about my business design and work closely with people who are making successful businesses online, then I would maybe make a course and use the sp to help other people who want to start something similar with their own entrepreneurship.

Oh Waoooo .... If I have a steam power of half a million I will help my fellow steemians first so they can be collected to continue a program I want to run to help the needy poor. And my second project program Forming a community to create clean air by planting many trees and creating a clean city environment where a city needs it. Hopefully me by following this contest achieved my ideals. and also can change the world's air pollution that ruins the life of the world.

how @steveblack is i eligible to enter this contest ..?

OMG!!! :O If I get 500 000 SP, I'll be so much happy and what I'm gonna do is keep 1/2 of it here on steem and convert the rest of the money in to lkr (Sri Lankan Rupees)(That's so much money ) and buy everything I want and my parents and my sis and my bro want with 1/2 of it. Then invest the rest of the money somewhere else.

That's great @chamudiliyanage but lets say you cannot remove any of the Steem power and you had to make steemit better or make yourself a more successful steemian. How would you do that?
It is a lot of power on steemit. :) So how would you use it with steemit. How would you make more money, because lots of people would follow you because of your power.

Well then I'll post many many quality posts here on Steemit and earn a lot of SBD. Then I'll vote other steemians' quality posts giving them more money. I'll follow many steemians who post quality posts and help others grow. And also I'll be helding contests giving others a chance to win some more money.

Wait, you're from Sri Lanka? I totally thought you're from the US or any other English speaking country.

What made you think of such a thing?

Honestly, I don't even know, it was some sort of preassumption.
