Vlog 199: The Weiss Rating gives confidence to investors that the STEEM blockchain is worth and safe to invest in (compared to other cryptos).

in life •  9 months ago


Out of the 3 things I have done with my SBD in the last weeks buying STEEM was by far the best one.

Since yesterday the price of STEEM has gone up around $2 when the Weiss Ratings news hit.

If you don't know yet, Weiss Ratings is an agency that has rated 75 cryptocurrencies and STEEM is in the top 5.

This is great news.

Of course, we already knew that this Blockchain is amazing. (3-second block times, no fees, scalable...just to name of few) but for investors not sure what to invest in this rating gives confidence in the blockchain and that's incredibly important.

There are so many different projects out there and this rating will act as an investment guide.

I talk about it more in my vlog.

I sometimes wonder about Steem as a going concern. On one hand, it's an innovative approach to social media, on the other hand, the community seems to want to eat itself like an ouroboros.

Accusations of "reward pool rape"
Actual "reward pool rape"

Millions of upvote beggars.

You know.....basic human nature stuff. The kind of petty bickering that starts out as a beautiful Christmas Eve family get together and ends up with the cops being called and Uncle Jimmy being hauled off to jail.

Lmfao!
yeah I get/ agree with you

@sirstacksalot
in my recent post about why i love steemit and steemians i did reiterate using what my people usually say that if you play any tune in a compound of a great man, there is always someone to dance to it. steemit has good, bad, ugly and when money is involved, the humn nature as you rightly pointed out sets in. but hey, its also good for the system to point out the ills and fight it out so we become the best we are destined to be as steemians. heading to your blog. great comment

·

I have faith in this amazing technology. Steem to the MOON!

This is a proven product that hasn’t thousands of users. Most other cryptos have nothing but a promise. Believe in STEEM!

·

What is your definition of Moon?
it already did go x5-x6 in a short time :)

·
·

follow for follow

·

And we are all along for the ride!!!

·
·

Yessir! I wish I was a little more in on the ride last year, but that's the way it goes!

·

Steem has kind of got me hooked... in a good way..

I find it a good challenge. The more I learn and unravel about how to use this platform correctly, the more I find myself wanting to spend here. There are a few folks I am learning to really read, or listen to when they post. "@exyle" is one that I am learning to grab my quick updates from.

I am happy that I am already here. Steemit will become a big player on the internet and will beat YouTube and Co very soon. Big times are coming up.

·
·

And to the moon we go! With the power of Steem!

·

I can totally see Steem becoming a massive success, especially since it has already grown so much in so little time. STEEM SHALL MOON!

Great news. I predict that Steem price will multiply by 10 until the end of this year

The crypto world does read the news about the Weiss report.

Steem price is going up during the time when most altcoins are following their tales.
It is ingenious to all steemians hang on HODL.
The future is bright.
Keep on steemin'

·

yes u right and from this coin, many jobless people earn at home, steemit steemit everywhere <3
@sibtainali

·

If you are very right, Steemit is one of the best currencies in the market to invest without fear of losing your profit!

·
·

Yep, as long as you stay engaged you always earn at least something.

·
·

I totally agree with your thoughts
yes

·
·

There is no such thing as an investment without risk.

The biggest indication for me is simply that people USE this crypto. The platform is brilliant, the community is fantastic....Sure there are problems but long term, I see a huge future.

Love that Weiss put it in the top 5!!

But regardless of price, I'm in love with the platform! High prices to me are just a bonus :) Thanks for everything you do sir, it's appreciated by us minnows!

·

Yeh it was great to see Weiss take into account the fundamental strengths of STEEM and just how much it's REALLY used. It's still way undervalued compared to other crypto but it's nice to see those ratings give the price a nice boost in the right irection.

·
·

do you believe Weiss is taking the crypto communities seriously in their ratings?

·
·
·

Could have something to do with it, it would be foolish not to take it into account. I'm sure the fact that STEEM has a large community of people really using the blockchain helped get it a good rating

·
·
·
·

For sure. But what about the rest that are not a social platform? It seems like some of their audiences could literally swing something one way or the other.

·
·

I totally agree with your thoughts

·

Totally agree. Please do not forget thinking about bitshares, as it is the perfect complement.

·

That´s exactly the point and I wrote about this some days ago. It´s the only blockchain you can use, which makes it obviously superior to any other crypto on the market!

·
·

Completely agree! If the price goes to 10 bucks or higher, great. If it goes to 1 buck. Cool...I'm still using Steemit and SBD / Steem every day regardless. It's brilliant and the rest of the world is slowly catching on.

·
·
·

It's a pretty addictive platform. I'm definitely in it for the ride regardless of the price.

·
·
·

Well said! We have to take this stand when talking to people about STEEM. I don´t think, that it´s a good idea, to market STEEM solely with its earning potential. There is so much more to it, people have to know about!

·
·
·

this platform should defeat facebook and twitter

·

Absolutely. The network capacity and transactions being done blow everything else away. It's not just a concept in progress, we have a working product. That is really rare in the crypto world right now.

·

in 5 year time steem gonna replace facebook

·

I agree with you. Is there a way on how to see the number of engagements in steem? or at least the number of user per day? I just want to see how steemit progress in the upcoming days. Thanks

·
·

@penguinpablo brings some good stats regularly
@paulag does the in depth analytics
start with those 2 and go from there

·
·
·

Thank you for this!

·
·
·
·

no worries, we are here to help others, and sharing knowledge does not cost me anything and some have done it for me when i first came to steem

·
·
·

I totally agree with your thoughts

·

True, some cryptos are far from being in use. STEEM does something already (like Ethereum, bitcoin and the others in the Weiss Ratings Top 10:

https://steemit.com/crypto/@steckxftw/weiss-crypto-ratings-top-10-crypto-2018-with-links

·
·

I agree like anything else when things grow there will be things that need to done to make it work better Steemit is still young and has lots of more to grow.

·

I agree. There is value in utility and having proof of concept utility. I would hope more investors will be interested in the Steem platform and see what other functions we can add to the platform.

·
·

I think the more projects we get up and running the more it will go up. People will have way more opportunities to get exposed to it the more applications are built.

·
·

steemit using pure proof of concept. It will be a revolutionary way to blogging.

·

I totally agree with your thoughts

Weiss before and after SMTs

steem best token

it's good!

Absolutely, This is really a big news for the growth of this great platform...Crypto investors, who are serious for long-term success will definitely look to this platform after the Weiss Rating.

·

I totally agree with your thoughts

·

Yeah that is what Steen/it need's... People believing in it, along with slight improvements and more content and investing for the long term ( more people buying/ holding than selling)

Great to see Steem get a solid score from a reputable source like Weiss Ratings. With the massive amount of projects in development right now this in my opinion was much needed in the space. For being "newcomers" I am pretty impressed with their report overall to be honest.

·

I'm also impressed by their report which is similar to my point of view on all these cryptocurrencies. I'm glad they came into helping potential investors in the crypto markets. We are getting closer and closer to the trillion marketcap, mass adoption will come in the near future.

·

This is great news to me, but I've been wondering what they used as tool to rate these coin, putting Steem and NEO up.

Yeah...Steem would be awesome as you told before. Now steem was top 5 list in cryptocurrencies. Steem buying best way. Also Users can still buy and trade Steem tokens as easily as they would any other cryptocurrency, and because they are also rewarded for contributions and commitment to the network over the long term, there are major incentives in place to help keep Steem stable.

·

It is the only blockchain that people really engage with every day.

·

nice my steemit frineds wish yours good luk

·

I totally agree with your thoughts

I hope someone will subscribe Weiss Cryp. ratings, paying 450$/year, and will share some screenshot of the list.
I'm curious to see it - but I don't think it is worth 450$ ;)

·

Here is another guy who posted this report

https://steemit.com/weissratings/@swpnl7/the-weiss-cryptocurrency-ratings-independent-unbaised-accurate-trusted

If something important is published about STEEM - we gonna get it! 😀

·
·
·

yay! thank you! :)

·
·
·

That is a pricey gift! haha

·
·

glad to see that the 5 cryptos in the B rating are all in my wallet (well, except ETH that I sold some week ago ^^) :)

·

I totally agree with your thoughts

Great post man! I had no idea =D Im new here! Post upvoted and Im gonna watch you. My names levi and im an artist.. come check out my stuff when you get a sec ^_^. 8.jpg

·

You are the artist, you should doing great by post your work on this site, you can make money by doing your own stuff you like.

This is huge news to us. Steem gives up best features currently of no transactions fees, three second immediate times etc...Steem is changing the way we use social media, by allowing users to earn rewards for their active participation. By putting an incentive behind interaction, this technology is creating a thriving community where quality content matters. We also waiting to see more gaining pass over $10.

This is exactly what we need, some exposure. Most of the growth here has been word of mouth, wait until we get some serious media stories...

·

It's actually amazing how far STEEM has come with such little media attention. I hope they're ready to get a huge influx of users.

Great to see STEEM validated by an independent agency. I had a good feeling when I heard that these ratings were coming because I knew that STEEMs high real-word usage would count in it's favour and it was fantastic to see it given a top 5 ranking. Next stop top 5 on coinmarketcap!... I wish

·

I totally agree with your thoughts

A positive review by an independent organization legitimizes Steem as a bona fide means of trade, but now we need confirmation by another. History will eventually be the ultimate judge and right now it looks as though time will be on our side. It will be a bumpy ride, enjoy! Let's make history!

·

Yeah, if we get a few more ratings it'll definitely get the attention of institutional investors, I think.

Truely, Weiss' recent rating will boost investor's confidence to invest in Steem. The recent up surge in Steem market value might not be unconnected with that pronouncement. Steem has all it takes to be on top of the game. Thanks @exyle

This is awesome news. Does anyone know the status of SMT and if there is the release date?

·

I think we should get an update pretty soon. There has been a lomg time without any news

·
·

how much time? any prediction? :)

·

There will be an update about the Appics ICO on the 28th I believe

Steem for the win! Going to check out that Weiss Ratings website right now. Thanks!

Hi there, I remember you posted before about the VISA Debit card service that you use. What was that again?

·

It's called Wirex. I think they are in the process of renewing the cards (they had some problems).

·
·

Thanks. How are you? It's been a while.

I hadn't heard of this Weiss thing, excellent stuffs! At long last some well deserved recognition!

·

Yeah it's great news!

·

I totally agree with your thoughts

@exyle

As more of these type of agency's start evaluating Crypto and give due to the proper alts , Investors will follow them and we will be in for a nice ride with the value of Steem going Up.

WOW! and to be in the top 5 is just AWESOME

·

Yeah, I'm hoping more institutional investing in solid projects will turn the top into into less of a wild west crapshoot.

wow that's an excellent news indeed and honestly i don't much about weiss rating but today courtesy to your post and video i understand the weiss rating and friend i think that's why steem is going upwards like crazy and now we might see at least 10$ steem soon, thanks for sharing this all important news with us, Stay blessed

·

I totally agree with your thoughts

I'm totally agreed that steemians are luckiest people in the world and specially those who have HODLED SP.
According to the Weiss Ratings:
STEEM is in the top 5 in 75 selected cryptocurrencies.

This is so amazing feeling. Thanks @exyle for giving us such a wonderful news. You really made my day. All the best!

·

I totally agree with your thoughts

·

It will become bigger and bigger as soon as people will hear from it. If we all tell our friends family and spread the word about steemit in 1-2 years there will be huge potential. The steemit dev team needs to catch up as well with fixing the bugs and improving the platform overtime.

If you're intersted in posts of valuable content on crypto you can check out my blog.

Damn...I was hoping it stays low-ish for a few more months so that I can buy more steemit at such an incredibly cheap price.

Then again, considering the long-term potential of steem the current price still looks incredibly cheap. Just thinking about the fact that steem grows organically on Google and other search engines as more quality posts show up is mind boggling. It is only a matter of time until this snowballs!

Steem finally got the high light and went to the mainstream with this move there is no coming back now just all the way to the moon :)

Thank you for sharing that, @exyle. Upvoted @ 100% Yes, Steem is most important and their approval only bolsters that.

Great news for us all:)

·

yes it's a big news for all of us :)

Explains the price :)

Sometimes it does not need more than a catalyst to keep things moving. I would however want for the price to stay low for a while in order to being able to accumulate more Steem.

Vlog 200: The Weiss Rating gives confidence to investors that the EOS blockchain is worth and safe to invest in.

·

Yeah, it has definitely made me take another look at it. I never read up on it because I've kind of gotten burned out researching all the coins I want to invest in. There's a lot out there!

I am convinced that this is only the beginning. I am waiting especially for the SMTs (when are they there...) and then things will keep going by itself.

Awesome stuff! Loving the price of steem today!

I agree with you too @jongolson

Amazing top 5 awesome thanks for the great news! Boom18F48EAF-DEAF-468A-A657-3326C73FE956.jpeg

It's already in the top five? Well... No surprise.
Anyone who knows a little bit about the platform can see the value.

I'm pretty sure we will see steem on top 10 again one day! We have one of the best and most active communities and there are a lot of eco systems developing around the steem blockchain, like utopian, dtube, dlive and dmania.

·

we hope steem will be on top one day :)

·

steem is still an early baby but is one of the coins of which project provide a lot of value rather than transfering a coin from point A to point B

ITS GIVING ME MORE CONFIDENCE TO HODLE MY STEEM

·

that's fine. Hold steem it will rise up to a huge price :)

·
·

not just hodl but moving our main attention from popular social media platforms to steemit, also spreading the word to friends/ family and people we have conversations with.

That's also a big idea to spread this platform
:)
@hamza77

@exyle sir...
Digital money can make us rich to deal with ourselves. I genuinely trust that. Be that as it may, what I additionally accept is that it will influence us to sufficiently fit to serve the penniless also.

It is absolutely difficult for all to give. Every one is battling in their own specific manners. In any case, that is the magnificence of life is it not? One who has seen the intense time will identify towards the one enduring. Such a one when independent can promptly consider helping other people. When I put in endeavors to gain, I should put in little endeavors along to share.

One might be poor out of absence of education, another might be expected life's weight of overwhelming obligations, another might be out of sheer apathy and some might be not able meet the sudden needs of life. In any case, the truth of the matter is same. They all need assistance. From numerous points of view it can be tended to....

Im a big believer in this currency partially because we help control the destiny of it, through proactive, positive use of this platform. Unique opportunity!

·

I'm feeling blessed to be an early adoptor of steemit to be hones!

Nice work in creating this leaderboard.

will do

@exyle I just know that we are here now and we know how everyone is going to come to STEEMIT. Those that Benefit most are here and participating Now................

One should realize that Weiss is new in this business and without any experiences. So their ratings should be used with caution, even if they are supporting our opinions.
Personally I do not know if it is really beneficial to push STEEM/SDB currently even more. Maybe a more consistent and slower increase in price would be preferable, especially at there is no unique opinion on how to treat SBD-Dollar parity.

I got a better confidence in steem compared to other crypto since steem and steemit has purpose and that is to motivate bloggers and articles writers to post quality content. In short, it's creating a community which in later part will definitely be rewarding.

Great news big brother u r my inspiration

This boost really helped so that we as creators to enjoy the added benefit.

This really great hearing that steem is rated as the top 5 cryptocurrency, this a good news to me this morning. I believe it will stand more higher in the future.
Thanks for sharing mark

Just imagin when we have smart contracts on steem the million applications this Blockchain will have :) .
Future is bright :D

Actually this rating gave good turnover and people can look on the bright side about steemit in Korea. All community have been boosted well against some down trend.
You can achieve as much as you are in confident and evaluate in depth. Good choice everybody here.

steem will beat facebook in 5 year time

I Agree that steemit is the best and safe line to invest

SO freaking excited today! I was having a bad day but bad day no more! lol Full STEEM ahead!

How about the DDoS attacks coming from Korea that shut the Weiss site down? A lot of people were very unhappy with the ratings. In an interview I watched Weiss stated that the recent downturn in the crypto market causes the scores to be lower than expected. Check out my Dtube channel: https://d.tube/#!/c/cryptobtcchris

I see steem and steem dollar going places. I am happy and proud to have been a part of this revolution even though i started out late. All the same, it's better late than never. Right?

That a great viewing. Iam happy to join it. Keep post some usefull posting in the nest time. I'll be waiting for your posting

waawwwwwwwwww

thanks for your post

I wonder what crypto traders would do when they realize they never gave regard to steem!😂😂😂
Steem blockchain is truly amazing!

Now with the steem exploding in prices we can be sure something great is going to happen soon :)

Great hope the weiss rating is further increase.Now every one doing power up...

Si es un exito. hay que motivar a invertir en steem. Aunque en las cripto todo es fluctuante. Buen Post @blockbrothers

Weiss ratings top 5 ☺
That's great
With more time and building, we'll be 1

Awesome ... Best social media ever ... I am new here u guys can help to get to know more #steemit @kelvinbryant

@exyle,
Yeah it was a great news! 2018 is the year of STEEM! Thanks for updating this news to the community!

Cheers~

I covered the Weiss Crypto Ratings in this video on Dtube - https://d.tube/v/cryptobtcchris/29kteivl

I like your article and I have your folow if you have time to visit my bog because I am new member in steemit

Thats really a good news, this means that some of our brothers and sisters will be joining us soon.

I agree Steem would be awesome. Thanks for great information.

The steem buy opportunity was very nice, i bought from 3.80 dollar too but very little amount :) By the way good luck have fun. Glad to be here on Steemit.

We expect the steem price to go even farther than this. Steem blockchain is great and as a programmer, i'm considering taking a look at it.

happy to hear that the steam got 2 $ plus. May be this because of the work being done by all the fellows here. Also, the importance given to all the steamians' tendency of share and care :)

Something that's really important here is that this Cryptocurrency is used beyond trading that I think makes it a bit better. It seems a lot of the times, cryptos are just traded on exchanges, with no reason to exist at all.

Something that has come out and being supported by people is right most of the times. And also it is bringing old village model of the economy to technology.

A decentralized economy for all, by all and of all. It has to succeed.

how cool patience could be sometime and steem is just the prefect example of that wow can't believe my eyes right now :)

Steem is the best and ever... steem will never die. steem makes real cryptocurrencies.
Realy informative topices.
great to share
thanks sir

Great!It will help us to win!We should now keep the steam dollar deposited.We can invest with steem!
Steam is moving us upwards.Thanks for the articles.@exyle

How can we take the Weiss Ratings seriously when Bitcoin, the first and most robust crypto of them all, one that has survived numerous dips and still has the top market cap only gets a C+?

·

have you tried to use it lately?

I'm looking around to understand the criteria of evaluation for these report. Weiss is a decent agency but still would be interesting to see what should a rating look at. Not to say that BTC is not in top 5.

Thanks at information

its great news thanks for me

I don't know how relevant weiss ratings is to be honest but any news and talks on steemit is will benefit the platform in the long term!!

And that's why I am happy to be on this platform.

I totally agree that the block chain is an awesome technology especially the way that the steemit platform utilizes it. However, I still think that this site has a long way to go in working out imbalances to make the site more of a level playing field for its users (i.e the battle amongst the whales going on now). I think that a large part of steem valuation will be dependent on how this plays out moving forward.

With this rating given by Weiss, I'm sure the steem blockchain will be flocked with members pretty soon!
What do you expect from a platform that not just rewards but promotes community growth!
