Using blockchain allows helpful comments and posts with a safe value mark as in upvote. as well as images that can be uploaded and hosted on Steemit, Other multimedia content such as video views from youtube can also be embedded from other web hosts to post articles alongside story and video images. For formatting, there are editors displayed in steemit even though unlike bloggers in general, in Steemit editor users can also choose to use the Down to down format with HTML elements.

User accounts can increase the number of posts and comments, and upvoted authors can receive prize money in a crypto sign named STEEM and a US dollar pegged token called Steem Dollars. People are also rewarded for curating (finding) popular content. Curation involves voting comments and post submissions. The awards of strength and appreciation are influenced by the number of STEEM power held by voters.
