When I first arrived on Steemit about two weeks and $50,000 ago, I was shocked at what I had stumbled upon.
I posted about my success on the site and countless people called it a scam.
I responded, "Usually a scam is where you lose money, not make money."
Those who replied had no response to this. Many would just repeat, "This is a scam and you are a scammer!"
Confused, I began to look into these allegations of Steemit being a scam... and perhaps the worst designed scam of all time, since all it does is give money to people who produce good content.
All roads seemed to lead to one man: Tone Vays. When I pushed the people alleging Steemit was a "scam" or a "ponzi scheme" enough they eventually would retort, "Just listen to what Tone Vays says."
Tone is actually a friend of mine. He's been on my show Anarchast twice and spoke at the last two Anarchapulco (http://anarchapulco.com) events.
So, getting a hold of him wasn't a problem and he agreed to a debate/conversation on Steem and Steemit.
And, you can see the debate exclusively here on Steemit (until the end of the upvoting period the video is unlisted on Youtube):
We got into every aspect of Steemit from the technical details to the big picture of how it could be a paradigm shift in how social media is done online.
You may be surprised to see how it turns out!
As a note, many anti-Steem people will be down voting the video and posting negative comments on Youtube once it goes live. You, as a Steemer, get the opportunity to give it the "thumbs up" and post positive comments before the troll brigade arrives.
If you do enjoy our debate, please make sure to give it a like on Youtube... and, as always, follow me here on Steemit for more exclusive content to come.
