You can schedule a post to publish it in the future in Steem blockchain. But you have to use Steemauto for scheduling your post to publish in the future. You can draft the post and set the time of publishing and Steemauto will do the rest for you.
Go to: https://steemauto.com/. Use Steem ID and private posting key to log in to Steemauto.
Once you land into your dashboard, you can see a variety of links/tabs; click on "Schedule posts".
Now you will have an interface that is similar to Steemit. Here you can draft your post, Put the title, add tags, select the reward(by default it is 50/50). The only additional feature(the important feature) is to select the time to publish the post. The current date and time are displayed. In the "Publish at" option you can choose date and time in the drop-down menu(which are of 1hr intervals and displayed in an incremental increase of 1hr).
It is both HTML and Markdown supported, so one can copy and paste the Steemit post here and can set the time to publish it in the future.
Once you are done with the formatting of your post, select the time and date of publishing(future), then click on "Submit".
Your post is now scheduled for publishing at a time in the future which is set by you.
You can also see your post in the Scheduled posts list and it will also show after how much time the post is going to be published in Steem blockchain.
You can also delete your scheduled post before the set time, should you wish to.
