Steem and Steemit mentioned & discussed on the Joe Rogan Experience

in #joerogan6 years ago

On Joe Rogan's podcast today with Tony Hinchcliffe they were talking about blockchain. Joe mentioned that Andreas Antonopulos (@aantonop) has been on his show before and that he himself although he does not have anything invested in it, believes in the tech and its future. They went on to discuss about different currencies and how anyone with a high profile could at this point in time start their own and give it value and then they mentioned Steem and looked at the Steemit trending page.

I recorded the snip from it so you can see it here, for the full podcast, click on this link (it's at about 2:38).

Feels really cool seeing it mentioned by such high profile people, I've watched a lot of Joe Rogan podcasts and he often discusses really interesting stuff.

Too bad they were not aware that we do already have @dtube and @dsound, I bet they'd be interested in posting here too. :)

Thanks @heymattsokol for bringing this to me.


"Now that makes sense" -- Joe Rogan
"This seems more next level" -- Joe Rogan

Lol assholes like me can spin this to a "He endorses this" hahahaha...

I dont know if he'll ever see it but I shot a tweet to him to tell him and Tony about dtube and dsound too.

Yeah they discussed it a bit, but he doesn't really understand it, nor did he really endorse it. It was (poorly) explained to him and he said it makes sense. However, he still truly doesn't understand how steemit, or cryptocurrencies in general work. If he came to dtube/steemit, he would make bank 'cuz he already has a large following. Whereas, people like myself and many others have to struggle to get any recognition whatsoever. He had Andreas Antonopoulos on the show, who tried to explain bitcoin and how it works, and it shows he didn't really get it. BTW, he also mentioned the current system (fiat currencies and fractional reserve banking) as being good. That means he (like so many others) truly don't understand the concepts of money/currencies and what money/currencies actually are and can be! Moreover, the current financial system where money is created out of debt is not frickin' good at all! We have simply been forced to use it!

Of course, mere commenting about it doesnt mean endorsement. I was joking.

Well, His podcast and fanbase is huge and he's very established in Youtube as well as on his current platforms, the few thousands extra he might get from dtube and the steem blockchain may not be that enticing for all the extra effort of moving his fanbase, learning the platforms, understanding about "this weird Bitcoin thing". As you said, He's had Andreas on his podcast (yea i watched that podcast too), and still he's not really sold on the idea yet.. Baby steps i guess. it's an eventuality that big names like him will jump over to decentralized social media be it Steem or something else.

many of use here knows and understands theres something wrong with the fiat system. though unfortunately it's not a notion shared by most.

like @surfermarly said, we aint the early adopters no no no.. We're the fringe fanatics. we're way ahead that other and must pay the price of being perceived as "weird" and "ahead of our time".

"If he came to dtube/steemit, he would make bank 'cuz he already has a large following. Whereas, people like myself and many others have to struggle to get any recognition whatsoever"

Dont worry brah, just keep on grinding and learning how to play this game while being true to yourself, we'll make it someday.

Thanks. I got that you were joking, but I just had to put my 2 cents in. People like Joe should be using multiple platforms, including dtube/steemit. It would benefit him greatly in the long run as a hedge from the censorship that is taking place on YouTube, which will only get worse and probably affect him at some point. Someone close to him needs to explain that to him. However, I don't think anyone close to him knows much about platforms like dtube/steemit and how the crypto-world works. That could be assessed by their conversation. Crypto IS the future and will change things dramatically just like the internet did 25 years ago.

Nah.. Don't worry about it. The longer it takes for famous people like them to come over the longer going will get easy.

I'm Joe Rogan famous!!! Muh POST!!! MUH POST IS ON JOE ROGAN!!!!

Maybe one day you get to do podcast with him about Steem! It seemed like he was very into the idea, imagine the reaction when he realizes that we already have Dtube, Dsound Zappl, Steepshot, Utopian, Dmania and many more enabling creators of all kinds to become part of this "next generation" social media. You should try and reach out for him.

Are you kidding me?

Joe Rogan?

can't wait to have him here man


Oh, we gotta get that hashtag trending ASAP!

Congrats man, you've won at life!

How does it feel to be forever recorded in a Joe Rogan podcast in the Youtube data servers?

Steem and Steemit have been on the news a lot this week! Earlier this week in Kaiser Report, there was a 2 to 3 minutes talk about the steem blockchain, steemit and the market it can reach :-D

(Steem gets mentioned around 17:20)

Steemit is mentioned at 17 min 20 seconds

i said it ealier in the week, steemit is the future of social media. The more folks like these talk about it, the more steemit becomes the news in the air and the more high profile folks start getting in which in turn will increase its influence within the populace.

I see many ditching facebook for steemit. Steemit is mostly about you and your friends.

you need not worry anout adverts, at least not yet.

Many more influential folks are joining steemit this year.

its going to be a new world of STEEMIANS!

I hope so! If it went to the moon I'd be one happy camper.

this is so freaking dope@lunaticpandora

I agree with you

Always mention the time of mention in longer videos so users don't have to search for it themselves. It's a small thing but huge time saver.

My bad, it starts around 17:20, i'll edit the comment! Thanks, can't believe i forgot that.

Damn Jamie did a poor job describing Steemit to Joe. Wish he would have done a better job, it would blow Joe´s mind ;D


Well i guess that's cos he tried to cover too wide a topic to close the gap of understanding between him and Joe, he's trying to describe what Steem is, as a blockchain token, then he gotta describe what a token is (and how people trade it), and THEN he touched a bit on what a blockchain is..

It's like telling people what a microwavable tupperware is when the magnetron was just invented.

But again, if Joe only tried to really understand all that beforehand (he did has a show with @aantonop of all other people before). He would have his mind blown.

That's amazing ! Joe Rogan must have hundreds of thousands of followers. My older brother actually follows him as well, maybe good old Joe can help convince him in the end to join steemit hehe

Millions of followers. Was number 1 podcast for a while, currently number 6.

Man that's huge ! I also thInk he will fit like a glove in this community ! Can't wait to see how things develop !

Really cool. Joe was definitely enthusiastic about the platform.

@jjcali, no one won't be enthusiastic about steem, i was when i was introduced to the platform by a friend, when i introduced my wife, she took it to a whole new level, you know how women can be passionate about some stuffs. lol. introduced it to my brother and he is always asking one question or the other to know more but to see Joe Rogan talk about steemit? this makes my month i tell ya

Seems the platform is more enthusiastic about him.

I mean... That's Joe Fuckin Rogan talking about Steem!!

Well, give him some credit eh.. A tool wont have the brain power to gather 4.01 Million followers on twitter, 2 milion on Youtube. He's got skills on some sort, and time.. he's on the game for donkey years.

Also, people like you and me who instinctively knows "blockchain is the way, government is wrong, fiat is scam" are a rare sort, alot others still needs education.

plus, imagine if even 0.1% of his viewers on that video alone went and google "". That's more people than ive ever tried to get into Steem!

If those guys don't have a clue what we already have here? We a f milionares already.

Haha 2018 may prove to be very nice :)

I'm still a thousandaire... a multi-thousandaire!

Your time will come. Don't worry. You're just after the first row.

I'm not worried, at all. I've been holding on to everything, and for a damn good reason. I know what that reason is. Knew it since day one.

The Steemian Paradox, We want famous people to be on the platform but when they come here we no longer be steemit famous.

You'll be fine. Keep grinding.

This is EPIC Joe Rogan is the man.

@dadapizza, yeah man, he is the man and many more of his kind are coming on board. Before the year runs ou, its going to be a new world; the "steemians world".

I love the optimism I feel the same way! There is steady, serious momentum with this site and blockchain. With JOE FREAKIN ROGAN the goat that he is talking about Steem in a positive way is just awesome.

yea man@dadapizza, i love the choice of words you used; "steady, serious momentum".

These are the factors needed to take steemit to a whole new level.

its so awesome.

had to call my wife to see this, she screamed when she saw it.

So awesome, we will see effects quickly of just this brief mention of Steem on Rogan's podcast. He has a lot of followers that will for sure become curious about the site, and then the blockchain. The overall domino effect will be great.

Yea man. You got the feeling.

It would be really great if they find out about @dtube and @dsound. Bringing in such high profile people into the community will definitely be great for steem and steemit. Can't you reach out to them?

I doubt there are easy ways for randoms to reach out to such high profile people. :)

Do they receive calls from their audience? If yes, you could take advantage of that.

Sounds like defeatism attitude :D

I remember in the early days of the internet and something called SMTP email, a book author had his email address in the book. I used a shell account to email it and let him know I liked the book and some questions. I was astounded he responded. I suspect it's harder to reach large media creators so directly these days though.
