Steemit Bootcamp March 2018 - KICKSTART Your Steemit Success

in #howto4 years ago (edited)


Seriously, if the title doesn’t entice you, I don’t know why you’re still reading this. ;)


You’re probably asking, what are cryptocurrencies? You’ve probably heard of the crazy meteoric rise of Bitcoin and Ethereum. What was worth a few cents a few years ago could go as high as USD16,000. Yup, such is the nature of cryptocurrencies.


STEEM is one of those coins, and it’s pretty new, and already trading between USD3 to USD8 per coin.

And to earn STEEM is by using something you already have in your head - your ideas, thoughts, concepts, experiences, stories, insights.


Yup, essentially if you have something to say, you can earn STEEM coins. As a matter of fact, if you had been active on any social media platforms at all - Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and more - you can earn STEEM coins! Plus, you don’t only earn coins when you create contents, but when you curate contents too. Yes, as mindblown as it sounds, “liking” a post actually earns you money! #mindblown

And STEEMIT is the cutting-edge blockchain-backed social blogging platform that can do all that. And more!

In summary, all you need to know about Steemit is:

  • When other people like the contents you posted on Steemit, you make money.
  • When you like other people’s contents on Steemit, you make money.

And for the question How Do I Make Money Faster & Easier? There’s where the STEEMIT BOOTCAMP comes in.

  • Discover the ins and outs of Steemit, and how you can leverage on it as an income generator
  • Learn tools to help you generate TONS of content ideas so you’ll never run out of things to write on (remember, the more contents you create on Steemit, the more you can potentially earn)
  • Beat the crap out of Writer’s Block, and be able to write anytime, anywhere
  • Explore ways to withdraw your STEEM Coins into your MYR bank account, and how to trade with other digital coins
  • Build your fan based and followers, and become an influencer!
  • And more!

PLUS: Because we’re so sure about Steemit, by your 5th good post, you will be able to earn back the fees for this bootcamp!

*Good posts are those that you are proud to show your loved ones. It’s just to guarantee a certain level of standard. We can’t guarantee for crappy posts (one pic of what you’re eating for lunch or your new ceiling will get you nothing).

There are two bootcamps this month, and NO, you do not need to attend both. Seriously, it's just repeated content, and unless you have short-term memory, I don't think you'll need to attend them back-to-back!


Date: Saturday, 24th March 2018
Time: 9am to 5pm
Venue: G Central, Sunway Nexis Office Suites, Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
Registration Link


Date: Sunday, 25th March 2018
Time: 9am to 5pm
Venue: JCI Lead Tropicana, Kelana Square, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
Registration Link


Catalyst is a social movement that supports other social enterprises through coaching and mentoring. Starting from Nigeria, Catalyst is set to empower social causes all over the world!

JCI Lead Tropicana is a membership-based non-profit organisation of young active citizens ages 18 to 40 years old. The profits will be used for their disaster relief funds to help those in need.


Q: So, what is this bootcamp all about?
A: The Steemit Bootcamp is a 8 hour program to get you started on earning on We will guide you through the setting up of the account, help you with your first few posts, give you tips on how to engage with the Steemit community, and most importantly, how to make money from the contents you will be creating on it.

Q: You mean I can make money when I post money on Steemit?
A: Hmph, don’t you want to know what Steemit is first?

Q: Ok, what is Steemit?
A: Great question! In one line, Steemit is a social blogging platform built on blockchain technology, which rewards content creators and curators with Steem. One Steem is currently trading around USD7 (at the time of writing). When you post contents (articles, videos, podcasts or photos), you will earn Steem. When you comment and upvote other people’s contents, you will earn Steem. The crazy part? Even those who upvoted your content earn Steem too!

Check out this video for a quick TWO minute video for a quick explanation. (Yeah, should have started with that.)

Q: Wow, really? And can I withdraw Steem money into my bank account?
A: Yes you can. We will walk you through the process during the bootcamp.

Q: Where the money comes from?
A: We will explain it further during the bootcamp.

Q: Wait…wait…wait… Is this some kind of MLM or Ponzi scheme?
A: Definitely not. Firstly, we are not even paid to introduce Steemit to you. There is no selling involved, no levels, no commissions, no downlines to manage, no “maintenance fees”. Secondly, it’s not a Ponzi scheme because you do not need money to start earning on Steemit. As a matter of fact, the RM100 fee that you’re paying for the bootcamp, after the F&B cost, will be donated to a charitable cause. (See above)

Q: So Steemit is legit?
A: Yes it is.

Q: No subscription or hidden fees, right?
A: Nope, we are not like those sneaky banks with their credit cards.

Q: Ok, I’m keen. What do I need to do before the bootcamp? What do I need to bring?

Must Do Before The Bootcamp:

You must open a Steemit Account. It’s not like normal account that can be approved automatically. It may take between 6 to 48 hours, so unless you just want to see the other participants making money, you better not procrastinate on this one.

Open your account here.

DO NOT LOSE YOUR PASSWORD! Unlike other services, YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO RESET YOUR PASSWORD. Write it down in a favourite book, save it in a secured online folder, or put it in your safe deposit box. Serious, if you lose your password, you will have to start all over again, and you will not be able to withdraw your money. At all.

To Bring for The Bootcamp:

  • Laptop (iPad, Tablet, Phone won't be able to do sometimes you need to get done)
  • Stationeries for note taking
  • Yourself
  • An open mind will help
  • A willingness to try new things will be an added advantage

Q: Will you be providing food?
A: Yes.

Q: Ok, I'm still curious why you want to donate 100% of the profits. It's not something I commonly see.
A: At the started teammalaysia Steemit community, @bitrocker2020 and myself agreed that all our community events will be either free, or at cost price. Anything additional (profits) will be donated or used to fund our future community events. If we are advocates of Steemit and cryptocurrencies, it only made sense if we generate income on the platform (by creating and curating contents).

Q: I got more questions about the event.
A: You can WhatsApp me at +60162252500, or email me at [email protected].


At the present moment, we've not ironed out the details of bringing this outside of Malaysia (but trust me we are working on it.) Follow us and we'll keep you posted!

In the meantime, you can check out some of these Steemit guides to help you 10x your Steemit Success.

Wait, why's Mav posting on Steemit nowadays?

Well, unlike other blogging and social media platform, Steemit is the only platform that allows me to earn cryptocurrency when I engage with it. Yup, one Steem is about USD7, and you, too, can earn Steem Dollars every time you:

  • Create content (articles, blog posts, podcasts, videos, photos)
  • Upvote (like) other people contents
  • Comment on other people's posts
  • Have discussions, share opinions etc!

Yup, basically it's the very same thing you're doing on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc all along!

The only difference? For once you can earn a nice income on the side!

Sign up for a free Steemit account, and you can thank me by coming back and upvoting this article. And guess what, you will earn Steem too for doing that! #awesome



Good initiative. The registration link for Saturday seems incorrect.

Haha, thanks for pointing it out. Have made the corrections.

still feel fresh after your masterclass.
it really help me a lot to form a good content

thank you very much

Awesome brother! It will only get better. :)

Have an awesome day!

This is amazing! I wish I was in Malaysia to go to this! (my mom is from there and I have been planning to visit someday though...hmmm) I just wanna say I came across your blog post about the 365 post ideas and it could have come at a better time! I am new to writing content and I have been sitting here for the last hour with no ideas. I am going to try all of the things you mentioned in that post like "Chunking Down!" Thanks for your amazing information!

Hi there! Great to know you find the info useful.

I'm working on a way where perhaps we can do some parts of the bootcamp online, especially the part you just mentioned - what to write about.

You're not alone, because that's one of the three major problems most Steemians face, the other two being:

  • How to write fluently/how to articulate my thoughts
  • How to court more followers

What a good initiative, you learn a lot in that camp, keep teaching all your knowledge to help other people to emerge

Thanks for the kind words.

Can't wait for something like this outside Malaysia. Even living in Bangkok, we won't be able to attend the workshop at the end of March. We hope it's well-attended and lots of support and knowledge can be shared. Also, good job on #teammalaysia and the Academy program for giving back and donating to charity! :)

Thanks for the kind words. I am visiting Bangkok in March to explore opportunies for this to be brought over. Stay tuned!

You're welcome any time! We will stay tuned and look out for the news. If you need any help we're here too. Just ask and see if we're competent 😝 hahaha
