Please share on your social networks, folks!
I have been pushing Steemit.com as a social media site from some time. For a moment, forget completely about the rewards system to the platform. I'll go more into this in a moment, but here are more important reasons to move your political posting to Steemit...you may find Steemit of value in other areas of interest as well, but here I focus on the political side of it.
While your material can be voted down (flagged) for less visibility, it can not be edited or deleted by a site adminstrater; your account can not be banned, or deleted, or shadowbanned. We have seen abuses of social media systems on Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit when posting material contrary to The Narrative results in censorship, have we not?
Your data is on the Steem blockchain
What is a blockchain?
A blockchain – originally block chain – is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography.
Blockchains are secure by design
The first blockchain was conceptualised by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008 and implemented the following year as a core component of the digital currency bitcoin
What is Blockchain Technology?
Basically, your post is copied entered onto the chain, copied onto multiple record sets/databases/computers, and passed onto each to verify that all databases are the same...
the record keeping is "Transparent and incorruptible"
The original crowd - ancap and libertarian
The first adapters of this website are anarchist-capitalists (ancaps)...really, pure anarchists...and libertarians. They do not flag (downvote) for political differences...mostly ;>
In the beginning, these were the bulk of users. Steemit is still in Beta (testing) mode, but has opened up to many users, most of whom see it as an opportunity to make money (I'll touch on this in a second).
By getting onto the platform before it becomes widely accepted, patriots can build their reputations and networks before the platform is infested with leftists/liberals, limiting the effects of their down-voting...which history shows they will do.
Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing.
Politics is not the largest segment of Steemit users; the most popular categories include photography, travel, art, cryptocurrency, and many others.
My highest paying out post was a smartassed recipe for making hot buttered rum ;>
OK now to the payment part.
Yes, you can make money on Steemit. Until you have built a following of readers, it is not likely to pay much.
The payment system is complicated, other posts explain it better than I can, but I will simplify...
The more Steem Power a user has, the more their upvote (i.e "like") is worth in terms of system payments to the post creator.
The payments are issued based on a cryptocurrency called Steem
That is another reason I urge patriots to start participating on Steemit, to start building our networks.
I have been here over a year, in that time, I have taken some 1000s of dollars (under the tax limit) out in rewards. However, a good deal of that was profit from when the price of Steem went from .14 per Steem to 2.80, and I had accumulated a great deal of it from my writing.
I say this to illustrate it is not easy money, and it is not get rich money, and it is not money you will see soon.
Steem is currently at $3.32; it was at $1.11 three months ago...
